If you have an interest in the 152 bitcoins that were forfeited by Mr Woodberry, a notorious wire fraudster, you need to act fast. The U.S. Marshal Service is ready to sell them off and you have only 30 days to file a claim.

In this post, I’ll explain who Mr Woodberry is, how he was caught, how he laundered his money, and what you need to do to claim his bitcoins.

Who is Mr Woodberry?

Mr Woodberry, also known as Mark Kain, was a mastermind of a global wire fraud scheme that involved recruiting at least four money mules from Dubai, UAE. He used fake identities and documents to trick unsuspecting victims into sending him money.

He was arrested by law enforcement officers in Dubai in 2020 and extradited to the U.S., where he faced trial at the U.S District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

How Did The Fbi Seize His Bitcoins?

As part of his plea agreement, Mr Woodberry agreed to forfeit all proceeds of his wire fraud, including 152 bitcoins that were worth about $6.5 million at the time of his arrest.

The FBI seized his bitcoins from various wallets and exchanges that he used to launder his money. They also obtained a preliminary order of forfeiture from the court on July 7, 2023.

How Did Mr Woodberry Launder His Money?

According to the FBI, Mr Woodberry used various online platforms and aliases to launder his money. He allegedly used the name Mark Kain in emails to communicate with his victims and money mules. He also used **Bitcoin** and other cryptocurrencies to transfer and conceal his funds. He reportedly had multiple bank accounts in different countries, including the UAE, Nigeria, the UK, and the US. He also flaunted his lavish lifestyle on Instagram under the name Mr Woodberry, which he got from his high school days.

How Can You Claim His Bitcoins?

According to the document filed by the federal authorities, anyone who has an interest in the forfeited bitcoins must file a claim within 30 days of the notice. They must also provide valid documents to prove their ownership or interest in the property.

The notice states that the U.S. Marshal Service will take over the disposition of the bitcoins after the claim period expires. This means they will likely auction them off to the highest bidder, as they have done with other seized cryptocurrencies in the past.

If you think you have a valid claim to Mr Woodberry’s bitcoins, you should contact the Asset Forfeiture Unit of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois as soon as possible.

Don’t miss this opportunity to get your share of the seized bitcoins before they are gone for good.
