Fastel Communication

Dear VoIP Partners and VOIP circle,
beware of Fastel Communication (CEO & Owner: Ehab Sabet) for pending payment and lies and not answering our calls, e-mails or imo, whatsapp viber etc… They are blocking us (GEM Group Services LTD.) wherever we talk to Ehab.
Their due to us is 4500$ and they promised to open Cuba and Tunisia and Egypt routes for us with no success… Then Mr. Ehab Sabet said he will pay on Sunday 1000$ then on Monday 2000$ and balance of 1500$ on Thursday. He blocked us and informed a common person we both know Ehab that his customer Cost Master did not pay him the invoice of 7700$ and he is not answering and delaying the payment for us and we did not get any $ from him and when you ask him he say: "Please hold I will open route", and on testing we get a FAS route …

AMITG / Telcoglobe

Dear partners,
please be aware of AMITG / Telcoglobe.
We worked with this company since Q2 2014 and up till September 2016 all payments were done promptly. In September, they started one dispute, which was based on their manager`s issue.  Alongside this, they declined to make payment until the dispute was concluded. As this was a clear sign of some issues, to be able to collect at least part of the amount we accepted for the latter to be split 50/50. It is important to mention that the issue was based on a negligence from their manager`s side.
We received partial payment in October after which the amount due was ~15K. We had one route open which we managed to offset the amount down to 3K on ASR of 1% and below.
Last month this route dropped and we started to request some other route or payment, but we got only reply that they have no active routes, and the promise that if they recover, they will cover the amount due. This is a think, that we highly doubt.
Our point of contact was Mr. Avinash Sharma - www.linkedin.com/in/avinash-sharma-31145059/
His e-mail is -  finance@telcoglobe.com
Currently they do not reply to our e-mails and phone calls.

We firstly interconnected with this company in Aug 2015 on conditions of 7 net 7 billing, $3000 as a minimum payment and $10000 of credit limit based on the agreed business case. The company did not have any payment problems from the start and arranged 5 timely payments, until March 2016 when current debt emerged.
The due amount was accumulated for only two days in the beginning of March 2016, when traffic rocketed, so that balance exceeded the Credit Limit by 5 times and we were forced to block them.
 

Security threats

Dear Partners,
There has been a surge of phishing attacks on VoIP companies employees recently, and we want to share our preventive security recommendations to keep your VoIP business safe. Intrusion attempts follow a pattern of gaining user's access credentials in order to get access to VoIP platforms user works with.

In few words, phishing is a term for attack aimed at gaining access to user's logins and passwords by messages, links or files pretending to not be what they actually are. The most common type of phishing is e-mail/IM-based one, involving malicious executable file attached. File can be sent from both unknown sender or from account of already compromised contact - it is often disguised as rate sheet or interconnection offer.

Warning! Typical malicious file is an executable - script with ".wsf" or ".vbs" extension (or even less exotic ".ps1", ".bat") - opening such file without knowing its contents is extremely dangerous. Don't let its name fool you, these files can't ever contain rate sheet data or office document of some sort. Once run, it registers itself in OS and listens to user actions and sends application data to attacker (finds e-mail access credentials, contacts, browser history, etc.).
With all of that, hacker is able to use acquired data to login into users' accounts in different systems. The main attack vector is VoIP companies employees since intruder has specific intention of adding third-party IP addresses into routing settings to send fraud traffic, so the whole scheme is designed to work this way. After one attack is successful, he is trying to spread the exploit by sending it to other people from user's contacts hoping they'll be careless enough to accept and open the file.

Mohamed Shakaf Ahamed Mohideen - Director of Links Tec Limited

Dear Partners,
Please be aware of this fraudster Mohamed Shakaf Ahamed Mohideen - Director of Links Tec Limited, who owes us (Aqua Mobile Limited) a total amount of $5832.78 for VoIP traffic since the year 2014.
He has given us so many promises to settle the outstanding, but always defaults. He has now started ignoring our phone calls all together.
He is now attached to another VoIP company and lives in the U.K. We advice all partners to take care when dealing with him.
We are in the process of preparing for legal action against him in order to recover the money owed to us. If he does pay it in full, we will inform everyone the same and request for this complaint to be removed.
Thank you.
