As many other banks, our corporate name "BANK OF AFRICA" is used from time to time by ill-intentioned people in the search of partner who can help them transfer so-called important funds, precious values or in the payment of commercial transactions.
We would like to inform you that such practices of cyber-criminality also known as "SCAM 419" or "Advance Fraud 419" aims at obtaining from eventual victims advances on commissions, supposedly intended for clearance of formalities enabling the achievement of fictitious transactions. For more information on those practices, we would recommend you to make a research on (Google, Yahoo or others) the names above mentioned or take a look at the sites recommended below.
We also noted sometimes the creation of fictitious internet sites intended to direct wrongfully eventual victims.
BANK OF AFRICA :
