Wesley Jon PollardWesley Jon Pollard seems to be a scammer, but everybody, who’s got scammed from him, is guilty by himself. Wesley Jon Pollard could not show his face in the social networks and he did not have an own domain. He used the free hosting service from weebly for offering his scam campaigns. These people who have got scammed did not make their homework and there has even been nothing for making a background check. Their own greediness by hunting for a campaign has been the reason for their problems now.

At his LinkedIn account from Wesley Jon Pollard we’ll find a recommendation from a LinkedIn member Barry Bermudez. As Barry Bermudez has given him a recommendation is now the question open if Barry Bermudez is a partner in crime or not?

Updated August 28, 2015 (For this part are updates available take a look at the updates at the end of this article): Another partner in crime can be Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano (no public profile - see the pdf at the end of this report). Wesley Jon Pollard has given her a recommendation beginning with the words “Maria was recently appointed Director with us due to certain qualities she can bring on board that benefit our clients from all around the world ….”. This shows that she has been a director and a decision maker in the organization of Wesley Jon Pollard.

Maria was recently appointed Director with us due to certain qualities she can bring on board that benefit our clients from all around the world. She came highly recommended by a present client who had previously worked very closely with her.

She is very detailed orientated, committed and hard working when it comes to getting clients what they need and always places their first, addressing areas that other brokers cannot offer.

Very unique in many ways, we are very delighted to have Maria on board as a director and look forward to seeing her career being even more successful with us.

Another member found out that the name Wesley Pollard is used at the site http://dexterity-leads.com. It can be that Wesley Pollard is coming active again. The domain dexterity-leads.com got registered in Pakistan:

We cannot be sure that Wesley Jon Pollard is active at the site registered in Pakistan, but on the site we find the names Kristy Beede, Wesley Pollard and Scott Bigelow (the name of a wrestler died January 19, 2007). You can observe that not one of these profiles has a picture. Scammers don't like to provide a manhunt picture by themselves.

As we see is the site registered in Pakistan and the provided addresses on the site are:

OBS, Portman Square, Marylebone, W1H. UK
OBS House, Margarita Heights, Batangas, PH. 4200 Tel: +63091506110390
OBS House, Taconic Road, Greenwich CT 06831 USA. Tel: (860) 377-1909

The UK address does not have any house and phone number. This address is incomplete and seems to got invented.

The US address is incomplete too. If you are using Google maps and take a look at the satellite pictures than you see that this is a forest area where you don't find any named houses.

Wesley Jon Pollard is active with his U.S. phone number on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/jon.pollard.980), LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/dex-terity/100/53a/179) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/DexterityLeads). He is offering his scams via https://dexterityleads.wordpress.com/.

The Philippian address from Bantangas is invented too and the phone number is wrong written. Correct written is the phone number +639156110390. This phone number got used from Wesley Jon Pollard in his LinkedIn Pulse postings:

Updates August 26, 2015

Bruce Young informed me about Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano:

Maria was scammed too Rudolf, she was made and led to believe by Wes too, victims as well. For Barry, Wes, was with his legit company.

Sim Antonio informed me about Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano:

Its just that this Maria is clean, she was a victim as well.

As for Maria, I think she is not aware, what she told me as we did communicate is that she removed all her connections with Wes

I can vouch for you she is clean, she is a victim as well. She is pursuing Wes as well.

Maria was able to removed Wesley's recommendation . Please Sir, she is absolutely a victim here of Wesley as well.

Christopher Caudle sent me the following email:

Hi ref the post some information for you.

Ref Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano I have been assisting in the hunt for Wesley for a long time but ref Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano she has never been nor is a director for any of his companies, I do know that Wesley put all these recommendations on without her knowledge, and she has been trying to get hold of Wesley ever since to have it removed. She does not have a contract with Wesley and she is a freelancer and is NOT employed by the company as a director. Wesley used her to send out all his documents, contracts etc to centres. So i hope you can correct the post made about her as its not true.

I would say that your criticism of centre owners are unjust in this case, as they did due diligence and everyone they spoke to seemed to point to Wesley's out of the box company as being ok.

As a former friend of Wesley (I am no more since this) I can say that as an ex police officer in the uk, that he has committed fraud and theft against centres. Currently the police are fully aware and are acting to make an arrest soon.

