Dodgy Robert Allen on Facebook

Who Is Robert Allen?

For an answer to this, see these posts and follow up comments:

These posts are all related either by Robert Allen and/or the email and websites that advertise products like his and others.  To me, they are all scum, although they may not be actually related.

Facebook Advert

FacebookAdforRobertAllen

Facebook Ad for Robert Allen

Today I got a depressingly familiar advert on my Facebook homepage.  This is it here on the left.

echo-news.co.uk version

On checking with TinEye, I found at least one other example of the image at http://www.echo-news.co.uk/resources/images/656796/ which is the one on the right.

Call me mad, but isn’t there something wrong about the three components of the image – the house, car and bloke – they just don’t look right!

I now followed through on the link to see what my 2011 Deam Lifestyle would be like…..

Fake News Site at wbcnewsonline.com

Is Working Online At Home The Next Gold Rush

This news site is called “News11 Today” and is notable for the complete absence of the French newsreader Melissa Therieau!  This is the full screen grab on the right.

It has the tagline:

“Is Working Online At Home The Next Gold Rush”

Unfortunately, the image and caption at the top right of the fake news site have this extract, which I’ve shown on the here below:

News11 blatant Google Lie

News11 blatant Google Lie

News11 blatant Google Lie

And it is a blatant lie!

To para-quote;

“Google have NOT opened their doors and are NOT allowing the public to post links from the comfort of their homes on THEIR website.”

In fact Google have always had a pretty open door policy and allow anyone to post adverts for search or display adverts on their own website for fees.  They have always done it!!!

It’s what they do.

Google is an advert sponsored search engine!!!

It’s how they make their money!

Advert Link – the real monkey.

The whole point of the fake news site “News11 Today” is the promotion of a single advert which they claim is for:

Automated Home Profits.

The Automated Home Profits link actually goes to

wbcnewsonline.com

http://wbcnewsonline.com/business/uk-breaking-news002.php?c1=gb&c2=m&c3=24any&c4=1

Regular readers of these pages will not be surprised to learn that this “business” hides their identity (see my opinion on hidden identity here) – see WHOIS link

And knowledgable and wise internet folk will also not be surprised that the link takes you to a typically gaudy Get-Rich-Quick website, prototing the dubious merits of Robert Allen.  This time it is called… wait for it (drumroll)…

Home Wealth Package

Home Wealth Package - 1st page

Home Wealth Package - 1st page

The actual URL (after a redirect from http://wbcnewsonline.com/business/read-more.php) is http://apply.robertallenswealthpackage.com/?hop=rgamedia&c1=467659339&c2=400444 and it looks like the screenshot on the left.

Amazingly, there are only 5 places remaining!  (This dubious sales tactic is everywhere on the web as well as normal retail – this post I wrote over two days and in the morning there were still 5 places remaining, gosh.)

Now obviously, this is a pile of poo.  But when you try to leave you get:

“The begging prompt” – see here:

Please Don't Go!

You will notice that the cakground has changed….?  This is because the page has redirected to another one already!  It’s:

http://apply.robertallenswealthpackage.com/qualified/

Home Wealth Package - qualified!

Home Wealth Package - qualified!

..which means that trying to close the crap, qualifies me for an e-e-e-even more special offer that allows me to earn up to £379 per day (actually, I won’t get out of bed for less than £380 a day, so they’ve failed on that one).   This is the full page on the left.

An analysis of the page shows the same “loadsa money” girl from the Google Treasure Chest templates and I even spotted one iStockPhoto in the guise of the couple called “Jane & Jeremy C – Liverpool, UK”.

But check the bottom of the page – they carefully state in the smallest font known to mankind that,

Photos used are Not of actual customers.

Well that’s alright then.

Another thing that is obviously alright as it obviously does not seek to decieve is the disclaimer in tiny font at the bottom that states,

Home Wealth Package is not associated with CNN, People and TIME

…despite the prominently displayed logos at the top of the page.  This behaviour also occurred on the first landing page.  See two screenshots below.

This is a common pattern of behaviour for these scam get-rich-quick websites – they almost always have huge random logos of reputable internet businesses which are then diclaimered away in tiny printy at the botoom of the page.

Sign Up & Start Earning!  Rush My Order!

Handily there’s still five “positions” remaining….  Better get one fast, eh?  Clicking the nice large buttons takes me to this screen, where the logo disclaimer is now noticable by its absence!

Home Wealth Package - signup start

Home Wealth Package - signup start

Please note the text at the bottom which states “We respect your privacy and will not rent or share your information with anyone.”   – –  This is NOT what happened when I did this previously (see links at beginning of this post).  At that time my email address was mercilessly spread around like confetti!

Get Started Now!

Click Bank Payment Form

Click Bank Payment Form

Clicking that button takes me to the Click Bank form where I would normally pay my £19.97.

At this point I left but consider what Robert Allen and his marketteers now have, even though I haven’t bought anything…?

  • They have my name.
  • They have my phone number.
  • They have my email address.

Fortunately, I gave my name as Mystic Meg, my phone number is that of Scotland Yard and my email address is my spam harvester.

But for anyone else suckered into this tissue of lies, they’d now be open to even more spam as an absolute minimum.

Co-incidence?

Co-incidentally with my observance of the Facebook advert, I got some email spam this morning onto a little-used email address that wanted to sell me email spam lists by profession! It looks like the start of a new campaign.

This is it with my email xxxx-ed out:

MyBookface, Google, Utah and Nevis Scamboys United

Introduction

I knew there was something really, really dodgy about that MyBookFace.net crap highlighted in this post the other day. Not only are they connected to some serious malware (as detailed in the posting), but they’ve an interesting line in popups!!!

Google Treasure Chest Rises Yet Again!

Here’s what to do…

Blogs » MyBookFace (Powered by phpFoX)

Blogs » MyBookFace

  1. Go to http://mybookface.net making sure that you’ve emptied your browser cache and removed cookies (you will find that the popup only appears once, if you close it down. So if you need to see it again, clear your cache & cookies)
  2. Now click on the “Blogs” link which is
    • You’ll now be presented with a popup window for San Francisco DAILY NEWS. This is located at http://www.net-news-daily.com and is yet another pseudo-news website that appears to be full of interesting links!
  3. Link Information for: www.net-news-daily.com

    Link Information for: www.net-news-daily.com

    Actually, all of the links go to only a couple of destinations….. If you use the “Web Developer” plugin for Firefox, you can quickly see all the links in a web document – and in this case, there aren’t many!

    • You’ll also see that the T&C type links at the page bottom don’t work!! (these are the javascript void links)
  4. Let’s follow the link… Where do you think it ends up?

Google Fortune – GoogleWorksToday.com

Unbelievable, isn’t it?..!!

Google Fortune - Earn Money Using Google!

Google Fortune - Earn Money Using Google!

As seen and trusted on ABC, CNBC, CNN it says!! – well that’s one way of putting it!

In essence, it’s the same old trip we’ve had from Google Treasure Chest, Google Revolution, Google Money Tree. So from now on, anything like this is lumped into one ‘thing’ called Google Bollox.

The page is actually quite inviting and not quite as gaudy as before. Apparently, you can earn up to $907 per day (damn – I was hoping for $935 again.)

The same poor logic and content checking is going on though – at the bottom they helpfully inform the reader that their product isn’t endorsed by Fox News even though this is the first actual mention of Murdoch’s child.

Also at the bottom, there’s another new company (for me) called FunWebProfits View Marketing, Inc., 642 Main Street, Nevis. Nevis is that island in the Caribbean again!

Who Are They?

This seems a relatively recent addition. A Google search on the full name and address produces nothing. However, separating the name and address into two different searches produces the now-usual crop of complaints and allegations of fraud and theft that we’ve become accustomed to.

Try FunWebProfits View Marketing, Inc., 642 Main Street, Nevis.

The Nevis address has been in these pages several times. See:

Using this earlier research, and the website: http://www.sknvibes.com/Business/Trust.cfm?Vz=1, we can say that the Nevis company is:

Nevis International Trust Co. Ltd.
Mr. Eugene Herbert
P.O. Box 642
Hamilton Development
Nevis
Tel: 1 (869) 469-5132
Fax: 1 (869) 469-5898
E-mail: [email protected]
Website: http://www.inttrust.com

The header at the top of the inttrust about page says it all. It’s a dinky little island so has to make money somehow…

Nevis is an excellent jurisdiction in which to open a Limited Liability Company (LLC). The Nevis Limited Liability Company Ordinance was passed in 1995 and has become very popular.

It offers a full range of financial services and products including asset management and protection, company formation and administration, insurance, foundations, mutual funds administration, offshore banking, investment management, and trust services.

Nevis offshore companies are free from taxation and are protected in privacy by the 1985 Confidential Relationship Act.

The blurb on their website offers strict confidentiality along with business expertise from the United States and Britain!

Another interesting bit is that the copyright for this crap is claimed by a company called “View Marketing”. This makes a Google Search on them very hard, presumably by design! The inconsistent punctuation is designed to mislead, is it not? I take it they’re nothing to do with the Scottish Tourism company of the same name… etc etc etc.

Time to Sign Up! I’m In!

Google Fortune - Earn Money Using Google: Credit Card Entry Page

Google Fortune - Earn Money Using Google: Credit Card Entry Page

Because the GoogleWorksToday.com page is a “Limited Time Offer”, I thought I’d better leap in now before it’s too late…

I used my standard spam magnet email address but with a name of “Donna Kebab”(I’ll be waiting for some spam on this name, natch). I used the postcode of Scotland Yard in London and their general enquiries telephone number…. Mysteriously, I notice that they have a “mark of the devil” contact number of 877-402-2666….. Hmmm. Let’s check that out using Google, seeing as how I’m starting a new career with it today!!

Oh Dear! Best not.

This phone number already appears to have ‘prior’, as the boys in blue would say… Apart from the few scam sites like realjobsfast.com say, all the hits are complaints! Like:

Needless to say, like your typical “News of the World” reporter, I’ve made an excuse and left! However, this was not before noticing that the credit card page of GoogleWorksToday.com at

..has a WHOIS of:

Registrant: View Marketing
2862 Gulf to Bay Blvd
Building A
Clearwater, Florida 33759
United States

Domain Name: GOOGLEWORKSTODAY.COM
Created on: 22-Jul-09
Expires on: 22-Jul-10
Last Updated on: 22-Jul-09
Administrative Contact:
Marketing, View
2862 Gulf to Bay Blvd
Building A
Clearwater, Florida 33759
United States
+1.8774022666

This Florida place is in these little shack businesses, very nice.

However, spin round 180 degrees and we can find one possible source for the ‘company’ name… The large building is called “View Gardens”, ha ha!

Paths Running Deep and Murky

One of the scam site results in the Google search for the 877-402-2666 number was another pseudo news site (these must be effective because of their prevalence):

New York Reporter News at http://web.archive.org/web/20090802103410/http://news9at6.com:80/index14.php?

Jobs - Employment - New York Local News: Scam site

Jobs - Employment - New York Local News: Scam site

This scam site even has very convincing YouTube news-type videos, all targeted at the work-at-home-mom thing. As before, apart from the inbound feeds that add authenticity, there are hardly any links.

Most links point to this sucker-inner website:

http://web.archive.org/web/20090809071637/http://news9at6.com:80/google14.php?arid=

which redirects to:

Google Fortune - Earn Money Using Google! This time at https://www.processcartcenter.com

Google Fortune - Earn Money Using Google! This time at https://www. processcart center.com

…that will have an aura of familiarity for readers of my Google Treasure Chest – it’s a scam and a half! posting from April (yes, it’s processcartcenter.com again) and also, it’s exactly the same Google Fortune page as before, but with a different address…..

Whois, Who Are They?

All is not lost. Check out the IP addresses in the WHOIS’s for processcartcenter.com and googleworkstoday.com which are:

  • 209.90.119.16
  • 209.90.119.11

These are obviously related. Now if you suspect that they live in Utah, I’m not betting any money with you. The WHOIS for both these IP addresses is:

Fibernet Corporation: 1155 S 800 E, Orem, Utah 84097

Talk about keeping it in the family!

