Offshore Outsourcing & Scammer
Blog about offshore outsourcing and scammer in the outsourcing industry
Scammer: Arexo BPO Solutions - Aman Kumar - Raj Kumar - likes to have a copyright on his scam
by Rudolf Faix Tuesday, March 22, 2016 3:09 AM

Not one outsourcing client is searching for a consultant or broker abroad. For this reason you'll find only scam offers with source from low wage countries in the social networks.

Arexo BPO Solutions is offering in their spam emails a "Direct Client Signup ( UK ) + NO Upfront INBOUND UK HOLIDAY PACKAGE Booking / Customer Care PROCESS". The problem is only that such a campaign does not exist because travel data are personal data and these data are protected in the European Union by law. The law cannot get excluded by any contract like some scammers like to make us to believe. Fined get's the company which is storing the data, in this case the company in the UK, and not this one which get's access to the data (the call center). Not one company from the United Kingdom will take the risk for getting fined with € 58,000 per case. Companies, which are outsourcing some work offshore, like to lower their costs and not take any risk for getting fined. Think about it which kind of customer care you can give to a caller if you don't have access to his data? Do you think that someone will pay you for making small talk with the callers?

Already for the above reasons is the following offer too good to be true:

The scam gets already found in the sentence: "Fix 100% Advance payout Every Month Performance based". How can get a performance based payout calculated in advance? Do they have a glass ball? Are the rolling the dice for calculating your future performance? Everybody can see already how stupid the scammers are. The scammers are even too lazy to think by inventing their offers. The same you can say about the clients from the scammers, because they are even too lazy to think if an offer can be possible or not.

A search in Google shows that Arexo BPO Solutions even does not have a homepage or a domain. Does anybody really think that Arexo BPO Solutions is an existing company? How they can get an outsourcing client from the UK in such a case? All what get found at Google are their LinkedIn profiles for the scammers nikhil verma (2 connections), ankush kumar (2 connections), sumit kumar (0 connections) and a link to Pissed Consumer, where someone is asking without using his own brain if "Zappos is The FAKE Company or Genuine company ... let me know", because he provides the answer by himself at the copied email. There is written:

The Call center or M/s Arexo BPO Solutions needs to deposit a sum of USD $ 1261 ( 2.5 % of Payable amount) as refundable security deposit which is for the Taxation amount as per USA Govt. LAWs for initiate transfer from USA to Call Center.

Already the above sentence shows the stupidity of the scammer and the questioner. Taxes are never refundable and there is not such a law in the USA, that you have to pay something upfront or any kind of security deposit. Taxes have only to get paid in the country where you have your company registered. If a client is not able to pay his own taxes, how he can pay a call center for their work? That example shows already how brainless both parties are.

In any case the stupidity of the scammer gets shown at the requirements in the campaign description (.pdf) too:

Type Description
Process Type Query Handling Calls
Seats 10 Seats (minimum)
Payout Circle Monthly
Payout Per Seat £ 6 per Agent per Hour
Daily Payout £ 6 * 10 Seats * 24 Hours (3 shifts of 8 Hors ) = £ 1440
Monthly Payout £ 1440 * 30 Days = £ 43,200
Converted in INR £ 43,200 * 100 INR = 43,20,000 INR
Technical Requirements 4 MBPS Leased Line + Server ( Min 8 GB RAM IBM X360 with Xeon Processor )
Selection Criteria Priority to experienced Call Center
Fresher may also apply

UK is only located in one time zone. Is someone thinking that any customer will call during sleeping time? Why one company shall hire for 24 hours a call center in this case if nobody will call during night hours? Only for trashing money? This case shows that the scammer Raj Kumar - Aman Kumar has no education and is not trained to use his brain.

The next fact showing the scam are the technical requirements. These technical requirements are showing that the scammer Raj Kumar - Aman Kumar has never seen the real requirements for a call center. VoIP calls are generating only network traffic. For which purpose he likes to use a computer with Xeon processor? VoIP systems are mostly running on Linux systems, which are optimized for AMD processors. VoIP systems have not really some extensive requirements to the hardware. A processor from a simple old PDA is able to handle more 200 calls at the same time. On a 4Mbps leased line you can handle without any problems more than 100 concurrent calls. How are 10 agents able to handle 100 concurrent calls? The scammer demonstrates with his technical requirements only his own technical incompetence.

