January 31.2017 we posted on Facebook that we know who developed First Medical Marijuana Scam and we rated this company and provided a review :
This company creating software to steal credit card information from people. Don`t deal with this Hackers. They made mmjdoctoronline com and 420evaluationsonline com and selling fake medical marijuana recommendations with fake signatures. People can die by not being evaluated by a real doctor. Stop this SCAM !
interesting. Thanks for sharing. Unfortunately any word written is this article is not true. ArtfulBits company is just an outsource IT service, we develop software according to requirements from customer side. How customer will use this software is not a part of ArtfulBits company contract with customer. This is similar as you blame car manufacture for drunk driver.
Feel free to contact us if you want to investigate and prove that you blame a wrong people.
Good answer but what would you say if you were scammer?
Our blog was hacked and all info were deleted a few hours later, Good Job but I am not gonna stop! I will fight to the end!
If you are reading this article , most likely you were scammed by mmjdoctoronline.com aka 420evaluationsonline.com Do not hesitate to share your story because it does matter ! And we can help other people who are in need of professional medical advice not to become a victim of the scam (organized by International criminal group from Ukraine and Russia.)
Yesterday we received an email from a patient who obtained his medical marijuana card from mmjdoctoronline more than 8 month ago. Strange things began to happen after he got his card.
Several month ago he went to his local dispensary in Long Beach where he realized that he lost his recommendation letter. Dispensary stuff were able to find a copy of his recommendation. It turned out that this doctor is the one who they work with all the time and located a few blocks away from this dispensary. They said recommendation look different from recommendations this doctor usually issue to his patients. They called him directly and spent half an hour discussing something. 30 minutes later they explained that Dr. P. never worked at mmjdoctoronline he never issued this recommendation and never signed it. Dispensary employee tried to talk to MMJDOCTORONLINE to find out how did it happen that they use doctor`s information and signatures illegally ? They acted like they are not aware of anything. When dispensary said that they just spoke to this doctor and he confirmed the fact of FRAUD they said they’ll send this information to a manager and he should call us back. Never called back.
This is not the end of this story. Some time later somebody paid airplane tickets with his card and at this point he started to search for details online and found us.
P.S. : It was created by Kiril Brezanski with help of Oleksandr Kucherenko and Igor Voryk (Artfulbits.com ). Customer service representatives were notified that they work for SCAM and will be prosecuted too. We are not sharing any customer service representative names at this time because we believe they were scammed too and can share some information with us later.
We have investigated all social accounts and have some interesting findings . The following article will contain a lot of pictures of lavish life of family members of this criminal group.
The company called Artfulbits created a multi-million dollar fraudulent medical marijuana evaluations scam in the USA but it was not the first experience scamming people in United States.
ATM hacks and dating scams , spamming- what they do for a long time. Also this criminal group are hitting the scene, specializing in mobile threats and POS attacks.
Artfulbits created http://www.mmjdoctoronline.com also known as www.420evaluationsonline.com This website granted criminals with access to personal and credit card information of thousands of patients in the USA (most patients from California).
Medical Marijuana is a legal drug in California . All you need to get access to medical marijuana is a doctor`s recommendation . In case of approval patient receive a mmj card which he or she can use to obtain medical cannabis from a licensed dispensary. As we mentioned in our previous articles after investigation of all online accounts we found out that this scam was created by a person named Kirill Brezanski (Belarus). ( You can verify this information by researching backlinks of 420evaluationsonline.com ). With help of google team we were able to identify Brezanski`s partners who created mmjdoctoronline.com and 420evaluationsonline.com with his help. Kirill Brezanski in cooperation with Igor Voryk and Oleksandr Kucherenko (www.artfulbits.com/contacts/) have created a multi-million dollar fraud.
By singing up at mmjdoctoronline or 420evaluationsonline patients are sharing personal and credit card information which are being sold at different black market platforms like SilkRoad, AlphaBay, DreamMarket and etc.
The most interesting part of this story – patients who signed up at mmjdoctoronline and 420 evaluationsonline – have no idea that they were scammed. The basic idea of scammers is to collect personal information so that victim doe not suspect anything. In the end , the victim gets medical marijuana card – fake card with fake signature – because you never speak to a licensed Doctor. We talked to some doctors from whom they stole signatures and doctors confirmed that they never signed this recommendations and never worked for this scam.
Also, while financial fraud is still a big earner — accounting for $426 million — it’s being surpassed by the simple buying and selling of credit card data. The carding business brought in millions of dollars to this criminal group.
All of this is evidence of the growing sophistication of the Ukrainian cybercrime industry. (Group-IB defines this as “the market of computer crimes committed by Russian citizens, by citizens of the [countries in the Commonwealth of the Independent States, created when the Soviet Union was dissolved] and the Baltic states, as well as by citizens of other countries from the former Soviet Union.”)
