11th November 2018 - Advance Fee Fraud Scam

On 11th November 2018, telephone number +22998276782 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Jerry King using email address upscouriercomp@vf.vc 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.

information to them now so that they will delivery your ATM VISA CARD to

Like I started earlier, the delivery charges have been paid but I did
not
pay their official keeping fees since they refused. A reason for their
refusal is because they do not know when you are going to contact them.
They told me that their security keeping fee is $35 U.S.D per day and I
deposited it yesterday. So try and contact them immediately to avoid
increasing of their security keeping.

BELOW IS THEIR CONTACT INFORMATION'S:
