Over 127,000 Bitcoins have been stolen!

Quote

Kinde Durkee, who heads Durkee & Associates in Burbank, Calif., was arrested Friday on suspicion of mail fraud by the FBI. Durkee has served as a bookkeeper for scores of candidates — her company website says five presidential campaigns. Democrats were scouring records to determine if they might have been victimized.

When stolen they were in the form of dollars...


This is a huge hit for the Federal Reserve Note as a currency...this should send the dollar spiraling downward until such loopholes can be fixed.

Please don't call me crazy, but I think I found the connection between KD and Bitcoin.

AND

Quote
It was emphasized that this fund was maintained for emergency scenarios, not because of any suspicion of wrongdoing on the part of Durkee. In an elaborate ‘shell game,’ Durkee used clients’ funds to pay for medical bills, credit card expenses and trips to CostCo where she ran a prostitute ring.

Because any time someone steals Bitcoins or a scam is done using Bitcoins, it is big news.

Yet when it is dollars the article focuses on the crime...not on the currency.

I'm glad this criminal was brought to justice, like one day the Mt.Gox and MyBitcoin thieves will be.

Except MtGox didn't steal anything, and even compensated some people for their losses.

No need for foul language, but I hope the police finish their investigation soon and manage to recover the missing bitcoins.

At least when someone steals dollars there is sometimes a penalty for doing so for the person who took them.
In the bitcoin world someone steals bitcoins and nothing happens to the person who took them. Unless of course
whining on this forum and much gnashing of teeth counts.
