Bet WIth Us 365

betwithus365 , bwu365.com

Another reinvention of the old ‘forgotten betting account’ scam.

They ring you up to tell you that they have an old account of yours on the books….that used to be managed by a third party, who were located on the Gold Coast (of course).
They will then tell you that there is a substantial sum of money in there..in the tens of thousands of dollars…’What would you like to do with it?’

WIthdraw it of course!
Well they can do that but first there’s a small matter of paying back a credit that was used to start the account (apparently). $4,000 or so.

They are unable to simply take the fee out of your account and send the balance to you…for ‘legal’ reasons..

If you don’t want to pay they can close the account and take the earnings for themselves.
I don’t understand how they could manage to do that but they can’t take a fee out….for legal reasons

Is BetWithUs35 a scam?

Of course it is!

Just like many before: SportsAllBet, Sporstbet247, BetOTL, Brookshire Traders , Kensington Trade… to name just a few!

Their IP is in Russia like most of the others and they claim to be in San Jose, Costa Rica, just like most of the others..

They say they have been running for about 8 years yet their website is only registered from 2016.

Get this straight: if you send them the fee you will not see that money again, nor any of your ‘account balance’. Many have been taken by this scam.
Learn from them!

 

Exelon Group

Seems there is a new group operating that bears an uncanny resemblance to the Laybet Professionals scam ( which then became Charterhurst Agencies)

They sound like they’re peddling the same or very similar software, laying horses on Betfair to win ‘90% of the time’. Exelon Group are even at the same address as Laybet Professionals used to be, 128 Bundall Rd, Bundall , the notorious old Coast scammer hotspot.
Update: now they have an address in Varsity Lakes, but it is just a mailbox.

The two (alleged) principals of the Laybet Professionals and Charterhurst Agencies scams are now facing court,

The following comment appears on Aussie Criminals:

“Scam Alert | Aussie Criminals and Crooks

Thanks Mike,they ( Exelon Group) run me past a demo weeks back and the main trader attached my betfair account to his system that he uses over 2 days trading. it actually turned over $200 profit for me & i asked if i could speak to a client (even though they could give me a fake person ) that bought a system and has had it for a while to see how they were going with it .but said he couldn’t give any contacts out as per the client priviliges or protection law or whatever ? was reluctant to let me contact anyone, but said we could come in to the office any time to meet. He said they were attached to an IT financial company under a umbrella corporation …if i have that right ! So not sure !!”

Sounds like the typical kind of excuses/spiel from scammers.

December: we are starting to get reports now from people ‘investing’ with them. Accounts are losing money and what’s more, are designed to lose and then the client gets the upsell for the ‘improved’ version.
Have also heard of them weaseling their way out of the 10 day cooling off period obligations, refusing to honour it and refund payments.
These are exactly the same tactics that Charterhurst and Laybet Professionals used.

Update 27/1/17: This just in from the Brisbane Times:

http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/queensland/man-extradited-from-south-australia-over-alleged-6m-scam-20170126-gtzo0o.html

We suggest exercising a HIGH degree of caution in dealing with Exelon.
Be wary of signing contracts with a 10 day cooling off period. The previous iterations of this company are notorious for not honouring them.

If you’ve had any experience dealing with them please get in touch with us!

One LIfe

Not much time to write this report, but it seems Roy McDonald is still at it after years of complaints about his ‘wealth’ seminars.

His current business is under the name of One Life , onelife.com.au

A good place to start reading about his seminars is this article from the SMH

http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2003/09/12/1063341768117.html?from=storyrhs

There’s plenty more if you search the web.

On their Facebook page, there’s a disturbing lack of comments relating experiences at the seminars. All we see is people going in, and then nothing..

While it may be argued that the seminars are transformative, they are not transformative in the positive way that people expect.

Also there’s a brilliant piece on this by Denise Brailey, (now head of the Banking and Finance Consumers Support Association )

you can read it here where she not only explains some of McDonald’s schemes , but also the buck passing that goes on between ASIC, the ACCC and Fair Trading.

Harry Omeros charged with Fraud!

Breaking News! Harry Omeros has been arrested and charged with fraud.

latest update from the Gold Coast Bulletin says that he has scammed over $400k from 12 people. We think they rather understate the figures! So, if you’ve been scammed by any of the below businesses please get in touch with Qld police!

Bidlife

 

Freedom Circle

yet another binary options scam..

this time brought to you by Kyle Stanford ( if he really exists, which we doubt)

First red flag: you can earn $5,000 a day with only 30 minutes work, just by clicking a few buttons!

No risk!

Yeah, right.

One of the video testimonials features an actor who also did  a testimonial for another scam we feature, Asset Solutions Australia

binary options scam

binary options scam

They go on to tell you in the introductory video how sick they are of online scams and they would never be like that, taking money off people who are just trying to get ahead.  Gee, they must be such nice people.

Please don’t be fooled by this rubbish. You will be asked to open a brokerage account where you will have to deposit a minimum amount of money. The scammers will make a commission on this deposit. That’s all they want. They don’t care that you will lose your money using their ‘no fail’ trading system.

Market Trading Global

markettradingglobal.com scam

*Update 5 Sep 2016: Harry Omeros has been arrested and charged with fraud

 

Yet another in the string of scams that started as the AMTP and has recently been Asset Solutions Australia, Property Investment Providers, Bidlife, Lifestyle Profits, etc.

Selling trading signals services in indexes, gold, forex, etc like many times before. Using some of their stalwart actors for the fake testimonials. Jake Elliot from the mines at Asset Solutions Australia has now become Jake James. Same story.  Maria Williams from Property Invesment Providers has now become Laura, still searching for that extra income.
