All told, through the first six months of 1999, the company hadn't recorded a dime in revenue and reported a loss of $20 million, including $12 million in salaries and "programming costs." Losing money is hardly unusual for Internet start-ups. But while most spend the bulk of their money on marketing and scrimp on salaries and content, DEN was doing the opposite.

I can't imagine what Brock Pierce will do once he has access to $750,000,000 USD. My first guess is he'll have KnC rent another helicopter hanger and fire up 7,000+ Neptunes.

According to a company filing with the SEC last fall, David Neuman, recruited from Disney to become DEN's president, was paid an annual salary of $1.5 million. Gersh and John Silva, music industry executives brought in to start a record label, were each paid $600,000. The company's head of marketing was paid $1 million and its chief financial officer $400,000.

Even Brock Pierce, then 18, was paid $250,000, more than most full-fledged Internet chief executives earn. Pierce and Shackley both took executive vice president titles.

The limo was nothing special.

In 1984, Collins-Rector and an Orange County businessman named Stephen Fryer founded an Irvine-based company called World TravelNet that electronically coordinated tours and cruises. Its affiliate, World ComNet, sold shares on the Vancouver stock exchange in 1987. The value of the company peaked at about $100 million before it ran into sharp competition from the airline industry and eventually filed for bankruptcy.

"It was so close," Fryer said. "We just ran out of money."

We're not gone, nor moving out right away. We're not running away with anyone's payment either. We've said numerous times that we're working on a upgrade/refund options for all of our clients, as such it requires a complete audit of the company's finances (needed for discovery during the litigation's investigative process anyway) and we're also restructuring of our current business model all together, gearing up to offer hosting as well hardware soon.

We have also been looking at a more adequate facility in Jenkintown and will probably be moving there within the next month. As we have subcontracted SMD services we've also used their facilities as well as other temporary rented facilities for assembly. We feel it's smarter to take a location where assembly and administrative operations can coexist and we're in the process of setting that up now. Also, due to numerous calls from random people asking if we are legitimate, if we exist, if we're a scam, and calls basically bothering the crap out of our neighbors, our landlord has asked to find another place of operations as well. So again thanks to all the wonderful investigative souls on this thread that helped facilitate that one.



Wow!!!!!!! This Joshua Zipkin dude has totally lost his fuckin' mind! I'm pretty sure that BFL's landlord, of which is in the same building, received a 100 Xs the calls, and they didn't have to move.

Dr.: So, Mr. Zipkin, what seems to be the problem with your libido this week?
JZ: Due to numerous calls from random people asking if AMT is legitimate, if it exist, if it's a scam, and calls basically bothering the crap out of my neighbors, I can't seem to get my dick hard to jack off as much as I used to, doc.
Dr.: Here's a prescription.
JZ: Thanks, doc! You're the bestest. FedEx me the bill.

BTW, anybody interested in learning the name of the bank AMT uses in Jenkintown so that too can be shut down due to numberous calls... At least the new facility would be closer to Josh's home, thus putting lesser miles on his mobile office.

Dr.: By the way, Josh, did you see the doctor I recommended to you during your last visit to see what he can do for your problem in referring to yourself in the third person?
JZ: I'll make sure he gets the message, doc.

For early financing, majority owner and chairman Collins-Rector turned to high-profile individuals he had come to know in Hollywood, including television actor Fred Savage. Former U.S. Rep. Michael Huffington said he invested $5 million.

Huffington later complained that he was led to believe major companies were investing at the same time he was, and on the same terms--which wasn't true. He also said Collins-Rector traded on his name, describing Huffington as vice chairman although he held no such position.

Soon Collins-Rector was jetting across the country for meetings with much bigger players in the worlds of technology and venture capital.

He was smooth in pitch meetings, using a laptop computer to show investors how DEN would transform not only Internet entertainment, but also advertising and e-commerce. One CD-ROM demonstration showed how users would be able to stop a show in freeze frame, then click on an actor's shirt to buy one like it. The technology never appeared on the actual Web site, but investors were impressed nonetheless.

So, what you're saying is that the following depicting Paymium's financials is inaccurate?
Not really - it's just irrelevant if you want to know Bitcoin-Central has enough reserves in both bitcoins and euros. Paymium could be bankrupt, but still close Bitcoin-Central properly and refund all its users (or not, if they don't have the reserves).

For euros, look at Lemon Way, and for bitcoins... no way to know for now.

And since the only information is from 2012 and only has percentages... I'm not sure what you can even think of the state of Paymium. Many French companies don't send their financials, or somehow Societe.com (which isn't an official government website) doesn't have them.

