I received the following email from Jerome Cornejo. The email address has this profile picture associated with it. Nice beach scene. Pity it is only 70×70 pixels in size.

To: Paul Zagoridis

Dear Paul.

We ask you to delete the full information about the company BSD in the daytime.

Due to the fact that we have not received a response from you on our official letter, we are forced to take corresponding action. For your false accusations against the Company BSD we are forced to file a lawsuit and defend the name of the Company in a court. You will have to answer in a court for the harm done to the company and people who lost their jobs, and also pay millions of dollars for caused damages.

I think he’s claiming to be a lawyer for BSD but it isn’t clear. It just stopped. There is no footer, or signature section with the usual corporate or lawyer guff. And no title, contact details or anything else.

There is a Microsoft Word attachment which could be a payload for all manner of malware. I very gingerly opened it in Google Drive.

No letterhead, names, addresses, phone numbers or other contact details, just text reproduced in full below.

Dear Paul!

We are obliged to inform you that your unreasonable claims and accusations regarding BSD Trade Service Corp activity caused great damage to the Company. The number of negative and false publications on your website impacted the Company’s activity.

All these people suffered from false publications on your website that adversely affected on Company’s reputation and caused financial losses.
 
BSD Trade Service Corp values its reputation and does not carry out any unlawful actions in which it was accused. We work in accordance with all laws and regulations established by Labor and Employment Department of our country. We said about this in a letter that we sent you earlier.
As we explained on the our previous reply letters Bsd provides Bpo services and has nothing to do with financial advisory.

Bsd is proud with the services that it provides,more than that with all the false information that you published on your website there is zero complaints from HQ broker clients at any level and this mean a lot,this mean that HQ broker that is our respectable client is working by the rules and regulations of the financial industry,more than that if there are clients that are not satisfied from HQ services they are more than welcome to withdrawal their capital at any time.

Due to the fact that we have not received a response from you on our official letter, we are forced to take corresponding action. For your false accusations against the Company BSD we are forced to file a lawsuit and defend the name of the Company in a court. You will have to answer in a court for the harm done to the company and we are suing you personally as well for damages and defamation you caused to Bsd worldwide,the value of the damages is millions and you can assure that with our legal team you will pay us all the damages personally.

The management.

I sent the following reply

Dear Jerome

Without Prejudice

I request further and better particulars, specifically

  • the name of your firm,
  • the name of the client you are representing,
  • for the avoidance of doubt, the address of the client,
  • your legal mailing address,
  • your address for service of documents,
  • your telephone number, and
  • your Roll of Attorney’s Number

I am surprised that you contacted me from a gmail email address rather than a professional firm address. Should I infer that you have not received instructions from your client?

I have not received any official letter before this email, other than an unsigned, unattributed and unverifiable message via my contact page claiming to be from “BSD Trade Services Corp. administration” on 15 June 2018 which I addressed at http://wealthesteem.org/official-letter-from-bsd-administration/ as well as in my message via BSD Trade Services Contact page. Given the lack of names, capacity and addresses on this email plus the dubious and unverifiable gmail source, it is not unreasonable to doubt the authenticity of all such messages.

Furthermore, by using the subject “Lawyer Appeal BSD” and threatening legal action you are passing yourself off as a lawyer. Given there is no lawyer called Jerome Cornejo licensed to practice law in either the Philippines or Australia I contend that you are falsely representing yourself as an attorney. Such deceptive trade practices could be the basis of a civil and criminal complaints against you. Of course I could be misinformed and I look forward to receiving confirmation of your bona fides.

However given the allegedly fraudulent business practices of HQ Broker, BSD Trade Services, GWU Marketing Corp, and other individuals and entities in this enterprise, I wonder if you really exist or is this just another email alias (a.k.a. sock puppet) in a web of deceit?

Should you reply with the requested further and better particulars, I will then address the substance of your letter.

BSD Trade Services Closing

I’ve reports that BSD Trade Services is closing. They have told staff that today was their last shift, but have not explicitly said they are closing down.

In honour of the report I’ve been sent a photo of Senior BSD Managers Charles, Niav-Nisim Hashoshan, and Shlomi (Shlomo) Avshalom.

Update 5 July 2018: I’ve received a copy of the Memo from 29 June 2018.

BSD Trade Servies Closing Memo 2018-06-29
BSD Trade Servies Closing Memo 2018-06-29

It reads:

[BSD Letterhead]

CIRCULAR MEMORANDUM

TO: ALL EMPLOYEES

FROM: The Management

SUBJECT: COMPANY CLOSURE/DISSOLUTION

DATE: June 29, 2018

This has reference to the above mentioned matter.

Please be informed after careful deliberation, the Board of Directors and Management have unanimously vote [sic] to dissolve the Corporation and therefore, business operation will officially cease effective on June 29, 2018. Reassured that the Company will comply with the legal requirements under the law for this purpose.

