I’m a panelist at the April Offshore Alert conference speaking about enforcement trends in cryptocurrency and I’m sure we will be talking about this case, one of the largest virtual currency Ponzi-schemes to date. Apparently, the accused ringleader was not aware that his phone and laptop were subject to search at the border. As a former Special Agent with U.S. Customs and federal prosecutor, I’ve defended cases involving border searches and seizures of cash.
I’ll also be addressing cryptocurrency regulation and enforcement. Offshore Alert is unique because it seeks out speakers and attendees with differing perspectives on cryptocurrency, fraud, government regulation and enforcement, money laundering, and asset recovery and protection. It’s truly a conference where you will be surrounded by the good, the bad, the ugly and the very guilty.
