Complain to your Pastor, Priest, Minister or other civic minded leaders. Get them to help put this type of Business in the hands of Law Enforcement. Help to abolish this type of operation with new Laws passed to protect our children and our families.

It is alleged by the hundreds of complaints I have read, that these people are organized (censored), targeting ANYONE who has Internet access, (and some that do not have Internet access). They are specifically targeting children and teens more often than other individuals.

This 'NOCREDITCARD pornography' (censored) ' (censored) must be stopped!
This was a planned (censored) (censored) . To advertise "NOCREDITCARD pornography pop-up" ads primarily on children/teen sites, SELF DOWNLOAD and INSTALL firewall-killers, spyware, Trojan worms and dialers, send (censored) bills to owners of the telephone lines.

These 'pornography pop-ups' and 'pornography emails' are SET to automatically download and install Alyon/eGroup's products NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO.

Alyon and eGroup's 'POP-UP' AND 'DRIVE-BY' DOWNLOADS AND INSTALLATIONS Some of the ILLEGAL DOWNLOAD and INSTALLATION ITEMS INCLUDE: minidialer, iedisco.exe, elksoftfirewallkiller, I-Worm.sobig, IEAccess/IEAccess2, StripPlayer, forgetfirst, dialsecond, activestripsetup.dll, openme.exe, PopupToOpen, ExitPopupCBUrl-http://usa-network.video-party.com/index, ExitPopupUrl-http://auth.us.egwn.net/get-ani.php, IEAccessUAH-http://www.normal.video-party.com, Electronic Billing System, Data F-http://www.normal.video-party.com, blacklist, video, egroup, alyon.net, xww.de, start-up, hooker, strip, worm, sobig, ACX_Install, VLoading, ActiveStripSetup, and many more malicious items.

And yes, Ms. B. Jo McAllister, YOUR PRODUCTS ARE VIRUSES! Don't jump we want Law Enforcement to catch you!

Stephane Toubal, Tina McAllister, Tina Whitfield, and Joe Doherty are the "Just-Gotta-Make-A-Buck-Off-Any-US Citizen-At-Any-Cost" kind of people. When interviewed by WWOR TV, Mr. Toubal (or is it Ms.) said we are ALL (censored)! ALL OF US, Mr. Toubal? HOW CAN THAT BE? I suppose this would include the City Hall in Oklahoma, the Church in South Carolina, and the HUNDREDS OF INNOCENT VICTIMS who have come forward and filed complaints.

(Many have recommended saving these items to a disk for evidence before deleting them.)

Search your computer for 'mini dialer and 'iedisco.exe' and delete them. They have created a folder called 'eGroup'- find and delete it. They have also made changes to your Windows Registry. (See Rip-Off Report #45776 - items found in Windows Registry.) There are many Rip-Off Reports with instructions on finding and removing Alyon/eGroup's "POP-UP" and "DRIVE-BY" DOWNLOADS AND INSTALLATIONS. Spybot S&D with the latest updates will find and remove ALL of Alyon/eGroup's items, if you cannot manually remove them. *Use at your own risk*

The so-called "numerous safeguards" that Detective David T. Cheek (GwinnettCountyGeorgiaPoLiceDept.) claims are in place to prevent 'unintentional access' to the material provided by Alyon/eGroup NEVER APPEARED on our computer screens. Read on--Norton Works, doxdesk.com, and spywareguide.com will explain WHY they never appeared on our screens.

Norton Works classifies Alyon/eGroup's software as "Nuissanceware and Dialerware that takes advantage of flaws in the computer web browser." Persons running MSIE 5.0 or MSIE 6.0 without service pack1 are still at risk.
This is what www.spywareguide.com and www.doxdesk.com have to say about Alyon/eGroup and their products:

Electronic Group: Be EXTREMELY careful viewing pages made by these people: many of their pages exploit IE security holes (particularly the Content-Disposition zero-byte-in-extension bug) to insert their certificates into your Trusted Publishers list, allowing THEM TO INSTALL THEIR PROGRAMS AUTOMATICALLY.

E-group uses security holes in Internet Explorer for installing their software. Seems to have a secret relationship with alyon.net (Alyon should be their competitor, but Alyon has it's support pages on egwn.net) Products by Alyon/eGroup: Stripplayer and IEAccess/IEAccess2eGroup Product: StripplayerFull Name: StripPlayer Websearch Type: Dialer Also Known as: strip-player StripSetup Created by: Electronic Group Danger Level: 3 Level 3: Minimal Threat May profile users or broadcast data back to a server with ("opt-out") permission. Removal is hard.

Comment: Installed by ActiveX 'DRIVE-BY-DOWNLOAD' on porn related pages THAT MIGHT BE OPENED BY "POP-UP ADVERTISING". Installation can happen "TOTALLY AUTOMATICALLY" on versions of Internet Explorer older than IE6 Service Pack 1, as a security hole is exploited to add the manufacturers, 'Electronic Group', to the list of publishers you trust, "ALLOWING THEM TO INSTALL ANY SOFTWARE THEY LIKE."

Security Issues: The 'StripSetup' ActiveX control can be used on ANY PAGE, by ANY AUTHOR, to DOWNLOAD AND RUN ANY EXECUTABLE FILE. THERE ARE NO SECURITY CHECKS, WHATSOEVER.

Properties: Stays resident in background

Stealth: hides itself from user. Makes changes to browser settingseGroup product: IEAccess/IEAccess2. Full Name: IEAccess: Websearch Type: Dialer Also Known as: IEAccess2 eGroup. Created by: Electronic Group. Danger Level: 4 Moderate Threat: Level 4. Nearly impossible to remove manually

Comment: Installed by ActiveX "DRIVE-BY-DOWNLOAD" on porn related pages WHICH MIGHT BE "OPENED" or "REDIRECTED TO" by "POP-UP ADVERTISING". May be INSTALLED AUTOMATICALLY, WITHOUT PROMPTING, on Internet Explorer versions earlier than IE6 Service Pack 1, THANKS TO A SECURITY HOLE. The installer pages exploit this to run an EXE, which adds 'Electronic Group' to the list of trusted publishers, whose software IE will install AUTOMATICALLY WITHOUT ASKING.

