Thread of Shame

Mon Sep 10, 2018 8:37 pm

It happens from time to time that some of the fraudsters exposed on our forum decide to test us, pretending to be innocent of the frauds exposed here.

It also happens from time to time that the faker makers reported on our forum are contacting us, pretending they are innocent and they have nothing to do with the fake profiles or fake sites associated with their identity.

What they don't know while playing their little mind games is that we don't post anything on this forum without double checking first.

Online fraud has a long history, and the ones scamming innocent victims or facilitating this crime by creating the infrastructure used in fraud have a common point: they all leave traces online. They imagine there is no record left after a while. They believe that once an online profile/account gets removed, or a fraudulent site gets suspended or expires, there is no more evidence connecting them to the fake sites they created, maintained or were associated with. When no evidence is left, they assume they got away cleanly and pretend to be innocent. They deny the fact of the harm done.

Options are available online allowing somebody creating a fake profile or a fake site to protect his identity while registering it. A lot of fraudsters are using this option, while believing they have a complete privacy protection for their fraudulent activities.

More recently, the way the General Data Protection Rules (GDPR) was implemented on May 25, 2018 in the EU doesn't allow a regular Internet user to check the registrant details for a domain name. This is another shield for potential fraud if abused.

We said it before and we say it again: there is no privacy and no protection for online fraudsters.

Until law enforcement manages to solve jurisdictional issues and the regulators involved in how the Internet is working today find a way to mitigate online fraud, we will use any legal option we have for exposing the people involved in online fraud: their fake profiles, their real faces (when we manage to identify them), fraudsters as well as the ones knowingly facilitating the activity of fraudsters defrauding consumers every day.

Fraudsters do not care about the GDPR or the laws.

While being defrauded, victims lose not only money or self esteem, they lose their privacy as well. Their details, obtained by the fraudsters during scams, are part of sucker lists passed from one fraudster to another, and those victims get targeted again and again. The very same details end up on unprotected fake sites pretending to be banks, couriers or similar. Anyone can grab those details and re-use it to defraud those victims further.

The victims have no way to avoid online exposure because of these fraudsters taking advantage of them.

On our forum, we respect the privacy and protect the victims of cyber-crime, not fraudsters. The information posted here is for the benefit and protection of legitimate Internet users and law enforcement.

If you are a fraudster exposed on our forum and you contact us, playing innocent with a fabricated story, it is fair to let you know that you have no protection here and never will have. -

Dear Sir,

I am the PR to A webhosting hosting based in Africa.

We noticed you have listed our co-founders email ( as a scam email here:


Kindly note that this is our SOA record email and it shows up on all the domain hosted on that server.

We want to request that you please, remove that email from the forum, it is attracting too much spam and unsolicited mails and our founder is not happy with that. Moreover, it is a defamation of character.

I am sure also that the phishing site has been suspended.

Thank you for understanding.

Let's clarify:

The email address was reported first time in 2006, while being associated with two fake sites pretending to be banks; impersonating Allied And Bond Bank, and impersonating First Atlantic Merchant Bank Ghana. Since then, another 100 domain names were or are associated with the same faker maker details. Not all the sites associated with his identity are fake, some are built for real businesses in Nigeria, though the ones created, maintained and used for fraud are the majority. These are mostly impersonating banks, couriers and official institutions.

Following a scam attempt reported in ... =6&t=57318, we investigated the domain name used in that fraud. The result of that investigation is posted at viewtopic.php?f=17&t=68558.

"Defamation of character", according to the official definition, is "the communication of a false statement that, depending on the law of the country, harms the reputation of an individual". That applies to the situation when what we said is not true. We can prove what we said. If you choose to disagree please contact ABSA bank, who filled an UDRP to regain the control of a domain name created by you while impersonating them: ... -1363.html, and the EFCC, who can contact us for details if needed.

Back in 2018, a bank account used in a romance scam attempt was reported in viewtopic.php?f=11&t=66710.

The owner of that bank account contacted us today.

Email received:


I was making a random search of my name where I stumbled across a post with my banking details on your website, I have reported to the authorities in my country that I had my bank account compromised by some criminal elements and filed a complaint in this regards to the appropriate authorities, so please I request to have my information taken down from this post unless I will sue for character defamation in the next 3 days if my information is not pulled down from this post.

Below is the link to the post and I will be expecting your express response and action or you will be hearing from my lawyers. ... sa#p171294

We replied:

The bank account you mentioned was used in an online fraud. Please ask the authorities in your country to contact us and confirm that you filed a complaint about this case.

