In researching spam posted to the Freakipedia links to lease-a-seo.com started cropping up. It looks like lease-a-seo.com may be the organization responsible for spamming the Freakipedia. A list of links being spammed and some detail on those sites can be found in the Pillsm.com article.

Research shows multiple company names affiliated with this post spammer, a typical tactic of con artists. In addition to link spamming such as what's been used to attack the Freakipedia, it looks like the spammers are also engaging in wire fraud with a fake "mystery shopper" scam. In this scam they send a fake check to a "mystery shopper" and have them send back a portion of the money they THINK is being deposited.

DDOS attack against wickedfire.com

Lease-a-seo.com and Jest Staffel were implicated in a May, 2011 DDOS attack against wickedfire.com. If the information at wickedfire.com is accurate Staffel used his corporate servers to launch the Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attack.

Use of Sock Puppets

The Lease-a-seo.com strategy of using sock puppet accounts for Wiki vandalism appears to be a pattern. It's alleged Jest Staffel used multiple usernames to attack a competitor on wickedfire.com

Scamtracers

The Scamtracers review of lease-a-sec.com has the following report:

Our company bought multiple packages from lease-a-seo.com for search engine optimization. The owner of the company, Jest Staffel, was very competent of what we were looking for. Everything started off just fine. We signed the contract, and paid our 4500.00 for 4 packages. The deadline we agreed on was 2 weeks. 7 weeks later after numerous attempts to get a hold of Jest Staffel, our reports were sent. After going through the reports, we could tell there was some serious problems. All of our reports had numerous broken links. Page rank was not correct based on the package we bought. On top of that, our links were placed on highly spammed websites, which included viagra links, illegal prescription drugs, etc. Our rankings in google dropped off the map. After asking for our links to be taken down and for a refund, we were unable to communicate with lease-a-seo.com, and still have not received any follow up about our refund - this has been ongoing for 3 weeks now. STAY FAR AWAY FROM LEASE-A-SEO.COM.

The above report is consistent with what's been seen of the spam being posted to Freakipedia and the Wikis to which that spam often links.

Jest Staffel

The Scamtracers review gave us the name Jest Staffel. The site seomoz.org also connects the name Jest Staffel to the URL Lease-a-seo.com. Like the domain registration for seomoz.org gives the Philippines as the site's location.

They advertise on Craigs List for people to go and do retail surveys. After they get your name and address they Express Mail a fake check. Mine was for $ 2, 500.00. focusgroups@lilomarketing.com Sharon Bayram is the one who sends the survey asking your to conduct one on Western Union by wiring the money to London. The check is fake with a real company name and real bank. Hay Group Phil PA and PNC Bank Phil PA, but account number is fake. FBI is aware of this scam they have been on the east coast of the US now in Florida.

In reality the initial deposit is fake and will not clear. In this specific case victims were directed to send money to:

An Internet marketing site has a profile matching the name[1]

A linkedin page for Suet Cheah identifies Suet Cheah as:

Learning Vista's home page [2] is a flash heavy site that takes close to 30 seconds to load over broadband. It features a brown box that makes an annoying, high pitched "boing" sound when you mouse over it and when the flash animation loads. The site was deemed too annoying to warrant further investigation.
