The company Casual B.V. offers all kinds of sex and partnership meeting places in the digital world. Chats and real meetings, as promised by this construct with thousands of names.
But there is a catch: fake profiles are created, and an invoice is generated with these profiles. One of our readers asked us to take a closer look at the creation of profiles.
The only thing that is frivolous is the subscription that the casual user tries to force by creating false profiles. Whole armies of lawyers are already dealing with the problem. It seems that the Dutch authorities are a bit sluggish when it comes to closing down this conglomerate.
The platforms where you can end your loneliness even reach Australia. Fake profiles are created there. It seems that address databases are bought, and then a profile is created, as in the case of our reader who could no longer resist the letters. Every hour, he received an email telling him how much his profile was loved by the other profiles. A playground for romance scammers and others who want to prey on the unsuspecting.
If you look at the forums and the reviews, you will see that these are fake profiles being offered for sale. For 39.00 euros a month, just like on the other sites owned by this internet octopus. Lightly dressed ladies offer themselves for sale in an outdated image of women. Chats and other opportunities are highly praised and then staged.
The octopus is said to belong to a certain Petronella Gerritsen, who operates from Frans Erensstraat 14 A in Venlo. One cannot help but get the impression that a juggernaut has been created here in an apparent legal vacuum, which is confirmed by the countless violations of data protection.
If you wanted to stop the letters, you could only cancel the 'contract' that Fremdgehen69.com had made for a false profile. Only the contract in the subscription trap cannot be cancelled against one's will, then another involuntary profile is created, and the game starts all over again.
Notifying support is just as pointless as trying to find a way to move the constant emails to the spam filter.
After receiving hundreds of emails, our reader filed a complaint against the company for identity theft.
Flexible response - one year after the Alina programme
This time "in the robe" of apple love
The ripper is on his way, so everyone is warned. Brutal scammers like Alina or Rebecca are once again on the timelines of the big social media providers. The Shame of Africa is marching again. It's all about money, but the romance scammers are willing to do everything in their power to make it happen. This time with a fake Brazilian mermaid for lonely men while the lockdown. But that's not all. They show that there's still room for improvement in terms of badness.
The e-mail address of the pomme love already appeared in the program Alinas. Stolen pictures, stolen identities and "Morane is hungry", this is how the African gangs roamed the social networks. Brutal is still the friendliest word that points to the perpetrators.
Last summer, we told the story of Veith, who still hasn't recovered from Alina in terms of health. In the meantime, the public prosecutor's office is investigating the perpetrators, and fraud is only a marginal phenomenon in these proceedings. With their messages, they send links containing phishing programs, through which they later access the data of their victims.
Today the brutal blackmailers from Africa's Ivory Coast operate under other identities, which they obtained after the collapse of the program Alina, to continue the profitable business. So Cornelius wrote to us yesterday, that the successors of Alina also contacted him. Immediately the unknown ones wanted his Whatsapp to start with the scammer terror.
Attention: For women, greedy Africans have set up the Andreas programme. When Cornelius wrote that he did not know an Andreas, he got the flexible answer: I am a woman, my name is Andrea. Thanks a lot. If you don't mind that I can leave you my WhatsApp number, we can write to each other more easily. As in the case of Alina, the real goal was to get immediate access to the WhatsApp to be able to exercise control. For this purpose, the alleged Andrea gave her number, which is a fake. +33 7 56 84 51 05- plus the signature of the local time, which indicates the time difference.
The perpetrator group operates via France and the Ivory Coast, Belgium and the Congo. Further traces lead to Morocco. In Germany, too, the group continues to expand. Unfortunately with a brutality that makes even experienced investigators freeze their blood in their veins. Those who do not pay are blackmailed. The trail to the head leads into the Congo, where he should not feel too safe.
