This massive scam involves the setting up of fake websites for various imaginary Russian oil, energy, mineral, agrochemical, natural gas and coal companies. To support the scam, fake Russian government, associations, banks, law firms, shipping companies, and due diligence websites are also set up. The purpose is to induce the victim into paying advance fees for non-existent oil or other commodities. Fake documents are sent to the potential victim as further inducement. Many scammers will request an advance payment or fee from $30,000 to even $150,000, before any oil is delivered, since, of course no oil will ever be delivered. One of the biggest indications that a website is fake is when it was registered. Real Russian oil companies have been in business for years,so if a website was registered within the last year, it is fake. The fee is usually for some fake government or association allocation code, license fee, tax, contract servicing, authorization fee, mandate seller fee, down payment, federation fee, Russian Ministry fee, pipeline fee, Uraltransneft fee, etc. The fake advance fees are only limited by the scammer’s imagination, so keep in mind that ANY request for an advance fee is likely a scam! Frequently, the scammers request the fake fees be paid to some fake government officials or oil association agents through a fake websites or a fellow scammer like a fake tank farm. These scammers will state that such payment or fees are “customary.” They are not! ANY ADVANCE FEE IS LIKELY TO BE A SCAM! Here is an example of scam contract language containing scam advance fees:
Scammers have gotten more sophisticated. They now don’t necessarily ask for obvious advance fee fees to imaginary Russian agencies. They try to get you to pay upfront fees for storage or shipping of the oil before you actually receive it. Of course, since they have no oil, you will never receive it!
