Rexxfield Founder Michael Roberts – Consulting Detective
Internet Victim’s Advocate, Expert Witness,
Digital Forensics Analyst, Electronic Discovery & Litigation Support Consultant, Licenced Private Detective
|Michael is a thought leader in the areas of internet anonymity, abuse of electronic free speech and industry regulation to protect victims of cyber bullies and defamation.
Michael is a Licensed Private Detective and believed to be the world’s first professional Internet Consulting Detective. Michael Roberts had better reason than most to dedicate his professional life to catching cyber predators – he was once a victim! Previously coordinating white-hat security education for the US Air Force, NATO, the UN to name a few, Michael now uses his skills for private and law enforcement clients. He’s helped all manner of people from school children to celebrities and CEOs. His record time n identifying a troll was 17 minutes in a case where an Attorney General in the US had already spent $100,000 of tax-payers money and five internal attorneys in futile attempts to identify a rogue Tweeter. Michael is also responsible for numerous investigative journalistic scoops, and was described by one journalist recently as: “… an absolute secret weapon for any serious reporter.”
He is a Case Analyst, Digital Forensics Analyst, Libel Litigation Support Consultant and entrepreneur. Michael founded, an international I.T. security organization that consulted for, or trained thousands of personnel from many of the world’s defense forces, intelligence agencies, governments, financial institutions, NGOs and almost any industry imaginable. As a result of his first-hand experience with a malicious, relentless, libelous online antagonist he sold the training business and turned his passion and focus to helping other victims through the anguish and frustration of such an assault.
His team is breaking new ground in direct methods of addressing the attacks as well as seeking legislative and judicial reform to protect the innocent victims of the malicious, illegal and unprotected abuse of free speech on the Internet. In late 2011 Michael’s antagonist was finally convicted of of fraud, perjury and Murder in the 1st degree and has been sentence to life imprisonment without possibility of parole.
Before moving to the USA in the mid 90s Michael was appointed as the youngest investigator for the Australian Telecommunications Commission in the 80s before he turned twenty, he held field and security clearances from the Australian Security Intelligence Organization (ASIO). Michael and his family now live between the Australia and Europe.
