Offshore Outsourcing & Scammer
Blog about offshore outsourcing and scammer in the outsourcing industry
The scammer Mel Puleo shows what he understands as a proof
by Rudolf Faix Sunday, March 13, 2016 7:16 AM

Facebook profile picture from C Mel PuleoThe scammer Mel Puleo tries to spam the comments to this blog with faked proofs. On the same way he confirmed that he is living in Costa Rica, has a registered company in Florida, at an address which seems to be nothing else than a mail forwarding service. He also shows us in his social network profiles how much he is understanding about providing matching information.

We find at the intro section at the Facebook profile from C Mel Puleo the following information:

  • Self-Employed - that is not really the same information, which can get found at his LinkedIn profile where he calls himself to be a CEO and Chairman at C. M. Puleo Consulting, LLC

  • Went to Saddle Brook High School - located at 355 Mayhill St, Ste 1, Saddle Brook, New Jersey 07663. Compared with his LinkedIn profile where he provides the information that he has visited the Felician College located at One Felician Way, Rutherford, New Jersey 07070.

  • Lives in San José, Costa Rica - while he likes to tell us at his LinkedIn profile that he is living North Miami Beach, Florida.

  • From Potchefstroom - a city located in South Africa

I think that everybody will understand that someone can forget where he has been living and where he has been going to school especially if he had such an unsteady like C. Mel Puleo. Mel Puleo has been coming from South Africa to New Jersey, has a company in Florida and ended now up in Costa Rica, where the average yearly income is around US$ 6,810 (information provided from costarica.com - last updated Feb 05, 2013). Maybe this is the reason why C. Mel Puleo has already many times forgotten to pay the centers for their work?

Compare it by yourself. Here is a screenshot from the scammers profile at LinkedIn:

LinkedIn profile from C. Mel Puleo

Her you'll see a screenshot of the scammers Facebook profile including the intro section:

Facebook profile from C Mel Puleo

I think that C. Mel Puleo has not been at any high school or university if we take a look at the proofs he likes to provide. He thinks that if he writes something by himself under another name it will get accepted as an proof for something. You only need to compare the email and IP address provided by the service from disqus.com to see that the comment postings are done from the same person and from the same place. That is nothing else than spam and for me a proof that C Mel Puleo is only running a sham business. Here is an example of the self-congratulation of C. Mel Puleo:

Screenshot from the Disqus.com moderation section with a comment from C Mel Puleo

Another spam example from the scammer C Mel Puleo is shown in the next screenshot:

Screenshot from the Disqus moderation section with a comment from the scammer C Mel Puleo

Which value can such comments have? C Mel Puleo writes something by himself under another name and without any valid contact details. That is not a proof and useless like each other spam found on the Internet. Such comments can only get taken as an evidence for the scam, which C Mel Puleo is running. Nobody will be so stupid and give any value to such statements, which even cannot get verified. Already the idea to write such comments shows me that Mel Puleo is thinking that all others are dumber than himself. For me is this fact a sign of missing education, which gets found in the most low wage countries.

I'll not list now all his comments one by one. The next three screenshots are showing in an overview how C Mel Puleo tried to spam even the article Scam free campaigns - only 3 brokers got found during the last year and did not get it that each comment needs to get approved because my blog is not a platform for scammers and spammers. I'll approve normally every comment, even negative ones and I write a reply to it if I don't have the same opinion, but I will not approve fake evidences and self-congratulations.

As the scammer C Mel Puleo has nothing written about the accusations made in the article Scammer from U.S. - Mel Puleo - cmpuleoconsulting.com against him, I have moved all the comments shown above to the spam folder instead of approving them.

The main facts about the scam in the article Scammer from U.S. - Mel Puleo - cmpuleoconsulting.com are getting found in the own email from Mel Puleo and not at the other listed sites. The other sites like Complaints List, USA Complaints, RippOff Report, Complaints Board, Outscam and Pissed consumer are only showing the victims from the Scammer Mel Puleo.

Even if these comments should get interpreted as "thank you" letters or emails are they worthless as they are not containing any information, which can get verified. This gets shown by the first example of the self-congratulation screenshot where is written: "DelSol Energy Solutions is an established LLC in Rincon, Puerto Rico ...". An Google search returned a DelSol Energy Solutions located at Vista Mar Plaza Carr 115 Km 12.0 Suite #2, Rincon, Puerto Rico. At their Facebook page we find the information: Solar Energy Service · Advertising Service · Marketing Consultant. Their oldest entry is from July 3, 2015. Additional get found a link to their very impressing homepage http://www.delsolenergysolutions.com shown here:

In summary we have here a private US person, living in Georgia, USA, who is running a company in Puerto Rico. This person is a marketing consultant, who is since nearly 6 month not able to bring up his own homepage. Such a person should be a reference for Mel Puleo? I think that such a person and such a company construction is more suspect as Mel Puleo by himself.

