EasyNews has taken my money
FOR. A. YEAR.
Without my permission

EasyNews is famous for this.

This Un-Ending EasyNews.Com
Bullshit stops here and now

This page is being developed and will grow exponentially as this case develops.

This series of documents will demonstrate, I believe, a clear intent to steal money from my credit card by EasyNews.com.

We're preparing a very special document to be delivered to EasyNews' Merchant Bank.

Note: What can ICANN do? If we can prove premeditated theft in this case, and especially in a number of cases additional cases, ICANN and GoDaddy both have the authority to REVOKE THE EASYNEWS.COM DOMAIN. That's our hope and that's our goal. Enough is enough. These people are incapable of learning; so be it. Decades ago a British woman blatantly infringed on one of our registered trademarks. We were able to get her domain revoked and we subsequently picked it up. This case against EasyNews doesn't involved trademark infringement, but it does involve REPEATED behavior so damned putrid that it should qualify for the cancellation of a domain name registration either through the registrar (GoDaddy) or through ICANN if enough documentation can be brought to bear. That's why legal "Discovery" is the eighth wonder of the world.

Winter Park, Florida, Police Department

Winter Park, FL 32789, USA

You will consider this a formal criminal complaint of theft (credit card fraud) against the following company. I am out of the US for the foreseeable future, but I am able to provide a Winter Park attorney to assist in the prosecution of this criminal case if needed. The case is, however, straightforward, well documented, and self-explanatory. We're all tired of Internet thieves. We're drowning in them.

Back in May of 2020 I signed up for an "EasyNews" internet USENET account. This is a "service" that allows supposedly easy access to USENET material, old and news -- anything from ancient newspaper articles to books to imagery to apps. Within a few short days I found the service to be worse than worthless for a wide variety of reasons. It was just garbage, probably the worst thing I had ever tried to use. Through the following series of exchanges with the brainiacs at Easynews, I demanded a full refund, and received one. If you read the last email in this series, it says, verbatim:

New reply for the ticket #hhhhhhhh40
Hello,We have verified the provided information and as requested, your account has been canceled; you will not be charged again. Your refund has been processed and should complete within the next 7-10 business days.Regards,
Easynews Support
#EN0uuuuuu0

I took the refund and forgot about these idiots forever. Or so I thought.

Unfortunately, fast forward to 7-14-2021, I discover that they stopped taking my money for a couple of months back in 2020, probably to make me stop watching for their charges. But Easynews recommenced charging my account on 7-14-2020 and continues through to the present (7-13-2021). Each amount was for $9.98, for a grand total of $129.74. This is a high-volume, high balance credit card, and I wasn't specifically looking for Easynews apparent thefts on the statements, and so I missed them until just now, on July 19, 2021. Imagine my state of apoplectic rage. If I didn't live 8500 miles away, I'd be on a plane to Winter Park at this moment and that's no exaggeration whatsoever. We're all sick of thieves and shysters, but me, coming from Federal narcotics enforcement, particularly so. I. DON'T. LIKE. IT. And by God I will stop it where I can.

The Winter Park PD shall consider this a formal criminal complaint. I want the responsible party(s) charged, convicted, and incarcerated. Ideally, since this isn't their first rodeo with this precise behavior, they should be instantly shut down and disbanded forever. The latter is, of course, beyond the authority of local law enforcement, but it's not beyond the authority of a number of regulating agencies and you can bet we're going to be camping on their front porches.

A VISA chargeback has been filed, however most of these charges are so old they may not be eligible to be refunded on the card. In that case I will file a formal lawsuit in Winter Park and prosecute it by proxy and extract the un-refunded amounts plus attorney's fees, expenses, and other monies. If it costs me $10,000 to recover $100, then so be it. That's how sick to the gullet I am of thieves.

The original email thread from a year ago appears below. I do have all emails with header data as documented proof of their authenticity. Just have the prosecutor ask for it -- it's easier to send electronically.

