Investment scammer bankglory.com - Advance Finance Business LTD - Bankglory Business Limited

by Rudolf Faix 7. September 2016 06:12

Facebook scammer Sarah DeeIt is funny if one scammer calls other offers scam offers without naming them. With such a behavior they like to underline only the credibility of their own offers. For me are already such sentences like the Facebook scammer Sarah Dee has made, "The best and safest sit for invest" and "Don't waste your time for scam sites", already the first signs of plain scam. An investment broker needs to have a very good reputation and a perfect transparency of his company data if he is using such statements as Sarah Dee has done it at her offer. Not one investor will trust someone who is hiding his identity or using a fake profile.

A check of the promoted domain has resulted that the site has been 33 days old and has used a privacy protection service from Scottsdale, Arizona. The complete domain registration data can get found at the end of this article. That is already a fact what is speaking against a transparency of information from an investment company. This result I have posted as a comment on Facebook:

Additional makes it a lot of sense if a company uses a privacy protection service and write their address, "71-75 Shelton Street, London, UK WC2H 9JQ", on the website. Additional they are promising at their website unbelievable returns for investments. You should get 2% daily for 100 days if you are investing at least $20 or if you invest $50 for 30 days you'll shall get 5% daily. I hope that I don't need to mention that such a high return rate is nothing else than scam and shall lead you to forget about all risks and open your wallet immediately. Additional are they offering "At Bankglory we offer an incentive of total 5% commission on every investment you refer through your referral traffic. So the bigger investment you bring more money you will earn.". It shows only how urgently the scammer needs to get some money.

The scammer is so stupid that he offers investments in US$ and rules which are only in the U.S. valid by providing an UK address and ignoring the European Union completely. You can be sure that the provided address on the website is nothing else than a mail forwarding service. This fact gets confirmed by the UK companies house, because at the same address are 7,640 companies registered. If you are thinking now about a big building with many companies in it then you need to take a look at Google Streetview for getting enlightened.

Each company from the European Union needs to have according to the law an imprint at their website. At http://bankglory.com/index.php?a=rules we'll find the real name from the website, which got copied or used from the scammer. There is written: "Advance Finance Business LTD which operates Bankglory.biz". The domain bankglory.biz has existed, but got already shutdown. Now the scammer is using bankglory.com and calls his sham company Bankglory Business Limited. As shown before is the scammer very lazy and did not replace the company name at his rule site, so he has still forgotten registering his new company Bankglory Business Limited at the UK companies house.

The company Advance Finance Business LTD is still registered with the enormous capital of GBP 1 but does not have a director since March 2016:

UK Companies House company registration data of Advance Finance Business LTD:

Company number 09839391
Registered office address: 71-75 Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, United Kingdom, WC2H 9JQ
Company status: Active
Company type: Private limited Company
Incorporated on: 23 October 2015

UK Companies House filing history of Advance Finance Business LTD:

Statement of capital on 2015-10-23: GBP 1

UK Companies House directors of Advance Finance Business LTD:

0 current officers / 2 resignations

BILL, Arlene Rose
Correspondence address: 71-75, Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, United Kingdom, WC2H 9JQ
Role: RESIGNED Director
Date of birth: October 1964
Appointed on: 23 October 2015
Resigned on: 8 November 2015
Nationality: British
Country of residence: United Kingdom
Occupation: Director

PITTARD, Christopher James
Correspondence address: 71-75, Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, United Kingdom, WC2H 9JQ
Role: RESIGNED Director
Date of birth: December 1969
Appointed on: 8 November 2015
Resigned on: 2 March 2016
Nationality: British
Country of residence: United Kingdom
Occupation: Director

It looks like the directors from Advance Finance Business LTD have an ejection seat. The first director got fired after 2 weeks and the second director got fired after 4 months. More plausible is that the scammer did not have enough money for paying the directors service. Since the begin of March 2016 the company is without a director. So who will pay you in this case if nobody is there who can sign your paycheck?

Scammer: Gerardas Norkus - paid-to-read-email.com

by Rudolf Faix 9. November 2015 12:01

It seems that the scammer Gerardas Norkus is running with his domain paid-to-read-email.com a lead generation system for other scam and malware sites. The scam gets already found at the faq's of the website paid-to-read-email.com. In these FAQ and his terms and conditions he thinks that he can stand over the law of the European Union. The site paid-to-read-email.com is registered in Lithuania and Lithuania is a member of the European Union. For this the scammer Gerardas Norkus has to respect the ecommerce law and the consumer protection law of the European Union. Maybe the scammer thinks that Lithuania still belongs to the formerly USSR. It would be time for him to wake up from this dream.

