How To Make Money Through A Covid Scam

Jamie McIntyre has been described as a “serial scammer”, a “conman” and the “the most evasive witness I have had to deal with”. When a man like this runs an anti-covid campaign, you have to ask yourself, what’s in it for him? 

Stay tuned and I’ll reveal all.

Some Of Jamie McIntyre's Highlights

Land Banking Scheme

Jamie is banned from holding corporate office or giving financial advice for a period of 10 years. His running of get rich quick seminars and running land banking schemes that defrauded investors of millions of dollars caught the attention of ASIC.

A landing banking scheme consists of taking money to buy property that you promise will be developed in the future. It’s at best highly speculative. It consists of buying worthless land on the outskits of town with the hope that it will be a development target sometime in the future. It’s a great object for a scam because you don’t have to prove the value of the land. It’s currently worthless dirt. But you’re selling the dream that some developer will want it and offer you untold riches at some point in the indeterminate future. Selling dreams like this are a scammer’s stock in trade.

Jamie spruiked his scheme at get rich seminars. At times he has “promoted increasing wealth through trading bitcoins, domain names and even blogging”, according to the Financial Review. Jamie’s scheme would take in investments of  up to $40,000, with the promise of later paying out a big windfall. The problem was Jamie, according to ASIC, was running an unlawful investment business and the company itself was insolvent. When it was wound up, investors were left out of pocket to the tune of millions of dollars.

It’s worth noting that one of the red flags that lead to Jamie McIntyre’s investigation was his association with failed get rich schemester Henry Kaye. Henry had already failed at a similar projects and was banned from managing companies for five years. An investigation by Fairfax media alerted ASIC, who the pursued Jamie through its legal channels.

Jamie cost investors around $60 million.

It should be noted that land banking itself isn’t a scam. Though it is, as I said, highly speculative. If you’ve got deep pockets and can put money away for decades, then land banking can work.

Reputable companies do it. The difference is they actually know what they’re doing. And they have deep pockets. They can afford to pay rates and other expenses on a property that they know will one day reap rewards for them. Meanwhile there’s Jamie who, according to the Fin, “he is unable to name a single land-banking scheme he has promoted that has delivered on its promises to investors.”

Land banking schemes are attractive as a scam because you’re selling something of no intrinsic value. It’s just an old bit of dirt that you promise will be worth something further down the track. You’re selling the dream that this worthless dirt will one day make money.

 

Crypto Currency

The problem with a land baking scheme, apart from Jamie being banned form giving financial advice, is that you have to actually invest some money in the stinking pile of dirty you’re pretending to flog to unsuspecting “investors”.

That’s where crypto is so great. A crypto currency is just a bunch of numbers on a screen. Or could be…

Crypto currencies like Bitcoin use a blockchain. That’s a database that is stored in little blocks in computers all over the world. If you link the blocks (hence block-chain) then you can get a complete database of all transactions. The currency is thus kind of everywhere but nowhere. Decentalization is a core fundamental of Bitcoin that makes it trustworthy and reliable. It’s not like Bitcoin is sitting on old mate’s rusty Commodore64 computer and you have to trust this guy about the value of the currency. 

Unlike some other coins I could mention.

Jamie’s first foray into Bitcoin was an exchange under the name 21st Century Bitcoin Exchange. They offered a pre-order mail-in for Bitcoin. Does that strike you as weird? Mail-in for a digital currency? Does it sound suspiciously like they were trying to take advantage of older, less digital savvy consumers? 

It’s hard to find much information about 21st Century Bitcoin Exchange because it never fucking existed. The had a breif pivot into Bitcoin ATMs but that fizzled out too. Sounds like a con but hard to prove due to the problem of it not having legs to begin with.

Politics

In 2013 Jamie ran for senate against Barnaby Joyce in New England. Controversy followed Jamie because he (allegedly) bought Twitter followers. His Twitter following blossommed to 1 million and dropped back to 100,000 in a way that experts said could not happen organically. It was estimated that only 3% of his followers were geniune. 

When confronted by his numbers Jamie played dumb. He wouldn’t even know how to buy followers he said “I am not a social media guru. I don’t know how to buy Twitter followers or get a social media following.”

But he also told Fairfax Media, “Social media is critical to our campaign . . . our only hope to compete is social media and the internet because we simply don’t have the funds of the two major parties and we don’t have the mainstream press exposure.”

