29th November 2018 - Advance Fee Fraud Scam

On 29th November 2018, telephone number +22992547240 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Allain Kefas using email address allainkefas2104@gmail.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.
Good morning my dear ,

Thank you for your email with content well understood.I will like you to understand in details the nature of this proposal and if you consider it acceptable,before we can proceed further.

The nature of this transaction in details:

Be informed that this is not a child's play or a scam where the cheat will be after your hard earned fund, I am interested in a long term relationship that is why I would like to made everything plain and clear from the start, As you should understand clearly that this payment has not been previously established in your name, hence it will pass through the normal approval process therefore there are some administrative protocols and certain expenses a beneficiary contractor must comply with in order to befit the contract funds approval in his/her favor. therefore as my partner in this transaction you have a vital role to play.

Again note that you are participating in this deal based on the same vested interest as me, so you must be prepared to assist where necessary with maximum cooperation to ensure success. This point is very clear. Please take your time and decide if it is acceptable to you.

.....A popular American Television talk show host Oprah Winfrey once said, only in the dictionary that you can see the word SUCCESS coming before WORK. therefore I will not force you to partner with me in this deal.... after all; "Success in life is not just the function of OPPORTUNITY but also of CHOICE: and only those who takes risk can be successful".


I am not trying to convince you to trust me, because from my little past experience I learnt that one does not demand Trust rather it must be proven .
I am a public civil servant, I have a steady job, I arranged this deal because I see it as an opportunity that can benefit our both families financially.
This is the only way we in the civil service usually cut our own fair share of the national cake from the government treasury without the government knowing anything about it.

if I had have the financial ability to fund the whole expenses of this transaction by myself, I would not have invited you to join me ; Note that I am very delighted to be associated with your personality, again I lack words to express my joy for your kind and sincere assistance in helping me actualize this deal.

You cannot believe how difficult it has been working under our present Government administration, could you believe that we are being owed over four (4) month's salary arrears, We are only surviving through the special grace of God, so taking care of my family and coping with other expenses has not been easy at all. So for you helping me to realize this deal will be
the greatest thing happening to me, so I will regard you as a friend, brother and a business partner I promise not to let you down and I will never forget you in my life.

With my explanation in my previous letter to you , you should have understand the origin of the funds, where the funds is and how we are going to realize the payment to you. , attached is the copy latter Bank POF statement .


That is the reason why I want to present you to stand as the beneficiary foreign contractor to complete on my behalf this payment approval processing in order to enable the payment approval department of the National public Contract procurement Board to issue to the paying Bank the final release order of the contract funds in your favor, thus facilitating immediate transferring of the funds to the bank account which you will provide.... the payment mode is bank to bank 100% wire transfer so All bank transferring charges will be deducted from the principal funds by the bank.

I attached with this email my valid Identification documents for your file, please confirm if you be able to open the attachments. Please I would respectfully request that you keep all the documents and information private (non disclosure) as I will also keep yours.


God bless you.