Please be guided accordingly.

[signed]

Admin. Manager

Expect that the BSD operation will reopen at a new location, possibly under a new name and corporate structure. Reports suggest to look in Serbia, Brazil and Barcelona.

According to another source, part of the BSD team has an office in Cebu and are operating from there after the Clark office closure .

A source who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation said GWU has taken over most of the services from BSD, “They moved the customer support and some openers, BPO and IT but not the brokers.”

On a related note, affiliates of the HQBroker scam visit that page at the rate of 1,500 users per hour over the last 48 hours. The server is happily dealing with this traffic. So it is a rather poor DDOS attack. They are mainly using services in Pakistan, India, Vietnam and USA so it really stands out. Hey GWU/BPO Telecom hackers, if you are not scamming in the States, there is no reason for there to be any traffic from USA. Update: The USA traffic vanished after this note. In Total they sent us 110,000 visitors over 3 days 20 hours, then it stopped.

GWU Marketing Corp

GWU Marketing Corp is now stepping up to provide services to HQ Broker.com forex trading scam.

I’ve got names and photos of senior staff uploaded. But I wanted to alert everyone that GWU Marketing Corp is the new name to research.

Do not email them from a personal or work email as they will put you on a marketing list.

It has been reported that many of the senior executives tied to BSD and HQBroker have fled the Philippines and set up shop in Eastern Europe.

If you comment and claim to be from GWU Marketing Corp, please use a real name and work email address.

BSD Trade Services was the business in the Philippines driving the HQBroker scam. It seems the name change game is on.

Official letter from HQBroker

Three hours twenty minutes after sending the Official Letter from BSD Administration, HQ Brokers sent this message with the same subject line.

This is the first time a full name has been used by HQBroker so I’ll ask her for the “official appeal”. This will be interesting.

Subject: Official letter from HQBroker
Date: Sat, Jun 16, 2018 at 12:27 AM

Dear Paul,

Today lawyers of the BSD Company appealed to us regarding material that was published on your website, this material contains information about allegedly connection of BSD Company and our Company HQBroker. Please note that the company BSD has nothing to do with the broker HQBroker.

We ask you to remove in the shortest time all information related to the company BSD. If you do not do this, you will be dealt with BSD attorneys. Please, contact with us for the official appeal.

Official Letter from BSD Administration

I received this message via the Contact page.

I wish I knew who wrote it, but it states no name or capacity beyond “represent”. The [redacted] email address used to post the message is a generic role-based address not usually used for such communication. It doesn’t state the legal entity or address of the entity. That makes it hard to respond. Will the writer please comment below with those details so I can respond?

Ma’am/Sir,

This is an official letter from BSD Trade Services Corp. administration, on behalf of the company I represent, BSD Trade Services Corp., I would like to denounce all claims and allegations the company is receiving from your site. BSD Trade Services Corp. is a BPO operating firm that provides diversified services to various types of industries. Our services include outbound call center for accounts opening financial institutions, customer support that receives inbound calls, digital marketing, and first deposit services. The firms we provide services to include financial institutions as banks, online trading companies, and insurance companies.

However, the services we provide to HQ broker do not, and should not, reflect the entirety of BSD in any way; reiterating that HQ broker is not the only company we cater.

BSD neither handles HQ broker’s clients nor their clients’ accounts and/or funds. Our company also does not give financial advice to HQ broker itself or to their clients; our company does not provide HQ broker financial services, ergo ensuring that we are not involved to any of their transacting activities. BSD yields only the services available in our company, and we do not offer HQ broker further proceedings beyond what I have mentioned.

I attest that our company fulfills its obligations and responsibilities in practicing all laws and regulations stated from our country’s Department of Labor and Employment.

Furthermore, all claims stated heretofore to our company are false and should therefore be removed as we stand to retain the company’s upright name and reputation. It would be of our complete right to institute legal proceedings should any comments, reviews, or claims against BSD is not discarded or removed.

We await your action and response.

Respectfully,
BSD Trade Services Corp.

HQBroker.com scam

BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front): HQ Brokers is a scam. Even ASIC (Australian Securities and Investments Commission) thinks so.

I just got a cold call from +44 22 0296 9287 claiming to be from HQBroker. They claimed to allow trading in “international markets” including “the big four – Stocks, Currencies, Commodities and Indexes”. I asked on which exchanges can I trade and they seemed to be confused by that question. NYSE, ASX, NASDAQ, LSE who knows.

They claimed that 20% of their clients were in Australia. More on that later.

They claim they are “regulated” and “licensed” but when I challenged that claim they started naming large American financial institutions that provide “liquidity guarantees” to them. Their website states they are licensed in Poland [updated 4 June 2018]. Without an Australian Financial Services (AFS) Licence, I pointed out that they were making an illegal brokering solicitation in Australia. They said that opening an Australian office is difficult but that as soon as they have 1000 active traders they will do it.

