In August 2015, I came across a marketing product that I found extremely suspicious and I published a review.
The product was called “Automated Income Stream System”.
It was obviously a scam, there were pictures of luxury cars, screenshots of paychecks, PayPal accounts, and money claims.
At the time I was writing the review, I notice people’s complaints and there were many cases of refunds.
After the review was published and the page was getting traffic, people were stopping by with their comments.
Many of them lost money to this product and they were not able to recover them.
Fast forward to December 2020, I received a comment from Nelson, a student saying…
My mom was also a victim of Chris Cobb scam and we’ve lost 12k to him. Do you know anyone who has recovered some or at least half of what they’ve invested?

A Sad Story Needs Some Attention
I was sorry about this news and at that time, I suggested that Nelson should file a complaint through FTC (Federal Trade Commission).
After 2 weeks or so, she replied with this message…
Met Chris through my mom as she stumbled upon him on Facebook. Then the dark days began he told her about ais and other stuff which she bought without knowing how it works and trusted him so that she can earn money online, she also went to one of his crap events. In the end it was money in the drain. He had her with word’s saying all kinds of sweet things to make her trust him and he even came home once to set up her computer to show, how ais works. Then last year I was just searching for him and stumbled upon your page and was shocked to know how this bald guy was ripping off vulnerable people of all their savings and showed my mom all his scams and warned her to block him right away but she didn’t and was in contact with him anyway and when she asked him about it he said it was all a lie and some people are trying to bad mouth him cause of his success, so at the end of last year, she needed some money and I transferred her as she was bed ridden due to leg infection from last 2 year’s which got bad. Then she stumbled upon one of bald Cobb’s mail’s as she thought of him as brother and he was very friendly with her to get money out of her. So she invested 14k into his done for you trading and she didn’t told me as she wanted to surprise me, so when I came to know about this I told her to mail him and withdraw all the money , when she requested him some money out of the interest accumulated he sent her 500 first and then 1500 so that she can invest more into this and kept mailing her some Excel sheets with fake numbers and then in November as mom was going threw some financial problems she requested him to withdraw all the money but he didn’t reply and blocked her on Facebook, so I sent him a heartfelt mail about my financial situation and problems I went threw to save that money to help my mom but he is heartless person and never answered to any of my mails and messages on Facebook. Now I’m totally broke and my mom is in depression and her medical condition is getting worse day by day.
What a tragic story. I suggested Nelson file a complaint through FTC, or the European anti-fraud office, share her story on social media, or use a service like GoFundMe.
After a while, Nelson replied that she had intentions to fight for this case.
And yesterday, I received an email from Nelson.
She informed me that she setup a GoFundMe campaign to pay for her mom’s bills, rent, and other expenses.
Please read my story and share it as much as possible, any help will be appreciated.
When I read this email, I found her name somehow familiar. But I could not remember exactly who she was.
I searched my email list but I could find her email address. I did not check the comment section though.
The last time she commented on the blog was in February, so it was a big gap.
Anyway, I read her story on GoFundMe and I decided to share it on my social accounts.
She came back to me with another email where she mentioned that her mom was a victim of that product.
This is when I realized who she was.
Hello everyone my name is Nelson and I’m raising funds for my mom(Kate) as we are going through a tough time, last year we had to sell our house due to mortgage payment been left behind and not getting work due to this pandemic. She was diagnosed with Psoriasis as she was constantly working in and out of hospital as she is a nurse and caught covid as well while looking after patients, she is the strongest women I’ve ever known.When we sold the house to keep us financially stable we were unfortunately scammed of all that money and we have nothing left no house, no car and all our savings are gone. My mom has been walking miles to take buses to work and she doesn’t even have a car anymore, I would appreciate it if you could help her out of this crisis as she can barely walk because of this infection, it’s like 3rd degree burns all over her legs and arms but still, she goes to work every day but doesn’t show any concern to keep me strong. Any help would be appreciated as we have our rent, bills to pay to get through this tough crisis.
No donations are small or big, every help will be appreciated.
Why I Share This Story
Because I believe in Nelson’s story. She was investigating this product online and she came across my review.
With her first message, she was asking for more information, and if someone was able to recover money from this money fraud.
She shared her story in her second message, after 15 days or so, and she said she was ready to fight for her mom in her 3rd message.
The way she described the incident I understand that this is a real story.
This is what happens to victims of money fraud, people that are desperate and someone presents them with something extraordinary, too good to be true, but at the same time, so desirable.
That’s why I decided to give some publicity to this story.
What You Can Do
I’m asking you that you read Nelson’s mom’s story and my review of this product and then you can visit the GoFundMe website.
I’m not asking for you to donate.
All I’m asking is that you share this article or the GoFundMe page with your network.
Someone might want to donate. Together, we can help a person in need.
Another article has finished, here on WebMarketSupport. I’m waiting for your comments and thoughts. Till next time.
