Now the bank account is real, and belongs to a real company that is listed as a "non=profit" organisation in the US. This is so that they do not have to produce accounts I think. It has been reported, but so far it seems to have evaded closure.
There is also a website that was based on a real financial organisations website. Attempts have been made to try and shut the website but so far with no success.

The point is, if anyone gets an email from [email protected], PLEASE PLEASE do not send any money. It will be lost, and you WILL be asked for more and more.
