15th March 2018 - Advance Fee Fraud Scam

On 15th March 2018, telephone number +442033898296 was reported as being used by scammers to pretend to be Kelvin Choi using email address choi_kelvin@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.
Good day,

My name is Kelvin Choi, I worked as manager overseeing the distribution of imported materials to the late Mr. Akihiko
Saito, who suffered casualty and died during the Iraq crisis. I am writing this personal letter to request your business
cooperation.

This matter is in regards to Mr. Akihiko Saito, Japanese, who was a diplomat and a former member of the French Foreign
Legion who worked for Hart Security Ltd., and an oil contractor with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company [ADNOC]. He was
awarded a contract worth US$70 Million by ADNOC for the supply of oil drilling equipment. He did receive a mobilization of
55million USD as soon as the contract award was approved, he did execute the contract but when during the final stage he
ran into serious trouble with the militants. SEE EXTRACT:

He was subsequently killed on the 9th of May 2005. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akihiko_Saito
Scroll down to see his profile.

I worked for Mr. Akihiko Saito, as a manager overseeing the distribution of imported materials. I was very close to Mr.
Akihiko, as I assisted him in communication and others during the process of the contract award. I ensured that his balance
contract payment $15 Million Dollars was secured accordingly and deposited with Wells Fargo in the US and caixa bank in
spain

The wife of the late contractor is not in good health and she has given me approval for the process I am about to take. She
has guaranteed the process of securing offshore investment in their interest. She does not want the brother of the late
contractor to be aware of the deal as all her husbands’ assets are willed to her and her children. This is the primary
reason why we have to keep this business confidential. Mr. Hironobu Saito is a brother to Mr. Akihiko Saito but in the late
contractors “will”, there is no mention of the name of Mr. Hironobu Saito, rather all assets are willed to Wife of late
contractor and her little children.

As a business mogul, I want you to assist to secure the above sum ($15 Million Dollars) in your reliable bank account for
investment whereas the bulk sum (55million USD held in Parex bank) would be an issue of later discussion since it was
deposited with Parex Bank with a specified maturity Date. A letter of authority would be issued in your favor by the next
of kin that would authorize you to receive the Investment Capital.

You shall make immediate arrangement to hold a meeting with me to proceed with claiming the Investment Capital and
transferring it to your reliable account through the help of some financial experts in US. As soon as I receive a response
from you,Then we can proceed. Below is the family’s specification for your consideration: -

1] Investment capital is US$15m [fifteen million united state dollars)
2] Areas of interest are Real Estates, Industries, Fisheries, Transports and Hotels
3] Shares are subject to negotiations. Take note that this transaction is 100% legitimate and risk free. You shall be

compensated for assisting to secure the funds for investment purposes.

Please ensure that this matter is kept strictly confidential.
Thanks for honoring this invitation. Expecting your
mail
Regards,
Kelvin Choi
