Cryptocurrency Hedge Fund Founder Admits to Massive Fraud

(The AEGIS Alliance) – On Thursday, a  founder of two New York-based cryptocurrency hedge funds, age 24, with greater than $100 million in investments made a guilty plea to securities fraud.

Stefan He Qin was charged with duping investors by claiming he used a buying and selling algorithm to reap the benefits of value variations for various cryptocurrencies, federal prosecutors announced.

Qin stole investor dollars from his Virgil Sigma Fund LP and tried to dip into his VQR Multistrategy Fund LP to pay back investors from the first fund, prosecutors mentioned. He admitted to attempting to steal from one more fund he managed to cover VQR fund redemption demands, the statement reads.

“The whole house of cards has been revealed, and Qin now awaits sentencing for his brazen thievery,” Audrey Strauss, the acting U.S. Attorney for Manhattan, said in the announcement.

Qin’s fraud relied on misrepresentations about his investment technique to lure millions of investor’s money into the fraudulent cryptocurrency companies, prosecutors stated. Qin, an Australian national, embezzled virtually all of the capital from the Virgil Sigma fund to pay for, amongst other personal costs, a penthouse apartment. He faces up to 20 years behind bars.

“Mr. Qin has accepted full responsibility for his actions and is committed to doing what he can to make amends,” his attorneys, Sean Hecker and Shawn Crowley said in a press release.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed a parallel civil case against Qin last December.

  1. I’ve never been more grateful for my life than the day I met [vladimir kolarov] from thehackerspro.
    I was on a trip to Australia with my family when someone stole $4.4 million in cryptocurrency from me. I’d been using [coinbase] for years, but I just thought it was a really good way to keep track of my money—I didn’t realize how important it was until it was gone.
    When we got back from our trip, I couldn’t even make my rent payment because of this theft! I didn’t know where else to turn, so I found thehackerspro on Google and reached out to them through their website. To be honest, at first I didn’t think they would be able to help me at all—but then [vladimir kolarov ] called me and got right on it!

    They were able to reverse-engineer some of the transactions that had happened during our time in Australia and find out who had stolen my money. And then they went after them! They found out where the thief lived and worked, and then they took him down! They even recovered some of the money from him before he could spend it!

  2. I was scammed by cityinvestgp, I got a message from a trader on my Instagram and told me about how high their profit after investing was, I decided to invest in the online trade but they kept asking for more money including withdrawal fee and it was until then I realized I was being scammed. I couldn’t let go because I invested my savings as at that time. I had to make a research on how I could recover my funds from them and I came across the website REMOTESPYTECH (@) GMAIL COM after so many searches. I read several good reviews about the website from various scam victims they have helped and I decided to contact the website admin for help.
    I was opportune to get my money back from the scam brokers through the help of the website recovery professional, they recovered my investments for me with all the profits I was entitled to within two weeks of contacting them. You can write REMOTESPYTECH (@) gmailcom for help too if you a victim of any kind of scam

  3. I was scammed by a Binary online website in march. I lost about $35,000 to them and they denied all my withdrawal request, and gave me all sort of filty request. It was a really hard time for me because that was all I had and they tricked me into investing the money with a guarantee that I will make profit from the investment. They took all my money and I did not hear from them anymore. I was able to recover all the money I lost just last month with the help of REMOTESPYTECH . I paid 10% of the recovered funds as his service charge after I got all my money back. I am really grateful to him because I know a lot of people here have been scammed and need help.

  4. Fraudulent binary options go to great lengths to advertise their platforms mostly on social networking sites, trading websites, message boards, and even spam e-mails.. They make promises of easy money, low risk, and superior customer service Potential investors are also cold-called from boiler room operations, where high-pressure salespeople use banks of phones to make as many calls as possible to offer “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunities. Many binary option outlets have been exposed as fraudulent and cash has been recovered from them through. To recover your money or bitcoin from Binary option scammer i suggest you contact a recovery company like (REMOTESPYTECH (@) GMAILCOM)

  5. I was able to recover my stolen funds to some fake brokers with the quality services rendered by Dave at ( F U N D R E S T O R E R (@) G M I L () C O M ). I invested with the fake broker on the promise of getting 20 percent back on every of my investment monthly which was a suitable deal but after investing I couldn’t reach them via support and emails then I knew I was ripped off then Dave came to my rescue and I was able to recover my loss and apprehend the perpetrators which were handed over to the authorities. Need similar assistance write Dave now!!!

  6. I was impatient to carry out necessary research but I really wanted to jump on the crypto trading and investment buzz. Unfortunately for me, I invested 75,700 GBP worth of bitcoin with a fraudulent company. I was happy to watch my account grow to 214,575 GBP within a couple of weeks. But I didn’t realize I was dealing with a scam company, until I tried to make an attempt to withdraw. I made a withdrawal request, and noticed my account was suddenly blocked for no apparent reason. I tried contacting customer support, but all to no avail. I needed my money back at all cost, because I could not afford to let it go. So I tried all possible means to make sure I recovered my scammed bitcoin. I did a lot of online search for help, and tried to see if there were other people who had any similar experience. I stumbled upon a cryptocurrency forum were a couple of people mentioned that they had been through the same process but were able to recover their lost cryptocurrency, funds with the help of CRYPTORECOVERYLTD@PROTONMAIL.COM. So I file a report on CRYPTORECOVERYLTD@PROTONMAIL.COM and he was able to help me get back all my lost funds withing 2 weeks I feel indebted to him. Apart from trying to express my gratitude to them once again using this medium, I will recommend anybody who wants to recover scammed bitcoin, stolen cryptocurrency, funds lost to binary options forex, investment and any other form of online scam to reach out to CRYPTORECOVERYLTD@PROTONMAIL.COM.
