So who called Monte Friesner’s wife a “whore”?

Updated below - Reading the supposed court decision in the criminal case Monte Friesner started against yours truly, one might be fooled into believing that this journalist called Friesner's wife, the Russian Tatiana Nazarova, a "whore". However, nothing could be further from the truth.

Soon after Friesner started to be subject of coverage here in Panama, we received several emails from one "Shanita Ramdin". One of those emails alleged that Friesner's wife had in fact been a prostitute:

Tatyana is real name and she worked as model in Milano and has a very high price escort lady who charge 5000 euro each day. Tatyana is very wealthy and has many boy friends. She likes young men who are very handsome. (...) I will send you photos of Tatyana that I have from when she work as escort in Italy. Please do not state that you receive this from me. Monty is very dangerous and has many connections to Russia Mafia that is now in Panama.

Here's a PDF of the full email with the pictures that were attached to it (NSFW!). I have no idea whatsoever if this is indeed Friesner's wife; the face isn't very well visible in the photos. At the top of the emails, you'll find a number of lines with internet gibberish, but that where it starts to get interesting, so let me walk you through some fine internet sleuthing here.

These so-called email "headers" show the route the email took from the sender's computer to the recipient. The line of interest to us is "X-aol-ip: 201.218.97.34"

That 10-digit number is an IP address. Every computer, router, modem etc. that is connected to a network such as the internet has its own unique IP address. These IP addresses are allocated, which means that for example C&W has a range of these numbers that they assign to the computers connected to their service.

This particular IP address, 201.218.97.34, is a CableOnda address. You can say with certainty that this email, even though Mrs. Ramdin claimed to be from Africa, came in fact from a computer in Panama connected through CableOnda, and other parts of the header show that the mail.com web interface was used to compose and send the message.

In other words, someone in Panama, connected through CableOnda, logged into the "Shanita Ramdin" account on the web and sent this email to me with those pictures.

Now who could that possibly be?

Soon after receipt, clues began to emerge. First, someone who claimed to be Lawrence Heath attempted to post comments on this website. We can see from which IP address these comments originate and guess what? Indeed! Mr. Heath, while claiming to be in Canada, was posting his comments from the same Panamanian computer that Mrs. Ramdin used to send emails, supposedly from Africa, calling Mrs. Nazarova a prostitute and sending nude pictures.

Then, we received an email from Monte Friesner himself, who was trying to spin his way out of the mess he was creating. However, it only got him deeper into it, because, if you look at the email (PDF) and its headers, you will find "Received: from Monte (unknown [201.218.97.34]) (Authenticated sender: monte.friesner@bellagio-tower.com)"

You see? It's the same IP address!

So who, in reality, was calling his own wife a whore (and a whole bunch of other things) and sending out nude pictures? Indeed, Monte Friesner himself.

So, why didn't the court see this?

Because, dear reader, the courts in Panama are run by illiterate troglodytes and the public ministry is even worse, unable to even investigate their way out of a wet paper bag. They are simply too stupid to understand any of this modern internet stuff. That's why. But at least now you understand it!

Update: If you downloaded the entire email from Friesner-posing-as-Shanita, you'll notice how it says that the photos are from her days as a "prostitute in Italy". Well, here's another bit of cyber-sleuthing for you: Photos, like most other electronic documents, have electronic properties in them. For example, the properties of a Word document will sometimes reveal when it was edited, and to whom the Word software was licensed. With pictures taken with digital cameras, you have exif data. Upload a digital image here and you can read that hidden data in the photo.

In the case of the pictures allegedly of Mrs. Nazarova, the exif data tells us that the photo was taken with a Canon PowerShot SD550, using flash, with a focal length of 7.7mm, exposure time was 1/60 second at an aperture of 2.8. What does this tell us, other than that an el cheapo camera was used? Well, it gets more interesting, because the date the picture was taken is also in the exif data. This photo was taken on August 31st of 2009, at 15:33.

That is less than six months before this email was sent. At that time, Friesner and Nazarova had already been living in Panama for years, and thus the photo can not depict Nazarova during work as a prostitute in Italy. The camera that was used is another clue; that model isn't old enough to have taken a picture before the Friesners arrived in Panama. It simply didn't exist.

Monte, Monte! So many lies, so little time, huh?

  1. INcluding and beyond this particular case the funcionarios cannot read or write in their own Español. I have various friends that are English an Spanish professors at the University level and even they have given up with the illiterate students that get thrown (the majority BTW) at them.

    I could go on……..

  2. “Tatyana is very wealthy and has many boy friends. She likes young men who are very handsome…”

    Oh Monte you old cuckold!

  3. If this didn’t have such serious ramifications, it would be funny! I guess some people don’t like it when their well-laid plans (????) go awry. Especially when they are exposed for the whole world to see!

  4. Great IP Work. Does it every time. As an ex IT Admin you are right on the money. You are right about the Public Ministry. We have a case against a third party national with being involved in all sorts of stuff. Presented the IP, Trace Route, ping…etc. Fell of the dumb and deaf with the Public Ministry.
