Scammer: Dylan McMasters - mcmastersdylan@yahoo.com - NEW IBO Birch Program for Safe Link......
by Rudolf Faix Wednesday, February 8, 2017 1:43 AM

A special deadbeat seems to be the scammer, who is presenting himself at LinkedIn with the name Dylan McMasters and is using a picture from the british Folk Rock singer Roy Harper for his profile. Before he has been using a picture from Anchorman 2. The stupid guy like thinks that he is a chameleon or others are more stupid than him. He likes to be the president at Lamb Consulting, a one person marketing company where the owner is Debbie Lamb. The company is based at Vallejo, California in Solano County. The self promoted president of this company provides at LinkedIn his location from Savannah, Georgia. The distance between these two points is only 6.5 hours by taking an airplane, because Savannah, Georgia is located at the east cost and Vallejo, California at the west coast.

Which company will use any free email address service, like Yahoo, Gmail, Outlook, etc. if they have an own domain and an own mail server?

Which impression makes a business man, who cannot show his own face at his profile picture?

Such an amateur, who is even too stupid to fake a believable profile, offers at LinkedIn Pulse and in email spam his scam campaign:

The criminal even fakes an online store, where he likes to get credit card information for his fraud. For this reason he has created at 3dcartstores.com an online store, which should make the impression that it is a store from Immerge. His problem is only, that he has been even too lazy for testing the links at the front page and to think that a company like Immerge would use their own domain name for their online store.

The brainless scammer, who is calling himself Dylan McMasters, is even not able to show his own face and likes to verify someone others identity by using inappropriate methods:

IBO Onboarding

All IBOs must be vetted and approved by IMMERGE prior to being able to onboard agents. Birch does not have to approve IBO subcontractors. Here is the process:

  1. IBOs must complete:
    1. Agency/Subcontractor Information Form
    2. A vetting call to determine the launch date, agent headcount, training plan and past experience.
  2. IBO must provide and/or have:
    1. Physical office with a video
    2. Proof of good standing for entity
    3. Government issued ID for Principal
    4. W9
    5. Business bank account
    6. Business logo
    7. Website
  3. IBO Principal must complete background check

If a company likes to make a background check get done, then is it a problem of the company itself. The one who pays such a background check will have the possibility influence the result. So the possible client will have to hire an independent investigator, who is making the background check including collecting information from the local authorities of the suspect. In such a case is even the point 2 complete useless. Videos can get done from everywhere and are proving nothing. I think that the scammer Dylan McMasters will even not get it, if I create an "Government issued ID" by myself and send it to him as a scanned copy.

Another proof for the scam is, that the scammer Dylan McMasters even don't know that a W9 form is only issued in the US, but he sends the email all over the world. So he will even not recognize it, if someone will send him a similar form to the W9 from his own tax office.

The scammer seems even trying to use the submitted data for a future scams, like the same way he is doing now the scam by using the company names from Lamb Consulting, Birch Communications, Tempo Wireless, Immerge and T-Mobile in his scam.

The deceiver closes from himself to others, because he even likes to verify the agents from the company to get hired. He seems to be by himself a drug addict:

Agent Onboarding

IMMERGE works with Birch to facilitate the onboarding process for our IBOs. Below are the requirements for onboarding new sales representatives and the respective costs for the processes. The IBOs are responsible for covering these costs. Agents will not be onboarded without completing these steps. There will be no exceptions.

  1. National Criminal Check, Sex Offender Registry, SSN Trace, and Terrorist Watch List check - $3
  2. A five panel mouth swab drug test. A picture of the test will be uploaded to IMMERGE with the agent’s completed background consent form. IMMERGE will internally validate the results and approve the agent. Each drug test costs $5 and can be purchased in packs of 5 for $25 total from the IMMERGE store.
  3. IMMERGE will submit agents to Birch for approval once the agents complete the onboarding steps above AND they’ve completed all required training documents.
  4. IMMERGE will submit each agents that passes the onboarding process to Birch. Birch will assign them an agent ID and IMMERGE will then send them a temporary then hard badge upon approval. Agent IDs and badges will be issued 24 hours (business days only) after IMMERGE submits them to Birch.

In the above lines the scammer Dylan McMasters shows that he is missing any intelligence. He likes to make drug tests from agents, where the result needs to get uploaded somewhere. Who will check it, that the agent has done the test by himself?

