Business Venture Scam
| Angola Naional Petroleum Corporation (ANCP), Mario Alberto/Ngonog & (Hon.) Jose Ngonog want to invest/buy a businessJose is the so called father and he will contact you, his son, Mario, will actually come and see you (well you have to pick him up at a certain point) he will come and look at your business or property for sale and will accept the price you ask. The payment of the purchase price will be in cash (irrelevant of the amount of money you\'re asking!) BUT you have to pick up this money (in cash)at an airport or hotel. The money must be in cash (according to Mario) because they (Mario and his father) are very influential people in Angola and any money taken out of Angola by means of wire transfer, can be traced. The scam is almost believable to this point: they make the effort to come to you (in a sense) and make themselves known, the cash story is dicey to say the least, but you can sort of believe it when Mario explains it. The scam is clear when Mario insists on a nominal \"fee\" that must be paid to the customs officer at the airport who will \"look the other way\" when he scans the metal boxes containing the cash, BUT you have to pay this BEFORE you see the boxes and/or the contents thereof. I did not (obviously) proceed with this any further that the point where I showed him my business (I can kick myself that I wasted a day on that!!) \'cause this can either be that they scam you out of the \"fee\" (which is $4500) or that they actually want to smuggle in cash, in which case the poor sod that accepts the money can get into BIG trouble with the taxman. Luckily I was not scammed out of money, only time! |
