Oh look, another crypto guy makes off with a coupla billion bucks

NBD. “Thodex was one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in Turkey with 700,000 users, many lured in by an introductory offer of ‘millions’ of free Dogecoins. Apparently, most of those Dogecoins were never distributed. To make matters worse, media reports say that as many as 391,000 users have now suddenly lost access to their accounts. Following the reports, Thodex “temporarily” closed the platform to address an “abnormal fluctuation in the company accounts.” Meanwhile, Faruk Fatih Ozer, the founder of Thodex, has flown to Albania, taking $2 billion of investors’ money with him, reports CNBC (citing local Turkish media). As you would expect, the Turkish Justice Ministry is seeking a so-called “red notice” with Interpol to arrest Ozer.”
