Scammer: Greevio Techno Solutions Pvt. Ltd. - G. PRADEEP KUMAR - gtspl.in
by Rudolf Faix Wednesday, August 26, 2015 12:38 PM

Logo Greevio Techno Solutions PVT LTDThe scammer Greevio Techno Solutions Pvt. Ltd. - G. PRADEEP KUMAR - gtspl.in proves with his offer that he does not have any contract with a client. Everybody knows already what will happen if he gives money to an Indian scammer. The scammer will disappear together with the money and the center will get nothing in return for it. The police and the law system in India will do nothing against the scammer. For this reasons even clients are already rejecting to make any business with any company located in India.

A client will never search for an offshore outsourcing broker abroad. He will contact someone which operating in his country otherwise he could hire a call center direct too. In such a case he would even save the salary for the broker or consultant.

Such stupid campaign offers as from the scammer Greevio Techno Solutions Pvt. Ltd. - G. PRADEEP KUMAR are not making the situation better. This idiot even does not know that the electricity billing is in the traditional outsourcing countries already done since more than 40 years by using computers. It seems that he has been under drugs by inventing this campaign because he has written in the subject of the email UK EB Form Filling Process and inside the email UK, US, Canada Electricity Bill Data transcription process. It seems that the scammer G. Pradeep Kumar has never learned to use his brain and he has never seen a school from inside.

In any case you can be 100% sure that there is no and will never be any Electricity Bill Data transcription process from UK, US, CANADA or Australia available! Like each other scammer G. Pradeep Kumar does not like to provide a manhunt picture by himself.

The email with the offer from Greevio Techno Solutions Pvt. Ltd.:

Update December 10, 2015: Today I received from Pradeep Kumar the following email to both of my email addresses:

Dear Rudolf Faix,

Really shock seeing to you comments upon the Post in which you have judged and projected me with your unwanted comments and meaningless comments with out even knowing whom we are and what we are and what business we are involved in.

We are not consultants and we do not outsource any Projects, infact we are looking for BPO projects.

I really do not understand that where have you find this posting, i have not mailed any such mail or posting in the month of August or before that or after that. That Project that was mentioned in the post was a failure Project for ours, Apart we have also stop access to the mail id mentioned in the post since June 2015 and also lodged complaint against the same since the mail was hacked by someone in the month of June 2015.

Its really disgusting to see the post in which you have projected me completely wrong without knowing anything about me, my company and my Business, just by an unofficial mail without knowing the truth you posted this blog and spoiling our businesses.

I request you to delete the post that you have posted in the blog so that my name does not get spoiled unwanted among my clients, also i have many inquiries from my client for the past few days. So kindly do not indirectly block my business by posting such posts in blogs without knowing anything about us properly.

Kindly delete the post sooner.

For the case that they have stopped the email-id in June, how it comes that emails got sent on August 26? For the case they deleted the email then they are guilty by themselves if someone other registered exactly the same email address. As Greevio is using a free service for their email they failed their duties of commercial care for the case someone else opened their email account after deletion or hacked the email account, what does not make them more trustful. Why they did not send out any excuse for the case that the email account got really hacked? The sent emails are normally available in the sent folder.

The email address of the email is matching with the email address in their domain registration. In such a case Greevio has to take care that their accounts are not getting hacked. Simple sending out emails and telling afterwards that the account got hacked is not really the way how such problems can get solved. In such a case they have to make investigations and file a case at the law court. The authorities have the possibility to get the logfiles where the IP address is written from where the account got accessed. With the IP address the "hacker" can get located.

Not one hacker has any interest to send out campaign offers under the name of another company. What will happen if the future customer makes a call instead of mailing back. Such a process is too risky for a hacker, because he has the risk during the money transfer that he can fallen into a trap from the police.

Hackers of the kind like mr. Kumar likes to make us to believe are normally found in his own direct environment of the victim. Such hackers can get easily identified.

Another possibility and plausible explanation would be that someone has faked the offer. Such a person can get found in the direct environment from mr. Kumar too. Such a person is normally an enemy of the victim and each email can get tracked back to the sender by using the logfiles. In any case need mr. Kumar file a case at the authorities in this case and wait for judgement for updating the post with the true story. If he has nothing to hide then he will be interested to find the real guilty one, file a case and forward a copy of the judgement to me for publishing it.

