A Trading Planet Opinion

A Trading Planet Opinion

From various complaints online it seems that Trading Planet Ltd and other companies may be back in business (under new names).

Also found this very interesting 4 page thread which has investigated these companies and the links between them in some depth.
http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r24610419-Credit-Card-Fraud-Unauthorized-Charge-for-39.71-from-the-UK

On page 4 is a post from 6th January 2011 which says:
“Even though the scam started in July 2010, it is still going strong with a flurry of recent fraudulent charges. Same routine, same shell site, same bank runaround yet it goes on.

Here’s just one discussion with recent complaints:

http://whocallsme.com/Phone-Number.aspx/8883890108/5

I filed a complaint at the fbi.gov site, I know others did too, yet nothing has happened. I wrote John Leyden with the Register about how prevalent this is and hope he chimes in since it involves organized crime using UK addresses.”

The recent complaints refer to unauthorised charges from Lafincs Consett (County Durham) – so it seems the County Durham UK Ltd companies are up and running again under new names? eg:
Catchy Cash Ltd. 85 Durham Road Blackhill Consett County Durham DH8 8RR Companies House Registration Number: 7006949

What is the Cost of Utah Scammers?

Criminal Cost?

Poison Apples

Poison Apples

A week may be a long time in politics, but it takes several years for anti-crime agencies to crack down on scammers…  This is my observation on all the various scams perpetrated on folk by such smiling scum as Pacific WebWorks and Jesse Willms.

Salt Lake Tribune (SLT)

The fine publication, SLT, always seems ahead of the game with it’s prompt and accurate reporting of the shenanigans in it’s home state of Utah, USA.  Today they’ve headlined a news release of a joint law enforcement agency called the “Utah Securities Fraud Task Force” (USFTF) where they estimate that Utahs alone have lost $1.4bn to the criminals.  This is $1,400,000,000 written out full.  See the full story here:

Utahns have lost $1.4 billion in suspected frauds – By Tom Harvey: The Salt Lake Tribune

Internet - Good Or Bad?According to the USFTF, 370 scammers have been operating in the state of Utah and have scammed 4,400 folks. Some of them are investment fraud etc, some small time amounts of 1-200 dollars.  But it all adds up to an average of $328k per fraud, which seems a bit high.

Worldwide?

Too Much CreditBut what is the cost worldwide?

From articles and comment within these very pages I’ve seen hundreds of people scammed by the Utah cut-purse merchants.

Tie these to the hundreds or even thousands of complaints about the scammers on consumer portals like Complaints Board, Google itself, Yahoo and the small army of websites specialising in on-line scams, and we see an absolutely huge mountain of personal debt, all paid to keep the thieving scammers in their lazy lifestyle choice.

So if the USFTF estimates $1.4bn, any guesses on the worldwide hit?

It must be of drug smuggling proportions… mustn’t it?

This is why the Task Force is composed of:

  • the FBI,
  • the Securities and Exchange Commission,
  • Internal Revenue Service,
  • Criminal Investigation,
  • the U.S. Postal Inspection Service,
  • the Utah Department of Commerce,
  • Utah Division of Securities,
  • the Utah County Attorney’s Office,
  • the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Utah
  • the Utah Attorney General’s Office.

Only the army is missing.

Google Treasure Chest – Phone and Address List

Pre-script

Comments are now closed on this posting as Google Treasure Chest is dead.
However, the problem has not gone away – the menace continues.

For further information, all chat on this and subsequent scams is now here:
Google Revolution, Different Name, Same Scam!
and here:
More on Google Profits and Pacific Webworks/


Introduction

Notice how I call this a scam. This has being going on since 2007 . It’s only this year has some sort of order been applied to some websites. But now, because of the initial actions, there’s a veritable zoo of copycat websites that have sprung up, still using the original secretive methods and styles. To say that Google Treasure Chest is now behaving properly is missing the point. It’s activities like this that have spawned this chimera of shifting targets and thus, it’s still the original system designer’s fault and they should be penalised accordingly.

This list is derived from the posts and comments that have cascaded from an original posting of mine, Google Treasure Chest – it’s a scam and a half!

I’m calling this list a “Google Treasure Chest” list purely because that’s where I started. As time has progressed there’s been so much blurring of the edges that it can probably be applied to anything that’s appeared in these related postings and all the other websites that have picked up on this scam.

The information is arranged chronologically is it was received at this website and shows the wide variety of contacts that people have had to endure – notice how some phone numbers have been quoted at different addresses! This demonstrates either complete incompetence or laissez-faire by the various ‘web-masters or a series of deliberate attempts to obfuscate and mislead. Either way, the effect is the same.

See this video howto about get use your credit card company to beat the scammers.

Governmental and Other Consumer Help Contacts

This is a short list of consumer help and official governmental scam reporting organistions.

How To Use This Table Below

  • Sites called GTC refer to Google Treasure Chest. The rest you’ll have to guess at or look at the original comment on this website where all this info has been posted originally. I haven’t gone to other websites to get extra stuff – life’s too short.
  • Saying this, the GTC phone numbers at the bottom tend to work according to people that have left a message or comment. So if you need to cancel your ‘golden opportunity for wealth’, then try these.
  • I’ll try and keep this list updated with new numbers as I come across them. They aren’t guaranteed to work – but it’s a starting point…

Current Best Practice (to get out of this scam) – 4 June 2009 (SP)

  • Cancel your credit card / get your credit card company to do a charge back (See this video howto)
  • Phone 866 957 0020

In both cases, the people who’ve got their money back have been persistent and straight to the point.  Don’t hang up until they cough up!

I Know Where the Next 911 Will Be!

– well not exactly – yet!  But I’ll let you know soon.

Today’s news that Key finance firms will be ‘probed by FBI’ should be a bit of a pointer.

If you take the opinion, as I do, that the difference between swindling and incompetence with regard to the actions of professional people within their own profession – is zero, then the Enron Corporation’s actions and the actions of the big financial institutions behind the present financial collapse, can be seen as the same.

In Enron’s case, much of the investigative documentation was lost in the collapse of Tower 7 on 9 September, 2001.  This is why so few individuals have made it to court.

So wherever the FBI decide to keep their papers when they’ve trawled through the heavily obfuscated accounts of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Lehmans etc etc zzzzzz

– well that’s where the next big “terrorist” event will occur.  And I can predict only six people will ever get locked up.  If that.
