Inheritance scam through fake sites

Unread postby firefly » Wed Mar 06, 2019 8:20 pm

Posted on behalf of the victim:

http: // www. 50s-consulting.com/contact.html
An email about inheritance came from the site above.
I responded to it
The lawyer of the site informed me of the bank.

www. sacib.co.za

I had my money in the bank and I had to make a bank account.
I needed $ 250 to make a bank account. $ 50 is the account cost and $ 200 is kept.
If this was a fraud, my identity would be stolen.

They say that they need documents and money to transfer the money in the account to xxx (victim's country).

They claim innocence
http: // www. fsa-authority.org.za/
Centurion Investment Bank is trying to convince me that it is real.
Certainly there is a bank in this site.
But I also doubt this site.
What do you think about these sites?


The answer is easy: 100% scam. Everything here is fake: the inheritance, the lawyer, the bank and even the so-called authority confirming both the lawyer and the bank being real.

After the initial payment of $250, the victim was asked for another payment - $2000.

Let's take a look on the fake sites used in this fraud...

Good Day

Welcome to 50s – Consulting (Pty) Limited
Thank you so much for contacting my office let me apologies for the late response, I was very busy with foreign investors from Germany. In case you don’t know the letter I am responding to, kindly see below my letter to see your response towards the contact we made to you few days ago.
Introduction:
My name is Mr. Ricardo George a Broker/Attorney of the representing the above stated firm here in South Africa and Holland (Europe). My office contacted you before regarding the release of the fund be-quested to you by my late client Dr. Mr. Simon L. Mamore of Ireland but you didn't responded so I ordered them to contact for the last time and I am glad you got the mail. He (my client) was a very giver, good and wealthy man; since after the death we have been busy contacting and release the entitlements to the beneficiaries.
You are to receive the sum of 2.5 million USD from one of his bank account in South Africa that I am yet to disclose the detail to you in my next email along with the WILL document, death certificate of my late client and the passport copy, since the bank will ask these documents from you in other to make sure that you are the rightful beneficiary to receive the money. According your email you assumed this is lie or scam let me reassure you that we are a legal company wit good reputation which we can never trade our good name for anything as such. So get your name out of that you are thinking and follow my instruction to get your fund transferred to you.
But before that I need you to confirm your details to make sure I am not releasing the documents to the wrong person. I therefore need you to provide me the below details:
Your full name (as it was written on your passport or any government issued documents)
Gender
Your age
Full physical address/Country (either home or work)
Mobile number
Telephone number (optional)
Fax number (optional)
Occupation/Position
Company name where you are working
Alternative email address (in case I fail to reach you on this very email address)
Upon the receipt of the above requested details I will come back to you with the documents and I will also phone you to discuss this claim with you on the phone, I believe that when I explain the process on the phone it will enable you to understand the process of transfer better. I advise that you keep this transaction top confidential knowing that if there any double claim the bank will cancel the transfer; to be in a safe side I advise you keep this to yourself until the fund is released to you.
Should you have any question/s do not hesitates to ask via email or call me on the below stated number. I therefore disclose my stuff identity to enable you know the person you are dealing with in this transaction.
Looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.
Until then have a great day!

Emails:

Attn: xxx

Thank you for contact Centurion Investment Bank Limited.
We called and confirmed from Mr. Ricardo George along with the copy of the documents sent to us, we therefore proceeding with the release of your funds.
The next step is to open an account, the reason we orders our client to open an account with us is because it helps us archive a successful/smooth transfer. As soon as the account is open/activated we do we release the fund there and provided them all the access code/PIN that will enable them login their account through our online banking program which was designed for people transferring huge amount of the money outside the country.
Since the new Government implemented a serious cross examination to every funds going in and out of the country by so doing demanding so many documents that cost lots of money to secure before the funds can be released to the final destination. But through an online banking their belief is that WE the Centurion Investment Bank has verified the funds before the transfer, that helps a lot because they don’t go into asking for further verification. Therefore using Wire Transfer will implement a long and expensive process that is why you need an online bank method of transfer, it is simple affordable and quicker to handle, since you can login your account through our online banking and transfer your funds without calling, emailing or travelling to the bank before that can be done. IT IS CALLED SELF-SERVICE BANKING…

To open an account with us:
Visit our official website www. sacib.co.za then you click on the Business Accounts Registration then fill up the application and submit to us. If you are not computer buoyant enough then click on this link http: // sacib.co.za/register.php to bring you to the Application form. Then fill up it up submit to us online by clicking the register bottom below the application form for the proceedings. Immediate you registers the application online you will receives an automatic email response from our central system which will notify/provides you with your account number/detail, although it cannot be active for the transaction. We advise you read the letter carefully to follow the instructions.
Within 24 hours of receiving your application one of the consultants will get back to you with the next step. Hope this email is clearly understood? You can call me on the below started number for clearer explanation.
Thank you for banking with us!

Attention Please!

