Gold Fraud

As one of the fastest growing Gold companies in Europe and the Worlds largest Gold fraud /scam resource we get 10+ offers a DAY. We’ve had every gold scam tried on us time and time again. We have lists of 1000’s of fraudulent companies and individuals, we couldn’t hope to list them all here.

The service we provide is to act as a secure intermediary between buyers and sellers, to transact your deal safely negates all these risks and brings our wealth of knowledge into your deal. The small charge for our services outweighs the risk a thousand times over.

  • We will do a preliminary $99 check on any company or person to determine if they are listed on any of the fraud databases. Just send us the relevant information and you can pay via Paypal using our email address. Contact us now with the information.
  • Should you wish to proceed , then this can be followed by a $999 report. Which will then check out the authenticity of the deal, the validity of any paperwork, do a background check on those involved and ensure your procedures are following safe guidelines.
  • Should they pass these checks then you can proceed to our buyers or sellers pages.

5 Most common types of fraud:

1) The most common is sellers asking you to pay upfront costs. This can be shipping which can be many 1000’s of dollars. You are unlikely to receive your parcel and don’t expect to find much Gold in it if you do. Asking for a ticket to escort the Gold to you (aka free holiday) or asking for a letter of introduction to the business. If a seller wishes to escort the Gold product and needs a letter for customs. Basically using your company to support their visa application, so unless you want to be dragged into a case for illegal immigration, do NOT send the letter.

2) A lot of the larger deals will ask YOU to send proofs. Names of buyers, proof of funds, passport copies etc. Do NOT send anything to anyone who you aren’t 100% sure of. These proofs are then used to run scams in your name, especially passports!

3) More detailed scams will ask for a buyer to create a payment / financial instrument. Some form of bank MT103, SBLC, BG or escrowed funds. These funds are not to be paid out until completion of the deal, giving the buyer security. These CAN be monetised or used as proof of funds to go out and purchase Gold to sell to the buyer. A rapidly growing scam. This can even be done with an MT799.

4) Fake Documentation! With so many gold offers around scammers reuse documentation, photo shopping signatures from one to another, changing dates, etc.

5) The inheritance scam seems to becoming more popular. Example: My father died and left me 40 kilos and I just need so many dollars to release it. These are often backed up by equally corrupt lawyers or advocates in Africa. A variation on this theme is the girlfriend or boyfriend befriending you and then promising to come visit / marry and just needs a few thousand dollars to release gold to sell to cover their trip. Then a bit more and a bit more, etc.

There are many variations on the scams listed and of course every one will claim that they are the real thing and have had problems with fake buyers before and dont want to get caught again.

We have established that for every deal we see 99.9% of ALL deals are fraudulent. Can you afford to lose 999 out of every 1000 deals you do?

FOR SELLERS : There is as high a percentage of fake buyers out there as fake sellers. Buyers using trumped up companies and documents pretending to be large multi billion dollar conglomerates when in truth its a dealer looking to flip the deal using his range of contacts in social networking sites.

The ways to avoid these scams are to thoroughly do your research, ignore anything on a social network site. Check the longevitiy of the company, size, website, directors, previous dealings in the industry, etc. Or alternatively get us to do it for you.

  5. Can someone explain exactly how a payment instrument (SBLC/MT series) is used fraudulently once it’s made available to a scammer? If the instrument is marked as callable only upon delivery / bullion officer inspection / conclusion of contract, how is it possible for it to be defrauded?

  11. Hi anyone has any information on Fregata Shipping partners managed by Ibrahim Jalloh? Sent him $10,000 and he stopped taking my calls and put off his phone.
    Fregata Shipping partner is a scam company.
    Please beware of them!!

  12. Beware of Fregata Shipping partners from Sierra Leone, Freetown. They are a scam company. Scammed me of over $10,000 belonging to my client.
    Phone number; +232 75003174
    Address; No 121 motor Road Freetown

    Whenever it’s Time to send money, he will be available. After I send the money, he will go MIA, stop taking calls and switch off his phone. Barnaby warned me but Mr. Ali Jalloh was soo smart and acted as though he was legit. I don’t want anyone to fall into the same trauma I’m in because I’ve lost everything I’ve ever worked for.
    They’ve sold everything I have and locked me up just to repay my clients money.
    Some of the names on the document are; Mohamed Sesay as managing director.
    Please if you have any information that can help me, please send me an email because it’s been over 2 months since a business he promised will not take up to 2 weeks is lasting.
    Beware of Fregata Shipping partners in Sierra Leone.


    Please share your experience

    1. Lunar Freight is a scam. Take your money and never ship. Always a reason but never perform. works with various agents that participate in the scam with them. Have a “customs officer” that also participates

  14. Hi everyone,

    Have someone heard about Ojowa Group in Kenya ? In touch with them since a while..but feels something is wrong.



    Address : Kisumu
    Avenue: , Kenya

      1. I have the same doubt about Naaduro Gold Company. I got an offer from them, but their website is down and I am not able to get any information about the Company or Mr. Joshua Magnus Nicol.

  15. is a fake shipping company registered only 46 days ago. They work with so called miners from Kono Community who claim to have gold dust. They offer good deals and i got scammed for smelting charges and shipment that never came. Their website is currently off because i have reported them but they sometimes put the website on. They say they have offices worldwide but are not even registered in Sierra Leone. The case has currently been reported to the CID and Police in Sierra Leone and investigation is pending. They have not availed themselves to police invites to date.

  16. I’d any feedback on AFA-CONSULTATS under Mr Reyad Habboub Bakarat
    They seem to represent huge bullion reserves in Mexico and Switzerland

  17. Does anyone knw Pascal Emmanuel Adjovi owner of premier precious metals mining company of Lome Togo.

  19. Having checked out the company Fregata Shipping Partners of Sierra Leone, run by Ibrahim Jalloh, it does not exist, the fake website only appeared this year. It is a common scam using false tracking information to extort money from buyers pretending their shipments are rerouted or held up.

  20. Is there anyone with information on a gold seller in Ghana called IDDRISU VENTURES GHANA LIMITED? Are they legit?

    1. Yes been discussing a deal , he seems to be acting on behalf of Zambian mines but difficult to conduct correct due dilligence so most likely a scam.

    2. This is a company run by Charles Holland who also ran Hollmec Mining. Both are mentioned on this sight. A Mr Charles Holland is also connected to another Zambian company called Octus Minerals but claims to be the cousin of the Charles Holland of Hollmec.

  21. My boyfriend and I got mixed up in a gold dust scam in Nigeria. His friend, Henderson, says it is a quick way to make money. I spent $6k of my own money was to receive $55k. The money I received was fraudulent. My account frozen, had to file with the FBI. Henderson told me the company was Kim’s gold dust in the USA. It isn’t. They have nothing to with it. Huge scam!!!

  22. we were scammed by a group of organised criminals in uganda,we were introduced to Radjab and Desire, their mobile numbers +25678990090 and desire +243970872488 they claimed to be Rwandais soldiers who’s in mission in Congo they claim they have Gold from congo without documents.they will ask you to fly to Africa to inspect their Gold and to help them with payment for the taxes, they will tell you that will be stored in a safe and you will never have access to it because they let as fake customs,radjab then introduced us to Mwesigye a ugandan national, his company is Consolidated service LTD locate at BMk house kampala uganda, mobile number +256750530923, who was the clearing agent, we first paid Radjab 2500$ to ship golds from congo to kampala then we paid USD30,000 for export documents and Mwesigye changed the product while it was with their “customs”

Mwesigye he didn’t sent original golds in kenya what they showed in kenya was just fake gold.

    1. Afternoon , Yes this is a scam.
      Mr Martin can be called on his UK cell phone to confirm.
      Google search the company name PMSM Limited in UK for details.

    2. Look out for his aliases Jack Roy, Corinna Muir, Greg Hall. Why the hell would anyone ask for blocked funds or an SBLC for FOB gold?

      And if you think Paul’s good, he has stiff competition in Robert Cohen.

      1. 1. Is there any one knows Mr. Joel Gaetan Fylla slown —- company name: general biz service — Brazzaville Congo?

        2. Any one knows — Jack Merc Du-Pont — passport: 40159263( SWaziland)——Octus Minerals Limited ?—— phone number —-00260762686529
