For the case, the details of a 34-year-old foreigner were identified, against whom a regular procedure file was filed for fraud and embezzlement.

It was preceded by a domestic complaint, according to which unknown perpetrators, posing as company employees, under the pretext of recovering funds, convinced him to install remote access software on his computer.

Then using his details, they created an account at a cryptocurrency exchange, where he transferred the above amount of money via wire transfer.

A thorough police investigation followed, in the context of which, from the analysis of cash flows and the tracking of successive transactions, the foreigner was identified as being involved in the case.

The case file that was created was submitted to the competent prosecuting authority.
