Yesterday Duncan Oldham, broke his silence, over claims made on this blog, about the theft of funds raised by Koptalk members, for his disabled “cousin ” Lauren Forsyth. He did not post it on here, even though this blog has given him an open “right of reply”, He posted in on his own site and then promptly locked the thread, before any awkward questions could be asked.
The flaws and contradictions in his article have already been exposed by Insider in his article yesterday.
I would like to look at why Duncan Oldham chose now, after months of silence, to respond to our accusations.
He doesn’t mention us directly – except in his references to his “stalkers” – because he cannot bring himself to admit that we exist or, alternatively, that “I welcome the publicity”.
So why did he finally try to defend himself?
It struck me as a last desperate attempt to justify himself to himself: his post seemed full of guilt and remorse. Its something I never thought I’d see from him.
But why and why now?
Well Koptalk is dying on its feet, it has virtually no members, it has no income from new subscriptions and precious little income from the Google ads that are plastered everywhere.
January should be one of its busiest times, but thanks to this blog correspondence with News Now he was banned from that site on the 2nd of January. For Oldham this could not have come at a worse time, as he relied heavily on the transfer windows to lure the unsuspecting to pay £30 for his members-only site.
So what caused this latest outpouring of pleas for understanding?
Does he realise that his days of sitting on his fat backside and watching the money roll in from his fake charities, his fake memorabilia, non existent competitions are over? Yes, he probably does.
Does he fear that authorities investigating his various fraudulent activities may be getting ready to move in and start asking a lot of embarrassing questions, and that some of these questions may be put to him “under caution” ?
Luckily for him he can call upon the services of Paul Harper and the entire Koptalk legal team. And if they are a figment of his imagination, too, as Executive Editor he can always appoint himself as duty solicitor.
He is getting increasingly paranoid. He knows that one or more people close to him is feeding this blog information.
Earlier this month that blog revelaed that “Katie” is Katrina Cushnahan. And earlier this week his paranoia must have intensified after he introduced another teenage moderator who he instructed to lie about her name and background in order to present her to the members as single and available. But within hours Insider revealed that “Emma” was Rebecca Franks and that she had a son whose name was tattooed on her lower back, and he revealed other information.
It must have infuriated Oldham. He built his site on the false claim that he had “inside information” about LFC and here was a blog-that-doesn’t-exist with quick access to genuine inside information from his pathetic operation.
It must also intensifiy his paranoia to wonder who close to his operations are “friend or foe”.
Did it really have to end this way for Duncan Oldham and Koptalk?
He could have squeezed a few more years subscriptions out of those of us who used to be members if he had not insisted on seeking the limelight for himself and his family, if he had not been greedy and had not done all the scams detailed elsewhere on this blog.
Koptalk used to be a great site. Yes we all knew there was no Insider info, yes we all knew the Informer, Wallet and the Mole ( to mention but a few) were all really you Duncan, but we were happy to remain because, if we ignored you, it was a great community.
Did you realise that Duncan? Sadly you probably didn’t.
