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.
