The Credit Suisse LTN Scam

A New LTN Scam has entered the industry where Fake Credit Suisse Documents are being used to try and con LTN owners.

An example of the scam is below.

This document was created on the 27th September 2017 and signed on that date by James Brandon Henrichs, Chief Executive Officer of Credit Suisse.

The only problem is:

So it is impossible for James Brandon Henrichs to have signed the below document for Credit Suisse on the 29th September 2017 because he hasn't worked for Credit Suisse for 3 years! Beware of this LTN Scam!

Secure Platform Funding does what no other Provider in the Industry does! We WARN and EDUCATE customers on scams so they can avoid them. The scammers hate that we do this but our commitment is to clean up the industry, settle authentic real deals with clients and operate to higher standards than anyone else does in the industry.

Thats why Secure Platform Funding is the Worlds #1 Financial Instruments Website.

Hawkins Funding Limited – Scammer WARNING!

It seems Common Sense is NOT that Common! Despite Hawkins Funding.....

  1. Having no website!
  2. Registering their email address 5 months ago on the 20th March 2017 just to scam people
  3. Having no professional LinkedIn profile
  4. Getting clients to Pay all their Deposits to a Malaysian Bank when they are issuing BG & SBLC from Barclays London
  5. Offering a BG and SBLC issuing price of 3%+1% that is so cheap no bank in the world could supply a real instrument at that price.
  6. Deliberately Hiding who is the registered owner of hawkinsfunding.uk.com
  7. Lying about their office address
  8. Lying about their contract signatory
  9. Fraudulently using Matt Tucks signature at Barclays Bank without his knowledge or approval
  10. Fraudulently creating a fake passport for Christopher Le Neve Foster
  11. Fraudulently using Allen Labor as Notary when the UK Notary Registrar confirmed Allen Labor died on the 18 October 2011
  12. Refusing any Requests to meet in their Offices
  13. Refusing any Requests to provide a Proof of Life Photo
  14. Check Business UK giving their Business a D Rating
  15. Secure Platform Funding issuing 2 Scam Warnings for Long Island Assets & Menlo Investments at the exact same address as Hawkins Funding
  16. Being listed on the Secure Platform Funding Banned Providers List for months

Incredibly.... Despite all of these OBVIOUS Warning signs, in the last 4 weeks we have been contacted by at least 1 Hawkins Funding client EVERY WEEK that has LOST ALL THE MONEY they paid Hawkins Funding and been Totally Scammed!

Greed blinds common sense! The Scammers Number 1 Tool is to sucker the price shoppers, cheapskates and tightwads who want a "bargain" BG or SBLC price and lure you into the scammers trap. The scammer is more than happy to offer you a Barclays BG or SBLC at 3%+1% because the scammer knows he isn't providing ANYTHING! The false sense of security that is created when a client (victim) mistakenly thinks he has a bargain price soon turns to reality when he realizes he just paid for a very expensive lesson on how greed destroys common sense.

The Number 2 Tool in the Scammers Toolbox is to agree to everything you want in the Bank Guarantee / Standby Letter of Credit Issuing Agreement. The scammer will happily let you feel like you are winning and that you can have the exact  Mt760 and Mt799 verbiage you want, the terms you want and the penalty clauses you want. The scammer gives you all you want to make you feel safe, secure, comfortable and in control! When the truth is you aren't in control, the scammer is in control and like the snake in the Garden of Eden he is tempting you and telling you everything you want to hear so you can pay him and then he will vanish with all your money.

The Facts About the Hawkins Funding Scam!

Hawkins Funding is a real company, and it is really is owned by Barclays. The problem is scammers have hijacked the company! What i mean by that is.... Scammers have obtained Hawkins Company records and are using them to create a cover of authenticity, they added to that registering a hawkinsfunding.uk.com email address which is solely used by the scammers and you have the perfect charade!

These same scammers have done this twice before with two other Barclays companies at he same registered address as Hawkins Funding, read all the details on Menlo Investments & Long Island Assets.

Interestingly on the 16th of January 2017 we publicly exposed the Long Island Assets scam and within 8 weeks of our exposé and public warning the scammers registered hawkinsfundings email domain and switched to it, immediately starting to use Hawkins Funding as their primary scam vehicle.

You can confirm that Hawkins Funding is a Scam very easily. Here are a few suggestions:

  1. Walk into Hawkins Fundings offices at 1 Churchill Place in London and show them the documents you received from hawkinsfunding.uk.com email address. The real Hawkins Funding office will immediately confirm those documents were never issued by them and that their business has nothing to do with issuing any kind of financial instruments.
  2. Email your DOA to the Barclays Fraud Department and ask then to confirm Hawkins Fundings Barclays account number. They will confirm its fraud.
  3. Email or phone the scammers contact details and ask him to meet you at the Hawkins Funding Offices at 1 Churchill Place in London. The scammer will never turn up!

BEWARE: The Scammers use these Fake Hawkins Funding Details

The Evidence about Hawkins Funding

Below is Hawkins Fundings LinkedIn Profile, its a joke! No real company that has been operating since 2002 as a Barclays subsidiary has 28 followers! This is a quick cheap profile established by the scammers just a few months ago to sucker in customers.

Hawkins Funding - Linkedin
Hawkins Funding - Staff

Robert Blackburn Stewart is Hawkins Fundings Finance Manager. This profile has the following errors:

  1. Robert is based in Liverpool but Hawkins Fundng is based in London!
  2. Robert doesn't use HawkinsFundings email, he uses a gmail and outlook account
  3. Robert is a Finance Manager for a Barclays subsidiary and he cant take a even slightly professional or clear photo of himself! The glass bullet hole on his photo is particularly amusing.
  4. Robert seems to have failed at school because he doesn't know to put Capitals in the start of his name or a space between Robert and Blackburn. Barclays would never allow this level of unprofessionalism.
  5. Robert  doesn't know how to put Capital Letters on the "hawkins funding ltd" company name either.
  6. Robert seems to have no employment history, no credentials, that is because Robert isn't real at all!
  7. Robert is a bit lonely, he only has 167 friends on linked in..... that's because he is a scammer that only recently loaded this profile!
Robert Blackburn Stewart

Ask yourself..... All the records about Hawkins Funding are public records, so why would someone go to all the trouble they have below of hiding who registered the internet domain name hawkingsfunding.uk.com on the 20th of March 2017. Answer: Because a Scammer registered it to use it!

