The WSJ posted a very well written and extensive piece this morning on pig-butchering and China's crackdown on it. One of the key takeaways is that there is a heavy human trafficking tie-in when it comes to scams.

PIG BUTCHERING


1)    The factors bad actors value when choosing a financial product align with those offered by #cryptocurrency.
2)    Cryptocurrency Suspicious Activity Reports (#SARs).
3)    Victim Complaints- FBI #IC3 Advisories & #CFPB complaints.
4)    Blockchain Analytics, while helpful in certain situations, cannot and does not provide the complete picture of the use of cryptocurrency in illicit finance. At best, it just identifies the tip of the iceberg.

I took the opportunity to draw attention to the horrific crime of #pigbutchering, debunk the myth that “all cryptocurrency transactions are recorded on the blockchain,” and point out that the partial recovery of the Colonial Pipeline ransom was the exception, not the rule.

Dismissing cryptocurrency as a useful tool for illicit finance just because some transactions are recorded on a blockchain is misguided. And is wholly inconsistent with cryptocurrency Suspicious Activity Reports, FBI advisories, and victim complaints.

I suggested that the SAR form be updated to include specific categories for cryptocurrency and cryptocurrency firms so that better data on #cryptocrimecan be collected.

🇰🇭 Nov 16, 2023: Sha Zhu Pan 杀猪盘

🏨 In the wake of Covid-19 pandemic & Cambodia’s ban on gambling, Sihanoukville, Cambodia (a product of China’s Belt & Road Initiative), became a largely vacant zone, giving criminals an opportunity to repurpose abandoned hotels & resorts into glorified ‘scam compounds’.[1] Soon, the compounds were filled with tens of thousands of desperate job-seekers ensnared from several East Asian countries. In June 2023, INTERPOL issued a warning declaring scam centres "as a serious & imminent threat to public safety".[2]

Incredible but true!

According to court documents, David Saffron, of Australia, and Vincent Mazzotta Jr., of the Hollywood Hills area of #losangeles, allegedly conspired to operate a fraudulent scheme to induce victims to invest in various trading programs that falsely promised to employ an artificial intelligence automated trading bot to trade victims’ investments in cryptocurrency markets and earn high-yield profits.

This Australian crypto scam, promoted by Chuck Norris, allegedly just made up their CEO 🥸…

A chief executive officer whose claimed qualifications appear to have no basis in fact was used to promote the HyperVerse crypto fund, alongside celebrity messages of support, as part of a push to recruit new investors into the scheme.

FROM Jan SANTIAGO

The new Chainalysis 2024 Crypto Crime report is now recognizing pig butchering scams as its own giant category, and recognizing that it is still a vast underestimate.

Meanwhile, John Griffin and Kevin Mei have done impressive, thorough work mapping out the scam networks and money laundering patterns. While I think the $75 billion that they traced exiting Chinese exchanges may not all be pig butchering scams, they for sure are dark money.

THE QUESTION

🚨 Are Binance Pay and P2P Merchant Services inadvertently facilitating crypto crime? 🚨


During several of my more recent "pig butchering" and wallet exploit investigations, I've noticed some commonalities. Suspects (based in south east Asia) appear to be exploiting Binance Pay and Binance P2P Merchant Services to launder illicit funds off-chain. 😱

But what are these services??

💹Binance Pay is a contactless, borderless, and secure cryptocurrency payment technology designed by Binance. Binance Pay allows the user to pay and get paid in crypto from their friends and family worldwide. This occurs via an application on a mobile device and in order to send to an individual, the sender would need the receivers QR code, Binance account email, phone number, or Binance ID.

💱Binance's P2P plaform which allows traders to buy and sell cryptocurrencies directly with other individuals. Merchants can make money by posting trading ads and completing trades on the Binance P2P platform.

Technical analysis

On March 8, the U.S. Department of Justice announced the court authorized seizure of over $1.4 million worth of USDT – the stablecoin issued by Tether – from five Ethereum addresses. According to DOJ, the funds, which are suspected fraud proceeds, will be returned to the victims of a massive tech support fraud scheme.
