The following is the draft of a letter I have sent, with suitable modifications, to George Gillett and Tom Hicks, copied to LFC executives. However, I would appreciate if those with access to Rick Parry and Ian Cotton would ensure they attended to it as quickly as possible.
By way of introduction you will recall that two weeks ago I wrote to George Gillett (after my first conversation with him) and told him that I thought Oldham would leverage his lies about his so-called invitation to Montreal to fool Tom Hicks office into agreeing to see him in Dallas. I also said that in my opinion he would link it to a proposed new revenue-earning site about the progress of the stadium and claim he had insider information. I said the club would have to continue to spend a disproportionate amount of time dealing with the false information that would surely follow. I copied it to Rick Parry.
Predictably, Oldham announced the new site today.
“I enclose a link to a new site that Duncan Oldham has constructed “on behalf” of George Gillett and Tom Hicks. In his introduction he claims he was personally invited to Montreal by George Gillett and to Dallas by Tom Hicks. He displays a photograph of himself and his 17 year old step brother with Tom Hicks in Dallas and links to a video of their meeting.He also insinuates that the two owners have given their blessing to the concept of the new site because its purpose will be to give them direct access to the views of LFC fans and he says that LFC’s own site – Liverpoolfc.tv – will not allow such direct access because the views of the fans will be filtered before they reach George Gillett and Tom Hicks.
In this statement Oldham returns to his traditional anti-LFC stance in which he always refers to the Official LFC Site as “the other side” staffed by “suits” against whom he struggles on behalf of LFC fans. This is also the theme of his proposed book: “Anfield Exposed”. In effect he is now claiming that George Gillett and Tom Hicks are helping him in this struggle against LFC.
His marketing message is that he, Oldham, has a specially privileged relationship with the two owners and inside information that even Rick Parry and Ian Cotton and the Official Site do not have, let alone the mainstream press.
This is how he has defrauded Liverpool fans for about 8 years. The only difference now is that he claims his insider informers are the two owners rather than executives, players, tea ladies and gate-men at the club.
I had forewarned George Gillett that he would use his dealings with his office to wangle an “invitation” from Tom Hicks and that he would tie the visit to this new site. I copied my warning to Rick Parry.
The purpose of the new site, like everything Oldham does, is to make money from LFC fans especially overseas fans who are not in a position to know of his dishonesty and reputation as a hustler, spiv and internet fraud in the UK. He makes money from advertising based on traffic to his sites. If he can, he will also sell fake LFC memorabilia, scalp tickets and raise money for fake charities. No doubt he will eventually find a way of combining the traffic from this new site to Koptalk.com and his porno site based in the USA.
You will notice that the new site is “kopfootball“. In earlier correspondence I informed you that the day after George Gillett and Tom Hicks announced that they had formed the company Kop Football Ltd., Duncan Oldham squatted on the domain names of all versions of that name.
This is an old trick of his. He has done it with LFC domain names, LFC charities associated with the 96 who died at Hillsborough and a Liverpool supporter imprisoned abroad, and the names of several LFC supporter sites. He has tried, but failed, to do it with the domain name of this blog. He then redirects the traffic intended for those sites to his own.
When our blog criticised him for doing it to the new owners he said that he did not intend to use the domains but wanted to protect them for the new owners. Obviously he was lying. Not only is he using the “stolen” domain name for the new site but he is insinuating his use of it has the blessing of the two new owners.
You will also note that he is also claiming that he has made associations with Ice Hockey, American Football and Baseball sites and they will be linked. So I think you can take it that his claims about his special relationship with George Gillett and Tom Hicks will now be spread in Canada and the United States.
You will also note that the editor of this new site is to be his his 12-13 years old daughter whose photo is shown. He exploits his children on his sites often pretending to be them when he posts – as he has done today in his introduction to the new site in which he pretends that it is her talking.
The girl shown is the same girl he said on Koptalk five years ago was raped at school, when she was 8 years of age. That was a lie and typical of several stories he has told about her on his site over the years always linking her with the subject of child rapists or molesters. He tries to fend off critics of his scams by claiming that they are molesting his children. Actually, by his own admission on Koptalk, he is separated from his wife and does not have custody of their two children. You will notice that his young daughter has been a “moderator” on Koptalk for a few years exposed to anonymous males from all over the world on a site where there is much pornographic content and explicit language and prominent links to his specialized porn site in the USA.
Last year on one of his Koptalk internet “broadcasts” about Liverpool FC he said he empathized with child rapists because he had begun to notice how young girls ignored him now he reached 32 years of age. And on a Koptalk podcasts a few months ago – the podcasts he said George Gillett listens to and admires – he had his then 16 year old step-brother act as a straight man in a “joke”in which Oldham claimed he slept with the 12 year old friends of his daughter. I enclose an audio clip of that event. You may have difficult understanding his thick Yorkshire dialect – as you know he is not from Liverpool.
You are already aware of what most Liverpool Football Club fans think should be done about all of this. The club should issue a clear, simple and definitive statement disassociating from Duncan Oldham and any website with which he is associated now or in the future if it purports to be about LFC.
I’m sorry if this is all very unpleasant. If it disgusts you perhaps you can appreciate how those of us from Liverpool whose families have been associated with the club for generations also feel about it.”