It is one of the dirtiest groups of scammers. Victims of the group were so demoralized that they thought about suicide when the perpetrators tried their hand at them. However, numerous measures are being taken in the background to stop the perpetrators.
Until that happens, everyone should be warned to get involved with these people.
It is essential: Never give the perpetrators personal data, no matter what they promise or how they threaten. In case of threats, contact the police immediately.
The inventiveness of the industrious scribes, traffickers, smugglers, con artists, seems to know no bounds.
Now we are opening a whole blog called scammer.news, which we are attaching to thekasaantimes.de and thekasaantimes.news to make the stories of these people public before this scammer mafia can make a profit or commit damage. The blog scammer.news is kept in English, as the scam is mostly sent in English. We now merge several blogs from the past into one. Since 2005 we have collected the stories of the scammers.
Apart from the madness that was communicated to many victims there, Sabina Joneh was one of the most successful programs of the scammers of Côte d’Ivoire, until the program Alina came. These are programs that the stations buy. Like at a market. The stories are written professionally and are adapted for each country, like Nigeria and Ghana, Ivory Coast, Rwanda etc. Often you run into the same programmes, but with different actors, from all the good Lord countries. Yes, the business of God is always started to explain the purity of the mob.
We publish the original mails, because, we do not want to alter any text.
From time to time, we will comment on the stories.
But the best stories of years, we have collected, we will bring in a book.
And suddenly another despot from Africa came to life. With so much money, you can also sometimes rise from the dead. Anytime.
A lawyer named Idi Amin Dada recently wrote about an incredible amount of money, diamonds and real estate in a safe in Zurich, Switzerland, which he urgently needed to dissolve before a new law came into force in Switzerland. In the past, he freely admitted, he would have been a prizefighter and then gone into politics for a few years. Through the military, he would have enjoyed a good education. Which, remained in the dark. Probably a torturer and dictator.
A few days later, an alleged official of Interpol in Bern, who happened to have just arrested the “evil Idi Amin Dada”, wrote that he had confiscated a suitcase full of money and other effects, which he now wanted to share with us as a brother and sister. The suitcase must have been very, very heavy, as he demanded that we contribute to the costs of any transport. He groaned in numerous e-mails about his lousy salary, but he gave a hint to go to the nearest Western Union office to transfer 1,500 US$ to him from there. Later, the amount halved when we did not react after days. Then he threatened to take legal action against us.
He remarked that he could also inform his colleagues in Germany; after all, we would have agreed to the deal. Nobody had written such a thing.
After two months he gave up wholly unnerved.
For all the comedy in the stories of these people, one quickly forgets: these fraudsters pose a danger of financial loss and even physical damage. Usually, the lively exchange begins with an unsolicited e-mail communication from an unknown person who then pretends to be someone else or pretends to be a minister of a country that does not exist at all.
There one should donate for the liberation struggle. In return, one receives worthless shares in a fabulous gold mine, for example, from Indiana Jones or his widow after the victory over the terrible despot. Some of you may feel a little bit pissed at the assembled celebrities. The sometimes hilarious stories amused us.
Especially during the Christmas season, the friends crawled out of their holes and played with the loneliness of many people in our time.
Apart from that, these contemporaries have it in for the money from the rich industrial nations and nothing else, but already for visas to the Schengen area.
To get you in the mood, here is the mail of a particularly long-lived specimen, which has sent out hundreds of thousands of mails under different names for years. The structure of the story is always the same: poor girl captured by evil rebels during the war, in many different countries, she was looking for her Prince Charming. Probably one day she will be kissed awake by the Senegalese police…
Many Europeans, Americans and Asians fell for it.
Called Escape&Visa / Scam

