What about the guy that threw his HDD with 7600 coins and is now digging through dirt to find it?
I doubt that he will find it though. From what I've read he has no money to get people to find it for him either.

He could just offer a reward from the £4.2m in BTC on there. He doesn't need to pay upfront.

You're right.
I'd make a generous offer of $100k or more if it's found and wallet works.

Pure win.

Not so fast.  Fairly ancient wallets seem to load fine into the modern codebase.  Seems possible that an older wallet could be encrypted in anything past 0.4.  I've not tried it though since I think that encrypting wallets using bitcoin-qt is stupid in a lot of cases.  In fact, I've never even run anything but straight bitcoind.

OTOH, it seems equally or more likely that the whole $10M loss is a sham story.

any wallet could have been manually encrypted with PGP no?

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.
Censorship of e-gold was easy. Censorship of Bitcoin will be… entertaining.

I also operate a password recovery service. Indeed you don't need to risk any money - to discover and validate a password only requires empty Bitcoin addresses from the wallet.

If this is not a scam the person should be able to go back to the exchange where they bought their coins and get a screenshot of the transaction history. Of course you can fake that but it'd help provide some substance to the claim.

Lost your wallet password? Try Stillfire's Password Recovery Service.
