Bulldog75 "45 Security Tips" from OOM&F Forum Part 1
45 SECURITY TIPS: ARE YOUR ASSETS & FAMILY SAFE
The last few years have witnessed an all-out assault on your personal and financial privacy. Credit-reporting agencies, schools, Internet marketers, medical clearing-houses, and dozens of other private organizations, Government all now maintain detailed records on us. The worst offender has been the U.S. government.
PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS PERSONALLY! THIS IS STRICTLY PROTECTION MEASURES AND BUSINESS FOR ONE TO TAKE CARE OF NOW.
Herein are Great Ways To Protect Your Privacy:
#1. The first law of privacy is: TO STAY QUIET, particularly when one is in public, on the phone, or sending faxes or e-mail. DO NOT TAKE THIS PERSONAL; IT'S ALL ABOUT BUSINESS AND YOUR SECURITY! IT ONLY TAKES ONE PERSON TO 'UPSET YOUR APPLECART".
In fact, electronic communications are now so vulnerable to interception by government agencies, private investigators, and other snoops, that one shouldn't say anything in these communications you wouldn't want published on the front page of the New York Times or recorded by the IRS.
One can now get hacked into from your printer. Use separate computers and printers. One for on-line and one for off-line, IMHO.
# 2. Don't flaunt one's wealth, particularly if you have a lot of money. If you own a fancy home, make sure it looks as modest as possible from the outside. suggestion to buy cars under $75,000; Keep new homes/apartments/condo under 1 million. There is no need to advertise wealth.
The IRS regularly searches car-purchase and property records. If they suspect tax evasion – real or imagined – they can freeze your assets, and seize your car and home. When traveling overseas, you have to be even more careful.
Driving a fancy car or dressing like a "rich" American – i.e., the way you normally dress – can make you a target for robbers, kidnappers and anti-American terrorists. Also limit your credit card use. Every time you use your credit card, thieves could steal the number and rack up huge charges.
It could take months or even years to get it all sorted out. stick with a car no higher than a LEXUS, to 75k, or one's draws serious attention.
# 3. Shred or burn important documents. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that it's 100% legal for snoops to rummage through your curbside trash and keep any papers they find.
So never throw any important papers in the trash without shredding them – including bank and credit-card statements, utility bills, letters from Social Security or other government agencies, information from your stock broker, etc.
Make sure and use a cross-cut shredder ($100-$150) which reduces documents to confetti, rather than a less-expensive shredder that cuts paper into strips which can be pasted back together. For ultra-sensitive documents, nothing beats burning them.
# 4. Isolate sensitive computer files from snoops. As we use our computers more and more to keep sensitive records and correspondence, it becomes more important to protect them from snoops. The #1 threat to your sensitive files is your modem, fax, or DSL Internet connection – anything that electronically connects your computer to the outside world.
Thanks to cookies, e-mail wiretaps, and other techniques, when you're browsing the web or reading your e-mail, snoops at the other end can download files from your computer hard drive.
The only sure way to protect yourself is by keeping all sensitive information on a different computer (or at least a different hard drive with its own, separate operating system) than the computer you use for web browsing.
In other words, you use Computer #1 to browse the web and send e-mail; and you use Computer #2 for word processing, accounting, and storing important information. Computer #1 has no important files or sensitive information.
Computer #2 has no electronic connection to the outside world. To minimize expenses, your two computers can share the same keyboard and monitor, by the addition of a network hub (about $100). Warning; Now as of 11/11 printers can now be hacked into.!!
# 5. Keep your web browsing and e-mail private. Whenever you contact a company or organization on the Internet, the computer at the other end will often insert a "cookie" into your computer – enabling merchants and government agencies to keep track of your web browsing.
The information that can be collected about you in this way is absolutely mind-boggling and includes your name, address, phone number, detailed information on the type of computer you are using, your Social Security number, credit-card numbers, a list of your friends and business contacts, and much more.
To keep your web browsing private, use an anonymous connection service,
For further protection, encrypt your e-mail, using high-level, 1024-bit encryption software, such as Pretty Good Privacy (PGP). http:// www.pgp.comZero Knowledge Systems (ZKS) offers software called "Freedom" which also uses 1024-bit encryption and which: Allows you to use multi-pseudonyms that can't be traced to your real name Prevents the receipt of Internet cookies Provides multi-layers of encryption.
# 6. KEEP YOUR HOME ADDRESS & PHONE# PRIVATE! This is the single MOST IMPORTANT step you can take to protect your privacy though all items within this POST are urgent for your welfare. Government snoops can't nose around your home, bug your computer, or listen in on your calls, if they don't know where you live or your phone number..
To keep your home address private, rent or buy your home in the name of an out-of-state corporation (Delaware and Nevada corporations are best). Also put your utilities in the name of the corporation, as well as your phone, and magazine and newspaper subscriptions.
This is precisely what TV personalities, professional athletes, and film stars do to protect their privacy. And it's not expensive. A Delaware corporation can be set up for as little as $150 and maintained for $50 a year!
Take your names off your local country tax rolls and replace your name with "property Owner". this is crucial!!!
# 6 B: Receive all MAIL personally addressed to you at a nearby mail drop, such as Mail Boxes, Etc. (about $15 a month), or an Executive Office Service ($50 to $150 a month), or at the address of a friend who owns a nearby business (free). Then use this address for your driver's license and car registration.
Naturally, your car will also be registered in the name of your corporation. Properly set up, a Delaware or Nevada corporation can also dramatically lower your taxes, if you're an independent contractor. (Please consult your attorney.)
For a private home phone, use a company name when setting up a new phone account, rather than your own, and make sure and get caller ID, complete blocking. To add a further level of phone privacy, purchase a prepaid cell phone – such as those offered by Trac Fone through Blockbuster, WalMart, and Staples.
No name, address, credit check, etc. is required to set up an account, and you can buy phone cards for cash to add more time. As of 11/11 Wal-Mart sells i-phones for less than $100 and Unlimited internet, text and talk for $55 per month. This is a fabulous rate!!!
#7 A.) (TWO PARTS) . Keep your medical records more private. Information in your medical files can be used to deny you insurance, jobs, and legal benefits. It could be even used by a government just slightly more authoritarian than the one we now have, to take away your children or commit one elsewhere.
Unfortunately, each time you see a doctor or check into a hospital or clinic, they will usually demand your Social Security Number, which in turn will be used to file and locate your medical records.
You can protect yourself from unwanted snooping by getting an alternative Medical photo ID from ID Network (IDN). No SSN is required, and medical records are kept in your own handwriting. $9.95. Call 1-888-329-3686 or 314-416-7411, http://www.idnetwork.com.
#7 PART B: In the civilized society, we each have a crucial zone of privacy shielding us from outside snooping and control. Privacy is about keeping more of what you earn – protecting the sensitive information in your computer - avoiding being hassled by the IRS or police – protecting your children – and minimizing your chances of a 2 am visit by a machine-gun-toting SWAT team.
The battle for your privacy is the battle for your freedom. Ultimately it is a battle we will win. AMEN.
#8. EXCHANGE TIME : these are suggestions to consider; you decide what IS BEST UNDER YOUR SITUATION. THERE ARE MANY OPTIONS HERE FOR PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES. The wolves inside and outside the bank can be few to many in different clothing. Your Life and Your Life Savings may be at RISK.
# 9. Do not park in the bank lot. Why show your car tags to others that will jot them down and trace u? A camera can take a photo of you and your tags for blocks away. Take a taxi or rental car to the banks.
# 10.. Go with someone to the bank; spouse, best friend who is a fellow Dinarian. Caps and glasses are nice. Make no new friends at the bank or locally who might discover your fortunes.
#11.. Make an appointment , if required, to make the 'exchange'.
#12. Know your rate before you go. Have a predetermined game plan. Shop your rates. Seek investment angles, advice also from maybe Smith Barney, Scottrade Inc, etc, various options.
