Alec Difrawi’s Gravatar: As the owner of this company, along with it’s predecessor Internet Solutions Corporation, I can assure you that I have never been arrested for any crime, never served time in Federal prison for fraud related offenses and never sued anyone for saying bad things about me or my company.

ColdFusion is the backbone of my empire of internet advertising based on the pretense that my companies offer jobs to people. I can’t very well help it if people don’t want to drink the Kool-Aid and eat the Spam sandwiches at my company parties.

Looking for a Job? Phishers Are Looking for You
On Saturday, The Washington Post ran a story I wrote on a phishing scheme that targets job seekers who have posted their resumes on popular job sites such as Monster, Career Builder and Yahoo Hot Jobs.
This particular scam came with an Onion-esque flourish. One of the supposed employers, USAVoice.org, called itself “the world’s fastest growing news organization,” and lured aspiring journalists to give up personal information during the application prospect.
The news on the Web site, as one victim realized too late, doesn’t update as often as, say CNN.com does, and consists of stories with timely headlines such as “A History of Valentines Day.”
The scam came to the attention of the D.C. area Better Business Bureau because USA Voice uses a downtown Washington address, which turns out to be little more than a mail drop. A related site, Instant Human Resources, lists an address in Rockville, also a mail drop. Together, they’ve generated more than 8,000 inquiries since June.
While these particular Web sites are pretty slick, the phishing e-mails themselves are by no means the most sophisticated ever created. That honor, if you can call it that, belongs to the stream of official looking missives from financial firms, which are still the most popular ones to spoof among cyber criminals. After all, you’re more likely to give up valuable financial info that way.
In that sense, the personal info that appears on job sites may not be as lucrative. But even a name, e-mail, address and telephone number are worth something to scammers. They can turn around and sell those or use them to perpetrate “synthetic identity theft,” where a phony identity is created using bits of real people’s information.
In this particular case, the success of the scam relied on a two-pronged strategy. Not only did they advertise on the job sites, but they also contacted people who used them.
Job seekers who posted their resumes on Monster, Career Builder and Yahoo received e-mails from either USA Voice or Instant Human Resources, telling them that based on the their resumes they qualified for a promising sounding position. Those who didn’t smell a scam right away filled out online applications, in the process disclosing personal information.
Some get as far as entering a Social Security number. Many only get to name and address before backing out. At that point, job offers don’t come pouring in, but spam does.
The job sites have gotten wise to these schemes and, for the past several years, have been posting warnings on their Web sites in an effort to educate users before it’s too late. They also pre-screen job postings and monitor them daily. But it seems inevitable that scams will get through. Privacy expert Pam Dixon looked into how long USAVoice has been online; the site is about a year old. Most phishing sites don’t stay up for a week. So this one seems to have staying power, despite having their job postings removed from Monster and Career Builder.
The job seekers I interviewed for this story who said they were scammed by USAVoice and Instant Human Resources were not naive Internet surfers by any means. One has made a living in technology. But their normal scam radar was blocked by their desire for employment, which is what makes this particular scam so effective–and so lame!

Attorney Keith Kress letter to I-power.com
My name is Keith Kress and I serve as General Counsel for Three Stars Media,
Inc., Three Stars, Inc., and MonkeyJar, Inc. It has come to my attention
that IPOWER now hosts the Web site http://www.scamfraudalert.com
, which is currently owned and operated by
Mr. Richardson. Over the past two (2) years, Mr. Richardson
has continuously and repeatedly posted intentionally false and defamatory
material regarding my corporate clients and their principals and violated
numerous copyrights belonging to my clients and, upon information and
belief, copyrights belonging to other organizations. Through his
intentional, defamatory and injurious attacks against my clients by Mr.
Garga-Richardson on his Web site http://www.scamfraudalert.com
, my client has suffered and continues to
suffer irreparable harm and damages.
Included in his attacks are posts in which Mr. Richardson states as
fact that Three Stars Media and MonkeyJar are “scams”, participate in
“fraud”, “phishing” and “identity theft”. Such false and unsubstantiated
attacks against internet based companies like my clients, can obviously
destroy, or at the very least, significantly harm their business interests.
As a result, we have had no choice but to proceed against Mr.
Richardson through the legal system. However, as you likely know, this
can be a long and laborious process which, until the issue is resolved and
the courts compel Mr. Richardson to cease and desist his irresponsible
and harmful behavior, will cause my clients continues harm and damages
Based on the foregoing, I am requesting that you remove
http://www.scamfraudalert.com http://www.scamfraudalert.com/ from your hosting
platform based upon the Web site’s clear and obvious violations of IPOWER’s
Acceptable Use Policy relating to defamation and copyright infringement. In
the alternative, we request that IPOWER remove any and all defamatory
references about Three Stars Media, Inc., Three Stars, Inc., and MonkeyJar,
Inc. (including http://www.MonkeyJar.com http://www.monkeyjar.com/ ) or at least
utilize a robot.txt file to prohibit search engines, such as Google, from
crawling and ranking the offending Web site . Should you agree to the
foregoing we are willing reimburse your lost revenue that you will realize
by discontinuing hosting services for http://www.scamfraudalert.com
as well as other considerations we may
I appreciate your time and attention to this matter. Should you have any
questions regarding the foregoing, please contact me at this e-mail address
or at the telephone number listed below.

As I have told you numerous times, our job offers are actual listings posted by our clients and, during the job application process, the applicant is presented with an advertisement that he or she may “opt in” if they so choose. The applicant’s decision whether or not to opt in has no bearing on their application. As a result, our job listings are not “something else” as you allege and any such disclaimer is unnecessary.
Additionally, I find it disingenuous on your part to demand we post disclaimers for our legitimate job offers based on the mere fact that there is an advertising component involved when you, on your own Web site that is purportedly dedicated to assisting consumers, place Google ads to generate revenue. Are you not relying on revenue from advertising just as we are in order to support and operate your site? How is that different from how we operate our business? Where are your disclaimers relating to advertisements on your site?
In your previous correspondence you claim that you did not send an e-mail to our staff and ask that we accept your assertion as truth. However, although I have laid out for you everything we do and how we do it you refuse to believe us and continue your false allegations that we are a scam despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. You ask that we take your word as fact when you refuse to even consider our position. As a result, we have no other choice but to proceed with the lawsuit in order to protect our interests. During trial, you will have the opportunity to come to Florida and defend your actions to a jury and attempt to prove your alleged innocence. Perhaps the jury will believe you, perhaps they won’t; in any event my client will have its day in court.
Notwithstanding the foregoing I have been authorized to make you a one-time settlement offer which, if accepted, would compel my client to dismiss the lawsuit. My client is willing to pay you $1000.00 and will drop the lawsuit in exchange for you removing any and all postings on your Web site and blog and any and all Web sites and blogs that you control, contribute to or moderate. Furthermore, you must agree not to post anything in the future about any of my clients’ business operations or Web sites. This settlement offer will expire at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 16, 2009. Should you refuse the settlement offer my client has asked I proceed with the lawsuit as well as the filing of any additional lawsuits on behalf of the other corporate entities we work with which you have unfairly and unjustly attacked.

SFA, you guys rock. Don’t stop, ever! You have a RIGHT to free speech and using SLAPP suits and maliciously threatening language will just land them in hot water. Not to mention, you COULD file a complaint with the Bar Association on the law firm threatening you.
You have a right to speak or write ANYTHING you wish. The legal issues come after that. No-one is permitted by law, to interfere with your right to speak your mind, even if what you say is libelous. They can sue you for libel, but not for speaking your mind.
Call their bluff and fight them. It’s worth it, and you’re not alone. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
