Now, Highly Confusing, Competing Claims About The AdSurfDaily Remissions Program Appear On RipoffReport.com; Post Fractures Facts; DON’T BE CONFUSED

Andy Bowdoin

First, don’t be confused. Rust Consulting Inc. is the official claims administrator under contract with the U.S. government to handle claims from victims of the alleged AdSurfDaily Ponzi scheme. ASD also is known as ASD Cash Generator.

See this document at Justia.com. It is signed by Ronald C. Machen Jr., the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, and appears on the court docket of U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer. The document lists the URL for the official claims site: http://www.adsurfdailyremission.com

Today a highly confusing report appeared on RipoffReport.com suggesting that, not only was ASD a ripoff,  but so is the claims program. The PP Blog became aware of the report after receiving a message from Google Alerts, which the Blog uses to track mentions of ASD Cash Generator across the web.

The PP Blog sought to contact Rust about the Ripoff Report, but it was past business hours. The Blog left a detailed message for the firm.

Here is the headline of the Ripoff Report: “Asd cash generator ad Surf daily remission administrator Beware…scam, Internet . . .”

Meanwhile, the report says this, “do not reply to remission forms that says from secret services asking for your bank account and social security number informations. secret services do not send out such forms asking specific account numbers. and secret services do not use post office box numbers address.”

At the same time, the report urges readers to “report your forms to your better business bureau.”

Other mistakes dot the Ripoff Report — for example, the Minnesota address of the claims administrator is listed as the address for ASD and the URL for the official claims site is incorrect.

The U.S. Secret Service conducted the ASD investigation. Rust, the government-approved claims administrator, is using a Post Office Box to receive completed claims forms. The company specifically informs ASD members on the remissions site that it is asking victims to provide bank-account information so they can receive restitution by electronic deposit.

“Payment will be disbursed by electronic funds transfer after all Remission Forms are decided,” the company notes on the website. “Therefore it is necessary to ensure that the section requiring your banking information is completed in full on the Remission Form in order to receive a remission payment.”

The official remissions form also asks for a Social Security number or Employer Identification Number (EIN).

Why a poster on RipoffReport.com appeared to imply that the “secret services” did not authorize the information to be gathered was unclear. The U.S. Secret Service has the duty of assisting the U.S. Department of Justice in reviewing the claims.

The ASD case has been marked by one bizarre event after another. In recent weeks, some ASD members have tried to confuse others about the remissions process.

ASD President Andy Bowdoin, who was indicted on felony charges earlier this month, is scheduled to make his first court appearance in the District of Columbia tomorrow.

  4. There’s been speculation that that ASD database has been sold many times over to “outside parties” by insiders. That said and speculation aside, if the ASD database has not been sold as a validated “suckers list”, it will be the first time in the history of these scams that it has not.

    It’s often been pointed out that the consequences of being inadvertently involved with one of these schemes extend a lot further than “just” losing money.

    Judging by the number of complaints on the ‘net by ex members, the AdSurfDaily database appears to have either been either sold or stolen at some point and many ex members have been contacted by a number of secondary scams.
