Oman Cypherpunk’s Friend Robbed Lost 3,000 BTC and Offers A Very Juicy Reward

Back on January 28, the cypherpunk Seccour wrote that his friend in Oman has been robbed by three men. The casualties include 3000 bitcoins, 6 million AED in cash and other valuable goods.

Although the goods that were stolen included some important documents and money, the user is concerned about a silver ring that has his initials and has sentimental value. Seccour’s friend is currently offering 250 BTC to a user that is able to provide information about the criminals and bring them to justice.

Additionally, if there is an individual that is able to bring all the funds to the respective owners, 25% of these goods will also be given as a reward.

The cypherpunk explained that this attack was his fault due to the fact that he did not pay attention to some unusual movements around him. There were individuals following him and some passwords were not working properly the days prior to the attack.

In order to help individuals know about the stealers, he provided clear information about them. One of the three suspects is 1.85 meters tall, white male with a tattoo on his hand. The second one is a tanned white male that is 1.75 meters high. The third suspect is 1.79 meters high, Asian-looking individual. All of them speak in English without any specific kind of accent.

Although he provided all the information he had about the thieves, he knows that it is very difficult to catch them and that the criminals are likely gone forever.

Bitcoin (BTC) users have been targeted multiple times by stealers and other criminals. As they might have several BTCs stored in their wallets, attackers tend to threaten them and ask for the funds to be sent to a specific wallet.

Other ways to attack Bitcoiners is by ransomware attacks. As we’ve written in the past at BitcoinExchangeGuide, some attackers were sending letters to wealthy neighbourhoods in Washington claiming to know some secrets from the family. The only way individuals could avoid these ‘secrets’ being unveiled was by sending a transaction to a specific BTC address.

It is always important to remember that the best way to store digital assets is using a hardware wallet. Several exchanges have also been hacked losing millions of dollars from individuals in the platform.
