To those of you coming from The New Criminologist's website - welcome!
Before our main feature, we thought you'd all like to see some funny, creepy and disturbing items we found
on the Net concerning Christopher Berry-Dee, the man behind The New Criminologist, and a guy who has a
vendetta about our little corner of the Internet.
We don't necessarily share the viewpoints of the following - its all stuff posted by others that we happened
to run across while we were bored...
Let's start with a post from slashlegal.com
Well that was fun, wasn't it? Don't know if all that was true or not - maybe Christopher Berry-Dee can writeSeems a UK "true-crime" author and artist who poses as an upright and
sought-after criminolgist, is actually the not-so-proud possessor of a
long criminal history.
Christopher Berry Dee has written a couple of "true crime" mass market
books and produced a video series, mostly on serial killers and murder
cases. He's also recently started up a Russian bride scam where the
unaware can buy a 'guide' to getting lucky in russia.
it all comes clear what's behind it, if one reads the newspaper
clippings listed here:
http://www.antiscam.net/data/cbd1.htm (if that doesnt work, try
there are 6 news clippings (follow the links below each clipping) from
various UK newspapers, showing Dee's illustrious career as a con man,
fraud and possible pedophile. He's declared bankruptcy in the past and
recently because he owes many people a huge amount of money, he's
scammed people by mail, he has done time for fraud and theft of personal
identification and bank information, and he was even picked up for
having sex with a 13 year old (those charges apparently dropped, no
doubt the girl was terrified of him. Why would she be terrorized?
Below, see the comments section for the posting on antiscam.com from
someone (nickname Dez) who claims to have known him for many years, who
"...It does not mention the fact that this man [Christopher Berry Dee]
is an evil sadistic person. However the writer of the article has not
witnessed this side of him, and obviously can only write things that
they know to be fact. However, I have personally witnessed violent
physical and verbal abuse against females and males (however, only those
weaker than himself) by this man. I have witnessed him ruin peoples
lives. I have known him for some years on a professional and personal
level, however, am now ashamed that I ever allowed myself to have any
association with him. Beware, this man is a fraud and a conman and has
an extremely sick, violent side to his personality, perhaps helping to
explain his infatuation with murder, torture and serial killers.
His exploitation of his 21 year old Russian wife is just another example
of the sick fantasy world in which he lives. It is about time that he
was exposed and all his lies and secrets were made public... "
If one delves into the antiscam.net web, doing a search on comments
about Dee, one can read a great number of posts about what a con he has
been, written by several parties.
Dee even had the nerve to post a recommendation, attributed to the
webmaster and owner of antiscam.net, on Dee's tawdry sex website where
he's is peddling a calendar of cheesecake photos of his wife, a booklet
on sex astrology, and how to get lucky with russian babes, among other
things. The owner of antiscam.net has disavowed ever recommending any
thing Dee is involved in. On Dee's other website he proclaims himself
as a world-renowned criminologist (yet if one reads his vita, one
realizes there is no academic accomplishment, most of the works he lists
do not exist as publications, the journal he "publishes" is simply a
pay-for-it online rag--but there was a contest one could enter by
sending Dee money. Also, his "Criminal Research Institute" (CRI) is
the "publisher" of the sex manual and the calendar--now that's the work
of a REAL criminologist!) The law enforcement agencies (including the
FBI) he cites for having solved cases for them claim not to have heard
Word to US law enforcement and US prison staff--if you hear of Dee
having been cleared in to your agency or facility (he's a serial killer
groupie), you might want to mention this to your intelligence units
because NCIC might not pick up his UK crimes. The guy is definately
not on the up and up.
an expose on himself one day...
Here's a nifty article that doesn't paint Christopher in a very good light. Not only does it point out a past
bankruptcy, but it seems to imply that he swindled folks out of their hard-earned money. According to this
article, Berry-Dee admitted to having a stolen check book and using it to purchase goods.
Did you enjoy that article? Nifty scarf, aye?
Now here's an odd item - it seems to say that Christopher was "remanded in custody," accused of having
sex with a 13 year old girl! Wow! Is that why he's making such a big fuss about the allegations made
against Toukee on this site? Is it because he wants everyone to think "oh, he's so against that sort of thing,
he can't possibly be a pederast, himself"??? I don't know - just a guess...
It's on the same page as another item - the kiddy sex blurb is below...
Things aren't looking so good for kindly Christopher Berry-Dee...
And what's this?!? Here's another article concerning a scandal surrounding Christopher! I wonder what
this one's all about?!?
And here's yet another! Will it ever end?!?
Well, I'm speechless... I don't know what to say... I guess this is the point where Christopher would plug
a new book, but I got nothing...
But actually, I'd like to thank my friends at http://www.antiscam.net for providing these great archived articles.
It seems Christopher doesn't have all that many friends on the Net...
So yes, that was all sad and creepy - so lets get to the comic relief. Chistopher has been angry at some of
our members for poking fun at the way he met his wife, Tanya. Someone came across
this website for Russian Brides that included a story about Christopher.
To put it briefly, Christopher was visiting the website "strictly for research:"
I love that opening. To me it sounds like the opening for a police report. I swear, officer I?m innocent - I wasAs a 49-year-old criminologist, author and true-crime TV producer, I was not in this chat room to seek
love, I was there as part of a research project.
only there as part of a research project!!!
So the story here is that Christopher was researching some story about people being scammed (something
he should know a lot about) while seeking a Russian bride, and became infatuated with Tanya's photo.
I just want to point out that we're sure Tanya is a very lovely lady. Tracey DeFeo recently spoke to her
over the phone, and found her to be charming. That's good enough for me! We just found the circumstances
funny as to how they met (on a web site where people can get a Russian bride). Maybe we're just
old-fashioned, I don't know...
Anyway, the article on their meeting can be found at http://www.womenrussia.com/story9.htm
