The quartet had set up a number of fake cryptocurrency exchanges. Police know of six fake exchanges that they operated, but there is a definite possibility that there may be more. The six fake exchanges include: moneycraft.info, wowex.online, swapex.net, myexchanger.lv, iconvex.net, and likechange.biz. Police say that the criminals had “special knowledge and skills in the field of programming” and “have created their own CMS-system for managing the content of exchange sites.” Unsure of Amount Stolen Police are asking those who were scammed by the fake cryptocurrency exchanges to come forward and file complaints. As of now, law enforcement does not know exactly how much the four men were able to steal from their victims.
