The following websites has been taken down

sderclub dot com
staples.brinkster dot net
ccccpn dot com
e-junkie dot com marketplace for staples coupon
urlhasbeenblocked dot com (says maintenance) staples ez coupon

YEAY! no more rewards stealing!!
NO!.. but no more coupons.

AS mathfaster pointed out, this is all true. and they actually SEIZED the websites above.

This domain name has been seized by ICE - Homeland Security Investigations, pursuant to a seizure warrant isseud by a United States District Court orer under the authority of 18 U.S.C 981. Wire Fraud and Money Launering are federal crimes that carry penalties for offenders of up to twenty years in federal prison, a fine, forfeiture and restitution (Title 18, United States Code, Section 1343 an 1956(a)(2)(A)).

THIS IS THE ONLY TIME I MIGHT EVER SAY THIS!!!! DON'T BOTHER READING THE THREAD!!! Yes, the take downs were done by ICE, that's real someone else can post the links in the Wiki.

The 1st part of thread is mostly is it real & what now.
Middle is a support group & mourning the loss of all the PM & Coupon deals.
The last is a 4 way cat fight. Per usual no, one changed there mind, everyone is right & the other people are wrong & morals are in the Eye of the beholder.
Opinions are like A.H.s everyones got one... etc. There saved you 11 pages. hugWink Grouphug

It has become clear without question the sites selling Staples coupons and rewards were being stolen from legitimate Staples Customers. The person or persons operating the sites are based in China, and were shut down because they were breaking U.S law. The Chinese government continues to resist cooperating or assist in the prosecution of it's citizen stealing intellectual property rights from U.S. businesses and stealing from individual consumers

Each person has to decide if it's acceptable to them to buy stolen coupon codes and reward checks that belong to another person.

Is there any way to actually tell if DHS actually seized these domain names? I googled but did not see any press regarding these takedowns. Doesn't mean it isn't so. Maybe this is just all one big scam to steal the balances.Big Grin

BTW, other Staples coupon sites are still active.

The sister site (4c) is still up. Good for Staples for finally doing something, although as you mention, the scammer may just be keeping all the money deposited as it is now more difficult to generate rewards and/ or coupons.

that is true although I can't imagine why they would steal the balances when they can keep making money.

I thought of that as well. Maybe just some Chinese student who has now finished college and decides to shut it down with one last scam as the writing is on the wall.

Running off with the money makes sense given that there was a fire sale on the coupons this last week. I just put $20 in too, so I'm a sad panda.

Should people who got coupons from that site worry about legal repercussions?

Obviously the take-down is a scam! It is not within jurisdiction of Home Land Security to deal with such matter. That picture on the site with the badge does not look funny to your guys???? Give me break!

SDER just closed the door itself and use the Home Land Security take-down picture to scare account holder away from asking $ back for the account balance! -Smilie

I agree the badge looks funny. However, domain seizures have been done by DHS in the past: http://thehill.com/blogs/hillicon...ain-names-


Right now no image is coming up at the SDer Club site URL.
