A hacker from the United States stole bitcoins from naive users for four years. His name is Terry Monroe Duquette and he was arrested in 2022 on charges of fraud, identity theft and money laundering.

He created fake websites that looked real and lured victims with promises of lucrative Bitcoin deals. When users entered their usernames and passwords on these sites, he gained access to their Bitcoin wallets and transferred them to himself.

So the hacker stole more than 10 thousand bitcoins, which at the exchange rate at the time of the arrest was about 500 million dollars. He used anonymous services to mix bitcoins, transfer them to other cryptocurrencies and even buy gold bars with them.

However, he was identified by the digital traces that he tried so hard to hide. Duquette now faces up to 20 years in prison for his crimes. His case became one of the largest Bitcoin thefts in history.
