The International Monetary Fund Scam.
The Hon Barrister Collins Scammer dropped me an email this morning. The email is poorly written with grammar although it does appear to be neat and tidy.
I have had a little trouble reading it and making sense of it as a whole. I get the just of it, the scammer is trying to pull the wool over my eyes claiming they have been tracking my transactions 24/7.
IMF International Relations Department Scam
After reading the International Relations Department scam email, i dont belive there is any facts in this email at all.
So i decided to search the P.O. Box address and it came back with several different scams. It appears this paticular scammer has been at it since 2015 at least.
Email Address Search Results
I then decided to search the email address to see what results i could find. The email address that it appears to be sent from is spoofed. The reply email is [email protected], the search results showed more scamming:
IMF International Relations Department – Full Email
Lets take a peek at the full email, as mentioned earlier it is poorly written email.
IMF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS DEPARTMENT <[email protected]> Wed 23/02/2022 19:58 INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUNDS( IMF AUTHORITY ) IMF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS DEPARTMENT CRIMINAL DETENTION AGENCY (CDA) (Public Affairs)( REF:012IMFA ) P.O.Box 3100, Benin GPO Suite 5B, Premier Towers,Pension Road, Cotonou Benin Republic, Good Day!!! Don't be so smart, Stop deceiving your-self, But I will still brief you that you are running out of time because there is no way you will get any funds from Africa since you refused to Register and to respond to our previous mails, Even if you like you pay money to every body in all Africa contents as a whole, There is no way you can get your funds or your consignment too, Because our 24/7 tracking surveillance is monitoring all your transaction and those you are working with all this while with those people you called your lawyer or representative in Benin and other country here in Africa, By the way what have they done for you just for you to trust them? What have you gained or get in return in all the transactions these lawyer's or representatives have verified for you? It is only a stupid fool will seek someone who is younger to be your own child to investigate a transaction on your behalf, what a shame? Why you never received any money from Africa internet compensation is that you did not register as a member to IMF AND CDA. Try it now and get you payment. Just (3) days ago we arrested 14 people who are under the age of 20-25yrs old, impersonating different office in Benin, due to the Benin lawyer they were sentence to 5yrs imprisonment for fraudulent activities in Benin, due to investigation, some of this arrested victim has a luxurious cars etc. So imagine your money used or spent for women and beer due to their confessions. These are some of the reasons most of you are asking to be a registered member to the IMF And CDA which give you 100% security of getting all your funds from Africa within a second. It is only those who are member to the U.N/U.N.A.O are advice not to make any further payment to us since they will get their individual documentation both from IMF and the U.N/U.N.A.O office but investigation will carry out to know if you are any register member to any of the organization mentioned to you. But If you are not a member, please kindly pay your IMF and CDA membership certificate and identification card which will cost you $65.00 USD SEND it today or fall to do so you lose your fund and Please kindly buy Google Play Card or steam wallet gift or ITUNES CARD or sephora gift card any Wal -Mart around you or Supermarket around you and forward the copy of the card. I wait to hear from you immediately to enable your transfer to take place immediately without any further delay or stress. Regards, HON,BARRISTER COLLINS WHITE (ESQ) IMF Resident Representative IMF International Relations (Dept) Public Affairs
This is 100% a scam, although the IMF may exist this scammer is not part of it. One major tell-tail sign is he is asking for gift cards for payment. Gift cards such as google play cards are ideal for scammers as they are very hard to trace and refund.
The gift cards are typically traded for bitcoin on various websites. If you have recieved this email or a similar email asking for gift cards please delete it and ignore it.
As this paticular scammer has requested payment upfront it is classed as the Advance Fee Scam.
