Fraud Alert Update

Thanks to Quilly Mammoth in the comments to the original post, I now have a website for the presumed fraudster – or someone has framed him perfectly. His address info:

Location: Machynlleth, Powys, United Kingdom

Which is identical to the Whois:

Admin Name:David Thorpe
Admin Organization:David Thorpe
Admin Street1:Cyberium
Admin Street2:
Admin Street3:
Admin City:Machynlleth
Admin State/Province:Powys
Admin Postal Code:SY209HA
Admin Country:GB

He also links Cyberium on his sidebar.

Oh well, it's busted wide open right now. And all over the search engines as such.

    Yeah, the complaints are that I exposed it too soon before it could catch others.

  3. I just saw that when I went to the DeSmogblog. . But one of the things I really like about the blogosphere are those bloggers that check facts.

    There’s a lot of people that know a lot about different things that now create a kind of super brain through the internet. The greatest version of a “lifeline”. I thought that the name rang a bell and traced him down. It was what I thought it was. I still don’t know if it was a prank to make those that think that Global Warming is simply Al Gore’s Next Job look bad or whether it was an attempt at viral marketing for his new book.

    Regardless, I know some scientists who really have looked at what we could do if ET invaded, who also happen to be SF writers, and this would be a great viral marketing tool for them. Only, of course, they have _real_ credentials.
