Thanks, but you deserve most of the credit, for spotting something was wrong. There's never ever a genuine reason for someone to ask for your on-line passwords.
Unless people get suspicious and use search engines for research as you did, they won't end up here.

hi everyone, i think the people behinde the optimasolution scums is some chinese cos i recieved a call from them and from the accent she sounded chinese. whoever they are they are actively trying to cum people and they must be stopped. does anyone know how to stop them?? should i report them to the police? cos they are communicating with me everyday. basically i fooled them a couple of time by sending blank forms by email, and they asked me send again my detail, i asked which of my account detail is required ( business or personal account) which in reply they said send both, of course, so yeah that is how shameless they are. i would like to know if it is possible to traced them. any feedback is greatly appreciated.

thanks