Hawkins Funding - Whois

Check Business UK Rate Hawkins a D! Read there report below..... And don't you think a company issuing BG & SBLC for Barclays Bank would be making more than a 2.5 Million Pound LOSS!

Hawkins Fundings Refund Undertaking

Irrevocable Corporate Refund Undertaking (Bank Endorsed ICRU) (1)_001

Hawkins Funding using DEAD Notary Allen Labor who Died on the 11th October 2011

Notary Fraud Confirmation

Hawkins Fundings DOA (Deed of Agreement)

Hawkins Funding - DOA 1

The real Christopher Patrick Le Neve Foster works for the real Hawkins Funding and if you meet him he will confirm to you that he has never seen your DOA, nor has he signed your DOA.

Hawkins Funding - DOA 2

3%+1% is the most foolish, insane, impossible price that no "real" provider in the financial services industry can even deliver an instrument for. This just shows you how desperate the scammers are to lure you in with promises of a nice cheap deal.

Hawkins Funding - DOA 3

Hawkins Funding was incorporated in 2002, so why are they using a 2017 company stamp? Basic Scammer mistake that gives them away immediately!

Hawkins Funding - DOA 4

Why are Barclay London issuing the BG or SBLC but clients are being told to pay "Jatobas Venture" in Malaysia. 1+1 does not equal 57 my friends! Oh and guess what...... the Scammers from Menlo and Long island used exactly the same strategy and requested you pay exactly the same Malaysian Bank!

Hawkins Funding - DOA 5

Last but not least Christopher Patrick has had his passport stolen and used on hundreds of scammer documents to try and fool innocent clients that a real reputable person was signing the scammers BG and SBLC agreement. Christopher Patrick doesn't know anything about the BG or SBLC DOA you received from Hawkins Funding. Christopher is just as much a victim of this scam as you are!

Final Thoughts.....

Secure Platform Funding is a reputable company that was formed in 2008 and operates the Worlds Number 1 Financial Instruments website. We are constantly amazed at how foolish and gullible people will be when scammer offers them a cheap deal that is too good to be true!

Instead of people searching for a safe, secure, quality (even if it costs a little more) company that protects your money and can consistently delivers a real result, people chase fairytales, fakes and bullshitters.

Wise clients will return to conservative values and realize making good money with a quality company like Secure Platform Funding is better than losing all your money to a mirage sold to you by a scammer.

Be careful, choose your friends and business partners wisely. Work with Secure Platform Funding and avoid the Scammers.

Bank Draft Bombshell

Up to 95% of Bank Drafts are Fraud!

About 3 times a day Secure Platform Funding receives an email from someone asking if we will monetize a Bank Draft. We learnt about Bank Drafts the hard way.... We spent a year accepting Bank Drafts for monetization from anyone who had one, in that time we received copious amounts of Bank Draft deals!

What we discovered was..... In 1 full year of accepting any Bank Draft offered to us for monetization we discovered ALL of them were Fraudulent!

Secure Platform Funding Bank Draft

Yes unbelievably not one single Bank Draft we accepted in 1 FULL YEAR was REAL! It was like someone was playing a bad joke on us, every deal we looked at was fake and fraud. Every deal! We fast discovered that Bank Drafts are the fraudsters weapon of choice and the internet is littered with Victims of Bank Draft Fraud. What is worse is with modern technology Bank Drafts are so easy for fraudsters to create, print and sell its like take candy from a baby! Really a Bank Draft is nothing more than a nice piece of paper with some colored ink on it. Pretty simple for anyone to fake using any home computer with a good quality printer.

Secure Platform Funding Bank Draft

Bank Draft Fraud is a Booming Business!

Sadly Bank Draft Fraud is a booming business that seems to target innocent new investors who have recently joined or become interested in the financial instruments industry. People get suckered into buying a Bank Draft and by the time they realize they paid a fortune for a worthless fraudulent piece of paper the fraudster is long gone and is sunning himself on a Nigerian Beach drinking Pina Coladas you paid for!

As The Worlds #1 Financial Instruments Website business, Bank Drafts were a disaster for us! We spend hundreds of hours scouring through a million different client Bank Draft deals to discover all were fake. As a result under no circumstances will Secure Platform Funding accept, deal with or touch a single Bank Draft. Its just not worth our time to deal with Bank Drafts when almost none are real!

Banks are well aware of the massive fraud with Bank Drafts and as a result they are issuing less and less of them and preferring customers issue Bank Guarantees (BG) and Standby Letters of Credit (SBLC) instead of Bank Drafts because Bank Guarantees (BG) and Standby Letters of Credit (SBLC) are electronically delivered by the Swift.com or Euroclear transaction networks with a Bank to Bank authentication and validation process which naturally gives higher levels of fraud protection.

Bank Draft Advice

Here is my advice.... If you think you have a Real Bank Draft, take it to your bank and Deposit it in your Account! Then one of two things will happen either:

a) You will become an Instant Millionaire, or

b) You will be Arrested for Fraud and go to Jail!

The fact that a client even seeks monetization on a Bank Draft is a WARNING sign in itself because if the instrument was real why do you want to put it in OUR bank when you don't want to put it in YOUR bank!

Lastly, are some Bank Drafts real.... Yes. But some think the Lockness Monster is real too and it has taken a lot of time and a lot of effort to look for the Lockness Monster and thus far all researchers still haven't found her! In our business time is money, and Bank Drafts represent a terrible waste of time and resource that we prefer to direct to other more profitable business like our Managed BG Program.

If you are a broker and your accepting Bank Drafts your insane! Every day you are handling fraudulent documents and one day someone in a uniform is going to come knocking on your door and ask you why you helped facilitate fraud and contributed to a client losing tons of money. You better have a very good explanation!

