They appropriated cryptocurrencies worth 7 million euros

The National Police Corps has uncovered an alleged cryptocurrency scam and detained four people in the cities of Alicante and Cuenca related to it. The defendants, aged 23 to 36, are implicated in the appropriation of 7 million euros in bitcoins

Through a non-existent society, detainees offered bitcoin holders the possibility of managing, investing and obtaining high returns which were paid to them on time.

For a time, the victims received the supposed interest generated that, in reality, came from the contributions that other victims made to acquire more cryptocurrencies

Once the victims of the deception transferred the cryptocurrencies, for a time they received the money corresponding to the alleged interest generated. These sums, however, came from cash given by other victims to acquire more cryptocurrencies. In this way they managed to generate an initial image of solvency, although some time later these fertilizers ceased to be produced, as explained by the National Police.
