A new crypto scam originating in China and involving the loss of at least $1.1 billion worth of cryptocurrencies from more than 700,000 users is thought to be related to the previous Plus Token Ponzi scheme that also exited with some $2.9 billion.
More digital currency snags as two notorious Arizona Men that operated a $1,000,000 USD cryptocurrency Ponzi business are under arrest for promoting illegal activities. Tokens are gradually becoming a common practice in the sports sector globally, and since we have had bad players in this nascent field, this scam doesn’t come as a surprise to many.
American attorney Mark Scott, who used to work for one of the biggest digital currency Ponzi schemes, OneCoin, is now trying to get an exoneration just three months after his conviction by a U.S court of illicit operations, money laundering and scams.
Another Ponzi scheme, dubbed Bitcoin Wallet, left investors with nothing, according to the Ladysmith Gazette. The investment scheme was one of the most lucrative projects in South Africa that saw many potential people, investors and companies willingly put their money in it, with the hope of acquiring abnormal returns in the shortest time possible.
The long-awaited arrest of Konstantin Ignatov, one of the founders of OneCoin, by the American authorities is being discussed in Ticino, Italian-speaking canton of Switzerland. In the past few months, some investors in Ticino bought this Bulgarian crypto founded in 2014.
The Central Bank of the Russian Federation has revealed a fraudulent financial system called Cashberry. The project was aimed at inducing people to invest their money in the scam scheme, offering highly lucrative returns on fiat and crypto investments.
From July this year, things resembling Ponzi schemes, fraudulent schemes where earlier investors are paid with the money taken from new investors, giving the impression that the scheme is a viable investment, have flooded the charts among decentralised applications (dapps) operating on the global's second-biggest Blockchain, exceeding even the pace of famous CryptoKitties.