Risk Verses Reward

The Finance Industry is all about Risk and Reward! For Secure Platform Funding the Risk with Bank Drafts significantly outweighs the Rewards! For customers seeking Bank Drafts the Risk definitely out weights the rewards. Be smart, be safe, stay away from Bank Drafts and life a happier life because of it.

Long Island Assets Limited Scam Exposed

Long Island Assets Limited - Scam Exposed!

On the 2nd December 2016 Secure Platform Funding Exposed and Broadcast full details of Scammers who had Hijacked Menlo Investments Limited in the UK. Our hope was that exposing full details of this scam would save numerous more customers from getting ripped off and their money stolen. It seems our article on Menlo Investments had the desired effect and stopped the scammers in their tracks!

Unfortunately on the 7th December 2016 the scammers moved their operation from Menlo Investments which Secure Platform Funding exposed to a new company Long Island Assets Limited in the UK.

The Menlo Investment Scam and the Long Island Asset Scam are identical. The scammers just changed a few subtle details but are using the exact same modus operandi. So here are a few highlights for the Long Island Assets Limited scam:

  1. We exposed Menlo Investment on the 2nd December 2016, 5 days later the internet domain name longislandassets.co.uk was registered to the same address, using the same domain registry company and the same name servers! (See below)
Domain Name
Domain Name1

2. The physical address for Long Island Assets Limited is the same as Menlo Investments Limited on all documentation.

3. The Long Island Assets Limited Invoice asking clients to pay fees for the issuance of a Bank Guarantee or Standby Letter of Credit directs payments to the exact same Malaysian Bank, using the exact same Swift codes as Menlo Investments did!

4.  The Invoice for payment of fees does not ask you to pay Long Island Assets Limited, it gets you to pay a completely different company in Malaysia, just like Menlo Investments did!

5.  The Long Island Assets Limited Refund Undertaking Document is identical to Menlo Investments, in the exact same format, all they did was change the Notary and the Bank Officer names and change the name of the bank account your funds get paid to. See the examples below...

Long Island Assets Refund Undertaking Signatures & Bank Account

Signatures

Menlo Investments Refund Undertakings Signatures & Bank Account

Signatures1

6.  Companieshouse.gov.uk confirms the Company Capital for Long Island Assets Limited is only 5 Million Pounds. So they cant issue a BG or SBLC greater than 5M because that is all the capital they have!

7.  Allen Labor is listed as the Notary who signed and witnessed the Long Island Assets Limited Refund Undertaking (see above) on the 29th December 2016. But on the 29th December Allen Labor was no longer listed as a licensed Notary in the UK because as the Notaries Clerk to the Registrar confirms below.... Allen Labor died on the 18th October 2011. So with 100% certainty the documents provided by Long Island Assets Limited are fraudulent!

Notary Fraud Confirmation

8.  Ask yourself one simple question.... Why is a company Long Island Assets Limited located in the Barclays Bank building, listed an associated subsidiary company to Barclays, issuing instruments from HSBC and getting you to pay your fees to CIMB Bank in Malaysia! Answer: Because its fraud!

The bottom line is Long Island Assets Limited is a legitimate UK company that like Menlo investments has had its identity hijacked by scammers so they can rip off of a stream from innocent customers. Long Island Assets Limited does not have the financial capacity to issue financial instruments and the documents being produced by the scammers using this companies identity are confirmed as false and fraudulent. If you know any one who is intending to buy Bank Guarantees (BG), Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) or any other financial instruments from Long Island Assets Limited, tell them to avoid them like at all costs!

Bass Mint Management Group & Carl Edward Osias – BG & SBLC Fraud Confirmed!

Secure Platform Funding has been working closely with several parties who approached Secure Platform Funding asking for help to verify if financial instruments issued by Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group operating out of Canada were real or fraudulent.

On the 14th December 2016 we were able to confirm that we have received two written confirmations from two respected Banks Fraud Departments that confirm that Banco Central Do Brasil Bank Instruments issued by Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group are Fraudulent.

The Undisputed Evidence of Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Groups Confirmed Fraud

1/ Banco Central Do Brasil Confirms Fraud

Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group offered to sell our client 3 or 4 Banco Central Do Brasil Bank Instruments. After a number of questionable actions by Mr Osias our client became suspicious and the client then held a face to face meeting with Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group were the client presented to Mr Osias the Banco Central Do Brasil documents Mr Osias had previously supplied the client by email and the client asked Mr Osias if:

a) He has personally supplied the Bank Instruments in the clients hand? To which he replied Yes

b) Were the Bank Instruments in the clients hands authentic, genuine and real? To which he replied Yes

Following the face to face meeting with Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group the client sent the Bank Instrument documents supplied by Mr Osias to the Banco Central Do Brasil for verification. The Banco Central Do Brasils written response is below confirming all documents it received are 100% Fake and Fraudulent and they have referred the matter to the Brazilian Federal Police for Investigation.

2/ HSBC London Confirms Fraud

Our client was purchasing the Bank Instruments with the intention to deliver them to HSBC London, so the client also sent copies of the Banco Central Do Brasil Bank Instruments supplied by Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group to HSBC London for verification and approval. The clients confirmation of HSBC Londons response is below:

Email 1

Bass Mint Email 5

Email 2

Bass Mint Email 1

Email 3

Bass Mint Email 2

Email 4

Bass Mint Email 4

The result..... HSBC London confirmed the Bank Instrument Documents supplied by Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group were 100% Fake and they have referred them to the London Police who have immediately launched a Police Fraud investigation into Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group in Canada.

Evidence 1: Fraudulent Bank Instruments supplied by Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group are below:

We have redacted the clients details to protect their privacy.

