Thanks God ..and the Federal Reserve, I'm a rich man now !
Yes, thanks to (y)our rational spirit this seems impossible. However, during my career I met several people that really thought they touched the sky ! It happens mostly when people are facing hard times or are afraid about the future and are desperately looking for solutions regarding financial issues.
So thanks to those scammers, this is the occasion to share this warning !
The international authorities wish to warn us about this type of fraud and unfortunately a lot of people are answering to this kind of e-mails.
Febelfin (Belgian Bank Association) published in march 2021 statistics about this issue :
✔ 67.000 fraudulent transactions in our country for a total of 34 MM €
✔ Belgian banks blocked +/- 75 % of those transactions thanks to their anti-fraud
systems and procedures.
Furthermore, experts in cybercrime expect that in 2025 this type of fraud will represent 10.5 Billion USD worldwide. (source : Cybersecurity Ventures)
