List Of Fraudulent Schemers/Persons Advertising!

TriniEquip

FRAUD SCHEMERS NAMES AND FURTHER DETAILS: 

TriniEuip has received emails from members of the public, seeking clarification on a number of

business propositions and offers on behalf of the company. Do not respond to unsolicited business propositions offers from people or e-mail addresses you do not know or trust.

Do not disclose your personal or financial details to anyone you do not know or trust or on a website you do not trust.  Should you have disclosed this information to somebody you do not know or trust or to a website you do not trust consider reporting the incident to your local law enforcement.

·Be on the lookout for suspicious signs – e.g.  E-mail, requests for money,fake website ect.

In case you receive any companies or individuals claiming to represent TriniEquip, we kindly ask to inform us at this email address: enquiries@triniequip.com.

How can I spot a phishing/Fake website?

You may be able to tell a website isn’t genuine because:

  • the website’s address is slightly different to the genuine company’s
  • there are spelling and grammatical errors on the page
  • the site isn’t secure. A genuinely secure web address where you’re being asked to send sensitive personal information should always start: https://. Websites that start http:// aren’t as secure.
  • the padlock for secure sites isn’t in the website browser, at the top or bottom of the page.

Padlock security

Genuine websites that ask for personal information show a padlock either at the top or the bottom of the web page. If you’re not sure whether a site is genuine, click on the padlock and check the security certificate, which tells you if the site is authentic.

Only valid certificates issued by approved authorities are trustworthy.  If you’re still unsure, check if the name on the certificate matches the name of the company behind the website.

Mr. Thomas,

I am very much feeling this is not for real as my brother went looking for your company yesterday and he came up with nothing as you never answered your number and he had no way of finding you other than your address which came up empty there is no company at the address called Kingdom Trucks or even UK Trucks? He went to a company in the vicinity called Advanced Truck Components there and they do not know you either as well as some other companies around there and they don’t know of you? Please get in touch so we can sort this? He even called a number that was on a sign saying Kingdom Plant Limited and a woman answered and told him she has nothing to do with your company and is not related to your company either?

Regards

You would not have received any calls from him as suddenly your number has changed why you initially gave me 0115 888 2793 which is also on the proforma invoice why and now the number displayed on your e-mail is 0115 888 0818?

Hi Gxxxxxx, I am forwarding your email to Mxxxxx. He has a similar issue with sending a payment to a UK Bank Account and after speaking to him, we realise that something is wrong somewhere and it may be the same person doing these transactions.

THE FOLLOWING IS THE RESPONSE THE VICTIMS GOT FROM THE TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO HIGH COMMISSION IN THE UK WHICH DID NOT HELP MUCH BUT IT JUST GOES TO SHOW NOT MUCH CAN BE DONE IN SITUATIONS LIKE THIS AFTER THE FACT! I HOPE PEOPLE WOULD LEARN A LESSON AS THIS IS COSTLY BUSINESS FOR THE VICTIMS.

Subject: Results of Investigation of Trade Matter
Sent: Jun 27, 2012 11:53 AM

Dear Mr. Jxxxxxxxxxxx,

Please see details of our investigation and findings below. We have reported the matter to the Metropolitan Police who have issued the Reference Number CHS7772. The police have advised that they will contact you within 24 hours on your mobile number (as it was the only contact number available).

We are however unable to take this matter further as Gibraltar is not one of the countries accredited to the Trinidad and Tobago High Commission, London. In this regard, I have copied this email to the Second Secretary at the Brussels High Commission.
Tracey, I have attached all the correspondence received from Mr. Jxxxxxxxxxx regarding this matter for your information.

As indicated in my conversation with you, we recommend that you contact your bank immediately to request a recall of the monies. We contacted Barclays Bank (from the details provided) and they confirmed that this account is current and active but could not release the name on the account.

Investigation and Findings:

We looked into your query and noted the following:
1.      The address listed for the company does not exist
2.      The address listed for the MasterCard was different from the Company’s address

The following actions were taken:
1.      Contacted the local police station in Devon (01392 420 320) and spoke to PC xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx who confirmed that there was no  Brunel Way in Devon. She also confirmed that the company does not exist in Devon. She promised to contact us with any information found on the director.
2.      Contacted Mastercard to inquire whether a stop could be placed on the card until the matter was sorted. The representative, Gabriel, advised that the card was issued by the following bank, based in Gibraltar:

General Corporate Communications: IDT Financial Services Limited PO Box 1374 1 Montarik Building 3 Bedlam Court Gibraltar Tel: +350 200 79616 Fax: +350 200 79639 info@idtfinance.com

He suggested that this bank be contacted urgently and requested to place the relevant stops on the card. Please contact the High Commission in Brussels for possible assistance with this matter.

I am sorry we could not be of assistance in the return of the monies but hope that the information provided helps you in your efforts to retrieve same.

Kind Regards,

Kxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
