    I don't see anything at that link, SBM. I think that you need to place links to the actual threads, not to a search result.

    A rather dubious distinction, however!
    It seems like in this "industry" common sense is not all that common!

    Re: Frank Calabro Jr



    When was the last time I "seen" someone take a $18 dollar purchase and turn it into over 76 grand in cash?

    Err, how about - NEVER ??

    Unless that "$10 purchase" was for a lottery ticket, of course.


    What I have seen is large numbers of thieves, robbers, cheats, liars, frauds and pimps pretend they have taken an $18 dollar purchase and turned it into over 76 grand in cash by fudging the figures and producing doctored income statements

    his first problem is him thinking someone-anyone would think he walks on water. delusions are strong in this one.

    Re: Frank Calabro Jr

    While it's convenient to call people haters and imply they're jealous of your success, it's not the same as producing evidence that your business ventures have produced lasting success for others. I have no trouble believing some people make very large commissions promoting Ponzi/Pyramid/Chain Letter schemes, MOST DON'T. Additionally, in virtually every Ponzi/Pyramid there are "net winners" that end up taking out more than they put in. Some people don't care as long as they get paid, can't do much about that.

    This begs the question for the person on the fence, is there a way to determine if something is a scam before sinking money in? Do they just have to wait until the feds move in and hear things like they don't understand the model? Maybe some other excuse, we were hacked, admin ran off with the money, evil garden gnomes.

    In my opinion people that want to earn referral commissions holding themselves out as "internet entrepreneurs" should at least follow some variation of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prudent_man_rule .

    The prudent man rule directs trustees "to observe how men of prudence, discretion and intelligence manage their own affairs, not in regard to speculation, but in regard to the permanent disposition of their funds, considering the probable income, as well as the probable safety of the capital to be invested."

    A person presenting an "opportunity" and holding themselves out as some sort of "expert" should at the very least help prospects steer clear of the very basic threats in the scam kingdom. If ANY combination of these things are present RUN with your wallet clutched tightly unless you have a thing for funding the lifestyle of others.

    ================================================== ====================

    In Investing with an Eye on Fraud Prevention there are a few links I often refer back to in writing about scams and wanted a useful place to dump them. Additionally there are things I read of interest to me on investing in general. For the purposes of this thread I will post them with an eye on keeping money safe from predators. The caveat being, I am not an investment professional, not an accountant, not an attorney, not a broker, insurance agent, or super hero and am not giving advice. That said, considering some of the garbage I see passed off one could do worse...

    Some links to agencies that provide a wealth of information on avoiding scams and due diligence. There are probably 1000s of scams written about on this website and I doubt any did not show at least some red flags listed below well before they imploded. Many possess all the warnings and people still want to argue that they somehow have found a program that really works. Can't save them all.



    How to Recognized an HYIP/PONZI Scam

    The promise of high daily, weekly or monthly returns.
    An offer from the company to pay “referral fees” to investors for bringing in additional investors.
    The use of social media to spread the word and praise the program.
    The promoter provides very few details about who runs the company and how profits are generated.
    The promoter may require that the investor open an e-currency account to invest. E-currency accounts are not licensed as a money transmitter.

    What are some Ponzi scheme "red flags"?

    Many Ponzi schemes share common characteristics. Look for these warning signs:

    High investment returns with little or no risk. Every investment carries some degree of risk, and investments yielding higher returns typically involve more risk. Be highly suspicious of any "guaranteed" investment opportunity.

    Overly consistent returns. Investment values tend to go up and down over time, especially those offering potentially high returns. Be suspect of an investment that continues to generate regular, positive returns regardless of overall market conditions.

    Unregistered investments. Ponzi schemes typically involve investments that have not been registered with the SEC or with state regulators. Registration is important because it provides investors with access to key information about the company's management, products, services, and finances.

    Unlicensed sellers. Federal and state securities laws require investment professionals and their firms to be licensed or registered. Most Ponzi schemes involve unlicensed individuals or unregistered firms.

    Secretive and/or complex strategies. Avoiding investments you do not understand, or for which you cannot get complete information, is a good rule of thumb.

    Issues with paperwork. Do not accept excuses regarding why you cannot review information about an investment in writing. Also, account statement errors and inconsistencies may be signs that funds are not being invested as promised.

    Difficulty receiving payments. Be suspicious if you do not receive a payment or have difficulty cashing out your investment. Keep in mind that Ponzi scheme promoters routinely encourage participants to "roll over" investments and sometimes promise returns offering even higher returns on the amount rolled over.

    If you are aware of an investment opportunity that might be a Ponzi scheme, contact the SEC by phone at (800) 732-0330 or submit a tip online at sec.gov/complaint/tipscomplaint.shtml.

    Re: Frank Calabro Jr

    A case study:

    Who didn't see Zeek Rewards as a scam, the people promoting it for a commission and those being paid with money from later investors. (Calabro Jr Frank E. http://www.zeekrewardsreceivership.c...%203.25.14.pdf)

    Who did see Zeek rewards as a scam, right away...

    Zeek Rewards Review: SPAM, Penny Auctions & MLM

    Zeek Rewards !! How to get to $3K a month, starting as a free member !


    These are two opportunities that Frank is currently promoting, as mentioned above he is one of the top promoters in http://www.realscam.com/f9/my-advert...am-ponzi-3439/ which is very clearly a Ponzi/Pyramid Scam. They claim to be sharing revenue, just like Zeek. There has to be a plausible story or it would suck as a scam. Just a matter of time before MAP implodes, not when not if. Four Corners a Pyramid selling scam, having a few E-Books doesn't change the laws on this sort of structure.

    MyAdvertisingPays Review: $49.99 Ponzi investment scheme

    Four Corners Alliance Group Compensation Plan v2.0

    The above doesn't mean the law will move in, most of these programs fade away leaving the masses with losses. Then low and behold, the next big thing will pop up as if by magic a real business for the little guy.

    Even if you do have a thing for funding the lifestyle of others, please consider donating to your local orphanage or some other similar charity you know first hand - instead of funding the lives of Mr. Calabro and alike.

    .
    Should this thread have been titled: "Frank Calabro Jr - How low can he go?" like the Ken Russo thread?

    Look what I found sifting through the Addicted to - My Advertising Pays Facebook Group:

    How low can you go? That's the thing about rock bottom - it can get lower and lower as you go down. Linking up to the post in another thread with the video of Mr. Calabro: http://www.realscam.com/f9/my-advert...html#post89706

    Bet Calabro JR is looking pretty red faced now. After scamming thousands into MAP and having them close all the US accounts, he took all the sheep and anything they had left in to traffic monsoon, only to have paypal freeze the accounts a few months later. So that's Zeek rewards, Banners Brokers, MAP and now Traffic Moonsoon. Not a good track record. Don't worry though. What ever he promotes next will be the next google or facebook. Im sure of it.

    Wow. I dig the fact that he knows what a 36 pack of Top Ramen costs at Sam's Club. Clearly he's "kickin' ass"!
    I tell you emphatically that this is the END of those evil doers, we must Apprehend and prosecute them accordingly.
