View Full Version : Gi2c & Getin2China China Internship Scam Via Pakistan & Fake London Office Confirmed...

05-13-2015, 02:31 AM

Sorry but I could not find the other thread and just wanted to confirm that most of the victims of this fraud were from Europe and about a third of them were solicited from a secret call center in Punjab Pakistan from sales people with fake names that include Barbara Wilson, Haley Gilbert, Dwight Stevens and Cliff Dunbar. The comments and complaints at these links disprove Gi2C claims that 1) they never said they had overseas offices, and 2) their bad reputation is false and only recently started in March of 2015. comments at these links and especially the screenshots I pasted below show they had issues in 2013 that clearly have nothing to do with neither "an envious competitor" nor "a disgruntled former employee" I think this is all of their own doing.

And these two links below have nothing to do with Pakistan but show there were complaints and victims going back to 2011 (read comments of user "Sullivan")

Gi2C: Get Into China - Internship Program | Wall Street Oasis (http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/gi2c-get-into-china-internship-program) and Get into China (GI2C) Internship Program | Wall Street Oasis (http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forums/get-into-china-gi2c-internship-program). Also remember that the owner of Gi2c is known to use hacker to corrupt the links to negative comments posted online and 39 such broken links were already found and a negative comment on their Facebook Page or blog has a life span of about 2-10 hours. Try it yourself and see what I mean. Just go either location and ask a legitimate question like "How many of you were cheated by Gi2c?" or "Did you see this blurb at realscam.com about the fake Gi2c London office?" and then wait a few hours to see magicians at Gi2C make your words disappear! http://scam-detector.com/forums/forum/employment-scams/428-gi2c-china-internship-scammers-hired-hackers-to-delete-negative-comments-on-internet

The Gi2c Beijing "Team" is listed and photographed on the Gi2C website. Where are the photos for Barbara Wilson, Haley Gilbert, Dwight Stevens, and Cliff Dunbar of the Gi2C Pakistan "Team"? And how many people in Pakistan really have English names like these 4 people? But probably the more important question is why does a company in Beijing recruit interns from a company in Pakistan and who makes those called believe they are calling from a Gi2C London Office that never existed, and then those that are reeled in are told to send their money to an HSBC bank in Hong Kong? The user "Ricky" at scam-detector.com thinks this arrangement is deliberately set up to make it impossible for the police in any one of those locations to arrest and prosecute the fraudsters. Where is the real crime committed? Beijing? Pakistan? Hong Kong? or London?

The Russian owner of Gi2c (Yuri Khlystov) maybe slick and sly, but he definitely is not stupid.

Yep. You got them Tank. I found even more proof as you can see from these 2013 screen captures below. There is also an indication they may have been owners or at least a beneficiary of another scam called "Better Careers" and that another call center in Singapore be be in play. Most of the China scam operators are now basing their boiler rooms in Vietnam and the Philippines to avoid legal jurisdiction in China and get cheap telesales people as a bonus. As you see below the Pakistanis only got $10 for every resume they were able to collect from European students who said they want to work in China. But there clearly is no real office for Gi2c now or at any time in the past - unless i t was in the name of the other scam "Better Careers".

WARNING! Scam, blackmailing, cyberterrorism by CFTU Anthony Bruce DiMarco aka DiCarlo (victims: Gi2C, CUCAS, CRCC Asia etc.) | the Beijinger (http://www.thebeijinger.com/forum/2015/04/20/warning-scam-blackmailing-cyberterrorism-cftu-anthony-bruce-dimarco-aka-dicarlo)

Five people now say they were called from the invisible "London Office" and the call back number they are given is 44 203 6087372 which just happens to ring in the Beijing office of Gi2c and is even answered by Yuri himself in the evening hours, but in his Russian accent he claims to be Paul Dodd, a former employee from the UK who left the company almost a year ago.

Also I was reading around the various forums and thebeijinger is still playing the censorship game - deleting any post that accuses or exposes Gi2c of fraud, but at another forum user max dug up a 5+ year history of complaints and link deletions by gi2c which was original known as "getin2china" and "better careers" See attached. Take note that the complaints below are froom 2010 and 2011 and 2012 - 3 years before the "disgruntled employee" was even hired!

I remind everybody of Anthony's confession on TheBeijinger.com

A quick reminder to anyone thinking about China Internships...

According to Chinese Visa laws most all China Internship programs for expats today are ILLEGAL (Read here CHINA: China Eliminates Internship and Training Visas for Most Foreign Students | Global Immigration News (http://totallyexpat.com/global-immigration-news/china-china-eliminates-internship-training-visas-foreign-students/)) And here is what can happen to you if you go through with a Gi2c program or any other illegal China intersnhip program: http://antifraudintl.org/threads/beware-of-china-internship-visa-scams.96692/

Any company or agent that asks you to pay any money - even $10 to get you a job or internship in China is a scam - period.

The good news is that the only legal internships in China are 100% FREE as explained in these links below.

As for the troll in this thread "Stefano" he has yet to prove anything he ever claimed, has accused admin and five long time realscam veteran users including Nomaxim, Whip, myself, Ribshaw, and Seattle, of being all the same person (because they disagreed with him) and is himself a convicted felon who created a fraud thread at thebeijinger where he impersonated five different people!

Also, anyone who examines thebeijinger situation will see that there were at one time, 167 posts, which have been censored down to roughly 70 in favor of protecting the reputation of an advertiser - Gi2C. See the attached for the latest deletion/edit job. 10837

Users at scam.comand eslwatch.info report that the Pakistani boiler room was closed down and recently replaced with one in the Philipines where they have no accents and the call center is cheaper to operate.
