This post contains all the evidence that proves that actor Julian Brand (also known als Julian Finch) is a criminal and a scammer and commits tech support and money laundering for the scam company Geeks Technical Solutions Pvt Ltd. This company is an Indian tech support scam call center.
What crimes did he commit?
Actor Julian Finch is a criminal and scammer? Let’s check the evidence:
He does tech support scam, wire fraud, telephone fraud, money laundering in cases of several million USD. The Indian call center America Geeks made around $50,000 – 100,000 per day and Julian’s companies enabled them to process credit cards. He took a fair share of the amount. In the business it’s normal to take a 30% cut.
The US companies that Geeks used to process the credit card payments were: Geeks Technical Support LLC, USA Technology LLC, USA Travel Services LLC, USA Legal Services LLC and Jazz Payment Services LLC all registered by Julian Brand and under the address of #714 Washington Blvd, Marina del Rey, CA. These are the official registration documents for the technology and travel LLC. These are available on Alex Padilla California Secretary of State when entering the LLC’s name.
I have also found somewhere that they used 578 Washington Blvd #904, Marina del Rey, CA as their address. “Kevin Nash” aka Naresh Kumar, one of the leading scammers, called Malwarebytes and also mentioned USA Legal Services LLC (source: Malwarebytes: Conversation with America Geeks). You can find their company registration online for example here on OpenCorporates.com. You can find the whole list of the companies registered under his name here on the CorporationWiki
Also through the WHOIS lookup of various websites and domains that Geeks used to defraud people, you will find Julian Brand’s name couple of times linked to the scam. For example if you look up the domain
usatechpayment.com you will see this:
Again Julian Brand and as contact email even
[email protected]. That seems to be a common scheme. Even with the company registrations you will find Mohit Bansal’s name all the time combined with Julian’s. But it doesn’t just end there: on DomainBigData you can see all domains that are registered under Julian Brand’s name and they are all the different scam URLs e.g.
geekcrm.us which was the internal CRM tool. I have listed a full list of his purchased and registered domains here.
They are on the Better Business Bureau aswell. Geek’s US scam company USA Technology LLC was even BBB accredited and had a A rating by the BBB. So much to the reliability of BBB ratings. The original URL is unavailable now. I luckily saved a snapshot on The Archive. You can find the original site here on The Archive. Again, it shows the known address mentioned and Mohit Bansal as CEO. Also further down it mentions their alternate name USA Technology Services LLC, registered by Julian Brand.
Their travel scam iGoAir aka Skybrowser Pvt Ltd aka USA Travel Services LLC aka “Travelowski” has even a warning alert on their BBB page. Here, Julian Brand appears as CEO of this company. In case the BBB or Julian Brand try to remove their page, I saved a snapshot with The Archive here.
One of the most interesting proofs is a leaked email that we have received. It has Julian Brand’s American Express credit card attached as scan:
So who is Julian Brand?
Julian Brand is an actor who renamed himself recently to Julian Finch. He is based in Los Angeles, CA. He was playing in movies such as “Dope”. But who is he really?
When searching for him, we found his Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jfbrand. He has taken it down since but you can find a snapshot here on The Archive. We know it’s the correct one because you can see mentions of The Dandelion Collective which is also a company registered by him (shown above). His girlfriend Hannah Mason was with him in Chandigarh, the city where the Indian call center is located. It was a business trip of Julian to check on his call center and Hannah posted about it on Facebook.
He’s an actor, he has his own page at IMDb and a couple of demo show reels on Vimeo. We also assume that he got contacted by the scammers when he was recording some reel footage in India for this feature film called “Happy Journey” . For that film he also visits Dharamshala, a city in North India, not too far from the call center. Actually many employees of Geeks are from there.
Julian Brand also has a LinkedIn account which you can find here. He lists CutPay Merchant Services as his interests – sounds like their merchant. Merchants are the way that they use to process the scam victim’s credit cards. Also on the right you can see Mohit Bansal with Jazz Payment Services LLC
Lastly, we have the pics of the meetings between the Indian owners of the call center Kunal and Mohit Bansal, their management and Julian Brand. In this case, these pics are from Kunal’s wedding:
This is a call recording between me and a source inside the call center. That person explains the origin of these pictures and also stating that Julian himself called the scam number to test if “his” agents are properly working. He also confirmed that Julian visited the office a couple of times.
Lastly, their newest company, JAZZ PAYMENT SERVICES LLC. It’s also registered under Julian Brand’s name and according to Mohit Bansal’s LinkedIn is Mohit the CFO of this company. They registered the company on 1042 S Olive St Los Angeles, CA 90015, which is exactly the address of Rythm Visuals. That’s a new art project of Julian and probably Hannah aswell. They use this shell company to process new scam money. Here’s a link to their Google Maps and here is there website with Julian mentioned on it.
I hope this information is enough to get investigations going. They are doing money laundering of several millions of US Dollars for his Indian fraudster friends.
I hope that my information is enough to understand how Julian Finch is committing fraud and illegal activities in regards to Indian scam call centers. So yes, Actor Julian Finch is a criminal and scammer.
