Earnings of Thieves Selling Your Personal Data Online

dark keyboardWith a record number of ruptures in the U.S. amid 2014, more individual data is coasting around on the web than at any other time in recent memory some time recently. Yet, your saving money information, well-being records and even your Facebook account all accompany a sticker on the dark web.

The dark web is the place the commercial centers for stolen information exist. The dark web exists on the "deep web," which is the piece of the web that is not indexed by ordinary web indexes, as Google. To get to these dark corners of the web exceptional programming called Tor must be utilized. 

While Mastercard data can offer for just a couple bucks on underground market sites, well-being records keep running about $50 per record, as per a report by Dell SecureWorks. Bank account data is a higher ticket thing and can offer for $1,000 or all the more relying upon the amount of cash is in the record.

Purchasers can even purchase somebody's online networking record for about $50 or get an altogether new character in addition to a coordinating service bill for just about $350. 

Here's a speedy take a gander at what other individual data goes for on the dull web, as indicated by the report:


  • Bank certification: $1,000 in addition to (6% of the aggregate dollar sum in the record) 
  • U.S. credit card with track information (account number, expiration date, name, etc.): $12
  • EU, Asia credit card with track data: $28
  • Website hacking: $100 to $300
  • Copied social security cards: $250 and $400
  • Copied driver's license: $100 to $150


Be that as it may, lawbreakers aren't the main ones paying for your lost individual data. Organizations that are influenced by information breaks are needing to shell out a considerable measure of cash for every record that gets spilled in an information rupture.

The normal worldwide expense of a lost or stolen information record for an organization in 2014 was $154, that is a 23% expansion since 2013, as indicated by a study by IBM and the Ponemon Institute distributed Wednesday. The expense incorporates the legal and investigative work expected to address a rupture, and additionally the expense of wholesale fraud programs for individuals whose records were spilled.

Human services organizations are needing to pay the most with the normal cost for a lost information record coming to $363. Furthermore, retailers' expense per record went from $105 in 2013 to $165 in 2014.

The surge in information breaks, particularly those created by sorted out wrongdoing, is driving the expense of lost or stolen records for organizations, said Marc van Zadeloff, VP of system and item for IBM security.

Only in the US, there was a sum of 783 information breaks a year ago, a 27.5% increment from 2013, as per the Identity Theft Resource Center. What's more, as indicated by the IBM report, 47% of ruptures in its study were created by a malevolent or criminal assault. 

“As you see the rise of malicious organized criminals, they become harder to track and trace and remediate,” Zedeloff said. “These criminals on the dark web are collaborating, sharing techniques and malware and when they break in, they are very good. They are able to stay on systems longer, they are stealthier and therefore they are more costly for organizations.”

While customers who are influenced by a break may be given wholesale fraud protection, there's still a couple of things they can do to take their security into their own hands, Zedeloff said.

To start with, never utilize the same password for different services and change passwords frequently. Second, make a point to have the most recent security on the majority of your gadgets and utilize two variable confirmation when accessible. Also, last, look out for any sort of suspicious action. Whether its a shady email, a companion demand from somebody you don't know or odd action on any of your accounts, be proactive in checking everything from your social records to your bank accounts.

A Scammer likes to reinvent the Slavery: Samad Gour - CEO at CS Live Solution Pvt.Ltd

Samad GourSamad GourAt LinkedIn Pulse appeared yesterday a posting from Samad Gour with an offer that sounds really unbelievable – but from the negative sites view. Samad  Gour posted the following offer, which got found on Facebook in the groups BPO PROJECTS WITHOUT ANY CHARGES, (India’s First Online Mall) and USA – CANADA Business Development Group:


The posting from LinkedIn Pulse:

Hi, USA Non-Voice Call Reviews Campaign Earning 30,000 Approx/month

USA Non-Voice Call Reviews Campaign Earning 30,000 Approx/month

Please find the below Job Descriptions.

The Client Portal has Inbound Recorded Calls & Outbound Recorded Calls, Here Agents need to Login and Listen to the Calls and Need to Answer that Either call has Connected to Employee or Call is not Connected or Call Connected to Voice Mail etc., Agent just need to Tick mark on the Options provided. But Agent need to listen to the call carefully and need to mark correct option. For wrong answer there is penalty of -0.01$. So, you get paid for only correct answer marked by the agent.

6:00 PM to 6:00 AM [IST]

0.012$ for Inbound and 0.008$ for outbound call review

Here agent can do 2 calls in 1 minute,
12 Hours x 2 calls / Minute x 60 Minutes = 1440 calls one agent can do
1440 x 0.012 = 17.28$ (Approx.) / Day / Agent.

Here one agent can earn 17.28$ x 25 days = 432$ / Month / Agent.



Registration Charges : for one ID it's 10,000 Rs but if you are serious enough to go for work ..We can negotiate depending on numbers of seat but not on 5 seats.

This is really unique process where in pay out will come in your account from clients account. It will be daily payout by default in your PayPal account and then you can withdraw from your bank account. No mediator will involve in this pay out all. You will see flow of dollar after every call you will listen. This process can be run in 24×7 shift and for trail purpose you can go for one seat also.

In attachment you will find one video clip of how we can do this work and how you can see dollar after every call.


call -8750051552 (if interested only)

This offer is only a SCAM, because he asks for an upfront in form of Registration Charges : for one ID it's 10,000 Rs. With this offer the scammer confirms, that he has no contract with the client. If he has a contract with the client, then the client will pay him and he has to search for the best center for the client and not for one, which pays him.

