It was the electronic trail left by Marcus Einfeld the day he was caught speeding that helped detectives unravel his web of deceit and ultimately stained his reputation, police have revealed.

The fate of the former Federal Court judge - who was sentenced to at least two years in jail for lying - showed how authorities can use technology to retrace almost any person's steps on a given day, a private investigator says.

"The big lesson now is don't try and con anyone, stay on the up and up," said private investigator Charlie Rahim, of the Charlie's Angels investigation company.

"If you're 'on the grid' - that's a term that means you're on anything electronic like mobile phones, the internet, credit cards .... anything linked to a database - then they can check anything on what you've done."

Mr Rahim said authorities - with proper warrants - had access to a wide array of phone logs, camera footage and account statements that allowed them to piece together a person's day.

"The mobile phone is where authorities get the best information - they tell who you called, who called you, when you spoke to them, where you spoke from.

"And with mobile phones, even if you've not made calls, it's possible for the phone company to use the antenna to tell what area you are in.

"It can even track the speed you reach the next [phone] tower and calculate how fast you travelled and in which direction."

It was this sort of data tracking that unravelled Einfeld's lies, when he asserted he was not driving his car when it was clocked going 10kmh over the speed limit in the Sydney suburb of Mosman.

"This map here, wherein we've plotted a number of series of electronic data, including financial records, telephone records ... it essentially illustrates a signature of movement of a person on a particular day," NSW Fraud Squad detective Tony Stenberg told ABC's Four Corners last night.

Police were able to use the combination of phone records, credit card bills and other records to discover Einfeld had booked a table for lunch with his old friend Vivian Schenker at Pilu restaurant in Sydney's north in January 2006



protip: ditch the mobile phone, get rid of the e-tag, delete your facebook & don't lie - eepecially if you're a judge :lol:

I can't wait till we are all chipped, and the apocolipse comes! Doom and gloom all over the world! Then and only then Jesus will return!

Funny, have this argument with many christians and the majority dont want the end times to be upon us. Dont they realise that this is what their faith is all about, to be with the lord? For 2000 years people have been waiting. They should be excited that they could witness the end times and total destruction of the Earth, for he aint gona come till it all happens...... the bible told me so! :twisted:

I've always believed that grids are awesome, especially the ones in Ableton and Traktor, and also the ones that stop cows being hit by cars when they venture onto the road from the farm.

Surveillance societies are scary. Everyone feels the same way, but it only becomes a huge problem when the government decides to abuse the immense trust we must place in it when it monitors our every move. It's become a huge issue with the NSA and AT&T illegally conspiring to monitor every Internet packet, then the US Congress awarding retroactive immunity to telecom companies accused of illegal wiretapping..

However, complaining about surveillance in a case where it has uncovered corruption at the very highest level of the judiciary system, a case where a high court judge has himself tried to place himself above the law, could be a little misguided.
