I heard the story of a boy who lost 5000 BTC 3 years ago, losing its USB key.
That's real?

Poor guy, could be a milionaire!

Buried somewhere under four feet of mud and rubbish, in the Docksway landfill site near Newport, Wales, in a space about the size of a football pitch is a computer hard drive worth more than £4m. It belonged to James Howells, who threw it out when he was clearing up his desk in mid-summer and discovered the part, rescued from a defunct Dell laptop. He found it in a drawer and put it in a bin. And then last Friday he realised that it held a digital wallet with 7,500 Bitcoins created for almost nothing in 2009 - and then worth about the same.

This guy? Has he offered any proof he even had the coins cos I don't see any.

There's a pot of gold there for someone … I'm even thinking of registering www.returnmybitcoin.com. It's available," he said. He has also set up a Bitcoin wallet for donations aimed at recovering the hard drive.

Probably just begging for coins.

Well I don't know, but at the moment he's just some guy who claims to have lost millions. What's to stop any attention whore going to the media and telling them the same story. I would think generally The Guardian require some sort of proof of something before they publish unfounded shit.
