Anyone know anything about globalmoneytransfers.org?

AL

A friend of mine has been sent some invitations to attend a conference
in London, put on by some outfit called Global Consumer Money
Transfers. Their website (which I can't access for some reason) is:
www.globalmoneytransfers.org

Has anyone heard of this company? Is it a scam? Any other info?

Google sisn't turn up much excet a few
news.admin.net-abuse.sightings... Does that mean it's a scam, or just
thet they have been spamming people?

Many thanks. AL

The domain name was registered in June 2005 and the owner hides behind
an agent called the "Privacy Protection Service, Inc" in the USA.
They don't have a Web server (which is why you can't access it) and
their mail server is located in Moscow although it's not possible to
send it email in the usual way because the domain name has been
removed from the DNS.

The domain name has the status of "Client Hold" which means that the
registrar has set the status so the domain name is removed from the
zone file - meaning that no Internet services, including e-mail and
Web sites, are available for this domain name.

Draw your own conclusions and bear in mind that a common scam operated
by the Russian mafia, among others, is to recruit unwitting agents to
launder stolen money. The agents are told that the company is a
legitimate business involved in transferring money around the world
for its clients and that they need to recruit agents who can make
large amounts of money for a few hours' work a week. The agents,
astonishingly enough, believe this.

It actually works by using phishing emails and key-logging trojans to
take control of people's online bank accounts. They then transfer the
contents to the bank accounts of their agents, who are asked to
withdraw trhe money in cash, keep 20% for their trouble and remit the
rest to Eastern Europe via Western Union money-transfer service, which
is untraceable. The agents think they're on to a good thing until
their doors are kicked in at four in the morning and they find
themselves arrested, charged with fraud, theft and money laundering
and sentenced to ten years.

globalmoneytransfers.org may, of course, be a highly respected and
legitimate business. I've no idea what they do.

And when the incoming transfers are reversed, leaving the "agent" out of
pocket, and the real victim of the scam.
