(This is the header from my old blog. Three of the men shown above are in prison, one died in prison, and another has been indicted. Dinar Daddy was shut down, and Jack DeAngelis, Hammerman, Gankans, and JohnnyWG all vanished. Dinar Vets lost 75% of its traffic, and Breitling went from doing one or two videos a day to one or two a month. You can read my old posts in “Sam I Am” Archives.)
Through the three years of that blog, over 900,000 page views were recorded as tens of thousands of people came looking for information about who these gurus were and what the truth was about the Iraqi dinar. I was able to reveal the true identities of many of the gurus/pumpers, provide some backgrounds, and expose the dinar community to information that they weren’t going to see on dinar sites sponsored by dinar dealers.
My search engine ranking was top notch, and you couldn’t type in the name of a guru or dinar dealer without something from my blog popping up on the first page. That drove the scammers crazy, and they started threatening me in an effort to make me go away. In December of 2013 my blog averaged 1500 page views a day.
Now it’s September 23, 2016. Five years after I began this adventure I’ve seen dinar dealers shut down and indicted, dinar pumpers indicted and convicted, and tens of thousands of people drop out of the dinar investment scam as the blinders were removed from their eyes. But the work goes on. There are still people out there buying into trusts being offered by scammers who say you need a trust before the dinar is revalued to avoid a substantial capital gains tax. There are still people putting together fraudulent private exchanges with the obligatory NDA (non-disclosure agreement) where the victim is left with nothing more than a fancy IOU. There are still people out there saying that the Zimbabwe dollar is going to be revalued a year after it was completely demonetized. And there are still scammers promoting the asinine idea of a global currency reset where the dollar will collapse and be replaced as the international reserve currency, the Federal Reserve will be dismantled and all Federal Reserve notes will be replaced by Treasury Reserve notes backed by gold, and the world will return to asset backed currencies which will produce unprecedented returns on the dinar, dong, rupiah …. etc.
Marcus and I joined forces at the beginning of this year and began doing podcasts and producing YouTube videos to inform the dinar community about these scams, and we’re seeing results. Our blog traffic has doubled and our YouTube channel is approaching 200 subscribers. Thanks to our readers for your support and participation over the years. Hopefully we’ll see this thing come to an end in 2017 and our services will no longer be required, but in all likelihood we’ll be around awhile because the scammers are always among us.
