Thanks for visiting All Things Vice.

I’m Eileen (Eiley) Ormsby, a Melbourne-based writer and journalist whose work has appeared in The Age and Kill Your Darlings among others.  I also write the occasional live music review for Inpress magazine just for the free gigs.

My previous lives have included that of a corporate lawyer and production manager for cinema advertising.  My interest in All Things Vice came about when researching and writing a story on Silk Road, the online drugs marketplace.  This led me deeper into the murky bowels of the Dark Web and spawned the blog you’re reading now.

The aim of the blog is to give a non-hysterical insight to things ranging from the slightly naughty travel hacking and BASE jumping to the darkest of dark areas such as child porn.  And everything in between.

I hope you enjoy All Things Vice.

Oh, and I seriously doubt that this ever works, but if you would like to support All Things Vice, feel free to sling me some Bitcoin: 1HCdtvW4dUWkYbmJbXzbvgLFiUUTdB5GG7 :)

Update: it does work! I’ve received 4 little donations so far and I appreciate every single one of them xoxo to you!

    Eiley, loved the article today. Are you aware that US Police and ebay will not touch a scammer if he is operating from the US but does not scam those within North America. Even when you know their full name address and phone number and visit the US Police they refuse to act.

    I have three such cases recorded but there must be dozens more.

    • I heard all sorts of horrific stories whilst doing this piece and spoke to several people in law enforcement, ACCC etc. They all said basic variations of the same thing – it’s too hard to catch them and victims will never see a cent of their money.

    Hi Eiley,
    My name is Leonard Siragusa and I am a real estate agent in Fitzroy North. Just thought I’d let you know about the scam that was sent to me. But of course I deleted it straight away. This was a response to an email enquiry I received regarding a property I have for sale – see below

    Good Day My Friend

    From your contact i see you as a very legal profile person,i picked interest to buy your property and also want to handle a very confidential business deal with you, i will need your assistance and advice because i am planing to invest my money in your country soonest,i contacted you because i believe you are legal, and can handle a lucrative business as an experienced legal citizen.
    My Drear friend i have a business proposal for you. I am a captain with the United Nations troop in Iraq,on war against terrorism. Based on the United States legislative and executive decision for withdrawing troops from Iraq come this year,I have been deployed to come and work in your country’s military base soonest.Our mission is to help beef up terrorist targeted states,mostly the United states and the European Union on the war against terrorism.

    On the other hand I want to inform you that I have in my possession the sum of {$16.2 MILLION DOLLARS CASH} which i got from crude oil deal.
    I deposited this money with a red cross agent informing him that we are making contact for the real owner of the money.It is under my power to approve whoever comes forth for this money.
    I wish to use this money for charity purposes in Turkey,where we have about 3 million Iraqi refugees and Sudan where we have currently the highest numbers of refugees displaced as a result of war.You need to visit such places. I want to invest the money on stock fish from Norway to this refugees because base on my experience on battle ground in this places, they lack a lot of fish and meat to add to their meager and unpalatable meals which they get in little quantity just to keep them living until God knows when the problem ends.Instead of allowing this terrorists to get the money and spend it on purchasing arms from Russia, it is better channeled to saving the world.

    I cannot move this money to the United states because I will be in Europe for about 3years,so I need someone I could trust.If you accept,I will transfer the money to Europe where you will be the beneficiary,because I am a uniformed person and I cannot be parading such an amount so I need to present someone as the beneficiary.
    I am an American and an intelligence officer for that so I have a 100% authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic courier service .I just need your acceptance and all is done.
    Please if you are interested in this transaction I will give to you the complete details you need for us to carry out this transaction successfully.I decided to find someone that is real and not imaginary and that is why I went to a secured car site where I can be sure that the person is real. I believe I can trust you. where we are now we can only communicate through our military communication facilities which is secured so nobody can monitor our emails,then I can explain in details to you.I will only reach you through email,because our calls might be monitored,I just have to be sure whom I am dealing with.

    If you are interested please send me your personal mobile number so I can call you for further inquiries when I am out of our military network.I am writing from a fresh email account so if you are not interested do not reply to this email and please delete this message,if no response after 3days I will then search for someone else.I am doing this on trust,you should understand and you should know that as a trained military expert I will always play safe in case you are the bad type,but I pray you are not. {$16.2 MILLION DOLLARS CASH }is a lot of money which is the dream of anyone. I wait for your contact details so we can go on.In less than 5days the money should have been noted on your account and I will come over for my money.I will give to you 20% from the {$16.2 MILLION DOLLARS CASH }. and 80% is for me.
    I hope I am been fair on this deal.please contact me if you are interested in this deal,i am ready to give you all information and details about this deal and your roll to play, i await your reply Regards Capt James Homer

    I want to thank you for your recent article ‘Dancing with Molly’ in The Age, in which you highlighted the many therapeutic applications of MDMA. I was pleasantly surprised to hear mention of MAPS (the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) in mainstream media. I have been following their work for some time and cannot commend it enough. Some really progressive commentary Eileen – it shows that there are still some journalists out there who are interested in depth and truth over superficial catch-phrases and buzz words. Go you :)

    I’ve sent a question, hopefully you see it…by the way you might want to either obfuscate your emails using CloudFlare, use ASCII code to make harvesting impossible, or replace @ with (at)…just a suggestion…