The laziness from the scammer Arexo BPO Solutions - Raj Kumar - Aman Kumar gets found in the procedure description (.pdf) and in the Letter of Approval (.pdf), which everybody gets who is applying for the scam offer. The letter of approval has at the first page written:

© 2009–2016 ­ "lastminute.com", "lastminute", "Top Secret Hotels", and "Top Secret" and the colour magenta are all trade marks owned by LMnext UK Ltd.

APPROVAL/INVITATION/NDA LETTER For
LASTMINUTE.COM (LMNEXT UK LTD) Customer Care

(Approved by the Board of Directors on 14 Mar 2016)

The first line shows already the fake of the "letter of approval". lastminute.com is a domain name and nobody can use it as long the domain is registered. "lastminute", "Top Secret Hotels" and "Top Secret" are words, which are normally used in the language and cannot get protected as a trademark. The same situation is with the color magenta.

The big words "Approved by the Board of Directors on 14 Mar 2016" have no value, because they are not written on any company note paper. Everybody could have written the content and there is not one manual signature found on the approval letter. Does anybody think that a real company make their contracts on this way, written in a poor form with empty pages between, pages with a half sentence and half filled pages? Such an idea can have only an uneducated, stupid scammer like Raj Kumar - Aman Kumar from Arexo BPO Solutions.

We find the scam inside the fake "Letter of Approval (.pdf)". There is written:

Lastminute.com Is charging 500 £ GBP from Call Center as Documentation Preparation charges for SLA which includes advocate fee for Govt. authorization in UK and preparation of SLA Agreement.

In the above statement likes the scammer Raj Kumar - Aman Kumar make us to believe that lastminute.com even does not have £ 500 for the fees or their own contracts. This shows the advance fee scam from a campaign offer "without any upfront".

That the "Letter of Approval" got written from a dirty scammer like Raj Kumar - Aman Kumar gets shown that not one company is using the expression "GBP" and "£" together and the letter has even not the value of the traffic for getting transmitted as an email attachment. The scammer Raj Kumar - Aman Kumar even likes to get they payment for lastminute.com on his own bank account:

Aman Kumar
State Bank Of India
A/c No: 20209504480
IFSC CODE: sbin0001859
LUDHIANA

For the case someone believes that one company will accept or suggest such payments to bank accounts of strangers, this one should go immediately to the next madhouse for a complete check-up. Cleaning the streets would be a better job for such a person than trying to make business by himself.

All the facts together are showing that Aman Kumar alias Raj Kumar is nothing else than an uneducated, stupid, lazy and idiotic scammer which is even not able to use an word processing software. He like to impress only with big words.

 

The scammer Mel Puleo thinks that the sun is shining 24 hours a day
by Rudolf Faix Monday, March 14, 2016 1:24 AM

C Mel Puleo profile picture LinkedInAs Mel Puleo is providing false information or a notorious liar, he will fail in each business. Not one street team, call center, distributor or salesman will be able to sell something by promising the blue from the sky and shipping trash. Someone, which is interested into solar systems will inform himself and know the prevailing prices. Call centers are only able to generate leads for selling a solar system and are not able to make a final contract for a solar system which has the double price as which is normally usable at the market. Not one will buy a system, which has a price of US$ 40,000 during a cold call. Already this fact shows that Mel Puleo is with his dreams far away from any reality.

At Alibaba Mel Puleo is offering with the title **** No More Electric bills 4 Ever! *** Distributors wanted ZERO OUT OF POCKET (.pdf) solar systems with a nominal capacity of 10 kWp, 20 kWp and 60 kWp at a price between US$ 40,000 and US$ 200,000.

The problem is only that the smallest solar system with a capacity of 10kWp needs the place for 40 collectors. Each collector needs the place of 1.65m2 (13.93 yd2). In total is a place needed of 66m2 (78.94 yd2). Such a system does not fit on all roofs, because not one module is allowed to get a shadow during the full day (for example from a chimney) and all solar modules need to be adjusted to the direction sun.

The offer found at Alibaba is highly overpriced. For example we can find at Anapode Solar (warehouses in California, Colorado, New York and Pennsylvania) a similar offer for a price between US$ 22,640 (Canadian Solar 260Wp Panels) and US$ 25,070 (Hundai 275Wp Panels) with all options included (without the off-grid option) and free shipping included.

