They say that all that they did was sell advertising space to companies, which unbeknownst to them ended up being investment schemes and that these same companies were buying similar ads on Google, Facebook and other popular websites.  Homeland Security never publicly stated the reason for the raid or if or how they made a mistake in the case which never saw an charges brought.
Unlike what many of Ed's opponents claim, he has never been arrested or charged with a crime of any kind.
