well... a judge "order" from US is worth like 0.00000001 btc (better make it dodge) for the rest of the world...

(put a judge from US to decide about Crimeea then Smiley))))

Well unfortunately thats not entirely true unless by "rest of the world" you mean 3rd world countries who don't do business with the US. You are living in fantasy land if you think the US has no power overseas.

Hell they raided kim dotcoms house and he wasn't even breaking the law.

Now your comparing complex government affairs with a random guy running a highly illegal security scheme? Clearly logical

Japan is very US friendly. Extradition will work smoothly if it comes to that.


Yes... from Pearl Harbour Smiley))
Not sure how knowledgeable you are on geopolitics but Japan is a very close US ally these days.

Analyst suffered ‘inhuman’ extradition ordeal, says lawyer

Last December, Trent Martin, an Australian who had worked for the Royal Bank of Scotland as a research analyst, was arrested in Hong Kong on US insider-trading charges and agreed to be extradited to New York.

The process took three months – during which time Mr Martin, 34, was shackled in handcuffs, held in solitary confinement and placed in a psychiatric prison, according to a letter sent by his lawyer, Larry Krantz, to a US judge.

Mr Krantz has alleged his client was subjected to an “an inhuman ordeal”, and other lawyers say the case raises questions about the rights of extradited suspects at a time when US authorities are growing increasingly aggressive in hunting down alleged wrongdoers in other countries.

...Mr Martin’s case marked the first time in a decade that the US had sought the extradition of an insider trading suspect. This pursuit was all the more remarkable because Mr Martin was only accused of making $8,000 from the alleged scheme.


All of that.
Citizen of Australia, arrested in Japan, by US authorities.
For $8000 profit.

 Shocked

@jonsi

We're not discussing whether or not extradition to US should or shouldn't be done.

Point is US can and will do that in the case of MPEx http://www.foreign.senate.gov/treaties/110-11

"join US" you meant... no no... I don't like the totalitarian regime...

Again you're off-topic here.

Point is very simple. Extradition of MP to US will go smooth as butter. There's also a fresh precedent http://www.fbi.gov/newyork/press-releases/2013/three-members-of-international-cyber-fraud-ring-extradited-from-romania-to-the-united-states

Quote
Three Members of International Cyber Fraud Ring Extradited from Romania to the United States
U.S. Attorney’s Office May 02, 2013    

    Eastern District of New York (718) 254-7000

Romanian nationals Cristea Mircea, Ion Pieptea, and Nicolae Simion will make their first appearance before United States District Judge Edward R. Korman later today following their extradition to the United States from Romania. The defendants are charged with participating in a sophisticated multi-million-dollar cyber fraud scheme that targeted consumers on U.S.-based Internet marketplace websites such as eBay.com. Their extradition followed a coordinated international takedown in December 2012, during which law enforcement officials in Romania, the Czech Republic, the United Kingdom, and Canada, acting at the request of the United States, arrested six Romanian nationals, including Mircea, Pieptea and Simion. The Bucharest Appeals Court ordered the extraditions of Mircea, Pieptea, and Simion on February 2, 2013. The defendants were subsequently transported to the Eastern District of New York and arraigned on March 27, 2013.

Some cases to fill the time as MP waiting arrest

http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/2013/September/13-crm-987.html

Will they sent him with Yelm Couple 3 birds with 1 plane?

http://www.goskagit.com/news/state/romania-seeks-extradition-of-yelm-couple/article_6889006f-937d-5670-9240-5ca4589b25d3.


I also found that Romania likes to extradite people named Mircea

Quote
In addition to Cojocaru’s extradition, three other defendants – Cristea Mircea, Ion Pieptea, and Nicolae Simion – have been extradited to the United States from Romania, and one defendant, Emil Butoi, was extradited from the United Kingdom.  Earlier today, Mircea pleaded guilty to committing wire fraud.  Butoi pleaded guilty to committing passport fraud on November 5, 2013.  Defendant Nicolae Ghebosila is still engaged in extradition proceedings in Canada.  Seven defendants, including Romanian national Nicolae Popescu, are currently fugitives from justice.

And you guys accuse other people of being trolls.

SEC asks him some questions = he's going to be extradited. why not say they're going to execute him? there's just as much proof of that as extradition

Looks like the FBI do a LOT of work in Romania.

'TUESDAY, APRIL 06, 2010
70 Romanian Phishers & Fraudsters Arrested

On March 4th, FBI Director Robert Mueller was given a speech on Cybercrime to the RSA conference where he mentioned that:

"And we have worked with the Romanian National Police to arrest more than 100 Romanian nationals in the past 18 months. Four years ago, several American companies threatened to cut cyber ties with Romania because of the rampant hacking originating from that country. And yet today, Romania is one of our strongest partners."'

Marcel Popescu aka NotLambchop -

continuing your illegal commercial attacks on legitimate US businessmen and their companies will do you no favours. Infact quite the opposite. Enjoy your time at US hospitality.




Edit what giant pic? It's the FBI wanted poster. You should be careful about criticizing the FBI's choice of typeface.

Does this sound familiar?


'Romanian notoriety

In a recorded conversation, the FBI said Mr Popescu boasted that he was "beyond the reach" of US authorities.
Romania has gained increasing notoriety as a hub for cybercrime.'

If you are familiar with Mr Manson and his time in San Quentin you should have some sort of idea what's coming to you. If you can get your hands on a guitar do it - otherwise don't expect too many TV crew visits and, as always, there will be another parole hearing a few years down the line.

As I see the SEC asking for information about Eric Voorhees not about MPEx, so I think at this time EV is the one to worry not MP. You guys shouldn't let your feelings to mislead your situation awareness Smiley.

Where did you get that from?

The SEC have contacted Popescu and requested an interview with him (by phone) which he denied them. If you think that means they will not be interested in him you are crazy.

Didn't they also interview Pirate's victims. you guys are making huge jumps in this post. They are probably looking at him, but people are acting like they have announced an arrest warrent or something.

@Phildo:  OP of this thread, Herp, snapped after discovering that his buddy NeoDanny accidently all the bitcoin and he wasn't going to be the next Rothschild.  He has been banned from this forum.
The minerpart d00d invested in an elderly alcoholic from Missouri, with pretty much the same results.  Who woulda thunked?
Anyhow, they provide us the much-needed comic relief in these unpleasant times, every soul is useful.

err Yes but Popescu is the operator of an illegal Securities exchange/Ponzi scheme not a fraud victim. I know being interviewed does not imply guilt but you have to see why the interview is requested.
