Lord Santos Kabaka (Ikhide Ovbiesu) was the Spanish Head prior to Lord Gaddafi (Oscar Nehi) and the current Head Lord Oba Kosoko (Tayo Olutoryor).
Lord Santos Kabaka uncovers a “grand conspiracy” against him. Dismantles an “illegal” ‘Zonal Congress’. Suspends the Zonal Crier for announcing the aforementioned “illegal” ‘Zonal Congress’. In addition to suspending the former Zonal Butcher who “attacked the elder igbins and resulted in blood spill and police presence”.
Run of the mill problems for any charity.
it has come to my noticer that certain emsils srer being circulasted by the chsirmasn of spanish zone purporting to suspend me as head of the zone and also other frivolous allegastions
accordingly,let me make it clear that according to nbm constitution, in order to suspend or remove an exco member of the zone,there must two third majority votes of the coe which must be supported by snother two third msjority of the zonalcongress,therefore let it be known worlwide that a mere resolution of a corrupt coe like and a corrupt chsirmsn like ju name pomoruyi cannot remove me from office,i am still head of spanish zone until proven otherwise by the zonal congrees which is called for thast purpose.
secondly,last nite ju name omoruyi overstepped his bpounds when he stasrted calling ayes to attend a congreess which he slated for today,let it be known that such congress is illegal as the chairman of council has no righ to summon a zonal congress,this is gross misconduct wiothout doubt,as if that is not enough,ju name omoruyi yesterday gathered groups of ayes at a bar and then a night club which resulted in a violent fight between a former zxonsl butcher ju nasme olitan and an elder ju name igbins,the former butcher attacked the elder igbins and resulted in blood spill and police presence,omoruyi is trying to raise the tension and insecurity in this zoner under my leadership which i will not accept.
All axemen are to ignore the “it” summoned by the chairman as it will amount to an illegal gathering,and actions will be taken against all those who take part in it.
Finally, it is my `pronouncement that from this moment henceforth,ju name omoruyi,lord martin lutherking is hereby suspended for gross misconduct from all nbm activities indefintely.
similarly,the zonal crier ju name edgar who sent out the message for” it “without my instructions and my approval, is hereby suspended indefinitely as this is grand conspiracy and misconduct.
Below is the NBM’s Spanish Zone’s Annual Report Sheet 2018/19 compiled by the Head of the Zone: Tayo Olutoryor.
Interestingly in it’s race to register the NBM in all the countries it operates the Spain Zone have had to lose their name. Registering instead as ‘The Uhuru Foundation’. Why?
“the underlying issues here is that NBM AFRICA is currently under investigation in Spain and as we speak some of our members are still been followed by the police to see the kind of activities we indulge. As we were advised by our lawyers, that UHURU FOUNDATION should be the reason for our gathering till the investigations are called off only then we can change our name to NBM AFRICA”
SPANISH ZONAL ANNUAL REPORT SHEET/ACHIEVEMENTS (JUNE 2018 TO MARCH 2019).
Upon inception, my administration as the Spanish zonal head held a very crucial meeting both with myfellow executives and the council of elders of the zone wherein important issues were raised and the way forward intensively deliberated to ensure that all hands on desk. The highlight of all the issues discussed was the urgent need to register the zone with both the state and local authorities in Spain.
Subsequently, and upon my request as the head, the council was asked to review and audit the financial status of the zone where there were perceived irregularities, though the committee set up for this purpose is yet to finalized all their investigations, some persons indicted so far was made to refund some monies to the zonal wallet and this has since been done. Myself and EXCOS also took upon ourselves the onerous task of bringing together most aggrieved Lords in the zone with issues emanating of the previous administration. This we were able to achieve by visiting abodes highly concentrated by Lords assuring them of a new dawn and the blueprint to take the zone to the next level was also given. We ended up by reviewing issues that led to the suspension of some Lords in the zone, while others were revoked, others were granted amnesty.
BLUE PRINT REVIEW
In reviewing my blueprint for Spanish zone, I will like to buttress that the constant financial demands from the Region and National body has to a large extent hampered my vision for the zone. However, Myself and my team yet have been able to achieve more than 50 percent of my blueprint for the zone. The following are the cardinal points of my blueprints=
RECERTIFICATION AND ACCREDITATION
COLLABORATION WITH SISTER ORGANISATIONS
INTERNAL COOPERATION BOTH WITH THE REGION AND NATIONAL BODY.
ACHIEVEMENTS SO FAR.
