Scammer: ippi.com - WORLDLINE COMMUNICATION - Stéphane Haddad
by Rudolf Faix Monday, October 16, 2017 2:35 AM

ippi.com likes to be a SIP provider. He is offering flat rates, which includes Austria mobile (Unlimited Elite - to 150 landlines & mobiles destinations). After a few days and 21 calls, totaling 1 hour 29 minutes and 3 seconds, later Austria mobile destinations have not been reachable already - SIP response: "Forbidden".

At first glance, the offer looks quite convincing. Austria landline is normally offered for less than € 0.01 and mobile for less than € 0.02 per minute. So it is possible to combine them into a flat rate.

By taking a look into the list, we'll find Austria included in the package for unlimited calls:

The "unlimited" offer is not really unlimited. Already for this reason is it nothing else than a scam. In a small footnote you can read:

* calls to 99 different numbers per month in the limit of 60 minutes per call

A limit of 60 minutes per call is understandable. At the time I got blocked to call any Austria Mobile phone number I had made in sum only 21 calls, totaling nearly 90 minutes. So I did not reach one of the limits, but it shows that the offer is a plain scam by calling it "unlimited calls to 150 landlines and mobiles destinations" in the caption.

The first tests have already shown, that ippi.com don't have any customers. That seems to be already very strange for a domain, which exists since more than 22 years. Anyway the systems thinks to know it better, which number got dialed then the one who has been dialing the number. Instead of dialing the phone number +43-670-800 .... the system shows the number +43-436-0800 ....

This error has been in the whole system. Even the call forwarding has not been working for the same reason and the unconditional call forwarding has not been really unconditional, because you could only enter a minimum delay of 5 seconds. The call was also signaled for 5 seconds on the connected SIP phone before it was forwarded to the wrong telephone number.

The problem got confirmed and solved from the support of ippi.com, but it got also shown, that their service is running in a pre-alpha version and nobody has tested their systems before. This got confirmed by an email from the support of ippi.com (.pdf (739.19 kb)):

Hello,

Thank you for your feedback. Actually, the call forward is working but the library creating the format to be displayed on the website has been updated yesterday and had a little bug. We had corrected it. You should now se the correct value.

Do not hesitate to come back to us for any further question.

Regards,

After this problem got solved, the next screenshot shows that the call forwarding to Austria mobile is with a price of € 0.29 per minute at least 10 times higher than from other provider and at least 3 times more expensive than the most expensive Austrian telecom company. Stéphane Haddad shows with such a pricing only that he is a profiteer who likes to get rich quick.

This guy even offers SIP Trunks, but does not know the difference between a SIP Trunk and a SIP User connection by himself. The above problems are already showing that at ippi.com are only working some technical deadbeats. If you sign up with them, then you need to debug their systems first. The problem is only that you'll not have enough possibilities for debugging, because your calls will get blocked as soon you reach in total around 90 minutes. In my case it have been only 21 outgoing calls:

By trying to call any T-Mobile phone number from Austria, I'm getting the following response:

-- Called SIP/436764582456@sip.ippi.com
WARNING[7548][C-000000f1]: chan_sip.c:24003 handle_response_invite: Received response: "Forbidden" from '"Rudolf Faix" <sip:Helmut01127@sip.ippi.com>;tag=as73388ab6'
== Everyone is busy/congested at this time (1:0/0/1)

That the unlimited calling offer is only a scam offer gets confirmed in the following email (.pdf (427.26 kb)) from the support of ippi.com, which I have received 3 days after the calls to Austria T-Mobile got blocked:

Hi,

We have security limit. We are analysing what kind of numbers you are calling, and will get an answer this Monday, if we can continue the unlimited calls to that destination code.

Kind regards,

Support ippi.com

The guy needs already more than 3 days to analyze the numbers from T-Mobile Austria. It have been in sum only 21 calls to Austria landline (11 calls) and Austria mobile (10 calls). With other words is the "security limit" nothing else than a preliminary justification for making the scammer Stéphane Haddad quick rich.

