1. Scammers use different computer software to make forged documents.
Most frequently scammers counterfeit ICPO/BCL by using the names of the most powerful companies and banks, changing telephone and fax number or e-mail address in the original documents to theirs, and also using unauthentic official’s signatures or stamps and letterheads (by the example of this document).
Document looks like it is authentic, but it does not refer to the organization who issued this document.
2. Scam payment scheme for joint stock company JSC “AK Transneft” allegedly for the oil transit.
This scheme was developed by Nigerians. It is simple - persuasion in the fact that they are Sellers and have a good connections with the President of Joint Stock Company “AK Transneft”. They issue fraudulent invoices for payment with pseudo bank details of JSC “AK Transneft”, which belongs to the scammers. They are using free mail servers like @mail.ru, @rambler.ru, etc with no reference to JSC “AK Transneft” and their mail servers.
DO NOT SEND MONEY TO THEM, YOU WILL NEVER OBTAIN CRUDE OIL, DIESEL FUEL, ETC, AND YOU WILL SIMPLY LOSE THAT MONEY!!!!
Scammer's contracts contain their own phones numbers as the Seller's phone numbers, their bank details and e-mails, one of the bank officers who is also working in their criminal scheme and never was a bank officer. All these companies are fictitious and predominantly work on the Alibaba.com site. They’re working through "Alpha Bank" or "Bank Russian Standard".
Moreover, they all speak Russian with a strong foreign (Nigerian) accent.
