Turkey continues to be the scene of murders and misdemeanors revolving around cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrency details emerged in the murder of Russian astrologer Galina Trofimova, who lived in Istanbul and died in the past weeks. On the other hand, a gang that defrauded an American person with cryptocurrencies up to 3 million dollars was caught in Istanbul. Here are the details…
Cryptocurrency claim in murder of Russian astrologer
Russian-born astrologer Galina Trofimova, 40-year-old mother of two, was found dead in her home in Istanbul Kağıthane in the past weeks. As a result of the investigations, it is thought that Trofimova’s “wizard” lover, Iranian Armin Asgari, was behind the murder. It turned out that Trofimova, who came to Istanbul about 8 months ago, met Armin Taban in the language course she attended to learn Turkish. Authorities continue to search for Asgari.
However, according to the new allegations about the incident, it is stated that Asgari lost their money as a result of investing in crypto money and committed the murder in the name of taking Trofimova’s gold. Because, according to the theses, Taban invested in cryptocurrencies by borrowing from its surroundings. As a result of the loss of cryptocurrencies, he could not pay his debts and resorted to such a disastrous way. Asgari is now thought to have fled to Iran.
Authorities began work to bring him to Turkey. Moreover, a red notice is expected to be issued about Armin Minimum. According to the investigation of the Homicide Office, Armin Taban killed Trofimova by strangling him with whom he was arguing at night. It is stated that later, in the morning, he took the children out of the residence by saying “we are going to breakfast”. After that, Taban disappeared, leaving the children in a hotel room. Doubtful, it turned out that he went to Istanbul Airport for a while after leaving the hotel.
The perpetrators of the 3 million dollar strike are in Turkey Istanbul
According to another report, authorities caught a cryptocurrency gang in Istanbul. Through social media, American movie producer Lori-Etta Taub fell victim to a $3 million scam. The producer was deceived by the high interest bullshit. Subsequently, Taub came to Turkey last week and filed a fraud complaint with the prosecutor’s office. According to the petition, the person who contacted him through social media was a US citizen living in Turkey. However, in fact, there were four people, one of whom was Nigerian, in the gang in question.
According to the petition, the person who contacted the producer said his name was Alex Quin, and then they started talking. This person introduced himself as an investment advisor. Afterwards, he started to direct Taub about investment. Stating that they talked about investment for three months, Taub was convinced by the promise of “making money with interest”. The producer, who sent money to the account numbers and crypto money wallets that he trusted this person, made a total of 3 million dollars in three months. As would be assumed, he did not receive either his principal or interest.
