Jon Forrest Nigeria’s banking revolution fraud

AUTHOR: Shamal - (USA)

My brother in law that lives in another state owed me money when he filed his taxes there was an option for him to route money to more than one account. He then routed my money to my account at compass bank. They accepted the deposit froze my account saying he needed to come into compass bank with his ID the problem is there is no compass bank in the state of Louisiana. Now my money is on hold and they won't release it. Saying they are closing it and mailing a check. I called to see when check will be mailed and they tell me to go back to a branch. This is really bad business because if there was a problem why accept the deposit in the first place.

Am I A Victim of Jon Forrest MyBankNow.com?

AUTHOR: AmosMichael - (USA)

Hi Jon Forrest
 
My name is Michael and I received the attached letter(s) on January 21, 2016, I answered and not surprising the N.C.S ("National Courier Servie") told me I have to pay $500,000.00 so I told them a piece of my mind but about 2-3 e-mails later I received a letter from someone claiming to be FBI saying I would be arrested if I spoke to Nigerian officials in a rude manner again. (Does it sound suspicious to you too?) Then this morning I received a message from not Jon Forrest (he said his part was done and it is between me and N.C.S.) but the N.C.S. saying that I could pay half now and once I receive the money pay the rest. This is what made me do my research because it sounds like it could be true now but again I want to be safe. Please review my attachments and tell me what you think. They are similar to the ones on your webpage but it seems he's gotten better over the years because I printed these documents and they look 100% real (to me). I have been contacted by DHL (courier service) saying that a very important package will be delivered me this week, if it is a 14.7 million dollar check should I deposit it and what will happen if I did. Thank You I think what you do is very very helpful without your site a lot of people would make this man RICH.
 
Sincerely,
 
Michael

 
P.S. If you feel my experience will be a benefit to others please feel free to post it!!

AUTHOR: Jon - ()

My name is Jon Forrest and I am the CEO of MyBankNow SA de CV SOFOM, a Financial Institution registered with the Government of Mexico and authorized to engage in multiple banking activities world wide.  I was just informed of this posting at Ripoff Report and wanted to address the author, and anyone reading the report, to provide the pertinent facts.  I have the following three statements to share with anyone reviewing this report:

1.Since the author chose not to provide the email address of the sender of this scam letter, we are not able to determine where the message originated.  Our technical team has verified that our email servers have not been breached nor is there any outbound email from any server we control that matches the email in this report.

2. My signature line never contains the information that the perpetrator of this scam has used in the alleged email from MyBankNow, ie: “Prof. Jon Forrest” or “Executive Governor” as that is not even a position in our company.

3. We are a Mexican company, in good standing, and we have had no dealings with anyone in Nigeria up to this time. All our phone and email records will show that there is no contact with this alleged individual, Charles C. Soludo.

Our team has the following questions for the author: If you really did receive this email and believed it to be from our company, why would you not just call us at the number clearly stated on the website you listed and find out if we really sent that?  Why go through all the effort to craft this elaborate Ripoff Report?  Everyone gets scam emails; it’s part of living in the modern world.  Why not just delete it and move on like the rest of us do when we get those?  If, however, you were attempting to harm us by posting a fabricated report, then shame on you.

Our team also has a question for Ripoff Report leadership:  Why does the accused business have to go to such great lengths to prove that a report is actually a case of defamation, but those who author such reports aren’t required to go through a similar effort to enable them to post libelous allegations? 

As a company, we now are faced with having to go to extraordinary effort and expense to remove this false report, according to your own VIP Arbitration Process as stated on your website, and copied here: “As explained in the Program Rules, the process begins when you provide Ripoff Report with three things: 1.) a signed copy of the Arbitration Agreement; 2.) a complete copy of your Arbitration Statement including any and all supporting evidence, such as documents or Witness Statements (subject to limitations which are discussed in detail in the Program Rules) you want the Arbitrator to review; and 3.) a check for the appropriate arbitration fee. Arbitrations start at $2,000.00 and go up depending on the amount of work involved. No arbitration matter will begin until we receive all of these things.”

Ripoff Report should consider a stronger moderation policy to prevent this type of report from being posted, until at least some basic due diligence and fact checking has been done, to ensure you are not fostering a breeding ground for contemptuous attacks and allegations that are not backed by evidence.

From founder to founder: Ed Magedson, you need to consider your approach to unfiltered accusations.  The Internet is a powerful tool, but without quality moderation and careful application of that power, a lot of damage can be done. I do NOT see that you are creating a level playing field.  Step up and make it harder for people to engage in nefarious, unsubstantiated attacks on the pristine reputations of hardworking entrepreneurs and businesses around the world.  Otherwise, you could end up discovering that your audience sees you as an extortionist operation.

If, however, you were attempting to harm us by posting a fabricated report, then shame on you.  You have posted libelous, defamatory information in an attempt to discredit our pristine reputation and my own personal credibility, built over years of delivering excellent results and operating with integrety in the service of hundreds of clients worldwide.  If you wanted to hurt our company, and me personally, you have succeeded.  I hope that makes you feel good.  Me?  I couldn't stand to look in the mirror if I were to engage in such tactics with people who frustrated me because we didn't have a mutually beneficial outcome.

We invite anyone who has questions about this report, and whom we suspect is behind it, to simply contact us and we’ll gladly present the facts.