So you know how this started I paste below a copy of the email I sent to the Philippine police regarding Wesley, which has finally led to where we are today after a long and exhaustive investigation by me, obtaining contacts he knows, obtaining all phone numbers of him, and his home address.

I think you are doing a fantastic job keep up the good work, I will give you updates as and when i hear from the police via Maria who has been helping me track Wesley as she is as shocked as everyone is more so.

Attached photo of Wesley Jon Pollard with his wife and son.

Dear Sir,

I wish to report Wesley Jon Pollard owner of Out of the Box solutions, as missing presumed kidnaped, since 7th July 2015.

The circumstances around his disappearance are as follows.

I have known Wesley Jon Pollard for many years. He lives in the Philippines and owns the company mentioned, which has a large number of important clients on his books. He arranges call centres for his clients, and makes a point of visiting each one to vet the company and ensure their procedures match their application. His mother is Jacqui Pereira, his sister is Corinna Pollard and he has a daughter Mercedes Pollard.

His itinerary was as follows:-

UK left on 3rd July for Philippines

Arrived Philippines on 5th July

Philippines left on 8th July at 15:05 to Malaysia arriving 18:40

Malaysia left on 8th July at 22:10 to Bangalore India arriving 23:40
Staying at Oberi Hotel

Call made by centre owner Naveen Kumar to Wesley on +639156110390 who answered, Mr Naveen Kumar asked if they should meet, Wesley said no he was tired and he was going to sleep, claiming he was in the Oberi hotel.

Bangalore left on 10th July at 07:50 to Delhi arriving 10:35

Delhi left on 10th July at 11:10 to Dehradul arriving 12 noon.
Staying at JW Marriot hotel

13th July visits to a number of centres in Dehradul
14th July staying in same hotel JW Marriot.

Dehradul left on 15th July at 19:40 to Delhi arriving at 20.30

Staying at Leela Palace Hotel

15th July until 21st July staying in Delhi

22nd July left 10:00 to Mumbai arriving at 12:15
Staying at JW Marriot hotel

Was supposed to meet Naveen Kumar as he was to meet at the centre at 9am, Mr Naveen called him and asked shall he pick him up, to which Wesley said no I have my own arrangement.
Wesley did not show up

Wesley was supposed to be in Mumbai until 27th.

I have checked with all hotels and he neither stayed at the hotels nor made any reservations. His laptop is on and he is showing as away on skype, this is unusual when he goes away he always shows offline. Also he is not answering his mobile, which is again unusual, as he is always contactable. He has not been on his Facebook page since 7th July and we cannot make any contact with him whatsoever.

It is my opinion having served for 10 years with the British Police (now retired) that Wesley Jon Pollard was not in India and never arrived there, I do not believe he was in Malaysia either, and that he is somewhere in the Philippines possibly kidnapped.

He did on a call when drunk one day say to his representative, that he had a million in the bank, this could easily have been overheard, but this is conjecture.

As he still is missing and his clients and centres are very worried about their contracts, I have taken over to try to help Maria Reburiano save his business from problems and I am talking with clients and centres to assure them that Wesley will contact them soon.

I therefore formally request that this case is looked into as a missing person possibly kidnapped, and that appropriate resources are engaged to find Wesley and ensure his safety and safe return.

Update September 8, 2015:

Christopher Caudle likes to get some more publicity in this case and tried to impress me with the following statements on Skype:

From a legal standpoint as it can still be clearly read it would come under slander and libel, as it was not true, the hosting company would also be liable as well. I'm only just saying as I was in the police for 10 years so I know. I would not want to see maria take it down a legal route, which might happen anyway if she ended up harming herself because of all this. Do let me know what you think Rudolf.

That is exactly what everbody likes to read if he is opening Skype. The problem is only that Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano did not only accept the recommendation, where she got called to be a director from Wesley John Pollard, she called herself in her LinkedIn profile "Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano. Title: Director for Sales / BPO (Philippines) at Out of the Box Solutions". As much as I like to help her for the reason that she has tried to help the scammed ones to find Wesley John Pollard, but she has chosen exactly the wrong way for getting help.

