News Tech: Three individuals were detained by American officials on Tuesday for allegedly participating in a conspiracy to steal millions of dollars’ worth of cryptocurrencies while defrauding American banks and a significant cryptocurrency exchange.

According to an unsealed indictment, the three Miami-based men opened accounts with a prominent cryptocurrency exchange using pictures of phoney passport and driver’s licences in order to purchase more than $4 million in bitcoin.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan has accused Esteban Cabrera Da Corte, Luis Hernandez Gonzalez, and Asdrubal Ramirez Meza of a number of crimes, including wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.

The accounts were connected to the trio’s controlled bank accounts. The men promptly transferred the cryptocurrency they had just bought into wallets they had created outside of the exchange. When they called the banks to report the unlawful purchases, the banks paid them back.

Messrs. Cabrera, Hernandez and Ramirez couldn’t be immediately reached for comment. The men will appear in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, the U.S. attorney’s office said.
