ART Escrow Scam 300 233 SOS Team
ART Escrow Scam.
We received notification from an investor in Westway Holdings Ltd that he had been approached to pay money to the ART Escrow scam.
He was asked to pay a £3,000 upfront fee to release funds which the man claimed were being held in escrow.  This is a standard follow-on-fraud aimed at victims of scams.
We looked into it and found that the FCA had picked up on this scam in early May.  SEE LINK HERE.  The FCA has confirmed that the scam company is pretending to be a legitimate UK company of the same name and that the UK company has nothing to do with it.
The bank details given by the scammers for the £3,000 payment were:
Account Name:  Aisha Adam
Sort Code: 23-05-80
Account Number:  23723026
The intended victim was able to confirm that he recognised the scammers voice from other calls he had received in the past relating to other follow-on-fraud attempts.
