As the PP Blog reported nearly a year ago, AdClickXpress (ACX) was a continuation of an absurd scam that began years ago as JSSTripler/JustBeenPaid, with antigovernment zealot and “sovereign citizen” sympathizer Frederick Mann at the helm.
Just in time for the 2015 holiday season, there are reports that ACX has suspended payouts or is making selective payouts. In HYIP Ponzi Land, this is consistent with “Black December,” the collapse of a “program” because too many people are trying to withdraw or the operator just decides to keep all the Ponzi cash.
“I have not be able to withdraw,” a self-identified ACX membeer told the PP Blog today. “They keep changing their withdrawal policy and now we are all [convinced] it is a scam.”
See the PP Blog’s tag archive of references to “JustBeenPaid.”
From the PP Blog on Nov. 29, 2014 (italics added):
By the Terms alone, ACX makes co-conspirators of its members. And after this artifice is carried out, it divines a construction by which it will penalize “significantly” and unilaterally calculate damages purportedly caused by those same members who’d dare post “negative information . . . even if it’s absolutely true.”
Separately, there are unconfirmed reports on MoneyMakerGroup that Frederick Mann, the purported operator of JSS/JPB and the de facto inspiration behind the follow-up scams, has died. Mann, a former pitchmen for the AdSurfDaily Ponzi scheme, once directed traffic to videos featuring Francis Schaeffer Cox, the now-convicted Alaska “sovereign citizen” and militia man implicated in a plot to murder public officials.
In 2012, Mann described government workers as “part of a criminal gang of robbers, thieves, murderers, liars, imposters.”