His offer is even misleading, because all solar systems are nominated in kWp (kilo Watt peak) and not in KWH (kilo Watt per hour). The energy production is depending on the hours the sun is shining and their intensity. Anyway if it is only a type mismatch or not, the scam can get found in the sentence:

Our 10KWH Produces 87,600-KWH , Our 20-KWH produces 175,200KWH, AND our 60KWH commercial unit produces 525,000-KWH per year

It seems that the sun shines 24 hours a day for the stupid scammer C. Mel Puleo. Let's make a simple recalculation of his naive fallacy: 10 kilo Watt per hour * 24 hours a day * 365 days per year = 87,600. That is simple wrong and shows that the scammer does even not know something about the product he is offering. He even does not understand the difference between sun (solar) and moon (lunar)! For the case that he has been really got an education from an University like he has written in his LinkedIn profile, than this education has been from a very poor quality.

I have calculated for the best orientation (180° S and 40° slope) from a location in Kansas (37.44°N / 98°W) looking for me to be more or less in the middle of the U.S. - for the offered solar systems a result for 10 kWp a yearly total of 17,000 kWh, 20 kWp a yearly total of 34,000 kWp and for the 60 kWp system a yearly total energy production of around 102,000 kWp. Here are the results for the optimal orientation and optimal installation of the solar modules:

10kWp
20kWp
60kWp

It is possible to improve these values a little bit with auto adjusting of the orientation from the solar panels, but that will not bring a big improvement of the results. It seems that the scammer does not know that a solar system is less power producing during cloudy days.

I have used the data from meteoblue.com. You can get similar results by using the online calculator from the PVWatts Calculator from NREL. NREL is a national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, operated by the Alliance for Sustainable Energy, LLC.

Summary: For his victims does it not make any difference if they are getting scammed from C. Mel Puleo's stupidity, incapability or by indent - the result is for them the same. My opinion is as Mel Puleo provides different information about himself, is scamming call centers and does not care about his own offers for end users that he is nothing else than a scammer and never a serious business man. For the case that he got scammed by himself than he guilty by himself too, for trusting someone and not verifying the provided information. In such a case he has failed against his commercial due diligence.

@C. Mel Puleo: An attorney and a law court cannot replace missing intelligence and intelligence is not commercially available. Don't go in the the sun if you have butter on your head.

Scammer Exposed

The scammer Mel Puleo shows what he understands as a proof
by Rudolf Faix Sunday, March 13, 2016 7:16 AM

Facebook profile picture from C Mel PuleoThe scammer Mel Puleo tries to spam the comments to this blog with faked proofs. On the same way he confirmed that he is living in Costa Rica, has a registered company in Florida, at an address which seems to be nothing else than a mail forwarding service. He also shows us in his social network profiles how much he is understanding about providing matching information.

We find at the intro section at the Facebook profile from C Mel Puleo the following information:

  • Self-Employed - that is not really the same information, which can get found at his LinkedIn profile where he calls himself to be a CEO and Chairman at C. M. Puleo Consulting, LLC

  • Went to Saddle Brook High School - located at 355 Mayhill St, Ste 1, Saddle Brook, New Jersey 07663. Compared with his LinkedIn profile where he provides the information that he has visited the Felician College located at One Felician Way, Rutherford, New Jersey 07070.

  • Lives in San José, Costa Rica - while he likes to tell us at his LinkedIn profile that he is living North Miami Beach, Florida.

  • From Potchefstroom - a city located in South Africa

I think that everybody will understand that someone can forget where he has been living and where he has been going to school especially if he had such an unsteady like C. Mel Puleo. Mel Puleo has been coming from South Africa to New Jersey, has a company in Florida and ended now up in Costa Rica, where the average yearly income is around US$ 6,810 (information provided from costarica.com - last updated Feb 05, 2013). Maybe this is the reason why C. Mel Puleo has already many times forgotten to pay the centers for their work?

