This is a kind of odd scam. The guy wants me to open up a bank account with a fake bank that he’s made and then he demands a ridiculous amount of money in fees for opening the bank account. He gets 2-3 websites shut down and a bank account shut down and a lot of frustration and anger.

Now this guy is probably the angriest and most irritable scammer I have ever dealt with. And he was my first. This bait lasted a total of 2 months, but I’m 99% sure it’s done now.

Sit back and enjoy the story of a Hong Kong businessman who is trying to illegally pass 22.2 million dollars to the Swedish CEO of a pornography importation and exportation business, his torture by the Chinese, his messy divorce, the dealings with two fake banks, and the insanity that ensues.

Although this is not the first scambait I’ve even posted on here, it is actually the very first scambait I ever did. I started this scambait before I joined this website and I started responding to this guy after his e-mail got into my inbox (normally they go into my junk mail folder) and I noticed that the name in the inbox was Giuseppe D'Itria, but in the body of the e-mail, he refers to himself as Vincent Hong Non (a name which he continues to change multiple times).

Hello!

I am Vincent Hong Non, Executive Director of Hang Seng Bank,Hong Kong.
in our current performance of Annual Account Audit, I have a late client
funds of $44.5Million USD in my bank and i need you to front as
beneficiary, your share will be 50%;

Being in the helm of affairs, I have the power and expertise to have these
funds moved but there has to be a recipient, I therefore seek your consent
to collaborate with me by letting me document you as the relative to the
deceased client in position to receive the $44.5Million USD on our behalf.
Please if interested contact me for more details on
Email: [email protected]

Sincerely,
Mr.Vincent Hong.


Since he is sending this message to me via an Italian e-mail address that has his name as Giuseppe D'Itria in my inbox, I've decided to call him Mr. D'Itria-Hong and see if he notices.

Quote:
Dear Mr. D'Itria-Hong,

That is an interesting proposition you have, I must say. Never have I heard of such an easy way to make $22 and a half million US dollars. It took me over 30 years to make just $5 million dollars. I must ask you, however, how the Hong Kong government is going to allow you to get away with this. Surely... this can't be legal, right? Well, since I'm outside of your legal jurisdiction, I'm sure I'll be okay.

Get back to me soon.

Regards,

St3phen Anders

Hello St3phen Anders,

First and foremost I like to thank you for your response towards my proposal which I know will bring us mutual benefits, but there are some certain things we must do to achieve this...However let me give you a comprehensive note what this is about.


My proposal, I am prepared to place you as the next of kin in a? position to instruct HANG SENG BANK to release the deposit to you as? the closest surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am? prepared to share the money with you in half. That is: I will simply? nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to? you. We share in procentange 50/50. I would have gone ahead to ask? the funds be released to me, but that would have drawn a straight line? in my involvement in claiming the deposit.I assure you that I could? have the deposit released to you within a few days. I will simply? inform the bank of the final closing of the file relating to Haider? Hanoon I will then officially communicate with my Bank and instruct? them to release the deposit to you. With these: all is done. I am? aware of the consequences of this proposal.
?
I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should? discard this mail. If my offer is of no appeal to you,delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my proposal. You may not know this but people like? myself who have made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the? whole private banking sector. I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to? understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this? move. I ask that you? do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family man? and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities.
?
If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards? a conclusion. I wish to inform you that should you contact me via? official channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project. I? repeat, I do not want you contacting me through my official contacts, Contact me only through the numbers I will provide for you? therein in this? email. Further more be informed that the fact that you are a foreigner give? you the privilege to stand in as my deceased client beneficiary as my? deceased client had no relation all his family died with him during? the war and I can not use my relation because its not accepted here in? Hong Kong. Also I am very confident that we will be able to establish? the trust that is needed to complete this deal and all that I need? from the time been is your willingness and commitment so that we can? end this in the next one weeks.
?
?
I do not want any direct link between you and me. My official lines? are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our? level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management Policy. Please observe this instruction religiously, I will give you more light later once you agree to partner with me.
Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Haider Hanoon so that you will be able to receive his funds.Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 50% for me, 50% for you,
?

PROCEEDURE:
?
I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we shall come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary documentation that will back you up as the next of kin to Haider Hanoon ,What you need to understand about this transaction is that there is no risk involve as it will passes through all international banking laws and all documents related to this? transaction will be sent to you by post for your perusal and trust regards to this I will take care of all the espensive and the cost of retaining the service of the Attorney to give the transaction the proper documentation that is required to perfect the finishing.Your only obligation in this transaction will be to set up two offshore account that can accomodate these funds.
?

I choose to make this plans clear to you so that you know the level of your committment in this deal, Please, again,? note I am a family man, I have wife and children. I send you this mail? not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know? within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and? riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth? I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my? confidence.


If we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting soon, Should you be interested please send me YOUR FULL NAMES,PHONE NUMBER AND CURRENT RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS, your names and address will be use by my Attorney to prepare the needed documents that will back you up as the sole beneficiary of my deceased client funds while I shall contact you with your phone number for further discussions.
?
Further more I sending you my personal information below;
Name:Dr. Vincent LO Hong Sui
Address:39A Morrison Hill Road,Hong Kong.
Fax::+852-3010-9829
Phone:+852-8197-0356
Age: 56


In his first e-mail, he identified himself as Vincent Hong Non, but now he's Vincent Lo Hong Sui... Interesting...

Note that his IP address says that he is in Lagos, Nigeria. No surprise there.

Quote:
My dearest Mr. Hong,

You can put your fears to rest, for I do not have the slightest desire to alert the authorities to this "questionable" proposal. I was only concerned for your safety and the safety of your wife and children. You are too modest in only fearing for your career. I lived in China for a few years in the early 90s (my business has offices in Shanghai, Tokyo, Stockholm, and New York) and I know how the Chinese government treats wealthy men who "abuse" the law. Oh, believe me. I know. First hand, unfortunately. Lost all hearing in my right ear as a result.

Although I can't imagine how a lawyer could so easily convince the bank that a 39-year-old Swedish man is related to a wealthy Chinese industrialist (and I was not aware there was a war going on in southern China), I am admittedly not a lawyer (or a historian), so I guess I'll just leave that up to you and your cronies. You seem more than capable.

I will, of course, not contact you via official channels, but likewise I ask that you honor my wishes as well. I am married with three beautiful daughters: Helga, Frida, and Janne (named after my mother, grandmother, and aunt). I could not imagine what would happen to them were I to be found out.

You say there is no risk involved, sir, but I am not yet convinced. If this is so normal, I would fear the Chinese government would be more familiar with such crimes. Am I wrong to fear, Vincent? Please do not betray my confidence either.

My full name is: St3phen Mikael Anders.
My address is:
6A7B Sankt Eriksgatan, Kungsholmen, Stockholm, Sweden
Age: 39

Although there is a phone in my home, I don't use it because I have such poor hearing, due to torture I was subjected to around 17 years ago. My wife and daughters use the phone, but I would rather they didn't know about our little arrangement, so I must ask that you refrain from calling me (I probably wouldn't be able to hear you very well anyway).

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Regards,

St3phen Anders

Well, he was correct that it was around 1:30am in China when he e-mailed me the above e-mail, but he sent me the one below it at what was 3:45am in China. So... he went to sleep for 1 and a half to 2 hours and then decided to e-mail me?! No consistency in his story.

Dearest Vincent,

I thoroughly enjoyed reading your e-mail while having a cup of my favorite gourmet Belgian coffee (The aroma is unbelievable. I'll really have to send you a bag of it sometime). Your kind words brought sunshine and hopefulness to the start of this cold, rainy, and dreary Swedish morning (I hate Fridays).

This really is a great thing you're doing. Together we can help keep the memory of Mr. Haiden Hoonan alive. And, believe me. You can trust me just like us Swedes do (although I'm part Norwegian on my mother's side) and I want you to know that I feel comfortable working with you, Vincent. You seem like a real nice guy.

I already have five separate bank accounts as it is, so I don't really see the need not to use one of those accounts. One of them is my "secret account" that even my wife doesn't know about. You might be thinking "Hey! But don't you work in the porn industry? What could you hide from your wife?" And, Vincent, believe me. You do NOT want to know.

I think I understand the procedures quite well. Your confidence is well placed. I was voted "most reliable" and "most likely to succeed" in my senior year. This is an opportunity to take charge of your destiny. Take the bull by the horns and take charge. Who knows where you might be a year from now? With over 23 million dollars, you might be the next prime minister of China. No, don't laugh. I'm serious. Think about it.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

St3phen M. Anders

Hello Stevie,

How you doing today and how was your night? I got your email and i do understand your plight however i most inform you that the Attorney has conclude the documentation thats why i couldn't respond to your email on time as i have to drive over and make sure the documentation are accurate and intact to fit the propose for the claim however regards to your email i need you to know that we can not use your personal account as the recieving bank because of the nature of the transaction.

What we need to do is you set up a new account with a finance Bank in Europe where the funds will be transfer into from the finance bank you will then transfer to your personal account in your country this to avoid having problem with international monetry bodies and to avoid red flag.

I will immediately send you the details of the finance bank so that you make enquires of how/what it will cost to set up the account as soon as i recieve your id/ means of identification.

I do hope you understand my plight and awaits your urgent respond.

Vincent

Vincent,

It is so good to hear from you! I had a miserable day at work today and was looking for some good news. Other than waking up at 5am to a gloomy cold day with pouring rain, I slept fine.

