Sorry but I could not find the other thread and just wanted to confirm that most of the victims of this fraud were from Europe and about a third of them were solicited from a secret call center in Punjab Pakistan from sales people with fake names that include Barbara Wilson, Haley Gilbert, Dwight Stevens and Cliff Dunbar. The comments and complaints at these links disprove Gi2C claims that 1) they never said they had overseas offices, and 2) their bad reputation is false and only recently started in March of 2015. comments at these links and especially the screenshots I pasted below show they had issues in 2013 that clearly have nothing to do with neither "an envious competitor" nor "a disgruntled former employee" I think this is all of their own doing.

And these two links below have nothing to do with Pakistan but show there were complaints and victims going back to 2011 (read comments of user "Sullivan")
Gi2C: Get Into China - Internship Program | Wall Street Oasis and Get into China (GI2C) Internship Program | Wall Street Oasis. Also remember that the owner of Gi2c is known to use hacker to corrupt the links to negative comments posted online and 39 such broken links were already found and a negative comment on their Facebook Page or blog has a life span of about 2-10 hours. Try it yourself and see what I mean. Just go either location and ask a legitimate question like "How many of you were cheated by Gi2c?" or "Did you see this blurb at realscam.com about the fake Gi2c London office?" and then wait a few hours to see magicians at Gi2C make your words disappear! http://scam-detector.com/forums/foru...ts-on-internet
The Gi2c Beijing "Team" is listed and photographed on the Gi2C website. Where are the photos for Barbara Wilson, Haley Gilbert, Dwight Stevens, and Cliff Dunbar of the Gi2C Pakistan "Team"? And how many people in Pakistan really have English names like these 4 people? But probably the more important question is why does a company in Beijing recruit interns from a company in Pakistan and who makes those called believe they are calling from a Gi2C London Office that never existed, and then those that are reeled in are told to send their money to an HSBC bank in Hong Kong? The user "Ricky" at scam-detector.com thinks this arrangement is deliberately set up to make it impossible for the police in any one of those locations to arrest and prosecute the fraudsters. Where is the real crime committed? Beijing? Pakistan? Hong Kong? or London?
The Russian owner of Gi2c (Yuri Khlystov) maybe slick and sly, but he definitely is not stupid.