Aside: If 20% of their clients is less than 1000 traders then they have less than 5000 clients, right?

The “securities manager” I was now talking to said they were a large “international company” trading in “international markets”, surely their IP address would be blocked if they were not regulated and licensed in Australia. I pointed out that Australia currently only blocks piracy sites.

While unlicensed, cold-call, broking solicitation is illegal in Australia, that wasn’t where it got really scary.

The zinger? HQBroker offered “software with 100% successful record that monitors the market 20 times a second, 5 days a week, 24 hours a day”. Even forex markets are closed once the New York market closes on Friday afternoon (local time) until Sydney opens on Monday morning (local time). In reality that means there is about a day and a half that we can’t trade retail forex. Interbank forex is manned 24/7 but retail investors can’t access that market.

I honed in on that 100% success claim. Nobody (and no AI) hits on every trade, some trades just don’t pay off. But they wouldn’t budge, they proudly said “risk free”, then “money back guarantee” if I tried their three day trial on a $250USD account opening deposit. After 3 days I could withdraw my original deposit and any gains-if there were any losses they’d refund the deposit in full.

This mysterious software not only gives trade signals but actually opens and closes trades on their international markets. It uses “mathematical models” to automatically trade for you.

Again, I expressed my skepticism at the 100% successful trade claim. “Impossible!” I exclaimed. The system has “automatic stop loss and take profit”. Stop loss? Aha! So losses are possible. “No,” he said, “because trading pairs move in sync like USD/Gold. When one is falling the other is rising.” So now HQBroker is back to pitching binary options trading as fool-proof, no-risk, guaranteed triple-digit-percentage returns.

At that point I’d finished my lunch and wanted to get back to working so I hung up, I’d wasted 48 minutes of their time while eating my lunch. A pleasant distraction.

A quick google search will show HQBroker is very poorly reviewed, with it’s corporate structure best described as “murky”.

Update: 4 April 2018 10:24 AEST: The comments section is getting some traction so I’ll leave it as a bit of a free-for-all for now. There is rudimentary anti-spam checking but that’s it. I cannot confirm identity of any or all commentators below.

Remember: On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.

Update: 10 May 2018 Got a call with the exact same MO today from 03 9077 1873 but this time promoting Financials Trading Online which is listed as a scam on ASIC’s MoneySmart website. Either H Q Brokers are moving on or it’s a variation on the same scam.

Big update: 4 June 2018

[1]  Capzone Ltd (and A.K.A Hokkaido Investments Sp) is now listed on ASIC’s MoneySmart website, with the Marshall Island’s address but HQBroker email and website. Those links open MoneySmart’s website.

[2] The company behind HQBroker is Capzone Ltd originally listed as in the Marshall Islands and/or Poland, now claiming to be in Hong Kong. So they’ve started the shell game of changing structures. They give Capzone Ltd  “operational address” as 7/F, Low Block, Grand Millennium Plaza, 181 Queen’s Road Central, Hong Kong. No registered office or other legal domicile.

[3] The digital marketing and spin doctoring has begun:

  1. They brag about a “3 star” review on FXEmpire with a self-created award wreath but don’t link to it. I’ve linked to it and add your review to let people know.
  2.  They brag about a “3 star Premium Quality” at Finance Magnates with a self-created seal. But Finance Magnates don’t provide reviews. They only have a “directory listing” called a review and the “contact us directly” form goes straight to HQBrokers. People could report the listing to Finance Magnates using the form on the home page.
  3. Digital Marketing Services are provided by Pure Marketing Corp Ltd (I can’t find them yet).
  4. Their website now has instant message chat.

[4] H Q Brokers now does not offer services in USA, France and Hong Kong. Further evidence of avoiding prosecution at “home” and in aggressive jurisdiction that will prosecute foreign companies without a presence in those jurisdictions.

Update 21 June 2018

We received an Official letter from HQBroker and an Official Letter from BSD Administration. Check them out and let me know what you think on those posts.

There are also 2 comments pending with glowing reviews but fake email addresses and fake IP addresses. I’m waiting for the authors to confirm their email addresses before approving the comments. They still haven’t confirmed.

Update 27 June 2018

BSD Trade Services is possibly reduced its work due to recent police raids on similar BPO’s, but their sibling organisation GWU Marketing Corp has picked up the slack and is operating out of Clark CFEZ Philippines. Specific commentary on GWU and BSD will be on their linked posts. Please post any news about GWU or BSD there.

Update 3 July 2018

After the BSD & GWU updates with photos of key staff on Thursday, the server was attacked with 108,954 visitors over 4 days. That’s 1000 viewers per hour! Not really that much traffic and the server hummed along. You can see the analytics of the attack here https://bitly.com/2lHeI0c+
