Excuse the rushed layout, I was just replying to somebody in this scam's thread and thought I'd better put up a scam report so the intertoobs can find it and stop these douchebags from conning too many people.


There are elements to this which are quite intriguing, from an analysis point of view.
If it is a scam, there's been some interesting work put into it.
Will have an in depth look soon.

It is and there has.

This is a new spin on the 'UK Incorp' scam. This time the scamming douchebags are using somebody else's company details and fake facebook walls.

Firstly, have yourself a search for "TX3 Arbitrage" in quotes and you'll see the grand total of one and a half pages of search results. Sure the first page looks like there are more but that's just Google messing with you because they don't like to show limited results. Click on page 2 and you'll see there are no more to be had beyond that point apart from repeated instances of the same domain results. The majority of which occur only within the last few weeks.

Any results which are dated prior to 2016 are either hits from old forum threads which are nothing to do with TX3 where you'll see a 'new' thread in the list below the aged post about TX3 dated within the last few days, or they are from the scammers own website.

As for, "Adam James Cornwell, Founder/CEO of TX3"

Let's take a quick look, shall we?

First, the company tx3.co claims Mr Adam James Cornwell to be the Founder/CEO of:

Versus the actual directors:

Secondly, tx3.co claiming themselves to be a five-year operational Bitcoin arbitrage/investment company, versus what they actually do:
Quote


Do not be fooled by the facebook timeline, it can easily be faked and if you look through it there's very little in the way of likes and most seem to come from the same people.

BTW, 'TX3' we've already called you out on your crap English, but just as a point, with regards to your obvious stream of fake historic posts, it isn't "Mr Obama" because he was already President and was re-elected, you should have referred to him as "President Obama". Something all educated Americans would know.

The use of the Columbian .co address, couple with the slick use of fake historical hits on Google makes me think of Roman Parra, the Recyclix scammer who just had his Columbian Bitcoin exchange shut down.

Currently having a ding-dong with the scammers tripping over themselves and getting their excuses all wrong:

@cryptodevil

To answer to your claims, TX3 Solutions Limited owns several businesses, and TX3 Arbitrage - Bitcoin Arbitraging is one of many sub businesses owned by TX3 Solutions Limited.

And please understand the difference between 'CEO', 'Director' and 'Secretary'.

As for your claims regarding to "apps and games published by TX3 Solutions" " http://allaboutwindowsphone.com/software/developer/Tx3-Solutions.php". we are not associated to them.


Awwww, ain't you cute, tryin' to be all clever!

Ok scammer, firstly CEO stands for "Chief Executive Officer" with the 'Executive Officer' part denoting somebody who is listed as a company director on the statutory docs which are filed with Companies House.

TX3 Solutions only has one director and he isn't your fake "Mr Adam James Cornwell"
TX3 Solutions only has one shareholder and he isn't your fake "Mr Adam James Cornwell"

Both the director and shareholder are listed as Matthew SCHERBA who is also director of some other companies which you can drill through to from his name. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/officers/lZT2hkUdfUKeS7uY5nCL2-qzVAI/appointments

Two of which are:
PLANCENTRIC GLOBAL LIMITED (08918690)
PLANCENTRIC LIMITED (07448872)

Hmmm, Plancentric, unusual word, I wonder where I've seen it before. . .

Oh yes! I remember now:
Quote


So, what was that you were saying about not being associated with the TX3 Solutions Ltd, software developers?

Although it's a blatant passing off scam, I'm intrigued by the amount of work that's gone into some aspects of it, mainly the Facebook pages.
I couldn't work out why I wasn't getting any matches on some of their claimed pics, then the penny dropped.....they're reversing them.  Roll Eyes

Example #1



As you can see from their blurb, TX3 claim this to be taken in 2013 in Central Europe.
Note their logo on the sail.

If you reverse the image, you find that it was in fact taken at a KPMG shindig in Hong Kong.
Note their logo on the sail.



I have a feeling that the other faked conference/meeting pics that the TX3 scammers have used will also probably be found in the same website's archives, but I haven't had time to check myself.
I am getting the feeling from a couple of other pointers, that HK may be the origin of this scam.

Also, on the faked image you can see where I have hovered the cursor, that although the post is pretending to be from 24th Feb 2013, it was in fact added a couple of weeks ago.

Similarly, if you go the the famous but not famous Mr. Cornwell's FB you will see on his friendless profile



Apart from the obvious absurdity of a VP at JPM posting on FB, "Left job", the dates..... Shocked

Just a quick bump for this TX3 scam, if you fancy a laugh go and have a look at the totally real  Roll Eyes reviews they are writing for themselves on the totally untrustworthy TrustPilot.

Report of these reviews being fake and links to evidence of how this Colombian domain is fraudulently imitating an unconnected UK-registered company sent to compliance@trustpilot.com

Good luck with that.
TrustPilot appear not to be interested in whether the reviewed schemes are legit or not, only that reviewers can prove they have actually dealt with them (by providing some meaningless reference).
A bit like when you press the "Scam" report button with Facebook, and you get "Oh well, you can block them if you like".
They don't care that they are facilitating scammers, too busy with their clickbait shit.

Just a bump with a couple of pretty pictures, one fake, one real.
The fake comes from TX3's totally made up Facebook page, the real one from a photo gallery site in India.
The Facebook page is laughably unreal, 9,900+ bought 'likes', but no more than one or two for each padding post.





Jury's out on TrustPilot, they say they are investigating TX3 but haven't pulled their obviously fake listing yet.

Got a couple of other enquiries being answered soon, but apart from meaningless FB updates, this scam looks pretty dead in the water....
