Aegis Capital Group


This has now taken over from it seems both Lux Capital and United Cargo as the fraud of choice out of Hong Kong. The others have stopped and now Aegis is coming in strong.

It seems though that the real Aegis Capital Group has been quick off the mark and has a message about the fraud on their web site.

Let's hope that the Hong Kong authorities get a grip on this one.

I recieved a email today about from them (Aegis) and my gut told me that it was a scam... what made me suspicious was the fact the email body was a image and link to a non .com .org website that was down...

Never hesitate to do research...

It seems that the Hong Kong authorities have stepped in quickly.

That's a very good analysis there of what happened. I'm pleased that I managed to find all of the fakes myself too. (So my trap works.)

I would advise everybody to read the bobbear link.

What happens when you give your info on that website?

Never give your information to a website that you don't know is absoutely kosher.

If you give your information to a crooks website, they'll know that you are correct. If you give your bank account details, which is what they are after, you'll find it quickly emptied.

In fact never type your bank details into any web site.

Credit cards are different, as in that case the credit card company has to prove you spent the money to get paid. In a bank account, you have to prove you didn't.
