Thai police suspect suspected of $ 24 million Bitcoin scams


Thai police arrested the 27-year-old actor Jiratpisit "Boom" Jaravijit in an alleged 24 billion cryptocurrency scam, Bangkok Post reported on 9 August.

Jiratpisit is reportedly one of the seven suspects in the alleged crime, including her older brother and sister. On July 26, the criminal court issued a warrant for his arrest following a complaint by a Finnish man that he had fraudulently attracted foreigners by investing 797 million baht (almost 24 million dollars) of cryptocurrencies. Jiratpisit was arrested on charges of money laundering activities, which he denies.

Alleged cybercriminals promised to buy shares in companies that invested in the cryptocurrency Dragon Coin. According to the Bangkok Post, investors did not receive any dividends from their presumed investment or from an invitation to a shareholders' meeting. The crime suppression division declares that the criminals withdrew BTC from their electronic wallets and then converted into baht.

Earlier this week, South Korean police broke into the Shinil Group office, whose alleged crypt had promised investors the loot of the Russian warship Dmitrii Donskoi, which sank 113 years ago . To encourage investors to purchase the company's cryptocurrency, Shinil promised to repay them with the ship's gold. Reportedly, the currency has attracted 60 billion won ($ 53.7 million) in investments by about 100,000 investors since its launch this year. However, there is no clear evidence that the ship contained anything of value.