It just so happens that I do have an account with a finance bank here in Europe. Perhaps you've heard of the local finance bank in Stockholm, Oförnuftige Omsesidigt? I don't recall what it's called outside of Sweden, but their security is top notch and they have never failed me yet. I've used them in the past for business dealing with transactions in China, Japan, and the US. You might wonder how I can be sure they can be trusted not to set off "red flags" as you so eloquently put it, but, well, since we've come this far, Vincent, I can tell you that some of my company's transactions haven't been exactly "legal." I don't believe we have done anything wrong, but well, as you must know from whatever information led you to contact me, my company deals in exporting Swedish and Norwegian pornography to East Asia and North America (primarily China, Japan, and Korea for Asia and the US and Canada for North America). Of course, each country has different laws regarding such things and we haven't always followed these laws. In fact... we usually haven't. But you can rest assured that Oförnuftige Omsesidigt is reliable.

I've also attached a copy of my passport. I just had it renewed last June.

St3phen Anders
Stockholm, Sweden


Attached: Passport.zip

I sent him a 500 kilobyte sized corrupted ZIP file called Passport.zip with a 1-megabyte JPEG picture file called passport.jpg inside. Vincent thinks that I sent him my real passport, but he doesn't want to sound like a fool, so he's not going to say anything about not being able to open it to me. After all, he's pretending to be a Hong Kong high-level banker. How would it sound if he couldn't even open a ZIP file?

Subject: ID Received

I just received your email and the Attachment Id i have forward to the Attorney to commence the claim by Monday i will inform you of the progress of the claim, thanks for your understanding and wishing you the best of the weekend.

Vincent

Vincent,

Haven't heard from you in the last few days. I was just wondering how the procedures have been progressing. Personally, I've been feeling a bit under the weather lately (I think I caught pneumonia). I hope you're doing okay over there.

Hello St3phen,

How you doing today and how was your night? have still not heard from my Attorney yet thats why i have not contacted you however let hope that before the weekend he gets to me because i have sent to him the id so that he can conclude the documentation and get back to me.

I will keep you posted on any update and also you will need to contact to the finance bank and set up the account where the funds will be transfer into before we conclude.

Thanks for your understanding and remain blessed.

Vincent


Quote:
Hello Vincent,

Are Hong Kong lawyers normally this slow? I lived in Shanghai almost twenty years ago and I was never made to wait this long for documents. Are you in contact with the lawyer? Has he given up on the case? Please keep me updated, Vincent. You are the only person I can count on now. I couldn't sleep at all, thinking about the money.

I just want to know what's going on.

St3phen Anders


Quote:
Hello Stevie,

How you doing today there is no problem its just the Attorney is insisting i pay him its full amount before he release the documentation to me, as i have promise to pay him the balance once the funds are pull out however am doing my best to raise the balance amount to conclude the payment thats why i have not contacted to you yet.

However i will need you to send me a copy of any of your recent utility Bill as i will need to attach with the documentation to effect the claim, as soon as i get that from you i will keep you posted on the progress of the claim.

You can as well send via fax no.:+852-3010-9829 i do hope you well understood my plight and expedite action in this regards.

Vincent


Quote:
Vincent,

Are you joking with me? You want me to send you personal information over FAX? Pardon my French, but that would be a goddamn death trap. Do you know how insecure FAXes are? I hope not, because if you do, then you are trying to sabotauge my livelihood. This is my pesonal information we're talking about here. If someone intercepted it, I'd be done for.

And why do you want a utility bill? You want to make sure I can pay my bills? You have my passport and I honestly had reservations about sending that to you, since it's illegal here in Sweden to give your passport information to someone else (and I assume it's illegal in China as well). But since this whole money exchange is illegal, I went against my better judgment and sent it to you. And now you're asking me to FAX personal information to you.

Vincent, I hope you well understand MY plight and expedite action in this regard. I can't believe a top-level Hong Kong banker could be such an amateur. This is millions of dollars we're talking about, Vincent. Don't screw us both over!

St3phen


Quote:
My Friend,

Don't misunderstand me because what i need you to understand is that i want to make sure this transaction pass through all international banking law and regulations so that we don't have problem with this funds once we finally succeed however am doing my best as i have made all my contacts.

Hence your utility bill is most important to conclude this transaction as the Attorney has informed me that the documentation is ready so we can commence this deal, you have to trust me now that we have gone this far and this my personal Fax no:+852-3010-9829.

Do contact me as soon as you send me the fax for confirmation, i do hope you understand this and put more effect to concluding this deal.

awaiting your respond.

Vincent


Quote:
Vincent,

If you think for one second that I am going to FAX personal info to you, then you are gravely mistaken. You tell me that you want me to understand that you want this to pass international banking laws, but what banking law in the world requires a utility bill? When you ALREADY have my passport and all my personal information? Don't make me laugh, Vince. I know for a fact that no banker would ask someone to FAX such potentially dangerous personal information, especially when they already have anything that could be used from it.

I cannot and will not risk everything I have to satisfy your amateur games. Either you can grow up and tell me what you REALLY need or you can keep acting like an incompetant second-rate banker.

I am seriously disappointed in you.

St3phen



Quote:
Your talk like a RAM and you never seem serious to me right from the beginning of this transaction please do not contact me again and thanks for your interest this far.

Bye.

I talk like a what? Like Random-Access Memory? I believe you owe me an apology for wasting my time.


I literally have no idea what he means by RAM. Lad speak?