The whole campaign offer from Dylan McMasters is nothing else than a fake. He likes to get as much information as possible and making money using his fake online store and selling fake articles to centers.

If someone likes to work for Birch Communications, than he can sign up at their company directly as Channel Partner, Platform Partner, Business Referral Partner or Birch Customer Referral. Nobody need to get in such a case in contact with such a scammer like Dylan McMasters, who is even not able show his own face.

The same way everybody can sign up at Tempo Wireless. They have an opportunity at their website to become an agent for them.

Update February 12, 2017: The scammer has not only changed his profile picture at LinkedIn, he has also a new scam offer:

The idiot is still not able to show his own face. For this reason you should put his offers where it needs to end up - into the recycle bin. His name and even his company is the same fake like his profile picture.

 

Scammer: Deepankar Sharma - ialfatech.com - alfabrotherscapital.com - rxpaymaster.com - bpo-system.com

Deepankar Sharma LinkedIn profile pictureThe scammer Deepankar Sharma (.pdf) has been crying to me like "please stop me scamming" or he has been so stupid to show me that he is really a scammer. Both is possible, because in earlier communications he had already shown that he is even too stupid to start a computer from a DVD. With other words the scammer Deepankar Sharma, which calls himself at his LinkedIn profile to be a BPO consultant, don't know which software he can use for call center (he asked me on Skype for it) and which VoIP provider is offering a good service (he asked me on Skype for it earlier) and seems to be in need to read instructions for going to the toilet. Such a guy is never a BPO consultant or a call center owner. He is even for scamming too stupid or too lazy.

In any case the scammer Deepankar Sharma has tried to verify his scam campaigns with my help. The problem is only that he got an unexpected result and a free promotion at my blog.

The scammer Deepankar Sharma provides to phone numbers from India at his Skype profile - +918871384948 and +919074105850:

Skype profile of Deepankar Sharma

Here is my Skype conversation with the scammer. I have marked the important information red and interrupted the communications with my comments:

[25.02.2016 22:36:16] Rudolf Faix: Good morning
Thanks, I'm fine, I hope you are fine too
Be very carefully with the offer, because he is not able to give you accesss to any customer data for the reason of the customer protection law.
[03:41:49] deepankarsharma: http://www.ialfatech.com/
[03:42:01] deepankarsharma: Company website
[03:43:15] deepankarsharma: Tanim ovi the person name
[03:49:03] Rudolf Faix: This website is 167 Days old
The website expected life (365 days) is relatively short.
The website appears to be less than six months old
[03:54:38] Rudolf Faix: The website has maybe a visitor once a month - http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/ialfatech.com#trafficstats
[03:55:07] Rudolf Faix: No other sites are linking to this site
[03:56:04] Rudolf Faix: The name Tanim Ovi is not from an U.S, person
[03:56:21] deepankarsharma: He is from
[03:57:12] deepankarsharma: One more person are there is Malvin
[03:57:14] deepankarsharma: Can you ping me +1-239-285-9143

Nice from Deepankar Sharma to provide his VoIP number from the United States. We'll find that he has even used this phone number for the domain registration for his scam domains and provided at some websites, but let us continue the game and let us see how it is going on.

[03:57:17] Rudolf Faix: That sounds like he is somewhere from Asia, maybe China
[03:57:20] deepankarsharma: That is no
[03:58:26] Rudolf Faix: Funny is their first info contact address "billing@ialfatech.com". That sounds not really good

Wow, it seems that someone has been under drugs as he is using the bookkeeping department as first customer contact. That shows already that the company is not really trustful because the most request are coming about their billing.

[03:58:32] deepankarsharma: Malvin Alfaro is the another guy
[04:01:20] Rudolf Faix: The domain is registered to Malvin Alfaro. It seems that his source is Italy or Spain (from the name). That does not say that he is not U.S: citizen
[04:01:56] Rudolf Faix: You'll find a lot of people with European and Chinese source in the U.S.,
[04:02:55] Rudolf Faix: The registrant email of the domain is: anuj.kamlesh@gmail.com. That sounds very strong like a name from India

