Yet another front has been exposed for a group of sophisticated romance scammers operating on German dating site Elite Partner: Joseph Grossi of Opal Energies. There are two similar stories two other fake profiles operated by real scammers, and their fake companies. Those two company websites have now been taken down.
All three fake company fronts, and their associated CEOs, are based on similar stories. The
ROMANCE FRAUD! Opal Energies CEO Joseph Grossi is not Real – Joe Grossi
CEO was born in Germany, grew up in the USA, and recently moved back to Germany to establish a renewable energy company following the death/divorce of their spouse. Furthermore, the identities of the management team for Opal Energies are also fake. Further research has revealed that the members of the management team are associated with another legitimate company, Sanimax.
These pictures of Joseph Grossi are in fact a stolen pictures which have been associated with numerous scams on the web. Do not engage with this individual or with Opal Energies.
This is why he will NEVER do a video call, because the face of teh scammer does not match the photo.
If you are already communicating with “Joseph”, then DO NOT SEND HIM MONEY when he thinks you trust him, they will spend several weeks of months “grooming” you before asking for money.
