Mr. Schmitz’s freedom, however, comes at a price: the man who made his fortune online is now banned from using the internet and is prohibited from using his personal helicopter. In addition, he is not allowed to travel further than 80 kilometers from his leased mansion in Auckland’s Coatesville suburb.
I don't think he is allowed to go anywhere :(

Money in large amounts allows you to do pretty much whatever you want for a price though lol

No, but I am pretty sure a cab driver wouldn't be allowed anywhere near his property without being arrested.
