Jakiś czas temu otrzymałem od jednego z naszych czytelników dość szczegółowo opisaną historię próby elektronicznego oszustwa. Mimo upływu kilku miesięcy warto przypomnieć jak mniej więcej działali oszuści. Sprawa jest o tyle ciekawa, że dotyczy dość wąskiego grona użytkowników, acz pokazuje, że cyberoszuści czają się wszędzie. Nasz czytelnik wystawił na sprzedaż konia na portalu sprzedaz-koni.pl.
Zgłosił się do niego (mailem) niejaki Sturtgartem Fritz, który podawał się za obywatela USA. Napisał maila, że jest zainteresowany zakupem. Był w stanie zapłacić za konia każdą cenę, a chęć zakupu tłumaczył tak, iż ma być to prezent dla żony. W połowie akcji dochodzi straszenie FBI i więzieniem (!) oraz fałszywe potwierdzenia przelania pieniędzy, a całość dość zawiłej sytuacji skierowana jest oczywiście na wyłudzenie pieniędzy z konta sprzedawcy konia. Co ważne, tego typu oszustwa nie sprowadzają się wyłącznie do sprzedaży koni ale także innych przedmiotów np. samochodów. Warto więc poznać mniej więcej proceder oszustwa by przestrzec znajomych.
W dużym skrócie całość wygląda tak:
- kontaktuje się z nami osoba, która chce kupić od nas określone dobro
- po podaniu danych do konta bankowego, otrzymujemy fałszywe potwierdzenie wykonania przelewu
- następnie kontaktuje się z nami firma przewozowa, że potrzebne jest wykonanie przelewu na kwotę kilkuset euro by doprowadzić transakcję do końca
- otrzymujemy fałszywe potwierdzenia z banku i informacje o potrzebie zapłacenia firmie przewozowej
- jeśli wciąż nie opłaciliśmy przelewu, otrzymujemy informację od FBI zastraszającą i nakłaniającą do zapłaty
Kilka maili podajemy ku przestrodze poniżej:

Dear Valuable Customer,
We are contacting to you on behalf of the transfer between you and Engr. Sturtgart Frizt and we will like to inform to you that the transfer of your money is still on pending because you will need to make a payment of 300.00 Euro back to us which is for the shipping company so that the shipping company can come ahead for the pickup of the Horse.
The reason for the payment of the 300.00 Euro is due to the fact that the buyer of your Auto Engr. Sturtgart Friztt made an extra payment of x,000.00 Euro from our banking system to your account because the shipping company requested that the money for the shipping is to be sent to their headquarter In Senegal where the Auto is to be shipped to in which the form of payment is via Western Union Money Transfer but the buyer of the Auto Engr. Sturtgart Frizt is presently on the Marine sea ship and do not have access to the Western Union Money Transfer so that is the reason why he paid an extra Additional Payment so that you can pay the shipping company as well.
So we will like to inform to you that the transfer of your money is in process and as soon as we receive the payment of the 300.00 Euro for the shipping company we will immediately activate the x,000.00 Euro into your bank account because the money have already being paid and all that we wait for is your response.

Dears Valuable Customer
We are contact you on behalf of CITIZEN ONLINE BANKING concerning the picking of the horse, THE CITIZEN ONLINE BANKING , informed us that
(THE PAYMENT WAS PAID BY YOUR BUYER) We had a contact our head of department in Senegal, the only thing we need from you to come and pick the horse from your
House, its the full details of your contact home address, and question you want know about of picking the horse,
The horse should arrive to the airport at least 5 hours prior to departure. In this way one can take enough time to load the horse into the stall and allow him to
adjust to the noise and the smell. Also the horses are loaded to the airplane in time supervised by the flight-attendant. If problems occur it still leaves time
to find a solution and in extreme cases, they can even take a horse off the flight.
This to guarantee the safety of other horses and/or passengers on board.
Horses by Air ApS can take care of any objects during an international horsetransport:
Only a few destinations require vaccinations away from the normal influenza vaccinations. Some countries do however have specific requirements. More countries
require pre-bloodtests for specific diseases and/or CEM swabs for mares & stallions. Some countries will carry out these tests themselves during the quarantine
period. When shipping to such destinations we strongly recommend still to do the pre-tests before departure in order to make sure, that the horse is not tested
positive, as this will mean entry denied, and the horse will have to be returned.
Moreover, as the CITIZEN ONLINE BANK Informed us, You will bear the shipping charges of picking the horse at your door step, we urge to send to send the shipping
charges of 300.00 euro to our Head of Department Headquarter In senegal and provide us all the necesaary information as below
