Tech Support Scammer: G. P. Singh - zenfinancial.com
by Rudolf Faix Friday, November 20, 2015 9:04 AM

G. P. SinghUpdate November 21, 2015: Maybe it is not clear enough in the original article, but it does not matter if the scammer is paying the centers or not in this case. The scam starts by generating the calls for the “Tech support”:

  • Offered installation calls for Mcafee, Norton, MS Office, Printer setup
    A customer, which buys a product and which is not working on his site, likes to get his money back. For this reason he will complain the seller or the hotline from the manufacturer of the product and will not call someone where he has even to spend more money than he has spent already. This is called guarantee for a product. The producer or seller of the product needs to get the chance to solve the problem before he has to give the money back to the customer. That is consumer law and for this reason are the offers of the “installation calls” nothing else than scam. Nobody will pay for something where he has a right to get it for free.

  • Blue screen calls
    For the case a blue screen happens is there nowhere shown a phone number to call. Real blue screen cases are happening during system malfunctions based on some hardware or memory defects, failures of drivers or by installing some suspicious software. A blue screen cannot get solved from remote and by using some remote desktop programs because these programs are not functioning during the time a blue screen happens. As you need to try to reproduce the problem will it be hard job to do such work from remote with a normal and technical not interested user on the other end.

  • Pop up calls
    If the pop-up is more than a simple promotion the offer is a scam. Even UK Financial Fraud Action is warning to give untrusted people remote access to their computer. Everybody knows how many people are using pop-up blocker and adblocker. The advertising industry is already crying about percentage of people can get reached. How will in this case a scammer generate enough calls which he likes to sell?

In any case call centers should be aware that participating in a fraud system is a criminal action and gets prosecuted. If you buy calls which are getting generated by malware you’ll be in the first line of investigation because of the money flow from the victim to you. Maybe the real criminal disappears in the meantime and you are the only remaining one which gets prosecuted. If the seller can get found is not so bad for you because in this case you’ll get prosecuted only for the dubious purchase but it can come worse too as everybody likes to protect himself in front of law.

The above facts cannot get discussed away. On the other site G. P. Singh tries to use the revenge postings from other scammers to use against me instead of trying to explain me where I’m wrong in my understanding his offer. The same way all other scammers are acting too. The problem is only that there are no evidences and the postings did not get proved from anyone. Richa Softwaresolution has even tried to fake an email from me but could even not provide mailheaders for it. This try can get found in my article Fake emails which seems to be from Rudolf Faix - rudolffaix@gmail.com - rudolf.faix@wwpa.com. Such an email gets shown at the screenshot below:

 

Original arcticle:

At the LinkedIn profile from G. P. Singh gets shown how a formerly successful businessman has changed to be now a scammer. The statement from G. P. Singh in answer to a comment shows already the scam: "There are no details to send. Decice what you want, place an order, prepay and we deliver the calls. Simple!".

Maybe the scammer does not know that Microsoft, Symantec (Norton), Intel (McAffee) and the manufacturers like Canon, HP, Dell, etc. have their own support hotline where their customers can call free of charge and get support without paying for it. The calls to these support hotlines are even used for improving their products. But it seems that the scammer G. P. Singh has already lost his ability to think and is only interested in getting money for nothing.

For the case that a center owner pays for getting such a kind of calls and he gets really some calls then these calls are getting generated by malware and fake websites. That is a crime which gets prosecuted. In such a case the center owner needs to think how he gets paid for his fraud service. The money flow will make the center owner to a scammer and bring him into the first line of investigation. Here are some examples about tech support scam, which got already prosecuted:

Here is a screenshot from the scam offer:

LinkedIn posting of the scam

Maybe the scammer G. P. Singh needs some money for disappearing because the Stock Fraud Attorney Fitapelli | Kurta is actually searching for more victims of a fraud done by Zen Financial Services and Jonathan Bao:

Update November 21, 2015 - A statement from Mr. G. P. Singh:

Also, ZenFinancial, has nothing to do with the 'Zen Financial Services' which you are referring to, so please remove this post, ASAP

Maybe he is right in this case, but it is his problem to use the same name of a fraud company. As Microsoft and the other companies are not publishing his phone numbers for their support services remains the question how the calls are generated. The offer includes "Blue Screen calls" and "Pop Up calls". As no phone number gets shown at a blue screen it will be very hard for a scammer to find any arguments why someone should call his number if there is no scareware or malware used for generating this kind of calls. Scareware and malware distribution is a crime!

