FTC Files Charges Against Independent Sales Organization and Sales Agents

Defendants Laundered Transactions for ‘Money Now Funding’ Scheme

The Federal Trade Commission has charged 12 defendants with laundering millions of dollars in credit card charges through fraudulent merchant accounts. According to the complaint filed by the FTC, the defendants arranged for a deceptive operation known as Money Now Funding (MNF) to obtain and maintain merchant accounts that allowed it to process almost $6 million through the credit card networks.

In September 2013, the FTC charged MNF with running a deceptive business opportunity scheme that promised consumers they would make thousands of dollars helping small businesses get loans. The court in the MNF matter determined that MNF’s promises were false.

Today’s case alleges that the defendants – an Independent Sales Organization (ISO), sales agents, and their principals – provided the MNF scheme access to the credit card networks  by submitting and approving fraudulent applications in the names of more than 40 fictitious MNF companies. According to the FTC’s complaint, the defendants did so despite obvious signs that the companies were likely fictitious and being used to conceal the true identity of the underlying merchant. By processing the fraudulent MNF scheme’s transactions through merchant accounts opened in the names of fictitious companies, the ISO defendants allegedly also evaded the anti-fraud monitoring efforts of the credit card networks.

In the case announced today, the defendants are charged with violating the FTC Act and the FTC’s Telemarketing Sales Rule.

The ISO defendants are Electronic Payment Systems LLC, Electronic Payment Transfer LLC, John Dorsey, Thomas McCann and Michael Peterson. The sales agent defendants are Electronic Payment Solutions of America Inc., Electronic Payment Services Inc., KMA Merchant Services LLC, Dynasty Merchants LLC, Jay Wigdore, Michael Abdelmesseh, also known as Michael Stewart, and Nikolas Mihilli.

The Commission vote authorizing the staff to file the complaint was 2-0. It was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona.

NOTE: The Commission files a complaint when it has “reason to believe” that the law has been or is being violated and it appears to the Commission that a proceeding is in the public interest. The case will be decided by the court.

FTC Charges Online Marketing Scheme with Deceiving Shoppers

One-time “trial” offer for tooth whitener led to recurring $200 monthly charges

The Federal Trade Commission has charged an online marketing operation with deceptively luring people into an expensive negative option scam using an initial low-cost ($1.03, plus shipping and handling) “trial” offer for tooth whiteners and other products.

A federal court temporarily halted the operation and froze its assets at the request of the FTC, which seeks to end the practices.

According to the FTC, the defendants used a network of 78 companies, at least 87 websites, and dozens of bank accounts to hide their ownership and launder the profits from the scheme. They also drove people to their websites via affiliate networks that generate web traffic with blog posts, banner ads and surveys. For example, some consumers got emails inviting them to fill out surveys falsely claiming to be for well-known merchants such as Kohl’s and Amazon, and were directed to the defendants’ websites to claim a “reward” for completing the survey.

The FTC alleges that, using deceptive claims, hidden fine-print disclosures and confusing terms, the defendants tricked consumers into providing their billing information, and then started charging them about $100 a month unless consumers canceled within 8 days. They also used an order confirmation page to trick consumers into signing up for a second monthly subscription, which cost an additional $100, for an identical product. Because of this double-deception, the defendants charged consumers, who reasonably believed they had agreed to a single shipment for $1.03 plus shipping costs, about $200 a month until they canceled both unauthorized subscriptions.

The defendants are charged with violating the FTC Act and the Restore Online Shoppers’ Confidence Act.

The defendants are Blair McNea, Danielle Foss, Jennifer Johnson, Boulder Creek Internet Solutions Inc., Walnut Street Marketing Inc., and these LLCs: Anasazi Management Partners, RevMountain, Wave Rock, Juniper Solutions, Jasper Woods, Wheeler Peak Marketing, ROIRunner, Cherry Blitz, Flat Iron Avenue, Absolutely Working, Three Lakes, Bridge Ford, How and Why, Spruce River, TrimXT, Elation White, IvoryPro, Doing What’s Possible, RevGuard, RevLive!, Blue Rocket Brands, Convertis, Convertis Marketing, Turtle Mountains, Boulder Black Diamond, Mint House, Thunder Avenue, University & Folsom, Snow Sale, Brand Force, Wild Farms, Salamonie River, Indigo Systems, Night Watch Group, Newport Crossing, Greenville Creek, Brookville Lane, Honey Lake, Condor Canyon, Brass Triangle, Solid Ice, Sandstone Beach, Desert Gecko, Blizzardwhite, Action Pro White, First Class Whitening, Spark Whitening, Titanwhite, Dental Pro At Home, Smile Pro Direct, Circle of Youth Skincare, DermaGlam, Sedona Beauty Secrets, Bella at Home, SkinnyIQ, Body Tropical, and RoadRunner B2C LLC, also doing business as RevGo.

