Thanks to Jason for alerting me to this bunch of clowns.
To quote Mark Twain, “The rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated”.
I may have been unable to respond to comments or even to update my blog, but that is due to work-related activities and has nothing to do with my early demise.
However, not so according to Florida-based US company Executive Outcomes Protection Services (EOPS) who, with a few strokes across the keyboard, have killed me.
On their website (www.eopssecurity.com) under company history, EOPS states (unedited) the following:
Our Inspirational founder, the late Colonel Eeben Barlow founded executive outcomes in 1989. A private military contractor (PMC) company. The company acquires notoriety by its professionalism and dedication and by the year 1994/1995 rescuing and returning the constitutional power to the government of Sierra Leone and Angola.
Whereas there are many who would no doubt rejoice at my early demise, I think there are equally some governments that may be concerned as I still need to assist them with some matters. After all, who would want to use a dead guy to provide advice? Besides, I could have killed myself by laughing so much that I fell off my chair and broke my neck laughing.
Sadly EOPS did not do any homework before they decided to pose as a reborn EO. Not only did they get their dates wrong, they also posted photos of obviously well-fed guards. I don’t recall any EO men looking that well fed!
It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but EOPS are elevating it to a new level.
I wonder if these scoundrels are going to submit my posthumous profits to my family?
Regardless, I am so tired of conmen and posers trying to claim their role in the actions of good men. I can only hope that their clients realise that EOPS are being totally untruthful in their claims.
However, it would be nice if firstname.lastname@example.org would contact me and explain my death to me.
