Epayment Solutions Inc. is just another of the numerous scam websites that has been set up to form a front for a money laundering job advertisement. (The identical job was posted by the Calisto Trading Inc., Reynolds Investment, & Simple Investments fraudsters and others). It's a bit slicker than most but at the end of the day its function is to con you into believing that they are a legitimate company when the evidence clearly demonstrates that they are crooks. It's an identical scam to Emarket Solutions Inc., Legal Operations Inc., Secure Operations Inc. and the Oranta Group Inc. frauds using the same host and nameservers.

This fraudster should not be confused with a legitimate company of the same or similar name - the above website graphics and the included money laundering job clearly identify the fake website and these fraudsters.

Epayment Solutions Inc. : Evidence of Criminal Fraud

i) Epayment Solutions Inc. claim on their website "The company was set up in 1990 in New York, the USA by three enthusiasts having financial education", but the criminal's domain epayment-solutions.cn was only registered with Bizcn.com on 08-Jan-2008

ii) A Google search shows no internet presence at all for Epayment Solutions Inc. apart from as spammers and scammers. They are also not listed at the UK Companies House or the UK Financial Services Authority which they would have to be to be able to legally trade in the UK - they are undoubtedly a bogus company.

iii) This scam is related to the Calisto Trading Inc. scam among others & is identical to the Emarket Solutions Inc.. Oranta Group Inc., Legal Operations Inc. & Secure Operations Inc. scams - it even has the same contact details for all the different companies:

iv) European Contact Details (copied from their website):
EUROPE, United Kingdom (Iceland, Republic of Ireland)
Street address: 81 holland road
City: london
State: london
Zip: nw105at
Country: United Kingdom
Director: Johnathan Carter

The above address is actually listed in UK Companies House as the registered address of a company called HONEY'S DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION LIMITED (Company No. 05416580). In other words it's a fake address as undoubtedly are all their others. It's also the same address used for the Calisto Trading Inc. fraud and others.

v) The limited registrar whois data for the domain
epayment-solutions.cn is quite obviously false.

vi) They use criminal registered nameservers, (ns1.www-yahoo.biz
& ns1.www-news.biz), that on the face of it appear to be something to do with Yahoo & news.biz, but do not be fooled - the domain www-yahoo.biz & www-news.biz have been registered by the criminal with Public Domain Registry, & Estdomains by the same Michelle Fischer, (who appears in many others of this fraudsters registrations), also using obviously false whois data in an attempt to fraudulently impersonate a Yahoo network. In fact www-yahoo.biz has now been suspended.

vii) Here is the obvious money laundering position of "CHECKS PROCESSING MANAGER" posted on their website:


CHECKS PROCESSING MANAGER
The vacancy is valid for US residents only

Location: USA, statewide
Status: Opened
Employee Type: Part-Time Employee

Cheques Processing Manager is responsible for receiving and processing of cheques from participants of deals and further transfer of money in accordance with the specified method. The detailed operational scheme is available at request.

Requirements: Benefits of working for our company:
In other words, just your average money laundering mule position.

viii) No legitimate company is going to spamvertise among the untrained, inexperienced and uncertified general population for a "CHECKS PROCESSING MANAGER" acting as a criminal money transfer agent

ix) The identical illegal job was posted by the Reynolds Investment, Calisto Trading Inc.
Emarket Solutions Inc.. Oranta Group Inc., Legal Operations Inc. & Secure Operations Inc. fraudsters.

x) More details of the money mule function from the criminal's website:
