Jobs at Just Think Media

Interesting info on Jesse Willms and Just Think Media…

Now that my Google Alerts’ portfolio has expanded, I’ve seen two jobs advertised at Just Think Media. Somewhat appropriately, they are for a Web Designer and a Legal Assistant!!!

See:

These are the screen-shots below for when the adverts are eventually pulled:

Legal assistant job in Sherwood Park - Simply Hired Canada

Find Jobs - Web Graphics Designer Jobs in Edmonton, Alberta - Just Think Media

Interestingly, and yet somehow not surprisingly, the second advert for a web designer (shown right), includes at the bottom, one of those scammy adverts for teeth whitener!!!

You can’t make it it up, can you?

Postscript

The teeth whitening ads take you to these websites below in turn.

  1. http://jennysteethwhitening.com/01/  This is a fake blog, a “flog” as they are called, which goes to two website links
  2. http://www.softteethclean.com/lp2/?aid=eads&sid=402055&hid=378851854#utm_source=eads&utm_medium=402055&utm_term=378851854&utm_content=Go+White   This finishes off with that Consett address again! – LB Envision Net Worldwide Ltd., DH8 0LH Blackhill.
  3. http://www.altawhite.com/   This last website here is notable for having an enormous list of medical exclusions and ingredients, yet mysteriously does not tell a potential purchaser who they are actually buying from….
A Flying Pig

A Flying Pig

It’s nice to see that a few million-dollar law suits haven’t kept the scammers down.  It gives us all something to talk about because I enjoy it so much…. NOT!

    Looks like Jesse Willms was featured on ABC news recently – they even went to visit him at Just Think Media but got kicked out by the receptionist.

    (Second half of video – after the travel stuff)

    Following Jim's links takes you to this page on ABC where they explain the mysteriously thinning woman that appears in Willms' adverts. What a Jesse!

    This is page three of the full story. Extra info is in the full article.

    Jesse Willms doesn't seem to know when to stop. Either that, or he's trying to maximise his income in preparation for the huge court cases being brought against him!

    These 3 complaints against his teeth-whitening efforts all came in during the past 24 hours!

    http://dazzle-smile.pissedconsumer.com/this-dazzlhttp://dazzle-white.pissedconsumer.com/dazzle-whihttp://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091

    As you can see, these are not inconsequential amounts of money being drawn against people's accounts. All done in the same manner as previously, where a consumer signs up for one thing, finds they are actually signed up for a whole host of other 'offers', and then can't cancel or get redress for a single one of them!!!

  4. Not Kevin says:

    Well it looks like for some of these scammers processing payments will at least temporarily be a t more difficult:

    "Visa Inc. has cut off 100 scammers who use bogus marketing techniques to dupe consumers in the past six months. Among the most common hustles: billing the credit cards of customers who thought they were getting free trial products like dietary supplements or teeth whiteners $79.95 per month or more, and then making them jump through hurdles to get the charges to stop.

    "Consumers are being fleeced," Sheedy said.

    Visa told The Associated Press that about 100 merchants had their payment processing terminated because of chronic complaints since early summer. The scam is now so common, the Visa is teaming up with the Federal Trade Commission and the Better Business Bureau to alert consumers."
    http://www.businessweek.com/ap/financialnews/D9CL

    Twenty-nine percent of online U.S. consumers victimized by deceptive marketing:
    http://multivu.prnewswire.com/mnr/visa/41736/

    I wonder if Just Think Media and their catalogue of 'products': http://www.webcops.net/just_think_media_spam_scam… is on the Visa list?

    Jesse Willms is on TV again – CBC this time. They also visited him at Just Think Media and at his home but could not find him either..

    Another Canadian TV station reporter is investigating Jesse Willms and Just Think Media in Sherwood Park – will try to find a link to a clip.

  7. Karen says:

    My son got scammed by Dazzle Smile. I got his money back but from the bank, not them, not after they "promised" to refund the money. I am writing to the consumer protection division in every state. We need to change the law so that you cannot advertise a "free trial" and hook people in. If you want to help, do a reply.

    Wonder what this is all about? [From a Google Alert]:

  9. Jesse Willms is the head of JustThink Media, an Internet scammer based in Sherwood Park, Alberta. His products use fraudulent endoresements of Oprah and Dr. Oz (currently suing Willms) and once you sign up, you'll never be able to cancel.

    http://www.cbc.ca/canada/edmonton/story/2009/12/1

    Willms is Canada's biggest Internet marketing douche bag, but his victims are worldwide. He should be water-boarded with acai berry.

  10. Hi guys, it looks like Jesse Willms/Just Think Media is behind a new business, a penny auction site, SwipeBids.com. See our investigation that we just posted here: http://www.pennyauctionwatch.com/2010/05/swipebid

  11. Strangely says:

    Jesse is still taking on web designer staff! Either,

    business is booming (see above for instance, or even better, review the discussion and screen-shot at the bottom of http://www.pennyauctionwatch.com/2010/05/swipebid… which is here: http://www.pennyauctionwatch.com/wp-content/uploa… This shows a Jesse Willms website with it's source code showing the rapid changes that ol' Jesse always has to make to cover his tracks….);

    or the staff get sacked when they dump ol' Jesse into the brown stuff when they leak compromising information out into his websites

    or the staff move on quick when they find out what a pile of poo they're working for…?

      Well done mate. That IP lookup is going into my shortcuts now. Very, very useful indeed as most others are a paid for thing with only a few returns on a reverse lookup.

      So it’s goodbye Just Think. Hello Terra Marketing – or should that read Terror Marketing?

      Just Think? Terror Marketing.

        I like the fact that these websites are part of the war against Terra Marketing:

        Given the way that 'customers' have their money whipped out of their bank by businesses that they knew nothing about, it's a bit rich – or at least ol' Jesse and Nolan are!

    Interesting that that ad mentions Terra Marketing Group

    This ad says: Location: Sherwood Park, Alberta

    Yet the website of terramarketinggroup.com/contact.php gives an address in Calgary:

    The domain terramarketinggroup was only registered on 01 April 2010 and the owner is hidden using domain privacy:

    Is Terra Marketing Group perhaps the new name for Just Think Media due to all the negative publicity on JustThink?

  14. Not Kevin says:

    The Calgary address seems to be home to several businesses, perhaps it is just a mailbox?

