Offshore Outsourcing & Scammer

Funny - one scammer likes to verify other scammers - vverify.co.in
by Rudolf Faix Friday, July 22, 2016 5:09 AM

What sounds too good to be true isn't true. This proverb got confirmed again with the following offer someone has dropped by using the contact form at my blog. It sounds like some people from India are waking up for starting a fight against the scam coming from their country. The problem is only that the offer itself is coming from a scammer, who likes to be registered by the government - with other words he is thinking that he is an authority in scamming, but he confirms only that he has no education. Here is the offer I have received:

It would be nice to have an app with trusted results, but by taking a look at the domain registration data, we can see that even this address is a fake:

Registrant Name: sanjay Bansali
Registrant Organization: Bird Inc.
Registrant Street: Suite 2, Silicon Valley , california

Registrant Phone: +1.4041268949
Registrant Email: bird.officials@gmail.com

What can you expect from a company offering something, where even the provided address is a fake?

You can expect only that one scammer likes to earn from other scammers. Depending on the payment from the other scammer you'll receive a positive or negative response. With other words you'll get scammed in any case instead of getting protected from scams.

As long as the scammers are so stupid and uneducated it will be easy like described above to dismantle scams and the offered service useless. Who needs to verify the location and personal profiles in such a case?

How a scammer, which is providing a fake address by himself, will be able to verify others? How trustful can be such an investigation? The provided offer is nothing else than another way of making money of a scammer. He likes to monetize the scam coming from his country. Some people would even try to sell their own dirt if it would not smell bad.

The scam offer got sent from the IP address 49.206.9.91 - located in Hyderabad, India:

Scammer Exposed

An UK company needs to hide themselves: LEADCO LIMITED - leadcoltd.co.uk
by Rudolf Faix Friday, June 10, 2016 2:49 PM

Everybody remembers the case of the Panama Papers where shell companies got created for keeping personal financial information private. While offshore business entities are often not illegal, reporters found that some of the Mossack Fonseca shell corporations were used for illegal purposes, including fraud, kleptocracy, tax evasion, and evading international sanctions. A similar kind of company like Mossack Fonseca seems to be A1 Company Services located in Finchley, London, UK. Shell companies can get easily identified by their address which they are using for their mail forwarding service.

One client from A1 Company Services, Leadco Limited, has sent me the following message from using the contact form from my website:

Betreff: WWPA e-mail - Pension review leads LOA

We are looking for an out bound call centre for pension lead gen or appointement setting is this something you can provide us with?

Author information

E-mail: Leon@leadcoltd.co.uk

User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 5.1.1; SM-G928T Build/LMY47X) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/50.0.2661.89 Mobile Safari/537.36

The IP address 135.196.188.253 is really from the UK, but at the Internet are many different proxy services available and an UK domain proves nothing. A view at the homepage from leadcoltd.co.uk returned the joke "We are the leading Marketing Brokers", because the domain and the company is less than 2 months old. Additional is the start-up company LeadCo Limited dreaming from hot ice with their requirements where the call center has to Supply their own data and get Paid per lead. With other words the "Leading Marketing Broker" is thinking that others are investing for him that he can make big money. At the payment time the center has to discuss about the quality of the leads. Already these facts are showing that LeadCo Limited has no idea about the business but the owner from the company seems to have enough reasons to hide his real name and his real location.

LEADCO Limited is registered at the UK Companies House:
Company number: 10133813
Address: 1st Floor 2 Woodberry Grove, Finchley, London, England, N12 0DR
Incorporated on 19 April 2016
Capital: £100

Director: MORRIS, Darren, born July 1980, Nationality British

People who have invested into a limited company (the shareholders) are only responsible for any company debts up-to the amount that they have invested and no more. The capital from the company LEADCO Limited is £100. That means if the debts from the company are higher than the £100 and the company has not enough funds for paying their debts they are bankrupt. In this case the creditors are not getting more in sum than £100, independent how high the debts from such a company are.

