As the world's first professional Internet bounty hunter, Michael Roberts of Rexxfield had good reason to dedicate his professional life to catching criminals hiding behind internet anonymity – he was a victim himself. Michael's antagonist is now serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
Acting as a civilian agent in a multi-agency national manhunt in 2013, Michael located a murder fugitive in just 73 minutes, it led to an arrest by US Marshals. The suspect had been on the run for two-months prior to Michael joining the sting operation.
Michael previously coordinated white-hat security, digital forensics and counter-hacking education for the U.S. Air Force, NATO, Australian military and the UN to name a few, Michael now uses his skills for private and law enforcement clients.
Michael has helped all manner of people from school children to celebrities, CEOs and Heads of State. His record time for identifying a troll was 17 minutes in a case where an Attorney General in the U.S. had already spent $100,000 of tax-payers money and five internal attorneys in futile attempts to identify a rogue Tweeter.
In 2012 Michael secured the release of a man who had been held in jail for 12 days without bail for allegedly sending electronic death threats. In a sting operation Michael was able to prove that the death threats were in fact transmitted by the alleged victim to herself in order to frame the jailed man.
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."