    Looks like there is someone in Florida who has a lot in common with Jesse Willms.

    Nicolas Molina – subject of lawsuits from the Illinois and Florida Attorney generals as well as Oprah:

    "Investigators also believe that Advanced Wellness company president Nicolas Molina and vice president Michael Trimarco became aware of the investigation and sold their business to Kelly O’Shea, a former Advanced Wellness employee. O’Shea created a new entity, Netalab Corp., and allegedly continued the same unfair and deceptive trade practices initially begun by Advanced Wellness. The complaints, in fact, have kept on coming". From:
    http://www.consumeraffairs.com/news04/2009/09/fl_

    http://assets.bizjournals.com/cms_media/southflor

    As well as (like Jesse Willms) being sued by Oprah for acai scams, Nicolas Molina (like Jesse) also has a website where he talks about himself in the third person about what a great 'entrepreneur' he is in ridiculously glowing terms:

    nicholasmolina.professionalwhois.com/

    Funny how "Professional Whois" only contains one profile (Nicolas Molina) and links to a whole bunch of companies which he has nothing to do with!

    It seems that Nicolas Molina is still in the Acai business despite all the lawsuits: his latest venture

    is TransactPlus, LLC

    927 Lincoln Road, Suite 200

    Miami Beach, FL 33139 which corporationwiki.com shows is "Incorporated by The Nicolas Molina 2006 Revocable Trust" no less! Take a look at the "client list" at transactplus.com/client-list.html and you will find

    BrightTeeth, ColoFlush, Dermacai, Pure Acai Berry Pro, Pure Rez V Pro, WhiteningNow and Google Profit House!

    transactplus.com is on the same server as safepaysecure.com which appears to be linked to XM Brands (also in Florida):

    Checked out ol' Jesse Willms's website recently? ('http://jessewillms.com)

    Well it's got another entry entitled "Google PPC Success"!

    In the sidebar it says "Top Three Topics"….

    …the only problem is that there are only three posts…and comments are disabled!! Ha Ha.

    On top of it all, while mentioning exactly where in Canada his little entrepreneurial cesspit is located, a whois of his website, is still protected by Monicker Privacy Services!!! See http://whois.domaintools.com/jessewillms.com

    Personally, I think Jesse has writers cramp from his high output in January, May and August this year…. Either that, or from fending off all the lawyers and credit card chappies…

    • Strangely says:

      For an insight into what ol' Jesse is up to with his 3 page self-indulgent piece of fiction called jessewillms.com, see what happened as the Google cache machine passed by:

      http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=ca

      Page 79 is called

      SwipeBids & World Vision: Helping the Less Fortunate

      It says that the "Article coming soon".

      But what appears to have happened is that Jesse had a change of mind and put out this page instead:

      Giving Back: Community Involvement

      Jesse Willms is a leader in the ever evolving Internet Marketing industry. As such he realizes that to be truly successful he not only has to create value for his company, he also has to help instill values in the community. That is why Jesse Willms has made a deep commitment to donating to a wealth of both local and global charities. “I sleep better at night, when I know I’ve helped others go to sleep with a full belly and the security that only a home can provide,” Willms said. That is just one of the reasons why Willms is known as a leader in the ongoing drive to make Internet Marketing a responsible member of the global community.

      It just makes me want to vomit.

      To continue onto his "About" page, this is what he says about himself;

      About Jesse

      Jesse Willms is the founder of Terra Marketing Group, a Canadian Internet marketing firm that specializes in online auction and information products. Jesse strives to make Terra Marketing Group a different type of online company – one that focuses on truth, integrity and the needs of its current and potential customers. With this blog, Jesse seeks to explain why Terra Marketing Group is different, provide advice for other companies who want to do ethical business on the Internet and showcase the best practices of the Internet marketing industry.

      Ethics? !!

      This is from a man who goes to any lengths to scam people and will say or do any single thing, absolutely anything, to shift the focus from his scamming practices.

      What actually needs to happen is for him to give back all the money he's stolen from people, and stop waffling on in his weasely way about giving to the community, because, without any proof otherwise, it's just a pile of poop.

      Jesse is storing up some hellish karmic retribution for the future! Saying that one does charitable acts, while actually stealing, is about as low as it gets…

      Karmic Retribution? Look it up! It's all cause and effect, folks.

  22. Not Kevin says:

    Vomit inducing indeed. There seems to be no limit to the depths Jesse Willms is prepared to sink to.

    Clearly he lives in some kind of parallel universe if he thinks he of all people can "provide advice for other companies who want to do ethical business on the Internet and showcase the best practices of the Internet marketing industry"!! WTF!? Really you could not make this stuff up!

    As for his philanthropy; I think the National Breast Cancer Foundation in Australia may have a somewhat different view of Jesse Willms and his charitable intentions! :

    What a scumbag.

    @Not Kevin

    Crikey. Abuse of trademark – that's like putting a Google, ABC, BBC or other logo on your website to make it look official, isn't it? !!!

    Have you got or seen any screen-shots of his websites with the pink ribbon logo on them? I must say, because of the continuing mis-use of all sorts of logos and trademarks by scum like him, I tend to just blank them out in my mind. I should pay more attention.

    BTW, the legal and highly beneficial Pink Ribbon organisation is here for those that want to check it out.

    Looks like Jesse Willms is back to his old trick of using a UK Ltd company for his shenanigans (remember Gillmap Limited, the "World Headqaurters" of Dazzlesmile/Dazzlewhite in County Durham?). The new one is called Circle Media Bids Limited and was incorporated on 03 August 2010:

    http://www.scamraiders.com/forum/topics/swipebids-are-scam-artists?commentId=3175695:Comment:16802

    The "company incorporation specialists" through which it was registered are "offshore company formation specialists" who also "incorporate limited liability companies in Cyprus" as well as Belize, Nevis and other exotic locales:

    fletcherkennedy.com/offshore-company/cyprus/cyprus_check.html

    Expect a new Cyprus registered Jesse Willms company to pop-up again any day now..(remember Farend Services?)

    • Strangely says:

      @not Kevin.

      You'll be pleased to know that I got four spams for SwipeBids this morning right next to your comment in my spam filters!

      They were ALL giving a Circle Media Bids un-subscribe link and address – although all the links were totally different – as were all the source email addresses.

