As part of my campaign to bust scams and expose how they work, I came across the yahoo trust format for client, which every internet user needs to be aware of.
My findings show that this scam format is a special way to build trust with clients, especially when a scammer is using the woman-to-man Dating Billing format.
Every potential victim a scammer meets on the internet is suspicious about them and looking to vet if they are real or a fraudster. Unless a scammer meets someone who has no idea about internet fraud, they are really in luck.
But with the news of internet scammers flooding everywhere, scammers do face great obstacles from clients who readily verify who they are communicating with to be sure it’s a real person behind the profile.
It isn’t easy for scammers to build trust with you. You will always want to ask them questions upon questions till you’re satisfied that the person you’re having a conversation with is legit.
So in this investigation, I’ll show you how scammers build trust, which is referred to as the trust format for client.
Formats like the wire-wire format (which I recently investigated and published) also need interaction between scammers and their clients who subsequently become victims.
Trust Format for Client to build Trust
I have been very thorough in investigating this scam format for you, even to a point of racking ideas from people who have either experienced or engaged in the act. With this research, you should be able to protect yourself and your personal information online. Below is how the trust format for client works:
1. Use a profile seeking men or women
From the scammer’s perspective, using a male profile has its advantages because men always lead the charge in conversations. Also, female clients would barely question a con artist apart from trying to learn a few things about them.
A yahoo artiste will claim they don’t do video calls and all that stuff until you see them in person—this is to hide their internet identity. They understand that you need to be sure who they are and they need to be able to fake it. They can do makeup or makeover to transform their face or even also wear clothes that misrepresents who you think they are.
The average illegal hustler wants the first impression of their client to be what they see physically through the camera. They can even add filters to the video to make you see what they want you to see.
If they want to avoid video calls, they can say something like:
“You know, I really want the first real image of you in my head to be when we meet physically. Meaning I would kill off my urge for a video call till I get to see you physically.”
This may stop you from bringing up any further conversation of video calling them. If you insist, they go ahead and prepare for a video call, but after faking their looks.
2. European – American origin
Another rule in the trust format for client is for a scammer let their client know that they don’t have a pure American background.
Here’s the trick: Americans have a distinct accent and know when a fellow American is speaking. If their client is an American, the scammer convinces them that they are a rich migrant from Europe in America, so the accent is foreign to them.
If you’re from Britain, the scammer can claim to be a Slovak-British immigrant or whatever else and that their parents own an oil well in Russia. But right now, they are constructing a mine in Africa that mines gold and diamond at faster levels.
That way, the scammer is certain you won’t have problems with their accent, and when they talk with you, you’d believe them.
3. You are a business investor
Most con artists will bring in Africa when it is time to use formats like gold format Read about the Gold format here (which I busted explicitly) or inheritance format [read more about inheritance format here]. Asians are rich, and that is another continent with a lot of millionaires.
4. Send her gifts
As a friend and someone they are getting to know, a scammer can also get you gifts like flowers or buy you coffee. Alternatively, they can help you accomplish small tasks that you’re working on remotely.
Small gifts greatly influence most women and even men, and they tend to trust better. A scammer will tell you that they imported gold into the country to get you to believe them more.
5. Come out with a business idea that would favor your client
When they want to bill their clients, they don’t ask them for help. Instead, they look out for business ideas that will help them make money.
Let’s say they claim that want to ship gold to the United States and they need someone in charge of sales; they can decide to employ you. If you eventually agree, they can use the fake courier website format to bill you.
The scammer will say that the package they sent to you has been seized by a corrupt local police officer demanding a bribe. The so-called bribe could be in the region of $5,000. They’d inform you that the total worth of the gold they imported into the country is around 40 million dollars, expecting you to help sort it out for a chance to live a good life.
They’d also remind you not to disclose this to anybody, not to complicate the issue with authorities.
6. Tell her to speak to your lawyer
Scammers usually have crew members that also work with them. If they have a lawyer profile on Instagram or Twitter, they can refer you to their so-called lawyer friend, who is also part of the crew.
That way, it will also help them build trust. One thing every scammer believes is that the game is like a chain, and they must satisfy every bit of it to cash out finally!
They usually think smart, act smart, and reason very fast!!!
They could have someone like the policeman even contact you and explain the situation. This is what is known as the trust format for client.
Below is an example of the trust format I came across during this research.
Sample Trust Format for Client
I came across your e-mail!
Greetings to you, Please permit me to introduce myself, I came across your e-mail prior to a private search while in need of your assistance. My name is Mr. Abderazack Zebdani, from Burkina Faso, I work at Bank Of Africa (BOA) as Telex Manager, please see this as a confidential message and do not reveal it to another person, and let me know whether you can be of assistance regarding my proposal below because it is top secret.
Nevertheless, I want you to understand that there are still genuine and legitimate business class persons in the internet world today so I am assuring you that this transaction is 100% genuine.
I am about to retire from active Banking service to start a new life. But I am skeptical to reveal this particular secret to a stranger. You must assure me that everything will be handled confidentially because we are not going to suffer again in life. It has been 10 years now that most of the greedy African Politicians used our bank to launder money overseas with the help of their Political advisers.
Most of the funds which they transferred out of the shores of Africa were gold and oil money that was supposed to have been used to develop the continent.
Their Political advisers always inflated the amounts before transferring to foreign accounts, so I also used the opportunity to divert part of the funds hence I am aware that there is no official trace of how much was transferred as all the accounts used for such transfers were being closed after transfer. I acted as the Bank Officer to most of the politicians and when I discovered that they were using me to succeed in their greedy act; I also cleaned some of their banking records from the Bank files and no one cared to ask me because the money was too much for them to control. They laundered over $ 5 billion during the process.
Before I send this message to you, I have already diverted ($10.5million) to an escrow account belonging to no one in the bank. The bank is anxious now to know who the beneficiary of the funds is because they have made a lot of profits with the funds. It is more than eight years now, I don’t want to retire from the bank without transferring the funds to a foreign account, I only want you to assist me by providing a reliable bank account where the funds can be transferred. The money will be shared 60% for me and 40% for you. There is no one coming to ask you about the funds because I secured everything.
You are not to face any difficulties or legal implications as I am going to handle the transfer personally. If you are capable of receiving the funds, do let me know immediately to enable me to give you detailed information on what to do. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Thanks with my best regards.

Lastly, scammers using the trust g format tend to spend more time searching for clients and chatting with them. Of course, they’d be visiting dating sites to get real women they can chat with, earn their trust and then proceed with any scam format.
