Scammer: Mohamed Elsayed - Kevin Steve - Kareem Sallam from Egypt is searching for new victims
by Rudolf Faix Friday, May 1, 2015 4:43 PM

The scammer Kareem Sallam aka Kevin Steve seems to be a chameleon. He is using different names and fake pictures and names in his fraud. All profiles have in common his domains: streamtelecom.net and connect2phone.net.

Actually he has a new idea to scam people. He likes to get direct access to the earnings of the call centers as we can see in the actual posts at LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/grp/post/4092566-5999628717620502532):

In his LinkedIn profile we find the connection to Stream Telecom (streamtelecom.net). The domain streamtelecom.net is registered on the name Mohamed Elsayed from Egypt, a high risk country for getting scammed. Very suspicious is that at the LinkedIn page for streamtelecom.net is written that it got founded in the year 2005 and the domain got registered on January 9, 2014. A company which should have a staff count between 201 and 500 and which should be located in the USA, does not have a website during 9 years?

On the website https://who.securepaynet.net/whois.aspx?domain=streamtelecom.net&prog_id=429246 we find the company address for Stream Telecom

Business Information

Stream Telecom

If we search for a registered address at http://visulate.com/rental/visulate_search.php?CORP_ID=L14000008986 then we get an output of a lot possible addresses but not a real one.

A search at http://search.sunbiz.org/Inquiry/CorporationSearch/GetDocument?aggregateId=flal-l14000008986-0b7a33a5-d0f3-4dcc-9eda-175f1e7650f6&transactionId=l14000008986-31ee53cd-92b0-49ee-aab5-640768af8a19&formatType=PDF is more informative. We find out that the Authorized Person Detail is:

Mohamed Elsayed - Kevin Steve - Kareem SallamMohamed Elsayed - Kevin Steve - Kareem SallamMohamed Elsayed - Kevin Steve - Kareem SallamTitle: MANAGING MEMBER
Name: SALLAM, KAREEM M
Address: 228 PARK AVE S 38802
City-State-Zip: NEW YORK NY 10003

 

 

At the site http://www.betternetworker.com/members/kmsallam confirms Kareem Sallam that the his websites are http://www.connect2phone.net and http://www.streamtelecom.net.

As the domain streamtelecom.net hides the ownership behind a proxy service, we are more lucky with the domain connect2phone.net:
