Calls to Einstein Structured Settlements are still resolving to Atlanta based Fairfield Funding a week after we broke the story of the relationship.
Whether or not Fairfield Funding writes the content on Einstein Structured Settlements (dot) com, is irrelevant because they apparently derive financial benefit from leads generated by the content, whether it involves brandjacking of competitors of Fairfield Funding, like JG Wentworth, implying that these companies are scam companies and general gibberish like this :
"Looking to sell off your structured settlemnet (sic) to one of us supposed "cash pushers"? What is a cash pusher you ask? We push cash from our account into your bank account and in exchange you give up your future payments but you get all of the money at one time instead of having to wait years or decades to receive it."
In previous years I have blasted Fairfield Funding competitors SSQ and Peachtree Settlement Funding for making the false and misleading statement that a seller of a structured settlement can get "all their money now" when they sell their structured settlement. The boys at Einstein are simply following the path blazed before them by Peachtree and SSQ, however nothing has changed about the misleading nature of the statement.
The use of an affiliate marketing companies like Einstein conceivably gives a cash now pusher the putative ability to detach itself from the content, to pull an Austin Powers with regard to the "Swedish made bullship emlarger" and say " Honestly It's Not Mine!" Whether anyone falls for it is another story.
It is worth examining which cash now pushers are deriving benefit from reckless bogus content. Why would any upstanding member of the structured settlement secondary market tolerate bogus content?
I informed the CEO of a NASP member the other day that a domain that was registered to him was hosted at an IP address with 3 other Richart Ruddie and Ryan Blank associated properties, including the reverse SEO company Profile Defenders. and that his site was being used to promote Sovereign Funding Group, whose CEO admitted under oath to creating fake identities and social media profiles that were and are being used to promote the business of Sovereign Funding Group. I asked the CEO of the NASP member "what's up?" and he said he'd look into it.
Sovereign Funding Group and its CEO David Springer have ben mired in lawsuits over unfair business practices for over 2 years. Ironically, it was represented to me on the phone and in writing by a former contractor of Sovereign Funding Group that a variant of the "It's not Mine" excuse was used by David Springer in negotiations with JG Wentworth to resolve the lawsuit that settled March 2, 2012.
A November 11, 2011 article on 800notes.com about an alleged tactic that Richart Ruddie (charto911@gmail) has allegedly deployed appears here. In that article the email excerpt from Ruddie discusses his reverse seo company (assumed to be Profile Defenders)
In July 2013, Einstein falsely claimed that our site was infected with malware when a sweep showed it was clean. In September 2013, Ruddie, then "acting on behalf of Einstein" tried to negotiate a removal of all posts written about Einstein in exchange for the removal of the two posts about the "malware". When things didn't go his way, only days later we started getting heavily spammed.