Evidence 2: Swift.net Fraud by Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group

In August 2016 Secure Platform Funding posted this detailed article exposing Swift.net Fraud on Bank Instruments that were issued by Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group. Read the full detail of the Banco Central Do Brasil Swift.net Fraud article here

Warning

FORMAL WARNING: Any client dealing with Carl Edward Osias of Bass Mint Management Group is hereby warned this company is now formally under Police investigation for fraud by two different Police Agencies and BOTH Banco Central Do Brasil and HSBC London have confirmed Bank Instruments issued by Bass Mint Management Group are Fake. We strongly recommend any clients immediately cease any dealings with Carl Edward Osias or Bass Mint Management Group or take their own independent legal advice.

Update: On 13th March 2017 we were contacted by the original client who supplied all the above evidence (including full unredacted emails and documents) to us and approved us to write this article in order to warn other investors. On the 13th March 2017 the client asked us to remove this article and after careful consideration we declined the clients request because the article is factual, accurate, was approved by the client previously and contains important information other clients deserve to know and we believe the clients request to us was likely made under duress.

Any client who has additional information on Carl Edward Osias or Bass Mint Management Group please Contact Us here.

Menlo Investments Limited Hijacked by Scammers

The Best Scam of 2016! Menlo Investments Limited

This Scammer hijacked Menlo Investments, a legitimate company and used it to scam Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars posing as an authentic BG & SBLC Issuer when the whole time he was 100% Fake.

What is better than hijacking a real, authentic, legitimate company, that has been trading for years with no negative publicity which has a respected UK Attorney as a Director who signs all your documents and the business has disclosed public links to Barclays Bank, has offices in Londons Banking HQ AND has.... Publicly filed accounts showing a 86 Million pound Profit in 2015. Menlo Investments Limited which was Incorporated on the 5th December 1997 was the perfect target and sadly scammers have taken full advantage of it.

This scam has probably only been operating from the 27th September 2016 until today's date 2nd December 2016 and in that period of just over 2 months staff at the "genuine" Menlo Investments office have advised they know of at least 12 clients who have been scammed and lost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Secure Platform Funding...Warning Ignored!

When this client came to Secure Platform Funding to have us monetize a SBLC from Menlo Investments Limited in the UK issued by HSBC Bank, London, our Compliance Department reviewed the Menlo Investments documents and warned the client not to proceed. The Client ignored our WARNING and was scammed out of $65,000 Euros and the scammers wanted a lot more!

The Secure Platform Funding warning was based on simple maths! Menlo Investments documents offered the client the delivery of a 50M HSBC SBLC for just $35,000 Euros. The Bank fees for the delivery of an 50M SBLC are significantly higher than $35,000 Euros so it was clear there was no possible way that Menlo Investments the SBLC issuer could have delivered the SBLC for the price they were charging the client.

But the client who was motivated to pay as little as he could, ignored our advice and proceeded to engage Menlo Investments to deliver a 50M HSBC Bank, London SBLC to us for Monetization. BIG MISTAKE! In life you get what you pay for. Pay peanuts get peanuts! Banks dont give Bank assets away cheap, they never have and they never will.

The client paid $65,000 Euros (because once the client paid $35,000 Euro to the scammer, he then said they needed more money to deliver the SBLC, so the client paid them another $30,000 Euros, Total Loss $65,000 Euros). And the client  received NOTHING! NO SWIFT, NO INSTRUMENT AND EVENTUALLY NO EMAILS OR PHONE CALLS REPLIED TO!

Here is a brief look at the scam..... The Documents below are real documents from this scam but have been redacted to remove the name of the client who was victim.

Real HSBC Application Form Utilized (Fake)

Invoice 1_001

Invoice 2:  $30,000 Euro with Two Menlo Investments Corporate Seals

Invoice 2_001

The Scammer even used a Menloinvestments.co.uk email address

The Scammer used this domain name below in all communications to scam clients, so either the scammer registered this domain name so he could use it exclusively or he hacked the "genuine" Menlo Investments email server. Either way the scammer used menloinvestments.co.uk which is actually registered to the "genuine" Menlo Investments address to represent himself as Patrick Brittain Volsey, Menlo Investments Director and Attorney - full details here.

Menlo Investments Whois

Menlo Investments Director & Lawyer Patrick Brittan Voiseys Passport used on all Scammer Documents!

Patricks Passport

Menlo Investments Signature, Company Seal and Director ID used on all Scammer Documents!

Patricks Signature

Summary

This was a sophisticated scam where either Menlo Investments have experienced a significant data breach or the Scammer has taken a lot of time recreating himself as Menlo Investments Patrick Brittain Voisey to maximise the revenue from his scam.

The Scam was finally uncovered when Menlo Investments delivered NOTHING, no RWA, no swift MT799, and no Swift MT760. At Secure Platform Fundings request the client flew from Europe to Menlo Investments offices in London and to HSBC Bank in London to verify sadly that he was the 12th Victim to be scammed using the above documents.

Currently there is no warning about this scam on the internet, we have written this article to save more victims from entering the scam and by disclosing the scam we hope to bring a stop to it.

It should be noted that Menlo Investments Limited is a legitimate business with significant turnover and assets, sadly their legitimate business has been misused seemingly without their knowledge or consent and they are a victim as much as the clients who have lost money to this scammer are. It would be wise for Menlo Investments to issue a public statement on this scam and the misrepresentation of their business by the scammers. We would welcome a public statement by Menlo Investments and would happily publish it here or link directly to it.

Another Fake BG Issuer Exposed for Sending Forged Swifts!

This week a client of ours paid 250,000 Euros for WP Holding & Management (Deutschland) Ltd to deliver us a MT799 for 500 Million from Barclays Bank London , the MT799 was supposed to be followed by a MT760 so we could monetize the Bank Guarantee. But the Problem was all the provider delivered was a fake document (made on a word processor) that they "claimed" as the MT799 that was sent on the bank swift.com network. It was never sent on the swift.com network at all!

This company sent us a Fake MT799!

Provider Details

Fake MT799 Swift sent by WP Holding & Management (Deutschland) Ltd on the 30th September 2016

Below is the actual copy of the MT799 Swift provided by WP Holding & Management (Deutschland) Ltd that they claimed was "real". The only real thing in this swift is our banking information which we have redacted.

