Offshore Outsourcing & Scammer

Blog about offshore outsourcing and scammer in the outsourcing industry

Scammer: Ascent Bpo Services Pvt. Ltd - - Manoranjan Kumar - Davinder Sharma

Logo from the Scammer Acent BPO Services Pvt. Ltd.The very stupid scammer - Manoranjan Kumar - Davinder Sharma has tried to post his scam campaign into the comment section of this blog. Already that shows that scammers are get stupid born and have nothing learned until today. Unbelievable but true, these stupid scammers are trying to offer "Data Entry Projects". Already this fact let someone think that they are only on horrible drugs. The idiots don't know that the personal computer is already around 40 years old and they are not the only one, which have one.

Typical for these scammers is that they are not providing a picture of a real person at their social network profiles. Even the names are free invented, like a company can write by herself and without any human intervention some postings.

The spam at my blog had the following content:

Ascent Bpo Services Pvt.Ltd

2- Mortgage Data Entry Project.
call us or visit mo-9555672004
office c-63,sector-2 noida india

In their endless stupidity they are offering actual data entry for for medical insurance and mortgages. I don't know where they scammer like to get the data which should get entered, because such data are protected by law in the traditional outsourcing countries. The fines for breaking the law are very high.

A check at their Facebook profile has shown that the data shall come from the United States (screenshot below). The problem in the United States is only the data protection law, where the company, which gives you access to their data (no difference between online or handwritten and no difference between onshore or offshore) will get fined with US$ 16,000 per record someone gets. So it will be not really something where a company can save money by hiring workforce from foreign countries.

Ascent BPO even lies at their LinkedIn profile. There is written that the scammer started to work for Ascent BPO in July 2012. The problem is only that the company got founded on January 15, 2015 - that is 3 years after the scammer started to work in his own sham company like the (Ministry of Commercial Affairs) tells us:

As shown above has the professional scammer company a share capital of INR 100,000, but not enough money for hiding their identity by hiring a proxy service for their domain registration. That shows that this company seems to be bankrupt already. Like shown below have they tried to trick their domain registrar by delivering wrong data like a street name Singh in New Dehli and the name from the domain owner is only Akhil.

Security Deposit Scammer: HiFlyer Outsourcing - Vikram Pratap Singh - KrunalKanth Solanki

HiFlyer OutsourcingThe well known serial scammer, Vikram Pratap Singh, is still dreaming about getting a security deposit for his sham campaigns.

Everybody is stupid, who thinks that he needs to pay anything for getting some work. If you do so, you are only filling the pockets of a scammer like Vikram Pratap Singh and his criminal staff with the name or scammer profile KrunalKanth Solanki.

HiFlyer is offering actually a video uploading process. If you see such offers you should answer the following questions for yourself to see if the offer can be a true and legit one. If you are ignoring these warning signs then you cannot call yourself to be a business man or woman. In such a case you are even not an amateur business person:

  • Which client is able to offer such a work?
  • Who pays you for a work only for the reason that others are able to view videos for free of charge?
  • Do you really think that one company is so stupid to pay for something where they are not able to generate any profit?
  • Are you really so stupid and think that any video portal lets someone spamming?
  • Why a company shall pay you for something what they can get free of charge?
  • There are getting a lot of free services and free software found at the Internet, which is able to do exact this work. Why someone shall pay in such a case for a manual handling?
  • What do you get and what is the real value of the goods for which security deposit gets requested?
    A security deposit can get only requested for a physical value which is given to you and you need to return it after the work is done. In such a case you'll get your money returned if you give back the thing you have gotten.
  • Are already getting found some negative reviews in the Internet about the company?
  • Is the person, who is offering the job or work in the social networks, showing his real face or does the person don't like to provide a man-hunt picture by himself?
  • Why shall search a client for a campaign broker in a low wage country like India?
  • Would it not be cheaper for the client to search directly for a center from a low wage country?

Vikram Pratap Singh is already a very long time with his sham companies and offers known:

Scammer YMR-BPO - Andy Cooper - I do not know what drugs he takes, but they must act devilishly

Twitter profile picture from YMR-BPONormally you are expecting that someone, who is contacting you by running a business, knows what he likes. It seems that the scammer Yogendra Singh aka Andy Cooper aka YMR-BPO is nothing else than a big time waster as he don't know what he likes and why he is contacting someone.

