50% utility / loan /mortgage / discount bill is a scam. Stay away from them and don’t share any information. They are operating from Lahore, Pakistan. And only target Indian origin Hindi/Panjabi speaking people in USA, Canada, Australia, and UK. You can easily test them by asking any Hindu religion related questions.
NOTE: If you have transferred money to their US/Australian/Canada/UK bank account, please share that information with the law enforcement agency / FBI as soon as possible. Report them to the FBI through https://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx.
CDS Bureau published two articles on 50% off utility bill scam. Now these scammers have launched another site TheDiscountInc.com. This site is not same as the other ones but operated by the same scammers because it has same (but fake) physical address and copied from discountzoneinc.com. discountzoneinc.com site is now out of service. TheDiscountInc.com domain name was registered in Jan 23, 2020, while the site claims that the business is in existence since 2005.
This site now offers investment and insurance services also. These services are scam. CDS Bureau highly recommends not to share any information with them and send no money to them. If you apply a loan with them, you’ll compromise your identity.

When they call, they talk in your mother tongue to gain your confidence. Recently they hired a few female operators. Don’t fall for their soft and friendly tone. When they call, you can hear many scammers trying to scam people in the background.
Anyone can make payment to your account with your account information and later reverse that payment. Never fall for them. They try to build trust by talking in Punjabi or Urdu. They recently hired very cunning sales girls whose only focus is to scam money out of a victim.
CDS Bureau highly recommends to avoid their call and NEVER share your information with them. If you share your mobile phone account information, they can register their own phone in your name and do irreversible damage to your bank account and personal information. CDS Bureau can not publish all the details due to our responsibility towards general consumers. But if you have been a victim, email us at contact(at)cdsbureau.com to know more about your options.
