Stormpay Complaints

OK - what's next with Stormpay's "sleight-of-hand?" Where's the money now?

First Stormpay told the paid autosurf companies they had to drop all other payment processors and use them only. They said it was because they wanted to protect everybody from fraud. Riiiiight!

Next they told the autosurf companies they highly valued the excellent working relationship they had with them and just wanted to protect the companies and their members... hey, that was really nice of them!!

Then, once everybody complied (and upset a lot of their members in order to do it who used other payment processors), they froze all the autosurf companies' accounts!

Ok - so no one could get their money, but wait - then they started doing chargebacks to all the autosurf members' accounts, bank accounts, etc., but none of the autosurf companies were actually getting any of that money back in their accounts, so now nobody but Stormpay knows where the money is!

Finally, Stormpay posted the official Stormpay statement on their website! It seems they decided to play judge, jury and prosecutor and stated that the paid autosurf companies were a bunch of illegal ponzis and they were just protecting consumers! Yeah, right! So where did the consumers' money go?? And where do they get off playing the high and mighty on the ponzi idea? Who owned Tymglobal? Check out the rest of the nonsense at Google+Search+Tymglobal

So what can you do now? Tell somebody! Who? The Tennesse Division of Consumer Affairs and the Better Business Bureau:

Yeah.. It's getting more and more interesting Dave. I still believe this is part of Operation Cyper Sweep and Stormpay is stuck in the middle of this mess, because the Gov. misjudge the autosurfing industry still being a ponzi.

Yeah, Philena, that's possible, too.
