Grayfer, Gorbachev, Kolesnik, Paki and Moss.  Names to remember




These are the names of the people involved in an elaborate scam which is based in Spain.




The Offer: US$100 million available for investment, you simply pay 4% a year for 10 years and then give the money back. Oh and BTW you get a US$10 million commission for your trouble.




Simple contract and confidentiality agreement offered for signature, and then you have to travel  to Madrid to meet the people concerned.




What do they want: a fee of Euros 22,500 to be used as a payment to the Ministry of Hacienda (Finance) in Spain as a surety bond which is to cover the agreement by both parties and to secure the release of the funds from the ministry to be placed into your non residential account in Spain for onward movement to anywhere you choose.




A strictly hands off  transaction - just take the money and we will call you later on an annual basis  to collect the interest.




Ostensibly comes across as Capital flight and possibly money laundering, though the seeming involvement of the Ministry of Finance is misleading. (They have a fax with Ministry letterhead and chop)




Valeriy  Kolesnik, is based in London, with Paki and Moss in Madrid. Kolesnik is the mastermind  acting on behalf of Mr Valeriy Isaakovich Grayfer, who is by the way the head of Lukoil In Russia. It's his money they say, and they provide two documents guaranteeing that this money is not in violation of international money laundering laws globally. Anton Moss is the "Agent" in Madrid who handles the ministry clearance.




I and a friend went to Madrid to test this out, and advised them that we would open the bank account and then subject to our meetings with them would transfer the Euros 22,500 into this and then hand it over when we go to the ministry for clearance. They insisted we could not go to the ministry as this is highly confidential. OK fair enough but when we arrived  and the bank account was opened, no one showed up to see us. Phone calls and emails from them ostensibly in Switzerland, in the Ukraine etc, but no one showed their faces to us, they wanted to be sure we had the cash first.




The bank account was opened in a non descript local bank branch of La Caixa and it was in Euros of course not US$.  Don't worry they said we have friends in high places in the bank.




Still no one showed up so we simply went home. Cost us an airfare and two nights' accommodation, no big deal.




All along very plausible telephone conversations and explanation, consistent with  very little variation in their story  but always a heavy emphasis on "BRING THE CASH"




Clearly a scam and one to be avoided, let's get this all over the internet friends.
