MASSACHUSETTS TEACHER TO FACE CHARGES FOR ILLEGAL CRYPTO MINING OPERATION IN SCHOOL
Crypto mining. People seem to be doing it everywhere, despite the fact that the market for crypto currency is only ever more volatile. Depending on where you live, there are serious restrictions on where you can legally do it, if at all. But people are still doing it, seemingly everywhere. Or so I thought! Then I heard about this idiot. A Massachusetts teacher was crypto mining in his school! Well, in a crawl space in his school, to be precise. And this Einstein is now facing charges for the privilege. And how he was caught was, well, essentially obvious.
TOWN BUILDING INSPECTOR INSTANTLY KNEW SUSPICIOUS EQUIPMENT WAS FOR CRUPTO MINING
39-year-old Nadeam Nahas used to teach at Cohasset High School until his illegal operation was discovered. And his discovery was something that Nahas really should have seen coming. A town facilities inspector came to the school and quickly became suspicious as soon as he entered one room in particular. It seems that a building inspector is well-versed in identifying an obvious crypto mining operation when he sees one. It seems that when he saw a lot of computers, electrical wires and quite a bit of temporary duct work that he instantly knew what he was seeing.
IT TOOK 3 MONTHS OF FORENSIC EXAMINATION TO IDENTIFY CRYPTO MINING TEACHER, WHO IS NOW MISSING
Shortly after the inspector entered the room and saw what was there, the town’s IT director called the Cohasset Police to come “investigate a report of a possible Crypto Currency mining operation that was discovered in a remote crawl space under the school.” But that’s not all! The police then requested the help of the U.S. Coast Guard Investigative Service and the Department of Homeland Security to investigate the crawl space under the school. They then removed all of the equipment and spent 3 months doing a forensic examination that led to their identifying Nahas as a person of interest.
Nahas then resigned in early 2022 after he was identified as the crypto mining culprit. He was scheduled to appear in Quincy District Court for his arraignment last week, but he never showed. Authorities might want to search a lot more crawl spaces.
