涉嫌ICO欺诈,加密货币借记卡商遭SEC起诉

如今,美国政府正在积极履行承诺,继续打击ICO诈骗行为。

上周五,SEC宣布对Centra Tech Inc.的第三位联合创始人Raymond Trapani提出指控,后者去年通过DJ Khaled和拳击手Floyd Mayweather背书的ICO发起了一次融资,计划借此为其加密货币借记卡筹集资金3200万美元。据了解,该公司的另外两名联合创始人Sam Sharma和Robert Farkas已经在本月早些时候被起诉并被捕。

SEC称,Trapani是本次ICO欺诈计划的“策划者”,该计划诱使投资者相信其公司拥有主流信用卡合作伙伴关系、假冒创始人传记以及对CTR的价格操纵。

The SEC calls Trapani the “mastermind” of the fraudulent ICO scheme, which lured investors with claims of major credit card partnerships, misrepresentations about the company’s product, fake founder biographies and price manipulation of its Centra tokens (CTR).

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York also unsealed criminal securities and wire fraud charges against Trapani, who was arrested Friday morning. Trapani faces one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, one count of securities fraud and one count of wire fraud. Three out of the four charges carry a maximum sentence of 20 years,