Security Issues: IEAccess adds it manufacturers to the Window Trusted Publisher list. This means ANY web page can make sure ANY SOFTWARE signed by Electronic Group gets installed AUTOMATICALLY WHEN YOU VISIT IT. It is also suspected that it may be possible to use the IEAccess ActiveX control on ANY WEB PAGE to cause an arbitrary unsigned code to be executed.

Properties. Stealth: hides itself from user. Makes changes to browser settings. Removal-Spybot S&D update 2002-11-17 and later can remove IEAccess.. More links about this company: http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite. Information above provided by Norton Works, www.spywareguide.com and www.doxdesk.com. There are many other sites that verify this information.

DO NOT send these (censored) a copy of your child's birth certificate. Only a Government Agency can require you to do this.

A MINOR CANNOT ENTER INTO A BINDING CONTRACT!

DO NOT PAY THESE (censored)BILLS.

ALYON MADE AN ATTACK ON MY COMPUTER LIKE JACK BOOTED GESTAPO (censored) BREAKING DOWN MY FIREWALL

Alyon Technologies made an Internet Attack on my home and my family on October 13, 2002. I have spent hundreds of hours trying to look for the full group of perpetrators to this Breach of My Security'. I started by calling and writing a letter to the company. Alyon Technologies sends a four-page story on how they can justify why they are Terrorizing' my family and my economic security.

Letters and phone calls have gone out to the Attorney General of CA, FCC, FTC, Elected officials in Norcross, My Congressman, My State Senators, Secretary of State in Georgia, Governor of New Jersey, the FBI, the GBI, Pacific Bell, AT&T, Archbishop of New Jersey, L.A.Times, S.F. Examiner, N. Y. Times, O'Reilly, AP, UPI, INTERPOL, and others.

President Bush has passed a HomeLand Security Act in 2002. It has the potential to bring the full power of all law enforcement agencies working in unison together to fight Terrorism'. He also made a speech on Federal Efforts to Promote Online Safety, http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2002/10/print/20021023-8.html

I say Aylon Technologies is using Terrorism' because by definition this is what they are doing. Only through http://www.ripoffreport.com and other private citizen postings about Alyon Technologies made me realize this is a (censored) Organization.

Alyon Technologies is using ' tactics from other countries as well. Alyon Technologies has computer ties to France, Spain, the Netherlands, and Guinea Bissau, Africa. My original posting web address is http://www.ripoffreport.com/update.asp?RipID=38308

"Our National Security depends on success in the War on Terrorism, which includes military, judicial, diplomatic, financial and humanitarian actions both at home and abroad." http://www.whitehouse.gov/response/. I see the words financial and judicial at home and abroad in there!

Define terror. Terror is: "such fear as agitates body and mind; dread; alarm; cause of fear."

Now the definition of Terror sure fits what Alyon Technologies is doing.

Have I gotten any help from Law Enforcement yet? No, or if I have they have not told me!

Have I gotten help through the public posting at http://www.ripoffreport.com ? Yes and the hundreds of other people who have posted their alarm, dread and disbelief about Alyon Technologies to this website.

The Whitehouse has appointed a special Homeland Security agent to each state. In California it is George Vinson Special Advisor on State Security 916-324-8908 . However, it does not give an e-mail address.

Alyon Technologies has committed an act of Terrorism. It has taken me this long to realize it.

I hope others will come forward send a letter to the appropriate person in their state designated to be in control of Homeland Security http://www.whitehouse.gov/homeland/

I called Alyon (201) 865-7600 to check the status of my bill. First, the woman denied they had received a Certified letter. I sent it with a return receipt. I was told they would remove the charges provided I send them a copy of a minor's birth certificate and verification the minor was living at the address of my phone number. Forget it, in my opinion Alyon Technologies are (Censored).

They want information that I wouldn't give out to anyone other than government authorities.

I don't know that anyone here intentionally went to the Alyon website.

The Attorney General of California has a copy of my complaint but they have not contacted Alyon Technologies because of staff cutbacks and not enough Californians have complained about this company. Thanks loads Attorney General Bill Lockyer, you've lost my vote.

FCC says this did not qualify as a 'Slamming' violation because the guidelines don't cover Internet issues.

The FTC just did an update on my file when I contacted them today. Multitudes (probably thousands...as in Verity International, Integretel and eBillit) will have to complain to them before some investigating gets done.

KRON tv in San Francisco, CA did a piece on Alyon Technologies, Inc. http://www.kron.com/Global/story.asp?s=%20%201158081 Costly Computer (censored) Leads to ID Theft

PLEASE CONTINUE TO FILE COMPLAINTS WITH ALL AUTHORITIES LISTED IN THESE RIP-OFF REPORTS. WE ARE MAKING PROGRESS! WE WILL NOT LET UP, BACK OFF, OR GIVE IN UNTIL WE SEE THIS (censored) COMPANY SHUT DOWN!

Lakewood, New Jersey several connected entities Alyon is linked to Seacacus, NJ using it on their original billing. Alyon is also linked to Telecom Billing Systems (Lakewood, NJ) When Alyon can't get you to pay, they send it to Collections with Tellcollect (out of Atlanta, GA and a div. of USCI, more on Tellcollect below), it shows Norcross, GA because that is where Telcollect operates an office. Alyon is also using a new company connected to First Credit Services Inc. Info on First Credit below also.

More recently, Salvani has consulted for a variety of small-growth companies. He's an expert in an obscure financial practice known as a reverse merger, in which a private company can go public by merging into a failing publicly traded company. While many investors prefer to see a company go public independently, defenders of the technique note that it provides a faster route to the public markets, as well as potential tax benefits.

U.S. SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION Litigation Release No. 15826 / July 30, 1998 SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION v. SAM D. SCHWARTZ, BROAD CAPITAL ASSOCIATES, INC., MURRAY A. HUBERFELD, AND DAVID B. BODNER, Civil Action No. CV 98-6142 DDP (MCx)(C.D. Cal.) On July 30, 1998, the Commission announced that it filed various legal proceedings against Incomnet, Inc., a publicly held corporation headquartered in Woodland Hills, California, and three of its former officers and directors for their roles in a series of (censored) schemes in violation of the federal securities laws. The Commission also charged Broad Capital Associates, Inc. and Broad Capital's owners with violations of the securities registration and reporting provisions of the federal securities laws.

