Scammer: Peter Bragansa aka David Gordon - midastechs.com - Tech Support Payment Gateway
by Rudolf Faix Tuesday, April 18, 2017 3:07 AM

Scammer Peter BragansaIn the offer from the scammer Peter Bragansa - petebrag@gmail.com - Tech Support Payment Gateway we'll should find some more information about some people participating in the scam. It should look like, that

... by and between and Midas Techs and its Group of Companies (together known as MTcorp at 511 Avenue Of The Americas, Suite 95 New York City, NY 10011 a USA company, ...

is nothing else than a group of scammers. For the case that someone likes to believe, that the scammer Peter Bragansa is misusing the name from Midas Techs, this one needs to remember, that one condition to enter into business with these shady types of business man is:

INSTRUCTIONS: SIGN ABOVE AND EMAIL SCANNED COPY OF CURRENT GOVERNMENT ISSUED IDENTIFICATION TO centers@midastechs.com

Why shall someone ask you to send scanned copies to his email address at his domain?

What can get proved with scanned ids?
Already this fact shows that the scammer is never a real business man. Copies can even not get used in front of a law court. Cross border contracts have to get signed in front of a notary and the signatures need to get confirmed all levels up until the ministry of interiors and by the embassy of the other country. Otherwise the contract will even not have the value of the paper on which it gets printed.

For what purpose like this idiot to get copied id's? Is identity theft his his second source of income?

There is a small chance, that the scammer Peter Bragansa is the domain administrator from MidasTechs, located in 2017 Glenwood Way, Midlothian, TX 76065. The provided US phone number (707) 564-3275 from the homepage of MidasTechs has the prefix from Vacaville, California and seems to be a Google voice number. At least 411.com provides this information about the phone number (707) 564-3275. Why a company, which is offering PC support, located in Texas shall use a phone number from California? Google voice phone numbers with the prefix from Texas are also available.

Another suspicious point is, that MidasTechs is hiding their offer of support plans at their homepage behind a password:

Does MidasTechs fear that someone will erroneously order a support package from them?

More interesting is the UK freephone number provided at the homepage from midastechs.com. The UK phone number gets found at the homepages adsoclick.com and 247masters.com from the Tech Support Scammer - ADS O CLICK LIMITED - UK Company Number 10219203. Additional gets the same number found at the homepage informationkarma.com from the Tech Support Scammer: Seven Monies Services Ltd. - Geetika Dawer - Arora Ashish located in Canada.

It looks like that Peter Bragansa aka David Gordon needs someone who is making and paying the promotion for his phone numbers. Everybody knows that the tech support offers are scam. It even does not help him, writing into the contract what is all not allowed. He destroys by his own conditions the only one reason why someone would sign up such a contract.

Someone provided the following information to me:

They said that they were MidasTechs at PO Box 8734, Midlothian, TX 76065. This is not a valid mailing address, but it is the address listed on the web site www.midastechs.com. 

Google earth picture from the address of MidasTechs:

Ellis CAD - Property Search shows as actual owner from the property:

Owner ID: 124640
Name: HINMAN LARRY & CARLA
Mailing Address: 2017 GLENWOOD WAY
MIDLOTHIAN, TX 76065-7503
% Ownership: 100.0%

 

An email about the existence of a company with the name MidasTechs or about the expected owner David Gordon got answered from the Texas Secretary of State as following:

Betreff: RE: Question about business search in Texas

Good Morning,

Our records reflect no active or inactive listing for MidasTechs as a corporation, limited liability company, nonprofit organization, limited partnership, or assumed name. Not all entities are filed with the Secretary of State. Sole Proprietorships and General Partnerships are filed at the County Clerk’s office of the county in which they are located. 

Sincerely, 

Brandy Williams
Corporations
Texas Secretary of State
512-463-5555

Some states, like Texas, register fictitious business names or "doing business as" names, or sole proprietorships, etc., at the county level (every state has dozens of different counties within it).  Those are harder to search for because most counties don’t have online access to their records.

But anyone can do business as anything that they want. It is very unlikely that someone might get fined by the state for not registering his fictitious business name, but there is nothing to stop somebody from doing business with an unregistered name.

There are for me a lot of questions open:

  • Why someone should give someone 20-30% from his own income for only getting a payment gateway?