I hope everything is good over there in your country. If it is, God is almighty. My name is Miss Sabinah Jonah, of the Mende tribe in BUAKE, Cote d’Ivoire. I am 22 years old. My father was the King of our tribe until his death, and also one of the richest, very reputable businessmen (a cocoa trader and supplier of agricultural materials) who did business in Abidjan, the capital of Côte d’Ivoire. It is sad to say that my father was poisoned by his business partners; the murderer was my uncle’s younger brother.
The family plotted and poisoned him with the accusation that he was a big sponsor and supported the restoration of the democratically elected president LAURENT GBAGBO, the former president of Côte d’Ivoire. Before my father’s death, in February 2007 in a private hospital, in Abidjan, he secretly called me to his bed and told me that he had deposited the sum of five million, five hundred thousand US dollars (USD $ 5,500,000) in a bank in Abidjan. He used my name because I was the only child, as the following beneficiary, of the fund.
Now I have the deposit receipt and all important documents that the bank received from my late father when he deposited the money. I believe that the people who murdered my father are seriously after me. My father’s younger brother succeeded in claiming my late father’s landownership. I’ve been hiding all this because he’s still looking for me seriously. He believed according to our culture, because I am a woman, that I know exactly about my father’s landowners, because I am married by the family to another man. I really do not know what to do. This is because I have suffered a lot of setbacks. I flee from one place to another. Now I live in a remote village with a pastor of the Apostolic Church and his family. The death of my father actually brought sorrow into my life.
I am interested in your support. I beg you to help me to transfer this money to your country as soon as possible so that I can come to your country and continue my education there while you look for a very good deal for both of us so that the money will bring enough profit.
Now allow me to ask you these few questions: –
can you honestly and gladly support me as your sister / daughter?
can I trust you completely?
what percentage of the total amount will be fair for you after the money is in your country?
can you arrange for me to come to your country to further my education and secure a residence permit in your country for me?
Please consider this and contact me as soon as possible.
Miss Sabina Joneh"
Apart from the fact that there is neither the clergyman, he is a contact person in London, who only makes sure that the money comes in via WU, nor is there, of course, a deposit, only the intention to receive money and visas. One could almost suspect that smugglers and scammers got together in order to earn money on the visas.
The deposit papers are fake. But not the passports of the girls who are queuing up to come to Europe.
Note: The press department of the Senegalese embassy in the Federal Republic of Germany did not want to comment, just as the Senegalese government did not answer any e-mail. Neither did the cited telephone company.

