It is definitely a scam and I would appreciate if you would contact us immediately in the hopes that we can still catch this group before they duck out of sight.
Could you email us at so that we can possibly catch these people. They gave me an IBN which is an international banking number for an account in England at Barclay's Bank. I have tried contacting Barclay's to get more info or to have them look into the owners of that account but have not had any result yet.
Perhaps with more requests they might look into it and possibly get the UK fraud people involved. It would appear that they are russian people running the scam and the fund could possibly be held if enough evidence is gathered quickly enough.

I'm wondering if the scammers are Destin and Holly, or somebody who calls himself Destin and Holly.

I recommend that you do *NOT* contact these people, and certainly do not share any personal information with them.

If they do have account information that genuinely belongs to scammers, it should be reported to law enforcement. It's not an enterprise to be undertaken by civilians and certainly not on AIRForums.

I would agree. Luckily you did not send the scammers any money, so your part in this is done. The new members I would say need to contact law enforcement if they have lost money. Unfortunately there's nothing anyone here can do to help. These scammers work internationally, and are almost impossible to trace and catch.
