Past scams promoted by SJ include
1. “The Overnight Cash System”
In 2005/2006 several thousand people each lost thousands of dollars by getting involved in a pyramid scheme called the Prosperity Automated System (or PAS for short). Simon Johansson was heavily involved in promoting PAS along with his partner at the time who called himself Dr Lieven Van Neste. See http://www.sec.gov/litigation/litreleases/2006/lr19848.htm and http://www.bizoppsuk.com/overnight_cash_system.php
Note: the disclaimer mentions “Champion Trader” (http://championtrader.com/), another site SJ has promoted. The disclaimer has obviously been copied from that site.
2. “The New Millennium Group fraud”
The front man behind the con was Richard Dompier, 48, of North Carolina. In 2007 a federal court in Oregon, where the company was based, jailed Dompier for ten years after he was convicted on 29 charges of fraud and money laundering. He was told to repay £1.4m to investors. Evidence showed that Dompier told his victims that if they invested about £50 in a small bar of silver, he would pay them about £10,000 in commission fees over a 14-month period. The scheme attracted more than 5,000 investors and if Dompier had paid them all he would have been writing cheques for £600m. See http://www.kpic.com/news/local/6082166.html and

Do not under any circumstances communicate with SJ – he has promoted websites that have scammed many thousands of people of their hard earned cash!
