Cryptocurency Worth $1 Million Stolen From Kyiv And Parts Of The Fund Have Been Found On Binance

  • The representatives from Ukraine’s cybercrime department got in touch with Binance and asked to block some accounts for the duration of this investigation.
  • Telegram channel Goldfoundinshit TM mentioned the theft and referred to its sources, who suggested that the police have already located the suspect.
  • The trader, Alexander, called the probable reason behind the blocking is the receipt of USDT in his account, that he received from his friend, last December.

Last December, an unknown person or group managed to steal over a million dollars’ worth of cryptocurrency in Kyiv. Reports suggest that these funds distributed to various exchangers and exchanges for withdrawal to fiat. Police are investigating this case and have blocked some user accounts on the Binance cryptocurrency exchange.

Previously, the Telegram channel Goldfoundinshit TM mentioned the theft and referred to its sources, who suggested that the police have already located the suspect.

In this investigation, the representatives from Ukraine’s cybercrime department got in touch with Binance and asked to block some accounts for the duration of this investigation.

ForkLog mentioned one such case in early January when Binance blocked the account of trader Alexander who possessed a large sum in the account. They barred the user from accessing the account and withdrawing the funds.

The support service told him to wait for 30 days as the investigation was going on. However, the site didn’t ask him about the source of these funds.

The trader, Alexander, called the probable reason behind the blocking is the receipt of USDT in his account, that he received from his friend, last December. Binance also blocked the seller’s account.

Forklog talked with Alexander, who said that his account is still blocked. He mentioned that in contacting customer support, he told me to get in touch with an investigator from the cyber police.

Alexander got in touch with the police representative, who told him that his account is under investigation on a complaint regarding theft of assets, which were now with Alexander. He further stated that he knows the seller very well and noted that the seller bought it from a third-party for cash.

Alexander and the seller have mentioned that the police are interested in three transactions that are worth a little over $500000. However, the investigation has blocked all the funds present in the users’ accounts, which is way over the suspicious transaction amount.

At present, neither Alexander or the seller have received any further detail regarding the investigation. Apart from these two, the accounts of Mikhail and Konstantin have also blocked. All four belong to the Russian Federation.
