Re: [Credit Card Fraud] fraud: www.prophotosland.com & www.phot

said by jswanson:

This is the same small charge $9.87 credit card fraud scheme posted on other threads although I have not yet seen these two sites specifically mentioned.
.......
Oh Excellent, thank you for Heads Up!!

And lets continue with Doctor Olds See Profile's digging. pcdebb See Profile is indeed correct, into the data base they go.

I can confirm positively that these are the next round of "Globus" fraud sites from Doctor Olds See Profile's thread: »pictureglobus.com, imaglobus.com, and templateglobus.com now

I need to see if anyone who is a slickdeals member can either IM or post to this thread: »forums.slickdeals.net/showthread···ngle.com

The poster "Minette" may have some valuable info I need. They got charged $9.87 by PROPHOTOSLAND.COM on 1/27 and subsequently got hit by according to them:

"a company called "Alkay Services LLC", this time on ANOTHER credit card I own, for the amount of $9.64. Same business (photo) according to my bank (Chase).

I need the phone number that may have been listed on the line item charge, or at least part of it. if it was not listed on the charge the card issuer should be able to give it to them. If anyone else has a "Alkay Services LLC" charge and has or can get the number. This group is also using the same deflecting tactic as the globus group, by telling victims someone registered on the site with their car. More than likely any victim who bought that lie and got a credit will have been hit with a second charge the next month. Any subsequent second hit names and full info is vital in following the trail.

The C&C website for the Globus was the bogus "Hermes Electro" hermeselectro.com: »hermeselectro.com pretending to be in Hong Kong:





The C&C for this picture, image, photo, fraud group is a bogus site "Hong-Kong Content Trade", hkc-trade.com: »hkc-trade.com/

A direct clone of the other one:





There are no records that indicate a business by those names exist at either of those addresses.

Need to add picturesjungle.com »www.picturesjungle.com/index.php···=contact to the list also.

I am off the belief that the names listed on the sites such as Eric Robertson, also of Globus fame, and Cristian Darie etc. are all fictitious. Having spent countless hours checking LLCs' and corp registrations in the state of Texas, including multiple county FBN lists, I do not believe they exist. At least until something substantial comes up to indicate otherwise.

You will notice from the added info to the sites listed above, that not only are the current crop using GoDaddy hosting, so were the Globus group.

I am not sure if it was posted, but one of the early victims of the Globus run, was told by GoDaddy that they would not shut them down without legal action. I will try and find a copy.

This group probably represents one of the most egregious lack of due care by a hosting company. Providing these criminals with a conduit, which enables them access to payment gateways allowing them to fraudulently process thousands of credit cards is unbelievable.

Lets just look at the worst case:

We have hosting provided to supposed e-commerce sites, where one can readily see from the robots.txt file, that no one could even find them. Plus their domain registration is cloaked, hidden. The only information published is a bogus name, and a cell phone contact number.

Now we are seeing supposed e-commerce sites registered to bogus locations in Hong Kong, and they are using contact phone numbers in various US states. The entire set up configuration reeks of fraud, a four year old could spot it, before the first charge ever hit.