I'm going to caution Easynews to never, ever contact me again regarding this or any other case. To do so will elicit a new and independent criminal complaint of harassment and I'll seek and OBTAIN a formal restraining order against these miserable sons of bitches so fast it will make their dizzy little pot-heads spin. And I'll post a copy of that here on this web page as well..

UPDATE July 20, 2021:

 

TO: ABUSE@GODADDY.COM

This is a complaint of ongoing (15 months) apparent credit card theft by easynews.com


ICANN demanded that we appeal to godaddy first. Failing a suitable resolution, we will continue to ICANN.

EasyNews.com has been apparently stealing credit card funds now for about 15 months. 
We have dealt with these types of scammers in the past and they have promised IN WRITING to stop stealing the funds, however, they continue to steal funds every single month.

Easynews is world famous for this kind of thing -- Google it for God's sake.

I am attaching a pdf that includes details.

This has been filed as a criminal fraud complaint with the Winter Park, Fl., Police Department, and also with the Florida (Miami) attorney general. Complaints are now being drafted to the FTC, the FBI, and other agencies unnamed herein. VISA has been notified and a complaint has been filed with the merchant bank for Easynews, as well as Paypal, and Boeing Credit Union. We are fully prepared to file a formal lawsuit against easynews in Winter Park. Honestly, it looks like we will have to do that to stop them because nothing else has worked.

A website detailing the problem has been posted. Give it a few weeks and Google "EasyNews Theft". We promise we'll do the SEO and it will pop up.

We've had enough of ALL thieving punks.

This is where the rubber meets the road.

TO: ICANN:

This complaint regards a website, easynews.com, committing apparent credit card fraud on an ongoing basis. We have tried to advise Godaddy of this at their abuse email address, however it bounces back as an unmonitored address and advises to use their complaint form. There is no complaint form; there are only a myriad of links that lead in circles. This is, of course, by design.

We are uploading a PDF showing details of the case.

Below is our complaint to Godaddy, which was never received by them and we have no known way to get it to them.

UPDATE July 22, 2022

The following agencies have formally accepted this complaint:

Copy to VISA as formal Chargeback (acknowledged as accepted) (13-14 more in the pipeline)
Copy to BECU (acknowledged as accepted)
Copy to FTC
Copy to ICANN (acknowledged as accepted) (see note below)

Copy to BBB
Copy to Winter Park, Fl. Police, as a criminal complaint of fraud and theft (acknowledged as accepted)
BCC:

The complaint is pending with other agencies and offices around the country.

In true form, Paypal has, as usual, misunderstood this case/complaint and has refunded only one of the $9.98 charges. Therefore, we will now file 14 additional complaints with Paypal, one for each instance of apparent theft.

VISA has also misunderstood this case/complaint and has refunded only one of the $9.98 charges. Therefore, we will now file 14 additional CHARGEBACKS with VISA, one for each instance of apparent theft.

EasyNews has had ample opportunity to refund ALL apparently stolen monies yet has so far refused to do so.

So be it.

I look forward to getting these Goddamned sons of bitches under subpoena authority so we can look at the records of their Merchant Bank and publicly disclose ALL the chargebacks that have been filed against Easynews.com over many years, and all the refunds they've been forced to tender.

These people are the scum of this earth.

Our advice: Get away from them as quickly as possible and STAY away from them, forever. They will cause you nothing but grief.

Is this past year of apparent credit card theft only an innocent error on the part of EasyNews?

Consider this:

My own online businesses have never once -- NOT ONCE IN 23 YEARS -- over-charged ANY card. Never. It has never happened and it would never happen. To charge a card, you must actually do that. Someone must submit a formal request for funds to be paid from that card. It doesn't happen accidentally. Additionally, if you do the searches, you'll find more instances of EasyNews pulling this stunt than you can count, going back many years. But here's the kicker: While you can find uncounted instances of Easynews taking money from credit cards that doesn't belong to it, and then being oh-so-slow and difficult when they are FORCED to refund, you will NOT find a single incident of EasyNews.com "accidentally" making a bogus payment or deposit to anyone's card. If we find any after we get Discovery rights through a Florida subpoena, we'll post them here. But we won't find any. We will only find refunds that Easynews was FORCED to make. No accidental deposits to any card, ever: that's a bet.

