p2pnet news | RIAA News:- A long-time p2pnet reader and computer programmer says he’s 99.9% certain he’s unearthed the name of the company that may be running the RIAA’s so called ‘Settlement Center’.
“My information is correct based on his examination of data from several sources,” he states in an email, going on >>>
I’ve been doing a little internet research and I believe I’ve located the RIAA’s extortion centers.
It looks to me like they’re run by a company called P S C Group, LLC.
Below is the information documenting why I believe this company is involved:
Visiting the Website p2plawsuits.com and clicking on, “help,” I got the phone number for the settlement center. I checked the CNAM [ (Calling NAMe) An IN (Intelligent Network) ] database, and it associated the advertised number, 9132348181 to “PSC GROUP LLC”.
When you make a call, a few things go along with it.
There’s ANI (automated number identification), which generally isn’t transmitted to the recipient. CLID (calling line ID, aka caller ID) is the number that’s calling. (Note- this is easy to fake, just FYI).
Caller ID Name (CNAM) isn’t actually sent along with the call.
The receiving telco’s switch gets the call (complete with ANI and CLID) and then queries a 3rd party database for CNAM information.
That’s assembled into the call which is then sent to the destination subscriber, complete with callerID and CNAM (but no ANI unless the destination is a 1800 number).
As I understand it, there’s more than one of these CNAM databases, they don’t all talk to each other or have the same data, and they all charge per query.
The North America Numbering Plan website shows the number is located in Kansas City, Kansas provided by Southwestern Bell. Googling “P S C GROUP LLC” put the following websites at the top of the list:
Contact Information (Obtained from above websites) for P S C Group LLC is as follows:
13200 Metcalf Avenue
Overland Park, KS 66213
Phone numbers, 913.402.4599 800.592.8003 fax 913.402.4689
1051 Perimeter Drive
Schaumburg, IL 60173
Phone numbers, 847.517.7200 800.592.8003 fax 847.517.7600
601 Carlson Parkway
Minnetonka, MN 55305
Phone Numbers, 952.448.2300 800-592-8003 fax 800-231-4915
Unless the telephone company CNAM is incorrect, to me, this company looks awfully guilty.
The alternative CNAME database points to the CNAM being S I L C C.
But Googling that name also returns the Overland Park Kansas address.
I don’t know if this will help any victims of RIAA attacks or their lawyers or not. But hope it will, and the information is up for grabs.
Definitely stay tuned.
