10th December 2018 - Advance Fee Fraud Scam

On 10th December 2018, telephone number +442033897179 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Thomas Mills working for Union Bancaire Privée using email address thomas_mills17@yahoo.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.
From: Mr. Thomas Mills
Tel: +442033897179
Union Bancaire Privée; (UBP SA)
Jersey Channel Islands,
PRIVATE AND URGENT.
I am Mr. Thomas Mills, and I am contacting you on business transfer of a huge sum of money from a deceased account. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day. I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.

PROPOSITION:

I am an account manager with UBP Bank here in Jersey Channel Islands, in charge of all nonresident accounts. I have been in this capacity working with the bank for the last 15 years and I joined this institution in 1983 as a junior clerk and worked my way up through the ranks. On assumption of duty in November 2002 I discovered a dormant account in my branch that was opened in 1985 in the name of Karl Henning and I have kept close tab on this very account for the last 15 years and it has remained dormant even from the day the first deposit of (US$37, 000,000,00)Thirty Seven Million United States dollars was made to this moment, we have been investigating this account for the past 15 years and discovered that Karl Henning was used as Pseudonym Name to open the account while the original owner of the funds in question was the late president of Philippines Ferdinand Marcos. The next of kin part was left blank hence it was impossible for them to have claimed the funds these past years or they have forgotten the existence of the funds entirely., in agreement with my senior executive officer we have agreed to expunge the blank portion of the next of kin and fill it up with the name of a would be partner who we can insert his or her name and start the process of transferring the funds out of the account to the new would be beneficiary. I also have secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any member of deceased Karl Henning family to become beneficiary of this fund. Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual business Endeavour by furnishing me with the following:
1.Beneficiary name and address
2.Identification documents
3.Direct Telephone and Private Email Address.

These requirements will enable me make some internal re-adjustments and file your name in all the forms and other vital documents as next of kin to the Pseudonym Name Karl Henning which before now was left blank when the account was opened many years ago. Upon your reply, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and advice you the detailed procedure to follow and achieve this once in a life time opportunity without any hitch. I must assure you that if you are serious and follow my lead religiously, these funds will be processed and released to you within 14-working-day period. If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you, I await your Immediate Reply.

Regards,
Thomas Mills
