How can you explain that he warned about this event few weeks before, week by week, without giving a precise date? You think that he posted his 104 hours warning just that, all of a sudden? You're wrong. I can vouch for what I saw.

I don't have to explain what I haven't seen evidence of. Your assurances aren't evidence, since I don't know your trustworthiness. Same goes for every internet persona vouching for them.

I considered the image of the facebook page as admissible evidence. If you have similar screenshots of the pages where he warned week after week, I am willing to consider them. So far I haven't seen any.

In any case, whether those predictions were real or not is an academic discussion. For the reasons I detailed in my previous post any new claims by someone claiming to be him are bound to be fake.

Look i don´t think we are trying to pursuade anyone into believing this, there is no need. Let the people interested in the topic discuss this and try to find out more about this guy, in this thread. No need for us to try to convince you of the credibility of these predictions here, if you still are not convinced. Hell i am not even sure i am convinced myself, i still find the story intriguing enough and credible enough to warrant further investigations.

You gotta love that reliable screenshot, lol.



this is simple to do, reliable? yeah if you actually bothered looking on his facebook page and backdate the original post then you can see reliability for yourself.


I saw the original post and so did hundreds of people. after the quake happened which led me to mitchell coombes. why eles would you think i was following him from then, he accepted my friend request and i had to make sure by looking at his previous post he made the 'prediction' which infact he did. its not hard to look on his wall posts by checking the dates. people are jumping into assumptions it is doctored, why? because you are a skeptic and you hadnt bother to look on his facebook previous posts reguarding when the prediction and warning was given out. with the new timeline you can look back to march 2011 and see that exact post. but now his facebook is gone. been following him ever since, he also made a prediction about austrailias stock exchange? i think that came true.

i just wish you all would do your own research. the original picture which isnt doctored, them comments on his post reguarding the warning was still here and you could of read the comments and checked the dates yourselves. ah well, guess you'l never see now.


just to add he even said he posted comments and even video links for people to see for themselves, how much dumber can people really get? its like showing them something in plain site, and they go dum uh-oh no no this isnt right

and comments about hiding status's, its ludacris, people post on his wall all the time, his facebook wall is always flooded, if he was to hide whatever status post it would be in the mist before revealing it because when the status is posted there will always be a time where the post was created, the post doesnt just jump back up to the top of the page you know... god its like talking to children

I am not saying anyone should convince me either. When someone asked how I remained unconvinced, I stated how.

I too am voicing various possibilities. How is that not investigation?

Do you think if what the guy claimed is true, anything posted under that name after it became popular will continue to be true? Do you think people who have the capability to engineer earthquakes and keep it under the wraps don't have the capability to track and silence or at least hack the internet persona? It is not as if anyone knows who this guy actually is, where he lives and can verify that it is that person who is making the predictions under the internet persona.

Mitchell plants threads like this every few months or so, to keep his own ego inflated, he will use alter egos to raise the questions, then more alter egos to answer them and keep the momentum going.

I know that many of the members on here have been following this since day one and already know the score, we are not relying on heresay and rumours about his shady past. Many of us spent many hours of searching to find out the truth, in fact I know of a couple of members on ATS who managed to track down an awful lot of really telling info on him. The very fact that he DID try to defraud the St Vincent DePaul organisation of money, which myself and another couple of members had communications with the organisation itself about the situation.

He is a self publicist and his own biggest fan, although he has a handful of friends which help him to market his ego. He has been sloppy enough in the past to start his dummy accounts on the same day, then leave them dormant for months, only to use the first post to comment on him. He generates lots of stars and flags that way and bumps the threads as well, he throws himself in to his publicity in a big way.

One only has to look at the way he used dummy accounts to " appear " on ATS as though he had been summoned by royal command, then proceeded to be so rude and abusive to other posters. He is a hoaxer and deserved to be banned, however he will not go away and has hinted that he may actually use a false name to continue to predict, however his ego will make it essential to tell everyone what this alternative name is, so that he is not left out of the equation.

Ultimately people have to look back at his one and only prediction which has been hailed as the first of many, how did the internet find out about this amazing prediction, AFTER the event, when random people started to alert sites such as this claiming that people should " check him out ". If this first prediction is clearly a scam, which is why he had to keep editing things after people started investigating, then nothing that has come after that has any credit either.

And that would be the facebook page and posts that no longer exist, right?

OK, I'll just go check, wont be long.

I didn't say it was reliable, only that admissible evidence. But yes, I would consider it reliable because if it had been doctored evidence that couldn't have been cross-verified that the time it was produced, it would have contained more specific information. The fact that it is lacking the specifics means at the time it was created it was possible to go to the Facebook website and verify it.

fair enough if he was proven a fraud, but ive not yet seen or read about it, so i wont be commenting or voicing a stupid sarcastic opinion like other people do, but he did tell people to bet on their life savings on the predicted scores before the scores came out to be accurate. so whats your opinion on that?

Exactly, that is what most of us believe i think. Him getting Govt-napped, most of this friends and family/relatives as well perhaps. Or at least silenced in some way. And that is exactly why this thread is needed, imho. Without it no one would care about this guy it seems. Or his predictions. He seems to have disappeared after all?

I think it is safe to say (as noticed by several members) he is probably an active participant in this thread, so I doubt he is anywhere but sitting behind his keyboard wondering which way to try and convince the rest of us now.

I also think its safe to say i started this thread to ask if anyone knew where he was such as people who where on his friends list and had a closer connection. no to prove and convince his credibility.

Which is exactly how this whole Mitchell Coombes fiasco started in the first place, a post is planted, to get an audience, then the back patters keep the momentum going, not forgetting the fact that he always has at least two people who fight between themselves to keep things firey. He always operates in the same way, plus his alter egos are often quite easy to check up on.

Where is he ?

WHO CARES !

If you believe that, why do you fuel the fire? We also have a mod already in this thread ensuring us that if this guy where to ever sign up again he would be banned. Why so paranoid guys?

The mods can't ban people based on say so, they need proof so to be fair. IP addresses can be faked, or changed in some cases by simply resetting your router.

I'm sure the staff are working behind the curtains now trying to get to the bottom of the issue.

it doesnt matter, avons doing a good job with an existing thread where as ats is getting me no where, i made a thread to see if anyone who knows of him knows where he is and why his accounts have all been deleted, not your personal opinion crap. i only come on here see new topic labels, i dont even bother reading endless bickering rubbish.

Because my spider senses are tingling, as I am sure other members are, and the shills stand out a mile already. if you know what I mean ( I am sure you do ), so perhaps some soul serching is in order.

However the fire has already gone out, so it is just a case of warning against the threat of future fires.

That is a dead end. You can't care about someone you don't know is real. It was an internet persona that made certain predictions. If the person behind the persona was clever enough to maintain the persona without it being tracked back to him, he would be safe. If he wasn't, he would have received some harsh lessons. Either way I don't see anything to be achieved. What do you expect this thread to achieve, other than publicity for an internet persona who may or may not be real?

Insight as to where to find his next prediction, or some plausible explanation that would explain his accuracy in previous predictions. That is all.

So if the mods suspect anyone in this forum to be Mitch Coombes they will ban him... you must be kidding right? Mitchell Coombes is not to be heard from... all his accounts are down. Can't believe what I'm hearing. Typical ATS jargon. Good info...
