Carl Force, the former DEA agent who was part of the Silk Road task force was sentenced for more than 6 years of prison for extorting payments in Bitcoins from Silk Road founder, Ross Ulbricht. According to law enforcement authorities, Carl Force has received around $50.000 in BTC from Ulbricht. He posed as a dark net market vendor called “Nob” and convinced the Silk Road founder that he had information regarding the investigation of the Silk Road investigation. However, Force, instead of reporting the Bitcoins he received from Ulbricht to the Drug Enforcement Administration, he transferred the amount to his personal account.
