McCanns scammed by new private investigators

It is not surprising that the McCanns, who are not novices in scamming themselves, have been scammed for £500,000 by Oakley International, the firm of private investigators, hired to replace Metodo3. Given that the firm merely man the McCanns hotline, view CCTV footage and chase up false sightings, £500,000 does seem a bit steep. However, part of the price is obviously to play the game of pretending that Madeleine is still alive and out there somewhere.

Date Released: 26/08/2008

In the light of articles in some UK Sunday newspapers this weekend, we feel it is appropriate to comment briefly on our relationship with the investigation company Oakley International.

We appointed them several months ago to investigate the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. We continue to work with them to this end. The working relationship is managed by Brian Kennedy, who also confirms the relationship with Oakley International continues to be good and that it remains entirely focused on the search for Madeleine.

    Do not be fooled by Mitchell spin. He’s disassociated himself from Metado 3 several times, always after ‘bad press’. They were linked to police haul of 400 kgs of cocaine; recently it was reported a director had been charged with attempted homicide and extortion whilst working on McCanns’ behalf. Citizens in Portugal, Morocco & Spain reported Metado 3’s corruption to the police, namely, intimidating and bribing people for false sightings.

    News then broke of ‘new’ detectives – reputable FBI & CIA chaps !!!

    Mitchell’s job is to manipulate public opinion against the police and their findings of death; “sightings” are critical and will continue for as long as they are ‘needed’. Their ‘detectives’ provided most if not all for high profile media release. It also wasted police time and resources in several countries.

    The plan seems to be – tell the public the McCanns have no ‘detectives’.
    Thereafter, the inevitable “sightings” of the “abducted child” will be ‘by chance, not the result of bribery/corruption.

    I never swallow Mitchell’s media tripe …. he’s an insult to peoples’ intelligence. He used the media to disassociate himself from Metado’s unsavoury methods of ‘detection’. Their ‘methods’ provided the McCanns with what they wanted – lots and lots of sightings of the child who died (according to overhwelming police evidence) in their charge in their apartment.

    FBI working for the McCanns and/or ripping them off. Dream on Mitchell …. they’re with PJ on this one having used top dogs Eddie & Keela in cases of suspected homicide.

    McCanns have use of best lawyers. Contracts with ‘detectives’ are watertight, guaranteed. The McCanns are never the losers where money is concerned !
