larry maggot says another theory has it that the fbi really did recover all the money, the money that. was recovered is a lot less than what was paid partially because they don't have it all but largely because cryptocurrency has gone way down in value, and it does fluctuate dramatically. one of the reasons it's gone down in price is because people who are using it to hide their transaction there now worried. that perhaps it's not as crypto and they thought it was. but this will continue unless companies protect themselves far better and refused to pay. it's just business. you don't pay. your data gets dumped and your backups destroyed. the fbi minced no words. there's no place beyond the reach of the fbi to conceal illicit funds that will prevent us from imposing risks and consequences upon the malicious cyber actors. tom vacar ktvu, fox two news. a new report alleges executives at fisher price repeatedly
