Back-up for recycling fraud

One might think that once there is no site, a domain name cannot be abused to defraud victims anymore. The fraudsters also believe there is no way someone can trace them and their online activities through a website that cannot be seen anymore. The case analyzed here shows otherwise.

Following complaints, the fraudsters close the sites they are controlling and bring them back online again after a while. In the meantime, the domain names are used only for the email address, or associated with free email addresses. For the period of time when the sites appear inactive and having no content, the contact with the victims is kept on phone, emails or chat facilities offered via fake profiles set up on social media. Thanks to self promotion done on free online portals, using the domain email address and the free email provider email address as well, the fraudsters can be sure they will be contacted by other victims. To make sure that happens, in most of the cases they are not always posting links to their fake sites in the free ads used to attract victims.

Let see how that works.
Help yourself by helping others - report your scammer here.
Google can be your best friend;use it if you have doubts about someone met online. If someone met online only asks for money, no matter what reason, it´s 100% scam.

The fake site was registered in January, while pretending to be Bliss Money Solutions. The site appears to be inactive currently.

The content of the site was stolen from a real UK company website.

Emails received from Bliss Money Solutions <info@blissmoneysolutions.com> offering unsolicited loans were reported as spam on 06 Feb 2018, while being sent from :

Originating IP: 197.210.24.218
Originating ISP: Mtn Nigeria Communication Limited
City: Lagos
Country of Origin: Nigeria

The fake site claimed to be Creative Hard Money LLC, stealing the name and the owner identity from a real US company active since 2013.

From the fake site:

Creative Hard Money LLC is a ARV Rehab Lending In New York City and Rental property loans In New York City money lender broker in California and Ohio.


The fake site was registered on September 2017 and appears to be inactive. For the fake site details: https://db.aa419.org/fakebanksview.php?key=131516.

A month after being registered, a victim posted online her experience with the "company":

It is with most disappointment that I write this. I just don't want anyone else to get con.
I started a process of a consolidation loan with a Mr. Harvey Hawkins from NJ. Then again, who knows who he truly is.
He posted a website http: // creativehardmoneyllc.com and when I called I was informed he has been impersonating them and has been reported to the FBI. Which I have as well done that.
I had to cancel the loan after been the victim of hurricane Irma. He was deceptive since the beginning and I didn't see it. When I ask for the refund he went missing.


The fake site was also reported for phishing in the same period of time.

The real owner of the business impersonated by the fraudsters reported the fake identity on a lenders forum where he was also active :

The other "Justyn Wielenta" on this site is a FRAUD. He has stolen my identity on facebook, this site and probably others. We've already alerted banking authorities where he is asking people to send him up-front 'processing' fees under false pretenses. I have a case going with the FBI on it. I am the only real Justyn Wielenta @ Creative Hard Money LLC. Please do not do business with the other Justyn Wielenta on here, he is fake.

The fake site claimed to be Simpson Financial Service. The domain name was registered in September 2017, and appears to be inactive. For the fake site details: https://db.aa419.org/fakebanksview.php?key=131517.

The first step for the fraudsters, after registering the domain name, was to set a Twitter profile:

A month after the domain name was registered, the fraudsters were already spamming their loan offers on free sites for job seekers:

The oldest mention on the fake Facebook profile:

On April 9, 2018, the fake profile was recycled for being used in romance scams:

If those pictures look familiar it's maybe because their were reported for being used in romance scams for long time: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=467.

Diamond Star loans provides installment loans as an alternative solution to payday loans. Like most payday loans, installment loans have a quick and easy application process that can be completed online and verified over the phone.

If you meet our eligibility criteria, you may be approved for an installment loan up to $200,000, which we can deposit into your checking account as soon as one business day!

The fake site claims to be InterContinental Credits. The content of the site is entirely stolen from the website of a reputable UK company having nothing to do with the fraud.
