I refused to post payment bcz not only did Onyum smell fishy but their attitude is unprofessional as well.
They didn't read my post bcz they're first bid was something like "We've read your post and we can provide your needs, sample pages, contact forms etc."  WOW.  My post is about a business logo and that's it. No websites building services. Keep reading bcz it gets even worse. They direct you to their website and to their "FAQ" page.. They say they are from the US but their IP address points to a UK server.

The IP address of is
The IP address is assigned to Great Britain (UK)

Their domain is registered through GoDaddy with private whois. So far no real identity established. I keep ignoring everything and carry on with the deal. [continued below]....
..... After exchanging a few tickets regarding file type to be received etc. I was sent to this site to make a payment:
Visit Payoneer's wiki and it's a legit company. However, they cater mostly to Russian and Asian countries. It also does not require a bank account for you to accept money (perfect for scammers!)
I was asked by Onyum staff (Lynne) to use this email for payment:
If you would visit it points to a single page stating that mywebstarsinc is in  Wyoming, USA. Disregard all the typos on that page and just trace the domain and guess what.. another UK server.
The IP address of is
The IP address is assigned to Great Britain (UK).
The site has an badge that sends you to a reseller account with an address in Beaverton, OR! Didn't they say they were from Wyoming?! Riiight!

I replied to the ticket by saying that I refuse to use that payment method and would need to stick to more known companies like Paypal. Lynne replied to say that Payoneer is a big company and that they do not accept Paypal. Keep in mind that you don't need to provide a bank account to use Payoneer which means no identity to be traced.
Onyum's website has no phone number or address. They have placed a TM sign on Onyum. I asked for their company's tax/license number and that's where I got blocked from their site. They didn't want me to copy anything but I have Fraps on all the time. I took screenshots of everything and extracted a pdf copy of the tickets before I closed/refreshed the page using a firefox addon.
