The next Dotcom scam, and they’ve all fallen for it

Joining the dots

Joining the dots

You may have heard that “a hacker” or “hackers” had taken down the on-line gaming servers needed by Xbox and Playstation yesterday.

Why would you care?

Essentially it was done by overloading these servers in a flood of incoming traffic so that the players could no longer connect.

How does this connect to your life?

Next thing you know, Kim Dotcom is talking to the hacker via Twitter.

Isn’t that amazing in itself?   He does get around, our Kimmie.

NEXT thing you know, he makes a deal with the hacker to stop these attacks.

NEXT thing you know, the hacker goes, “ok!”, and the attack stops.  


Unlike the on-line and world-wide main stream media who fell for this scam hook line and sinker, I’ve been a student of Dotcom’s life and his Modus Operandi.   This is a confidence scam, and nobody’s called him on it.


As we all know, and Kim Dotcom has himself admitted, he’s in the business of hacking things.   And he’s in contact with the people that form these underground hacking networks.  He was involved in the Whaleoil hack too.  (Give it time, it will all come out).

Let’s see what is more likely in your mind.

Case 1:

  • Some unknown group of people run attacks against Sony and Microsoft gaming servers
  • Kim Dotcom uses these, so he has his already sad and limited life is seriously interfered with
  • Kim Dotcom manages to contact these people, and offers a fairly lame deal – something that is of little value to the hackers who can take and use free storage, processing and services wherever they like.
  • Without any sign of negotiation, or explanation, or any other demand, the hacker says “Deal!”
  • Kim Dotcom saves Christmas!

Case 2:

  • Kim Dotcom is bitter, angry and he has a mind with too much time on his hands
  • He comes up with an idea that if he and his mates take down the Microsoft and Sony game servers, he can come in and “save the day”
  • Kim needs image repair, good PR, and needs to be seen as a likable rogue on the right side of the law
  • In the end, all it really turned out to be was a confidence scam that provided advertising for the company he still has a financial interest in, as well as allows him to try and show himself to be a nice guy

And he would be, if it wasn’t all a set-up from the start.

The “Lizard Squad” and Kim Dotcom are in this together.   This whole story is as genuine as the email that “proved” John Key knew about Kim Dotcom before he said he knew about Kim Dotcom.

You win Kim, because I doubt that even my powers are able to convince the gullible media out there that you’ve run a scam on them.  Again!