The scam from Gerardas Norkus on the site paid-to-read-email.com can get easily identified. He declares in the FAQ that the minimum payout is $15. You'll get for each email you'll read between $0.01 and $0.05. The scam gets found in that what he calls "garanteed paid emails (GPE)". That are only 100, which have in sum a value of $1. Together with the $3 sign-up bonus and the paid emails you'll reach only a maximum value of $4, which is far under the minimum payout of $15. You can increase your GPE factor by completing some surveys or offers. The problem is only that there are no offers on the site and the survey links are leading to scam, phishing, virus and malware sites. As it is a requirement in his offer to complete such surveys is he in front of law liable for the content of the sites including the scam, phishing, viruses and malware! This responsibility cannot get excluded by writing some statements on a website because it is a part of his business.

Here are the FAQ of the page paid-to-read-email.com. If you read them with an open mind then you'll get it that you get guaranteed NOT PAID

What is Paid To Read Email®?
Paid To Read Email® is an online rewards community where you can earn money for reading emails, taking surveys, completing offers, referring friends and more! You can also choose to earn points that are redeemable for gift cards, guaranteed™ paid emails (GPE) and more.

Here gets already the first part of the scam found. You have to buy the "guaranteed paid emails" with your work. With other words you are paying with your workforce the scam.

 

How does Paid To Read Email® pay me to read email?
Paid To Read Email® will pay you $0.01 - $0.05 for every paid email that you confirm. Simply follow the instructions in the paid email you receive, and your account will be credited! Note that you won't be credited for reading paid emails if your guaranteed™ paid emails (GPE) are expired.

In this case the scammer Gerardas Norkus likes to burden his duties to the consumer. The problem is only that this is against the consumer protection law of the European Union. As soon as the the customer of his site - it does not make any difference if the offer is free of charge or not - does a job, in this case reading of an email as offered, the customer has to get paid.

 

How and when will I be paid?
Member commissions shall be paid by PayPal. Payments are processed within three (3) business days upon request, however your first time payment is processed on a net-15 basis. This means that your first payment will be processed 15 days from the end of the month in which you requested payment. This waiting period is necessary in order to prevent online fraud. Member commissions must exceed $15 in order to receive payment. Commissions earned during any month less than $15 will be carried over into the following month.

In the above statement the stupid scammer Gerardas Norkus does not know that he has to pay by law in any case as soon as the consumer has seen the counter. A printout of the page where the amount is written is enough evidence for the law court.

You are able to calculate how long it will take until you get a payout by the fact, that I have gotten exactly 0 (zero) paid emails within 24 hours after signing up for the service. The scammer hopes that the people will take the trap with his malware sites if they are not able to earn something.

 

Why was I not credited for reading paid emails?
You won't get credited for confirming paid emails if your guaranteed™ paid emails (GPE) are expired. You can see your current GPE amount when you login to your account and go to Earnings page. You can increase your GPE by taking surveys and offers, or by earning points and redeeming them for GPE.

Note that the higher paid email rate you have selected in your profile the faster your GPE will expire.

Like it is written before already, the customer has to get paid as it offered. The idea that the scammer can let the customer working free of charge confirms the scam!

 

Why was I not credited for surveys and offers that I completed?
There are several possible reasons for not getting credited in your account. Note that Paid To Read Email® does not credit member accounts for completing surveys and offers. This process is handled by the advertiser companies who hosts and maintains all of the surveys and offers. The company who credits the surveys and offers has the final say in whether or not you are credited, and reserves the right to refuse a member credit for a survey or offer for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, lack of appropriate information, improper sign-up, improper browser settings, and/or a history of manual credits. If you do not see the credit in your account, that means that Paid To Read Email® did not receive credit either, and we therefore cannot pay you.

Even here is the scammer Gerardas Norkus wrong. As the surveys from other companies are a part of his offer is he liable for the payment of his customers. It does not matter if he gets some money for the work of his customers for another company or not. He is even liable for the promises of the other sites! 

