The scammer Rajib Singh contradicts himself in the spam email he sent out on November 24. He promotes a NON-VOICE project without any UPFRONT payment for the centers. If you read the email you'll see that he likes to get Rupees 10,000 (~US$ 150.64) as a booking fee which needs to get paid in advance.
It does not matter how high the fee is and how he calls it. In any case is it a UPFRONT or advanced fee. As he likes to be a broker or consultant needs he get paid from the one, which has given him the campaign. As not one company from the U.S. is searching for a broker or consultant in India the scammer Rajib Singh does not have any contract with any client.
Rajib Singh does even not like to show his face at his LinkedIn profile because he does not like to provice a man-hunt picture by himself. Such people are even not using their real name for their profile.
Typical for the scam is the offer that the consultation fee of Rupees 50,000 (~US$ 753.19) will deducted from the first billing and the center has to pay 5% royalty, which is only written in the attached word document. This facts should lead many centers to pay the advanced booking fee. In reality has the scammer no contract with any client.
That the complete campaign is nothing else than scam gets shown if we take a look at the process description:
The process is a lead generation of consumers from US, Canada, Australia and UK. Need to capture simple data like name, address and contact number from yellow pages and other directory sites.
Facts which make this campaign to a scam:
- In this campaign description gets shown that the scammer does even not know what the yellow pages are. As he writes that consumer data shall get captured from the yellow pages the result will be zero because at the yellow pages are only companies listed.
- The scammer Rajib Singh does not know that the data can get bought from the yellow pages. If a company buys these data will it be even cheaper than to enter it manually. The scammer writes in his offer that the client pays per center and per month Rupees 450,000 (~US$ 6,778.67). That makes for the full duration of 18 months for each center around US$ 122,016.06. To buy the data from the yellow pages from U.S., Canada, Australia and UK will be in any case cheaper than two centers are getting paid for the work and the data will have 100% accuracy.
If I compare the price for the manual work then I can get it even cheaper by renting some servers, install web crawlers on it and download the content of the yellow pages by myself. Even in this case I'll get 100% accuracy and I need to pay only 1-2 operators which are controlling the jobs of the servers.
In both cases the client will have the data faster than they can get typed from agents.
- The scammer posted similar campaigns at LinkedIn some time ago, which got negative comments:

He is a big fraud. Do not pay him. He will loot your money decently. His profile is fake. Ask for his real name and address before paying. He will give you another lady's bank address for depositing the money. He will tell you cock and bull stories after deceiving you.
He will give you Bitlanders.com site address. You can register yourself on that site and earn money. He will give you multiple accounts on that site which is against the site rules. Do not fall for his tactics.
