A woman faces legal action for allegedly mishandling $4.2 million worth of cryptocurrency

A 31-year-old woman is preparing for a court battle amid allegations she mishandled $4.2 million in cryptocurrency. Law enforcement authorities revealed plans to charge her with fraud and suspected involvement in money laundering activities.

The investigation arose from a complaint filed by a company alleging that an employee diverted $4.2 million of Tether’s USD-pegged stablecoin (USDT) to cryptocurrency accounts linked to the accused individual.

Alleged misappropriations and transactions

The investigation revealed that the funds were allegedly misappropriated between May and August 2022. During this period, the defendant allegedly transferred the funds into her digital currency wallets and used them for various transactions. Authorities seized items allegedly purchased with the embezzled funds, including white slippers, accessories such as a bag and sunglasses and a black car suspected to be a Mercedes, recognizing them as the proceeds of criminal activity.

Potential legal consequences

The woman is expected to face charges under the Corruption, Drug Trafficking and Other Serious Crimes Act (CDSA). If convicted, she faces imprisonment of up to 10 years and heavy fines, as required by law.

Consumer Alert on AI-Based Scams

In a separate development, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has issued a consumer advisory warning of the wave of scams that use artificial intelligence (AI) to trick individuals into fraudulent investment schemes in digital currency. The warning highlights the proliferation of schemes exploiting cryptocurrency arbitrage trading, where scammers assertively promise exceptionally high profits through AI-based algorithms.

The CFTC has highlighted misleading claims from scammers, who often promise significant returns facilitated by AI-generated algorithms. These schemes, which boast returns ranging from tens of thousands of percent to a supposedly perfect success rate of 100 percent, take advantage of the public’s interest in AI technology.

Annual Report on Digital Currency Scams

A recent annual report from web3 security firm Scam Sniffer highlights the growing threat of phishing scams in the cryptocurrency industry. According to the report, phishing scams led to the theft of approximately $300 million in cryptocurrencies in 2023 alone.

Additionally, the US Secret Service disclosed the seizure of approximately $500,000 in digital currency in connection with an investment scam in Southeast Asia.
