Lie / TruthThe scammer Anil Sharma is dreaming from hot ice. He tries to make money by using premium phone numbers. He is not the first which tried it, others are already bankrupt or you can visited them in jail.

Lets start with his email first:

Subject: Fwd: IPRN PROCESS DETAIL
To: amigoshealthcare@gmail.com


Hi,
Please find the attachment of process detail and payout rate card.
Regards
Anil

Attached to the email above have been a Word document and an Excel spreadsheet. Both can get downloaded at the end of this article. The content of the word document is copied here:

This is a dial and disconnect process does not require manpower. All these numbers will be provided by us which the center which will be dial through the predictive dialer or soft phones. We are interconnected and have a physical presence in almoast every part of world who are giving us highest out payment in those countries on non-geographic and premium rate number.We provide readymade telecom solution horoscope, live chat, tarot card reader, online voting, quiz shows, game shows and much more.

Technical requirement: There is no such Technical requirement for this project. All you need is a Computer, Inernet with good speed, a predictive dialer or Softphones like eyebeam, zoiper, 3CX etc. These softphones are easily available for free in Google.

How it works: To call these Premium rate numbers you need have Premium VOIP Carriers or Premium Voip Providers. You have to Purchase Minutes from the provider and dial the number. You will get the Payout List which is attached in this email. Get in touch with your Minutes Provider and see if your provider have the minutes for the countries and codes which are mentioned there. Once the center has the access to a particualr destination and starts dialing for the same. The center needs to send the Daily Call Report to us on a regualr basis. The DCR will be provided by the Minutes Provider.

Our requirement: Interested Centers need to dial 10,000 Mins. (Minimum) ( Maximum No Limit) everyday. There should not be any GAP in Dialing.  It is very easy to dial 10,000 Mins. a day with single system. All the 3 Softphones can be easily installed in a single Computer. Eash mentioned Softphones have 6 lines in it. As in result 18 lines can be dialed on one go with single Computer.
For Example: Eyebeam, Zoiper & 3CX has 6 lines each. That makes 18 lines available. If a center dials a particular number 18 times in one go and the duration of call is 60 mins, (Assume) the equation will be: 18 lines  X 60mins =1080 Mins in just 1 call.

Payment Methods:  The only Payment method which is available is WIRE TRANSFER. We provide DAILY PAYOUTS for every destinations mentioned on the attached list. For example:  If a center starts working on Monday, the payment of Monday will be reflected on Wednesday, Tuesdays payment will be reflected on Thursday and so on ( as it takes 48-72 hours for the payment to get reflected.)

Note: As mentioned above there should not be any GAP in dialing proceducre. The center has to buy the minutes in BULK. Since the payment will be reflected on wednesday, In short center has to  buy minutes not only for Monday but also of Tuesday and Wednesday.

Profit Margin: Any center can easily earn $100 a day from a single system,
For Example: The Payout of XYZ country is $0.10 / Min.
The Cost of XYZ country Mins is $0.09 / Min.
The center dials 10,000 Mins a day PAYOUT IS =  10,000 X  $0.10 =  $1000
Cost of 10,000 Mins is = 10,000X $0.09 = $900.
Profit    =  $1000(payout) - $900( Cost of minutes.)
Profit   =   $100.

Interested Centers Need to send an LOI, mentioning name of company, details, desired destinations to dial, interested number of Mins to dial( Minimum 10K). Banking Details for Payment Transfer. 40% advance payment once you are ready with voip to dial.

Good Luck, Wish to hear from you soon.

Summary from the email above: Premium phone numbers are fixed rate phone numbers. The owner of the phone number gets paid for receiving calls by using this numbers. Normally are premium phone numbers only reachable from the domestic area. From abroad you have normally no chance to reach this numbers. You need to find a VoIP provider, which terminates the calls in each of the listed countries or you have to use different VoIP providers  As the premium numbers are fixed price numbers (other would be a payment for the owner of the number not be possible) are the VoIP providers not interested to terminate such calls because they cannot earn something for this minutes. If they are terminating in a country and have the status of a phone provider in this country they need to terminate such numbers for the fixed price given by the regulatory office. If you find a promotion from a VoIP provider with cheaper prices then the fixed price from the regulatory office then you can be sure that the phone number is not reachable. Such phone numbers have a maximum talk time too. The call gets automatically terminated as soon the talk time reached the maximum. For this it would not be possible to generate 1000 minutes with one call.

With other words the scammer likes to lead you with wrong prices for generating money for him or the phone number owner by giving you wrong information.