1132 stolen Huh??
I have read through a few threads now. OP can't prove he sent Huh

The following are the two URLs I was able to use prior to the "hack":

https://www.instawallet.org/w/rL2DhMWW9tDvs24oFwtiq99zhh7A3ii6bg
https://www.instawallet.org/w/gZh1afVVl5aAtjNwXo0BiYChTxjwln33ab

The following is the one that was returned to me:

https://www.instawallet.org/w/sMceOus2wYrDVAHxA5BssBwB7kgDqC9r4Q (no idea who placed the other two claims on this wallet, but am assuming davout did such to delay my attempts as long as possible)

All three would have had the same IP addresses attached to them of which davout was well aware prior to the "hack", then he disappeared for almost four weeks, returning to this forum on April 18, 2013.

I made it clear from the very beginning on the IW claims thread that the wallet addresses were no longer included in the generated pages. At the first opportunity I was able to do such, I filled out three claims on the forms provided at the time. Even though I never received an email, I heeded the warnings expressed by Boussac, et al. to not resubmit multiple claims, so I didn't do such till Oct/Nov/Dec of last year. Via email, davout claimed that no claims were on file, thus denying my claims, but later changed his tune when he realized that I had overwhelming proof of the smaller claim, for he personally commented on that particular wallet just prior to the "hack".

Sans money laundering and thief, there is no way in hell davout could have amassed 1,384.35491053 BTC as seen here https://blockchain.info/address/16d1yGrEDqSY1xhCnAUWrkahGY2mkWdAYk, especially when he was crying like a baby on this forum because he was conducting the InstaWallet investigation and claims process sans pay.

My grave concerns about InstaWallet prior to the hack was laid to rest by staff member davout, albeit I had intentions of moving my bitcoins from said site, but was delayed due to spending my time with posting about BFL, then on that betsofbitcoin April fools bet. When I finally became aware of the IW "hack", I became one of the loudest voices due to my potential lost, of which Boussac was kind enough to put me immediately on ignore.

<while hunting down a certain post by Boussac having him penning the word ignore, I just found the following thread for the very first time>

I personnally tested my urls on the claim form and it worked.
If you are getting a 404 error it could be that your url is made up.
All instawallet urls that have received transactions are in the database.

Boussac (Pierre) you come back after ignoring questions and the first thing you say to a guy who has lost a shedload if coins is that maybe his URL is made up.

Way to go mate. Good job.


I am not ignoring questions steelboy I am ignoring people who threaten or insult me here or via PM (they are going on my ignore list).

There were three millions wallets created on instawallet.org: how could I possibly answer to everyone ?
The reason we set up an online claim process is precisely because we cannot deal with each and every user by email, post or PM.
Had I started using other means than an online form, I would have been swamped.

I will nonetheless make sure their claims are processed fairly if they come up with a valid url.

May be I did come across it before, because I recall that 3M figure I sometimes refer to. There also was a 21K funded wallets reference, of which less than a 1K have been returned to date.

I posted the quote above to show only one example of how Boussac uses the ignore option, a feat not available much to davout considering that he's staff, thus making Boussac the logical choice to start and maintain the InstaWallet claims thread that he has so kindly locked now.

Would you like to see the list of names of those who combine invested $88M USD to DEN so that they could film a single $45,000 USD budgeted pilot episode depicting the true life story of luring underage boys to fuck up the ass while under the influence of drugs and alcohol and with weapons held on them produced by Brock Pierce?

If yes, it's only 28 pages long and can be seen here: http://amradaronline.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/deninvestorlist-wmbbb.pdf

To this day they're still trying to figure out what the other $87M+ USD was spent on, but they have a clue it involves entertaining other underage boys in exchange (nice word) for sex.

FYI, Brock Pierce is a Life Member of Bitcoin Foundation of which KnC just paid $100K USD to become a Platinum Member, not there's any connection. I'm just saying!  Roll Eyes

I'm taking the liberty to migrate a post from another thread to this one to bring further awareness as to what's at stake.

Are you Sunlot supporters dense? Did you people lose IQ to transaction malleability? Are you SO dumb you let yourself get sweet talked by John Betts (who, by the way, talks like a politician: in circles without answering the question)?

Let's get some quick facts out of the way:

1. Scamlot are insiders
Yeah, that's right. They've been trying to pull this shit off from the start, way back in Feburary. They are in the know. They know more than we do, and they know how to take advantage of this. If they know where the coins are, they take the 10%, for sure.

