Last April (9 months ago), I contrasted the sling and arrows of fortune as they applied to an admitted mass-murderer and one convicted of mass murder who always protested his innocence. (see Megrahi and Calley Compared and Contrasted)
Now, fully 9 months after the wholesale shock in the West at Megrahi’s early release (the personal recollectionally-challenged Vice-president Clinton was notable in her non-charitable words about all this), the journalists at the BBC have seen fit to look at the matter more closely. (see ‘Flaws’ in key Lockerbie evidence)
Well this is great! It looks like Megrahi was stitched up after all. As he has always claimed.
Another ‘expert’ has decided that there was no way that a crucial piece of evidence could have survived the bomb blast. More importantly, the evidence wasn’t examined correctly and was just assumed to be “the bit that everyone was looking for”.
For me, the absolute key piece is that Megrahi was identified by someone in Malta who did not like him, several months after the bomb blast and even longer than after he’d met him!!! In all the cases of identification evidence, this has to be the most shoddy and flimsiest I’ve ever seen!!!
But the big questions are:
Why was none of this done decades ago?
What is wrong with us and our judicial system?
Why are so many innocents convicted for BIG crimes?
Of course, someone still did the heinous deed. It just wasn’t Megrahi, that’s all. But we all know where the solution lies.
The detail of the spam content is below. Feel free to take up the offer. However, I’m too nice and pink and good to do that ….warning Will Robinson, smug alert! – actually I’m short of time at the minute but it sounds better.
The package below is valued at over $2000 when purchased individually
Megrahi: only person convicted over the Lockerbie bombing
Megrahi is a Libyan, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for murdering 270 people by blowing up a 747 over Lockerbie in Scotland – but released early after 8 years (but 10 years in prison) and sent to Libya to die of cancer.
William Calley - convicted American war criminal
Calley is an American, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment on 22 sample charges of murdering over 500 people by shooting, beatings, torture, mutilation and sexual abuse in Vietnam – but released early after 3 years and has so far lived quietly for over 35 years.
Further similarities and differences exist.
1988: wreckage of Pan Am Flight 103 in a field in Lockerbie, Scotland.
Megrahi has always said he was innocent and was convicted on one piece of clothing evidence and the say-so of a disgruntled acquaintance in Malta.
Moammar Gadhafi - Libyan Dictator
It’s been suggested that people at the highest level in Libya organised the plane bombing. Gadhafi has always remained aloof, grunted and ambiguously farted.
The evidence could have easily have been tampered with as it remained for many months in disputed, easily corruptible circumstances.
My Lai massacre
Lt Calley admitted the murders but always claimed he was acting under orders. This higher command, Ernest Medina, has always disputed this. Medina too, was tried. His trial lasted 60 mins and he was acquitted of all charges. Nevertheless, this ‘innocent’ man’s career was over.
When Calley was released by the soon-to-be-disgraced Republican President Nixon, many in the US and elsewhere were outraged and shocked. Calley was hidden from view and eventually forgotten about, except for his recent admission that he’s ‘sorry every day’ – see news link.
Along with a whole charade of political shenanigans including the notable damning silence from prime Minister Brown, Megrahi has been released to Libyan custody who immediately paraded him as a Terry Waite-like hero. The custody thing is a blur. He will die soon. Megrahi’s public statement on his release bears detailed reading. If he is telling the truth, his words are those of a patient, honourable man, restraining himself against the unjust forces of the world.
He bears no ill-will to the Scottish people, medical and prison staff.
For the victims’ relatives of the bombing, he expresses sincere sympathy.
For his trial, he expresses disillusionment at the failings of a supposedly fair system. I’ve studied his face in Amsterdam and elsewhere. This is genuine.
Now these are his actual words:
I cannot find words in my language or yours that give proper expression to the desolation I have felt. This horrible ordeal is not ended by my return to Libya.
It may never end for me until I die. Perhaps the only liberation for me will be death.
And I say in the clearest possible terms, which I hope every person in every land will hear: all of this I have had to endure for something that I did not do.
The remaining days of my life are being lived under the shadow of the wrongness of my conviction.
He finishes by saying,
I say goodbye to Scotland and shall not return. My time here has been very unhappy and I do not leave a piece of myself. But to the country’s people I offer my gratitude and best wishes.
These are not the words of a lying man. He is a disillusioned patsy, a fall-guy for bigger forces. This is the likely reason for his release. It’s as if there’s an un-written code that everyone knows but dare not admit – but it must be enacted to equalise the communal guilt of an informed nation that suspects a gross injustice.
V for Vendetta
Gadhafi, on the other hand, is laughing up his sleeve. And the rabid right in the USA just use his release as fuel for their strident cries for battle. The real power in the USA just sit tight, saving that fuel for another day, when another mass of innocents are mown down for profit in the hills of Pakistan.
