The above email is nothing else than spam from a scammer. The offer is for the following reasons nothing else than anadvanced fee scam:
- Not one company uses free email addresses for sending their offers
- Not one company is sending emails only by using their company name. The staff of the company is sending emails. The name of the person, which sent this email, is missing.
- Typical for a scammer is that he writes everything in bold letters. He is afraid that something can get overseen.
- It seems that the scammer does not have any education and have never seen a bank (loan department) from inside. In such a case he would know that such forms are getting filled directly at the front desk from the bank staff. The customer needs only to sign the printout. How can such a process get outsourced?
- The missing education and knowledge of the scammer gets found in the fact that loan form data are highly protected by the law in the traditional outsourcing countries (Australia, European Union, USA). Such data are not allowed to leave the bank office. Rejected loan forms and data need to get destroyed immediately as soon the case is closed. Not one bank will take the risk and outsource such a kind of data processing.
- Borrowers are normally taking loans from the bank where they are already well known. The success rate for getting the loan is much higher than trying to get the loan from another bank. In such a case the full and relevant business history is already stored in the bank computer and no manual action (form filling) is necessary.
- With the words "Commercial Involved" and "Business Procurement Charges" confirms the scammer that he has no contract with any client and for this no income. With other words are the requested fees or charges are nothing else than invention fees or scammer surviving fees.
- A search for "Star Technologies" at the Ministry of Corporate Affairs in India returned the results Star Technologies and Systems Private Limited from Patna, Bihar and Star Technologies Private Limited from Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. Both locations are far away from the place where I have located the scammer today with the IP addresses (Skype resolver) 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124. Both IP addresses are locate in the area of Gugal Pimpari - southwest of Washim - far away from the companies found at the Ministry of Corporate Affairs.
- Not one outsourcing client will search for a broker or consultant in a low wage country. A broker or consultant get searched local at the place of the the client. The broker or consultant will get paid from the client directly. If some client is searching abroad then he will search for center doing his work directly and save in this case the money for the broker or consultant.
A BPO center owner who wants to have such an offer, can only blame himself if he is gets cheated. My compassion is very limited in such a case. Some people need to learn their business by using the hard way.
