Fraud and Scam

Scammer: customledsolutions.com - Innovative Tech Solutions - Nikhil Zope - Sushma Gyani
by Rudolf Faix Tuesday, June 30, 2015 1:47 PM

Custom LED SolutionsIt is nice from Sushma Gyani to declare customledsolutions.com already during a mass email as a scammer. This person does not know that a broker can only work for one site otherwise the broker can run in a conflict if he takes from both sites money. Like each business person in the service industry he has to support this party, which he pays him.

A broker in the service industry gets only paid if he provides success. This one, which has hired him, has given him an exact description what he is searching. For this reason all conditions have to get fulfilled.

In the following email from Sushma Gyani is shown that she likes to sell something. As this something has not really a description about the facts is the email nothing else then spam. Sushma Gyani shows in the email too that CustomLedSolutions - Innovative Tech Solutions has no right on the offered campaigns because there is no other income possibility than to ask for up-front fees from the center. If CustomLedSolutions - Innovative Tech Solutions would have rights on the campaign then they would get paid from the client which is outsourcing the campaigns.

The email from CustomLedSolutions - Innovative Tech Solutions - Sushma Gyani:

Gmail Rudolf Faix <rudolffaix@gmail.com>

Customled Solutions  l  Pune, Maharashtra, India  l  Tel :+91-9511900609  l  Skype : sushmacustomled l Web: www.customledsolutions.com

Typical for a scammer is that he is starting with bragging how good they are and have "existence" in other countries like UK, Singapore, etc. Each person has an existence. I think that they are meaning something others but they are even not able to express themselves in English. Why should someone believe their lies?

Each scammer says that his campaigns are "genuine and risk free". You see how "genuine and risk free" the offered campaigns are if you have paid the up-front fee and you are not able to reach them because they are blocking you. Maybe they are meaning that the campaigns are for themselves "genuine and risk free" because they have the money already when you get it that you got scammed!

Interesting is too that in the email is no description about the campaign found. But we know that scammer are lazy and for this they are inventing the campaigns on the fly as soon as someone is replying to them.

Interesting in this case has been that the domain got created December 12, 2007. The name of the domain has nothing to do with outsourcing because LED is the short form of Light Emitting Diode and has nothing to do with leads.

For this I have been searching for an earlier content of the website. This search has been successful. The Internet Archive WayBackMachine shows us the site content before December 17, 2014 from the start site customledsolutions.com:

The acclaimed Da Vinci Code is a novel that includes the fabled Knights Templar. 

The Queen of Heaven
 is a spiritual cosmology written by an actual Knight Templar. The book is vivid, esoteric, and full of secrets. For example, there are five things hidden in plain sight on the book cover shown above. Can you find them?

My name is Jeffrey Augustine. Some of my readers will know me from my work as J. Swift at the website xenu.net.

I am writing to tell you about my new book.

The Origin of the Universe and the Masonic Pyramid: The Queen of Heaven presents my cosmological alternative to Divine Creation and the Big Bang. While I am a Master Mason and a Knight Templar, my work offers secrets that these societies do not possess. Yet, had I not worked and traveled in Masonic lands, I would not have seen the larger patterns and secrets unfold. After working in Masonry and in my own work -- which spans a range from rockets to mysticism to lasers -- I was able to morph the mysterious symbol of the Masonic Pyramid into the Day Dream Pyramid shown on the cover of the book. 

This pyramid is the Pandora’s Box I open.

From out of this box flies secrets about the origins of the Universe, the Divinities, and why religions contain only fragmentary information about Infinity.

The Queen of Heaven is written in the literary style of a mystical treatise. I use storytelling, very potent symbology, and Zen in order to create a stunning experience for my reader. I want this book to be like a big big box of fireworks going off in your head. Once you understand the logic of my argument, you may be extremely surprised at how easy it is to reconceptualize Divine Creation and the Big Bang. Paradoxically, you will see why Divine Creation and the Big Bang are correct as points of view. If you were in this Universe when the event I describe happened, you might see it as either Divine Creation or the Big Bang. Science can measure the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) energy remnant from what it calls the Big Bang. The five billion religious people on Earth feel the energies of the various Divinities. What we can be sure of this: Something happened. This book traces it back to Infinity.