Calley, exams failure of the US schools system, is right to think on his actions every day, and to think how truly lucky he is to be alive. Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori, ha ha.
Marx said, “give them enough rope and they’ll hang themselves”. In this case, this sort of pyramid/MLM/affiliate scheme has two methods of transmission. Without transmission, it’s not a business.
They spam to get their message across.
They use adwords to get their message across
Both methods lure people into their fold with promises of untold riches, health, slimness etc. The real money that is made, of course, is not in the product, it’s in selling the same thing onto someone else – ergo, a pyramid scheme.
Of course, by spamming, they expose their methods. Information, in this case, is going both ways, and this is how they hang themselves. It’s a huge slug’s trail for anyone that cares to follow it! And for Government agencies, should they care to follow the trail, under the new rules for ISPs etc, all data transmissions must be kept for a long time….
Here’s today’s spam:
Title: Be your own boss. Work from home with Google!
As CoastalDominionMedia, the owner, say in their blurb,
CoastalDominionMedia is a leading provider of direct marketing and database management solutions which enable marketers to maximize the value of their permission-based lists. Companies have the ability to increase revenues from their newsletter subscribers, customer data and prospect databases.
CoastalDominionMedia only sends email to individuals who have agreed on the Websites to receive email from CoastalDominionMedia or to individuals who have agreed on Third Party websites to receive email from Third Parties. As such, CoastalDominionMedia does not send unsolicited email messages.
The thing is, that I’ve unsubscribed from several “third party websites” as I’ve explained in previous postings. However, I never contacted CoastalDominionMedia and yet mysteriously they now have my email address, many weeks after my cancellations…
So. GrapeRepel.com, also a CoastalDominionMedia domain, (where do they dream up the names?) redirects to…
SecureCart.com 9 July 2009
An old friend, like a bent penny, it just keeps coming round and round. Check out my original Google Treasure Chest posting. At that time, the registrar was hidden. Now a Whois puts them right at the heart of the action, Orem, Utah! Obviously, since the Feds have been knocking, they feel the need for anonymity is somewhat superfluous!
This is a strategically redesigned page, similar to the previous offering in style, but without the 100% guarantee rubbish and other things.
The Google Logo is stripped out, although wording has been added to show “Google” prominently.
The countdown timer has gone
There is no contact page although details are in one of the above…
What is really striking, bearing in mind the hammering that Eborn et al have had from the FTC, is the threatening care with which the Terms & Conditions are now written.
They are trying sooo hard to ensure that anyone disagreeing with them obviously MUST have agreed to anything they do IN THESE TERMS. Here’s some samples below. By the time you reach here, the company has morphed into “Quad Group”. But watch that…(you’ll see what I mean) See what you think:
1.1 You unconditionally and expressly agree and accept the Conditions set forth herein as a binding contract…
(the word expressly appears a lot. They’ve obviously had the Thesaurus out on this one!)
3.3 You explicitly agree to the following statement: “I UNDERSTAND THAT I MAY BE LIABLE FOR PAYMENT OF FUTURE GOODS AND SERVICES UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT IF I FAIL TO NOTIFY THE SUPPLIER NOT TO SUPPLY THE GOODS OR SERVICES DESCRIBED.”
(it’s explicitly this time…)
4.1 You agree that any disputed fee will not be charged back to Your credit card issuer. You expressly agree to submit in writing any objection regarding fees to 230 West 400 South, Suite 100 S.L.C. UT. 84101 or call Customer Care at 1-866-511-2427
This means that they are shit scared of the chargebacks! This is obviously their Achilles Heel, as Chris Malta makes plain in his video. Notice the expressly again? !!
4.2 Go Web Biz, in its sole discretion, shall determine the validity of Your objection and notify You of its decision. Should You disagree with Go Web Biz’s decision, You agree to mediate the dispute before litigation.
Oh hang on. It’s Go Web Biz now, is it? And they are judge and jury for any disagreement…. Hmm. What happened to United States law? Oh yes. It’s Utah. They don’t count that…
4.3 You agree to indemnify Quad Group for any financial harm or any losses caused by Your objections to fees that does not comply with this Agreement. You will be held responsible for the reimbursement of any fees and losses incurred as a result of Your failure to comply with any provision in this Agreement.
Er… Now it’s Quad Group. So it starts asStartup Biz Kit, and when the nitty-gritty comes round we have Quad Group – or is itGo Web Biz? And I’m supposed to pay them for any damages if I object to their crap “rules”….???
Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha.
I don’t think so. I doubt you do either. The whole T&C is exactly like this. What they are trying to get you to agree to, is to throw away all your rights under common law, tort law, consumer law – you name it.
In essence, you become their cash slave.
The Google Treasure Chest King is Dead. Long Live the King!
