Cedrik / Cedric Brazeau returns, in a hacking attack on the Phuket Poker Community

this post is a cumulative effort of the entire Phuket Poker community. we'll pipe in as individuals to verify it. we wanted people to know for sure this isn't some vendetta by one individual or anything. over 25 of us contributed to the accumulation of data and understanding this. even more are likely affected.

Over the past few months, French Canadian Cedric Brazeau / Cedrik Brazeau aka Bluestaze has been trying to hack the computers of the poker community in Phuket. His tactics have included Burglary and Assault. This is not the first time Cedric has been a part of shady dealings in the Poker Community.

researching his history uncovers a very shady past. He has been reported to have been a part of a very similar hacking scheme a few years ago in Bangkok. He was also accused of contacting new 2+2ers in BKK, and drugging them while he goes out with them, and robbing their hotel rooms. (the details on this act are shakier as the victims were drugged, and these accusations weren't totally made public) A Third accusation was made of ripping off his roommates. that story can be read here:

http://www.pokercenter.com/forum/thr...ng-in-thailand

It is now our understanding that he has hired criminals to follow and surveiller us, used agents to build a portfolio of information on us, his targets. These criminals then conducted multiple burglaries that we know of, and probably a few that we dont, planting software on computers to be able to monitor our play. Using multiple accounts, he is working to defraud the people in our community. Our research into Cedric and his agents have led us to believe that they have also participated in Assault, Intimidation, and Bribery of innocent locals (and later, some of our community) in order to achieve his ends.

We, as a community, have prided ourselves on being very welcoming and open to other players who wanted to join us.. offering assistance, information, and friendship to our fellow 2+2'ers coming to visit or live here, and Cedric set out to exploit that as best he could. It's a shame, but this will certainly negatively affect that openness which we took such pride in.

We feel that it is not only our duty to try and defend our phuket poker community, but also our Thai Neighbors, some of whom are being victimized as well... but now to defend other poker communities as well. Over the years, he's obviously been working on his technique. he was still sloppy this time. it's hard to imagine now that he's been exposed in Phuket that he won't either try us again, or move on to another Poker community somewhere... so we hope any of you who are a part of public or semi public poker communities will do your best to be vigilant in your security efforts in the future... and obviously if Cedric shows up in your area, take the necessary precautions.

the following images are years old, and out of date. hopefully, we'll be able to add some up to date images soon.

could you provide pokerclient SN's and forum SN's for clarifications
some ppl might have been approached without knowing someone was attempting to hack/scam them
those infos could be helpful

Those pics were taken in november 2009. I was part of the crew there and Ive met Cedrik several times in real life. Since he has moved to Thailand, theres a lot of stories surrounding him, mostly shady and horror stories.

This. I don't doubt you guys, but details and evidence are really lacking as to his current crimes, screen names, location. etc.

That being said, pretty scary stuff. I always keep my computer secure but never thought about someone breaking in.

For once that there is a PC link on 2+2 it's gotta be for a scam.

I'm curious about the actions the community are about to take against the said guy in this matter. Would police be able to help?

I don't think it's illegal to simply have a poker account w/ money on it and software installed

pool your moneys together as a community to pay for a lawyer and ask him for legal counsel. see if you can approach law enforcement and try to collect evidence and have a complete report with all the details of your various interactions with this guy.
