This guy is a crook. He got off with his previous devious company rumor search but now they got him.

Shaun, obviously you don't know Jeremy Johnson. This guy does more good in the world in one day than you will in your life time. Take it easy skippy you will be ok.

@justafan - it appears that Shaun's "philanthropic" activities came from defrauding others. The method of this fraud? He billed hundreds of thousands of consumers for products they never ordered.

Are you saying the ends justify the means?

So... Why are we still calling him a philanthropist?

All those who accepted his money will likely have to return it, as it appears it wasnt his in the first place.

Can someone enlighten me?

Re justafan

So let me get this straight.. Jeremy Steels 100 million from the poor, then gives back 1 million to the poor.. We call him generous.

Is it a good deal for the poor?

How anyone can defend this gluttonous man is beyond me.

@justafan....it's easy to do good....when you're using someone else's money.

that got you guys going. There is no such thing as a free lunch. His internet/telemarketing/info commercial businesses gave people a Free sample of a product/service for 30 days. After the 30 days they were billed for the product/service each month from then on tell they canceled. Some advice, never give a business your credit card number if its free. All i am saying is people tried to get something for nothing and when they didn't cancel the got billed. There are hundreds of other businesses doing the same thing. I am not saying its right. I am saying Jeremy has done a tremendous amount of good with his money.
