Member of Singapore’s Top Sex Forum sought by police
January 7th, 2011 | Author: Editorial
A member forummer of Singapore’s Top Asian Commercial Sex Discussions Forum and Sammyboy Alfresco Coffee Shop is sought by the police to assist in a criminal investigation, according to a reliable insider informant.
The person behind the moniker “TRWatch”, used in Sammyboy’s chain of sex-related forum is sought by the Ang Mo Kio Police Division to assist in their investigation into an alleged offence of Criminal Intimidation, ordered by a Magistrate’s Court last year.
According to the informant, the case is jointly investigated by Ang Mo Kio Police Division and Technology Crime Investigation Branch of Technology Crime Division, Criminal Investigation Department.
It is understood that the host of Sammyboy’s Forum (all forums located on the same server) is assisting the Forensic Experts from the Technology Crime Investigation Branch in their investigation to establish the identity of the person behind the moniker “TRWatch”.
The Australia-based millionaire pornmaster who call himself “SammyBoy” or better known as “Sam Leong” is unlikely to have agreed to assist the police in their investigation which may explain the involvement of the host.
In such an investigation involving servers hosted overseas (ie: out of jurisdiction), the cooperation of the host country’s law enforcement agencies, data centre or host is crucial as the Forensic Experts cannot simply hack into the server and “steal” the required information as the law in many countries do not allow the inclusion of such “stolen” information arising from an illegal act (ie: hacking) to be admitted as evidence.
What this basically means is that with the assistance and cooperation of the host, the host can provide the server/site log which will show the IP address, time and date the person registered and/or posted comments under the said moniker.
This information is then matched with the local ISP’s log of the IP address assigned on the date and time provided by the host which will enable the Forensic Experts to trace the connection right to the front door of the registered subscriber assigned with that particular IP address, assuming if he / she is stationed in Singapore.
Readers with information on TRWatch can contact the investigating officer Inspector Jonathan through the following means:
