Muhammad Adnan Al Atas appears to be involved in an international scam utilizing fraudulent Prime Bank Notes and fraudulent Letters of Credit and promising the duped investors huge returns of 100% or more in a short period of time, usually 30 to 90 days. Some of the investors understood that they were investing to become a member in an economic association. The memberships were offered for $500,000 or more. In some cases, groups of investors were pooled together to come up with the membership fee and were each promised 100 % return in a matter of weeks. The victims were often told the investment was so complex that they would have difficulty understanding and other terms such as Swift and KTT were used to indicate the sophistication of the investment opportunity. Several potential investors were invited to visit Al Atas in Labuan, Malaysia.
The Al Atas Group claims to be made up of banks, international trading in bullion, precious metals and stones, and stock brokerage houses with companies based in various countries including Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, UK, USA and Australia.
In the past two years The Al Atas Group and RSLE Holdings (Malaysia) made a failed attempt to purchase The Anod Bank of Mongolia and met with representatives of the Cook Islands to discuss the utilization of a note backed by the Cook Islands collective assets. Al Atas told the government representatives that the note would be traded on the stock exchange and promised a 10% return per week.