The proceedings brought by the Commission include a lawsuit filed in federal court in Los Angeles against Sam D. Schwartz, Incomnet's former President and Chairman of the Board, Broad Capital, and Broad Capital's owners, Murray A. Huberfeld and David B. Bodner. Schwartz, who is 58 years old and a resident of Encino, California, is charged with securities (censored)for causing Incomnet to file false forms with the Commission and issue false press releases. Schwartz is also charged with using a nominee account to personally trade in Incomnet securities and for failing to disclose this trading as required by the federal securities laws. Specifically, the Complaint alleges that on August 28, 1995, Schwartz caused Incomnet to file a Form 8-K with the Commission which falsely stated that Schwartz had received prior written approval and consent from Incomnet's Board of Directors to establish a personal account to trade in Incomnet's stock. The Complaint further alleges that Schwartz caused Incomnet to issue a false press release in September 1995 that repeated some of the false statements in the Form 8-K and to file a Form 10-Q with the Commission in November 1995 that referenced the false Form 8-K. Finally, the Complaint alleges that in January 1995, Schwartz caused Incomnet to issue two press releases falsely denying the existence of the Commission's then-ongoing investigation of Incomnet, even though Schwartz knew at that time of the Commission's investigation. The Complaint also alleges that from June 1994 through July 1995, Schwartz purchased, through a nominee account, approximately 1,100,000 shares of Incomnet stock and sold approximately 900,000 shares of Incomnet stock without timely

On July 22, 1997, Incomnet was named in a lawsuit, JAMES A. , BELTZ, ET. AL. V. SAMUEL D. SCHWARTZ, RITA SCHWARTZ, STEPHEN A. , CASWELL, JOEL W. GREENBERG, INCOMNET, INC., DAVID BODNER AND MURRAY HUBERFELD, Case No. 97-1678 (MJD/AJB), in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota. The lawsuit was filed by approximately twenty plaintiffs who were allowed to opt out of the GAYLES class action lawsuit to pursue a lawsuit on their own. The complaint alleges that Mr. Schwartz and the other defendants created a (censored) scheme to drive up the price of Incomnet's stock in violation of Sections 9, 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, and Minnesota law. The lawsuit alleges losses by the plaintiffs of approximately $1.5 million and seeks unspecified damages. The case is in the discovery phase.

Hello Gregory, You've stated in your post that Alyon Technologies cannot bill consumers. I've read Judge Storys' decision and other sites that concern Alyon and I haven't seen that information.



I have ten days to respond to the Attorney Generals' Consumer Protection Division and I am compiling all the information I can get. I appreciate the help. Keep up the good work.

State accuses 2 Secaucus firms of (censored)



Monday, May 19, 2003



By Todd Perlman

Newhouse News Service

Journal city editor



The state has filed suit against Secaucus-based Alyon Technologies Inc., alleging the company (censored)diverted Internet users from their usual service providers to its own network, resulting in unsolicited pornographic "pop-ups" and hundreds of dollars of unwanted charges.

Alyon's practices constituted "serious violations" of the state Consumer (censored)Act, according to Genene Morris, a spokeswoman with the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs.



The state Attorney General's Office filed the three-count complaint in Superior Court in Jersey City on Thursday, along with a separate suit that alleges another Secaucus company and its principal carried out a (censored)debt-collection scheme.



Both Alyon and the other Secaucus firm, National Check Control, are also targets of the Federal Trade Commission. Last week, the FTC appeared before a federal judge in Newark in the National Check case and filed suit against Alyon in Georgia.



New Jersey is one of 12 states to sue Alyon, alleging the company switched Internet users to its network so it could bill them for their services, even though users neither sought nor wanted the services; some users - as many as 350 lodged complaints - told Consumer Affairs that despite efforts to delete unsolicited pop-ups or spam e-mails that were linked to Alyon and promoted porn sites, they were drawn back into the network.



At a charge of $4.99 per minute, some users racked up hundreds of dollars in charges, even for time they spent trying to disconnect from Alyon, the state alleges.



Further, the suit says, Alyon offered little more than superficial warnings to prevent youngsters from entering porn sites, and did not implement meaningful safeguards against "adult" entertainment featured on its network.

"As a result, many parents complained that their minors were able to access the pornographic materials on Alyon's network without proper authorization," Reni Erdos, Consumer Affairs director, said in a released statement.

A call for comment to Alyon's Harmon Plaza headquarters was directed to a public relations office in New York. Hugh Mansfield, a spokesman, said Alyon is "extremely disappointed" by the states' and the FTC's decisions to take formal action.



"Over the past several weeks, Alyon has fully cooperated with the FTC on a voluntary basis after Alyon itself alerted the FTC to company procedures that had been the focus of inquiry from several states," Mansfield said. "Alyon has also been working closely with a number of state representatives and has reached agreements to enhance its policies and procedures to further ensure that its practices are in full compliance with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations."

Alyon President Stephane Touboul, in a prepared statement, called the litigation against his firm "unwarranted."



"The company is committed to continuing its efforts to work cooperatively with both state and federal authorities, and to ensure that any issue of concern raised by such authorities is dealt with promptly and to the full satisfaction of government authorities, consumers and the company," Touboul said.

The state is seeking to have Alyon pay restitution to consumers as well as civil monetary penalties, attorneys fees and costs, though Morris could not say how much money is involved.



No court date has been set in the Alyon case or in the state's case against the Secaucus-based debt-collection firm, National Check Control.

But in their own action, FTC attorneys persuaded a federal judge Thursday to freeze the assets of Barry Sussman, National Check Control's principal, and temporarily restrain his company from using collection tactics.



State and federal regulators say Sussman's firm abused, harassed and extorted millions of dollars from people who allegedly passed bad checks.



