Site That Sells Zeek Rewards ‘Customers’ Uses PayPal, Serves Confusing Pop-Up Screens, References AdSurfDaily Figure Todd Disner — And Sends Traffic To JSSTripler/JustBeenPaid Site That May Have ‘Sovereign Citizens’ Link

Depending on how they navigate the site, PennyAuctionCustomers.com visitors may encounter a confusing series of screens and ultimately may be shown an ad for JSS Tripler/JustBeenPaid, which may have ties to the "sovereign citizens" movement. The PennyAuctionCustomers site purports to sell customers for the ZeekRewards MLM "program" that plants the seed it provides a daily return of between 1 percent and 2 percent while not being a "pyramid scheme" and while not constituting an investment program.

PennyAuctionCustomers.com advertises that it sells “customers” to members of the Zeek Rewards MLM, collects money through PayPal, serves confusing pop-up messages, uses the name of AdSurfDaily figure Todd Disner in its meta data — and sends traffic to the preposterous JSS Tripler/JustBeenPaid “program” that advertises a return of 60 percent a month.

Whether the site has any affiliation with Disner is unclear. What is clear is that Disner is a Zeek Rewards member who sued the U.S. government last year for alleged misdeeds in the AdSurfDaily Ponzi case, including a claim that federal prosecutors and the U.S. Secret Service had relied on a “tissue of lies” in bringing the ASD case.

This Zeek ad attributed to former AdSurfDaily member Dwight Owen Schweitzer paints Zeek as an investment program through which participants can "earn 1%+ a day compounded."

Disner’s co-plaintiff in the case was fellow ASD (and Zeek) member Dwight Owen Schweitzer, a former attorney whose license was suspended in Connecticut. The government asked a federal judge last month to dismiss the Disner/Schweitzer complaint, pointing out that ASD President Andy Bowdoin had pleaded guilty to wire fraud in the ASD case.

Bowdoin, 77, is now detained in Washington, D.C., awaiting formal sentencing by U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer in August. Court papers show that Bowdoin admitted ASD was a Ponzi scheme and that he had presided over an illegal money-making business since the inception of ASD in 2006.

Zeek’s business model closely resembles that of ASD. Like ASD, Zeek plants the seed that it provides a daily return that corresponds to an annual return in excess of 300 percent. Zeek participants must place an ad online daily to earn the purported daily payout. ASD members were required to view ads.

The U.S. Secret Service seized more than $80 million in the ASD Ponzi case, including more than $65.8 million from Bowdoin’s bank accounts in August 2008.

When the PP Blog visited PennyAuctionCustomers.com, accessed the “FAQ” page and sought to leave the page, the Blog’s browser encountered multiple pop-up screens that displayed confusing messages. Eventually the Blog was shown a page on the site with banner ads for the JSS/JBP “program” and a “program” known as Banners Broker.

The banner ad near the bottom of this page on the PennyAuctionCustomers.com website points visitors to the JSS Tripler/JustBeenPaid "program" after soliciting visitors to purchase "customers" for the Zeek Rewards MLM "program." A JSS/JBP site loads when the "Triple Your Money" banner is clicked.

“DO YOU LIKE ZEEK REWARDS?” the PennyAuctionCustomers site inquires.

“WELL YOU WILL LOVE THIS,” it asserts. “Two Other Highly Lucrative Programs That Do Not Require Any Sponsoring of Other Affiliates That You May Wish To Join If You Are Looking To Boost Your Income!”

It then points visitors toward JSS/JBP and Banners Broker.

Like Zeek (and ASD before it), the JSS/JBP and Banners Broker “programs” are being advertised on well-known Ponzi scheme forums such as TalkGold and MoneyMakerGroup. The various promotions lead to questions about whether fraudulent schemes are simply recycling money from scam to scam to scam, polluting the money stream at multiple points nationally and internationally.

These phrases are among the meta data on the PennyAuctionCustomers site:

  • zeekrewards 90 day strategy
  • zeekrewards calculator
  • is zeekrewards legit
  • is zeekrewards legal
  • todd disner zeek rewards

An Oregon entity known as Media Clinch LLC appears to be conducting the Zeek “customer” sales through PayPal while at once pointing traffic toward Banners Broker and JSS/JBP, which purportedly is operated by Frederick Mann. Mann and JSS/JBP may have ties to the so-called “sovereign citizens” movement in which adherents display an irrational belief that laws do not apply to them and courts have no jurisdiction over them.

Although JSS/JBP appears to rely on “offshore” payment processors linked to fraud scheme after fraud scheme, the PennyAuctionCustomers Zeek promos through the Media Clinch LLC PayPal account introduces the prospect that soiled proceeds from multiple fraud schemes also could be flowing into PayPal.

Media Clinch LLC, according to Oregon records, is managed by Sean Walters. Zeek has an affiliate by the same name.

  2. The website in the screen dump for Dwight Owen Schweitzer – yougetpaidtoadvertise – is/was promoted as ponzi forum moneymakergroup. It was described as:

    To top this off, it’s a 2×21 forced matrix, so no need to submit your url to the team, it automatically fills the next in line!

