DEVELOPING STORY: JSS Tripler/JustBeenPaid HYIP Ponzi Scheme Appears To Be Morphing Into Autosurf Ponzi Scheme; Cheerleaders Try To Tame The Troops On Ponzi Boards Amid Reports That Frederick Mann Has ‘Retired’
Just days ago Frederick Mann — the purported operator of the JSS Tripler/JustBeenPaid “program” — was hinting that his fraud scheme that advertised a return of 60 percent a month needed a new name because critics were being entirely too negative. Like the now defunct Zeek Rewards “program,” which last week was described by the SEC as a $600 million Ponzi and pyramid scheme that was selling unregistered securities as investment contracts, JSS/JBP had served up one public-relations disaster after another.
There was the little matter of an ad for JSS/JBP that appeared on a website known as Vatican Assassins, for instance. And there was “Ping,” a woman who’d claimed she had heart problems, was managing multiple JSS/JBP accounts, that her sister’s home was in trouble — and that JSS/JBP ignored her support tickets for weeks.
Mann speculated that the company could come under attack by American cruise missiles.
JSS/JBP found itself wrestling another PR flap in the past 24 hours, amid Ponzi-forum reports that Mann suddenly had “retired” and that the JSS/JBP “program” had been acquired and wrapped into an upstart autosurf known as ProfitClicking.
A quick analysis of the shell of the ProfitClicking website suggests that the emerging “opportunity” plans to be every bit as disingenuous as the five-alarm fraud scheme it apparently has swallowed. Ponzi-forum pretentiousness on places such as MoneyMakerGroup can be paraphrased as such:
- I didn’t sign up for no stinkin’ autosurf. Where the hell is the money I gave the JSS/JBP scammers to see if I could profit from the scam?
- Give these honest scammers a chance to see if they can pull off their new scam.
- Be patient with the new scammers and don’t make too much noise. Remember, we have to pretend they’re not scammers and we’re not scammers to maximize the effectiveness of the scam.
Perhaps to make its “sovereign citizen” clientele feel at home, ProfitClicking has adopted all or part of the former JSS/JBP terms, which makes members affirm they are not with the “government.”
Like the collapsed AdViewGlobal autosurf Ponzi scheme that now has been linked to the collapsed AdSurfDaily Ponzi scheme, ProfitClicking is calling itself a “private association.”
Similar to the collapsed Zeek scheme, ProfitClicking says it has a “Legal Compliance Department.”
Like many online fraud schemes these days, ProfitClicking appears to have a plan to scam the public through social-networking sites such as Google +, Twitter and Facebook. And Profit Clicking says it is using at least two of the same offshore payment processors Zeek chose: Payza and SolidTrustPay.
Mann was a former pitchman for the ASD Ponzi scheme. Zeek and JSS/JBP are known to have members in common.
One graphic on the current landing page for ProfitClicking features a cartoon image of a bird. The bizarre headline is “Polly Wants A Profit.”
Naturally, there’s also a picture of a waterfront mansion.
