Feds chase treasure hunter turned fugitive
I just saw this interesting story from the Associated Press about the feds chasing a successful treasure hunter 'turned fugitive' who disappeared with millions worth of gold bars and left a certain book behind for the FBI to find. I thought it worth sharing.

prepaid debit cards & hotels
Will hotels accept a prepaid debit cards, and if so what form of ID will they also want (if any)?


Debt Card
Can you get a debt card in another name?

Only if you have a bank account in another name.

#10796 Black Phone
Here is a link for an extensive review of the "BLACK PHONE". It is well worth reading, especially for those that give privacy high value.

What to do about a sister posting my pics and birthday info. on FACEBOOK?
What should I do about an older sister posting recent and childhood pics of me, along with my name, birthday and other personal info.? She's the type of sheeple who proudly wears her corporate ID badge around her neck after work.

I assume you have already told her in the strongest possible terms that all that info MUST be removed, and she refused.

If she will not listen to you, her brother, then there is nothing I or any reader can suggest, other than throwing her under a bus, and that would be illegal. :-)

dumb phone
What is the best pre paid dumb phone and where can I get one asap, thanks


10796 - Blackphone and VoIP's
Marianne -

The Blackphone is under serious scrutiny by thousands of parties who would like to find an issue. That's a positive thing.

Issues have been discovered, reported, and fixed in a timely manner. Those who have them, have reported positively on the handset, software, and customer service.

"Red Phone"... I don't know.

Both Magic Jack and Vonage ARE VoIP services.

Clear, simple instructions for routing either via TOR and/or VPN's - where possible - have not been found. Maybe another reader can help?



Marathons
1. Depends on the organizer.
Can you use initials?

2. Yes - though sometimes information about those who participate (in any way) leaks out, and the organizers receive no compensation.

Few, if any, take positive steps to secure the information gathered.



#10791 Blackphone/Red Phone
Marianne -

1) Yes, both Blackphone and Merkel's phone contact the closest tower and can be tracked in the manner described in the article. So can Obama's.

When you can't defend, you should confuse the opposition. There are (relatively expensive and inconvenient) creative ways to use the global cellular communications system without being tracked.


2) The program mentioned in the article requires only the telephone's number.



Business Checking
How do I open a business checking account with an LLC from Rosie without providing EIN etc? How do have a PRIVATE account?

Without using a nominee? Can't be done in the USA.

Running a marathon
I wish to run a marathon but I'm worried about my privacy. I assume all runners have to present photo ID to prevent cheating.

1. Does anybody know how closely the name on your application must match your ID?

2. Do the race organizers sell your info?

3.Is there a way to opt out of your name and race results from being displayed on the race website?

Thank you!



Purchasing A Car Through An LLC!
I am interested in purchasing a car but not under my name. How will I be able to purchase a car and register it without using my name? Hopefully this question has not been answered yet.

1. Buy and read HOW TO BE INVISIBLE.

2. Then contact Rosie@senoritarosie.com

phone security again
The black phone's marketing is to claim that it is actually the best, but they claim the same about the red phone that a German company developped for Mrs. Merkel after the NSA scandal.

But the question is, if what Drake mentioned would allow to locate a blackphone/redphone too?

Also, if the receiver's calls are monitored by a PI, could the phones from a black phone be traced back to the location of the caller, even if the phone is on nobody's name?


I also wonder if someone here knows of a provider in Europe that allows call forwarding on prepaidphones?



#10788 cell phone surveillance
Re: #10788 cell phone surveillance

From reading what's available on the Internet (and reviews) it sounds like the "Black Phone" is the best you can get in terms of security.



Post office and packafes
Hi-
I am considering getting a PO Box. My post office, for an extra fee, will accept packages (UPS, Fed Ex, etc), which seems to eliminate the need for a "ghost address" for packages. Do you see any problem with this?

Other than giving them your email address, no.

response to #10789
The surveys are found at the bottom of store receipts from stores like Walmart, Kroger, staples, etc. The surveys are run for three months at a time then shifted to another chain of stores. The information is updated on the online data brokers/people search engine (ODB/PSE) once every 90 to 180 days so it takes a little time for it to begin to appear. Any warranty card does the same thing.


Q Succession + Comments
Hi Mr. Luna:
I've been an avid follower
of yours since you were a guest on the ol G Gordon Liddy show. I have most of your books and follow your blog and Q&A, follow your advice and use a few of my own ideas.

Ever since your operation, I've been wondering how far along your "trainee"
is in taking over (I know handing over the reins after building up a business is tough). You, your services and website are valuable.

Most people don't think about privacy stuff, but I think many people are starting to get scared of government agencies answerable only to themselves, criminal gangs, hackers and commercial intrests always wanting too much information "for our files".

If government or law enforcement computer programs' finger a citizen for suspicious behavior, that is "in the file" and not going away in our lifetime. The cost of keeping data is low and the cost of purging obsolete data along with inaccurate, useless, lies, rumors, etc. is lots higher AND hard to do intelligently (means its not gonna happen).

Thank you again for all your efforts!

Cal


Wow-- the G. Gordon Liddy show? That was 14 years ago!

As for training someone to carry on--that did not work. It was a mistake to even attempt such an impossible project.

#10788 cell phone surveillance
Dear Jack,

Do you or one of your readers know if the so called 'Black phone' or the application 'red phone' are safe or if they can be detected by this cross border msthod too?

Any experience with using magic jack or vonage. and route it via Tor and VOIP?

Seems we will have to learn to make smoke signs that stretch over seas and continents...



E911 addresses
I talked to the local planning office in a Virginia county about getting a 911 address for a piece of undeveloped property. Turns out I can't get an address until the footers are dug and then some county official who needs something to do geo-locates the house and plots coordinates in some county data base.
Scary, what this means is that your house is easily targeted for a drone strike by anyone who gets access to the data base. Any old infantryman knows you don't bivouac at any obvious location�a cross roads, a lone farm house-- as they would be obvious artillery and mortar registration points. No your new bedroom will be one, too.
I will try to see if this is the policy for other Virginia counties and would be interested to know if other states do it the same way. 911 addresses are just a way to monitor citizens under the guise of protecting them with fire and rescue service.



Disinformation
You recently sent an email with an excellent suggestion from someone on how to complete surveys and other online and offline data requests with false information in order to feed the databases with conflicting and bogus information. I thought this was a great idea in order to further obscure any potential leaks to my privacy.

I'd be very interested in hearing from you or other readers on sources for these surveys.
