Were You Scammed by Steven Bransfield - File Claim Now
The internet has many legitimate money making opportunities, such as the top-notch affiliate marketing training here at Wealthy Affiliate, and then there are also many scammers trying to rip you off. Were you ever scammed by Steven Bransfield? He was the owner of two companies; Rookie Profit System and We Run Ads, both are now shutdown.
THE WHEELS OF JUSTICE KEEP TURNING
There is one thing that many of us here at Wealthy Affiliate have had the displeasure to experience and that is being scammed in some sort of MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) pyramid scheme. If you now investigate and expose online scams like I do on one of my websites, you probably have heard of MOBE and how the FTC shut them down.
I have written about the entire FTC case against MOBE and its three defendants Matt Lloyd, Russell W. Whitney, Jr. (Deceased), and Susan Zanghi on my website and I wrote about an update on the lawsuit in a WA Blog on April 15, 2019. A settlement was reached with Susan Zanghi. Settlements from both Russell W. Whitney's estate and Matt Lloyd are ongoing.
BUT THERE'S MORE
It seems that the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) are also going after some of the big money makers in MOBE as well, or at least one of them. There were a few "Big Fish" that made millions from MOBE such as Shaqir Hussyin, John Chow and Steven Bransfield. It was just reported that on August 26, 2019, Steven filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The above is an image from an Update Report document by the Court Appointed Receiver in the FTC vs. MOBE case. You can view that online document here. Chapter 11 bankruptcy is usually filed when the debtor, in this case Steven Bransfield, intends to restructure his financial affairs. When MOBE got shut down a lot of their affiliates lost big time.
WERE YOU SCAMMED BY STEVEN?
I have seen blog posts online from people claiming to have been scammed by Steven Bransfield with one of his two companies mentioned above, that were nothing more than funnels into the MOBE 21-step training scam. If you believe that you have been scammed by him, NOW IS THE TIME to file your claim. You have until January 6, 2020.
In the online document, see above link or image below, the Court Appointed Receiver Mark J. Bernet indicates that if anyone believes they have a claim against Steven Bransfield, that they should file a Proof of Claim form with the Clerk of Bankruptcy Court. Mark J. Bernet goes on to give the address of the court, the Case Number, and a link to download the form.
The shutdown of MOBE, one of if not the biggest MLM scam, has effected the financial livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people, many who lost their lives savings with dreams of making money online in their own businesses. We here at Wealthy Affiliate know that this dream can be a reality, as long as you do it the honest and correct way without scamming.
It seems that the FTC is not just going after Lloyd, Whitney Jr, Zanghi, all the MOBE companies, and the payment processors still holding funds, but it seems like they will go after those big money makers now and Steven may be the first. As the document shows, Steven is claiming that the FTC says he is liable for about $9 Million Dollars. OUCH!!!
Steven's bankruptcy papers indicate that he has very little in tangible assets. DOUBLE OUCH!!! It's no wonder he is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. This news makes me wonder, will the FTC hold the other big MOBE money makers Shaqir Hussyin and John Chow liable for millions too? The settlement of the MOBE case vs the FTC is far from over.
What are your thoughts? Were you scammed by Steven Bransfield? Do you know someone who was? Leave your comments below. I was fortunate not to lose any more than $49.00 with MOBE. I quickly discovered it was a scam. But many were not so lucky and with the millions of dollars these crooks made, you know that hundreds of thousands lost a lot of money.