A new completely brainless story of a certain John Suger circulates through the social networks and is sent unsolicited by e-mail as a letter of compensation from a powerful sounding organization.
Nothing about this email is true, do not answer it.
Do not disclose your personal data.
The data would be used to facilitate further crimes. If in doubt, contact the police. This is the original mail from the probable West-African scammer:
This is to acquaint you on the outcome of our meeting with U.N International Financial Investigation Unit and the Association of Better Business Bureau to compensate scam victims upon due verification, we have jointly approved US$1.5m (One million, Five hundred thousand United States Dollars) for every confirmed victim. Your E-mail address was generated through the computer ballot system as one of the selected victim to receive this compensation.
However, adequate arrangement has been put in place and approved to transfer your fund through a telegraphic wire transfer in anywhere in the world.
Finally; for the purpose of proper verification of your claims, it is imperative that you furnish us with the following of your details necessary to process release/remittance of your payment:
Your Residential Address:
Country of Origin :
Direct Mobile Phone Number:
Copy of you Identity Card:
You are expected to forward the above information to the Authorized Payment Center.
We refer to yesterday's first article about the IMF Scam. We wanted to know what was going on and wrote the perpetrators under a legend. The perpetrator group had contacted us yesterday concerning the IMF. Today, the notable drawback came, with which the perpetrators earn money.
Some tax and some fee, which of course only exists in the plans of the perpetrators. Neither the actual amount nor the person exists.
A subculture has formed in the West African states, which nauseatingly charges Europeans and Americans, Asians and Latino's. Indeed, about God and how capable the perpetrators are. They are dangerous criminals, who, if you pass on your data to them, are taking the mischief. This goes so far as to manipulate or falsify the portals of Western Union. Western Union and MoneyGram should reconsider their involvement in Africa, or the EU, the USA and Latin America, as well as Asia, should ban the two payment service providers.
You run the risk that with your name, your data, new crimes even trafficking human beings, drug trafficking and money laundering are pursued.
The initiators stop at nothing. They do not care about human life at all. They exploit the information to the point of excess and forge official documents and blackmail wherever possible. In Benin, they seem to see things differently. The police do not care about such excesses. The same applies to Congo, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Ghana and increasingly for Côte d'Ivoire. They seem to live on scamming. Corona increases the action of the scammers.
What is new, however, is that the portals of Western Union are forged. Apparently you are redirected to a fake site of Western Union.
I am still waiting for the payment information. If possible, do send the payment receipt for record purposes.
Due to the limited time for this transaction and other security reasons, I will advise you not to disclose this transaction to a third party until your total fund is transferred to you. This security measure is because the amount involved is a huge amount of money, to avoid much hitches.
Attached is a photo of my family. I will like to know if you will be able to send the fee through WORLD REMIT."
The forgery became obvious and the perpetrators did not want Western Union to be questioned about the truth. They quickly wanted money via World Remit, another financial service provider. This group of perpetrators attracted attention in connection with the Love Scam of the "Alina programme" and the subsequent money laundering. It is clear that the operations of this group in West Africa extend as far as the Congo.
The identity papers of Western Union employees.
Even the passport is a complete forgery.
Western Union has done too little to control the West African mobsters. Profit is the key, not the normal course of events. Whether African employees of Western Union are involved in the scam cannot be confirmed at present but it is most likely.
Here the second mail:
"Dear esteemed customer,
Firstly, we want to assure you that this is not one of the fraud/scam messages you receives promising you for millions of dollars. Be rest assured that this is your compensation because your email address is on the scam victim's list.
After receiving your message, we instantly sent the first payment of $5,000 to your given name. As I was trying to email you the payment information for you to go and pick up the payment in your country, I got a call from the Western Union Headquarters in Colorado, United States, and they brought to my attention that the $5,000 we sent to you has been CANCELLED and the remaining $995,000.00 has been placed on hold by them (THE WESTERN UNION HEADQUARTERS) through our network.
I asked them why, and they said that the Inland Revenue Tax Authority here in Benin Republic reported to them that we are transferring such amount of money without the Non-Resident Tax Clearance Certificate of the beneficiary.
So, after I cut off the conversation with the head office, I called the Inland Revenue Tax Authority here to know how the clearance could be obtained from them and the cost of obtaining it. They said that it will cost $88 only to obtain the certificate and it will take only 1 – 2 hours for the clearance certificate to be ready.
I later called the head office back and asked them if there is any other thing to do after the clearance is obtained, and they assured me that once the clearance certificate is forwarded to them, they will instantly release the funds without any delay.
The information of the payment we made today is enclosed.
Sender's name-----------------Mark James
Country--------------------------- Benin republic
For self-confirmation, you can track this payment online with Western Union official website, copy this link and paste on your browser https://www.westernunion.com/global-service/track-transferafter filling the information, click Continue. Note; if you track this payment, the status will show you that the payment has been Cancelled. Note that you can NEVER be able to pick up this payment in your country until the fund is released by the head office.
Due to the urgency this required, we tried to deduct the fee from your fund but it was unsuccessful because your fund is currently on hold. However, you are advised to go ahead and send the Non Resident Tax Clearance fee of $880 via MONEY GRAM or WESTERN UNION so that we will assist you and obtain the certificate from the office. Here is the information you will use to send the $880.
Receiver name;.......SERAPHIN AKODJINOU
Country;............ Benin republic
Test question; Trust
Do send us the payment information as soon as you made the payment. If you can send the fee today, you will pick up the first payment and we will send you another $5,000 today as the clearance certificate is the only thing holding the transfer. Note: you have to try and send the clearance fee as a matter of urgency because the head office will confiscate your fund and divert it to the government treasury if you did not comply urgently.
Remember, we were instructed by the IMF to return any unclaimed payment file after 72 hours if the beneficiary did not comply to claim his/her funds. So, if you will send the fee but you can not send it within 72 hours, let us know so that we will report to the IMF that you are complying so that they will not ask for the return of your own payment files.
Meanwhile, we will be waiting for the fee of $880 and under 30 minutes to 1 hour of confirming the payment, you will receive the first payment slip in your inbox.

