Riggs Bank Resurrected to
move Pinochet millions by Nigerian scammers.
former dictator PINOCHET isn’t even buried yet and Nigerian 4-1-9
Advance Fee Fraud organizations, have resurrected RIGGS bank to add
credibility to their international scams, that include soliciting help
to move Pinochet’s millions
Riggs bank known as the bank
for US Presidents and diplomats, was bought in 2004 by PNC under the condition
that scandal ridden embassy business would be phased out. The name Riggs is
no longer used by its owners.
Nigerian scammers obviously
have no problem with the stained name and use the name and several Riggs bank
web sites to add credibility to their scams.
Victims of this "Riggs bank
international" get, a user ID and login password to "see the millions" and
fake transactions via bogus internetbanking.
For these fake transactions
they have to pay fees between 5.000 and 350.000 US$ depending on the
transaction, which could be getting a loan, a lottery prize, a government
contract, one of the hundreds of other Nigerian advance fee tricks, or just
the opening balance of 10.000 US$ account with this bank.
Have a look at the fake web
sites yourself for as long as the links work: http://www.riggsbk.com, http://www.riggsbint.com.
