Sven Slootweg Sven Slootweg aka ORGANIZED CRIME PLACED ON FBI WATCHLIST AND KLPD, Korps Landelijke Politie Diensten - INVOLVED IN ORGANIZED CRIME ONLINE. Dordrecht , Other
Cryto.net and anonnews.org are of course owned by Joepie91 AKA Sven Slootweg. He has changed the registration of anonnews to claim that the domain is owned by Pirate Bay co-founder Gottfrid Swartholm. Slootweg also changed the domain registration of encyclopediadramatica.ch to claim it is owned by Ryan Cleary, who is currently awaiting trial In England.  Last October, Sven Slootweg changed the registrar records to indicate that the new owner was Ryan Cleary. Speculation leads to the possibility that representatives of Cleary are responsible for deleting the nameservers from the records, since he agreed to avoid using the internet on condition of his release from jail while he awaits trial on multiple charges. Slootweg currently runs Encyclopedia Dramatica Se.  The new registration a sweden registration along with Brian Zaiger.  This is a Hate Site and a front for illegal activity by the organized crime group ( anonymous.) The site is involved in rackateering and money extortion, slander, defamation and invasion of privacy.   Sven Slootweg is on the United States FBI watchlist as well as  KLPD, Korps Landelijke Politie Diensten for his affiliation and membership in the criminal organization anonymous. Dutch authorities in AIVD are watching him. On May 2 2012, a US Federal indictment was made public outlining computer crime-related charges against alleged Lulzsec members Jeremy Hammond of the US, Donncha O'Cearrbhail and Darren Martyn of Ireland, and Jake Davis and Ryan Ackroyd of Britain. Of particular interest is the mention of an anonymous, unindicted co-conspirator on page 23. The indictment itself can be found at Cryptome. In related news, MLT, an unnamed 17 year-old member of TeaMp0isoN from Newcastle was arrested by local police on May 9 on suspicion of offenses under the Computer Misuse Act. The arrested teen was described by Scotland Yard as being the spokesperson of TeamPoison. He has been taken to a local police station for interview. Computer equipment has been seized and is undergoing a detailed forensic examination, the statement read. If this paste is to be believed, MLT is a customer of srsvps, a business run by the principals behind encyclopediadramatica.se. The supposedly bullet proof, offshore srsvps is not much protection if one's computers, or the home computers of one's co-conspirators, are seized. Sven Slootweg for his affiliation is currently under investigation pending charges. A recent comment by Sven Slootweg on his twitter feed.  I never thought I would say it but ANON is becoming like a TV: A million channels and nothing to do.   This statement would indicate that Sven Slootweg realizes the close scrutiny of the FBI and AIVD. The outcome of the investigation could lead to Sven Slootweg being extradited. LulzSec has since distanced itself from the teenager, using a Twitter account to claim the British police were 'desperate' and that they had arrested 'someone who is, at best, mildly associated with us.' Accused: Alleged member of LulzSec Sven Slootweg   Cleary is connected with the group. 'Depends on how you look at it,' he continued. 'You can say he's one of the people that ran it, you can say he's a middleman. Depends on how you look at it. I think he's a middleman.' TeamPoison yesterday upped its attacks on users it believes are connected to LulzSec by defacing the website of Sven Slootweg. Slootweg, also known as Joepie. Sven Slootweg was and is a member of LulzSec and the organized crime group anonymous. Team Poisons threats come just days after another hacking group, named Team Web Ninjas posted what they claimed where names, addresses, phone numbers and even pictures of what it considered LulzSec members. The group claimed that Sabu, a 34-year-old Brazillian, was the group's leader. They claimed to have full details but did not publish them. They also claimed that Slootweg was a member, alongside freelance journalist Barret Brown and a member of the U.S. Marines named Casey Gardiner. Team Poison are closely affiliated to the 'Mujahdeen Hacking Unit',  which attacked Facebook in December 2010 - 2011. They also have connections with the 'Pakistan Cyber Army'. Both groups are said to be anti-U.S., anti-Israel and anti-India. This is why there is so much Jewish Hate on his current website Sven Slootweg runs with Brian Zaiger.  Encyclopedia Dramatica Se.  * Note the site is still up as a Swedish Domain name now.

