Thanks to Craig Silverman of Buzzfeed

( https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/craigsilverman/google-search-manipulation-online-reputation-expert) for reminding me of this case that I had followed for several years. Per our post back in July 2015 entitled “They don’t Just go Away” (https://acquirerrisk.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=1494&action=edit) we see the same serial fraudsters reappear sooner or later.

Underwriters should read Craig Silverman’s well researched article and make a mental note to watch for the Rubin’s to reappear, having in their minds “cleaned up” their public image on-line.

If Craig should like to explore a similar story he can look up Philip Arcand, age 58, released in May of 2011 after doing 10 years for his part in inserting numerous fraud/fictitious merchants into a bank’s portfolio causing millions in losses. Unlike the Rubins, instead of trying to manipulate public data, Arcand changed his name and is now back in the merchant processing business per http://www.scamion.com/ppay-inc-a1.
