More on the E2-Labs scam

29/10/2009 Written by Roberto Preatoni

With the pre­vi­ous arti­cle, we explained that the E2-​labs com­pany located in Hyder­abad (India) is cur­rently sell­ing secu­rity train­ings using Zone-H’s image, logos, mate­r­ial with­out per­mis­sion to unaware students.

We are cur­rently receiv­ing emails from enraged stu­dents who, for exam­ple, attended such courses and never got a diploma/​certificate in exchange. In par­tic­u­lar, even those stu­dents who attended the first and only round of courses (Hands on Hack­ing, Web-​apps and Wire­less) gen­uinely held by Zone-​H teach­ers (hav­ing Mr. Roberto Preatoni and Mr. Ger­ardo Di Gia­como as teach­ers) are com­plain­ing about that. To all those stu­dents who par­tic­i­pated to such courses, we want to say that Mr. Zaki Qureshey, asked us to sign all the diplo­mas (for each of the three courses and for each of the stu­dents, but with­out putting the student’s name on them). At the end of the train­ing ses­sions, he asked us to dis­trib­ute the diplo­mas of one of the three courses to the attend­ing stu­dents, in order to be able to make some “cer­e­mo­nial pic­tures” but he also asked us NOT TO DIS­TRIB­UTE the diploma of the other two courses, he would have done it by him­self later on.

The sus­pect now is that he never handed over such diplo­mas (again, we signed them with no stu­dents names on them) in order to be able to give them to other stu­dents, maybe at the end of a FAKE Zone-​H course orga­nized later on by him­self using our brand and mate­r­ial with­out permission.

To all of those who incurred in such scam we ask to mail us send­ing all pos­si­ble details of it.

Mean­while I received a set of pic­tures and a video demon­strat­ing that Mr. Zaki Qureshey, the owner of E2-​labs com­pany is abus­ing of my image by plac­ing adver­tis­ing bill­boards around Hyder­abad, pro­mot­ing his com­pany and offer­ing “guar­an­teed income jobs” using my face.

Need­less to say, I was totally unaware of it, I never gave the per­mis­sion to E2-​labs to do that. This is the most uneth­i­cal busi­ness prac­tice I ever hap­pened to know, I am lit­er­ally speech­less and I will not be happy up to the moment Mr. Zaki Qureshey will be fully accounted for his mis­ac­tions in a court of law.
