Hi ,
I'm in this situation right now, I'm a seller for some kind of online shop and here comes a buyer. The item cost is 50 and the buyer used Credit Europe Bank to transfer that amount to me. But, an email 'confirmation' was sent to my mail state that the amount is too small and can't be transferred. So the bank charges the buyer 1000 instead of 50. In this case, I need to return the buyer 950 to get 1000 credited into my account. I've experienced this kind of payment before and it was not a scam (I called to the bank, luckily it operates in my country). But I'm worried with this Credit Europe Bank as it doesn't operate in my country and I tried to call them (international call) but they keep me on hold. What should I do? The email 'confirmation' is sent by [email protected]

Welcome to Scamwarners,

It is a scam. The email is from a fake bank.

Stop contact with the scammer.

Sell your item face to face in a public place.

Banks do not hold your funds.

Hi, I just received this mail too... 100% comfirm it's scam right? Luckily i haven't transferred RM400 to "her".... The mail is like below...

Account Name: JAMIE KISTLER
Account Number: 140292699**
Bank Name: Credit Europe Bank
Account Type: Current
Transfer Type: INSTANT
Total Amount: RM 670.00
Transfer Status: Successful (pending)

Then I received another email.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON HOW TO COMPLETE THIS TRANSACTION (EN)
Dear Customer, we want you to understand that out top most concern is to serve you better. We want you to understand that this is an international transaction and the sum of 270.00 MYR cannot be received by you because it was insufficient to be approved by our data base and it's the World Bank Organization Policy. The least amount that can be approved starts from 670.00 MYR. We are sending you this message because we have already deducted an additional 400.00 MYR from your buyer's account (Automatically) so that it could reach the limit of transfer.

Therefore, we advice you to REFUND the balance of 400.00 MYR back by transferring the money to our Bank Agents account and send us the copy of the receipt for verification before we will unlock the 670.00 MYR into your account immediately.

Agent Verified Account To Transfer Balance To:

Bank Name - CIMB
Act holder~Noreha binti Muhamad Anuar
Acct No~ 7008046516

I have already blocked "her", but I previously sent "her" pics of my dress... Will "she" use my pics to do scam? This is my first time receiving scam mails... I don't know what to do....

It's impossible to say whether the scammer will use your pictures or not, but there isn't anything that you can do about it.

Please can you post the email addresses that the scammer is using, other victims may be looking for them.

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.

Good day Sir

I was sending a item to Nigeria. Then they said once the phone is transferred my money will be in my account. The next day they said the over-charged the buyer account and I need to pay €120 Euro so I did. They warned me that my name is given to the Interpol police an they will block my bank account if I do not pay it in. So the day after that they said again that they money was not enough and deducted more money from the buyers account and want me to pay €350 otherwise Interpol police will take legal steps towards me? Please help me I am desperately and so scared that something will happen to me. :(
