It happened on 23rd Aug 2022 and this matter lasted almost one month without any process. Masterbucks.com declined my fund withdrawal and disabled the button of fund withdrawal. And I contacted Epik.com and got no further action even if Rob Monster got involved in it for two weeks. All the time I was told in email by management review.

What is wrong with Epik.com? Do you think it is normal to disable fund withdrawal? How can I get back my fund from Epik.com? Thanks for your suggestion.

Is the offer to pay interest on deposits on Masterbucks and talk about turning Masterbucks into a bank, is it an attempt to enter a new round of fraud?
Paying interest on masterbucks and having high withdrawal fees are both meant to keep people from cashing out their Masterbucks. (they don't have enough cash to cover all the Masterbucks as we know from Barrie's post in 2019). This is a text book Ponzi scheme.

The talk of turning Masterbucks into a bank, bringing in investors based upon fraudulent claims, "buying" other companies and pretending to build and launch many new projects are all attempts to extend the ramp for their Ponzi scheme. Ponzis must continue to grow or they implode. Once the cascade effect begins it all comes down very quickly. All based in confidence of the "investment" and manager. That is why Monster is so aggressive in trying to silence critics because if there is a run on Masterbucks they completely implode, which they have already started to do.

If you search on youtube for "ponzi scheme examples" you will be shocked how similar they all are. Even the recent FTX is very similar scheme as masterbucks.

Speaking of turning Masterbucks into a bank, perhaps Monster dreamed that people who are not domainers would invest in the domainer industry for the sake of passive profit.
In this way, he could possibly have access to much more money.

Hey, it's good to see he has time to kiss Elon's ass but not deal with a customer that according to TrustPilot.com is owed $1.5M.

Dude really says "more speech" is the way forward while he is radio silent and refuses to interact with customers that are owed money. :ROFL:

Twitter will fail (killed by Instagram and tik tok and its own bad ceo) I have not used it for a long time….I have a keen eye for a failed business ….like Epik I know it will fail since two years ago during one small interaction with the ceo then and I stopped using it since lol

I don't understand how Аman made them pay the money. It is unprofitable to sue because of $25,000. Too expensive. Even because of my $55,433 litigation is very problematic. Unless the court decides to reimburse legal costs. What about those who owe $10-15K? Are there any free lawyers for the poor in America? But they probably won't help foreigners. Or can scammers safely deceive for such amounts, knowing that they will not be sued?

Used NameCheap's Black Friday transfer deal to move out a bunch of Epik domains. 🙂

Transferring out more domains.

Was going to wait until a transfer deal but seeing more and more complaints about funds being locked... makes me more concerned. 🙁

Anyone noticed Epik takes longer to update DNS and Nameservers now? Also seems like transfers are much slower.

Maybe @jmcc could show us how many domains are getting transferred out of Epik?

As registrars, at least Namecheap, Namesilo and Regery accept cryptos for payments. Porkbun does too, but there is a 10% markup except for USDC, which makes it unappealing if you want to use Bitcoin for example.
Not so sweet! :xf.wink:

✔️ Namecheap, Namesilo accept BTC only.

⚠️ Porkbun started to require a phone verification for crypto payments.

⛔ Regery started to require documents verification for crypto payments. I don't trust Regery to send them my documents. Don't advise for all‼️

I'm not sure how accurate DomainState/TopRegistrars is, but they seemingly track the volume of domains at a given registrar, albeit with few months delay. The last update was July 2022, and it showed Epik with 764k domains (ranked #45) with porkBun trailing ranked #46.

domainstate .com /registrar/epik.html

...

DomainIQ ((https://www.domainiq.com/tools_registrar)) shows Epik with 1.095million domains (ranked #59), and differing from the above DomainState report, DomainIQ shows porkbun with 400k more domains than epik at 1.5 million (ranked #45)... DomainIQ states their data is updated daily; I'm not sure where domainIQ is pulling data from vs where DomainState is pulling its data from.

...

Nonetheless, It will be interesting to see what happens to these DUM (domains under management) numbers after this masterBucks fiasco / disappearance of RobMonster starts to reflect in these delayed registrar reports.

...

Meanwhile, new epik Chief Tweeting Officer is continuing to tweet the value he brings to #Epik.

Did you see the post earlier in this thread from a collection agency offering to work for people who are owed money by Epik?

That can be a good choice, they typically take a % based on success and know how to exert pressure. You probably have nothing to lose, but do check ToS and legal implications if unsure.

Also, have you reported your case to the Attorney General of Washington state in the USA?

Where is the post from the collection agency? I think I might need to work with them.

I think the youth call guys like this Royce character "SIMPS". It's pretty pathetic.

I didn't turn to either.
As for debt collectors, I have a suspicion that agencies like this may be doing nothing, just hoping for a chance that the debt will be repaid without their involvement, and they'll get a nice 30% bonus for doing nothing.

Usually they actively pursue the target and keep you informed of their actions. You have nothing to lose by talking to one. They have the advantage of local presence and knowledge of how to apply pressure.

The overall DUM with Epik will go down.

Nonetheless, It will be interesting to see what happens to these DUM (domains under management) numbers after this masterBucks fiasco / disappearance of RobMonster starts to reflect in these delayed registrar reports.

My name is Hal Wallace, I am the co-owner of Ryan & Jacobs, a collection company in Texas USA. I am asking everyone that is owed money by Epik to contact me at 972-954-5416 if you want me to try and collect your money. doesn't cost anything unless we are successful

Email me hal at ryanandjacobs . com

We will sue him if need be.

We are going after Brian Royce against his old company Unified Commerce Company. He ran that company in the ground and is doing the same to Epik.

Time is of the essence, I expect a bankruptcy filing soon. When that happens, no one gets paid.
This is the collection agency who posted earlier, @Charlice

Does anyone know who "JJE" is? I'm reading through Epik's response to the the GADO lawsuit and it states:

While working for Epik, the Plaintiff began working with one of Epik’s chief customers--JJE. JJE offered and invested into a plan for ownership in Epik. Within a few months, however, JJE changed its position and asked Epik if JJE could divest from their investment in Epik. As an agreement and negotiations between Epik and JJE progressed, JJE broke off from their original offer to Epik and negotiated for a settlement. As negotiated by Gado, part of the settlement was that JJE would have the right to hire four named individuals (including the Plaintiff).

? https://jjech.com/about-us/ JJE Capital ?

Their showcase shows a strong interest in armaments: https://jjech.com/portfolio-companies/
JJE is the parent company of Palmetto State Armory (PSA).

At a cursory glance you can see some connections between their company and Epik, or people involved with that company and Epik. There are some posts on forums, Facebook, Twitter, and and other sites related to some social media site called "Bravvox" that PSA was supposedly going to launch which Epik might have been involved with.

A post on Facebook which states Epik was involved with the development of a social media site for PSA aka "Bravvox".

Also, supposed connections between "Bravvox" and Truth Social & Epik -

JJE is the investment company that Rob tricked into giving him $16,000,000. Rob mentioned here https://gorf.tube/w/9MXidYjnW7tZGN8hABmq4W

When they figured out Rob was a total conman they demanded their money back. They got a little back but still trying to get the rest back, like many others. Here is an outline of status with them (watch how this brings out the Monster trolls):

TruthSocial is based on Mastodon. It is a total mess and joke.
