Every bit of the evidence, example, illustrations, etc. presented here of possible or alleged fraud came from simple Google research, that anybody could have done for themselves.
I freely admit that I have the advantage of being a polyglot... that is, I read multiple languages, including Chinese, Spanish, and of course, English. However, there's always Google Translate. You just have to know not to rely on them.
Fraudsters generally have a history of failures or sanctions by the law. And those histories are now online to be searched, if not by Google, then by some official records search facility offered by the government.
And very often, you just have to connect the dots.
In a case that spanned across the US, Janamjot Singh Sohdi, ran a ponzi scheme called Elite Financial Services from 2005 to 2011. He told people he can manage their money to pay handsome returns, but what he really did is to pay return to early joiners with money from the late joiners. He was finally caught in Fresno California, but not before stealing 2.4 million dollars.
Yet the warning signs had been there.
- He went by multiple names, such as Jimmy Singh, or Jimmy Sohdi
- His investment broker license was revoked in 2005
- He was permanently disbarred from New York Stock Exchange in 2006
- He was issued a "cease and desist" in California 2009 as any sort of investment advisor
Why do people not use Google? Are they afraid of what they will find?
What about WCM777? Warning signs that been there all along.
