      Scam Involving Yohannes Riyadi and/or Wilfredo Saurin
      November 2007

      The Federal Reserve is aware of a fraudulent scam involving individuals using the names Yohannes Riyadi and/or Wilfredo Saurin, or persons claiming to be representatives of these two men. In a typical version of this scam, Mr. Riyadi and/or his delegates falsely claim that they have on deposit with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York several U.S. Treasury Checks issued to Mr. Riyadi amounting to billions of dollars.

      The Federal Reserve Bank of New York has been contacted by several brokers and financial institutions worldwide inquiring about the validity of this fraudulent account documentation, which is being offered as collateral for lines of credit or other types of asset based financing. The fraudulent scheme includes multiple documents which purport to have the signatures of various Federal Reserve officials, including Chairman Ben Bernanke.

      In some instances, individuals involved in this fraudulent scheme claim to have met with Federal Reserve officials and claim to have verified that the alleged account is in order. We have also learned that the fraud may include the purchase of certain documents by the introducing brokers.

      If you have information regarding this fraud please contact either Robert Amenta, Special Investigator at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, or Erik Rosenblatt, Senior Special Agent at the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

      MM, this is beyond simple emails to one's junk folder.

      There are records at HSBC, and other banks in the UK confirming the deposits.

      Something is fishy and you should know better than to 'forget it' if the US govt says 'forget it'.

      The rest of posters fraid like hell that they 'disappear' if they comment

      Funny enough, Falcs, this is one occasion where I tend to go with the US govt.

      The whole thing does have a smell of a Nigerian 419 scam - an unimaginable amount of money, an implausable story. The only thing that is missing is that the Lord did not mention whether he was asked for his bank account number.

      !5 trillion is slightly more than the GDP of the USA or the EU. To think that this amount of money could have belonged to one man. This is about a hundred times what Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Carlos Slim are worth together.

      See? I typed all this and my puter didn't shut down.
