    Post MagniRack.co.uk SCAM. Anyone else get this?


    This person adds me on MSN out of the blue and asks me if I want to be his partner in a company and he will make me rich. So I basically say something like, why do you need me, how did you find me. About an hour goes and he says never mind not interested in you anymore.

    Then today (the next day) he starts talking to me and actually sounds like he might have a clue what he is talking about, so I ask for a bit more information and it turns out he wants me to buy a company with him for $2000 each.

    He gives me the domain name of the business for sale (not listing but it is active on these forums). Then after I ask for more information and say I am willing to sign a NDA he asks if I am "sure" I want to buy this company with him and if I am interested the details shouldn’t matter because I should trust my partner! Lol

    At this point I just laughed and said before a dollar leaves my hand I would need to talk to the current owner of the business on the phone. The scammer decides to turn on the bipolar switch and then starts questioning my business experience and then calls me a ‘Noob’

    I’m glad these scammers are easy to pick apart when they are young, it’s the educated ones that will get us down the line.

    I think you have got mistaken. I dont think Magnirack owner's are scammer's. He stated to me he has told you what he said.

    He asked you if you where intrested buying a company with him. But he changed his mind and is buying it himself.
    Guess writing stuff which are not apportiate should be told!

    Are you his friend? or that is you?

    He also contacted me via msn but with different questions. But I felt he want something so I gave him a frank question.

    So, care to share what is your relationship with him?

    Well, you should tell your close friend that it is not good to add a person in his msn without authorization.

    Some users do not like it and it has a negative impact.

    Just my little advice.

    I have the owner of Magnirack on my MSN, and he asked me about buying a company for $2000 with over 295 users (really? I doubt it). But I didn't accept

    Same here some guy, Muhammed who preferred to be called Mo, from MagniRack contacted me over MSN on 4/6/2008, he told me he is one of the Director's, first he wanted to sell me dedicated server, I told him I am not interested. Then he asked me how many clients I've got, then he offered to sell me some cheap hosting design, then on 4/8/2008 the guy asked me "you wanna sell your clients".

    What could have been an answer to all of the above:

    Simply NO.

    <sarcasm>You people are out of your minds. If someone adds you to MSN and offers you a company for only $2000.00, you should definitely take it. It's always been my marketing technique.</sarcasm>

    What has those got to do with Magni?
    This is stupid. He has told me to say sorry to everyone for adding & disturbing. If he has hurt you in anyway.

    I have talked to the director of Cergo Hosting, he said that magnirack.co.uk has put in a bid and I have asked him if he is aware that magnirack.co.uk is spamming people on msn to buy this company and he said no and there bid was removed.

    You worked for them too at one stage.

    Why are you talking in the third person?

    Oh I found it, by the way it is on SitePoint Marketplace.

    Cergo, why don't you put the details also in this forum as your current customers might be interested as well in knowing that the company hosting them is now for sale?

    Indeed strange anyway, you were posting here in this forum about hiring ppl and customer support not even 2 weeks ago, and now you sell a "company" which seems registered in UK as a PLC (Public Limited Company) since... January 2008? Am I right?

    On the top of that you're including in the "sale" WebHostingTalk forum accounts? And "some" company domains?




    Anyway... think guys, think.

    Thanks for informing us about it.
    Maybe a good thing to find some references next time before making purchases.

    A. Our customers are aware
    B. Cergo PLC is not for sale, our hosting, clients and designs are.

    Read facts before you start attacking.

    Companies auction off sections which are loosing the whole company money.

    Cergo PLC does web design from locations in canada and uk and cergovps is taking too much of our time away from design, and not earning the revenue to cover that loss. Therefore we are auctioning it to a company which we screen and who will look after both our clients and our name CergoVPS as well as we do.

    On what base you write that it's a good deal?

    By reading that "auction", the thread and his replies here, I wouldn't take it even for free.

    How is that a good deal? if there VPS section is loosing their coming money how would it benefit one of ours?. It could possibly if we raised the prices and restructured the plans but the reasons to sell it make it less attractive not more.

    If the other thread is correct and this has anything at all to do with pixel14 then it is a complete ripoff.

    Apparently the company or the domain was sold off. Pixel14 and Magni-Rack seems to be either affiliated or the same person.
