Gulf War Gift Returned From George W Bush’s White House

Support Our Troops

Support our troopsIn 2003 I was handing out “Support The Troops” lapel pins throughout my travels in the defense industry. Everyone was super patriotic and happy to receive a pin. I decided to send a bag of 100 pins with the American flag to George W Bush at the White House and I sent another bag of 100 pins supporting the UK troops directly to the Tony Blair, the Prime Minister at 10 Downing Street. These pins had a British flag at the top.

I received a note back from 10 Downing Street thanking me for the bag of pins I sent.

10 downing street

And a few weeks later, the pins I sent the Bush White House were returned to me by the what is essentially the White House post office. White House Presidential Correspondence

As an American, it really blew my mind to have the Prime Minister accept my gift and the office of George W Bush returning my gift.

Technology Tour in Alaska – Secure Data Centers

Ted Lancer Alaska

Awhile back I was asked to be part of a team conducting due diligence for proposed secure data centers just outside of Anchorage Alaska. These potential co-location facilities would be secure cost effective locations as just one part of tier 4 redundant data locations.

 

Alaska made sense because less power would be needed to supply a cool air environment. And in fact, while air “conditioning”, filtering systems would run all year, the AC compressors would only be needed to cool the air 10 months out of the year.

We toured the A,T&T ALASCOM data center in Anchorage before heading up to two separate mountain locations outside of Anchorage with the mission of building a doomsday data facility.

ALASCOM

The first location was proposed within a closed military underground missile control site that was very active after the cold war. The second site would have been involved with opening up a closed mining site. One site would require more of an investment and another, more federal oversight. My team made their recommendation and a site was chosen at a third location I am not able to disclose at this time.

I have posted some photographs from trip below.

Blocksims using the identities of real people as a scam

Shehar Yar Blocksims

Just a few more facts on the fraudulent efforts of the criminal, Shehar Yar of Blocksims, who is trying to justify his stolen ICO. I will be showing you how they have chosen the photograph of a prominent business person as their Bounty Manager and the photo of a Russian serial killer to troll the Mobilink-coin Telegram group. I would like to give a shout out to FaceFirst, my personal favorite when it comes to facial recognition software.

Blocksims.io created a false identity on their Telegram account named “Maxine Layare”. This user is Blocksims Bounty Manager.

Maxine Layare Blocksims

Blocksimstelegram

However I identified the image associated with this fraudulent Telegram Blocksims identity with a very respected business person named Janet Cowell.

Janet Cowell

We reached out to Janet and she is aware of her photographic identity being stolen by Blocksims.

Next we have a man named “Henry Layman” with an image of a bald guy who has been trolling the Mobilink-Coin Telegram page.

Aslan Gagiev Djako Blocksims

Aslan Gagiev Djako Shehar Yar

As it turns out, Henry is actually Russian serial killer, Aslan Gagiev, also known as Djako. Djako has killed over 60 people.

Shehar Yar Serial Killer

If it weren’t so sad, I would have to laugh at the felonious comedy team known as Blocksims, led by criminal ringleader Shehar Yar. Are they just pulling images and identities out of their ass? Or was there a specific strategy to use an image of a respectable business person for their own company and the image of a Russian serial killer to troll Mobilink-coin? Time will tell of their failing fraudulent efforts as my investigative team and I uncover every rock looking for fraud.

 

Blocksims ICO Fraud – Name calling vs investigative facts

blocksims alepy

Consider this post Part 3 in a series of my investigation of Blocksims.io and Shehar Yar, the mastermind of this deception and many more. My first post more then proved Blocksims was a fraud. My second post called out the “actors” used in a promotional video to add Anglo credibility to their ICO. Today I will focus on the counter-attacks the suspects have been using and some additional data I have received from many parties.

The players with Blocksims are Shehar Yar, Gopinath Krishnamoorthy, Kugan Ausuvalingam, Tarmaraja Padrasono, Muhammad Younas, Elias Rodriguez, Uri Valles, David Martial, J. Ricardo Pala. The other linked projects (where team is also interested with the Blocksims.io): mivolink.com, ico.krytobonds.io (KBS), weigrate.io, alepy.io.

As I have been writing this post I was notified of the results of an independent investigation here. And, this article has already been syndicated to Coin5s.