Facebook profile picture from Andy CooperNice from the scammer is that he is using the same stupid profile graphic (shown in the upper right side) at LinkedIn (Mass-Torts Legal leads | Outsourcing Professionals / Call center Projects | San Francisco Bay Area | Outsourcing/Offshoring) and Twitter (YMR-BPO | @andycooper33171 | Lead generation for Mass-torts & SSD | San Jose, CA) instead of showing his face. At Facebook he has still at least one account by using the name Andy Cooper, is Self-Employed and works at visionay leads and Lives in San Jose, California. There he is using another graphics. This is shown on the left site. Scammer are not able to show their own face because they don't like to provide a manhunt picture by themselves. For this they are using graphics or pictures from the free stock or from celebrities.

The following Skype chat between Yogendra Singh and Lars Christiansen shows us which kind of people are trying to scam others in the social networks. These scammers are changing their name like others their t-shirt. The Skype ID from the scammer is andy.cooper3317, a BPO Consultant which likes to be from San Jose, California, USA:

His real location is a shown by the geolocation from his IP address:

IP Address Country Region City ISP India Gujarat Ahmedabad Blazenet Pvt Ltd

As Google seems to be the largest enemy from the scammers, we fund there under which names they have been active or are until now still active.

Google Drive activity protocol from Andy Cooper / YMR-BPOHe is since January 7, 2016 a member of talend Forge using the name ANdy Cooper using the username andy.cooper3317

At Twitter we'll find now someone which calls himself YMR-BPO, has 25 followers and provides us the information about his Google Drive and his aktual domain

His Google Drive activities (shown in the picture on the right site) is showing the names he has been using until now. Who else should have write access to his Google Drive? Until the end of April 2015 he used the name Andy Cooper. In October 2015 he used the name Sunil Nayar and since January 2016 he is using the name YMR BPO. Maybe he has forgotten his real name already?

My statement that scammers are lazy is getting confirmed with this scammer too. The scammer Yogendra Singh has stored his campaigns at the service from Google Drive and is weekly teasing his 25 Twitter followers with the same content. Only from time to time he is changing the link shortener.

One of his sham campaigns is "Florida Bahamas Cruise Vacations" from APEX DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY INC. (Room Code AP), 111 NW 183 ST Suite 412 Miami Gardens, Fl 33169 with the phone number (305)654-4000.

The funny thing from this campaign is that the centers need to call "BRIDES GETTING MARRIED IN 2012 or 2013 – ANNOUNCEMENT IN NEWSPAPER". Not only that we have already the year 2016 and some of them are maybe divorced already and for this reason not interested in a Bahamas cruise campaign, does he not provide any information how to get the 4 year old copies from the newspapers. This fact already shows that the offer is nothing else than a scam and the scammer is even too lazy updating his own invented campaigns.

Apex Digital Technology Inc. is located at 1931 NW 150 AVE, 270, PEMBROKE PINES, FL, 33028. If you search in the yellow pages from Miami, you'll find for the phone number (305) 654-4000 the entry of Safe Harbor Leasing Inc.

The same way the above described campaign is nothing else than scam you can expect that the other campaigns are scam too. Such people are never running any call centers. They are simple too stupid for it. Such parasites like to earn from the work from others.

Such an idiot from India thinks that he can scam some attorneys. For this purpose he need to have an education from an university and not a kindergarten behavior like he has shown in the communication with Lars Christiansen. In the case of a scam or crime will it not be helpful to hide the ownership of the domain behind a privacy protection service. A judge will interpret this as a planned action and give higher sanctions to the scammer.

Alexa Statistics about masstortlawsuit,org is a big secret in the web as the Alexa statistics shows us. There is he providing the free phone number +1-800-776-7642, which he is providing on other sites too.

Free phone numbers are normally from abroad not reachable and for this reason not easy to verify. I think that is the reason why the scammer YMR-BPO aka Andy Cooper aka Yogendra Singh is providing this number. The problem is only that this phone number does not belong to him. It is the service number from Diamondback Fittness.

Some of his emails.

His FB.

Investment Scammer: Jörg M. Pohlig - WWFN - World Wide Funding

Scammer Jörg M. PohligSomeone who is offering investment opportunities needs to show that he is running a serious company and he is a trusted person otherwise he would not be able to find anyone who will invest into his ideas. A general rule by doing investments is as higher the promoted earnings are as higher is the risk to lose all of the invested money. Only stupid ones believe that there is any investment possible where is no risk. Making investments is sharing the risk with the investors. If someone finds a business where is no risk for the capital then he will go to the next bank and take a credit for running the business. The interest rates for taking credits are already a long time very low. Think about it why someone offers you a higher returns than the official bank rates? The answer is very simple. His business idea has such a high risk that not one bank will give him money or he is simple a scammer.

