It has been told recently by DOJ the 6 persons apprehended by FBI are involved in criminal activities. DOJ apprised that the accused, who were arrested from New Hampshire, were operators of crypto Ponzi scheme.
Meanwhile, FBI told that it launched a crackdown operation against members of the movement as they were running an illegal business. For the purposes of raiding and arresting several properties belonging to the members of the movement were raided by FBI. Resultantly, six persons of the movement were arrested and taken into FBI’s custody. Against such persons, the charges have already been imposed and their trials before DOJ has already begun.