Stop contacting me, since you are not interested in this deal i don't want to work with someone i can not talk with how then can i entrust you with such amount if you are not accessible.

Bye


Quote:
Vincent,

I want to apologize for going a little off the rails earlier. Maybe I overreacted. I was only thinking of our mutual benefit, but maybe I was a little overly concerned about my personal information being stolen (since FAX machines use phone lines, they can just as easily be intercepted as a regular call).

After our last e-mail yesterday, I started thinking about the money and decided that the benefits outweighed the risks. I called up my utility company and had them print out their English version of the utility bill which is used for any of the many foreigners living in our country who cannot speak or read Swedish.

I scanned it and attached it to this e-mail. I hope it meets your expectations.

St3phen


I attach a fake utility bill for a Swedish electric company in English with US dollars that my friend Chad made. If you don't look at it too closely, it's pretty convincing. If you DO look at it closely, it’s absolutely ridiculous.

Hello Stevie,

I too am very Sorry maybe i allow everything into my head so much, am very sorry as you are aware i was afraid of losing the funds into the wrong hands that's why i needed to be very careful in every step i take however immediately i received your email with the Attachment i called on the Attorney to commence the claim which he concluded promptly.

He sent the above e-mail twice with two different attachments. If he really thought I was gonna print that damn thing out, fill it out, sign it twice, and fax it to him, he had another thing coming. I instead copied a 1MB picture of one of my guitars, renamed it to releaseform.jpg, opened it in a Word file, and deleted about 5 pages of data.

I've attached the filled out form.

I reported the website to Yahoo Domains for abuse to get it shut down. Yahoo Domains contacted me saying they would look into it

Quote:
Hello Stevie,

How you doing today and how is your day? have you heard from the finance Bank yet? because the funds as being approved from release so i don't want us to delay the transfer, i advice you do your best and contact to the finance Bank soon and set up the account.

Once the account is set up do send me the details of the account set up, i am having plans to invest some of my part share in USA but i don't have any close someone over there because i want to invest in real estate and management.

However just keep me posted once you set up the account and have a nice day.

Vincent

Hi Vincent,

Yeah, it's probably going to take me about a week or two to get together the 1700 euros needed. Most of my money is tied up in my business and, with all of the finances looked over by a board of directors, I can't just take money out of it without approval. I do have several private accounts, but there is maybe a total of 2000 euros in those right now which would not leave me with enough money to get by. After my payday, I should have enough money to comfortably transfer into the account. If you're wondering why I'm having so much trouble with the money, I'll honestly tell you. I hadn't had a reason to tell you this yet, but I'm going through a pretty nasty divorce right now and my wife is fighting for custody of our daughters. This is part of the reason I need the money. I haven't found a way to tell the bank yet, but if you can wait just a little longer, I'll have the money. And, once I transfer it, I doubt it will be much longer until I have the millions we've been working toward.

Regards,
St3phen


This is, of course, to give time for Yahoo Domains to shut down the site

Quote:
I just ready your email now, its not really easy facing such condition at the stage in life when you can not turn back the hands of time, i wont want to intrude into your personal life but i know once it involves legal action is always very critical, i wish you the best and i pray she fine it in her heart to understand your plight.

With such on mind now i will advice i wait abit as you have said because i intent traveling as i received a call that my aging mother is very ill and needs medical attention, i will strongly advice you handle things with care and you can confide in me for assistance and please do let me know when you set up the account so i can return to conlcude this transaction i will also find time to check for your respond and keep you posted on any update.

Wishing you the best and have a nice weekend ahead.

Vincent


Quote:
Vincent,

Thank you for understanding. I'll be praying for your mother. And as soon as the necessary amount of money has been secured, I'll let you know.

St3phen


Quote:
Hello Stevie,

How you doing today and how was your weekend? i just got your email and thanks for the prayer due she is now responding to treatment, do keep me posted on any update.

How is the family and wishing you the best in this week.

Best regards,
Vincent


Quote:
Hello Vincent,

The girls are holding up. Obviously when parents divorce, the children take it the hardest. I think my wife is going to get custody, but I plan to fight her tooth and nail. I can't let her take my daughters away from me.

It's looking like I should probably have the money ready by sometime next week.

Regards,
St3phen


It seems about time that his site should have been shut down, so I send an e-mail to the Caja Espana address again to see if it gets delivered.

Quote:
Excuse me, sir.

It seems that your last e-mail to me was accidentally deleted somehow. Could you send it to me again?

Thanks.

St3phen Anders


I get a delivery failure notice letting me know that the website has been shut down

Quote:
Hello Stevie,

Got your email how was your day? its not really easy let your children go, i pray for you everyday and i need you to do your best also because your children are your happiness

Do keep me posted also once you set up the account and send me the details of the account set up, i will be traveling over to check on my aging mum over the weekend.

Have a nice day and remain blessed.

Vincent



Quote:
Vincent,

Thanks for the kind words. I'll be praying for your mother as well.