Sussman, a Fort Lee resident who during a 1980s prison stint for credit (censored)wrote a how-to manual called "I (censored) -You (censored) ," insisted he had done nothing wrong.



"Evidently, there are a lot of people that don't like the fact that they are being aggressively pursued for their unlawful obligations," he said after the hearing in federal court in Newark. "We are the largest purchaser of bad checks in the United States. All I can say is this is a legitimate business."



Authorities aren't disputing the size of the business. They said Sussman's companies - which also included Check Investors Inc., Check Enforcers Inc. and Jaredco - collected as much as $10 million during the past two years from 42,000 consumers and millions of dollars more since 1995.



State Labor Department records submitted in the case suggest Sussman drew a salary close to $150,000 as the sole officer or a president of the companies.



In the process, regulators contend, Sussman's collectors committed some of the most egregious violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act that they have encountered. They also said a federal grand jury is weighing criminal charges against the defendant.



Sussman bought hundreds of thousands of bad checks for pennies on the dollar from legitimate companies that had written off the collections, officials said. The debts were often minor and sometimes stemmed from accounting mistakes. Some of the victims didn't even know about the bad checks because their checkbooks had been stolen.

Sussman's collectors allegedly tacked illegal fees - usually $125 or $130 - onto the check balances. They also purported to be law enforcement personnel and threatened the debtors or their relatives with jail.



"Regardless of whether the consumers owed the debts or not, the defendants' allegedly aggressive and shameless tactics fly in the face of basic decency and New Jersey law," acting state Attorney General Peter Harvey said.

Sussman said nothing during the hearing, but his attorney, Steve LaCheen, argued that many of the allegations "are simply way off the mark."

LaCheen called the consumers "deadbeats" and contended that because Sussman bought the accounts outright, he was not a debt collector and thus not subject to federal regulations.

The judge scheduled a June 9 hearing on whether to impose a permanent injunction."

I think you should know about French DGSE involvement with Alyon

AUTHOR: Giselle - (U.S.A.)

Please do not use my true name because it would be very bad for me and my family. I am French but do not want to go back to my country.



I know that Stephane Touboul has visited several French mission in America and DGSE people met with him. I really think that my country may be involved in this problem company.



My boyfriend was searching for game (censored) for PlayStation and next month he received very large bill for pornography. He was very mad. I never see him so mad before. I tell him about a conversation at a mission evening party where Stephane Touboul was with some DGSE guys. They had some computer people with them. This was about a year ago but now the lawyer Mr. Robert comes to meet with DGSE.



I am so afraid they will take me back to France and I will never see my boyfriend again just to keep this undiscoverable. Maybe if this company closes I can stay.

-- Alyon Technologies Inc. ("Alyon" or the "Company") is extremely disappointed by the Federal Trade Commission's (the "FTC") decision to take formal action against the Company, as well as lawsuits and/or investigations launched by several State Attorney General Offices.

United States v. Tinney, No. 03-141-MMM (C.D. Cal., indictment filed Feb. 13, 2003). This defendant is charged with six counts of wire (censored), relating to an alleged scheme to steal nearly $600,000 of computer equipment from businesses in Wenham, Massachusetts and Santa Barbara, California. According to the indictment, the defendant set up a fictitious corporation named Data Systems International, ostensibly located in Las Vegas, Nevada, complete with a fully featured web site. In addition, he allegedly set up a sham escrow company identified as American Escrow Corporation, also equipped with an elaborate web site which he claimed was located in San Francisco, California.



The (censored) escrow company representative allegedly would report to the intended victims that the required funds had been deposited into escrow for payment of the computer equipment the defendant had negotiated to buy from victim companies. These victim companies allegedly would ship computer equipment to Data Systems at an address in Las Vegas with the expectation that once the computer equipment was received by Data Systems, the funds held in escrow for payment would be released. The defendant, using an alias and false identification, planned to receive the computer equipment at Data Systems' Las Vegas address (nothing more than a mail drop) and planned to sell the equipment on the black market without ever paying the victims for their property, according to the indictment.

California - Eastern District



United States v. Waage (E.D. Cal., indictment filed Jan. 2, 2003, guilty plea May 5, 2003). Two defendants have been indicted on (censored)- and money laundering-related charges relating to one of the largest Internet investment (censored)cases in the country.



The Tri-West Investment Club was an Internet-based investment (censored)scheme that allegedly netted more than $60 million from 15,000 investors worldwide. Tri-West solicited investments in what the Web site termed a "Bank Debenture Trading Program" or "Prime Bank" note program. The Web site allegedly guaranteed investors a 120 percent annual rate of return with "no risk of losing the investor's principal investment," as well as substantial referral fees for directing others to the Web site. The case alleged that these investment instruments were nonexistent. According to the indictment, Tri-West never actually invested any of the investors' money in any "prime bank note" program, but instead used new investor funds to make "dividend" payments to earlier investors to give the false impression of profitability. The balance of the funds were allegedly used by the two defendants and others to purchase millions of dollars of real properties in Mexico and Costa Rica, as well as a yacht and helicopter, and to funnel money to dozens of shell companies created in Costa Rica to conceal the defendants' ill-gotten gains.



The indictment also seeks the forfeiture of millions of dollars worth of real properties in Costa Rica and Mexico, a yacht, a helicopter, over a dozen cars, and millions of dollars in bank accounts in Latvia, Mexico and Costa Rica. The two defendants, who were extradited from Costa Rica to Sacramento in December 2002 to face federal charges, remain in custody pending trial. One of these defendants, Alyn Waage, pleaded guilty on May 5, 2003 to mail and wire (censored) charges as well as conspiracy to commit money laundering. A third defendant, Cary Waage, had pleaded guilty in 2002 to separate charges relating to Tri-West. Three other individuals allegedly connected with the operations of Tri-West remain fugitives.

Federal authorities reportedly received complaints from more than 190 victims in states outside of North Carolina and in foreign countries who did not receive the products offered or did not receive a refund from the defendant's companies.



Pennsylvania - Western District

United States v. Blair, Crim. No. 03-93 (W.D. Pa., indictment filed March 12, 2003).

