Xian Energy Sot LLC (check cashing scam)

Might want to check this scam out. It is posted on another scam site. It is with www.purexian.biz. They have you cash checks on your bank and wire 95% to another country. I have not tried it, but it looks like a REAL rip-off.

Re: Xian Energy Sot LLC (check cashing scam)

Even if it's not a scam it definately looks like money laundering.

Re: Xian Energy Sot LLC (check cashing scam)

I signed up for this just for fun. Got a check (and nothing else) per FedEx from someone in Houston. Check was preprinted for $4,000. I was told to deposit and then wait for instructions. I tried to contact check issuer with no luck, but it was a valid identity. I did not deposit the check. Now they are threatening to charge me for the amount. I believe this is either international money laundering or identity theft. Any advice what I should do?

Re: Xian Energy Sot LLC (check cashing scam)

TexasII read through this thread to find out what to do:
http://www.scam.com/showthread.php?t=90

There was an ad from them on CareerBuilder.com on Monday. I googled purexian & found this site.
I then sent this message to CareerBuilder.com
Quote:
This is a work at home fraudulent check/wire
transfer scam and needs to be removed. Please
forward the job poster's infomation to the F.B.I and
the U.S Secret Service. For more info please see
this site: [url]http://financialcrimestaskforce.com/internationalwire

This is the so called job that is posted.
http://www.careerbuilder.com/JobSeeker/Jobs/JobDetail
Their Response:
Quote:

Terms and Conditions. Because of the legalities involved with this issue, a thorough investigation must be conducted. Please be assured that the proper people have been informed and are working on resolving any issues. We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused you.
Later they also sent me this message:

Re: Xian Energy Sot LLC (check cashing scam)

I found them today on careerbuilder.com also checked out link to the present website they are using related to that ad.
http://www.purexian.biz
I thought from the posts that this particular website was already shut down prehaps they have just moved it to another host , regardless it seems to be fully operative.
I am glad I checked for this as a scam before falling for these criminals antics.
I hope they are brought to Justice soon !

Re: Xian Energy Sot LLC (check cashing scam)

I signed up for Xian Energy yesterday. Today I googled the name and got a hit for this website. Thanks to everyone here, I told them to cancel my membership and not to send any checks. I found their site through careerbuilders.com on Sept. 9. Thanks

Re: Xian Energy Sot LLC (check cashing scam)

I should have found this website before I signed up with the company. I found the ads through Career.com in Sept, 2004. I got a check for $9300.00 from Fedex and I deposited in my checking account. Fortunate that my bank has to put the fund on hold for more than a week. When I got my instruction on wiring the fund; the released of the fund wasn't over so I went and check with the bank and see if I could get it released one day earlier. That is the time that my bank told me, the check was returned and has a message of contact the owner of the check. I tried to contact the Xian people, no result.
I just worry about my identity. If they would use my identity to produce the check and mail to other people.

Re: Xian Energy Sot LLC (check cashing scam)

Hello Lucky Girl
You are VERY fortunate that you are not out the $9300. File a complete report with your local bank and local police then go to www.ifccfbi.gov and file a report. If you still have the FedEx package, let the police examine it for details.

A hold page is up. Information on the registrant can be found at:

http://www.networksolutions.com/en_U...questid=416191

I am not certain if this will work as a re-visited link and must be entered at NetworkSolutions' WHOIS site.

Re: Xian Energy Sot LLC (check cashing scam)

I would say so - see my message under Ecos

"19th century" LLC goes under SPB Collection and is the same as Ecos Business Services - they operate banking fraud

I also sighed up with a company EZ-CHECKCASHING, however I refused to send them the validation paperework i.e. drivers lic etc. After sending numerous emails asking me for the paperwork, I recieved a notice that they had cleared me to be an agent and had sent by FED-EX a $215,000.00 dollar check which arrived the next morning!

I had no intention of depositing the check and my bank fraud section suggested I call the local FBI office. I spoke to an FBI internet fraud agent and was told that they are mostly after your account number which they will have as soon as you send a check to the contact they provide. If you have provided any of the validation paper they requested, they can, once they have your account number, issue an on demand withdrawal request and clean out your account.

I was advised to destroy the check and not respond to any further emails. I did respond to a their threat to run a background check on me, by telling them if they wanted their uncashed check back they could call the FBI via the number I provided.

Re: Xian Energy Sot LLC (check cashing scam)

Desopns

Do you happen to have the address in Houston?

The ultimate web host for many of the scam sites is in Houston, registered under a Russian-sounding name. I have tracked a lot of sites through re-sellers addresses to the Houston address, as well as a firm in Reno, registered to a person with the same last name, as a site registrant.

It takes a lot of time to do this tracking and if we can get enough site links, the FBI might be more interested. They apparently don't care much for single episodes.

Re: room for rent

Yes. Don't do it.

The check will turn out to be stolen, forged or counterfeited. It will be debited from your account for the full amount, leaving you out the money plus any and all associated fees.
