Additional information about this scam:
Robocall from a male bot called “Henry” asking if your a business and want funding, they can “help”. BLAH BLAH BLAH, asks if you can also hear “him” okay - [Answer: YES, and answer YES again when prompted whether you’d like funding]. Bot asks Have you been in business for at least 6 months or more?" [Answer: YES] then asks “Does the business make at least $120,000 a year or more?” [Answer: YES]. Bot will then ask if you want to speak to a “funding advisor” [Answer: YES].
The funding advisor, in question, will ask typical information about your company, such as company name, what type of company are you and what industry your non-existent company is based in as well as company address and if you have a recent 6 month bank statement that shows you deposit at least $1,000 a month.
I told her my company was keysRus llc in the retail industry, selling everyones keys “kinda like a locksmith” (although I don’t think she heard me properly hahaha). She asked how much funding I roughly needed which I said was anywhere between $500k-$1m and she asked what my funding was going to be used for which I told her BUSINESS EXPANSION And ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT PURCHASES. She asked for my company address which I stalled and said I was looking for the documents which has the “head office” address etc, luckily she moved on pretty quickly. She asked for an email address, which she then sent me a “clixsign” document to sign, which I did - see pictures below. They will also ask what your annual business revenue yearly is which I said $300,000. You’ll receive a email from clixsign and a personal email from the scammer. The scammer will want you to email your bank statement privately to them. I asked her to call me back in the hour @ half past to stall. So I’ll update this post soon. If someone can edit me one to send, that’ll be amazing!
Turns out if you click onto the email to try “sign” it again, you’ll be presented with this:
If you click to view the document, you’ll be presented with the form in a webpage (html/pdf) and if you scroll down you’ll see an extra part attached known as the “Clixsign Completition Certificate” which will contain the alleged senders ip/sending entity details and YOUR IP / USER AGENT details. Thankfully I was using a VPN.
@OfclyGoodenough What do you know/can find about these bunch? Would be appreciated with whatever information is publicly available.
