Travel site fraud in Kuala Lumpur

Сообщение MarkGiles » Ср ноя 14, 2018 3:24 am

Over 250 web sites cut from 3 templates run a travel fraud.

The sites all acknowledge that they are a unique travel agency based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, giving a small range of addresses and phone numbers.

The addresses and phone numbers are real, and phones are answered when you call.

What distinguishes these sites from genuine travel sites? They do not have any online booking facilities - they are performing no commerce.

Most sites advertise a 16th Anniversary promotion but there is no way to use this offer online.

However, they have amassed a large list of real names and addresses, which they "spam" in a novel way. They post real mail to these names and addresses. The mail comprises a glossy brochure, and two "Scratch Cards". When the victim scratches the cards, one is a losing card, but the other congratulates you on winning a prize, such as US$200,000.00 This is just like most scams in the Lottery / Prizewinner category.

When the victim contacts the company, the fraud begins. The victim is asked for photo-ID (passport, driver's licence etc). Before the money transfer can take place, there are tax payments and processing fees. That constitutes loss 1 and loss 2. Following that, should they ask for your bank details to transfer the winnings, they will have your personal details as well as your photo-ID to enable any kind of bank fraud.

These domains should be listed as scams with privacy risks.

The scratch cards that come with this fraud, lists some sponsors. One of those is the Royal Selangor in Malaysia.
Here is a request for confirmation:
I received a brochure and a competition entry form from The Dazzling
Holiday, Menara HLA 3/F, 304, Jalan Kia Peng, Kuala Lumpur, Phone +6011
- 3108 6813.
Their web site is at http://thedazzlingholiday.com

The brochure lists Royal Selangor as a special sponsor and depicts your
purple company logo.
Please verify this sponsorship, and advise if this is a legitimate company.

They sent two "Scratch" cards, one of which awarded a prize of US$
200,000.00

So before I provide them with my contact details, proof of Identity, and
bank details, I would like to check their credentials.
Here is their immediate response:
Greetings from Royal Selangor and thank you for bringing this to our attention.

We've recently received multiple complains and confirmation regarding some scratch and win card offered by multiple travel agency and an investigation is currently ongoing at the moment regarding this.

Be assured that Royal Selangor is not involved in any scratch and win activities nor in any way involved in any of these activities. Kindly ignore all these scratch and win contests and DO NOT ever provide any form of information to them.

Thank you very much.

Regards,
Sean Kwan
