I'm a victim of 419 scam. The scam started through LinkedIn and thieved started to steel money September till December, 2013. Total loss was US$279,000.00. (5 times wire transfer to China, Taipei Hong Kong and Shanghai) Scammer gruop pretend from U.K. use name of Harry George (PhD, Legal), Dave Gilleland (Bank of Julian Hodge U.K.) and Mr. James Anderson (Diplomatic Courier) and deceived me that they want charity to Tsunami victim and need help etc. I was given ank information as well as invoice by scammers through e-mails.
So I only have scammer's accoplice's dummy conpamy name and ben's address.

Hong Kong: CHINA TRUST COMMERCIAL BANK LTD en's address was 18/F Cheung Kong 2 Queen's Road, Central, Central Dummy company name was MASTER GOLD INVESTMENT LINITED
Shanghai: BANK OF COMMUNICATION OFFSHORE BANKING CENTER, ben's address was 456 Ningqiao Rd, Pudong Shanghai. Dummy conpamy name was LEADMEGA LIMITED.
They are all Nigerian and use Nijeria mail account. I found out from Full Headers.
Master Gold and LEADMEGA are dummy company created specifically to collect the money to deceice vulnerable people all around the world! I7m asking you to consider and take proper action for this to avoid future victim from International fraud. I'm in very critical situetion because I used not only my money but also I used others wihout asking.
I would like to at least try to see the scammer including MASTER GOLD INVESTMENT LIMITED and LEADMEGA LIMITED pay for their illegal acts.
If some one know how to deal with China or have idea what ca do, please help me.

This article has some information in it. My understanding is that if the scam happened in China, then you need to physically go to the police in China to report it.

Maybe others here have some different information.

Most likely China or Taiwan are all money mules or gangs supporting Nigerian scammers by fake company bank accounts. The header analysis and the fake law firm whois result indicated Nigeria. Is it meaningful to find out these fake companies (owners of the bank acct)??

She is talking about this one.

This victim done lots of investigations already, and fake law firm is now down. Disconnected these scammers. Reported to police locally and to several authorities globally. Now she is understanding how this scam (next of kin / advance fee scam by fake lawyers and banker) works.

She must have been dissapointed by less or no reactions by authorities and government organizations and banks she has escalated to.

Anyone knows how these escalations she done will be more effective? The amount she lost is not small.
