My cousin is a mechanical engineer, got contacted today from someone who claimed to be working for the supreme board for international arbitrators (sbia) and ICAC in the Middle East and north Africa region.
She told him he would have to pay $300 in order to get a 1 day course, or workshop, afterwords he would become an international arbitrator for engineering issues related to his field. Full sized images here and here
My cousin and I think this is a scam, and their website is bad and there's no mention about SBIA anywhere, no results on google, no social media presence. I would like to ask you about it though, have you ever heard about it? Is this a scam?
I think they are copycatting this http://www.incodir.org/, not only that, I hope you could read arabic, on the first image, it says in parentheses
which also works in the organization I mentioned, I'm going to try to contact her somehow, either she's being impersonated in which case I'll see if we can press charges, otherwise she's part of the scam, I hope not.
I tried contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, the email didn't get delivered to report the case, well then I must conclude that they too are a part of the scam sadly, the rabbit hole goes deep.