It does not help a victim to delete his domain in such a case. It even does not make any sense to delete a domain 11 months before the expiration date. Domains are normally valid for one year. Someone, which likes to change his domain name, knows this already at the time when he needs to extend his domain subscription, because he does not get from the domain fees any money back.

If mr. Kumar is a real business man, which is running a center, then he would know about the consumer data protection law from the traditional outsourcing countries, which is not new - it older than 10 years. Why in this case he is offering "Medical Transcription/ Billing/ Coding", "Data Entry", "Back Office", "Data Conversion Services", "Inbound/ Outbound Customer Support/Care", etc. on his website?

How Greevio can offer a "Mailing Support" if they are not able to keep hackers away from their own accounts?

At his domain registry mr. Kumar is showing that he even does not know the difference between a city and a street. It is nice from the ICANN that everybody can file a complain about it.

Which client will have trust into such a company?

 

Scammer Wesley Jon Pollard - outoftheboxsolutions.weebly.com - dexterity-leads.com - rollingdice.in
by Rudolf Faix Tuesday, August 25, 2015 7:56 AM

Wesley Jon PollardWesley Jon Pollard seems to be a scammer, but everybody, who’s got scammed from him, is guilty by himself. Wesley Jon Pollard could not show his face in the social networks and he did not have an own domain. He used the free hosting service from weebly for offering his scam campaigns. These people who have got scammed did not make their homework and there has even been nothing for making a background check. Their own greediness by hunting for a campaign has been the reason for their problems now.

At his LinkedIn account from Wesley Jon Pollard we’ll find a recommendation from a LinkedIn member Barry Bermudez. As Barry Bermudez has given him a recommendation is now the question open if Barry Bermudez is a partner in crime or not?

Updated August 28, 2015 (For this part are updates available take a look at the updates at the end of this article): Another partner in crime can be Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano (no public profile - see the pdf at the end of this report). Wesley Jon Pollard has given her a recommendation beginning with the words “Maria was recently appointed Director with us due to certain qualities she can bring on board that benefit our clients from all around the world ….”. This shows that she has been a director and a decision maker in the organization of Wesley Jon Pollard.

Maria was recently appointed Director with us due to certain qualities she can bring on board that benefit our clients from all around the world. She came highly recommended by a present client who had previously worked very closely with her.

She is very detailed orientated, committed and hard working when it comes to getting clients what they need and always places their first, addressing areas that other brokers cannot offer.

Very unique in many ways, we are very delighted to have Maria on board as a director and look forward to seeing her career being even more successful with us.

Another member found out that the name Wesley Pollard is used at the site http://dexterity-leads.com. It can be that Wesley Pollard is coming active again. The domain dexterity-leads.com got registered in Pakistan:

We cannot be sure that Wesley Jon Pollard is active at the site registered in Pakistan, but on the site we find the names Kristy Beede, Wesley Pollard and Scott Bigelow (the name of a wrestler died January 19, 2007). You can observe that not one of these profiles has a picture. Scammers don't like to provide a manhunt picture by themselves.

As we see is the site registered in Pakistan and the provided addresses on the site are:

OBS, Portman Square, Marylebone, W1H. UK
OBS House, Margarita Heights, Batangas, PH. 4200 Tel: +63091506110390
OBS House, Taconic Road, Greenwich CT 06831 USA. Tel: (860) 377-1909

The UK address does not have any house and phone number. This address is incomplete and seems to got invented.

The US address is incomplete too. If you are using Google maps and take a look at the satellite pictures than you see that this is a forest area where you don't find any named houses.

Wesley Jon Pollard is active with his U.S. phone number on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/jon.pollard.980), LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/dex-terity/100/53a/179) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/DexterityLeads). He is offering his scams via https://dexterityleads.wordpress.com/.

The Philippian address from Bantangas is invented too and the phone number is wrong written. Correct written is the phone number +639156110390. This phone number got used from Wesley Jon Pollard in his LinkedIn Pulse postings:

Updates August 26, 2015

Bruce Young informed me about Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano:

Maria was scammed too Rudolf, she was made and led to believe by Wes too, victims as well. For Barry, Wes, was with his legit company.

Sim Antonio informed me about Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano:

Its just that this Maria is clean, she was a victim as well.

As for Maria, I think she is not aware, what she told me as we did communicate is that she removed all her connections with Wes

I can vouch for you she is clean, she is a victim as well. She is pursuing Wes as well.

Maria was able to removed Wesley's recommendation . Please Sir, she is absolutely a victim here of Wesley as well.

Christopher Caudle sent me the following email:

Hi ref the post some information for you.

Ref Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano I have been assisting in the hunt for Wesley for a long time but ref Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano she has never been nor is a director for any of his companies, I do know that Wesley put all these recommendations on without her knowledge, and she has been trying to get hold of Wesley ever since to have it removed. She does not have a contract with Wesley and she is a freelancer and is NOT employed by the company as a director. Wesley used her to send out all his documents, contracts etc to centres. So i hope you can correct the post made about her as its not true.

I would say that your criticism of centre owners are unjust in this case, as they did due diligence and everyone they spoke to seemed to point to Wesley's out of the box company as being ok.

As a former friend of Wesley (I am no more since this) I can say that as an ex police officer in the uk, that he has committed fraud and theft against centres. Currently the police are fully aware and are acting to make an arrest soon.

So you know how this started I paste below a copy of the email I sent to the Philippine police regarding Wesley, which has finally led to where we are today after a long and exhaustive investigation by me, obtaining contacts he knows, obtaining all phone numbers of him, and his home address.

I think you are doing a fantastic job keep up the good work, I will give you updates as and when i hear from the police via Maria who has been helping me track Wesley as she is as shocked as everyone is more so.

Attached photo of Wesley Jon Pollard with his wife and son.

Dear Sir,

I wish to report Wesley Jon Pollard owner of Out of the Box solutions, as missing presumed kidnaped, since 7th July 2015.

The circumstances around his disappearance are as follows.

I have known Wesley Jon Pollard for many years. He lives in the Philippines and owns the company mentioned, which has a large number of important clients on his books. He arranges call centres for his clients, and makes a point of visiting each one to vet the company and ensure their procedures match their application. His mother is Jacqui Pereira, his sister is Corinna Pollard and he has a daughter Mercedes Pollard.

His itinerary was as follows:-

UK left on 3rd July for Philippines

Arrived Philippines on 5th July

Philippines left on 8th July at 15:05 to Malaysia arriving 18:40

Malaysia left on 8th July at 22:10 to Bangalore India arriving 23:40
Staying at Oberi Hotel

Call made by centre owner Naveen Kumar to Wesley on +639156110390 who answered, Mr Naveen Kumar asked if they should meet, Wesley said no he was tired and he was going to sleep, claiming he was in the Oberi hotel.

Bangalore left on 10th July at 07:50 to Delhi arriving 10:35

Delhi left on 10th July at 11:10 to Dehradul arriving 12 noon.
Staying at JW Marriot hotel

13th July visits to a number of centres in Dehradul
14th July staying in same hotel JW Marriot.

Dehradul left on 15th July at 19:40 to Delhi arriving at 20.30

Staying at Leela Palace Hotel

15th July until 21st July staying in Delhi

22nd July left 10:00 to Mumbai arriving at 12:15
Staying at JW Marriot hotel

Was supposed to meet Naveen Kumar as he was to meet at the centre at 9am, Mr Naveen called him and asked shall he pick him up, to which Wesley said no I have my own arrangement.
Wesley did not show up

Wesley was supposed to be in Mumbai until 27th.

I have checked with all hotels and he neither stayed at the hotels nor made any reservations. His laptop is on and he is showing as away on skype, this is unusual when he goes away he always shows offline. Also he is not answering his mobile, which is again unusual, as he is always contactable. He has not been on his Facebook page since 7th July and we cannot make any contact with him whatsoever.

It is my opinion having served for 10 years with the British Police (now retired) that Wesley Jon Pollard was not in India and never arrived there, I do not believe he was in Malaysia either, and that he is somewhere in the Philippines possibly kidnapped.

He did on a call when drunk one day say to his representative, that he had a million in the bank, this could easily have been overheard, but this is conjecture.

As he still is missing and his clients and centres are very worried about their contracts, I have taken over to try to help Maria Reburiano save his business from problems and I am talking with clients and centres to assure them that Wesley will contact them soon.

I therefore formally request that this case is looked into as a missing person possibly kidnapped, and that appropriate resources are engaged to find Wesley and ensure his safety and safe return.

Update September 8, 2015:

Christopher Caudle likes to get some more publicity in this case and tried to impress me with the following statements on Skype:

From a legal standpoint as it can still be clearly read it would come under slander and libel, as it was not true, the hosting company would also be liable as well. I'm only just saying as I was in the police for 10 years so I know. I would not want to see maria take it down a legal route, which might happen anyway if she ended up harming herself because of all this. Do let me know what you think Rudolf.

That is exactly what everbody likes to read if he is opening Skype. The problem is only that Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano did not only accept the recommendation, where she got called to be a director from Wesley John Pollard, she called herself in her LinkedIn profile "Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano. Title: Director for Sales / BPO (Philippines) at Out of the Box Solutions". As much as I like to help her for the reason that she has tried to help the scammed ones to find Wesley John Pollard, but she has chosen exactly the wrong way for getting help.

The Internet is viral and it is not so easy to get something out of the Internet as many services are archiving the contents. Even Google still lists sites from her publishing, which got already deleted from the source. In her own case you'll find still the entries in Google:
Screenshot Google where Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano calls herself Director of Sales from Out of the Box Solutions

Interesting is in any case that we not only find at Eynsham online an entry where he describes himself as “I served the village as a Section Officer (Sgt) for Thames Valley Police Special Constabulary for 10 years, and started the first Eynsham foot patrols.”, we find an entry at Campaignprovider.com a page with the title “lord chris caudle's Page” (.pdf (197.20 kb)). The page has the first entry from February 2, 2012 (.pdf (180.64 kb)) and the last entry from September 10, 2014. At Christopher Caudle's LinkedIn profile (.pdf (459.36 kb)) does not get anything found about his work as Section Officer. At his LinkedIn profile are only jobs as CEO and chairman listed. It seems that Christopher Caudle is really a multi talent.

Christopher Caudle seems to have a problem with his elf-esteem and likes to title himself to be a Lord. The definition of the British title Lord can get found in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. However the name of Christopher Caudle does not get found in the Members of the UK House of Lords directory.
Christopher Caudle titles himself as Lord Caudle

I don’t know the real background why Christopher Caudle stands up in this way for Maria. Anyone can make his thoughts by himself about the reasons. My opinion is that he thinks to know everything and does not accept any technical arguments from others. He knows the meaning of "it seems to be" otherwise he would not call in his Facebook postings for self-justice, he would use the official and legal way to file his complaints.

I’m sorry for Maria’s publicity in this case and everybody shall accept that she tries to help in the case against Wesley John Pollard. Please don't judge her for her past in this case. Maybe she got cheated too. Everybody is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty and even in the case she get's found guilty for something in this case, is active repentance an extenuation.

A very stupid scammer: Sun Step Infotech Pvt Ltd - Parikshit Nayak
by Rudolf Faix Wednesday, August 12, 2015 4:49 PM

Sun Step Infotech Pvt LtdScammers are lazy. They are even too lazy to use their brain. For this is it easy to identify them. In this case Parikshit Nayak (Facebook profile, LinkedIn profile) director from Sun Step Infotech Pvt Ltd has copied campaigns from Deep Blue Marketing and offered them with huge upfront fees to other centers. He has been thinking that he is clever and did not offer the campaign at the social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.).

Parikshit Nayak director of Sun Step Infotech Pvt LtdThe upfront fee has been for one center too high and this center tried to bypass the scammer by going into contact with the client directly. As Deep Blue Marketing has an exclusive contract with the client the client forwarded the offer to Deep Blue Marketing (PRF From Sunstep Infotech Pvt Ltd.pdf (106.10 kb)).

Parikshit Nayak and of Sun Step Infotech Pvt Ltd have no contract with the client or with Deep Blue Marketing. For this reason Parikshit Nayak and of Sun Step Infotech Pvt Ltd has not rights on the offered campaign. As Parikshit Nayak and of Sun Step Infotech Pvt Ltd have offered the campaign from the cruiselines is their behavior simple a criminal action. In a civilized culture gets such a fraud prosecuted in front of the law court and convicted persons are not considered trustworthy and therefore can not exercise a directorship of a company.

Offering something without owning it is not only a fraud which gets prosecuted in front of a criminal court. In this case it even destroys the reputation of the client. This is a second case which gets prosecuted in front of a civil court and a commercial court, because of the fraud done by the company SunStep Infotech Pvt Ltd and in person of Parikshit Nayak.

A screenshot of the offer sent out from SunStep Infotech Pvt Ltd. It shows the campaign offer, which got found in original and with all conditions at "CCL VVT (VIRTULY VOICE TECHNOLOGY) NOONE VOICE AVATAR CAMPAIGN":

Screenshot Sun Step Infotech Pvt Ltd offer

It is nice from the scammer to print it with his company information. This makes it easier for the authorities to file a case against the company. At the provided homepage address we'll find the following information about the responsibility:

Contact Person: Mr. Parikshit Nayak

Parikshit Nayak seems not only to have an identity problem - he has a problem with women too. He is searching under the name Rahul Agee by using the same phone number as for the call center scam at vivastreet.co.in for girl friends:

Scammer: shrsolution.org - Smart Human Resource Solution Pvt. Ltd. - Vikram Pratap Singh
by Rudolf Faix Saturday, May 30, 2015 10:07 AM

Smart Human Resource Solution Pvt. Ltd.It seems that the scammer Vikram Pratap Singh with his Smart Human Resource Solution Pvt. Ltd. company (shrsolution.org) is already running out of money and is planning to leave his actual area. For this he is offering unbelievable campaigns. As more a scammer needs money as more unbelievable are their offers.

We know Vikram Pratap Singh already from SCISOLUTIONS.US, ALDIABLOS.US and ALDIABLOS.COM.

Let's start with their email - I have only removed the date and the receipient. We see already at the email the laziness of a scammer. 'He even forgot to remove the "FW:" from the subject line and to make the email personal addressed:

From: Varnika Khosla <varnika.k@shrsolution.org>
Subject: FW: Inbound project details


Hello Sir/Mam,

We have introduced various Inbound projects with high payout. I am hereby attaching the project details. Please provide your contact no./Skype ID if you are interested.

Thanking You.


Regards,
Varnika Khosla
Business Development Manager
Smart Human Resource Solution Pvt. Ltd.
Skype ID: varnika.khosla803

At the offer I have marked the parts red, which are proving the scam:

BRITISH TELECOM INBOUND PROCESS
Nature of work: Telecom Customer Care Inbound
Payouts: GBP 18 per seat per hour
Payment cycle: Biweekly
Payment mode: Bank wire only
Shift: 8am to 6pm (GMT)
Invoicing hours: 9 hours operational
No. of seats: 30 (Only 1 shift)
Working days: Monday to Sunday
Advance billing: 1st biweekly
Training: Onsite (Client visit)
Male/Female ratio: 2:8
CONSULTANCY CHARGES: Rs. 5,00,000/-
NEW CENTERS CAN APPLY.
TECH REQUIREMENT:
INTERNET REQUIREMENT: LEASE LINE OF 4 MBPS WITH BACK UP.
FIREWALL, DELL/IBM SERVER, SYSTEM: MINIMUM CORE 2 DUO/ QUAD CORE.
CENTERS IN SOUTH EAST ASIA (NO PHILIPPINES).
AGENTS SHOULD BE IN NEUTRAL UK ACCENT.
ATTRITION SHOULD NOT EXCEED 5% ANNUALLY.
FINAL SCREENING OF AGENTS BY UK BASED CLIENT.
ONLY 3 SLOTS AVAILABLE FOR 2015.

For the price of GBP 18 (US$ 27.54, € 25.10) per agent and hour nobody will hire an offshore call center. For this price he can get in the own country too. It seems that Vikram Pratap Singh is very much in need of money, that he makes such an unbelievable offer. He hopes that some center owner is so greedy and go into his trap.

Consumer data in the European Union are protected by law. For this they cannot get exported or given access to someone outside of the European Union. How a call center will be able to help calling customers if they have not access to customer data? As the British Telecom does not win something by outsourcing - see the hourly offer - why shall they take the risk for getting prosecuted by law?

Consultancy charges are only proving that Vikram Pratap Singh does not have any contract with the client British Telecom. The consultancy charges are his only income from the scam.

With the hardware requirements he likes only to make himself important. As telephony software is mostly running under Linux are the named products not really all supported. It depends on the chipset and on the available drivers.

 

The second offer is nothing better than the first one. Additional to the consultancy charges he likes to get a monthly royalty in the high of the salary from 1 and a half agent. With this offer proves Vikram Pratap Singh that he is even too lazy for using his brain:

CELEBRITY MANAGEMENT INBOUND
An India based event management company is looking for the centres who can manage their work of celebrity management. Centre need to take schedule of event and forward the requirement to the respective celeb managing team. Celebrities will be from Bollywood and TV Series.
Nature: Online Appointment Setting
Slots: 3 (English mandatory) (Only Urban location centres may apply)
Pay-Out: INR 34500/- per agent per month
Payment Cycle: Monthly
Payment mode: Bank Management
Shift Time: 10AM to 7PM (Only 8 hours per shift to be billed)
Time Zone: Indian Standard Time
Working Days: 7 Days a week
Agents per shift: (30)
Male/Female ratio: 3:7
Contract Period: 2 years
Consultancy charges: Rs. 5,00,000/-
Advance Billing: One month
Eligibility Criteria:
- DoT/OSP License
- Balance Sheet of at least 1 year
- 6 months Banking
- Experienced in Voice Project (any)
TAT: 30 days to 45 days from the date of MoU
Steps of going Live:
1. Profile Selection
2. Conference call with Management team
3. Questionnaires
4. Online Screening
5. SLA sign up in the centre
6. Training Onsite/Online
7. Mock call tests
8. Live Going
Royalty: 5% from every billing. (NDA will be signed for that)

The name "event management company" says already that such a company manages events and not celebrities. Celebrities are hired for some events and not managed from such a company.Appointments with celebrities are done with the manager of the celebrity.

If a monthly salary if offered, then it does not make any sense to write that 8 hours per day are billable, The monthly salary does not change in this case. Maybe Vikram Pratap Singh is not able to express himself in English?

The scammer likes to know from the balance sheet and 6 months of banking statements how much he can withdraw from the company. Such a requirement is in the international business not normal. Banking statements are a secret. Balance sheets have to get published from some companies.

 

The third offer of the scammer Vikram Pratap Singh gives me the impression that flats and properties are getting in India faster traded then groceries. By inventing this campaign has Vikram Pratap Singh outdone himself. The client likes to take additional to the high payment for the agents the center expenses like electric bill, Internet connection, etc. Maybe Vikram Pratap Singh has been drunk or into drugs by making this offer. I'm only missing that the client pays the tax and a salary for the center owner:

REAL ESTATE DOMESTIC INBOUND
MH: 2 Slots, GJ:1 Slot, AP/TG: 1 Slot, WB: 1 Slot, KA: 1 Slot.
Minimum 35 Seats Each Slot.
Project details as follows.
Centers can take minimum 35 seats
INR 35000+ST /month/agent
8hr login time/shift
CONTRACT: 2 Years
2 team head for 35 agents
INR 40000/pm fixed pay for each team leader.
2 Quality persons for 35seats (INR 38000 each)
Project manager -1 (INR 45000)
The other sub staff or admin/HR payments will not be taken care.
Monthly electricity, iplc bill, internet bill, cab expenses, cafeteria expenses will be covered by client. You have to produce proper invoice for it.
All the above payments will be given to you and you may fix any salary for your staffs.
You have to arrange accommodation for one quality analyzer from client office who will stay with you for 3 months. The bill will be paid by client; you just need to set his accommodation as he is new to country.
If the center has all the above qualities with good infrastructure, technical, and agents means they are eligible for this process
Advance amount of one month billing will be provided on the day of going alive.
Payments and Sign Up details:
Consultancy Charges: Rs. 5,00,000/-
Royalty: - 5%
One month advance payout is there.
Centers are already running in MUMBAI.
Sign up will be with direct end client.
If you are ok for the terms please mail me your company documents. PPT of your company profile, DOT license, Registration Certificate, STPI (optional), NASCOM (optional), CENTER PICTURES and NETWORKING CHART
Briefing the center experience what they are in to and what all the process they run. (Imp point doesn’t give wrong information’s. Let us know genuinely what a experience you have if fresher also ok)

It seems that the quality analyzer is Vikram Pratap Singh by himself. Maybe he needs to hide himself from the police, Interpol, his creditor or from his scammed victims. For this he needs to change from time to time his living area.