[04:53:11] deepankarsharma: She edu me about pharma campaign
[04:53:23] deepankarsharma: And she also refer,me,one person name Simon miller
[04:54:11] deepankarsharma: Pls check,this is genuine or,not
[04:56:00] Rudolf Faix: The domain rxpaymaster.com does not sound like from a pharma company. The site is protected by a privacy service and only 285 days old
[04:56:33] Rudolf Faix: The site is hosted in Sweden. Very seldom will host an US company abroad
[04:56:59] deepankarsharma: Ok so wht is all about
[04:58:49] Rudolf Faix: http://www.rxpaymaster.com/ is nothing else than a MLM system. The most of these systems are nothing else than fraud or scam
[04:59:22] Rudolf Faix: You can sign up without someone and work for yourself. You need not someone from them.
[05:00:11] deepankarsharma: Ok
[05:01:07] deepankarsharma: Simon miller give me two portal sales and commission portal
[05:01:46] deepankarsharma: http://www.bpo-system.com/logon/logon.php
[05:01:47] deepankarsharma: Login id deepankarsharma4
[05:01:51] Rudolf Faix: That you get by signing up without simon miller too
[05:01:55] deepankarsharma: Password 12345
[05:02:26] Rudolf Faix: The password says already everything about their system :)
[05:02:36] deepankarsharma: https://statistics.bpo-system.com/login
[05:03:04] deepankarsharma: This password i reset
[05:03:05] deepankarsharma: Sir

Not only the password has been very suspicious, there is more suspicious that the domain rxpaymaster.com got created  9 months ago (creation date May 17, 2015) and the "commission portal" domain bpo-system.com is only a few days older than one month (creation date January 21, 2016). Both domains are hidden by a privacy protection service, which does not make them really trustful.

[05:03:26] Rudolf Faix: Don't worry about it
[05:03:40] deepankarsharma: This is genuine
[05:03:54] Rudolf Faix: Hidden domain ownership says already very much
[05:04:05] deepankarsharma: Coz lars might be outsource this campaign
[05:04:10] deepankarsharma: I dnt understand sir
[05:04:51] deepankarsharma: I am very much worried if is fake then i can stop this or genuine then o can start
[05:04:52] Rudolf Faix: Do you mean Lars from DBM
[05:05:59] deepankarsharma: Yes i am,not sure that he outsource this same campaign but he also offer same campaign
[05:07:21] deepankarsharma: Wait
[05:07:23] Rudolf Faix: I don't see any Pharma campaign in the offers from Deep Blue Marketing
[05:09:12] deepankarsharma: Please send your mail,id i will forward u lars mail
[05:09:47] Rudolf Faix: Here you have alll open campaigns from DBM: http://deepbluem.com/category/campaigns/

You see the type mismatch in the email address of Lars Christian if you copy & paste the email address with the right mouse click to another destination. I have copied the mistake near to the name into brakets and marked the type mismatch red for making it visible. For this reason the communication could never happened as the scammer and faker Deepankar Sharma likes to show. I liked that he forwards me the mail headers from this emails, but he could not do it. 

[05:14:44] Rudolf Faix: Maybe the campaign is new.
[05:16:39] deepankarsharma: This is same as mine pharma campaign
[05:17:01] deepankarsharma: Robert Shindoll
[05:17:10] deepankarsharma: Offer me,that campaign
[05:17:19] Rudolf Faix: I'm not sure. The email address has a problem in the mail you forwarded to me
[05:17:57] deepankarsharma: Ok
[05:18:30] Rudolf Faix: can you copy me the headers? Normally you'll find the headers in google near the date. There is an arrow down menu there you can select "show original"
[05:18:44] deepankarsharma: Link your linkdin id one person Robert Shindoll outsource me,this campaign. He is in your,linkdin id also
[05:18:50] deepankarsharma: Might be u knw him

[05:19:09] deepankarsharma: Wait
[05:19:20] Rudolf Faix: You'll find at my LinkedIn profile a lot of scammers too
[05:22:48] Rudolf Faix: The correct email address is:
campaigns@deepbluem.com
camapigns@deepbluem.com is that what you have sent in your email.
You could even not have a communication with Lars because I have verified the settings on the mailserver
[05:22:54] deepankarsharma: I will send u mail again when i reached to office
[05:23:25] Rudolf Faix: You see the difference in the email address?
[05:23:59] Rudolf Faix: There is even no office email address available
[05:26:02] deepankarsharma: Got it

Are we in the kindergarten that he needs time for producing a new fake? How stupid is this scammer that he even does not get it that he got caught already? Someone like this likes to be a BPO consultant? I think a kindergarten child has more brain than the scammer Deepankar Sharmar. Who shall hire such a stupid consultant? An interested amateur can deliver a better work than this guy.