Scammer Exposed

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.

Mel Puleo

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! I need to know who was the person who placed this as we will spare no expense to go after them legally!!

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.

 

Scam free campaigns - only 3 brokers got found during the last year
by Rudolf Faix Friday, March 11, 2016 8:14 AM

Not one outsourcing client takes the risk for searching and hiring a call center broker or consultant from abroad. If an outsourcing company is searching abroad then they are searching for a call center directly, which is able to run their campaign, have a high success rate and not for a man in the middle who only likes to earn money by an easy way. A real client goes offshore for saving money and not for entertaining man in the middle, scammers or brokers from low wage countries. If a client hires a broker than he hire one, which is for him all the time reachable to complain, hit and bite him for the case something is running wrong with his campaign.

Brokers and consultants are getting paid from the outsourcing client and not from the center. They are responsible for running the outsourced campaign successful as they have selected the center for the clients campaign. For these reason they are even not allowed to take some money from the centers - it could be construed as a bribe. Offering and taking bribes is in the civilized world a crime and the fines are high. Depending on the case both, the one who is offering and the one who is accepting bribes, can even end up in jail.

Not one broker or consultant allows other brokers, consultants or "middle men" of any kind redistributing their campaigns unless otherwise approved by themselves. Not one reputable businessman charges any start up or up-front fees what so ever to launch their campaign. Real campaign brokers required to make their contracts directly with the call center and call center owner and that they have direct access to the sales floor, managers and agents when requested. They also insist that the call center receives and keeps 100% of the commissions. No payment should ever be given to a third party by the contracted center.

99.99% of the outsourcing offers found in the social networks are nothing else than scam. These scams have already destroyed the main part of the offshore outsourcing industry as even outsourcing clients got scammed, leads and data got sold many times. For these reasons the data protection law got raised during the last 10 until 15 years. Until now are trying my special friends, the scammers, offering impossible and invented campaigns against a huge invention fee. Everywhere, where you get asked to pay something - however the fee gets called - you'll get only scammed. Real clients are not taking money from the centers and they are able to pay their hired staff. The scammers are only confirming their scam with their "consultancy fee", "security deposit", "royalty" or however the fee gets called. These fees are nothing else than inventions from the scammers, which are too lazy doing a normal work.

Since more than one year I'm active warning from the scammers found at the social networks. During this time I have only found three real campaign brokers, which I list here. Please don't waste your and their time by asking them for any non-voice campaigns, like form fillings, inbound campaigns etc. Such campaigns are only existing in the dreams from the scammers. Remember all data are protected by law and not one company has their data on paper or need to convert them manually. Already the question for such campaigns is disqualifying yourself, because it shows that you have no idea from call center work, law in the different countries and you are for this reason not a trustful partner for any outsourcing client.

Scam free call center campaigns are available from:

  • Deep Blue MarketingDeep Blue Markteting
    Deep Blue Marketing (DBM) is a BPO promoting organization from the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen with area in Spain, Madrid and roots in the Dominican Rep and US where the greater part of our customers are from.

Scammer: Asif Iqbal Ahmed - Skype: asifiahmed - +919903326185 - razor0089@hotmail.com
by Rudolf Faix Thursday, March 3, 2016 12:15 AM

Asif Iqbal Ahmed - Skype: asifiahmed - +919903326185 - razor0089@hotmail.comA partner in crime from the scammer Sebastian Serret - SeptConsult Limited (reports found at Scammer: Sept Consult - Sebastien Serret - Restaurant booking at the Seychelles and Scammer: Sebastien Serret - SeptConsult Limited - is running out of arguments) or the inventor from the scam campaigns itself is Asif Iqbal Ahmed. It does not make any difference in front of the law court which one of the two is the real source of the scam. Already trying to scam someone is punishable by law and both are offering scam campaigns.

He contacted me on Skype and tried to convince me that the offered campaigns from SeptConsult Limited are legal and he is getting paid from Sebastien Serret. The problem is only that he is only a broker of scam campaigns and not a center owner like it gets already shown at the caption of his Skype profile where is written: "INBOUND AND OUTBOUND CAMPAIGNS AVAILABLE..ONLY INTERESTED CENTERS CONTACT.". Again gets confirmed that scammers are even too lazy to think and to stupid to fake some proofs. The stupid scammer Asif Iqbal Ahmed has been thinking that it is enough to tell me that he is running a center and gets paid every month for convincing me that the offered campaigns from Sept Consult - Sebastien Serret are legit. Sebastien Serret by himself has written during his Skype chat: "We will send you proof, reference and even offer you a visit by the end of the month to be able verify about us". That means that there is not one center available until now, which got paid until now and for this reason are no proofs available.

