Thread: Paradigm Solutions rep in here?

  1. #1

    Thumbs down Paradigm Solutions rep in here?

    I received a social engineering scam SMS from someone using a domain registered at Paradigm Solutions this morning.

    "Your cell# has been awarded $3Million USD from Halliburton/Euromillions UK. Kindly email Ray on [email protected]
    For info send name, address, cell"

    The cell number the sms came from was 0837427694 - according to truecaller, it's registered to Mandisa Cekiso. It could also be stolen. The whois details for the domain are below. I doubt those contact numbers for the registrant actually exist:

    Update from Paradigm...

    They can't do anything because the email address attached to the domain is not sending emails and the server does not appear to have anything illegal hosted.
    The client appears to have simply registered the domain name and used it to receive email, not send. They are sending SMS'
    Apparently the fact that the whois details provided by the client are not legit is not a concern of Paradigms.

    As long as South African service providers remain enablers for scamsters, they will continue to operate successfully in SA.

    In light of the medium (SMS) utilised to contact you, I suggest that you also consider reporting this matter to the Wireless Application Service Providers’ Association (WASPA), they deal with SMS scams and spam:

    With regards to your complaint to us, we have informed the client who makes use of this IP address on a self-managed private server. They have advised that this domain has been suspended in light of this incident.

    We trust this meets with your approval, should you require further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
