I will now post here what I had posted in the members Fire Circle. Prairy
The following information came from a concerned individual within the sphere of influence of Vitruvian Society, Invisible Slavery and Unslaver organizations. Said individual is investigating the disappearance of Gary Bassett who was head of the Vitruvian Society and said individual will be referred to as "Investigator" from here on out.
Investigator originally stumbled across the Vitruvian website independent of anyone in the Vitruvian/Invisible Slavery/Unslaver circle. This occured several years before actual interaction with Gary Bassett and associates located at his offices near Santa Cruz, California. Subsequently Investigator was re-introduced to the Vitruvian website and asked to view private password protected information by one of Gary Bassett's associates. After having read some of that material Investigator met with Gary and associates to discuss possibilities of doing business. In brief, the item or topic of discussion was what Gary described as a way to generate an unlimited amount of money without taking from anyone. Gary specifically used the term "win win" and said that nobody loses anything.
Over a period of time, Investigator developed an overall opinion of the financial "win win" as possibly being derived by fraudulant means. Investigator decided to put distance between Investigator and Gary Bassett and Gary's associates.
Around this time there was a falling out of extended world-wide associates to Vitruvian, Invisible Slavery and Unslaver organizations. In part this was due to the same opinion Investigator developed about the financial scheme, but also the fallout occurred over other items of note involving Invisible Slaver and Unslaver. As a matter of fact, Unslaver came into being as a result of the Invisible Slavery organizational breakup, and one of Gary Bassett's close associates continued with Invisible Slavery apart from all else, who turned their attentions to Unslaver.
During this fallout period, a hacking of websites occured on the Ghostchild, Unslaver and Vitruvian domains. Investigator has determined through investigation that Vitruvian and Invisible Slavery lost all of their proprietary information as well as Ghostchild. However, Vitruvian had backup data and was able to get everything or nearly everything back online after said incident.
Subsequent to the hacking event, roughly 10 or 11 months later, Investigator became alerted by means not being shared, that something was wrong with Gary Bassett. Investigator phoned Gary and couldn't reach him, but surmized that Gary would want to speak to him, so this caused a double alarm. Investigator then tried reaching Gary's close associate located in his offices and could not reach him either. Investigator then tried reaching anyone at Vitruvian, and could not reach anyone.
Investigator then tried other means to reach anyone at all in the sphere of influence of Vitruvian, Invisible Slavery and Unslaver. Investigator was able to reach several of the external associates. There were many discussions between Investigator and said external associates. Investigator learned that Gary's close associate in the Vitruvian offices reported that Gary had disappeared along with many millions of dollars of other peoples money and neither could be located. The close associate's opinion expressed was that Gary left of his own free will and took the money. The close associate also reported that he was working with the Santa Cruz sherrif's department and the FBI on that matter.
Subsequent to this revelation, Investigator performed an independent investigation of the events surrounding Gary's disappearance. Within a few days, Investigator stumbled across a news article on Indymedia's website talking about Gary Bassett being indicted in Illinois over the missing money issue as well as being a child molestor.
Investigator also found at that time a "MySpace" website for Gary Bassett which was really derrogatory towards Gary.
Investigator then decided to phone the prosecutor in Illinois, the Santa Cruz sherrifs department and the FBI. Investigator was successful in reaching the prosecutor's office mentioned in the article on the Indymedia website. Prosecutor reported to Investigator that nothing was true about that report, and she also reported that she contacted every federal and state prosecutors offices in the entire state of Illinois and could safely say nothing at all was true about the article. Within hours of that conversation, said article totally disappeared off all Indymedia's websites in every language.
Investigator also spoke to a handful of personnel at both the FBI and the Santa Cruz sherrifs department. The FBI stated they did not have any case open on Gary Bassett or Vitruvian and if they ever did they would call Investigator for more information. The Santa Cruz sherrifs department also said there was no investigation whatsoever on Gary Bassett or Vitruvian. However, the Santa Cruz sherrifs department openly challenged Investigator and asked Investigator if Investigator was delusional. Investigator left a phone number with Santa Cruz sherrifs department as well. To this day no phone call have ever been received about Gary Bassett or Vitruvian or missing money.
Therefore Investigator is under the opinion that Gary Bassett's close associate was "lying through his teeth". Investigator has email evidence of said close associate admiting to destruction of evidence shortly after Gary Bassett's "disappearance". It is the opinion of Investigator that said close associate is guilty of one or more of several crimes. The possibility exists that said close associate is either a murderer or a party to murder. Said "other people's money" may be a motive or a cause.
Investigator also performed other routes of investigation through three other associates of Gary Bassett who were not party to Vitruvian, Invisible Slavery and/or Unslaver. Investigator was successful in contacting two of the three "other" associates. By the time Investigator contacted them, Investigator was of the opinion that Gary had fallen into bad circumstances, partially from the lies of said close associate, and partially from alternate sources. When Investigator revealed these details to Gary's "other" associates, both of same revealed they had the same general opinions as Investigator.
Investigator's leads have mostly grown cold since. It's been months now since any further leads have been dug up on the whereabouts of Gary Bassett. To add to the general picture, Gary's close associate cannot be found presently, and none of the phone numbers to Vitruvian offices, Gary Bassett and said close associate are working. Lastly, the Vitruvian website is no longer functioning however the domain name has been put on an administrative hold by the registrar. Investigations as to administrative holds on domain names revealed that some holds are made in interest of the client and some holds are made for other reasons entirely, which may include potential legal disputes of some kind. The registrar is not indicating which is which in this case.
Investigator's leads have mostly grown cold. It's been months now since anything more was found. Investigator routinely performs online searches regarding Vitruvian, Invisible Slavery, Gary Bassett and associates. However, Investigator discovered the Ghostchild references to the hacking and disappearance of proprietary data on it's website.
Investigator is somewhat under the opinion that the Ghostchild incident may be related to the hacking of Vitruvian. What may have occured was international banking interests (possible victoms of the money from nothing scheme of Gary's) hiring a hacker to find out as much information as could be found regarding Vitruvian and because Ghostchild was hosted on the same server it too was violated. Subsequently the original hacker may have shared the penetration with other hackers on the internet (such as university students in Manitoba) who then caused the damage related to Ghostchild. However, Investigator is also under the opinion that the reverse could have occured. It may have been the Ghostchild website that was originally hacked and as a result Vitruvian was violated as well. In either case there are some mighty odd occurrences since with Gary Bassett, the demise of Vitruvian and the disappearance of Gary's close associate.
Lastly, Investigator also discovered through various means that the "money from nothing" concept was in fact not derived by Gary, that Gary was merely the one with the resources to make it happen. Rather, the concept was brought to Gary's attention through Gary's close associate. The one who lied about the FBI and the Santa Cruz sherrifs department.
