Black Dollar – Black Money Scam

While this particular scam is usually referred to black dollar scam, actually any worldwide currency can be used for the act. The victim somehow has been involved into believing they can get rich quick through actual money laundering. Victims are conned to believe they literally can wash money. The con artists can be very charismatic, intelligent and persuasive individuals who search for foreign victims with a promise they can get rich quick. Don’t underestimate the skills and the charisma of these scammers! While it may appear rather stupid that anyone could fall for such a scheme, you would have to see such a person in action and witness the almost hypnotic power behind these lying eyes.

Unsuspecting, the victims are being presented with a suitcase full of black paper in the size of real money. Scammers will tell this money is painted black to get past the airport scanners or being refused by the government and as such now painted black. Mixed in this suitcase are a few real bank notes, which are painted with a black substance. The suitcase is shown to the victim. The criminal, appearing as if choosing the black dollar randomly, while knowing exactly where he hid the few real painter black notes, picks the bank note and pours it into a “secret chemical substance” and thus making the black paint go away from the real money.

The victim then is being told that this whole suitcase can be washed with this “expensive substance”. A huge potential return on investment and greed opens the wallets of the victims, who pay large sums, usually tens of thousands of dollars for this supposed secret chemical liquid. After the substance has been bought by the victim, the criminal will give instructions for the use of the chemical remover and all of these instructions will be made to buy scammer a little time. Either that you are supposed to place the substance into a refrigerator for 96 hours… or after you have mixed all the ingredients, they have to stand still a particular amount of time. Of course after you realized you are washing black paper with water and an aspirine in it, it is already too late.

Tips for recognition:

  • The texture of real bank notes and paper is different
  • Background of the real bank note may be visible through the black coat or paint if exposed to light while other black papers remain black

    I just been approached with this scam, 2009 nov 24 in EU Hungary, nam is michael. The story was unfolding, many people involved with fraud, the story was that the US goverment transports money this way, to make sure nobody can steal it :)

    the money is first coated with clear glue,preferably paper glue and it is then left to dry…step 2: paint the bank note with iodine purchasable at any drug store without prescription…step 3:hold the iodined note over a fan to dry and as it dries it will turn black…..

    nexxt….pack these bank notes along with paper cut out in the same shape as the real money into a suitcase…and show it to an unsuspecting ,moneyhungry mugu(moo-Goo)… clean it u just need ascorbic acid tablets (vitamin C) mixed with water,otherwise known as the expensive chemical cleaner……people beware….it is scam…

  14. jaxern Says:

    This is real. I just recently found out that my own brother fell for such a scheme and lost $90,000. He was duped by two African men. They were still contacting him until he confessed to me about his situation and I put a stop to that. I can’t understand how he ended up like that; I mean he’s an educated professional in his field and yet failed to use common sense. If it is too good to be true, it is. Why would a stranger want to give you money? I would suspect even if a stranger gave me any amount of money. I’m naturally suspicious of Africans (from Africa). Sorry, but that’s how I feel.

    Same thing happened to my cousin.he’s left with apparently £80000 black money. The 2 black guys said they need as much cash as possible to put in between 2/3 black notes. So my cousin got all of his savings out around £17000 and apparently they wrapped the money along with £80000 and mixed it with “special solution”. EVANS did u manage to remove the ‘black’ on them notes u have??

  18. Timothy Says:

They rapped my R13000 with other so called genuine bank notes, they sprayed a chemical which turned my money into a completely dark useless papers, they then demanded a R4800 to clean it,which i refused to pay. How do i remove this chemical from my money.

    Listen these guys are now travelling around Europe, they have a really cute variation on this scam. They show you the notes, all black and the same size as a 50 Euro note. Next they give you some bullshit and take a genueine 50 Euro note they then wrap two of the black notes together and make a sandwich of the whole thing. Loads of chemicals in a tray then miraculously THREE 50 Euro notes appear after a load of washing in a bucket. Brilliant act and of course all three notes are genuine. The scam is that they ‘need’ loads of genuine notes to activate their black ones, They then arrange a further meeting and they need some real money to activate their black money as the ‘sandwich’ process only works one time with each genuine note. A really clever scam which I am sure will con loads of people. These guys are slick and competent professionals be warned Regards Steve

    I need help. Two men from Cameroon have approached me and said that they have 3.5 million USD in “white negative bank-notes”. They transformed 2 white bank-notes in fromt of me using mercury and a transparent solution. They haven’t asked for any money from me but they want me to join them in their money-making activities. They haven’t revealed to me what they want from me. All I know is they want me to be involved in their money-making activities. What should I do? Am I being scammed? Please tell me your opinions. Thank you!!

  23. Dzember Says:

    I also was a victim of the black money scam. they ask me to use 1 piece genuine money and stack with 2 black notes like a sandwich. The result I get is all my genuine money turn black and the 2 African disappear. I have try to wash with ascorbic(vitamin C) but it doesn’t work. please give me other solution. I just want my money back

  24. sk Says:

  25. POp Says:

    I don know how people still believe this. But still will try to use this in a movie

  26. Ben Says:

    SCAM!!!!!!! They took me for over $10,000 and all I got in return was $100. They kept trying to get more from me, wanting me to buy more cleaning solution. Don’t get involved!!! I have reported to the FBI and they did nothing. Seems that this is over their heads or someone from there is also involved, I don’t know. This is a spam scam for sure probably funding some terrorist organization. It must be a big business because I get at least 1 of the scam e-mails per day. Someone is getting wealthy at our gullible expense.

    Hey guys, I’m aware that there is this scam going on, but I must tell you that there is some real thing as well. Some secret services use black coated currency to fund violent groups, especially the US. They give black dollars to the militants, and some chemical, both kept at different locations. So, even if a note goes in the unauthorized hands, they can’t use it. Even if the lot is looted, there is this way of tracking them. I must tell you that, I believe, its black mercury compound, usually, but the chemical is hard to find and there are a lot of scammers. Its rare, but you may expect it to be real if its in a conflict ridden zone, where many foreign agencies are involved.