From the aforementioned cardinal blueprints, so far we have been able to achieve 70 percent of it while others are still in the making. The zone has been fully registered though not as NBM AFRICA but as UHURU FOUNDATION, this might sound strange but the underlying issues here is that NBM AFRICA is currently under investigation in Spain and as we speak some of our members are still been followed by the police to see the kind of activities we indulge. As we were advised by our lawyers, that UHURU FOUNDATION should be the reason for our gathering till the investigations are called off only then we can change our name to NBM AFRICA and I am glad to say from the last discussion I had with the lawyer the police are getting more convinced by the day that we have no skeleton in our cupboard. We sincerely hope before the end of my administration things will be done properly as regard our trade mark. Above all,it is worthy to note that we cannot continue to gather illegally in a lawful country like Spain, hence the importance of the registration.
This is one area where I would say we have scored 100 percent so far. We can recall that barely 3 months into this administration, the cold hands of death took the life of one of my forum coordination (LORD NELSON MANDELA)who was on a visit to Nigeria and never returned. The zone responded quickly and ensured that he was given a befitted burial and also making sure that those he left behind were properly taken care of. Finally the sum of two million, two hundred thousand Naira (2.2 Million) was spent. Subsequently, other members of the zone have equally benefitted from the zonal welfare package either by way of child birth or marriage celebrations. Consequently, a total number of ten (10) Lords have benefited with a whooping sum of two thousand, four hundred and fifty euros (2.450 euros).
3. RECERTIFICATION AND ACCREDITATION
Ever since the announcement of the NBM National ID card scheme, Spanish zone has also embarked on recertification and accreditation of her members with the view of screening those ready and constant members of the zone. Meanwhile,there has been a cry out to all and sundry about the very need and importance of the recertification exercise. As admonished by the council, the period of grace to take part in the awesome exercise has been extended to the middle of this year 2019 after which all doors will be closed and those that ignored or refused to take part will be published as Non-members of Spanish zone and will cease to enjoy any rights or privilege whatsoever.
4. COLLABORATION WITH OTHER SISTER ORGANISATIONS.
Though we have not really done enough in this area, but as we speak, plans are already going on to partner and collaborate with other sister organizations which has been mapped out for seminars and others for visitations and subsequently making donations as much as possible.
5. INTERNAL COOPERATION BOTH WITH THE REGION AND NATIONAL BODY.
So far Spanish zone has been able to cooperate with the EU region and the National body at large. Spanish zonal members have also participated in seminars and inter-talk meetings organized by the region. In the areas of finance,we have also ensure we meet our financial obligations to both the Region and the National body. We have paid part sum for the Italian case, we have also paid our Regional dues, while Spanish zone was among the first seven (7) zones to pay for this year’s National Convention. Not to forget the fact that our National elders have also made adequate representation of Spanish zone at NCOE meetings.
OTHER MISCELLEANOUS ACHIEVEMENTS.
Apart from the above achievements, we have also made other giant achievements. We have organized a compulsory Monthly LEADERSHIP TRAINING AND ORIENTATION CLASS for ALL Spanish Lords which will run for a period of one year. Opening of a zonal account and website are currently in process, hopefully they will be included in our subsequent annual report.
The constant financial burden from both the Region and National body has been our biggest challenge. After meeting these financial demands, we barely have something to deal, with regards to our plans and blueprints for the zone. Monies raised from dues are never enough, as we now rely on individual voluntarily donations/contributions in order to meet up our financial obligations. Another heavy challenge is the fact that Lords no longer have the interest of the MOVEMENT at heart. They lack the zeal to attend inter-talk and most times they prefer to sit at home doing nothing flawlessly. Because of their massive numbers, compelling them with a suspension notice has been seen by many not to be the best option.
Both regions and National body should look for an alternative source for funds thereby reducing the heavy reliance and dependence on zones for funds, zones also have their own projects which are highly financially demanding.
2. There should be a lasting solution to the problems of those unwilling Lords in every zone in order to ensure every axeman is enticed to fellowship with a zone.
3. The National body should organized a scheme, it could be educational or business oriented that will improve the life of the grassroot axeman who happens to be the bedrock of NBM WORLDWIDE.
Finally, my special thanks goes to my executives whom have been very supportive all the way and also to my council of elders for been my guide. I will not forget to appreciate the good work of my indefatigable Regional head (LORD MARCUS GARVEY)and the National head NBM WORLDWIDE (LORD MOKITI MOZUZU) may KOROFO continue to increase your wisdom as you guide NBM to the next level.
