I am surprised the OP has escalated to "I talked to a lawyer and get can get the laptop but it is going to cost $5,000 in court fees which I don't have.  I would be willing to share a split of the coins on the laptop if someone can lend me the lawyer money."

Honestly kinda already expected it.

You couldn't buy 30,000 BTC for a couple of hundred bucks two years ago.  Not buying the story.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Seconded. I was surprised when the first post ended with "how do I use bitcoins" instead of some request for financial help.

That sounds like my friend's story. He lives in Poland where all of the exchanges are being shut down. The government is trying to find all Bitcoin users and round them up for prison sentences. He was mining early on so he has over 100,000 bitcoins. He says the police will be there soon and he needs money to get out of the country quick.

He is willing to accept a dollar per bitcoin if someone can just wire him the money so he can get out. He is desperate.

He even says he will pay half back once he gets out of the country. He just needs your bank account information and your social security number.

Please help this desperate soul.

Hi all,

I am new to this bitcoin thing so maybe I make some mistakes, please bear with me.

I have a friend who just contacted me and told me about this new thing called bitcoins. His situation is that he is in prison serving a sentence for I think 8 years, and he needs me to get his bitcoins.

He said two years ago he wanted to buy drugs on the internet so he used a couple hundred bucks to buy some bitcoins, he said he thinks there are around 30,000 of them but he is not totally sure.

But he never got round to using them and they are still sitting in his computer.

However when my friend was arrested last year the police confiscated his computer. I just asked the police for his computer, they told me because his computer was connected to his drug dealing charges it was confiscated, and it will be sold at public auction later.

My question is should I hire a lawyer to ask for his computer, and even if I got it how on earth do I get these bitcoin thingy back??

For three million dollars it's time to develop an elaborate scheme and steal it right out of the police station. Alternatively go and get a lawyer to file petitions to return the possessions for some or other reason.

But if there are really over three million dollars, then just  bribe your way to get it. seek out a vulnerable cop, and go withdraw 100,000 or so, whatever it take to bribe the guy to break into evidence and get the laptop. Warning, you could go to prison yourself for doing this.

Moral of the story: back up your bitcoin account to a microsd card and bury it somewhere no one will find it (except you, hopefully..). or hide the microsd card anywhere where no one will find it. like in a wall or something. better yet, put a gps on it so that when the time comes you can track it down. make several copies and store them in various places all around the world.
