SCAMS --- VIDEOANIMATION INC / BOOKWRITING INC / RETROCUBE
« on: March 15, 2018, 11:23:57 PM »
Please be aware the videoanimationinc..com is a website purporting to be a professional production house for animated videos. Their website offers amazing discounts for their work (e.g. 70%).  So here are the facts:

1. A google map search will show that their headquarters is a non-descript apartment block in Wiltshire Blv, CA.
2. Their emails and offers are all signed off with the name "Brian William"  (not Williams).  This person cannot be contacted.
3. Immediately after making payment ($399 for a 60 second video), they send further emails all signed off by:

Best Regards
Brian William
Senior Animation Consultant
VideoAnimationInc
Toll Free: 1-888-770-9216
2619 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles,
CA 90057, USA

The first of these additional emails contains offers of "Copyright Protection" - price is $1000.  Then they also make "professional recommendations" prior to starting any work that, in their professional opinion, the videos need to be longer and the price will be $199 for every additional 30 seconds.

4. There are also follow-up emails from various phoney organisations like "BOOKWRITINGINC" who "are offering you this once is a lifetime chance to become a Best Selling Author".  Signed off by:

Mark Gilliam
Senior Writing Consultant
BookWritingInc..com
+1-888-588-5175
1111 Wilshire Blvd,
Los Angeles, CA 90017

(note that the similar phoney street address)

5.  When one of their consultants contacts you, they will never do it using a direct videoanimationinc email address.  You can not contact them directly either.

6. Follow-up emails will also be sent from an organisation called RETROCUBE.  The 1st paragraph of their email states:

Retrocube is the America’s most trusted app development company for startups and enterprises. We work with cool clients and make apps that excite us. We don't settle - and neither should you when it's time to hire a mobile app development company.

compared with the same 1st paragraph from VIDEOANIMATIONINC:

VideoAnimationInc is the America’s most trusted Video Animation Company for startups and enterprises. We work with cool clients and make videos that excite us. We don't settle - and neither should you when it's time to hire a video animation company.

I will post if I see more SCAMS of the same ilk.