The Tabernacle-like building houses 3 companies:

Of the three, Fiber.net (sic) has definitely been involved in spamming from 1997 through to at least 2007. Nethosting.com seems to be a standard webhosting entity with the usual good and bad references.

Ceristar seems a bit odd, to say the least! Their previously posted domain name ceristar.com is up for sale and since 2000 they have had a host of double stock swapping company mergers and takeovers. Their stock exchange reference (OTC BB: CTRI) now seems to point to a Chinese Organic Food business, which wholly at odds with previous references to the company setting up ISP-related connections to all and sundry in Utah.

Conclusion

Scam, scam and thrice scam.

The only thing missing from this ferago of twisted and hidden businesses is some references to County Durham, Gibraltar, Pasig City or Nicosia, Cyprus.

No doubt they’ll pop up soon (pun intended)

Naturally, DO NOT SIGN UP FOR ANY OF THESE “OPPORTUNITIES”!!!

eBay Success System – Blatant Lie

Introduction

Some time ago I did a little investigation into the spam & scam end of the Google Treasure Chest type schemes, all apparently sourced from Utah in the USA.  See Robert G Allen, Grants, and a Credit Card Slimeball

One benefit of the ensuing deluge of spam that I now receive is that it keeps me abreast of the latest scam methods!

Email Spam

Today I received one addressed to my spam-trap alter-ego, Murdon!  This is it:

  • From: eBay HR [[email protected]]
  • Title: Do you qualify for a paid position with eBay?

Hello Murdon,

To reduce support costs and become more ‘earth friendly’ eBay is shifting the majority of its sales and support teams from internal employees to work at home representatives.

Due to eBay’s new “Remote Employee Initiative” (REI) there are openings for approximately 245 positions.

Earn $6k+ per month + bonuses!

Great Benefits

Never before has a company of this size offered positions that allow the employee to telecommute 100% of the time. Register for your position now.

* Limited number of positions, please apply now if you are interested

Analysis

Truth be told, there’s not much analysis to be done – it’s a blatant lie, from top to bottom!

  1. Firstly, it implies several times that paid positions are available with the eBay company – they’re not.
  2. Secondly, it says that eBay has a new scheme called “Remote Employee Initiative” – click this Google search on the exact phrase – and none exists!
  3. The link isn’t anything like an eBay link…

It actually goes to this page:

http://www.eauctionsuccesssystem.com/index25march09.php?caCode=EBAYSYS5&p=0&caid=14900&cid1=0&cid2=2242&cid3=0&cid4=False&sid=&stID=67&new=1&misc3=6648  after copius redirections.

Now greatmoveonline.org seems to be gaffered here:

Name:Jared Pierce
12152 Gracie View Pl
Draper
UT 84020

Down this street, actually.

– whereas eauctionsuccesssystem.com wishes to remain anonymous behind the “Whois Privacy Protection Service, Inc.” – and we all know what that means, don’t we?

eauctionsuccesssystem.com

eBay Success System Kit header image

eBay Success System Kit header image

These actually proclaim that they’ve been seen on a host of major media companies at the top of their page.  Yeah right!  Switch off the odious actor avatar pretending to be someone called Michael Greene or else you’ll go insane.

In fact, don’t read any further at all without first checking the terms and conditions links at the bottom…

Because you’ll find out that it’s LANETE ENTERPRISES LTD WHOSE REGISTERED ADDRESS IS 3, BELL LANE, GIBRALTAR – again!

..and  “these Terms of Use will be in the courts in Nicosia, Cyprus

Conclusion

Of course, I’ve seen all this before.  What is important is that the spam email is full of several complete and blatant lies. It’s a fraudulent representation of the business of a perfectly legal business entity.  Impersonation, if you like.

There are No Safe Secrets

A Secret Shared:

– Is Not  a Secret

One Third of Second-Hand Hard Drives Contain Secrets

This is the astonishing findings from research conducted by three Universities, from Wales, the US & Australia (see here).

