Bahamas: Land speculation and fake web sites

Larry Smith at the Bahama Pundit blog reports that a fake web site has been set up to divert users away from Bahama Pundit and the articles published there about the Rum Cay development. “It appears that some people think these comments, and later information posted by me, are impacting their efforts to sell Bahamian land of questionable title to unsuspecting buyers over the Internet. There are any number of web sites out there purporting to sell beachfront lots on Rum Cay. And this is despite the fact that the various speculators on the island are feuding among each other over who owns what.”