We must give these agencies some number of days to work through their archaic and reptilian systems before we can, in good faith, file an actual lawsuit in Winter Park, Florida, against EasyNews.com.

In the meantime, for those suffering under this same insane bullshit from this band of Goddamned hapless twits, here's a bit of WHOIS data to save you the lookup. As always, new developments will appear at the end of this page. This will continue, most likely, for years to come. We've bloody well had enough of this effing shit. EasyNews is now 100 miles over our Red Line. Let the games begin.

UPDATE:

As stated, we must wait some unspecified period of time before we are allowed by the courts to file a formal lawsuit. We're now checking the Florida statutes to see what that time frame is. The more agencies we bring on board to resolve this, and the more EasyNews resists their efforts with confusions, obfuscations, lies, denials and general bullshit, as is clearly their Modus Operandi based on the cases we're uncovering, the higher the odds we'll be granted attorney's fees and repayment for our time and trouble in this mess. Personally, my work-rate has been $55/hour for quite a few years (sadly, no raises). I now have 2.4 hours in this. Generally, a judge will award a percentage of such damages claimed. This ain't our first rodeo with thieves, shysters, con-artists, scammers and Goddamned skunks. When we are only assisting other victims, we are largely unemotional. When we are scammed ourselves, we are BY GOD PISSED, and that's the motivation and energy we bring to this present case against EasyNews. Fuck 'em. Fuck 'em to Bloody hell. Enough is enough. We've watched countless suckers struggle with EasyNews over the years, to first get them to stop charging their credit cards even after EasyNews has promised in writing to stop, but EasyNews just keeps right on charging and charging and charging, apparently hoping the victims will just go away eventually and let them continue to steal funds forever. But then, after the victims finally get EasyNews to cease and desist, the real struggle begins of trying to get the money back. Many never succeed. And that will no longer fly with these pieces of miserable shit.We'll be getting our money back, either the easy way or the hard way. We're in this now. In for a penny, in for a fucking pound. We are really, truly, screaching fucking apoplectic. By GOD these people have balls. It just defies nbasic sanity. Did they actually believe they could keep on keepin' on with this bullshit forever before someone finjally, decidedly called them out? Are they really that fucking stupid? In a word, YES. Snowflakes are really that fucking stupid.

Once we get the go-ahead to file a formal suit, our Florida attorney will most likely be required by law to serve these shits a formal demand for all money owed and demanded, and give them the minimum amount of time under the law to comply or go to court. We'll post that demand, along with all other relevant documents right here. This bullshit shall stop. Seriously, this is the end of this bullshit. At some point on this page we'll set up a comment section for victims to disseminate their own experiences along these lines.

We've witnessed over about twenty years, more and more and more small online businesses adopt this scurrilous tactic of "accidentally" charging a customer's or ex-customers' credit card, just hoping those customers won't notice it for whatever period of time they can get away with. When they're finally caught and confronted, they will lead the victim in circles for as long as they can with faux misunderstandings and complaint routines that don't work and online forms that are blind alleys, and then, when it's all stopped and the customer relaxes, these assholes will secretly start charging those cards again after a few months. It's a game and it's a consciously executed scam. If and when law enforcement finally comes knocking on their doors, the companies apologize profusely and refund instantly -- but of course it's rare that law enforcement ever comes calling. This time will be different. Some police departments are a bit, shall we say, lackadaisical when going after crimes like this. Fortunately in the US there are legal mechanisms in place to wake them up. --Which reminds us -- we forgot to file a criminal complaint with the Orange County Sheriff's department. Pending now. It's common that petitioners and complainants must file and file and re-file complaints repeatedly to get the balls really rolling in the right directions. Rest assured, we can do that.

