Don Juravin Exposes Credit Card Scams Using 500 eBay and PayPal Transactions DEFRAUDING $2 MILLION

Don Juravin Exposes: $2 million defrauding PayPal and eBay with 500 fake accounts and transactions done by Vietnamese man from CA. Don Karl Juravin revealed.
From about 2013 through August of 2019, Ho was able to use bank accounts to the fraudulent PayPal accounts to receive more than 500 deposits totaling more than $2 million. The FBI and Carmel police raid on Thursday was connected to a $2 million fraud. Tuong Quoc Ho, 32, is accused of an elaborate credit card scheme using eBay and PayPal.
“Card-not-present” credit, debit and prepaid card fraud has ballooned in the United States in the last few years, reaching $4.57 billion in 2016, up 34 percent from the year before, according to the most recent Federal Reserve Payments Study . These shadowy crimes hurt both small businesses and the customer shopping experience.
He is now facing 28 federal counts including wire fraud, aggravated identity theft, credit card fraud and money laundering.

Don Juravin Exposes: Fake Documents

According to court documents, Ho was able to get names, addresses, social security numbers and credit card numbers for people. He would then create accounts on eBay and PayPal using those names. In some cases, Ho would purchase items on eBay with fraudulent accounts he had setup or credit cards and have those items sent to his home. He would then resell them.

How Did He Defrauded PayPal?

When PayPal would question an account, Ho would get fraudulent documents on the internet to keep the accounts open. That information included bills, passports and social security cards.
Crooks obtain credit card information by stealing it right from the card or buying it on the massive online marketplace for stolen cards on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube as well as the dark Web, a separate network that can’t be reached with normal browsers.
Ho would then transfer the money from the PayPal accounts into his personal bank accounts. Ho then wired money to family and friends in Vietnam, and used the money for personal expenses, including the purchase of his home in Carmel.
“Recent figures suggest that over 80 percent of credit cards currently in people’s wallets have already been compromised,” said Markus Bergthaler, director of programs and marketing for the nonprofit Merchant Risk Council, which educates businesses on strategies to curtail fraud.
On Feb. 21, the FBI and Carmel police served a federal search warrant at his home near 116th and Towne Road. “These charges are the result of a complex international investigation conducted jointly by FBI Indianapolis’ Cyber Intrusion Program and the Carmel Police Department working in partnership to put an end to Mr. Ho’s illegal activity that targeted hundreds of victims,” said Special Agent in Charge Grant Mendenhall, FBI Indianapolis. Ho faces up to 20 years’ imprisonment, three years of supervised release and a maximum fine of $250,000.

Christmas advert for sale on eBay for 99p to help independent retailers


NEW Christmas advert for sale on eBay
Advert launched to promote independent retailers

December 2019 – In today’s world, there has been a shift away from independent merchants and market stalls towards high street brands, leaving many struggling to thrive in a saturated market. Big players spend millions of pounds every year on Christmas marketing campaigns and mass-produced, generic products.

Putting smaller business back in the spotlight creative and production agency, HELL YEAH! has created a Christmas advert and will be selling copies on eBay for £0.99. Each copy will then be personalised with the independent retailer’s own logo, all with the intention of encouraging people to support local businesses, rather than getting carried away by heavy, emotional marketing.

eBay listing: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/283704606453

The video opens with a young boy gazing lovingly at a photo of his mum, played by renowned actor, writer and comedian Annie McGrath, who wrote and starred in Channel 4’s Girls Go Trolling and ITV2’s @elevenish. The young boy proceeds to pull a gift from under his bed and we witness his struggle to wrap the present. Christmas Day arrives, and the boy gives a dodgily-wrapped package to his emotional, very surprised mum. She opens the gift and the angelic Christmas singing which has played throughout stops abruptly. She blasts her son with a tirade full of expletives (beeped out) to express her disappointment at the generic gift bought from a high street chain. The scene closes with a shot of the dad, played by Henry Perryment, one half of critically acclaimed sketch comedy double act GoodBear, who tells his son that his mother is right and concedes that ‘it is a bit s**t’.

“The Christmas ad space is dominated by cheesy, tear jerky films. We wanted to mix it up and add a twist to this tried and tested formula. We hope the film will encourage people to support their local businesses this Christmas.” Dulcie Cowling, Creative Director – HELL YEAH!

“Small businesses sit at the heart of what we do and we’re passionate about ensuring entrepreneurs have the opportunity to flourish on our platform, and beyond. Christmas is a crucial trading period for independent retailers, so we’re delighted to support Hell Yeah! on this project to showcase the best of small business and help them to engage new audiences” Rob Hattrell, Vice President – eBay UK