United States v. Honse, Crim. No. 02-262 (W.D. Pa., guilty plea March 21, 2003) and United States v. Cain, Crim. No. 02-260 (W.D. Pa., guilty plea March 28, 2003). Two defendants in related cases have pleaded to conspiracy charges relating to a scheme to (censored)computer and software wholesaler, Ingram Micro. The scheme consisted of co-conspirators making (censored)orders for computer hardware over the Internet using the ordering accounts of legitimate Ingram Micro customers. The merchandise was shipped to various "drop" locations provided by participants in the scheme. The defendants and others would then pick up the hardware and take it to Indiana, Pennsylvania, where it was shipped overseas. The defendants were involved in (censored)obtaining approximately $96,000 worth of computer equipment from Ingram Micro.

United States v. Kruhlou, Crim. No. 02-266 (W.D. Pa., guilty plea Apr. 10, 2003). The defendant pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of conspiracy to commit mail (censored)and wire (censored). The defendant, who was originally from Belarus, participated in a mail and wire (censored)scheme that had two interconnecting parts. The first part of the scheme was that members of the conspiracy hacked into eBay's computer system and logged onto the system as if they were someone who had previously sold items and received favorable ratings from purchasers of those items. Once a seller received a favorable rating, it was much easier to sell items because there was a proven track record of delivering what was promised.



Members of the scheme then put items up for auction pretending that they were sellers with the proven track records. The successful bidder in the auction was directed to send certified checks or money orders to an address in Pennsylvania, but no items were delivered. The second part of the scheme involved the unauthorized use of credit card numbers to purchase items online that were then shipped to addresses in Pennsylvania. These items were then repackaged and sent to addresses in California. The addresses in Pennsylvania were set up by two co-conspirators, also originally from Belarus, who used false identifications. These two individuals, who worked under the direction of Kruhlou, would stay in apartments for approximately two weeks at a time and receive products and checks at those locations. They would then move to a different apartment and, again, receive checks and products. They moved to a total of four different apartments during the course of the conspiracy until they were arrested by the Pennsylvania State Police.

United States v. Patterson, Crim. No. 03-86 (W.D. Pa., indictment filed Feb. 26, 2003). The defendant is charged with password trafficking and computer damage. According to the indictment presented to the court, the defendant, a former employee of American Eagle Outfitters, was charged with trafficking in passwords and similar information that would have permitted others to gain unauthorized access to the American Eagle Outfitters computer network. The defendant allegedly posted and maintained at a Yahoo hacker group posting board the username and password combinations of certain legitimate American Eagle Outfitters users, together with detailed instructions on how to hack into the wide area network of American Eagle Outfitters using those passwords.



The defendant was also charged with a series of computer intrusions into the American Eagle Outfitters computer network from November 27, 2002 through December 1, 2002. These intrusions allegedly were attempts to deny computer services to American Eagle Outfitters stores and customers in the United States and Canada during the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. These denial of service attempts were quickly identified by American Eagle personnel and corrective actions were implemented that limited their intended economic impact.



United States v. Thornhill, Crim. No. 02-84 (W.D. Pa., indictment filed Apr. 23, 2002). Two defendants were indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on charges of conspiracy, bank (censored), and access device (censored). According to the indictment, the defendants (censored)used the names, Social Security numbers, and other identifying information from two individuals to apply over the Internet to obtain bank loans and credit cards in the other people's names. They also allegedly made (censored)online purchases.

Washington - Western District



United States v. Noia, No. 03-205M (W.D. Wash., criminal complaint filed Apr. 22, 2003). The defendant is charged with five counts of wire (censored)relating to her allegedly posting of video and digital cameras for auction on eBay, accepting payment for goods, and failing to deliver the promised goods. The alleged loss amount is more than $30,000.

Wisconsin - Eastern District

United States v. Fibiger, No. 03-Cr-66 (E.D. Wisc., indictment filed Apr. 1, 2003). The defendant is charged with wire (censored)relating to his alleged solicitation of purchasers over the Internet and failure to deliver any of the merchandise promised. Reported losses in this case total approximately $40,000.

FINALLY: 13 States Sue Alyon Over Pop-Up Windows scam to consumers

AUTHOR: RJ - (U.S.A.)

13 States Sue Company Over Pop-Up Windows



By Associated Press



May 16, 2003, 12:53 AM EDT

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin and 12 other states are suing an Internet firm that allegedly billed people who tried to close pop-up windows for pornographic Web sites, the state's attorney general said Thursday.



The suits, filed in conjunction with the Federal Trade Commission, alleges New Jersey-based Alyon Technologies violated advertising and telecommunications laws.



Wisconsin's lawsuit claims Alyon connected Internet users to the company's toll phone number when they tried to close Alyon's pop-up windows advertising porn sites.



The toll number charges $5 a minute, Attorney General Peg Lautenschlager said, resulting in bills ranging from $14 to more than $1,000.



"The way this organization has allegedly been doing business is illegal, irresponsible and an outrageous misuse of Internet technology," she said.



Other states that have sued are California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, North Carolina, Nebraska, Texas and West Virginia.



Alyon officials said Thursday that they alerted the FTC to procedures the states are questioning and have been working with state lawmakers to make sure its practices comply with federal and state laws.



"Given our willingness and effort to work to resolve the consumer issues, we are stunned by the FTC's decision to initiate this unwarranted action," Alyon president Stephane Touboul said in a statement.

AUTHOR: Gregory - (U.S.A.)

10May2003



FROM: http://www.spywareinfo.com/newsletter

/archives/april-2003/9.php



(thank you spywareinfo.com)



(from April 9, 2003)



I didn't make that call!



Has this ever happened to you? You open your phone bill and find enormous charges for phone calls you never made to small island nations that you've never heard of. You ask your spouse if they made the phone calls, and they say no. You ask your children if they made the calls, and they proclaim their innocence. Certain that the charges are a mistake, you call the phone company to ask them to remove the charges. However, the phone company insists that the calls were made from your home, and they even have logs to prove it.



It was not a member of your family or a guest that ran up those charges. Nor has anyone has broken into your home to make phone calls. More than likely the culprit is your own personal computer. More specifically, it could have been a piece of software known as a "dialer."