The Internet is viral and it is not so easy to get something out of the Internet as many services are archiving the contents. Even Google still lists sites from her publishing, which got already deleted from the source. In her own case you'll find still the entries in Google:
Screenshot Google where Ma Eliza Reyes Reburiano calls herself Director of Sales from Out of the Box Solutions

Interesting is in any case that we not only find at Eynsham online an entry where he describes himself as “I served the village as a Section Officer (Sgt) for Thames Valley Police Special Constabulary for 10 years, and started the first Eynsham foot patrols.”, we find an entry at Campaignprovider.com a page with the title “lord chris caudle's Page” (.pdf (197.20 kb)). The page has the first entry from February 2, 2012 (.pdf (180.64 kb)) and the last entry from September 10, 2014. At Christopher Caudle's LinkedIn profile (.pdf (459.36 kb)) does not get anything found about his work as Section Officer. At his LinkedIn profile are only jobs as CEO and chairman listed. It seems that Christopher Caudle is really a multi talent.

Christopher Caudle seems to have a problem with his elf-esteem and likes to title himself to be a Lord. The definition of the British title Lord can get found in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. However the name of Christopher Caudle does not get found in the Members of the UK House of Lords directory.
Christopher Caudle titles himself as Lord Caudle

I don’t know the real background why Christopher Caudle stands up in this way for Maria. Anyone can make his thoughts by himself about the reasons. My opinion is that he thinks to know everything and does not accept any technical arguments from others. He knows the meaning of "it seems to be" otherwise he would not call in his Facebook postings for self-justice, he would use the official and legal way to file his complaints.

I’m sorry for Maria’s publicity in this case and everybody shall accept that she tries to help in the case against Wesley John Pollard. Please don't judge her for her past in this case. Maybe she got cheated too. Everybody is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty and even in the case she get's found guilty for something in this case, is active repentance an extenuation.

Scammer: Ravi Bhojane - data extraction from resumes
by Rudolf Faix Wednesday, July 22, 2015 8:46 AM

Ravi BhojaneYesterday I got forwarded an unbelievable offer – converting data from resumes to Excel. Each agent shall convert 950 resumes per week and 30 agents are needed for doing the work. These are 28,500 resumes per week or 114,000 resumes per month. At least is not written in the email how long the work will last.

The scammer is calling this in his email “data mining”. I think the scammer Ravi Bhojane does not know the work of data mining and he does not know the work of a recruiting agency. It shows that he has been even too lazy to inform himself about the requirements of data mining and recruiting before he has invented this campaign.

Let us first take a look at the email and the campaign offer:

From: Ravi Bhojane <ravi.d.lord@gmail.com>

Subject: Ref: LinkedIn communication
To: budhaditya.sengupta@gmail.com


Hi Bushaditya
 
Hope you are doing great. Thanks a lot for inviting me to connecting on LinkedIn.
 
 
I'm Ravi Bhojane, a professional freelance consultant, business strategist. With an experience of 10 years and an extensive background in different business functions, I have served several industries both in IT and Non - IT sectors. Lately I have been working with 5 different Midsized BPO companies (40 to 120 seaters) as Business consultant.
I recently started a small BPO company (60 Seater) based in Mumbai. I'm working on a non voice data mining project.
 
The project is quite large and at current state with my limited resources I'm unable to deliver the project as simply I do not have the required resources or a center large enough to accommodate required resources to execute the project.Also with my current finances it is not possible for me to grow at same speed with the project requirements
 
The end client does not wish to go shopping for more vendors by themselves, however they are ok with me outsourcing the work to established companies on my responsibility. Therefore I was shopping around for associations with other established companies to share the workload on 'no commissions' (for me) basis.
 
In case you are interested, please do give me a call, so we can discuss the possibilities in length and breath.
 
I have attached a document herewith for your reference.
 
​Cheers!!!

