I after i opened an account for my company at this bank and had around 300 000 USD in my account, I wanted to pay to my suppliers but the bank had closed the account and sent me a check that was never accepted by any offshore bank. I also had a debit prepaid card with them, that they never loaded. They asked to keep the minimum balance but there was nothing about minimum balance provided in the account agreement.

The Registrar of the bank seems to be a scam as well. We contacted lawyers from Comoros and Mwali International Service Authorities do not exist, we were informed.

The bank has proved to be a sister-bank of Credit Foncier Comoros or https://cfcomoros.com/

We have tried to open accounts in both banks and both of them would send the same bank instructions for transfers.

The scheme of payments is through corporate accounts around the globe - the bank say it's A CORRESPONDENT:

MASREQ in UAE

RAKBANK in UAE

AKTIF YATIRIM BANKASI in Turkey

NORTH INTERNATIONAL BANK in Antigua & Barbuda

JSC "BELAGROBPROMBANK" in Belarus

HOLVI PAYMENT SERVICES in Finland

NOVO BANCO SA in Portugal

 

According to the victims of scam of both "banks" Some payment providers that are most likely partners of this scam - St. George bank from Georgia, NIB bank and International Financial Service (IFSPAY). https://www.ifspay.ge/  - Poor guys probably have no idea they ever deal with scammers helping them with payments.

 

More information about the fake bank:

We also got connected to the people who lost their money with the same scheme - they lost about 1 million total.

Some people want to move illegal money through suspicious banks and risk losing them all.

Hi Martin and any other that have had problems with SBFP. 

Have you been able to resolve your issues since your report was uploaded? I know of some people with similar experiences and unfortunately have not gotten any response from SBFP. In fact, it seems the bank is completely ignoring these people.

Respond to this report!

Scamm Bank

Be aware of Société Bancaire et Fiduciaire Privée bank. Before confirming your relationship with them and go on and firm the contract with them to start the collaboration , you should be aware of their senior account manager Eva Cruz, the email that she uses is eva.cruz@sbfprivee.com, and their collagues which are Kate Ross, her email is kate.ross@sbfprivee.com, Vlada Melman , Selena Garan, Natali Romanova, Laura Meier. They will not give you the full instructions about what comports opening an account with them. Only after you have deposited all your money into one of the banks that they provide , they will freeze the money or say that you need to provide extra documentation to proceed with the transaction and not give you the permission to go on and withdraw you money even if you give everything they ask from you. They have a very bad communication with the customer and will not give any further explanation for the questions that will arise from their actions. What they will do is stop answering you even you find their contacts and of course will block your contact so they cannot receive your rightful complaints. The banks that they provide to their customers are: 

MASHREQ in UAE

NOOR ISLAMIC BANK in UAE

NOVO BANCO SA in Portugal

POSTOVA BANKA A.S in Slovakia

KBH ANDELSKASSE in Denmark

UAB MISTERTANGO in Lithuania


As a matter of fact SBFP Bank is not a bank in itself. It is just a Wallet that has accounts in the banks that I mentioned above , so the money goes from the customer directly to the bank and from these accounts they can do whatever they want with your money since the accounts are in their possess.
I have proof of what I have explained above, I have the conversations that I have had with them through skype or whatsapp or even email, screenshots and everything. 
If you want more information or proof contact me on my email: lori.maidfirst@gmail.com
