What really happened
In May 2020, yours truly, The Skeptic Tank, published a rather scathing review for LBLV, a seemingly suspicious trading company with a very bad reputation.
So it seems that LBLV, or someone they hired (my best guess, a fly-by-night reputation agency) thought of a (not so) brilliant plan. They copied the review on LBLV from our website, reposted it on a FREE BLOG at www.livejournal.com, backdated it, and proceeded to file a ‘Copyright Takedown’ complaint with Google.
What is a Copyright Takedown claim (DMCA)? It is to enforce your copyright on your content and publication. In this case, these scammers forged an entire website, a fake identity, and perjured themselves while filing the fraudulent DMCA.
Yes, you heard it right. LBLV seems to have committed a series of unlawful activities, both civil as well as criminal in nature. These include –
- Identity theft
- Copyright Theft
The fraudulent DMCA notice was filed by a (fake) person calling himself – Rausch Bergblick
Upon further investigation, there seem to be 4 more instances of similar crimes committed, all of them pretty recently –
These are supposedly the ‘negative’ links they intended to remove from Google. The common factor in these above links is – Fredi Shima, who was accused of ‘grossly misrepresenting’ his earnings in order to take out three mortgages.
Fredi Shima, of Mill Lane, Marston, denies two counts of obtaining a money transfer by deception and a further count of fraud.
His trial at Oxford Crown Court has heard how the 44-year-old is alleged to have deceived the mortgage lenders Birmingham Midshires in order to obtain hundreds of thousands of pounds.
A copy of this article is being sent to the Court officer at Oxford Crown Court and the Oxford Combined Court Center ([email protected]).
Who knew Perjury is illegal in UK as well….
The Death Threats
Anyways, let’s get back to LBLV.
Last month, we received multiple threats, including those of violence against our staff members. We do get a lot of grief from these scam companies, but never take them seriously. Usually, it’s just hot air.
Not this time, it seems. LBLV escalated from ‘offering bribe’ to remove the review, to sending death threats via it’s proxies. And when that didn’t work, straight up jumped to committing a series of crimes in the process.
and they got caught.
Our legal counsel has already filed a counter notice, and the Review should be available within a week or so on Google, back to it’s full glory, #1 on Google across the globe. Not only that, we’re now inviting other publications to join in and research LBLV and to expose for the corruption and crimes they stand for.
The Negative Content
Here are some excerpts from theforexreview.com article they illegally removed –
LBLV is a Seychelles based forex and CFD broker offering several account types on the MetaTrader5 platform and a leverage as high as 500:1. However, we have some very serious doubts about their regulatory status so make sure you read this review first, before opening a trading account with them.
and it goes on to warn potential victims –
LBLV is scam broker, they steal people’s money .you can not withdraw your money .
I placed order to withdraw the remaining money in my wallet account which is ~ 14000 $ , but today morning the account manager executed trades with big size to zeroes my wallet without my notice or opinion , I have closed these trades quickly and changed my password however after sometime I noticed another trades with very big sizes have been executed , I changed my password again but he is still able to execute more trades . during all this time I tried to reach the account manager in email, phone,whatsapp with no luck , also I tried to reach their customer service persons and they said they will inform the account manager .
Here is what their clients say about LBLV –
Became a client of this “company” in July 2019. The stories about the beautiful life lasted until March. When I realized that I would no longer replenish the deposit, I began to give unprofitable positions. Everything in the future will go to the fact that you will not be allowed to withdraw your deposit, not to mention the profit. If they will give to withdraw the alleged profit, then note that the money will come as a return of your own funds. In this office you will never get profit! Moreover, they will take your money. Think about it! They will say that it is more profitable to replenish through e-wallets and through bitcoin exchanges. They will impose contracts. Do not sign in any way! Install a program for recording telephone conversations. When applying for a chargeback, banks allegedly do not accept call recordings. Nothing like this! Insist on yours! Accept! Take screenshots of your personal account every day if you are an LBLV client. Do not connect anyone to your computer via remote access. All information provided by the company represented by the analyst is checked and analyzed 10 times. Don’t trust them! Under the terms of the offer agreement, the company supposedly owes you nothing! You owe her! Everyone is against you! Take the time to translate and read. My advice to you, if you have a positive deposit, do not get fooled by the kitchen’s promises to settle any issue. Just put all your money on the withdrawal. If the company does not withdraw, then terminate the contract with it and issue a chargeback if you replenished the deposit with cards. If one analyst cannot siphon money out of you, they exchange him for another more experienced one under any pretext. Yes. I stepped on a rake. But then I did not have such information. So people, think about it. My trading account is 151992230. I can provide you with any information. It turned out to be so much that you can even make a film.
And finally, the nail on the head comment –
LBLV is a scam broker, they steal people’s money .you can not withdraw your money .
I placed order to withdraw the remaining money in my wallet account which is ~ 5000 $ , but today morning the account manager FAHAD Dog executed trades with big size to zeroes my wallet without my notice or opinion , I have closed these trades quickly and changed my password however after sometime I noticed another trades with very big sizes have been executed , I changed my password again but he is still able to execute more trades . during all this time I tried to reach the account manager in email, phone,whatsapp with no luck , also I tried to reach their customer service persons and they said they will inform the account manager .
The account manager did these trades without my notice or opinion , he is not authorized to do so and the number of trades and size are very big which indicate that they wanted to zeros my account when I requested to withdraw my money .
