    Finally a bit of life. Sing hallelujah! Seems you caused quite a stir P. can't believe they wiped the thread.
    The drones will consider that a victory, and confirmation of BB's validity! Anyway, I still think MasterCard may be the quickest most effective route.

    re: Banners Broker HYIP ponzi scam

    I believe there's a solicitor's letter from Canada at my old address that I've got to go and collect on Saturday.

    Any advice if it is what I believe it is?

    *Worried*

    A solicitors' letter is just that, a letter.

    IANAL, nor do I play one in a TV series, however, a solicitors' letter, no matter how threatening it may appear can only threaten to take court action, it is NOT legally binding in itself.

    IOW, the solicitor is doing what his/her client is asking, nothing more. He/she cannot impose penalties.

    First we have questions over jurisdiction i.e. if you're in the U.S.A. and the client is in Canada.

    Secondly, no HYIP ponzi promoter such as those behind Banners Broker is going to allow him or herself to get within a bulls' roar of a courtroom which would be necessary should the complaint be allowed to get that far.

    How likely is it a HYIP promoter could survive explaining how his/her plan works to the satisfaction of a court ??

    IOW, it ain't gonna happen.

    I'll carry on causing a stir, and making a racket till this Ponzi is closed down.

    Letter that arrived was only my prepaid Mastercard - BB have closed my account for being 'naughty'.

    I think I'll be drafting a letter tomorrow which will be sent to them. If only I didn't believe everything friends say.

    I'm in the UK.

    I am not a lawyer either; I have been reading up on defamation laws though- criminal law is more my thing-- seeing as though I want to be a bobby!

    Haha! Thanks for the welcome; I'll post some more of my research onto this thread tomorrow. However it seems as though that other forum there's a user called moneymaker (or something) they've been using most of my information gathered!

    re: Banners Broker HYIP ponzi scam

    Found this on another site:

    Sorry I did not acknowledge your post Chelsea, with regard to your suggesting naming the City gent, that would be a little unfair of me to him, but let me give you a clue he is officially regarded as and rated the No. 3 Forex trader in the world, that might help you, he handles extremely wealthy clients who have Swiss bank accounts also handling all their investment activities, at the time of the conversation he and I were attending a gathering to meet one of the executive’s who incidentally make themselves very accessible by travelling around the globe shaking hands and enjoying the opportunity of meeting 1000′s of excited happy members, they must get a great buzz doing that, but they would not if people were unhappy.

    So if you join BB you are rubbing shoulders with all types, the City gent was introduced to the business by one of the founders of the bank of Portugal who advised him to keep an eye on it, which he did for five months before going to Canada to examine the business, why did he do that, to check it’s suitability for introducing his clients, just to underline the integrity of the owner and executive, our City friend wanted to purchase $500,000 and $1,000,000 amounts on behalf of his client’s into the business, incidentally he had just purchased 175,000.00 Euro’s worth of business with BB, “just for starters” he said to me, the owner and executive turned down that opportunity saying that their desire was not to make the extremely wealthy even wealthier but to bring to ordinary folk the ability to change their lives, I think that statement answers most of the criticism leveled at the executives integrity by others. Would they not have grabbed all that money if it was a Ponzi, they have not collected the admin fee’s regularly only spasmodically, can you see any cash strapped company doing that, of course not they grab every dime they can usually before you have even received any service at all from them.
    So there you are Chelsea, I speak as I find obviously with a mind for other’s opinions, I can only suggest you try BB because if you don’t, if it’s true, look what you are missing.


    Think I'm going to be sick...

    If anything Poyol, I think its time you sent them a solicitor's letter. They have money belonged to you. They have changed the rules all the way along. Maybe this is the way to get the authorities moving on this one?

    The authorities look at the number of complaints, dollar loss and yes, the amount of internet attention a scam is getting. The more internet complaints the better chance an enforcement agency will act. The Texas Attorney General's office investigator was quite delighted when she realized who she was talking on the phone to. She had in fact been reading me!

    We don't have attorney generals in the UK ... Or DAs - I don't really know the equivalent- or know who to speak to who'd understand the crime.

    The local police e-crime division didn't understand it at all. I had to point them to Wikipedia article on Ponzi schemes as they'd never heard of the term before.

    Well, reporting Banners Broker in general I've reported to: ActionFraud; SOCA; FSA and the FBI will be reporting to Canadian authorities tomorrow.

    I just think it'll collapse on its own before the authorites react.

    I am not personally aware of any investigations and if I was I could not discuss it online. But, as Poyol pointed out, many of these deals collapse very quickly on their own before the authorities can have time to act. And, sadly the authorities are understaffed and underfunded and many scams will fly under the radar. That is why sites like this are so wonderful. At least folks can get some information with which to make an informed decision.

    re: Banners Broker HYIP ponzi scam

    I know people that are in it for over a year. If you look at some of the threads they date back to Oct 2010. If you look at the moneymakergroup thread you will see there posts dating back to then.
    I am relatively new to this strange world so have alot to learn but how long was something like zeek going before it went wallop?

    I remember reading that Zeek started in 1997 and was shut down in 2012.

    Not all schemes last the same amount of time; I'm not going to stop chasing them.
