The Digital Hit Man Now Available…

In all my years in business I have become extremely skilled at four unique talents. I can hunt down and find most people anywhere. I have the ability to extract sensitive information over the phone via pretext. I can also “disappear” people in need. These parts of my business are behind me, but the one thing they all have in common is the use of deception which is my fourth and greatest skill.

In my world you will never find the heavy sell or some bullshit about the use of innovative software designed by scientists, mathematicians and technologists. I leave that lie for the snake oil salesmen pimping tonic water as a remedy. The reality is I lie to deal with a client’s information but I never lie to a potential client or a client, or ever make promises I cannot deliver. There have been plenty of times I have walked away from big pay-days because the request was not doable.

I have always had the attitude that this is what I do and this is what it costs, take it or leave it. I am not a salesman—I am a master of deception. In the digital world there are dozens of articles floating around about me and my crazy life. The articles share tales of misdeeds, misfortunes, audits and alcohol, but none have ever had a complaint about my services. I have been described as a long-haired-hippie, biker and street-kind-of-guy and most recently as the kind of guy you meet in a corner bar. In the great words of Popeye, “I am what I am.” Because of that I am better at hiding, deleting, manipulating and creating digital distortion than any scientist, mathematician, technologist or Ph.D. So ask yourself, when you’re at war, who do you want fighting for you, a gunslinger or a word-slinger?

I do not have a sales pitch or a factory of employees working for me. But if you are going to place your trust, you should place it with one professional, not a company of two-hundred where your information is vulnerable and easily accessible to each and every one of these employees.

What I do is create digital deception which solves digital problems. Unfortunately not everyone can afford an expert to assist them with their needs. So I figured I would explain what I do just like I did in How to Disappear for those who need to take matters into their own hands.

How to Disappear is the authoritative and comprehensive guide for people who seek to protect their privacy as well as for anyone who’s ever entertained the fantasy of disappearing—whether actually dropping out of sight or by eliminating the traceable evidence of their existence.

Seven arrested over ‘share scams’

Six men and a woman have been arrested in the UK in a further crackdown by the authorities against illegal “boiler room” share selling operations.

The Financial Services Authority (FSA) said victims of the alleged fraud appeared to have lost £28m. The arrests were part of an attack on fraudsters involving authorities across Europe as well as the UK. The FSA said the arrests in the South of England were part of the biggest such operation it has yet conducted.

The seven were arrested in early morning raids on Wednesday on seven homes and one office in London, Hertfordshire, Surrey and West Sussex. FSA officers were helped by the Crown Prosecution Service, City of London Police and Hertfordshire Police.

Big problem

The wider investigation has involved authorities in several European countries, including the Maltese anti-money laundering department. The problem of boiler rooms, many based overseas, is widespread. Participants tend to phone people directly to urge them to make worthless investments dressed up as attractive propositions.  The FSA says it is told of about 500 new ones each year, although some may be the same outfits masquerading under new identities. The FSA recently revealed that it was contacted by about 3,000 boiler room victims each year, reporting an average loss of £20,000 each. But it says this is clearly the “the tip of the iceberg” and estimates that there are probably about 30,000 victims in the UK each year, with a collective loss of between £150m and £300m.

It has been reported that one ring leader Frank Tromper has absconded with several million pounds and is now in the South Pacific.

How to get your own fake passport

With the news media largely dominated by a recent assassination in my old stomping grounds of Dubai, there has been much talk of the use of fake passports.

Politicians have been outraged at the insult to the British Passport and muttering dire warnings about the sanctity of the passport system itself being imperilled.  Last night, Channel 4 News had a dark shadowy figure explain how easy it is for spooks to fake or clone passports. This being top secret information, the speaker was hidden from view and only identified by his first name.

All very serious stuff and I know from experince – I am Frank Tromper man of many identities.

Some years ago I needed to get a new passport as my old one had expired and at the time I was rather too poor to afford to renew it (let alone have a reason to use it) and that experience of stupid bureaucracy educated me as to how incredibly simple it is to get a fake passport in the UK.

It turned out that my Birth Certificate was a photocopy (from the days when photocopies were done on decent paper) and I needed an original. Also, where my Managing Director had signed the declaration of worthiness, it turned out that as I had filled in the form and he had signed it was a very naughty thing indeed. My remonstrations that Managing Directors are too busy to fill in forms, they just sign forms other people fill in fell on deaf ears.

It took three visits to get the application approved, largely because in my naivety, I thought that level of narrow minded pettiness over frankly, insignificant issues was something that had died out in the 1970s. A year later I needed a special visa from the US Embassy, and ran into the same level of mindless bureaucracy again – what is it with civil servants and petty paper pushing?

Bear in mind that some of the procedures may have changed in the subsequent few years – but when people tell you that the passport is the highest form of identity that exists, remember how easy it is to get one in someone else’s name.

How to Get a Fake Passport

1) Move into a new property or bedsit/squat.

2) Visit your local Family Records Centre and look up the name of a person who was born around the same time that you were. Order a copy of their Birth Certificate. The key point here – no proof of identity was required and you could pay cash over the counter. No “audit trail” exists and you can collect the certificate by hand the following day.

3) Now you have a name to clone, contact a suitable utilities provider (gas, electricity etc) and inform them you have just moved into your home and can you have an account opened up.

4) Twiddle fingers for a while and wait until the first utility bill arrives. You now have the two forms of ID required – a Birth Certificate and a Proof of Address.

5) Get a passport application form and ask a fellow conspirator to declare that they are doctor or solicitor and that they think you are a terrible nice chap. At most, the only check made against them is a phone call to check they did fill in the form.

6) A couple of weeks later – and a passport arrives in the post.

7) Move out of property and vanish along with your new fake identity.
