Welcome to the Ad Surf Daily Remission Website
Update 12/16/2013: At this time we are no longer accepting Petition for Remission Forms. Final Petitions are under review and there will be no other distributions mailed out after this upcoming distribution.
Update: In early November, Gilardi & Co. LLC, the Ad Surf Daily Remission
Administrator, will begin issuing checks to approved petitioners. The check amounts
will vary depending upon your loss. You do not need to validate the authenticity
of the check.
Update: On October 2, 2013 Notices of Decision - Petition Denial letters
were mailed to those who have been denied. If you received a Petition Denial letter
and have any evidence not previously submitted that may constitute a basis upon
which the Department of Justice may reconsider its denial for your Petition, you
may submit a Request for Reconsideration of the determination by sending a statement
in writing clearly setting forth the reason(s) that you believe the determination
to be incorrect and including copies of all relevant documentation not previously
provided to support your statement. Requests for Reconsideration must be submitted
on or before October 22, 2013. The petitioners who were approved will be receiving
a letter along with a check for their granted amount in the coming month.
This website has been established by the United States Department of Justice to
assist victims of the Ad Surf Daily Autosurf Ponzi schemes. The website provides
general information regarding the Remission Fund and related federal criminal and
civil court cases. Compensation may be available to verified victims who did not
participate in the previous remission process.
In the summer of 2008, the U.S. Secret Service conducted an investigation of certain
"auto-surf" fraudulent Internet programs and discovered that they were actually
"Ponzi" or "pyramid" schemes. Ad Surf Daily, ASD Cash Generator, La Fuente Dinero,
and Golden Panda were "auto-surf" programs that promised participants high returns
on their membership fees if they viewed Internet advertisements and referred others
to join the programs.
The U.S. Government seized money from several bank accounts associated with the
schemes. The U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia obtained civil forfeiture
judgments against this money, which means that a court declared the money to be
the property of the U.S. Government.
