Review

"Once again Ahearn spices up his prose with real stories as a skip tracer and now as someone who uses deception to `set the record straight' so to speak."  By The Happy Hombre - Madrid News

"I have read, Frank Ahearn previous book," How to Disappear" and I loved it (Read my Amazon review) I was excited to learn that he was writing another book and I emailed him and to my surprise he email me back and told me about this book coming out." By Stingray

From the Author

When it comes to the digital world your information is gold to site owners and they do not care if the information is good, bad or ugly. They just want your content. Since there is no delete button to rid digital dystopia of your information your only weapon is to create digital deception. That may sound nefarious and be dishonest but so what, its war!

Frank M. Ahearn

"The Digital Hit Man: His Weapons for Combating the Digital World" is an absolute play to get more money off of his success with "How to dissapear."(Which is actually a good book.)

But, unlike his great previous book, this work is full of him saying the same thing over and over and is filled with references on how you need to buy his other book to understand what he is mulling over in this one.

Just stick with "How to dissapear." it is much better then reading this long advertisement for it.

I have read, Frank Ahearn previous book," How to Disappear" and I loved it( Read my Amazon review) I was excited to learn that he was writing another book and I emailed him and to my surprise he email me back and told me about this book coming out. I am not going to disappear or am I on the run. But I find these type of book fascinating. I am a big believer that there are experts out there for almost every categories and why not one of vanishing or living under the radar.

The book is brilliant in my opinion. If you want information about you on the internet to disappear because of some youthful indiscretion or uncompromising pictures- is really hard to delete them from internet, although Ahearn says you could try with a pretty good pretext:" I am a lawyer and you better take those pictures from your website because of copy infringement."
But as he says, this is WAR and if the pictures or information are not deleted, then, the alternative is flood the internet with so much information about you, pictures of you with different names, and tagging your name to different pictures, photoshop yourself in Belize , etc, etc. And you get the idea, someone looking for you or doing research will not know who is really you and who is the fake. He recommends you blog, buy your domain names, and do various variations of your name and again put a lot of mis-information on the internet as possible

Brillant!

Ahearn does a good job of dissecting some of the interesting News stories of people disappearing and what they did right and what they did wrong. On Whitey Bulger, role that inspired , the character in the movie, Departed ,is worth the price of admission.

This book has some good advice for making your digital footprint smaller, and I put much of it into practice. Some of it, such as calling up and pretexting information sites, is a bit like overkill, since all those sites have is old addresses anyway. If someone is after me, I want to 1. waste his time and 2. Spend his money. I'm pretty sure that someone who was after me would have to go to a REAL PI, someone who charges a couple of hundred dollars just to sit down in his/her office.

Better than the first...
After reading and enjoying his first book I was anxiously waiting for this one. While the first book was a great read, the overall theme seemed to be centered on those that couldn't get into the federal witness protection program or those that had serious money problems or were too famous and wanted to get off the grid.
This book addresses a much wider theme and should have a much wider audience. It is for all of us ordinary citizens concerned with both off line and on line unprotected information being used to our detriment.
Just a few years ago, I had a good friend ask me how to remove his information from a social site. To the best of or ability we did it, but to this day we still see some of the information on the net.
If I had this little gem of a guide and employed some of the techniques within, I am sure we would have been more successful.
To all of you folks who counter the argument about privacy with "I have nothing to hide and therefore not concerned"...you need to wake up to the reality that any and all information you put out there is up for grabs.
Once again Ahearn spices up his prose with real stories as a skip tracer and now as someone who uses deception to `set the record straight' so to speak.
The methods discussed inside are sometimes hard to grasp and require some hard work but as Frank says "this is war" and it is well worth the effort.
Good job and thanks for the info. Enjoyed it!
P.S. I hope this review does not come back to haunt me!

I had just about finished reading Frank M. Ahearn's "The Digital Hit Man His Weapons for Combating the Digital World" ( when I came across two news items that reinforced Ahearn's thesis that the wired world has robbed everyone of privacy. One was about Boston fugitive James "Whitey" Bulger, captured last year in California, and the other was really weird -- about the two wives of a Washington state bigamist discovering each other on Facebook.

Under the headline "Reputed Mass. mobster's girlfriend rethinking plea" the Associated Press story, datelined Boston, said that the brother of one of Whitey's alleged murder victims -- Whitey's been accused of 19 murders -- says he's been told by a representative for federal prosecutors in Boston that Bulger's girlfriend Catherine Greig is thinking about pleading guilty to a charge of helping the mobster evade capture.

The AP story said that "Greig has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to harbor a fugitive, which carries a maximum prison sentence of five years. Prosecutors said last fall they were considering filing additional charges against her. She has a pretrial hearing scheduled for Wednesday. Her trial is scheduled for May 7."

The story adds that "Bulger and Greig were captured in June 2011 in Santa Monica, Calif., after 16 years on the run. He has pleaded not guilty in connection with 19 killings. Bulger headed Boston's Winter Hill Gang and was an FBI informant against the rival New England Mafia. Bulger's former FBI handler, John Connolly Jr., was convicted of racketeering for warning Bulger that he was about to be indicted just before Bulger fled Boston in late 1994.