2. Scamlot are liars
They promised to invest their own money and they promised to not touch customer funds. Where's that promise now?

Did you hear? They claim to have had 70% of creditor support! How is that even possible? It's not, that's why they changed it to 40%. And this much only because you're unknowingly being represented in class action groups who are sipping wine and colluding behind our backs. Think about it, mtgoxrecovery.com which has been up since the start only barely has 30% representation.

3. Scamlot have NO STAKE in mtgox
These people have no coins in mtgox. These people are not putting upfront money to restart mtgox. From their actions they do not give a shit about bitcoin, the community, and even less the former users of mtgox. They are paying 1btc to buy out the 200k btc so they can squeeze us for what's left. They have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

Add on to that the excessive fearmongering "liquidation will only give you 3%!!!" (bullshit), "the courts, supervisor, and police are trying to screw you over!!!(sic)" (bullshit), and you get the picture.

4. If they fail, you get NOTHING left
Scamlot is a company in Cyprus. There is nothing, absolutely NOTHING, we can do to prevent them from having an "accident", losing all the coins, and declaring bankruptcy in Cyprus. What? You want your coins back? From a liquidation? In Cyprus? LOL

Bottom Line: Scamlot is trying to take YOUR MONEY

Yeah that's right, that 10 million dollars? They get that off the bat, for doing an audit. Ten Million Dollars for a fucking audit. Any sane person will tell you that is theft.

But oh-my-god what if they find coins?!?!?!

Ok, listen up you retarded little shits, because I'm not going to repeat myself. There's only two possible outcomes.

1. They don't find the coins Well trolofuckinglol, we just paid them 10m for someone to tell us there are no coins left. We already knew that, but we're going to pay someone 10 million dollars to tell us again, in case reality isn't sinking in. It doesn't even take 10 million to liquidate the company.

2. They find the coins So after extorting us for 10 million, they get a 10% cut of whatever they find. That's a maximum of 65k btc, or 30 million. Oh, and they get 84% of the company in the end. Oh, and our debt is converted into fiat at a fixed rate of $450, and we get payed back in fiat, not bitcoin.

In the meanwhile, our funds are held hostage for over a year, and we get a pitiful 16% of a stinkhole they show no signs of supporting.
And you know what? These people are insiders, liars, and vultures, they know how this will end, it's just a matter of how much they profiteer out of this.

ScamGox 2014 Thanks but no thanks, I've been goxxed enough. I'll take liquidation over this mockery.

DOT-COM PERVERTS

By BEN SILVERMAN

June 10, 2002 -- DotcomScoop.com

THESE guys would make even R. Kelly blush.

Marc Collins-Rector, Chad Shackley and Brock Pierce, the disgraced co-founders of Digital Entertainment Network (DEN.net), have been arrested in the Spanish resort town of Marbella, The Post has learned.

Collins-Rector had been indicted by the U.S. District Attorney in Newark in August 2000 on five counts of transporting a minor across state lines for the purpose of engaging in sex.

Shackley and Pierce were arrested when a warrant on Collins-Rector was served, said a Spanish law enforcement official. The source, and U.S. law enforcement officials who confirmed the arrests, said charges relate to child pornography found where the two were living.

"Enormous amounts of child porn" were found in the house, the Spanish law enforcement source said.

Michael Drewniak, a spokesperson for the Newark District Attorney's office, said papers for Collins-Rector's extradition are being prepared. Each charge against him carries a maximum prison sentence of fifteen years.

Pierce is a former actor who starred in Disney movies such as "The Mighty Ducks" and "Little Big League" in the early '90s.

The men have been sued in the past for allegedly raping, drugging and threatening to kill teenage boys while they still ran the now-defunct DEN.net.

"We knew for some time that [Collins-Rector] was essentially in the wind and we will be happy to have him back, thanks to the Spanish authorities," Drewniak told The Post.

Representatives of the National Police in Spain, the FBI-type organization that arrested the trio, declined comment.

New lawyers for the three could not be found. A lawyer who did some work for Collins-Rector said he was unaware of the trio's arrest, and a civil lawyer who represented the three in lawsuits said he has not had contact with his former clients in more than a year. He said he was "shocked" by the arrests.

The FBI would not confirm that Collins-Rector, Shackley, Pierce or DEN.net have ever been the subject of an investigation. But press reports indicate the FBI has been investigating the trio since late 1999. Sources said their arrest has reopened the investigation.

Published reports indicate that the FBI has been tailing the trio for some time, but their whereabouts has been thought to be anywhere from Florida to Thailand.