St3phen


A few days later he e-mails me again

Quote:
Hello Stevie,

How you doing today and how was the week? its weekend am wishing you the best of the weekend and see you on my return.

Have a blessed time and remain blessed.

Vincent



Quote:
Vincent,

Thanks for the e-mail and for the concern about the situation with my messy divorce. By the way, I actually think I should have all of the money by the middle of next week. I tried e-mailing Caja Espana to ask them to resend the e-mail they sent me, but all of my e-mails returned to me with "Could not deliver" error messages. I tried to go to the website, but there was nothing there. Either they changed their website without telling me or they closed down (again without telling me). Either way, I don't think this is a good sign and perhaps they aren't the best bank for us to be dealing with.

I have to go meet with my lawyer later today, so I guess I'll talk to you later.

Regards,
St3phen Anders

Hello Stevie,

How you doing today and how was your weekend? it bothers me that i can not calling to you on telephone because am always up and doing as you are aware the year is coming to an end and the rush is everywhere, i tried calling to you to inform you of the findings as the finance bank site when down before but we also inform that you can contact to them via email now.

Email: [email protected]

I advice you contact to them now again immediately and inform them of your readiness to set up the account soon and also you should know that the year ending rush is getting close we need to expedite action to conclude this transaction.

regards your email how was the outcome with your Lawyer hope all is working out fine? keep praying for your success and your family too.

Awaiting your respond and wishing you a Merry x-mas in Advance

Vincent


So... Vincent's caja-espana.org site got shut down, so he made a caja-espana.net website. I was planning to report it for abuse to get shut down, but I wanted the IP information first, so I e-mailed the address he gave me, but I got a delivery failure message, inferring that the e-mail address didn't exist.

Quote:
Vincent,

I noticed that they changed their domain from caja-espana.net without telling me. I sent an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided me ([email protected]), but it immediately returned a delivery failure error message, saying that it could not deliver the e-mail to [email protected], possibly because the address does not exist.

I am having serious doubts about this bank, Vincent. I collect the money and contact Caja-espana.org to get delivery failure messages. I even tried to go to their website, but there was nothing there. When I told you about it, you said they changed their domain to caja-espana.net, but when I sent e-mails to the new address you gave me, I got delivery failure messages from them too. Out of interest, I went to the caja-espana.org website and there was nothing there. Just an error message telling me that caja-espana.org does not exist.

What is going on? I do not believe this is the kind of people we should be dealing with. Next thing I know, I'm going to send them my money and their entire bank gets shut down and moved somewhere else before I know it.

I'm under a lot of stress from this divorce and I don't like being jerked around. I know you work for a different bank, so I can't expect you to know everything about the goings on in a bank in Spain and I can't blame you for all this crap, but I only thank the Lord that I did not send my money to such a place.

I have to go meet with my lawyer now.

St3phen Anders


I don't know if Vincent is joking with me, but he sent me the exact same e-mail again but with the heading “CONTACT THE FINANCE BANK NOW”

A short e-mail to get him to bother reading my e-mail

Quote:
Vincent...

Are you joking around? Did you even read the e-mail I sent you?


And now he goes to all caps and switches to full-on African scammer-mode and I think he may have realized I'm a baiter.

Quote:
HOW DO YOU MEAN STEVIE PLEASE EXPLAIN MUCH TO ME.

VINCENT


Can't lose character...

Quote:
So... you DID read my e-mail, but were too embarrassed about the caja-espana.org/net ordeal to answer me? This is clearly not the way to run a business.


He lets his scammer desires take over and he goes back to normal Vincent mode.

Quote:
Hello Stevie,

I got your email now and i do understand your
plight, now we don't have to delay this transfer i will suggest you
contact to another finance Bank in London now immediately and set up
the account, i think this bank in London there are very good and
reliable you should contact them now and set up the account immediately.

Below is the contact of the Bank in (London UK) and contacts details for you to make the enquiries:

set up the account soonest so we can conclude this transaction.

we have limited time now in this transaction, awaiting your respond now.

Vincent


I didn't want to write the exact same e-mail again, so I spiced it up and sent it to his new “London” bank. I wonder if he'll even notice what I've written.

Quote:
Dear sir,

My name is St3phen Anders and I got your bank contact information from a very close friend of mine. My purpose in mailing you is to find out how and what it will cost for me to set up an offshore account with your bank that can incur the value of about 44.5 Million USD from Hong Kong without settings off any red flags.

Since I have never had an experience like this before, I am seeking your guidance on how to set up an offshore bank account without raising any red flags with monetary bodies. In other words, I've heard that you can make sure that no matter what illegal actions I perform, no matter how twisted or loathsome you may think them to be, you will protect me and my money. I hope you understand my plight. Any information you can give me will be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
St3phen Anders


and then to Vincent to “let him know” I e-mailed his fake bank

Quote:
Vincent,

I've heard of the Rabo Bank. I've never personally dealt with them before, but I've heard that they are reliable and respected. I e-mailed them about the overseas bank account. I feel they will most likely be reliable unlike Caja Espana (I think the Brits are generally more reliable than the Spaniards).

