Einstein Structured Settlements reckless business practices continue as it has been discovered that it solicited tickets to a purported "Chicago Settlement Planning Event", purportedly occurring on December 22, 2014 between 3-5pm at the Holiday Inn at 506 West Harrison in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Owings Mills MD natives Richart Ruddie and Ryan Blank are behind Einstein Structured Settlements.
An ad was taken out in Crains Chicago business journal, with details also on a page of the Einstein website, indicating the details and the cost, $675 for 2 hours with a purported company, Einstein, whose lack of structured settlement savvy, given every opportunity, has yet to be disproved. Neither Ruddie nor Blank have settlement planning credentials.
If one was intrigued to attend the suspect conference and its lofty fee, a click on the registration button on Crains led you to the Einstein website. on which there was no registration form, but included a sales pitch The landing page there says tickets wont go on sale until two weeks before the purported event but the headline says tickets are "now available", which logically means that the headline was posted on or after December 8, 2014.
Here's my video that elaborates " Einstein Structured Settlements Misleading Chicago Non-Event"
Nobody I know ever heard of the event. Neither did the general manager of the Holiday Inn in downtown Chicago who left me this self-explanatory message February 4, 2015.
So which structured settlement purchasers do business with Einstein? Which companies are profiting off the false advertising? Is that something that the industry should tolerate? Should the "bar" be that low in terms of industry standards? Is that something that regulators should tolerate?
We know that Atlanta based Fairfield Funding has had dealings with JRR Funding and Fairfield Funding answered calls off the Einstein websites in 2014. As I continue to draw the connections you will hear about them here.
JRR Funding was among the Ruddie/Blank companies banned from doing business in Maryland for 7 years, after a Maryland Attorney General investigation into their frauds