A Google search for the address "2 Woodberry Grove, Finchley, London, England, N12 0DR" returned 58,700 results. This count of results seems to be too high for a simple company address. It seems that at this place is something running wrong. One of the search results is 15,826 Companies in N12 0DR, Woodberry Grove, London - Endole and you'll find there really more than 15,000 companies listed with their net worth value and their cash in bank.

Google recognizes the search for an address and provides in such a case in the search results Google Maps, Google Earth and Streetview.

Google Streetview shows us only the Finchley Christian Spiritualist Church. Such a big house where 15,826 companies can have their office inside is simple missing. The Finchley Christian Spiritualist Church has house number 4:

The place where more than 15,000 companies should be located

The satellite picture from Google Earth shows us that the house with the address 2 Woodberry Grove, Finchley, London, England, N12 0DR is hiding behind the church and cannot get seen from the street:

Google Earth picture for the address 2 Woodberry Grove, Finchley, London, England, N12 0DR

Don't let yourself get fooled and think that the big building with the caption Homebase - London North Finchley could be the searched address. This building has the address 679 High Rd, North Finchley, London, N12 0DA and is a Warehouse-like chain for home improvement, DIY and garden equipment, plus furniture. Even this building would be to small for having more than 15,000 companies inside.

The answer is very simple and can get found in the search results for the address at Google. At the same address is working the company A1 Company Services - UK Company Formations. Such services are registering companies and are even providing directors, nominee and secretarial services for a small amount. The business term for such a company is shell company.

Scammer from U.S. - Mel Puleo - cmpuleoconsulting.com
by Rudolf Faix Saturday, March 12, 2016 5:16 AM

C.M. PuleoAs more a scammer is in need of earning some money as more unbelievable are coming their offers. One of this scammers is Mel Puleo from cmpuleoconsulting.com. Everybody should know that the margin in the electronics industry are very tight. As more vendors are coming up on the market as lower coming the average prices and margins. That happens in each industry and not only in the electronics and solar industry.

Some background information about prices and margins are getting found by a Google search. For example is written at CleanTechnica from February 2014:

However, prices vary tremendously by region. “Common residential system prices ranged from less than $3.00/W to just above $7.00/W,” the Solar Energy Industries Association wrote in 2014 regarding 2013 figures. The story hasn’t changed much since then, even though prices on both ends have come down.

Woodlawn Associates shows the possible margins a little bit better in their article The Economics of Residential Solar Installation:

The average dealer in our most recent project had revenue of $4.60 per Watt DC ($5.54 per Watt AC) over the past 12 months. The typical dealer had a cost to install of $3.71 per Watt — 80% of revenue. Earlier this year, we found dealers spend an average of 17% of revenue to acquire customers. This leaves only 3% for general and administrative expenses and profit, suggesting typical installer profits are slim. Consider that over the past year Real Goods Solar, the only publically traded firm in the residential installation industry, had G&A expenses alone that averaged 6% of revenue. (Real Goods also lost money during this period.)

The above example shows that not more than 15% - 17% from the complete costs of a solar system can get used for acquiring customers. Don't forget that the costs from Mel Puleo and her C.M. Puleo Consulting company are already included in these costs as he is nothing else running than a consulting company and the trading company makes already no earnings by paying these commission rates. Who will work for free?

By observing the facts from above you need to take a look at the spam offer from Mel Puleo - C.M. Puleo Consulting:

From: Mel Puleo, Solar [mailto:mel@cmpuleoconsulting.com]
Sent: Friday, March 11, 2016 7:33 PM
Subject: Re: Highest Payout for Solar campaign up to 7K/sale

To whom it may concern:

Our company is seeking experienced Telemarketing center in sales. The solar energy industry is growing rapidly in CA and we are building our sales team to meet the demand.

Compensation for each sale can range from $4K to $10K and beyond.

This is the most competitive Compensation in the industry bar none.

$500.00 commission is paid upfront the following week on every sale, the rest gets paid out on install [30/35 days out from the date of sale]

Our Floor commissions include “NO Adders”, this means you keep 100% of your earned compensation, no other Company offers this, and can typically eat away at your overall commission by 30 to 60%.

