Police were advised late yesterday of an issue involving potential un-authorised transaction activity at the Christchurch based crypto-currency trading company Cryptopia.

A significant value of crypto-currency may be involved and Police are taking this very seriously.

We are currently talking to the company to gain a further understanding of what has occurred.

A dedicated investigation team is being established in Christchurch including specialist police staff with expertise in this area.

Police are also liaising with relevant partner agencies in New Zealand and overseas.

The investigation is still in its very early stages and police are unable to provide further information tonight

We expect to provide an update tomorrow.

Also, if you go to the actual cryptopia page, the fancy animated background is a nice touch. I bet they spent the last little remaining btc on commissioning it.

I remember when my bank was hacked and I irredeemably lost all my money. Oh wait that doesn't happen. Btfo cryptonerds
Reminds me of that time the bank shut down my account, froze all my money for an arbitrary amount of time until I fought them in court. (this didn't actually happen to me, but it does happen to people in my country).