      Interestingly, they ALL say to un-subscribe here:

      CIRCLE MEDIA BIDS LIMITED

      72 HIGH STREET

      HASLEMERE, SURREY, GU27 2LA

      However, checking further down the spam and there are selection of OTHER un-subscribe email addresses, which demonstrates the ubiquity and all-pervasive nature of spam, plus the dis-believable trouble that exists in un-subscribing!

      These commence with their claim as follows, which is a jpeg picture, NOT text, so it's hard to copy and/or trace!…

      our mailing list records indicate that your email address is opted-in to receive this email. To un-subscribe, please click here and your name will be removed from our database. 1225 Puerto Sol San Clemente, CA 92673

      It hyperlinks you to a web address which supposedly un-subscribes you.

      I also had an unsub link from urbanresources.com, whois?

      Steve Dipressi

      42257 Sand Palm Way

      Lancaster, California 93536

      United States

      But they also say;

      You may also elect to write to us at City Resources, 3616 Far West Blvd #117165, Austin Tx 78731.

      Another click-able image, but no text, for an unsub was here,

      28241 Crown Valley Parkway #F230 Laguna Niguel CA 92677

      I vaguely remember this one from an earlier investigation. If my memory serves me right, it's down a new build road of houses on Google StreetView, which still seem incomplete.

      In short. It's just like before…….

      The stealing.

      The hiding.

      The weasel wording.

      The catalogue of dissatisfied "customers".

      The Financial chicanery.

      The multitude of businesses.

      The plethora of business and associate addresses.

      The overseas accounting.

      and finally,

      The SPAM!

      Q. Have I missed anything?

      <img class="alignright size-thumbnail wp-image-7868" title="SwipeBids.com Gives Customers Big Savings – Never Pay Retail Again!_1281952191072" src="http://strangelyperfect.tv/wp-content/uploads/SwipeBids.com-Gives-Customers-Big-Savings-Never-Pay-Retail-Again_1281952191072-86×86.jpg&quot; alt="SwipeBids.com Gives Customers Big Savings – Never Pay Retail Again!_1281952191072" width="86" height="86" />A.. Well yes!

      Check out the screen-shot of the SwipeBids link from one of these spams….

      As @Not Kevin's link showed, only VISA seems to be handling the serial fraudster's billings these days. And actually, he seems to be a bit afraid of all the other card companies except VISA because they VISA is the only credit card logo one showing. Ha Ha.

      <img class="alignleft size-thumbnail wp-image-7869" title="SwipeBids.com Gives Customers Big Savings – Never Pay Retail Again!_1281959395125" src="http://strangelyperfect.tv/wp-content/uploads/SwipeBids.com-Gives-Customers-Big-Savings-Never-Pay-Retail-Again_1281959395125-86×86.jpg&quot; alt="SwipeBids.com Gives Customers Big Savings – Never Pay Retail Again!_1281959395125" width="86" height="86" />

      His usual trick of whacking up a load of logos (seen at the bottom, here) and then claiming that he's nothing to do with them falls a bit hollow though – when you consider that one logo really looks like security….

      Even more bizarrely, he sticks up the UPS logo, then claims not to be associated with them, even though, (as we all know), his businesses and others like it have previously all been close to a UPS depot so that stuff can be easily posted off! (Even more bizarrely, the security logo AND the BBC referral link which appears during the credit card validation check, are both served from a CloudFront server owned by Amazon – http://whois.domaintools.com/cloudfront.net)

      In actual fact, the security logo the Willms uses originates from the host, GoDaddy.com

      I've just checked their website to see what it means….

      It means bugger all, actually, and will probably be in contravention of GoDaddy's Terms and Conditions about uses of logo, brand awareness and/or copyright. See http://www.godaddy.com/ssl/ssl-certificates.aspx?… and then dig down through http://www.godaddy.com/Agreements/ShowDoc.aspx?pa….

      The gold padlock is for use with premium SSL hostings who've had accountant-type documentation etc. to validate and authenticate the business they're in, and it's legality etc.

      I've just run a quick (fictional) credit card through the SwipeBids registration system and at no point do the GoDaddy icons and locks show, as they should, from reading the GoDaddy T&Cs!

      Furthermore, the logo at the bottom is of others joined together, the GoDaddy one being much smaller than it should, so that nothing is legible, but an aura of authenticity remains.

      Bizarrely (I use this word a lot with ol' Jesse), yay bizarrely, Jesse IS registered on the TRUSTe system, yet chooses NOT to blab about it with a logo or anything on the main pages, but in his own T&Cs!!! See http://www.truste.com/trusted_sites/index.html#S where his Web Privacy Seal tallies with that claimed by him.

      However, if you truly believe the serial fibber, then you're a mug, mate. This Truste Web Privacy Seal supposedly keeps your data private – which leads me to the question,

      "How did he get my email address and spam me, if I'm all protected, privacy-wise?"

      I've checked some quotation links also. The BBC quote (there are a few quotes during the registration process) comes from an investigation into on-line betting and gambling which is what they say SwipeBids and similar sites actually are. See http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7793054.stm

      All in all, as usual with ANYTHING that Jesse Willms says and does;

      it stinks,

      it lies,

      it steals.

      That's ol' Jesse for ya!

    • Strangely says:

      I hope you've spotted the

      "Philanthropist And Entrepreneur"

      mentions in your Willms' trawls?

      Yep. Ol' Jesse is "giving back" to worthy causes – which is all fine and dandy until you realise that his "entrepreneurial skills" that he is sooo proud of involve fraud, deception, copyright theft and the full gamut of corrupt business practices that we've come to lament in the brave new vacuous world of the internet that he inhabits.

      See here for instance, http://www.prlog.org/10855284-noted-entrepreneur-

      or even his own homage to himself here, 'http://jessewillms.com/?p=114

  25. Strangely says:

    I think Jesse Willms is watching the goings-on at Pacific WebWorks (PWW) very closely. See http://strangelyperfect.tv/5146/more-on-google-pr

    In an effort to dodge what he sees as the inevitable flak, he's continually making deflection moves to alter his public face of conman, fraudster and thief to that of a caring philanthropist!

    'http://jessewillmscommunity.wordpress.com/2010/08/18/how-i-was-inspired-by-warren-buffett-and-bill-gates-to-give-money-to-charity/

    This latest pollution (above) of the internet airwaves is another fluff to his denialist ego. It's a continuation of his SEO theme of making multiple small self-referential blogs to up his profile.