Regards,
St3phen Anders


Quote:
Fine, please do keep me posted once you set up the account and also do keep me posted on any update.

Remain blessed.
Vincent


He contacts me shortly afterwards as the Rabo Bank.

Alright. So he's e-mailing from a yahoo-based account now. I guess he decided not to make another fake bank site because his last one got shut down.

I attached a 1MB sized junk file called passport.zip that contains a junk JPEG that cannot be extracted. You'll notice when you look at my e-mail contents that all special European characters become corrupted into gobblety-gook. I intentionally picked an e-mail address by a provider that could not handle European characters, just so it would automatically corrupt my e-mails when I sent them, possible making the scammer think that his computer was not capable of reading the fonts. Makes it easier for him not to look them up. Heh.

I went to the Western Union about an hour ago and sent the money. My scanner broke last night, so I scanned the payment slip at an internet cafe and I've attached it to this e-mail.

Please let me know as soon as the account is ready.

I attach the Vincent Western Union receipt slip and also have the MTCN v4ult send an e-mail to him telling him how to log in.

Hello Vincent,

I just woke up to find all these e-mails from you and the finance bank. I'm guessing that Western Union didn't e-mail the finance bank like they said they would. No matter. I have the data that they told me they would e-mail and I will send it to them.

Merry Christmas to you as well!

Mr. Woods,

Western didn't e-mail you? That is infuriating. They said they would e-mail you with the details necessary to get your MTCN. In fact, I just got done contacting them after I read your e-mail and they said they did e-mail you the details, but I'm guessing that there was a delivery problem or something. So I asked them to e-mail me the files and they did. I've attached them.

As stated on the Western Union receipt, you can get your MTCN from Western Union's official MTCN retrieval website:
www.mtcnv4ult.com

I have to admit that my experiences with Western Union haven't been exactly positive, but they do work quickly. I'll give them that.

Regards,
St3phen Anders


I attach the original expired MTCN and code list.

He tried to access MTCN v4ult several times, but I had set the expiration date at 6 hours, so he failed each time. Obviously frustrated, he sent the following e-mail to me twice from two separate mail accounts.

Prior to my previous email attempt was made to contacting to you via your telephone no. its observe that the MTCN can only be retrieve within 24hours and as we speak the retrieval has expires and as such the MTCN can not be collected, you are advice to immediately contact the Western Union agent now and inform them of the recent occurrence that the MTCN v4ult should be re-activated to enable our account officer retrieve and confirm your payment.


Its advice you do this now and inform me immediately for immediate Retrieval, Thanks for your understand and banking with us.

Mr. Woods,

I called up Western Union and had them generate the access code for you. They said they would e-mail it to you, but I think you said that they didn't send it to you last time, so I had them e-mail it to me as well, and I attached it to this e-mail just in case Western Union doesn't send it to you.

Regards,
St3phen Anders


I attached the new access code image and the code list for MTCN V4ult.

I get announcement after announcement from MTCN V4ult letting me know that he's trying to access the MTCN on the site. The record is as follows:

Alright. Will do. I'll let you know what they say.

Mr. Woods,

I called Western Union and they told me that their online information states that you were able to successfully retrieve your MTCN. Are you telling me that their information is incorrect? This is really confusing. Do you or do you not have the MTCN for the money I sent you by Western Union? You should have it.

Wait... I just realised something. You're a bank. You specialize in bank accounts and money transfers. Why did I have to send you money through a Western Union money transfer? This is causing way more trouble than it should be.

If you could just send me the bank account that your accounts department normally uses, I could have the money sent to them first thing Monday or Tuesday morning.

That's assuming that you don't have the MTCN like Western Union tells me you do. Could you let me know what's going on?

Hello Stevie,

Whats worry why you not responding to email am also worried if i dont hear from you, whats the condition of things with the finance bank have you set up the account yet?

Keep me posted.

Quote:
Vincent,

I said I'll let you know what they say, and they haven't responded to my e-mail yet. When they do, I'll update you.

While they definitely seem a lot more professional than that Spanish bank, they do business in a really odd way. I've never heard of a bank that wants to get paid through Western Union money transfers. I sent them the money anyway and Western Union confirms that whoever accessed the WU website got the MTCN, but the bank hasn't yet confirmed that with me. I'll let you know when they update me.

Quote:
Why haven't you heard of such banks, but you should know that banks do operates the western union too, or maybe the amount in question is a small amount to be paid via account

However i will advice you contact to the bank and ask because all banks has their policy of operation, do keep me posted on the progress of things.

Wishing you the best of the weekend and merry Xmas.

Vincent


Quote:
Vincent,

Why haven't I heard of such banks? Well, probably because Western Union is mainly used for sending money to people who do not access to a bank account (such as tourists), while banks generally use their own bank accounts because they don't have to pay any money to receive money and because they don't have to bother to go to a Western Union to pick up the cash.

That's probably why I haven't heard of such banks, and I have assume there aren't many of them, because it doesn't seem like a very efficient way of running a bank (I can say this from almost 20 years experience as a businessman in the pornography industry).

