    Letter purports to link cyber attack on OffshoreAlert’s website to British fraudster David Kennedy

    OffshoreAlert has received a bizarre 'Cease and Desist' letter that purports to link last week's prolonged cyber attack on our website to British investment fraudster David Kennedy, who was criminally convicted in England on May 3rd for his involvement in a £121 million investment fraud perpetrated by Cayman Islands-domiciled Axiom Legal Financing Fund, which collapsed after being exposed by OffshoreAlert in 2012.

    ‘Remove details of David Kennedy’s conviction or I will continue to disrupt your website’, writes ‘Hardpink Legal’

Remarkably, the author - who used a throw-away email address and may have been using a pseudonym - essentially claimed responsibility for a cyber attack on OffshoreAlert's website last week, which began three days after Kennedy's criminal conviction in England on May 3rd, 2024, ending the letter with the threat that "Failure to comply with this demand will continue with disruption of your service provided [by] Rackspace and Armor via all means necessary."
