With the SEC charging Trendon Shavers I've been doing a bit of reading on Pirate. There seems to be quite a bit of misinformation out there and a lot of it is just old speculation before details about Pirate's scheme came out. But there were a number of people who seemed surprised that Trendon Shavers was in fact Pirate, and that he was even charged by the SEC.

So the question I have is, has anybody on these forums actually met Trendon T. Shavers in person? There are a couple of pictures floating around that are supposedly him but it would be nice to have somebody confirm 100% that they have met him and believe he is in fact pirateat40.

Also feel free to speculate on the outcome of the court proceedings. My personal feeling is that Shavers will be convicted in some manner but no restitution will ever be paid.

Have ppl met him in person?

Yes, pls search for "Vegas, "Pirate", "picture", "meetup" or "Meeting" and some of his pass through operators and you will find him. It was around the last DEFCON taking place in 2012.

Yes that info is easily available and not hard to find. Maybe I should be more clear. I want to know if somebody on this forum met Shavers at DEFCON in 2012 or someplace else in the past year and can confirm he is who we all think he is. The reason I am interested in this is because in my readings I came across bits of information that suggests links to other possible bitcoin entities/scams that Pirate may be involved with (Some people even think he is involved with BFL currently...)

I will always find it very amazing that people invested money with someone that used the nickname 'Pirate', then wonder why the investment fails.

The undeniable proof would be to find someone that watched him log on to Bitcointalk and respond as Pirateat40. You should PM Goat and Gigavps to see if he logged in while in Vegas with them. I would suspect that one of the group of pass through members that went to Vegas might have asked for proof of identity. It could also be that one of this group was already contacted by the SEC during the investigation and struck a deal for their testimony on the identity of Shavers. Prosecutors are strange animals. They would rather let a killer go free than to allow their win success rate to drop. If they filed charges you can bet that they believe they have a winning case. If they don't think they can win after pressing charges they will offer a lesser plea and count that as a win.

I know, but I'm not saying, nor giving out clues. So, if you excuse me, I need to overclock some voltage.
