Windows 10 Software as a Service
by Rudolf Faix Tuesday, May 12, 2015 5:12 PM

Windows 10Microsoft is moving to an alternate sort of programming model with Windows 10. A designer evangelist noticed that Windows 10 future the "last form of Windows" amid the organization's Ignite gathering this week, and a subsequent affirmation from an authority Microsoft representative uncovered (by means of the Telegraph) that, in reality, redesigns to Windows after that discharge would take after an incremental way that would prompt progressing changes, rather than splashy, more intermittent numbered dispatches.

Seemingly, its a change that has been dynamically happening following the time when the simple and reasonable accessibility of Internet network went to the PC. Programming organizations have been discharging consistent overhauls for their applications, working frameworks and firmware through Internet association progressively after some time since it got to be functional to do as such. Be that as it may, Microsoft's choice to completely grasp this denote a huge change in the way it imagines, markets and offers its desktop OS.

Different organizations have as of now completely grasped this turn in the methods and nature of programming dispersion; Adobe, for example, is all on its Creative Cloud model, which sees supporters make good month to month expenses for access to desktop projects like Photoshop and Illustrator in return for continually having the most current form and highlights. Adobe makes this more alluring with a scope of supporting administrations, including its Creative Cloud adjusting record stockpiling.

Microsoft has, particularly under new CEO Satya Nadella, made the move to wind up considerably more of an administrations organization. Placing Windows into that heap of administrations would be a solid move toward upping the general worth recommendation of the entirety. Furthermore, moving to an all the more step by step iterative model would likely have advantages as far as designing asset distribution and keeping pace with the inexorably quick reception bends of new tech.

It'll be fascinating to perceive how the business model movements with this change: Microsoft has reported that Windows 10 will be a free redesign for qualified gadgets for the first year after 10's official dispatch, yet apparently on the off chance that its topping that despite everything it'll be looking to drive income from offers of the OS. Maybe it could get to be a piece of a bigger administrations package that develops what Office 365 as of now gives.

Fake Scam Alerts - Is it only a revenge?
by Rudolf Faix Monday, April 27, 2015 4:41 AM

From time to time someone sends out some scam alerts without any proves. If this happens then your alarm bells should ring.

The last scam alert I got, has been:

From: Name of the Scammer [] 
Sent: Sunday, April 26, 2015 10:26 PM
To: Name of the Scammer
Subject: Scam Alert! Beware of Company name of the Scammer Name of the scammer, Partner of the scammer, Spoofed LinkedIn Account Name of an Author
Content of the email in big red letters without any proof

My answer to the sender of the email is very simple:

  • If you got really scammed from this guy’s then you are guilty by yourself, because in Ripoff-Report exists already since 2011 an entry about this scammer. We have now 2015!!! To believe to the promises, not making any research or background check shows only your own greediness.

  • If you are sending out an email without any proves about your complaint and this email gets even sent from a one way email address, then you are even afraid from some follow ups. That makes the complete content obsolete. You have only uses some Internet bandwidth, which could get used for something better.

  • You even did not provide any link to the fake profile or to an offer of the scammer, which could get reviewed. A search at LinkedIn, Facebook and on Google did not bring up any offer from the involved parties. So what do you like to complain? With such an email you have documented only your own stupidity.

  • I see in your email only that you try to defame someone or you like to have a revenge for something. For this you are hiding yourself. This does not make you better than a scammer.


If you got scammed, then you should be able to prove it in your complaint. Simple write something without any prove and hiding yourself does not really help others.  Your intentions can get misinterpreted.

Scammer: Castle Pension Solutions - - Paul Rowe - Nick Danks
by Rudolf Faix Friday, April 24, 2015 4:47 PM

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

The posting from Raj Sharma:

Beware!!Beware!!Beware!!Beware. is a fraud.
Paul Rowe,the con-man and owner of 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 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.
Paul Rowe.
Registrant's address:
21 Simonburn
Tyne and Wear
NE38 0NJ.

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

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 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 - - Paul Rowe - Nick Danks should file a complaint with their proves at

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. 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 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:

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:

Screenshot from - an online shoe shop without showing any prices and without any imprint

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.” (

The domain 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 – another scam site

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?

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 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.

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 - shows, got the content from 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 is nothing else than a scam. It is a copy from the website

Austrian trial: Facebook reproaches Schrems “pseudo-class action”
by Rudolf Faix Friday, April 10, 2015 11:37 AM

If the class action lawsuit by 25,000 Facebook users, who are represented by Max Schrems, approved in Vienna in court? That has been the question on Thursday at the beginning of the trial.

