More than $ 240 million of bitcoin received from users through the Plus Token fraud scheme has been transferred into four bitcoin transactions.


According to the Whale Alert Twitter account, a total of 22,923 bitcoins have been transferred in 4 transactions. Will Alert, who intercepts large bitcoin transactions, August 17, announced that these bitcoins have been transposed into four transactions with amounts of 6000, 5000, 7000 and 4923 bitcoins and are likely related to the Plus token scheme. .

Cointelegraph had earlier listed the biggest digital currency thefts in the list; Plus Token topped the Exit list with $ 2.9 billion fraud. Exit scam is a type of scam in which the purchased products are not shipped (delivered) but the order registration process continues. Plus Token claimed in its plan that holders of wallets would make between 8% and 16% of their funds by depositing $ 500 (in digital currency).




According to Ciphertrace, several Chinese people, including one co-founder of the project, were a North Korean national under the pseudonym Kim Jong-un and a Russian citizen named Leo in Plus Token. Not long ago, we saw the Chinese police entering the case, which eventually led to the arrest of some of the agents of the scheme.

Earlier, a US District Court ruling ordered the immediate seizure of $ 8 million in assets related to fraudulent entities and unregistered ICOs.

Recently, New York resident Ronald Middleton and two entities under his management have been charged by the US Securities and Exchange Commission with illegally earning $ 14.8 million through the ICO.
