FBI – Louisville, Kentucky

By: Cristal M Clark 

Meet Mark Mark Espinosa, 29, who was working for GardaWorld when he went missing on Dec. 5, 2018 near the Jefferson Mall in Louisville, Kentucky.

gardaworld-crimeshop

No Mark did not end up the victim of a kidnapping.

Apparently, Mark decided it would be more financially to just vanish from work, with around $850,000 and then subsequently, skip town.

mark-espinosa-1-crimeshop

Not only did he just stroll off the job with the money, he also just strolled away from his family who is cooperating with investigators in an effort to track this highly intelligent individual down.

Understandably, Mark was let go from his position at GardaWorld and investigators have stated that all signs point to Mark having carefully planned this theft out.

Good Old Mark has been charged with theft of an interstate shipment and a federal warrant was issued for his arrest on Dec. 10.

Take a good look at Mark

espinosacollage-crimeshop

Mark is described as a 5-foot-10 inch white male between 230 to 235 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. Mark has a large scar on his right arm from his shoulder to his elbow, and a scar on one shoulder.

Investigators said he has ties to the Northeast, and family members on the West Coast, and in Texas and Florida.

Anyone with information on the case is urged to contact the FBI field office in Louisville at 502-263-6000.

Vladimir Putin – Has Compromising Intel on Donald Trump

donald-trump-border-crisis-crimeshop

This isn’t New News!

By: Cristal M Clark 

Over the weekend quite a few news agencies started to report that mounting evidence has revealed Vladimir Putin does in fact have something or quite a few somethings on Donald Trump.

Putin-hypersonic-missiles-Crimeshop

This is far from new intel much less breaking news.

facepalm-crimeshop

Over a year ago, I broke this headline.

One Donald Trump, the President of the United States has been the subject of a counterintelligence investigation.

Who didn’t see that coming?

Better yet, who didn’t already know that was actually happening?

trumpy-bear-crimeshop

Trumps ties to a hostile power were so significant that it means that he was most likely influenced and/or compromised by another country, that country being Russia.

vladimir-putin-russia_crimeshop

The fact is that Putin has had something or several things on Trump for years and because of that, Trump is Putin’s puppet.

2015 US Open, Day 9 - Melania Trump

The FBI and other agencies, had no other choice but to investigate.

Trump has a lot to hide, but the question is, how much longer can he or Putin hide everything?

us-election-russia-hack-crimeshop

Our intelligence agencies, not just the FBI are quickly and quietly closing in on both Trump and Putin.

Which is the more fascinating part of the situation with Trump, Putin and Russia.

Everyone thinks that is it just Robert Mueller or the FBI investigating.

If that is what you believe, you couldn’t be more wrong.

This investigation, it’s layers and so to are those investigating.

Both Putin and Trump might want to take a really big step back and ponder that one for a moment or two.

fat-ass-trump-crimeshop

Trump may be the President of the United States, but he is not being protected by anyone in our intelligence communities.

Rather, Trump has found himself the subject of an investigation, by all of them and when those details break…well it will make for some very interesting times.  

Neither Trump nor Putin are going to be safe from those findings.

South Carolina Police Chief Arrested

BLAIRSHAFFER-crimeshop.jpeg

Manning, S.C. – Good Boy Gone Bad

By: Cristal M Clark 

Sometimes even the good can go bad and by bad, a former S. Carolina police chief was investigated and arrested for theft by the FBI.

fbi-south-carolina-crimeshop

The theft?

Gary Blair Shaffer managed to steal roughly $78,000 from the city of Manning back in 2015, most of which was money that had been seized from people accused of dealing illegal drugs, naturally.

The charges also included money laundering, which really is not that surprising I mean, if you are going to steal from the till, one would need to attempt to launder it so as not to get, what is that word I am looking for?

That’s right, so as not to get “caught,” by the FBI.

According to the indictment: Gary carefully deposited the money into multiple accounts and then subsequently lied about his actions when questioned in 2016 and then in 2017.

Gary by the way was as fired in July 2018 over “safety concerns” but, his employee file includes no reprimands or inappropriate behavior during his more than two decades with the department.

Maybe whomever filled out his termination paperwork became caffeine deprived (as a highly qualified expert on the matter, it can happen) and confused “theft and money laundering” with “safety concerns.”

Gary has plead not guilty to the charges and was able to make bail, I mean of course he made bail he padded his own paycheck.

Just goes to show you that yes, sometimes, even the good can go bad.

Google Letting Users Know the FBI has Requested User Data

LuminosityLink-crimeshop

LuminosityLink – Colton Grubbs

 

Google has begun the tedious process of letting some users know that the FBI had requested their user data according to what users are saying on Reddit and HackForums.

google-crimeshop

“Google received and responded to legal process issue by Federal Bureau of Investigation (Eastern District of Kentucky) compelling the release of information related to your Google account,” read an email sent to users.

fbi-crimeshop

Now don’t go into a panic or anything because this only affects specific users that are tied to the Colton Grubbs case.

Colton was one of the creators of LuminosityLink which was a remote access tool that was as luck would have it, marketed as a hacking tool that could control computers remotely.

And the Grubbs case was investigated in the same district as the FBI request is stemming from. The case is still under seal and some of the users who reported to receiving the email, well they purchased the hacking software.

Google can elect notify users of government requests when allowed to do so.

Wait, Offering to Murder President Trump?

kill-trump-crimeshop.jpeg

Whose up for a little game of Murder Donald Trump?

I have to admit, that while I am not Donald Trump’s biggest fan, in fact I could really go for an old-fashioned impeaching here, suggesting or offering to murder the president is a wee bit much for me.

antifa-threatens-to-kill-trump-crimeshop.jpeg

That’s a pill that I am not willing to support or even consider swallowing.

US agents, are already seeking a Kentucky man for posting death threats against the President back in June on Facebook of all places.

In the past year since the violence in the Charlottesville riots, the left has gotten to a point where they are becoming a real concern.

anti-trump-antifa-crimeshop.jpeg

They have threatened to harm/kill Trump Officials, ICE agents, Boarder Control, police officers, children.

Even a former Bernie Saunders staffer took the chance to open fire on a group of Republican congressmen who were practicing baseball.

beat-trumps-ass-crimeshop.jpeg

This past Sunday which marked the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville riots, the progressives, anarchists and black bloc thugs decided to get together and collectively and quite openly threaten to Murder President Donald Trump – On Camera!

antifa-kill-trump-crimeshop.jpeg

The group is lovingly called Antifa.

Some would argue that the group is traditionally made up of the mistreated, repressed, held down and under privileged and the group does stand against the Neo Nazis/white supremacy.

But…Let’s be honest here.

throw-the-bell-at-trump-crimeshop.jpeg

Violence begets violence.

piss-on-trump-crimeshop.jpeg

If you are not tolerant of the Neo Nazis, you are a hypocrite for making your own threats of violence against specific types individuals, groups, races or people who share a common belief in something.

fuck-trump-up-crimeshop.jpeg

Period and end of story.

These threats from Antifa from this past weekend, should have everyone concerned.

Especially when those threats target the President of the United States.

The reality is, it also makes that cause less worth listening to or paying attention to.

How can anyone take them seriously?

The point they are driving home for me is that since they are not getting their way, they are going to threaten to or actually behave violently in an effort just to prove a point.

They just want what they want or else, they will make serious threats of violence which will escalate into actual acts of violence.

That is not a guess it is inevitable.

No war was ever truly won once you get to the bottom of things.

Each side that participated lost far more than they ever gained, not to mention that war is usually brought on because one side or the other wants something, in other words some form of greed or one or more sides of that war want to control something.

Being an ever-evolving species should we not be evolving away from the likes of violence whenever possible?

We are attempting to evolve here, at least for many.

Sadly, that cannot be said for all.

And I get it, Trump is the lying, cheating, racist, hateful, womanizing, bigot, running the United States into the ground, turning the White House into a trailer park full of trash, and filled the swamp with more scum than we could ever handle and the man responsible for ruining our relationships with other nations and countries.

Got it, that is duly noted.

Still, the same, by offering to kill The President, threatening violence, spreading hate, the world who is watching us, sees us as exactly like the man some are now delightfully offering to murder.

If you support that, then you are also, no better than President Trump.

When one makes threats to harm someone and people show support for that, you are basically advertising that you are all for violence, mayhem and murder so long as it is getting you and the masses precisely what it is that you want.

Groups like this much like a terrorist group are pushing their own beliefs on us all or they will kill for them.

Tell me why in the hell we would want to stop the Mexican Cartels? I mean they are all for the violence and death they cause because, it is getting them what they want.

The same could be said for IS, the Taliban and all other terrorist groups, because they are just another group killing in order to get what it is that they want after all.

If you support groups like Antifa then you cannot very well condemn the cartels or any of the many terrorist groups around.

