Indian Authorities Arrest People Accused Of Crypto Ponzi Scheme

Per a report by Times of India, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of India arrested Dhiraj Patel, Ashiq Shaikh, Vijay Prajapati and Kamruddin Syed the alleged creators of the cryptocurrency KBC Coin.

According to the report, the CID argues that KBC is a Ponzi Scheme. KBC reportedly launched 6 months ago, and its price has not moved since then. KBC coins were reportedly issued at 10 paisas a piece, with the promise that they would skyrocket in value to 10 rupees in a short time.

According to a CID member, an individual named Baljeetsingh Lashkariya promoted KBC via a pyramid scheme, saying that the “first investor in the chain would get an incentive from the last circle of investors. This offer played a major role in bringing more investors to the company.”

Lashkariya and another promoter, Mohan Patel, are reportedly missing.

Remember that Indian legislators have recently proposed a bill that would punish crypto enthusiasts in the country with up to 10 years in jail for violating the country’s anti-crypto laws.

  1. I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Dime Piece LA celebrity streetwear brand? I seem to be unable to check out on Dimepiecela site. I have read in Harpers Bazaar that they were acquired by a UK hedge fund in excess of $50 m. I have just bought the Dimepiece Friends Tote from Amazon and totally love it xox

  2. I operate a vape shop submission site and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the USA that also advertises CBD products. A Calendar month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to say that our account has been restricted and have asked us to take out PayPal as a payment method from our vape store directory site. We do not sell CBD goods like CBD oil. We solely provide web marketing professional services to CBD companies. I have looked into Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Health Store and if you take a good look, you will see that they offer for sale a rather comprehensive variety of CBD products, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement method. It seems that PayPal is employing double standards to different firms. Because of this limitation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has constricted my payment options and presently, I am seriously contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have consulted with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is doing is absolutely against the law and discriminatory as it ought to be applying a consistent benchmark to all firms. I am still to check with yet another attorney from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with substitute payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
