Michiel Jacobs aka Johan, one of those hopeless scammers loitering on Facebook, has come up with a novel idea to extract the hard earned cash from unsuspecting non EU citizens.
Maybe the business plan was hatched in a bar over a few Dorada beers and it’s absolute genius.
Offer a paperwork service to non EU citizens, take their money, and don’t bother doing the work and why not keep the money too.
Nothing new here because Silvia Garcia is the person he seems to be aspiring to.
He’s very active on Facebook and even set up a group where he can corral his victims before the slaughter.
The hilarity of it all is that he himself doesn’t have his paperwork in order and is working illegally without registration.
He is not registered for the Economic Activity Tax so he earns income illegally without paying any tax and usually asks his victims to pay either by cash, or by Moneygram which says a lot about what type of person this guy is.
All the information has been forwarded to the Hacienda and local authorities for further investigation and living in Castle Harbour will not make him exempt from tax.
The advert below is from a group he promotes and for someone offering paperwork services and yet cannot sort his own out, we can only assume that his delusion is only matched by his clumsiness.
There are a couple of pending denuncias for him that I know about and I’m sure, more to follow. For now, the authorities will carry out their investigations and I hope those reading this will consider the risks of using people who are not working legally and not properly documented.
At the very least, if you insist on taking the risk, always make sure you don’t use the notorious payment methods associated with scammers like Moneygram or Western Union or cash, and remember to ask for an official receipt because I can guarantee that you’ll need one when you have to report to the police after the transaction.
