FAKE BANKERS - ADVANCE FEE SCAMMERS

Post by LordTicklefarts » Wed Mar 03, 2021 12:49 pm

Hello 419eaters,

Note sure where I should be posting this. Please feel free to move it and advise me. Last year, this scammer posing as a real life banker contacted me running an advanced fee scam. I played with them for weeks getting valuable info and reported their fake accounts. In the end, they called me out about sending them fake wire confirmations. I told them I knew it was a scam and cursed them out.

She seems to have forgotten our bitter ordeal. Her/his new introduction email is posted below:

I've had something similar happen to me, though. Originally, I'd played along with just such a scam (with scammers claiming to be the chairman and CEO of a bank, and after a quick Internet search I found that there was an actual bank by that name with an individual with that name listed as chairman and CEO, though of course multiple warnings came up from several sites, including ScamWarners, alerting people to the fact that there was an e-mail scam going on - since at least 2018 from what I can find - from individuals impersonating said individual and financial institution). I did waste the time of the scamers from my own e-mail for a while before telling them I knew they were scammers (and in my defense, I can only say that this was before I found this site and read about not using your own e-mail account or "educating" scammers).

Ironically, a few months later, I was contacted again by the same scammers at the same e-mail address, so (since I now knew better about how to handle such things) switched over to a fake account and started playing along, this time without alerting them to who I was, and have actually gotten a couple of bank accounts that have been reported in here. (It's still going on, though at the moment I've claimed to have had my bank send the money to the second bank account, and we're kind of at the point of them saying that the money hasn't arrived yet, and we're doing a bit of back-and-forth "The problem isn't on my end - are you sure the problem isn't on your end?" In a few days I'll probably ask for a different account number on the basis of "Well, the one you gave me doesn't seem to be working...")

(As a side note, I believe that this is one of those cases where there are actually several people working together behind the single overal "fake" version of the real chairman/CEO, since some of the e-mails I've gotten seem rather...well, not very well coordinated, if that makes sense. Besides not seeming to remember that I'd originally called them out, as an example, there was also a point not too long after I'd reported in the first bank account that I got several e-mails (and unprompted on my part to boot!) in rapid succession (and from both the original e-mail and another e-mail that I was in contact with where I would supposedly be talking to people who would help me set up the appropriate stuff) telling me to not use the original account and to use a different account instead.)