The European Zones are feeling the pinch financially. They are unable to fulfill their financial obligations to the National Body.
They spent all their party money on lawyers for those arrested in Italy. So Felix Kupa has banned them from partying. To which ‘Head, European Region’ protests.
THE NATIONAL HEAD, NBM OF AFRICA WORLDWIDE.
PASSIONATE APPEAL ON THE RECENT EMBARGO PLACED ON BOOGIES AS IT AFFECTS EUROPEAN REGION.
Sequel to the pronouncement made from your office, barring all zones worldwide that are yet to pay the (500k) Amagba project from celebrating their annual boogie.
Consequently, as the RH of EU Region, I immediately summoned an emergency meeting via our WhatsApp group where we have all heads, NE’s and Zonal chairmen to discuss how best we can remedy the situation.
Sir, after much deliberations merciful head, we have come to appeal to your conscience based on the following reasons;
1. That the European Region right from Adams have always paid every financial obligations to the National body without hesitation.
2. That this year from the start has been financially incurring, from Convention/National dues to European dues to the Italian case to the hosting of the historic first NCOE in diaspora. All these financial commitments we have fulfilled in this same year running.
3. That our brothers who were recently released from incarceration are in dire need of our financial assistance to be able to get on their feet after a long period wasted and as a result, we just took a decision few days ago to levy ourselves so as to be able to come to their rescue before the yultide.
4. That there’s no emergency bail out funds to remedy this situation as at now as all monies collected for boogie/seminar in the various zones has been disbursed to effect the plans made. This notice has obviously caught us unaware.
OUR PRAYERS. Sir, with due respect and regard to your most reverend office, I am making a passionate plea on behalf of the leaders of the European Region for you to reconsider your stand by issuing a waiver to European Region based on the reasons conspicuously highlighted above.
This has been financially challenging for the Region, we shall in the earliest time possible in the coming year live up to our billing concerning the project in question. We understand what the completion of this project means to this incumbent administration and we are doing our very best to cooperate with you.
I am making this passionate appeal in good fate on behalf of my Region having in mind that we shall be greeted with a positive response and in no distant time.
Long live NBM of Africa! Long live European Region!!!
Yours in service Lord Marcus Mosiah Garvey Head, European Region.
“We are collaborating with the police… We give the police a lot of intelligence information but after arresting them the police don’t disclose how they got this information. The police will then go to the press and tell them they are from a cult group: Neo Black Movement”
“But we are the ones who release these informations to the police”
From 2017 in the aftermath of the dozen or so NBM members arrested in Italy.A member spearheads the defence of the members arrested in Italy. Seems that the name NBM/Black Axe is the primary focus of that defence.
DETAILED REPORT OF MY MEETING WITH THE PROSPECTIVE LEGAL FIRM (BUCCADUTRI ASSOCIATE LAWYERS/ADVOCATE & SOLICITORS ) IN PALERMO ITALY.
Consequent upon the decision reached by the committee set up by the European regional head (Jn Ologbo) to immediately tackle the Italian issue, for which I was a member I volunteered to meet with the prospective lawyers in Italy whom the national Oc legal has been in correspondence with before now. The meeting was scheduled for Friday the 13th of January 2017.
The meeting started at about 16:50 pm Italian time, in attendance was myself, Mr. Buccadutri (Head of the legal firm) and his team of criminal lawyers, Ms. Caterina Saeli and Mr. Giuseppe Avarello respectively.
As the meeting kicked off, they inquired and needed me to tell them about NBM, who we are? what we do? What we represent? the size of our members? our aims and objectives etc? Responding, in summary, I told everything they want to know about NBM and finally took them to our website for them to catch a glimpse of all they need to know.
I also confirmed to them that NBM is yet to be registered in Italy but we have some members there whom we were projecting to register NBM in Italy and they are one of those arrested.
Subsequently, I told them categorically what NBM wants from them which is to;
(1). Represent NBM in the ongoing case in Italy where two or more of her members are being held in detention.
(2). Prove to the Italian government and police that NBM is not “BLACK AXE” and has no affiliation with them.
(3). NBM is not a criminal organisation and has never indulge in any criminal activity and as such has continued to disassociate with criminals.
(4). One cannot shy away from the fact that some persons or members might have committed a crime under the disguise of NBM and if such exist that person should be made to face the full wrath of the law without recourse to NBM.
