“Fake Satoshi” Dorian Nakamoto is ... - Bitcoin News

Crooked Lawyer used Dorian Nakamoto's unwanted publicity from Newsweek article for fraud.

On October, 2014 a Website called newsweeklied.com was created, supposedly to raise money for an attempt to sue Newsweek over its article on Dorian Nakamoto. http://money.cnn.com/2014/10/14/technology/nakamoto-newsweek-bitcoin/
The Website was a scam, they never had any intention to represent Dorian.
Here is what caused my suspicion.
When you now visit the website you get a message "Website Expired This account has expired. If you are the site owner, click below to login. SQUARESPACE"
The website's Whois information shows the website was registered on October 03, 2014.
Internet Archive's Wayback Machine archived copy of the website newsweeklied.com (https://web.archive.org/web/20141014012228/http://www.newsweeklied.com/home) leads to this bitcoin wallet address for donations 1LK3uHXhXPzR6M7AfAMQk4vBgTtQLw2kGC
If you look up the bitcoin address it shows that the wallet received confirmed payment's from Oct 12 to Oct 24. https://blockchain.info/address/1LK3uHXhXPzR6M7AfAMQk4vBgTtQLw2kGC?offset=50&filter=0
I don't think it's a coincidence that a SQUARESPACE free trial expires after 14 days and all payments sent to the wallet is within that 14 day period. I believe it was canceled after 14 days or they only paid for a one month subscription because it was a scam.
After further doing a little research I now see that my suspicion was warranted. The archived website has the name and address of his "lawyer" c/o Kirschner & Associates 1100 Echo Park Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90026-4213
One simple Google search and Bingo, he's a crooked ambulance chasing "Lawyer". http://www.yelp.com/biz/law-office-of-ethan-d-kirschner-los-angeles
Even Andreas M Antonopoulos (who set up the bitcoin wallet for Dorian) was suspicious of the Lawyers intentions. I wonder though why he didn't inform Dorian. https://twitter.com/DanielJonss/status/521786895156908033 https://twitter.com/aantonop/status/521854456829186048
So to the 86 folks out there who kindly donated 2.09 BTC, just letting you know you were scammed. https://blockchain.info/address/1LK3uHXhXPzR6M7AfAMQk4vBgTtQLw2kGC?offset=50&filter=0