Compare it by yourself. Here is a screenshot from the scammers profile at LinkedIn:

LinkedIn profile from C. Mel Puleo

Her you'll see a screenshot of the scammers Facebook profile including the intro section:

Facebook profile from C Mel Puleo

I think that C. Mel Puleo has not been at any high school or university if we take a look at the proofs he likes to provide. He thinks that if he writes something by himself under another name it will get accepted as an proof for something. You only need to compare the email and IP address provided by the service from disqus.com to see that the comment postings are done from the same person and from the same place. That is nothing else than spam and for me a proof that C Mel Puleo is only running a sham business. Here is an example of the self-congratulation of C. Mel Puleo:

Screenshot from the Disqus.com moderation section with a comment from C Mel Puleo

Another spam example from the scammer C Mel Puleo is shown in the next screenshot:

Screenshot from the Disqus moderation section with a comment from the scammer C Mel Puleo

Which value can such comments have? C Mel Puleo writes something by himself under another name and without any valid contact details. That is not a proof and useless like each other spam found on the Internet. Such comments can only get taken as an evidence for the scam, which C Mel Puleo is running. Nobody will be so stupid and give any value to such statements, which even cannot get verified. Already the idea to write such comments shows me that Mel Puleo is thinking that all others are dumber than himself. For me is this fact a sign of missing education, which gets found in the most low wage countries.

I'll not list now all his comments one by one. The next three screenshots are showing in an overview how C Mel Puleo tried to spam even the article Scam free campaigns - only 3 brokers got found during the last year and did not get it that each comment needs to get approved because my blog is not a platform for scammers and spammers. I'll approve normally every comment, even negative ones and I write a reply to it if I don't have the same opinion, but I will not approve fake evidences and self-congratulations.

Screenshot from the Disqus comments done by C Mel Puleo 1/3

Screenshot from the Disqus comments done by C Mel Puleo 2/3

Screenshot from the Disqus comments done by C Mel Puleo 3/3

As the scammer C Mel Puleo has nothing written about the accusations made in the article Scammer from U.S. - Mel Puleo - cmpuleoconsulting.com against him, I have moved all the comments shown above to the spam folder instead of approving them.

The main facts about the scam in the article Scammer from U.S. - Mel Puleo - cmpuleoconsulting.com are getting found in the own email from Mel Puleo and not at the other listed sites. The other sites like Complaints List, USA Complaints, RippOff Report, Complaints Board, Outscam and Pissed consumer are only showing the victims from the Scammer Mel Puleo.

Even if these comments should get interpreted as "thank you" letters or emails are they worthless as they are not containing any information, which can get verified. This gets shown by the first example of the self-congratulation screenshot where is written: "DelSol Energy Solutions is an established LLC in Rincon, Puerto Rico ...". An Google search returned a DelSol Energy Solutions located at Vista Mar Plaza Carr 115 Km 12.0 Suite #2, Rincon, Puerto Rico. At their Facebook page we find the information: Solar Energy Service · Advertising Service · Marketing Consultant. Their oldest entry is from July 3, 2015. Additional get found a link to their very impressing homepage http://www.delsolenergysolutions.com shown here:

In summary we have here a private US person, living in Georgia, USA, who is running a company in Puerto Rico. This person is a marketing consultant, who is since nearly 6 month not able to bring up his own homepage. Such a person should be a reference for Mel Puleo? I think that such a person and such a company construction is more suspect as Mel Puleo by himself.

Scammer Exposed

Scammer from U.S. - Mel Puleo - cmpuleoconsulting.com
by Rudolf Faix Saturday, March 12, 2016 5:16 AM

C.M. PuleoAs more a scammer is in need of earning some money as more unbelievable are coming their offers. One of this scammers is Mel Puleo from cmpuleoconsulting.com. Everybody should know that the margin in the electronics industry are very tight. As more vendors are coming up on the market as lower coming the average prices and margins. That happens in each industry and not only in the electronics and solar industry.

Some background information about prices and margins are getting found by a Google search. For example is written at CleanTechnica from February 2014:

However, prices vary tremendously by region. “Common residential system prices ranged from less than $3.00/W to just above $7.00/W,” the Solar Energy Industries Association wrote in 2014 regarding 2013 figures. The story hasn’t changed much since then, even though prices on both ends have come down.

Woodlawn Associates shows the possible margins a little bit better in their article The Economics of Residential Solar Installation:

The average dealer in our most recent project had revenue of $4.60 per Watt DC ($5.54 per Watt AC) over the past 12 months. The typical dealer had a cost to install of $3.71 per Watt — 80% of revenue. Earlier this year, we found dealers spend an average of 17% of revenue to acquire customers. This leaves only 3% for general and administrative expenses and profit, suggesting typical installer profits are slim. Consider that over the past year Real Goods Solar, the only publically traded firm in the residential installation industry, had G&A expenses alone that averaged 6% of revenue. (Real Goods also lost money during this period.)

