    Defunct QuadrigaCX Exchange Victims Are Being Contacted By The FBI

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation is now reaching out to QuadrigaCX victims via email in what appears to be confirmation that the federal agency has started carrying out investigations to try and establish what could have led to the collapse of the Canadian cryptocurrency exchange platform.

    Valerie Gauthier, a victim specialist has been emailing multiple people who had engaged in dealings with the platform. According to multiple exchanges that she has engaged with the victims, she is looking to alert them about a news portal that contains information and details about the case against the crypto platform. In some of the exchanges that have been shared with CoinDesk, Valerie notes that:

    “A criminal investigation can be a lengthy undertaking, and, for several reasons, we cannot tell you about its progress at its time,” she went on to add that the victims could get in touch with the federal agency by writing an email to [email protected]

    She was, however, quick to state that:

    “inquiries about the status of the case will not be addressed.”

    It appears that the agency has been conducting its own investigations into the collapse of the platform since early 2019. The FBI had released a statement in June last year stating that it was interested in speaking with people who had worked with the cryptocurrency exchange.

    Public Questionnaire

    The agency had at the time sent out a public questionnaire it wanted the public to fill and submit to them. Multiple people who spoke to CoinDesk noted that they had filled the questionnaire and sent it back to the agency.

    So far, the federal agency is among four other national agencies that are interested in looking into the operations of the crypto company. The Canadian Royal Mounted Police has also been undertaking its own investigations.

    Payment Processor

    On other news, Roger Knox, on Monday went before a judge in Boston and pled guilty to engaging in securities fraud. You should note that Roger is the operator and founder of Wintercap, the Swiss-based asset management company.

    He is accused of being a part of numerous schemes aimed at manipulating the market, including taking part in microcap securities pump and dump operations.