  • Why should a legal company pay for a service more than 10 times the price for what it can get cheaper?
    For a percentage between 1% and 3% is a contract with a real payment processor or a credit card corporator possible.

  • The bounties for foreign transfers are not very low. So why shall someone make an additional cross border transfer and pay additional 20%-30% for the gateway provider?

  • What a center gets really for letting another scammer participating on their work?

  • By reading the contract at Google Docs (.pdf (234.25 kb)), I'll get the feeling that the scammer likes to make himself to the the boss of the center. Who enjoys it to hire a boss by himself?

Scammer: Peter Bragansa - Yenda Liboon - All Fix Tech - allfixtech.com
by Rudolf Faix Wednesday, March 1, 2017 2:05 AM

Yenda LiboonPeter BragansaThe Better Business Bureau (BBB) provides for the company All Fix Tech, located at 100 West St Apt D7, Rocky Hill, CT 06067-3558, phone (888) 384-4824, 1.66 stars out of 5 based on 2 Customer Reviews and a BBB Rating of F. The reason for the bad rating is, that All Fix Tech failed to respond to 8 complaints filed against their business. The business Started: 09/25/2012 under Sole Proprietorship. Business Management: Mr. Pete Bragansa, Owner/Business Manager and Ms. Yenda Liboon, Customer Service Manager.

At the BBB complaints list about All Fix Tech - Peter Bragansa gets the following complaint from September 13, 2014 found:

When I did not receive satisfactory service, I requested a refund. I was promised a $50.00 refund, then immediately received an email stating the following:

We have written your check and put it in the envelope but cannot send it yet because our bank took $30,000 of ours so we have to delay in... refund payments. However, know that in the next three weeks, we will send it. We are here and servicing our customers and just need these three weeks to stabilize sales again and will then send the check. As you can see from the image, the check is ready. This bank was even bailed out by the taxpayers in 2008 but still took these funds as a reserve so there was nothing we could do. We honor all refunds usually within days but because of this situation have to delay. We are extremely sorry for this, and it has really hurt us, but we are here and will mail it over the next three weeks and let you knowwhen it goes out. We are dedicated to honesty and integrity so this is very difficult for us and we appreciate your understand and patience.

This is not credible, therefore I am filing this complaint.

If a business owner needs to make a statement, that he has even not $50 for a refund of a customer available, then he should go and file a bankruptcy record. Such a message, like shown above, destroys any reputation of a business. Not one real business owner, who has all his senses together, will send such a message to a customer. If it would not got published from the BBB, then I would think about a bad joke instead of a serious message.

A bank limits your access to funds if someone has a lot of suspicious activities done and the risk for the bank is too high. In such a case you'll need to wait until the cancellation period for transfer is over for having access to your funds on the account.

Such a joke figure and liar is never a serious business man. That gets shown by his contract offer too:

This Agreement is entered into on start date above 2016 (“Effective Date”) by and between and All Fix Tech Support and its Group of Companies (together known as ALLF) at 511 Avenue Of The Americas, Suite 95 New York City, NY 10011 , a USA company, and the company (Company) listed in the data set and the blank below.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have caused this Agreement to be executed by their duly authorized representatives as of the Effective Date.

__COMPANY NAME_____ & ALL FIX TECH SUPPORT and affiliated companies

I AGREE TO THE CONTENTS OF THIS ENTIRE AGREEMENT:

 

BY: _________________________ BY: ____________________

(sign above ) (sign above )

PRINTED NAME: ______    printed name: Pete Bragansa

Date: ________________ DATE: _______________

Please email from official company address.

INSTRUCTIONS: SIGN ABOVE AND EMAIL SCANNED COPY OF CURRENT GOVERNMENT ISSUED IDENTIFICATION TO TSCORPMGMT@GMAIL.COM

First page of 891TemplateCenterAgreementSCDN891sc1.pdf (228.54 kb)

The provided address, 511 Avenue Of The Americas, Suite 95 New York City, NY 10011, is the address from Opus Virtal Offices - a mail forwarding company, where you can rent your virtual office for $99/month. An unknown group of companies with the name ALLF is not able to provide a real address?

Why someone shall send any scanned copy of a current government issued id? Is Peter Bragansa not able to use Photoshop or a similar program by himself? With scanned documents he can get proven nothing and they even cannot get used in front of law court.

