In an employment scam, a scammer can open an account in a Fake Bank such as Wheatlandb.com. Every month you can check your balance and see it go up.
The only problem is that you will never be able to make a withdrawal as the balance shown does not repesent actual money.
Put simply, a Scam Bank website is a professional looking website with basic functionality which allows users to log in.
Once you register for an account, the scammer can input any balance (eg $1,000,000,000.00) which you can see when you log in.
If you wish to transfer money out of the account, you will be required to pay a multitude of fees (Anti Terrorisim fee, Money Laundering fee etc etc).
You will be required to pay these “Fees” with ACTUAL money from your ACTUAL bank account.
Online Shopping and Auctions Fraud involves a wide variety of methods, including Bogus websites like Wheatlandb.com.
These websites, whilst looking legitimate, are in fact controlled by the fraudster.
Auction fraud use Fraud websites a lot. After winning a bid on an item on an auction site, the scammer will demand that you open an account in your name and deposit the funds in there. You will then be requested by the “Bank” to transfer the money to an actual bank account. The scammer will then update the fake balance on the Scam bank website to show the amount you have transfered.
The Fake Banking websites shown on here are different in purpose to a standard Phishing website which attempts to impersonate YOUR bank in order to steal your login information to your accounts.
Phishing websites are quickly shut down as they email thousands of people at the same time.
They normally last from a couple of hours to days after the initial phishing email.
The websites we focus on are targeted towards individuals who the scammer believes is capable of paying the high fees.
Unless they are shut down, they can last for several years.
