QNet: “It is a chain where a person is fooled and then he is trained to fool others to earn money” says Bombay HC order
The Bombay High Court while rejecting anticipatory bail applications of five accused in the multi-crore QNet scam continues –
“The motto of the company ‘sell more, earn more’ appears very attractive and innocuous. However, this motto is fully camouflaged. The company stands on a basic statement that people can be fooled. Thus, the true motto is ‘sell more earn more’ by fooling people. In fact it is a chain where a person is fooled and then he is trained to fool others to earn money. For that purpose, workshops are conducted where study and business material is provided with a jugglery of words, promises and dreams. Thus, the deceit and fraud is camouflaged under the name of e-marketing and business.”
Ever since this MLM scam blew open in India since 2013, numerous agencies have covered the case. There have been several arrests and legal action. However, the kingpins have remained in exile, evading arrests and legal consequences. These are some notable actors in this scam, and major incidents related to Qnet Scam –
- Vijay Eswaran – Prime suspect in Qnet scam in India – currently residing in Malaysia and evading arrest in India. Official Website – Wikipedia – scamming people under a new name – QI Group. This shameless guy was the founder of QNet India and responsible for most of the woes suffered by Indian victims.
- Ramya Chandrasekaran – linkedin , Facebook – Former head of communications for Qnet and figurehead in this fake DMCA scandal. Currently residing in USA and will soon be under investigation for her role in perjury and fraud.
- Pathman Senathirajah – Official Profile – Facebook – Chief promoter of Qnet in India – Wanted by the police, evading arrest.
However, let us now focus on what they did, and why did we investigated Qnet in the first place. After reading the above, it is no surprise that there has been a lot of (negative) coverage on Qnet and their multiple scams. News articles around arrests, police investigation, court proceedings and consumer outrage has severely damaged Qnet’s reputation, which limits their ability to operate globally and continue with their scams overseas.
So what would a criminal enterprise do to silence its critics ? Ofcourse, COMMIT ANOTHER CRIME. This time though, they and their associates went berserk with fake DMCAs and forged court orders. We have reported on fake DMCAs before. But never have we reported a single company for over 4 dozen fake DMCAs and court orders. OVER 50… That’s some serious attempt to clean up Google.
So let’s examine the fake DMCAs filed by Qnet’s PR team –
The above are just a few examples of fraud, perjury and impersonation by Qnet and their associates, in order to hide negative news stories and general outrage against them. The reason ? Qnet and their sister companies are looking to secure bank loan and investment, and a regular background check by authorities might screw their ambitions. They have been on a war-footing to raise funds in South East Asia, Russia and Europe and can go to any lengths to mitigate the damage done online. Even if it means fake DMCAs, forged court orders and dozens of new crime committed by their PR team.
At this time, we;re asking questions. We’ll be contacting them for an explanation into the fake DMCAs and court orders. Our second step would be to ensure that any and all content removed using illegal methods are republished, with Google ranks restored. We will then contact the victims of these fake DMCA notices to investigate each individual infringement and publish about them. Finally, we’ll contact all the banks and investors and send them a copy of our detailed investigation into each and every DMCA filed, and alert them of Qnet’s intention.
Lastly, we’re going to market this story extensively. We welcome the victims of Qnet to start commenting on this story, as well as share their grievance on Webactivism.com. We have secured QnetFraud.com from a victim of Qnet scam in India, and will be developing it as a one-stop platform for victims of Qnet to publish on.
We have declared WAR on Qnet, and this is just the beginning.
