Eww. You actually believe something a random, anonymous user on the forum says and don't even stop to think for a second that they're using CryptoXChange in combination with dozens of stolen bank accounts to steal money and probably got caught doing so, and are now just hiding behind a cheap lawyer in hopes of getting some cash?

I'm gonna go type up my own letter from a random law firm saying that you stole money from me. Would you believe you did then?

Why would anyone having an outstanding 100K worth of legit money post such a letter to an internet forum ?

If you have that amount of money, I think the case would've been solved without posting it to this forum.

I sure as hell know if I had that amount of money to throw around, I wouldn't bother posting it on this forum to have a case resolved.

Why would they post a low resolution copy when they would have been sent a PDF or Word copy of the document by the lawyers?

Perhaps someone should contact that law firm and ensure that the document isn't forged?

Should be easy as there are at least three people there.  I notice the document doesn't have the kind of information I would have expected and appears very preliminary, but then maybe because I'm using a larger firm in Sydney.

A boutique law firm is certainly an odd choice.

Ken knows whether or not he received the phone calls referred to in the letter and I assume that he's smart enough to have rung back to confirm that the calls came from the purported caller.

It's certainly an odd piece of correspondence for a letter of demand, and if I'd ever typed a formal letter so sloppily I would have been fired on the spot.  And yes, there is information missing which I would have expected to see.

Unfortunately, a lawyer can't break privilege in order to satisfy the curiosity of internet strangers.  There are a number of reasons I suspect it's forged.  Ken, I'm in Sydney so if you wanted to authorise me to view the original documents then I'd be willing to do so (and sign the confidentiality agreement).  I suspect that ringing to make an appointment for that purpose might get a "wtf" response.

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

I've been away for a while.
This thread is probably not what is fueling the recent rally in BTC.

Crypto really gone.
This an excerpt from a letter from lawyers:

Code:
You are correct, we have had no response from the Exchange.

The letter which was sent to the Exchange's registered office has been returned to us marked 'not at this address' (the letter was also emailed).  When we have tried to send letters in the past to the other addresses that we have for the Exchange and its directors, these letters have all been returned to us unopened.   The apparent absence now of any physical address for the Exchange is a concerning sign.

We have undertaken a search of the telephone directory to see if we could find a contact number for the director of Exchange.  Neither Colin Armitt nor Ken Armitt is listed in the area around Orange, NSW.  In fact there is no "C Armitt" listed anywhere in NSW and when we called the only "K Armitt" in NSW it turned out to be a 'Kym', not Ken.

I would suggest you get better lawyers.  People that can't differentiate between a business registration and someone with multiple businesses across the web/Australia and are easy to find need sacking.

It took a few seconds for me to pull up Ken's home address, phone number and work history.

Indeed, these have never been secret.  For that matter, Colin's contact details are not secret either. 

I'd seriously suggest that you find a new lawyer.  Yours seems unable to put together a business letter to you, the client - I wouldn't entrust them with writing an important letter to someone else.  Their paralegals are apparently totally inept when it comes to research, too.