I have contacted the bank, but they still haven't gotten back to me yet. I'll assume they didn't get back to me because it was the weekend and they were probably closed.

Regards.

Sequel to my previous email communication to you last week its observe that our accounts department couldn't retrieve your payment from the MTCN v4ult as instructed in your email to this fact my superiors has advice you pay your activation deposit directly to the monetary authorities upon receive of your email, you should know that (RABO BANK OF LONDON) is a trading name of Rabo Bank PLC. Registered in Scotland, United Kingdom,? Rabo Bank, is one of the most efficient commercial bank in the United Kingdom.

it is important you know that the activation process is carried out by the monetary authorities here in the U.K which entails carrying out a due diligence process to ascertain that the account is fully functional in the U.K and that is why we request for a set-up fee/activation deposit which will be used as a security deposit with the monetary authorities,

Thanks for banking with us and sorry for the inconvenience this most have coursed you.

Vincent,

I am doing alright, I suppose. I have a bit of a cold, but other than that, I'm not doing too bad. I got an e-mail from the bank today. They instructed me to retrieve my money from Western Union and await instructions for a bank-to-bank transfer, so I will be going to Western Union on my lunch break later today.

Hello Stevie,

How you doing today? you got me worried you no longer respond to email as urgent before and you very well your telephone no. is not connecting however i got your email please do keep me posted on the progress and i advice you expedite action in that regards.

Awaiting any update and remain blessed.

Quote:
Vincent,

Perhaps you have forgotten, but I lost 90% of the hearing in my right ear as a result of the torture the Chinese government put me through when I lived in Shanghai in the early 90s (partially my fault I'll admit, but still!). You may have noticed that my phone number and FAX number are the same. I think I even mentioned that I use the phone number primarily for receiving FAXs since I have serious trouble communicating over the phone.

I also think it's strange that you think I don't respond to e-mail "as urgently as before." You assume that I have no other life than this transaction. If you remember, I am the head of a small pornography export/import company and I am in the midst of a messy divorce with my wife. It should be only natural that I might not be able to respond to e-mails 10 times a day.

I just wish you would think a little bit more about my situation.

Hello Stevie,

Sorry if i mis-understand your plight its just that am worried when i don't hear from you however i do understand your present condition an you are always in my prayers because i know its not easy facing a divorce at the expense of your Children.

i will always keep in trouch and please do keep me posted on the progress with the finance bank once the account is set up so that i can instruct the immediate transfer of the funds and i need us to conlcude this before the X-mas.

I do hope you understand my plight and wishing you the best of today.

Hello Vincent,

So glad to hear there are Chinese out there celebrating Christmas. When I lived in Shanghai, no one ever celebrated Christmas. It was just the New Year this and the New Year that. It's refreshing to hear how you feel about such an important season.

This Christmas won't be a very happy holiday for me I'm afraid. With this divorce going on, I can barely see my children and I fear I may lose them.

I'll let you know what the finance bank says.

Vincent sends me a blank e-mail with just my e-mail quoted.

Quote:
Vincent,

You sent me a blank e-mail. There was no message. Did you accidentally send the e-mail or was your message erased? I would scan your PC for viruses if I were you.

By the way, the bank sent me the bank-to-bank transfer information and I will be sending the money either today or tomorrow (I have a lot of meetings with several Swedish porn companies today, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it, but at the latest, tomorrow).

Thanks for your continues support and Remain blessed.

Quote:
Mr. Woods,

It's a carbon copy of the money transfer form (which the bank keeps. the original does not have that text on it). I assume that the bank does not want to be held responsible for anybody who changes what's written on the carbon copy after sending the actual money (for example, someone sends $50, but later changes the carbon copy to read $1550 or $15050).

At least, that's my guess. I obviously don't work at a bank like you do, so I'm not as familiar with these kinds of things.

Mr. Woods,

As I am sure you are aware, sometimes it can take longer than expected for an international bank transfer to arrive. The longest I have personally had to wait was an entire month, although I doubt you will have to wait anywhere near that long. I suggest that you simply patiently wait for the transfer to go through. I can't imagine it should take much longer. My bank is quite respected in Sweden.

1 and a half weeks later, I respond.

Quote:
Mr. Woods,

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner, but I was at my parents' house in Gothenberg over the last 2 and a half weeks for Christmas and New Years. They are quite old fashioned people with no internet access, so I had to leave my company's vice president in charge of the business while I was away (his family lives in Stockholm, so he didn't have to leave the area. I have to admit to being jealous sometimes).

In fact, I just got back to Stockholm a few hours ago. It's quite late and I've got work in the morning, so I'll have to cut this e-mail short. I'm guessing your bank has been on holiday as well, but have you been able to confirm the bank transfer yet? I'd assume it's gone through by now.

Please update me with the most recent details.

We have received your email and with disappointment i respond to your email as you are aware that the payment for the account activation was paid directly to the Authority, I was monk at the recent update that your transaction has still not come through and being queried of my competence.

