Suspicious: Global Platinum Services - globalplatinumservices.com - Monte Jeremy

by Rudolf Faix 23. January 2017 04:13

Global Platinum Services (globalplatinumservices.com) hides their domain registration data behind a privacy protection service, but at the homepage gets shown one UK address and one US address. Such a behavior does not make any sense. It looks for everybody like they have something to hide and already that makes them very suspicious.

That is not the only alarm signal from a scam. Even their Facebook advertisement with the title "Travel Agent Wanted", shown on the right, shows more than one alarm signals for a plain and simple scam. There is written:

  • No travel Agent or Tourism experience Necessary
  • Full training - Sales, Marketing, Product ExclusiveMentorship Program
  • Low Start Up Costs
  • Personal website & Back office supplier
  • Access to DISCOUNTED Travel Deals

By reading the above points is it nothing else than an offer that you can use their training, web services and office service on your own risk and expenses. That is not an affiliate marketing offer, because you are taking all the work, commercial risks and expenses for the purpose than another one is able to earn. Anybody, who is interested, can open in such a case his own travel agency and trade with the offers from serious big tour operators.

The offer seems to be from a scammer based in India, who likes to hide his location. The reason for this assumption is the sign for the India Rupee (₹) in the for sale posting from Ms. Jade Burrell in the Facebook group to Business (Opportunity Dealer) - US. Jade Burrell does everything to invoke the impression that she is from the US. She is calling herself at her Facebook profile to be a CEO of Taker$ Ent., takersent.com, a domain registered to the provider Doodlebit LLC, 1712 Main St #254, Kansas City, MO 64108, US.

The domain globalplatinumservices.com, created on October 15, 2016, provides two addresses in the footer:

  • MB Holidays LTD 71-75 Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London WC@H 9JQ United Kingdom Registered in UK Number 09851263
    By taking a look at the UK Company register, we find the following entries for the number 09851263:
    • Company name: XStream MB Holidays Ltd
    • Address: 71-75 Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, United Kingdom, WC2H 9JQ.
      A search for the address in Google returns 18,023 companies at the same address. A complete list can get shown at Endole. As not one building can give enough place for 18,023 companies the address is from a post forwarding service and not a real office address.
    • Incorporation 2015-11-02
    • Statement of capital on 2015-11-02 GBP 1
    • Director: Monte Jeremy, Born: February 1974, Nationality: British, Country of residence: United States
    • Additional warning:

    Confirmation statement overdue

    First statement date 1 November 2016
    due by 15 November 2016

  • PC Platinum Travel, Inc. 7260 West Azure Drive Suite 141-568 Las Vegas, NV 89130
    Here are getting already some reviews found about this company:

The at the homepage provided "Florida registered seller of travel FLA ST36342" and "California registered seller of travel ID #CST 2076446-40" are the registration numbers from:

INTERNATIONAL VACATIONS INC
15400 KNOLL TRAIL DR STE 370, DALLAS, TX 75248-7079
Phone 214-239-2840
License Type License# Issued Expires Status
Seller of Travel ST36342 09/21/05   Exempt - ARC

Their understanding of a best price guarantee can get found at InternationalVacation.com Ripoff from TripAdvisor. At BehindMLM gets found an report with the title Phase 4 Global Review: A 4 matrix tall travel club too. In any case, International Vacations Inc. seems to be more interested in selling memberships to their pyramid system than travel packages. At the Internet are getting found around 600 sites offering memberships, but not one site is offering any travel package.

Global Platinum Services promotes their memberships with commissions up to 75% and on the other site a best price guarantee for their bookings. This contradicts each other, because the normal commission rates for travel agents are between 10% - 16% for package tours in this kind of industry. The average commission for airfare is only 1.36%. The travel industry is fighting over the price for their customers and for this reason all margins have been going down. An offer with with commissions of up to 75% is in this case not really serious. So the pyramid system has to get paid with membership fees and the real commission for the travel agent is in the best case less than 20%. Maybe you'll reach a commission of 75% if you are booking for someone a one night stay in a very cheap hotel and bill him a service fee. The average service fee is $38.

It even looks like that Global Platinum Services is only living from the membership fees. At other review sites are getting even cheaper membership fees mentioned than which are available than today. At the moment are only two offers as opportunity listed:

  1. Platinum Agent
    Setup Fee: $149.95
    Monthly Fee: $69.95 ($839.40/year)

  2. Platinum Plus Agent
    Setup Fee: $199.95
    Monthly Fee: $89.95 ($1,079.40/year)

This example shows, that it does not make any sense to use a privacy service for a domain, which should get used in business. It makes only the complete business suspicious. That someone needs to work and to pay for it, makes the system not more trustfully. Every pyramid system will break down as soon as not enough new victims entering the system can get found.

As it is useless to offer overpriced travel tour packages, because someone needs to pay the commissions for the affiliates and the tour operator likes to earn too, does it not make sense to promote any of this travel packages. For Global Platinum Services makes it more sense and it is more lucrative to sell memberships for their useless platform and use the travel industry for hiding their sham business.