Lots of fish in the internet sea - a worldwide network of crooks
The e-mail itself came from a Chilean provider, who allegedly works on Reunion via the address more than 10.000 km away, in order to then supply the ghost address in Benin. The address does not belong to Western Union, of course, but to a scammer from West Africa. The phone number is a fake to be able to give a number at WhatsApp.
None of this is true, but only serves the initiator to get the transfer costs for the money in advance. A bad story, too.
Don't give out any data, it would be stored on scammers mail lists. This would lead to more crimes being committed in your name.
Dump it in the digital bin.

RE: RECENT SCAM VICTIM'S COMPENSATION FROM THE I.M.F BENIN
Complement of the season to you and your beloved family. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is compensating all the recent scam victims and your email address was found in the scam victim's list. This Western Union® office has been mandated by the IMF to transfer your compensation to you via Western Union® Money Transfer.
However, we have successfully concluded all the arrangements to effect your payment through Western Union® Money Transfer. We have scheduled your payment to be completed by sending you $5,000 twice daily until the total sum of $1,000,000.00 is completely transferred to you.
Notwithstanding, we can not be able to send the payment with your email address alone, thereby we need your information as to where we will be sending the funds, such as;

Director Western Union® Money Transfer,
Head Office Benin Republic.

If you received this email by error, please delete it from your mail box and notify us immediately for correction. The disclosure of this email to a third party is highly prohibited. Thanks for your
A few days ago, we found one of the below published mails in our box. We wrote "HOAX" back to stop further mailings. It was immediately clear to us that scammers were on the way again. It is the story of the terminally ill woman who wants to give away her fortune to someone else as a last good deed.
Where the pictures of the sick woman were stolen, we do not know. We publish the images to warn everyone. It is a crude and evil mixture of actual events and a story script on the bazaar for scammers in Nigeria. The attack in Syria happened, although the numbers are entirely exaggerated. The story, including pictures, costs about 200 US$ and a 15% share of the "profit". The scammers are using the international crisis to promote their cause, and the concept of the God-fearing seriously ill is particularly useful. The money in Malaysia does not exist. The danger is that you can't tell whether it is a pure scam or international money laundering in this context. Based on the letter, it can be assumed that it is organized.
Hands off, don't pay any "notary fees, hospital costs or something like this. Do not give anybody your data. The perpetrators would then commit further crimes or blackmail you- even with the threat to curse you if you do not pay.
You should put the mail into the digital garbage can with the numerous other mails, which we publish further down in a selection.

These days, many of these mails arrive in the mailboxes of Internet providers. It is again the attempt of a group of unscrupulous crooks to exploit the Corona crisis. Not without an end in itself, the perpetrators mention the ruler of the White House.
Many readers respect the "President" of the USA. However, you should be careful what you trade with Trump after Atlantic City. Now this writer uses the instruction of Donald Trump, which of course does not exist.
This time even Trump is probably clueless.
Trump's tall tales and fake news make these scams possible at all.
No one in his right mind can overlook the mistakes and contradictions that result from the nonsense.
This payment does not exist, the address as well as the name comes from an identity theft. The number is probably from Google Hangouts and serves the perpetrators as a "serious paint".
Hands off, never transfer address data. The perpetrators would use this information unscrupulously for further scams. Move the mail into the digital trash can.

While others are fighting for survival worldwide, others are making a fake lottery to make a good profit on the Corona crisis
Extremely dissocial elements use the corona crisis to enforce their idea of profit. From Johannesburg comes the last exhibit of an alleged lottery from Norway, which of course does not exist. The scammers want personal data to commit other crimes. What a construction company in the Western Cape is supposed to have to do with the Norwegian lottery is marked in the stars. Even here it is identity theft.

Millions of these emails come into the mailboxes today. The English is extremely bad and the story behind it is crazy.

Rev. ASHII OF FIRST BANK OF NIGERIA PLC
35 Marina P. O. Box 5216,
This letter is written to you in order to change your life from today. I am Rev. ASHII A the Director, International Remittance Department of this Bank,my Boss, Mr. Jacobs Mr.Ajekigbe, the
Managing Director/CEO of this bank is now on compulsory leave and all power have been vested on me to make all international payments.Also, due to reported cases of corrupt practices in
other Nigeria Banks including the Central Bank of Nigeria, the Federal Government has revoked/cancelled all power vested on those banks and has appointed our bank (First Bank of Nigeria) to make all foreign payments.Be informed that the Federal Government have approved the release of part-payment of$7.5M(Seven Millon Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) out of your total funds, which has been in this bank for many years unclaimed because my boss Mr. Jacobs Ajekigbe, elaboration with the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) have refused to tell you the truth on how to claim your fund this is because he has been
using the interest accumulated from your fund every year to enrich himself without your knowledge,I want to help you pull out this fund to your bank account using the easiest and the quickest method, which have not been made known to you before. By this method, you will open a domiciliary account with this bank (First Bank of Nigeria),your fund would be lodged into this domiciliary account and your fund will be paid in directly to any bank of your choice.
After the transfer, you will confirm the fund in your bank account within 5hours the same day.