    It won't work though. Just check out the litany of complaints on "rip-off report" etc for enduring proof of his crimes.

  26. Not Kevin says:

    I wonder if he is watching the goings at Central Coast Nutraceuticals, Inc closely too:

    "A US district court has ordered the marketers of acai berry supplements, “colon cleansers,” and other products to temporarily stop Internet sales schemes that allegedly scam consumers out of more than $30 million in 2009 through deceptive advertising and unfair billing practices, as requested by the Federal Trade Commission. "
    http://origin.businessreviewusa.com/news/rachael-

    Sounds very similar to the scams Just Think Media / Jesse Willms ran last year!

    "the court order halts the allegedly illegal conduct of Central Coast Nutraceuticals, Inc., imposes an asset freeze and appoints a temporary receiver over CCN and several related companies, while the FTC moves forward with its case to stop the company's bogus health claims and other deceptive and unfair conduct."
    http://origin.businessreviewusa.com/news/rachael-

    My guess is that all Jesse's UK Ltd companies and Cyprus Ltd Companies are an attempt to avoid a similar fate? An asset freeze being somewhat more complicated for the FTC to achieve when the money is in far flung ltd companies…

    As for Jesse Willms donation of $1000 to Kiva being worthy of a press release (no doubt just a part of his SEO efforts) – as a multi-millionaire donating $1000 is to him like donating $1 would be to those of us of more modest means. Hardly a gesture of such generosity as to be deemed newsworthy! I gave $1 to a homeless person this week, perhaps I too should prepare a press release!!

    As for "noted-entrepreneur-and-philanthropist" – the press release can only have been written by him as nobody else would use those words to describe Jesse Willms! Although I am sure the thousands of people fleeced by his scams would come up with more accurate alternative descriptions of Jesse Willms!

    Three new items of interest…

    ONE: since commenting above about SwipeBids' efforts at spamming me (http://strangelyperfect.tv/7108/jobs-at-just-think-media/#comment-2663), I accidentally went to the link and "un-subscribed" at that time, and since then the spam for SwipeBids has trebled! Nice!

    The new crop all say to un-subscribe using the links or write to the same address;

    CIRCLE MEDIA BIDS LIMITED

    72 HIGH STREET

    HASLEMERE, SURREY, GU27 2LA

    TWO:

    Someone is still being scammed by the Google Money Tree – at least that's what you'd think from the google alert to this website:

    http://www.shamscam.com/google-money-tree-chargin

    Unfortunately, it's not dated, so I can't answer for its veracity. And they're certainly busy folks!!!

    Because a reverse IP call on their IP address, http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/web-sites-on-we… pulls out a list of 298 domains hosted on the same web server, 174.133.193.90.

    What's clear though, is that the website shamscam hides their identity: http://whois.domaintools.com/shamscam.com , which isn't a good sign.

    THREE: Another Google alert took me to this website which seems to be confused over it's motives:

    Following this posting,
    http://pennyburners.com/swipebids/attn-swipebids-

    …where it warns people about the dangers of SwipeBids and ol' Jesse Willms, the very next day comes this posting:
    http://pennyburners.com/abcpennyauctions/163-abc-

    …where they are flogging penny auction sites, not entirely dissimilar to SwipeBids. They claim to be the guardian and informer of all things good and bad about penny auctions.

    I'm not so sure about the whole penny auction ethos anyway, but they've put some of their expertise and time to good use, they say! From this page http://pennyburners.com/swipebids/attn-swipebids-… on the website:

    As everyone knows, the PennyBurners Team is dedicated to “promoting the good guys (and gals!) and exposing the bad guys.” We truly care about the Penny Auction Community, and to show our dedication, we have decided to buy, design, host, and donate:

    http://www.SwipeBidsVictims.com

    SwipeBidsVictims is a website that will inform other SwipeBids victims of the pending lawsuit, and give them the opportunity to contact the lawyer and have their case added to the suit.

    The thing is,apart from the fact that I never knew a "penny auction community" existed, it actually looks alright – it's the idea of flogging the blooming things that puts the spanner in the works for me….

    Despite links back to the main anti-scam sites that I've referred to many times, there's something odd about selling cheap auctions sites, if you see what I mean? I mean, what if there then exist websites selling websites that auction, in an auction? It's just too weird.

    Also, the information they provide, if true, is that a NEW class action via this lawyer, Will Haselden, at,
    http://edelson.com/lawyers/#page_3

    …against Jesse Willms, the old philanthropist skulldugger himself, is very welcome news, and probably not entirely un-related to Jesse's recent self-pronouncements on his own goodness for the betterment of all mankind…. (I've gotta vomit now, sorry…)

    Let the show begin!

    Looks like Swipebids is stepping up their advertising blitz with ads appearing on Facebook: http://thegraygeek.blogspot.com/2010/08/scam-of-p… as well as on the MSNBC website:
    http://notmytribe.com/2010/scam-auction-site-swip

    (What is it with these scammers and their Melissa Theuriau obsession!) :)

    They are also churning out garbage press release fluff authored by a "John Smith"

    • Strangely says:

      ahh…Melissa! That's why – they're all written by young blokes!

      That FreePressIndex site is down so I couldn't check it out. But it does seem that Willms is following the same desperate pattern that we've seen with other scam sites previously – some of his own creation, even!

      Desperate times indeed.

      Now check out what is happening on the Monavie front. On this blog, http://www.lazymanandmoney.com/monavie-scam-was-m… 7k comments after the initial post and also having endured two previous threats from the Monavie company, the guy Lazy Man has now been threatened with blackmail! See this post:

      http://www.lazymanandmoney.com/monavie-blackmails

      I wonder if this would be a possible route for ol' Jesse to take against all the people that misunderstand his philanthropic good nature?

      As a reminder of how good and nice and kind and pink he is, here's a laugh,

      'http://jessewillmsethics.com/

      and here's a cry, going back a few years, into Willms' dealings and fines he's paid for being so misunderstood;

      http://www.truthaboutwulongtea.com/

  29. Strangely says:

    Going back the the re-appearance of the various addresses used by Willms and the others… Have you seen the latest news about Northern Cyprus which was prompted by the return of Asil Nadir to the UK to answer charges relating to his Polly Peck collapse? See:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-10818347

    It quite concisely explains how Cyprus became a haven for scoundrels, and how and why now, even though there are no official treaties, Cyprus is opening up and booting the scum out!

