Here is a Great Partnership Offer. Make a Killing! Fake Business Offer Scams
Fake Business Offers are part of the Nigerian 419 armory of scams. The basic 419 version requires the victim to provide his account detail for transfer of a bounty (usually in millions of dollars!) which the fraudster claims to have come into his control and needs to be moved out of his country, quickly. “Fake Business Offers” usually has a reverse cash flow! The cash will be (?) generated in the victim’s country itself and the scammer is supposed to be at the victim’s mercy, to get his share! Great storyline to trap the gullible?!
In other variations, scammers act as importers and place orders which are never paid for. Scammers could also offer to engage victim as their agent for selling their valuable products (non existent off course) and in the process get victim to send money to them as various fees.
So What is the Big Story?
The scammer introduces himself as someone in another country, employed at a company which is looking to import certain rare material from the victim’s country. The scammer is looking for a partner who would procure the material from the local market at low cost but will quote a high rate as indicated by the scammer. The scammer promises to get the quote accepted by his company and orders will start flowing! The victim has to be benevolent enough to share certain percentage of the killing that he makes, with the “poor scammer”
The Scammer sends out bulk spam mail with the above story and waits for responses. Once a victim responds, he is taken through a number of traps (import license fees, customs certificate fees, anthrax (!) certificate fees..... the list can be endless and the scam runs as long as the victim foolishly complies and pays). By the time the victim realizes that he has been taken for a ride, the scammer has made a neat bundle. The law enforcement can do little to recover the loot, since the payments are wired out of victim’s country, instantly.
According to Mr. Kumar, he received a mail from one “Dr Walter Smith” (Fake name, adopted by Nigerian scammer) for being a local partner, in importing something called Kposakuta Seeds from India. He became aware of the scam after he had already sent ~1000 dollars in 2 installments.
