TrafficPowerline, a “program” whose thread-starter at the MoneyMakerGroup Ponzi forum has more than 4,700 posts, reportedly is threatening BehindMLM.com because of a negative review. (More on the bizarre and sinister threat to artificially link BehindMLM to malware and porn below.)
The mere presence of TrafficPowerline on MoneyMakerGroup suggests tainted proceeds from any number of scams could be flowing to the emerging program. “proReflex” is the starter in a thread dated July 23. The post begins with the classic line of “I am not the Admin.”
MoneyMakerGroup is listed in U.S. federal court files as a place from which Ponzi schemes are promoted. Infamous schemes such as Zeek Rewards, AdSurfDaily, TelexFree and many others were listed there, contributing to a condition under which polluted money flows from scheme to scheme to scheme.
A “program” similar to TrafficPowerline — Traffic Monsoon — was shut down by the SEC on July 26, just three days after TrafficPowerline made its MoneyMakerGroup debut. Like TrafficPowerline, TrafficMonsoon was a Ponzi-board scheme.
In a post dated Sept. 5, BehindMLM reported that Pearse Donnelly of TrafficPowerline and an earlier scheme known as “MoBrabus” was the source of the threat. MoBrabus also was listed on the Ponzi boards. One of its payment processors was Payza, which the court-appointed receiver in the Zeek case has accused of facilitating that mammoth, cross-border scheme.
Donnelly, according to BehindMLM, demanded the review be taken down within 72 hours or else a “negative SEO” campaign against BehindMLM would begin.
Tools used against the well-known review site would include “SGA, Xrummer, Scrape BoX, SeNuke and other SEO tools at our disposal or from service providers to create thousands of low PR, PBN, PN, Porn, Link Farms and Malware site backlinks to your site along with teen-girl 10% free sex online 9% harmful for your computer 8% do not open this link 8% porn 8% adult content harmful 8% computer virus 8% dangerous 8%.”
The apparent TrafficPowerline aim is to artificially damage BehindMLM’s worth with Google and other search engines through fraudulently placed links.
Despite bizarrely claiming he was “nicely” requesting BehindMLM to kill the review and not issuing a threat. Donnelly reportedly went on to write that “I am fucking serious OZ do not fuck with me take down the fucking pages or I will make it my little project to fuck your site up.”
The threat did not explain now a negative review on BehindMLM could be any worse than a fawning sales pitch on MoneyMakerGroup. “Programs” that have appeared on that forum have caused billions of dollars in losses globally.
Sites sometimes have been known to overplay their hands when trying to bludgeon critics. KlearGear.com allegedly once threatened negative reviewers with a fine of $3,500. The site ended up getting sued by a public advocacy group.
Because the PP Blog today was able to access the TrafficPowerline website, it means the site is accessible in the United States — after the TrafficMonsoon case and the allegations of securities fraud and after California passed a law that backs consumers if companies try to strongarm consumers by limiting speech through nondisparagement clauses.
