This started about a year ago now.  Mr. Santos  will not verify of funds really exist. First it was $1,600.00 to release the funds. then witout warning it turned into 150K as he says his recalculations.

Last he has a financier that will put up the money for 3% on investment. Then he says his guy deposited $8,800.00 to my account. I never got it. Then Santos say I did get it. so I tell him to trace with his receipt and it can easily be found. They still say I haved it. they will not do the trace.

Some kind of scam, but I don't know what.  Lots more involved, Money really there or just a scam? Not sure where to go now. Help?

No Brainer

AUTHOR: RICK - (United States)

POSTED: Sunday, July 05, 2020

This one is a classic 'no brainer'. It is a scam and NOTHING else.  Do not take any more calls, do not answer any more emails, have NO contact whatsoever with this crook and above ALL ELSE do not give him a dime or you will end up losing all of your money. I totally guarantee you that.

Advanced Fee Fraud.

AUTHOR: Peter - (United States)

POSTED: Sunday, July 05, 2020

From the SEC

 Be on the Lookout for Advance Fee Fraud Sept. 22, 2016

The SEC’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy is issuing this Investor Alert to help educate investors about advance fee fraud.

Every year, the SEC receives thousands of complaints describing a scam called an “advance fee fraud.”  Advance fee fraud gets its name from the fact that an investor is asked to pay a fee up front – in advance of receiving any proceeds, money, stock, or warrants – in order for the deal to go through.  The bogus fee may be described as a deposit, underwriting fee, processing fee, administrative fee, commission, regulatory fee or tax, or even an incidental expense that fraudsters may guarantee to repay later.  Sometimes, advance fee frauds brazenly target investors who have already lost money in investment schemes.  Fraudsters also often direct investors to wire advance fees to escrow agents or lawyers to give investors comfort and to lend an air of legitimacy to their schemes.     

The variety of advance fee fraud schemes is limited only by the imagination of the fraudsters who offer them.  They may involve the sale of products or services, the offering of investments, lottery winnings, found money, or many other opportunities.  Frequently, fraudsters will offer common financial instruments such as bank guarantees, old government or corporate bonds, medium or long term notes, stand-by letters of credit, blocked funds programs, “fresh cut” or “seasoned” paper, and proofs of funds.  Clever con artists will offer to find financing arrangements for their clients who pay a “finder’s fee” in advance.  They require their clients to sign contracts in which they agree to pay the fee when they are introduced to the financing source.  Victims often learn that they are ineligible for financing only after they have paid the “finder” according to the contract.

...because you are willing to believe the most obvious scam I've ever seen posted at this site.  There is not $19 million- OBVIOUSLY.  Your $1600 is gone- OBVIOUSLY.  You paid the Stupid Tax.  Report it to the authorities, move on with your life, but above all, LEARN FROM THIS.  People have been taken for a lot more.
