One of the administrators for the official Dogecoin Facebook page located at: https://www.facebook.com/OfficialDogecoin?fref=nf has made a stunning post that has left many in the community in absolute shock. The page which has just over 64 thousand likes has served as an aggregator and community for many in the Dogecoin community.
Kasper Rudstedt posted a notice to the page that he would be heading to jail to serve a sentence related to crimes regarding hacking of merchant systems. Kasper also admitted to having a gambling problem.
Many commenters have expressed kind words to Kasper for his bravery and for owning up to his crimes in the past.
We’ve embedded the post below and if it is removed also have included the post’s text.
You’ve all heard the recent scandal with what’s been called as #moogate. It shocked the Dogecoin community at large.
Today however, I want to make a confession about my past, and it’s not so far from Mr. Ryan, or Alex or whatever his name is, past.
My name is Kasper and I’m one of the content creators here on this page. I’ve been a Dogecoin-enthusiast since december 2013. I got the trust and blessing from Jackson (the Dogefather) to operate this page along with Oskar after the merging of the various unofficial Dogecoin pages on Facebook. I will understand if I’m no longer fit for the job after this post, I’ve had my fun.
So, to the point… What I havn’t disclosed, is my own criminal past.
Between the years 2008 and 2011, I was actively engaged in the darker side of the internet. I was a cyber-criminal using the common flaws in credit-cards and activly exploiting merchant-systems and collecting vast quantities of databases for illicit use. I also had a big gambling problem, which contributed to seek out more ways of getting funding for my bad habit even more.
In may of 2011, my home was raided by the Swedish police and i was incarsarated in isolation for over three months. Earlier this year, i got sentenced to over a year in prison and 1 million SEK (about $140,000) in fines. I’ve withdrawn my appeal and will begin to serve time sometime next week. I’ve never been in contact with the law otherwise and I never ever plan to become a subject of criminal justice ever again.
Stupidity and greed. I really regret it and now I have to pay for it.
Do not be a criminal. Make good for the world!
Also, sorry for my bad english.
– Kasper Rudstedt