Scamadviser reports about the site paid-to-read-email.com:

Technical contact email address is a free one
Administrative contact email address is a free one
This website is associated with a risk site
This website setup involves countries known to be high risk
This website is likely to be operating from a high risk country

This site has a high risk country associated with it. This may be as you expect but care should be taken if purchasing an item from a site that you didn't expect to be associated with the countries listed above. Certain countries are listed as being high risk because of the high percentage of online fraud or tendency to send fake/replica items.

Free email addresses have been used in the setup of this website. This is not necesarily worrying, depending on the site. For online shops, this can be a sign that the site has some risk

 

In the following list you'll see for which sites the scammer Gerardas Norkus makes lead generation. Each of the survey sites from his member section generates an Adguard and a security warning from 360 Total Security. As the Adguard warning come first on my computer and to keep the list short I have copied here only the Adguard warnings: 

Adguard has blocked access to this page

Adguard has found that this page may be a forgery or imitation of another website, designed to trick users into sharing personal or financial information. Entering any personal information on this page may result in identity theft or other abuse.

I'll recommend everybody to use some protection like Adguard and a good virus scanner like 360 Total Security for visiting a website the first time. It shows you not only the danger of site it protects your computer against malicious software.

How Gerardas Norkus is scamming you if you are signing up can get shown on a complaint at RippOffReport about his domain cash4offers.com:

Cash4offers - Gerardas Norkus this guy is ripping people off and must be stopped ripoff Lithuania Internet

this guy is ripping people off and must be stopped. after i signed up and completed offers using my credit card i had over 50 dollars in my account (which you need before you can request a check to be sent to you). now i cant logg on my account is blocked. after l search this guy he has his fingers in alot of scams. fake cds how-to-get rich scams. im taking this action further! also more paid survey sites, which im guessing all these sites belong to him after i searched them and found his name behind most of them.

U.S.A.

That the above complaint is not a revenge from an unhappy user gets shown on the report and rating of cash4offers.com from the U.S. Better Business Bureau. This report shows too that it does not help against the authorities to hide the domain ownership behind some privacy services.

Scammer: 0daybux.com - Matteo Melandri - contradicts himself

by Rudolf Faix 27. October 2015 07:11

Alexa global ranking of 0daybux.comThe scammer Matteo Melandri invests a lot into the Clixsense program to show some traffic to his scammer site 0daybux.com. It seems that he believes that members of paid to click programs are so stupid and believe into his unbelievable promotions.

The only purpose of paid to click sites is only to get traffic for showing at the Alexa global ranking and similar sites that the site gets visited and is not a big secret in the world wide web. The result of such a paid to click program gets shown on the screen shot at the right site. To see the full details simple visit the Alexa site.

The offer is for free members:

Earn 0.10€ per click
Earn 0.05€ per referral's click
Instant payout
0€ to cashout
Many advertisement
And much more...

For paid members is it even more unbelievable:

Earn 0.25€ per click
Earn 0.20€ per referral's click
Instant payout
0€ to cashout
Many advertisement
And much more...

Normally is a payout for visting sites between US$ 0.001 and US$ 0.01. Not one advertising company will pay at least € 0.45 per visitor (earnings for paid members € 0.25 + € 0.20 for the upline). That is a dream of the paid to click providers, but it will never come true. If you take a look inside the program of Clixsense or Trafficmonsoon then you see that there is not one real company advertising their products. They are promoting themselves and each others with the paid clicks.

Anyway, the contradiction from the scammer 0daybux.com - Matteo Melandri gets already found at the homepage of 0daybux.com. It seems that the words "0€ to cashout" are the reality from the offer if we take a look at the homepage and the FAQ's.

At www.0daybux.com/pages/clickads is written that you don't get paid as a free member if you are not upgrading your membership:

How I get instant cash?
For cashout the earnings please upgrade your account. Ascertain that your earnings € are more than the upgrade price. For example if you earned 20€ you can upgrade your account to Ultimate membership so you're sure that you can receive the money for upgrade instantly after the purchase.

With other words is the promotion "0€ to cashout" for free members true. They are getting exactly € 0.00 for clicking on the advertisements. The only problem is that the paid members have the same description in the offer. So they are getting nothing too. For what should someone upgrade in this case? Only for supporting a scammer? As you don't get something for it makes a free membership or a paid membership not any sense,

We'll find some more contradictions at the FAQ page http://www.0daybux.com/pages/contact - link removed as it already returns error 404 - not found Jan. 18, 2017):

What is the minimum payout?
Zero. Payout is instantly and you can request it when you want.