  • The format of the MT799 swift is wrong!
  • It was never sent on the swift.com network!
  • It does not have the swift logo!
  • It does not have the swift bar code!
  • and there are a million other things wrong with it!

WP Holding & Management (Deutschland) Ltd provided a Swift Mt799 made on a word processor that is a very poor forgery!

Fake Mt799 Swift Barclays

What was WP Holding & Management (Deutschland) Ltds Game?

WP Holding & Management (Deutschland) Ltd said they were "really concerned" that the monetizer may not be able to perform so they got the client to sign an agreement where the client agreed to pay a 250,000 Euro fine if the Monetizer did not respond to BG Providers MT799! Then they sent a fake MT799 that they knew we could not respond to because it didn't exist in the swift.com network. In essence they set the client up to lose 250,000 Euro and had no intention of delivering any real bank instrument at all!

Word of Warning.....

If your going to send Secure Platform Funding a Fake Swift, we are going to EXPOSE YOU! We are a Real Monetizer that makes money closing Real Deals with Real Clients and Real Providers! Fake providers waste our time and our customers time and money and are the scourge of the industry.

Swift.net Fraud

Secure Platform Funding makes money closing real deals with real customers we have zero interest wasting time on fraudulent deals so in an effort to help our clients and brokers better identify fraudulent transactions here is an example we received today of a Deal that is red hot Swift.net fraud.

1/ Recently we published an article titled WARNING: The Unrated Bank Guarantee Scam where we said the following about a Swift.Net Fraud Scam.....

This is a very sneaky scam where the Bank Guarantee or Standby Letter of Credit Provider says they can ONLY deliver the bank guarantee on swift.net instead of swift.com. That statement alone is a huge red flag! ALL real banks and ALL real bank guarantees or stand by letters of credit are normally transmitted and delivered on the swift.com bank to bank system that is used and recognized by all rated banks worldwide or DTC or Euroclear. Any bank who says they cannot deliver on swift.com is saying i don't have access to the "real" bank guarantee and standby letter of credit delivery system, I can only use swift.net which is a completely different system by a very similar name. Swift.net DOES NOT HAVE ANYWHERE NEAR the credibility, recognition, security or acceptance of swift.com.

And the biggest secondary issue with swift.net is that messages often do not arrive directly at the destination because they have to be "downloaded" to be read. If you don't know a message is coming and you don't download it then you never know about the message and therefore its impossible for you to reply!

Many Providers use swift.net to send a worthless Bank Guarantees, Standby Letters of Credit or Blocked Funds to the client on the widely unrecognized swift.net service, then when no one at the clients receiving location acknowledges the message because they didn't know to download it, the bank guarantee provider claims they delivered the Bank Instrument as per YOUR Bank Instrument Supply Contract and YOU breached YOUR contract by NOT replying to the swift.net message so they are keeping your deposit. Its just another sad old scam to take your money repackaged in a new way.

2/ We also published this article titled The Blocked Funds Email Scam, the below Blocked Funds Swift.net fraud example is a hybrid of a Swift.net Fraud Scam AND the Blocked Funds Scam. The scammers seem to have taken a little from each strategy so we thought we would reward their ingenuity by exposing them!

Why is this a Swift.net Fraud Scam?

The below Banco Central Do Brasil Blocked Funds Swift.net Fraud example contains actual live documents that were received by Secure Platform Funding on the 27th August 2016 from a broker, out of courtesy for those named in the transaction documents we have redacted some information so the below detailed analysis of the documents is not too embarrassing for those that were originally named.

Please view the documents below and then read the detailed analysis underneath them to understand how fake these "live" documents are:

Swift.net Fraud Example 1

BCB €1B Cash Funds File - Bank Statement (Account balance Summary) - Fraud 1a Example

Swift.net Fraud Example 2

BCB €1B Cash Funds File - RWA Letter & MT760 Verbiage - Fraud2 Example1
BCB €1B Cash Funds File - RWA Letter & MT760 Verbiage - Fraud 3a Example

Swift.net Fraud Deal Analysis

Warning 1: Swift.net is not the primary recognized platform for major rated banks to complete 1 Billion Dollar transactions! Swift.com is the internationally recognized and endorsed platform All Rated Banks utilize.

Warning 2: The above transaction is listed as a Swift.net transaction but the documents contain the Swift.com SWIFT CODE: BCBRBRDFORG. So what is a Swift.com Code doing on a Swift.net Transaction?

Warning 3: The words Swift.net are misspelt "Switf.net" not once but TWICE! Banks don't make mistakes, there are two Bank Officers that sign off every Bank Instrument transaction. Both Bank Officers are employed to check every aspect of the Bank Instrument text before it is released. It is impossible that two different bank officers failed to see "Switf.net" spelt wrongly in the Bank Instrument text TWICE!.

Warning 4: The fact that "Switf.net" is spelt wrong invalidates the entire Bank Instrument making it worthless! Maybe the instrument issuer spelt "Switf.net" wrong deliberately for that exact reason!

Warning 5: The Bank Instrument text says "as our Sovereign Bank only uses Switf.net" that is a blatant lie!

A) Below is confirmation from the Swift.com website that Banco Central Do Brasil has no less than 7 Different Swift Codes on Swift.com that the bank uses every day for thousands and thousands of transactions. It is completely untrue to state that the Banco Central Do Brasil "only uses Switf.net" when clear public evidence exists BOTH on Swift.com and Banco Central Do Brasils own web site that disproves this.

B) Banco Central Do Brasil isn't a little bank, it is the Central Bank of Brazil that controls the entire Brazilian economy! To say that the Central Bank of Brazil controlling billions of dollars of the Brazilian Economy doesn't work on any other bank transaction network apart from Swift.net is total lunacy!

Secure Platform Funding Banco Central Do Brazil

Swift.net Fraud Summary

The above Bank Instrument is as fake as a $3 Bill! Our strongest recommendation is that if you have a real client with with a real transaction make sure that transaction is completed on Swift.com, Euroclear or DTCC. Swift.net has too much fraud associated with it for any bank to want to complete a significant Bank Instrument transaction using that network.

Secure Platform Funding ONLY wants to complete genuine transactions, our Compliance Department screens out a ton of fraudulent deals every week. Fraudulent deals hurt clients, waste time, damage supplier relationships and cost money. We hate them and that's why we wrote this detailed article exposing the Swift.net Fraud that exists and encouraging our clients and brokers to stay well away from it. Be informed and be safe.

The Blocked Funds Email Scam

The Blocked Funds Email Scam is common in the industry on an all too regular basis!

The Blocked Funds email scam is when..... A customer "claims" to have a large amount of blocked funds in their account at their own bank and the customer wants to send a blocked funds confirmation email from banker to banker (from their Issuing Bank to the Receiving Bank) to confirm the blocked funds in his account and have the Receiving Bank accept the confirmation email as "real" and allocate his blocked funds email amount into a PPP (Private Placement Program) at the Receiving Bank.

Often preceding the Bank to Bank email or attached to the email is an "Official" Bank Letter confirming the Blocked funds on the Issuing Banks Letterhead.

Secure Platform Funding Stop Fraud

This is a complete Scam! But a very sophisticated Scam!

Here is how the Blocked Funds Email Scam Operates

1/ The Scammer simply Forges a Bank Letter or a Bank Statement showing he is Funds in his Issuing Banks account that can be blocked and that his bank is ready to confirm the Blocked Funds by Banker to Banker email.

2/ The Scammer then and spoofs an email address from the Issuing Bank and sends the Blocked Funds confirmation Banker to Banker. Email Spoofing is when you send an email pretending to be someone else. There are a million ways to Spoof a banks email address, it is commonly done for phising scams as illustrated in the fake NatWest Bank phising email scam below. Here are a few clues on how scammers Spoof Emails impersonating someone else.

The Danger of this scam is the Receiving Bank genuinely gets a real email from the Issuing Bank confirming they have blocked the clients funds (which don't exist) and approving the Receiving Bank to use the Blocked Funds in PPP! The biggest issue is email spoofing has become so sophisticated that often there is no way for the Receiving bank to know the email is not genuine or real and is actually sent from a scammer not from the Issuing Bank!

Scammers have also got so smart that the good ones now include a phone number on the bank email and bank letter using the same area code as the regular bank phone numbers but when you ring the scammers bank phone number it diverts to the scammers cellphone without the Receiving Bank Officers knowing.

Example of Natwest Bank Email Phising Scam Below

Natwest_Phising_Scam

Exposing the Fakes and the False

  1. No Bank will now accept Blocked Funds notifications by email, none! Anyone asking for Blocked Funds to be transmitted by email is never going to be successful.
  2. Banks are well aware Bank Emails can be Spoofed and Bank Phone calls can be Spoofed and because of this the only form of communication banks treat as authentic are Bank to Bank Swift transmissions than can be independently verified by Swift.com
  3. If a client can not confirm his Blocked Funds by Bank to Bank Swift Mt799 or Mt760 then there is a VERY HIGH likelihood the client is fraudulent.
  4. Secure Platform Funding operates a successful Blocked Funds Mt799 Program where the ONLY Blocked Funds Confirmation we accept is Bank to Bank Swift Mt799 or Mt760.

Secure Platform Funding is solely interested in doing Real Deals with Real Clients who want Real Results and can send Blocked Funds Confirmations by Real Swift, nothing else is safe or acceptable.

WARNING: The Unrated Bank Guarantee Scam

There is a huge misconception in the market that all BGs (Bank Guarantees) are similar and have the same value, have the same LTV ratio when Monetized and have the same desirability. That reality is that is completely untrue!

Comparing a Rated Banks Bank Guarantee with an Unrated Banks Bank Guarantee is like comparing Chalk and Cheese, the Real with the Fake, a Ferrari with a Broken Down Camakuza or in the example below.... Gold with Total Rubbish!

Rated Bank BG

Secure Platform Funding Gold

Unrated Bank BG

Secure Platform Funding Rubbish

The most foolish and most dangerous thing in the world is being conned into thinking an Unrated Bank Guarantee is the same as a Rated Bank Guarantee. The truth is they are completely different and not even in the same galaxy together!

The value of a Bank Guarantee is determined largely on the quality of the financial institution that is issuing it. This is because a..... "Bank Guarantee" is the Issuing Banks "guarantee" of payment and therefore the "guarantee" is only as good and only as strong and only as valuable as the Bank that is issuing it.

World Top 50 Banks offer the the best Bank Guarantees because they are large, stable financial institutions that do not default on their promises, and ultimately a Bank Guarantee is the Banks Promise to Pay!

The Unrated Bank Scam....

There are a bunch of unrated bank scams operating which deliberately deceive customers into buying an Unrated Bank Guarantee from a fake or phony Bank Guarantee provider because its "cheap". In life you always get what you pay for, if you buy rubbish, all you have is rubbish! You cant dress a pig up and make it a princess, its all ways going to be a pig!

Sadly many Unrated Bank Guarantees aren't worth the paper they are written on!

Here are a selection of the known Unrated Bank Guarantee Scams that operate:

Unrated Bank Guarantee Scam 1: The Insolvent Bank - An Unrated Bank that has less than 10 Million Dollars in Capital but issues 100 Million Dollar Bank Guarantees multiple times a week for 52 weeks a year. Do the maths..... by the end of the year this quality financial institution (ha ha ha) has issued billions of dollars in bank guarantees when the Unrated Bank has less than 10 Million Dollars Capital to its name.

I know what your thinking.... How do they get away with that? The answer is simple, they issue Leased Bank Guarantees that cannot be cashed in when they expire so they have little or no financial risk or liability writing as many Bank Guarantees as they like all year long.

Unrated Bank Guarantee Scam 2: The Claytons Pretend Bank - Most people see the word "bank" and they immediately think its safe and secure, the truth is that is not true! It is very easy to start a Bank, you can buy a Bank here, or you can buy a Banking License here. Or you can Setup your own Bank from $30,000 here! The funny thing is some banks have cost less to setup than they charge to issue you with one of their Bank Guarantees!