Max SchremsOn Thursday, the largest European Data Protection class action was heard on Regional Court for Civil Matters in Vienna in Hall 8. 25,000 Facebook users support the lawsuit, including 3700 Austrians.

At the start of the trial, it was mainly about the competence of the action in Vienna. Facebook denied that the Regional Court in Vienna has the right site to sue the US company. "Facebook has the opinion that they are nowhere actionable. Not in Eire, not in Vienna" explained the lawyer of Max Schrems in his plea that was directed especially to the many media representatives present in the room.

The hype was extreme. Many international journalists were represented. Schrems said: "The media coverage is bizarre. But if less through my activism, but rather caused by the defendant."

Not a "US-style class action"

The Viennese law firm acting for Facebook, called the class action as a "pseudo-class action". "The civil procedure law has no US-style class action, the applicant can go to California, where such methods are permitted." Said the Facebook lawyer Nicholas Pitkowitz in the courtroom from.

"Facebook does not want to be sued. Users do not need to travel to a country where they are not native. The idea of European legislation provides that every consumer can make at his residence claim the right to sue" replied the lawyer from Schrems, Wolfram Proksch.

Reproach: Schrems wants to earn money

The attorneys at Facebook imputed Max Schrems, who represents the Class Members that he is by himself not a consumer. "There is no privacy forum where Schrems is not at the podium," the argument. Reproach: he would make money.

This denies the attorney of Schrems in front of the court. Schrems is living from rental income and a minor job in a company. As evidence he presented the bank statements, as well as the Facebook profile entries that Schrems is making as a consumer. Schrems was still regularly active on Facebook.

Schrems even add at the hearing that he usually do not earn money by privacy panels. "I do not need much in life" said the doctoral student who continues his law degree at the University of Vienna. The question of whether he had ever been thinking to ask for a trade license was laughing denied by Schrems .

Privacy activists

Discussed got also that Schrems is called a "Privacy activists". His answer: "It is politically important to me, to do something for the privacy."

The 500 euros, which will be sought in the context of class action, should also be paid to other consumers. It is therefore not a "debt collection agency," as it Facebook has also accused in the process. The lawyers of Facebook also stiffen on quotes from media reports, on which they intend to nail Schrems.

"Student group"

In front of the court Schrems cleaned up with the myth of the “Vienese student group”. There had been about five friends who have also made a request for information to Facebook. A student group, had never existed. The association "" exists. The attorneys at Facebook Schrems also tried to bring him out of concept with leading questions about his "employees".

But according to the lawyers of Facebook is it not possible to assign the rights of consumers to another consumer. The lawyer of Schrems brought the following example: "Just imagine that you have a friend in an EU country and get him a gift from Amazon. However, the product is insufficient. In this case the consumer can also cede claims."

No evidence of capacity

The attorneys at Facebook argued, however, also before the court so that Schrems did not adduce any evidence that proves the "capacity" of the Class represented by him. As these users have agreed to the terms and conditions, they were very well competent.

This Facebook subordinate to its users again "mass insanity" as Schrems already said his opinion on the written statement from Facebook. "For Facebook are their users only a data resource" can get read on Twitter.

Schrems stated at the hearing that he has requested passport or identity cards from all 25,000 class members, which have given a declaration of assignment, to verify the authenticity of their accounts. "These data are on an offline laptop with special hardened Linux operating system," Schrems said. The assignments have been cross-checked.

Also theme has been that Schrems had already introduced during 2011 complaints to the Irish data protection authority and therefore from the perspective of Facebook  Schrems cannot sue in Austria. The attorneys at Facebook saw this as a problem. Schrems claimed to have withdrawn 22 of the 23 complaints already in July 2014.

The survey by the lawyers of Facebook was like an interrogation. Schrems was practically forced to disclose private details of his "friendships". Schrems said, after the hearing: "They have dug every crumb, there is." The lawyers of Facebook already informed before trial to not answer and questions after the first day of the trial.

Schrems was compared to the numerous journalists less taciturn: "I see my chances are good, otherwise I would not do the work myself." He likes to change anything in general and to enforcing all our fundamental rights.  “Will be our data in the future secure? That is the reason for the trial. Not to responsibilities", he referred to the fact that it did not go in the negotiation of content to privacy. "This is the strategy of Facebook, not to talk about data protection." The allegations of Facebook that he wanted to make money have been "totally baseless". "I deserve therefore not one cent."

The Regional Court of Vienna has given both sides three weeks to translate further documents. A decision on the admissibility of the action in Vienna will be given written after six weeks. This decision is likely to be opposed by other instances. Schrems even expects a "long process". "It takes just a long breath."
