Truffe da Hong Kong?

Avete presente le "truffe nigeriane"? Cambia lo schema, ma non la sostanza: basta con i figli di presidenti e le eredità milionarie, ora a muoversi sono sedicenti CEO di multinazionali con sede ad Hong Kong.
La proposta di "collaborazione" arriva via email ed è allettante: il mittente spiega che è il CEO o il presidente di un'azienda siderurgica con sede ad Hong Kong e che i suoi clienti in giro per il mondo lo pagano in ritardo.
Così offre al destinatario -- dando garanzie di sicurezza del tipo "you're in safe hands", "browse our website" ecc. -- di improvvisarsi intermediario, ricevere i pagamenti dai clienti e inoltrare alla sua azienda i pagamenti. Il compenso per il lavoro di intermediazione è il 10% su ogni pagamento inoltrato. Nel frattempo vengono richiesti dati personali (indirizzo, telefono, azienda per cui si lavora).
Invitante, non c'è che dire. Peccato che con grande porbabilità sia una truffa. Ecco perché:
  1. il mittente e sedicente CEO o il presidente scrive da un account di Yahoo. Perché non usa un account aziendale, dal momento che offre un lavoro in qualità di membro di un'azienda?
  2. Da quando il CEO o il presidente di un'azienda si occupano personalmente di recupero crediti?
  3. i destinatari (come il sottoscritto) sono contattati senza alcun criterio di selezione né viene richiesta alcuna competenza "professionale". Dareste l'incarico di intermediario ad un perfetto sconosciuto?
  4. sulla base di quali informazioni si può supporre che un cliente, che non vuole pagare un fornitore, paghi invece un intermediario anonimo senza proferire parola?
  5. a quanto ne so, almeno in Italia, prendere soldi (e supponiamo tanti, visto che si tratta di un'azienda siderurgica) da X e inoltrarli sul conto di Y ad Hong Kong, non è il massimo della legalità, specie se ci si appoggia al proprio conto corrente.
Ecco i testi (uguali nella sostanza) delle due email ricevute tra ieri e oggi:

Se andate sull'indirizzo web indicato in calce, un sito esiste davvero. Ma il mittente delle email potrebbe aver semplicemente sottratto l'identità di questo sig. Chen (il Rossi cinese) per darsi credibilit.
Per curiosità ho risposto alla prima mail, semplicemente indicando la mia età e dando un numero di telefono cellulare.
Ecco la loro risposta:

Truffe da Hong Kong (o da chissadove)? Probabilmente sì, ma non voglio saltare a conclusioni affrettate.
Non voglio diffamare nessuno, ma credo che manchino criteri di sicrezza, credibilità e affidabilità per definire tali email serie e legali proposte di collaborazione.
Vediamo cosa succederà nei prossimi giorni.

Aggiornamento.

Ho appena ricevuto la terza email con la medesima richiesta, questa volta da un'azienda tessile di Hong Kong. Ecco il testo:
TSANG TEXTILE COMPANY(TTC)

this job offer will be on a part time basis as it comes once in a while and

E' la conferma che si tratta di un nuovo vestito per una vecchia truffa.
Speriamo solo che gli utenti della rete non ci caschino. In Italia il rischio dovrebbe essere basso, se non altro per la scarsa conoscenza della lingua inglese.

Buongiorno caro Giuseppe

e` un piacere leggere tutte queste informazioni. penso proprio siano utili per il consumatore e soprattutto e` un bell'esempio quello della truffa. Cosi` la gente evitera` di fare errori simili a quest. Io vivo a Londra e di truffe qua se ne vedono di tutte i colori anche piu` che a Napoli. Io sono originario di un paesino chiamato Chiaravalle nelle marche. Stavo facendo una ricerca sul nostro cognome ed e` apparsa la tua pagina . Io mi chiamo Fabio Piersantelli il mio Email e` fabio23pf@hotmail.com, se sapessi qualche informazione a proposito del nostro cognome, sarei felice di saperla. Un sincero saluto e buona fortuna

Non è una truffa alla nigeriana, è una proposta di collaborazione per il riciclaggio di denaro sporco (magari ottenuto tramite phishing).

Se accetti il lavoro, ti danno davvero il 10% o quel che è, ma poi la polizia arresta te e loro la fanno franca perché tu hai mandato loro il denaro in maniera anonima (tipo con Western Union).

Ecco un esempio (ma ce ne sono tanti altri sui siti anti-phishing).