# 13. Watch your body language, look and play the part of Investor. MANY maybe WATCHING. Use dressy attire but no jeans or T's.
#14.There is NO rush to cash in; supposedly many weeks and option days to have the possible 15% tax advantage with no audits (this is still a rumor; will be confirmed sooner or later next week). Seek competent tax and legal advice.
#15. If your deposit is in an acct "non interest bearing savings acct" this should be Dodd-Frank. check with your banker. NIB accts are usually unlimited in coverage.
#16. SMITH BARNEY or MORGAN STANLEY INC. OR SCOTTRADE INC ET and others can re-insure your accounts somewhere in the $600,000 TO ONE BILLION $$ range per account.
Seek legal advice and the broker / company policies. DO NOT LEAVE SIGNIFICANT LARGE SUMS IN INSTITUtIONS UNLESS ITS RE-INSURED; IE: LLOYDS IN
#17. AFTER MAKING YOUR INITIAL DEPOSIT; TRANSFER IT TO ANOTHER INTEREST FREE CHECKING ACCT WITHIN THE WEEK; SOONER RATHER THAN LATER. THIS PREVENTS WIRE TRANSFER AGENTS AND PAST BANK KNOWING YOUR NEW ACCT #!! (AGAIN, PLEASE FILTER ALL THIS DATA. YOU DECIDE WHICH WORKS FOR U, BUT TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE AND WAITING IS NOT HEALTHY FOR THESE ISSUES AND ACTIONS HEREIN "MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE".
# 18. ONLY USE YOUR PASSPORTS FOR IDS: IT DOES NOT HAVE YOUR HOME ADDRESS, SOCIAL SECURITY # TIED IN. Avoid using your Drivers License for anything but the cops and court when or if mandated!
#19. Use UPS postal drop for home address or your attorney's office work address until you get things squared away about physical addresses. Never use one's home address for anything, especially: mail, fed ex, UPS, !!! Have your bank statements go to a Po Box! Never let one's attorney know how much money you have.
#20. IMHO, "Irrevocable Business Trust" or a "Irrevocable Spendthrift Trust" saves your wealth, health and happiness from the tax man. . It's Worth every penny and more. Trusts are much more apt to protect large estates. Revocable Trust hold little or no water with the IRS & States.
#21: IMHO: Legalshield.com or in some states, PREPAID LEGAL INC.: for family, business, Wills, IRS audits, Citations, legal situations. 100's of legal help issues that may give legal piece of Mind and ease the pocketbook too. Attorneys are assigned within your State to handle your cases. Some situations are outsourced to qualified attorneys within your state and they contact you. Fees average $17-49 monthly.
#22: BEWARE/ ALERT: RFID )))) RADIO FREQUENCY ID. RADIO CHIPS MAYBE INSIDE YOUR CREDIT CARD. IT IS ELECTRONIC ‘PICK-POCKETING’ OF ANOTHER’S CREDIT CARD # AND EXPIRATION DATE.

#23 (#23-36 WERE ADDED 7/16/12): Reduce Your Risk of Identity Theft: Traveling (for business or pleasure) can increase your exposure to financial risk. Here are some simple tips to protect yourself and reduce the risk of identity theft as you head out on your summer vacation.
#24: Clean out your wallet: Take only your essential documents, like your driver’s license and just 2 credit cards – one to carry and one to leave in the safe at the hotel in case your wallet is lost or stolen. Don’t carry your social security card in your wallet – ever. Leave your extra credit cards or identifications documents at home. Men – keep your wallet in a buttoned pocket, women – wear a purse with wide straps and locking clasps, and don’t hang it on the door when you use a public restroom.
#25: Leave your checkbook at home: You shouldn’t need it if you have credit cards. Leave your bills and private papers at home, too.
#26: Make a copy of your travel documents: Copy your passport, driver’s license, airline confirmations, etc. Leave it with a trusted friend in case you need help, or keep a copy safely tucked inside a suitcase pocket in case the original gets lost or stolen. Make a list of what you have in your wallet, along with the phone numbers on the back of your cards.
#27: Stop your mail or have a neighbor pick it up: A full mailbox with bank statements and credit card bills is a sure sign for hackers and thieves that you are not at home. Also, stop the newspaper, and don’t broadcast your travel plans on social networking sites.
#28: Alert your credit and debit card issuers: Let them know where you are traveling, how you may be reached, and when you will return. This helps the fraud department stop charges that may not be yours, and reduces the risk that your cards will be “frozen” due to unusual activity when you are away from home and can’t be reached
#29: Keep an eye on your cell phone: Many people are storing user ID’s and passwords and other personal information on their cell phones. Secure your phone with a security code so that it can’t be accessed if it is lost or stolen.
#30: Consider a temporary credit freeze: A freeze will deny access to your credit history, so ID thieves can’t open accounts while you are away. Setting up a freeze through the three credit reporting bureaus – Transunion, Experian and Equifax – takes time and money, so this is the most beneficial if you are planning a period of prolonged travel.
#31: Look for safer ATMs: If you need cash withdrawals, ATMs in bank lobbies are less vulnerable to devices used to capture your information, and are usually better lit and safer in general. They are also more likely to have surveillance cameras.
#32: Be careful with computers in hotels and other public places: Don’t access your financial data on hotel or other public computers or public Wi-Fi networks. Public computers may have spy-ware or malware installed which could record everything you type. Be sure to log out of any sites that you may access before leaving the PC.
#33: Beware of front desk calls: If you receive a call from a “clerk” saying that they need to re-enter your credit card number, hang up and call the front desk yourself. You don’t now who is at the other end of that call.
#34: A few simple steps will go a long way in protecting you and your information and prevent your vacation or business trip from turning into a headache. If you have any concerns about your personal information, notice any suspicious account activity, or experience a customer information security-related event, contact your bank branch immediately so that they can assist you.
#35: ONLY PUT ONE'S PO BOX ADDRESS ON THEIR CHECKS. NEVER PLACE BIRTHDATE OR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS OR EVEN PHONE NUMBER ON YOUR CHECKS. MAKE IT DIFFICULT FOR THE WOLVES/THIEVES IF THEY TAKE ONE'S CHECKBOOK.
#36: ACT IMMEDIATELY AND ACCORDINGLY TO PROTECT ONESELF, FAMILY, BUSINESS. ONE OR TWO MINUTES COULD SAVE : TIME, MONEY, GRIEF, UNTOLD PAPERWORK & CHAOS!
#37: Any major ideas or investments, always bounce it off someone you trust like your CPA, Attorney or Investment advisors. Many are ashamed to admit they've been taken advantage of or conned. Do not be over-trusting, nieve or gullible.. When or if someone tries to interest you in a venture involving money /investments, say, "I'll discuss this with my real estate agent, CPA or lawyer and get back to you." Then talk with someone you trust.
#38: further info on personal identity: Scam-proof your communications by taking control of your personal information. Put your phone numbers (home and cell) on the Do Not Call Registry. Opt out from the sale or sharing of your personal information by contacting the three credit bureaus, your state department of motor vehicles, the Direct Marketing Association and companies with which you do business. Thieves cull your information and use it to open bogus accounts that can ruin your credit scores, credit and make your life absolutely miserable.
For more information on how to remove yourself from these databases, see the Federal Trade Commission's Web page on sharing your personal information.
#39: Don’t Trust Your Caller ID: Never do business over the phone, unless you initiate the call. Here's why: No matter what your caller ID might say, you don't really know who's on the other end of the line. If you place the call yourself, divulging personal information isn't as risky. If you receive a call from someone who claims to be with your bank, insurance company or some other place where you do business -- unless you recognize the caller -- say you'll call back. That will give you time to make sure the number is legitimate. Simply call the company's published number and ask to speak to the individual who called you, or to someone in the appropriate department.
#40: Ways to make using a debit card safer include the following: Run your purchases as credit so you don't have to input your PIN. & Always double-check your card when a clerk, cashier or waiter hands it back to you and make certain it's the same card you handed over.
