The mystery of Kim Schmitz
Tue, 20 Apr 2010 4:56p.m.
Chrisco Mansion is something of a mystery – along with the man reported to be its new owner - Kim Schmitz.
Campbell Live has been trying to get to the bottom of who he is, and what he does.
John Campbell drove out there, to ask him for an interview, in person; a security guard told him, politely but firmly, to go away.
In the meantime, he's been drawing himself to the attention of Sideswipe readers in The New Zealand Herald, by parking, badly, outside Auckland Zoo, in a black Rolls Royce, with the number plate, God.
God? More like "odd".
Judge for yourself.

As a german who normally hates the bold freaking american capitalists, like the bush family, I see him as one of the only german guys, who succeeds worldwide in his businees in a one man show. Mr.Ackermann and his share-holder-guys are little wussies compared to him and his influence. And if you watch the video, you have to agree to every little aspect!
I am waiting for the answer from the big company lawyers.
But thanks to the US. They showed us how corrupted systems work worldwide - in any case where power and money is in.
Infact that's an example how people should work together!
Next cases will be Monsanto, Procter&Gamble; McDonalds etc.!
The private Sec guys already got some work.
Good luck helping an old business going down!
I will grab some popcorn!

As a TV journalist working for German TV I was naturally captivated by this story. What it failed to deliver, however, was an explanation how this weird guy made his money. And why he behaves like a maniac obsessed with himself and his gadgets. Certainly not a fine example of my German breed. I'd love to help you out researching his background. It's not the first time I was involved in unmasking a German fraudster in NZ.

This article while quite interesting actually says very little about the man except that he has no respect for the law or common decency. To have him driving around our village with reckless disregard of our neighbourhood would be about the last thing any sane individual would want. There is so much in legitimate print, (whatever that is) about this person which alludes to his nefarious past that it is a wonder he was ever allowed entry into this country.
With New Zealanders being some of the most inovative writers of computer code in the world, the question has to be asked: "Why would we need another "hacker" (if that's indeed what he is)in this country." If this guy hasn't yet aroused the curiosity of Customs and Immigration to the point where his true designs here are investigated, then someone should definitely be directed to do so.