The scam gets found in the paying list in respect to the cost of calls per minute. As my company is in Austria VoIP provider I have taken as example the Austrian and German numbers from the payout list:

AUSTRIA     43720121254   0,06 EURO
AUSTRIA     43810104373   0,1 EURO
AUSTRIA     43810959284   0,04 EURO
AUSTRIA     43810959419   0,04 EURO
AUSTRIA     43820893044   0,1 EURO
AUSTRIA     43820893096   0,1 EURO
AUSTRIA     43820893121   0,115 EURO
AUSTRIA     43820894131   0,11 EURO
AUSTRIA     43820894363   0,09 EURO
AUSTRIA     43820896134   0,1 EURO
UNITED KINGDOM   447893391620      
POLAND     48700000670   0,07 EURO
POLAND     48720914225   0,03 EURO
GERMANY   4915702486770   0,015 EURO

This payout list is simple wrong. 

All Austrian phone numbers, which are starting with 43720* are not premium phone numbers. This phone numbers are simple VoIP phone numbers. You can call me by using such a phone number from anywhere at the world. There is no payout for the owner of the phone number. The price for calling such a number is normally around € 0.005/minute.

All Austrian phone numbers which are starting with 43810* are premium phone numbers which have a fixed price of € 0.10/minute. The payout for the owner of the phone number varies depending on the volume of calls during a given period.

All Austrian phone number which are starting with 43820* are premium phone numbers which have a fixed price of € 0.20/minute. The payout for the owner of the phone number varies depending on the volume of calls during a given period.

The prices for Austria include 20% VAT, which are normally not applicable for foreign countries outside of the European Union.

All UK phone numbers, which are starting with 4478933 are mobile phone numbers of alternate providers. The price to call such phone number is normally between € 0.13 and € 0.17 per minute.

All German phone numbers, which are starting with 49157* are mobile phone numbers and not premium phone numbers.

All Poland phone numbers, which are starting with 4870* or 4872* are mobile phone numbers and not premium phone numbers.

You see the provided list is completely wrong. I think that the scammer Anil Sharma made big mistakes by inventing this campaign. So you can expect that he will never pay the centers. Don't forget scammer are even too lazy to use their brain and for this they are even making mistakes if the try to use their untrained brain.

Call Center

Different kinds of dialer for call centers
by Rudolf Faix Sunday, March 1, 2015 1:37 PM

Preview Dialer: In Preview mode, the agent starts by himself the next call (semi-automatic preview dialing) on a software-based selection process. The preview dialing ensures that the call center staff can preview the record from the customer database. If the agent triggers the call attempt by himself, he has also opportunity to prepare for the interview and detailed view (for example the contact history). The employee initiates the call either by using software or by manually dialing the telephone number.

Power Dialer: The dialer software automatically dials the next phone connection as soon as the processing of the previous record was completed by the agent. This can be done by the software on the client or on the central server. It can be set with an "overdial factor" that not only one but several telephone lines per agent get to be established. The dialing attempts are doing mostly displayed in the selection preview on the workplace of the agents. The first successful selection is presented. Other successful dialing attempts are distributed by chance on the next available agent. In the calculations involved, that usually not all numbers dialed indicate a dial tone, but might be busy or unavailable for other reasons. 

Predictive Dialer: Even with predictive dialing the telephone numbers of the contact list or database of the company or service provider get selected automatically. In addition, the dialer software monitored by mathematical methods continually in several ways, such as the current availability or the average call duration of each employee, and includes this in the calculation for the selections. The Predictive dialing is thus a forward-looking, self-adjusting dial. The predictive dialer controls the number of dial attempts per agent, taking into account the current and historical accessibility of customers and on the basis of the derived prediction. This not only minimizes the waiting time between two contacts of the agent, but also provides the ideal case that as many calls as possible are made without call attempts must be canceled. Lost connections causing the called phone rings, after picking up is no caller on the other end available or it rings only for a very short time (dropped call). Consumers perceive this as harassing or threatening.

Regulations:

In the UK, Ofcom requires that predictive dialers abandon less than 3% of answered calls on a daily basis. Ofcom also requires that if an agent is not available within 2 seconds the call is considered "abandoned" and an automated message is played. The automated message must identify the company making the call, the purpose of the call, a free phone or basic rate phone number to call back on and must not contain any form of marketing. A phone call to the return number must not be treated by the company as an opportunity to market, but to be removed from the calling list. In the UK "abandoned" calls must not be called back within 72 hours unless there is a dedicated agent available.

In the USA, if someone answers but no agent is available within 2 seconds of the person's greeting, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations consider the call "abandoned" and require the dialer to play a recorded message. The FCC requires that predictive dialers abandon less than 3% of answered calls.

In Canada, the maximum abandon rate is 5%, and calls cannot be made to numbers registered with the National Do Not Call Registry, emergency or health care providers.