Stéphane Haddad cannot be a serious business man, because a serious business man would calculate his offer before he will publish it and not changing the conditions of an offer after he has got the payment. Changes in the conditions of any contract need to get done before making some business and not afterwards.

Stéphane Haddad seems to be also stupid as we will see in the following email (.pdf (802.91 kb)):

Hi,

We don't understand what you means by "don't respect SIP standard". For the called ID (RPID), we just authorized your account to choose it freely. We need more information about what kind of use you are doing.

Because you are unhappy with the service, we will cancel your subscription at the end of the month.

Kind regards,

Support ippi.com

With the sentence "We need more information about what kind of use you are doing." is Stéphane Haddad confirming only that he does not know for what an account is getting used. The answer is very simple: Making phone calls. In the case of ippi.com could even not get the debugging of their systems done before moving the lines into production.

Stéphane Haddad confirms also that he likes to maximize his earnings as he likes to keep up the useless account until the end of the month. In any case the scammer will have some problems with the authorities.

Scammer Exposed

SPRL Portalinks - voiptraffic.net - from Belgium a scammer who likes to be a VoIP provider
by Rudolf Faix Saturday, September 9, 2017 4:39 AM

This provider seems to be a living room provider, who likes to get rich quickly. At the site from voiptraffic.net, you'll find the information

We offer our service to all VoIP market members: Wholesale VoIP Termination business, small VoIP service providers, callshops etc.

Additional you'll find at his FAQ page the information:

What is the minimum top-up amount required?
We require a minimum Payment of 100 EUR or 150 USD depending on currency of the account. No monthly payment required.

If you sign up with this idiot and make 2 concurrent calls to the same number your account already gets blocked. This guy seems to have a bandwidth problem too, because he likes to change all the traffic to codecs G.723 or G.729, where additional license fees need to get paid for it. In any way a fax transfer is only possible by using the codec G.711. Don't sign up with such a deadbeat. You'll even would not be able to test one of your DID own numbers from another provider.

This pseudo provider does not care about the European law of telecommunication secrecy. He is confirming breaking the law by himself, inside an e-mail to the account owner: "We have called that number and it does not seem like adverting number but something absolutely different.":

Email from SPRL Portalinks where he confirms not taking care of the law

It seems that this pseudo provider likes to collect phone numbers, which he is able to sell to other call centers. This would bring them some additional earnings and would explain why you are not allowed to call many times the same number.

The guy is even too stupid to recognize, that the name of his customer is Rauchecker and the company from Mr. Rauchecker is my customer. So he has sent the email to his customers email address with addressing my name in the content. Our common customer has forwarded the email to me.

I call this guy to be a scammer, because he did not send back the remaining balance from the account until now. As he is breaking the law even by calling the numbers you have dialed, he cannot be any trustful business man. This stupid guy likes to take over the control whom you are calling. He even did not recognize that the reality in the world is different to his dreams. The idiot likes to empower himself over his customers. In such a case he will end up like a lot other VoIP providers until now - at the VoIP graveyard.

If you are following up this article until the end, you'll see by taking a look at the building that he even does not lie by writing "Best regards from sofa in the living room" (I have called him to be a VoIP living room provider before), because it is not possible to test with the service from this provider your own DID numbers. You'll get blocked as you are making 2 concurrent calls to the same phone number. How he has tested his own service? How he could have ever tested if has lost calls or not without comparing call detail records (cdr) from an outgoing system with the cdr of an incoming system? Is he really such a technical deadbeat?

Here an example from his email how he is blocking on a prepaid account:

Dear Valued Customer,

Some suspicious traffic (loop or multiple call attempts to a number pool) has been detected from the account(s) helmut.
Your account has been blocked automatically in order to prevent any possible fraud or billing discrepancies.
Please check this from your side, provide us with the details of this issue and let us know if we may unblock your account.

Here are the details:
suspicious calls to:
16136992231 (2) Canada
16136992241 (3) Canada
--
With Best Regards,
Customer Service

As he did not return the remaining balance until now, I have tried yesterday his service again. The result you see in the email above. From € 100,- on a prepaid account my customer could make only calls for less than € 3,57. During this time he got 2 times blocked. For me it seems that this scammer has used the money for himself and cannot pay his upstream provider. For this purpose he is searching for some reasons to block his customers in the hope that he can catch a stupid one, who pays into his system at least € 100,-.

By taking a look at the Belgium business register (SPRL PORTALINKS company register.pdf (291.12 kb)), we'll find the managers from this company: Jersova, Inese and Jersova, Kristina with source from Latvia. Also their "sales manager", Viesturs Lapins, has his source in Latvia. A rogue who thinks evil. The address Doornstraat 29, 1700 DILBEEK is an additional address from SPRL Portalinks, but their main address is Boulevard Louis Mettewie 95/7, 1080 Molenbeek-Saint-Jean.

A verification of their VAT number says that the number is valid:

In any way, a registered company will not give you any security. A company can run into bankruptcy, the manager can disappear over night and you are not able to reach in the pockets of a naked one.

Fraud and Scam | Scammer Exposed

Venu Gophal - a scammer tries to survive with a revenge posting
by Rudolf Faix Thursday, April 20, 2017 7:26 AM

Venu GophalVenu Gophal seems to be a seldom stupid scammer. He posted on Facebook that Anush Muhammad from BPO Help is a bribe group and that Wizards Technologies, HiFlyer, Hopewell, 2A Solutions, etc. have paid the bribe to get removed from his site. As Venu Gophal is like every other scammer too lazy to make his homework and to use his own brain, he seems not to know that it does not make any sense for Wizards Technologies and HiFlyer to pay some bribe to get removed from one site. There are many more sites available, which are describing the scam offers from Wizards Technologies and HiFlyer. A bribe would make sense if only one site is posting negative things about a company, but in the case of Wizards Technologies and HiFlyer are getting found a lot of postings from different sources and at different sites on the Internet. Venu Gophal is only confirming that he has no intelligence and no education. Maybe that is the reason why he thinks that a revenge posting could help him get his problems removed.

Not one client from the traditional outsourcing countries will search and hire a campaign broker from a low wage country like India for the only reason that this broker can fill his own pockets. A client, who is not able to pay the broker, whom he has hired will not be able to pay the hired centers. So why shall pay a center any upfront fees or the joke of a security deposit?

The attack seems to fit together with the latest posting at BPO Help, where the scammer Sagar Mishra & Synpase Telco Pvt Ltd. are thinking that they have just invented the computing and data processing:

LATEST SCAMMERS: SAGAR MISHRA & SYNPASE TELCO PVT LTD.
The latest SCAM to break the market and loot small and mid sized entrepreneurs is being run by Sagar Mishra, Managing Director of Synpase Telco Pvt Ltd based in Mira Road, Thane.
Other Directors of the Company are Mr Chandrakant Mataprasad Mishra, Mrs Sashi Chandrakant Mishra who are parents of Mr Sagar Mishra.
Synapse claims to have a direct sign up with ICICI Bank for KYC Data Entry. This is a total scam process launched by Sagar Mishra and his team members 'Jia Sharma' aka Varsha.
They are also showing fraudulent authorization papers from ICICI to give out the process but no such authorization has been given by ICICI to Synapse.
Another scam process launched by Sagar & his team is CCPH (Centralized Collection & Payment Hub) which is Cheque Collection process for ICICI/AXIS Bank.

It is a very simple fact and a big failure in the offer above: the bank secrecy makes such an offer impossible. Why one bank in the world should hire a broker that this scammer will find some other people for their processing? That will lead to a big security hole in the fund processing of a bank. Not one bank is so stupid like the Indian scammer thinks about it.