The Commission vote authorizing the staff to file the complaint was 2-0. The U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada entered a temporary restraining order against the defendants on July 25, 2017.

NOTE: The Commission files a complaint when it has “reason to believe” that the law has been or is being violated and it appears to the Commission that a proceeding is in the public interest. The case will be decided by the court.

International Cyber Crime Takedown Targets “Carding”

Two dozen people around the world were arrested today as part of the largest coordinated international law enforcement action in history directed at “carding” crimes—offenses in which the Internet is used to traffic in and exploit the stolen credit card, bank account, and other personal identification information of victims.

The takedown was the result of a two-year undercover operation led by the FBI that revealed a network of cyber criminals engaged in activities such as buying and selling stolen identities, exploiting credit cards, and using counterfeit documents and sophisticated hacking tools.

In the course of the undercover operation, the FBI contacted multiple affected institutions and/or individuals to advise them of discovered breaches in order to enable them to take appropriate responsive and protective measures. In so doing, the FBI has prevented estimated potential economic losses of more than $205 million, notified credit card providers of over 411,000 compromised credit and debit cards, and notified 47 companies, government entities, and educational institutions of the breach of their networks.

Ex-online Pharmacy Titan Arrested in U.S.

By: Gabrielle Giroday
Winnipeg Free Press

It’s a staggering tale that took a young man from a high-flying Internet entrepreneur in Minnedosa to a jail cell in Miami in a decade.

The epic rise of 38-year-old Andrew Strempler as an online pharmacy magnate crashed after his arrest this past Wednesday at the Miami International Airport, as he made his way to Canada from South America.

Strempler — once profiled by the New York Times as a “rich man” who went out of his way not to disguise his wealth — had attracted notice as one of Manitoba’s most flamboyant young businessmen as he built the online pharmacy business RxNorth.com from a century-old building in downtown Minnedosa.

That success meant the purchase of a Wellington Crescent mansion that once belonged to Leonard Asper and a collection of flashy cars that included two Dodge Vipers and a yellow Lamborghini.

Strempler was charged Wednesday with one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, as well as two counts of mail fraud.

As of Friday, he was at a federal detention centre in Miami.

Prisoners in the jail must wake up at 6 a.m. on weekdays and submit to cell inspections.

Jay Boschman, a Brandon-based pharmacist who almost went into business with Strempler, said he was “not surprised at all” to hear about what happened.

The pair met in the 1990s at a pharmacy in Rossburn. Strempler struck Boschman as a “sharp person,” and the pair shared Christian beliefs as Strempler developed his business.

“He was young, and he was energetic, and I thought he was a sharp, sharp pharmacist,” said Boschman.

But the two drifted apart and haven’t spoken in more than a decade.

“As he became richer and richer, he seemed to disregard maybe some of the laws of the land,” said Boschman.

Court documents filed in Miami show authorities are seeking the forfeiture of US$95 million it’s alleged Strempler received through crime.

The charges against Strempler date from a period between January 2005 to June 2006.

Documents filed in a U.S. District Court in Florida allege Strempler — as founder and owner of Mediplan Health Consulting, which also operated under the name RxNorth.com — had received a letter in 2001 saying his drug sales south of the border would be illegal if the products weren’t approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The Free Press chronicled some of the further hurdles the business faced, after Strempler bought out his partners and sold it in 2006, the same year the FDA warned drugs purchased from the firm were unsafe.

By 2009, Strempler had struck his name from a provincial pharmacy registry and had to pay $7,500 to stay charges against him at a disciplinary hearing at the Manitoba Pharmaceutical Asssociation.

The court documents say Strempler and others used a facility named Personal Touch in Freeport, the Bahamas, “to dispense prescription drugs purchased from RxNorth,” from January 2005 to June 2006.

“Andrew J. Strempler and others caused prescription orders made through RxNorth to be filled at the facility in the Bahamas, with labels on the vials and drug cartons stating they had been filled by RxNorth in Canada,” said court documents.

Strempler was licensed as a pharmacist in Manitoba, said the documents, and Mediplan was also based in the province.