Resumes to Excel project.pdf (311.80 kb)

That he has "opened a small BPO company" and that he does not have enough capacity is nothing else than a bite, which the victim center shall take.  The most important part of the attachment:

SYNOPSYS OF THE PROJECT

Nature of Project : Locate & Copy 6 key Data fields from Resumes (.doc) & Paste into Excel (.xls). Plus create 1 link. Work load : 950 Resumes per ID per Week Number entries : 7 (6 + 1 link)

Pay Out : Rs 12 INR per Resume

Slot : 30 Ids (Number of seats)

Registration Fees : Rs. 5,000 INR per ID (Rs. 150,000 INR for 1 slot)

TAT : 6 Days Max

Monthly Billing : Rs. 1,368,000 INR (Thirteen Lakh, Sixty Eight Thousand)

Software Requirement(s) : MS Office

PROCESS DETAILS Resume to Excel conversion project Data entry operator is expected to locate, copy & paste or type required details from resume (.doc) in to the excel sheet (.xls). Fields to be captured

  1. Name of the candidate
  2. Mobile/contact number of the candidate
  3. Email ID of the candidate
  4. Educational qualifications
  5. Professional Educational qualifications
  6. Total work experience of the candidate
  7. Create link to the resume file

A screenshot of the Excel table should show how the data should get collected:

data extraction from resumes - sample data

If a recruiter is collecting data in the amount of 114,000 records per month then he is not using Excel – such a company will use a database. As there are no recruiters available at the world, which get 114,000 resumes per month I’m missing a very important field in the list: the date of the resume! Without this field the experience field is useless as there is getting collected the count of years or months.  As people are collecting different qualifications during their life does it not make any sense to collect this data in one line with the address. Not one recruiter would spend around US$ 21,500 for such a useless data collection. For this the offered work is nothing else than SCAM.

Even a blind man with a cane sees in the data structure is no way for a Data Mining because for this are getting too less data collected. This proves that the scammer Ravi Bhojane is even too lazy to use his brain by inventing scam campaigns.

The fact that Ravi Bhojane likes to get money from the center confirms that he does not have any contract with a client, which pays him. That is only one more confirmation for his SCAM.

Scammer Exposed

systweak.com: a fraudster with Microsoft Gold Partner certification
by Rudolf Faix Wednesday, April 22, 2015 1:59 AM

Fraud AlertAt my research for the roots of the Tech Support scam offers in the call center industry I have found the company Systweak India - domain systweak.com. It is one of the sources of the "Tech support calls", which are getting traded at Facebook in the call center and outsourcing groups all over the Asia and India.

The scam is working the following way:

  • Once they have programmed system tools on shareware base. Maybe at this time they had some sense, but with the further development and improvement of Windows this tools have been coming obsolete. Other companies are even providing already such tools for free or including similar products into their own offers. So they have been coming greedy and added to their products scare warnings and are showing a phone number where their victims have to call for help.

  • This incoming calls get sold to call centers, which have more or less a script and some provided tools for giving paid help to the caller. The call center is billing for their service directly the customer. This makes the scam dangerous for the call center, because in this case the money flow shows that the call center is the scammer. They will get prosecuted even they know it or don't know it that they are helping in scamming others. 

  • If their victim calls the phone number he has to pay a high price for the help. If their victim agrees and pays the scam fee, then they are installing more fraud software on the victims computer. Even the call center agent, which should solve the problem does not know about the scareware which is included in the provided tools.

 

Even if the scam has not been planned from the beginning, the system "Pay Per Sale" leaded to the scam. The greediness of the call center owners has driven the agents to sell as much as they can. Each business need to try to earn from their investment. If they buy something on stock then they need to try to make profit out of this stock. Nobody can work for free because we all need some money to pay our daily needs. This leads to such a fraud behavior too. If this has been the real case then it has been the self shot for Systweak. Even if the paid help is planned for one or more years, the problem exists, that the customer is reaching another call center then this one he has paid for his subscription. This new call center likes to get money too and does not work for free - remember the service is a "pay per sale" offer.

They are selling the calls, because they are thinking that they cannot get prosecuted by doing this. The first, which is coming into the spotlight is the owner of the phone number and this one, which takes the money. Indeed it is difficult to follow all the trades, which are done between the brokers, but it is not impossible. The first one, which are getting prosecuted are the helpers of the fraud and scam. In this case are it the call center owners, their agents and the owner of the published phone numbers.