Such a scammer is Jörg M. Pohlig (other writings of his name are Joerg M. Pohlig and Jorg M. Pohlig). He is already contradicting himself in his sham offers, where is offering for investments bank guarantees. As soon as a bank is issuing an irrevocable bank guarantee the amount of this bank guarantee is not accessible for anyone except the recipient of the bank guarantee. The money remains at the bank account until it gets withdrawn by the recipient. Only the interest rate gets calculated until the money will get withdrawn. The interest remains on the bank account of the owner. Don't forget that not one bank will take any risks in such a case and don't forget that a bank guarantee need to get accepted from your bank too otherwise the guarantee has even not the value of the paper where it is written on it. So which kind of bank guarantee can be used in the investment business? The amount covered by an irrevocable bank guarantee cannot get used for any other purpose.

The scammer Jörg M. Pohlig is offering at LinkedIn:


500K will get you a min. of a 50M (FV) BG, max. is 1B. 1% of FV is necessary, 1% for SWIFT costs after contract is executed; which will decline as percentage as FV increases. All done and monetized within 12 business days.      Only Top Bank BG’s will be issued>>.....HSBC, Barclays or DB.........Infrastructure is set up to take Instrument directly into Trade.

Client receives approx. 34% of FV as NRL.

No limit to how many times Client can participate. NO project required. Client may use funds as they wish. Monetizer may help with investing in additional Buy/Sell if Client chooses. We have high Profit Trade Programs available.

Guaranteed success or full funds returned (Performance Bond will be in Place)!

To start we need Complete KYC/CIS with PoF of USD500K.

No Broker chains accepted for this offer.



Min. FV of USD5M.

Contract within 48 hrs. Closing within 8 days, depending on speed of verification.

LTV’s and Profits depend on a case by case basis.

Please feel free to send your Complete File at any time for immediate review.

*All monetization and trading done In House by our groups own Monetizers and Traders.

Please do not email us and send a text message stating you emailed us. Every action has a reaction and takes time away from moving us forward.

We do not accept: HARD ASSETS (unless precious stones), CMO’s and IBOE’s.

Always need to send KYC with Passport and all pertinent documentation.

Preferred way of communication is Email:

The sentence above "Guaranteed success or full funds returned" is confirming the scam. If any investment would be so secure why he is not taking credit from a bank? There he would get the money cheaper than with the offer here if the investment is very secure. In this case he would only need to pay the interest rate to the bank and need not share any high returns with you. Don't forget investors are very greedy by nature - they are fighting even for fractions from cents.

Antonella MendelsonA partner in crime from the scammer Jörg M. Pohlig is Antonella Mendelson. She likes to be since 2005 at LinkedIn a self employed "Attorney at law" and at Xing she likes to be actually a "managing director" located in Budapest, Hungary. Additional she provides at Xing the information that she is speaking the languages English, German, Romanian and Hungarian. At both profiles, LinkedIn and Xing, she likes to make us to believe that she has attended the Universita Cattolica Del Sacro Cuore. Her problem is that this University is located in Milano, Italy. If she really would have studied there than she needs to speak Italian language too. Even her profile picture makes for me more the impression that she is nothing else than one of the girls, who have offered their services at the street to the tourists after the borders between Hungary and Austria got removed. Under these circumstances is her recommendation for Jörg M. Pohlig, given at the his LinkedIn profile, only a confirmation for his scam:

Jörg is a very capable, hard working individual and is very happy when his projects end successfully.

The scammer Jörg M. Pohlig has published actually 129 articles at LinkedIn, but his website shows the impressing content:

Screenshot from the website

The highlighted Durch sentence "Vraag naar dit domein" on the lower right part of the screenshot above means translated "Demand for this domain". With other words the domain is available for sale. But who will buy a domain together with a negative reputation?

Does anyone believe that one offer can get trusted coming from a broker who is using a free email address from a domain where you can get during a Google search 278,000 results if you are combining the domain name with the word scam? Does anyone think such a broker can make any real business? You can get email addresses with the ending for free and without any verification from Under these conditions take a view at the posting from the scammer Jörg M. Pohlig on July 21, 2016 at LinkedIn Pulse:
Dear Colleagues,

We had issues with our email account and called tech-support who unfortunately cancelled our long standing account all together. Afterwards they asked for several hundreds of Dollars to reinstate the accounts. Rather than struggling for much longer we created a brandnew email. One has to be careful which number to dial for support, I googled this one and thought I was in good hands. Please use this account from now on only.>>
Thank you very much for your cooperation.