We will only entertain nothing less than 10 agents to start.

If you're 100% confident, you have killer closers & you feel that your center has what it takes to close over the phone, we have the best trainer in the industry “BAR NONE” that will walk you by the hand until you can fly on your own.

We are also looking for Appointment Setters, call for comp plan.

Feel free to contact us via skype or thru the phone listed below.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you.

Best Regards,

Mel Puleo

C.M. Puleo Consulting

mel@cmpuleoconsulting.com

skype: carmine-puleo

The scam gets already shown in the above sentence "Compensation for each sale can range from $4K to $10K and beyond", because a typical solar energy installation for house has less than 5kW and has a usually price range of less than US$ 20,000. If we calculate from this price the maximum from 17% total paid commission than we get including the earnings from C.M. Puleo Consulting only US$ 3,400 and not US$ 4,000 like written in the email offer for the center.

If we take a look at the site Recruiter about the average income from a solar sales representative, than we'll find there the following statement:

A Solar Sales Representative or Assessor gets a compensation ranging between 64000 and 96000 depending on experience and domain knowledge. Solar Sales Representatives and Assessors earn a compensation of Eighty Four Thousand Four Hundred dollars each year.

An average income from US$ 84,400 per year equals to US$ 7,033 per month. Such a sales person needs only to sell two solar systems per month to be a profit for his company if the commission for each sale is US$ 4,000.

As the salary from the sales representative cannot get replaced with telemarketing agents how many sales such a sales representative needs to make per day that the telemarketer and the sales representative are able to earn their income?

Don't forget that from the before calculated total possible commission of US$ 3,400 per sale has to get paid the telemarketer, the sales representative and C. M.Puleo Consulting Company. I hope everybody sees now the scam in the offer above.

Real companies are going offshore for increasing their earnings by lowering their cost per sale and not to spend more. Especially in the technical industry are the margins very tight and each company tries to reduce their own costs. For this reason is already the offer from C.M. Puleo nothing else than a big lie. Under these circumstances are coming the complaints about C.M. Puleo Consulting believable which get found at:

A few from the complains listed above got written by the same person, but that does not make them unbelievable. Combined with the other complaints they are making sense. Especially the Ripoff Report from August 2, 2012 where Mel Puleo complains David Hjorth shows the fails and/or scam history from Mel Puleo:

All the above facts are showing what C. M. Puleo is understanding under business: Having an idea and the earnings, others should risk their hard earned money, doing the work and cry for their earnings because they will not get paid and the investment will never returned. I call such a behavior scam.

Update March 12, 2016: A Mel from using the IP address from Costa Rica 190.108.73.13 sent the following message using the contact function of my blog:

Remove this immediately!! or my lawyer will be contacting you on monday morning!!! This is ridicules!!!! My wife and I work ungodly hrs, and for someone who clearly has just way to-much time on their hands to sit behind a PC and make up all this bullshit is beyond what words can describe!

Already the content of the message shows the character from the person. Instead of explaining where I'm wrong with my opinion, he is threatens only with legal action. The only problem is that he needs to show some evidence in front of the law court. He should also read the full legal disclaimer from this site for knowing my address too. He will need it for selecting the court and in front of the court.

 

Scammer: 9FRAMES INFO SERVICES LLP - 9frramez.com - 9frames.org
by Rudolf Faix Monday, November 23, 2015 10:35 AM

Logo 9frramez Info Service LLPProfile picture of safiya begumRecently I got forwarded a form filling project "US LOAN CUSTOMERS DATA DIGITALIZATION PROCESS". Already the title told me that the project is nothing else than scam. U.S. consumer date are protected by law. Banking data and loan data are high sensible data and are for this reason to get special protected. Public available are normally not more than data found in a phone directory.

The offer is from 9frramez Info Service LLP, which should be an ISO 9001-2008 certified company for the case even the the ISO certification is not a fake too. Their staff member can even not show her own face at her LinkedIn profile. It seems that Safiya Begum (for the case it is her true name) does not like to provide a manhunt picture by herself. The same is valid for their director, which is using at LinkedIn the name "9 frramez" and a graphic instead of a profile picture. The Facebook profile of 9frramez does not look in a better way.

