Payment Processors Used By Surf Firms Offline

UPDATED 8:56 P.M. EDT (U.S.A.) Two popular payment processors used by autosurfing firms are offline simultaneously.

The main pages for SolidTrustPay of Canada and StrictPay of Panama both will load. But registration buttons for both of the processors are generating server errors and will not load. The problem appears to be affecting secure (https) connections.

Some members said they could not access their accounts. Others described the problem, which is being discussed on autosurfing forums, as intermittent.

Neither company has explained the problem on their main pages. The secure pages for both SolidTrustPay and StrictPay are generating a “Connection Interrupted” error message in Firefox, and a “cannot display the webpage” error in Internet Explorer.

UPDATE 3:13 P.M. EDT (U.S.A.) One of our readers reports that sign-up pages for the processors worked from his location. We again tried to get the pages to load in Firefox and IE, and they threw server errors. Why this is happening is unclear.

UPDATE 8:56 P.M. EDT (U.S.A) SolidTrustPay and StrictPay are accessible now.

  1. Both seem to work for me. I don’t have accounts with either but the sign-up pages loaded, which were https.

  3. Hello 7boogiewoogie,

    7boogiewoogie: Actually their working just fine

    People who can’t access their accounts or register would disagree with you.

    BTW, the AdViewGlobal forum has closed a thread on this topic to discussion.


  4. Here’s how smart an autosurfer is:

    “Actually their working just fine” Their?!?!

    You mean “Actually THEY’RE working just fine” as in they are?

    Not surprising coming from a person who supports Andy Bowdoin!

  5. Speaking of offshore tax scams, I thought I’d share this:

    Beware The “Dirty Dozen” Tax Scams

    Uh-oh excerpt for AVG participants:

    Hiding Income Offshore

    The IRS aggressively pursues taxpayers and promoters involved in abusive offshore transactions. Taxpayers have tried to avoid or evade U.S. income tax by hiding income in offshore banks, brokerage accounts or through other entities. Recently, the IRS provided guidance to auditors on how to deal with those hiding income offshore in undisclosed accounts. The IRS draws a clear line between taxpayers with offshore accounts who voluntarily come forward and those who fail to come forward.

    Taxpayers also evade taxes by using offshore debit cards, credit cards, wire transfers, foreign trusts, employee-leasing schemes, private annuities or life insurance plans.

    The IRS has also identified abusive offshore schemes including those that involve use of electronic funds transfer and payment systems, offshore business merchant accounts and private banking relationships.

    (Now hum the theme from Dragnet to yourself. Unfortunately, the IRS has no catchy song.)

  6. The well known surf-ponzi-processor has been down for a few months now. It is estimated that the sole owner, a Terry “The Banker” Kurtis bilked millions from unsuspecting investors all over the world between 2005 and 2012. Ongoing investigations by the US Treasury Branch, The FBI Las Vegas Division as well as the RCMP in Vancouver BC, RCMP Commercial Crime Division in Kelowna, BC and the RCMP in Vernon BC have all been investigating since 2006. In may of 2012 the RCMP finally learned his home/office address and may* be preparing an arrest warrant as this story unfolds. Various searches through Corporate Canada in Vancouver BC through our press agencies legal department has uncovered a number of new websites registered to the owner of cashx including,, and dozens more that appear to all have been registered around December to fab of last year. cashed website pages through Google suggest was the precursor to a pornographic production company, Avvaa seems to have been some form of health product investment site which is believed to be an unregistered investment opportunity and Eezup has no information returned when searching Google. Investigations through Revenue Canada’s CCRA division show that Mr. Kurtis has never operated a company that has offered a valid product or service for sale and it would appear his income is 100% derived from Online investment schemes. A search through credit card company records and files show most of his personal expenditures are all done using either cash or by credit card as a means of bypassing the income tax act. Investigations of online information provided by investigators in the UK show several hundred websites registered to Mr. Kurtis through his company reel
    Current searches have shown Mr. Kurtis’s current venture to be registering mineral titles as found through the BC Government website MTO online (Mineral Titles Online) and shows most of his current expenditures going towards several hundred mineral claims in the Okanagan Valley near Kelowna BC.
