The Compliance Services Fraud

Notice that you may be getting a solicitation from a company called “Compliance Services”, which asks you to fill up a form that “looks like” an official form. It asks you to send $125 alongwith the completed form to the address at

Compliance Service
71 Commercial St.
Postal Main Box 241
Boston MA 02109

This is a fraud and a caution has been posted on the Mass Government website.

It asks the check to be made in the name of “Compliance Service” and says that “All information will be treated as private and confidential. This seems like a fraud and the police and the investigation agencies may like to investigate it.

The “document” sent by the so called “Compliance Services” has two parts. The first part is the form itself and the second part is the instruction. The form is named “CS MIN-MA11-1”.

June 20th, 2011 17 comments

Mr. Munna Tripathi from Azamgarh asks

Hi frends, Yesterday I went to PSU bank to take one demand draft. While counting the notes, they detected 3 fake 1000 Rupee notes in the cash which I had given.They didn’t return the notes back to me and instead they burnt the notes then and there infront of my eyes. So I lost Rs. 3000 simply for no fault of mine. So can anyone tell me how to detect fake 500 Rs note and fake 1000 Rs note easily in the section without observing it thoroughly. I know one method to identify the fake notes is thickness of the note. But is there any other easier method to detect it ?

Although turbo boost is not available in the core i3-2100 ( The newer turbo 2.0 technology, that increases the time for which processor can be in the boosted state, is available only on the second generation core i5 and i7 processors), the processor still shows significant performance improvement over similarly clocked 1st generation core i3 processor. The more significant improvement has been in the area of integrated graphics unit.