    It's probably all hanging off the Turkish desire to get into the EU and for the USA's desire to keep its missiles stationed in Turkey.

    Whatever, it all seems to point to a harder time for scum wishing to hide themselves and/or their profits.

    • Strangely says:

      Jesse Willms' local paper http://www.sherwoodparknews.com has cottoned onto his dodgy dealings now – see http://www.sherwoodparknews.com/ArticleDisplay.as

      From this we learn that his new business is yet another numerical nom de scam of:

      1524948 Alberta Ltd

      A quick search on this produces a long list of scam complaints, even without the "scam" keyword.

      One item of note, is that ol' Jesse has taken to suing a business for… get this…

      Intellectual Property – Copyrights

      See http://dockets.justia.com/docket/new-york/nysdce/

      He's suing http://www.quibids.com/, whose site looks remarkably like his own, apart from a couple of notable differences:

      ONE: QBids' Verisign logo works correctly and is not plastered with third party logos (apart the those accepted credit cards ) that imply some legality to the site. Willm's use of the term "Share the Fun" with a heap of non-working networking links beggars belief…!

      TWO: QBids is not emblazoned with a huge advert saying,

      "Swipebids is helping kids grow all around the world!"

      This last is particularly distasteful! The link goes to: http://www.swipebids.com/world_vision_charity.php
      It contains a heap of stomach churning rubbish without an ounce of real substance.

      And again! What? More?

      yep! Jesse has obviously been following the FTCs recent work against scams and scammers like him. Recently, they asserted that businesses like his were little more than a lottery and should come under gaming laws. And so Jesse has ANOTHER new page extolling his world view that "buying non-returnable bids" is not gambling!

      As a reminder of how it works:

      You BUY some "bids".

      You then use one of your "bids" to "bid" on an item.

      If no-one else "bids", time is added to the "auction" finish. Maybe you "win", maybe you don't. Usually…

      "Someone" else "bids". You have no idea if this "person" is real or a robot. Jesse says it's not a robot – but y'know, he actually has million dollar form in the fraud department!!!

      Some more time is added to the "auction" finish…

      Etc

      Etc

      Etc.

      If you "lose" the "auction", you lose all your "bids" that you've paid for….

      Now that's gambling, isn't it?

      The "quote" marks above are there to emphasise that these are NOT real auctions, NOT real bids as most people understand the term.

      If ol' Jesse tried this in a Roman market of old, he'd be crucified within 30 minutes!

      But it's not "days of yore" and he gets away with it using the smoke and mirrors of the web and copious shadow companies located all over the world.

      Jesse's pronouncements on the definition of gambling and lotteries can be found on his new page here, http://www.swipebids.com/not_gambling_new.php

      Smoke and mirrors time, folks!

      MEANWHILE:

      Jesse is fending off ANOTHER court case. See this one from California, http://dockets.justia.com/docket/california/caedc… The nature of this case is very familiar to Jesse Willms as he's been sued and lost many times for:

      Torts – Property – Other Fraud

  30. Terry Schneider says:

    To Whom It May Concern:

    You've made the news. You've received the free advertising. You have an information website. The prices (ending bids) seem to good to be true. I couldn't find a "contact us" e-mail address anywhere. Maybe I missed it.

    What else did I miss…the $159.00, up-front, "bidding fee". Please explain at your earliest convenience.

    Yes the World Vision stuff is particularly distasteful and just another attempt to use the names of legitimate brands/companies/websites/charities to try and enhance the credibility of his own toxic brand. A bit like he allegedly did with the breast cancer charity in Australia. And in the same way that the BBC, Rolling Stone and other news logos are prominently plastered all over the site with quotes which have nothing to do with Swipebids.

    In fact the Swipebids 'brand' is now so discredited that they are changing it (slightly) to Swipe Auctions [swipeauctions.com] – while auctions may not be accurate (gambling would indeed be more appropriate) the Swipe part is very accurate as that is exactly what they will do with your money should you be unfortunate enough to sign-up!

    “While a rose by any other name would still smell as sweet, in the online landscape your business name can make a big difference in terms of your bottom line,” Sherry said.

    • Strangely says:

      Funny how he decided to keep the "swipe" part of the name – and not the "bids"!!!

      I've been away for a long weekend, but before I left I noticed that the ol' Jesse was extolling the benefits if "split" testing on his very own website, stunningly entitled 'http://jessewillms.com/?p=214

      He also maintains that this is the way forward and that the "auctions" name was the real one all along and that the "bids" one was just a beta test as part of his master plan…. This is detailed in your prlog link.

      Unfortunately, this is just hollow lies.

      In his masterful "how-clever-am-I" spiel, he says that even his 'jessewillms.com site (Alexa rank is 1,146,050), is "split tested"…

      Yay?

      A killer quote, straight from Willms' newly redirecting website is on the subject of gambling, which I'm sure has hit a nerve with the young conster. Here, he says,

      Coming to SwipeAuctions is not like playing a hand of poker. It's much more similar to learning how to master the game of chess. See 'http://www.swipeauctions.com/not_gambling_new.php

      The text in this area is being continually revised and churned. I think he's decided it's his Achilles heel.

      Flogging counterfeit software from two of the biggest software companies in the world didn't phase him.

      He just decided to flog vaguely existent products like teeth whitener and funny tea, fruit juice and bowel cleaners;

      And somehow, conning people by stripping money from their credit card accounts for a string of non-existent products like this didn't phase him.

      He just set up shop anew.

      Time,

      and time,

      and time,

      again.

      But to me, the amount of effort going into this lottery-by-another-name seems wholly uncharacteristic of the creep.

      Therefore, it means something to him to keep it going.

      Hence the name-change spiel, "charitable" works and "advice" from a super young expert!

      Gosh and darn it! Isn't he such a nice helpful guy!

