The world of digital currency has seen its fair share of positive and negatives. The world has allowed print currency free transaction. It has also seen quick cryptocurrency transfers but their happens to be a few setbacks as well.
The cryptocurrency world has seen frauds and thugs trying to manipulate the investors. In a recent case lobbyist Jack Abramoff, known for being notorious, defrauded investors.
Abramoff conspired the investors to commit illegal transactions which included wire frauds and violations of the Lobbying Disclosure Act relating to the 2018 initial coin offering (ICO) for AML BitCoin.
He was, however, found guilty via telephone on Tuesday. The fraudster admitted that he had coaxed million of investors through the ICO. It is the first prosecution of a lobbyist for a criminal violation of the Lobbying Disclosure Act.
Abramoff past history
The lobbyist is known for being hired by Andrade to develop a public relations and marketing campaign for the ICO. He distributed false information about crypto assets through this medium.
The charges put on the prosecutors suggest that Andrade took in $5.6 million from more than 2,400 investors. It was basically through their Nevada-based National AtenCoin Foundation which is one of the entity that conducted the ICO.
Back in 2017, the NAC had begun to issue tokes in a bid to raise funds for development of the AML BitCoin.