A dialer program is just what it sounds like, software which uses your computer's modem to dial a telephone number. In recent months, there has been a massive upsurge of people discovering dialers installed on their computer without their knowledge. The dialers call up telephone numbers in little-known countries which cost a varying amount of money per minute. In nearly all cases, the people stuck with the bill have no idea what is going on.



CASHING IN

One company whose name you might find on your telephone bill after a dialer infection is Alyon Technologies, a telemarketing company located in The United States. There are roughly 1,072 complaints about Alyon at badbusinessbureau.com.



Alyon is under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission as well as 20 different state Attorneys-General for false, unsolicited billings and (censored). I've been providing some assistance to the Florida Attorney-General's office in their investigation of Alyon Tech.



If you fall victim to one of these dialers, it is strongly recommended that you not pay the long distance bill, regardless of threats of disconnected service. Dispute the charges, in writing, with your long distance carrier. Warn them that any interference with your telephone service will result in a complaint with your local utilities commission. If you are located in The United States, also file a complaint with the FCC and your state Attorney-General's office about the charges and the companies trying to collect them and file a RIp-off Report on this web site. More information



Don't expect your telephone company to be very sympathetic to the fact that you are being (censored) . Some companies are honorable and will work with you to identify false charges and write them off. Unfortunately, many others are all too happy to rake in the profits from this unethical practice. AT&T, for instance, is currently being sued for being a willing participant in these (Censored). Send them copies of your Rip-off Reprot and other Rip-off Reports, send even the search results pages with over 1,072 complaints here on Rip-off Report.



Bell Canada is going so far as to actually break its own terms of use by threatening people with disconnection of long distance and local service for refusal to pay the (censored)charges. How much money Bell Canada is making from the victims of these dialers is not currently known, but the company's practices are being investigated by various consumer watchdog groups.



Bell Canada disagrees that what they are doing violates the agreement. Section 22.2 (d) of the terms of service states that Bell can not disconnect service if customers are making partial payments to cover undisputed charges, as long as "Bell does not have reasonable grounds for believing the purpose of that dispute is to evade (or) delay payment." However, Bell Canada has started using some questionable billing methods that make it impossible to pay local charges before paying off long distance charges. As a result, hundreds of people who dispute their long distance charges are being threatened with the disconnection of local service.



CHECK YOUR SECURITY SETTINGS

The number one way to become infected with one of these dialers is through unsafe ActiveX security settings. When Internet Explorer loads a page put together by a distributor of one of these dialers, an ActiveX script is loaded which downloads and runs the program. If you have any doubt that this can happen, go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/browsertest/ using Internet Explorer and see for yourself (this is perfectly safe. This is not a real dialer).



Once it has executed on the computer, the dialer can be set to load at startup. Once loaded into memory, it can wait for the computer to be idle for a certain amount of time. When it decides that the computer has been idle long enough that everyone is either asleep or at work, it will activate the phone line and dial the expensive long distance number. Some dialers don't even wait for the computer to sit idle. They will just terminate the connection to your ISP and redial.



PROTECT YOURSELF

Make absolutely certain that you do not have unsigned or unsafe ActiveX enabled in your security settings. If the programmer can't sign his own code or have it certified as safe, do you really want it running on your computer?



There is also a program produced by an Australian company which will completely lock down your computer dial-up networking system. stopITnow! is a program which examines Windows Dial up Networking entries and prevents unacceptable numbers from being dialed. It disallows Direct Access dialing, preventing unwanted dialers from accessing the modem. It prevents Windows Phone dialer connections for restricted phone numbers. It also checks the Windows Dial up Networking Dialog to prevent unauthorised users from dialing restricted numbers.



stopITnow!'s maker says that it works with telephone systems in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia; 60 different countries altogether.If you have children or guests who use the computer often, this is protection you should think about having. Considering the damage to your computer, the time lost fixing it, and the potential financial losses that can be caused by a dialer infection, stopITnow! is very cheap insurance.



stopITnow! normally costs $14.25, but the company was kind enough to knock 20% off for SpywareInfo readers for a limited time. See http://www.stopITnow.com.au/protection

/spywareinfo.htm for more information.



SPEAK OUT!

A while back I started a thread at the message boards asking people to post about their experience with a dialer. Dozens of people have posted there and the thread itself has been viewed thousands of times. If you have ever been the victim of a dialer, I'd like to hear about it. Lawmakers are starting to take notice of this (censored) , and this is the place I'd like them to start looking. http://www.spywareinfo.com/rd/dialers/

2nd, I'VE had internet explorer 6 w/sp1 since 2002. Idownloaded a program called "SPYBOT search and destroy". It told me I had a hole in I.E! SO after a few downloads, I found the right patch. (I was surfing the net for a year with that hole!)



ANOTHER thing to do is surf the web unseen. DO this by using a program called "anonymizer" (http"//www.anonymizer.com) $29

another product called "ultimate anonymizer "$15,

(http"//www.ultimate-anonymity.com).one way you get attacked is because attackers can see your I.P address leading to your computer.



THE two products mentioned above will make you"invisible" on the net. THE link to the offical website to download "SPYBOT" is http"//security.kolla.de/. THIS really works! I had a dialer program install itself 1yr ago on my desktop, so this kind of b.s isn't new.

It wouldn't delete. MY isp gave me 3months free because it couldn't be deleted. With the phone unplugged it couldn't dial out.

AUTHOR: Edwin - (U.S.A.)

Jennifer: Please visit the FTC.GOV link provided to read you rights regarding the placement of a 900 call, I believe it will be of help in your case. Someone should also look into my previous comments regarding the status of both Alyon and TelCollect and their lack of LLC lisencing (at the time the judgements were filed)in the State's they have filed for judgement regarding collection of debt in, as it is my understanding that they should have no right to stand before a judge or to file for any judgement against any plaintif within a State when no LLC has been previously saught.

Hello,

Thank you for posting all of this information on the evil "Alyon Technologies" cabal. My family and I have just fallen victim to these despicable humans. Our phone bill came in the mail with a charge for $100 for a phone call that was made to Africa through a 1-900 number. We were completely stumped on how this could've happened. We've never heard of this company before (and we don't even know anyone in Africa!), so your information was most helpful and informative, and helped to shed a great deal of light on our situation.

