Is it possible to recover money from a crypto scam?
In my opinion, the answer is yes! I say this for a number of reasons.
The first reason is that – as a lawyer specialized in online scams – we have already recovered large amounts of money for customers who have suffered online scams such as in the case of an international scam that took place between Italy, Albania and the United Arab Emirates.
The second reason is that, thanks to the great work put in place by police and the relevant public prosecutor’s office, there have been cases in Italy of seizures amounting to hundreds of thousands of euros -that had been converted into bitcoins- which have been returned to the rightful claimants.
What were these cases of capital recovery?
In the first case, the person under investigation, had sold and purchased bitcoin through an internet portal.
Believing – albeit at the preliminary investigation stage – that there were prerequisites for the crimes of financial misuse, money laundering and wrongful use of payment instruments, the Police, on the order of the Public Prosecutor’s Office, executed a preventive seizure of as much as 206,442.32 euros on current accounts opened abroad.
In a second case, another suspect, had committed serious crimes and attempted to lose track of the money he had illicitly obtained by purchasing bitcoins.
Through specialized investigations carried out by the Police, always masterfully coordinated by the local Public Prosecutor’s Office, the preventive seizure of 222,956.00 euros was ordered.
As written in the provision, the Police have reconstructed the ‘specific transactions operated‘ by the suspect reporting the ‘alphanumeric strings‘ of the transactions carried out on the ‘cryptocurrency exchanger’.
The seized money was destined by bank transfer to foreign companies ‘subsequently in charge of changing the currency received (euro) into bitcoin‘.
Well, as evidenced by the aforementioned judicial authority measures, it is absolutely possible:
- track down the perpetrators of the scams;
- proceed to the preventive seizure of the money for subsequent;
- return the same to the rightful claimants.
How is it possible to recover money from a Crypto Scam?
First of all, you must definitely -as a first step- make an extremely detailed lawsuit complaint in order to put the Police in a position to make specific and targeted investigations for the identification of the perpetrators, as well as, clearly, for the recovery of the invested capital.
The complaint should be accompanied by all documents such as:
- chat messages;
- bank transfer slips;
- telephone numbers and e-mails;
- alphanumeric strings relating to cryptocurrency transactions.
As previously indicated, through the alphanumeric string it is possible to trace all the transactions carried out thanks to the ‘Blockchain’ technology, that is a public list of all the transactions carried out which cannot be modified in any way.
Furthermore, based on national and international legislation, all platforms that ensure the exchange from traditional currency (for example euro) to cryptocurrency (such as bitcoin) must first identify the person who opens a wallet (virtual wallet) and report all suspicious transactions: this is required in order to comply with international anti-money laundering legislation.
It is therefore clear that through the ‘blockchain’ and the help of exchange platforms it is possible to identify the money transferred as well as the identity of the person who actually opened the wallet where your money is.
What are the investigations that the police can do?
If the data in your possession is made available to the Judicial Authority correctly through a correctly written complaint report, they have the possibility of identifying those responsible and recovering the capital even abroad as you have had the opportunity to see from the judicial measures that I brought you back.
Currency exchange companies have legal offices dedicated to responding to requests made by lPolice: they are obliged to do so by law!
It is therefore clear that once the correct data has been provided to the Police, they have the possibility of having communications directly with the platforms where the funds are allocated or transited: this makes the recovery of the capital easier even if it is kept abroad. By now, for years, the so-called ‘banking secrecy’ no longer exists, and with cryptocurrency transactions there is no possibility of data obscuration by compliant bankers.
Furthermore, with reference to the possibility of identifying the perpetrators, I can tell you that generally all communications with brokers take place via chat or instant messaging systems (such as WhatsApp, Telegram) and this allows you to get from the operators (such as Facebook that is the owner of WhatsApp) all the access and location data of the person who scammed you.
Through the connection IP address or the access log files it is possible to understand where the fake broker is located.
It is obvious that this is not a simple thing but, the greater the details provided to the Judicial Authority, certainly the greater the chances of identifying the scammers and seizing the capital subject to fraud as happened in the cases examined in the provisions of the Judicial Authority that above I ventured to mention.
