11th March 2018 - Advance Fee Fraud Scam

On 11th March 2018, telephone number +22961147994 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Larry Richard using email address wu.fr@hotmail.com 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.
Dear beneficiary,

We have done the first transfer to your name with intention to continue
sending your money as planed through our Western Union system here. You can see
the details of the first payment OF US-$5,000.00 I already sent to you but the
IMF monitoring team placed the transfer ‘ON-Hold’ insisting that we should
obtain the approval since it is required by the law that any person or
institution transferring such amount of money of same value or even less must
duly obtain their approval well signed and stamped as evidence that the
transfer is genuine.

In order to come up with this requirement, we have already secure the requested
Certificate as required them which its scanned copy is ready to be sent to you
the only thing needed now to have this completed immediately is the stamp duty
fee of $240 from the Federal Ministry of finance and be rest assured that once
you send the stamp duty fee, the first transfer will be released for your
urgent pick up and we continue signing other payments immediately.

Do not see this as a plot to extort money from you because this has nothing to
do with scam. The payment information sent to you remains as it is, if you
doubt, you can go and track the payment to find out yourself that the payment
is ready for picking but the reason why it’s ON-HOLD is because the approval is
needed and we will have the finally approval as soon as the ministry of finance
signs as the certificate, that is only thing delaying your transfer now.

Here below is the info:
Your Tracking # (MTCN): 418-892-1990