Be suspicious of people who want to stand too close to you when you're using your debit card, particularly when they are using a cellphone. They could be recording your debit card information with their camera
#41: Regard All Links With Suspicion: Social networking can be a great way to keep up with friends and family, but scammers have found the Internet a gold mine of opportunity. Most of us know not to click on links in emails from people we don't know or to acknowledge those silly get-rich-quick schemes from strangers, but you should never underestimate a con artist's creativity.
For instance, a recent scam on Facebook involves a fake game based on the "Twilight" series. Fans are prompted to click on the link, exposing their personal information to scammers.
Best rule of thumb: Be on your guard and never click on links of unknown origin. Check on them by running a search with the relevant keyword (in this case, "Twilight") and "complaint" or "scam."
42# Safeguard Online Activities: Don't join the thousands who fall victim to online identity theft schemes each year. Some are as simple as planting a keystroke logger on your computer to copy your private information, while others involve complicated email exchanges.
Here are some of the best strategies for avoiding online fraud:
Don't ever respond to emails asking for your account information since they are almost always fakes.
Never click on links embedded in emails (even a friend or relative can accidentally pass along a virus). If you must see that funny video, type the URL directly into your browser.
#43: When you decide to purchase from an online merchant, always make certain that you're dealing with a reputable site. Check for complaints and never click on a link; instead, as with email links, type the company's correct URL into your browser.
Make it a habit to double-check that order forms are secure before completing them. Instead of the standard "http," the URL will begin with "https," which indicates a secure transmission.
#44: DOUBLE REMINDER : Don't forget to maintain up-to-date, functioning security software and a firewall WITH latest up to date Online Protection.
#45: Guard your medical insurance information and ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION OF ANY NATURE with the same zeal as you do your financial data. the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association says the fallout from medical fraud can damage your credit rating, open you to litigation and even result in your receiving improper medical care. "Always examine your explanation of benefits for treatments that you didn't have," he says.
THE LESS INFO there is out there about you, the harder you are to target. Make the con artists' jobs difficult by avoiding their scam tactics. They don't deserve to score off your hard work.

KTFA PREMIUM MEMBERS ................. LEAVE WHAT YOU LEARNED INSIDE OF TEAM CHAT BUT ANSWER ME THIS QT:
FROM 1 TO 10 .................... WHAT WOULD YOU RATE YOUR NEXT MONDAY CC AT?
If someone was actually honest enough to say, “Frank, while your information is usually good, you consistently use vague phrases like soon, shortly and about to happen which mean nothing in this chase. So I would rate your calls a 5. After all, you are the one who predicted it would happen in the first quarter. I know, Frank, now you say it did, but hasn’t been implemented, like every guru under the sun hasn’t already done that trick 30 times over the past 7 or 8 years.
How long do you think that person would be a member?
Frank reminds me of a little kid who must constantly be told how wonderful her or she is and patted on the head or they get whiny.
Then there was this post from Saturday night –
Frank26 -IMO ................ THE Small bills WILL SHORTLY BE PUT IN PRINT .......... ON AN ARTICLE AND BOARDS…
Those words, shortly. Just what does that mean? This month, next month, six months from now or 2019? You’ll never get an answer because Frank “doesn’t do rate or dates,” though of course, he certainly suggests them!
Then on Sunday there was this from one of Frank’s friends or sources, a guy who calls himself AG who made this cryptic comment which is totally laughable if you think for a moment.
EVERYTHING TOUCHES EVERYTHING, EXCEPT FOR WHAT TOUCHES NOTHING
Understandably, it had the crowd of Frank worshipper’s uhhhing and ahhhing, like Moses had just come down from the mountain. Only problem is, I’d bet no one single person actually knows what the hell this AG said, except the usual guru dribble that it sounds intelligent, until you realize it’s just b.s. Put it in English not in vague terms.
So funny I almost fell off my chair.
White Hats Report #60
A Storm IS Coming
It’s been 11 months since we released our last report. This fact should not be considered to reflect our disengagement from the overall battle. On the contrary, we have been very busy behind the scenes in the ongoing fight to expose the cabal and restore our Republic.
Those faint sounds you’ve been hearing………… the change of the long time cabal influenced and controlled regime in Saudi Arabia TO the UK’s dogged determination to exit the EU via Brexit TO the exposure of the corrupt, CIA controlled media (Operation Mockingbird) TO the outing of the cabal infestation of the FBI and DOJ TO the unsealed Federal Court indictments TO the current and ongoing exposure of the sexual predators in DC, the media and Hollywood (the pedophile networks are next to be exposed)……………….. are the foundations of the cabal supported European Satanic bloodlines starting to crack.
President Trump is a wrecking ball, his very existence in the White House has caused panic and consternation throughout the ranks of the cabal and their Masters, even prompting the ZioRat family themselves, the Rothschilds, to publicly come out in criticism of Trump. The significance of Jacob going public talking about Trump “threatening to destroy the New World Order”, Lynn Forester de Rothschild’s constant whining on Twitter about Trump and David “Plastiki” Rothschild tweeting about US gun laws, is proof the bloodlines are concerned about their loosening grasp of world power. For them to even come out in public and speak is sign of their desperation.
February 16, 2012
This is the historic day when Lord James addressed the House of Lords in the UK and exposed the $15T fraud perpetrated by the Federal Reserve with the assistance of Homeland Security to create money out of thin air and transfer it to the account of Pureheheart Investments, LTD in Europe. At the time, the $15T represented roughly 150% of the total US debt. To the cabal this was just another criminal scheme, never letting a big number stop them from continuing to perpetrate fraud on the US taxpayers.
The UK government did nothing and the US government was even more silent on the issue. Obama, the Kenyan born Slacker-in-Chief was complicit in this fraud as was Congress and SCOTUS. Well, as the saying goes:
“The chickens WILL come home to ROOST”
As always, there is more to the story, much more. It involves the usual suspects: the New York Federal Reserve Board and the US Treasury complicit in a fraud of epic proportions.
In reality, the fraud began 6 years earlier when a Federal Reserve trading program contract was consummated with a private individual from Indonesia.
The Coming Storm
If you look to the horizon, you can see the storm clouds forming. The distant rumble of thunder can be heard and soon, the heavens will open and the rain will fall in sheets. The cleansing is about to begin. But make no mistake, it WILL be a storm of epic proportions, generated NOT by HAARP or the cabal controlled weather machines but by the Patriots and white hats in the US and all across the world.
In the lead up to White Hats Report #36, in reports #34 and #35, we put our readers on notice of the upcoming exposure of the $15T fraud.
Consider this your notice.
A storm is coming and we need all your help to get this out there in social media: Twitter, Facebook and whatever group and social circle you are a part of. EVERYONE needs to know.
Timing is EVERYTHING.
“To secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.”
-From the “Tactical Dispositions” chapter of The Art of War by Sun Tzu
I wrote Tyson Allen Rhame (owner of Sterling Currency Group) predicting Government intervention back in 2013:
If you figure out how many people have to be suckered into buying Iraqi dinar to make your $20+ million dollars monthly and multiply that by years upon years of deception, it equates to TENS OF THOUSANDS of upset investors. Your arrogance will meet all those people reading this case along with Google, search engine forums, lawsuit review forums, and news agencies all around the world. Most importantly, you’ll see the Government reviewing this information and starting their own investigation. – You can read the ENTIRE EMAIL where I explain it all to Rhame. Case 1:13-cv-00878-RHB Doc #32-2
In 2015, the FBI and US Marshall’s office raided Sterling Currency Group and Tyson Rhame’s home. The United States Attorney filed a lawsuit against Sterling Currency and issued warrants to seize assets of Tyson Allen Rhame, James S Shaw, Carole Laurette Shaw, Frank Miller Bell, Sterling Currency group and many, many others! Sterling’s Attorney David Lilenfeld is partners with Rhame and Shaw in Sterling Funder LLC, also mentioned in the Federal complaint.
