419 Scam – "Zennith Cargo Company / Eccu Investment & Trust Ltd."

"Zennith Cargo Company / Eccu Investment & Trust Ltd." are fake companies used in a fake lottery scam in the Netherlands. It is a 419 scam that, depending on the country of residence of the victim, can also involve a check fraud scam.

This scam is likely to be connected to the same gang as the "Mr. Walter Campbell / Rolls-Royce Heritage Trust Charity Foundation" scam, which also involved check fraud and used the same Western Union payment instructions.

Send us any replies by "claims agents", especially money demands and payment instructions, we will publish them here.

Please forward copies of fraud emails to the abuse department of the webmail address listed as the contact email for the "claims agent" and ask for the address to be suspended because it is used in a 419 fraud (see 419 FAQ).