(5). To prove to the Italian authorities that Jn Sixco and Jn Festus are members of NBM and not Black axe
(6). And finally in the course of advocating for those we agreed to be our members, if there exist any provable evidence that they were involved in the crime levelled against them, NBM will not align with them any longer and they will be left alone to face prosecution in the hands of the Italian authorities.
(7). They should find out if there has been any previous judgement indicting Nbm as an organisation or any of her members in Italy, but this they said is not possible to trace without given reference or names of persons involved or a case number.
HAVING SAID ALL THESE, THEY REQUESTED THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTS;
(i). Power of attorney to be signed by the National head of NBM authorising them to take up case in defence of our interest.
(ii). Registration certificate. To prove that we are registered in Nigeria.
(iii). Documents proving our interest in Italy.
(iv). Documents proving that Jn Sixco and Jn Festus are indeed members of NBM.
(v). Documents proving that Jn Sixco and Jn Festus are officially representing Nbm in Italy.
(vi). Full names and occupational status of the National head.
(vii). Full names and occupational status of those they are to highlight their names as NBM members that were arrested in Italy.
(viii). Proofs of how NBM has been in involved in charity and other activities in every part of the world where it was carried out.
(viiii). A publication or document showing that NBM is not Black axe and a document containing our mission statement.
(x). In addition, as a strategy, they would appreciate if we can come out publicly in form of an interview session to denounce BLACK AXE on any of the leading news TV station sighting the legal battle in Italy, it will go along way to mount pressure on the trial judge on this case in Italy. They promised also to involve those newspapers and TV stations whom they work with in Italy to issue publications that NBM is not Black axe.
THEY STATED WHAT THEY CAN DO FOR NBM IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE CASE;
(a). Demand compensation from Italian government for denting the image of NBM.
(b). Help to register NBM in Italy and any other European countries so requested.
(c). Stand in as NBM lawyers in the European region.
MY FINDINGS IN PALERMO;
While in Palermo I decided to ask one or two persons living in Palermo what led to the massive arrest by police in Italy and I was told the following transpired on various occasions;
That there was a big fight 2 years ago in Palermo involving some lords who came from another city which resulted in casualties.
Also after that, two other fights involving some lords took place also on different occasions in Palermo with severe injuries recorded.
All these fights and casualties were reported to the police by the victims who told the police that there is a gang or mafia group called “BLACK AXE” being responsible for all these criminal acts. This was how the police started their initial investigation.
Now, there were three pple in police custody after the first fight 2 years ago and one of the three lords named EGHOSA in exchange for his freedom with a ten years sentence, and out of revenge is now co-operating with the Italian police. He gave out names and implicated all the other pple that were arrested including Jn Sixco and Jn Festus. Information also has it that some of those arrested have now accepted that they are members of Black axe but they don’t do crimes.
Beside all these, it is worthy to note that the name “NBM” is not involved in the current Italian saga but rather “BLACK AXE neither has NBM been accused of any act of criminality in Italy.
However, NBM’S intervention in this current saga should be seen solely because it has affected the head and former head of Italian zone in the person of Jn Sixco and Jn Festus whom we all know as genuine members of NBM and are genuinely working in Italy. Based on this, I am making the following recommendations as follows;
(1). That the involvement of Jn Festus and Jn Sixco (Head and former head of Italian zone) is enough reason for NBM to go into this legal battle.
(2). After my meeting with the legal firm in Palermo Italy, I am absolutely convinced that they are competent enough to represent and defend the interest of the Movement in this Italian saga and also NBM in European region at large.
After a call was placed it was discovered that the time to act is now after which it will be impossible to pursue the case as time is no longer on our side, so I am suggesting NBM to go ahead by signing the power of attorney which will be sent to the National Oc legal on Monday the 16th of January 2017.
Though the lawyers didn’t give 100 % guarantee winning the case but it is worth a try because I am optimistic that there is a window of opportunity in this Italian saga that will benefit NBM European region and the diaspora at large.
It is however regrettable that none of the Italian zonal member was available to assist me during this time and meeting in Palermo Italy. The meeting ended at about 19:50 pm.
They finally requested that the national Oc legal should authorise a copy to the European region through me of all future correspondence.
RE: COMMITTEE REPORT ON RESTRUCTURING AND BRINGING BACK ITALY ZONE.
1. Jn Tayo Olutoryor ( Lord Oba Kosoko) (Comtte chairman). 2. Jn Ede Omoregie (Lord Ibn Walata) (Member). 3. Jn Daniel Maurice (Lord Nelson Mandela) (Member). 4. Jn Terry Kakor (Lord Dan Faye) (Member). 5. Jn Ewa (Lord Sundiata Keita) (Member).
