I don't think a word of it is true. For a simple reason: these are serious crimes and McAfee is probably rational enough to recognize that it is harmless for him to brag about capers he didn't pull, while if it was true there would be heaps of evidence that ultimately points at him.

Illegal where? In Belize where he is wanted for murder anyway? I think it's fair to say he is simply burning his bridges to a country he has no intention of returning to and this could be part of the reason he is not going back: " McAfee has refused to turn himself in for questioning saying he fears Belizean police would kill him."

I think he is confident the US is not going to allow his extradition although the US does have an extradition treaty with Belize.
