Posted on 05/21/2010 5:07:25 PM PDT by dynachrome
Most people read a book then pick up and go. They simply disconnect their services with no forwarding address and leave. Big mistake; take your time and follow the below steps for making your escape last. Okay first step, do not use your home, work or cell-phone, and do not use your calling card. Do not use any of your credit cards to purchase anything in the place you are going to escape to. You should develop your plan at least six months before you hit the road. In the meantime have all of your services, cable, electric, phone bills forwarded to any GPO in the country. Call those companies every month and find your balances and pay them. Make sure all the bills go to different states. Have a little fun: one month have them send it to Oshkosh the next to Bogota, New Jersey. Let them know they have the wrong Social Security number on file and have them change it. Next month give them your cousin Henrys phone number in Toronto in case they need to reach you. The key here is to load your account with so much information you are creating misinformation.

I wonder how many lists you pop on just by following the link?
First, get solid proof on Obama’s wrongdoings...
Stroll thru Ft. Marcy park......
LOL - We’re horrible, aren’t we?
The best way to disappear is to over pay your taxes so you have a big refund coming. The government will never find you. This works for public figures too.
Years ago when the collection agencies were hounding me (when i was a liberal)...
1) I disappeared in canada by paying with cellphone by cash.
2) My address was a mailbox. Just “switch” the Box number to “Suite” #. When the collection papers came in, I just told the mailbox clerks to send it back, “it’s not mine”.
3) Pay rent by cash. Lots of houses in Vancouver where they separated the house to turn them into apartments.
Disappearance first needs a motivation, a timetable, and a conclusion.
If you are running away from something, you are already behind the power curve. This is because of the simple rule that “it is far better to protect than defend.” Protection is done at your leisure, defense is forced.
This is where a timetable comes in. Do you wish to disappear for a time, for a long time, or forever?
A personal history often trips people up, because they only know their real autobiography. They cannot muddy the waters of who they are, often because they don’t want to. They try to cling to things they have to let go. To leave strings behind with friends, so they can return to their old life.
There are many US citizens that live in the underground economy, often just because they have no ID, and have no ability, or no desire, to reestablish themselves as “part of the system.” They make friends with people who do have an ID, so they can stay with them; they work cash only jobs that leave no paper trail, and they do not do things that demand ID.
If they leave the US, they still can’t live in the city, and living in a rural part of a foreign country can very very challenging. As well, they have to do so as illegal aliens. The best way to do this is to have a very “disconnected confederate”, living their legally. This is someone with whom you have a strong and discreet relationship. Nobody else knows that you are comrades.
The conclusion to disappearance is the indifference of those that might search for you. Unless you are a wanted criminal, the US government will likely lose interest in a few years. Relatives can be very persistent, however, if they care. So it is best that they don’t care.

Ummmm..., well, it won't be me who pops up, it will be the guy at the house where I'm getting the WiFi connection right now ... LOL ...
A real pro will have a backpack with:
A change of clothes (from a second hand store)
A roll of $20s
A stack Kugerands (50 x 1/2 oz)
A pistol with 50 rounds.
A fake driver license or passport (purchase one here.)
Have fun and remeber - YMMV
I know of someone who apparently planned to "drop out" rather suddenly a few years ago. After one "goodbye luncheon" with family, a few months later, a relative stopped by his apartment to find he'd left with no forwarding address or information. His mail went to a paid-for P.O. box across the street and was handled by a proxy. He was still reachable by e-mail, and after it was concluded he'd skipped town, one relative sent him a scathing letter in which said relative declared he'd probably decided he couldn't make it in this country and had chosen to live abroad instead (he was temporarily staying in a certain country, according to his e-mail). His response was that he was running TO something and not FROM something.
A couple of relatives still keep in touch with him by e-mail but he has no other way of being contacted and volunteers no information about himself.
Go by yourself to a pre-paid cell-phone and never give anybody the number...Never call anybody with that phone, the number might show up on his or her caller ID.
So buy a pre-paid cell phone, but don't give out the number or call anybody with it. Why buy it in the first place?
You use the cell phone for calling out; for incoming calls, use Skype-in with voice mail. Skype-in will answer your phone call (including overseas numbers), the caller leaves a voice mail. Skype then sends an SMS or e-mail to you that you have a voice mail. Call in to Skype, get the voice mail, then call back with the number block (*67 first).
It’s the modern way of doing a pager, but it’s completely untraceable (since you don’t have to provide any contact information to Skype, and can fund it via Paypal which can also be completely anonymous).
It’s a slick way of having a number that no one knows, that is hard to trace even for a Government (especially if you use an overseas or out-of-State Skype-in number) and extremely easy to set up.

Here’s an idea for a FReep — buy copies of this book, and mail them to Obama care of the White House, with a post-it on the dustjacket on which you’ve written, “hint, hint”.
LOL! I wonder how many FReepers have seen MP’s “How not to be seen.”
Oh, I see... you’re letting the government trace EVERYTHING you write. Much better. *wink*
Glad somebody "got" it. Likely many have seen it, few remember.
Thanks for the link
They’re called ellipses ...
In this usage, I consider it redundant to state that this message is a self-reference. Further, BTTT takes a lot more effort to type and is irrelevant to the purpose. This software doesn’t tolerate an ‘empty message posting’. There must be something in the body of the message and I merely use the ellipses as a convenient ‘empty message’.
Frankly, I never made the Morse connection and, sadly, I am no longer proficient in decoding it.
But thanx for a quick chuckle, anyway ...
I KNOW such a feature exists. However, I rather like the idea that my ‘self-reference’ method somehow acknowledges to the original poster that someone, somewhere has noted and potentially valued the posting.
Bookmarks do not convey ANY message to the original poster ‘cause (s)he’ll never know it happened ...