The posting from Venu Gophal at Facebook:

Anush threaten me he will complaint me in police station because posting about him without proof. he told himself that "he is shark for BPO industry .. if he is shark i am hunter ..i will hunt and make fry and eat it
i will give recordings to CBI
i have each and every recording around 45 recordings. i will give what he did conversion with rajeev..those who need recordings ping me personally ..BPO help is bribe group.
1) ONE LADY FROM NEW DELHI PAID UPFRONT TO HIM ,WHEN SHE CAME TO HYDERABAD TO ASK REFUND ,HE HIS RUDE WITH HER AND DID RAPE ATTEMPT .Lady from bangalore did suicide attempt because of anush muhammad
harassment for net link process ,when asked refund
1) Anush ways of managing Bpo help where he's the sole person to decide which posts will remain active as a scammer and which will be removed. Removal will depend on strength of scammer to fill Anush pockets
2)To remove post about sagar mishra,sagar mishra ready to pay 10 lacs but rajeev told to anush that demanded 20 lacs from sagar mishra so that he is behind bar similar to like this he charged money from wizards technologies,
hiflyer , hopewell, 2A solutions those who paid money post will be removed from bpo help
EX: there is no post about hopewell solutions
3)Same principles he's applying on centers also .taking huge upfront from centers and not giving payments to all but only to those who will involve with him to get more centers then only he will pay that center
note: he will use girls profile or use girls to trap centers
if centers directors speak to much,that girls say that they try
to rape us ,if directors is female ,he will do sexual harreshment
many womens not reported about him because family issues and he had good power in mumbai malad police station and local goons
4)Might be after this post if you want to earn lots of money Anush will use his evil weapons(GIRLS) to call you to Mumbai and offer you bribe to remove posts and be his partner in his pvt Ltd company where he does scam with
Asif giving weapon of Malad police station as base to support him including Mumbai police ACP .Like Rajeev smartly did use Anush by asking to join him and after that only Anush went to
Malad and also removed Rajeev who was a scammer once upon a time in bpo help
5)Today both Rajeev and Anush are together supporting each other as end clients and earning too on
sharing basis from recovery and other scam outsourcing process like inbound pharma,
icici data entry and also pan card
6)Anush company name is orbitel. Orbitel Network Infrastructure Pvt Ltd purchased by Anush last month at 5 lacs where him and asif scamming in BPO process outsourcing using dynamic weapons WITH GIRLS .
Anush and rajeev ahuja office
address No:19, ascent business park, 3rd floor, SEJ plaza, Marva Road, Malad West, Mumbai.
rajeevs former company before 2012 Firm name gennex business technologies
He had closed this firm and started new other firms
RAJEEV IS BACKGROUND PARNTER AND REAL PARTNER IS AS ASIF had major role is mumbai malad police station and with local goons
8) he won't take money directly from centers or vicitim , he 'll use some third party ..ask them to put money n there account ..from them he will get it . At least they 'll b in trouble .. to keep there reputation .. they 'll give from there pocket
check below pics about netlink transaction how he scammed ppls

Why Sagar Mishra shall pay some bribe to get removed from one site? If you enter in the Google search line the words sagar mishra scam then you'll get 348,000 results. Why Sagar Mishra shall pay anything to get removed from one site?

Even the argument, that there is no post about Hopewell Solutions is a very poor one. If someone enters at the Google search line the words hopewell solutions scam then he gets 462,000 results. Why Hopewell Solutions shall pay a bribe for getting removed from one site?

All these facts makes Venu Gophal to nothing else than to a scammer who is connected to the mentioned scammers! The only result he got is, that he and his scammer friends are now listed at one site more, where he even cannot get removed for all money of the world.

Scammer Exposed

Scammer Pete Bragansa dismantles himself in his defense
by Rudolf Faix Tuesday, April 18, 2017 5:23 AM

Peter Bragansa tries to defend himself by writing directly into screenshots from my scammer reports. He forgets by his overwhelming intelligence that he is dismantling himself by doing so, because his arguments can get used against him.

His poor arguments are shown in the picture and the attached .pdf documents.

