The biggest money-laundering scam in the world may be going away, thanks to a new global anti-scam strategy, which involves warning the public when it comes to fraudsters.
In 2016, a new scamster set up a website called Brazen Group and offered people $100 in cash, with the option to deposit a smaller amount of money.
If they did, they would receive a $20 cash bonus, with a chance of receiving more in the future.
But after posting the link to their scammer-free site, people were shocked to discover that it was a scam.
Instead, they were offered $100 back for a deposit of $10,000, with no guarantees that the money would ever be returned.
The scammer, dubbed “The Scammer” in the UK, would offer to send people cash, which they would then deposit into a virtual wallet.
The scammers would then threaten to delete the website after a couple of weeks if they didn’t pay up.
The money could then be deposited into the wallet, but if it was ever returned, the scammers could delete the wallet and send it back to the scammed person.
The fraudster would then claim the money was withdrawn by mistake, but would never give proof of that.
The “Scammer’s” website was set up in late 2016, after the UK’s financial regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority, said that a “large number” of scams had been uncovered in the past year.
In April, the FSA issued a warning to online wallet providers and payment processors to stop the scam, warning that it may put users at risk.
“If you’re one of the many who’ve received a fraudulent £100 cash bonus in the post, you’ve probably heard about it,” it said.
“So, if you do receive money from the scammer via a fraudulent wallet, make sure you notify the fraudster, and seek legal advice.””

Scammers have also set up websites to help them sell “virtual wallets” which are supposed to hold a person’s cash.
These virtual wallets are designed to make it harder for people with weak or faulty credit to get money back.
If you do get money out of the scamster’s wallet, and are concerned that your money is being taken, you can report the scam to the UK Financial Conduct Commission by calling 0800 044 786 or visiting the commission’s website.
“This is a really important issue,” says the Financial Services Authority.

“Scammers may be using the latest technology, and they might have an expert behind them, who may have been trained in fraud detection and mitigation.
But there’s always a risk of getting scammed in the first place.”
But if you’ve received money from an online scam, you should always be suspicious of the person behind the site.
“What if they’re using fake names, or using different addresses to scam you?” he says.
“If you see that the scambaest person is the person you’re actually dealing with, then it’s best to report that to them.”
If the scam is still going on, you’re better off contacting the bank, and calling the company that offers the service to get the scam sorted.
“You can contact the bank and say: ‘I’m concerned that my money’s gone, but I think I have the right to return it.'”
But that won’t be enough.
You’re still dealing with the scummy person, so you need to go to the bank to get it returned.
