Ahmed Benyahtu

Postby chiron34 » Tue Jul 02, 2013 1:59 pm

Does anyone know, or had dealings with:

Ahmed Benyahtu
Managing Director
Benyahtu Holdings
Benyahtu Investments
Kuala Lumpur
Malaysia.

If so, I would be pleased to learn of your experience.

I am a solo consultant helping companies to raise equity for business expansion purposes. I just received an unsolicited approach from Ahmed Benyahtu that said, in part: I 'm a financial consultant / private investor located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I want to investigate the possibility and preferential Conditions/gains of investing some of my available funds into your company/projects as a foreign partner as loan/investment with-in $100million -$1billion...for 3-5% Interest rate (Not Fixed), term's also can be reset,We are seeking the attention of investors, project owners and general business facilitators on a 3.5% interest rate per annum on long term investment projects that can generate up to 10% ROI within the period.

'The email was not couched in good English or punctuation. not that that is an indicator of anything in particular. What concerns me is that a name and company check on Google, LinkedIn and Facebook drew blanks each time.

Any advice given will be appreciated.

I strongly suggest you do a little much needed due diligence research on the web under 419 emails and Nigerian Scam emails, you'll find lots, and then find another line of work.
The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.

That is an indicator of something in particular.

Anyone, be it person or corporation, with that much capital to invest, would want to put the best face possible on their operation. And if they truly have that much, why wouldn't they have hired someone who could write English well enough to create a sense of confidence in their target audience.

If their motive is something else, they won't care how they present themselves. And not finding any registration information is another fact that should send you running the other way.

As mentioned by notorial dissent, the most common examples are Nigerian 419 scams.

Those with "$100million -$1billion" to invest rarely initiate negotiations by emailing complete strangers.

Rarely???? How about never ever. This just reads too much like a classic 419 scam from start to finish for it to be anything else.

I had $100 million - $1 billion and I would frequently initiate investment negotiations with complete strangers.

Of course, that may be the reason I no longer have $100 million to $1 billion.

Thank you all for confirming my own views. I just needed your confirmation that my feelings were correct.