Secure Platform Funding Buster
Secure Platform Funding Fraud

Many Unrated Banks prey on innocent clients by pretending to have credibility and integrity when they do not. They "play" on the security that the word "bank" gives them and they convey they are safe, secure and valuable when THEY ARE NOT! They are Clayton's Banks, Pretend banks, they carry the bank name but are just a facade with nothing behind it. They are a shell company with a banking license, and that is why when they issue a bank guarantee... it has no value, because there bank has no value.

Unrated Bank Guarantee Scam 3: Not a Bank - Their are plenty of companies who don't want the hassle of registering as a bank so instead they just call themselves a "finance company" with a banking kind of a name. Then they register with swift.com to be accepted to send and receive bank SWIFT messages. This enables them to issue unrated Bank Guarantees on the Bank Swift Network when they are neither reputable, reliable or even a Unrated Bank. They use the fact they  have a SWIFT Code as a way of gaining credibility and conning people into thinking they are (cough cough) a quality bank guarantee provider.

Unrated Bank Guarantee Scam 4: The Old Swift Machine in the Basement Trick - This is probably the nastiest of all unrated bank scams. These guys are criminals and their only desire is to take your money and run. Through one means or another (legally or illegally) they have obtained access to a swift terminal and they use that terminal to print off fake Bank Guarantee swifts which they send you by fax or email claiming these swifts were sent on the swift system to your bank coordinates and therefore they have delivered the service you requested and your money is all theirs to keep.

We have seen BOTH fake paper swifts and fake electronic swifts from a bunch of unrated providers.

Unrated Bank Guarantee Scam 5: Swift.Net Only - This is a very sneaky scam where the Unrated Bank Guarantee Provider says they can ONLY deliver the bank guarantee on swift.net instead of swift.com. That statement alone is a huge red flag! ALL real banks and ALL real bank guarantees are normally transmitted and delivered on the swift.com bank to bank system that is used and recognized by all banks worldwide or DTC or Euroclear. Any unrated bank who says they cannot deliver on swift.com is saying i don't have access to the "real" bank guarantee delivery system, I can only use swift.net which is a completely different system by a very similar name. Swift.net DOES NOT HAVE ANYWHERE NEAR the credibility, recognition, security or acceptance of swift.com.

And the biggest secondary issue with swift.net is that messages often do not arrive directly at the destination because they have to be "downloaded" to be read. If you don't know a message is coming and you don't download it then you never know about the message and therefore its impossible for you to reply!

Many Unrated Providers use swift.net to send a worthless Bank Guarantee to the client on the widely unrecognized  swift.net service, then when no one at the clients receiving location acknowledges the message because they didn't know to download it, the bank guarantee provider claims they delivered the Bank Guarantee as per YOUR BG Issuing Contract and YOU breached YOUR contract by NOT replying to the swift.net message so they are keeping your deposit. Its just another sad old scam to take your money repackaged in a new way.

Final Word: Not all Unrated Banks are frauds or scammers their are some genuine Unrated Banks who are normally small operations that provide niche market or regional services. However, even if an Unrated Bank is authentic monetizers will be reluctant to take a Unrated Banks Bank Guarantee and IF they do accept the Unrated Bank Guarantee it will normally attract a MUCH LOWER LTV than a comparable Bank Guarantee from a Rated Bank.

RECOMMENDATION: We recommend clients only get Bank Guarantees issued form Rated Banks so you can enjoy Higher Monetization LTVs and lower risk transactions. We recommend clients AVOID these Banned Assets and Financial Instrument Providers, we will NOT Monetize assets from any of these providers!

FREE Bank Guarantees – No Money Down

Once upon a time in a city far far away a lonely man with no money decided it would be fun to start a rumor.... He had played the game of Chinese Whispers before and thought it would be a great joke if he told everyone that...... You could get Free Bank Guarantees, without paying any money until the BG was delivered to the funder.

FREE Bank GuaranteesIn a daring moment the lonely man spread the rumor to all his friends, within weeks everyone was talking about how you could get Bank Guarantees worth Millions of Dollars for FREE, without ANY Money Upfront, Free Bank Guarantees! The news spread like wildfire as desperate people latched on to the hope of a pipe dream that was started as a lie and was in fact 100% Untrue the entire time!

The Sad Reality is our industry is full of people that believe the fairy tale that Bank Guarantees can be obtained with NO MONEY UPFRONT. The fact is they can't! They never have been able to be purchased for free and they never will be! ALL banks especially Top 100 banks charge fees to create and transmit the Bank Guarantee to a Funder. NO BANK will do that for free! No Bank will take the risk on a transaction for the customer. NONE!

If the bank is not paid, no Bank Guarantee will EVER get sent. And if the customer (you) are not paying for the bank guarantee to be sent.... then it wont be sent and no deal will ever be concluded! You can be absolutely sure that NO BG ISSUER is going to pay the bank fees for you, why would they? If they own the BG and they pay the Bank Fees as well, why do they need you as the customer? They may as well transmit the BG to the Funder themselves and keep all the profit for themselves. Why would they share a cent with a client who has put up no money and taken no risk?

FREE Bank GuaranteesIts just a bad joke that people believe the free BG fairy tale! Regrettably so many people are busy believing the "I can get a Bank Guarantee with No Upfront Fees Lie" that they waste hundreds of hours each year trying to find the Gold at the end of the Rainbow that DOES NOT EXIST & NEVER HAS EXISTED!

$1,000 Reward Offered

We will pay any client $1,000 who can show us documented evidence of all stages of a BG Transaction being Issued, Funded and over 1 Million Dollars being paid to the clients account with the client putting No Money Upfront. Yes thats right, we will pay any client who has transacted a deal $1,000 if they can show us accurate, factual, irrefutable documentary proof that they have completed the funding of ANY BG transaction (must be a recent transaction of no more than 3 months old) with ANY rated bank and banked a profit of over 1 million dollars.

Please, I beg you, prove us wrong! If there are hundreds of people doing Bank Guarantee Deals for Free.... and there should be because everyone is talking about it...... then come take our $1,000 money!