Hence i advice you contact to your bank and find out what the problem with your transaction is? because its unusually for transfer to taken that long before it reflects into an account which gives me course to also worry and doubt your sincerity, Get back to me with positive words from your bank and do know that your account can not be set up till confirmation is received.

Hi Vincent,

My Christmas and New Year was quite pleasant. I spent the holidays with my parents in Gothenburg and had plenty of delicious home cooking.

As for the transaction, I just got an e-mail from the bank in London today saying that they still haven't received the money from the bank transfer yet, so I'm going to contact my bank later today and see what's going on. I'll let both you and the bank know what's going on.

I create an account for my Swedish bank and contact Mr. Woods through that.

Quote:
Rabo Bank of London,

My name is J0han Lindgren and I am manager of the Stockholm branch of Banken i Sverige. I was contacted today by one of our customers, a Mr. St3phen Anders, who had apparently sent money to your account last month. I explained to him that there several issues with his bank transfer and that, until they are resolved, the money will not go through. This process can take as long as 2-3 months depending on the circumstances surrounding the transfer, in this case, the circumstances fitting what specialists at our bank identify as advance fee fraud particularly of the kind originating from Western Africa. He assured me that the person he was dealing with was a businessman from Hong Kong, but we do have protocol to follow. The process could be expedited if the recipient of the bank transfer could fill out several forms we have on file in Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, English, Spanish, Italian, German, and French (if you are interested, I believe you would like the forms in English).

If you would like to wait, the investigation into the circumstances of the transfer and the recipient is ongoing. If not, please let us know if the recipient would be willing to fill out the proper forms.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to e-mail me at any time.

Regards,
J0han Lindgren
Manager

He does not respond to the bank, but responds directly to St3phen.

Sorry Mr.Stevie, we don't entertain third party transaction if you can not handle your transaction you can as well discontinue the account set up process as you are aware we have not received any funds from you yet.

You should resolve your differences with your bank and get your account set up.

Thanks for banking with Us.

Jerry Woods.


Quote:
Mr. Woods,

Yes, I am aware you have not received any funds yet. I spoke with the bank yesterday and they told me that they are currently performing an investigation because the information you gave me set off red flags and was very suspicious. I started thinking and used Google to find the contact information for the London branch of Rabobank yesterday. They told me that no one named Jerry Woods works there. And now you're telling me that you're a bank that doesn't deal with other banks, which obviously wouldn't be the case if you were a major bank.

You know? I'm beginning to think that maybe I shouldn't be sending you my money and I have a mind to cancel the transaction altogether. Give me one reason why I shouldn't.

St3phen


Quote:
Vincent,

I don't know where you get these banks, but first you give me details to a Spanish bank that shuts down their website and closes all their bank accounts and now I'm dealing with a man named James Woods from the London branch of Rabobank who says that his bank doesn't deal with other banks (the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard). I contacted the bank only to find out that no one with that name works there.

I'm beginning to wonder how smart of a banker you can actually be when you've led me to two disreputable banks, both with excessively high fees for opening a bank account.

I'm lucky to have my bank account with a bank that actually cares about its customers and checks out suspicious accounts. If not, I might be out of all that money by now. I'm seriously considering going to the bank today and telling them to stop the transaction. I can't think of a single reason not to.

Sir,

If you expect me to believe that you are British with that level of incredibly poor English, then you are insane. I do not even know what you are trying to say in that convoluted last sentence, but I do know you must have slacked off in school back in Africa, the Middle East, or wherever it was that you tried (and failed) to learn the language. Mr. Hong at least had an excuse for his abyssmally horrible level of English.

I'm going to have to remember your quaint and childish insults to joke about with my friends at a local pub. They certainly brought a smile to my face.

Thanks for showing your true colors.

St3phen Anders


And to Vincent...

Quote:
Vincent,

Since you're the central figure in this transaction, I just wanted to let you know that I've cancelled the bank transfer to Rabobank. When I let "Mr. Woods" know about this, he reverted into an almost-incomprehensible barrage of what sounded like Western African insults and slang in some of the worst English I have ever seen outside of Europe.

Your guidance has been, well... really misguided. And I have to say that you are incompetent and childish. In fact, your behavior has been quite unbecoming of a banker and is much more in line with one of those advance fee fraud scammers I've been hearing about on the news over the past few days.

I hope you realize the gravity of what you've done, little boy.

Sincerely,
St3phen Anders


No more contact from Vincent since then. I suppose he’s probably quite angry and irritated and has no desire at all to communicate with me anymore. How sad.

Thank you. Smile This is a character I don't use too much (unfortunately), but I always have fun playing this guy. In a romance scam using this character, I have him divorced and I've been dealing with the person for over a month but have never even managed to get to the payment stage because I always interrupt it with something horrible (such as my daughter being killed because someone left the lion cage unlocked at the zoo). You'll notice that the scammers continually refer to me as "Stevie" even though I've never told them that was okay and I always sign as "Stephen?" Laughing
