I was asked to assist with the recovery of cash from a vault in Amsterdam. The cash was owned by an American Steven Troops who said he wanted the cash to be used to set up a kids charity because he was dying from cancer. Cash in a vault owned by Securrency in Amsterdam. I agreed to do this providing I could inspect the cash first before paying 10,000 Euro in storage fees. The parties agreed that this would be ok. On arriving in Amsterdam I was advised that the 10,000 Euros now had to be paid before inspecting the cash. I asked the Securrency manager for a copy of his passport. On checking with the authorities found out the passport was counterfeit. I refused to do this and terminated the deal. Wasted my time and money to travel. They will be trying to get others to fall for this scam.

The fake domain has no website attached to it - legitimate businesses have websites, they do not hide behind email only domains.