IMPORTANT NOTE - As of the original date this article was posted, which was 25th February 2015.... NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON has EVER come forward with ANY evidence EVER that ANY one has EVER completed a Bank Guarantee Deal for FREE!

The truth is this..... too many people have been scammed out of Upfront Fee Money, and as a result of having a bad experience those same people made up an investment rule up in their mind that they would now only enter a transaction if they did not have to risk any money or put any money up front. This effectively created a rule that prevents them from having ANY success or EVER completing ANY BG transaction because without money paid upfront to cover the bank costs, NO deal will ever get concluded!

Try going to your local airline and telling the airline i need you to fly me across the country for free and when i get to my destination i will pay you then! See how many plane rides you can take..... NONE! Freeloaders get Nowhere!

The problem with most people is they haven't thought through their own logic, they are so caught up in the greed and dream of making millions of dollars from nothing that they have never considered the possibility that they are believing in a lie. There are no free lunches in life, there certainly are no free million dollar lunches in life, if you don't pay for it you don't get it, its that simple. You get what you pay for, pay nothing, get nothing. Its the most fundamental economic principle and Bank Guarantees are operating in the center of the economic world.

If free Bank Guarantees were a reality..... Every homeless person in Europe would be doing BG deals every week.

But FREE Bank Guarantees are not a reality, they are a fairy tale, a legend promoted by poor people to live on the hope of a dream to get rich from nothing. You have more chance of buying a lottery ticket and winning the lottery than ever completing a BG Deal for free. At least with the lottery ticket you paid the money to receive the chance.

With BGs, if you don't pay to play, you will never get your money day.

BANK GUARANTEE WARNING: 5 Ways to Lose Money – Beware!

IMPORTANT BANK GUARANTEE WARNING: 5 Ways to Lose Money – Beware! Too many clients have lost too much money in the Bank Guarantee industry by foolishly and naively being conned by unscrupulous people. Clients get lured by the promise of high returns and because of inexperience get caught in some pretty nasty pit falls and lose their money. This article is written to warn and educate clients so they can AVOID LOSING MONEY and SAFELY COMPLETE BANK GUARANTEE TRANSACTIONS WITHOUT LOSING YOUR SHIRT!

Many of our clients wish to purchase Bank Guarantees for Monetization, Discounting or Funding. If you do this it is CRITICAL you get it right! There is no margin for error when your dealing with millions if dollars!

There are some big traps uninformed customers fall into that cost them a lot of money or the whole deal. Secure Platform Funding would like to partner with you and help you navigate the mine field of the bank guarantee market so you can safely and successfully get deals completed.

Here are just a few Mistakes people make….. that have Cost foolish investors many many $$$$

Mistake 1: Buying a BG that is Neutered - Some sneaky companies issue neutered Bank Guarantees. That is a Bank Guarantee that can only be used for credit enhancement on a companies books but can never be monetized or traded. It’s a nasty surprise you get when you realize your pristine Bank Guarantee delivered by MT760 to your Monetizer is……. useless!

Mistake 2: Buying a BG that has the Word Leased written on the Bank Guarantee – Leased Bank Guarantees can be monetized IF they do not have the word "leased" written on the MT799 or MT760. If you buy a Bank Guarantee that has the word “leased” in the Bank Guarantee text when it is delivered to the funder or monetizer. You just got screwed and have a worthless piece of paper you can’t use! None of the Bank Guarantees offered by Secure Platform Funding contain the word leased on the Bank Guarantee, they therefore can be monetized. Don’t risk playing with fire, a cheap Bank Guarantee provider is likely to make you pay one way or another in the end! Play safe get a Bank Guarantee from Secure Platform Funding.

Secure-Platform-Funding-UpsetManMistake 3: Procedures DON’T Match – If the delivery procedures of the Bank Guarantee issuer don’t exactly match with the Bank Guarantee Monetizer, Funder or Discounter you will never get the Bank Guarantee delivered because the two parties are incompatible with each other. You just can’t put a round peg in a square hole! In our experience up to 40% of Bank Guarantee deliveries to funders FAIL because the procedures between the parties are incompatible. It is sickening to see clients with failed transactions caught in a blame game of table tennis between Bank Guarantee Issuer and Bank Guarantee Funder who each point the finger at one another. Avoid this nightmare, just use our prestructured, prenegotiated Managed Bank Guarantee Program.

Mistake 4: The No Bank Play – When your Bank Guarantee Issuing Agreement with you lists them sending a MT999 or MT799 from a non bank entity to the monetizers or funder bank entity. You’ve been screwed! This is a huge scam because many Bank Guarantee Issuers issue from non bank entities that have names that sound like banks but aren’t! Authentic Banks will not reply or communicate with Non Banks Entities or private companies that send the bank messages on the SWIFT network. Those messages are treated like an annoying mosquito, it buzzes into the bank on the SWIFT network and is swatted away to the rubbish bin as soon as the bank realizes it was sent from a non bank entity!

Upset Businessman --- Image by © Bob Jacobson/CorbisThe Bank Guarantee Issuer then claims they delivered service to the bank and that because the bank did not perform or respond, then the Bank Guarantee Issuer keeps all your money because they claim the bank defaulted on your contract. Ouch!

Mistake 5: No CUSIP or ISIN Number – Some Bank Guarantee monetizers or funders will only accept Bank Guarantees with CUSIP or ISIN Numbers. This means they will NOT accept a fresh cut bank guarantee, ONLY seasoned instruments (which is a Bank Guarantee that has been created by one Bank and issued to a second bank who them registers the CUSIP and ISIN numbers of the instrument). Seasoned Bank Guarantees cost more because they have to be passed through two banks to become seasoned and are generally are only available to be purchased from secondary owners not direct from the Bank Guarantee Issuing Bank. We monetize fresh cut and seasoned instruments, as long as the bank guarantee is 100% real we will monetize it and ensure you bank cash no matter whether its fresh cut or seasoned.

The above Mistakes are the Tip of the Iceberg!

There are many many more!