“It was the purpose of the conspiracy for the defendant and his co-conspirators to unlawfully enrich themselves by selling prescription drugs in the United States, falsely representing that RxNorth was selling safe prescription drugs in compliance with the rules of regulatory authorities in Canada, the United Kingdom and/or the United States, when in fact… (they) obtained the prescription drugs from various other countries without properly ensuring the safety or authenticity of the drugs,” said the documents.

U.S. marshals arrested Strempler at the Miami airport on a pending warrant, said Alicia Valle, special counsel to the U.S. attorney.

Strempler’s Miami-based lawyer did not respond to a message left with her office Friday.

RCMP D Division spokesman Cpl. Miles Hiebert said there were no outstanding warrants for Strempler’s arrest in Canada and he is not facing criminal charges here.

N.J. AG sues Industry Model, Talent Studies LLC and Interface 1 LLC for Fraud


NEWARK, N.J. (Legal Newsline) – New Jersey Attorney General Paula Dow and the State Division of Consumer Affairs announced a lawsuit Tuesday against two modeling companies and their owner for alleged deceptive business practices.

Industry Model and Talent Studies LLC, and Interface 1 LLC, and owner Roman Vintfield allegedly deceived consumers by having them enter into written agreements to pay for services that would purportedly assist the consumers’ children in obtaining modeling and acting careers. There have been more than 200 complaints submitted to the division against IMTS, formerly located in Edgewater, N.J., and Interface 1, located in East Brunswick, N.J.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants violated the Consumer Fraud Act through unconscionable commercial practices, through making false promises and/or knowing omissions of fact and/or misrepresentations, as well as failing to provide copies of sales contracts to consumers.

“We allege that consumers were led to believe they would receive personalized assistance to market their children to prospective modeling or acting employers, but they ultimately ended up paying for expensive photo shoots and nothing more,” Dow said.

The state is seeking restitution for consumers of approximately $170,000, as well as civil penalties against the defendants and reimbursement of attorneys’ fees and costs.

Dow alleges that the defendants approached parents with children at theme parks and malls, commented on how attractive the children looked and obtained contact information from the parents.

Dow further alleges that the defendants then induced the parents to come to their offices for a free evaluation, at which time the defendants pressured the parents to sign contracts that allegedly included marketing services, but actually only provided for a photo shoot.

The complaint further alleges that the contracts the defendants required consumers to sign contained clauses preventing cancellations or refunds for scheduled photo shoots, and also waived the consumers’ right to a jury trial and to assert any set-off, defense or counterclaim in any action.

An initial violation of the Consumer Fraud Act may result in a civil penalty of up to $10,000, with each subsequent violation subject to a civil penalty of up to $20,000.


Word or warning, I do ramble. I’m also a noob here on Complaints Board. So.. In I Come With a Bang.

I’ve been dealing with spammers for years. I know I playing “Don Quixote” and tilting at windmills now, but I still do it for fun. (spammers forced me to learn “net things” like WHOIS, DNS, traceroute, IP tracking and routing, SWIPed IPs, and lots more).
I’m a member of CAUCE (use your G00gleFu <g>)and other organizations. I’ve even helped draft laws and regulations in WA…, and I’ve had many retaliations from spammers, :ie mailbombs forged subscribes pingfloods…
Some of the virttual “trophy heads on the wall” (always shared) are Spamford Wallace, Mike Kieger, “AlRal” Ralsky, and about 400 more (not counting “419” email addresses by the thousands)
So much for my creds and brags…
Most spam is scams. (and spam itself is 95+% of all email now)

Most (at least from what I see on my 10+ email accounts and the 5+ accounts I manage for family and friends) are “419s”/Nigerian scams/Dying Widow Will/”You Have Won”/”Need Agent In Your Country” and all those “advanced fee frauds” mainly).

Next in line are the Canadian Pharmacy/PenisPillz/Cheap Software type (Bing/Goog/etc search “PARTNERKA””, this and the “Russian spam Gangs” are the main source of these. Fake pills, no merchandise, ID theft, bank fraud, phishing .. real bad crap!

Then comes the “Make Money At Home”/”Instant Money Off Internet Marketing”/”Affiliate” spam. There are a few of these that are real businesses but even those have to bend laws or good business practices. Most of those are pyramid scams. Two good tip-offs”: the word “Affiliate” and the “3 foot Website” (scroll down ‘forever’ or until your scrolling finger gets numb). The “Affiliate” is either a victim or a willing participant in the scam/top levels of the pyramid.
Many of them even give you details on *how to spam*

Next in line is spam for some business that fell for a spammet’s tricks: either they paid for having it done and spammy provided “a list of prole who have “opted-in” to receive “targeted” (false!) emails, or sold them athe same list and some “ratware” to do the spamming themselves. it’s a n00bie problem. They had no idea what they got themselves into.. see “Aurora Nissan” (http://preview.tinyurl.com/Aurora-Nissan-spam) PS.. I was packing a sign there.

