BitConnect Ponzi Promoter Crag Grant Confirms SEC’s Phone Call Over BCC Token Scam
One of the most important persons related to the BitConnect Pozi Scheme, Craig Grant, confirmed that he received a phone call from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on September 26.
He explained that the talked for over a period of 25 minutes with the regulatory agency and that the conversations were very positive and pleasant.
In a YouTube video, he explained that two agents of the SEC were talking to him about the whole situation. After it, he confesses that it was the most pleasant conversation he had on BitConnect since the agents seemed to understand for what he was going through.
After it, he said that he had to dig on his social accounts such as Facebook and WhatsApp to provide the SEC with very important information related to BitConnect. Grant could have made millions of dollars after promoting and investing in the BitConnect Ponzi scheme that collapsed at the beginning of the current year.
According to some reports, Mr Grant has been living with funds stolen to investors that were involved with BitConnect.
Nonetheless, during the video, he mentions that he has ‘lost a lot’ during his time using BitConnect, but he has also admitted that he is in a better financial situation because of his investments in the fraudulent platform.
After the conversation he had with the agents, he said that they sent a list of things that they would really need from him. That includes all the information about Glenn Arcaro, one of the top US BitConnect investors and winners.
About it, he mentioned:
“The thing that they’re interested in the most, after the conversation they emailed me a list of things that they would like for me to provide… but on the phone, the thing that they said I need to focus on is any conversations I had with Glenn.”
Glenn has disappeared from the public scene since BitConnect’s collapse and is believed that he is traveling with different passports through all over the world. According to other videos uploaded by Grant, he could be in Asia.
The SEC is working very hard in order to receive as much information as possible since the investigation needs to continue and find those responsible for the BitConnect collapse. In India, there are some individuals that have been arrested after being part of the scam in the country.
Grant has also explained that he analysed several conversations he had with Glenn about how to better promote BitConnect and increase his earnings. Although he knows that selling unregistered securities in the United States is illegal, he did not seem worried about it.
Additionally, the SEC requested all the information about bank accounts, cryptocurrency wallets, promotion videos sent on the internet and everything that he could provide.
In the future, the regulatory agency will contact Grant back in order to verify all the information he gave to the SEC.