It seems that both are believing that it is enough to promote dream campaigns and get for their inventions huge advanced fees. In any case is the comment interesting with which I got the campaign description forwarded:

Greetings of the day.

 

please find the attachments of the campaign.

These guys have Diwali offer for me in the payment which ill send you in another mail.

To talk about work, when i visited their registered office they showed me the work in the software they going to provide me for the work. I have seen the the software, seen them working on it.

I had searched for their companies master data in mca21.com an Indian government website. I will send those details too.

when i visited one of their vendor(center which is working on their project like other centers) he told me that he paid some amount while getting the project, though there is a delay in the payback, client is paying the bills without fail. He is running a home based BPO where he is living with his family. He showed me the mails of work he's been allotted. his employees are working through team viewer. I had observed everything and didn't find anything to doubt him.

Coming to 9frames they were a bit rude when i asked them for another center details. Previously they used to call me of their own, but now when i called them about the center details they were rude. I just said them "fine then....thank you".

 

Please go through all of them.

Attached has been the project description as pdf-file and the following screenshot:

The above screenshot shows that the data are computer generated and for this reason already stored in a digital way. There is no need for any manually action to convert the data into another format or storage ares. This can be done by converting data on the direct way. Such a data conversion is faster (depending on the system itself will take such a export/import procedure a few minutes and not 11 months like described in the pdf-file) and is 100% error free. In any case is a dataconversion cheaper than any manual workforce.

For this free invented project the scammer likes to get  "SERVICE FEE Rs.2.00 Lakh + (14% Service Tax) for Each 5 Seats or Rs.3.75 Lakh + (14% Service Tax) for Each 10 Seats". I know that scammer don't like to use their brain and they are thinking if they invent a campaign then it needs to be very expensive. But they are even to stupid to invent a campaign for a scam which can hardly get identified, because their brain is not in training.

That they even ar too stupid to remember their own company name gets shown if we take a look at their company registration data:

Update March 12, 2016: A Neelesh tries to impress me with big words:

Hi there!

It was very nice to see about our company that it is a scam on your blog.

We request you to share your address details to proceed legally on this particular issue.

We have completely gone through our previous track and didn't find nothing wrong with our people.

So, that we have escalated the matter to our admin department to take legal action against you.

We really cannot understand, no such person as mentioned in your blog visited our company and no people have behaved rudely with your people.

Anyways, It is better to you to remove the post asap, else we wanted to file suit on you after have confirmed that there was no such wrong things from our end.

Awaiting for your reply.

Regards
Neelesh

It seems that Neelesh is even too lazy to look into the full legal disclaimer of this website or into the domain registration data. There he would find my address he is asking for.

Sure, each scammer does not recognize his own fail. The problem is only that 9frames Info Services LLP does not have any client for the offered campaign because loan data are in the U.S. protected by law and the outsourcing client would get fined with US$ 16,000 per record. If we are calculating how many records a center with 5 or 10 seats can enter during one day then we see that the client would pay millions of dollars for each day as a fine. For this reason the complete offshore outsourcing campaign will not make any sense because the client will pay in sum more than to let it typing by the most expensive staff of his own company.

So Neelesh, please file a law court case and bring the evidence that I'm wrong in my opinion. I'll bring you the victims, which got already scammed from from 9framez Info Services LLP.

 

Scammer: Castle Pension Solutions - castlepensionsolutions.co.uk - Paul Rowe - Nick Danks

Paul RoweThe following posting from Raj Sharma at LinkedIn brought Castle Pension Solutions - castlepensionsolutions.co.uk into my focus.