Last comes what’s called “Mainsleaze” spam, a reasonably-known company like Kraft’s “Gevailia” division (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gevalia) that wantonly and knowing spams.

spam isn’t “email I don’t want”. That’s part of it, but the best short description is “Consent”. If you gave your consent, it ain’t spam. However, if they sold/gave your email address away to some other entity who then sends you email.

Also, the spam concept isn’t just email.
“Street Spam” (those who shove signstakes in all over the place, “handbills” and signs on utility poles, buildings, et al.
“Comment/Blog/Forum spam” ( ads posted in places like this one)
“Spim” (done via texting, instant messaging, chat, or digital pager bombing: this is actually what it’s called )
(and more)

What this long (and rambling) post is for:

1) passing on spam tips
2) exposing scammers’ URLs (web addresses)
3) documenting the “Mainsleaze” companies so that you can (if desired) boycott them (and preferably why)
4) scams in general that you find on the Internet.
5) how to tune up your ‘bullshit detector” for scams.

It would be nice if CB’s honchos would would create some new topic(s) on this line.

I’ll even throw you a couple of my valid (and valid) email addresses.
usenetharvested (at) aol (dot) com.ode Remove and replace as needed to make it valid.(this is called “mungeing”)
ube_never@yahoo.com (plain and real, I can deal with spam resulting from email harvesting )

H A N D.
I’ll S T F U now…

Protect Yourself on Facebook

Posted: 01/16/2011 04:09:45 AM PST

In her column (“Raising the bar on comments,” Jan. 9), Reporter Managing Editor Robin Miller announced the termination of Topix and the switch to Facebook. It does not impact me, since I had not contributed to Topix and have no intention of signing up for Facebook.
Many acquaintances and family members have asked me to be their friends on Facebook or to join other social networks. My answer, in part, is always the same: “Thanks, but no thanks.”

Much of the news related to these sites, and particularly Facebook recently, reveals that they are a target area for scammers, predators and other dishonest types who troll the Internet looking for victims.

An article in the Sacramento Bee (“Facebook ‘friends’ — or cyber crooks?” Dec. 30), notes that the cyber criminals on Facebook today come cloaked as real friends sending messages asking you to wire them money in a foreign country or posting a note on your wall with a funny video that’s really a dangerous link. They lure victims many ways, such as offering fake gift cards or a chance to win gadgets simply by clicking on a link or that oh-so-common Facebook “like” button.

As a warning to young and old alike, who may be gullible or are not aware of the dangers, here are some recommendations from Kim Komando, radio talk show host and author about all things computer, for what you should never say on Facebook:

* Date of birth or full name. With that information, it is possible to reconstruct your Social Securitynumber. If you post your birth date, leave off the year.
* Your mother’s maiden name. Many bank security systems use that as a “secret” answer. It’s availability can create a criminal chain reaction.

* Your home address — especially if you are going to tell people that you are going on vacation or a trip. Talk about it after you get back — or your house may be empty when you return.

* Pictures of your children. Identity thieves target children all the time. If you do post their pictures, don’t tag the photo with their full name(s). Without the name, identification crooks have a harder time.

* Anything showing misbehavior. Employers have withdrawn job offers or fired employees based upon inappropriate behavior found online. Don’t post text or photos of dangerous activities. Insurance companies have been known to troll Facebook looking for a reason to raise your premiums. The IRS can be on the lookout for tax cheats.

Anything that is digital and on your computer or handheld could eventually end up out in cyberspace being viewed by people who do not have your best interests at heart. What you put online is there forever, including Facebook posts. Even if you delete it, it can still show up somewhere else online.

Know who you are communicating with and be extremely careful about what you are talking about. Forewarned is forearmed.

We already have free, or relatively free, sources of communication: e-mail, snail mail, telephone and, most gratifying of all — face-to-face conversation. At my age, those are all that I have the time and inclination to handle.

Bank Insiders Charged in ZeuS Cybercrime Smackdown

November 8, The Register – (International)

Six corrupt bank insiders turned ZeuS money mule suspects have been arrested in Moldova. All half dozen of the suspects worked in local banks in the east European country.

Investigators believe the suspects specialized in laundering Western Union and MoneyGram payments received from co-conspirators in Western nations that can ultimately be traced back to compromised corporate and personal bank accounts. The arrests in Moldova follow charges against alleged members of a massive cybercrime ring estimated to have raked in up to $70 million by using the ZeuS banking Trojan to steal online banking log-in credentials and loot accounts.

