Crypto Lender Nexo Raided by Authorities in Bulgaria

Authorities in Bulgaria are probing crypto lender Nexo on the accusation of laundering money, tax fraud, unregistered banking, and online scams. According to Bulgarian National Television, It is suspected that the Bulgarians behind the large corporation followed Ruzha Ignatova’s OneCoin Ponzi scheme. The FBI has listed the Bulgarian as one of the top ten most wanted people. Europol and Interpol are both looking for her.

Crypto Lender Nexo is headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria

Prosecutors, National Investigation Service investigators, and DANS law enforcement agents, together with foreign intelligence agencies, have officially started searching the Bulgarian office buildings of the firm that trades cryptocurrencies across the world.

The company has its headquarters in Sofia, Bulgaria, and encourages clients to open bank accounts in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to receive high returns. The interest rate offered to investors was several times that of regular bank deposits. As per reports, the company’s Bulgarian founders misused a substantial part of the significant assets worth several billion dollars.

The scheme’s main coordinators are Bulgarian residents, and the operation was conducted mainly from the Bulgarian region,” Attorney General Siika Mileva stated in a statement. “Proof has been collected that an individual who utilized the platform and transmitted cryptocurrencies has been formally declared a terrorist financing person,” the statement says.

The investigation into the crypto firm’s activities in the nation was initiated a few months ago after international services discovered fraudulent transactions primarily directed at flouting sanctions placed by the European Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States on Russian banks, as well as businesses and Russian people.