The posting from Raj Sharma:

Beware!!!Beware!!!Beware!!!!Scam!!!Scam!!
scam!!!fraud!!fraud!!!fraud!!!
Beware!!Beware!!Beware!!Beware.
castlepensionsolutions.co.uk is a fraud.
Paul Rowe,the con-man and owner of castlepensionsolutions.co.uk has cheated with our company Gokyo Ri BPO as my manager rajen sing was constantly in touch with him and didnot pay our payment from last two months.We started working for him, in mid of february and started passing pension and bank reclaim leads to him.He made only 1st payment after making lots of excuses,but we continued to pass leads for him as we thought the reason which he was giving might be genuine.Suddenly,Paul started showing his true colour.He didnot make any payments afterthat.He started telling lies and giving unreasonable excuses.1st week he said we made payment,might be banking issue.Next week he said i had issue with account department .when we made several attempts to contact him through email and trying to reach him,he always avoided us.Sometimes,he said audit is going on,will pay later without giving any specific date.We tried to get our money till last week untill he completely refused to pay to us.If anyone need email and chat snap shot we are happy to share with you guys.Any thing you want to know about this fraud company and his cheater owner,please contact.
We want that these scammer and con man should be out of LinkdIn or any other sites so he cannot cheat with any other people and please avoid castlepensionsolutions.co.uk to work.We are thinking of taking legal action against him and his company and contacted Fraud and crime department of British High commission,New Delhi India.

Registrant's address:

Castle Pension SolutionsThe first what I see on their website, that the “company” is only named Castle Pension Solutions. A legal form under which the company is operating is not declared. So we try to find out if the company is registered under this name or if the any responsible person is found for this company.

Registered UK companies can get found at http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/

As expected we find some other companies which are starting with Castle Pension but no Castle Pension Solutions.

Under the names Paul Rowe, Rowe Paul, Nick Danks or Danks Nick is no company registered. For this they are private persons and not company owner. This makes at least Nick Danks for the fraud full responsible. At least Nick Danks cannot hide himself, because the website is registered on his name and the name got verified (see at the domain registry: Registrant contact details validated by Nominet on 27-Mar-2014)

The given phone number at the homepage (UK: 07852196909) is a mobile phone number.

We see at the LinkedIn Profile of Paul Rowe that he has given a recommendation for Paul Danks.

At Facebook he describes himself as “Bank/Financial Institution”. A bank or a financial institution has in UK to be registered at the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority). There is a search about “Castle Pension Solutions”, Paul Rowe or Rowe Paul at http://www.fsa.gov.uk/register/firmSearchForm.do ended without any result.

My opinion: Paul Rowe is not more than an insurance salesman who likes to play CEO. He is unable to find customers by himself. For this he uses call center in low wage countries. He is even not able to pay them.

My recommendation: Each call center, which got cheated from Castle Pension Solutions - castlepensionsolutions.co.uk - Paul Rowe - Nick Danks should file a complaint with their proves at http://www.fca.org.uk/consumers/complaints-and-compensation

Betreff: CC Scam e-mail - Reporting abuse

Good afternoon,

I have discovered a blog post about a scammed and I have been included in the post to which I beleive to be an outrage. I help the business setup a basic website a few years ago but I have zero involvement with the business or the business owner. I pride myself on helping people in business and the reason I have been mentioned was due to a mistake on registering the domain in my name rather than the client due to the setting on my hosting.
I feel that the comments made about me personally should be removed as this is slander against me when it has nothing to do with me or what I am involved with.

Feel free to keep the post about the invididual but i hope you can see by reading the post that the comment and image about me is undeserved so please can you remove.

http://blog.wwpa.com/post/2015/05/24/scammer-castle-pension-solutions-castlepensionsolutions-co-uk-paul-rowe-nick-danks-follow-up.aspx along with the main post that this relates too.

Any questions please let me know and I would be happy to answer any questions needed to have this removed.

Kindest regards
Nick Danks

Nick Danks has been the domain owner from castlepensionsolutions.co.uk at the time when the scam has happened and he is the only verified source in this case because Nominet, the British domain registry has verified his name and address. The LinkedIn profile from Paul Rowe got never verified and could get created by everybody. For this reason I tried to get a good explanation why the domain got registered on his name:

Hi

You are included in the post because you have been the owner of the domain at this time. As owner of the domain you are responsible for the content. If you have helped someone and this person has used the domain for fraud then you are in this case a partner in crime of the fraudster. Each attorney will give you the same answer.

