Now, about BadBoyReport.

“Cadillacer” is In all probability, not an individual.  It appears that Cadillacer is a bot (robot) that scrapes personal information from the online sources and then  reconstitutes that information with  flaming aspersions of wrongdoing against victims.  it has been suggested by some that this is part of an Internet extortion scheme.

On Nov 02, 2013, there were more than 80,000 results returned for a Google search for the exact phrase “posted by cadillacer”. this incredible number of postings is the main evidence supporting the guess that it is a robot rather than a real person. Alternatively, it could be a group of individuals in an organized “Boiler Room” operation.

Try the search yourself:

The Cadillac user name is a central element of an Internet shakedown scheme involving the website (recently changed from, presumably due to litigation with a similar website in the United States) that  suggests a $9,999.00 “donation” if a victim wishes to have the defamatory allegations deleted from the website, and  as a consequence also disappearing from Google search results. It is likely that the operators of the scheme will do a “find and replace” and  randomize the Cadillacer user name so that the scheme is not so obvious in the future. The 80,000+ results have been memorialized with the following screen shot taken on Nov 02,2013:
