Felt this should go here.

I just read this over at Kotaku and I thought I'd share:

Holy ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---
Well, I owe PBJ $5.  PM me your address James and I'll send it over.   :cheers:

I'm not sure what I do now that I don't have to try logging into the system to check on his status.  It's been a long time of logging in and posting that it's been continued out even further....

Come back when you can Dave.  We miss ya buddy.  Enjoy your time in the pokey.  And getting the pokey.

He last logged in Dec 18th, when we thought the sentencing would be.
I'm curious if he logged in because he was tempted to post in this thread.

It doesn't mean that he doesn't visit us without being logged in.

His twitter:

You get sentencing appeals even when you plead guilty?  Why tf plead guilty unless it's part of a deal in the first place.  I need to find out who his atty. is so I never ever mistakenly use them.  Perhaps some mandatory minimum or 3 strikes or something in play. 

Sadly I'm a bit surprised that people are looking at time for fairly rinky dink fraud of this level.  Hopefully its not taking up room needed for some murderer.

Shame I missed him at CES, but I'm sure he will be out in less time with good behaviour.

I guess we should all take a lesson from this.

Maybe he will be sent to the Warm Springs Correctional Centre, so I can go visit.  ;D

And already kicked to the real account so no backsies.  You just subsidized NetFlix for all my friends and extended family this month.   ;D

I know you're attempting to be funny, but you were given a simple challenge that you failed.  Nobody's perfect.

Finally! I was starting to wonder if it would ever actually happen. At least now there will be an official record of him being a felon to warn people or companies who might do business with him in the future.

That is the problem.  When he is inside he will be learning all the tricks on how not to get nabbed. 

Getting charged for fraud in this day in age, is like handing out speeding tickets at the Indy 500.

Oops, replied to the other thread before seeing this one...

This guy added me on LinkedIn a few months back. Really had no idea he had this kind of background. People in coin-op sure can be shady.

Looks like they're going to let him run around until March 27th, then he has to self-surrender.

That's the American way nowadays..people like this get years in jail..while the guy on his 5th DWI gets a fine..  Hell you could kill someone while intoxicated in your car and never serve time.

Didn't feel like doing any real work for the last hour of the day, so I tried to dig up any new info on this.

Seems he avoided surrendering on March 27th by playing games.

That couldn't have bought too much time, but I can't find anything more recent.

He's still active on Twitter, so he either got his surrender delayed or they sent him to Club Fed.

Maybe I shouldn't have spent that $5....

His appeal was recently denied.  2 years in prison, 3 years of supervised release, $5,000 fine.

I will rest easy with your $5.

Filed order (M. MARGARET MCKEOWN, MARY H. MURGUIA and MICHELLE T. FRIEDLAND) Appellant’s request to omit footnote one is GRANTED (Doc. 49). The memorandum disposition filed on March 25, 2015 (Doc. 48) is withdrawn. The Clerk shall file the new memorandum disposition concurrently with this order. Appellee’s unopposed motion to vacate the order granting bail pending appeal is GRANTED (Doc 50). This matter is referred to the district court for setting an appropriate self-surrender date. Appellant’s unopposed motion for an extension of time to file a Petition for Rehearing and/or Petition for Rehearing En Banc is DENIED AS MOOT (Doc. 51).

Funny story on this:
  One of the people convicted on this whole deal was the owner of Automated Services here in CT.
I have a comercial customer that gets parts from them.

The other day my customer call the owner Mike (who had already done his jail time for this matter) to try and get Global VR parts and Mike told him Global VR is no longer in business.

Of course as it turns out, they are very much in business but they won't do any dealings with the guy who tried to rip them off.

He didn't fake his loan, he gave out in inaccurate information, so a mere technicality.  I did plead guilty and he is having a nice time there.  Maybe he will make up a game about the experience.

So, he has a blog from prison on a website that helps white collar criminals transition ......

He's in Taft Federal Correctional Institution
(the minimum security satellite "camp" part that doesn't have any fences)

Dude tried to fake his way into a loan. 

I wouldn't even say that.  He lost his job just before closing and went through with closing. (which involved signing papers saying that the loan app info was accurate)

Where's he supposed to go?  A super max?

Even school playgrounds have fences.
