Dutch Anti-Fraud Watchdog Arrests Man in Bitcoin Mining Fraud Case

This week, investigators with the top Dutch anti-fraud watchdog, the Fiscal Information and Investigation Service (FIOD), arrested a man they argue defrauded investors out of millions of euros in what the suspect pitched as a bitcoin mining enterprise.

The 33-year-old man, Berry van Mourik, had reportedly set up two companies to receive payments for purchasing or renting bitcoin miners at his mining farm. However, the circumstances around his arrest now suggest that mine may never existed, or if it did, it wasn’t around for long.
