MICHAEL ROBERTSREXXFIELD FOUNDER
Internet Victim’s Advocate, Expert Witness, Digital Forensics Analyst, Electronic Discovery & Litigation Support Consultant
Michael Roberts of Rexxfield is said to be the World’s first professional Internet bounty hunter. A victim himself, Michael has good reason to dedicate his professional life to catching criminals hiding behind Internet anonymity. Thankfully, his antagonist was convicted in 2012 and is now serving a life sentence in prison, without the possibility of parole.Michael Roberts was engaged as a civilian agent in a multi-agency, national manhunt for a murder fugitive in 2013. Michael located the suspect in just 73 minutes, this led to his arrest by US Marshals. Prior to Michael joining the sting operation the suspect had been on the run for almost two-months.In the past Michael coordinated digital forensics and counter-hacking education for the U.S. Air Force, Marines, Army & Navy. Other clients include NATO, Australian military and the United Nations to name just a few. Michael now consults for private and law enforcement clients.Michael has helped bullied school children, celebrities, CEOs and Heads-of-State. His record time for identifying an Internet troll was just 17 minutes in a case where an Attorney General in the U.S. had already spent $100,000 of taxpayer’s money, with five attorneys and a Grand Jury, 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 actually conveyed by the so-called victim in order to frame the man who was later arrested.Michael has also been responsible for several journalistic scoops; he was described by one investigative journalist recently as:
“… an absolute secret weapon for any serious reporter.”
