ABC 4 in Salt Lake City reported yesterday that 12 Daily Pro – the now infamous Ponzi scheme – is finally closing its doors – for good.
Ever since their payment system – StormPay – froze roughly $50 million in payments Charis Johnson has been defending the site’s legitimacy. The illegal Ponzi scheme has been an interesting phenomenon due to the strong religion affiliations with the site. Most of the members are very religious – something Charis Johnson used to her advantage. These faithful members have also zealously defended their leader – almost to the point of looking like a prophet’s disciples. Unfortunately for Charis, however, the FBI, local authorities, the consumers affairs office, the SEC, and others have gotten involved and her sick game is coming to an end – but not without ruining thousands of lives of her faithful.
As I’ve followed 12 Daily Pro over the past few weeks, it has been sad to see the members of the site so confused and almost “brainwashed.” They refuse to believe that their fearless leader could be anything but perfect. In fact, Charis recently posted a link in the 12 Daily Pro forums to a new site that will contain news about new sites she is planning to open. New sites? How many people does she need to scam? The saddest part, however, is the reaction from here members. For example:
I knew it 12 daily pro will be sacrificed in order for us to get our refunds.
So a new website will see the light Grin … but the name of 12 daily pro and Charis shall remain in our thoughts and everyone’s thought…
Like I’ve said before a true act of heroism from Charis that I will NEVER forget
Same here. Count me in too. I knew right away as soon as I joined 12DP that Charis is a great and honorable leader. No matter what business you start you will always have our trust Chief and I will join you in new business adventure.
God Bless You My Friend.
PS: Please take some rest. You really need one.
I so respect everything you have done, and we will follow you anywhere. Someday we will all see the truth in what this lesson has taught us, and we will have built an unshakable foundation for the world to see. You are one awesome lady!
After reading some of these responses I’m left speechless. The only word that comes to mind is “Lemming.” Or maybe the Pied Piper. Or maybe cult? These people are blindly following a fraudster right into another trap. It’s so sad…
UPDATE: Charis seems to be at it again – teasing her followers with promises of a new scam program. Unfortunately she’s breaking her court order just talking about it. Read the entire story here.