The above example shows that not more than 15% - 17% from the complete costs of a solar system can get used for acquiring customers. Don't forget that the costs from Mel Puleo and her C.M. Puleo Consulting company are already included in these costs as he is nothing else running than a consulting company and the trading company makes already no earnings by paying these commission rates. Who will work for free?

By observing the facts from above you need to take a look at the spam offer from Mel Puleo - C.M. Puleo Consulting:

From: Mel Puleo, Solar [mailto:mel@cmpuleoconsulting.com]
Sent: Friday, March 11, 2016 7:33 PM
Subject: Re: Highest Payout for Solar campaign up to 7K/sale

To whom it may concern:

Our company is seeking experienced Telemarketing center in sales. The solar energy industry is growing rapidly in CA and we are building our sales team to meet the demand.

Compensation for each sale can range from $4K to $10K and beyond.

This is the most competitive Compensation in the industry bar none.

$500.00 commission is paid upfront the following week on every sale, the rest gets paid out on install [30/35 days out from the date of sale]

Our Floor commissions include “NO Adders”, this means you keep 100% of your earned compensation, no other Company offers this, and can typically eat away at your overall commission by 30 to 60%.

We will only entertain nothing less than 10 agents to start.

If you're 100% confident, you have killer closers & you feel that your center has what it takes to close over the phone, we have the best trainer in the industry “BAR NONE” that will walk you by the hand until you can fly on your own.

We are also looking for Appointment Setters, call for comp plan.

Feel free to contact us via skype or thru the phone listed below.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you.

Mel Puleo

mel@cmpuleoconsulting.com

skype: carmine-puleo

The scam gets already shown in the above sentence "Compensation for each sale can range from $4K to $10K and beyond", because a typical solar energy installation for house has less than 5kW and has a usually price range of less than US$ 20,000. If we calculate from this price the maximum from 17% total paid commission than we get including the earnings from C.M. Puleo Consulting only US$ 3,400 and not US$ 4,000 like written in the email offer for the center.

If we take a look at the site Recruiter about the average income from a solar sales representative, than we'll find there the following statement:

A Solar Sales Representative or Assessor gets a compensation ranging between 64000 and 96000 depending on experience and domain knowledge. Solar Sales Representatives and Assessors earn a compensation of Eighty Four Thousand Four Hundred dollars each year.

An average income from US$ 84,400 per year equals to US$ 7,033 per month. Such a sales person needs only to sell two solar systems per month to be a profit for his company if the commission for each sale is US$ 4,000.

As the salary from the sales representative cannot get replaced with telemarketing agents how many sales such a sales representative needs to make per day that the telemarketer and the sales representative are able to earn their income?

Don't forget that from the before calculated total possible commission of US$ 3,400 per sale has to get paid the telemarketer, the sales representative and C. M.Puleo Consulting Company. I hope everybody sees now the scam in the offer above.

Real companies are going offshore for increasing their earnings by lowering their cost per sale and not to spend more. Especially in the technical industry are the margins very tight and each company tries to reduce their own costs. For this reason is already the offer from C.M. Puleo nothing else than a big lie. Under these circumstances are coming the complaints about C.M. Puleo Consulting believable which get found at:

A few from the complains listed above got written by the same person, but that does not make them unbelievable. Combined with the other complaints they are making sense. Especially the Ripoff Report from August 2, 2012 where Mel Puleo complains David Hjorth shows the fails and/or scam history from Mel Puleo:

All the above facts are showing what C. M. Puleo is understanding under business: Having an idea and the earnings, others should risk their hard earned money, doing the work and cry for their earnings because they will not get paid and the investment will never returned. I call such a behavior scam.

Already the content of the message shows the character from the person. Instead of explaining where I'm wrong with my opinion, he is threatens only with legal action. The only problem is that he needs to show some evidence in front of the law court. He should also read the full legal disclaimer from this site for knowing my address too. He will need it for selecting the court and in front of the court.

 

Scammer: Asif Iqbal Ahmed - Skype: asifiahmed - +919903326185 - razor0089@hotmail.com

Asif Iqbal Ahmed - Skype: asifiahmed - +919903326185 - razor0089@hotmail.comA partner in crime from the scammer Sebastian Serret - SeptConsult Limited (reports found at Scammer: Sept Consult - Sebastien Serret - Restaurant booking at the Seychelles and Scammer: Sebastien Serret - SeptConsult Limited - is running out of arguments) or the inventor from the scam campaigns itself is Asif Iqbal Ahmed. It does not make any difference in front of the law court which one of the two is the real source of the scam. Already trying to scam someone is punishable by law and both are offering scam campaigns.