[05:28:50] Rudolf Faix: The email needed to bounce back in any case
[05:31:21] Rudolf Faix: At the mailserver are only 3 email addresses for deepbluem.com registered. So don't send me any fakes.
[05:31:39] Rudolf Faix: I'll not help you to invent campaigns!

The provided U.S.VoIP phone number gets found in the domain registration data of alfabrotherscapital.com, a company which registers a domain and continues to use their weebly hosting. That is not really a good idea. It shows that nobody from the company has any idea about making business and the business is only existing in a dream. Here is a screenshot from http://alfabrotherscapital.weebly.com/contact-us.html with the provided U.S. VoIP phone number from the scammer :

Scamwarning: Book Typing, Proof Reading, All types of Form Filling, HTML Tagging
by Rudolf Faix Monday, April 20, 2015 3:14 PM

FormsToday I got an interesting comment on one of my LinkedIn postings about scammer. This comment explains how the non voice processes are getting traded and why they are only offered with a huge upfront fee.

You can find the original posting in the LinkedIn group: Process Group: BPO, Call Center, Data Entry, KPO by following this link. I have copied the content of the comment:

Hello Mr Rudolf,

There are another set of scammers..who work very openly and have nice offices,technical support and sell 'work at home type' single ID's.The process is so well designed that an average skill person will never be able to get the desired accuracy. Losing money with very well designed reports which are many a times disputable.After a detailed research it was observed that only 2 to 3% of the people get paid out of which 50% get paid less than 50%.The business goes on like any life insurance company.Only 3 to 4% claim depth benefit.I made and algorithm to simulate the cash flow and it was observed that such companies make money with even 50% qualifying rate.They also have MLM type sales network.To arrest such pratice I started a FREE consulting service and a prepared a detailed manual how to identify such process and how to tackle accuracy to get best performance.There is also a one hour short course on all those interested to understand the pitfalls of the work.

Lastly we also found same data is given again and again with only 20% fresh data with an intention of disqualifying he working agent.The reason is the company has advanced tools to compare the agents data with their 100% correct data in their own database.

In short even a genuine process can be easily scammed only to make more money. 

Typical process in this category are: Book Typing, Proof reading, All types of form filling, HTML Tagging.

Regards,
Vilas Unawane

Remember: Each upfront, any fee - however she is called - and any security deposit is only SCAM.

 

How to identify scam and bad selling products without making a background check – a translation between promotion and reality
by Rudolf Faix Monday, March 9, 2015 11:47 PM

The following list give you an overview how you can identify a scammer and bad selling products without making a background check - only by reading their offers with an open mind:

  • Earnings in the spotlight
    Every advertising, which puts the amount of earnings into the spotlight, is nothing else than scam. As higher the promoted earnings are, as less reachable they will be for the case it is not a scam.

  • Pay per sale
    Even the client knows that his product is hard to sell.  If the client has an easy selling product, than he would offer only an hourly rate for the sales people.Each business is done for making profit. Nobody likes to pay more than absolutely necessary.

  • High commission per sale
    As higher the promised commission per sale is as more difficult is it to sell the product. Nobody likes to pay more than it is absolutely necessary to find someone to doing the work.

  • Offer without a picture of a real person or of a celebrity
    The salesperson already cannot show his face in public.  Maybe he/she has scammed already some people and need to hide himself for this purpose. It is also possible that such a person gets searched already by the police or Interpol. They are browsing the social networks too.

  • Offers without an email address
    Such an offer is only a time waster. Such people even don’t know that the world has 24 time zones and are expecting that everybody is waiting for them.

  • Calling data (phone numbers with names) are not provided by the client
    Address agencies are already to expensive for the client. He expect that you are making with already heavy used data a big business. Hopefully the client will be able to pay the center for their work,

  • “genuine” offers
    Where is only written about a “genuine” campaign or product  than it is only scam. The person, who is offering something like that, does not even know what he is offering.

  • Email me for more details
    That is only a time waster. Such people are only collecting email addresses. Maybe they can sell It somewhere. A normal salesperson will describe his product very well, because he has less work with false requests in this case. Why he should make more work for himself than necessary.

  • Call me for more details
    That is even a larger time waster. Such a person is already afraid from the written words, which can get used against him. For this he likes to speak only. Such offers are in each case only a scam.

