The Herald reports:
When Seth Rich’s Gmail account received an alert this week from Mega.com, attempting to start a new account on a website created by the New Zealand-based internet businessman and convicted hacker Kim Dotcom, his family knew that something was off. …
According to experts and Rich’s family, the emailed invitation from firstname.lastname@example.org appeared to be an attempt to gain access to Rich’s email. Joel Rich, who maintains his late son’s Gmail account, did not click the link. Meanwhile, Dotcom was promising on Twitter to prove that the younger Rich had been in contact with WikiLeaks – and Fox News host Sean Hannity was telling his 2.37 million Twitter followers to be ready for a revelation.
Looks like an attempt to manufacture evidence.
The latest revelation – that a hacker from New Zealand may have been trying as recently as this week to hack into Rich’s email – offered fresh evidence that the conspiracy theory is false. Dotcom, it seemed, may have been willing to create a fake archive of emails from Rich to “prove” his role in the DNC hack.
Well there is history when it comes to fake e-mails.
