one more scammer behind bars!
Now the criminal charges may lead him to be condemned to five years in jail and to pay fine of $250,000 and the sentence will be announced in a later date.
This isn't the first time the Department of Justice from United States deal with the Bitclub Network scam, December of last year (3) men was charged with the same crimes.
Bitclub network was a huge scheme implanted and spreaded all over the world, involved Crypto mining with promises of double earning when more people was got invited to participate on the scheme, lot of investors lost money to the scam and Bitclub founders dumped the business and run away from it, leaving people with loses of billions of dollars!
this is the place where criminals go when steal money from innocent people, jail for them!
I am glad that at least 4 of them are now facing sentences and are in custody of the U.S authorities, I believe more scam business and founders will be prosecuted and will have to pay for their crimes in jail.
Better to have them arrested than seeing them escape with peoples funds.
Stay away from scammers, always be protected from fraudsters, take care.