His answer was quick:

That is fine, you will be hearing from my lawyers.

Followed by:

Clearly it doesn’t occur to you that you are infringing On my fundamental human right to privacy and also putting me at risk, if I have my account compromised again I will have you placed as suspects because you are aiding such an unfortunate crime.

While waiting for it, let's clarify:

Kelvin Orobosa claims that his bank account was " compromised by some criminal elements".

He joined our forum from the IP address

Nevertheless, the email address used to register on our forum and also used to contact us is actively used online with stolen pictures of the same person he impersonated while being reported in the initial topic:

Our forum is not a place for small yahoo boys to play games. None of us here is someone you can fool as you want. If you are not happy with our reply, good. You can always contact EFCC, turn yourself in and ask them to contact us, thanking us for exposing yet another fraudster they missed.

Scammer Frank Chilemba writes an email to Big Al: The link to the topic starts here. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=44807#p195693

Hello Big Al, Thanks for accepting me as a member of ''Scam Survivors''. I was shocked to see my company's name and my personal information published on your website by one of your members by the name ''xxx'' who claimed that I am a scammer and my documents are fake.! I want to state this clearly that it is a big lie and I'm ready to challenge him and also take every Legal action against him for damaging my reputation.

I was contacted by DDP Gold and their Agents from Canada and the USA that there was a buyer who wanted to start with a trial of 20/kgs gold supply with a subsequent lift to be increased. DDP couldn't handle the deal in Togo because they do not have an export license to Export from Togo.

xxx asked that I prepare a contract and send it along with my legal documents which he would then later submit to xxx Bank in Dubai to carry out Due diligence on my company. The contract was prepared and all requested documents were sent. After a few days, xxx sent an email saying that his bank had completed their DD and also stating that my company is fake without seeing an official letter from his bank. We requested an official letter from the xxx bank to confirm if actually a DD was done by xxx BANK but he refused which led to a heated argument with the team and I think it's one of the reasons that led to him publishing my information on SCAM SURVIVORS.

All my documents are legit and I'm legally operating under the company's code of Ghana and a registered license holder of PMMC Ghana. Kokrans was legally registered in 2016. If my documents were fake, How did I open an account with Access Bank Ghana under this Kokrans Mining Company which is still active and operating? If my documents were fake, How did I get the PMMC license? If my documents were fake, how did I passed the police background check?.

a lot of companies and businesses in Africa and even in the middle east prefer using a cell phone as a contact point than landline phone because they want to keep in touch with their customers and also we are small scale miners. we are most of the times at mining sites than the office. (Scammer implied that because the victim's website was not working, that he was the scammer!)

I will stop here for now and I want you to please look into this matter.



Your account has since been deactivated, Frank

You have no claim of "damaging my reputation." The fact is you ARE a scammer, it has been proven in the topic above, and he is ready for your "legal action" should you try that avenue, as you know your claim of legitimacy is false.

Your documents ARE fake, Frank. They are obviously RSOT photoshopped garbage, and we have seen them many times before. Your pictures are fake, your passport is fake, too.

Your claim that DDP could not handle the deal because they had no export license, is just more bogus made up crap.

The victim had his bank do due diligence on you and found out that you and your company are fake.
We requested an official letter from the xxx bank to confirm if actually a DD was done by xxx BANK but he refused which led to a heated argument with the team and I think it's one of the reasons that led to him publishing my information on SCAM SURVIVORS.
Sorry, Frank. Scammers do not get official letters (that can be photoshopped and used against other victims.) And the victim did a real service to others by coming here to report you as a scammer.

Your documents fake. There is no "company code of Ghana," which is another scammer lie. You are not a registered holder of PMMC Ghana. Legally registered? No. How did you open an account? Accounts can be opened in any name.
How did you pass a police background check? Show me the police report....

You lose, Frank and are now a member of the Hall of Shame. You came here, trying to fool us.

By the way, your newest fake "company" and your LinkedIn profile have now been exposed as well. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=44807&start=20#p198007

I hope your lawyers are real and not like the ones you registered fraudulent websites online for.

Did I forgot something? Oh, yes, the apology.

I am sorry that you are a fraudster that has gone undetected for at least 4 years now. I am sorry that victims all over the world are left penniless because of your activity. I am also sorry that you don't get the justice you deserve, but I hope this will change soon. It is the time for all Yahoo boys face consequences for their actions. If exposing you and other fraudsters like you helps getting you into court, we are happy to oblige.
