How scammers are thinking how business can make them rich can get shown how they are trying to find victims. They are dreaming about registering a simple domain, hide their identity and use them as a lead generation system. It is a nice try, but as we can see it at the example of loanfriends.com is it a big fail. Using the Internet as a lead generation machine, you need to know how you get traffic to your site. Simple making a website and wait that someone will find it, will not help. So you need to know a lot about Internet marketing if you like to try such a game. Anyway, Syed Wasi Haider is calling himself at his LinkedIn Profile to be a "Expert In Lead Generation & Best Quality B2B & B2C Data Provider" and already for this reason, to be an expert, he should know what he is doing. Let us take a look at the result he has generated with his website loanfriends.com. The domain got registered on December 9, 2015 and is now a little bit older than one year. So if we take a look at the Alexa traffic statistic, then it should show us at least a local ranking and a world wide ranking based on the generated traffic and visitors, especially for the reason that the site is getting promoted by an "Expert In Lead Generation". The result is very poor looking like the following screenshot shows us:
An "Expert In Lead Generation", who is using the Internet as source for his work, should know the fact that Alexa is capturing the generated traffic without any interaction done from the website. The poor result from the visitor statistics can get found at the Alexa website too - there is written:
We don't have enough data to rank this website.
Any way, nobody will enter his data at such a website, which even don't use the https protocol for protect their data during the transport. In such a case does it even not help to show the fake logo from the more suspicious "Secure Site Pass" at the website. The same logo got found at the websites from lendrisecredit.com (Creation Date: 2016-07-28), 12monthpaydayloans.cf (a free of charge domain) and fastpaydayloanss.pw. While 12monthpaydayloans.cf shows an empty site already are getting the DNS servers for the other two sites even not found. The search results are still available at Google.
The original symbol, shown on the right, for "Secure Site Pass" got stolen and modified from the website ianhartdesign.com. This shows already the criminal energy from Syed Wasi Haider from Pakistan. He thinks that he need to show only some fakes and he can make the big business. I think that each scammer will need to wake up one time. Maybe he will wake up at the time he ended up in jail.
Such a deadbeat like Syed Wasi Haider is calling himself at LinkedIn to be a "Expert In Lead Generation & Best Quality B2B & B2C Data Provider" and promotes his sham business with the words:
We are data & leads providing company. We can supply you Best Quality data sets for Email Marketing, Tele Marketing & Sms Marketing. We have US, UK Australia & European Countries data. All data will be scrubbed before delivery. That’s mean you will get all Clean data. No Disconnected & DNC numbers will be found in any data set.

A lot depends on your Agents, Pitch, Product, Pricing etc. You won’t get rich overnight using our lists/Data – but if you use them properly, you will increase your sales and profits.
Syed Wasi Haider has an account at fiverr.com too. There he likes to be an U.S. resident and tries to sell the not generated leads with an offer too:
I have Million of USA, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Australia & Other European Countries email address with name. I can also provide you Scrub email address on request. These email address are generated by different Opt in verticals. i am also able to provide you filtered email address. I have email address for different verticals like insurance, Pharmacy, Loan, Mortgage, Diabetic & many others. Contact me for further discussion.
He is even so stupid not to tell in the offer, how many addresses you'll get for US$ 5. It does not matter how many you'll get for this amount of money, because you can be sure, that email addresses from such an marketing expert don't have any value.
As it seems, that he could not sell any of these address collections, he has scanned from the Internet he tries now to use it by himself. Everybody can be sure, that I did not have signed up somewhere or have given someone the permission to spam me, but my gmail address is also in his list, which he tried to sell. So I got the following email from him - found in my spam folder:

Owner at WWPA - Rudolf Faix

LeadsUnion | 2215 mountain court, Colton, CA 92324
Even the offer does not make any sense. Everybody can open a PayPal account and every registered business is able to register for an business account with PayPal. Why someone shall pay any fees for something what he can do by himself and within a few minutes? Even the restriction to receive only payments from PayPal registered companies is stupid, because the most of the PayPal transactions are getting normally done from consumers to business and not business to business. For this reason is the offer already useless. If you enter in Google search the words LeadsUnion 2215 mountain court, Colton, CA 92324 then you'll get the error message no results found back. How can someone trust into such a sham business from a high risk country like Pakistan? The scammer Syed Wasi Haider likes to play man in the middle to enrich himself, but he seems even to stupid for hiding his real intentions.
Another profile from Syed Wasi Haider can get found at instagramcn.com. There he likes to sell his ring made from Sterling silver and Zircon. The offer is dated from June 4, 2016.
The price of such similar rings is in Europe less than € 25. It seems that the transport costs are in such case higher than the value of the ring.
Even here gets a big marketing mistake found. While in online shops is everywhere a price for a product written, is in his offer any price information missing. So nobody has a reason to call him. Why someone shall trust and try to make some bargains with someone from a high risk country? International calls to Pakistan are not free of charge. So why shall someone invest phone calls or shall install WhatsApp and waste his time for buying something, what he can get faster and possible cheaper from a trusted online shop or at the next jewelery shop?
In combination with his other fails is it very questionable how someone would even think about it to make any business with the highest risk for getting scammed by accepting such amateur offers. Trusted business offers and trusted persons are looking very different than this young boy, who thinks he can get rich fast and without doing some work. Only promoting himself as an expert for something is not enough. Everybody can write something at a website and/or into an advertisement. Only credulous people will fallen into such a trap. Real business owner with a little experience are already knowing by reading the offer that it is nothing than a scam.
Scammer are lazy people. Such people are even too lazy to use their own brain. Their own laziness is their largest problem. Maybe Syed Wasi Haider has tried first to build up a real business, but as he even don't have any idea how business is getting done, he has failed and tries now with all possible means to survive. He even does not get it, that nobody needs his offers. Even the other scammers, like the tech support scammers, can use his offer, because their victims are private people and not business owners with a PayPal account.
Not one business owner, who is clear in his head and has all senses together, will accept such an offer, where a stranger can play man in the middle. Even the risk to share his customer database with a private person and the risk to file cases in front of a foreign law court is simple too high. With other words the spam email from Syed Wasi Haider had really no sense and has shown that the sender even has enough brain to offer something useful.
