David Copperfield is under the FBI microscope, and now TMZ may know why.

Last week, the FBI raided Copperfield’s Las Vegas warehouse and seized digital camera equipment and a hard drive to a computer — this, after a Seattle woman accused Copperfield of sexually assaulting her in the Bahamas.

Sources now tell TMZ Copperfield designed part of his show around “a system for picking up women.” During his show, David goes into the audience and chooses women to come on stage. We’re told that if David likes a girl, he’ll use code words with assistants like “mama” and “secrecy.” The assistants mark the women on a map of the inside of the Hollywood Theater at MGM Grand. After the show, the women are brought backstage — and that’s where the profiling begins.

The women are told that David may use them in his show when he comes to their hometown. They are then photographed with a digital camera, asked questions like, “What is your favorite men’s cologne?” and “Where do you like to vacation?” We’re told one of those vacation spots mentioned by staff is the Bahamas, where the accuser claims she was assaulted. Copperfield owns a cluster of islands in the Bahamas — which he bought for $50 million.

This may explain the FBI’s interest in David’s camera system and hard drive. If the accuser is a woman who was brought on stage, the FBI would be interested in a possible M.O.

Copperfield’s attorney says the sexual assault charges are false, and told TMZ that the magician’s recent cancellation of an Indonesian tour had nothing to do with the allegations, but instead involved the contract with the Indonesian show promoter.

hi my name is kristie chirgwin i am from massachusetts. two years ago i went to the mgm grand for a hair show (i ma a hairstylist) and while i was there i attended a david copperfield show. i have a story to tell about my time at the show. at the show i caught this pickle he threw into the audience and this meant i was going to participate on stage in a trick. he was impregnating a girl without touching her and i was to guess the baby’s name. weird trick but afterward i was taking off stage and went backstage with an assistant they said to wait after the show to meet david and get an autograph. i got more than that.. while i was in line to meet him i was pulled again backstage to hear that i had a look david liked and that i would be in a show he was going to produce soon. being only 19 i was young and naive and thought this would be my big break. they gave me a survey asking me my basic information then some strange questions which i thought were like personality questions. they asked things like swhats your favorite flower, cologne, perfume, drink, food, place to vacation, color and so on. so then david came out and we took a picture together they said they would send it to me after it was developed. the next day i got a few calls one from his assistant jen and then a few hours later i recieved a voicemail from him! that was exciting at the time i have saved the message all this time and so i have proof this story really happened. the message basically said he wanted to see what my plans were for the night and left a number to reach him at. still thinking he wanted to talk about the show i called back a little later. to my surprise he himself answered the phone i was shocked and stuttered the whole time. he said he wanted me and my friends to come to the show that night and then go have a drink afterward. i then said can my friends come to the drink? and he replied “how hard is it for you to get away from them?”i knew right then we wouldnt be talking about a show but that he was hitting on me. i said id get back to him after i talked to my friends and when i called back i said no to a seemingly angry assistant who still tried to get me to go after i had already so no. im happy i protected myself and didnt go but i hope he gets caught but i did want to add more evidence to the case. my email is stokie689@aol.com
