Are not all scammer from "....." and "........"?
by Rudolf Faix Sunday, February 1, 2015 1:24 AM

Recently I got a message, where I got asked: "Are not all scammer from ..... and ........?"

My answer has been very simple: You’ll find in each country good and bad people. Each country has jails with prisoners in it. The only difference is that countries with bad economics have a higher criminal rate. Depending on the size, the population and the economic situation of the country, you’ll find more or less scammers in it. In every life, whether animal or human, the survival instinct is the strongest one. Only some are thinking that they have found an easy way to get what they need by being lazy. You find this kind in the world of humans and animals.

For this reason don’t bash against a country. Be respectful to each other and don’t let some religious differences stand between you. There are some many different rules for showing respect as countries or areas are at the world, that nobody can know them all. For an example are even the greeting procedures different. In Europe is it usable shaking hands. At the Philippines the younger one takes the hand of the older one and leads his hand to his own forehead. Such a behavior is in Thailand impossible, there each one put his palms with their fingers at chest level close to their body and bows slightly. As higher the hands are placed as higher as more respect is shown. To touch the head of another one is in Thailand the worst case. For the Thais is the head considered sacred and must be respected.

The SCAM with the consultant fee
by Rudolf Faix Saturday, January 31, 2015 2:40 PM

If a consultant has a contract with a client, the consultant has to protect the interests of its customer. It means on the other site round if a consultant makes a contract with you, then he has to protect your interests.

If one of the two parties fails or have different interpretations in a process, the consultant will be responsible and liable. A consultant, who is working for both parties, can run very easily into a conflict of the interests. Therefore is it not possible for him to take care of the interests of both parties. For this he can be only a consultant for one party or an address broker. The prices for addresses are much lower than for a consulting.

The logical result of such advertising: A consultant or broker certifies with it, that he has no contract with his “client”. If he additional hides his identity, then you know already why. Each normal and logical thinking person will identify his advertising here as a scam.

Business and scammer
by Rudolf Faix Saturday, January 31, 2015 2:25 PM

I think that everybody has joined LinkedIn for the same reason, because LinkedIn promotes themselves in the career and business network. Where is business, there you can earn money. Where you can earn money there you’ll find criminals too. Money attracts the scammers like moths to a flame.

Networking means coming closer and make something together. In the case of LinkedIn should it be managing careers and/or making business together. In the human nature is it programmed, that everyone is first thinking about their own interests and not about others. This greediness makes it difficult bringing people together. LinkedIn is not able to check each subscriber. The most of them are only entering as less data as possible by signing up. Once they have their account they will change their data as needed. They even change their names and pictures like they enjoy it. They are able to do this even during a communication.

Every business man/woman knows:

  • Offers, which are sounding too good to be true are coming from criminals

  • Nobody can give money as a gift in business. Everyone likes to earn more than he can give as the sum from the purchase price of the product and the given commission.

  • As higher the promised commission per sale is, as more difficult will it be to sell the product

  • Products, which are not able to sell, are getting bundled with the argument of social work or a charitable purpose like children hospital, help for the 3rd world, etc.

If you are thinking logically, then you would find out already the criminals on their offer on observing the above rules. In every case you should make a background check of your contact before you get in business with him. If you find out something negative, then give him the chance for an explanation.  If the explanation is unbelievable and makes him more untrustworthy, then push him into the public and publish what is your opinion. This will help others in making their own decisions.

If everybody works this way, the scammer and other criminals will not have any chance in betraying others.

Fraud and Scam

Spammer, scammer and the anonymity of the Internet
by Rudolf Faix Saturday, January 31, 2015 1:59 PM

By surfing around in the groups at LinkedIn, I have found only one campaign for call centers, which has been looking like a true offer. It has been posted around 9 months ago and the offer has included everything which is needed to make a decision for a call center owner. The poster got more than 800 positive replies to his offer.

Why in this case the spammers at LinkedIn are posting their offers every few hours and are using all possibilities for hiding themselves in the anonymity of the Internet?

If I’m making a real offer and have a good description for the campaign, then I’ll get a lot of replies and be able to make my choice by posting it only once. It seems that there is something wrong with their offer, as they are posting the same offer many times.

What is the purpose for spamming, if the spammers are not scamming? Are they collecting only email and skype addresses?

Nearly all users are already using free mailers at LinkedIn . This makes an immediately change of the email address possible whenever it is needed. It seems that these users made already the experience that their email addresses are getting sold for getting more spammed.

There is an old rule on the internet: "Don’t buy from spammer, you’ll get scammed". Especially new centers shall think about this rule if they don’t like to lose money.

Another rule is "As better the offer seems to be, as higher is the risk of running into fraud".

If someone is calling himself to be the "BEST", an "INDUSTRY LEADER" or something similar, than this one is proud about his success and is not hiding himself in anonymity, because his name is his trademark.