Seriously Organized Andria Gandrud/BerkeWendy Anderson/FloodAndrew HavensNicola Havens Seriously Organized Crime is More Like It Bloomington Minnesota
This company has been in a manipulative con artist scheme to steal from their clients and decieve them into paying a rediculous price for lousy organizing service for a long time and have finally been caught although only got a very minor penalty. Nikki Havens was so dirty with one of her clients a number of her employees called the police on her despite them all being in on this con job.Nikki Havens and Andria Gandrud are literally the creepiest, most decieving, and manipulative people I have ever met in my life. The thought now that I got rid of them for only a little over $4000 and several stolen items almost makes me feel greatful now compared to what happened to other clients. Don't beleive their Star Tribune Article Hoarding a Clean Start http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/69384322.html. It is a total lie. It was published before Nikki exposed her true colors to the client Jeanne Leier, the client they were doing the article on.She stole priceless items from the client and she was going to call the police and sue Nikki, but because Andria rescued some of her most emotional possesions from Nikki she decided to let it all go because she beleives in karma, what goes around comes around.Their latest known client and victim was Jean Larson. She was completely fleeced of everything of value: http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/story/23129862/burnsville-hoarder-house-cleaner-charged-with-felony-theft. They also stole an estimated $7000-$8000 in cash.Nikki is currently not allowed in houses for two years and is under 24 hour survelience, but she is still leaving her website active and it is not clear whether she can or cannot still hire other workers to do her bidding for her.In two years she has intentions of continuing this business. In the mean time I am trying to gather up as much evidence as I can like other client's negative experiences with them and evidence of them stealing from our home to do a small claims court hearing or perhaps a class action lawsuit so we can stop her business, refund clients of their money, close her business for good and maybe even get her some jail time.

Platinum Online Group-SavingPays98 Organized Crime Internet, Internet
On June 14, 2011, Platinum Online Group took it upon themselves to take $99. 49 from my checking account creating a check # for themselves of zero whoever heard of such. I surely have not. Then lied about me giving them consent.  No way and for what product. I just so happen to be checking my account on Saturday, June 16, before I went shopping to see what my funds looked like and this is when I notice the transaction. I said to myself oh heck naw!, now way hosea. I was very furious and upset.  *EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back into your bank account that someone wrongfully takes it from you!    EDitor's Suggestions on how to et your money back! HERE IS WHAT RIP-OFF REPORT SUGGESTS YOU DO: Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, or as soon as you know about the charge, don't delay, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish to file a dispute, and demand that they assist you in accordance with Federal Regulation E. According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: we could not do anything for you or you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days. If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges. Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off Report.com. And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent! DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER! Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get. And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state. Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the charge(s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the truth. If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics should still work. The bank can easily fax or mail to you the Federal Regulation E dispute form.

Cash Call Prompt Recovery Service, Inc unusual rip-off just like organized crime Twinsburg, Ohio
I got a loan from Cash Call in the year 2006 or 2007.  The loan was for $1500 dollars.  There was a 3 month period to pay back the money on a low interest rate, which I missed.  Now I had to pay back a 98% interest rate.  I begin paying back on time after the three month period.  I thought after paying back about $8000 dollars, that would be enough. But no!  I am still paying these people.  I am so tired of them.  Cash Call really seems like a 'legal organized crime mob', to me.  Why do the credit bureau seems to over looking these kind of people ripping off honest hardworking consumers?  Can anyone confront this kind of scam?

To cancel, call us at (877) 631-1669, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.[END]Pfff...  DO NOT DEAL WITH THESE PEOPLE, YOU WILL LOSE!For me, it all began as a $4.95 14 day trial. The 14 days start as soon as you pay. How does the 4 days in the mail count as part of your trial? This is the where fraud begins. You will find upon opening the box a second product included, whether you order it or not, doubling your exposure. I did not order it but, they sent it. They will and do bill you on the 14th day ($86.95 + $89.95 + $176.90). Reducing the trial again to now be at best a 9 day trial. Hmm... But, the fraud continues. I did call the 14th day but, earlier in the day the $176.90 had already been charged to my Bank Card. I was told, you should have called ealier. Once they ship and charge, it's over. They will not accept returns and they will not refund your money. PERIOD. Those who use a 'credit card' may have some hope but, 'debit cards', forget it. All in all, it ain't worth it.This so-called business is nothing less than 'criminal, organized crime.' I don't understand how they can continue... It's a SCAM!

