    Also, have you contacted your Congressional Rep and asked them co-sponsor Ron Paul's Rep. Paul Broun Jr.'s HR 1098 77: Free Competition in Currencies Act?

    Going after a person living in another country for tax evasion certainly sounds like we are property of Uncle Sam. At what point does the slave get to buy his freedom from his US masters?

    But it is McAfee, $#@! him. Don't care.

    Should he be rewarded for perpetuating multiple stock frauds (they didn't even get on the bigger one) and murdering his neighbor?

    He isn't Howard Roark pursuing productive work and a life of integrity, all the while fighting against the statist powers that be. I made zillion posts about his pink sheet pump and dump currently trading at 1.3 cents down from 8 bucks. He likely made at least $50 million on that. The SEC got him for making $23 million pumping $#@!coins and dumping into his Twitter followers. He is a parasite.

    Sure.... and since Trump has nothing else to do, he should posthumously pardon Al Capone and Leona Helmsley.

    With renunciation of citizenship. But there is a fee for that too.

    I don't have references to any of the articles handy, but over the years I've read stories of expats still being pursued and hounded by the IRS, even for taxes supposedly owed on income they received after they had formally renounced US citizenship.

    If you come across those articles would please be so kind and forward to me and post them?

    From what I have read (here and there) I believe it. I believe the US is one of only two countries where if you live in a foreign country, and work for a foreign company in that country, Paid in host country currency, that you still owe taxes to the US.

    Its almost as though you have to pay for your rights & priveledge to be a citizen.

    Under IRC Sections 877 and 877A, a person who renounces his citizenship and who either (a) has a net worth of at least $2 million, (b) had an average annual income tax of at least $155,000 for the 5-year period preceding expatriation, or (c) fails to certify he has complied with federal tax law for the 5-year period, is subject to U.S. income tax for 10 years after renouncing his citizenship. Of course, collecting the tax might be difficult if all of his assets have been moved overseas.

    The charges were announced on Monday:

    SEC Charges John McAfee With Fraudulently Touting ICOs
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    2020-246

    Washington D.C., Oct. 5, 2020 —
    The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged businessman and computer programmer John McAfee for promoting investments in initial coin offerings (ICOs) to his Twitter followers without disclosing that he was paid to do so. McAfee’s bodyguard, Jimmy Watson, Jr., was also charged for his role in the alleged scheme.

    According to the SEC’s complaint, McAfee promoted multiple ICOs on Twitter, allegedly pretending to be impartial and independent even though he was paid more than $23 million in digital assets for the promotions. When certain investors asked whether he was paid to promote the ICOs, McAfee allegedly denied receiving any compensation from the issuers. The complaint alleges that McAfee made other false and misleading statements, such as claiming that he had personally invested in some of the ICOs and that he was advising certain issuers. The complaint alleges that Watson assisted McAfee by negotiating the promotion deals with the ICO issuers, helping McAfee cash out the digital asset payments for the promotions, and, for one of the ICOs McAfee was promoting, having his then-spouse tweet interest in the ICO. Watson was allegedly paid at least $316,000 for his role. According to the complaint, while McAfee and Watson profited, investors were left holding digital assets that are now essentially worthless.

    McAfee and Watson also allegedly engaged in a separate scheme to profit from a digital asset security by secretly accumulating a large position in McAfee’s accounts, touting that security on Twitter while intending to sell it, and then selling McAfee’s holdings as the price rose.

    “Potential investors in digital asset securities are entitled to know if promoters were compensated by the issuers of those securities,” said Kristina Littman, Cyber Unit Chief. “McAfee, assisted by Watson, allegedly leveraged his fame to deceptively tout numerous digital asset securities to his followers without informing investors of his role as a paid promoter.”

    The SEC’s complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, charges McAfee and Watson with violating antifraud provisions of the federal securities laws, McAfee with violating the anti-touting provisions, and Watson with aiding and abetting McAfee’s violations. The complaint seeks permanent injunctive relief, conduct-based injunctions, return of allegedly ill-gotten gains, and civil penalties. The SEC also seeks to bar McAfee from serving as a public company officer and director.

    The Tax Division of the Department of Justice announced today that it brought criminal charges against McAfee.

    The SEC’s investigation was conducted by David H. Tutor, Jon A. Daniels, Christopher Ferrante, and Diego Brucculeri, and supervised by John O. Enright and Ms. Littman. The litigation will be led by Jorge G. Tenreiro, Mr. Tutor, and Mr. Daniels. The SEC appreciates the assistance of the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division.

    The SEC’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy cautions investors to be wary of celebrity endorsements and to always independently research investment opportunities.

    If I come across any of them (or any other stories like them) I will try to remember to post them here. It's been a while, and my encounters with such stories have been scattered out over the years. I never bookmarked or otherwise saved any of them.

    I don't recall what particular justifications (if any) were cited by (or on behalf of) the IRS in any of the stories. Maybe this, maybe something else. Maybe just bureaucratic spitefulness. It's not like the IRS are paragons, after all - they even warn that, with respect to their own "customer" service (HA!), they cannot be held liable for any bad or incorrect advice or information they themselves give to you, but that you can and will be held liable for using it.
