UPDATE: WordPress Deactivates JSS/JBP Affiliate Blog That Prompted Investors To ‘Look At The Banks [That] Are Only Offering You .05-1% APR On Yearly Basis’

WordPress suspended this JSS Tripler/JustBeenPaid affiliate Blog earlier today. Google had indexed a post on the site only hours earlier.

UPDATED 12:20 P.M. ET (U.S.A.) Within six hours of Google indexing (earlier today) a JSS Tripler/JustBeenPaid affiliate Blog using WordPress as a free platform from which to attract investors, Word Press caused the post to disappear.

Kudos to WordPress!

Visitors to the Blog URL of dailyrevenueresourcegroup.wordpress.com now see a message that the Blog “has been archived or suspended for a violation” of the WordPress Terms of Service.

The keyword title of the post, which now cannot be seen, was “How To Invest In JustBeenPaid.” The title ended with an exclamation point.

The post appeared to be a reposting of companion JSS/JBP-related content that appeared on Blogger, yet another free Blogging platform. The Blogger post remains active.

Amid claims that JSS/JBP’s advertised daily payout rate of 2 percent “is not a bad rate,” the now-missing WordPress post asked investors to compare JSS/JBP to a bank and planted the seed that prospects should choose the absurd program over the bank.

“Look at the banks [sic] they are only offering you .05-1% apr on yearly basis for savings accounts,” the now-missing WordPress post claimed.

In its introduction, the now-missing post claimed, “In this article it is my intent to help those that are unsure of how JustBeenPaid works and how to invest in it.”

Despite the WordPress ban, the same phrasing continues to appear on the Blogger site at Blogsport.com — along with at least three JSS/JBP affiliate links. The Blogger post is dated today.

It is common for promoters of highly questionable “opportunities” and even outright scams to rely on free hosting services in bids to recruit new affiliates and “earn” downline commissions.

Claims about JSS/JBP have been under investigation by CONSOB, the Italian securities regulator, since at least Jan. 23.

JSS/JBP does not disclose where it operates from. The scheme’s preposterous purported daily payout rate of 2 percent is double that of AdSurfDaily, which the U.S. Secret Service described in 2008 as an international Ponzi scheme that had gathered tens of millions of dollars.

Frederick Mann, JSS/JBP’s purported operator, described himself in 2008 promos as an ASD pitchman. In December 2010, ASD President Andy Bowdoin was indicted on charges of wire fraud, securities fraud and selling unregistered securities.

JSS/JBP has no known securities registrations. The “program” operates in an MLM-like fashion in which prospects are told they’ll receive a return of 60 percent a month for their “positions” — on top of two-tier affiliate commissions totaling 15 percent for recruiting prospects who send money to the company via offshore payment processors.

Among other things, the Terms for JSS/JBP makes members affirm they are not government spies or media lackeys.

An ad banner accompanying the still-active Blogger post solicits prospects to “Start collecting Unlimited $15 payments Straight to your Alertpay account.” When the banner is clicked, it lands on a JBP affiliate page that asserts, “Quickly Get CLEVER[.] GET PAID FOREVER!”

  1. The keyword title of the post, which now cannot be seen, was “How To Invest In JustBeenPaid.” The title ended with an exclamation point.

    Perhaps it was suspended because one of the other scammers complained there were not enough exclamation points,

  2. Quick note: It seems there is a second WordPress-hosted Blog in this JSS/JBP affiliate string, which also includes a Blogger Blog hosted by Google.

    The second WP-hosted Blog appears to exist as a means for the JSS/JBP affiliate to repost content from the suspended site described in the story above — in other words, to create more “free” channels to the JSS/JBP sign-up page. The URL of the second WP-hosted site closely resembles the URL of the suspended site. It does not include the word “daily.”

    As the PP Blog reported March 16, JSS/JBP has achieved remarkable virality.

    “Chained Blogs” have been part of that virality.

  3. I don’t think WordPress deleted the blog so much for the JBP/JSS content, but merely because posting affiliate links on wordpress.com blogs is against their terms of service…simple as that.
