‘MyAdvertisingPays’ And A Bromide Thrice Vomited

mapsbromidelargeIt turns out that a hackneyed expression currently in play within MyAdvertisingPays (MAPS) is a lightly remixed version of one used in the collapsed Zeek Rewards and Achieve Community schemes.

Will this thrice-vomited bromide become a kiss of death for MAPS?

Back before the SEC shut down Zeek in 2012, the $897 million scheme traded in part on  “If you want things in your life to change, you have to change things in your life.”

With Achieve prior to its shutdown by the SEC last month, it was “If you do not GO after what you want, you’ll never have it.”

On Twitter, a promoter of the emerging MAPS scheme is prospecting for recruits with a similar line. “If you want something you’ve never had, then you’ve got to do something you’ve never done!”

The PP Blog reported on March 9 that the name of MAPS appears in a TelexFree-related class-action lawsuit originally filed in federal court in New York and later transferred to Massachusetts. Even though MAPS isn’t named a defendant, it is clear that both private lawyers and government lawyers are aware of MAPS.

With an alleged haul of more than $1.8 billion, TelexFree likely is the largest MLM HYIP fraud of all time. Zeek, the previous title-holder in terms of its alleged haul, probably now is second. Both schemes may have created hundreds of thousands of victims.

Zeek’s receiver currently is involved in an international paper chase to round up assets for victims. Some of the money allegedly was routed to the Cook Islands (South Pacific) through a California company and then used to buy property in the Turks and Caicos (North Atlantic).

MAPS, which appears to have a paper presence on the Caribbean island of Anguilla but likely operates from the United States, recently claimed to have “110676+ Users.” Given its business model and the presence of serial promoters of fraud schemes in its membership ranks, MAPS very well could be a litigation target-in-the-making.

Regardless, many MLM HYIP Ponzi promoters will pretend that the membership should not be concerned — as they did with Zeek and Achieve Community.

  1. Hi Patrick, MAPS is actually operating from the UK. Mike Deese closed the US office of MAPS as he knew SEC would be on to him. MAPS has it’s HQ at the following address Address: Unit 8, Watch Oak Business Centre, Battle,East Sussex,TN33 0GB, United Kingdom.

    Mike Deese is featured as the CEO. But the day to day running of the business is run by two failured business people Tony and Lynne Booth http://companycheck.co.uk/company/08927115/MY-ADVERTISING-PAYS-LIMITED/companies-house-docs

    The address above is just a post box and is shared by a number companies, again just as a post box mailing address. The address in Anguilla, is also a mailing address but MAPS are also using it for off shore banking

    Simon Stepsys a convicted internet fraduster and is heavily involved in promoting and recruiting people to the scam. He hosts a number of recuitment drives in London, Cheshire and Manchester. We understand he will be heading to the US to promote MAPS. Stepsys was also involved in the defunct ponzi scheme Banners Broker along with the Booths.