What I show you is the primal event from both sides, from Infinity and from our Universe. How can I possibly do such a thing you may ask? Well, you will have to read the book to find out. 

Written from the author's simple, monastery-like home in the starkly beautiful highlands of the Mojave Desert, the book has an intense Essene energy to it that only the desert can impart.

Note: It is highly recommended that the full color PDF version of the book be purchased. The black and white paperback book does not convey the beauty or power of the color PDF.  The author created 50+ color symbols and images for the book. The PDF also contains active links I included. The book is 330 pages in length and has 23 chapters. The PDF is far less expensive at $24.95. The paper book is $34.95 due to the cost structure of on-demand printing.

Purchase The Origin of the Universe and the Masonic Pyramid

Jeffrey Augustine is presently shopping for a high-powered literary agent or publisher. If this describes you, please contact the author at: jeffreyaugustine@gmail.com

Speaking Engagements: If you would like Jeffrey Augustine to speak to your group or secret society, please enquire at the e-mail address above for details. Discretion is assured.

Very Suspicious: jhagvi.com - MIyan Shafeeq - Jhagvi Limited - JPL International
by Rudolf Faix Monday, June 8, 2015 5:51 AM

JHAGVI Limitedjhagvi.com is sending out mass emails by using the list service from mcsv.net (USA) with a lot of suspicious campaigns for call centers. If we take a closer look at them, then we can see that they even don't know their own address.

What makes them suspicious:

  • The given address in the email, 8369 NW 66 ST #8006, MIAMI, FL 33166, is a mail forwarding service in Florida - usabox.com.
  • In their email they are calling themselves Jhagvi Limited
  • At their website they are calling themselves JPL International with the add-on Advance Solutions for your business development
  • House at 10 Rushcliffe Rise, Nottingham, NG5 3HJ, United KingdomAt their website are provided the addresses UK OFFICE: 10 Rushcliffe Rise, Nottingham, NG5 3HJ, United Kingdom and USA OFFICE: 8369 NW 66 ST #8006, MIAMI, FL 33166, United States (the mail forwarding service of usabox.com).
    The history of the house given at UK address (picture at the right) can get found at rightmove.co.uk. If you are using the street-view provided from rightmove.co.uk and Google, you can see that there is no company and the area is a plain residential area.
  • At their LinkedIn profile is one more address provided: Main office: 400 Minuteman Rd Andover, MA 01810, United States with a staff count of 501 - 1000 and founded 2001. At this address gets only found the professional division of The Weather Company wsi.com. The provided address is a FAKE!
  • The domain jhagvi.com is registered to the private person MIyan Shafeeq with the address 9 billington road,London se14 5qh, GB.
  • A company, which is located in Massachusetts, does not use a mail forwarding service for an address in Florida
  • A company, which is located in USA, will not host their Website in Denmark
  • A company, which is located in USA, will not use an registrar for their domain from Denmark
  • A company, which got founded 2001 (LinkedIn), will not wait until July 25, 2010 for registering their domain, especially a company from USA.
  • The last creation date of the domain jhagvi.com is from December 2, 2013
  • Domaintools is reporting 21 historical whois record and 14 webhosting DNS events since Jul 25, 2010. It seems for me that they even did not have enough money to pay the hosting and domain registration fees or they had a problem with their addresses and did not get the bills. :)
  • Their Facebook page got created on December 5, 2010
  • Their first uploaded pictures are from an open house event from JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory), a subdivision from the NASA in Pasadena, uploaded December 6, 2010. That are private pictures and have nothing to do with a company JPL International.
  • Their Facebook history shows that they even don't know what they are doing. For me it has the view that they a trying every business and fail in each case:
    Dec 8, 2010: environmental and occupational health and safety management system. JPL is also among the few companies in Saudi Arabia to implement SAP (ERP) software across all site locations in KSA.
    Dec 8, 2010: JPL specialises in large scale oil and gas pipeline construction, along with water transmission projects by leveraging new age construction technologies for over four decades now. JPL has the second largest fleet of equipments in the oil and gas construction industry in India.
    Dec 10, 2010: Our state-of-the-art offshore call centers provide highly specialized and professional services
    July 23, 2011: Get Your Free Business Website Now! JPL, Inc. is now giving away FREE Websites (w/ Hosting) to New & Existing Clients that will outsource their Accounting & Payroll Process with us for just 1 Year. Save a lot on Cost! Let JPL, Inc. take care of your Back Office Needs.
    September 30, 2011: Telemarketer - Work From Home.. Full time permanent Jobs
  • They tried it even with bragging on their Facebook page:
    October 30, 2011: As a valued client of "JPL", you will enjoy all the benefits of a state-of-the-art data center located in Chicago, Illinois, and owned by the JPL Networks, which also provides the physical environment necessary for keeping the servers up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
    The same picture get found at 136 sites and shows The Wells Street Tower:701 S. Wells. A data center is there and places for servers can get rented. You can be sure that the place is not owned by JPL International. They some impression they like to make with another Facebook entry from April 8, 2012, where they are showing the data center of the company Global Switch in Australia. JPL has nothing to do with them. Maybe they try to be a reseller of the services there.
  • Two more addresses are getting found at Facebook:
    July 11, 2011: New Office for Abu Dhabi
    JPL Abu Dhabi have moved to a new office, to accommodate expanding staff. The new office is conveniently located , near Abu Dhabi Mall.
    Our new address is:
    Suite 107. Al Fahad Building, 10th Street, Abu Dhabi
    Conveniently located behind the Ajman Bank and Emirates Insurance Building.
    Google does not find any JPL company at the above address