In an absolutely random sample of second-hand discs bought at computer fairs and places like eBay, 34% had secret, classified and/or personal data of the highest order, easily retrievable using standard tools e.g. Undelete!

@AmazonCurrently, virtually all data is  stored magnetically on discs (and tape).  These media are actually quite fragile…..

The new Solid State Discs (SSD) which will rapidly supersede them over the next few years, are infinitely more robust (see advantages).  It’s said that the only way to really get rid of data from an SSD, is to whack a nail right through the chip, drive backward and forwards over it several times with a road roller, and then cast it into the flames and melt it down, Terminator style.

Given that ALL government data storage uses exactly the same storage technology as Auntie Mavis’s PC, what chance is there that all our data will stay secure on the ID Card, Passport Control, Driving Licence, MI5, MI6, CID, Child Support, Social Services, Home Office, NHS Trusts, and all the other systems in future now that we know that one third of data is currently leaked using the current hard disc, tape and CD (optical) systems?

Can they be trusted with our data, in other words?

A FAT CHANCE is the phrase we are looking for!!!

Robert G Allen, Grants, and a Credit Card Slimeball

Introduction

This is a small investigation into mail lists and scammy companies.  Some companies are fine, but I always go by the adage to judge a man by the company he keeps.  This shows how lists spread far beyond their initial purpose when you sign up for something.  It also shows how the privacy policies of these marketting websites are just words wrapped in fluff.

Robert G Allen runs ‘courses’ and is highly public in his utterances.  His website is http://web.archive.org/web/20090106001934/http://robertallenmedia.com/

Robert G AllenHere you’ll find the chubby faced entrepreneur open and engaging, and in common with all such sites, remarkably thin in actual methods used despite the vast amount of time extolling their virtues.  They will always say it’s “to protect our secrets” etc.

Funnily enough, when EasyJet was started by Stelios Haji-Ioannou, I remember him going on national telly and saying “I’m starting a new airline – we are different because we are cheap and there are no frills” and it didn’t do him any harm.

Whatever.

The point is that having ‘signed’ up for three scammy looking enterprises, the flood of spam I initially received has now turned into a deluge.  I’m now definitely one of the

“business opportunity enthusiasts who have invested (…) to learn how to make money using Incentivized Freebie Websites”!!! – as I said here.

Spam

The fact that Bobbie Allen has a 365 day money-back guarantee and a nice Reno address is besides the point.  Myself, Allen, Grants scams, EBay Success schemes, Christian Debt Solutions and Cash For Gold (to name several, but not all);   we are all now intimately connected by email lists which are passed around with gay abandon as proven in the link above to Monica St John’s Project Payday.  A secret once out is no longer a secret, and it’s no good these sites in their ‘policies’ saying spam is forbidden by their affiliates, which they do, because they don’t care.  They’ve got the money;  and the sites, as shown by the connections below, breed like rabbits!  Several have only lasted a week, a week when they can scam a few folk and then bog off.

Links and Query Strings

The connections run very deep.  While Robert Allen is at robertallenmedia.com, it’s accessed by these links from 2 weeks of spam mail relating to various subjects I’ve listed.

Robert Allen doesn’t get linked to by accident, remember.  He is getting money from them and because of that point, he’s as much part of it as anyone.

You’ll see that there are various links back to similar sounding websites,  most of which pointed to grantsforcitizens.org  initially.  All email was sent to the same person ‘Murdon’, an alias I used only once.  Both websites use the annoying helpful popups as you try to close them down, (something that my webhost has started doing so they need telling off )!  The last three are when ‘Murdon’ passed into someone else’s control.   Epic Media Solutions was a common factor in these.  They are listed in the order received;

  • – Robert Allen! (Dabblers need not apply)
  • – Robert Allen! (Dabblers need not apply)

From the desk of Robert Miller1 President, GrantsForCitizens.org Massillon, Ohio

Robert Miller?

The similarities in this are obvious.  All these addresses (except the last three) redirect to either Robert Allen as shown or else the odious avatar of Robert Miller, terribly concerned about the current financial crisis.  He’s so concerned that he forgot to leave any real USA contacts in any of the T&C links even though it’s all about US grants!  He’s a busy man.  He has buried a statement from LANETE ENTERPRISES LTD WHOSE REGISTERED ADDRESS IS 3, BELL LANE, GIBRALTAR and helpfully makes a teeny comment that the business is subject to the laws of Nicosia in Cyprus!