And all of this killing started with mere threats to do so from the Cartels, the terrorist groups.

They all kill in the name of getting simply what it is that they want and the cold hard facts about that are, they each started the killing, by killing their own prior to taking it to a worldwide level.

In short, is Antifa not just another terrorist group?

domestic-terrorism-usa-crimeshop

Under the 2001 USA Patriot Act, domestic terrorism is defined as “activities that (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the U.S. or of any state; (B) appear to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.”

fbi-crimeshop

Yes, FBI I am looking your way, get them on a terror group list now rather wait until they do something really stupid here.

Oh, wait yes, I see we have to wait for them to actually start killing Americans who do not share in their beliefs.

Sorry Mr. President but not even a threat or offer to murder you by a group of individuals who want to force others to stand with them or die can get them the coveted title of “terrorist group,” until someone is killed.

If these guys want to fight for something fight for the right to run for office and do a better job than Trump is, undo his ugliness or support someone who believes the opposite of Trump and his kind rather than grow the hate and violence.

So, the idiot award of the week actually goes to Antifa, for showing us all that you are not an evolving species but rather a group of children who suffer from anger management issues because you are not getting what you want.

Congrats.

Hackers – Hacking ATM’s?

Dollar Bills

ATM Cash-Out Goes World Wide

The Krebs Cybersecurity blog reported on Sunday of a new threat to the worlds banks.

Hackers are now able to hack bank or payment card processors and use the stolen information to withdraw large sums of cash from ATM’s pretty much everywhere.

Which can be done without the benefit of actual malware.

fbi-crimeshop

The FBI shared this information with the banking industry on Friday which they typically do from time to time as cyber threats come about, it’s known as a “private industry alert.”

wells-fargo-steals-from-customers-crimeshop

The FBI is not required to make a public PSA about such cybersecurity threats but with the way Wells Fargo rips off its customers from the inside, one would think that the FBI would at the very least inform consumers of the threat considering that it would take someone like Wells Fargo years to report that customer bank accounts had been wiped out by hackers.

Wells-Fargo-Protest-crimeshop

Not to mention refund it, they like to well let’s just say, sit on money.

Just throwing out facts based off of the way certain banks treat their customers.

brian-krebs-crimeshop

In the meantime, since the financial industry and the FBI did not send out a warning to consumers, thankfully Brian Krebs did.

FBI To Be Closed?

Broken-FBI-Crimeshop.jpg

Judicial Watch’s Chris Farrell Seems To Think They Should!

In light of this last week’s mass shooting, Judicial Watch Director of Investigations, one Chris Farrell seems to think that the FBI should just shutter up shop and close for good.

Chris-Farrell-Judicial-Watch-CrimeShop.jpg

What’s more is that Chris is blaming Christopher Wray, the current Director of the FBI for failing to protect America.

Christoper-Wray-CrimeShop.jpg

Which is totally laughable to me, correct me if I am wrong here but isn’t our entire government failing America these days?

At any rate, to be fair the FBI was warned at least twice about the Florida shooter, Nikolas Cruz making deadly threats, within the last 6 months.

I believe it was a year or so ago that I wrote a piece about known, felons who are also gang members living in Chicago, who were legally waltzing into gun shops and purchasing guns, so it’s not like the FBI isn’t failing all over the board here.

Right?

Before everyone answers yes, let us take a step back and look at the black and white here.

Sure we expect the FBI to kick in a mans door and take his weapons when we want it, not necessarily when it actually needs to happen.

This is a discussion I have a lot with my dad, who if you’ll recall from past articles does not feel that it is a doctors business as to whether or not he owns a gun, he also does not feel that the government should be allowed to decide who owns guns and who doesn’t.

Please, entertain me and wrap your head around that for a second. How many gun rights activists can’t seem to have the brains enough to fathom that yet they are pro-gun ownership?

It’s clearly time for a reality check and it is time that when we tell the government that we expect them to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous individuals that we finally allow for them to kick in a mans door and take said legally purchased weapons when that individual shows clear signs of instability.

I make no apologies here, we scream and cry for justice and protection yet we are the biggest hypocrites of all when it comes to actually enabling the government and all of it’s agencies in particular law enforcement at all levels to actually prevent mass shootings by restricting the ability to do so behind gun rights.

CIA Manages to Let Classified Records Slip Out The Door

 

CIA-2-CrimeShop.jpg

 

Jerry Chun Shing Lee Arrested for Keeping Classified Records

Once again one of America’s spy agencies has managed to lose classified records.

