Did they contact you by email? If so, could you post the email, including complete headers?

In the last letter where I ask him for full explanation for visit Russian rafinery they answer me:

Visiting is allowed and at the Refinery expenses but after confirmation of buyer's financial/payment instrument seller issues an official invitation letter to buyer's team.


I thing here is the catch ....??

Thank you for any suggestion

The text of the procedings alone say scam to me. I also did a google search on this name consult llc, and found an IT company with that name, and an advert on Alibaba from this same scammer who was using photos stolen from the internet. And if the prices are too good to be true, then it is just that! Walk away from this scam.

Being a victim doesn't mean you stand alone. We're here to help you.
