The one and only Guru
Jan 30, 2010
A man from Tennessee has been indicted for attempting to extort $1 million in bitcoin by claiming that he had undeclared tax records of the former presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. Michael Mancil Brown contacted the accounting firm used by Romney, PricewaterhouseCoopers, claiming that he had stolen computer documents containing up to twenty years worth of tax returns that Romney had refused to put into the public domain for the sake of his election campaign.

one of those idiots that must have thought he was safe because bitcoins are "anonymous"

it was a double blackmail because he said if anyone paid him the million to release the documents, he would

not sure why people would do that. I'd just wait. Romney wasn't going to pay obviously so if I wanted them out I'd wait and see if he released them.

Very possible he never had the information to begin with.