At easycounter.com can get seen how much traffic is generated by the site systweak,com, With this counters can get calculated how many computer user are falling into their trap. You can see a screenshot from April 21, 2015:

Systweak Traffic from esycounter 

In the following screenshot are the top countries listed where the traffic comes from:

SysTweak Worldwide Audience from Easycounter

 

It was a coincidence that I found the right domain. As the domain has been suspicious for me, because nobody can give up to 70% commission on his products if the product is competitive priced. I made my standard search procedure as following:

A short reputation research at scamadviser.com brought the result:

ALERT: Low Trust Rating. This Site May Not Be Safe to Use.

I found the following comments at scamadviser:

  • Susan Swanson Speulda
    Susan Swanson Speulda · Contractor at Apollo Education Group
    Totally got screwed. Owes me a $400 refund but said I had to pay $200 to get it
    Put a startup password on my computer but told me I had to pay to get the password. Told them I wouldn't and the said f you. Computer being worked on but may need a new motherboard. Don't do business with them!
     
     
  • Joanne Jan Naujokas
    Joanne Jan Naujokas · RITI
    I paid 198 for one year service and they have cleaned up my computer at least 6 times so far. I think they are from India but have always been great and polite and yes try to sell more but I don't accept.
     
     
  • openid (signed in using AOL)
    I'll tell you the truth. Systweak are an absolute nightmare, son't get involved, don't download shit from these parasites. They are all about scamming. Their "regcleanpro" software is just a hijacked app that they then use to extort more money from you. They are based in Jaipur and they will steal your money and ruin your pc. DON'T DO IT.

 

Norton SecuredMicrosoft Gold PartnerBy taking a look at http://systweak.com/ I have found the Microsoft PartnerGold Application Development Logo and the Norton SECURED powered by Symantec logo.

The Norton secured logo means only that they are using a security certificate from Symantec. This only confirms only that the correct server is communicating with you and certificate can get reviewed by clicking on the Norton logo. The result is shown in the following screenshot:

More interesting is the Microsoft Partner Gold Application Development, which really leads to the site https://pinpoint.microsoft.com/en-IN/Companies/4295548206 (see the site at the pdf attachment) and confirms the partnership of Systweak India.

As Systweak is offering a Premium Support at their website and the customer complains about "Owes me a $400 refund but said I had to pay $200 to get it Put a startup password on my computer but told me I had to pay to get the password." makes all the surroundings of this company a little bit suspect. So I decided to search a little bit at Google and other sites.

WOT (Web Of Trust) is rating them based on user comments are from 100 ratings 92 complaints about scam, malware and scareware.

Scambook.com reports:

Information about Systweak Inc. was first submitted to Scambook on Sep 10, 2011. Since then the page has accumulated 4 consumer complaints. On average users reported $106.80 of damages. Scambook's investigation team reached out to this company a total of 1 times, Scambook Investigators last contacted them on Apr 23, 2013.

In a comment at downloads.cnet.com we find:

"STOP!!!! DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!!!!"

March 25, 2014  |  By dwillpirate

 |  Version: Advanced System Optimizer 3.1.648.6846

Pros

Initially it seemed to be a great system to search my entire computer, find errors and fix them, but....

Cons

I installed the program after what I now know were fake "HP Help" guys from India recommended it. First off, it would install older versions of drivers that would end up causing more problems. My computer ran fine prior to the program and continued to slow down more and more over time. Eventually it got to the point where my computer would freeze after 5 minutes of use. I bought a new hard drive and loaded ASO first, and immediately my computer began to run extremely slow, using 100% of CPU space. I called the tech support number and got another guy from India who again tried to sell me the same "maintenance plan" as before that cost $350. It is an absolute scam to try to get people to pay for more unneeded service.

Summary

DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT. If you have any version of it on your computer, get it off, it will cause you nothing but problems. It is a Trojan Horse that actually introduces more problems to your computer, which Systweak will "fix" for hundreds more dollars. STAY AWAY!!!

Similar complaints are getting found at the site RipoffReport.

At Postseek,com is documented, that the software is not easy to get uninstalled and it is very hard to get rid of all the pop ups.