  1. Argument: this is the customer service manager and not responsible for non payment
    Failure in his argumentation: If the customer service manager Ms. Yenda Liboon would not be responsible for something, then she would not get named at the Better Business Bureau. Ms. Yenda Liboon gets named from the BBB under the caption Business Management from the company All Fix Tech. For this reason she is the same way responsible for the company like Pete Bragansa by himself.

  2. Argument: we had a A rating until the bank stopped working in high risk and no place to process; and thus we could not service or refund customers
    That is nothing else than a put-off. He had not enough funds on the bank for refunding customers. Even the bank has cancelled his account because Pete Bragansa has been the high risk. If it would had been really the case that the bank stopped working with him and he would had have enough funds at his account, he could transfer the funds to another bank for refunding the customers.

  3. Argument: after our bank worked stopped working in high risk, we were left in massive debts, and unlike the banks in 2008, we did not get bailout from the government
    Here Peter Bragansa confirms, that for the bank has been his business a very high risk and there have been no funds on his account, which could get transferred to another bank. For this are not his customers guilty and his customers have still the right to get their money back. Why the government should pay Pete Bragansas debts?

  4. Argument: yes a statement like Chase, Citibank and Bank of America made that they were going to go out of business in 2008 without $10-30 billion in bailout each
    Why Pete Bragansa likes to compare his sham business with the business of a bank. He even did not have any assets, which could made to money. Why the government should bail him out? In such a case everybody would take money from the government and nobody would need to work. But who will pay in such a case any money for the government, what can get distributed to the people? Pete Bragansa is showing with this arguments, that he is no business man and is even not able to think. For this reason he is only showing his milk maid calculation.

  5. Argument: when i was 15, I was a janitor at truckstop. it's a joke.
    With this answer Pete Bragansa shows only that he has no higher education. Anyway the screenshot from his Facebook profile got taken on March 1, 2017:



    Everybody can use the website http://translate.google.com and there he will see that the German word "Hausmeister" gets translated into the English words caretaker or janitor. So Pete Bragansa liked to be 15 years old on March 1, 2017? How he can own a company in this case? Minors are not responsible for their doings. Has he opened All Fix Tech in the age of 11? BBB reports that All Fix Tech is already 4 years in business!

  6. Argument: i went to court and fought off the federal government for 3 months and got 1 year probation. Rudolf would probably break down and cry if they got a speeding ticket. after being Charged with 18 federal felonies, the government offered us to plead guilty to one count: of mislabeling pill bottles. I said ok. the first trial ended in a mistrial.
    If Pete Bragansa is using such arguments for his defense, then he even not understands life. He shows that mislabeling pill bottles is a cavalier offense like getting a speeding ticket. As the judge has shown him already one time his limits, he tries now to earn his life support with other offenses. How someone like Pete Bragansa, who has stopped developing himself in somewhere in the age of a minor, be a trusted business man? I think that he needs to come an adult first until someone can take him for serious.

Such people like Pete Bragansa need some protection against themselves. He thinks that such a way is a good defense, but it has been only a dismantling of himself. It seems that he is only able to think with his private parts and is not able to use his brain.

Scammer Exposed

Scammer: Peter Bragansa aka David Gordon - midastechs.com - Tech Support Payment Gateway
by Rudolf Faix Tuesday, April 18, 2017 3:07 AM

Scammer Peter BragansaIn the offer from the scammer Peter Bragansa - petebrag@gmail.com - Tech Support Payment Gateway we'll should find some more information about some people participating in the scam. It should look like, that

... by and between and Midas Techs and its Group of Companies (together known as MTcorp at 511 Avenue Of The Americas, Suite 95 New York City, NY 10011 a USA company, ...

is nothing else than a group of scammers. For the case that someone likes to believe, that the scammer Peter Bragansa is misusing the name from Midas Techs, this one needs to remember, that one condition to enter into business with these shady types of business man is:

INSTRUCTIONS: SIGN ABOVE AND EMAIL SCANNED COPY OF CURRENT GOVERNMENT ISSUED IDENTIFICATION TO centers@midastechs.com

Why shall someone ask you to send scanned copies to his email address at his domain?