Very often, the only way to completely stop scumbags such as EasyNews in the short term is to actually change the credit card for a new account number. That's how far these types of fucking thieves will push it to KEEP TAKING YOUR MONEY.

At some point this entire mess will be summarized (with or without the profanity -- haven't decided as yet), and will be formally submitted to Congress. Congress seems to be currently in a mood to start reigning in these pieces of snowflake human feces, and now might be a very good time to get the case of ongoing problems with EasyNews in front of them.

Here's how to do it:

Submit wrongdoing to the US Congress

Submit wrongdoing to US Senate Committees -- that's why they exist

The chances are high, maybe even 100%, that either some Congress-members, their staffs, or Senators and/or staffs, have been victims of this exact same skulduggery by EasyNews and they're pissed also. We hope so.

Doing all this is a bit like pouring water on a rock. Usually it just runs off, unnoticed. But every once in awhile a few molecules of H2O seep in through a tiny crack, and in time that can split the rock apart. Then big things happen. Just look at Facebook's Antitrust nightmare (aka "Git 'er Gone" dot com).

If you've also had a damned belly-full of these miserable human skunks (EasyNews.com) and are ready to take concrete action to stop the insanity, try this link.

 

UPDATE:

We have allowed a few days for these complaints to start trickling down to the people who need to see them. That takes time, and often they get "stuck" in the process queue by the lazy, the incompetent, and the unprofessional. It is always required to go back in to these agencies and rattle cages, do follow-ups, file new complaints in some cases, sometimes redirect complaints to more narrowly focused agencies and offices, and go over heads in many cases. That process begins on Tuesday, July 27, 2021, Asia-time. It begins in earnest. The reader might wonder if our initial fury would wane and mellow. No. It has only increased. Think of it this way:

The neighbor kid comes comes to your house and sells you a box of cookies and you tell him thank you, and you tell him to go take the price out of your change jar. You've known him awhile. You know his parents. You trust him with this small amount.

So he goes and get the few dollars out of your jar. Done deal.

But a few days later you open the cookies and you discover they're not only inedible and gross, they're completely riddled with worms and insects.

You immediately go back to the kids and show him the cookies. He's not at all apologetic, but argued weakly, apparently just hoping you'll forget it and go away. It's a great way to build repeat business, eh?

But finally he does refund, and you tell him in no uncertain terms to stay out of your change jar because you won't EVER be buying his cookies, nor anything else, again. In fact, you don't even want him in your home.

He writes you a note that says he's kinda, sorta sorry, but not sorry, but in any case, you don't ever have to worry about him taking money he hasn't earned again, because, well, he just wouldn't do that. And now he's putting it in writing.

You put a lock on your change jar just to be sure.

You watch the change jar over the next several months to be sure this little miscreant hasn't sneaked into your home in the night and taken more change that he hasn't earned. And, thankfully, he hasn't. You drop your guard.

Life goes on. You don't speak to the little shit next door, nor do you allow your kids to play with him ever again, and when people ask you what happened, you tell them exactly what happened.

15 months later you are checking your change jar and to your horror, you find it's EMPTY. You immediately go look at your home security footage and you see that this Goddamned thieving little son of a bitch has been sneaking into your home EVERY MONTH. How does he get in? He somehow got a copy of the key.

For 13 months this piece of shit has been sneaking into your home while you sleep, and stealing your money.

You ask around the area and find that a huge percentage of your neighbors have ALREADY HAD THIS SAME EXPERIENCE with the dirty little prick.

And your reaction is exactly WHAT?!

If he's an adult, then all options are open. All.

If he's eleven years old, then you go after the parents for having hatched such a lump of infected mucous.

And you don't stop going after the parents until you (1) get your Goddamned money back with interest plus compensation for your time, and (2) make sure every household in the region knows exactly what they can expect from this loser and his loser family, forever. Hopefully, you get them to move to some place where people of that ilk are welcomed with open arms. Like Pakistan.

