But even as he awaits sentencing, the $65 million question
remains: Was it really counterfeiting?
Say what you
will about Bernard von NotHaus, the man has led his federal probation
officers to some beautiful places. First, there was the waterfront
penthouse in Miami Beach. Then there was the penthouse at the Marco
Polo condominium in Honolulu. Today, he occupies a multimillion-dollar,
40-acre estate in Malibu owned by a longtime friend. Make no mistake,
though: NotHaus is broke.
the FBI raided the Evansville office of his alternative currency,
the Liberty Dollar, in 2007 – seizing his assets and arresting
him for counterfeiting – the 68-year-old has been living on Social
Security and the kindness of wealthy acquaintances.
