"Project or Business Investment" Scams

Would you share this Article with others?

Investment schemes involve getting you or your business to part with money on the promise of a questionable financial opportunity. A scammer claiming to be a stockbroker or portfolio manager calls you and offers financial or investments advice. They will claim what they are offering is low-risk and will provide you with quick and high returns, or encourage you to invest in overseas companies. The scammer's offer will sound legitimate and they may have resources to back up their claims. They will be persistent and may keep calling you back.

The scammer may claim that they are not approved by a real government regulator or affiliated with a genuine company.

The investments offered in these type of cold calls are usually share, mortgage, or real estate high-return schemes, options trading or foreign currency trading. The scammer is operating from overseas, and will not have an Australian Financial Services licence.

The scammer encourages you to buy shares in a company that they predict is about to increase in value. You may be contacted by email or the message will be posted in a forum. The message will seem like an inside tip and stress that you need to act quickly. The scammer is trying to boost the price of stock so they can sell shares they have already bought, and make a huge profit. The share value will then go down dramatically.

If you invest you will be left with large losses or shares that are virtually worthless.

Investment seminars are promoted by promising motivational speakers, investment experts, or self-made millionaires who will give you expert advice on investing. They are designed to convince you into following high risk investment strategies such as borrowing large sums of money to buy property, or investments that involve lending money on a no security basis or other risky terms.

Promoters make money by charging you an attendance fee, selling overpriced reports or books, and by selling investments and property without letting you get independent advice. The investments on offer are generally overvalued and you may end up having to pay fees and commissions that the promoters did not tell you about. High pressure sales tactics or false and misleading claims are often used to pressure you into investing, such as guaranteed rent or discounts for buying off the plan.

If you invest there is a high chance you will lose money.

Warning signs

You receive a call, or repeated calls, from someone offering unsolicited advice on investments. They may try to keep you on the phone for a long time, or try and transfer you to a more senior person. You are told that you need to act quickly and invest or you will miss out.

You receive an email from a stranger offering advice on the share price of a particular company. It may not be addressed to you personally, and may even give the impression it was sent to you by mistake.

An advertisement or seminar makes claims such as 'risk-free investment', 'be a millionaire in three years', or 'get-rich quick'.

You are invited to attend a free seminar, but there are high fees to attend any further sessions. The scammer, posing as the promoter, may offer you a loan to cover both the cost of your attendance at the additional seminars and investments.

You see an advertisement promising a quick and easy way to 'unlock' your superannuation early.

Protect yourself

Do not give your details to an unsolicited caller or reply to emails offering financial advice or investment opportunities - just hang up or delete the email.

Be suspicious of investment opportunities that promise a high return with little or no risk.

Check if a financial advisor is registered. Any business or person that offers or advises you about financial products must be registerd.

Do not let anyone pressure you into making decisions about your money or investments and never commit to any investment at a seminar - always get independent legal or financial advice.

Do not respond to emails from strangers offering predictions on shares, investment tips, or investment advice.

If you feel an offer to buy shares might be legitimate, always check the company's listing on the stock exchange for its current value and recent shares performance. Some offers to buy your shares may be well below market value.

Never commit to any investment at a seminar - always take time to consider the opportunity and seek independent financial advice.

    directory of Nigeria chamber of commerce and industry and decided to

    interest you.

    In 2010 we awarded a contract to one company in Germany which we we

    deliberately over-invoiced to ($17.5M) Seventeen million, five hundred

    thousand United States dollars, as our 10% commission.

    So now we want to transfer this amount to a foreign bank account as

    our own commission and we are looking for a very honest and trust

    worthy person who will receive the fund on our behalf because we are

    not allowed to operate foreign account as we are still in service. We

    agreed to concede to you 30% of the total amount to you for

    assistance, while 5% is mapped out to cover any or all incidental

    expenses in the course of transfer.

    It is important for you to note that the original contractors who

    executed the contract had already been fully paid, leaving the 10%

    that we want to transfer out now for ourselves. If this proposal

    interests you, as i presume it would, do not hesitate to contact me

    immediately, and DO MAKE SURE YOU FORWARD YOUR FOLLOWING INFORMATION:

    1. Your full names-

    2. Your address----

    This is to enable you have enough funds to pay for the Tax Clearance and bank charges before you will receive the balance of your funds. Please take note that you will pay US$100 only, being Notarization fee and this is the only financial obligation that you will undertake to receive the One Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only through the Western Union Money Transfer.

    Lastly,i will like you to reconfirm your information to me such as your full name, address and telephone number so that I will proceed with your Western Union Money Transfer within the next 24 hrs and the transaction information will be released to you.

    This is the proof of origin of US$15.5 Million coming to you. There

    from a French Company; Boughes International of France. Both the past Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (Mr. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi) and present Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele did not know that the over-invoiced contract amount US$31 Million was intentionally assigned or designated to a French Company; Boughes International of France.

    This Company, Boughes International of France has been duly paid half of the agreed contract amount US$15.5 Million. A contract of Laying Pipeline, Turbines Supply and Installation in Escravos and Forcados linking up Kaduna Refinery to Nasarawa State, which was awarded to Boughes International of France.

    I contacted you to change the ownership of remaining US$15.5 Million in the Treasury to your name as a real claimant or beneficiary. As Deputy Governor, I and my colleagues at Central Bank of Nigeria had knowledge of US$15.5 Million kept in the Treasury waiting for wire transfer into your account for our benefits. All the required documents related to Anti-drug, Money Laundering and Terrorism are in place and will move with the wire.

    As soon as you respond I will forward documents relating to origin of funds coming to you and copy of my ID.