As empowered by the European Regional Head, Jn Macjean (Lord Marcus Garvey) we as members of this committee were set up to discuss, analyse and if possible draw out modalities and road map to restructure and reopen ITALY ZONE.
After three (3) consecutive meetings held via WhatsApp, we unanimously agreed that if we are to restructure and restore NBM activities in ITALY ZONE, it MUST be under the following conditions/criterias;
1. That the zone before anything else should be legally registered with the appropriate authority in Italy as (NBM OF AFRICA ITALY ZONE).
2. That those whose names shall appear in the registration documents will be formally screened and verified to be duly blended, gainfully employed and are without any previous or current crime records. A proof of police character certificate will do.
3. That the zone will operate in a SUB ZONAL capacity with close supervision from the European Regional head for a minimum of two (2) years depending on the coordination and conportment of prospective members.
4. A thorough screening and verification process for all prospective leaders and members as in the case of paragraph (1).
5. Prospective leaders and members should also meet up with the following criterias;
i. MUST possess an resident permit. Or Asylum permit. ii. Gainfully employed. iii. Produce an Italian police character certificate. iv. All prospective officers MUST be married. v. Prospective members who cannot provide an Italian police character certificate MUST sign an “UNDERTAKING” that they will be of good character and conduct. vi. That most of the above criterias will form the basis and would be the bedrock of a new BYLAWS which shall be written in conjunction with the CARETAKER COMMITTEE in Italy.
Afterwards, we also unanimously set aside the initial BYLAWS written by the CARETAKER COMMITTEE in ITALY on the basis that it lacked merits as it was obvious that the writer copied it from the NBM Constitution.
After all said and done, we presented all we have agreed upon to the CARETAKER COMMITTEE in Italy as planned, we try to engage them to find a common ground to finalise and marry their own ideas altogether but surprisingly we were greeted with anger and hostility at the meeting which lasted for almost two hours via WhatsApp as it yielded no positive results.
RECOMMENDATIONS. 1. It is obvious that the CARETAKER COMMITTEE members in Italy have their own separate agenda which will not be favorable to that of NBM.
2. Couple of events in Italy most recently shows that the attitude of those presumed members in Italy will in no distant time once again drag the name of the Movement in the mud.
3. It is our intention that a situation where by there’s no enabling environment for NBM activities to foster in Italy, then it will be in the best interest for the National body to take a clear stand by making a publication in any of the print media denouncing the none existence of NBM activities in Italy and as such anyone parading himself as a member should be treated as an impostor and should be prosecuted.
4. Italy still remains a big treat to the existence of NBM in the European region therefore, NBM should tread with utmost caution.

NBM letter template entitled “Aduro Story” (Asylum Story) been used by members in Europe for the purposes of fooling immigration officials into granting them asylum.
Somehow it appears to have worked for at least one NBM member and others are been encouraged to try it. Potentially this will replace the “All my family were murdered because I’m homosexual” template used in the past.

Axa S.A. (styled as AXA) is a French multinational insurance firm headquartered in the 8th arrondissement of Paris that engages in global insurance, investment management, and other financial services.
The Axa Group operates primarily in Western Europe, North America, the India Pacific region, and the Middle East, with a presence also in Africa. Axa is a conglomerate of independently run businesses, operated according to the laws and regulations of many different countries.
The NBM of Africa (aka Neo Black Movement & Black Axe) also operate in the same regions. The Axemen are also a conglomerate of independently run businesses… more accurately ‘criminal enterprises’. Operating however entirely outside and in contravention of the law.
The Black Axe are among the most notorious (cult groups). They emerged in the 1970s and were originally known as the Neo Black Movement. Its founders said the group’s aim was to “liberate” the black race.
But at universities, the group no longer seems to be driven by any political ideology.
Instead, Black Axe members are accused of numerous killings and sexual attacks.
But let’s not forget bucket loads (probably world record breaking levels) of fraud.
So given that on one hand we have AXE men who murder, rape, cheat and steal and on the other hand we have the fine law abiding men and women of AXA… it’s no surprise that the NBM do not post you notifications that you’ve won the lottery telling you that it’s the Axe men writing you.
No, they write as AXA MEN.
I’ve collected together a handful of the many examples of thisranging from present day to as far back as 2007. Collected from a number of Axemen all cooperating together in Italy, Spain, France, UK, India, Nigeria and others.
