    re: Is My Advertising Pays / The Advert Platform A Scam or Ponzi?

    It pisses me of so much, I can hardly find words to describe it. About 10 Month ago I learned that a friend of me joined in. I told him it sounds like a crap Idea from the beginning, but he wouldn't listen. Fair enough, I thought. As things go, he became so brainwashed and excited, he now drags more and more mutual friends into the scheme. One of them, a bit gullible, I hear has just split up with his wife after 19 years of Marriage. I can only assume it must be over this, because while he is a bit gullible, she is actually quite clever. So I can only assume she told him not to pour any more Money into this silly scheme, and he wouldn't listen, so brainswashed he is. So there you go, yes, it starts to destroy LIFES as People knew it. Worse yet to come, this particular circle of mutual friends we happen to have in common, this my friend and me, all live in a rather small community, and many of those People are not only poor and unemployed,but presently would put grandmother up of sale only to purchase credit-packs, but they also come from a Background that makes them prone to settle disputes by resorting to violence. The worrying part of the Story is what will happen when MAP goes Tits up - which it will eventually, without the shadow of a doubt. My friend who dragged them all in to start with will have no place to hide. Yes, it may well end in bloodshed and I am not exaggerating. I feel utterly helpless. You all know how it goes. When I try talk to them, they turn round and brand me a loser who doesnt understand the concept. Makes my blood boil. I have repoorted anonimously to Authorities but they do nothing. I cant report openly, because of the mentioned risk of violence in this small community possibly targeting myself.

    It's often said the fallout from HYIP ponzi / pyramid schemes extends a lot further than "just" the monetary losses suffered by participants.

    Here's an example from back in 2005 of how the People in Profit System aka P.IP.S scheme tore apart a small village in Ireland.

    Unfortunately the original links quoted in the story long ago went dead, but, you can get an idea of the devastation caused.

    Ketchikan in Alaska was another small town affected by the P.I.P.S. ponzi / pyramid scheme.

    Mind you, not all the news WRT P.I.P.S. was bad:

    One wonders if Septic Simon Stepsys and Mike Deese will ever be the subject of a book like the late Owen Platts' Just Numbers on a Screen which was released back in 2006

    It is ROLClub and it still is operating, but the thread has been dead now for almost 3 years. Yes they did raise money for one of the members of ROLClub and a victim of PIPS to attend the trial. They also put together a fund to hire an attorney to try and get their money back, and I told them they were wasting their time. I don't know how much money they did raise, but my understanding is that not only did nothing happen, but a lot of the money raised went MIA. So the victims were victimized twice in the same scam.

    There was also a big PIPS-AU blog that had a lot of members posting and kept people abreast of what was happening. A few from there didn't appreciate me at all for some strange reason. They formed a special blog for members only so they could talk in private about me not knowing that I could read their private thread, and just couldn't post. When I kept posting about what they were saying about me in private, they went on a witch hunt to see who the traitor was! They were banning people that didn't even know me they were so paranoid. I think I drove them all crazy because they couldn't figure out how I knew what they were saying about me behind closed doors so to speak. Ah the good Ole Days!

    re: Is My Advertising Pays / The Advert Platform A Scam or Ponzi?

    The member who they sent to the trial used the moniker: theBat$, but I think his first name was Jason. The memories are flooding back. The group that I mentioned that formed the private blog was headed by the poster BrotherBear. I think the group had about 12-15 members and they only allowed those who were personally referred into this private club blog. That was why it was so funny to see them going nuts that I knew what they were saying about me. Back then I posted as LynnRE, and man did that create a hub-bub about if I was a woman or a man.

    What was really interesting is that up until now I could never tell this story. Actually BrotherBear challenged me to reveal who I really was, so I sent him a PM and told him if he wanted to know, he had to send me an Email. I told him he had to agree that whatever we said was totally private and could not be shared by anyone online or off. Shockingly he did send me the Email. So we began a conversation that ended up with him becoming a very dear friend. We talked on the phone at least 3-4 times a month, and when I formed Eagle he was one of our biggest supporters. The sad part was he could never let those in the group know about our relationship or they would have turned on him in a heartbeat. Which is why this story supports what Ghosbuster has alluded to in what could happen in his community. The only reason why I can tell this story now is that sadly BrotherBear died a few years back from a heart attack. So someone who professed to be my enemy became one of my best friends, and I really do miss him. He carved an Eagle into an ostrich egg and sent it to me. It is one of my prized Eagles in my collection.

    Time for an update on the latest trials and tribulations of our friend and former Haiku specialist
    aka Sandy Singh aka Sandeep Sheemar (as it turns out).

    Any road, far from creating short Japanese style poems aimed at promoting his self-proclaimed
    MAPS Diamond Rockstar status, Mr S is instead varying the content of his 'info-bursts' to take
    into account his current frustrations with MAP's sister company and 'Payment Gateway' VX...

    and

    and not forgetting the ol'...

    Screen Shot 2016-03-31 at 22.27.47.jpg

    Now, so enraged it appears is our sandy, that I think it's sent him a bit 'doolally'.

    I think he's had it with not being able to regularly withdraw his Rockstar wages, so much so that
    he's decided to give VX what for... by donning a Predator suit and letting them have it!


    RRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAARRRRRRRR!!!!!

    1424476_596359553860205_665327355357606945_n.jpg

    Will you blummen' well watch out with that saber-like arm thingy Sandy??? FFS!

    You've already had one of the Polystyrene tiles down from the ceiling from all that
    waving it about, you'll have somebody's eye out in a minute son!

    12042618_596359490526878_5605763659479853735_n.jpg

    Ladies and Gents, be afraid. Be VERY afraid. For when Sandy 'MAPS Rockstar Diamond' Singh
    gets a bee in his bonnet about not being able to buy more credit packs, he becomes.....

    Well done you anyway. You cerainly have left your mark on this character.

    And really, there has been very little information about the fact that the website is going offline from 5pm today until next Tuesday. Strange, that.

    I'd like to thank JennyP123 for drawing our attention to our old friend - and a real little gem if I may say so - SANDY SINGH!

    Maps 102 April 16.jpg

    Sadly, Sandy is none too happy with MAPs right now:-

    Maps 103 April 16.jpg

    But he can at least comfort himself with his big earnings:-

    Remember the Banners Broker "crack legal team" that turned out to be nothing more than a "legal team on crack" and never did a bloody thing the Banners Broker faithful threatened it would do ????

    Apparently My Advertising Pays have their own "crack legal team" pursuing "haterz"

    Actually I would not be surprised if he did get some of them to join MAP. It has happened in every Ponzi I can think of in the past 12 years. I would be surprised if Simon didn't beat him to them.
