INCREDIBLE: JSSTripler/JustBeenPaid Operator Frederick Mann Now Billed As Pitchman For Upstart Scheme Known As ‘ClickPaid’
UPDATED 8:51 A.M. ET (FEB. 20, U.S.A.) Frederick Mann, a former pitchman for the AdSurfDaily Ponzi scheme and the operator of the bizarre JSSTripler/JustBeenPaid “program” that advertised a return of 2 percent a day and morphed into a “program” known as “ProfitClicking” in the days after the SEC called rival HYIP Zeek Rewards a $600 million Ponzi- and pyramid scheme in August 2012, is back, according to promos for a new “opportunity” known as “ClickPaid.”
The news comes as ProfitClicking appears to be in a state of collapse. Like ASD, Zeek, JSS/JBP and ProfitClicking before it, ClickPaid has a presence on the MoneyMakerGroup and TalkGold Ponzi forums. Mann purportedly “retired” from JSS/JBP last year, but not before claiming that government workers were part of “a criminal gang of robbers, thieves, murderers, liars, imposters.”
He also speculated that the U.S. government could target JSS/JBP’s servers in a “cruise missile” attack.
Mann is believed to be in his eighties and, at a minimum, to be sympathetic to the “sovereign citizens” movement. At the time of this post, ClickPaid is showcasing a ProfitClicking-like launch-countdown timer on its website. Visitors are invited to listen to a “World Wide Pre Launch Live Broadcast Call with Frederick Mann” tomorrow. A tab/subtab on the website styled “MEDIA/Upcoming Events” claims Mann will “personally” introduce “Click Paidto [sic] the world” tomorrow and will be featured on “the live launch call” Feb. 27.
The ClickPaid Terms — like the Terms of JSS/JBP and ProfitClicking — makes members affirm they are not with the “government.”
If the nongovernment affirmation were not enough, Click Paid also says it reserves the right to enroll Click Paid members in other programs. (Verbatim/italics added):
19. From time to time, the Click Paid managers may import the entire Click Paid membership into another program, maintaining the Click Paid genealogy. This will also be done on the basis that people imported into the other program will have to activate their accounts by a certain deadline in order to become members of the other program. If they don’t activate their accounts by the deadline, they will be dropped from the other program. One benefit of this procedure is that Click Paid members receive their Click Paid downline in the other program (to the extent that accounts are activated). Another benefit is that those who don’t want to be in the new program will be dropped automatically if they do nothing. Prior to such an import,Click Paid managers will inform all Click Paid members via email and in the Member Area of the expected import and the reasons for it. Subsequent to the import, managers of the other program will email those imported from Click Paid to explain the benefits of the other program, and to provide them with the procedure to activate their accounts, should they wish to become members of the other program. More than one email may be sent by the managers of the other program. (Click Paid members who don’t activate their accounts in the other program by the deadline will be dropped from that program.) Click Paid members agree to receive the emails referred to in this rule 19. (Privacy: Any import per this rule 19 will be on the basis that the managers of the other program will not abuse the Click Paid email addresses in any way. Once the deadline has been reached, all unactivated accounts in the other program will be deleted and the email addresses for these deleted accounts will not be retained by managers of the other program.)
