John McAfee video - stranger than fiction

Played the "crazy card"--

John McAfee, Back in the U.S., Says He Played the "Crazy Card" in Guatemala | Maximum PC: "This whole time it appeared that John McAfee, founder of McAfee antivirus (now owned by Intel) had lost his marbles, but really he was just playing the "crazy card" in hopes of trumping Belizean officials. Seeing as how the 67-year-old is now back in the United States, his convincing plan appears to have worked. It came at a cost, however, as McAfee says he left his fortune behind. McAfee, who had been on the run for more than a month and was sought for questioning in an overseas murder case involving his neighbor, landed in Miami last night, according to ABC News. . .While in detention, McAfee says he faked a heart attack to avoid being deported to Belize, where he claims the government wants him dead."I have nothing now," McAfee said. "I've got a pair of clothes and shoes, my friend dropped off some cash." McAfee says he left about 15 properties and some $20 million in investments in Belize, along with his 20-year-old and 17-year-old girlfriends, who he is focused on getting back."

Sounds to me like he's still playing the "crazy card."
