OBSTRUCTION? ASD Spokeswoman Whose Name Appeared In Secret Service Filing Says She Instructed Members NOT To Fill Out Government Form; Now Appears To Be Advising Members To Clam Up If Contacted By Agents

Andy Bowdoin’s recent court filings are “delusional,” federal prosecutors said yesterday.

And now a woman who apparently is AdSurfDaily’s new spokesperson purportedly has sent an email in which she said she advised members after the seizure of tens of millions of dollars from Bowdoin’s bank accounts last year not to fill out the government form for victims.

Sara Mattoon, whose name is listed in a court document filed by the Secret Service yesterday, also appears to be trying to influence members who filled out the form not to cooperate if contacted by the agency.

“Soon after the ASD shutdown, the DOJ (Dept of Justice) set up a website for people to file a claim for the money they had in ASD,” Mattoon said in the email. “As soon as I heard about it, I told everyone not to do it because I could see what the Government was trying to do, but some people didn’t realize what it was and afterwards they regretted doing so.”

Mattoon referenced an email sent out by ASD mainstay Robert Fava over the weekend. The email was distributed after the ASD case took a dramatic turn Friday, with filings by prosecutors that suggested ASD President Andy Bowdoin was trying to lie his way back into the civil forfeiture case with the aid of an attorney who was engaging in “fantasy.”

Here is content from the email distributed by Fava, who was relating the experience of a fellow ASD member who apparently was contacted by the Secret Service recently.

“I got this email today (see below) and called the guy,” the email said. “He is special task force with secret service. Calling because I submitted a claim for the funds I had put into ASD — I think it was a lady in Michigan who suggested at one time that I do the claim form. Later I wished I had not submitted it.

“I asked what type of questions he wanted to ask and if he would email them to me so that I could review them with my attorney before answering them,” the email continued. “I told him the government was the only one who created victims by seizing the money illegally and shutting down ASD.”

Quoting the agent, the email continued.

“He said it sounds like I had an adversarial role with the government, and he could not send them. He said they were trying to talk to folks who had lost money in ASD, before arranging a personal visit with them. It sounds like they are wanting testimony to build a case for the government’s side.

“I do not want to contribute to that effort, so thanked him and we ended the call,” the email concluded.

In introducing the email, Fava said:

“I wanted to share the following item which happened today to a gentleman in the ASD group.

“Are any of you aware of this happening to others yet?

“I assume the government is now trying to find people to speak out against ASD, especially since Andy’s recorded call.

“This is the reason why I never encouraged filling out a government form . . . it’s just ammunition for them to use against ASD,” Fava continued.

“Feel free to share this with your groups and mainly those that you know of that might have submitted a claim form on the government site thinking it was an innocent submission,” Fava’s email concluded.

Fava was a constant presence on ASD training calls, members said. He once claimed he was making $1,000 a day through ASD.

Mattoon’s email, combined with Fava’s and the remarks of the other ASD member, may raise serious questions about obstruction of justice.

In her email, Mattoon did not mention recent filings by the prosecution. Nor did she mention the fact her name was included in a filing by the Secret Service yesterday — the transcript of a Bowdoin recording last week.

Although Mattoon claimed in the email that “[t]he government does not seem to have the intention of giving the [seized] money back,” the record of the case plainly states otherwise in multiple places.

Although it is clear that the government believes serious felonies have occurred and that Bowdoin is not entitled to benefit from his participation in crimes, prosecutors have pointed out that the government seeks to establish a restitution program for crime victims. Meanwhile, Judge Rosemary Collyer also has referenced the prosecution’s claims about the establishment of a program.

Apart from court filings, the government even had advertised the existence of the prospective restitution program and has updated the information as the situation warranted.

Regardless, Mattoon suggested the government planned to keep all the money, despite court filings and website updates that reinforce its desire to compensate crime victims.

“[P]erhaps they were just looking for people they could try to identify as being victimized by ASD,” Mattoon said in the email, referencing the email from Fava.

“If you get contacted, this is how this one ASD member handled it. It may be useful for you,” she said.

  1. I cannot view the Secret Service information at the moment, due to the limitations of my current computer. Does it indicate where this Sara Mattoon is located?

    Looking up the name itself, I’m only (so far) seeing one person of that name involved in MLM-style businesses, and if that is the same Sara Mattoon… well, let me just say that anyone who styles themselves as a “lightworker” gets odd looks from my direction, thanks to how many of that ilk I’ve been finding in the get-rich-quick, make-money-at-all-costs schemes.

  2. Wow. If this were a Chess game……….the government still has all its pieces while Bowdoin only has two pawns on the chess board. One of them has it’s pants down……(Fava)

  3. Sicilian,

    Florida is a very good guess. Sara is not new to ASD. She appears to have sent emails as far back as April 2007 officially on behalf of ASD, probably before Saint Andy went national……

    Sara could also be the founder of the EarthStar Alliance, which, wierdly, would explain a lot……

  5. Sara Matoon has returned to the ASD frontline, but yes she was well known at the beginning. I guess ASD may have been very good to her with her husband’s medical bills! But thereagain it is easy to be generous with other people’s money and that is all ad packs ever were. I may not be correct, but this is my guess.

