Some interesting facts about Endellion Inter Ltd (Home Business System)

Recently I received a spam email from a supposed friend on Facebook, advertising a “Home Business System”, which is being sold by a company called Endellion Inter Ltd, based in Birmingham, UK.
I set myself the challenge of finding out more about these people, because I do not like being spammed, especially by people who call themselves friends of mine.

Endellion Inter Ltd

This company has a registered address at:  Corner Chambers, 590A Kingsbury Road, Birmingham B24 9ND and is a registered limited company in England and Wales,  company no. 07867739. It was first registered at Companies House on 1st Dec. 2011.

The director is listed as a Ms Agnes Jouaneau of Seychellois nationality (more about her below).
This company also markets “The Auction Butler”, which is eBay auction  sniping software patented in the Ukraine in January 2012. It can be found at and

The “System”

This supposed money-making opportunity features on at least four web sites, all featuring Endellion Inter, three of which were registered in May 2012 by a Howard Molly from Dublin, and one by Corner Chambers, which is the first part of the registered address for Endellion Inter Ltd. These sites have been registered at the Center of Ukrainian Internet Names ( Two of these sites are already defunct at the time of writing ( and

The registration seems rather a strange choice for a UK company, but shows a further Ukrainian connection in addition to that of the Ukrainian-patented auction sniping software they sell.

Thus, at the time I received the email, the company had only been in existence for just over 6 months and the web sites promoting its system had only been registered for little over a month. The two active sites are, however, already featuring success story testimonials.

I dug around the active sites for a bit to see what I could find. 
They contain an earnings disclaimer and also state they cannot guarantee the accuracy of testimonials.

Site 1.

 The claim is made that it is possible to make “up to $377 per week”. You are asked to fill in some contact details plus indicate your location in order to go further.

Attempting to leave their landing page without any action triggers the usual pop-up box offering a downsell.

Downsell 1 offers you the system for $77.95 as a reduction from the full price of  $197.95. However, you are warned there are only 2 positions left in your area and you only have 5 minutes to decide. 

This offer amused me, because I did NOT fill in my location details as requested on the initial landing page.

Attempting to leave this page will bring you to a further downsell 2 page at

Here you are warned that there now only ONE position is left in your area, which has been reserved for you for the next 5 minutes at a mere $47.95. Act quickly urges the page, because if you do not, your reserved place will be freed to the thousands of other visitors coming to the web site (oh yes!).

Site 2.

Here the landing page shows the same blurb offering the same scheme. However, if you wish to leave, you are invited to read a letter by Edward Harris, self-styled “one of the most famous home-based jobs consultants”. Unfortunately, I have not managed to find any other reference on the Net to a Mr Edward Harris acting in such a capacity. 

Edward offers great things: “In less than 1 minute he will tell you how to get a job that pays as much as $87 an hour” says the site. (Rather more than the “up to $377 a week” promised on Site 1. 

He spins us the usual hard luck story with happy ending of Internet riches. 

As for the system itself, it is, of course, a blindingly easy way to become rich: “All you have to do to share information is to post link and wait. Each passing day that link gets exposed to more and more potential clients and chances grow that some of them will buy the product”  Yes, right. 

Mr Harris starts his price at $97 but, if you don’t hurry: “In the nearest future, in order to expand the program and to cover additional expenses, I'll have to raise the entrance fee up to $500 and charge monthly membership fee of $29. But it will not affect you, if you sign up right now.” OK

Should you attempt to leave, you will be offered downsell 1 at $77.95 as on Site 1. This time you are taken straight to a payment page, which promises “Instant access to a work at home opportunity that you could make up to $377 a week.” 

Dammit, I wanted that $87 an hour you promised me, Ed! *pout*

Trying to leave downsell 1 will bring you to the same $47.95 downsell 2 offer as on Site 1

Ms Agnes Jouaneau

According to UK company records, this woman of Seychellois nationality is director of at least 40 other UK companies, all with the same registered address in Birmingham as that of Endellion Inter Ltd. You can see a listing of these companies in the record for one of them, Merkato UK, at

If you search for her name on the Net, you will find it consistently listed together with an IP address linked to a Bergdorf Group Ltd, which is associated with malware and other shady Internet activities. 

Most interestingly, the very same name appears as the name of a director of “dozens” of companies in New Zealand, including one mentioned in a report about shell companies, which have been set up to launder money and possibly to finance terrorism which you can read at:

The main protagonist in that story, one Stella Georgette Port-Louis, also of Seychellois nationality, is director of hundreds of other companies in New Zealand. She is also director of quite a few companies in the UK, all citing the same registered address in Birmingham as our Home Business System friends, as you can verify here:

Given this background, would you trust Endellion Inter Ltd with your money?

I put out a question on WebAnswers asking for people's experiences with this company. So far, at the time of writing, one person has replied. She signed up, got cold feet, and fortunately got her money returned. That is something at least. The question is here.

To suceed online means trying many different ideas

One of the most difficult things about trying to earn some income from home-based Internet business activities is trying to find the perfect niche for yourself. It's easy for people to say you should choose something that you are passionate about or that interests you sufficiently so that you can research it. Just because something appeals to you, it does not mean it will appeal to a large number of readers, who are also eager to spend money!

So, it may be necessary to try out quite a few ideas, and that means setting up at least one web site for each of these topics. Some of these may bring in some small change, some may take off and become real earners, and some will just have to be ditched.

 In addition, the rules keep changing all the time. Many have been hit badly by the Google Panda and Penguin algorithms. Some people,who know more about these things than I do, are suggesting it might be better just to ditch a badly hit site and try to rebuild that niche again on a new domain.

These are just two reasons why I'm really pleased that I can set up Wordpress sites as and when I wish, using a very simple set-up process and without having to pay for a new hosting contract each time, so the only expense is the purchase of the domain name.

I do this at Wealthy Affiliate University, where my membership includes free hosting with unlimited bandwidth and space. This in itself is a precious resource. However, I also have access to their keyword tool and to masses of training material about every aspect of making money on the Web, starting right at the very beginning for those with no previous experience. If I am stuck, I can ask my questions on the forum, which is frequented by knowledgeable and experienced internet marketers.