He contacted me on Skype and tried to convince me that the offered campaigns from SeptConsult Limited are legal and he is getting paid from Sebastien Serret. The problem is only that he is only a broker of scam campaigns and not a center owner like it gets already shown at the caption of his Skype profile where is written: "INBOUND AND OUTBOUND CAMPAIGNS AVAILABLE..ONLY INTERESTED CENTERS CONTACT.". Again gets confirmed that scammers are even too lazy to think and to stupid to fake some proofs. The stupid scammer Asif Iqbal Ahmed has been thinking that it is enough to tell me that he is running a center and gets paid every month for convincing me that the offered campaigns from Sept Consult - Sebastien Serret are legit. Sebastien Serret by himself has written during his Skype chat: "We will send you proof, reference and even offer you a visit by the end of the month to be able verify about us". That means that there is not one center available until now, which got paid until now and for this reason are no proofs available.

The scammer Asif Iqbal Ahmed is offering his sham campaigns at Call Centers Forum, Call Center Zone, Campaign Provider, News Central, etc.

At Call Center Zone we find from Asif Iqbal Ahmed the following scam offer dated on December 3, 2015:

INTERNATIONAL HOTEL\RESTAURANT BOOKING INBOUND

Hello Centers,
My client is looking for some centers who are willing to start up a decent long term business and develop as time passes. We need centers for our new inbound project on board.
Only Centers who are keen to build up their business tentatively for a long run are welcome aboard.

THE DETAILS ARE THERE IN THE ATTACHMENT KINDLY CHECK AND IF INTERESTED GET IN TOUCH WITH ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

ONLY 4 SLOTS AVAILABLE

THANK YOU

REGARDS : Asif Iqbal Ahmed
+91 9903326185

Skype : asifiahmed

Asif Iqbal Ahmed seems not knowing that big international hotel chains have their own booking central and are giving room contingents to tour operators. He even does not know that travel data are protected since more than 10 years as personal and consumer data by law and not one client can give access to their data. That fact shows that the only thing in what the scammer Asif Iqbal Ahmed is interested in is the upfront fee which the center has to pay for getting a work which does not exists. Not one client will take the risk to outsource such a campaign because the fines are much higher than the amount which can get saved by outsourcing such a process.

Another scam offer from Asif Iqbal Ahmed gets found at Call Centers Forum with the dated on September 23, 2015:

PPI OUTBOUND AVAILABLE FOR UK

Hello centers,

The campaign is with regards to PAYMENT PROTECTION INSURANCE.

LEADS : YES
VOIP : YES

This fact shows that the scammer is even to lazy to read some news. The PPI (Payment Protection Insurance) has resulted during the year 2014 into a big mis-selling scandal. How can get PPI sold in this case in September 2015? This fact shows again that Asif Iqbal Ahmed is an uneducated, brainless and stupid scammer.

Hopefully is Sebastien Serret keeping his promise from the chat with me, where he has written: "I said we will accept all claims". It seems that the claims will arrive faster than they are expected.

Some people like the scammer Asif Iqbal Ahmed are only born stupid and have nothing learned in their life, spitting only big words without any knowledge.

His stupidity get's confirmed from his Skype chat shown on the following screenshot:

The above conversation shows the low education level or the enormous bad quality in education of the Jogesh Chandra Chaudhuri Law College where the scammer Asif Iqbal Ahmed like to have studied and the Kolkata High Court where he likes to work as written in his Facebook profile. In civilized countries such people like Asif Iqbal Ahmed are even not allowed to clean the streets in front of such places.

Here a screenshot of his Facebook profile (part of his education and workplace):

The scammer is even so stupid that he thinks that I'm afraid to pick up the phone. I'm not speaking with such low level people like Asif Iqbal Ahmed. I prefer the written communication in such a case that I'm able to publish it with copy and paste for the case there is some important information or some information of public interest included.

Update Jan. 18, 2017:
Link from the Facebook profile Asif Iqbal Ahmed (https://www.facebook.com/razor0089) removed as it returns error 404 - not found.
