Our company was contacted by a Mat Napchen with email mnapchen@everything-technology.com in regard to an offer to purchase 75 open box Apple MacBook MD101LL/A for $925 each.  We asked if we could pay with Paypal or other escrow service and we were informed payment would only be accepted via wire transfer.  We asked for trade references and last 2 years on income tax returns in order for us to extend a credit line of $5,000 that would be sufficient to cover a sample purchase.  Mat provided us as reference Shelley Chera at Digital Gadgets.  Digital Gadgets has F rating on BBB.  Also the website for digitalgadgets.com and everything-technology.com consist of only 3 pages that would take 15-30 minutes to create with Wordpress.  We determined conclusively that Mat was attempting to defraud us when we researched a correlation between Everything Technology and Digital Gadgets.  We found via google link below that Digital Gadgets was the original registrant for Everything-Technology.net.

Mat included on his email in the CC field a Michael Gammal with email Michael@everything-technology.com.  A linkedin profile exists for this person.  The profile is bare with 0 connections which further establishes that not only was the website but also this linkedin profile was established by Digital Gadgets in an attempt to deceive us.  Digital Gadgets has numerous complaints against them which has led to an F rating on Better Business Bureau.  Our research shows they are masquerading as other fictitious company names in an attempt to default computer resellers into making wholesale computer upgrades funded with wire transfer.  I feel if I do not report this behavior they will successfully defraud other businesses in the community.  I hope anyone who is contacted by them does their research and finds this article which is intended to save businesses from the $50,000+ loss that would be incurred if they actually engaged in a wire transfer transaction with this business.  I am the owner of Computer Upgrade King LLC and I can be contacted at 800-985-9364 should you wish to discuss this business with me.

Proof of Relationship Between Everything Technology and Digital Gadgets

AUTHOR: Computer Upgrade King LLC - (United States of America)

POSTED: Friday, December 21, 2012
1 day after the posting of this article, the google link provided in the report showing the cached information of Digital Gadgets in the whois for everything-technology.net was lost.  Also, 1 day after the posting, I was contacted by an attorney with thread of law suit.  Provided below is clear evidence of sister company or alias relationship between Everything Technology and Digital Gadgets.  Notice that the r99zk8bg96f@networksolutionsprivateregistration.com email address for the administrative contact is the same for all 3 domains (everything-technology.net, everything-technology.com, and digitalgadgets.com).  Also, notice that if you search this email address on google, there are only 4 results and 3 of which mention Digital Gadgets.  This is proof that all 3 domains belong to the same Network Solutions hosting account and therefore there is a sister company or alias relationship between them.  In case the emails are changed, below is a screenshot taken as of 3:30pm EST 12/21:
Also, below is a copy of the original email from Mat in which he falsely stated "As for our trade references, please contact Shelley Chera 646-597-4685 at Digital Gadgets LLC they are our biggest customer and have been for the last 2 years."

If you are with Digital Gadgets, then please provide trade reference evidence to me that you have engaged in wire transfer transactions with other businesses before and the customer was satisfied.  I will then update this report to show that the evidence checks out and that your company can likely be trusted for wire transfer pre-payment.  Mat's act of dishonesty coupled with the website and linkedin profile that appeared to be created for show, provides strong evidence of possible fraudulent activity for which our readers have a right to know.  Digital Gadgets sells on Amazon and has good reviews from customer.  As their customer feedback shows, they can be trusted for Amazon purchases.  However, the question remains why was Mat dishonest and what are Digital Gadget's true intentions in contacting other resellers and offering wholesale deals with requirement of wire transfer prepayment.  I had asked Mat if I could purchase on Amazon or by Paypal and I was told that only wire would be accepted.  Given that Mat was not willing to accept my order through Amazon and the fact that he was untruthful in his relationship with Digital Gadgets, I was and still am very much convinced that his intentions were to commit fraud.  As my company was contacted by Mat unsolicited, I feel I was the target of such fraud and I have a right to share the facts as I do not wish for Digital Gadgets to successfully defraud any companies or individuals.  I am very much willing to share additional facts that would clear the good name of Digital Gadgets in the event that Mat provides valid trade references involving wire transfer prepayment as my intentions are only to state the facts so that potential online fraud is reported.  I hope that you will not pursue this matter further with your attorney in litigation but instead will respond to this report with facts that show your company can be trusted in sending wire transfer prepayment.
