After a few months of investigation about money laundering in Iranian gambling websites I found an interesting one, Farhad Exchange website has been presenting and selling some codes called Fouchers similar to perfect money codes for a while. Intermediary codes work like actual currencies and usually a well-known bank or currency exchanger bankrolls them. But what’s interesting about the invented Fouchers code is that it’s only valuable in Farhad exchange and the 1xbet gambling website!!
Now the question would be that what was the first time for 1xbet to announce and use these codes? By searching their Persian guide channel we find this post which was published 17 months ago:
Translation: You don’t need to enter all your information. Only your fist and last name, along with user ID, password, password repetition, valid email and Webmoney ID are needed. Your information will never be accessible by any third party. Personal information privacy
And it gets even more interesting when we know that the Russian gambling website has announced its Persian section!!
Searching the web, you’ll realize that no other website is using this code, however after we published this fact in webamooz Farhad Exchanged tried to give a validation to this code by the following post:
Translation: The bankroll for P.S.Vouchers codes is Bitcoin which is provided by Premium Vouchers company. If you’re going to exchange your P.S.Vouchers codes for Bitcoin or Perfect Money see the website for Premium Vouchers company. P.S.Vouchers codes are referred with the original name of P.S.Vouchers in this website.
In this post Farhad Moghadam Salimi introduces this website https://premiumvouchers.com (archive http://archive.vn/N7nOz) as the funder of Fouchers code; let’s check the validity of this site. Its domain was registered in 30-5-218 and was for sale before that date!
We take a look at Archive.org just to be sure:
In August 16, 2018 (5 months ago) the website was just a prebuilt template!
On March 21, 2018 this domain was put for sale!
And even more interesting is that if you check the website right now there’s no option for exchanging Fouchers codes! And even Bitcoin is misspelled as Biccoin!!
Misspelling in premiumvouchers.com
The next question would is there anywhere else to trade this code, by searching the internet and telegram we find fouchers.info and a little further investigations shows that the age of this domain is 1 year and 4 months! Or 16 months!!
Date Status Name Server 2017-08-10 New bluehost.com
This domain is also hosted on bluehost.com; of course its registration information has been marked as private but let’s take a look at some similar domains like fouchers.net:
Date Status Name Server 2017-08-12 Transferred to bluehost.com 2017-08-11 Transferred to cloudflare.com 2017-06-15 New dataargham.com
And the registration history leads us to this information:

Here’s a comment made by someone else who also found about this fraudulence:
کل سایتهای ایرانی قمار (که فکر کنم تعدادشان بیشتر از ۵۰تاست) در مقابل سایت خارجیِ 1xbet مطمعنم که تراکنشی در حدود ۱۰درصد دارند .
این سایت روسی قبلاً درگاه اینترنتی داشت اما بعداز کمتر از ۲سال درگاهش بدلیل حجم وحشتناک بالا بسته شد و ادمین های ایرانیش به فکر ارز مبادله ای همسان افتادند . ارز فوچرز ر که هیچ ربطی به آن فوچرز خارجی مرتبط با پی پال نداره را با کمک صرافی فرهاداکسچنج بوجود اوردند ، ملت برای شارژ حساب سایت قمارشون ، از فرهاداکسچنج کدفوچرز میگیرند و با وارد کردن اون کد در سایت قمار ۱ایکس به اندازه همان مقدار حسابشون شارژ میشه و بعد فرهاداکسچنج معادل همون مقدار دلار به حساب سایت روسی میزنه .
این کد و این فوچرز هیچ کاربردی جز برای این دو سایت نداره . مطمعنم نمیشه برآورد کرد چقدر ارز از مملکت از طریق همین سایت از ایران خارج میشه .
اگر سرچ بزنید گمانم سال ۱۳۸۹ علی انصاریان دریک مصاحبه با برنامه ۹۰ تخمین میزد روزانه ۶۰۰ میلیون دلار از کشور ازطریق همین سایتهای قمار خارج میشه .
I’m sure that all Iranian gambling websites (which are more than 50 I think) have 10 percent comparing to 1xbet, this russian website used to have online gateway but after less than 2 years its gateway was shut due to its dreadful high amounts and its Iranian admins started to think about an equivalent exchanging currency. Fouchers currency which has nothing to do with the foreign fouchers related to PayPal was created by the help of Farhad Exchange, people buy fouchers code from Farhad Exchange in order to charge their gambling website account and their accounts will be charged with the same amount by entering that code in 1xbet and then Farhad Exchange transfers the same amount of dollars to the russian website’s account
This code, fouchers has no other use than these two websites, I’m sure the amount of money sent out by this website can’t be determined
If you search for this I think in 1389 sh in an interview with 90 TV show Ali Ansarian estimated that about 600 million dollars are carried out of the country through those gambling websites
And finally, it’s pretty obvious that they’re not the only people doing billion dollars money laundries out there and supervisory organizations must be responsible about those powerful cartel s and their relationship with official authorities, and the exact amount of money they’ve stolen from people.
