I wonder if it even exist, there sure are a lot of people living there. You can add Hellen Kelly/Thomas and Daniel Bruce. Then there's the band manager for Oyewo Band Group, Oyewo Funsho A. at 34 Bath & Tywitt Avenue, Rosebank, Johannesburg, South Africa wire transfer of $3300 US with security Answer being Hellen & Daniel. The "band manager" called this morning after we contacted the supposed issuing company, so we already knew the chack was bad. The area code on the phone number was in Aruba. Since we caught it before we were actually "victims" the ploice wouldn't even take a report. They told me these scams are huge. I will still continue to do international business, but when my gut says something is wrong, I'll listen.

Some red flags in this case: No fax or credit cards to deal with contracts or deposits and we were supposedly dealing with an auditor for Coca-Cola? Grammar and use of English language not on par with claimed status. The check we received was for $3800, not the agreed upon $100 deposits. The quality of printing on the check was poor. There was a desperate push to get the money wired to the band. All of a sudden there was a sea of red flags. We got lucky, but I will be more careful from now on. I just deleted a email yesterday from a very inarticulate person from Africa wanting me to help them invest 5 million $, it screamed fraud but these people were a bit smoother.

Just be careful, friends
