Numerous people have reportedly been ripped-off by Edward Powers (aka Epowers Cybercrime Investigators). He presents himself as an “investigator” who can help his clients reclaim money they lost using ClicksValley, ClickPapa, MaxBounty, BannerBit and other online marketing platforms.
First he is sending his targets a lot of fabricated evidence that he claims comes from these companies. This can include doctored payroll images and made-up information about the companies’ employees, offices and bank accounts.
After building a relationship with his clients in the first few weeks, he then asks to be paid $5000 or as much as $15000 to continue with his “investigation”. He wants his payments sent to someone named Clayton Peter Kaizer using the Western Union service. He then disappears with the funds and stops returning messages, as if the whole thing never happened.
He is taking advantage of people who have already lost money in online marketing platforms and HE SHOULD BE AVOIDED. He is not who he claims to be, so ask for proof-of-identity if you are tempted to work with him. Check his Facebook, passport/selfie and Linkedin. He won’t provide it because ‘Edward Powers’ is not a real person, just a scammer who is trying to take advantage of the most vulnerable people who have already lost money.
Share this info if you know someone who gets approached by anyone from ‘Epower Cybercrime Investigations’, it’s a rip-off and a fraud.