Update November 21, 2015 - A personal message to me from a Facebook member:

I saw your post regarding Mr Singh. He has a lot of campaigns to offer. I am supposedly going to run his payday loan campaign but a supposed to be 1-2 minutes script to run by an agent he wanted the call to run for 15 minutes. Which is very impossible and the pay is $9 only per succesful transfer. Definitely all centers who gets campaigns from him lost. I have never seen an outbound campaign with a very short script to run on a call for 15 mins or more. I think too hes a scammer. You may check his zen blog page for diff campaigns

 

Scammer: BA Communications Inc. - Edward Baptist - tries to get your hard earned money with lies
by Rudolf Faix Friday, October 23, 2015 3:03 PM

BA Communications hides themselves in absolutely anonymity and likes to process your payments. They are using only free services like a website from wix.com, gmail for their emails and even the chat on their website is one of a free service.

Screenshot of the Website from BA Communications

At their website they are writing that they are already “more than 10 years in business”. Maybe they are dreaming since more than 10 years about making a business. With their own promotion they are already proving that they did not even earn enough that they are able to pay the few dollars a year for an own domain. It seems that they even don’t have a valid credit card for registering an own domain, but they like to process your payments you'll receive.

For 10 years in business is even their Alexa ranking and status sheet of their subdomain from wix.com very poor:

Alexa global ranking of bacommunications1.wix.com

With an actual Alexa ranking of 19,862,907 in the global Internet statistic they have maybe one visitor at their homepage during one year. This is a result of the facts that even no search engine is listing them and no other sites are linking to their homepage. With this fact they are proving only that they are not able to do any business and they are not understanding how to make any business.

If we take a look at the provided address on their website: 2722 North Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90031 and compare it with the provided phone number 206-222-7389 then we see in the prefix that the phone number has the area code from Seattle. There is a little distance of 1,135 miles or 1,827 km between this two points. So even if they are picking up the phone then you'll know that they are using a phone forwarding service and are not getting found at the provided address.

At the US Phone Directory we'll find already a few actual complaints and comments about the phone number 206-222-7389.

Edward BaptistAt LinkdedIn we'll find Edward Baptist as a multi talented staff, which is working at the same time for for Worldwide Data and Leads Producers Inc. and BA Communications Inc. I don't know which manager will accept such a double function. If someone is really working for two companies he will run one time in big conflicts.

Edward Baptist
Worldwide "Data and Leads Producers Inc". (National Marketing Manager)
Los Angeles, CaliforniaMarketing und Werbung
Actual: Worldwide Data and Leads Producers Inc., BA Communications Inc.
Before: QSS America,INC
Education: University of California, Los Angeles

Edward Baptist has published October 19, 2015 in LinkedIn Pulse the article (3 DAYS SPECIAL PROMOTION) “70,000 SPECIAL LEADS FOR ONLY $100, 150,000 SPECIAL LEADS FOR ONLY $200 AND 300,000 SPECIAL LEADS FOR ONLY $350”. There he is using the Skype Id allbestdatausa. Today he has been online on Skype and the Skype Resolver returned the IP address 201.247.51.153 which is located at:

IP Address Country Region City ISP
 
201.247.51.153 El Salvador San Salvador San Salvador Cte S.a. De C.v.

With other words the guy likes to be in the U.S., but he is living in El Salvador where the average monthly household income is less than US$ 700. This the reason why he is using the free services from wix.com for the homepage. He can simple not spend some money for hosting and a real domain.

Under these conditions you need to read his offers:

WE HAVE THE BEST SERVICE AND RATES IF YOU WANT TO PROCESS PAYMENTS ONLINE (YOUR PAYMENTS OR YOUR CLIENT´S PAYMENTS)

WE DELIVER YOUR PAYMENT FOLLOWING A “TRANSPARENT, EASY AND FAST PROCEDURE”. WE CAN PROCESS PAYMENTS FROM ANY COUNTRY

We have the BEST PAYMENT GATEWAYS and PAYMENT PROCESSORS WORLDWIDE.

If you have RESTRICTIONS to RECEIVE ONLINE OR BANK PAYMENTS or if you do NOT have the option to RECEIVE PAYMENTS FROM YOUR CLIENTS “WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU”

PROCEDURE is EXTREMELY EASY and FAST and you have your PAYMENTS in HOURS.

