It's laughable that people want to sue MNW for basically being a jerk.  Cheesy

We can sue people for being jerks now? Sweet!

I was merely pointing out that since the entire 'investment' and bet with matthew were made using bitcoin and the US government does not regulate bitcoin, the cops aren't going to do a damn thing about it. 

This has been pointed out many many times before, but you must have missed it:
Are bricks considered money? Does government regulate bricks? If someone happened to steal $5,000,000 worth of bricks, do you think the government would just laugh it off, because it's not money and is not regulated, and will ignore the theft?
Do you think that for anything to be considered legal theft, the item stolen must have government regulations?

And if I 'invest' a million dollars worth of manure or bricks or another analog of your choice into a high risk scheme not knowing how the interest is paid or where the extra manure comes from, do you think the government will do ANYTHING when the shit hits the fan and the person on the receiving end of the deposit goes dark?  The point was this: If someone actually stole money, you could call the cops.  They would do an investigation, and you may or may not get your money back.  If you invest the same money into a legitimate company and they go belly up, you're fucked.  You can call the cops, but they aren't going to be able to get your money back.  If you signed a contract stating that you are knowingly investing in a high risk scheme and that you acknowledge the risk, you're double fucked.  If you hand that same money to a guy on the street who tells you that he will come right back with your original money plus 7 percent a week, but he can't tell you where the 7 percent is coming from or prove to you who he is or where he is located or what business he is in or any number of other questions a prudent investor should ask, then calling the cops when he doesn't come back is going to be, well, good luck with that.  Now throw into the mix a cryptocurrency that is pseudo-anonymous, unregulated, and not legal tender, and your good luck just flew out the window.  Once again, "waaahhh, the internet guy stole my WoW gold!"

You think Ponzi schemes using Liberty Reserve (non-legal tender Costa Rican "internet money") are not investigated? That's patently false.

That said, you're right no one is likely to get anything back (in large part because the nature of a Ponzi scheme means it was ludicrously undercapitalized).

It's coming.  Stop pestering people about it.  As we know, pestering causes delays.

Sorry, It's just that I promised my kid I'd take him to Chuckie Cheese once we got the money, he keeps going on and on about it and asking me when we are going.. *sighs*..

Repaying what exactly? He never actually took anything (other than advantage of other people who trusted him)
