UPDATE: PP Blog Now Starting To Get Bizarre Spam Related To BannersBroker ‘Program’

americaatrisk4UPDATED 7:06 P.M. ET (U.S.A.) The PP Blog today began to receive bizarre spam related to the purported BannersBroker “program,” a Ponzi-forum darling.

Senders from separate IPs who deemed themselves “Banners Broker” transmitted spam at 5:27 p.m. (ET) and 5:29 p.m. today. (UPDATE: 7:06 P.M. Actually, the 5:27 spammer deemed himself/herself “Banners Broker” and the 5:29 spammer deemed himself/herself  “Banners Brokers.”)

One of the spams appeared to make the assertion that the PP Blog was created specifically in response to the Banners Broker “program” and that the Blog is in cahoots with at least two other sites to make Banners Broker look bad. The same would-be spam, which appeared to originate in the United Kingdom, also appeared to advance an argument that individuals should not question the Banners Broker “program.”

An earlier spam — one that appeared to originate in Poland with a different email address but largely the same user name and same URL to a website that appears to sell purported Banners Broker sales aids — took a potshot at a Blogger named Finch. (The later spam described in the paragraph above also took a potshot at Rod Cook, the “MLM Watchdog.“)

The PP Blog’s first reference to Banners Broker was published on June 17, 2012, when the Blog reported that a site that claimed it sold “customers” to Zeek Rewards members also was pushing traffic to Banners Broker and JSS Tripler/JustBeenPaid, the bizarre, 730-percent-a-year “program” purportedly operated by Frederick Mann.

Mann also was a pitchman for the AdSurfDaily Ponzi scheme. JSS/JBP, which later morphed into a “program” known as ProfitClicking, may have ties to the sovereign-citizens movement.

In August 2012, the SEC called Zeek Rewards a $600 million Ponzi- and pyramid fraud. Zeek, JSS/JBP, ProfitClicking and Banners Broker all were promoted from the Ponzi boards and had members in common, which leads to questions about whether the schemes and their financial vendors came into possession of funds tainted by multiple fraud schemes.

The commonality of the “programs” also leads to questions about whether satellite companies are developing “leads” programs and purported sales aids to benefit from securities-fraud schemes before they are detected.

The spammer at 5:27 p.m. today asserted that he (or she) was sure companies such as Banners Broker “will fight back through the legal system and get [Blogs critical of such programs] shut down.”

In July, less than a month before the collapse of Zeek, Zeek figure Robert Craddock sought to shut down the website of Zeek critic K. Chang. It became the “Most Important” story of the year on the PP Blog.

Banners Broker uses at least two of the payment processors used by Zeek: Payza and SolidTrustPay.

  1. Quick note: Well, it’s even crazier now: Two more spams have some in with the same usernames cited above and two different email addresses and IPs — only these ones purport to be on the opposite side of the issue even though they’re proomting the same URL noted in the story above.


  2. Split personalities?

  3. Newbie shills ???

  4. Lynndel “Lynn” Edgington: Split personalities?

    Maybe. More came in overnight — and it’s no accident. It is very aggressive cyberstalking that more or less follows an earlier pattern.

    A snippet:

    “When you make false accusations, you can get done.”

    Another snippet: “Suck [blank] . . .”

    I’d say soldier/enforcer/protector for the cause is more like it.
