—————————————————————————————————————————-
To: Major Financial Processing Firms’ Complaints Department Representatives
(Paypal, VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Diner’s Club, JCB)

On behalf of myself and my peers, I am lodging a formal complaint regarding your provision of financial services to Real Social Dynamics—specifically Real Social Dynamic’s co-owner Julien Blanc (pseudonym)—on the grounds that their employees, business practices and instructional literature promote violence against women, sexual harassment, rape and racism.

About Real Social Dynamics:

Real Social Dynamics (www.rsdnation.com / www.realsocialdynamics.com), hereunder referred to as ‘RSD’, offer paid-for “Pick Up Artist” (‘PUA’) advice in the form of dating-advice seminars referred to as “boot camps” and online material. At these bootcamps, they instruct young men in how to “Pick Up” women using psychological and emotional manipulation, physical intimidation, and duplicity. Specifically, RSD promotes Mr. Blanc’s racist, misogynistic and sexually abusive materials as well as a host of other “date instructors” who have previously received negative media attention.

About Julien Blanc (The following testimonies are taken from RSD’s own promotional material):

“Julien’s (ability to seduce women) is unbelievable. I’m continually shocked by it, while at the same time unsure if it’s actually happening. How can he get (away) with what he does? When most people would go to jail for what he yells in public places – he gets laid.”
-RSD representative “Alexander”

“Julien was just a kid with nothing to lose, brainwashed and brutalized for two years by Tyler (pseudonym of the head representative of RSD) in the crucible of the LA club scene, then thrown to the wolves on an extended global tour. The end result? A completely amoral, highly lethal weapon obsessively dedicated to his all-consuming purpose: getting YOU laid. In short, he’s RSD’s Darth Maul”
-RSD representative “Jeffy”

In the last several days, Mr. Blanc of RSD has come under fire for committing what may be interpreted as a breach of Japanese laws regarding public disturbance, harassment and the inducement of to commit crime (Penal Code, Article 61, “Inducement”; Article 106, “Disturbance”; Article 176, “Forcible Indecency”; Article 208, “Assault; Article 234, “Forcible Obstruction of Business”).

For your reference, please see the following video. It depicts one of Mr. Blanc’s instructional seminars where he advocates illegal and racist behavior as well as video footage of Mr. Blanc in the act: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grV1iDns87s

We believe that the conduct of Mr. Blanc as recorded in this video are in breach of the following Japanese laws which fall under the purview of not only sexual harassment but also the harassment of an on-duty employee of a business:

第六十一条(教唆)
Article 61. (Inducement)
1 人を教唆して犯罪を実行させた者には、正犯の刑を科する。
(1) A person who induces another to commit a crime shall be dealt with in sentencing as a principal.
2 教唆者を教唆した者についても、前項と同様とする。
(2) The same shall apply to a person who induces another to induce.

第百六条(騒乱)
Article 106. (Disturbance)
多衆で集合して暴行又は脅迫をした者は、騒乱の罪とし、次の区別に従って処断する。
A person who assembles in a crowd and commits an act of assault or intimidation thereby commits the crime of disturbance and shall be sentenced according to the following distinctions:
一 首謀者は、一年以上十年以下の懲役又は禁錮に処する。
(i) A ringleader shall be punished by imprisonment with or without work for not less than 1 year but not more than 10 years;
二 他人を指揮し、又は他人に率先して勢いを助けた者は、六月以上七年以下の懲役又 は禁錮に処する。
(ii) A person who directs others or takes the lead in stirring up others shall be punished by imprisonment with or without work for not less than 6 months but not more than 7 years;
三 付和随行した者は、十万円以下の罰金に処する。
(iii) A person who merely follows others shall be punished by a fine of not more than 100,000 yen.

第百七十六条(強制わいせつ)
Article 176. (Forcible Indecency)
十三歳以上の男女に対し,暴行又は脅迫を用いてわいせつな行為をした者は,六月以上 十年以下の懲役に処する。十三歳未満の男女に対し,わいせつな行為をした者も,同様と する。
A person who, through assault or intimidation, forcibly commits an indecent act upon a male or female of not less than thirteen years of age shall be punished by imprisonment with work for not less than 6 months but not more than 10 years. The same shall apply to a person who commits an indecent act upon a male or female under thirteen years of age.

第二百八条(暴行)
Article 208. (Assault)
暴行を加えた者が人を傷害するに至らなかったときは,二年以下の懲役若しくは三十万 円以下の罰金又は拘留若しくは科料に処する。
When a person assaults another without injuring the other person, the person shall be punished by imprisonment with work for not more than 2 years, a fine of not more than 300,000 yen, misdemeanor imprisonment without work or a petty fine.

第三十五章 信用及び業務に対する罪
Chapter XXXV. Crimes against Credit and Business
第二百三十四条(威力業務妨害)
Article 234. (Forcible Obstruction of Business)
威力を用いて人の業務を妨害した者も,前条の例による。
A person who obstructs the business of another by force shall be dealt with in the same manner as proscribed under the preceding Article.

The backlash from the global community against Mr. Blanc has been very severe. At the time that the above video reached the attention of the general public, Mr. Blanc was on tour in Australia instructing a series of RSD seminars. The resulting fallout culminated in Mr. Blanc being forced out of Australia, with the Australian government annulling his travel visa shortly thereafter. This is indicative of the severity of the sexual crimes which Julien and RSD are accused of, and that is precisely why this issue should be taken very seriously by you, your respective institutions and their constituents.

In closing, I would like to re-emphasize that the views and behavior espoused in this video are endorsed by Mr. Blanc and RSD in the “instructive material” which they sell through their website using your financial services. As such, we believe that RSD should be disallowed further sales of any of their products via your financial services until a full investigation of all content which they are promoting is prosecuted.

Thank you very much for your kind consideration,
Anonymous