As recently as December 2001, a Web site for a murky Internet company based in the Caribbean but with offices in London listed Collins-Rectors and Shackley as founders. The Web site has since disappeared. The three were running at least one Internet-based business at the time of the arrests, said a source in Spain.

This twist could be DEN.net's final chapter.

A one-time high-flying Internet company that tried to capitalize on the growing broadband entertainment market, DEN.net fell to earth just weeks before a scheduled $75 million initial public offering in late 1999. That's when a New Jersey youth sued Collins-Rector, claiming he had been seduced by him while working for Concentric Networks, a network services company that Collins-Rector founded and later sold to XO Communications.

The news sent a shock wave through DEN.net. Collins-Rector, who was indicted, Shackley and Pierce resigned and then fled the country following reports of a possible FBI inquiry.

Press reports indicate the three had lived in an Encino mansion and turned it into a sex den. Ex-employees of the company deny knowing what they were up to but told The Post they felt something "wrong was going on."

A lawsuit brought by three young men resulted in a $4.5 million default judgment against Collins-Rector, Shackley and Pierce. Another lawsuit filed against the three, the company and other directors was settled for an undisclosed sum late last year, according to Brian Brandt, the lawyer for that minor. The lawsuits claim the men raped, drugged and threatened to kill the youths, some of whom were on DEN.net's payroll.

"We were really interested in finding these guys so they could face justice for what they've done," Brandt told The Post.

"The survival of MtGox can send a powerful message to the broader public and regulators." (savegox.com)

Is ironic the right word?
How ironic is it that the powerful message they want to send is "MtGox is run by a child rapist"?
Oh wait look at this.........

Here is something I didn't notice before:
"We are prepared to invest heavily in this business once we have conducted a full accounting of MtGox's assets and legal liabilities. When MtGox was hacked, customer balances potentially were altered, resulting in the deficits that forced the exchange to shut down. Until a qualified audit has been undertaken by a suitable internationally recognized auditor, the size of those liabilities will remain unknown."  

I smell made up BS, but it's still interesting to think the hackers simply added 650,000 BTC to selected accounts.
LOL...??

Bitcoin entities aside, I'm hard-pressed to find a flourishing company that Brock Pierce invested in. In fact, I'm in the process of compiling a list accompanied with a where-are-they-now?, for all I've seen to date is 100's of millions of dollars...

I guess it's pretty difficult to fuck up grammar-wise when one only pens two sentences per post. Not sayin' that that's a bad thing.  Wink

Brock Pierce is a serial entrepreneur who is widely recognized as a market innovator — particularly for his ground-breaking work at the nexus of entertainment, marketing and digital culture. He is renowned for pioneering the market for virtual goods in video games and on social networks, and for changing the way video is distributed.

Currently Pierce is Co-Founder, Chairman and President of Revenue APEX.

Other recent start-ups include: AdRadian, a full service affiliate network and performance based direct response agency; EverTune, a proprietary technology which keeps any stringed instrument in tune for the life of the string by utilizing a unique spring system to maintain constant tension; Taste Media, a knowledge-network connecting expert influencers with passionate consumers of wine and spirits; Borough Six, an Internet based direct marketing company similar to Guthy Renker.

Prior to his most recent ventures, Pierce is credited with the evolution and global consolidation of the virtual assets marketplace and media sector for the online gaming industry. Pierce's Affinity Media is the largest provider of virtual asset trading services, digital gaming content and community services for the world's 45 million gamers. Pierce founded Affinity Media (originally Internet Gaming Entertainment) in 2001, raising over $100 Million from blue chip investors such as Goldman Sachs and Oak Investment Partners. During his tenure as CEO from 2001 to 2007, he managed the acquisition of over 20 companies globally and established operations in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Seoul and the United States — with over 600 employees. Affinity is still the market leader in the sector and Pierce currently serves as an advisor and Vice-Chairman of the Board.

Prior to founding Affinity Media, Pierce was among a handful of industry pioneers to recognize and harness the potential represented by the convergence of entertainment, media and immersive online games - founding one of the first businesses to successfully link virtual world economies with real ones in 1997. At the same time, while attending the University of Southern California's film school, he co-founded Digital Entertainment Network (DEN), a company focused on the delivery of entertainment over broadband. DEN raised more than $88 million from investors such as Microsoft, Intel and NBC.

Pierce is an active angel investor and a member of the Tech Coast Angels. On the philanthropic front, he is an active supporter of non-profit and advocacy organizations and is a member of the Clinton Global Initiative. Both Wired and Fortune Magazine have written exposés on Pierce. He has also been a lecturer at Stanford and USC.
