DONATION POST: PP Blog Needs Your Help To Get Through June

Dear Readers,

This is always the hardest post of the month — the one in which I ask for your continued help to get through the upcoming month.

The need right now is on the order of $300. That sum would take the instant crisis out of play. It has not been easy keeping the Blog going during these lean times, and I am very grateful for the support I’ve received. Every story you’ve read this month, for example, was made possible by readers who contributed last month.

There are some important stories in the offing, stories that may help open eyes, shape thoughts and keep both longtime and new readers out of harm’s way. The fraud sphere constantly evolves, the language changes, the wordplay and disguises get more sinister. This Blog exists to help readers understand the various means by which fraudsters and their collective of online shills separate people by the thousands from their money.

Please help if you are able.

Patrick

  1. Quick note: Naturally, this post is being attacked by a certain party now on his THIRD user ID and email address (at least).

    Once again, the would-be post introduces a conspiracy theory. That theory is juxtaposed against the theory that I’m scamming readers.

    “SCAM,” the poster writes — in all uppercase.

    And for a bit of added menacing, the would-be poster this time chose the word “Proxies” as part of his contemplated new user ID.

  2. I am guessing that since you promised no return each day or some form of rebates, their idea that asking fr donations is a scam would mean the Red Cross and Save the Children are also scams.

    I wouldn’t pay too much attention to the morally deficient naysayers. What you are doing is a service that takes money from their pockets; they are the true scan artists.

  3. Hi Don,

    What “he” is trying to do is to remind me that he’s still out there. He’ll never be caught because he uses “proxies” — and he has power over me that he could choose to exercise at any moment.

    I report on the threatening/menacing communications and the bids to intimidate me because they are an important part of the overall story.

    Today’s bid noted above ended with these words:

    “isn’t so cool when somebody tries to close you down is it ?”

  4. Quick note: Another menacing communication — this one at 7:22 p.m. EDT.

    ” . . . keep posting… you will get what you deserve, threat; possibly. you tell me . . . ” he says.

    And he wants me to know he knows my full name — something he also pointed out on May 7 at 9:18 a.m. EDT. Here’s what he said then:

    ” . . . I wouldn’t post this if I were you . . .”

    It was aimed at this thread:

    ooooooooh, yes please.

    Or, does he mean you will get what HE thinks you deserve ??

    Hard to say, LRM. These days, however, it seems that some folks cheer when dogs die or computers get fried — or both.

    Odd. But some folks seem to think those are excellent “defenses” for JSS/JBP.

    He can’t be taken seriously without multiple exclamation points after the word ‘scam’.

  8. Your “attacker” is certainly a very special case. He knows who you are (wow, like you ever tried to hide it), he knows your IP and that of the rest of us (wow, that will change the world), he still can’t figure out a way to justify the guaranteed 2% daily payout offered by Fred Mann to members of his JustBeenPaid scheme and lastly he thinks he is very clever (which is rather sad when you think about it.)

    Good luck with your appeal. This blog is certainly one that is worth keeping, especially if it provokes such a rush of blood to the head of ponzi shills and the like. You must be getting it right. LOL

  9. I am unsure what good it will do “him” to have your IP address, since the IP is that of your host, as is mine. The only way anyone can get you actual info is by court order. Remember the “Ning 9”? Fat lot of good it did Friedman’s law firm to try getting personal info on those individuals.

  10. asking for donations? ha ha.

    maybe you should have joined JSS tripler after all.

    or maybe look into the next one they open, i’m sure it would be just as big.
