Goodbye, Sam Bankman-Fried, You Won’t Be Missed
Sam Bankman-Fried, FTX co-founder, has had $700 million worth of his assets seized by the US Government.
So… What Happened?
Bankman-Fried is under investigation for failing to file suspicious activity reports to government agencies. An SF court approved a restraining order and the government seized assets connected to Bankman-Fried in an effort to pay back victims of fraud.
A Quick Roundup of All the Trouble He’s Brought
- He’s been accused of running a $1.96 million international Ponzi scheme.
- He founded Zenith Tiles, a company linked to questionable business practices.
- He allegedly instructed employees to perform illegal activities.
- He was caught up in a looting scandal in India.
Needless to say, Bankman-Fried has made quite a name for himself – not in a good way. In response to these events, FTX has returned stolen funds and is strengthening its AML/KYC policies and procedures.
The Moral of the Story
If you’re gonna break the law, you’d better be careful – the US Government is coming for you! That’s right, Sam Bankman-Fried, don’t think we won’t remember what you did!
So let this be a lesson to all of us who are thinking about crossing the line – you will be caught and held accountable for your actions. Play it safe and stay within the boundaries – it’s the only way to stay out of trouble.
