A COMPANY by the name of Prime Property Consortium LLC, which claims to be listed on the Emirates Stock exchange, has contacted a number of people selling their property in Cyprus in efforts to obtain their bank details.
If you receive emails from this company, I suggest you report the issue to the company advertising your property and also the police.
The first email you receive will probably be as follows:

The email will ask you for the full names and address to send the deposit check or the bank name, bank address, account name, account no. IBAN NO. for transfer of the deposit.
