U.S. Attorney’s Office Files Civil Forfeiture Action to Return $2.3M in Crypto Tied to 37 Scam Victims

The cryptocurrencies – which includes nearly 300,000 (USDC), 1.5 million (USDT), 102,000 (TRX), 3,000 (SOL), and 14,000 (ADA) – were seized from two Binance accounts in January, following an investigation last spring into a “pig butchering” scam targeting a Massachusetts resident. The victim of the scam was tricked into forking over $400,000 to the scammers, who transferred the funds to other wallets that investigators then connected to funds from the other 36 victims.
