The Difrawi & Bell phishing scam referral thread

Post by difrawi_defrawy » Tue Feb 09, 2010 8:47 pm

Ayman Ahmed el Difrawi (Alec Difrawi/Defrawi/Defrawy) & Ralph Edward Bell are long time partners in crime . After they finished working with Lou Pearlman on modeling scam Wilhelmina Scouting Network aka Trans Continental Talent aka Fashion Rock aka Talent Rock, they teamed up to start this new line of phishing scams in 2004. Modus Operandi: by purporting to offer career opportunities (that exist only remotely or not at all) they lure job seekers into providing their personal information.

First years the Difrawi & Bell operation targeted mainly wannabe models, musicians, dancers and writers, combining their deceptive lead generation with consumer- & franchise scams for fees. At that time most leads were raked in with hit & run spamruns by various completely non-existing "companies".

Later they broadened the target area to job seekers in general, and the scam evolved into offering most of their bogus services for free, only to obtain and sell the victims personal information. By spreading their mass-mailings over hundreds of fake company names and a high number of mail servers they manage to stay under the spam radar.

Since Internet Solutions Corporation (2007) their "main" company names were actually incorporated, most of them in Delaware. However, there is only one entity (whatever given names or addresses), located in the Orlando FL Metro West area.

Some traces of the scam's first versions early 2004 can be found via . Just google following domain names to gain some insight in the scam's history till 2008. Next post will contain a list of my contributions regarding their more recent activities. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Take no offense, but a former employee would be the last I would ask.
Since I don't no the reason of termination, be it by you or them.
Most likely would be a bias opinion.

That nobody has noted that the name "Defrawi" looks and sounds (when spoken aloud) like the word "Defraud-y"