Scammer: Gaby Anderson - stanfordonlinecourses.com
by Rudolf Faix Friday, May 22, 2015 5:53 AM

Each Scammer makes mistakes. Even if they invest a little bit into their scam they are making mistakes. So Gaby Anderson with stanfordonlinecourses.com is making mistakes.

Gaby AndersonHis first mistake is his profile picture. He uses the profile picture of a photo model, which gets found at Google on 436 search pages. The original picture gets found at questmarketing.org. He has used this profile picture on his profile at LinkedIn and Facebook [2016-02-25: Link removed as the Facebook profile under https://www.facebook.com/ganderson84?fref=nf already not exists]. He deleted already the picture from his LinkedIn profile.

The Stanford University has no reason to hide their domain registration by using a proxy service, They are proud about their name and they are even hosting their servers and services by themselves. Their online courses are hosted at http://online.stanford.edu/ This gets shown if we take a look at the domain registry data for stanford.edu:

As we know that scammer are lazy gets the website http://www.stanfordonlinecourses.com [2016-02-25: Link removed as the domain standfordonlinecourses.com already not exists] forwarded to https://lagunita.stanford.edu.

Let's take a look at Gaby Andersons offer in Facebook:

Facebook offer from Gaby Anderson

-Inbound / Outbound EDU Campaign-
Hourly Rate: $20/hour/agent
Payment Cycle: Weekly
Program Description: Take a call from students who's interested enrolling in college
Leads: Included
Dialer: Included
Voip: Included
We prefer centers in Philippines!
For more info you can contact me at:
Email : ganderson@stanfordonlinecourses.com
Skype : stanford.ganderson

You can expect, that nobody from USA will outsource for $20/hour/agent. Nobody likes to pay more then absolute necessary. In the campaign detail description is even written: $20.00/hour with $3.00/hour increase after 3 months of service. For this money nobody will hire an offshore call center. He can have it for the same price in the USA too.

As written in the announcement the scammer is preferring call centers from the Philippines. I got forwarded a Skype communication from Gaby Anderson:

Hello Mr.Anderson
[5/21/2015 10:55:34 PM] Hamza Ali Khan: Do you still have that inbound campaign?
[4:01:02 AM] Gaby Anderson: Yes
[4:01:30 AM] Hamza Ali Khan: Can you send me the details to my email please?
[4:01:40 AM] Hamza Ali Khan: hamzaalikhan7@gmail.com
[4:01:47 AM] ***  ***
[4:08:27 AM] Hamza Ali Khan: Great!
[4:09:29 AM] Hamza Ali Khan: So are you hiring on individual basis or call centers only?
[4:09:51 AM] Gaby Anderson: CAllCenter
[4:09:58 AM] Hamza Ali Khan: Wonderful!
[4:10:14 AM] Hamza Ali Khan: Please visit our site for the company profile smile emoticon
[4:10:26 AM] Hamza Ali Khan:
[4:12:05 AM] Hamza Ali Khan: we have been working with a number of overseas clients for last 8 years.
[4:15:03 AM] Hamza Ali Khan: Let me know what will be the process moving forward.
[4:16:44 AM] Gaby Anderson: Let me Tell you Directly before i pass you to my campaign manager CALLCENTER IN INDIA BANGLADESH PAKISTAN we require them to have a safety deposit with us justy to be sure they would comply to the job

Exactly here is the scam. A safety deposit has to receive the center and not the broker. The center is doing the work. The broker or the client has no risk especially if the provide the phone system and VoIP minutes. In this case they are able to stop a center even without any notice. For this the safety deposit is nothing else than a big SCAM.