WE CHARGE ONE OF THE LOWEST RATES AND PERCENTAGES IN THE WORLDWIDE MARKET AND PROCEDURE IS HIGHLY TRANSPARENT, FAST AND EASY.

To be a payment processor or offering a payment gateway the company needs to have a very good reputation and not hiding themselves in the anonymity of the Internet. I'll recommend everybody, which needs such a service to speak with his bank manager. He will provide you with contacts details of the major credit card companies for making a contract.

Everybody, who is getting scammed by taking such an offer, is guilty by himself if he get scammed. You should make in any case a background check about your future business partner. With such business partners like BA Communications Inc., Worldwide "Data and Leads Producers Inc" and Edward Baptist you can only make business by asking for an up-front payment and not on a post paid base.

The Marketing Source - Robbie Middleton - sent a bad joke instead of a proof
by Rudolf Faix Monday, September 7, 2015 1:57 AM

In each of the articles about the Caribbean Cruise Line (CCL) – Virtual Voice Technology (VVT) is getting found that the center is guilty by themselves if they are accepting the conditions from The Marketing Source. Business is a risk and not a sandpit where nothing can happen. Even in the email from Robbie Middleton is stated gets found that this campaign “is a VERY tough campaign with tight margins”.

The campaign gets offered as none voice campaign where the agent does not need to speak. That is nothing else than a misleading promotion, because if we take a look at the article “FTC Statement Virtual Voice Technology - CallAssistant, L.C. - submitted by The Marketing Source - Vance Vogel” then we can read that the agent is free in his choice to speak or playing prerecorded messages. The background of the FTC-rule is that it has to be a life agent to be available that the live agent has to speak with the called one if a recording is not available for answering a specific question. It will be seldom happen, but it can happen.

The statement that only Lars is offering the CCL campaign is not correct. Robbie Middleton has simple forgotten that he is offering the campaign at BPO Friends by himself too. Everybody can be sure that other companies have voice systems too, which are conform to the FTC rules.  TMS is not the only company, which has access to such a system. It is only used as an argument for their rip-off. US$ 200/week system costs + VoIP (up to $ 275) for 12 seats (24 connections) are nothing else than profiteering.

We have built for an Austrian satellite TV broadcaster a similar system with click to dial, manual selection of prerecordings and a few more features like play and win, live quiz, dating, shopping, etc. in a multi-language system (German, English, French, Spanish, Polnish), for € 1,450 (~US$ 1,615) including server hardware. This system has assigned 2,200 phone numbers, on this system are working 250 agents and a few full automated services like every 50th caller goes live into the studio, each 100th caller is winning a price, etc. at the same time.

It is not forbidden to make a bad deal. Everybody, who accepting a bad deal, is guilty by himself if he lose money in such a case. It is only from a company expected to recognize a good and a bad deal. If a company defends such a bad deal then such a company is in my opinion very suspect and there seems to be a reason why they are defending such a bad deal. Mostly is the reason that they are earning by themselves.

The construction of the included proof from the email shows more that it is a fake instead of a proof.  I think that CCL and TMS have enough experience in front of the law court collected to know how a proof has to look like. In this case the proof consists of pictures (one company header, and one picture for each “invoice” line), which seems to be from different sources. Such a construction is nowhere accepted as a proof for anything. All necessary parts for an official invoice are missing. It seems even to be a secret to whom the invoice got sent.

In a fair and transparent business is it usage that as soon as a customer likes to use his own or rented systems has the customer to pay the bill for it. How the customer makes his calculation in this case is the problem of the customer and not the problem of the service provider. Already the promotion of the campaign is misleading because there is written “The base rate is $ 2.25 per transfer with additional performance incentives based on quality” (BPO Friends - Robbie Middleton, .pdf (187.38 kb)). In such a case the rate cannot be lower than $ 2.25 for the >60 seconds transfer, but if we take a look at the document VVT CPD Explanation.docx (17.84 kb) we see that the base rate can be lower too.