Your application was received along with the copy of the passport sent to us. Again we received the letter asking us to deduct the few for account from the WILLED Fund, madam we don’t work like that. The funds was properly insured before the fund was accepted for the transfer.
I advise you asked your Attorney to send you the copy of the documents so you can witness what I am talking about. The insurance certificate said that no financial institution or bank has the right to deduct any amount from the funds therefore the amount must be transfer intact to you. For that reason we can not handle any deduction you must follow the instruction given to you earlier by providing the money to you lawyer to come this bank and handle the payment in your name
Fail to do that we will cancel your application and return the money to the family of the Late Mr. Simon Mamore.
The amount to pay is 250$ only, out of the total amount 50$ is admin few which is non refundable while the balance of 200$ remains in your account after the activation. The reason for the 200$ is to activate your account and give it the capacity to carry the 2.5 million USD WILLED to you. The 200$ will appeared in your account statement one it is activated and remains there for your personal use.
So while send the 250$ bear it on mind that only 50$ we are taking while the rest remains in your account. Hope this letter is clearly understood.
Since the rules and regulations of this bank said that every new applicant must pay the initial deposit over the bank’s counter or hire register broker or commercial attorney to do it for him/her and you are not in the country to do it yourself we advise you contact Barr Ricardo George Jr to do it for you.
You are mandated to pay the money before or/on 23rd Feb 2019 been Saturday.
Fail to do that we will close your application and never to re-open it.
Thank you for banking with Centurion Investment Bank Limited.

At this stage, the victim asked us about the fake bank and we confirmed for her that is a fake website.

Despite of her being told not to notify the fraudster about it, she decided to confront him. Reply received:

Good Day xxx

Welcome to 50s – Consulting (Pty) Limited!
I saw the link you sent to me and I accessed saw what it say for the reason I want to use this opportunity to educate you on something I see that is confusing you. Anyone’s name can be on that page as long as someone do believe you he may thing that you are a scam and lay a complain that you are a scam when you are not a scam.
If I am scamming you do you think I can still be here without a persecution. The fact that you saw the Centurion Investment Bank website in the link does not mean they are scam maybe someone don’t believe a business propose to them doesn't mean they are scam.
I phoned the bank now and asking why their bank is on the scam page and the Manager promise to do something about, he said that some months back a report came to the bank starting that some people are using the name of the bank to scam other people so that was the reason the name of the bank was placed there but the management is doing all they can to get it removed since the hoodlums using the bank name to scam innocent people have been arrested.
To clear your doubt/depression see the link where you will see the names of all the registered bank in South Africa. Click on the link http: // www. fsa-authority.org.za/services.html and view the name and logos of the registered bank any bank you see there do exist. As you can see the Centurion Investment Bank Limited is at the number 15 in that web page. WE ARE INNOCENT OF THE ACCUSATION YOU ARE LAYING ON US AT THE SAME TIME I DON’T BLAME YOU AS YOU ARE TRYING TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT.
I apologise for the conveniences this must have cost you but we are not scam I advise you to process. Having 2,5 million USD remitted in your account is a clear prove that we don’t do scam. Show me a scammer that can afford that amount my dear I advise you to calmed down and work with the bank so you will get your fund transfer to you.
I spoke to the Head of Remittance Department of the bank and he said that he will investigate the problem with your account/fund and get back to you in few minutes.
Therefore once you hears from him kindly let me know if there any way you need my help please do contact me and I will be glad to help.

Looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.
Until then have a great day.
Best Regards

The fake bank also contacted the victim.

Email:

Attention Please:

A huge complain came through to us this morning by your Lawyer Mr. Ricardo George Jr of 50s – Consulting stating that you are accusing us for fraud as well himself. He said we must clear this before it cost us our good name and that is why I am writing to you although I told him to explain this situation to your understanding.
Madam we are not in any form part of scam rather some people used our name to scam people in Japan which we managed to get it sorted as well as getting them arrested. Currently we are trying to get hold of the host for the scam link so we can get that removed.
To confirm that we are not fraud visit the www. fsa-authority.org.za the members page shows all the registered banks both private and commercial of this nation. If this bank is included then know that we are not fraud.
As the head of remittance department of this bank I have investigated your account based on the information received from you Attorney and the not you dropped to us at the inquire page of our website.
Like I said I check the system and see there is another clause. Investigating the new clause we are not the one who put is rather the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) staying “STOP ORDER PLACED ON YOUR ACC, CONTACT ADMIN!”

South African Reserve Bank (SARB) is a central bank of the nation with power to cross explaining any money going in and out of the country. They said the new clause is placed so you can verify the account once the verification is completed the clause will be removed by them while you make sure of your money.
They requested for the below documents for the verification:
• Irrevocable Certificate from SARB
• Clearance Certificate from the Ministry of Justices South Africa
• Clearance Certificate from the Ministry of Finance South Africa
You need to secure this document and submit to us; once I received these documents from you I will forward it to the SARB Office for them to remove their clause with 48 hours of verification. Hope this letter is clearly understand too since you are not in the country to do it yourself I advise you contact Barr Ricardo George to help you secure the documents in your name.
Thank you for banking with us.
