This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

Earlier today, I wrote a tweet about another @Twitter promoted tweet #phishing advert and I reminded you that I had written about it a couple of week ago. link.medium.com/UXh4iZtCMR

Well, guess what has happened since this morning...?

#security #scam
Amazingly, there had been another one today, @twitter!

This time, @farahmenswear is the main hacked account and the supporting account for this #phishing #scam is incredible...
Amazingly, the supporting accounts for this #phishing #scam include @EuroParlPress - the European Parliament Press Office. This is now off-the-scale!

Maybe @guyverhofstadt or @GabrielMariya can look into what is going on?

I wrote a piece about #phishing adverts on @Twitter a couple of weeks ago. @TwitterSupport had put it about that they had it under control. Here’s the article...

#security #digitaladvertising
Incredibly, it’s still going on. This is a #safety and #privacy issue that is not being addressed by @TwitterSupport.

This time @capgemini_aust are the main target and it is EXACTLY the same promoted advert that I highlighted in my article. link.medium.com/UXh4iZtCMR
The accounts used to legitimise the #scam this time are

@BenAllenCA @azariarachel @ARTNIGHTLDN @AKIpress_com and @67Kelechi.

Once again, all of them are @verified accounts. And this is still live over half an hour after it was posted.

It’s Time Twitter Cleaned Up The #Phishing Ads

I’ve just written this. I’m passionate about Twitter - always have been. I love how it is tackling fake accounts and hoping to reduce the amount of extremism online. But these adverts should be a priority.

link.medium.com/gCqRV3BVAR
Today’s scam has roped in @patheuk, @swansladies, @sarahscoop, @angola2411, @bookmyshow_sup - last time it was @monsterjobs, @GeoffroyDidier, @wsu_womensgolf, @CarteNoireUK and @rpsgmavericks - all without their knowledge and all trying to scam people out of their #bitcoin.
Each of the accounts used in the scams are @verified and, last time this happened, I copied in @TwitterSupport so they knew it was happening. It looks like it takes about 30 mins-1 hour to take down these scams but that is long and the damage to innocent accounts lasts longer.

This is THE most incredible #scam on @Twitter yet and it raises all sorts of questions for @twitter, @verified and @jack (there goes my chance of ever getting my blue tick!!)

It starts with a promoted tweet...
You’ll notice that, on the #promoted tweet, the account name is Elon Musk and it has a blue tick... so it’s got to be legit, right?
But, if we need proof that this is a genuine offer from Elon Musk, we just have to click on that account and see his other tweets to make sure it’s him...

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their jobs properly & then decided to take the law into their own hands. The result of this decision has led to events stranger than fiction

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

#skynews #lbc #theresamay #uk #bbcnews #coverup #c4news #worldnews #ukgov
Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here ukcoverup.com/arrest-details as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed

Here is another #Scammer being busted. I hope you enjoy! Please warn others. They are planting seeds of destruction with their dishonesty. If you make it to the end I think you will be entertained.

1. The sleeping giant is slowly awakening to the corruption that is enslaving us all.

Once this giant has fully awoken we shall be unstoppable.

Public awakening is their greatest fear.

#QAnon @POTUS @realDonaldTrump
2. It’s essential that #WeThePeople understand how #Corruption in the pharmaceutical industry has a stronghold on people.

#QAnon @POTUS @realDonaldTrump
3. This long & detailed thread will shine light on corruption in the vaccine and cancer industry.

These are complicated & touchy parts of the #DeepState rabbithole for obvious reasons but facing the #Truth is very important.

The truth shall set everyone #free.

I've talked before about Russian #disinformation, and how the goal is to exploit existing divisive issues to weaken the enemy. 1 #InformationWarfare #WednesdayWisdom #CambridgeAnalytica #Russie #Putin #deza
Bernie v. Hillary, Benghazi & the "email scandal" were perfect targets. There was already tension & division on those topics, so they were easy to exploit. 2
Russia also targeted #peopleofcolor (specifically black voters) to sow distrust of Hillary & the political process, which helped Trump's campaign. 3

Over the past few months, several scam accounts have popped up that call themselves #resistance. Some ask for #donations to help impeach Trump. Some sell shirts, phone cases, etc. And there are others that ask for money for various causes. THREAD 1 #scam #donate #con #PSA
I’ve written about some before, I have a collection of threads about them here. 2

THE most corrupt people in #crypto:

@brian_armstrong
@rogerkver
@proffaustus
@JihanWu
@vinnylingham
@el33th4xor

These individuals have no principles.

None of them understand #bitcoin, yet all fight to kill that what gave them wealth and power in the first place.

Shame!
- ignores the community and rejects the importance of #segwit
- likes tweets talking about "bitcoin dethroning"
- owns more $ETH than $BTC
- never says the word "bitcoin" during public campaigns, just "blockchain" or "cryptocurrency"
- he used to sell pipe bombs on the internet, spent time in prison
- spreads lies and fud
- claims bcash is the real bitcoin
- involved in pump and dumps, korean exchanges and insider trading
- tricks users in buying bcash on his site under the name "bitcoin"

A freind came across this last night. Who is this anonymous account asking for donations to support the resistance and get Trump impeached? We started looking into it. 1 #warning #ScamAlert #con #SCAM #fraud #fake #scheme #TuesdayThoughts
If you click on the link in that tweet () this is what comes up - a PayPal donation page to Maday Media. 2 #conman #DonTheCon #swindler #scams
A Google search for Maday Media brings up a Facebook page for a German media company.
facebook.com/madaymedia/. Maday Media is a media company in Germany. 3 #suspicious