--Because NO ONE needs snakes in the grass like this, in their hood.

Point is, do you forget this skunk? Nope. Not even close. You FINISH IT so it stops once and for all.

If you were, say, England in 1750, and you were losing countless cargo ships to pirates in the Caribbean, would you just "let it go" until not a single cargo ever reached its destination? No. You'd sink the pirates. You'd have no choice.

 

UPDATE July 26, 2021:

1. The Winter Park Police department is now engaged in this criminal complaint.

2. A good deal more information has been uncovered about this company (EasyNews.Com) and we'll begin to compile and disseminate it here in the next few days.

3. We have uncovered addresses for this outfit ALL OVER Winter Park, Florida, as well as South Dakota, and Arizona, some of which do not trace back to office structures at all, but to places like Smoke-Shop style mailbox drops, or for supposed home addresses of the "owner" that appear to trace back to office buildings.

4. We are searching for EasyNews.com's merchant account holder. Boy, do we have a document for them. VISA should be able to supply it.

5. The South Dakota police have advised that the FBI should be brought into the loop. We have already filed with them; we will redouble our efforts to get them engaged (I worked in concert with the FBI in Federal Narcotics enforcement in the 1970's; I have really no hope of obtaining any meaningful help from them, but they make excellent archives keepers).

6. We have begun the FOIA process of obtaining certain business records of EasyNews from government sources.

7. We have begun to research and approach attorneys in Winter Park, Fl.

8. We have been advised to bring Interpol into the loop. They are nearly worthless at the business of law enforcement. Instead, they are a great "dissemination hub" for data to law enforcement agencies around the world, but particularly in western Europe. What has EasyNews been up to in other countries? Inquiring minds want to know, and when you steal from us, our minds become singularly inquiring. We are the junkyard dogs from which you wish you'd never stolen the bone.

9. And now let's take a look at the actual Corporate records of Easynews Holdings Inc.

And to think, all EasyNews.com ever had to do was NOT STEAL. Even now, they could mitigate this significantly by REFUNDING the schlepped funds in the amount of $129.74 (minus the $9.98 Paypal has already refunded) to either our Paypal or VISA or BOTH. But they haven't. And they won't. And so be it. We're only becoming more pissed. Is there a theoretical limit to how pissed we can and will become? No.

Incidentally, both our Paypal account AND VISA card accounts show debits by Easynews during this same time period. Ordinarily, we might assume that the Paypal account was merely drawing from the VISA account. But the charges appear to be DIFFERENT. We're still trying to drill down to the bottom of THAT mystery, and when it comes to EasyNews, there are more than enough mysteries to go around. Just wait for the data to be appended soon.

 

The Corporation data below may save some victim a little searching. It is valid as of July 26, 2021.

It represents one grain of sand on the beach with regard to what we'll uncover in time:

Do we know any of THESE people? Oh, there's Gabe Miller!

We could go on with this forever. Literally, forever. We could fill a hundred websites.

For those of you who've been screwed by any of these dipshits, we've given you enough to go digging on your own.

And with this, we have enough to find those who need to get served, and serve them.

We'll continue to flesh this out at a later date. How much of their online presences will VANISH between now and then?

We're guessing, a LOT.

And all for a lousy hundred bucks.

But it's not really a hundred bucks.

It's a hundred bucks times X, and we think that X represents a very big number.

To the crew we say this:

You should have kept your fucking hands in YOUR OWN pockets.

And that sentiment isn't only our own.

Sooner or later you HAD to know you'd dip into the wrong pocket, right? You HAD to know that. If you keep dipping and dipping and dipping, you'll sooner or later get bitten. But the jails are full of fools who are incapable of extrapolating out to that certainty. Goddamnit we're mad.

 

Here are a FEW links that will lead you to more links which will lead you to MORE nauseating links should you choose to follow the paths:

 

Item #1 (Brookings Police Department)

Item #2 (Five credit cards scammed?)

