I am pretty sure one of the more seasoned SA members is preparing a full report with citations as evidence to the FBI. I remember reading about it last night, I will try to located the thread post.
It should be noted that SA has assisted law enforcement all over the country on countless prior occasions, regarding fraud and crime.
You don't have to convince me, that somethingaweful forums is FULL of law enforcement officers, most of whom work for the Banksters and hate bitcoin.
But I think you completely missed the point of this post. If Bruce never made the initial complaint like he claimed he did
, then he's the dead ringer for the elusive Tom Williams, given this newly uncovered info.
Do you have some place you can link to where he made that claim? I am very curious because in the Bitcoin Show episode 33 where he talks about My Bitcoin he very clearly states he did not
contact the FBI but that it was the FBI that contacted him. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FZldY-ZBBE
and back a few minutes at about 26:40+ he says the FBI "they're saying.. they're asking me to ask you if you've been affected by this...." to contact them.
p.s Here is the bitcoin addy Bruce listed to donate to Onlyonetv 14LhFtZu3aYYxpcKco3i6nRTW3ersuEqtq no clue if its one he used any place else.
p.s.s He states also that they only paid .60c each for the 25k bitcoin to stash, to umm, not quite stashing several hundred thousand there as I saw some people had suggested.
Now, in my own very personal opinion and after spending way too many hours looking into Bruce and taking into account what little info there is floating around on Tom Williams/Mybitcoin I have a very hard time making the leap to Bruce having any connection any further than what has been stated by him. Saying that is not intented to rule him out but I am fairly confident that if you have any desire to get to the bottom of Mybitcoin it will be better served through getting a court order first in Nevis to get info from Morning Star Holdings on Mybitcoin LLC and not by trying to find a connection between tom williams and Bruce because it does not appear to be there.
Though I have to admit seeing all the 'william(s)' references in the forclosure thing, positive poster Tod Williams, some names listed as plantiffs, 4 of them with the last name william and a very favorite spot to have icecream in a childhood since past, being named Tom's. The family of which has a maiden name of William shared among several is very very spooky to say the least. It is just as likely that the Mybitcoin perp found this info and there after made the decision to use 'Tom Williams' on his filings in Nevis... All creepy speculation without a lot more detective work than I can do in my 'spare' time, thats for sure.
Full Disclosure; I think SA smells like cheese bisctuis and has become full of newfags since I left their graces some 5-6 years ago...