Without scruples, the African scammer mafia takes advantage of the SARS Covid 19 crisis in the world to make a good profit.
Harold Diamond, whoever the real culprit behind the name is, is such a specimen, with particular human contempt. He's mocking the last of the crisis.
He just wants the best money anyone can give. This issue makes Harold Diamond one of the most reprehensible human beings in the world.
Of course, the WHO is not paying anyone money for the corona crisis. Don't let the African scammers tell you that.
The perpetrators are interested in collecting the costs of transport and the necessary documents in advance. Preferably via Western Union or MoneyGram.
There is no payment from the WHO for Corona.
The perpetrators want to steal data which they then use for other business: human trafficking, narcotics or smuggling.
Throw the emails into the electronic trash bin provided for this purpose.
Here is the mail of the "Risk Manager":
I write to inform you that your ATM MasterCard containing the sum of $750.000.00 United State Dollars has been Approved by WHO/WORLD BANK AUDITORS through their e-mails ballot Promotion with commonwealth COVID-19 eradication program.
You are required to confirm your personal details to avoid wrong delivery of your parcel to your home address.
Your Home Address:
NOTE: The UDDS delivery company is the only Delivery company authorized to deliver your ATM MasterCard by the WHO , and as soon as i receive the above listed information, i will proceed to give you the contact of the UDDS Delivery Company that will deliver your ATM MasterCard to your home address safely.
Thanks and remain bless

Mr David Beardselsy"
Scavenger from West Africa
During this international crisis, some figures feel they have been chosen to put pressure on users of the Internet to put themselves in the limelight.
They are only interested in paying the fee for the delivery of a card that does not exist. Most of the time it's around 200 US$.
A very bad scam is that of the gentleman who pretends to be the director of the FBI and allegedly wants to have a card sent to pay a non-existent debt. The FBI director would certainly not use a google email address to carry out his official duties.
There may be a Mr Wray who heads the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, but not in this context. Mr David Beardsley is merely a decorative attachment. If the FBI should wish to approach you, certainly not in this way. ...others probably through their respective embassies in the country you reside. Forget, when you receive the mail, please check the contents. Put the mail in the digital trashcan. Don't give any information about yourself. The perpetrators, who probably come from West Africa, would use it without mercy.

Suddenly a man appears out of nowhere, who allegedly found Saddam's treasure in Iraq before his death on the gallows. Oh, well.
There are so many variations of this story that you get it over and over again when the scammers write.
Mostly the second email describes how these boxes were carried from one of Hussein's palaces. The crates are said to have been so heavy when they were found that the handles broke off several times when the sergeant had to put them into his car in Baghdad. Everything full of US$ in small notes.
But now he cannot afford the transport from his small salary as a US soldier. Apart from that, if this investment really existed, it would be theft and the soldier would be punished considerably...
My name is Anthony Martinez; I’m a US Army Officer currently on deployment in Iraq. I need your assistant only if you can be trusted in investing $48,000,000.00USD (Fourty Eighty Million Dollars). Please if you don't believe in this kindly delete this message, but if you are interested and has any question towards this, kindly email me back so we can be able to discuss every step towards achieving success on this and also discuss our sharing ratio at the end of this business.
God bless you & America.

This time an attempt by the Nigerian Mafia to portray a kind of serious banker.
The story is ancient and is offered on the market sites for scammers in countless variations. Boxes that are standing around without an owner in a town called somewhere. It has something of a treasure map. Then the bank manager, who of course wants to hand them over to the completely surprised new "business partner".
The crowning glory in this context is the diplomatic baggage. The diplomatic reference number is as wrong as the scribbler who used an email address in Benin.
Do not give any information about yourself or third parties.D o not pay anything-if you have paid, contact your local police station.
