Israeli police closes investigations against crypto scammers

The cybercrime unit of Israeli police completed an investigation against crypto scammers that defrauded users of “tens of millions” of euros.

After several months of work, the Israeli police have concluded an investigation targeting an Israeli company that allegedly developed sting software that tricked crypto investors into losing money.

The criminals targeted European crypto investors using outbound calls and promised high investment returns. They gave them passwords and usernames to access a fake website with different cryptocurrency portfolios.

Serbian, Ukrainian, Georgian, German, Spanish, and Israeli nationals were among those targeted by scammers. The exact amount of money lured is unknown. However, local media Ynet suggests the amount could be “tens of millions” of euros.

The police suspect that the operation was run by some of Israel’s most critical crime families. Local police raided the operations offices and arrested six suspects.

Crypto scams development

Crypto scams have become a growing concern in recent years as the popularity and adoption of cryptocurrencies have increased. These scams involve fraud to deceive individuals and steal their digital assets or money. Scammers often exploit the lack of regulation and oversight in the crypto space and the general scarcity of awareness and understanding among potential victims.

One common type of crypto scam is investment fraud, where scammers promise high returns on investments in cryptocurrencies or related projects. They often use persuasive tactics and false information to lure unsuspecting individuals into investing their money. These scams can take the form of Ponzi schemes, where early investors are paid with funds from new investors, creating the illusion of profitability until the system collapses.

Another prevalent type of crypto scam is phishing, where scammers impersonate legitimate cryptocurrency exchanges or wallets to trick users into revealing their private keys or login credentials. Once scammers access this sensitive information, they can easily steal the victims’ funds.