The scammer Samad Gour is even not able to read the caption of the group where he posted: BPO PROJECTS WITHOUT ANY CHARGES

The offer is  an SLAVERY offer because:


  • Even in India are 12 hours working time for an agent illegal
  • If you take the offered US$ 432 and substract the pro rata costs for the office rent, the amortization value of the investments into the center, electricity and Internet connection then you'll have to divide the remaining money for two agents, because you have to keep yourself conform to the employment law. For this the provided calculation of the scammer is irrational and from this money nobody is able to survive even in India.
  • Additional you have to keep yourself conform to the rules of the US FTC (US Federal Trade Commission warning: ROBOCALLS)
  • The promoted earnings are the maximum earnings when we add the time how long someone needs to pick up the phone are per call 15 - 20 seconds gone before a human or an answering machine picks up. To get it if there is a human or an answering machine answering you have to be online at the time of picking up the phone.


The scammer Samad Gour has even made a mistake by inventing this campaign. The fixed working time from IST 6:00pm until 6:00am is during the time at the US East Coast from 08:30am until US West Coast 05:30pm. At 05:30pm is rush hour and you will reach mostly answering machines. For this even the working time does not make any sense. Maybe his education exists only in his profile or he has been missing all geography lessons.

The scammer Samad Gour is proving with this offer, that he has no idea about the local law of employment in his country and that he has no idea how call center work is functioning. He thinks that call center agents are robots, which are able to work without any break.

It seems that a scammer needs to make urgently some money. For this he likes to make money from centers. That he shows with the upfront and the fines.

Scam and Scammer - how to identify them

Scams target people of all backgrounds, ages and income levels all over the world. There is no one group of people who are more likely to become a victim of a scam. If you think you are "too clever" to fall for a scam, you may take risks that scammer can take advantage of you.

A scam looks like the real thing or a real opportunity. It appears to meet your need or desire. To find out that it is in fact a scam, you must first make the effort to check it properly. Take your time, ask questions and think carefully before you decide what to do. 

Scam from MonitorScammer are trying to manipulate you by "pushing your buttons" to produce the automatic response they want.

  • It’s nothing to do with you personally.

  • It’s to do with the way individuals in society are wired up emotionally and socially.

  • It’s because the response is automatic that people fall for the scam.

To stop scammers manipulating you into their traps, it can be useful to know how to prevent the automatic response they expect.

One of the believes is that all companies, businesses and organizations are legitimate and okay because they are all vetted and approved by the government or some other authority. That is not like this. Consumer protection organizations have very much work with the companies and their unhappy customers, because dodgy operators and scams are reported to them on a daily basis.

A similar dangerous myth is that internet websites are all legitimate because there are written words, or that it is difficult to set up a website.

It is quite easy and cheap to set up a professional-looking website. A scam website could be used to sell a dodgy product, or it could be easily made to resemble a genuine website, like a bank or credit union website. These websites are often only "live" for a few days. That is enough time to trick people into giving up their credit card details and/or other personal information.

Another belief, which makes people vulnerable to scams, is the idea that there are short cuts to wealth that only a few people know.

Ask yourself the questions:

  • If you know a secret to instant wealth, would you spend your time for telling it to others? 

  • Would you be in need to charge money for the information?

If you find some offers on the social networks, then check first the product and don't look at the promised earnings, Follow the steps:

  1. Overview how you can identify a scammer and bad selling products without making a background check - only by reading their offers with an open mind.

  2. If the offer is still interesting then you should continue with making a background check to avoid getting scammed.

  3. If you have a communication with your business partner on Skype then verify his location with the information in his profile by locating him

  4. If you are still convinced about the offer, then check if you find something about the seller or the product at other fraud warning sites.

  5. Nothing found until now? Make your contract with the broker or the seller.

A list of proved scammer can get found in the menu entry Scammer Exposed.

Offers from trusted and validated brokers can get found in the menu entry Fair Campaign Offers.

if you take a look at the world largest cruise ships at Wikipedia then you see that the average capacity of such a cruise ship is around 4000 passengers. 

Why this offer is a slavery offer?

  • Ship cruises are expensive. The last minute discounted prices around US$ 100/night/person. The promoter of such tours have the problem to sell the beds at a normal way. For this they are offering last minute tickets with discounts up to 75%. Think about how many cold calls you have to make

  • You see in their offer, that an agent has to handle two calls at the same time. That means they don't have already enough money to make a lead generation on a normal way.

  • The center has to rent their technology
    Sorry, but if someone likes that you use their technology, than they have to provide it for free and they have to pay for the time the agents get their training!

  • The center has to pay for the VoIP minutes
    Sorry, but for whom they agents are calling? This one, which likes to earn has to pay for the VoIP minutes!
    They even like to reduce their phone bill, because the transferred call will run on the call centers bill!!!

  • An agent has to make 200+ calls each hour
    That are 100 calls per line and hour. In average speaking time (sorry playback time - they like to use Avatar) is 36 seconds for each call. if I get such a call then I'll hang up immediately. With such a system is a sale not possible. In this case we can use speech recognition too and don't need agents for it. The caller cannot say more than Hello, yes and no in this time.

I would not buy or accept such leads. In such a case I can buy phone directory data too! They are even cheaper.

In summary is this offer more worse then a SCAM. The client likes even to earn from the call center!!!
