FraudAid.com Complaints & Reviews - Online scam
|FraudAid.com Contacts & Informations|
I had been using Fraudaid.com to report scams that I receive on a daily basis. I followed their instructions and forwarded emails to them as it stated to do so on their site. Most of my emails got sent back to me with a message stating that they could not use the report. The returned emails did not state specifically what I was doing wrong. I tried different things and made sure that it was not being sent as an attachment. I then received a very nasty reply message that stated something like this: THIS IS YOUR FINAL WARNING!!! YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD TO COMPLY AND SEND REPORTS THAT ARE NOT ATTACHMENTS!!! FURTHER EMAILS WILL BE DELETED!!!
I find this reply to be unprofessional when they could have stated in a better way: Dear sir, We are receiving emails from you that are attachments. Please check your email settings, best regards. Fraudaid. I did not know that aol was sending them as attachments and I had selected the option to not send them that way. I emailed Fraudaid and they did not even bother to reply back. I do not want to be contacted by Fraudaid for any reason, It is apparent to me that they are rude and do not know how to communicate with people in a civil manner. I will make it a point to post complaints about them on other sites as well. Their motto is "spread the word" well, I'm going to spread the word about them.

I found the instructions on how to check before emailing to be very explicit and clear and explained why those types of emails were useless to their effort. The instructions for AOL are very easy to understand.

This is an abandoned sum of money in the bank where i work which the owner died with his entire family in a plane crash living no next of kin behind to claim the money that is why i have contacted you to apply as his next of kin and provide a foriegn account where this money will be transfered into if the bank approves your application.Mind you that your age does not matter in this transaction it is all about trust and confidence.
I work in the bank and will give you all informations that will lead to the claiming of this money the only thing you will do for me is to keep the transaction as a top secret untill the money is transfered into your account because the bank will sack me if they notice that i am behind the claim.
ABOUT THE LATE MR PAUL LOUIS HALLEY.
Mr Paul Louis Halley was a France Citizen.He was a rich business man dealing in properties/Business Bonds and Oil in his home country and Africa.
Before i finally decided to seize this opportunity to transfer the fund in his account using a foreigner as her next of kin, i have searched for one year far and near to find any of his relations to no avail. i made several enquiries to her country's embassy to locate any of his extended relative this also proved unsuccessful.
Hence, after these several unsuccessful attempts to locate any member of her family I decided to contact some one abroad or overseas to trust and transfer this fund to his account for our sharing and benefit. hence i contacted you.
TRUST AND CONFIDENCE.
i need to enphasise on the need for trust and confidence on both side as the pillar for the success of this business. you need to reassure me that you will not betray me and sit on this fund when it finally comes into your custody.At the end of the transaction, you will gain 40% of the money, 60% for me while for any expenses that may arise from the transaction we will both take care of it together.
I know and i am optimistic that this business deal will uplift our financial status, its just for you to follow my instruction and guidelines until the fund will enter your account.i need your absolute coperation in this great project.
This business is a great business and will need determination and great arrangement to succeed. The arrangement which has already been made is my underground responsibility in the bank in seeing that the whole process to be taken to achieve your approval and for the smooth transfer of your inherittance to your desired account is made without any conceivable hitch.
I assure you therefore that all loopholes are covered and all obstacles removed. this business deal will never endanger any on both sides.it is 100% free from any risk what so ever.
To remind you, this transaction is not a child's play nor a little amount involved.We are talking of over TEN MILLION AMERICAN DOLLARS, and so i will not like anybody(not even you) to spoil it for me because it had taken me years to arrive at the stage before i decided to look for a foreigner to assist me.
You do not have any risk to bear in this transaction hence, all the relevant documents involved is at hand.
And immediately the money is clear, you will quickly arrange for all my travelling documents so i can meet with you in person.
Once again, send me the complete profiles as it, s states above to enable us exceed.
May God bless you as you help out and in this matter.
I am waiting to hearing from you.

THESE ARE JUST LITTLE OF SCAMMERS INSTRUMENTS.
Their instructions are very clear and understandable for those of us that are not technically adept. I have found that Fraud Aid is an exceptionally professional not-for-profit company that serves as a place where we can report these scams. Their information is shared with law enforcement and has assisted in the arrest of scammers.