What can get proved with scanned ids?
Already this fact shows that the scammer is never a real business man. Copies can even not get used in front of a law court. Cross border contracts have to get signed in front of a notary and the signatures need to get confirmed all levels up until the ministry of interiors and by the embassy of the other country. Otherwise the contract will even not have the value of the paper on which it gets printed.

For what purpose like this idiot to get copied id's? Is identity theft his his second source of income?

There is a small chance, that the scammer Peter Bragansa is the domain administrator from MidasTechs, located in 2017 Glenwood Way, Midlothian, TX 76065. The provided US phone number (707) 564-3275 from the homepage of MidasTechs has the prefix from Vacaville, California and seems to be a Google voice number. At least 411.com provides this information about the phone number (707) 564-3275. Why a company, which is offering PC support, located in Texas shall use a phone number from California? Google voice phone numbers with the prefix from Texas are also available.

Another suspicious point is, that MidasTechs is hiding their offer of support plans at their homepage behind a password:

Does MidasTechs fear that someone will erroneously order a support package from them?

More interesting is the UK freephone number provided at the homepage from midastechs.com. The UK phone number gets found at the homepages adsoclick.com and 247masters.com from the Tech Support Scammer - ADS O CLICK LIMITED - UK Company Number 10219203. Additional gets the same number found at the homepage informationkarma.com from the Tech Support Scammer: Seven Monies Services Ltd. - Geetika Dawer - Arora Ashish located in Canada.

It looks like that Peter Bragansa aka David Gordon needs someone who is making and paying the promotion for his phone numbers. Everybody knows that the tech support offers are scam. It even does not help him, writing into the contract what is all not allowed. He destroys by his own conditions the only one reason why someone would sign up such a contract.

Someone provided the following information to me:

They said that they were MidasTechs at PO Box 8734, Midlothian, TX 76065. This is not a valid mailing address, but it is the address listed on the web site www.midastechs.com. 

Google earth picture from the address of MidasTechs:

Ellis CAD - Property Search shows as actual owner from the property:

Name: HINMAN LARRY & CARLA
Mailing Address: 2017 GLENWOOD WAY
MIDLOTHIAN, TX 76065-7503

An email about the existence of a company with the name MidasTechs or about the expected owner David Gordon got answered from the Texas Secretary of State as following:

Betreff: RE: Question about business search in Texas

Good Morning,

Our records reflect no active or inactive listing for MidasTechs as a corporation, limited liability company, nonprofit organization, limited partnership, or assumed name. Not all entities are filed with the Secretary of State. Sole Proprietorships and General Partnerships are filed at the County Clerk’s office of the county in which they are located. 

Sincerely, 

Brandy Williams

Texas Secretary of State

Some states, like Texas, register fictitious business names or "doing business as" names, or sole proprietorships, etc., at the county level (every state has dozens of different counties within it).  Those are harder to search for because most counties don’t have online access to their records.

But anyone can do business as anything that they want. It is very unlikely that someone might get fined by the state for not registering his fictitious business name, but there is nothing to stop somebody from doing business with an unregistered name.

There are for me a lot of questions open:

  • Why someone should give someone 20-30% from his own income for only getting a payment gateway?

  • Why should a legal company pay for a service more than 10 times the price for what it can get cheaper?
    For a percentage between 1% and 3% is a contract with a real payment processor or a credit card corporator possible.

  • The bounties for foreign transfers are not very low. So why shall someone make an additional cross border transfer and pay additional 20%-30% for the gateway provider?

  • What a center gets really for letting another scammer participating on their work?

  • By reading the contract at Google Docs (.pdf (234.25 kb)), I'll get the feeling that the scammer likes to make himself to the the boss of the center. Who enjoys it to hire a boss by himself?