Alyon Technologies, Inc. may be a probe for a more serious Future Cyber-Attack

AUTHOR: Gregory - (U.S.A.)

24April2003 So far we have over 900 complaints posted on the RipOffReport about Alyon Technologies, Inc.



I read of Investigations that are supposed to be underway by Atlanta, Georgia and other government agencies. Yet, complaints continue to come in.



Cyber-security is a very serious and very real threat to Americans. The Pentagon did a probe on its' vulnerabilities under the name of Eligible Receiver' and the FBI ran a scenario called Moonlight Maze'.



http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/cyberwar/ A Cyber-Attack is what occurred when Alyon Technologies, Inc./USCI, Inc/Telcollect, Inc. created a program modification on my computer in October 2002.



The government needs to tell all of us, Alyon Technologies, Inc. have been taken out, stopped and prosecuted. How do we as citizens know if this was not just a vulnerability probe?



A probe that would have already given the perpetrator Alyon Technologies, Inc. security information on each of our computers, to be used against us at a later date.



Please continue to complain to any authorities that I have listed. Further D in Louisiana has mentioned several News agencies to e-mail. Send a copy of your complaint to the following web address:

From report http://www.RipOffReport.com/view.asp?id=46628



A consumer installed a program from www.hotbar.com for use to decorate her emails. She changed the design above the address bar. In the page she came across an Icon ad.



It appears that Alyon Technologies, Inc. had tagged the Ad (mhtml:mid://00000099/!cid:image001.gif@01C2F6CF.26680690).



When she clicked on the ad it self-installed into her computer Alyon's rogue Dialerware Pornographic download without her knowledge or consent.







The Icon was benign enough. This reaffirms that Alyon Technologies, Inc. Dialerware can and does self install even from simple 'No Adult' Icons.

This will embarrass the Hell-o out of them.

From a previous posting I have told you that USCI, Inc. was involved in a bankruptcy. I have listed the three main players we know about.

Dear Mayor J. Christian Bollwage:



A Company called Alyon Technologies. Inc. is sending billing statements from your town address. Alyon Technologies, USCI and Telcollect are all working together pushing a NOCREDIT CARD (censored) on the Internet.



They are harassing, intimidating, terrorizing thousands of people here in the United States by downloading a rogue program. This program opens and takes control over vital Microsoft software settings. One Dialerware program they obtained from Lyon France takes over control of victims' computer. It makes itself the default dialer and dials out to an overseas number. This number is connected to Pornography and victims do not often times know they are even connected to the site. Several Television stations have run a story on Alyon Technologies regarding their program, pornography and identity theft. Please investigate this business. They are a (censored) enterprise. I would be glad to have you contact me if you have questions or comments. I would also like to direct you to a website so you can get more information.

Alyon Technologies, Inc. flies over in Stealth Cyber-Terrorist Virus dropping dirty, nasty leaflets to children while BIG BUSINESS helps cover ASSets and looks on!

AUTHOR: Gregory - (U.S.A.)

21March2003



I was going to check out a connection to a place called Kosher Delight http://www.kdexpress.com/. I find the name of Murray and Phillip Huberfeld, theboss@kdexpress.com .



Huberfeld is a dubious individual to say the least.



Then I find a different web site connected to Kosher Delight. http://www.netatwork.com/press_060303.asp. (Their page subject) "New York - September 17, 2002 - Responding to the increased demand for Kosher Fast food, Net@Work, a leading IT services firm, has developed www.kdexpress.com, the launch website for the Kosher Delight Restaurant chain."



I clicked on the Partners Tab on NetAtWork.com and it states "We leverage our individual and collective strengths to implement systems that are well tested in the open market, as well offer full customization and servicing for any system or product we provide. "



To my disbelief I found Microsoft, ACCPAC, Best Software New York, HP/Compaq, Cisco Systems,Citrix , SalesLogix, Raritan, Borderware, and very distressing Symantec (NortonWorks).That may explain why Symantec saids this only qualifies as Dialerware/Nusianceware.



If you understand the direction this is taking,from my perspective this whole Alyon Technologies, Inc. (censored) has an association to the Top Internet Technologies Companies in America.



How does Huberfeld connect to all this you might be asking? From earlier in this report is the following:



"On July 22, 1997, Incomnet was named in a lawsuit, JAMES A. , BELTZ, ET. AL. V. SAMUEL D. SCHWARTZ, RITA SCHWARTZ, STEPHEN A. , CASWELL, JOEL W. GREENBERG, INCOMNET, INC., DAVID BODNER AND MURRAY HUBERFELD, Case No. 97-1678 (MJD/AJB), in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota." Good old' Murray Huberfeld is right in there.



This is Big Business as usual, (censored) right down to the core. Hurray for Capitalism! This is how Alyon Technologies can be so evasive. They have partners in questionable places and positions.



Welcome to the New World Order. Oh by the way, what did you want with that pastrami on rye?



I am not giving up. Alyon Technologies, Inc. are Evildoers, and Mean-spirited folk. It looks like Microsoft, HP/Compaq and Symantec are Sleeping with the Enemy plus being partners to Kosher renegades.

Dear Gregory-



I have read your e-mail correspondence with Archbishop Myers and he asked for my input. I can see why you are so discouraged with Alyon Technologies in Secaucus. I feel like you, that even though adult content material is permissible by law, it is reprehensible that this website puts a self opening Trojan horse type virus into computers and allows anyone to view their objectionable material without proper identification.



Unfortunately, because it is not against the law, there is little we can do to stop this type of exploitation of our children. It is important, however, to continue to apply pressure to our legislators to pass legislation that will outlaw pornography on the web. In the meantime, I have asked our computer expert for some ideas on how you can avoid this problem in the future.



First, a program that will effectively stop the majority of pop-up ads, which it seems this originated from, is called STOP-POPS. It only works with MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER not NETSCAPE or other web-browsers. This will stop most pop-up ads while surfing the web. Information on STOP POPS can be found at the following web site: http://www.stoppops.com/index.php.



In programs such as KAZAA, this probably will not work. Since Kazaa is a PROGRAM, content within can be sent by the PROGRAM PROVIDER. Therefore, I would not recommend unsupervised children use it. Any internet-connected computer needs anti-virus software installed and running. Additionally this software must be manually updated on a regular basis to ensure complete effectiveness. I highly recommend Symantec's NORTON ANTI-VIRUS, retail approximately $40. Information, as well as trial versions are available at: http//www.symantec.com/nav/nav9xnt . Internet security solutions can be a daunting subject for beginners. SAFE SURF, a rating organization, offers lots of useful information at their home page: http://www.safesurf.com/ as well as specific pop-up information at: http//www.safesurf.com/newsletter/

I hope that you will find this information helpful. God bless, Msgr. Richard M. McGuinness, Director, Respect Life Office

Thank you, Gregory of Redding, CA

AUTHOR: Walter - (U.S.A.)

First, let me offer my sincere thanks and appreciation for all the research you have performed and shared with your fellow victims.



I would humbly like to call to your attention that alyon's violation of COPA is even more blatant and severe than you wrote... taken in light of David Cheek's television appearance and his failure to avoid having his demonstration-computer accept the alyon-malware-download, this now indicates that the violation of COPA is very severe, since a minor child could easily have been a victim of alyon in the exact same manner as David Cheek. This is a much more serious turn of events.

Subject: Alyon Technologies





Mr. Consumer,



I am Det. D.W. Cheek with the Gwinnett County Police Department and I am responding to the e-mail inquiry you sent to District Attorney Danny Porter concerning Alyon Technologies.



After conducting an investigation into the activities of Alyon, it was determined that USCI (a separate business entity) had contracted with Alyon to process the billing for the company. In addition they provided customer service and collection functions. As you know, Alyon Technologies is located in Secacus New Jersey. The appropriate agency for investigating this problem is the New Jersey Attorney General's Office, Division of Consumer Affaires, Office of Consumer Protection. You may contact them at (973) 504-6200 or advise any interested party to visit their website:

Please contact me if you have any further questions.



Sincerely,



Det. D.W. Cheek

Gwinnett County Police Department

Alyon Technologies,Inc., USCI, Inc., and Telecom, the company billing all us victims are at the same address. The SEC in a letter to me said Alyon Technologies was a private company held by Tina Whitfield located at 5555 Triangle Parkway, Waterford Ctr., Ga. 30092. How could that be if Tina Whitfield is the controller of USCI? AKA Alyon .. Because you are doing one business under more than one Business name!



***********************<



Alyon is trying to seperate themselves from the billing company. More deception...





As a victim / turned consumer advocate I contacted Alyon Technologies, Inc. numerous times and they blamed me for the charges. Never once did they say they were not the company that did this.



A spokesperson for Alyon Technologies said the only way this software would download was if someone here hit the ACCEPT button. Not true! In fact they are outright (censored). Detective Dave Cheek had it happen to him during an interview with Jim Strickland of WSBTV Atlanta, Georgia. This is on the video that can be accessed by clicking on the link below this paragraph.

Alyon got caught on tape at Gwinnett County Police Department in Georgia, where the cameras were rolling and Alyon automatically took over Detective David Cheek's computer, ..anyone surprised?

During one of my many calls to Alyon, they also said ..it was okay for my child to look at Pornography until it cost me money. I never said anything to them about any children.



BILLING COMPANY CHARGING YOU HAS THE SAME OFFICERS AS ALYON !!!

Alyon is now claiming it is not their fault that; some other company is doing it. Excuse me what other company? Could Alyon Technologies, Inc. be trying to tell me that their Left hand doesn't know what their Right hand is doing?



Alyon Technologies, USCI, Inc. and Telecom are at the same address with the same officers/owners, sleeping with one another. That just does not fly Alyon Technologies!



The SEC in a letter to me said Alyon Technologies was a private company held by Tina Whitfield located at 5555 Triangle Parkway, Waterford Ctr., Ga. 30092. How could that be if Tina Whitfield is the controller of USCI? Because you are doing one business under more than one Business name!



In each conversation with Alyon Technologies I asked what could do this'? They said someone in my home prompted their software to download. Then they went on to say I had to have been aware that their (emphasizing they said THEIR software, not someone else's) software was going to install. Who or what are they talking about? I did not know that the software was downloading. I did not know it would put Dialerware into my computer changing Critical Microsoft settings.



Alyon Technologies, Inc. in my opinion, you knew when you started this (censored) what you were doing. You are the people that sent the bill. You are one in the same company, and passing off the blame to the billing company WILL NOT WORK!



You just did not expect this kind of a result, did you?. I hope Law Enforcement gets you-ALL and puts your butts in a Federal Prison to make License Plates and keep you away from computers for life.

Gwinnett County Detective David Cheek forced to admit Alyon Technologies, Inc. was able to install their software into his computer

Internet Pornography



http://www.wsbtv.com/index.html?refresh=1200



According to http://www.WSBtv.com Channel 2 Action News Reporter Jim Strickland of Atlanta, Georgia Alyon Technologies, Inc. of Norcross Georgia is downloading Pornographic material and Dialerware without the permission of the user.





Det Cheek



Alyon Technologies' (providers of Adult content material) Stephane Toubol of Secaucus, NJ declined an interview, but said the consumer had to agree to terms before the Adult content' download. Alyon Technologies said they stood by their software.



Channel 2 News said Rip-off Report.com shows hundreds of complaints.



Georgia Gwinnett County Detective David T. Cheek although first denying he was able to recreate the same pop-up pornographic material download as other complaintants had, luckily, the cameras were rolling while he was being interviewed by Reporter Jim Strickland. For some reason it appeared like the detective did not want to reaveal this?



The bottom line it can download without your permission.



A company called USCI does the billing for Alyon.



Many consumers are complaining after receiving unwanted adult pop-up ads that in many instances contained sexually explicit content.



Internet Security Systems spokesperson says if you are not running the most recent version of Microsoft Internet Explorer you are at risk.
