AdSurfDaily Inc. and other firms and individuals linked to the autosurf trade have been named defendants in a class-action racketeering lawsuit.
Among the allegations is that ASD was a participant in schemes beyond its own autosurf Ponzi scheme and was engaged with co-conspirators in a pattern of racketeering. Here is part of the ASD story — in pictures. Some of the pictures are being published today for the very first time.

Google search results showing reference to Juan Fernandez, chief executive officer of ASD, as “national sales manager” for AdViewGlobal. On December 22, Fernandez’ name appeared in a Blog post as “national sales manager” for AdViewGlobal. The name “Gary,” also an associate of ASD, appeared in the same post. Neither name now appears in the post, but the references remain in the search results. The original pitch in the post was that AdViewGlobal was a hedge against the recession.

Andy Bowdoin’s gifts to the National Republican Congressional Committee for which he received the “Medal of Distinction.” Note that the $250 contributions from 2007 were given in the name of “AdSalesDaily Inc.,” as opposed to “AdSurfDaily Inc.” ASD members claimed the “medal” was a special award from the President of the United States, and Bowdoin didn’t correct the record. In fact, he took the medal, which signified only his ability to write a check to receive banquet tickets, on the road with him.
