I did read the whole thread.  I've been following it post by post for the last few days.

I'm just pissed off that the bitcoins I put in bitcoin-central are going to take 90+ days to get back to me because the owners other business was badly designed.

see my issue now?

Yes, in the last hours sometimes http://bitcoin-central.net showed the "Instawallet" message. Now they have changed it to the correct message (for the services Paytunia  and Bitcoin-Central).

Are you sure you know where their offices are?

No.

Bad neighborhood. Better take some resilient people along.

Your account balances (EUR, USD, GBP and BTC) were not affected by the service interruption.

This is the latest update in bitcoin-central

It did say the same thing on bitcoin-central as it did on Instawallet web site.  At the time of posting what I said was correct. This has now been changed.

I'm a little less worried now

This is what I learned about France in school (with google translation.)  Typical American education.

  Il est un pays qui s'appelle la France
    où les femmes ne portent pas de pantalon
  Et les hommes se promener
    avec leur ding-dong traîner.

Translated back, it loses some of it's rhyme.  It came with a catchy little tune which is probably why I remembered it.  Maybe it was subtly planted by French infiltrators to provoke future tourism?

But is there any news on Bitcoin Central yet? You mentioned 48 hours, then another 48 hours and a 24 hour announcement. Seeing as there has been no such announcement yet, the second 48 hours is going to be crossed as well..

Please focus on communications a bit more. It's quite frustrating to see only so few updates, especially when instawallet is under such pressure.

I just got someone to answer on this number

Administrative Contact:
  W3BFLOWS SARL
  FRANCOIS Michel
  34 rue Charles Chefson
  Bois Colombes, 92270
  FR
  +33.672332684
  650cpyijxhkip452kqfs@l.o-w-o.info

His name wasn't Michel Francois. He said he worked on a project with a friend of a friend. He sounded like he knew David Francois (the number someone (Hous?)spoke to Davout  on and that Michel is his father?

He seemed to find the whole thing amusing that I had his number and knew about the hack in general. Seemed genuine but strange his number is listed.

 Huh

The whole thing with bitcoin-central and paytunia is taking too long.
They better bring them back online ASAP, they've got 40minutes to bring up bitcoin-central back online before the 48hour deadline is reached (again).

All the legal information about the company is here.
For a few euros you can also get the list of the shareholders.
The corporate headquarter is in Boulogne. It's in the suburbs of Paris, you can go there with the metro. The offices are probably at the same place but the datacenter (and davout) might be anywhere in or around Paris.


Thanks, bud. I feel better now knowing that IW has been found and the police are guarding it as exhibit A.


(As they say in the trade, this photo is unretouched.)

Sometimes, you just can't make this SHIT up.

That seems a bit strange if everything is locked down?

This must be instawallet moving it around surely?

Yes - I am not alarmed, they are probably just sweeping the smaller balances into a wallet so they can set up for making payments out to people within the next few days.

Ok, I have now seen something that i am worried about.

I have checked the address of the coins that i moved from Instawallet just before the site went offline and it is saying that the date of the transfer of the coins out was less than 12 hours after the coins were originally deposites more than 6 months ago. (I do not want to say when that was  as i may need to prive identity later.

Is this just the way instawallet worked and the transfer of the coins was to the hot wallet?

Huh
