UPDATE: In Bizarre Conference Call, ‘J.C.’ Of OneX Denies He Is Owner, Says SolidTrustPay Is Out — And Claims ‘Program’ Soon Will Be Using Payment Processor That Works ‘With Bank Of America’
OneX, which went missing weeks ago, now is back — sort of.
The “program” held a bizarre conference call last night, claiming it was trying to resurrect itself after server problems that lasted weeks even as it suggested it was trying to come up with a word combination that would put questions about the program to rest.
“We just have to call certain things that we were doing a different name,” asserted lead huckster “J.C.” during the call.
Precisely what J.C. meant by his “different name” comment was unclear. Much is murky about the purported “program,” which ASD’s Bowdoin claimed last year was great for college students and could result in riches for former ASD members.
During the call, OneX created a potential PR disaster for Bank of America, which once was the banker for the AdSurfDaily Ponzi scheme and was sued by ASD members who claimed the bank aided ASD President Andy Bowdoin in foisting a massive fraud scheme on the public.
Bank of America has denied the claims against it. Those claims were part of a 2009 racketeering lawsuit filed against Bowdoin and Robert Garner, a onetime attorney for ASD.
Among other highlights from yesterday’s OneX call:
“J.C.” — whom at least some members believed was the owner of OneX — denied he was the owner. Rather, J.C. described himself as a “consultant.”
Regardless, J.C. claimed he’d written a letter to SolidTrustPay to “reverse” deposits made into the OneX account and to return the money to the senders. OneX had received the money from about 22 OneX members as a result of a programming error, J.C. explained. He did not explain how a consultant — as opposed to an owner — had any authority to ask SolidTrustPay to do anything.
In any event, OneX no longer is doing business with Canada-based SolidTrustPay, according to J.C.
J.C. said the “program” has another payment-processing solution waiting in the wings and may make an announcement Thursday. He did not identify the processor, claimed OneX again would open itself to member withdrawals — but further claimed the new processor “is wanting us to stagger” payouts and to begin with “a small amount.”
“We don’t know the numbers yet. Next Thursday we can talk about it,” J.C. said.
Later in the call, with the name of the payment processor still not disclosed, J.C. said this:
“And I will tell you also that it’s not one that is outside the United States. They work with Bank of America.”
