LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 2, 2005 -- UC Hub Group, Incorporated, (OTC BB: UCHB) is pleased to announce that eSAFE, Inc. has signed a contract with US STARCOM, a leading provider of value-added prepaid services and solutions to the urban market. This contract is the first phase of a multi-phased product rollout.

US STARCOM sells pre paid phone cards, pre paid cellular, instant pin cards, rechargeable products, digital entertainment and health care services. eSAFE will begin this exciting phase of the program by providing a Debit Cash Card for the distribution network geared to the domestic and Latin Markets of US STARCOM. This is the first of a series of projects to be rolled out with US STARCOM and can be combined with the other products and services they offer. US STARCOM has distribution in Bodega Grocery stores and with various Latino media groups, including Hispanic Communications, a company that sells celebrity soccer star products to fans. The US STARCOM pre paid products are currently offered through Univision, the largest Latino Broadcasting Television Network in the United States.

eSAFE will also provide to US STARCOM electronic payment platform gateways and strategic interfaces for medical software and tools. The electronic payment gateways can be used not only for medical applications that both companies provide, but for other products and services that US STARCOM provides.

eSAFE President, Alice Kong, states, "The contract between eSAFE and US STARCOM will complete another strategic milestone in offering virtual banking services to the domestic and rapidly growing international marketplace. We continue to align our company in this international marketplace by offering value-added benefits to each and every debit card member. We will bring to US STARCOM unique virtual banking software, combined with online and offline platforms for domestic and international applications. This relationship with US STARCOM allows us to continue to expand our domestic and Latino distribution network."

The President and CEO of US STARCOM, John DiDomenico, states, "eSAFE offers us the banking and cash component that will fulfill the needs of our international-based families and customers. We are excited about the value-added benefits that eSAFE brings and the media capabilities of both companies. eSAFE provides an accelerated and instant launch into our marketplace with substantial infrastructure and complex processing components already in place with the ATM banking cards, electronic processing, payroll cards, gift cards and MasterCard-flagged debit cards. We had forecasted in our distribution that we would sell 90,000 phone cards per month, and we expect this projected volume to assist in the modeling and rollout of the eSAFE debit card."
