And here is the fake stealth phone sold on eBay by witz.end.solutions:
What you have to do, just to make sure you will not buy from a scammer, a fake stealth phone? Nothing complicated: avoid fakes by buying from official distributors or directly from manufacturer.
Recently discovered new stealth phones scam on blackstone-security.jimdo.com have some pretty funny "pluses" than other competitor scammers. They claim that the stealth phone they sell have no more that 10 (yes, ten!) "clandestine operational functions", as you can see on the picture above.
There is the same old scam: a cracked and non working firmware installed on wrong cell phones (Samsung G600) that will give you only a cell phone that looks like a stealth phone but with no working functions. Sounds familiar? Sure it does: we have revealed this scam since last year.
This sneaky scammer is trying to mislead buyers by selling the same 7 functions stealth phone firmware installed on Samsung G600 cell phones, by simply inventing some additional functions. The firmware used to make his counterfeit stealth phones is absolutely the same as the one you can download for free from our website, for testing purposes: click here to download 7 functions Samsung G600 firmware.
Lame: copy/paste scammer
What else the lame scammer did? Well, proving that he is a lazy ass, an ignorant when it comes to websites or just a little theft (we think that he is a bit of all), he stole the text and pictures from the x-cellular.com website. Looks familiar? Sure it does: there was another scammer who stole text and pictures from the original manufacturer website, called Sohail Hussain aka Steven Adams (Jd Mobile Unlocking Service, private held company). Click here for more info.
Selling fake stealth phones is something, but stealing from others is something else. But when you put all together this facts, the only conclusion you can get is that the scammer have no idea about how things are done on cellphone interception field and have no idea on how stealth phone works. Buying from this scammer is like buying medicine from a quack and not from a pharmacy.
We had a bit of fun with this copy/paste scammer: seeing that he copied also the "About Us" text from x-cellular.com (including pics) and pretending to have a "background in signal intelligence and direct experience of working with GSM, Security phones developers had a significant head start", we have sent him a mail asking simple programming questions, just to make sure he knows at least Java programming language which is also the language used to build the stealth phone firmware. No reply whatsoever, and we'll not expect one by obvious reasons. There are no developers related to this scam. In fact there is no team at all, but only a scammer trying to fool people.
And sure, they claim (actually a text copied from x-cellular.com website) that "the development staff consists of individuals spanning different languages, regions, industries, and nationalities. We are experts in offensive GSM security , cybercrime and security intelligence." Experts...
The scammer is selling also his counterfeit stealth phones on eBay, under the nickname www-kpex-de
And yes, the scammer call all this scams as "Advanced Solutions". No doubt, those are solutions to get some money from ignorant people.
What other scam he sell?
Remember the Anonymous SIM card scam that we have revealed last year? Well, based on the principle "monkey see, monkey do", this scammer is selling sell so called anonymous SIM cards, as the other scammers do. No doubt, there is one thing that scammer knows: how to copy others. And he think that is the business key to success. Or at least to have some pocket money that comes from uninformed or ignorant buyers.
You can have the complete picture of the scam developed on blackstone-security.jimdo.com when you realize that the webstore has been built on a free platform. (jimdo.com). Why that? Someone who sell security solutions (and not any solutions but "advanced solutions" as he claim) cannot afford a domain name and a decent website when (probably) selling products worth hundreds of euro? Or does he hide his ass under the anonymity offered by a free platform website? Whatever the reasons are, you have to avoid buying from this scammer.
A clear thing, you can not buy security from someone who steal the others hard work, selling cracked/unlicensed firmware and having no idea about how cell phone interception works, pretending to be "a team of skilled programmers".
Update (22nd November 2015):
Realizing that his scam has been revealed, the scammer did the same as the one who ran imeichanger.com, antitap.com and secretgsm.com: has closed down the website located at http://blackstone-security.jimdo.com/
Following our marketing advice, the scammer has bought from jimdo.com his own domain name (antispymob.com), and now he is redirecting the visitors to his new website, called http://www.antispymob.com/
Apparently the scammer will continue to run his scams on this new website. We will keep you informed about future scam development.
On the scammer eBay account (User ID www-kpex-de) he uses a stolen picture from x-cellular.com website, trying to mislead buyers that the fake phones he sell are enabled with "New updated GUI interface". Despite the fact that he have no idea what GUI means, he is fool enough to use the Xcell logotype on the phone homescreen when selling his fake stealth phones. This is why anyone should ask him before buying about XCell security seals on the phone backside. Just ask him to send you a photo with the phone backside, along with phone IMEI number. Then you can simply ask XCell guys is that details are genuine or not. Simple as that.
Just to make sure that we're not wrong, we have contacted XCell Technologies, asking if they have any reseller within Germany and The Netherlands. The answer was negative, there is no XCell reseller for these counties. You can do the same, asking about Germany and The Netherlands XCell reseller: you will get the same response.
