Again, we seem to have several fake banks who are cold calling consumers to tell them there is money in their accounts waiting to be transferred into the consumers’ account.
We all know there is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but there are fraudsters who think consumers will believe them if they tell them there is close to 100.000 Pounds waiting to be paid out.
This time we are talking about a fake and fraudulent set up, calling themselves the European Central Bank or ECB
The agent “Sanz de Moral” from this ECB- European Central Bank contacts the consumer on a cold call and then reconfirms by email the tail about the money.
The email comes from the following address: EuroCentBank@mail.com
“Thank you for your email communication, Yes we are pleased to confirm 98,500.00 Sterling that comes from various sources and this was paid to several banks in Spain.
We have also contacted the Spanish Authorities Gov.Es in order to complete these transfers please confirm you wish us to assign this to an in-house lawyer who will cover the certificate and verification as all this must be done legally to assure completion of transfer to your account in the UK, you will be assigned the lawyer should you wish to go ahead and you may communicate direct with your assigned lawyer you are required to pay the initial fee to the following who will be assigned to your case:
Lobana Razia Amarir – In house ABG
Ms. Lobana Razia Amarir, a lawyer that cannot be found in any register of lawyers in Spain, asks a fee of close to 1500 Euros for her services, to be paid into her personal bank account in Madrid.
Most worrying is that in the email they actually mention bank account details of the consumer, so they not only got hold of the personal contact details, and the history of having dealt with fraudsters in the past, they also know which bank account they have. Probably because the consumer paid the fraudsters from the past by bank transfer, but really this information should not be in the hands of these kind of scammers!
We cannot stress enough that there is no money waiting anywhere to be paid out! This is IMPOSSIBLE.
Don’t let fraudsters talk you into a new fraud and have you losing even more money!
If you have been approached by these fraudsters, please let us know!
