Federal Prosecutors Think North Korea Stole $81 Million From NY Federal Reserve

In February of 2016, hackers managed to gain access to the Bangladesh Central Bank. They proceeded to issue about three dozen requests to withdraw money from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York amounting to $951 million. By sheer luck, the Federal Reserve managed to stop the transaction after only $101 million had been sent ($20 million was later recovered). To date, the culprits of this heist haven’t been caught.

However, federal prosecutors think they have an idea who was responsible. They’re building a case that points the finger at unknown individuals in North Korea, as well as several Chinese middlemen who they think helped North Korea orchestrate the heist. Though the U.S. seems to think that the North Korean government was involved, there may not be any charges against any specific North Korean officials. If true, this would mark the first time that a nation state has tried to rob a central bank of another country outside of war.

On the other hand, some of the federal officials who are working on the case think that someone else is involved. They suspect that the hackers modified the code that was used by the Sony hackers in 2014, to make it look like North Korea committed the theft.

I don’t think either situation would be too surprising. That’s the problem with North Korea. That country has such a weird and awful reputation, that you can’t put anything past them.

    Did Hillary get half of it?

      Hillary probably helped out, as an act of charity.

    They think a lot of things that aren’t true. And the only reputation N Korea has is what they tell us. Again they think lots of things that aren’t true. N Korea is about as much of a threat to the US as the Canary Islands are. And before anybody attacks me with their ballistic missle nonsense, think of this. The US and S Korea have a huge military build up on there southern border. Would you not want modern weapons systems to fend of the aggression coming from us???? Heaven forbid a nation we don’t like wants to protect itself from (IMO) an inevitable conflict.

          CCL2-driven inflammation increases mammary gland stromal density and cancer susceptibility in a transgenic mouse model

          Transgenic mice were generated wherein CCL2 is driven by the mammary epithelial cell-specific mouse mammary tumour virus 206 (MMTV) promoter. Estrous cycles were tracked in adult transgenic and non-transgenic FVB mice, and mammary glands collected at the four different stages of the cycle. Dissected mammary glands were assessed for cyclical morphological changes, proliferation and apoptosis of epithelium, macrophage abundance and collagen deposition, and mRNA encoding matrix remodelling enzymes. Another cohort of control and transgenic mice received carcinogen 7,12-Dimethylbenz(a)anthracene (DMBA) and tumour development was monitored weekly. CCL2 protein was also quantified in paired samples of human breast tissue with high and low mammographic density.

        I hope you realize I was being sarcastic as all hell. As for the transgenic mice thing, that’s just bizarre

          North Korea is China’s domain.

          Accordingly, the Western/Israeli run governments can exercise unlimited ‘poetic license’ whenever their perpetual, state-run narrative needs a twist.

          NWO! NWO! NWO! San Hillary!

          • Joel W

            Um yea that’s pretty much what I was implying. You don’t need to ‘educate’ me on these things, if that’s what you think is needed to be done. I am well aware of the reality behind the control matrix. FYI, when you say western/Israeli, you can leave it at western and save yourself time. Israel is obviously the command center for it all. Frankly, I’m very confused with your comments. You missed my sarcasm, then proceed to fill me in on things that anybody with a functioning brain already know. Not trying to start an argument, but where are you going with all this, especially rehashing what I already said???????

    • SP_88

      Not that I don’t think that Kim Jong Un is a lunatic, but regardless, he is right not to trust our government. If he’s been paying attention to what we’ve done to the government of every other country, than it’s obvious to him that we are likely to try and kill him and replace him with a puppet government that does what we want.
      The only problem with that is there isn’t any valuable resources or strategic value to the country.

    How can you steal something that was created from nothing?

    It was obviously the Russians.

    It is just paper and ink, nothing more. Just print more paper. See how easy it is to make counterfeit currency? Just paper and ink.

      Or they could have asked for foreign aid.
      We have given more to North Korea, than just 100 million dollars.

    N. Korea rejected the world wide central banking system. Is it just coincidence that now they are the bad guys, per our central bank owned media anyway.

    the stupid people in government can’t blame Bush anymore. Why not the Russians? They are a hot fake news item today. Can’t blame Trump ? Some other white guy ?

  • Good for them.
    And how many trillions has the “Fed” stolen from the American people?
