British cybercops may have been duped in arrest of LulzSec leader?

Arrest of LulzSec leader 'Topiary' may be scam to get the real one off the hook

By  

In the log, a chatter identified as the real Topiary reveals a plan to try to recover from the doxing by pretending he doesn't know any Daniel Sandberg, and continue as he had before, and his frustration that the plan had not yet taken the heat off the real Topiary by getting the fake one arrested:

Topiary: if I go hide then people will assume the dox are right

Topiary : so I'll just act like they failed hard

[removed]: True that - so you need to make a big show of disproving them

Topiary: yeah well, this is my plan

Topiary also reveals he stole his current nickname from a British man he described only as "a troll," who turned the tables on Topiary by causing trouble online while claiming to be the LulzSec leader.


Topiary: I'll just keep denying it until they try to go after the troll

Topiary: then they'll think that's me and harass him

...

Topiary: I'm hoping someone will go after him and think it's me, then I'll act all scared etc

...

Topiary : just hoping that they'll take the bait

Topiary : the f***** has been using Topiary for like a year

Topiary : trolling everyone

Topiary : for no reason

Topiary : so now we troll him, hope he's getting raided

Topiary: well whatever, we both discussed this like last year

Topiary: so...

Topiary: then I'll stop my twitter and everything

Topiary: but it isn't F***** WORKING

[removed]: make it look like they got the right guy

Topiary: yup

...

[removed]: frame up this damn trollfaggot, and "carry on"

Topiary: hope it blows over and they start doxing Ireland [troll] or Scotland [troll] or wherever the f***UK part he's from

Topiary: anyway I trust you so yeah

Topiary: we can keep this between us

[removed]: Wont say a word bro

[removed]: just take care

Topiary: okay gotta go

Topiary: thanks for advic

[removed]: bye!

DailyTech acknowledges there's no way yet to know whether the plot and the chatlog are genuine or that the plot Topiary reveals isn't out of date.