I would never register a domain for someone other by using my name. This would make me responsible for the content of the website. If someone is not able to register a domain by himself then he need to provide to me his exact data including credit card details for the payment options for beeing able to enter it into web form.

Thank you for your response.

The website was created and transfered to the client but it took quite a while to complete the amends therefore I was named until I was paid. Which I wasn't and lost money whilst working for that business. I was infact a supplier not a partner and believe I should be removed as I have not had any business dealings with the individual apart from suppling a website. I'm not even sure the business is still going as I've tried to seek payment myself.

Please can we work together to resolve this issue and remove my details and image

Kind regards
Nick Danks

The domain got really transferred on July 8, 2016 (more than one year after the scam had happened). But the new domain owner does is a Anthony Gregory and not a person with the name Paul Rowe. So I tried to find out if Paul Rowe is in reality Anthony Gregory. Even the new site content has been very suspicious. There is a online shoe shop but without any price information and an imprint with name and address, which is required by the European law is missing too. Here a screenshot:

For this reason I have written:

I think it is not a big issue as “Paul Rowe” mentioned by himself in his email “Also nick danks if you had looked in to things properly he is just a Web creater.” (http://blog.wwpa.com/post/2015/05/24/scammer-castle-pension-solutions-castlepensionsolutions-co-uk-paul-rowe-nick-danks-follow-up.aspx)

The domain castlepensionsolutions.co.uk got transferred on July 8, 2016 to a person with the name Anthony Gregory, 21 WALSALL WOOD ROAD, WALSALL, WEST MIDLANDS, WS9 8QU, United Kingdom. Is this the original domain owner or a name which got found in a public phone directory? The actual content of the site does not really fit to the domain name. Shoes are something different than a pension system and the content is from cazpoo.co.uk – another scam site https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/cazpoo.co.uk?utm_source=addon&utm_content=warn-viewsc

Missing prices are not really something what someone is searching at an onlineshop and a missing imprint on the website does not make the site more trustful. It is even against the European law.

The problem is that I don’t believe into so many coincidences. Do you have any explanations?

The answer from Nick Danks has been coming, but not with any expected explanation:

What would you like me to explain? I created the website and asked for payment and didn't received anything so I'm in the same situation as you as a supplier which is why I'd like me image and name taken out in the post as it is damaging to my credibility and I help alot of businesses and charities.

If Paul Rowe has done things wrong then that's his problem not mine. From what I can see if he has asked for a service and it was received then he should of paid regardless of the excuses.

I know it doesn't seem like a big issue but to me it is as it's my name being damaged due to someone elses wrong doing.

Thank you for your help.

As Nick Danks has been the owner of the domain castlepensionsolutions.co.uk he has been responsible for the content of the website and for the case he has given it for rent he has been responsible that the website is not getting used for any crime. The UK law got already broken by the content of the website as it represented a business where whether Paul Rowe nor Nick Danks had the required permission or licences for it.

I told you that it is not a big deal to change the information in the posting for the reason as in the email of the other guy is written that you are only a web creator.

I have asked you: “Is the actual domain owner, Anthony Gregory, 21 WALSALL WOOD ROAD, WALSALL, WEST MIDLANDS, WS9 8QU, United Kingdom, your previous customer?”

No the domain owner was Paul rowe and he's the one tahys stung people by the looks of it. Not sure who the other guy is.

The argumentation from Nick Danks has a big problem. If I have a hosting customer, who don't pay, I'll turn off his website for giving him a reason to pay his bills. As the WayBackMachine - archive.org shows, got the content from castlepensionsolutions.co.uk between June 22, 2014 and March 13, 2016 exactly 9 time captured and the content from the site got even changed.

Even the actual content - the online shoe shop without prices and without any imprint showing the owner from the page - from castlepensionsolutions.co.uk is nothing else than a scam. It is a copy from the website cazpoo.co.uk.
