Weren't fake testimonials and fake academic credentials in their company advertising bad enough? Have Owings Mills' Ryan Blank and Rich Ruddie now resorted to sanctioning selfie reviews to promote their structured settlement buyout business? Sure seems that way.
First the Einstein Structured Settlements website, a vehicle of Blank and Ruddie's JRR Funding, that has been used for "brand jacking" competitors and false advertising, including but not limited to outrageous paid for testimonials, says this:
"There are also known websites like the Annuityguys.com and annuitysold.com that have different speculative information for investment purposes that may be of use to our visitors so we want to recommend that you check them out if you are looking for a different investment vehicle" (emphasis added)
But annuitysold.com, which has gone dark since they were exposed in Annuity Sold Claims to Be "Licensed to Purchase". It's Baloney on September 8, 2015, is also run by Ryan Blank and Rich Ruddie and crew and emails have been circulating from each of them to others in the secondary market using an @annuitysold.com email address
In January 2018, punishment saw Ruddie and Blank's Annuity Sold, JRR Funding and other operations banned from doing business in Maryland for 7 years, after an investigation by the Maryland Attorney General.
