Dear waynesmithers,

"CV Soada Huida" is definitely a fraud. There can be no doubt about
this for two reasons:

1) The Indonesian Ministry of Industry maintains a database of
registered Indonesian companies. "CV" is the abbreviation of
"Commanditaire Vennootschap", which is an Indonesian legal form, a
limited partnership. So if the company existed, "Soada Huida" would
have to be their official name under which they are registered with
the Ministry of Industry. But they are not. Neither "Soada Huida" nor
a similar company name is listed anywhere in the official Indonesian
companies register.

2) The address of the company is a clumsy fake. There is indeed a
street named Jl. Semarang in the Indonesian city of Medan. However,
the postal code of that street is not 20143, but 20212.

You are the victim of fraudsters. I suggest that you contact your bank
so they can try to call back the transfer, if possible. And you should
contact the police. In case you are in the USA, you can also file a
complaint with the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center:

Hope this answers your question!