The market for stolen credit card data in the last 10 years has finally been structured and now features mass automated distribution channels in the form of electronic trading platforms.
Do not get fooled by scammers! Any business that is asking for your personal information should be verified first!
To verify any business in California use Secretary of State website:
Notes: By the time we published this article some social accounts were deleted but we had a chance to copy some friends and family info so we will be digging more info from family and friends profiles later, stay tuned)
There are a lot of people are looking for a reliable medical marijuana doctor online. MmjDoctorOnline.com mention that they connect patients with licensed doctors. Is it true? No. they never connect you with any doctor. They take your payment and mail you a Fake medical marijuana paper with Fake doctor`s signature. We purchased recommendations from both MmjDoctorOnline and 420Evaluationsonline websites. We were never connected to any doctor but we received our recommendation via email right away. At this point we had fake recommendations from Robert Porte MD, Nayan Shan MD, Milton Miller MD. We tried to talk to this doctors by contacting them via phone numbers listed on recommendation letters provided by this businesses. No luck, customer reps (Anna, Valerie, Julia – all with accent) refused to connect us to a licensed doctors as stated on their websites. Not a problem, we were able to contact them thru Internet. All doctors confirmed – they never worked for 420EvaluationsOnline.com or mmjdoctoronline.com. What does it mean? It can cost you your life , do not expect a real Doctor`s advice from this SCAM , contact your local clinic! And You are buying fake medical marijuana recommendation letter and your personal information is in wrong hands . Medical Board of CA formally confirms its investigation of this case . We strongly recommend to verify all clinics at medical board website(www.mbc.ca.gov) first and if you made a purchase from this SCAM – dispute this debit card transaction as soon as possible or you can lose your money and your card information can be resold to 3rd parties.
This Scammers are not afraid to show their true faces. As you can see from google app store 420evaluationsonline and mmj doctoronline.com are developed by the same team from Lviv, Ukraine. Developer`s address and contact person were disclosed.
Every day we have have some interesting findings and now we have a better picture of all operations.

420evaluationsonline.com Website Associated With Fraudulent Activity
Due to the recent legalization of medical marijuana use in certain states, scores of potential buyers have turned to the web to find out about which providers can write medical marijuana prescriptions, as well as what the process of attaining such a prescription entails.
Sadly, in the wake of the legalization news, certain individuals are looking to capitalize on the aforementioned law-abiding citizens’ inquiries about sourcing and using medical marijuana, by preying on them through running elaborate online scams.
Such is the case of the website 420evaluationsonline.com, which has been accused of using fraudulent activity, swindling unsuspecting website visitors and making significant charges to their credit cards, without their expressed permission.
N.S., a victim of 420evaluationsonline.com’s tactics, who wishes to remain anonymous, while recounting her unsettling experience of using the website, said “I am suffering from chronic health issues, and I was looking to get a prescription for medical marijuana, from a certified medical provider. While browsing the web, I came across 420evaluationsonline.com, which promised to bring me into contact with a doctor who could write me such prescription. To my great surprise, not only was I immediately charged for the website’s services, but I also received, instantaneously, a medical marijuana prescription in my inbox – without having ever consulted with a doctor before! After a little thought, I decided to contact the doctor whose name was listed in the bottom of the prescription, who assured me he had no association with the company, and that it said company was a scam. I wanted to publicize my ordeal to let people know that 420evaluationsonline.com is not legitimate, and it poses a real, financial risk to those who are unaware of its shady tactics.”
It is expected that more accounts from victims of 420evaluationsonline.com’s activities are to come forward in the near future, while it is urgent that a thorough investigation is conducted into the website’s operations, both on a state and federal level.
Thank you for your efforts .

420 Evaluations Online and Mmj Doctor Online Scam Reviews
420 Evaluations Online/MmjDoctoronline is a well-managed medical marijuana scam with fake reviews.
M.P. I signed up with 420 evaluations online in November to obtain my medical marijuana card online. They charged my card in 5 minutes after registration but it should be done after conversation with a licensed medical marijuana doctor as stated 420evaluationsonlinecom website. It never happened. I am concerned.
T.A. I am waiting for a conversation with a 420evaluationsonline cannabis doctor for a week but they never called me back. I was told that he should contact me. 420 evaluations online is a scam and 100% not legit. Dont trust 420evaluationsonline fake reviews
K.E. The same thing. Got my mmj rec from 420 Evaluations Online in October this year. I have medical conditions and wanted to discuss it with a doctor but this scam does not have any doctors on board. They are generating recommendations automatically with fake doctor`s signature . What a scam . Somebody needs to stop this 420evaluationsonline scam. I dont understand how do they get so many reviews .
