Konstantin Maltsev

Brief information about Konstantin Maltsev

A man under Skype nickname Powenteh was using the internet to pretend that he is one of the actual popular freelancers. Complaints were addressed to Constantine Maltcev as well as other real handlers, so it is difficult to find a certain name.  

Powenteh was choosing ads on forums and at times was using projects on the freelance market. He created a template of a message that he was editing in line with the topic and was sending to the interested client. In his private messages he was suggesting to address a certain specialist, provided data regarding his experience, statistical data of successful projects and always added low prices, quick terms and full-time work. Therefore, he was trying to motivate the reader to act. In the end, he was always providing his contact information, explaining that due to his work he can rarely be found on that internet-platform, so it is best to address him in ICQ or Skype. 

Usually that was enough, but at times he was adding himself to the contact list on his own. Before doing that, he was changing his nickname in general info and it all looked as if the need specialist is addressing the client in person. 

After short negotiations, Powenteh was asking for down payment, received it and disappeared. 

He was receiving the money in line with that scheme for several years, periodically he would disappear and then would appear once more.