As of 2016, the Federal CIVIL case against Sterling Currency Group has been put on hold pending the outcome of a related CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION.
Sterling Currency Group LLC (DinarBanker.com / SterlingCurrencyGroup.com) filed a lawsuit against us and we fought back with a counter-lawsuit containing information about their online operation that I’m sure you’ll find interesting!
Sterling Currency is a company that sells Iraqi Dinar (Iraq’s currency) and Vietnamese Dong (Vietnam’s currency) to people online. It’s owned by Ty Rhame and James Shaw (United States Attorney claims Carole Laurette Shaw is also an owner) and David Lilenfeld (Lilenfeld PC) is their full time salaried attorney. He is also Rhame and Shaw’s business partner in Sterling Funder LLC, a Crowd Funding website – Lilenfeld refers to his “partners” as his “client”.
The online sales of Iraqi Dinar has been extremely profitable for Sterling; how profitable? Attorney Navneet S. Chugh gives us an idea by stating in a closing argument that Sterling Currency Group’s sales for the first 3.5 months in 2011 were 65 million dollars.
Mr. Chugh also made mention of Sterling’s operation in his opening statement of Civil Action File No. 2011Cv197363 as:
Mr. Rhame and Mr. Shaw had just started an iraqi dinar – selling business in the United States. And I know it’s kind of unique, that why somebody in the United States buying iraqi dinars, but, believe it or not, these people would actually fly to Iraq, pick up actual dinars, which is their dollar, pack it up in suitcases, and bring it to the United States and tell folks in the United States that this piece of paper is going to appreciate.
The United States Attorney states that “Sterling’s revenues have been considerable, for since 2004, Sterling has earned over $600 million in gross sales or receipts”.
Before I summarize my Lawsuit involving Sterling, let me first share statements we discovered promoting the Iraqi Dinar on Ty Rhame and SterlingCG websites, which we submitted to the court.
Why would someone in the United States Buy Iraqi Dinars?
Below are statements telling folks that the Iraqi Dinar is going to appreciate, one going as far as calling those that don’t invest, fools. These statements, promoting Sterling Currency Group, claim that Iraq’s currency is an investment of a lifetime, a jackpot for investors and that your investment can only go up in value and guaranteed to never fall.
[Note: when you follow the links below, you’ll be taken to Internet Archive’s digitally preserved copy of the webpage where the statement is found; this Archive takes historical snapshots of websites at a point in time and used in many court cases; because of its popularity it may be slow loading but worth the wait]:
- “People are getting large returns who invested in Iraqi dinar” – by sterlingcg showing a picture of Tyson Rhame.
- “This emerging currency is going to be a jackpot for the investors” – by sterlingcg showing a picture of Tyson Rhame.
- “You must invest in Iraqi dinar” – Shows Ty Rhame along with a photo on “Pure Volume”, a place for sharing your personal music likes. Notice the post titled “General: Does Iraqi dinar assures promising investment?” promoting Sterling Currency Group and also sterlingcg.jimdo.com.
- “The dinar will be soon revalued” – by sterlingcg on DevHub.
- “This is the only currency in which you should invest and if you miss out this opportunity then you will be fool” – By “Youssef el Hodaigui (Youssef el) | blog on Myspace”.
- “The investment of a lifetime. It’s difficult to find something comparable” (*see page 11) and, “The same exact investment in a mutual fund with above market average returns of 11% year after year, would fall short of this mark” and “If the Iraqi dinar were to climb to a dime, you’ve got two hundred thousand dollars under your bed. What if it were to reach a dollar or approach its peak value of over $3.00?” and “The “All-time Low” of the Iraqi Dinar appeals to sophisticated investors – Sterling’s website.”
- “This currency will only rise and rise. No chance to go down” and “Advantage of investing in Iraqi dinar is that you will never lose money” and “I would like to tell you that this is not scam” – by “Youssef el Hodaigui (Youssef el) on Myspace”.

I hope that you will take the advantage of this situation and make sure that you get the benefit out of it. it is the best time that you act now, it may be too late. – discovered on a “Calling Card” website registered by Sterling’s Currency Group’s marketing agent Youssef El Hodaigui linking the term Dinar to a Sterling.

These are some of the statements promoting Sterling Currency Group / Dinarbanker that we discovered and included in our court exhibits when we counter-sued Sterling. Statements like these spread throughout the internet are what gave me a false sense of urgency to buy dinar. That was a long time ago, and yet, even with all the warnings now sweeping the internet, people still rely upon statements like those above without verifying such claims.
The State of Oklahoma warns people considering buying Iraqi Dinar, be it from a dealer or individual:
Oklahoma residents are seeing an increase in solicitation for investment opportunities in Iraqi Dinars, the currency of Iraq. The Oklahoma Securities Commission (Commission) and Oklahoma Bankers Association caution Oklahoma investors against making uniformed decisions regarding Iraqi Dinar currency exchange investments.
Oklahoma residents have been offered unsubstantiated claims for extraordinary returns on Iraqi Dinar investments. High pressure sales techniques are used when offering the investment including stating this is a time sensitive investment that requires immediate action. The majority of these investments result in the Oklahoma investor’s complete loss of principal.
These investment offerings require careful research. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not true, nor will it be profitable to anyone but the promoter. Investors should do business only with registered brokers* and investment advisers. Investors should report any suspicion of investment fraud to the Commission.
*a registered Broker is NOT the same as a dealer who has registered with the U.S. Treasury as a Money Service Business (MSB). Registering as an MSB is something that dinar dealers are required to do by law and often use to give the appearance of being a registered Broker.
– read the entire warning from the State of Oklahoma.
*Note: The quotations by Sterling and the statements made by the Oklahoma Securities Commission and Oklahoma Bankers Association are not to imply that Sterling is being referenced by the Oklahoma warnings or that the Oklahoma Securities Commission is aware of any statements Sterling may have made.
Update – the United States Attorney has since filed a lawsuit against Sterling Currency Group, see link to read more.
Forbes: “Throwing good money at a very bad idea”, as stated by Forbes writer Robert Laura:
In my opinion, they don’t fit anywhere! Let me reiterate that; the Iraqi dinar and the Vietnamese dong do not fit into a retirement portfolio in any way, shape, or form. Both monetary units are often referred to as “scam” currencies for good reason. Countless warnings and blood soaked war stories are prevalent online, but to my surprise investors continue to fall for it, throwing good money at a very bad idea.
As it turns out, the scams success is based on a powerful combination of greed, apparent inside information, and the ability to see, feel, and touch the currency. In fact, the most compelling part of situation is that both the Iraqi and Vietnamese currencies are legitimate and tangible. Investors can not only hold them, but also show their spouse, friends and even fold them up and put them in their wallets. Furthermore, they are part of a regulated industry and available for purchase at a few major US Banks. All factors that seem to make investing in either of them a very credible and enticing opportunity to outsmart Wall Street, best fellow investors, and get rich quick by uncovering secrets the government doesn’t want us to know.
Yet, as you already know, if it sounds too good to be true…investors should run like heck. I reached out to several currency exerts to help me explain the ins and outs of this ridiculous business in an effort to help retirees and other investors avoid falling victim to this and similar currency scams going forward.

Review of Sterling Currency Group Lawsuit
Sterling Currency Group tried to sue us in Georgia for alleged hyperlinks they considered bad; they claimed the links were a form of Google Bowling which harmed Sterling’s rankings and that because their domain is trademarked, the hyperlink is a form of trademark infringement. Sterling sued us using Trademark Law and allegedly provided a copy of the lawsuit to Google to restore their ranking.
We denied the allegations and filed an abusive litigation notice against their attorney David Lilenfeld PC. Sterling lost the case on jurisdiction and filed again in Michigan. Having performed our own electronic discovery (not ordered by the court), we counter-sued Sterling for $20 million claiming in part:
28) For years, Sterling Currency Group d.b.a. dinarbanker.com / sterlingcurrencygroup.com tried to beat Iraqidinar.org’s ranking.