All the examples share one commonality: they are fraudulent.
They also all follow the same processs.
These members of the NBM write to people (real letters by post) informing them they have won the lottery. In order for the (supposed) winner to be able to claim their prize they first need to send a nominal payment via Western Union to a money mule located in Europe.
Then they are hit with a further much larger payment. Perhaps a (fake) notification from customs asserting the (supposed) winner needs to pay 1% tax on their winning before they can collect it. For a 500,000 lottery win this would incur an advance payment of 5,000.
Then onto much larger payments for various other made up reasons.
The NBM scammers are seen to enlarge the victims winnings when they start getting into paying sizable fractions of the initial quoted winning amount.
In the end the final move will be to tell the victim they have almost lost enough to warrant them been paid what was promised. It’ll just take one last payment, made in person, when they fly and meet the scammers and collect their huge over-sized cheque/check.
The victim told to travel with sizable amounts of money (and often expensive electrical items) in what the NBM call “come and carry” (come to meet the criminal carrying lots of money)
Needless to say no over-sized cheque is issued and should the victim survive that encounter it’s fair to assume they don’t fly home with any of the money or goods they came and carried.
In this example from 2018 the Axe-men are informing the victim (located in France) they have somehow, without entering, won the “UK Lotto”. Notifying them they have purportedly won £215,610 with the possibility of a further £6,000,000up for grabs in another upcoming draw for which they are entered.
Instructing them to contact ‘Mr John Williams’ of “Axa Investment Manager Ltd” by fax or phone.
In addition to this fake UK lottery this collection of NBM members are also running fake Italian, fake French and fake Spanish lotteries.
In the following example. A fake Italian lottery posted to another French victim notifying him of a 515,810 Euro win with the possibility of a further 21.3 million possible. The victim directed to contact ‘Don. Giovanni Martini’ of “AXA Italia S.P.A”
In the next example a fake notification of winning the lottery in Spain. The victim told to contact ‘Don. Romero Rafael’ of “AXA Investment Managers S.A”. The victim informed they can claim their 515,810 Euro winnings by calling or faxing two numbers located in Spain.
In the next example a potential victim is notified of what the fraudsters are claiming to be another 515,810 Euro win. This time on the French lottery. The victim needing to contact ‘Don Edourd Demarie’ of “AXA Protection Financiere”. A French telephone and fax number provide for the victim to make contact.
Another variant been a “global mobile promo award, online sweep-stake international program” where the victim has won 850,000 Euros and needs to contact ‘Don. Maximilliano Rossi’ of “AXA Investment Managers”
Upon receiving their notification and responding….next the victim will be sent forms to complete. The victim summarily submitting their personal and banking details to the criminals.
In the examples below the forms are to be submitted to fake AXA email addresses operated by members of the NBM. Axaitalia@mail.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
The moment that the paperwork is completed by the victim then the requests for advance fee payments begin.
In this first instance a nominal payment of 288 Euros to get the ball rolling in the form of receiving a “tax code”. The payment to be paid to a Spanish bank account owned by a money mule and controlled by member(s) of the NBM.
Next a 322 euro payment as “a transfer charge”….. To be paid to by Western Union to a money mule (whether witting, unwitting or complicit) located in Italy.
A very similar request made below but the money mule located in Madrid, Spain.
Following a nominal payment or two the fraud progresses and larger fees are requested.
A further 2,800 euro in fake bank charges…..
Then the 1% tax payment. In this instance 4,610 euros needing to be paid on a supposed 466,950 euro lottery win. AXA Italia Security Company of course the company that require payment.
Once a victim has been sucked into several payments the chance they stop making payments becomes very slim. They have perhaps paid 288 + 322 + 1800 + 2800 + 4,610 and the psychology created by the fraud dictates to them that it is a no-brainier to pay when asked for an even larger amount.
They would lose all their fees + the amount they have been told they’ve won
So it becomes highly likely that when 25,790 is requested they will pay. In the below example the AXA men are asking for 25,790 Euros but adding another psychological track. They say they themselves are going to pay half of it for the victim.
So the victim only needs to send 12,895 Euros in “management handling fees”.
And this goes on and on.
Larger and larger payments. Often seeing the victim beg, borrow and steal from friends and family to make the payments and in the end losing everything. Money probably been the least of their worries when they are notified they have lost their house, car, savings and their wife/husband has left them.
In the end a victim may be subjected to the NBM’s “Come and Carry” scam or transformed into a money mule.
