3rd March 2018 - Advance Fee Fraud Scam

On 3rd March 2018, telephone number +22960306398 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Ibrahim M. Hassan using email address as part of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam.

In Advance Fee Fraud Scams, the scammer will offer you something of high value (a large sum of money or gold for example) and all you have to do is pay a "small" fee. What the scammer is offering you does not actually exist and the scammer will come up with fee after fee that needs to be paid by the victims, until he either runs out of money or realises that he has been scammed. The scammer will often pretend to be real people or companies, use fake websites and introduce various characters, all with the aim of convincing the victim that what is being offered to him is real.

Here is the email that the scammer sent to his victims.

Attention, Dear Beneficiary

This letter is from International Monitory Fund, Washington, D.C. United
States. Last week Monday, at 2:30PM, I received an order from Christine
Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund to investigate a
huge amount of money that had recently arrived in one of the accounts of
Barclays Bank PLC (New York Branch), United States. When I did, the Managing
Director of Barclays Bank PLC, New York confirmed that a sum of $10,700,000 was
transferred to their account with only the Certificate of Ownership of the
beneficiary posted via postal mail.

In adherence to the United States Monetary Law (31 U.S. Code Subtitle IV -
MONEY: CHAPTER 53 - MONETARY TRANSACTIONS (§§ 5301 to 5367)), and the
International Monetary Fund Regulations on Banking & Money, I wish to
officially state that the $10,700,000 that was recently transferred to the
Barclays Bank PLC in your name from Atlantic Bank Group Benin without
verifiable documents, such as Money Laundering Clearance Certificate, Tax
Clearance Certificate, or Origin of Funds' Certificate is illegal. The
Certificate of Ownership is not sufficient enough to prove that the funds
entered US soil legally.

We are not in any way implying that you are not the owner of the
$10,700,000.00; we are only following the legal, financial and monetary
processes to combat illegal transactions and money laundering in the world. You
must obtain Money Laundering Clearance Certificate to back you up which will
cost you $499 only. And you are required to send this money to the origin of
the funds, which is Benin Republic where the document will be obtained and
approved by the Justice of the High Court through the service of a lawyer. The
name of the lawyer is Barrister Ibrahim M. Hassan. Barrister Ibrahim M. Hassan
is a Senior Attorney at HASSAN & ASSOCIATES LAW FIRM. You are advised to
contact him for the document. Once the document is obtained the Barclays Bank
PLC, New York will transfer your funds to your bank account legally.

Contact Barrister Ibrahim M. Hassan: Phone: +229 60 30 63 98/Email:

Fill out your details and send to him:

1. Full Name:
