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 Hindi/Panjabi speaking people. You can easily test them by asking any Hindu religion related questions.
NOTE: If you have transferred money to their US/Australian/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.
Update: CDS Bureau and its users have forced the scammers to shutdown their website but they registered a new domain utilityplaninc.com. More info here.
One of CDS Bureau users notified us about UTILITYPLANSINC.COM scam. CDS Bureau did the investigation and found the website to be a scam website. It has many issues that normally scam websites have. They are using stolen images from the Internet. This website stole Founder James John’s photograph from bentley.edu. Supervisor Rohan Verma’s photograph is of Wayfair CEO Niraj Shah. And the list goes on.
This domain is registered on Jan 7, 2020, but the website claims that they have been in business since 2010. Website footer had copyright for another domain name utilityplansca.com. But when we tried to visit that site, the site did not exist. It appears that these scammers are running this scam since 2010. They normally speak in Punjabi or Urdu and target South Asian communities of USA.
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.