Jamie did not win a senate seat. Jamie’s party was deregistered because he could not maintain the 500 members required to actually be a political part.

If Jamie did have 1 million followers on Twitter, it begs the question why 500 of them wouldn’t sign up to join his party.

 

"What you're saying is, the 100 investors who lost more than $7 million were used as some kind of stalking horse by our independent judiciary because you launched a media company that now boasts no more than 6,248 followers on Facebook and that represented a threat they had to get rid of?"

Making Money From Covid

Jamie was brought to my attention by a friend who doesn’t quite believe covid exists. He told me that Jamie was offering $5 millions to anyone who could prove covid existed. 

To which I said, “If Jamie doesn’t already have proof that covid exists then I doubt I could change his mind. What, did Russian, India, China, USA, Brasil, France, UK, Turkey, Argentina, Italy and Spain all spontaneously tell the same lie? …Moreover, do the ICU nurses and doctors lie? Do the morge attendants lie? Do the recovered patients lie? I mean…if we don’t have proof that covid exists then we have proof of nothing.”

Which probably suits Jamie just fine. As a publicity stunt, offering stupid big money to prove what has been proved so often and so conclusively is a safe bet. Clearly he doesn’t accept the already comprehensive proof, so his money is safe. There is no new data that will bring on his eureka moment, when he suddenly understands what every expert in the world has been telling him. 

But it does generate some publicity.

Selling Bullshit On Facebook

Jamie has been spruiking so much covid bullshit on his Facebook page it’s hard to know where to start. According to the theory, covid either doesn’t exist or isn’t harmful. Or is a way to control the world’s population. Or it’s the covid vaccinatioin itself that makes people sick.

Suitably vague but powerful “globalist forces” are forcing the Australian government to go along with these conflicting lies.

When I posted on Jamie’s page about his corporate failures and history of scams, much to my surprise he responded to me.

To give you some context, I’d posted a Fairfax Media article on Jamie’s timeline which reported his failed land banking scheme and 10 year ban.

He said, “James Pollock anyone they listens to fake mainstream media probably believe in the Covid fraudsters selling a falsified global pandemic and dodgy drug junkie experiment to.”

My response was, “Jamie McIntyre are you denying that you were banned for 10 years from offering financial aervices?”

To which he replied, “James Pollock not at all. I was targeted for starting Australian National Review jn 2013 and for entering politics and having polices that are a threat to the deep state control of our country
If you think our country isn’t corrupted and mainstream media have ever told the truth you are mistaken.
We are at war – so choose your side carefully- Covid fraudsters or those risking their livelihoods to defend fellow Aussies.”

Me: Jamie McIntyre are you denying that you were banned for 10 years from offering financial aervices?"

Jamie: James Pollock not at all. 

Now, thankfully I’m not a fucking idiot. I know obfuscation when I see it. This bullshit about fake media was torn down by his own response. According to that response he’s now saying the media was correct. He was targeted by the “deep state”. He has in effect abondoned the first lie and started on a second line of attack. Which straight away proves he’s liying. 

Let’s see how that goes.

I told him, “What you’re saying is, the 100 investors who lost more than $7 million were used as some kind of stalking horse by our independent judiciary because you launched a media company that now boasts no more than 6,248 followers on Facebook and that represented a threat they had to get rid of?”

As usual, Jamie didn’t address the question. He said, “Real estate in australia has made my clients $2-3 billion in profits and rising over the last two decades. Are you saying it hasn’t been a good investment? I had tens of millions of land assets stolen by the deep state and claiming $50-$100 m in compensation for myself and my investors for what was wrongly taken. But by all means Listen to the idiot box funded by Covid fraudsters. They really want the best for you. Or grow some balls and take a stand for your country.”

As lies go, these are as pathetic as any I’ve ever heard. But what I loved best in this response was the “grow some balls” ripost. I haven’t heard that kind of schoolyard taunting since…well, the schoolyard. 

Show Me The Money!

Enough of this rubbish. In today’s polarized world you’re either know a conman when you see one or you see the new messiah. Nothing I say will change that. So let’s follow the money and see if we can find out where the grift is.

Australian National Review

Jamie runs an online media aggragator posing as a news source. He posts videos from other outlets and puts the lofty title “Staff Reporter” as the reporter. Most are just videos without comment. Many have misleading headings, like the one claiming aboriginal elder Bevan Costelo dies 6 days after getting the covid jab. There is an accompanying video that does nothing to address the notion that the vaccine contributed to his demise. There is, of course, not correlation. But that’s the sort of rubbish he publishes.