  • Act fast phrases like "Last Chance", "Limited Slots", "Limited Seats", "HURRY UP", etc.
    The best translation would be: Don’t prove the offer or make a background check. In such a case you’ll find the scam immediately.

  • Any upfront fees – however they are getting called
    That is the plumpest scam ever. If a client likes that you are using special software, than he has to pay for it. Maybe the client is already nearly bankrupt and cannot pay already the products, which you should use. In such a case he would even not be able to pay you for your work in the case it is not only a scam.

  • Royalty fees
    It proves only that the “broker” has no contract with the client. For this is it already scam.

  • Security deposit
    A security deposit is given normally to this one, which is working and has some investments to do. This is in the case the call center, because they are investing in staff and phone minutes. The broker gets paid from the client for whom he is working.

  • Exuberant praising a product or campaign
    You will not be able to sell such a product to normal people. Such products are normally overpriced and trash. The purpose of such a behavior is to find stupid people, which will buy it. With the exuberant praising of a product or campaign the salesperson likes to hide the known problems of the product.

  • MLM – Multi Level Marketing
    In such a system are getting low quality products for a very high price sold. The product price needs to pay your upline and need to be a winning for the company. You need to be happy if you are at least earning the costs you have with it.

  • Repeated posting of the same campaign
    Real campaigns need to get posted only once, they get very fast taken. If a campaign gest posted longer as a few days then is in any case something wrong with the campaign.

  • The offer sounds too good to be true
    In this case the offer is only a scam

 

As more from the above points are fitting to an offer as higher is the risk for running into a trap.

 

If the offer is interesting than you should continue with making a background check to avoid getting scammed.

A list of proved scammer can get found in the menu entry Scammer Exposed.

Offers from trusted and validated brokers can get found in the menu entry Fair Campaign Offers.

 

WakeUpNow Retail Sales
by Rudolf Faix Saturday, February 14, 2015 4:50 AM

WakeUpNow fail to address retail elephant in the room

Retail sales are the lifeblood of any MLM company. Without a steady flow of revenue from people outside of the opportunity purchasing your products, you’re only putting off an inevitable collapse.

A complete lack of retail sales saw WakeUpNow rack up $3.3 million dollars in losses for 2012. This trend continued and in 2013 the company recorded another loss of $4.5 million.

No doubt seeing the writing on the wall, WakeUpNow management introduced mandatory retail quotas in late 2013. Forced onto an affiliate-base that had previously been solely focused on affiliate recruitment, these changes were met with mixed reactions.

Affiliates who had focused on signing up, paying the minimum volume-spend themselves and then recruiting others to do the same were rather unhappy.

The loss figures above are quoted from WakeUpNow’s own 2013 Disclosure statement, which was the focus of a recent BehindMLM article. Titled "WakeUpNow blows through almost $8 million in two years", the article looked at the current situation, what WakeUpNow focused on in the statement and what that likely meant for the business going forward.

In summary, WakeUpNow looked to be pushing more of the same - which I suggested would in turn result in more of the same. That being the ongoing loss of millions of dollars from year to year.

That evidently didn’t go over too well with WakeUpNow corporate, who were quick to deploy their PR agency.

The first response came in less than 24 hours by way of a spammy press-release. Written for no other reason than to be linked back to by over-zealous WakeUpNow affiliates, who for some reason can’t quite seem to grasp WakeUpNow themselves author (or at the very least solicit) such works, declares "WakeUpNow passes 100,000 customer milestone".

Sounds impressive, until you consider there’s no mention of how many of those customers are retail.

Furthermore, the maths doesn’t add up either. How does a company with 100,000 customers still manage to lose $8 million over two years? Even the smallest of spends ($10), translates into millions of dollars in revenue.

Some things need to be considered here. In addition to no mention of retail ratios, WakeUpNow also don’t clarify whether these 100,000 customers are currently active (having made any recent orders), or whether it’s a cumulative number.

Anyway, it is what it is - a bunch of spam that’s both misleading and ultimately irrelevant.

WakeUpNow followed up this response with an email sent to me via BehindMLM’s contact form. Well, not from them per say but from Mike Scerbo of Rose Moser Allyn Public Relations, who appear to be working for them.

Scerbo’s email was anything but personal, containing seemingly recently written spammy press-release that asked me to "consider" the following "key points":
