For the longest time, John McAfee, has said that he is being hounded by Federal agents in the United States of America, To that effect, he even announced a self-imposed exile and was living on a boat in international waters, which would make it impossible for the agents to nab him.
In the recent past he said, “The U.S. Gov. thinks it’s watching me. I’m the master of disinformation and obfuscation. Must be in.order to make McAfee Inc fight an army of hackers. It is me that is watching the U.S. Gov. You will soon see the truth. Silence me and hundreds will continue to release the Truth.”
The truth, whatever it is, must be pretty huge for the US government and which is why they must be chasing McAfee, as he claims. He added, “The IRS, using the NSA and the FBI, are harassing my former employees (Two were given houses), my business contacts (In Mexico no less), my banks, and even my auto mechanics. I will be publishing the full audio of these harassments soon. I invented the tech they use. I’m McAfee.”
Now, it turns out that McAfee has realized that the forces he’s fighting with, will leave no opportunity to apprehend him and he has decided that the best recourse is to go underground.

McAfee was in news earlier this month, when he offered to provide help to cryptocurrency exchange Binance, soon after it was hacked. At the time he had told Changpeng Zhao, the founder of Binance, “If I can help at all please let me know. Underneath my clown suit is still one of the most experienced cybersecurity experts on the planet. I’ve been doing it for 51 years. I am at your service.”
