So you only claim to have hacked this the last round, not the first two or three times? Hmm...

I think he's trying to say the opposite - that he was able to supply large amounts of coins before the Rackspace and MtGox incidents.

Even if someone had the proceeds of all three Bitcoinica-related thefts, they still wouldn't be able to supply "large amounts" "constantly" - the total was around BTC 100k, which means it would be exhausted after only 10 sales of BTC 10k.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

May I ask, why are you personally attacking Zhou? The community understands your point. None of your posts at this point are helping: this one just damaged your own reputation if anything (it was, in the end, supporting Zhou).

At this point, I'm inclined to believe that you have a personal or commercial reason to blame Zhou.

Needs a scapegoat, since a shit ton of money went missing and they can't figure out who it is.

Listen: I don't give a flying fuck WHO files the police report, just do it NOW.

I wanted to question the same. I have officially requested a contact method of AurumXchange so that I can hire an attorney to look into the situation, but they posted this without giving me any information. (Roberto asked me whether I wanted an address, I said yes.)

If the user does not provide the requested documentation within the aforementioned time period, the order will be voided and funds for the order in question returned as explained on paragraph 5.

AurumXchange didn't request any documentation from me and decided to withhold the funds. There's no mention anywhere in the TOS or AML that withholding of the funds will ever happen. Instead, they have said that if the funds are questionable, they will return them to the original sources.

The only contact info I have for Roberto is:

I too would like to know why they have broken their own user agreement with you to speculate on a public forum regarding your private account details.

you can not make this shit up

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.

They dont just return funds suspected to have come from illegal activity. Most likely they will be handed over to the relevent authorities. AML means "anti money laundering" which is what I suspect you are ow being investigated for. You wont find out about it till you will get arrested and all your wordly goods including houses you bought for your family are seized s suspected proceeds of such money laundering.

Im just surprised someone running a financial site such as bitcoinica is completely unaware of the fact if you transfer more than $10 000 at once its a suspicious activity.....which is why you should only do such things using bitcoin not fiat  Smiley

We have asked you, repeatedly, for your retained attorney's information, and received no reply from you. No further information will be released to you since there is an AML investigation going on as well.

Please provide that information on a ticket as requested.

Isn't disclosing that there is an ongoing AML investigation actually against the AML investigation rules?

It is under the AML regulations of most countries, but not all countries are fully compliant with all of the FATF recommendations (I don't think that there's any nation which is compliant with all of them).  Dominica's fully or largely compliant with only 7 out of the 49 FATF recommendations on which AML laws around the world are based.

Tipping off provisions do allow FSPs to ask customers about the source/destination of funds, which can sometimes clarify whether or not a suspicious activity/matter report needs to be made.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

+1

We want to know whether at least there is some movement - being public figures you can't afford that level of inactivity after we had so much success with fund recovery so far. if you cant provide this information legally at least provide some indirectly.

I openly boycott the Bitcoinica Consultancy team or Intersango: Donald Norman, Patrick Strateman and Amir Taaki

I'm sorry to rub it in, but there very likely will be no more reimbursement process. That's what it means when you get robbed. Noone is going to give you closure. If it was an inside job this will have much worse consequences for everyone involved. Like ghosts in bad movies people mourn their loss on here for months and years and there will be no closure. It'll be like in a Dostojewski novel or the film Matchpoint: whoever did it will potentially have to live with being constantly reminded of this mess forever. If it was an inside job, those responsible at bitcoinica will be haunted and cursed, even if it wasn't an inside job. They just run away from it. Really? Will you tell people in a few months or years that this was the best you could have done to make your customers good? You resign because people on a message board have hurt your pride for something you are responsible for? But they didn't give me any respect! I work only for people's respect and if I don't get that I'm gonna go and eat my icecream alone somewhere. Watch what happens now, you will have no icecream and you really hurt my feelings. WAKE THE FUCK UP you conceited bastards. The world doesn't give a shit about your feelings. This is a business and you need to grow the fuck up.

Anyway, dear ninjarobot, you have to close the case for yourself. Muchly like Intersango - they now only accept initial deposits of 100GBP from new customers, turning their exchange into an outright ponzi. I'm sure there is a <technical reason> for this little inconvenience: extremely low liquidity due to loss of trust following minor tiny bitcoinica hacks/heists, unprofessionalism, lack of accountability, but most of all, narcissistic personality disorders.

Don't expect them to get a scammer tag anytime soon on here either, scammer tags are reserved for Bulanula. And, the Intersango boys are organizing the Bitcoin conference in London, we can't give them a scammer tag! This shitstory has done more than just hurt a couple thousand bitcoin members financially. It may as well tear apart the entire bitcoin community. Meanwhile, you will find me over at the alternative crypotcurrencies section, in the Litecoin community. The way I see it, it holds great potential and there very well be a need for it. Enjoy your conference close to the banksters in one of the most policed towns on the planet.
