More structured settlement trolling by questionable cash now pushers, this time by someone whose voice mail says "This is Jonathan Structured Settlement broker" (as if that's his last name. LOL). In the structured settlement cash now world, where there are no roads, no boundaries and no rules of business conduct, why would anyone trust anyone who won't use their real name in a voice mail.
Jonathan the phantom structured settlement broker is touted by even sketchier characters in comment spam on a Bankrate.com post from 2014, by structured settlement trolls who also appear there to tout other trolls with the regularity of blow flies on a rotting corpse.
1The comment spam promoting "Jonathan structured settlement broker" was just created on a 2 year old article, two days ago, 1/4/2016 which is sketchy.
2. The comment below it by "Chris Yulong" was posted on the 2 year old article, and his account was just created yesterday 1/5/2016 is also very sketchy, in the trend of the figurative "maggots" in the structured settlement secondary market seeking to feed on structured settlement payments, who create fake profiles and post with superlative comments about working with someone, attempting to gain a new client through such manipulation.
3. If you take the avatar image of "Gabrielle" and run it through Google Images, it turns out that the "Gabrielle" image is Gabrielle Carteris, the Beverly Hills 90210 actress. The likelihood that Carteris would sell a structured settlement is doubtful. As you can clearly see, here, Carteris is currently working and has been continuously working with extensive credits. She also became Executive Vice President of SAG-AFTRA, following the SAG (Screen Actors' Guild) and AFTRA (American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) merger. She also serves as vice president of the California Labor Federation. Her husband is a stockbroker. There are no bankruptcy filings. Thus it would be unlikely that there would be a cash need so desperate to accept a fraction of their worth from a cash now pusher.
4. Carteris suffered an injury suffered while filming a TV movie in Vancouver, BC in 2006, which partially paralyzed her face and affected her speech for more than six months. Even if Carteris actually received a structured settlement, it would likely have been adjudicated in Canada, where you cannot sell structured settlements, or for a workers compensation claim (since it was an on the job injury), which are extremely difficult , or in some cases impossible to sell. According to my sources, the ability to sell workers comp structures is highly restricted restrictive. In the exceptional cases in the few states where it is possible, only Pacific Life and MetLife will allow it on a case by case basis. Pacific Life has only been writing structures since 2008, so that eliminates them from a Carteris hypothetical structure.
5. If you Google the number 224-637-4656, a bunch of junk came up.
Best Structured Settlement Spam Reviews website was established in April 2015 and may be of idle curiosity to readers. The operator of Best Structured Settlement Spam Reviews includes a growing rogues gallery of websites and YouTube accounts that are used, or have been used for structured settlement cash now spam.
Frankly, I'd like to know who this "Jonathan Structured Settlement Broker" is. Ever the thoughtful, I thought perhaps "Jonathan the structured settlement phantom" would better appreciate the Aikman Structured Finance Rotting Flesh Zombie Marketing Toy sent to me by Tim Aikman the week my mother passed last March, as part of Aikman's ill advised zombie marketing campaign. It has been rotting away at an "undisclosed location" ever since.
The Gabrielle Carteris image has been changed to some other image and a fresh dubious superlative on a 2 year old Bankrate.com post. Saves the verification call to Gabby's rep. On a coffee break, I called "Jonathan Structured Settlement Broker" to find out why it was used in the first place. What little he did disclose was that he is an independent and brokers structured settlement factoring deals with 5 structured settlement factoring companies. He also claims that his real name is Jonathan but would not give his last name. But he reads this blog and acknowledged that he"knows what I'm trying to do"