A second source of income from Peter Bragansa seems really to be identity theft. The phone number provided at the homepage of allfixtech.com has been 1-877-812-5249. A search about this phone number returned a topic from Reddit Canada. There has written the user MarcusMagnus around one year ago:

PSA: Identity Theft Scheme - Bell and Virgin Mobile

Today I received a call from 514-870-7329 from a person named Andre who claimed to be with Bell and Virgin Mobile Corporate Security. He wanted me to confirm my personal information to make sure that the account I signed up for yesterday was not a case of identity theft.

I told him I don't know that he is who he says he is so he gave me this number to call: 1-877-812-3544. I googled the number with no results indicating it was from Bell. I called Virgin and they told me it has nothing to do with them or Bell and not to call him back.

I googled the number he called from and this came up.
So it's an obvious scam. I wonder how he knew I signed up yesterday and used my driver's license as ID.

That the contract got written by a business deadbeat, like Peter Bragansa, gets shown by the point terms. There is written:

3. TERM

  1. This Agreement shall be effective for a period of three (3) years from the Effective Date.

  2. This Agreement shall be automatically renewed for successive one year terms unless one party gives written notice of termination to the other party at least sixty (60) days prior to the effective renewal date.

  3. Company must notify ALLF at least 180 Days prior to any stoppage in processing sales or decrease sales by more than 80% from 180 day volume average.

  4. Upon thirty days prior written notice, ALLF may terminate this Agreement for cause. “For cause” means any material breach of the terms of this Agreement that is not remedied within ten (10) days of delivery of written notice of such breach by the nonbreaching party.

Which value such a contract has, can get shown that the contract should start during 2016 and on September 10, 2016 the website from allfixtech.com got already shut down. In this case Peter Bragansa has broken already all his contracts on his own terms. He is only lucky, that in the contract are no fines for breaking the terms specified.

Does Peter Bragansa not have any magic glass sphere, which he expect in point 3 that others have it? For me it looks like, that Peter Bragansa is really only a janitor, like it is written at his Facebook profile. He does not have any idea from any business and he has no idea of drafting contracts.

The German word Hausmeister from the above screenshot has the meaning of janitor. What else than a very bad rating from the Better Business Bureau for such a company failure and deadbeat can get expected?

Peter Bragansa is even not able to handle the program correctly with which he wrote the contract draft. So you'll find the caption TECHNICAL SUPPORT ADDENDUM as the last line on page 5 and the remaining text on page 6. Additional exists an empty page 9.

Everybody knows already that scammers are very lazy and even too lazy to use their own brain. Therefore Peter Bragansa is even using the same STARTING CENTERS SIGN UP FORM at Google Forms made for All Fix Tech, found at the end of contract draft, for his next scam company with the name MidasTechs. Some people are even too lazy to learn from their own mistakes.

It seems that Peter Bragansa does not even expect by himself that his business model is functioning well. For this reason he is even not the owner of the domain of his company. Domain owner from allfixtech.com is Manuel Rubindecelis from Rocky Hill, Connecticut.

Fraud and Scam

Scammer & Identity Theft: Thomas Tryon - safehavenleads.com
by Rudolf Faix Friday, June 5, 2015 6:05 AM

Thomas TryonIn this case we have not only a scam. This scam is combined with an identity theft because the scammer is using the name and the picture from Thomas Tryon. At WikiPedia we can find out that Thomas Tryon died already on September 4, 1991 - around 24 years ago. As already the name and the picture is a fake nobody can trust in such a case to the remaining content and offers. So be aware to make some business with such a person or a person with such a profile!

That the scammer is not living in New York is shown already the time of his postings. If he would life in the U.S. then he could not offer some leads for offshore because the data protection law is for him valid too. The fine of the FTC for exporting data out from the U.S. is US$ 16,000 per customer / consumer record. This makes his business uneconomical. I think that he is nothing else than a stupid scammer from India.