    Robert Fava, who disappeared just before the raid, gave up his ASD training due to “pressure of work” and, it is rumoured, on the advice of Andy B to lie low, after the news of his sexual offences record leaked out. We have heard very little from this prominent promotor of ASD since the raid, and now he breaks his silence with a juicy recommendation to obstruct the government in their investigations

    Amazing that they publicly doubt the governments intentions to reimburse monies to victim members, when they both know that they cant even start to do this until their hero Andy Bowdoin and the pro se filers, stop all their nonsence and Judge Collyer releases the funds to the gov.

    Even more amusing is Sara Matoon’s “p.s.” requesting that her emails are not published anywhere without her permission. Was this an afterthought after reading that the Government passed the transcript of Andy Bowdoin’s latest rallying call to the Judge? Do these people still think they are having private conversations?

  6. The Earthstar Alliance is the Sara I’m eyeing, Entertained.

    Her partner, Scott Myrom, appears to have become quadraplegic after an accident in 2007. They also used to operate a “non-profit” known as Life Mission Support.

  7. And the list keeps growing and growing. Isn’t it nice they provide their own signed confessions publicly. Bet she and Robert still believe they can plead the 5th and it will protect them. With all the Pro Se signed confessions, I think this brings the count up to around 54, or is it more? Hmmm, guess Andy is not the only one thw word “Delusional” applies.

  8. ….well then that would be Sara ASD Mattoon……several emails refer to her seriously injured husband.

  9. From http://www.novelguide.com/a/discover/ear_01/ear_01_00135.html

    EarthStar Alliance was founded in the mid-1990s by Sara Mattoon and Scott Myrom to assist what they believe to be a planetary transformation now occurring on Earth. They view themselves as two of a number of masters who have incarnated on Earth during this generation who, having lived some years as just a normal human being, now have become aware of their task to aid in the creation of Heaven on Earth. They believe that Earth is in the process of becoming a star as the planet moves from one of dense physical reality into a radiant body of light. The movement produces stress in humans’ dense earth bodies, and EarthStar Alliance provides a way of viewing the world, specific techniques, and new technologies to support the body during this change. These include bodywork, channeling sessions, and group events.

    I wonder why she got involved so intimately with ASD? Is Uncle Andy one of the “masters incarnated on Earth”?

    So we have the Arby Indians, Le who believes in the David Ike Aliens, drug money being laundered, the “Professor” and his certificates, and spin off ponzi schemes. Russian hackers, insiders running off with money and Donna The Brave not completing an agreed contract. I almost forgot about Chuck The Clown appearing for the defence when Andy wouldn’t ‘cos he would perjure himself.

    With these sort of business professionals involved in ASD and AVGA, how did Saint Andy & his lawyer find 3 “experts” to say ASD is not a ponzi scheme?

    The answer to that question may be in this old joke:

    A guy meets a woman in a bar, asks if she’d have sex with him for a million dollars. She says yes. He then asks if she’d have sex with him for $20.

    At that point she says, angrily, “What do you think I am, a whore?” He replies, “I thought we’d just established that. Now we’re just negotiating the price.”

  13. Oh, this is getting enticingly good now.

    A level below, however, would be the return of little joe, manning up and speaking without forked tongue and who knows, maybe would see through to taking responsibility for seeking out the truth.

    I wonder about all those ‘little joe’s’ out there watching the play clock in the 4th quarter, tick down to :00. Are they now a friend to fear?

    Fear from the evil government, fear to face family, friends & downline when the ASD ship officially sinks, fear to explain their ASD steadfastness and fear to face how they butchered the concept of ‘Belief’. By now, has it become all second nature?

    Every one of them has an opportunity to open their eyes and take responsibility for the past, present and future, grounded in truth.

    Just consider this an encouraging reminder, you don’t have to live your life in fear.

    Big Joe

  14. Sorry for the hijack but another Guenther/Richmond seems poised to fleece the ASD flock. “Cristiano” who just very well prove to be Christian Oesch, after a fittingly disjointed and rambling post over at Surf’s Up offers up an “ASD Forum and Assembly” application which asks:

    “21. ARE YOU WILLING TO SPEND MONEY IN ORDER TO RECOVER YOUR PURCHASE OF THE ASD AD PACKAGES ALONG WITH YOUR BUSINESS PROFITS UP TO DATE: ”

    And promises to:

    “.,.. to provide any members with a complete insight of the legal process and procedures that need to be followed in regards to pursuing this case in Admiralty and Maritime Jurisdiction et al.”

    Tracking several of Mr. Oesch’s e-mail address from the “hub page” he lists in his surfs up post and leads through a trail of anti government anti finance comments and websites and points to globaldebtsolution (dot) com, a site which is far more interesting on archive dot org.

    I just hope that after Moriarty, Richmond and Guenther the ASD faithful are smart enough not to line another “I can get your money back with voodoo” scammer’s pockets.

    Thank you for the links Prof. I’m coming off a very time constricted summer and am still catching up on my back episodes of “As the Surf World Turns.” Excellent work by Patrick (as his usual) in the links you posted. One thought that makes me smile, it’s about how many of these “sovereign citizen,” “tax protesters” and all around general scammers who knew what ASD was from the start, but still managed to lose money on the deal. I have sympathy for the honest victims but it’s fun to watch the guru wannabes either get taken to the cleaners or left waiting for the claw-back call to come.
