    Scam involving the names of Citibank Ukraine and US Securities & Exchange Commission

    We would like to report a scam--wondered if anyone has reported one from Ukraine recently? This is the latest one, cleverly using the couple, Gillian & Adrian Bayford who won the Lottery.

    We were really scammed over $8,000.00+USD; as soon as we declined to send more money--they have stopped calling or sending us an mail!

    We didn't know, until today what has been happening--we were so surprised at what we read on the website!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    This is the chain of emails we got from them:

    From: JSCB CitiBank Ukraine <>
    To: (our email address)
    Sent: Friday, February 22, 2013 8:28 AM
    Subject: Citibank Ukraine, (CURRENCY CONVERSION FEE NEEDED)

    JSCB Citibank Ukraine
    16G Dymytrova Street, Kyiv 03150, Ukraine

    Tel: +380634785686

    Dear Client:

    (our name).

    I am writing to inform you that we have credited your operational bank account today with your total funds, 1,500,000.00 GBP which was donated to you by the Richest Euro Millions Lottery winners, Adrian Bayford. However, we received an automated response from your bank, Bank of Guam stating that the transfer of your donated funds did not go through because the funds were sent in British pounds sterling (GBP) and your account is in US Dollar (USD).

    I am writing to inform you that Citibank Ukraine cannot credit your account while these funds are still in British Pounds(GBP) and as a result of this, we need to convert your total funds from British Pounds (GBP) to US Dollar (USD) but you will be responsible for the 'UKRAINE CURRENCY CONVERSION FEE' of $2,200.00 USD which is also a refundable deposit which must be refunded to you by our bank as soon as we receive a notification from you that your funds have reflected in your bank account in Guam.

    We have already made this conversion and the total funds which would be credited to your bank account is $2,354,427.26 USD only. Citibank Ukraine is very sorry for the inconvenience this might cause you and your family, but I assure you that we are doing our best to finalize this transaction but it all depends on you once more and for the very last time.

    I advise that you go ahead and pay for Ukraine conversion fee so that we can complete the crediting of your account with your total funds in USD today and it will reflect within 6Hours, after verification of payment. Thank you for your time and cooperation.


    MEANS OF PAYMENT: Western Union Money Transfer

    NAME OF RECEIVER: Ezema Luke

    PAYOUT AMOUNT: $2,200.00USD

    ADDRESS: 16G Dymytrova Street, Kyiv 03150, Ukraine.
    Country: Ukraine

    Yours in service,

    Fred Pablo (Mr.)

    Chief Accounting Officer(Local/Foreign)

    JSCB Citibank Ukraine

    Then this email, a day after:

    ----- Forwarded Message -----
    From: United States Securities and Exchange Commission <>
    To: our email address
    Sent: Saturday, February 23, 2013 7:36 AM

    Welcome to Us Securities and Exchange Commission. My name is Mr Jefferson Becks.

    I am writing to officially inform you that our office have received your valid source of fund certificate, The United States Securities and Exchange Commission has a regulatory and supervisory responsibility over banks that operates within the territory of the United States and its Unincorporated territories of the United States, as this stipulates monitoring banks that are members of the Us finance system, the international banking facilities in the U.S, the foreign activities of member banks and the U.S. activities of foreign-owned banks.

    The Us SEC also helps to ensure that banks act in the public's interest by helping to develop federal laws governing consumer and citizen credit. Examples are the Truth in Lending Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, Anti-Terrorism Act and the Truth in Savings Act . In short, United States Security and Exchange Commission acts as the watch-dog for all banking activities within the U.S. and abroad.

    The United States Securities and Exchange Commission provide services to financial institutions here in the United States in the same way that regular banks provide services to individuals. This helps to assure the safety and efficiency of the nation's payments system. For example, when you cash a check or and Unincorporated territories of the United States. have money electronically transferred exceeding $500,000.00 USD, there is a good chance that the United States Security and Exchange Commission will monitor the transfer of the money from the international bank to your own local bank here in the Guam which is the case here.

    I am writing to further confirm that all documents which would facilitate the swift crediting of your total funds to your bank account in Guam Bank are in our office and we are the only office that has the authority to permit your bank to credit your total funds which amounts to $2,328,241.57 USD to your bank account.

    All things being said, before your funds can finally be allowed to go into your bank account, the United States States Securities and Exchange Commission would like you to instruct Mr & Mrs Gillian Adrian Bayford, the legitimate donors of these funds to direct their attorney/legal representatives to send us a faxed copy of the 'Ukraine Anti Terrorism Certificate' which would certify that these funds that are coming from Ukraine will not be in any way used to sponsor or fund terrorism in the United States.

    These strict measures are taken by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission(SEC) when huge amount of money are being sent into the United States and it Unincorporated territories of the United State and also to help us monitor money laundry, and terrorist funding organizations and sponsors.

    Note: That this document is highly Important, there is no way we can permit your funds to reflect in your account if this document is not presented.

    I sincerely value your trust in the Us SEC and I look forward to hearing from you again.

    Mr Jefferson Becks
    United States Securities and Exchange Commission
    650 EAST 12TH ST
    NEW YORK, NY 10009.
