UPDATE 09.08.2019: John McAfee via : Coinrivet's interview with @theemrsmcafee and myself. One of our best. If you want a detailed rundown on what's been happening with/to us, this is where to find out: John McAfee EXCLUSIVE: “Our secret hideout in Lithuania…”

UPDATE 28.07.2019: John McAfee via : The bad guys never came close. We are out of England now and on our way to complete safety. We will not be silenced.

Via @officialmcafee: On the move again. The long arm of the U.S. is reaching for us here in London. Thank God it's a weekend. Government bureaucracy paperwork is stalled until tomorrow morning. We are never stalled. Will update you soon.

All 4 dogs were rescued.

UPDATE 27.07.2019: via : The dogs are safe-ish! They were taken to a French resident's farm in the Dominican Republic. Thanks to our lawyer Carlos Olivares for making this happen.

UPDATE 24.07.2019: via @officialmcafee by : I have spoken with John over the phone and can confirm their safe release. They are underway to a new location, but have been forced to leave The Freedom Boat for now. John will be assuming control of this account again after travel.

Glad to be out of "detention". We're safe and on our way to the airport.

Update via : John, Janice and his crew are alive and in the process of being released from confinement.

The man who gave the world the first free anti-virus program to keep the spooks out of our internet computers is haunted by dark forces. Most recently he offered to help the Cuban state develop its own cryptocurrency in the interest of avoiding U.S. interventionism in trade and cruel U.S. sanctions imposed on Cuba for helping Venezuela.

John McAfee Detained Days After Warning CIA Hunting Him

John McAfee and his wife Janice defend freedom - online and offline, like here in real life.

‘My crime is not filing tax returns – not a crime’

By | Infowars.com - July 23, 2019

Former tech CEO John McAfee and his wife were detained by unspecified 'authorities' Tuesday, according to a person who took over his Twitter account.

According to Rob Loggia-Ramirez (@Loggiaonfire on Twitter), McAfee, his wife and “other companions” were “detained by authorities at their latest port of call.”


@Loggiaonfire suggests McAfee has a “dead man’s switch” in place in case he’s disappeared.

“If John misses his next check-in, events will be set into motion that I cannot prevent once they have begun,” the person who took over the account wrote. “John has secreted data with individuals across the world. I know neither their identities or locations. They will release their payloads if John goes missing.”


The detainment comes days after McAfee and his wife posted a tweet posing with rifles and claiming the CIA was hunting him.

“The CIA has attempted to collect us,” McAfee tweeted. “We are at sea now and will report more soon. I will continue to be dark for the next few days.”

Later Tuesday, @Loggiaonfire added an update confirming the veracity of Tuesday’s report:

Their private Twitter account (including Janice McAfee) had at the time not been updated since 16th July 2019.


Listen to what John McAfee had to say recently about the State of the U.S.A as a nation.


Team McAfee - BitCoin Giveaway, but always countercheck, since while John was incommunicado in Domencian state-"hotel" someone set up a copycat scam.

UPDATE: Via a fake McAfeee witter account:  I'm so glad to have returned, it's a blessing to be free. To celebrate being alive, I am going to finish that crypto-airdrop I started the other day. The #McAfee 5,000 Bitcoin and 10,000 Ethereum airdrop has just begun.

While on the @officialmcafee you read:

Entire articles now being written by scammers claiming to be me, saying I'm giving away Bitcoin and Ethereum (Your choice apparenly). Are people really this stupid? If so, I'm resigning from the human race. No one gives anything for free, people, least of all – me! https://t.co/cBFhKybPMd

John McAfee Arrest Rumors Spark Concerns About Dead Man’s Switch

John McAfee’s campaign manager has said on Twitter that the presidential candidate and his wife might have been arrested or detained on his boat, sparking rumors about a possible “dead man’s switch” that John McAfee recently talked about online. McAfee has been living off a boat and says it’s because he’s wanted for not paying his taxes. Now his campaign manager is saying that McAfee and his wife might have been detained on that boat. This is a developing story.

His Campaign Manager Said He Hasn’t Heard from McAfee or His Wife Since Their Boat Was Boarded & Assured Followers ‘This Is Not a Publicity Stunt’

John McAfee’s campaign manager, Rob Bendicto Pacifico Juan Maria Loggia-Ramirez, posted on McAfee’s Twitter account on July 23 to share that he hadn’t heard from McAfee and thought he was detained. He wrote: “This is @loggiaonfire again. I have good reason to suspect that John McAfee, @theemrsmcafee and other companions have been detained by authorities at their latest port of call. I will be operating this account providing updates as they become possible… I last spoke with John as his boat was being boarded. The situation was tense but controlled. Our conversation was cut short by authorities confiscating their phones. The bastards wouldn’t even give him a cigarette.”

Loggia-Ramirez said he last spoke to McAfee when his boat was being boarded and he hasn’t heard from him since. You can read his tweets below.



Loggia-Ramirez told CNET that he didn’t have any additional information. He said that he and companions were using “every possible resource” to find McAfee and get him released.

Loggia-Ramirez later took to Twitter to thank followers for their help and to assure the public that this is not a “publicity stunt.” He wrote: “Thank you all good people for the outpouring of support and offers of help following today’s announcement. John has many friends in this world, some powerful in their own right. Rest assured all are working to locate and John et al. There are also some people that doubt the veracity of today’s report. That is fair enough and can be forgiven. But you will find you are mistaken – this is not a publicity stunt.”

McAfee Has Spoken About Having a Deadman’s Switch



Prior to going dark, McAfee tweeted about having a deadman’s switch. On June 9 he wrote: “I’ve collected files on corruption in governments. For the first time, I’m naming names and specifics. I’ll begin with a corrupt CIA agent and two Bahamian officials. Coming today. If I’m arrested or disappear, 31+ terrabytes of incriminating data will be released to the press.”

His campaign manager reiterated the claim when he took over McAfee’s account. He wrote: “If John misses his next check-in, events will be set into motion that I cannot prevent once they have begun. John has secreted data with individuals across the world. I know neither their identities or locations. They will release their payloads if John goes missing. Our campaign for individual freedom and an end to state sponsored tyranny will continue despite these developments. On behalf of the free people of the world, I demand the release of John McAfee and his companions from wherever they are being held. This will not stand.”


McAfee has long spoken about fearing that his life is in danger. In June 2018, he disappeared from Twitter and then returned, saying that he was unconscious at Vidant Medical Center in North Carolina after someone tried to poison him. He then shared pictures, proving he was in the hospital:



McAfee has had concerns about his safety before. In February 2018, McAfee was scheduled to be one of the headline speakers at the Bitcoin, Ethereum and Blockchain Super Conference in Dallas. He did show up and speak, but at one point his name was not on the schedule and rumors were rampant about what was going on. Derek Dwilson, a conference attendee (and the husband of the author of this story,) reported on what was happening at the time. It turned out that McAfee didn’t want his name on the schedule because he was concerned about his safety. Dwilson wrote from the conference: “Now, to put this in context, John McAfee was billed as a speaker at this conference but is now absent from all the materials. UPDATE: John McAfee showed up and gave a pretty good talk. Word has it that he was concerned about safety if his speaking time was published beforehand.”

McAfee Tweeted a Few Days Earlier about the CIA Trying to ‘Collect’ Him

McAfee’s last tweets on his account were the day before his account said he was detained. He talked about the Justice Department and also spoke about how he had been on his boat without air conditioning and water. McAfee said no one on the boat had been able to bathe for five days.


Earlier that day he said he had been at sea for four days in rough weather and was nearing port.

On July 19, McAfee tweeted that the CIA had “tried to collect us” and so they went back out to sea and he would be dark for a few more days. On July 16, his campaign manager tweeted on his account that McAfee would be going dark on Twitter and “nothing more can be said.”

John McAfee believed to have been detained, campaign manager says

Data secreted across the world will be released if McAfee stays missing, his Twitter account says.

By Corinne Reichert  July 23, 2019

John McAfee has apparently gone missing.


John McAfee has apparently gone missing and is believed to have been detained by authorities, according to a series of tweets Tuesday from the Twitter account of the 2020 presidential candidate and maker of an "unhackable" cryptocurrency wallet. Operating McAfee's Twitter account, his campaign manager Rob Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Loggia-Ramirez said data hidden across the world by McAfee will be revealed if he remains detained.

The antivirus software pioneer has been on the run since 2012 after his alleged involvement in a murder in Belize, which he denies. McAfee last week tweeted his only "crime is not filing tax returns." He claims the rest of the charges against him is "propaganda by the US government to silence me."

"I have good reason to suspect that John McAfee, @theemrsmcafee and other companions have been detained by authorities at their latest port of call," Loggia-Ramirez tweeted on McAfee's account Tuesday.

"If John misses his next check-in, events will be set into motion that I cannot prevent once they have begun. John has secreted data with individuals across the world. I know neither their identities or locations. They will release their payloads if John goes missing."

Loggia-Ramirez told CNET he has no more information about the detainment, but that he and others are "employing every possible resource to locate him and secure his release."

"The bastards wouldn't even give him a cigarette," Loggia-Ramirez tweeted.

The Twitter thread didn't say when McAfee's next check-in was scheduled.

On July 19, McAfee had tweeted that the CIA "attempted to collect us." "We are at sea now and will report more soon. I will continue to be dark for the next few days," he tweeted with a picture of himself and his wife holding guns.

On July 22, McAfee then tweeted about being at sea in rough weather for four and a half days. "Nearing port. All is well. Will be back in the saddle shortly," he said.

Loggia-Ramirez told CNET later Tuesday that he could not share the plans or timeline for the release of the secreted data across the world.

"I can say that our response has been pre-coordinated in the event something like this happened, and it that has many moving pieces involving people unaware of each other," he said in a private Twitter message. "John is not stupid."

John McAfee Fails CIA’s Attempts to Collect Him and His Wife, Shotguns Involved

By Yuri Molchan  - 20. July 2019

Crypto guru John McAfee says CIA has made an attempt to collect him in Cuba, posts a photo holding wepons.

In the previous episode of the ‘McAfee runaway saga’ U.Today reported that the crypto baron and one of the current US presidential candidates, John McAfee, send a word that he would be going dark on Twitter and promising to share details later on.

The message was posted on his account by McAfee’s team campaign manager with a long beard and just as long Spanish name Rob Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Loggia-Ramirez (probably, McAfee calls him ‘Don Juan’ for short, in commemoration of the Carlos Castaneda’s mysterious teacher).

Villains strike, stakes rise

On Friday, July 19, the story had a continuation, since the first tweet made my McAfee himself appeared after the one promising that he would ‘go dark’.

The presidential candidate McAfee has reported that the CIA has attempted to lay their hands on him and his wife and prevented them from relaxed cigar smoking in Cuba.

The photo he posted shows McAfee and his wife Janice holding weapons, which apparently they used to scare the CIA agents off their expensive cognac and Cuban cigars.

The crypto baron then said that he would go dark on Twitter for another few days until the IRS sends US marines to catch him, perhaps.
