That guy is absolutely horrible. I’m talking about the proprietor of Blue Systems International, he goes by Michael Joseph and Michael Johnson, his real name is Youssef Maged. I hired him for a simple background check on a person (computer records only). 
He got me to pay him in advance, so I sent him a check. On the following day after my check cleared the bank he told me that he had only received it and still had not deposited it. Then I couldn’t get a hold of him for about two weeks. Then, after several emails from me he set a time to talk with me on Skype and didn't show up. Another week later he still wouldn’t turn in the background report. In the mean time, I wrote to the California regulator in charge of private investigators. In response, he threatened to contact the wife of the person I’m trying to investigate and disclose to her that I hired a private investigator to investigate her husband. 
I demanded several times that he either return the money or turn in the report, which he said he had at least 10 days ago. When I emailed him that I was going to write a bad review on him, he threatened to sue me.

#1 Consumer Comment

He will take your MONEY!

AUTHOR: Sentinel - ()

This company will not investigate anything for you.  They will charge you big money and then give you an address report which you could have obtained yourself for about $20.  The lead investigator will try have a few phone calls with you to try claim he was investing time in the investigation.  However, he will just take your money and give you nothing.  Just look at the other reports about this firm in the internet.

He also uses Magged Youssef and Michael Johnson as aliases.  He is registered in California as Magged M. Youssef.

Changed name from Blue Systems International to Private Investigator Blue Systems.

AUTHOR: nickl - ()

After negative reviews, the guy changed the name of his business from Blue Systems International to Private Investigator Blue Systems. On other websites, he uses Blue Systems Investigations.

However, his PI license is issued under "Blue Systems International":

8 months later he files a baloney response

AUTHOR: nickl - ()

8 months have gone by and I all but forgot about this whole issue with that clown. But out of nowere, I got an email from the BBB in California saying that Youssef Maged (aka Michael Joseph aka Michael Yousef aka Maged Youssef aka Michael Johnson aka Mike Joseph aka Mike Johnson aka MJ aka Blue Systems Internationa aka Private Investigator Blue Systems) filed a response to my old report about the rip off he conducted back in March of 2014 so I couldn't resist filing my response to his response. Here it is. 

Youssef Maged, a self-proclaimed "honest muslim" and the woebegone proprietor of Blue Systems International, provided a totally different explanation to one Ms. Abby Boxwell, a staffer at the California Dept. of Consumer Affairs (the licensing agency for private investigators) 8 months ago when this issue of him accepting my money and not providing any services first came up. At that time, he claimed to have provided "consulting" services which I had never ordered, nor received. In his made up, bogus invoice sent to her, he explained his services as "Consultation, Quantity: 2, Rate: $75, Amount: $150" and he also claimed to have provided a background report on the subject but in reality he only sent a useless list of former addresses of the subject's wife, which I did not need and never asked for.

In his childish and silly explanation he claims that I tried to investigate "an American subject in order to blackmail and for a possible hit". Sounds like a line from an old spy movie. I'd like to know how he came to this conclusion. In fact, the subject is a Russian and American citizen. To the best of my knowledge, it is not against the law to hire private investigators to conduct the investigation that I wanted him to conduct. Even if it were, he should've simply refused it without accepting any money. He claims to have reported me to the LA FBI and says "you are more than welcome to verify". Yes, I'd like to verify that! What is the name, office phone number, the extension of the FBI agent that he reported me to, and the case or reference number? (central office number posted on the FBI website with extension, not bogus cell phone or internet numbers, please)

Beware of this crook! Before he got my money he described himself as an "honest muslim" and he practically swore in the name of Allah that he would get me the background report that I needed. After my check cleared, he disappeared and later claimed that my request was "illegal" so he gets to keep the money and doesn't have to do any work.

Fraud PI: Blue Systems International / Youssef Maged / Michael Joseph

AUTHOR: Nick - ()

I hired Youssef Maged / Blue Systems International for a background report on a person. He wanted me to pay him in advance and refused to accept a credit card so I sent him a check for $250. Once he received the payment he stopped answering my phone calls and emails. After about two weeks without hearing from him and after many attempts to contact him, I filed a complaint to the California Department of Consumer Affairs / Bureau of Security and Investigative Services, the agency that licensed him as a private investigator. In response, he presented them an “invoice” in which he claimed to have spoken with me more 15 times and billed me $150 for those conversations (I’ll try to attach it). Also, in that invoice he claimed to have provided some report to me (which I never received) and charged me another $150 for that report, so the total amount of the supposed invoice was $300. His original quote was $250. I guess, with that invoice, he wanted to say that I still owed him $50. I received no service of any kind from him. Also, in his email response to them he claimed that I'd made “several illegal requests that he refused to process”. Also, he lied to them that I refused to meet with him in person and present him my ID which he'd never actually requested before or after his acceptance of the assignment. He only wanted me to email him my ID which I did. In any case, if any of his claims were true, shouldn’t he have just refused the assignment or refunded my money? So, beware!