My email spambuster Mailwasher Pro is doing overtime since I posted my investigation into Google Treasure Chest and the Robert G Allen Grants swindle. In this second investigation, I showed how the email spam system links the various scam systems together. That is:
By signing up for one sytem, I started receiving email spam from all the various scams around even though they all have the mantra “we hate spammers as much as you do” and they all include privacy policies which expressly state that no email address is shared with anyone else….except third parties!
Bollocks! Of course, my interest was started with Google Treasure Chest, and then I issued a sequence of posts detailing my ever deepening investigations into these scum bastards and their rotten activities.
EMail Spam Reduction – temporarily!
Last week, a malware server was taken offline that had a small impact on the amount of spam I received. (see Methinks the ISP doth Protest Too Much). I reckon the rubbish went down to about 75% of the previous week’s level. In fact, because my Robert G Allen Grants swindle post focussed so much on resourcehurtcentral.com I actually noticed it in my spam by it’s absence!
resourcehurtcentral.com back in the Spam Game
Well I can tell you, it’s back now!
So I decided to see where one of the new spam points…
[email protected] is where the spam notionally comes from. This is despite the fact that I’ve ‘unsubscribed’ from their mailings -twice! So where do they want me to go?
And of course, that’s not the destination – I immediately got redirected to:
This page is worth ignoring, if you are feeling at all suicidal and want to give all your hard-earned money away to twats, that is!!! Otherwise, pay careful attention. NOW!
Firstly, it’s called Google Money Master at the top of the page.
The design is awfully like that of the original Google Treasure Chest signup page at securecartcenter.com
It says “As seen and trusted on Google, CNBC, USA Today, ABC, CNN & Yahoo!” – believe that if you will!
Now compare this with the statement at the bottom of the page which states “The trademarks in this image are owned by their respective owners who do not endorse this product. Google Revolution, LLC is not affiliated with, endorsed by or in any way associated with Google.”
From this, we can safely take it that they are only afraid of Google and don’t care a toss for the rest!
Now, please continue, and while carefully noting the 100% Trusted banner, check out the Terms & Conditions link at the bottom. You’ll have noticed the Matrix-like title “Revolution”. It’s about the same – what goes around comes around.
The T&Cs are now a bit more technical and a bit more frightening since the Google Treasure Chest days. e.g. take a look….
Initiation of a complaint or chargeback against Google Revolution for products or services rendered constitutes a severe breach of this Agreement. A “complaint or chargeback” shall be defined as initiating any form of complaint or chargeback with your credit card issuer or bank. Upon receipt of a complaint or chargeback, or threat thereof, Google Revolution will immediately deactivate all Services provided to the Customer, and immediately begin chargeback reversal (anti-fraud) procedures. In the event we lose the chargeback reversal procedures, we will immediately send to collections the full disputed amount in addition to an administrative fee of five hundred dollars ($500.00 USD). Please note that threats of a complaint or chargeback will be treated the same as an actual complaint or chargeback. In all cases, violation of this clause will result in cancellation of all Services provided to the Customer, regardless of services disputed.
This is their way to counter the recommendation by all of the anti-scammer websites to immediately initiate a chargeback against the company to recover your scammed money!
My personal recommendation is to carry on doing this, as recommended by Chris Malta’s scam tips. Cancel your card, get a chargeback and show your card company the scammy “Terms and Conditions” that this supposed company imposes.
Remember – just because someone writes something down as a Term & Condition for a service, doesn’t actually make it legal. You did realise, of course, that by reading this far you now owe me £1 million??? – I thought not! Well that’s my terms & condition for reading this post. Do you think it’s legal? Obviously not. It’s complete bollox isn’t it? Same goes for the Google bollox too!
You will also note that Google Revolution is owned by:
Honshu Systems, LLC

Q.Now when do you think Spring Systems Limited was registered?
A. On 29/5/2009 – about two weeks ago!
It’s pretty clear that this really is a scam, and if not directly a continuation of Google Treasure Chest, Money Tree, Acai Berries, Grants or Green tea scams – it’s using exactly the same methods.
In searching for a reason for the profusion of contacts in County Durham, UK, I’m reminded of a sweet-faced Geordie bint I recently saw promoting Carbon Copy Pro, a similar MLM/pyramid type thing. My personal knowledge tells me that this part of England is like the Wild West at times. I’m from that area!
….Nevada still is, by the look of it! The sheer quantity of new scam business operating with apparent impunity and disregard for the law shows that the Nevada & Utah law enforcers can’t keep a lid on this.
That’s my definition of the Wild West – when laws are not enforced.
The County Durham UK connection is interesting and there are further co-incidences with the smoking gun of lawlessness and criminality that is Nevada, Utah and County Durham…
Over the last couple of days the strangest thought has plagued me. Two simple ugly words have kept emerging, only for me to lock them out and ridicule them as bizarre. Simon’s dead. Just to write it down feels like … Continue reading →