34) The overwhelming evidence uncovered to date reveals that Sterling’s true purpose in filing its Complaint is: a. To answer to Google with a cover up that involves intentionally and wrongfully blaming Counter-Plaintiffs for Sterling’s own violations of Google, Microsoft’s Bing, and other search engine policies for legitimately ranking in search engine results; (a) As Sterling’s agent explains, he has been penalized many times in the past and needs a way to cover their tracks (Exhibit B, pp. 36-39, 42). and at the same time, b. To silence Iraqidinar.org’s warnings about buying Iraqi dinar. (a) Using Counter-Plaintiffs as Sterling’s fall guy also serves to silence protected free speech including warnings about the Iraqi dinar scheme and damage Iraqidinar.org’s search engine rankings so that people searching for information about the Iraqi dinar scheme will never find it.
See Case 1:13-cv-00878-RHB Doc #11 Filed 09/18/13 Page 32 of 72 Page ID#79
80) There are at least 70 separate unlawful uses (each constituting numerous violations of law) of Counter-Plaintiffs’ copyrights and trademark since July 2011 as outlined in the Infringement Reports of Exhibit F. a. Sterling unlawfully used these copyrights and trademarks in blatant disregard of conspicuous notices of copyright / trademark; (a) Despite the conspicuous notice, the stolen property is then used in a deceptive network of webspam and illegal marketing.
See Case 1:13-cv-00878-RHB Doc #11 Filed 09/18/13 Page 49 of 72 Page ID#96
We presented 70 copyright infringement reports many of which were used on websites registered by Sterling’s marketing agent “Youssef El Hodaigui” to promote Sterling more than a year before the initial lawsuit.
*see document 11 page 34, 35
Only one exhibit of an alleged bad link was presented in support of Sterling’s case, it was a single page pdf of the term “dinar”; that term was located in the footer of a website about animals and claimed to be hyperlinked to Sterling’s website, which they called a “bad link”, in part because it was on an off topic website (animals rather than dinar); the website was not owned or controlled by us and the alleged hyperlink was said to point to a website address that didn’t exist stating that “the url is HTTP not HTTPS even our site has been SSL since day one!”.
[You’ll notice however the user Ty Rhame on purevolume links to that very same website address (http rather than https) below his statement “if you are looking for the best profit out of your currency investment, you must invest in Iraqi dinar”].
During our own discovery, the same “bad link” was found on numerous websites containing our copyrighted images taken without our permission and surrounded by webspam with links pointing to Sterling’s website, such as Charlotte SEO, an animal website and the footer link on Moroccan Cuisine, all websites actually registered by Sterling’s marketing agent Youssef El Hodaigui (who was listed as Marketing Director for David Lilenfeld (Sterling’s attorney and business partner in Sterling Funder)); there are many such sites, not including free hosting sites, such as Youssef’s Myspace blogs.
Forbes mentioned Sterling Currency Group’s Ty Rhame and Youssef El Hodaigui in their article titled “Iraqi Dinar Soars Again?”.
There were 14 counts listed in our complaint against Sterling Currency Group, shown below:
- Count One: Copyright Infringement
- Count Two: Circumvention of Copyright Management Information in Violation of 17 U.S.C. § 1201 et seq.
- Count Three: Federal Trademark Infringement in Violation of 15 U.S.C. § 1114
- Count Four: False Designation of Origin/False Advertising/Unfair Competition in Violation of 15 U.S.C. §1125(a)
- Count Five: Federal Trademark Dilution in Violation of 15 U.S.C. § 1125(c)
- Count Six: Common Law Trademark Infringement
- Count Seven: Common Law Unfair Competition
- Count Eight: Violation of Michigan Consumer Protection Act (MCL§§ 445.901 – 445.902; § 445.903)
- Count Nine: Violation of Michigan Trademark Act (MCL §§ 429.31 – 429.36; § 429.42)
- Count Ten: Common Law Tortious Interference
- Count Eleven: Common Law Civil Conspiracy
- Count Twelve: Respondeat Superior
- Count Thirteen: Abuse of Process
- Count Fourteen: Frivolous Lawsuit
In all, we presented hundreds of pages in our exhibits that included a variety of topics such as Black Hat SEO techniques and content spinning allegedly used by Sterling’s agent Youssef (aka “Khidma”) to promote Sterling’s lucrative dinar sales business. For example, websites mentioned in Exhibit A page 13; another example of content spinning can be found in an article published by a user named Ty Rhame on scribd.
Sterling Currency Group answered the counterclaim denying all liability.
Toward the end, I emailed Tyson Rhame trying to explain what was in the exhibits but Rhame responded with threats of financial ruin for the rest of my life and stated he never read a word of the lawsuit and never will. I sent him another email expressing my concern about the threats and received an offer to settle; the case was settled shortly after.
This is a relationship diagram to help you understand the companies mentioned in the lawsuit.
And this is Page 2 of Exhibit A showing the people involved in each company mentioned in the lawsuit. Listed are Tyson Allen Rhame, James Shaw, David M Lilenfeld, Youssef El Hodaigui and Frank Bell.
Timeline of Events and Lawsuit
“Khidma” is an online alias used by Sterling’s marketing agent Youssef El Hodaigui.
Sterling’s attempt to buy IraqiDinar.org:
Sterling Currency Group tried to buy this website in 2009 but Sterling’s marketing agent (Stefano Grossi) was turned away. Then, in 2011, Grossi again offered to buy my website, this time for a million dollars and claimed more could be made per month selling Dinar. For reasons I’ll explain later, the offer was refused.
In 2011, my copyrighted images were taken without permission and used on websites registered by Sterling’s marketing agent Youssef El Hodaigui’s (aka “Khidma”). These images were surrounded by webspam and used to promote Sterling Currency Group, Youssef’s employer.
A year later attorney David Lilenfeld (Lilenfeldpc – Georgia Bar No: 452399) called my wife explaining that he needed to talk with me and that it was nothing to worry about. As we stated in our Abusive Litigation Letter to David Lilenfeld:
Mr. Maurer called you back and answered your questions about whether he had ever bought currency from Sterling (no), whether he worked for Mr. Grossi (no), and whether he had posted bad links (no). When speaking with Mr. Maurer, you also told him that he “needed to come clean” or else a lawsuit will be filed. We know, of course, that your threat was fulfilled in that the Lawsuit was subsequently filed. And you told Ms. Walsh, when you spoke by phone with her on October 24, 2012, that “unless your client cooperates,“ there will be trouble with his employer. These threats were not well received by Mr. Maurer or Ms. Walsh, and to me, they are highly unprofessional. If my clients have to proceed with claims for abusive litigation, these threats will be relevant as to Sterling’s vexatious intentions with the Lawsuit.
My attorney advised that a settlement (fair or not) may be better than a costly and emotional court battle (although Jim’s a tough trial attorney, he also believes in presenting you with all the options). Looking back, I’m glad I didn’t cave in to the pressure! Had a settlement agreement been reached in Georgia, I would not have discovered those images infringed upon by Sterling’s agent Youssef, the elaborate network of webspam, Black Hat forum discussions and other material that formed the basis of my counterclaims.
