Man has $16,500 worth of Bitcoin stolen from MtGox

 On April 23rd 2013, Wright’s Mt. Gox account was hacked by an IP address based in Holland and the money was transferred out. “Every time I log back into my account it is like returning to a murder scene, so sad.”

A Bitcoin account can be set up so it is completely anonymous which is a strong appeal to it’s users but it also makes theft hard to reconcile. Since April, Wright has been contacting the company based in Japan and has been told there was nothing they could do to return his funds and he would have to contact his local police.
