Open discussion / Russian gang steal Bitcoin worth millions
« on: January 18, 2018, 04:52:57 PM »
Russian gang steal Bitcoin worth millions from young Russian couple in Phuket condo extortion =>

A Russian couple have gone to Thai police to say that compatriots posing initially as Interpol had entered their condominium and forced them to give passwords before stealing nearly 4 million baht in Bitcoin.

Maxsim Latsoka, 23, and Anna Nikurina, 28, were returning home on Monday at 10pm and as they entered their fourth floor condo room in Muang district they were bundled into the room by two Russian men.

The men said they were Interpol from Russia investigating Bitcoin irregularities. The men put a hood over Maxim and wrapped a towel around the head of his girlfriend before another Russian man came into the bedroom.

He ordered them to give the password of their computer notebook then the password of their Bitcoin account. If they didn't they were told they would be injected with drugs and handed over to the Thai police

The gang were in the room for a total of five hours, reported Thai Rath.

They managed to get 100,000 Euros in Bitcoin emptying the account. Then they fled with the notebook warning the couple they would be back to carry out their threats if they went to the Thai police.

A Thai forensics team were at the condo yesterday. The Russian couple initially were scared to report the theft but a friend who is a volunteer policeman persuaded them that it was better to report it.

Thai police said that they have information that the gang have fled to Malaysia.

Arrest warrants are being prepared. =>

Yeah, Freelancer is cool.  That is where I originally found Luciano.  Now we deal directly with each other and skip the middleman (person?). One thing to be careful of, particular with Indians, is that the person responding to to your notice can be a broker or something and you don't' have direct contact with the person doing the work who might not speaka da Engarishe.

I know you said Khon Kaen. If no luck with that, you might want to contact my web guy Luciano Vitetti in Argentina.  He has done a lot of WP stuff for me; fast, quality work and very reasonable prices.  More back end than design, but he is very talented and  may be able to do what you need. Really nice guy, conversational English and no communication problems.

FYI, in case y'all don't know.  It is not required for you to appear in person to make your 90 Day Report.  It is perfectly OK for an "agent" (anyone you choose) to do it for you. Admittedly, it is not very demanding.  On the other hand, an hour saved is an hour earned ! can't remember the last time I did one in person, but many years ago now.  Candidly, I don't quite understand why this is allowed if the point is to confirm you residence.  Oh, well.  Better not look a gift horse in the mouth.

Blocker, tell us more about your ideas for mining.  And how do you propose to overcome the cost of electricity problem?  The technical is way over my head.  I am not even sure how the "mining" metaphor plays out technically.  However, apparently, so far as I understand, it does require a lot of processing power and electricity.  I am afraid that I am usually sucking hind teet on this stuff.  By the time I understand what is going on, the moment has long past.

From what I have heard, "mining" becomes a "Catch 22" when the cost of electricity (it takes a lot) offsets the profits made in "acquiring" coins.  Those who are doing this in a serious way have set up operations where really cheap electricity is available or producible.  For example if you had property by a flowing river where there was already a turbine generator operating.  I also heard that techies tend to be the ones interested in mining while entrepreneurs prefer simply investing.  Interesting nonetheless. Way over my head!

Google has mandated that all websites have what is called a security certificate to make transactions, particular financial transactions and those which exchange personal information of users is protected.  You can tell which sties have complied with addresses beginning with https:// Note the addition of the "s" after http. Those sites that do not conform will display security warnings.  It just shows you how powerful google has become, being able to impose mandatory standards across the internet.  This is the first time I have seen the complete blockage firefox is giving the gov site. But there is something improper with the the site's certificate; set up incorrectly, expired, bogus or whatever. Or maybe it is a glitch in firefox.
