1  Economy / Scam Accusations / Almost ~$10,000 in stolen funds, hacker located on Bitcoin Talk Forms! on: May 16, 2016, 04:29:58 PM
With a ton of help from the community I have been tracking almost $10,000 is stolen crypto funds, and we have a good lead! It seems an "Ethical Hacker" (https://bazaarbay.org/b26788279ce73de5b53de7a32c4b74114c932e81/listing/5fd045457e0ff9596d43203c5ff831d1cc5421b0) named Paul Golding (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=838056) has my funds! I have filed a local and British police report and have written to the dozen or so e-mail address he has all over the internet, (no response yet).

What is the best way to go about this? Even if the UK authorities do get involved I would never likely see the funds, I don't want to scare him either, he might just disappear (seems like it already). I have all his front company info (https://ghostbin.com/paste/xqz9k) but is goes nowhere.

I am offering a reward of 1/2 of recovered funds or 1 btc for info that leads to any of their return. In my e-mail I have offered to him that I will drop the reports if he return the funds, any other ideas?

Thanks all!



Background (re-post)

   I kept 500 Ether, 1,000 Litecoin and 500 PPC in a cold wallet in a password protected .rar file on my desktop, when I happened to check my watch address yesterday all the balances were emptied two days ago.

   I made two mistakes (1) I download a lot from Torrent sites, (2) I kept ALL my "cold" storage paper wallets in one encrypted WinRar file with a 12 character password. I thought this security was enough and am still at a loss as to what happened.

   The other day I noticed a program running in the Task Manager called, "Wool Department", there was no google results for it, so I closed it but it kept coming back up (on Windows). Next I got an e-mail from Microsoft about verification, then a few other sites I have not used for a long time. My email was hacked years ago, so I changed my password and did not connect the two events at all.

My Litecoin address: LhfSd3ZzJMrWawrFimQcTnCx8rYQ3XYiVG
My PPC address:      PPM4tkGmx9f4LMchhCqQAn6j843KDU3ELk

   I assume I will never see any of it again, but would like to offer 1/2 of any recovered funds as a reward to anyone that can help to find the criminal(s) responsible/return the funds.