The responses from the accused play out like a comedy. In a discussion at Bitcointalk the user named Alepy, which is actually Shehar Yar or one of his associates blew a fuse. Started talking all “Gangsta” and threatened me with “F’ing me up if Mobilink Coin did not close up shop.” First, I don’t work for Mobilink and second, the moderator should have removed the user for making threats.

Then they created a personality on YouTube doing a negative video on Mobilink.io as if they were a genuine investigator like me. They seem to be getting all upset when factual evidence through documents, screenshots and other sources gets posted online. Their only response is to counter-attack with angry emotion, name calling and fake news.

I was cruising around Facebook looking for other businesses that are run by Shehar Yar and found this meme on one of the sites:

Blocksims Shehar Yar

The good news is that Blocksims.io is showing up all over the internet as a fraud. The ICO news sites like FoundICO have removed Blocksims from their database. Foxico has marked them as a scam. They are on Ripoff Report. The fraud is also taking social media by storm.

I have yet to even invest in Mobilink, however I really hate fraud which was my motivation to keep this investigation going. In the long run I hope this information on Shehar Yar, Gopinath Krishnamoorthy, Kugan Ausuvalingam, Tarmaraja Padrasono, Muhammad Younas, Elias Rodriguez, Uri Valles, David Martial, J. Ricardo Pala protects consumers and ICO investors worldwide from trusting their money with these folks.

Securing classified information within government work spaces

Back before I was investigating classified proprietary materials theft, I was at one specific facility where the emphasis was on not leaving classified materials laying around work stations. The employee or contractor may think their project is safe just lying on a desk or up on the computer screen while they head to the restroom but statistics show many secrets have been stolen from materials left right out in the open.

The secure locations will host training classes, send out memos but they also used something as basic as cartoonish signs placed on desks, in cubicles and on walls throughout the facility like these signs I collected at one of my duty stations.

Elias Rodriguez, Uri Valles, Shehar Yar, Kryptobonds, Blocksims – The Investigation

Elias Rodriguez

In my prior investigative article I was focused specifically on the alleged ICO fraud of Shehar Yar and Blocksims. A couple of weeks have passed since that post and the investigation and observations have really started dominating the internet. Many of the ICO databases are marking Blocksims as a scam. One even removed their name from their list of ICO’s and they have been reported to the Ripoff Report and others.

Today I saw a video Blocksims.io posted trying to communicate the legitimacy of their ICO. The video looks great. Very CONvincing. It features two individuals, Elias Rodriguez and Uri Valles who are allegedly Blockchain influencers and advisors for BlockSims.

Uri Valles

Problem is, they are probably actors.

By actors I mean scripted and orchestrated. Probably paid by Blocksims in cash or tokens to make Blocksims look legit. Or maybe they are the ACTUAL founders of Blocksims and hired Shehar to design their infrastructure. As you can see below, they are both listed as Co-founders of an ICO called KryptoBonds.

There is an entire ICO promotional industry working throughout the world. $20 per hour dev hacks from Malaysia, India, Philippines and abroad like Shehar Yar and his team, take advantage of the fact most new ICO’s are being run by people who would rather stay behind the scenes. An ICO is just air. A void if you will, until it is funded. Out of the 1,100 ICO’s in play right now, most are complete scams or enthusiastic crypto junkies that honestly want to make a go of it.

Many of the scammers are overseas Fiverr sellers living with goats behind their parents home. They have to communicate a successful presence on the web. They need to look like “ballers” in the ICO world. So they hire successful looking actors to represent their brand. Then they build fraudulent Linkedin profiles which never really line up with reality.

So allow me to dig a little deeper into my research.

elias rodriguez

Elias Rodriguez states in his LinkedIn profile that he attended two Universities.

Imperial College London
Degree Name Postgraduate Diploma
Field Of Study Inertial Confinement Plasma Physics
Dates attended or expected graduation 1989 – 1991

Queen Mary University of London
Degree Name BEng
Field Of Study Nuclear Engineering
Dates attended or expected graduation 1985 – 1989

As an investigator I made formal contact with both colleges. They responded there were no records for Elias Rodriguez. Is “Inertial Confinement Plasma Physics” really a feild of study?. Google it. There are 8 posts worldwide using variants of such a field of study.

Elias holds a BEng in Nuclear Engineering from London University and now leads a small RD&E team in the automotive industry. He is a web developer and website reseller.

Elias Rodriguez

And I ask myself, if I was Elias and had was a nuclear physicist, why would I be labeled an automotive consultant and a probable stand in for a couple of ICO’s?