The scammer Asif Iqbal Ahmed is offering his sham campaigns at Call Centers Forum, Call Center Zone, Campaign Provider, News Central, etc.

At Call Center Zone we find from Asif Iqbal Ahmed the following scam offer dated on December 3, 2015:

INTERNATIONAL HOTEL\RESTAURANT BOOKING INBOUND

Hello Centers,
My client is looking for some centers who are willing to start up a decent long term business and develop as time passes. We need centers for our new inbound project on board.
Only Centers who are keen to build up their business tentatively for a long run are welcome aboard.

THE DETAILS ARE THERE IN THE ATTACHMENT KINDLY CHECK AND IF INTERESTED GET IN TOUCH WITH ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

ONLY 4 SLOTS AVAILABLE

THANK YOU

REGARDS : Asif Iqbal Ahmed
+91 9903326185

Skype : asifiahmed

Asif Iqbal Ahmed seems not knowing that big international hotel chains have their own booking central and are giving room contingents to tour operators. He even does not know that travel data are protected since more than 10 years as personal and consumer data by law and not one client can give access to their data. That fact shows that the only thing in what the scammer Asif Iqbal Ahmed is interested in is the upfront fee which the center has to pay for getting a work which does not exists. Not one client will take the risk to outsource such a campaign because the fines are much higher than the amount which can get saved by outsourcing such a process.

Another scam offer from Asif Iqbal Ahmed gets found at Call Centers Forum with the dated on September 23, 2015:

PPI OUTBOUND AVAILABLE FOR UK

Hello centers,
I have a client from UK who is keen to do business with centers in INDIA AND OVERSEAS who can handle OUTBOUND CALLS for their customers and handle the calls in the best possible way.
The campaign is with regards to PAYMENT PROTECTION INSURANCE.

CLIENT PROVIDES :

LEADS : YES
VOIP : YES
IP : YES

PAYOUT would be 7 Pounds UK Currency.

Any quality centers kindly catch up with me on skype : asifiahmed

or mail me your company profile so that we can get in touch and get started.

Thank You

Regards : Asif Iqbal Ahmed
+91 9903326185

This fact shows that the scammer is even to lazy to read some news. The PPI (Payment Protection Insurance) has resulted during the year 2014 into a big mis-selling scandal. How can get PPI sold in this case in September 2015? This fact shows again that Asif Iqbal Ahmed is an uneducated, brainless and stupid scammer.

The Skype profile from the scammer Asif Iqbal Ahmed:

Skype profile from the scammer Asif Iqbal Ahmed

Hopefully is Sebastien Serret keeping his promise from the chat with me, where he has written: "I said we will accept all claims". It seems that the claims will arrive faster than they are expected.

Some people like the scammer Asif Iqbal Ahmed are only born stupid and have nothing learned in their life, spitting only big words without any knowledge.

His stupidity get's confirmed from his Skype chat shown on the following screenshot:

Screenshot from the Skype messages of Asif Iqbal Ahmed

The above conversation shows the low education level or the enormous bad quality in education of the Jogesh Chandra Chaudhuri Law College where the scammer Asif Iqbal Ahmed like to have studied and the Kolkata High Court where he likes to work as written in his Facebook profile. In civilized countries such people like Asif Iqbal Ahmed are even not allowed to clean the streets in front of such places.

Here a screenshot of his Facebook profile (part of his education and workplace):

Screenshot of the Facebook profile from Asif Iqbal Ahmed

The scammer is even so stupid that he thinks that I'm afraid to pick up the phone. I'm not speaking with such low level people like Asif Iqbal Ahmed. I prefer the written communication in such a case that I'm able to publish it with copy and paste for the case there is some important information or some information of public interest included.

Update Jan. 18, 2017:
Link from the Facebook profile Asif Iqbal Ahmed (https://www.facebook.com/razor0089) removed as it returns error 404 - not found.

 

Scammer: Sebastien Serret - SeptConsult Limited - is running out of arguments
by Rudolf Faix Wednesday, March 2, 2016 8:26 AM

Sebastien SerretI enjoy it every time if a scammer or a businessman who has not fulfilled his commercial due diligence gets in contact with me and tries to explain that he is not a scammer. In the most cases are the scammers confirming their fraud.

