    Flippin' heck!

    Never incur the wrath/curiosity/nosiness of IT geeks!

    I hope Bagpuss gets a little bit of satisfaction back...

      This thread is more worrying than satisfying. Mr Upton stole 500k of client money and stole a further 1.1 million from his currency scheme investors. By law he can't be in control of a company/director/significant person until 2027. Isn't it time Dynamo and Fox-Bartfield said something? This could end up being a matter for the police.
      The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

      But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

        It's a little more than curiosity. A sense of justice perhaps? One doesn't want to see him perpetrate the same fraud again, and it looks like he was working towards that being possible, whether that was his intent or not.

        It's true we've been set a nice little puzzle to solve, which does appeal to geeks. I wouldn't call it mere curiosity, but the challenge does appeal to our abilities.

        It depends on what you want out of an Internet thread. If you wanted it to change the realities, that can't be done. All it can do is pool some research together to expose something. I think that's been done.

        There's sufficient here to ask the police to look at it. We've gone from a vague coincidence (same first name, same birth month) to a very strong physical likeness and too many coincidences to ignore. We've identified probable law-breaking (50% ownership of a start-up) and possible law-breaking (perhaps use of false ID, perhaps violated terms of licence). There appears to have been a pattern of deceit towards the contracting community (including disingenuous comments when this began to come to light), which may indicate (given the history) there was a conspiracy to commit fraud. It's all here if someone wants to boil it down and send off a dossier to the police.

        Dynamo says legal action keeps them from commenting on whether DJR is DJU. If they knew he wasn't DJU they could confirm that for a client. So they are in a legal action involving this very question. Doesn't that tell you enough?

        If F-B knew he wasn't DJU they could say so. Either he pulled the wool over their eyes and they don't want to admit it or they knew all along, likely the latter. If they knew, they aren't going to admit it now.

          Given Hentons and FB responses I’d imagine it’s already a matter for the police

            It is just possible that DR (assuming he exists) wasn't born in the UK, in which case he wouldn't show up on UK birth records.

            Just saying...
            His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

              Very true. That's just one simple line of inquiry. There are plenty of options. Has D*R been married? If so, he's from Yorkshire, likely there's a marriage record around for that in the public domain. Has he had kids? Likewise, public domain information. Lots of lines of inquiry, how about did D*R ever go to university, they keep alumni records? And so on. It would take the police two minutes to look at national insurance numbers, bank records, school history, driving licence, insurance policies etc... They'd nail it very quickly if they wanted to. They have DJU's DNA on file too.

              If you take a trip to the UK government records office, you could buy a copy of the birth certificates for DJU and if one exists, for D*R born in December 1971. Of course, there remains the possibility of being born overseas. But there's also the possibility, given all the other "coincidences" and the photographic similarity, that DJU and D*R are the same person. Right now, I'm pretty sold on the idea.

                Thanks for pointing that out, nobody thought of that, did they? Oh, wait.

                  I have no idea where he was born, but he does have a very strong North East accent.

                  He also supports Newcastle.

                  He also has an interesting out of office at the moment, if anyone wants to check it. I'm sure you can guess his email address.

                    What does it say? I tried a couple of variations of his email but no OOO.

                    DJU was a Leeds fan I believe.

                      Hi, just signed up after reading this, as I'm wondering what advise you'd all give to a current FB client?
