Insider trading and time travel. (question)


New Member
I guess i should start by saying i am new to the boards, but by no means new to time travel. it's actually kind of a hobby of mine, not time traveling...but learning about it.

anyway, i am a film student and i am contemplating making a documentry about time travel, and even evidence that there are time travelers among us.

now, a friend of mine told me a couple of months ago about a man in New York that got arrested(?) for insider trading on wall street, he later claimed to be from the future. my friend didn't know much about it, but he claimed to have read an article about it in a respected publication. he also seems to think the man claimed to know when AIDS would be cured and where bin laden is hiding. but he doesn't remember what article.

now i know it's not John Titor because this was only a few months ago and not in 2001.

so does anyone remember this guy? even if it's completely disproven and absurd, i would like to hear the story, or see the link.

thank you in advance for any help.
The article in questions was from the Weekly World News. Not exactly a "reputable" news source, unless you buy into stories about "Bat Boy", or your name happens to be "creedo".
I read it on Yahoo News, it may be more credible than you think. It may even be more credible than the 2 inch identicle belly dancers who did not have a shadow. If you can believe that. But seriously there is a link in one of these posts, I think it may have been mine that will take you to the Yahoo News version of the story. I hope that helps, I myself am working on a novel, that drug me to this site, I just have a few history details to work out and it will be all but writen. Once again good luck.
John, I found your old post and that was exactly the story my friend told me. i even sound it on yahoo news. thank you so much.

and good luck with your book. have you read the time travelers wife? it's not really about time travel so much, but it's still really interesting.

i am of course in the middle of research, next comes the daunting task of getting investors. but i really think i'm on to something.
yeah, i read found that while i was looking sigmuend.

but i thought i said in my first post that i didn't care if it was a hoax or not. i'm just looking for any stories that might have made it into a semi-mainstream news source.