In my letter to Tyson Rhame shown in Exhibit A Page 2, I refer to a request made by Lilenfeld. That request prompted us to analyze Sterling Currency Group’s online operation which eventually led to us filing exhibits containing hundreds of pages in the 14 count counter complaint against Sterling for $20 million dollars. Excerpt of our allegations presented to the Court from our Counter Lawsuit, page 30 of 72 shown below:
24. The evidence reveals that Sterling Currency Group, and its principals, employees, officers, managers, members, directors, owners, agents or associates utilize and benefit from unethical and unfair trade practices delineated in Exhibits A- K, such as: Webspam; tier networks; false advertising; deceptive and misleading statements; fake websites, review sites social profiles of endorsers, and endorsements; stealing and spinning the content of others; stealing others copyrights and trademarks; and filing frivolous and abusive lawsuits. The enormous number of bad acts prevent their enumeration. A few specific examples are referenced as follows and in the pages below:
- Webspam: e.g. Exhibit B, p. 16; Exhibit D, p. 13; Exhibit G, pp. 20, 38, 44;
- Tier networks: e.g. Exhibit A, p. 3; Exhibit D, pp. 2, 13; Exhibit J, p. 23;
- False advertising / deceptive and misleading statements: e.g. Exhibit A, pp. 10-14; Exhibit B, pp. 5-8, 12; Exhibit K, p. 18;
- Fake websites, review sites and social profiles: e.g. Exhibit A, p. 14; Exhibit B, p. 7-15; e.g. Exhibit B, pp. 30, 37, 40;
- Deceptively using agent websites to build links and promote Sterling Currency Group: e.g. Exhibit D, pp. 1, 13; Exhibit G, pp. 20, 38;
- Stealing content, copyright and trademark e.g. Exhibit B, pp. 26-27; Exhibit F; and
- Filing frivolous and abusive lawsuit to silence protected speech: e.g. Within Complaint; Exhibit B, pp. 19, 34, 43; Local Civil Rule 83; State Bar of Michigan Rules of Ethics; State Bar of Georgia Rules of Ethics.
25. The evidence reveals Sterling Currency Group and its principals, employees, officers, managers, members, directors, owners, agents or associates, utilize the same Internet marketing agent, Youssef El Hodaigui, who utilizes on their behalf, “black hat” or negative, search engine optimization techniques to promote their businesses. The evidence in the attached Exhibits of the black hat activity and unethical and unfair trade practices is overwhelming.
26. The overwhelming evidence attached shows a total disregard for the law, fair trade and commerce, the public, and the individual by Sterling and its principals, employees, officers, managers, members, directors, owners, agents or associates.
Take Exhibit A page 13 below for example, showing websites containing my copyrighted images taken without permission and used in an elaborate network of webspam to promote Sterling’s online operation. Note that all these websites, registration information and more are listed in Exhibit F Part 1,2,3,4 and 5 titled “Infringement Reports”:
In the exhibit we presented to the court above, you’ll see a number of websites. You can click on the link below to take you to the digitally preserved site where you can view materiel promoting Sterling Currency Group. You’ll also see work performed on Tyson Rhame’s Sterling Funder, Online Art Group and others.
David Lilenfeld’s connection to Sterling and Youssef El Hodaigui Discovered
Sterling Currency Group’s Attorney, David Lilenfeld, was discovered to be Sterling’s salaried employee, owner and business partner of Sterling Funder with Tyson Rhame, James Shaw, and also manager of Youssef El Hodaigui (‘Khidma’) who we claim worked at manipulating Google for James Shaw, Tyson Rhame and David Lilenfeld, such as LilenfeldPC.com,
SterlingFunder.com, OnlineArtGroup.com, SterlingCurrencyGroup.com, DinarBanker.com, FairfieldFunding.com and more. On a website about John Thomas Shaw you can see use of a hidden link by Youssef’s Web Stromz.
As you read the case, the topic of “Content Spinning” is mentioned repeatedly, an example of Content Spinning can be found in Exhibit A of the “Motion for Protective Order Preventing Sterling from deleting evidence”, page 14 of 26 (27) titled “Stolen Content from Atlanta Attorneys Used to Promote David Lilenfeld’s Atlanta Law Practice, LilenfeldPC.com“.
In Exhibit A page 9 Section V we alleged:
V. Additional evidence of Collusion / Conspiracy lies in that you, David Lilenfeld, with your employee, Youssef El Hodaigui, are stealing the copyrighted articles of other Atlanta attorneys, removing copyright ownership identification and/or credits, taking claim to their material, spinning it, and accordingly causing a reduction in their rank to boost your legal website rank, representing a pattern attributable to your employer, Sterling Currency Group.“
See our page showing a number of articles promoting LilenfeldPC.com and associated author information that led us to make these allegations to the court.
“Sterling Currency Group’s True Purpose” – Page 30
The Sterling Currency Group complaint was filed against IraqiDinar.org AFTER I rejected Sterling’s offer to buy my website and AFTER sites registered by Sterling’s agent Youssef began using my images from IraqiDinar.org for Sterling’s benefit WITHOUT my permission. Exhibits claim that David Lilenfeld gave Google a copy of the lawsuit to remove a Google penalty and restore sterlingcurrencygroup.com’s ranking. In our countersuit, on page 30 titled “Sterling Currency Group’s True Purpose in filing its Complaint against IraqiDinar.org”, it’s explained why we believe the Federal Court was used as a tool to remove a Google Penalty:
28. For years, Iraqidinar.org ‘s message was loud and clear with the website naturally ranking #1 in the search engines for the terms “IRAQI DINAR” and in 2011, the website having achieved a business value of twenty million dollars ($20,000,000.00).
29. For years, Sterling Currency Group d.b.a. dinarbanker.com / https:// sterlingcurrencygroup.com tried to beat Iraqidinar.org ‘s ranking.
30. Sterling tried to beat the rank by utilizing illegal marketing and “black hat” search engine optimization (“SEO”) efforts which did unnaturally increase their website rankings, but prevented them from rising to Iraqidinar.org ‘s #1 natural rank.
31. Unable to beat Iraqidinar.org ‘s ranking and not wanting its message to prevail, Sterling offered to purchase Iraqidinar.org, however, the offer was rejected.
32. Google was catching on to Sterling ‘s bad SEO activities and notified them of their awareness of Sterling ‘s unnatural links. Having learned about some of their black hat search engine activity, Google notified Sterling Currency Group ‘s websites that they may lose any value given to them from unnatural links. Exhibit B, pp. 38-39. See also Exhibit K, a Case Study of a company using the same practices as Sterling Currency Group and Google ‘s response.
33. Thereafter, Sterling hatched a plan to ruin Iraqidinar.org and save face with Google.
34. The overwhelming evidence uncovered to date reveals that Sterling ‘s true purpose in filing its Complaint is:
- To answer to Google with a cover up that involves intentionally and wrongfully blaming Counter-Plaintiffs for Sterling’s own violations of Google, Microsoft’s Bing, and other search engine policies for legitimately ranking in search engine results;
- As Sterling’s agent explains, he has been penalized many times in the past and needs a way to cover their tracks (Exhibit B, pp. 36-39, 42). and at the same time,
- To silence Iraqidinar.org’s warnings about buying Iraqi dinar.
- Using Counter-Plaintiffs as Sterling’s fall guy also serves to silence protected free speech including warnings about the Iraqi dinar scheme and damage Iraqidinar.org’s search engine rankings so that people searching for information about the Iraqi dinar scheme will never find it.
35. Sterling accomplished its purpose by entwining the Counter-Plaintiffs in its massive world-wide “black hat” SEO and illegal marketing scheme originated to promote its websites and to induce investor consumers to buy its Iraqi dinar.
- Sterling entwined Counter-Plaintiffs by smearing their copyrights and trademarks throughout the Internet in its world-wide, massive, and intense negative linking campaign.
- In spite of their own bad acts, Sterling Currency Group responded to Google, by pointing the blame to Counter-Plaintiffs, filing the Georgia lawsuit, and sending notice of the lawsuit to Google, which then returned Sterling’s rank and penalized the falsely accused, Iraqidinar.org, causing over twenty million dollars ($20,000,000.00) in damage.
36. Google fell for Sterling’s ruse and the Counter-Plaintiffs took the blame with Iraqidinar.org falling drastically in the search engine results such that the their message has been silenced, while Sterling maintains its illegitimate ranking.
- Sterling Currency Group now enjoys the top position for people searching for “Buy Iraqi Dinar” while Iraqidinar.org which ranked #1 for years for the term “IRAQI DINAR”, is now buried 100s of results below, effectively removing it and its important public message from the search results.
