Hey,

I have received it today again, but don't worry it's a true scam, coz just around August 17 we were discussing here the SAME scam from Arrow Financial Group. The e-mail text is basically the same, so if you reply to it you will receive a "contract" and they will also ask for your account number :)

I think we need to respond positively to offers of employment from offenders and simultaneously posted to inform the police. Police will get in this way, all data able to track and detect them. Thus we will create confusion in their ranks. will not know if behind the "employees" are naive or police. I have done so - provided the data account that no longer use and have provided all information to the police. Just cutting off contact with them will only help the offenders to solve a more efficient selection.

Hi adrian,

unfortunately, there is little the police can do. The scammers live outside the jurisdiction of your local law enforcement, and they operate anonymously. Getting involved the police of their own country would mean a lot of international bureaucracy, an effort that will only be made if there is a vast amount of hard prove. Email correspondence does not meet these requirements.

We can try to get fraudulent websites closed, and our specialists are doing a good job there.

And it does not help entering a correspondence with these criminals. You will not gain additional information, they are expert liers. But they will realise that they have got hold of a working email address - yours - and will send you lots of spam and scam emails.

Hello adrian08,

Katharina is correct. If we could just collect a couple of emails and turn them over to the police, we would certainly do that all day long. Rules of evidence are different in a court of law than in our wishes. Scammers are crafty and have always been crafty. Internet is just one way scammers work.

We advise victims to stop contact because the scammer has real life information about the person involved. The victim has no real life information about the scammer. It is a one way street of information.

If you have gone to the police, and have the results of an outcome, please share that with us here.

Bubbles, former Scamwarners moderator.

Rest in Peace 24 June 2015.

Gone, but never forgotten.

Hello to everyone
This is the last email received from "Ricky Morgan"

<<<< Dear xxxxxx,

Thank you for your confirmation. Here is the information about the first
transfer:

Our client (W.M. Wijlaars) had sent you one transfer today; its total
amount is 5897 EUR.

Money will come to your account on during 2 days.
Check your account every day!


After you will receive the money, please:

1. Go to the bank and cash out the money (physically).

2. Deduct your 5% commission (this time it's 295 EUR).

3. Send the amount ( 5602 EUR) to our representative via Western
Union:
Note: Please send the Western Union transfers with SAMEDAY processing (it's
usually available for pick up in 15 minutes).

First name: RUSKAJON
Last name: PIRLIEVA
Location city: Saint-Petersburg
Location country: Russia

This information is important; if even one letter will be incorrect our
representative will be unable to pick up the money. That’s why it’s better
to check the information once again when it is completed by the clerk,
than waste your time by fixing it later.
NOTE that Western Union/Money Gram operators do mistakes very often, so
please check twice and that's a good idea to print or write our
representative's details and give it to them.

The Western Union/Money Gram transfer fees should be deducted from our 95%
NOT FROM YOUR 5%! When completed, please send us the money transfer
control number (MTCN) from Western Union and the Reference Number (RN)
from Money Gram. Don’t forget to send us the total amount sent, in US
Dollars also. If you have a chance to scan Western Union/Money Gram
receipt and send it back to me, it would be really appreciated.
Sometimes Western Union/MoneyGram may require a proof of your address to
accept such amount of money to send, so when you go to send the money
please have your ID/DL or any other proof of address with you.

To avoid possible delays this transfer shouldn't be declared as
commercial/business; declare it as a personal transfer (for example to
family member or a friend).

Sincerely yours,
Ricky Morgan >>>>>

Transfer was not carried out ??in my account. Police was expect the sender data (to learn more about involvement or discover a scam) and receiver data (to learn the route money). In this way, through international collaboration, involving police could have more serious impact on the scamers but also on their collaborators. With me, they had a larger volume of work and money spent on the phone. Imagine another 1000 like me.
I noticed that deception extends only for a month. They count on a short scam - with a transfer of money quickly. So you can not collect more data to track them
To get effective results, I believe we must use all possibilities of counterattack: Fighting on the Internet (and I'm sure you do very good work - congratulations from me), police involvement (because of that they fear the most) and deception on our part (not all are naive - believe that)

Keep up the good work !!!

Money will come to your account on during 2 days.
Check your account every day!


Hello adrian08,
if you really receive money into your account, you must contact the police immediately. Check your account every day for a couple of weeks. You don't want to be suspected of money laundering.
This money has come from criminal activities, either by scamming other victims or as the result of other crimes. Do not touch it, the police will try and restitute it to the victims.


And thanks to chrisa83 for your report - if you have got this from a different email account, please post it. You can see for yourself how important it is to protect others from this scam.
