Fraudulent Comments?

Here’s another bizarre tweet from the Cabin Boy™.vbr201402221510Z

IC3? That’s the Internet Crime Complaint website set up jointly by the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center for submitting reports of online fraud. According to its FAQ page,

The Internet Crime Complaint Center accepts online Internet crime complaints filed by the person who believes they were defrauded or filed by a third party to the complainant.

The elements of fraud are (1) a false statement of a material fact, (2) made with knowledge on the part of the defendant that the statement is untrue, (3) with the intent to deceive the alleged victim, (4) who justifiably relied on the statement, and (5) with resulting injury to the alleged victim.

  1. Is there ANY evidence he’s sent these “threats” to ANY authority? Is there any evidence of these “threats” even existing?

    And reporting “death threats” to a fraud task force? WTF?

  2. The amount of popcorn that is being consumed in the offices of these various “authorities” he is complaining to could probably feed an entire third-world nation for week.

    It’s Saturday Bill, go catch a movie or something. Step away from the keyboard.

  3. Geez. It’s a good thing you decided to put up a post.

    From the looks of it, Schmalfeldt was ready to explode with nothing to OUTRAGE!!! him today. It just took a short time for him to go into 5th gear.

    Ignoring him may be the most cruel thing you can do to him……

  4. Have you seen the tweet “proving” IC3 deals with threats too?

    There is absolutely NOTHING about threats, death or otherwise, on the entire screenshot.

  5. From the “About us” section of the IC3 website:

    “Since its inception, the IC3 has received complaints crossing the spectrum of cyber crime matters, to include online fraud in its many forms including Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) matters, Computer Intrusions (hacking), Economic Espionage (Theft of Trade Secrets), Online Extortion, International Money Laundering, Identity Theft, and a growing list of Internet facilitated crimes.”

    Sorry, nothing there about criminal butthurt.

    and the IC3 Mission Statement:

    “The IC3’s mission is to serve as a vehicle to receive, develop, and refer criminal complaints regarding the rapidly expanding arena of cyber crime. ”

    Nope. Criminal butthurt is not considered cybercrime.

    • Wait, wait, wait. Identity theft gives you butthurt, therefore causing butthhurt is an international crime!!! Because LICKSPITTLES!!!

  6. If the purpose is to disturb and annoy Mr. Hoge as much as possible, it makes no difference whether the reportings make any sense or even whether they are in fact made. Nonsensical reports may cost Mr. Hoge time (if the cops receiving the report have as little intelligence as Judge Vaughey); non-existent reports may cost him or his family repose.

    • His insistence without evidence that any such threats have any relation at all to John Hoge is one thing. If John being contacted repeatedly because of such insistence by investigators becomes a pattern, then we have third party contact driven by Baghdad Blob and yet another peace order violation(s).

  7. Mr. H., since you are now, at least part time, a blogger who reports on cyber harassment, etc., you could always contact the FBI press liaison/PR department and get an interview about what they do.

  8. I am giggling with delight in spite of the pain! Nothing like some wrong-headed assclownery on a Saturday full of pain to put me in an excellent mood. And hyper-assclownery at that! I really believe he is intentionally trying for an inviluntary committal!
    Help! Help! His stupidity causes me to laugh and it hurts! He’s assaulting me with a dead weapon!

  9. I’d point out that, whosoever sends these threats to these entities, they WILL be traced back to the original sender, no matter they are purported to be from. If they’re hoaxes, they will be able to determine this also, with equal aplomb.

  10. And requesting info from (I think?) Go Daddy, and asking if they need HIM to get a subpoena? Since when do civilians get subpoenas? Or have all the L&O type shows I’ve watched over the years gotten it wrong?

    And yes, I’ve didn’t stay away all weekend. Sue me.

  11. I think this is an emotional 4 year old throwing tantrums hoping Mommy will give him candy.

    And the candy is “attention.”

    Today, possibly for the first time, he’s been denied the candy. As a parent, I remember those nights when I would have to physically hold my crying wife to prevent her going into the baby’s room to soothe him when he was learning to put himself to sleep.

    I think maybe the Cabin Boy’s Mommy never stood up to him as a child, and that he grew up believing he was God’s gift to whatever room he was
    in, especially if it happened to be the dining room.

    I think today here at Lickspittle Base we gained some valuable intelligence. Silence may be the most powerful weapon in the Lickspittle arsenal. Talk about him here at Hogewash all we want, being careful as always not to place our gracious host in a precarious legal position.

    As always, CBBS will retreat to his only available outlets, Twitter & his constantly under-construction blog. I think he will vent his spleen there, virtually begging for the feedback he’s become used to from us.

    Continue to deny him. I think it will drive him even more nuts. We’ve seen that happen today. If we continue this tactic, I think he will become exponentially more frustrated.

    Read him. Comment here. Deny his inevitable protestations the oxygen he desperately thinks they deserve.

    The resulting fireworks should be glorious!

    • he hasn’t anything to report, he probably hasn’t reported anything most reports require that you go to the agency and file a sworn complaint in person and attest under oath and penalty that the foresworn is true. If it is indeed serious the FBI immediately contacts local law enforcement to investigate and to hold while they have time to get there.

      Given what happened to Frey and company in the actual swatting where a serious crime was committed, even then they did not bother to come in person to investigate rather Frey had to go to them.

      You can call all you want send emails all you want to local authorities – unless they come out to interview you or require you to come to them, then all he is doing is more inventions of his mind.

      Apparently Christmas Eve isn’t just the 24th of December anymore….

  12. Oh, yeah? Well, I filed a report with Interpol and I called Superman! You’re in a heap of trouble now, Blob! Just you wait. This time, for sure!
