Hi, I would like to know of this is a scam or not.
I have been e-mailing the UBS bank for opening online account.
This is the e-mail : [email protected]
And this is the last email I received
"
Dear Esteemed Customer,

Attention of XXX.

Note; that the [email protected] is a direct email to our accounting department here and you can also contact us on [email protected] So every UBS branch bank country have each of their operating email.

They need 250$ to open online account and they want me to send the money via western union

If you are sending the money via Western Union money transfer, this is the accountant receiver's name

Full Name : ISSA IRAKOZE

Given Name : ISSA
Surname : IRAKOZE
Address : Nil City El Maadi, Cairo Egypt
Amenount ; $250 US Dollars


The problem is I don't think this is scam because they asked me already to either come to the office or send the money and I might travel to go to the office but I don't want to waste money on traveling .
I would like to know if someone ever experienced this before.
Thanks in advance.

It's a definite scam.

[email protected] is a free email address, which is not something that an international bank would be using and [email protected] is a fake domain that the scammers have set up. Any emails from UBS would be sent from the ubs.com domain, with replies going back to the same domain.

Also, no bank would be asking you to open an account by email or send payment by Western Union.

Everyone involved in this transaction (including whoever referred you to the "bank" is fake and part of the scam.

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.

It belongs to UBS, but I guarantee that if you go there, no one will have a clue who you are or what you are talking about.