    March 31, 2012: New Office Opening Ceremony Tuesday, April 17, 2012 at 6:00pm
    Shanyuan Street, Zhongguancun, Haidian, Beijing
    The only entry, which gets found at Google at this area is: GAN-GAR - Stardust JPL NASA
    16 Jul 2001 LUKE GAO QI GAO SHAN GAO SHANYUAN GAO WANQING GAO GARBERDINE SIL GARBERDINE RAMONA GARBERS JULIAN W.
  • At the offered Home Security Campaign are leads provided. That is against the US law.
  • The in the email offered campaigns don't get found at the site http://campaigns.jhagvi.com/
  • Alexa says about the domain jhagvi.com: We don't have enough data to rank this website.
    That means the big international company is a big secret at the world wide web. Nobody is visiting the website.

My opinion: We have here a a scammer, which likes to give the impression of a big company. This scammer is not able to finance his own life, because he seems not be able to pay the hosting and domain registration fees in time. Everybody, which likes to make business with him gets pulled over the table.

Why all these campaign offers from the low wage countries are SCAM?
by Rudolf Faix Wednesday, June 3, 2015 9:13 AM

Scam SchoolA company, which likes to outsource a campaign, is searching for a consultancy or outsourcing agency locally. The reason for this is that they like to feel save and have the same law situation for a contract. A local company can get easily verified. The hired consultancy agency gets paid from the outsourcer directly. It is normal that this one, which hires someone, pays the bill for it. For this are all these campaign offers with upfronts, royalty or however the fee is getting called nothing else then scam, because it shows that the broker or consultant does not have any contract with the client.

If a outsourcer is searching on the Internet abroad, then this one will not search for a consultancy agency or broker. Such a company is searching directly for a center, which can do the work. The contract structure and the verification process will be much more costly in time and workforce then to hire a consultant, which is doing all the work for them.

Additional has each one to respect the law in the destination country of the call. Consumer and customer data are in the traditional outsourcing countries (Australia, Canada, Europe Union, Ireland, New Zealand, USA, etc.) protected by law and are not allowed that others get access to them. Even if customer data are getting stolen this one, which has stored them, has to pay a fine. A nice example for this is the case from AT&T where 280,000 customer records got stolen from their own call center staff. AT&T had to pay a fine of US$ 25,000,000 for this case.  Do you really think that one of such companies give you access to their customer database when they are expecting such fines?

This shows already the reason why all the offered inbound and form filling campaigns are nothing else then scam.  You need only to think about it who is calling or which kind of forms should get filled. The most calls a company receive are coming from customers of the company. What can you do with such an incoming call if you have no access to the customer database? You are only able to forward the call to somebody, which has access to it. In such a case this one can pick up the call by himself too. The company will not save anything by outsourcing such a process. So why they shall outsource this kind of process?

Think now about the form filling process. Such campaigns have been available before the digital revolution has started. I started programming computer systems around 38 years ago. Since 30 years are already personal computer available. 1986 got the SQL (Structured Query Language) the first standardization. Since around 20 years are SQL databases in common use for storing data. That means all the data, which should get filled in forms, are already since more than 20 years digital available and the programs are able to fill forms automatically. There is no need to enter some data manually – the digital Stone Age is already a long time over! Why should you pay someone for a copy and paste work if there are programs are available which are doing the work within seconds?

Do you really think that any author is writing by hand or on a type writer? The first program I remember having used for writing letters has been Wordstar. The version 1 got sold already in the year 1978. It has been running on the CP/M System from Digital Research already and got later on ported to the system of MSDOS. Since 1983 is Microsoft Word available. Why should an author use a type writer or write his books by hand in this case? It is much easier to type it on a computer and forward it by email to the publisher, the editor can make easily his changes and forward it directly to the pressroom. With the export function is it easily to bring the book without typing into the eBook format. There is no manual interaction necessary. The books are getting stored for a reissue. Even old book got already digitalized during the past 30 years. So there is no need for eBook typing. Think about it, why should you pay an upfront fee for such a work? The answer is very simple: The scammer cannot get paid from any client for the invented process and the upfront fee is his only possible income in this case!

The next big scam is the tech support where the center should buy calls and charge the caller for the provided service.  In this case the center takes the risk about the way the calls are getting generated. A legal way to generate such calls is with advertising not possible. With advertisings at the best visited sites you can get one or two calls per day, because everybody knows someone, which can help by computer problems. The most common problems are network and driver problems. With network problems you have no access to the remote computer and cannot give any help. Driver installation from remote is very difficult too because in the most times you need exactly the model of the hardware part. An end user will not be able to tell it to you. In such a case are only the calls remaining, which are generated by scareware. Such scareware is illegal and the center can up in jail for making money generated by scareware, viruses, ransomware, etc. As the center is making money with the incoming calls is it reasonable that the center is the programmer or the distributor of the criminal software. The seller of the calls will be already trackless disappeared in such a case and the center owner will be alone in front of the law court. The devil takes the hindmost.

 

Which campaigns are remaining for offshore call centers in such a case?

The situation is very simple.  Campaigns other than lead generations from already heavy used data, which are getting traded between the centers, are not really available.

All the offered products from the real campaigns are on a pay per sale base and are well known from the spam emails. To sell such products by already heavy used calling data is not really easy and profitable. It is only profitable for the outsourcer because he is even saving the cost for the staff and has no risk about his product which is unsaleable on a normal way. For the center is it like fishing in troubled waters by taking all the risk.

 

Email Scammer: star-technologies.webstarts.com - contactstartechnologies@gmail.com - Update

Financial FreedomIt seems that the last email scam described at "Spammer & Scammer: star-technologies.webstarts.com - contactstartechnologies@gmail.com" has not brought any success. For this Star Technologies has sent out a new spam/scam email with a little bit more information. The campaign description seems too good to be true.

Even mathematics is not the strongest site of this scammer. 10 agents :* $1100/per month = $11000 and not $10500 like the offered bank guarantee.

As the working hours are given as Indian hours, which should not matter for a form filling process, can the client be only in India or up to 2 hours in front. This makes the offer even more suspect, because in this area is no traditional outsourcing country available, where wages of $1100/agent per month are getting paid.