37. The hundreds of pages of evidence and the within Complaint filed by Sterling Currency Group reveal that Sterling and its principals, employees, officers, managers, members, directors, owners, agents or associates, obviously will stop at nothing to rank at the top in search engines results for their desired keywords and to continue making hundreds of millions per year (twenty million per month ($20,000,000.00) as per court transcript except, Exhibit M) off unwary investors in unregulated markets and schemes over the Internet such as Iraqi dinar sales, crowdfunding, and structured settlement buyouts.
38. Sterling Currency Group intentionally and wrongfully acted against James Maurer, Monetizers, LLC and IRAQIDINAR.ORG, to promote Sterling ‘s businesses in its scheme, including its massive world-wide internet “black hat” SEO illegal marketing to induce investor to buy their Iraqi dinar while at the same time falsely accusing Counter-Plaintiffs in order to destroy them and deflect the attention of Google, Microsoft’s Bing and other search engines away from Sterling’s own violations of search engine policies created for legitimately ranking in results.
Protective Order Preserving Evidence against SterlingOn September 18, we also filed Exhibit A Titled “Defendants / Counter – Plaintiffs’ Motion And Brief In Support Of Protective Order Preserving Evidence” over concern about items such as the one below being deleted. Sterling denied this. In our Motion we claimed that:
14. A photograph relevant to my clients’ Answer, Affirmative Defenses and Counterclaims has been deleted. A screen-shot of the webpage on which the photograph was present, was included in the Answer, Affirmative Defenses and Counterclaims (see Doc #11, Exhibit B, page 36). It is claimed that this is a photograph used to identify marketing director Youssef El Hodaigui.
In response to our claim, Sterling Currency Group filed a signed Affidavit Declaration of Youssef Hodaigui as an attachment opposing our MOTION for protective order #34. In that affidavit, Youssef swears to the court that:
I state that my last edit to this profile (including deletion of my profile photograph) was on March 17, 2012, well before this lawsuit was commenced.
This is interesting for two reasons.
- Youssef confirms his trafficplanet.com profile picture and account (see Exhibit B part1 and 2 – amazing stuff!)
- His profile picture (alias “Khidma”) was not deleted and still active as of 3/8/2013, well after the lawsuit started (which was in 2012) as the dates on the images below show.
You’ll notice that the Gravatar (which Youssef calls a profile picture) used for Sterling’s marketing agent Youssef existed in 2013 and was then removed. The Gravatar is unique and ties into Black Hat World forum discussions where methods to fool Google are discussed along with purchase and transaction ID information:
In a lawsuit against Sterling Currency Group by Dinar Corp Inc., a motion was filed to disqualify David Lilenfeld PC – see section C titled “D. Counsel’s alteration of evidence.”
What Happened when we Filed our Counter-Lawsuit against Sterling Currency Group?
Sterling Currency Group answered the counterclaim denying all liability.
“Financial Ruin for the Rest of Your Life”
I sent an email trying to reason with Tyson Rhame and get him to look at the evidence we found but his response was nothing like I expected! Rhame responded by threatening financial ruin for the rest of my life and letting me know that he didn’t read one word of the lawsuit because he just doesn’t care. (bold added for clarity)
“I didn’t read the lawsuit (not 1 page or 1 word) and won’t because I don’t care what’s in it” – Exhibit A Page 4 of 25
and then goes on to issue the threats shown below:
We know you have very few assets and we know we could drive you into financial ruin for the rest of your life. – Exhibit A Page 6 of 25
We hire lawyers to handle issues like this. If David gets overwhelmed, we’ll pass it on to King and Spalding, etc until we get the resolution we think is appropriate — David will coordinate all legal activities — he works for us fulltime on salary. – Exhibit A Page 4 of 25
It’s not a worry to us, because you will run out of resources before we do. We don’t mind coming up to your neck of the woods for court or whatever else — we’re not worried and it’s not a hardship. Lawsuits are just a normal course of business and we don’t think about them for more than a minute when we know we’re in the right and will win. – Exhibit A Page 5 of 25
we’ll hire a firm to pursue any judgment for the rest of your life bankruptcy won’t protect you —hiding assets won’t protect you. – Exhibit A Page 4 of 25
Please take a moment to read the entire email, including others sent by Rhame found in Exhibit A.
On October 18th, I responded to Rhame’s emails expressing my concerns about his threats. Rhame responded, but this time a completely different tone and willing to settle.
After a year long battle in Georgia and getting the case dismissed on jurisdiction, Sterling Currency Group tried again in Michigan. Only a few months after we filed our counterlawsuit, the case was settled on December 17th.
This is only a small part of what was presented in the lawsuits. Take time and read the court exhibits, there is a lot of information in there.
Lilenfeld P.C. Offers Me a Consulting JobIn December of 2015, after numerous threats of a lawsuit by David Lilenfeld, Lilenfeld bypassed my attorney and contacted me directly, something attorneys are not allowed to do when that person is represented by an attorney. I didn’t respond and instead, forwarded the email to my attorney who then called Lilenfeld P.C.
David Lilenfeld told my attorney that he forgot my attorney represented me; he then went on to offer me a consulting job working for Sterling Currency Group. We rejected that offer and explained that I have no interest in working for Sterling Currency Group or anyone related to the company.

39 Signs the Global Elite’s Ship is Sinking
#2: May 12th, 2015: Russia asks Greece to join the BRICS Alliance. Notice the BRICS trend in the stories to follow.
#3: May 24th, 2015: The Pentagon released documents to Judicial Watch, a government watchdog law firm, proving that the US Government played a central role in creating ISIS. Interestingly, the mainstream media failed to cover this story. A few weeks later, ex US Intelligence officials confirm the report.
#4: May 31st, 2015: Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras writes an open letter, warns European leaders they are “making a grave mistake,” and suggests they re-read Hemingways’ “For Whom The Bell Tolls”.
#5: June 2nd, 2015: The U.S. Federal Government was hacked as the personal data of 4 million current, former and prospective employees believed to have been breached. 3 weeks later FBI Director James Comey told US Senators the actual number could be 18 million. Some believe the hack was coordinated to gather further evidence of crimes by certain government officials. More on that further down.
#6: June 2nd, 2015: Kentucky Senator Rand Paul calls for the U.S. Government to declassify 28 pages in the 9/11 attack report that the Bush Administration blacked out.
#7: June 3rd, 2015: Famous musician Akon announces his Solar Academy will bring solar power to over 600 million people in Africa. A major victory for clean energy and humanity.
#8: June 4th, 2015: Whistle-blower Edward Snowden says a “profound difference” had occurred since releasing the NSA documents and that the balance of power has shifted in our world. Is he referring to the BRICS Alliance?
#9: June 5th, 2015: “There Will Be A Reset of The Financial Industry.” The International Monetary Fund says the Chinese Yuan is no longer undervalued. This sets the stage for the Yuan to be recognized as a global reserve currency, something the U.S. Dollar (which is backed by war and oil) does not like.
#10: June 7, 2015: Deutsche Bank, one of the world’s largest banks, Co-CEO’s Jain and Fitschen resign. Two days later, German prosecutors raided the Bank’s headquarters in a criminal tax-fraud probe.
#11: June 15, 2015: China says the G-7 Summit in Germany was a “gathering of debtors.” They mean this literally as the Bretton Woods western financial system is based on debt. And in fact, the entire western financial system has been running illegally and is technically bankrupt. For more on the real history of Bretton Woods and its connection to JFK, The Global Collateral Accounts and the gold standard, read here.
#12: June 17th, 2015 is quite the day with the next four stories all being reported at that time. First, JP Morgan’s number 2, the Vice Chairman Jimmy Lee, suddenly and unexpectedly passes over. Since late 2013, the list of high-level banking officials to have passed over has grown to 70. Clearly, something is happening.
#13: June 17, 2015: Russia and China announced that all natural gas and crude oil sales between the two countries will now be done in Chinese Yuan (formerly the U.S. Dollar) and will be convertible into Russian Rubles. The U.S. Dollar hegemony is waning.
