Update 8/8/06:The receiver Thomas F. Lennon posted a 1 page letter updating the situation on July 17 2006. You can find that letter here (PDF file).
If you are a victim of 12 Daily Pro you need to know this. 12Daily Pro and Lifeclicks (the company behind it, run by Charis Johnson) were placed under the control of Thomas F. Lennon, a United States District Court appointed Receiver, at the request of the Securities and Exchange Commission, on March 1, 2006. On March 27 2006, the SEC appointed receiver made an announcement:
Court Modifies Permanent Injunction: 12Daily Pro investors are not prohibited from exercising rights provided under credit card agreements with respect to charges directed to 12Daily Pro.
This means you can call your credit card company and request a “charge back” and there’s a chance you might get some money back. People that used debit cards are not so lucky--you can NOT request a charge back on an ATM/debit card.
12 Daily Pro victims, here’s what you can do:
- Contact the Thomas F. Lennon, Inc., the Receiver. Questions should be sent in written form by e-mail to email@example.com or by facsimile to (619) 465-9288. You may also record your message at (619) 464-6691. To learn more go to the special website.
- You should also file a complaint with the FBI at www.ic3.gov.
- Consider calling your credit card company and ask for a charge back for any charges that are fraudulent related to 12 Daily Pro (or via StormPay).
That is everything that we know at this time. (See updates at top of this post.)
