Zeek Rewards “winner” Todd Disner owes the receivership estate $2,079,757.88, according to a motion asking the court clerk to enter a default judgment.

Receiver Kenneth D. Bell filed for the judgment July 9 in federal court for the Western District of North Carolina, seeking not only Disner’s alleged Zeek haul of $1,800,037.06, but also interest of $279,720.82.

Zeek’s records show that Disner paid $11,810.49 into the “program,” beginning with an initial outlay of $480 on March 4, 2011, shortly after Zeek started business.

From that initial outlay and others, $1,811,847.55 flowed back to him, the receiver advised Senior U.S. District Judge Graham C. Mullen and the court clerk. The lion’s share of Disner’s outlay — $10,000 — was paid to Zeek on July 6, 2012. Zeek collapsed six weeks later, on Aug. 17, 2012.

Disner’s last Zeek withdrawal totaled $102,617.73 and occurred on July 30, 2012, less than three weeks prior to the SEC action that spelled doom for the “program.” His largest withdrawal, according to the receiver’s filing, was for $177,026.27 on July 9, 2012.

A former AdSurfDaily Ponzi pitchman who once sued the United States for alleged misdeeds in the ASD case, Disner regularly withdrew tens of thousands of dollars at a time from Zeek, according to the receiver’s filing.

Zeek operated as part of Rex Venture Group.

Bell also filed today for clerk’s default judgment against alleged winners David Sorrells and Michael Van Leeuwen. The receiver is seeking $1,197,241.12 from Sorrells, including $157,672.63 in interest. Meanwhile, he is seeking $1,617,444.99 from Van Leeuwen, including $213,012.07 in interest.

Disner’s unsuccessful lawsuit against the United States for allegedly violating his right to privacy in the ASD case was docketed on Nov. 7, 2011.

Bell’s filing shows that Zeek paid Disner $7,199.49 on the same day.

A federal judge tossed Disner’s ASD-related lawsuit on Aug. 29, 2012, the same day ASD operator Andy Bowdoin was sentenced to federal prison after admitting ASD was a Ponzi scheme. Only 12 days earlier, the SEC sued Zeek, alleging a massive Ponzi- and pyramid scheme.

The U.S. Secret Service has been involved in both the ASD and Zeek probes.

    He’s a defendant/alleged insider in one of the receiver’s civil actions.

    Dawn Wright-Olivares and Daniel Olivares have pleaded guilty to crimes. Their plea agreements contemplated cooperation. No sentencing date has been set.

  5. Question,

    I have read where ZeekRewards quit paying affiliates in May or June 2012. If this true, how did Disner withdrew $280,000.00 in July 2012. Did this money come out of his NxPay account and not straight from ZR? This huge withdrawal has a “foul” odor. I suspect inside knowledge, but proving it is another thing. This is going to be very interesting.

  6. Unless I blinked my eyes, which is very possible, but it looks like some of the “mega winners” made withdrawals on 16 August 2012 and the SEC closed ZR on 17 August 2012 speaks volumes.
