One can search the words: fraud, scam, offshore alerts, online defamation and realize that it is far more than someone just posting false statements online as a method of retaliation.
In some cases, the online antagonists are individual(s) who search the internet for situations where they can ransom another person’s reputation for financial gain. They scour court cases and newspapers online to find new victims to intimidate and attack. They are professional, cyber-criminals who seek to permanently damage and destroy a person or business for their financial gain.
I, Jeffrey Lipton of Barbados, am a victim of such online harassment, blackmail and coercion.
In this particular instance, the cyber-criminals funded their crime in two ways. They initially contacted the plaintiffs in a court case they read about online. They promised to get justice if the plaintiffs sent money to fund the private investigation. They proffered conspiracy theories and false hope of getting restitution.
The money sent from the victims would fund the fraudulent alert sites, the courier packages and the costs of maintaining the online platforms. Once the plaintiffs sent their money, they were couriered a report full of false claims and “official looking” documents to support the claims. See the below “Cautionary Advice to Reader” as the warning printed on the last page of that report. This should have been enough for most individuals to realize they were delivered a dubious and suspect package.
Once funded, the perpetrator contacted me, hoping I would agree to their terms in order to avoid an online smear campaign and to avoid them reporting me to the US Justice Department, the RCMP, the Barbados Police, Interpol, Israeli Police Financial Crime Units, the list goes on.
The package I received was different from what the “victims” received. It also contained completely incorrect and untrue opinions stated as facts, doctored filings and corporate documents, false claims, references to ponzi schemes, conspiracy, fraud, all presented as an “investigative” report that would be released if I didn’t comply with their form of “remedial justice”. It included photos of my residence and business, the corporate auditor’s building and my family members’ homes.
The below letter was included in the package that was covertly delivered in the middle of the night at my corporate address.
