|There is a gold scam. A man called Kevin Tyrrell whose mail signature is: Financial Adviser |
North Ghubra 78, Way 3215, Street No. 16, 133 Muscat Oman
T +968 24 66 7780 | Fax +968 24 66 77 88 | M +44 755 197 6959 will contact you proposing to buy many kilos of gold for million dollars value. He pretends to be from Oman, or Beirut, Lebanon or Milan, Italy. He wants you to meet him somewhere and bring kilos of gold along with you, and he will pay in cash. He says that they have millions of dollars in a Swiss bank in Lugano, Switerland and if you ask evidence, he sends a jpg file with a stack of banknotes, you can find on google images as many as you want of them. If you analyze his mail header you can see he is typing from places close to Milan, Italy and he says he's there for business, after you let him notice. To let you believe he sends pictures by mail showing some gold bars, but if you analyze the exif data of the pictures (pictures properties) you can see those are old pictures from 2005 downloaded from internet. If you ask him to provide references, he sends you a picture of a billionare called MrSafra, like if I send a bill gates picture to let you believe I deal with him. His favourite link to provide is this one: http://www.forbes.com/profile/joseph-safra
From his name they bought a domain and created a simple web page, but this website "safraenterprise.asia" doesn't look like a website of a company that deals with millions of dollars and kilos of gold. Indeed, you can look at whois directory: http://whois.domaintools.com/safraenterprise.asia you see this website has been created just on June, 2011 from a private person with no disclosed data. If you ask him to write a contract, he says he doesn't need, he just keep saying "come to see money". So he push to meet you in person, so probably you will not lose only your gold, but also your wallet, watch if not also life. His first mail usually is something like this:
"please release me offer to buy gold bar. many kilos. in case you don't have let me know proposal. We buy many kilos monthly business. Do you have for 2-3 m $ ?" If you ignore him, letting him notice all these problems that prove that it is a scam, he keep write mails once a week saying "sir, when do we start business? Don't waste time... let's begin business..." so he tries to push you in dealing with him letting you know that a lot of money could be easily earned and to think "BIG". Yes.... BIG scam I say. Finally, if you really "beg" him to stop writing you that you are not interested, he starts asking:
"let me in touch with other's more serious so you ll get commission" Sometimes he propose 20% commissions, other times 30%.... and because this is different from mail to mail, you can guess your commissions is 0% and you will only help him to find someone to make a fraud. Last but not least, if someone has for real millions of dollars to buy gold, I think that he already had a red carpet from anywhere, doesn't need to contact people in internet or to ask strangers to find other gold dealers. Just google for dealers yourself, I answered, if you really need to deal over internet.
