kenzo Yes I am sure you are right, Brian and his co-conspirators will "pump & dump" every phone number, company and domain that get's too hot, that is their MO and they have done it before.
In October 2017 Brian Cotter (using his US home address in Glendale, CA) registered "Premium Techie Support UK Ltd.", In January 2019 a "Notice for Compulsory Strike-Off" was sent to the UK Registered Office stating; "unless cause is shown to the contrary, at the expiration of 2 months from the above date the name of PREMIUM TECHIE SUPPORT UK LIMITED will be struck off the register and the company will be dissolved. Upon dissolution all property and rights vested in, or held in trust for, the company are deemed to be bona vacantia, and accordingly will belong to the crown." In April 2019 the company was compulsory struck-off and dissolved. The documents can be seen here: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/11020761/filing-history
Ice Mugger's excellent Network Map is striking visual proof of the intricate web of obfuscation and deceit PTS has employed to obfuscate the fact that all these Scams lead back to one Call Center, One Company and Two CEO's: Brian Cotter and Anuj Jain.
To answer your second question Kenzo, I am in no doubt that Brian was not just laundering money for PTS but directing their operations, in conjunction with Anuj Jain. Their partnership of fraud goes back to at least 2012, when they set-up "Sensei Ventures Incorporated" together, as well as "Tech Live Connect" where Brian can be seen admitting to be CEO and Co-founder and with Anuj Jain, at the call center in India, from Jim Browning's excellent video.
The problem for Brian now however, is he has been sloppy. Despite trying to use his middle name we (and through us, his victims) are onto him. He has left a huge digital footprint online. Let us look at some facts:
Jim Browning's original video and countless other testimonies make it quite clear PTS routinely uses deception and lies to defraud on a huge scale and right now they are trying to recruit and expand, seeking to hire japanese speaking call center agents.
Brian Cotter's linked-in ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/briancotter ) also displays his status as CEO of Tech Live Connect Pte Ltd. and his job experience reveals clues to his Tech Support Scam roots. In 2003 he worked for a company focused on anti-malware technology. In 2007 he worked for an India based outsourcing/offshoring company.
Brian Cotter lives in $ 1.45 million house, donated $ 2 million to the Scientologists in 2014, and $ 1.75 million in 2019. Yet when he was listed as the US "Branch Manager" for "Tech Live Connect Pte Ltd." at his Glendale offices, documents show a meager $ 64k turnover. So how was he able to buy that house in 2014 and make those huge donations to Scientology? Perhaps the Tax authorities and FBI could shed some light on that!