BRITMOVIEBRITMOVIE.CO.UK HIDEOUT for PROFESSIONAL PIRATERS of DVDs Internet
BritMovie is run by Steve Crook (aptly named) AKA DB7. While having excellent film commentary, it is nonetheless a shell company for commercial DVD piraters who find their clientele amongst the hundreds of sincere movie buffs and film collectors who post there. Chief amongst these villains is APHRA, whose real name is Veronica Hitchcock. Only her bank manager and shrink know why a rich establishment dowager like her needs to sully her reputation by selling at usurious prices pirated DVDs. She is a personal friend of Steve Crooks as they and others run a website about Powell and Pressburger. APHRA is not alone as a big time operator. There is also James Heath AKA Laura1 and ORPHEUM and San Franciscos Sid Bloomberg AKA GREBMOOLB and dozens more. Why the UK authorities have not investigated this website is anyones guess. But honest collectors should avoid joining this website and current honest members should quit it. Many have done so already and have formed rival websites. I have seen the above and confirm it is true. I have since mended my ways and gone to the authorities to confess. James **** AKA LAURA1 James **** BangkokThailand

Ultragreat.com Fraud Fuzhou, Internet
They the most helpful bunch of thieves you can find. I bought an Iphone 4s for a customer thru them 06 February 2012. While the item was being shipped. I was happy as I had good communication with them. They responded immediately and were extremely helpful with all my queries. When I placed another order before receiving the first order, I paid via western union ( as I had to first order for $1000 before I could use my paypal, I felt it very strange but each company has its own set of rules, and I wanted the item for my customer so I obliged) When I finished paid I noticed for a whole week the item was being processed but on the first item a day after confirmation of payment, I saw status being handled and later the next day being shipped. The first item was in South Africa in 4 days, but stuck with customs courier service for 2 weeks. Ultragreat could not supply me the telephone numbers of EMS Courier Service. Now the second phone was still showing me processing. I contacted them via their support help line for 5 consecutive days and everyday they told me that, 'Accounting was ill he was in hospital', and that my item would be processed in 3 day. I asked them is there only one accounting, they told me yes. I carried on calling till they told me that I should rather just withdraw the money again as no one collected the money therefore it was showing processing. And thats what I did but that was not before W/U deducted $37 for withdrawing the money. I immediately contacted them they told me that, they would compensate me with coupons. i told them as long as they know they can keep it in my account as I want to be a good buyer. They told me its acceptable. I still asked where is the first parcel. They told me the same thing, I saw on the EMS website that it was in-transit. I contacted all avenues and later got a the right number. Finaly got hold of the customs official, they told me to send the invoice of the purchase and I did that and they despatched the item the next day. My Customer was ecstatic when they told him his parcel has arrived. He paid the customs duty on it. When he opened it he found 3 Ray-ban sunglasses and a Gucci Belt all fake. He contacted me immediately. I was extremely upset. I tried contacting Ultragreat.com since Monday 27 Feb 2012 but i have been unsuccessful.  I have tried every day but they non responsive. They could have told me, if it was there fault sending me wrong package or that it wasn't them and they would investigate. But nothing, sent them emails nothing. I then contacted the Cyber Crimes Unit in Shanghai. They told me that Ultragreat is not even 3 Months old. But they advertising 9 years. they told me that I should have done the 7 point check before buying anything from china. I am extremely upset as now I have to refund my customer, with a loss of $890 all inclusive. Please inform everyone not to deal with ULTRAGREAT.COM I have pic of the parcel with the items in it. Disgusting. Now I have a bad rating from a customer I gave my heart and sweat to satisfy. Please don't deal with Ultragreat..com

You can't request a refund, they won't ship packages that are lost in the mail, and they won't let you speak to anyone except Tier 1 support. Find another supplier.

JustAnswer INTERNET SCAM Internet
On approximately 14 November 2011, I needed a legal answer w.r.t. job retrenchment. I went onto JustAnwer site which I found on Google. It seemed like you could get an instant answer, so I registered. They wanted payment upfront of 247 ZAR, which I paid online via a link on their site. I then received a fax notification  from them saying I can log in at their website as the answer was waiting and free service for a month. On 18 January 2012, I went through my bank statement and saw that they have deducted the sum of 330 ZAR off my bank account on 16 December 2011 and again on 16 January 2012. Any efforts on my part to try and contact them or cancell my subscription, Illegally held by them and not authorised by myself, has been fruitless. They are like phantoms and any e-mail addresses seem to be fake. Enclosed are some contact details I got off a site called computersavvy. I found telephone nos on scamwatch.