I am not sure if I should be surprised or just laugh at this juncture, these agencies just cannot seem to keep classified information from slipping right out of the front door.

CIA-CLASSIFIED-DOCUMENTS-crimeshop

After Jerry left the CIA in 2012, he more or less kept classified intel that should not have left with him.

FBI-Search-Warrant-CrimeShop

The FBI had obtained a warrant for ‘unknown’ (but a little bird told me it was because Jerry, was suspected of compromising Chinese Informants) reasons and searched his luggage at a hotel room after Jerry had flown with his family from Hong Kong to Northern Virginia.

Upon the search that was conducted for again, ‘unknown’  reasons the FBI found a couple of handwritten notes that may have contained the names and numbers of covert CIA employees and the locations of covert facilities.

CIA-Top-Secret-CrimeShop

Of course after the CIA looked into the situation and discovered that in fact, Jerry had intel that was both secret and top secret in nature.

Oddly, Jerry had been interviewed on 5 separate occasions prior to his arrest by the FBI and failed during each and every interview to disclose that he had these handwritten books.

Top-Secret-CIA-CrimeShop

Jerry was a case officer for the CIA from 1994-2007 where he was trained in surveillance detection, recruiting, handling assets, and the handling of classified information (which he learned well considering his arrest), and he worked at several overseas offices.

Jerry has not been charged with espionage, he has only been charged with illegal retention of documents.

Again, it’s anyone’s guess as to whether or not Jerry had any intention of using the information in order to turn a profit regardless of the fact that he is suspected of compromising informants, he has not been proven guilty yet.
Then Again, maybe he did because perhaps his retirement plan was a little too lean for his comfort level.

Ohio Hacker Charged with Child Pornography

 

fruitfluy-malware-crimeshop

 

MacOS Malware Used for Child Porn, Computer Fraud and Wiretapping

phillip-durachinsky-CrimeShop

28 year old Phillip Durachinsky has been accused of and charged with computer fraud, wiretapping and child pornography after authorities learned the man had hacked cameras and microphones to both spy on and recorded things that he should not have.

computerhacking_crimeshop

Aside from spying on both people and companies, Phillip was so brazen that he hacked into schools and a U.S. Department of Energy subsidiary and he even spied on a police department.

Where the story takes on a pretty sick twist is where Phillip recorded individuals engaging in sex, some which where underage individuals.

According to court documents, Phillip often made it a habit of recording those that he spied on, collecting thousands and thousands of images, as well as being able to access tax, medical and banking records of the unlucky individuals and organizations that he spied on from 2003-2017.

Yes, you read that right, 14 years in total.

macos-crimehop

Phillip used FruitFly, a specific malware that is used to target Mac’s, a spyware used to surveille person through mac’s, more specifically watching them through their webcam or camera.

Phillip had been installing the malware onto PC’s for years and once on an individual’s PC, the malware was able to reach out and make contact with others, like the PC’s of businesses, schools, a police department and of course a subsidiary of the U.S. Department of Energy.

Once running, FruitFly was able to steal files, passwords, turned on cameras and microphones.

In some cases, FruitFly would alert Phillip if and when an individual computer were being used to search for porn by a victim.

Court documents indicate that thousands of computers had been infected and comprised and while watching and listening to those that he spied on, this brilliant man took notes, yes he took the time to take down notes with regards to what he heard or saw. 

MacBook-Malware-FruitFly-crimeshop

I know what you are thinking, FruitFly should only be able to work on MacOS right?

Phillip, it seems was able to develop a Windows version which explains how so many PC’s were infected in the end.

As to the child porn charges, while the DOJ has not released much with regards to those charges, it appears that from Oct, 2011 – Jan 2017 Phillip recorded underage teens having sex, recordings he knew he could either share or sell, recordings he knew would be shared.

So how did the DOJ finally catch up with Phillip?

In January of last year, Phillip was accused of hacking into computers at Case Western Reserve University. Upon investigating the complaint against Phillip, the FBI had discovered that the computers had in fact been infected for several years.

This serves as a great way to open the door to some dialogue.  

It doesn’t matter what OS you might be on, just because you think you are safe, you may not be.

We can always count on one individual at the very least, who will be able to develop malware or some way so as to infect whatever OS they desire.

Developers may want to get better at patching things up, closing back-doors, creating devices and software that are smart enough to block infected software, ads and files, or at the very least, ensuring that we cannot be hacked as easily as we currently are.