Another video shows Anthony Fauci listening patiently to one of his detractors listing Fauci’s failings. Fauci, we are told, is squirming in his seat. To me, Fauci looks confidently at ease. This guy, who has been grilled in senate hearings for decades, isn’t about to be fooled by a podcaster. He politely waits without interupting as the podcaster lists his scree of misinformation. 

Fauci’s reply is then cut off. His no-doubt erudite, informed and confident reply is cut off. 

Another trick Jamie does is to credit the Covid News website for providing the an article. Covid News in turn credits a “Staff Reporter” and is such a carbon copy of Australian National Review that I assume, with great confience, that it is also owned and produced by Jamie.

Our World Coin. The crypto con.

You might be wondering by now, how does Australia National Review skim the pockets of its readers? By asking for donations.

These donations are helping Take Back Our World, a not-for-profit that is going to restore our battered democracies and national sovereignties”. 

There is a link to the Take Back Our World just to prove it is a real organisation. It has lots of articles there to prove it is real. All written by and credit to Australian News Review…

Wow, that’s such a circle of deceit. 

If donate to Jamie you not only save democracy, you also get Our World Coin (OWC) in exchange. 

For example:

if you donate over $2500 USD you will also receive 20% in Bitcoin 2.0.

Bitcoin 2.0 isn’t a thing. It doesn’t exist. I imagine he’s suggesting that OWC is Bitcoin 2.0. 

Jamie presents a contradictory picture of Bitcoin 2.0. Another of his websites, BitXchange, pretends that Bitcoin 2.0 is a thing and you can buy it. Bitcoin 2.0 is actually a bit of a shorthand people use for describing upgrades to the Bitcoin currency. It’s not it’s own product. And nor could it be. Imagine launching a company called Ford 2.0, or Microsoft 2.0. It’s not something you can do. 

There are already many alternatives to Bitcoin, such as Ethereum, Tether, and Cardano. This suggests that Jamie is again targeting those who are sufficiently gullible and lacking in knowledge to see through his crypto maze of deceptions.

I explained earlier about cyrpto currency being block chain based. Jamie’s coin is not. By his own admission, OWC doesn’t even exist. Here’s what he says:

“…the “Take back our World” Initiative, will release a crypto coin and utilise block chain technologies…”

Will release. Not has been released. Will. As in, it doesn’t exist but give me all your money and we promise this fictitious crypto will exist as some point in the inderterminate future. 

Sound familiar? 

Does it sound like an uncanny combination of his land baking and crypto schemes of the past?

According to his websites, Jamie’s currency will launch wallets in October. That’s right now!

 

fucking thief wants your money

Wow, the immedicacy. The sense urgency! (Like that’s not on the most well known sales tactics of all time.)

Funnily enough, Jamie also promised to launch in July. 

Wouldn’t we all be surpised if this was updated in September. (Massive eye roll.)

A summary of Jamie's scam

Jamie attracts people to his website by being a prominent anti-vaxxer.  Once there they can donate to the cause and get crypto in exchange. A win-win. If the cause was real. Or the currency. 

But the lies don’t stop there. There is a further layer or deception even at the point of donation. 

When you click on “Pay  / Donate Now” on Jamie’s website you’re taken to…the same page. Except this time you’re on the Our World Coin website. 

How does that work then?

What you have to do is scroll down further and use the Pay/Donate by Bank Transfer” button. It takes you to a form where you fill in your details. Your name, contact details, and the amount you want to spend. Not your bank details. 

No bank details?

I imagine if you’re running a fraud you don’t want people giving you money through a website, where it is traceable and auditable. Where it might be used as evidence in future fraud trials. 

I can also imagine that if you’re  serial conman you might want to use your skills to talk people out of more money than they otherwise might donate.

You can donate in real time using Bitcoin. (The real Bitcoin, not the fictitious Bitcoin 2.0.) Bitcoin is famously anonymous forms of payment. I can see how they might be attractive to anyone afraid to have their activities audited.

And that’s it. That’s the full scam. By harnessing the unbridled anger felt by many anti-vaxxers, Jamie converts them into donaters and crypto investors. All while promising them future returns once his currency hits the market. Given those incentives, who wouldn’t want to fight back againt the “totalitarian, communistic deadly anti democratic agenda”?