Shortly after I have published the article Scammer: Sept Consult - Sebastien Serret - Restaurant booking at the Seychelles I got a contact request at LinkedIn from Sebastien Serret:

  • Yesterday, Sebastien Serret said the following:

    Good Morning Mr Rudolf, I came across your post about me and my company and was wondering about your conslusions. Request to please clarify your points. Thank you

    3:24 AM (GMT+1)

  • Yesterday, Rudolf Faix said the following:

    Good morning Sebastien, please feel free to clarify the points.

    3:30 AM (GMT+1)

  • Yesterday, Sebastien Serret said the following:

    we are a very young management company not the direct client for this project and the chain of restaurants is not based in Seychelles nor Mauritius. Our company is duly registerered in Seychelles for a business strategic reason only and we provide our proof of address and ID from Mauritius as well to any center that we work with. Though we agree that there was a typo error in the MOU regarding the refunded amount but we sent an email to correct it as soon as it was pointed out to us. Hence we would like to request to kindly remove this post. If it can be genuinely proved that we took money from centers and did not pay them or if we gave them some process and then do not pay, then I am totally responsible and will shamefully accept to be labelled as a scam but up and until then, please do the needful.

  • Yesterday, Sebastien Serret said the following:

    Please feel free to add me on Skype for any further information that you may require.

  • Yesterday, Sebastien Serret said the following:

    Skype ID: sedconsulteltd

    3:43 AM (GMT+1)

A typo error in his favor found in a contract shows already the quality from the business of the scammer Sebastien Serret from SeptConsult Limited. I think that the intelligence from the scammer is very limited, because he likes to get the article removed by arguing about trivialities. I did not find anywhere some argument about the main important things like:

  • Why does he not get paid from these ones which hired him?
  • Who is booking at 3 am in the morning a table at a restaurant (the campaign need 10 agents for 24 hours)?
  • Which size has the restaurant that it can handle the bookings received during one day from 10 seats, which are working around the clock?

To clarify these point I have answered:

  • Yesterday, Rudolf Faix said the following:

    The world largest restaurant is the Royal Dragon restaurant in Bangkok.(www.royal-dragon.com). It is even noted in the Guiness Book of records. They have a staff count of over 1,000 people. Do you like to know how many people are making the bookings for this restaurant? Maybe you can explain me who will make a booking at 3am a table at a restaurant? Maybe you can explain also why someone shall pay something for getting work? This one, which hired you for the campaign has to pay you and not this one, which makes the work,

The scammer Sebastien Serret needed 11 hours for sending an answer to these questions and again there is no answer to the open questions. He has sent me the following answer:

  • Yesterday, Sebastien Serret said the following:

    Though we understand your point we also are very clear as to why we charge a security deposit but at no point do we harass or pressure the centers to pay us.

  • Yesterday, Sebastien Serret said the following:

    We will send you proof, reference and even offer you a visit by the end of the month to be able verify about us. If by that time we are not able to do so like I said we will accept all claims.

    3:04 PM (GMT+1)

The scammer Sebastien Serret has confirmed the scam with the above answer. He had not one question answered which I have sent to him. Additional does he need one more month for faking proofs.

He has only converted the "application fees" into a "security deposit". In the MOU is written:

Note: Whereas the Centre is engaged in this type/nature of work and whereas he has represented to the Client to this effect and is keen to undertake and execute this work by paying Application Fees of $ 2,000 upon signature of this MOU.

The offer is nothing else than a advance fee scam. A security deposit has to get paid to the center because they are investing their workforce into the campaign and not to this one, which is investing NOTHING!

The proofs will have the same quality like the recommendations he has given for others in his LinkedIn profile (.pdf). There is written

  • September 25, 2015, Sebastien worked with Céline at Rogers Outsourcing Solutions
  • April 8, 2013, Sebastien managed Ericka at AXA Customer Services
  • March 20, 2013, Sebastien worked directly with Khatleen at Sedeco

but we find about his own experience only:

  • Chief Executive Officer
    SeptConsult Limited
    2014 – Present (2 years) | Seychelles

  • Chairman of the Board of Directors
    SedConsulte Limited
    October 2013 – September 2015 (2 years) | République de Maurice

  • Conseiller à l'Environnement et l'Eco-Système (English: Adviser at the environmental and ecosystem)
    Consulat Honoraire de l'Union des Comores (English: Honorary Consulate of the Comoros)
    July 2014 – February 2015 (8 months) | République de Maurice

It is every time very suspect if someone tries to hide something in his experience. A search at Google with the keyword SedConsulte Limited returned two more LinkedIn profiles where the owners have removed SedConsulte Limited from their profile:

Googles search results for SedConsulte Limited

Additional got found:

It is very suspicious if a small company got shut down and everybody tries to hide the information that he has been working for the company. In the most cases is the reason for such a behavior that the company has been a fraud one.
