Will teach him to secure his servers, site, etc.


I think the hardest lesson this young man may learn is how to breathe when he finds himself tied to a chair with a plastic bag over his head secured by duct tape around his neck. I only say this because the first question I asked myself when I read the story is "who would trust an 18 year old kid with over a million dollars?". The answer is either a group of people who are completely naïve, or a single entity like organized crime. He should pray that it is the former and not the latter in his situation.
