You might remember the shockingly poor results of the MPCD series, and if you know me you knew all along heads are going to roll. Well...
The people named are the principals of srgexpert, Patrick Harnett's employer. The contents of that email :
I am writing to you to let you know that one of your people, namely Patrick Harnett, was recently involved in online fraud. To substantiate this you could read this thread
(his handle is tagged as a scammer on that forum) or simply google "scammer tag" - he comes up in 1st position.
The substance of the fraud is detailed in these two threads :
The first purports to offer the general public investments in a "fund", which was used covertly to purchase unsecured "debt" in a failed Ponzi scheme (currently investigated by the SEC - http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/technology/willardfoxton2/100007836/bitcoin-pirate-scandal-sec-steps-in-amid-allegations-that-the-whole-thing-was-a-ponzi-scheme/ ).
The second was a longer running "deposit" offer where Patrick promised fixed returns. In both cases he ran with the deposits, in total value of about 100`000 to 200`000 USD.
Please let me know how you are pursuing the matter.
All the best,
I am curious as to the reply, especially given that
