This story is just wrong on so many levels, as the questions storm onto the alleyway adjacent to a quaint pub, like a technicolor sea of angry and despondent soccer hooligans after enduring a defeat to an arch-rival.
Does the bar stock enough whiskey and Guinness to the squelch the potentially hazardous tide of mutual discontent, or is the plot simply tarnished by an obscure Russian gang doing their best impression of an amateur track and field team in stumbling their way through the corridors of suburban London?
Mashable.com confirms that while a January gunpoint robbery of a Bitcoin investor was ultimately successful and no arrests have been made by authorities, isn’t the hacking route of cryptocurrency cyber wallets the lowest risk and trendiest method in attaining profitable criminal success? (Just ask the team or individual, who hacked the accounts of Japanese Bitcoin investors to the tone of nearly $530 million dollars Friday, and allegedly without having to break a sweat in moving from a sitting position in the comfort of their home or lair.)
Apparently, the group of armed robbers went through the trouble and risk of forcefully invading a home in Moulsford, and ordered the victim to log onto their cyber wallet and transfer an undisclosed amount of Bitcoins into another account. Fortunately, for the bad guys, the UK has very stringent gun laws. Wow gentlemen, just wow. Hello, calling all hackers… There is a much simpler way to liquidate an online financial account or multiple accounts (gasp).
