$5K bounty on the man who claims he owns half of Facebook because of $1K he lent to Mark Zuckerberg

Yesterday a US Court ordered Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg to turn over all the documents and electronic communications to Paul Ceglia now it has been reported that U.S Marshals put up wanted notice on 10th March offering a $5,000 reward for information about his whereabouts.

Paul Ceglia claims that he owns 50 percent of Facebook in lieu of $1,000 in startup money in exchange for 50 percent of the future company. The federal prosecutors allege that Ceglia had altered an unrelated software development contract signed between him and Zuckerberg in 2003 and forged it in such a way that it was made to appear, Zuckerberg promised him 50 percent share in Facebook.
