HOPE Speak Steven Rombom (Rambam) Charged


It turns out yesterday one of the planned speakers at HOPE Number 6 was arrested on Saturday and is being charged by the FBI.

Security Fix obtained a copy of the complaint against “Steven Rambam” the private investigator arrested Saturday at the Hope Number Six hacker conference in New York City. The government document says Rambam is an alias, and that his real name is Steven Rombom, so that is how he’ll be referred to here henceforth.

The complaint, available here as a PDF, charges Rombom with obstruction of justice and with witness tampering, alleging that in April 2006 Rombom impersonated a federal investigator at the request of a client who had hired him to locate a government informant who was central to the client’s money-laundering indictment in 2003.

Seems like it’s not unjust though, he is getting what he deserves. He was taking things a little bit too far.

The government claims that in April Rombom located and visited the California home of the informant’s in-laws, and introduced himself as an FBI agent, flashing what the informant’s mother-in-law described as “a laminated card with an official government gold seal or badge.”

The complaint says “ROMBOM told [the mother-in-law] that he was investigating the [informant], and that her son-in-law was a very bad and dangerous person, and that there were many things about the [informant] that the in-laws probably didn’t know,” such as that the informant had been in jail many times. Rombom also told the mother-in-law that her daughter was in danger because of the informant and that he was afraid for the safety of their daughter, the government says.

1 less speaker for HOPE next time then I guess?

    Steve Rombom has a terroism felony conviction, and spent 8 year in a mental institution. Much of his credentials are bogus, and his work exposing Nazi war criminals has previosly been proven to be a hoax. Big deep enough int ohis background and you will see he has a histry of fraud, of being a snitch, and of being illegally protected by the feds.

    Rombom is not jewish, and is actually born into a Italian Catholic family. He was give up for adopting shortly after birth, and was given to a jewish family with the last name of ROMBOM. When he was 6 years old the state put him in a mental hospital, where he spent 8 years. Afterwords, be joind a terrist group in NYC and waas involved in several bombing before be caught, chrged, ad convivted. He spent 40 months in Federal prison in Tallahasse, FL for the felony convictions.

    When he got out of prison the chnaged his name to hide his past, and became a government snitch and con artist.
    Dig below the surafe and you WILL find the truth.

    Snitch, Snitch, Snitch.
