Thanks to Bpaw, and the Slyck team, and of course Andy! (soz)
Receiving a letter from TCYK LLC, and noting that the payment had to go to a different compay called “Ranger Bay Limited”, I was intrigued, especially as I read on and noted that I could visit the Ranger Bay website as stated, “…. you may also ﬁnd it helpful to refer to the list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) and Notes on Evidence which can be found at this website http://rangerbay.co.uk/
I thought, hmmm, now this all looks rather familiar. The “Notes on evidence” tab did not work, and required a password, however on closer inspection, the actual file DID NOT EXIST, how embarrassing for them. The FAQ section was most definitely something I had seen before, (maybe it was a template FAQ, you say), I pondered then thought, “Aha, yes”, I have seen that FAQ on……. http://copyrightcollectionsltd.com/ Copyright collections Limited (Patric Acache ex of Guardaley and the Anti-Piracy Management Company)
Registrant Name: Patrick Achache (Guardaley)
Registrant Address: 20-22, Wenlock Road, London England, N1 7GU (Same as Ranger Bay)
This seems an aborted plan that farted and crapped itself on the launchpad (when we started to first look at it and posted some stuff on slyck forums), it now seems to be just a blog posting lame stuff from other websites, the “Intellectual property” it allegedly owned/owns it seems has now been passed on to another tentacle of the beast (Data Protection Laws , anyone)
What is more fascinating though is that we looked into Copyright Collections Limited as it had a link to Julian Becker of Golden Eye International (GEIL) infamy, and indeed included billing to “Goldeneye” within its website,
(Since removed, will post when I find a capture). Please see here, as promised. Screen Capture (Highlight mine), see here (Original FAQ) and here (Prensent FAQ with reference to Goldeneye removed). Can we REALLY believe this is NOT the same “Goldeneye”, as Goldeneye International? You decide.
This is a snapshot of the ACS:LAW website, the company that TCYK LLC, Golden Eye International and MICM(Mircom), have absolutely nothing to do with (*cough* *Bullsh*t*), strange then that their practice bears such a striking resemblance.
The Golden Eye International Limited, run by Pornographers Julian Becker and Lindsay Honey (Ben Dover), seem to have their fingers in many other pies.(excuse the unavoidable pun).
All the above companies have connections with Mr Becker.
Who is TCYK LLC? Why do the defendants have to pay their “compensation” to another company called Ranger Bay Limited? Who are Ranger Bay Limited? Confused? So were we, but then that is the plan, smoke and mirrors folks, smoke and mirrors.
Lets see if we can unpick this tangled sordid web shall we?
So TCYK LLC send out a letter, this comes from a company called;
HATTON AND BERKELEY.COM
Registrant Name: Robert Croucher @RobertCroucher
They go through the usual, “We represent Blah Blah Blah, and your connection has infringed our copyright, you need to explain why that is, and if you cant prove that you didn’t do it, you have to pay us “compensation” to our clients, to the tune of £400 -£600″
BUT they say, you must send the “compensation” to
Ranger Bay Limited
Registrant Name: Marcus Auton
Registrant Address: 20-22, Wenlock Road, London England, N1 7GU (Same as Copyright Collections Ltd)
So far so strange…….
Who is Marcus Auton?
Not to deep a search and what do we have? https://www.justgiving.com/Marcus-Auton/ (Oh, nothing there, looks like it has been removed Hmmm). A little more digging and some searching, and we found this, interesting piece.
Marcus Auton is fundraising for The Langdon Foundation
We thought, that is strange, seen that charity before, who did a charity bike ride?, ahh yes, Julian Becker, surely not connected though, well, yes actually, https://www.justgiving.com/Julian-Becker.
It also appears that someone tried to hide the fact of the registering of ranger-bay.co.uk, originally it was ranger-bay.com, and that had Marcus Auton as Registrants name, but guess who as the Technical Advisor? Yep Julian Becker.
So the files that we spoke about earlier, of which are “Password Protected” are actually links to yet another website. This website is one of real infamy, run by Patrick Achache, who is notorious around the World as a Copyright Troll.
Guardaley from which http://rangerbay.co.uk/ are linking their documents, came to infamy when their “Business Plan” was leaked to the World, in which the owner Patrick Achache mentions the following about their “Forensic Expert”.
“paragraph 2 in regards to software consultant (i.e., he can talk about software issues), & we’re hoping the judge won’t question his qualifications too much.“
Oh, and just in case you may have heard the name Patrick Achache of Guardaley before, you might if you had been following the ACS:LAW saga, he was Terence Tsangs friend in Germany . This is covered in more depth in this article, strange world eh?
Just how is Becker and the rest of them, STILL getting away with it?