#14: June 17, 2015: The State of Texas has signed a bill that calls for the repatriation of their gold from the Federal Government. When asked what would happen if the government tried to steal back the gold, State Representative Giovanni Capriglione said this: There is a motto in the office of almost every state legislator in Texas, and it’s a flag that we have [from the Texas Revolution], it’s below a cannon and what the motto says is, “Come and Take it.”
#15: June 17, 2015: Greece’s Hellenic Parliament’s Debt Truth Committee released a report stating that the debt Greece “owes” is illegal, illegitimate and odious, according to international law. Further, they stated the IMF and ECB (European Central Bank) having illegally and knowingly imposed these illegitimate debts upon Greece and other nations. A direct call out to the global banking cartel.
#16: June 18th, 2015: Baron David de Rothschild has been indicted by a French court over financial fraud. French police have been ordered by the court to track down Baron. The Rothschild family has long been viewed as the family sitting atop the global financial ponzi scheme. Lawyer Antonio Flores told reporters, “it’s a real breakthrough moment for everyone involved.”
#17: June 18, 2015: In a 2-1 ruling, the 2nd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals says Bush era officials can be held liable for detaining innocent people after the 9/11 attack. Will this lead to some major arrests?
#18: June 19, 2015: While European leaders try to save face on the debt crisis, Greek PM Alexis Tsipras was in Russia and gave a speech at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, stating that “the economic center of the planet has already shifted” and that new powers are playing an “important role on an economic and geopolitical level.” Now re-read story header number 8… BRICS, anyone? Oh, and Greece and Russia signed a €2 billion gas pipeline deal that day too, a strategic economic and geopolitical game-changer.
#19: July 5th, 2015: Greece votes “NO” to the creditors’ bailout offer. This is a massive stance for humanity that Greece just took against the banking elite. As of this writing, a “deal” has been reached but is expected to fall apart in the coming days. Kicking the can down the road does not solve the issue, but rather speeds up the revolution mindset of many frustrated Greek citizens. October is when many financial experts are saying that some fireworks are to be expected.
#21: July 8th, 2015: On this day, several strange events occurred. The NYSE was taken down for multiple hours, the Wall Street Journal was taken offline just after the stock exchange went down, United Airlines was forced to ground all of its flights nationwide due to computer “issues,” and 2,500 people losing power in Washington D.C. This whistle-blower journalist just wrote that his Pentagon sources said the Pentagon/BRICS Alliance took it down as a “dry run.”
#22: July 7th, 2015: Backing up one day we see that the hacking group Anonymous tweeted this on the evening prior to the stock exchange hack: Wonder if tomorrow is going to be bad for Wall Street… we can only hope. David Wilcock has previously written a detailed document stating that Anonymous is working with certain patriotic US Military forces to legally take down the banking elite. This aligns nicely with what the whistle-blower journalist, Benjamin Fulford, just wrote this week about the Pentagon and BRICS Alliance in the previous story.
#23: July 14th, 2015: Iran, China, Russia, France, Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. reach a historic deal on Iran’s nuclear program. Entire books could be written on the geopolitical, financial and technological implications of this move. There are also reports that the reality of this situation is that Iran has free energy technology and will be using this to help bring down the banking/political/oil industry elite. This would make sense as the strongest opponents to this deal have been Israel and its Prime Minister and several American politicians like the Bushes, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.
#24: July 15th, 2015: Santa Cruz County votes to stop doing business with 5 major banks, including JP Morgan Chase, Barclays, Citigroup, Royal Bank of Scotland and UBS. Watch this set off a chain reaction in those who will follow suit.
#25: August 11th, 2015: China (a very influential BRICS member) shocks the markets and the Wall Street banking cartel by devaluing the Yuan by 2%.
#26: August 12th, 2015: China throws a second punch and devalues the Yuan by another 1.6 %. Two explosions, which are being labeled as nuclear by some, went off in Tianjin, China just 1 day after the bold currency move. As of this writing, 4 explosions have taken place and are suspected as retaliation against the Chinese by the Wall Street banking cartel.
#27: August 13th, 2015: China devalues the Yuan for the 3rd consecutive day, down a total of 4.65%. As one financial expert wrote, this was “the haymaker.” In layman’s terms, China erased almost 5 years worth of “controlled appreciations” in 3 days. Thus, China (and the BRICS Alliance) just told Wall Street and Washington D.C./London, “we are in full control here and you will play ball by the rules.”
#28: August 14th, 2015: China once again shocked the world by announcing an updated total of the gold reserves, just 29 days after their last update. In the past, they have updated their reserve total only every 5 or 6 years. Clearly, a transition to the gold standard is at hand. This is the last thing the fiat-based U.S. Dollar and central banking cabal wants and can afford.
#29: August 24th, 2015: David Wilcock releases a new update stating that his inside sources are telling him the geopolitical situation playing out between the banking cabal and the BRICS alliance is reaching a crescendo.
#30: August 28th, 2015: North Korea and South Korea agree to hold peace talks as North Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un said the agreement is a “landmark occasion” in the road to “reconciliation” and “trust.” Is the banking cabal’s influence over South Korea being dismantled? Its well known they have long controlled South Korea and have infiltrated their governance as a means to keep the two Koreas divided. Secondly, the more that unity and peace spreads, the quicker the cabal falls…and they know this.
#31: August 31st, 2015: In an article that I highly recommend, the author perfectly describes what China, Russia and the BRICS alliance are doing to the U.S. Dollar and thus to the banking cabal by China dumping billions of Dollars worth of U.S. Treasuries. I’ll leave you with this quote from the article: “China, Russia and much of the international community is signaling that they’re prepared and strapped in… they’re in the cockpit, and have punched their ‘hyper-drive.’ De-dollarization will quicken to warp speed. Eurasia is ready for this rocket ride to begin… and to benefit, on their balance sheets, from the gold (and silver) revaluations shortly to take place.”
#32: September 1st, 2015: Vladamir Putin drafts a bill aimed at eliminating, yes eliminating, the U.S. Dollar and Euro from trade between CIS countries, which includes Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and other countries of the former Soviet Union.
#33: September 3rd, 2015: Guatemala erupts in protests calling for the resignation of their President. He does resign and is jailed in connection to a corruption scandal.
#34: September 3rd, 2015: 34 Senators have committed to support the Iran nuclear deal, which again, is a huge blow to the cabal’s plans. In addition, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman visited Washington over the weekend and has given support to the deal as well. Saudi Arabia, who was once a strong ally to the Bush/Clinton/Israeli syndicate, has essentially turned its back on them.
#35: September 3rd, 2015: The Japan Bank for International Cooperation announced that it is in the process of turning to currency swaps in rubles (and NOT U.S. Dollars) with several large Russian banks. Remember that Japan was of the two (the U.S. was the other) notable nations that did not join the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank in late June. It seems as though major regime changes are taking place behind closed doors in Japan. Stay tuned.
#36: September 5th, 2015: The BRICS $100 billion monetary fund is now operational.
#37: September 6th, 2015: Over 105,000 people, including union leaders and Labour Members of Parliament, have signed the petition to arrest Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for war crimes. Since the petition has reached over 100,000 signatures, the British Parliament must officially consider a debate on the situation.
#38: September 6th, 2015: Neil Keenan released a new update regarding the global collateral accounts and the stage of the game he and his team are at in legally bringing down multiple very large banks and bankers. For those that don’t know, the global collateral accounts are the single largest financial cover-up in the world to date and have been illegally used and abused by many different banking institutions, governments and corporations. These accounts have strong ties to the assassination of JFK and to 9/11. I cannot over-emphasize the importance of learning about the global collateral accounts and passing that information on to others. Neil has said that it is expected to be around and possibly before January 2016 that very large fireworks (a positive for humanity) take place involving, all the big banks and several governments and corporations. The wait is coming to an end.
#39: Now: You are here on the planet at this time to make a wonderful contribution. Please continue playing your role for the benefit of us all.
