Blocksims ICO still conducting fraudulent business practices

I published a post on February 11th regarding the use of false identities and the false images of the players of the Blocksims ICO. I want to give you an update.

I called out Blocksims ICO for using the image of Janet Cowell for their bounty manager, Maxine.

I called them out and I am sure Janet’s representatives called them out as well for fraudulently using her image.

Now, Maxine has a new image that was pulled from a dating website.

You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to see the fraud. It just continues on and on.

I have investigated some of the largest scams in the world. Ponzi schemes. Money laundering by the Bank of New York. DoD fraud. Most of my adversaries were very intelligent. They knew how to work a scam. With that said, this Shehar Yar guy who is one of the top ICO scammers in the world is a real idiot. I am almost bored with him. There is no real challenge. I equate him with the schoolboy who steals a candy bar at a local grocer. And his delusions of grandeur, selling himself as a CEO when he lives behind his mom’s house with the goats as a $20 per hour dev hack amazes me.

As the original website developer for the very legit Mobilink.io, who was fired for being a fraud last December, who has systematically tried to crap on the Mobilink-coin after stealing their business model, he has the balls to infiltrate the Mobilink-Coin Telegram group to stir up the pot under the handle of Abidhussain Syed.

I tweaked the photo and there he is:

Shehar Yar Blocksims

Lastly, as I was monitoring the Blocksims Telegram room, I observed an individual asking if Blocksims.io was going to be approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission in the United States and their answer was yes.

Blocksims ICO

This is a complete lie. I would know this because I am a US citizen who made contact with the SEC. Of course, based upon the deceitful practices of the principals of the Blocksims ICO, I already knew this, I reported Blocksims to the authorities, once again.

As I expand on this investigation and the authorities get closer to kicking in the doors of the fraudulent players, please feel free to communicate directly with me if you have additional information. All communication will be held in the strictest of confidence. Ted@tedlancer.com

Lastly, did you know the Blocksims ICO is associated with a Russian serial killer?

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.

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

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.

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.