The profile of the scammer:

Thomas Tryon
Director of Database Management PCM Capital Partners: tom@safehavenleads.com
New York, New York - Informationsdienste

Aktuell: PCM Capital Partners
Früher: Assent/ Sungard, Greenwich Equity Partners
Ausbildung: Trinity College-Hartford

The original bio from Thomas Tryon together with the his picture

Found found at http://www.feedyourneedtoread.com/contributor/thomas-tryon/#full-bio-tab:

Thomas Tryon (1926 - 1991), actor turned author, made his bestselling debut with The Other (1971), which spent nearly six months on the New York Times bestseller list and allowed him to quit acting for good; a film adaptation, with a screenplay by Tryon and directed by Robert Mulligan, appeared in 1972. Tryon wrote two more novels set in the fictional Pequot Landing of The Other - Harvest Home (1973) and Lady (1974). Crowned Heads (1976) detailed the lives of four fictional film stars and All That Glitters (1986) explored the dark side of the golden age of Hollywood. Night Magic (published posthumously in 1995) was a modern-day retelling of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. 

Additional we can find at WikiPedia:

Thomas "Tom" Tryon (January 14, 1926 – September 4, 1991) was an American film and television actor, best known for playing the title role in the film The Cardinal (1963) and the Walt Disney television character Texas John Slaughter (1958–1961). He later turned to the writing of prose fiction and screenplays, and wrote several science fiction, horror and mystery novels.

Scammer Exposed

Earnings of Thieves Selling Your Personal Data Online
by Rudolf Faix Saturday, May 30, 2015 5:56 AM

dark keyboardWith a record number of ruptures in the U.S. amid 2014, more individual data is coasting around on the web than at any other time in recent memory some time recently. Yet, your saving money information, well-being records and even your Facebook account all accompany a sticker on the dark web.

The dark web is the place the commercial centers for stolen information exist. The dark web exists on the "deep web," which is the piece of the web that is not indexed by ordinary web indexes, as Google. To get to these dark corners of the web exceptional programming called Tor must be utilized. 

While Mastercard data can offer for just a couple bucks on underground market sites, well-being records keep running about $50 per record, as per a report by Dell SecureWorks. Bank account data is a higher ticket thing and can offer for $1,000 or all the more relying upon the amount of cash is in the record.

Purchasers can even purchase somebody's online networking record for about $50 or get an altogether new character in addition to a coordinating service bill for just about $350. 

Here's a speedy take a gander at what other individual data goes for on the dull web, as indicated by the report:

 

  • Bank certification: $1,000 in addition to (6% of the aggregate dollar sum in the record) 
  • U.S. credit card with track information (account number, expiration date, name, etc.): $12
  • EU, Asia credit card with track data: $28
  • Website hacking: $100 to $300
  • Copied social security cards: $250 and $400
  • Copied driver's license: $100 to $150

 

Be that as it may, lawbreakers aren't the main ones paying for your lost individual data. Organizations that are influenced by information breaks are needing to shell out a considerable measure of cash for every record that gets spilled in an information rupture.

The normal worldwide expense of a lost or stolen information record for an organization in 2014 was $154, that is a 23% expansion since 2013, as indicated by a study by IBM and the Ponemon Institute distributed Wednesday. The expense incorporates the legal and investigative work expected to address a rupture, and additionally the expense of wholesale fraud programs for individuals whose records were spilled.

Human services organizations are needing to pay the most with the normal cost for a lost information record coming to $363. Furthermore, retailers' expense per record went from $105 in 2013 to $165 in 2014.

The surge in information breaks, particularly those created by sorted out wrongdoing, is driving the expense of lost or stolen records for organizations, said Marc van Zadeloff, VP of system and item for IBM security.

Only in the US, there was a sum of 783 information breaks a year ago, a 27.5% increment from 2013, as per the Identity Theft Resource Center. What's more, as indicated by the IBM report, 47% of ruptures in its study were created by a malevolent or criminal assault. 

“As you see the rise of malicious organized criminals, they become harder to track and trace and remediate,” Zedeloff said. “These criminals on the dark web are collaborating, sharing techniques and malware and when they break in, they are very good. They are able to stay on systems longer, they are stealthier and therefore they are more costly for organizations.”

While customers who are influenced by a break may be given wholesale fraud protection, there's still a couple of things they can do to take their security into their own hands, Zedeloff said.

To start with, never utilize the same password for different services and change passwords frequently. Second, make a point to have the most recent security on the majority of your gadgets and utilize two variable confirmation when accessible. Also, last, look out for any sort of suspicious action. Whether its a shady email, a companion demand from somebody you don't know or odd action on any of your accounts, be proactive in checking everything from your social records to your bank accounts.
