Recently I got the information about a unbelievable campaign offer in LinkedIn. The offer is from Virat Singh from India. The way the impressing offer is written declares already the scam:
Australian Tourism Inbound Process with high paying /Advance payment
The scammer Virat Singh seems not knowing why companies are outsourcing into low wage countries and why not one company or client will not trust and not search for a broker abroad. You can be sure as higher the earning promises about this invented campaign are as higher will be the advanced fee the scammer is asking for and you can be sure that the scammer will disappear or will not be reachable any more as soon as he got the money from the center. Even if the campaign would be offered free of charge you can be sure that the campaign is nothing else than scam because a client or company from Australia is by law not allowed to give you access to their customer or consumer database. Tourism data are personal data from the consumer and this data are protected by the data protection law. For this you will not be able to do something with an inbound caller. For picking up the phone, say a greeting and connect the caller with a responsible person you'll not get paid because that can be done from the person the call should get connected too.
The scammer Virat Singh likes to be a photomodel otherwise he would use his own picture in his profile and not a picture from a photomodel. I think more in his case that he does not like to provide a manhunt picture by himself:
Business Development Manager at Gobalio
Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India | Outsourcing/Offshoring
||Christ University, Bangalore
LinkedIn public profile: https://in.linkedin.com/in/viratsingh20
Already the fact that Virat Singh has blocked my profile at LinkedIn is confirming his scam. That this action does not help a scammer gets shown here. I have a few family members, which are allowing me to use their login credentials and with the help of some proxy servers a scammer can even not be sure from which country I'm using other login credentials.
I'm more in worry about the center owners, who believe in such a scam offers. It shows only that they even have not any education, don't know anything about outsourcing work, don't know anything about the law in the traditional outsourcing countries and are just thinking that they are able to get rich just by opening a center. People, who are too lazy to inform themselves about the job and the offer are guilty by themselves if they get scammed.
Everything which sounds too good to be true isn't true. So you should read the previous comments too. Virat Singh has clearly stated the scam in his own comment:
We charge Upfront . Because we are Providing Authentic BPO Projects Contact Only If You are Legitimate Business Man
The problem is only that the scammer Virat Singh is by himself not a legitimate business man. He even does not know who has to pay a broker. A broker gets paid from the company which hires him. He has to work in the interests of the company he pays him and for this reason is there no client behind the invented campaign. The whole campaign is nothing else than an advance fee scam.
Centers if you have too much money support the poor ones instead of such a scammers like Virat Singh. If you are supporting the poor people you'll even are making the world to a better place. I'm sure that if you are going out of your house or flat you'll find enough people which need your support.
Here are the screen shots from the scam offer for the case that LinkedIn has taken the scam campaign already offline:
