If you are in contact with anyone with the information posted then it is a scam.


I can't disagree with scammers being opportunistic. What information did you receive about Al Bassam that caused you to list them as scammers?

Mod Note: This post was made the scammer himself in an attempt to avoid losing victims. We are leaving it here to show how low these criminals will go to steal from their innocent vicitms.

GENTLEMEN, I CAN'T GIVE SO MUCH INFO HERE AS NECESSARY BUT WILL DRIVE TO THE POINT. I AM POSTING THIS ON BEHALF OF A FRIEND I MADE RECENTLY ON A TRIP I HAD AND HIS BUSINESS. PERSONALLY I DON'T THINK DR. MUHANNA NURIN NABIL AND HIS TEAM AT AL BASSAM HOLDINGS ARE WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN PAINTED TO BE. I RECENTLY MET WITH MR. KAMAL KANAAN WHO IS AN EXECUTIVE MEMBER OF AL BASSAM HOLDINGS AND WAS SUPRISED TO HEAR THE REAL STORY ABOUT HIS FIRM. HE TOLD ME THAT THEIR WEBSITE WAS CLONED BY SOME WEB HACKERS WHO USED THEIR COMPANY NAME TO CON UNSUSPECTING VICTIMS FROM MONIES OF DIFFERENT RANGES ALL IN A BID TO PROVIDE A LOAN PORTFOLIO. THESE HACKERS LINKED HIS COMPANY AL BASSAM HOLDINGS TO ANOTHER SIMILAR ENTITY AL BASSAM INVESTMENT CO WLL AND IT WAS TAKEN AS A STOLEN INDENTITY. HOWEVER, BOTH COMPANIES ARE IN BAHRAIN AND EVER SINCE THEY HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO REACH OUT TO POTENTIAL PARTNERS AS THEY MANAGE ALREADY EXISTING ONES IN THEIR PORTFORLIO. MR. KAMAL AND DR. MUHANNA ARE BOTH EXPERIENCED INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE HELPED COMPANIES IN THE GULF REGION GET BACK TO THEIR FEET THROUGH FINANCING, MAJORLY THROUGH THE SUKUK PROGRAM INITIATED BY THE BAHRAIN GOVERNMENT. IN THIS LITE I WISH TO SOLICITE AND ENCOURAGE POTENTIAL PARTNERS TO PROCEED WITH ALL NEGOTIATIONS. TO CLEAR ALL DOUBTS I ADVICE YOU VISIT MR. KAMAL AT HIS HOME IN BFH WEST TOWER. I KNOW IT MAY SOUND BLURRY BUT I'M NOT A LONE WITNESS, I HAVE GONE FOR A MEETING AND I AM CONVINCED THESE INDIVIDUALS ARE RESPONSIBLE AND REPUTABLE BUSINESS MEN.

The scammer also uses email address [email protected].

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

They have stolen the identity of another well known Bahrain investment company called Al Bassam Investment Co. Good looking website operated by experienced scammers. The real company does not use this domain.
Domain was registered in May 2017 by someone previously involved with scam websites. Website is hosted in Bulgaria. A couple of the front people scouting for business are:
Adel Tariq [email protected]
Rayan Hamda [email protected]
They are also using LinkedIn to contact members.


Thank you for this information. I think these guys may be at it again. Our company received an unsolicited linkedin email from a representative of Al Mojil Holdings in Dec 2017:

http://www.almojilholdings.com

They requested our company presentation and did limited due diligence before asking to schedule a skype call. The following morning they extended term sheets for our full financing round with very favorable terms. After several email exchanges with our attorneys they sent a request for a "broker's fee" of $30K. That was a total red flag.

Long story short the firm Al Mojil Holdings looks like a legitimate firm in Bahrain and Dubai, founded in 2008, however the website I linked above was only created in Nov 2017.

Finally, I searched their board members on Linkedin and found one of them has a "recommendation" from Adel Tariq of "Al Bassam Investments" and that pretty much completed the story here.

Looks like they've spoofed a legit investment firm and started this scam. Wondering if anyone else has experience with Al Mojil Holdings.

Runs a website http://globalfs.webs.com/ known as "Global Financial" - supposedly financing companies.

From the website

" HOW OUR PROCESS WORKS
1. Initial interview via phone , meeting or email. Submit application and fees.
2. You will be sent our criteria that shows how to prepare your project. We will send you sample projects to give you a snap shot of what a project would look like.
3. A conference call will be set up by our senior adviser via phone to review the criteria and discuss your project.
4. Put together project based on our criteria, then submit to us. We then begin the funding search with our over 9000 investment groups.
5. You are funded."


The "Application form"

Some snippets follow, this is priceless. The entire form is simply typed up not even an SSL certificate or authentication not even a proper web form (one would think that a "Global Financial Institution" could afford to have a proper form created, I guess not in this case. just a typed up form that you need to fill in (send the application fee of course $3000.00)

For your $3000.00 you get the following stellar service offered to you

  • Preliminary screening of Applicant?s Project for funding or potential funding
  • Identify all potential funds or funding for this project or projects
  • Identify funding Application process
  • Provide all communications between Applicant and Funds or Investor.
  • Evaluate Preliminary Applicants Funding Application and/or Proposals with potential Investor.


So, for your $3000.00 you get

The Consultant will provide professional services as identifies in 3 above.
All fees (Retainer) are considered compensation for the Consultant?s (sic) professional services. Consultant makes no claims or guaranty regarding the actual awards of funding


Looks like you pay the $3000.00 and get lip service.

This site is highly suspect.

Thanks for posting. I've merged your post with the original topic on this scammer as we like to keep things all in one place so that it is easier for victims to keep track of.

globalfs.webs.com is a fake website on a free hosting platform. Not something that a legitimate business in a regulated industry would be using.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

This phoney targeted me as well.

I had a look at the BBB profile for his fake company Global Financial Systems and Solutions, which is not an accredited listing, it was created by BBB after someone complained that Global Financial Systems and Solutions stole $3,000 from them.

His profile has 3 positive reviews all posted on the same day March 23 this year. That stinks of being fake testimonials.

There is also no trace of this claimed company Global Financial Systems and Solutions being registered in Florida.

There's also a few more email addresses on the BBB listing

Hi, anyone stop this guy or know how?

He is using my family's holding company to supposedly raise money. He used two of our co-workers names, our address, and a fake phone number to commit fraud. Here's that e-mail and all the websites/e-mails associated with it. He seems to use the same domain host for all the websites, namecheap.com. Namecheap has a phone number in bakersfield where I used to live, so I wonder if I know the person creating it. It was also created on my birthday, and uses some ideas I've had about my family's company in the fraudulent website caroneenergy.com. More reasons I suspect I know the person.

Salaam Ahmed and group, We have reached out to Arab Eastern Insurance and have received their requirements. Our response will be sent early next week. Can we get a couple of references/contacts for companies that have done projects with Al Manal. United States contacts would be best but not required. We look forward to working together on this project and the continued expansion of our edge computing network.
