Once he got to Turkey several issues arose. He said that the Turkish government blocks websites and so he couldn’t track his incoming shipment with goods needed for work. He asked me to track the shipment and it was a fake website at: https: // avatranslogistics.com/tracker.php. He asked me several times to check when his shipment would arrive at the port in Turkey. He said that in Turkey, he incurred charges at the port to clear goods that he had shipped there for the job. He asked me to help pay for clearance of these goods by saying that access to his banking website was blocked in Turkey due to government control of the websites. I refused and then he asked me to sign into his bank account to transfer money. The account had a large sum of money in it and he promised to use this money to pay me back. It was a fake bank website for Bank of Beirut (beirutbankuk.com) and of course the transfer didn’t work.
When I pressured him to pay me back, he said that he will get a off-shore bank account set up in my name with the money from his job deposited in it so that I can transfer the money to myself. Of course the bank had numerous fees and the bank website was a fake website for the QNB Finasbank in Turkey (www. qnbfib.com) and used emails email@example.com (belonging to Mr. Danut Bucur who supposedly worked in the Foreign Remittance Department, QNB FinansBankasi (Esentepe Mahallesi Buyukdere Caddesi, Kristal Kule Binasi, No: 215, Istanbul/Turkey) and firstname.lastname@example.org.