Item #3 (USENET SERVER SCAM?)

Item #4 (EasyNews Customer Service Non-Existent)

 

Honestly, we can list this stuff all day long, but the reader is, we hope, finally getting the idea.

We'll drop tidbits in like this from time to time, but we really must concentrate our efforts towards:

(1) Getting our money back WITH TIME PAID FOR TROUBLE AND WORK

(2) Getting EasyNews criminally charged, either locally, or Federally, or both.

(3) Getting the EasyNews.com domain taken away from these Goddamned fools. We sure as hell don't want it. But someone who won't ABUSE it needs to have it and use it correctly. Can we get this done? We did it before. Criminals don't get to use domains for criminal enterprises. Let's see just what we can prove.

(4) We'll make the case to the Florida Corporation Commission that this band of stupid fucking airheads is not responsible enough to be a Corporation. Period.

(5) Educate the unwary public about this outfit (and so many others). Internet crime is threatening the very Internet. If it continues to grow at the current rate, the Internet will become unrecognizable -- a churning sea of nothing but scams and lies and fraud. It's close to that now. We like the Internet. We don't want to see it dismantled by teensie minds with even smaller consciences.

Here are a couple of choice copy-and-paste blurbs from the above links:

Hi,

I want $1,000 dollars from you crooks. I haven't used Paypal in years. Send a cheque for 1,000 dollars to Greg Carr General Delivery XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Use Purolator or Fed Ex if you want and I will move on to the next bugbear.

You ppl owe me a grand.
>
>Your service is a ripoff a total fraud. You scammed me for around $500 dollars. Even after I canceled my service with you you billed me again for $113 although the credit card company reversed the charges. Your service never worked for me. I have been on USENET for 25 years and no one I know uses your service. I contacted the Brookings, South Dakota police force and your so called address is a mail drop company UPS. There doesn't seem to be anything more I can do legally about this and there is no way I am traveling to Florida this year. Hope you catch Wuhan

>Greg,

>I am a detective with the Brookings Police Department. I was asked to look into your complaint regarding USENET. As of right now I don’t have a ton of answers but wanted to let you know what I’ve found out so far. The address listed for USENET is actually our local UPS Store. I was able to confirm with UPS USENET does have a mailbox at the store #146. I have identified the person who set up the box as a male out of Winter Park, Florida. It also appears he has a similar online business set up called Easynews, which comes back to a UPS store in Miami Florida. The phone numbers for both businesses appear to be out of Phoenix, AZ and I believe they are both VOIP numbers, which is quite unusual for a legitimate business. I believe I have also identified a legitimate business which this guy does work for in Winter Park, Florida so I am planning on doing some follow up with that company to see if I can find anything else out about him. I know these aren’t real answers right now but I can
>tell you there is no physical business her in Brookings, South Dakota that business operates out of and as far as I can tell no “employees” for the business here either. Why he chose to use a UPS mailbox in South Dakota is puzzling as well but I will continue to dig on this and see what I can find. I will let you know what I do find out regarding this. If you have any questions please let me know.

And this one:

I had 5 credit cards compromised in a little over a year. After switching my subscriptions to different cards, and putting them on Paypal when possible, I narrowed it down to Easynews as the only usage that was present on every card just before it was used fraudulently. I let my account expire for a few months, and had no fraud. Then I renewed, and there was attempted fraud 3 weeks later. | I wrote them about it, and they suggested I get antivirus software, so I gather that they’re not terribly concerned about breaches in their system.

And this one:

The Lowlife Criminals At USENET SERVER And Easy News Try To Scam Me Again.

© UsenetServer | 120 22nd Ave S. #146, Brookings, SD 57006 they sent me a email yesterday once again trying to scam me. Their so called service never worked for me and even after I canceled the service which they acknowledged they continued to bill my credit card. I was able to get some of the money refunded by them. Could you please cancel their mailbox since it is being used for fraud. Have great weekend.!!!
