Scam Scam. Take care IT companies / Freelancers from www.bysfoundation.com
BEWARE IT COMPANIES  / FREELANCER ANOTHER SCAM“BUILD YOUR SYSTEMS PVT. LTD.” / BYSERP / LANCERSPACE.COM ARE FRAUD

Dear All,

The intention of TRIMANTRA SOFTWARE SOLUTION LLP is to aware you about possible scam with IT COMPANIES/ FREELANCERS. Please refer below case in details.If you are contacted by www.byserp.com, www.bysfoundation.com, Build Your System Pvt. Ltd. through any channel, please don’t make any financial transaction with them.

This company post a high budget projects (more than USD 30K) on various open market portal and force them to use www.lancerspace.com (which is another scam) to bid on their project. They convince service provider that they would pay 25% on advance and insist service provider to pay USD 1000 as security deposit either using paypal or bank etc. They took away this deposit amount and never gives your project.
 
Please refer this case study…

A website development project was posted on reputed open market portal.We bid on this project.
The project was cancelled on that portal and Buyer (Amit Lama) has contacted us directly from our website.The buyer has insists us to use – www.lancerspace.com and asked us to deposit USD 1000 as Guarantee deposit against the project budget of USD 30,000. We were communicated that as soon as we pay USD 1000 deposit they would release 25% of USD 30,000.We have checked the company credential before making security deposit. In the specification provided by them they have mentioned their company name as “Build Your System Pvt. Ltd.” and website : http://www.bysfoundation.com

Though the company is in India and we doubt that why the buyer wants to pay us in USD rather than Indian currency.

We sent our representative to their India office located at – (P-121, Lake Town, Block B, Ground Floor, Near VIP Sweets, Kolkata, India 700089). We surprised to know that there is no such company located at the address provided on their website.

There were about 29 bids have been posted and I think that Amit Lama must have contacted all of them and insist to make Guaranteed Payment through – www.lancerspace.com. It may possible that “lancerspace” also owned by the same person.

We have requested Amit Lama to present “Certification of Incorporation” and PAN card. After that he has not contact us anymore. Thank God we save USD 1000.

Here are the contact details of the person.

    If you check the whois records of both companies then they are registered on

    Creation Date: 07 Jun & 11 June 11
    with expiration Date: 07 Jun 12 & 11 June 12

    So even domains are kind of fake I think.
    Beware jumping in this market :)

    Exactly the same thing happened to us. Of course we didn’t pay $1K because the credentials on his website are all fake (see “credibility” tab).

    1) Certificate of Incorporation fake/unreadable
    2) ISO 9001 really belongs to http://www.ishikatech.com (compare the images! :)
    3) Microsoft and IBM partner IDs are fake

    Sorry to say the I have become a victim to this scam.

    Only if I had researched a bit more on this company we should have been saved from paying them $1000.

    Can’t we do something about this company and about LancerSpace?

    Hi Rakesh,

    It’s a great initiative.

    I would appeal all victims to join Rakesh Thakor. He has already posted his contact details (Cell +91 8866818887 or Office Phone : 07940327195).

    There might be many victims other than on this blog as well. So, it’s our moral responsibility to prevent other to be victim as well.

    Rakesh, though we are not a victim, we would happy help you in case you need.

    All the best !!

    Hello,

    I request all the victims to send email to CBI cyber crime department.

    We have send email to lodge complain to CBI Cyber crime reporting on below email addresses as per the link http://cbi.nic.in/contact.php.

    speou9del@cbi.gov.in
    hobbsfdel@cbi.gov.in

    Hello Sir,

    I would like to lodge one complain against one group running Scam in India. They known as ATM Agro Group (atmagrogroup.com) and Lancerspace.com, and they have cheated us (Many Others as well) in following way.

    1. They post high budget software development work/project on reputed sites like freelancer.com
    2. Once bidders(software developers like us) on freelancer.com bids on that project
    3. They directly contact the bidders via email and asks to deposit $1000 as security deposit on lancerspace.com
    4. Once developer like us deposits the security deposit money, they disappear.

    As above we also have deposited 1000 USD in lancerspace.com account and now they (atm agro and lancerspace.com both) are not replying us.

    After researching bit on internet we have noticed that these companies are fraud and running scam in india. They have cheated many software developers / freelancers / companies which you can find in below links.

    Account Holder: AMIT LAMA
    Bank Account Number: 910010028349041
    Bank Name: AXIS BANK
    IFSC Code: UTIB0000775

    I really appreciate Trimantra software solutions for taking up this task on hand and preventing loss to freelancers/IT companies. Not revealing my name right now as I m trying to grab him by his collar this time

    Every one please be aware. The company (previously Lancerspace.com/www.byserp.com, http://www.bysfoundation.com/ has changed name to vibgyorsys.com/ freelancersea.com) has entered the market again with same modes operandy. Mr. Amit Lama gives project development work of vibgyorsys.com of USD 25K and asks for depositing the escrow amt of USD 1000 to freelancersea.com (which is their own fraud site to grab your money).Then they will ask u to submit cash INR approx arnd 50K+
    in below bank account

    Account Holder: AMIT LAMA
    Bank Account Number: 910010028349041
    Bank Name: AXIS BANK
    IFSC Code: UTIB0000775

    Once u will pay this amount they will not respond and u will loose all your money Just be careful and remain away. No one Pays more then you deserve… if some one is, then there’s something big coming behind it…Tc every one

    I was became a victim yesterday, I transferred to freelancersea.com and escrowed to them (vibgyorsys.com) 500 USD.
    How can I get back OMG!!!! please help me

    1. Trimantra Software Solution LLP

      Hi,

      It’s really sad!

      You can give a try to get your money. However, chances are less.

      1. If you have paid money through your bank via online transfer, you can request you bank to roll-back the transaction by saying that you made that transaction by mistake.

      2. If you have just escrowed the amount and not yet released to the party, you can revert escrow. However chances are very less in this case because – freelancersea.com itself is a bogus I believe.

      Please check whois record of domain.

      3. Complain to nearby police station at earliest. It’s a cyber crime.

      Thanks & Best Regards,

      Bhavin

      I see that on the freelancersea.com website, there is many users who is following his project. I see that the project information which he posted is the same and he assigned to many these users.
      Why he did a work that I can see this is easy to realize he is scam?
      Does anybody have some idea about this? and how can help other users there?
