Video Shows AdViewGlobal Graphics Were Removed From AdSurfDaily Webroom

In this post, we showed you a screen shot of the AdSurfDaily webroom showcasing AdViewGlobal, a new autosurf.

Scam.com and at least one other website featured graphics on the same topic today.

We kept our browser window open after we made the screen shot, thinking that word would get around and that the ASD webroom just might remove the AdViewGlobal graphic. Earlier, AdView Global specificially disclaimed any tie to ASD.

Turns out the word did get around.

So, we made a video with the original webroom window still open. In the video, we hit the “reload” button. When the page reloaded, it showed the AdViewGlobal graphic had been removed from the ASD webroom.

We made this video with Maddy The Wonder Puppy scurrying around our feet in the office, so the narration is . . . well, let’s just say it could be better.

But you’ll get the point.

  1. Well, it looks like I may have to rethink my comments on the other thread. If the ASD controlled domain is being used to promote this, that takes a lot of air out of my defense of Andy possibly being an innocent in AVG. Despite all evidence to the contrary, I really didn’t think Andy was stupid enough to launch a new ponzi scheme while a grand jury is deliberating criminal charges against him for the last one.
    I really anticipate someone in law enforcement stopping this one pretty quick.

  2. Hi Gregg,

    Gregg Evans: If the ASD controlled domain is being used to promote this, that takes a lot of air out of my defense of Andy possibly being an innocent in AVG.

    In our “ASD, AdGateWorld, AdViewGlobal — In Pictures” post, we showed a graphic from the ASD Breaking News site in which the ASD webroom specifically was called “our” webroom:

    http://patrickpretty.com/2009/01/31/asd-adgateworld-adviewglobal-in-pictures/

    So, ASD has control over the webroom, and people close to AdViewGlobal also have control over the webroom.

    Therefore, both ASD/AdViewGlobal have control over the webroom. It didn’t take long for that graphic to come down once the insiders knew it was being talked about on scam.com, Steve Watt’s page and here.

    Whether Andy has personal control over the webroom is not known — at least by me. But ASD is HIS organization, and the RICO lawsuit makes the express claim that ASD is a racketeering “enterprise” as defined under federal law.

    It is possible, of course, that multiple layers of corruption exist within that enterprise. A member of the enterprise, for example, might have shared the ASD database with other autosurf operators — meaning a key tool of a criminal enterprise was share with yet another criminal enterprise.

    Bowdoin himself could have transferred the database to another enterprise. Someone also could have stolen it. There is a lot of aiding and abetting going on, including aiding and abetting by people low on the totem pole in the ASD enterprise.

    Some of them may learn that you can’t take the tools of a criminal enterprise and transfer them to another criminal enterprise without getting indicted for conspiracy and wire fraud.

    And they also may learn that the Feds and the lawyers handing the RICO case are experts at rooting out conspiracies and co-conspirators. Every person promoting AdViewGlobal now is a co-conspirator. They ignored the clues from the August forfeiture case, the December forfeiture case, the RICO lawsuit and all previous autosurf litigation, and that in itself is evidence of a conspiracy.

    Every minor amendment made to the new surf sites is evidence of a conspiracy, as well. It’s all window dressing, yet it is stark evidence of planning.

    Regards,

    Patrick

  3. All good points Patrick. The RICO civil suit isn’t really going after the real crooks, that’s a dry hole and I suspect it’s little more than greenmail addressed to Bank of America. I would just love to see the US Attorney in the case go down the RICO route, though. A thorough dismantling of the entire trail in this case would go a long way towards dispelling a lot of the myths scammers use to assure victims of legitimacy. Put a few of the operators and perhaps more importantly more than a few of the big promoters in prison and maybe it’ll have some deterrent value in the future.

    The news release issued by the law firm focused mostly on BOA — a signal, to be sure.

    One of the things I was going to write about yesterday before other things intervened was the “art” of the RICO complaint. It put things in terms people could understand, asking, for instance, why PayPal wouldn’t do business with these surfs.

    And if PayPal wouldn’t do business, why would BOA?

    One of the things I forgot to mention above is the purported move of these new surfs “offshore.” That shows planning and is big-time evidence of a conspiracy.

    Patrick