Amazon Createspace, Amazon RipOff Under-Report Sales, Internet
here are MANY people claiming Amazon/Createspace are under-reporting sales, and hiding royalties to authors/publishers.  1. amazon provide book sales to third parties, and the sales numbers are Extremely Lower than actual sales (4-10 times). 2. MANY author/publisher complained Amazon/Createspace did not update sales, when author/publisher's friends/family purchased books (informed).   Amazon/Createspace do not think they have to respond to authors/publisher, and if they complain they are banned for life. Sometimes, Amazon/Createspace excused that previous buyer returned books, and they did not report new sales.  This is also underreporting sales:  Amazon/Createspace sells used/returned books via Marketplace, and authors/publishers do not get royalties from sales on Marketplace.  Therefore, Amazon/Createspace makes money either books are returned or not, while author/publisher do not get royalties. 3. I personally have evidence that when there have been sales ranking on Amazon websites, Amazon failed to report any sales.   When I complain, Amazon either report a sale, or neglect.  4. One of my books have ONE SINGLE sales per Createspace's record.  I did not select Extended Distribution Channel (EDC), but there were multiple third parties and Amazon's own Marketplace were selling this book at the same time.   Since I have copy rights,  only Createspace/Amazon can sell my book, and only one copy was sold, there should not MULTIPLE sellers on this book. Two of these sellers were selling the book 2-3 times higher than actual book price.  When I complained to Createspace and Amazon, Createspace's executives office responded I would get royalties when third parties sell.   My concern was why there were MULTIPLE sellers, whom I did not authorize, but Createspace and Amazon have refused to respond on the issue. Then Createspace's executive office ignorantly stated any one can sell my books without my permission?? This shows total ignorance of copyright/distribution laws. Since I complained to Amazon/Createspace's executives, they started retaliation. 5. Some people complained Amazon's legal department that some authors violate copy rights, but Amazon refused to remove higher ranking books (see below), while removing lower ranking books.   We have contacted AMAZON LEGAL DEPARMENT ABOUT THIS and they keep removing the book and these awful people just change the name, make up a new author and sell it again.  http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Delicious-Recipes-Special-ebook/product-reviews/B006EEMEKA/ref=cm_cr_dp_hist_1?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&filterBy=addOneStar

REA REA Rip off jackets Milanoantwerpen Other
I got approached by a Salvatore (Italian) his palen leaving and blabla buying a present for his wife but no money because of taxes! Showed me a nice costme of REA and if i would buy that for 400 i would get 5 jackets for free.....At the end i helped him with 100 he gave me 3 jackets, 2 leathers, 1 daim! It's not really a bad bargain, cos imitation clothes here in antwerp BE from Paul Shark shirts are 25, jeans from Giorgio and beckham and so are about 50! Even in cheap shops with no brand a jacket is like 60! What disturbed me is the way he did it! Any way I think its an italian gang thing that they have a boss who owns a factory in china (or mexico for US folks) and are imitating another brand and are selling them with this pitch talk instead of the regular black circuit! About the fact that they are fake, im not so sure! I think they are same quality as the imitation brands and I have seen even worse quality in those imitations then this REA! I know peops are selling costumes of REA RGA thru well known online second hand providers?! So anyone who asks you the way to the nearest airport for a flight to Milano is warned by this! Like they did rip off the worldcup football from france, they do so with this REA :-) Greets from Antwerp Belgium Serge antwerpenBelgium

RGA REPORTAGE Scam Willows California
My boyfriend's father got scammed today in a small northern CA town. He told him the jackets were very expensive and he just needed some money to make it to the airport to get back to italy. he bought 3 leather jackets and 4 suede ones. He paid cash thankfully. When we went to his house he told us he bought some really expensive jackets and wanted me to find out if they were really expensive or not since he wasn't into the whole expensive name brand things. So his loss was of $300 but at least they didn't have his identity to checking acct # they could of gotten from a check. This is a scam and I feel sorry for the people that go around and do this since they have no way to work for there money. Thats why we shouldn't trust strangers and its just sad that they did this to a nice hard working guy. But karma will eventually come. What goes around comes around.

IBC Bank Bad banking 74017, Oklahoma
IBC bank has to be as corrupt as organized crime. I have called in about my balance and to see what has gone thru my account and their records are always different then what you see on the online banking website. I was just charged with three NSF charges for items that are detailed in my account as being in the positive. You call them and they give you some b.s. run around and some lame story that the computer does the banking. Well if it's doing the banking, then why does IBC need employees there. The will not post items for days, hoping that something will come in and they can b.s your account into the negative.