It looks for others that his email account got deleted for the reason of his behavior and not for any other reason. Such a reason is normally sending out a lot of spam messages. Especially free services are not allowing you sending spams.

Another World Wide Funding Network (WWFN, LLC) scammer is calling himself Alfred Schubert. Like each scammer is he not able to show his own picture at his LinkedIn profile - he simple does not like to provide a manhunt picture by himself and for this reason he shows the picture from Thomas Müller, Chief Executive at Sparkasse Goch-Kevalaer-Weeze (Germany):

LinkedIn profile from the Scammer Alfred Schubert showing the picture from Thomas Müller, Chief Executive at Sparkasse Goch-Kevalaer-Weeze (Germany)

The website has the same impressing content like

Screenshot World Wide Funding Network

If someone is investing into WWFN then his greed is greater than his intelligence. That fact makes him to be the perfect victim of a scammer like Jörg. M. Pohlig and his cronies. Not one fairly intelligent person invests in such dubious offers where the broker likes to hide himself in anonymity. The looser Jörg M. Pohlig is even too lazy and too stupid for playing the role of a serious investment broker.


Tech Support Scam - German state attorney working together with Indian authorities

Tech Support ScamThe following press release shows that the Indian justice system is working together with foreign authorities for stopping Tech Support Scammers. For call centers has it coming more difficult to run such sham campaigns. On the one site they are getting scammed by buying he calls and on the other site the prosecutors are taking action against them. The case shows that victims of such a scam get at least the satisfaction that the scammers are ending up together with their landlords in jail.

Press release of the Prosecutor Osnabrück/Germany from September 5, 2016:

The Osnabrück Prosecutor's Office and the state criminal police in Hannover determine for some time against a group of online fraudsters who apparently operate from India.

The perpetrators explain in English that the user's computer is infected with a virus, the license expired, or the computer other problems having, and they provide the repair of the computer, the renewal of the license or the purchase of a security program to. Certain data from the computer are received from the callers, so that the victim believes that his PC was infected tat neuter. The perpetrators cause then the called one to download a remote control program that allows access to the computer. After allegedly made repairs, the alleged renewal of the license or the alleged uploading of a security program, the offender require a relatively small amount of money via online bank transfer. Once the called one has entered its financial data in a mask, increase the perpetrators the amount of money unnoticed. Victims are asked to pay before the repair amounts between € 180 and 250 by specifying the credit card number or bank transfer via Western Union. In a number of cases it is to get such payments.

In fact, the computer was never infected and in no case the license has been expired.

Refused the called one to pay at all or so much money, the perpetrators delete numerous data on the computer. In some cases, the computer got locked with a password.

The group opering this scam, the so-called Microsoft Technical Support calls, is a global player. In Niedersachsen, Germany, previously could 779 victims got determined. In whole of Germany at least 7647 people got scammed. This is however only to the so-called bright-field. The real figures will be much higher.

Very fast it became clear that the perpetrators are operating from call centers in India.  A international search order took place in May 2016 due to a search warrant of the District Court Osnabrück/Germany and Calcutta in India. At this search was attended by a prosecutor of the Prosecutor Osnabrück from the central office the fight against cybercrime three very experienced officers from the fields of investigation of the State Criminal Office Hannover, legal assistance and technology part. Cooperation with the police officers in India has been very successful. The Cybercrime special police in Calcutta and the Cybercrime nationality-violence in Calcutta supported the German colleagues intensively and competently through international legal assistance. In one of the searched during Operation Call Center 250 work places were found, from which the fraudulent calls got carried out.

According to the investigators fraudulent calls from all workplaces got carried out. The individual call centers were put out of service, all computers got seized. This had an impact on the number of noticeably cases: Immediately after the search, the criminal charges were very noticeably reduced and they have since not significantly risen since this time. According to the investigators, the call centers have been an important base of operations for the fraudulent calls.

7 accused are in India in prison. From these are 2 persons landlords of call centers and the other 5 are their operators. Prosecutors in Calcutta has opened a so-called mirror case and charged based on the information from the German authorities before an Indian court against the perpetrators.
