Richart Ruddie, one of the folks originally behind Einstein Structured Settlements is apparently behind commentary about the letter to the editor written by Suzanne Dunn Bradford of DeSoto Texas with commentary that is fully of mirthfully inaccurate allegations of fact.
Ruddie, whose name appears on the domain registration for 1lightbulbs.com (along with tell tale charto911@gmail email address) credited on the Dallas News Writer commentary, or one of his minons, writes
"The editor's letter was written by a Suzanne Dunn Bradford of DeSoto, Texas and she would like to see elected officials from Republicans to Democrats to support people who follow the law. There have been 1,500 automobile accident victims in the last 4 years and their losses by taking structured settlement insurance (in her opinion) is almost 500 million dollars. Her husband died in an horrific car accident of no fault of his own. When she became a single mother with 3 kids to support it was troubling that the financing she needed was simply put not there."
Typical of the inaccuracies found on many of the pages on the Einstein Structured Settlements website, Richart Ruddie or one of his writers publish glaring inaccuracies that simply make them look foolish. Ruddie can be excused for not having first hand knowledge about ELNY. My research concludes that Ruddie, an Owings Mills, MD native was in nursery school at the time ELNY policies were sold. But that does not excuse the 32 year old or his delegees from not doing the research.
Had Richart Ruddie done so he would have discovered that:
1. The 1,500 were not all automobile accident victims.
2. The 1,500 were placed into the ELNY structured settlements in 1982-1986, not the last 4 years. Ms. Dunn Bradford's husband died 30 years ago.
3. Until 2013, these people received far in excess of what they would have received had they diversified or had they chosen a larger company with a longer hstory like MetLife, Prudential or New York Life.
Ruddie, or one of his minions, uses the commentary to pitch a website with a Washington DC area code that buys structured settlements from Hispanic annuitants. The linked website is by no surprise to this author, registered using a domain privacy service.
As reported previously, I have observed that since 2012, Einstein Structured Settlements has routinely used Rip Off Report, Pissed Consumer and the trademarks and brands of competitors to promote its business. In may behoove Einstein Structured Settlements to spend their time more productively and properly research their published writings so they could actually contribute something of value to the industry and to consumers.
