The fake site claims to be Banco De Valencia. The real Bank of Valencia was founded in 1900 and is no longer active. The bank was taken over by the Spanish government. Despite no longer being active since 2011, 7 years later the bank is being spoofed and used in online fraud. A simple check in Google would find the entire history of the former bank - Too bad the Registrar did not checked before allowing this domain name online to defraud victims. The Registrar also allows the fraudster to have his identity and location protected while impersonating a bank - the victims doesn't have that luxury...

The fake site is used in romance scams. Fake profiles impersonating wealthy business people or American Generals, are showing their victims their bank account on the fake bank as a proof they will repay the money they are asking their victims to send. The bank is fake, the accounts are fake as well - the only real thing is the money the victims will lose while believing the scammers lies.

From the fake site:

BANCO DE VALENCIA has offered Private Banking since 2007, and has a booking and advice centre in San Francisco and New York.

We've operated for over 150 years in some of the world's fastest-growing markets. We aim to lead the way in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Contact details:

Address: 51 Calle de Pedro Antonio de Alarcón Madrid, Community of Madrid

In other words, San Francisco and New York are in Madrid, Spain. "Since 2007" means "for over 150 years".

When it's about "since 2007", the fake site details show something else -

Updated Date: 2018-02-02
Creation Date: 2017-12-09
Registry Expiry Date: 2018-12-09
Registrar: Namecheap

Registry Registrant ID: C166643058-CNIC
Registrant Name: WhoisGuard Protected
Registrant Organization: WhoisGuard, Inc.

This is what the fake site looks like:

Help yourself by helping others - report your scammer here.
Google can be your best friend;use it if you have doubts about someone met online. If someone met online only asks for money, no matter what reason, it´s 100% scam.