Click at least 50 advertisement (for free members)
Become a upgraded member or add funds

Here already we see that free members don't get paid and the promotion is nothing else than a bad joke. As we see in the next point of the facts is there no way that free members are getting paid. So free members have only the possibility to work for nothing. That is nothing else than a big deception. Probably the scammer is hoping that someone still pays for him for the fraud!

Why my payout request is refused?
If you receive this error: "Based on your membership and investment(s), the payout maximum for your account is €0.00." is because you don't have upgraded membership or added funds. Please upgrade your account or add funds for request the first cashout.

In the sentence above is already the payout maximum declared as € 0.00! As the site is hosted in the Netherlands and registered in Italy and both countries are members of the European Union is the site already breaking the consumer protection law of the European Union because the free membership is already a misleading offer.

With other words the "free members" have no minimum payout but a maximum payout of ZERO Euro.

The next point in the FAQ's shows the plain scam. You have to buy your work. Even this point is against the European consumer protection law because you have to pay first for getting your earnings:

Can I upgrade my account or add funds with Account Balance?
Is not possible upgrade your account or add funds with Account balance for now. You can use PayPal, EgoPay, OKPay and Bitcoin.

Sure, in a scam you cannot upgrade your membership with the funds of your account. In this case the scammer would not get some money!

One point of the European Data protection law is that the consumer has the right to get his data deleted as soon as he requests it. It does not make any difference if the consumer is a free or a paid member of a service. The provider of the service has to delete the data and to confirm the deletion of the data on the request of the consumer.

Can I delete my account?
Only upgraded members can delete their account. Upgrade your account and contact the support if you want to delete it.

My opinion about the site 0daybux.com is that Matteo Melandri likes to build up a legal scamming site. The problem is only that this is not possible without breaking the consumer protection law.

Suspicious Sites

Ponzi scheme: NeoBUX - in the most countries illegal

by Rudolf Faix 19. August 2015 08:21

As you get only a higher payment for viewing advertisements and not any real physical value at NeoBUX is it nothing else than a Ponzi scheme. Free members are getting only for their viewed advertisements $0.001 and $0.0005 for their referrals views (I did not see any higher paid advertisements during my short membership period). If you upgrade to a gold membership and rent referrals you only lose money. The price for a golden membership is $90/year (http://www.neobux.com/forum/?/9/135713/price-of-Gold-membership/)

If you take a search at Google, you'll find a lot of people which lost their money after upgrading to the Gold membership. For example in the comments of http://onlinemarketingwithvince.com/will-neobux-scam-you-honest-review-and-opinion/. As NeoBUX is registered in Portugal and Portugal is a member of the European Union is such a Ponzi scheme and misleading promotion there illegal. I suggest to all, which lost money with NeoBUX to file a class action against NeoBUX.

Don't forget not one company is able to pay more than they are earning. For this are all systems where you have to pay for your work nothing else than SCAM. In the case of NeoBUX is the scam found in the Gold Membership and in the rented referrals! If they would not earn more with the Gold Membership and the rented referrals they would not offer it!

The scam pay out table from NeoBUX:

Fraud & Scam

BitGold confirms that they are offering services which they are not able to fulfill

by Rudolf Faix 1. August 2015 06:52

gold barsBitGold support is confirming in their email that not one of their team is speaking German, but on their own site they are offering a German speaking support and they have a website in German too. Already this is a misleading promotion. How will they answer such a call? I think it will not take a long time if they are getting fined from the competition bureau of the European Union for their misleading marketing practice.

Lets start from the beginning. I have sent them a request for canceling my membership:

Hello

Please delete my account. The German translation is not understandable - it
is nothing than plain shit what is written there. Changing to English
resulted in the for me not understandable language Svenska. As your
business seems to be in reality from Eastern Europe or India, which is
hosting their services at the Amazon cloud and even have no own servers and
security systems is your company not trustful. Not one bank in Europe is
using a public hosting provider for their own services.

