Red Flag #1: This individual contacted me via LinkedIn interested in an investing one of our companies.  That was the first red flag, so I did some research to flush out all of his information.   It is my hope that the search engines will crawl this as this individual has several hundred people on their linkedin account.  He will even go as far as call you and offer to fly you out to see him.

He sent me the following email with the important contact information.  This gives me a phone number to search the internet, a website and an email address.

Salem,

Thanks for your mail.Please send me your Skype coordinates to me business mail below.

Allah Blessing to you.

---------------------

Red Flag #2: Next, I took at look at the website.  The graphics are nice, but there are several spelling errors and no news on the front page.

Red Flag #3: Performing a basic 'whois' look up of the website www.alfaharinvestments.com shows that it is registered to.  The address of who it is registered to isn't valid.  However,

It is registered to http://www.gold-domain.com.  http://www.gold-domain.com shouldn't be trusted as they do not even do the due diligence to make sure the contact information of the owner of the domain is valid.

Red Flag #4: In addition, the domain was just registered on April 11, 2011.  That is less than 6 weeks before this individual contacted us.  That's a huge red flag that he hasn't been around for a while.

Creation date: 11 Apr 2011 16:33:00
Expiration date: 11 Apr 2012 11:33:00

Red Flag #5: Further into it leads me to this person 'Rambler Oleg'.  Performing another google search pulls up a bunch of Russian information.  What does that have to do with anything related to the United Emirates and an investor?

Red Flag #6: The address "old metric goldcage" was an interesting phrase even though there is no such street address.  This was the gold mine in terms of fraud and the nail the coffin of justification that this is fraud.  After performing a search, approximately 122 results were returned with reference to scam, bank fraud, 419, etc.  You name it, "old metric goldcage" is part of it including the email address emailserver6@yahoo.com.
