23 Years Old Owes Facebook $1.4M for Ad Scam

A baby-faced financier from Brooklyn taunted Facebook officials and a federal judge one too many times — and now has to pay the social network up to $1.4 million.

Martin Grunin, 23, was hit with the default judgment for repeatedly failing to properly respond to a lawsuit filed against him by Facebook, and could even face federal criminal charges, The Post has learned.

Facebook sued Grunin, who lives in his dad’s Manhattan Beach house, in San Francisco federal court last year, saying he duped the company into extending big advertising lines of credit that he then sold off for more than $350,000.

Instead of negotiating a settlement, Grunin, who once told his St. Francis College newspaper that “money drives me completely,” repeatedly mocked the proceeding and, at one point, offered a check for just $250 “to settle the matter,” court papers show.

Addressing Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg directly in a filing, Grunin warned that failure to accept the three-figure deal would result in a $50,000 “penalty,” according to court papers. Grunin even demanded a $2,000-per-call fee to talk to attorneys.

“I do not consent to these proceedings,” he wrote in one court filing.

After giving Grunin several chances to negotiate the case, Judge William Alsup entered a default judgment in favor of Facebook.

The company was asked to submit its payment demand, and hit Grunin with the $1.4 million figure, which included damages and attorneys’ fees.

Grunin has until Jan. 27 to dispute the amount. He refused to comment outside his home Thursday as he climbed into a black BMW that bore a vanity plate that read, “IM QUICK.”

The amateur stock picker, who frequently poses with luxury cars and stacks of cash in online posts, ignored a slew of cease-and-desist orders from Facebook and saw more than 70 sham accounts shut down by the company before it sued, court papers allege.

He has represented himself for most of the case.

In addition to financial disaster, Grunin’s insolence might just land him in prison.

At the end of his ruling, Alsup said he was referring the case to federal prosecutors for criminal investigation.

“In light of the serious nature of the allegations herein, the clerk shall send a copy of this order to our US attorney for her consideration and possible investigation,” he wrote.

When INEC Announced Feb* 14 as Election Day #picture

Nigerian Men will feel really lucky this year 

Story For The gods #Hope #Faith #Peace #Love

In a room there were four candles burning.
The ambiance was so soft you could hear
them talking.
The first one said, “I am PEACE, however
nobody can keep me lit. I believe I will go
It’s flame rapidly diminishes and goes out
The second one says, “I am FAITH. Most
of all I am no longer indispensable, so it
does not make any sense that I stay lit any
When it finished talking a breeze softly
blew on it putting it out.
Sadly, the third candle spoke in its turn. “I
am LOVE. I have not gotten the strength
to stay lit. People put me aside and don’t
understand my importance. They even
forget to love those who are nearest to
them.” And waiting no longer it goes out.
Suddenly a child entered the room and saw
three candles not burning. “Why are you
not burning you are supposed to stay lit till
the end.”
Saying this the child began to cry. Then
the fourth candle said, “Don’t be afraid,
while I am still burning we can re-light the
other candles, I am HOPE.”
With shining eyes, the child took the
candle of Hope and lit the other candles.
The flame of Hope should never go out
from our life and that each of us can
maintain HOPE, FAITH, PEACE and
Hope never abandons you. You abandon
hope. Consult not your fears but your
hopes and your dreams. Think not about
your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled
potential. Concern yourself not with what
you tried and failed in, but with what it is
still possible for you to do.

Cuffed Teen Helps Save A Cop Life

 Jamal Rutledge, 17, raised the alarm as the officer who was booking him at a police station went into cardiac arrest.

Officer Franklin Foulks was booking Jamal Rutledge at the police station in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on 10 September when the drama unfolded.

The policeman suddenly collapsed and the handcuffed 17-year-old began kicking the security fence and shouting to alert others to the medical emergency.

Officers heard the noise and responded to find 49-year-old Officer Foulks clutching his chest in distress.

They administered CPR and used a defibrillator to electronically stimulate his heart.
In a statement, Fort Lauderdale police credited Rutledge's quick thinking and the officers' response for Officer Foulks' survival.

The teen and three Fort Lauderdale police officers will be commended at a ceremony next Wednesday.

Rutledge was being processed at the time of the incident on charges of violation of probation for criminal mischief and burglary.

Despite being hailed as a hero, he has apparently not managed to stay on the right side of the law.
Rutledge has been arrested "multiple times" since last September.

Jamal is to be honored for saving the life of a police officer who suffered a heart attack after arresting him.

name, my son's elder

Olabisi and my best
friend's name is Omobisi, which
of the Bisi is yours?