However, the scammer is trying to hide behind a company called Ennetcom (http://www.detectnu.nl/?page=http%3A//detectnu.home.xs4all.nl/opdrachtform.htm) pretending that the fake stealth phones he sell are manufactured by detectnu.nl.
And here comes the ridiculous lie: how can a company like Ennetcom that sell only BlackBerry secure solutions (and not even the phones itself), a company that is not talking nor offer any dynamic IMEI phones, manufacturing dynamic IMEI phones and sell them only on a eBay account and (until few days ago) on an obscure and dubious web page?! You cannot see any references about dynamic IMEI phones on the Ennetcom (detectnu.nl) web page. Lets be honest: Ennetcom (detectnu.nl) are not at all manufacturers but only a BlackBerry solutions resellers, and nothing else.
No doubt, there is a logical fracture in the scammer thoughts: there is no manufacturer that is not selling his products on his own website, but only other companies products. Make sense to you?
And yes, there is another stupid thing that the scammer is trying to promote: a stealth phone which have the XCell Technologies logotype (the famous X), manufactured by detectnu.nl, a company that in a strange mode, does not say anything about dynamic IMEI stealth phones and actually does not produce anything but only reselling Blackberry secure services. Does it make any sense for you?
As a "very serious" and professional business that "produce" sell a lot of "secure" cell phones, guess what else this scammer is selling to make some pocket money: paintball masks and USB cables. A veritable businessman that is doing businesses on a large scale. Expect a professional customer service and explanations from someone that is selling this king of products? We hope not.
One last thing: a website will never be a manufacturer, as the scammer claim. But only a manufacturing company can produce something. A website is only a marketing platform, a web store.
A new seller on eBay, a new stealth phone scam: this time, seller ID is allbuynew.
Unlike other scammers that sell fake Samsung G600 stealth phones, this one pretends to sell the original version of XCell Stealth Phone. How he did that? Very simple: by copying XCell website pictures and text, on his eBay account. A hilarious thing: probably having no skills or basic knowledge regarding photo manipulation, nor money to hire a web designer, he has posted the photos with XCell watermark on them:
On the picture below you can have fun about what this scammer has understood from explanations that he has read on x-cellular.com:
The most funny thing is that the scammer has invented 10 "special features", selling this way not the "old" version but a new one, "updated Jan. 2014".
In his personal understanding, UnPing function is an alert for "network triangulation", which is obviously wrong.
No explanations about Channel lock, since XCell Technologies (the manufacturer of real stealth phones) has understood to disclose the use of this function only to users. The scammer has no source to copy these explanations, so he didn't posted them.
He is right in just one of his affirmations: "the best and the only one" is the stealth phone that he try to copy: XCell Stealth Phone.
Just to have more fun with this scammer, you should ask him for a pic, taken from the phone backside: there is no XCell security label. Also, you should ask him before buying, about how Channel lock function work, UnPing function and how to properly use IMEI changing function. And yes, his explanations about how to use the phone and how call interception work, will be memorable. Have fun!
Visiting his eBay store, we have found that the scammer (allbuynew) is selling also another well known scam:
That being said, we think that the photo above and the products he sell are self explanatory regarding the trust you shouldn't have.
Or you should ask for buy one, get one free: buy one fake stealth phone, get one penis extender, for free.
We have identified another two scammers on eBay, selling counterfeit Samsung G600 stealth phones and fake Samsung G600 stealth firmware (the one that you can download for free, here).
danielius2010 Located in Lithuania, selling fake Samsung G600 stealth firmware on eBay:
swetroop Located in London UK, selling counterfeit Samsung G600 stealth phones:
This time the scammer is trying to fool you by posing innocent and genuine: he sell a phone that does not know how it works (but it sells), although claiming to be an experienced repairman when it comes about cell phones. This is what he say about the "stealth phone" he sell:
"We came across one of these handset's in a job lot purchase and it took us a day or two to realise how special it was.
For a repairman, it took quite long. Moreover, we are sure that even now he have no idea how phone work, since he nave no clue about how cellular interception work.
We are now reproducing these handsets, via the software that was loaded on it.
He wanna say that he is reproducing now a fake stealth phone.
We have not used these handsets, so do not know how to use the settings of the features, we recommend you do some research on the internet or read the link that was in the listing.
If he have no clue about how settings need to be done, how will deliver customer service? This looks like a smart way to sell a fake stealth phone: "we do not know how to use it".
The Special features do not work with Vodafone or Lebara sim cards.
Wrong. Vodafone SIM cards work with no problem, no matter if contract or prepay. But there is a thing that he don't know about what SIM cards are compatible with XCell Stealth Phone.
Prior to dispatch we wipe down all handsets with a baby wipe, to clean the handset and fragrance them.
This is the most important thing when it comes about cell phone security: to be fragrant. This is the most hilarious one.
Now you can realise the level of knowledge have an eBay seller that pretends to have a solid background in repairing, unlocking and servicing of mobile phones, since 2009:
Have fun here.