The email from Robbie Middleton in reaction to my article "Slavery offer: CCL VVT none Voice or Semi-Voice campaign - The Marketing Source - Vance Vogel":

Rudolph,

What your source neglected to tell you is that there is a list of requirements VVT sends centers at the time of campaign implementation and VVT makes NO claims that this is an easy campaign at any time.  VVT does not even recruit centers at all.  Every center VVt have has either approached VVT via word of mouth or through Lars.  Lars is the ONLY approved broker for the VVT campaign.  VVT actually tell the centers that this is a VERY tough campaign with tight margins and very clearly state all charges.  99% of all center that fail, do so because they do not follow our guidelines.  It is absolutely, positively cheaper and easier to dial using the centers own VOIP and dialer, unfortunately this is ILLEGAL per the TCPA laws as well as infractions of the Telemarketing Sales Rule that would undoubtedly occur if the call centers were not regulated.    TMS and/or VVT receives no profit Login and VOIP charges.  I have copied the most recent invoice for logins associated with 4 centers Lars has referred and feel free to confirm the same with the company that invoices us as well as Lars.  This is the actual amount deducted from the centers commissions and not a penny more.  You can see that VVT IS CHARGED $10/login.  VVT pre-pays this expense on behalf of the centers so they do not have any up-front expense of their own.  VVT provides Leads, VOIP and Logins so they can LAUNCH without investing ANY of their own money.    VVT then deducts this Login and VOIP expense from the centers earned commissions.  There is no charge for leads.  We disperse the amount VVT loads each for VOIP each week evenly amongst all centers based on their percentage of total logins.  We do not profit from this expense either.  Regarding “CPD” and what your source failed to tell you is that VVT is paid by the cruise line on a CPD (Cost Per Deal) basis.  Each centers quality is tracked separately and a quantitative measure of quality is attached to their transfers in terms of “CPD”.  We cannot let centers send calls “at will” with no concern for quality as many of them (even with the CPD +/- structure in place) send calls with no customer on the line, transfer answering machines, transfer customers that requested DNC, etc….. I will send you the complete VVT launch e-mail just as I would a prospective center so you can see the truth.  The fact that VVT must implement so many rules and guidelines is indeed most unfortunate, but don’t let your source fool you into thinking we are “screwing” them.  Rules and guidelines are in place to adhere to all applicable laws and to protect VVT from unethical centers.  We have centers that have been doing the campaign for more than 3 years now and while it isn’t easy, it CAN be profitable when guidelines are adhered to. 

The above email had the following five pictures included as shown belown:

The invoice header seems to be a fake because I did not find until now one IT company frome the U.S.

  • where the office phone number is hidden for privacy reasons from the public phone directory

  • where the office phone number is assigned to Google voice

  • where tel2name.com gives the result: 727-753-9323 - Deane Arteaga Wisteria Cir New Port Richey, Florida instead of Sun Bridge Systems LLC.

  • which writes their own domain name in the heaer of the invoice wrong
    (subbridgesystems.com instead of sunbridgesystems.com)

  • which needs to hide the ownership of their domain behind a privacy service

  • which makes since 2 years and 5 months promotions at her homepage for their registrar Godaddy

  • which has since 2 years and 5 months a homepage with the amazing content
    Screenshot from the homepage of sunbridgesystems.com

  • Buzzfile.com says about SUN BRIDGE SYSTEMS LLC:
    Sun Bridge Systems is located in Oldsmar, Florida. This organization primarily operates in the Business Services, nec business / industry within the Business Services sector. This organization has been operating for approximately 2 years. Sun Bridge Systems is estimated to generate $ 49,000 in annual revenues, and employs approximately 1 people at this single location.

SUN BRIDGE SYSTEMS, LLC is really a company and is listed at Floridas Department of State Division of Corporations (.pdf (119.20 kb)). The company got founded on March 11, 2013 at 5520 Rio Vista Dr., Clearwater, FL. 33760 (Link, .pdf (43.19 kb)) and relocated on April 1, 2014 to 518 Lakewood Dr., Oldsmar, FL 34677 (Link, .pdf (3.30 kb)).

Interesting is that LookUpBear (.pdf (118.69 kb)) tell us that the company SUN BRIDGE SYSTEMS, LLC is listed "under the heading Construction/Contractors which includes businesses that may offer home improvement construction, home construction, roofers, manufacturing of building materials". I know that we all would search for a telcommunications company in exactly this category!

Fraud and Scam

Scammer: Anil Sharma - International Premium Numbers - as5167021@gmail.com
by Rudolf Faix Friday, June 26, 2015 10:25 AM

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:

From: Anil Sharma <as5167021@gmail.com>
Date: Tue, Jun 9, 2015 at 2:18 PM
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.