I did find an “E. M. Rodriguez Ventura” who published a paper in 1988 called, “Solutions of the diffusion equation in cones and wedges”. And that name lines up with the published educational data found here:

http://www.rguez.com/elias.htm

I did find a twitter account with a photo of the same guy along with the statement that he is the co-founder of KryptoBonds.

Elias Rodriquez Cryptomunny

Then we look at Uri Valles. Same story. Alleged false educational statements.

Uri valles

Now let’s look at another business these two are part of. KryproBonds. KryptoBonds was also designed by Shehar Yar representing AxChain.

axchain shehar yar

The primary principals of Kryptobonds are Elias and Uri. Kryptobonds does not look like it is going to fly. The following statement is on their website:

Dear Investors,

We have decided to postpone the ICO for KryptoBonds for a few months until we manage some crucial negotiations with new partners which will make the platform even more exciting. Please bear with us and do rest assured that we will keep you informed of new developments as they come out.

KBS Team

(Update 4/23/2018 – Very little activity if any online from KryptoBonds. It is my opinion it is not going to fly.)

Elias rodriguez uri valles kryptobond

And they are principals in Blocksims which is currently under investigation for fraud.

Uri Valles Elias Rodriguez

(Update 04/23/2018 – Other then the youtube video their profiles and all of the team member profiles have been removed from the Blocksims website)

And lastly, AxChain(Shehar Yar), who denies any cross relationships, worked for Mobilink as their web developer via his company AxChain.

Axchain

Is the reader as confused as I am? My opinions are limited to facts I know to be true, internet research, social media research and phone calls. The balance of my allegations is conjecture as I try to fill in the blanks.

If Elias Rodriguez and Uri Valles are reading this post, please reach out to me directly ted@tedlancer.com

Before you defend yourselves w/re my allegations,  the first thing we need to do is establish proof of life. A color scan of your passport will do. Next, proof of your education followed by an explanation of your relationship of Shehar Yar.

And lastly, please don’t be offended but you guys ARE the face of an ICO currently under investigation.

 

Texas Regulators Going After The R2B Coin Based in Hong Kong

Texas ICO Cryptocurrency

Regulators in the State of Texas are going after a Hong Kong based Cryptocurrency called the R2B Coin. The Texas State Securities Board (TSSB) is accusing the company of selling an unregistered security to Texas residents.

The Emergency Cease and Desist Order can be found here

As per the R2B site, the firm says its pre-mined digital currency “R2B Coin” will have an offering cost extending from $0.008 to $188. It additionally asserts that “R2B Coins will reach $200 inside three months after the beginning of exchanging, and will be among top 10 monetary forms in 1– 1.5 years.”

The TSSB is stating this falls under the definition of a security and is “misleading and deceptive”.

While the firm claims to be internationally authorized, the Texas controller said R2B isn’t enrolled in its ward and along these lines has damaged securities directions by requesting speculators from Texas through a progression of phone calls.

I wrote a post about the SEC going after IPO’s which I thought was going to be regulated at the federal and now it has advanced to the state level.

Facebook creates new policy on advertising ICO’s and cryptocurrency

ICO Scams Fraud

Facebook has another crime prevention strategy relating to digital money, parallel choices and introductory coin offerings. The strategy is going to prevent ICO’s and other Cryptocurrencies from advertising or promoting on Facebook “that are as often as possible related with deceiving or misleading practices,” Facebook Product Management Director Rob Leathern wrote in a blog entry today.

Cryptographic forms of money like Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum, and initial coin offerings have all hit the standard, which has expeditiously brought about various scams. While Facebook says it needs individuals “to proceed to find and learn” about those items and administrations, “there are numerous organizations who are promoting paired choices, ICOs and digital forms of money that are not right now working in accordance with integrity,” Leathern composed.

Leathern perceives that the strategy is very expansive, yet he says that is deliberate. The arrangement is to keep attempting to better distinguish beguiling and misdirecting advertisements that relate to digital forms of money, ICOs and double choices.

After some time, Facebook says it will return to the strategy and its implementation components as its signs progress. Meanwhile, Facebook is urging individuals to report content that disregards this arrangement.

“This approach is a piece of a progressing push to enhance the uprightness and security of our advertisements, and to make it harder for con artists to benefit from a nearness on Facebook,” Leathern composed.

I suspect Facebook will be shutting off the account of Blocksims soon. Blocksims CEO, Shehar Yar is under investigation for theft and operating a scam IPO.

