It sounds like BS to me. I personally think someone (Mark Karpeles) is started to crap their pants and is "finding" all this lost money.

You're probably right. Considering all the stories about how druglords are using BTC I'd imagine they (Mt Gox) will be having some VERY unsavory characters knocking on their doors.

Gah, my stupid eyes. It's still early and the calculator on my computer does not have commas. I kept staring at the screen when i did it and saying "how many 0's is that?" while squinting. Fixed.

They do have records of balances, but 200k BTC only covers about a third of what they absconded with.

yeah they seized some ungodly amount from the guy who was running silk road. So likely the gov't will wait until bitcoin hits some record high and sell them all off and then declare btc illegal and funding terror

Oh I never heard they actually got them. I thought they had found the wallets but couldnt access them. I was thinking more of a extra cache rather than what they seized though
