Four entrepreneurs whose proposal expired several months ago contacted me to tell me that an investor using the name "Abdul Latif Jameel" is claiming that I have provided him with their contact info. This is not true. Adbul has never been a registered investor and appears to have obtained the email addresses of the entrepreneurs he contacted through an investor who was deactivated under suspicion that she was contacting entrepreneurs and selling entrepreneur contact info to a questionable investor/funder. It has been verified that all reports so far are coming from entrepreneurs that were contacted by the deactivated investor.
Around November 2018, a person claiming to be "Abdul Latif Jameel" contacted entrepreneurs with these credentials:
Abdul Latif Jameel
ALJ Yatirim Holdings
The aljyatirim.com website was created in November 2018 and there is no site there any longer.
An identity thief going by the name Abdul Latif Jameel claimed to be president of a company registered on the Turkish stock exchange. The real company has verified that a company called "ALJ Investment Holdings" has been maliciously assuming their identity.
In his latest attempt at identity theft, this person is contacting entrepreneurs using firstname.lastname@example.org and claiming to be:
Abdul Latif Jameel
This website was created in February 1996 and was not created by the scammer this time. He is pretending to be president of this company.
You are advised not to deal with the individual claiming to be Abdul Latif Jameel if you are contacted by him with the above gmail address. It appears that there is a real and legitimate Abdul Latif Jameel who is unfortunately the favorite persona of this identity thief.
Entrepreneurs can use our Investor Verification tool to verify whether an investor who contacts them is registered with our network or not. If not, don't deal with them and please report them.
