Finnish victim involves in “satisfactory talk” with $24 mln Bitcoin scam suspects
The businessman of Finland who is victimised in the Bitcoin scam worth $24 million or 5564 Bitcoins have engaged in talks with the suspects. The fraudulent scheme has taken place in Thailand. The two primary suspects of this Bitcoin scam incident are citizens of Thailand, itself.
Bangkok Post has reported that the victim named Aarni Otavi Saarimaa is trying to make a negotiation with the suspects. The criminals involve a prominent stock trader, namely, Prasit Srisuwan and an investor called Chakris Ahmad. As per the legislation of Thailand, the criminals can become free of complaints if they reach a settlement deal with the victim, in this case, Saarima.
The statement of the victim
On the completion of the talks between the two parties, Saarima has denied commenting or disclose information about the discussion. His comment has been simple and he stated, “My talks with them [the two suspects] turned out to be very satisfactory but I cannot give any details now.”
In this entire web of fraudulent act, the two criminals deceived Saarima by making him invest in 5564 bitcoins. They directed his investment in three separate firms known as DNA 2002, NX Chain Inc and ExpaySoftware. Once he gave away his digital currencies, he failed to receive the stake as promised which acted as a breach of trust.
In contrast to the victim, the suspect has given his statement as the meeting got over. Prasit claimed himself to be the “work colleague” and “friend” of the victim. He repeatedly kept on saying that he is innocent and he was rather deceived by Prinya. Few days earlier, in a press conference Prasit Srisuwan clarified that in the entire event, his role was limited to only providing services of brokerage to Saarima and the firms, DNA 2002 Plc.
There has, indeed, been many twists and turns in the cases after Saarimaa lodged a complaint against the criminals to the police in January, 2018. It is reported that Prinya eloped from Thailand and has taken shelter in United States. Meanwhile, his siblings got arrested and was eventually released because they were bailed. The ones who were arrested involved Jiratpisit Jaravijit, his younger brother and a television actor and also his sister, Supitcha Jaravijit.
