Gold Fraud

As one of the fastest growing Gold companies in Europe and the Worlds largest Gold fraud /scam resource we get 80 to 100 offers a DAY. We’ve had every gold scam tried on us time and time again. We have lists of over twenty thousand 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.

  1. The buyer Mohammed Rasheed Ahmed from Marjan Bullion, a company based in Dubai, is a big SCAMMER, be aware guys! Do not waste time with him and his fraudulent company


    ‘Dave’ David Webster and his son Jake Webster from 79th Group / Seventy Ninth Group.
    Well known scammers in the UK and UAE. Like the old palm oil scams, they say they have mining licenses, take peoples money and then spend it on property in the UK via one of their many companies.
    They have ZERO experience in trading gold or any commodities and zero experience in mining in Guinea, just some pictures of other peoples gold and some very basic mining machinery, from a trip to Africa.
    Ask to see their passport stamps and see how long they have spent in West Africa….feel free to ask who they have done gold trading with and do your due dill! Ask to see their exploitation/industrial mining licenses, and verify with the ministry of mines (easy to do), also ask for videos and pictures of them involved in mining and commodity trading, they will make many excuses, because they don’t have any. Scamming is a family business. DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY!!

  3. Has anyone heard of Emirate Cargo & Safe LTD? 1 Sheikh Zayed Road, Trade CentreTrade Centre 1- Dubai United Arab Emirates Are they a legitimate gold shipping company?

      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.

  40. 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.

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

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

  43. Please tell me who knows these companies and how reliable are ASA NATURAL RESOURCE GROUP LTD Mr HASSAN HABASI MUSA NAIROBI KENYA and another company from Nairobi. Ituri Gold Mines Union

  44. 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.

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

  46. Anybody has dealt with Collins Sichula in Zambia?
    He promotes Tanganyikan Commerce Ltd. and Kavumbo Metals Ltd.

    1. Very bad experience with the Frovio company owner Michal Tjituka before as regards Diamond concessions in Namibia. Suggest you do not deal with Frovio.

    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.

      1. Hi Apepic, I looked for both HOLLMEC AND CHARLES HOLLAND on this site and did not find, can you share info?

  47. 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!!!

    and they claimed to have smuggled it to kenya for better control where mwesigye connected me with his fellow scam called Fahad a kenyan national his number +254756739056 and i fly to kenya to meet fahad and fahad has company called Mosaic Jadar international Ltd and i paid Fahad Usd64000 fo UN Non criminality certificate and Ownership Certificate

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

    1. Uganda they work with a company called Balak global minerals Limited, they use fake websites which’s
      avoid these people at all cost!! we have suffered a loss of over 120.000USD we would not want anyone else to suffer the same.

  49. Is there any one knows —- Paul M Martin ( British )—- PMSM limited – RC 07837895—— is this scam company ?

    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.
