Megaupload Founder Kim Schmitz Cars Seized by FBI

Kim Schmitz cars seized by FBI

After the authorities terminated MegaUpload yesterday, founder Kim Schmitz’s possessions were targeted, with his car collection being the first to be seized.

We don’t know what’s more opulent: the vehicles themselves, or their number plates, which, for example, read “GOD” (Rolls-Royce Phantom Drop Head Coupe), “MAFIA” (Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG), “STONED” (Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG), “GOOD” & “EVIL” (Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG). We have to mention that the photos came to us via Elliott Kember.

We have to tell you that about 30 cars and bike were seized after the authorities intercepted a series of mails that allegedly reveal how Kim offered cash to uploaders in exchange for copywrited material. The vehicles were taken away from his mansion in New Zealand.

The FBI suspended a total of 64 bank accounts and multiple PayPal accounts, which hold a total of $175 million, being held in multiple countries.