Author’s Note: if you wish to be subject to the laws of Cyprus but make a claim against someone in Gibraltar regarding US Gov’t Grants – it’s up to you…

Continuing Links

Concurrent with the above, I also signed up to a scheme using the alias, ‘morton House’.  It’s a good idea to use slightly wrong case as it shows that automation has missed it and allows better traceability…  The signup time was about halfway down the above list.

This bunch start with eBay websites featuring an equally obnoxiously cheery avatar purporting to be Michael Green.  It the same financial tale of woe and optimism.  Robert Allen appears again!  It then morphs into Acai shite.

All the above used a new type of string (for me) in their spam.  Like so:

Sometimes this can be very large and references pictures etc

Both Murdon & morton House were sent mail from Citizen Grant Notification. This proves they are accessing the same email lists.  Ressourcehurtcentral.com sent a lot.  They always redirected to which is part of one of the most odious legitimate companies on the world.  Ressourcehurtcentral.com in a web browser calls itself InteractiveMediaSpaces.com and it’s a very soothing, professional-looking space…..  Helpfully, they provide the following comforting sentiment from their office in 73 Greentree Dr Suite #81, Dover, DE 19904

So yes, I actually do believe I received a Niagara of unsolicited mail from them.  When I subscribed I subscribed to different addresses altogether.  I shouldn’t have to unsubscribe!  I shouldn’t be there in the first place!  They can fuck right off with that one if they think I’m going to cut the headers from this pile of crap….

…calm down Reesy!  Check at the bottom of the page…

Oh Yes.  They have a blanket email removal service – right at the fucking bottom!

To globally unsubscribe from all of our lists, send an email to
[email protected]

Well that’s enough on them.  UPDATE:  I did as I was told.  This came back:

The following message to <[email protected]> was undeliverable.
The reason for the problem:
5.1.0 – Unknown address error 550-‘5.1.1 <[email protected]>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in relay recipient table’

You’ve got to laugh.

These fat fuckers deserve a paragraph or two here. Their two gaffers seem to be involved in the redistribution of wealth from poor people in financial difficulties up to nice middle America Sports College things, Republican Party donations – as well as increasing the physical bulk of the head banker.  See:

How Centennial Credit Card Terms & Conditions actually Redistribute Wealth Upwards!

….you understand that your initial credit limit will be at least $250.00 and the following fees will be billed to your first statement: Annual Fee of $48.00, Account Set-Up Fee of $29.00, Program Fee of $95.00, Monthly Servicing Fee of $7.00, and an Additional Card Fee of $20.00 per card (if applicable).

Well that’s what it says.  So you borrow $250 and are instantly charged $179!

…well not quite.  Many people on phoning FPB claim that the company says it’s never received stuff and thus charge the ‘customer’ another $29 for late payment.  Well that’s okay and fair.

…apart from the internet access fee and the late and overlimit fees?  Yes….

– Because you only have access to $71 from the $250 you think you have after the first month, you may easily go over $250.  Then you are billed $29.  So you re-arrange the credit limit to cover this for which you are charged $25.

This is exactly the trap people fall into.  To borrow $72 you have to pay back $304 which kind-of makes a mockery of the 9.9% APR!!!

It doesn’t stop there though.  If you are credit-worthy, your limit is automatically increased to say, $500.  But don’t forget the $25 credit limit change fee!!!  Ha Ha.

Conclusion

Needless to say, I’m putting the Centennial Credit Card into the ‘No’ pile along with everything else.  In fact, as a special consideration, First Premier Bank of Sioux Falls are going straight down the German Toilet.  I advise everyone to do the same who gets a spam from them like this.   This is my gift to FPB:

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

All future spam is going straight in the bin as time’s too short to analyse further.  Thank god for Mailwasher Pro!!  In fact, because FPB are so crap, my well-known bad taste has returned, just for them…