Further arrests may follow in Moldova and elsewhere, a Washington Post staffer turned security blogger reports.

US Loan Auditors, LLC – www.usloanauditors.com

SACRAMENTO — Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. today filed a $60 million lawsuit against a pair of Sacramento companies that lured desperate homeowners with a deceptive marketing scheme that promised to obtain mortgage modifications through the use of computer-generated “forensic loan audits.”

“These defendants dangled the term ‘forensic loan audit’ as a sure-fire remedy for the mortgage problems of homeowners in distress,” Brown said. “In fact, it was no remedy at all, and hundreds of desperate California homeowners took the bait and lost their money — and sometimes their homes.”

Brown filed the $60 million lawsuit against US Loan Auditors, My US legal services, and five individuals, including two attorneys, who operate a fraudulent mortgage audit scheme that preys on desperate homeowners anxious to save their homes. The suit demands civil penalties, restitution for victims, and permanent injunctions to keep the companies and other defendants from fraudulently marketing forensic loan audits and legal services of little value.

The companies, based in Rancho Cordova, work together to market and sell “forensic loan audits” to homeowners, who pay thousands of dollars in up-front fees for a dubious computer-generated review of their mortgages. The audits purport to show violations of law by lenders, which sales agents cite to convince homeowners they have a strong legal case. Sales agents use these findings to encourage homeowners to stop making their mortgage payments and instead pay additional fees to bring “predatory lending” lawsuits against their lenders.

Both companies deceive homeowners by assuring them that filing these lawsuits will give them “legal leverage” to obtain a loan modification and prevent lenders from foreclosing or collecting monthly mortgage payments. Homeowners who filed these lawsuits have lost thousands of dollars and placed themselves in greater danger of losing their homes.

My US Legal Services bilks clients for months, filing cookie-cutter complaints with little or no merit, billing unjustified monthly fees, and then dodging clients’ phone calls or stringing them along with false assurances that a settlement is in progress.

Hundreds of California homeowners, many of them facing possible loss of their homes, have been duped into paying thousands of dollars to the two companies — one homeowner paid more than $55,000 — but received little or no relief.

Meanwhile, the litigation mill run by My US Legal Services has littered courts with hundreds of lawsuits that have scant chance of success. Two federal judges have expressed concern about the legitimacy of these lawsuits and have several times sanctioned attorneys involved.

In addition to the companies, Brown is suing the three owners: attorney and real estate broker James Sandison, Jeffrey Pulvino, and Shane Barker, as well as two California attorneys, Sharon L. Lapin and Jonathan G. Stein.

The State Bar filed disciplinary charges yesterday against Sandison for alleged misappropriation of clients’ funds and aiding the unauthorized practice of law.

The Attorney General’s investigation, assisted by the State Bar and the Department of Real Estate, located victims throughout California cities hit hard by the foreclosure crisis: Corning, Fresno, Hayward, Irvine, Manteca, Richmond, Sacramento, Salinas, Sanger, Santa Ana, Stockton, Tracy, Vacaville and West Sacramento.

In February, Brown, along with the Bar and the Department of Real Estate, issued an alert ( News & Alerts – California Dept. of Justice – Office of the Attorney General) warning consumers to be wary of forensic loan audits that require homeowners to pay up-front fees. There is no evidence or statistical data to support claims that forensic loan audits of a lenders’ mortgage practices – even if performed by a licensed mortgage professional or a lawyer — help homeowners obtain loan modifications or any other foreclosure relief.

Brown has led the fight against fraudulent mortgage rescue and loan modification companies. He has obtained court orders to shut down several companies and has brought criminal charges against deceptive loan modification consultants. For more information on Brown’s actions against loan-modification fraud, see: State of California – Department of Justice – Stop Loan Modification Fraud.

If you are a homeowner who has been scammed, you can file a complaint online with the Attorney General’s office at: Consumer Alerts, Information & Complaints – California Dept. of Justice – Office of the Attorney General. You can learn more about avoiding scams and obtain a complaint form by visiting the Department of Real Estate’s website at: Department of Real Estate Home Page.

If you have a complaint against Sandison, Lapin, Stein or any other lawyer involved in a loan modification or foreclosure relief service, contact the State Bar Complaint Hotline at 1-800-843-9053. Complaint forms and an explanation of the attorney discipline system are available online at: The State Bar of California.

Attached are a copy of the complaint and a sample of the fraudulent advertising mailers sent by the companies.