    Don’t walk….RUN! to this one folks. Nothing ever before like it. The companies 14 years old and very successful, BUT they just added this 2×21 forced matrix to the program for the first time!

    “forced matrix” is one of many euphemisms for pyramid scheme used by ponzi players.

  3. Tony:

    A “forced matrix” is a completely legitimate network marketing compensation plan.

    The legality of a program is based on (1) legitimate product and pricing structure and; (2) a requirement to extend marketing efforts to earn (i.e. the Howey Test) among other things.

    But, merely using a force matrix compensation plan does not make it illegal nor a ponzi.

  4. “forced matrix”, while not illegal in itself, means the scheme emphasizes recruiting (i.e. fill the matrix with warm bodies) instead of selling products. So it is a strong indication (among other indicators) of pyramid scheme, esp. if the payout is tied to “cycling” out of the forced matrix.

    Would you believe there is actually a “Network Marketing Business School”? Who would have thought it.

    “Understanding the Forced Matrix Plan”

    The diagram looks like a typical pyramid to me. Similar diagrams have been used to explain the compensation structure of many pyramid schemes.

    K. Chang: “forced matrix”, while not illegal in itself, means the scheme emphasizes recruiting (i.e. fill the matrix with warm bodies) instead of selling products.

    I don’t have the direct reference, but a body like the SEC has stated that the “emphasis” has to be on selling a product, not recruiting. Otherwise it is illegal (or words to that effect).

  6. Any matrix plan “Looks” like a pyramid on paper, the important thing is the nature of the economic activity and the details of the pay plan. If you earn a percentage of the revenue generated from the retail sales of the people you recruited and fill your matrix neither I nor your local regulatory agency will have a problem with it. But there are 101 ways to play with the numbers (102 with Zeek Rewards).

    I realize the following is more or less an unknowable statistic but I wonder what the ratio is between the amount of money ZR has spent on the Gerry Nehras, Richard Waaks, and Keith Laggos’ of the world compared to the amount “earned” by the Todd Disners, “Team” Aaron and Shara, Jerry Napier, Trudy Gilmond and all the other serial ponzi/pyramid pimps that are either top grossing affiliates or employees of Zeek Rewards? I wonder if it’s possibly as low as 1 to 10? I doubt it.

    It amuses me that ponzi pimp Jerry Napier (if Dawn was being honest) was the one who recommended Nehra, Waak and Laggos to ZR. It was a shrewd move by an experienced pro, hire top shelf legal (and consulting) talent who know where the line between zealously defending their clients interests and perjury really is and who have a proven track records of walking that line for a big enough paycheck. Please note that neither Nehra nor Waak have thus far issued any public statements Vis-a-vis Zeek Rewards and Laggos’ opinion is only his opinion. And there is reason to suspect that published opinion was largely ghost written (by Dawn) and published in exchange for a large number of preordered copies of Mr. Laggos’s Network Marketing Business Journal.

    A picture is developing, Zeek Rewards is accepting advice and counsel not only from MLM’s best and brightest but also from the ponzi world’s greediest and seediest. But I’m sure they know which side of their bread the butter is on.

    According to Businessforhome.org ran by Ted Nuyten, they are 4 out of 8 earners at Zeek for 2011.

    See if you recognize the other four.

  9. Looks like Disner and Schweitzer have much more to worry about than just ASD. They are exposed on so many levels as ponzi pimos.

    I have no intention of playing a “forced matrix” pyramid scheme, so I didn’t spend much time looking into it. However, typing ‘fsa “forced matrix”‘ into google and selecting only pages from the UK, only brings up 3 results. The first is this interesting report:
    http://webfiles.faircount.co.uk/IFCCTRepository/World_Money_Laundering_Report/wmlrvol7no07.pdf
    It’s a report written in 2006 by Vortex Centrum Limited, part of the Anti Money Laundering Network.

    The report describes a “Bryan John Marsden” (anyone heard of him before?) and something called PIPS, PureInvestor, PICPAY. PureInvestor is described in the report as “7 x 4 Forced Matrix”. There are other obvious ponzi schemes listed. The report is worth reading & comparing with any obvious ponzi/pyramid/forced matrix scheme since.

    Until someone proves otherwise, I’ll stand by my assertion that “forced matrix” is another name for “pyramid scheme”.

  11. Two solid, legitimate companies that come to mind are GBG (a nutritional company) and Trafficwave (a top notch autoresponder system).

    GBG has a 2×30 matrix (I believe) and Trafficwave is a 3×10. They each require an affiliate to make sales in order to earn in the matrix very deep.

    Again, the key is the product and compliance with the “Howey Test”.

    The Bryan Marsden 4×7 was just smoke and mirrors for the ponzi, same thing with the matrices that are part of the JSSTripler program. People don’t care about them, they want the passive income.

    At totally legit companies like GBG and Trafficwave you have to make sales to earn.
