    Last October, a federal judge approved a restraining order for the recovery of more than $ 600,000 worth of photographs. Bitcoin After Central Investigators claimed that part of the $ 11.6 million stolen from the client’s account of the popular crypto exchange coinbase was from the Hobby Global Wallet, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges. The scam, which took place last April after a Coinbase customer bought 200 bitcoins, sent a warning message to the buyer to close his account, although it appears to have come from the Coinbase site, which has been reported as a fraudulent notification. Filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles. Case documents show that this notice was the first step in a scam in which 206 bitcoins were stolen within 10 minutes from a user’s account. Despite the confidentiality of data in the cryptocurrency world, it is believed that investigations have not revealed how the fraudster came to know about the transaction that took place in the customer’s Coinbase account. The Coinbase customer, who is only referred to as GR in court...
    ONE in 10 Americans aren't taking advantage of this simple way to get free cash offered by employers through a 401(k) retirement account match. In fact, 17% of workers with access to employer-sponsored retirement plans aren't contributing, according to a survey by personal finance site MagnifyMoney. 1A survey finds 17% of American workers aren't contributing to employer retirement plansCredit: Getty Moreover, those who do, 12%, or 17.5million Americans fail to fully take advantage of their employer’s match. The most common employer-sponsored plans are Roth 401ks or traditional 401ks. Under a traditional 401k, employee contributions reduce their income taxes for the year they are made, but they'll pay tax when they withdraw cash. Under a Roth account, taxes are paid upfront. But the biggest benefit of a 401k is the employer's match, and some offer up to 5% of each paycheck. In other words - you are essentially getting free money from your employer.

House Democrats unveiled a tax package on Monday that would force distributions from one's nest egg if the value of individual retirement accounts, 401(k) plans and other retirement stashes exceed $10 million. Thiel, a PayPal co-founder, owns a Roth IRA that was worth $5 billion in 2019, according to a ProPublica report published in June, based on tax-return data. The IRA was worth less than $2,000 two decades earlier. The House legislation would require Thiel to withdraw all but $20 million, nearly emptying the account, according to tax experts.VIDEO2:4802:48House passes tax plan to pay for $3.5 trillion spending packageSquawk BoxRoth IRAs are a type of after-tax account.

Combined, the committee and campaign account had nearly $2.5 million on hand as of Aug. 31.charliecristfl/Facebook Ungodly. That’s how a fundraising email Sunday from Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist described the amounts of money being raised by Republicans. And as state candidates and political committees finished filing August finance reports Friday night, the cash chasm between Republicans and Democrats grew wider. Exhibit A: Gov. Ron DeSantis’ political committee raised nearly $5.52 million in August and had about $53 million on hand as of the end of the month. The committee, Friends of Ron DeSantis, raised almost $46 million during the first eight months of the year. While the committee will play a key role in DeSantis’ 2022 re-election bid, the money has rolled in before the incumbent has even opened a formal campaign account. That account, when opened, will provide another avenue to raise money. The DeSantis committee’s largest contributions in August were $500,000 from...

"Mega retirement accounts" are among roughly two dozen tax categories congressional Democrats are eyeing to help raise money for a $3.5 trillion spending measure, according to a discussion list obtained by CNBC.

    BOSTON (CBS) — The feud between Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen continues. Garnett is doing everything he can to subtract Allen from his best Celtics memories. Which is kind of hard, considering Allen was a major part of Boston’s 2008 title team, but KG is cutting Allen out of the mix any chance he can get. That includes on social media. Garnett shared a photo of himself, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo to his Instagram story over the weekend. The picture was from the 2011 All-Star Game, and it was missing a Boston representative: Allen.

Garnett’s bad blood with Allen stems from the Hall of Famer’s decision to leave the Celtics in 2012 to sign with the rival Miami Heat. The Celtics had been phasing Allen out for a few years when he made his move, and only offered him...