  32. Not Kevin says:

    Spilt testing my arse! The swipeauctions.com domain was only registered on the 20th of August 2010 – which exposes Jesse Willms lie that he was "spilt testing" different names all along!
    http://whois.domaintools.com/swipeauctions.com

    It seems that his employees are as deluded as he is (or perhaps "Hernan, Head of Public Relations at SwipeAuctions.com" is really Jesse Willms) – "We pride ourselves in being the beacon of moral and ethical business practices in our industry." Ha! Ha! Pretty much the same kind of crap that Jesse Willms writes on his blog.
    http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/new-nam

    Looks like Jesse has pissed off a preacher man too:

    "Not sure how you can do this. I work hard for my money as does everyone else that you have managed to steal from. The economy is awful and you have the audacity to steal what little us working folks have. I want my $150 back. I am a preacher of the Gospel and I will be praying that you will be brought to justice."

    Hopefully those CTV news clips on youtube will expose the real truth about Jesse Willms scams to a wider audience. :)

      In a further push to bolster his "honesty cred", he extols the same text as that on his blog (linked back) as well as that seen in his nicked video here about SPLIT-TESTING!! ROFLMAO.

      'https://youtu.be/crkn-IUGmTo

      His videos are attracting a huge volume of hits. As I write I was #31, #32 & #33! That's a 10% increase just from me so that split-testing lark really works!

      This is the news clip again with it's previous one.

  33. Strangely says:

    Of course, ol' Jesse's hypocrisy knows no bounds…

    Take his position on emails and spam. On the 8th September, the 9th September – well actually, every day for more than a month, I've had spam for SwipeBids…. Maybe you have too?

    Whatever. the 8th is critical, because on that day Jesse posted a post on his blog called,

    'http://jessewillms.com/?p=258

    I'll translate this easy-to-remember title from the self-proclaimed king of website marketing as,

    Using Email Ethically

    You can't make it up, can you?

    It starts of with his whining charitable dirge and then continues with such gems as:

    "Never sell their email addresses to a third party – because you cannot be sure they will behave as honestly and ethically as you will."

    Oh well. Read it and laugh for yourself. It'll be another "hit" to prove that his split-testing works! As the thief says at the end of his piece,

    It’s just good business.

  34. Joseph says:

    This is the preacher from Youtube. I am following you Jesse and praying your will be brought to justice. I find it amazing that you have even more audacity to say you want to "GIVE BACK" on your new website. Why don't you give back all the money you have stole from thousands of people? Check out your new website. This one is on me. Oh and you don't have to pay me back for this. It's my pleasure!

  35. Strangely says:

    I'm starting to see why ol' lovable Jesse Willms has dropped the "Bids" part of his scummy scam…..

    I reckon he thinks it's tarnished!

    I had a few spams today, one for SwipeBids (hasn't quite managed to filter through the spammy downlines that the name has changed yet, eh?) and two for one of his arch-rivals, Quibids.

    SwipeBids redirected to his "new improved and split-testedly better" auction website.

    Quibids redirected to something that wasn't QuiBids at all – it was a colon-cleanse site – again. Much like one of Jesse's originals way back here, say: http://strangelyperfect.tv/6568/dangerous-effecti

    As we now know from Jesse's pronouncements, this is all bad, bad, bad; whereas now he is all good, good, good. Don't we?

    Anyway. Here's the chain of redirects – and it finishes off somewhere familiar.

    Good article in The Age (Australia)
    http://www.theage.com.au/business/netting-web-sca

    "Even though Oprah Winfrey's Harpo organisation took on Mr Willms's group and others a year ago over ripping off their good names and images to con customers, it was not until last month that the US Federal Trade Commission buried its fangs into the flanks of an unrelated set of operators. The FTC website uses as an example an online ad for an acai berry product that names ''Dr Perricone'' , another TV medico – Dr Nicholas Perricone – who has appeared on Oprah, but whose speciality is actually skin, not diets.

    Intriguingly, barely a week after the FTC move on the acai products, a company called Circle Media Bids was incorporated in Britain and became the apparent ''owner'' of the Swipe Auctions site.

    Swipe's sole director and shareholder is Adam Ryan Sechrist, a 30-something who lives in York, Pennsylvania. An Adam R. Sechrist was also named on the site of the Canadian Better Business Bureau as an executive in one of Willms's companies. About the same time Circle Media was created, Sechrist also became sole director and shareholder of another British company, cutely called Ironi Ltd."

      Ian McIlwraith has done a heap of really good investigations. It's good to see newspapers doing this stuff. BTW, "The Age" seems to be a re-badged version or outlet for the Sydney Morning Herald.

      What I'd like to know is, "is old smarmy Willms-y-pants is going to sue the paper or the journalist for saying all these nasty things about him?" – Probably not, eh? ;-)

      Willms is going thick and fast at his new clean image drive. He's plastered a whole of of websites with his "news items" about his charitable deeds. There are more and more now so he's doing a good job of falsifying the perceived truth about himself. Somehow, (even!), he's managed to correlate his "gift" to some Boston hospital with the Boston marathon, so that at first glance it looks like he's running it for them! You can't make it up! See:

      'https://youtu.be/wjyMqfaort0 no backlink seo for him!

      You'll hopefully notice that the YouTube up-loader has a different willms name to the last time. This one is willmsy720. It's still him or his bro' tho' as the other massively watched (not) videos are of high powered expensive Italian sports cars which is right up his likes… BTW. I am the 5th person to have watched this video!

      To see how many times it's popping up, try this Google search on the title: http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Jesse+Willms+Sup

      Or try this search to see how many times his little news plug shows up in wholly unrelated websites: http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Children%92s+Hos

      Now to see why ol' Jesse's doing this, he helpfully has given us this saccharin sweet puff,

      Why Jesse Willms Donated To The Boston Childrens Hospital
      'https://youtu.be/RAHKFr0wBfE

      Except this time it's uploaded by a supposedly 25-year old MrCrazypinky compared to the previous 35-year old willms720. MrCrazypinky has 9 video uploads which in a similar way to willms720 have been watched a tiny amount.

      MrCrazypinky helpfully gives us tips from ol' Jesse about getting good on eBay, building websites, make money fast and of course the totally unrelated videos about Jesse and his donations.

      Personally, I think Jesse Willms is just about to crack and have a nervous breakdown. His actions are really disjointed so that even his charitable plugs are incoherent and mish-mashed amongst other web stuff.

      But one thing everything has in common with HIS videos is that nowhere have we heard Jesse speak and nowhere have we seen Jesse at all!!!

      The only time we've seen him is scuttling in the snow trying to avoid the inquisitional cameras from major media reporting.

      The only time he speaks is through hastily hired lawyers issuing vague threats.

