Ok I have had a long conversation with the CEO of Maxbounty JP Sauve. Need I add that Adam D was infact my account manager before all these stories went flying around, a good honest and open guy, which is very hard to believe this accusation but here are the facts. Adam was charged with Posssession of Child Pornography (it's the possession that's the crime.), and still claims innocent, which is reasonable, i have known a few people online who have been charged for the same offence, and one was a 58 year old woman who never used the computer in 2months, but she left it on standby. (Could have been virus, rootkit or something which, could be possible in this situtation) You recieved an email (if your a Maxbounty affiliate) saying Adam was taking a break or on holiday, because He had told management he was taking time of for stress. He never told Maxbounty what was going on, they only found out about the charges and anything related when they read it in the Newspapers, which is why they emailed saying he was on holiday, is because thats what Maxbounty was told. After reading the newspaper story ofcourse it was a shock to all the staff at Maxbounty, then this is when Adam admitted to them it was him who was charged. Now if one of your family members got charged for something they claim to be innocent how would you feel? Now im not personally saying at this time he is innocent, time will sure tell, but all these messages saying totally bad things is really going against facts, i believe the old saying innocent until proven guilty, if that happens so be it you can say what you like then. Personally I dont think anyone should be posting things slamming Maxbounty as they had no idea until they read it in the news. Speaking to Mr Sauve his exact words when i asked was he fired was? "It was mutually decided he best not represent the company while charges are in place and while he attempts to defend his innocence. Company stance is that we were surprised by the charges, we simply had no idea. While none of us here can see him being guilty, the honest truth is that none of us know the truth and a court of law will decide." Now what could be the possible reasons for him getting accused? Let me brainstorm, possible reasons if he was guilty could be : Someone has infected him with some sort of trojan based uploader, ftp server and done this in badness to in simple terms F**K him over, i have heard rumors that an affiliate who never got payed for bad reasons did this and then reported him He was surfing possible adult porn sites, and following on through TGPs and ending up lost in a world of popups and ending up in some malicious website, i have been a victim of this in the past, when you click somewhere you seem looks legit, its a front to a whole bad world even know i usually report them sites straight of if i ever come across them I have once in my life recieved a spam email, you know the type "SL4ZY A$IAN $SLUuTZ" in the subject and out of curiosity i always click to see what is being promoted and atleast once in my life has been some sort of child porn in those emails (YES I NEVER ASKED FOR THIS JUNK EMAIL) P2P file sharing, we have all been on Limewire, and downloaded something we never asked for that was renamed. Open Wireless router? I believe he lives near a lot of people and ranges these days can go far, this would include wardriving Hundreds of other legitimate reasons. So lets leave it at that until hes proven innocent or guilty, and If he is Innocent in which i believe (at least i hope to believe) if you see him after you should give him some respect, someones life could be fucked over here just for someone messing with him, or some mistake. I dont want posts here as a reply saying "FUCK HIM" or whatever, imagine it as one of "our" own, we all know how the web can fly and land you in a wrong turn when you least expect it. Only serious replies guys and remember facts are facts and right now he is innocent until proven guilty. And as an ending known imagine if you owned a business and one of your employees landing you in this situation that you where unaware of until you read the local paper. Nobody should blame or tag it along with this guys name and accusation as its unfair, it would be like if we had something go wrong here on Blackhatworld by one user, would you hate the forum? NO I thought not. So We will leave it as that.