Additional I signed up by a misleading promotion, which did not get
fulfilled!

best regards
Rudolf Faix

Instead of disabling my account immeditely I got the following response:

We regret to hear of your intentions to cancel your account. We can certainly fulfill your request, but before we do so, can you please answer the following three questions:

1. Did you find BitGold’s TOS policy to be fair and equitable?

2. What are your views on BitGold’s gold prices?

3. Why are you closing your BitGold Act.?

We hope you reconsider using the platform in the future.

My answer has been a link to my previous article about BitGold:

Hi Ben

There are a lot of reasons why I cancel my account directly after signing
up. You can find a few of them at:
http://affiliates.wwpa.com/post/2015/07/24/BitGold-Inc-very-suspicious-will-they-burst-like-a-bubble.aspx

That has been only the first impression. What will I find all if I'm
starting making a real background check?

best regards
Rudolf

In their following answer we see that they know about the problems of the translation from their own site. The question is only why they not solve this problems? They are only writing that they are working on it - until now they even did not change something and it takes only a few hours to fix the translation. Do they not have enough money? It is their own reputation which gets destroyed if they let the content online. We find the same money saving action in their referral program confirmed in their email:

Hi Rudolf,

We are sorry to hear you had a bad experience. I’d like to address some of the concerns you brought up in your article to provide better clarification. Firstly, we are very sorry about the translation issue. We are based in Toronto, Canada, and no one on our team speaks German. I will be completely honest – we had contracted the translation out to a translation company in Europe and have since heard (especially for the German version of the site) that a lot of it does not make sense. We are currently in the process of having this corrected and apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused.

Our Golden Heart referral program and affiliate program are not lotteries, as your article suggested. The amounts are different in each region based on the usage we are seeing from each country, so that is why we advise users that their reward may vary. We cannot control how users advertise the program on social media, but the affiliates Facebook page (“BitGold Affiliate Program”) and your personal Golden Heart referral page are the best sources on information about each promotion.

If we can provide more information for you, we would be happy to do so. If you would still like to delete your account, we can also do that for you.

Kind regards,

Melanie

The above email shows that BitGold even does not understand their self-induced problems. It shows that they are working according to the motto: "We're saving - cost what it may". My answer to this email has been accordingly:

How you can say that your referral program is not a lottery?
In my case is it already a lottery at which place I'm at the moment or which address I use for signing up. I have a company in New York, Vienna/Austria and in Manila/Philippines. Depending on which place I'm or signing up I get a different handling.
 
I even cannot promote your system because of your different promises. My market is the German and English speaking part of the world. I'm not able to offer something from your company without getting called to be scammer or liar from one or more parts of the world.
Do you see now the problem?
 
As your company is not able to understand international marketing you are proving that you even not understand something from your own business. Who shall trust you in this case if you fail already during your marketing process?
 
Sorry, but my own reputation is more important than your first steps in learning how an international marketing is working.
 
Don't forget if you are reaching the wrong people like me and there are a lot of them available at the world, than a handful of these people can be your ruin. In such a case the best promotion will not help you.
 
That you cannot control how people are advertising your system in the social media is true, but it has been your decision to let people advertise your service and you have to accept the result. It is your reputation which is going down together with the advertisers reputation. With other words is it for you not an excuse because you have started it and this without thinking about the consequences. Even this shows that you have no experienced people in your company. Maybe all of your staff is coming directly from the school or you are saving money by hiring under graduated ones.
 
As you have confirmed that not one at your company is speaking German, how do you handle callers at your support hotline if I'm calling the German support with the number +49-69-204575283, which is only an extension?

Summary: As I have decribed at the article "BitGold Inc. - very suspicious - will they burst like a bubble?" confirms the email from BitGold that everything at their systems is quick, cheap and dirty. The same methods we find in their support as they are offering something which they are not able to fulfill. Not one of their systems, which is visible from outsiders, is working on a serious way. What are you expecting in this case how they are handling your money? Maybe if you are customer from them you'll get an email once which tells you that during a programming mistake all your funds got lost, but BitGold is not guilty. Guilty is the external programming company.

My opinion is that a company, which is offering payment and investment services needs to make in each case a very serious impression otherwise they will not survive. Some people are so modest - they even don't accept reason.

It looks for me that they are struggeling with money because they are even not fixing their small problems. How long will it take in such a case that they would use customer funds for solving their problems? We have in German language a proverb which is translated into Enlish: "Opportunity makes the thief."