At the Microsoft community is the scam well documented too. There are 11 pages full of this topic

At the complaintsboard.com you'll also find their fraud described,

2-spyware.com: Lists an uninstall solution and a lot of user comments about the Systweak product RegClean Pro:

As you can see from our review, RegClean Pro is legitimate application, but we do not recommend using it. After testing it, we found that it fails to detect all registry errors and also displays exaggerated scan results that are filled with doubtful issues. If you have already purchased it, its owners offer a money guarantee. We would recommend you to use it. If you want to remove RegClean Pro from the system, you can do that by using  SpyHunter or STOPzilla, or by following these manual removal steps:

Bleeping Computer.com has a removal instruction for the people, which cannot get rid of the Systweak product regclean pro. It shows how difficult it is to uninstall the malware from India.

Spybot has published a removal instruction for this kind of malware too,

This list can get endless continued. A Google search of "systweak scam" returns around 285 000 results, a search about "systweak malware" returns around 343 000 results and a search about "systweak scareware" 74 100 resuilts.

Even a court order for a similar scam gets found at onguardonline.gov:

A U.S. District Court recently ordered the operators of several international tech support scams to pay more than $5.1 million for convincing people that their computers were riddled with viruses and then charging for bogus support services.

We’ve (onguardonline.gov) written before about tech support scammers. They call and claim to work for well-known companies like Microsoft, Norton or McAfee. They say your computer is infected with malware and then ask for remote access so they can “fix” it. Or they place ads in online search results to trick you into calling them.

 

So don't use their software. You'll get scammed. The calls for the provided numbers are getting traded in the call center industry in Asia. There will be even some others get found, which try to copy the system.

Dear All,


I saw on numerous classified sites that Rakesh Goel from Nagpur providing BPO projects. I've contacted him and he sent me the project details. He said he wouldn't give me any details about the client until i make the payment for the consultancy charges. He was very prompt in the beginning but after i made the payment the real truth started to appear. He took 4 lacs rupees from me for providing the project. After taking the money he said the project is from Zennett INC (Fake company mind you) which is a sister company of KPMG. What a liar. Anyways he kept on delaying the client call and never provided anything satisfactory to believe that he is actually providing the work. From past 5 weeks he stopped communicating at all. No answer on phone calls no replies on emails. Just wanted to warn everybody. Please beware from this Crook.

Scammer Exposed

Operator of revenge porn site sentence for a long time in prison
by Rudolf Faix Monday, April 6, 2015 3:20 AM

In February the operator of the website ugotposted.com was found guilty. Now the sentence is clear: He has to be for 18 years in prison for 31 counts of identity theft, extortion, and conspiracy.

JustitiaIn its judgment, the Court in San Diego, California, remained just below the possible maximum sentence of 20 years. According to the indictment, the 28-year-old Kevin Bollaert earned with his "business model" 30 000 US dollars: he published on ugotposted.com intimate images of women and men given to him by the ex-partners at the end of the relationship for having revenge. He invited others posting the pictures including name, age, residence and a link to their Facebook profile. However, authorities say he ran afoul of state laws against identity theft, which prevent even simple personal information like names and addresses from being used "for any unlawful purpose, including with the intent to annoy or harass."  At changemyreputation.com he offered to delete these pictures from the other website for a payment of $ 350.

Even before the verdict, which ran on identity theft and extortion, Kevin B. was sentenced to pay a fine in the amount of 385 000 US dollars for child pornography. The attorney of one victim announced in his blog post that the victim should have been a minor at the time of the shoot. Accordingly, the Court classified the images in two cases as child pornography, which contributed significantly to the amount of damages. It is also prohibited the defendants ever to publish pictures of the applicant again.

Evidence of the harassing effect was published in the state's complaint against Bollaert. One woman e-mailed Bollaert saying she started getting "nonstop harassing messages" after her photos went up on ugotposted. Another told him she was "scared for my life," continuing: "People are calling my work place and they obtained the information from this site! I did not give permission for anyone to put up those pictures or my personal information. I have contacted the police but these pictures need to come down! Please!"

One Jane Doe victim reported receiving dozens of Facebook and Instagram friend requests after she was featured on the site, as well as text messages with lewd photos and several phone calls, which made her "worried for her safety." Another woman had "over a hundred different sources" try to contact her after her information went up on ugotposted, and she ultimately changed her phone number.

This case shows that nobody can hide himself in the anonymity of the Internet. As soon as a case from a public prosecutor is opened the anonymity gets dropped and the fraudster ends up in the prison!!!