The Expectation of Advanced Defense Aviation Technologies

SR-72

In November of 1955, a C-54 US Air Force transport plane crashed in the Spring Mountains in Southern Nevada. All 14 occupants were killed. The families of the decedents knew their family members had died but they were never told what the mission was until 1998 when an FOIA provided the accident report.  Flight 9068 was transporting members of the CIA and other defense contractors to Groom lake, aka Area 51 for a test flight of the U-2 Spy-plane. The U-2 was at the highest level of secrecy, probably in the the top five of secret black budget projects ever.

This was a new technology. This was the first high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft. There was no expectation of this technology. Maybe a dream of this concept, but it had to be kept under wraps so the missions could be implemented in secrecy once the U-2 passed all testing. After the public knew of the U2, there was an expectation of the next big thing in defense aviation. The public just did not know about the A-12 project designed by Lockheed for the CIA in 1960 which eventually became the SR-71 that could fly higher and faster then any aircraft on earth. This project was started as the U-2 was flying missions.

Then we had a the “Black Triangles”. The F-117 Nighthawk was the first offensive aircraft built with stealth technology. Its maiden flight was in 1981 and started overseas operations in 1983. It was flying missions from the secret Tonapah flight facility for 5 years before the general public knew of its existence.  This technology, creating stealth fighters and bombers was not an expected technology by the general public. One of my business partners actually oversaw the security and secrecy at Tonapah before he retired from the military. Oh the stories I could tell.

In 2015, Coastal Californians witnessed a missile launch offshore. There were all kinds of conspiracy theories like the US Navy was conducting a mock attack on Los Angeles. What they might not have known was that in 1946, just after WW2, President Truman, created the establishment of the Naval Air Missile Test Center at Point Mugu. The Point Mugu complex works in collaboration with its sister location at China Lake NAWCWC. Most of the public did not know advanced missile technologies were being developed right under their noses.

Lets move to the present day. On January 16th, Bloomberg Technology reported the possible existence of the replacement of the SR-71 with the SR-72 called “The Son of Blackbird”. There are all kinds of theories going around about a secret aircraft called Aurora. Some people think this aircraft is just sitting in a blueprint. I however, based upon history and my poking around,  feel the SR-72 has been around for 4 years to support the RQ-180 drone. The SR-72 investigates and the drone monitors the target area. We did not replace the SR-71 without a replacement and we can all conceive of an expected advance into greater defense technologies.

 

 

Shehar Yar of Blocksims under investigation for fraud and intellectual property theft

shehar yar blocksims

Shehar YarThis is Shehar Yar. Shehar Yar was hired by an ICO, Mobilink-Coin to develop a website, database and back office for their company. Earlier this month Shehar was fired after the client realized the website the client had paid for was actually a clone from another website UTrust. The developer did not in fact create a custom website per the original scope of work and contract. And in fact, Shehar left much of the identifying code from the original website within the cloned website. Many screenshots and files were provided to me as proof. Here is just one from the root directory

Shehar Yar

Not that that was enough of an offense, on January 22nd a website was registered called blocksims.io representing an ICO called Blocksims. Problem is, Blocksims resembles the exact online presence Shehar Yar was developing for his prior client, Mobilink-coin. Based upon the timelines I have and the subsequent launch of a like product last week, by all appearances this team has indeed started a fraudulent business process to present their client’s business as their own.

I am Ted, the original Ted, and I have been asked as a writer and former investigator to look into the alleged fraud, intellectual property theft, hacking and trade secret theft by Mr Yar and his associates, Gopinath Krishnamoorthy, Kugan Ausuvalingam, Tarmaraja Padrasono and Muhammad Younas dba an ICO and telcom product called Blocksims.

This case was brought to my attention after several investors started reaching out because they were receiving e mails from buzz@blocksims.io

blocksims

This contractor that was fired, establishes a website on the 22nd of Jaunuary, 3 days after being fired officially by the client.  Mr Yar’s website essentially representing the clients entire marketing model and 7 days later, the members of the clients ICO are receiving e mails from the very same company. Can any reasonable individual think this is a coincidence? It is clear this contractor, Shehar Yar downloaded the clients database or hacked into it. I have a forensic technology team looking into it now.

I am currently reviewing hundreds of Skype messages between Shehar Yar and the original client starting in October of last year.

On 10/17 there is communication between Yar and the CEO of the client negotiating the hiring of Yar as a developer for the team.

On 10/26 mobilink.io is established.

On 11/20 it looks like they are moving forward with the business relationship when Yar is asked about other projects he has worked on:

[11/20/2017 10:55:55 PM] Client: I would like to see the websites
[11/20/2017 10:56:00 PM] Shehar Yar: atbcoin.com
[11/20/2017 10:56:09 PM] Shehar Yar: https://mainsale.powerledger.io
[11/20/2017 10:56:36 PM] Shehar Yar: This is our latest project .
https://www.brickblock.io/
[11/20/2017 10:56:55 PM] Shehar Yar: Working on raising funds digital marketing
[11/20/2017 10:59:59 PM] Shehar Yar: Here is our media platform we’ve also been listing ICO’s etc.
https://www.cryptocurrencyreporters.com/

The next day we can clearly see Yar taking the lead on the design process:

[11/21/2017 10:37:13 AM] Rod Ceo: yes today will take care of that
[11/21/2017 10:38:02 AM | Edited 10:38:05 AM] Shehar Yar: Great we’ll send you something soon I’ll be working on the main Domain
[11/21/2017 10:38:21 AM] Shehar Yar: Like the landing page will be added to Mobilink.io
[11/21/2017 10:38:36 AM] Rod Ceo: ok, great
[11/21/2017 10:38:37 AM] Shehar Yar: They can continue working on Staging
[11/21/2017 10:39:17 AM] Shehar Yar: Please make sure to make me admin on Facebook ads account and and Google adwords
[11/21/2017 10:39:23 AM] Shehar Yar: Highly needed
[11/21/2017 10:39:31 AM] Shehar Yar: Samitpro2@gmail.com
[11/21/2017 10:40:21 AM] Shehar Yar: We need a to write a couple blog for our blog section will discuss that over a call as well

Per the client, Yar was to have had a completed project in December. It was incomplete and filled with errors. The client was not happy. Excuses were made by Yar and at one point he wanted more money. In January after finding out that the large sum of money he was paid, purchased an incomplete website that was a copy of another clients website.

In January, Shehar Yar was fired which led to him starting an ICO which is almost an exact duplicate of the product the client was offering.

So who is Shehar Yar? I googled his name, his “name” with “ICO” added and a number of his e mail addresses. It looks like he has been involved in the development of many ICO’s that never launched. I find it funny to compare his stated persona as the CEO of Blocksims…

Shehar Yar

…yet he is listed as a $20 per hour hack at UpWork

Shehar Yar

Last night there was a social media buzz about Blocksims and Shehar Yar allegedly ripping off Mobilink.io. They responded with a post on Twitter accusing the client of stealing THEIR idea. I am glad I got a screenshot last night as they deleted their original post:

Blocksims.io

Before I make my closing remarks, and if you conduct a Google search for Shehar Yar ICO, you will see the subject of this investigation was clearly one of many team members of the client, mobilink.io

Shehar Yar Mobilink

Shehar Yar Blocksims

Shehar Yar ico

You can see clearly that the clients company existed before Yar was hired as a contractor and the statement that the client ripped off HE and Blocksims is completely false.

The Timeline

On October 20, 2017 negotiations started to hire Shehar Yar as a developer contractor.

The client registered their website, mobilink.io on October 26th.

In November the work started by Yar and Yar was added as a developer to the clients team list on multiple ICO directories.

In December the product was supposed to be delivered and was incomplete and filled with errors.

In January 2018, Yar was fired for not completing the scope of work in a timely manner, insisting on charging more money to complete the project and being discovered that he cloned an existing website and just swapped out the content.

On January 22nd, 2018 Blocksims.io was registered and the site went live recently essentially duplicating the clients online presence.

On January 29th, e mails started being received from Blocksims.io inviting them to see THEIR opportunity.

On January 30th, Blocksims claims they were ripped off in response to a social media buzz.

My personal opinion based upon the allegations and my observations to date.

Mr Yar, having sour grapes because he was fired, has chosen to cause financial harm to his prior client buy presenting the clients business as his own under a different name. Mr Yar breached the database of the client illegally and has been reaching out to the clients member database. Mr Yar who has been involved in a number of ICO’s, none successful, does not have the finances nor the experience to be the CEO of an ICO.

Consider this blog post Part 1 of a series as I investigate his associates, Gopinath Krishnamoorthy, Kugan Ausuvalingam, Tarmaraja Padrasono and Muhammad Younas and others associated with his prior ICO endeavors.