      It's quite sad really.

    MORAL: Jesse Willms and all his businesses are immoral. They ignore unsubscribe requests. They say one thing and do the other. In short, they and him are a pile of shite from top to bottom.

    Following the links in this spam takes youo eventually to swipeauctions, not swipebids. A small point I know. But I did notice that they are now saying that:

    SwipeAuctions is better than eBay!!

    They do this by saying that eBay is untrustworthy in that you can't vouch for the "goodness" of the goods!!!

    This is the graphic they use that insinuates that all eBay merchandise is cracked and broken -oh dear… poor Jesse. eBay are quite big you know?

    Much like last year when he started his bizarre Britney Spears and heavy metal blogs, he's now just started this "biographical" blog above.

    Currently it's running the new default theme for WordPress with a clean install. There are no posts or pages with content.

    But when content arrives, these are my predictions of what WILL be in the blog, and what WILL NOT.

    An ever-increasing list of good causes to whom he's "given" the money purloined from Joe Publics across the globe.

    Some helpful tips about his experience on the internet as he conned people out of money.

    His love of cats, lad-mag women, wine and fast cars.

    NOT IN:

    How he paid millions to Microsoft and Symantech for selling counterfeit software.

    How his businesses were constantly refused merchant credit by card processors because of the level of chargebacks against him because of his scammy, hidden dealings, cloaked in secrecy. Not just one business though – a whole successive string of snake oil health and beauty websites supported by a plethora of fake news sites.

    How he's being sued by Oprah Winfrey for doing the above.

    How he advises on the one hand an ethical business approach and yet self-evidently, he's about as slippery and dodgy as they come! Well spam me if I'm wrong! Well spam me if I'm right!

    Something very odd happening in the Australian newspapers….

    All the reports in the above links by Ian McIlwraith have gone! Can't find anything about ol' Jesse and chums anywhere! Do you think they've been got?

    see
    http://www.theage.com.au/execute_search.html?text

    http://www.smh.com.au/execute_search.html?text=Ia

    All his other stories are there!

    perhaps, in this vein, we can see this story pulled very soon about another famous philanthropist, Zuckerberg.

    http://www.theage.com.au/technology/technology-ne

    In this, they describe his forthcoming "donation" to the soon-to-be-released and not-very-complimentary film about him and Facebook's genesis as a sort of PR stunt….

    Sound familiar?

    This is a good reason for making copies of everything as we cannot rely on the Wayback Machine for holding backups of the now ephemeral offerings by major news networks.

    Willms' self-publicity stunts seem to be running out of steam – along with his Swipe business – that's if Google search rankings are anything to go by!

    I've just run a few Google searches. If you recall, a week or so ago Jesse Willms looked all prim and proper with his philandering, sorry, philanthropy. He was top in nice-guy responses, low with scam responses.

    Now check these three searches:

    http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=SwipeAuctions
    His website is 1st, and in full view on page 1 results, we have the following EIGHT results contain the word SCAM…. not good for Jesse, eh?

    Now try his business with a space, http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Swipe%20Auctions This time, it's exactly the same!!!

    However, it gets worse. If you do the search using Google's new predictive search, his Swiping Auction business is scooped by a paid-for advert from http://www.luckybidder.co.uk at least in the UK!! Again, most returns look bad for Jesse, all containing SCAM somewhere or other.

    But what about Jesse Willms' sites themselves? Surely they must be top in the search rankings after all that effort he's put in?

    Try http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Jesse%20Willms

    Here you'll see that there's a 50-50 split on good-bad search results.

    What's worse though for ol' Jesse, is if you type Jesse Wilmms into the new Google search and the words scam and ripoff are prominently displayed as suggestions!!!

    He just can't escape his past, and cosmetic changes to his public persona do not change his present. Take this recent exchange of views regarding SwipeAuctions recent history.

    Seems Jesse Willms internet marketing / seo skills are not so good after all :)

    And if you search for Swipe Auctions on Google.com rather than .co.uk the first result isn't even Swipeauctions.com but a blog exposing the scam :)

    I recently got spam from Swipe Auctions to an email I know I have never given to them (I have a few free web email (hotmail etc) accounts which I use for all dubious sites to monitor how much spam they send out).

    However this spam was sent to an address which I would never give to them so I know for certain that they are sending unsolicited spam to email addresses which they have somehow obtained /bought / harvested or whatever.

    Looks like I am not the only one cheesed off by their spam as shown by this amusing account of a chat with swipeauctions psychic live chat 'chimps':
    http://www.c0dem0nkey.net/?p=826

    Of course Jesse / Just Think does have a bit of history when it comes to spam:

    • Strangely says:

      …and I like the idea of a psychic code monkey! That was a definite ROFL! :-0

      …and the thing is – is that spam is one of the main vectors of malware and one of the main methods that these twats like Jesse Willms, Robert Allen and the like plant their message onto our screens…

      It's NOT innocuous.

      It's not polite.

      I don't WANT to have to have to click to be taken off mail lists.

      I don't want any random email from anyone I don't know.

      I DO want emails set up to take micro-payments for every email sent. This is the only way to cut down spam to any sort of manageable amount, while allowing people the freedom to cold call if they must.

    • Strangely says:

      Personally, I'm getting a bit fed up with spam from the wonderfully named [email protected] !! (..and yes, like you I have spam magnets on old email addresses which I always use to sign up for stuff, plus, it keeps me entertained and up-to-speed with the latest waves of crap thrown our way)

      I've had redirects to SwipeBastards for weeks on this "From" as well as others. It's just the email address I like, that's why I can always spot it in my traps.

      A worse thing is LinkedIn. I joined them a bit ago to see what info all our spammy criminals may have put into a semi-hidden format.

      Since then, I've had 4 nasty spams with LinkedIn as the "From" address.

      However, I doubt that they are from LinkedIn as there are a variety of crap links that obviously have nothing top do with it….

      Take this trail – and be VERY careful with this. Make sure your anti-virus is up for it!

      BE WARNED, these are LIVE DODGY links below!!!

        And two more LinkedIn spam today demonstrate the weird lengths to which spammers will go to deliver their "package"…

        This time, I had almost identical emails as before, you know "enhance your profile", "add a resume", "invitation reminder" things, except today the link domains were:

        http://nmgfjpnp.info http://fxovyvoz.info

        They both redirect to the same fake Flash download page, this time located in Australia!

        http://hatcher.com.au/1.html

        Both of the redirecting domains were created today, via GoDaddy (of course) to someone who calls himself Edward J Palmer of Succinct Web.

        See WHOIS below of one domain. Apart from the name, all else is the same for both. They're in the USA.

    What a c**t.

    His website must be really going downhill currently as the old crooked methods are being rolled out and demonstrated in their full glory!!

    Even the front page is massively self-promoting, (in some desperation I might add), in full overload, desperately trying to undermine all the bad things said on the web about it, using all the heart-wrenching stories that he can dream up to somehow cancel the widely held belief that is actually a wide-spread and widely-known truth,

    THAT JESSE WILLMS AND ALL HIS BUSINESSES AND ALL HIS ETHICS ARE BENT.

    And they always will be – because why else would he stoop to underhand, disguised email spam? Only crooks do that.

      Now just replace "Matt Beckham" with "Jesse Willms" then there's the correct view of the self-aggrandising philanthropic git.

    Did Jesse Willms take over BidSauce.com to spark this poorly performing penny auction into one of his “Premier” spawns of the devil?

    Deep irony for Jesse Willms' publicity machine. yesterday, his first and major conduit to good tidings about Jess, PRLog, published a neat list of all the BAD things he's done c.f. the one-man-good-guy idea that he likes to promote:

    More treats from the scamraiders group in time for halo’s eve. Bidsauce.com may have taken steps to distance themselves from Jesse Willms. Included is a screencap of registration page mentioned. A good move in my opinion not to be tarred with the same brush.

    Be AWARE: BidSause is a possible deceptive website marketed by the same group as SwipeBids now called SwipeAuctions

    Pot calls kettle black!

    The legal complaint document of Jesse Willms' Swipey business(es) against Amanda Lee who is purported to run pennyauctionwatch.com makes good reading.

    <a href="http://www.eiscams.com/http//www.eiscams.com/download/Complaint.pdf

    “>http://www.eiscams.com/http//www.eiscams.com/download/Complaint.pdf

    Staggeringly, the pot calls Ms Lee's kettle's use of internet keywords as "spamming"!!!!!

    This really takes the biscuit!

    Now I'm not a fan of Ms Lee's website. Her stated aim is to:

    "…to help make the penny auction industry a better place (..)

    We developed Penny Auction Watch to be a place for penny auction enthusiasts to go for penny auction information.

    You see, I think the whole penny auction thing stinks to high heaven and should be sent back to the sewers of greed and corruption from where it emerged.

    But the list of "complaints" that ol' Jesse has lined up against poor Amanda reads just like his own "user manual".

    It's laughable, and any decent lawyer doing a "compare and contrast" exercise would demonstrate how Willms' businesses and ethics are exactly the same as he's listing in his complaint, providing only penny damages for Willms even if he wins.

    Because not only does Willms "have form" in the counterfeit and deceptive practices "industry" (see postings and comments on this website ad nauseum), but he is still promoting his businesses via spams and fake blogs and news sites, he is still moving his business addresses and contact points with gay abandon to every far flung corner of the globe, and still continues to attract swathes of complaints over his wallet-emptying sign-up processes!

    Willms may pretend to model himself on Bill Gates, but at least you can contact Microsoft in Redmond in the USA or Bracknell in the UK; not some random poxy address in the run-down former steel town of Consett or UPS mailboxes in the Utahn desert! And Bill's companies don't get blacklisted by credit card processors either.

    You have to ask yourself "why is there this difference between the two entrepreneurs?"

    As my old mates Derek & Clive would say, what a fucking cunt!

      Heard it on the radio today – Interflora are taking Marks & Spencer to court using the same basis that getting up the Google rankings is illegal.

      Crikey. They'll be banning advertising next.

    • Not Kevin says:

      Indeed – here we see the real truth about Jesse Willms, not the charity supporting philanthropist and entrepreneur he wishes to portray himself as but the ruthless use of his "swiped" money to lawyer up and threaten anyone who dares to expose him.

      As you say, any half decent lawyer has a mountain of evidence to show who is really the villain of this piece!

      And speaking of spamming, the latest pice of pr fluffery from Terra Marketing Group is yet another case of the pot calling the kettle black:

      "Terra Marketing Group announced its plan to encourage other companies to follow honest practices and not use spam email".

    More fluff on the way. Just spotted a new Willms website on the way to full frontal flummery.

    Nice. It's better without all his wordy-words though.

    I give it a week before we get a few carbon copy paragraphs dragged in from elsewhere.

    NOW, the BBB review of 1524948 Alberta Ltd noes not list CHANNEL9NEWSTODAY.COM as one of that group of companies but is as described under “Advertising Review” in this manner:
    http://www.bbb.org/edmonton/business-reviews/inte….

    Advertising Review
    This company has stated that the website 'www.channel9newstoday.com is not directly owned by them. They did state that they have hired an affiliate advertising firm to provide them advertising from that site. http://www.channel9newstoday.com is an advertising website that is designed to look like a legitimate and independent news story.

      Thanks @Justin.

      I am interested if the two websites actually end up having the same ownership, but the site scraping of content, and the copying or re-using of templates is nothing new. This website uses an appearance template of course, but the content is mine and others that contribute.

      And I'm personally not bothered an iota if anyone rips off Jesse Willms or is sued by him for copying his methods, which I think is what you're hinting at?.

      If this proves to be the case, then it definitely shows that there's no honour amongst thieves!

      Of interest, may be this website.

      http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/web-sites-on-we

      Enter Willms' self-sponsored "review" website 'SWIPEAUCTIONS-REVIEW.COM and you'll see two websites on this same server.

      'swipeauctions-review.com

      'live9news.com

      The latter is currently under maintenance but what's the bets that it's another fake news site with swipeauction plugs?

  58. Justin says:

    Due to a heads up directed to Mr. Jesse Willms, I assume, and swift action of his company's legal team, I see that the obvious rip-off of copyrighted material by this marketing firm behind the scenes at CHANNEL9NEWSTODAY.COM was brought to a hault. I still have the original complaint of being deceived by all these "correct" links from this “Advertorial” that say SwipeAuctions.com and ending up at “Digest It” cleanse promotion.

    illegally acquired funds from consumers by making unauthorized charges and debits to their bank accounts
