Scam with cryptocurrencies to the VIPs of Northern Rome, the Hu coin wizards “disappeared with all the money”
Written by aquitodovale

There is a new suspected scam that stirs the nights and corrodes the liver of an army of investors who, instead of entrusting their savings to authorized credit channels, have become involved in a pyramid of chain investments, focusing on deposits of cryptocurrencies that promise “safe” if not amazing returns. In the circles of North Rome, already shaken by the case of the broker Massimo Bochicchio, who died two weeks ago in mysterious circumstances and accused of having deceived by showing false documents dozens of customers who have lost millionaire investments, now we are talking about nothing else. This time, a virtual “wallet” ended up under accusation in which to deposit some coins calls Hu which give the right to acquire a membership within the system.

Massimo Bochicchio, also the TV presenter Mario Mattioli in his network: “Gone 350 thousand euros”

THE SCHEME

In practice, however, it would be an investment process that risks following the pattern devised by Charles Ponzi, a well-known scammer of the 1920s, and also used by Bernie Madoff, the American banker convicted of one of the largest financial fraud of all time. The deal is proposed to the potential investor, promising high revenues in a short time. Money is collected and new entrants look for other investors as in a chain. As new followers arrive with their money, the old ones are paid (in part) in order to demonstrate that the investment pays off. But the gains are just starting around and when the flow of new investors stops or whoever is in charge of the system decides not to feed it anymore, the money disappears, the scheme jumps and everyone (or almost) ends up on the pavement.

Until a few weeks ago, a Telegram channel was in operation with investors, which today, however, appears closed, leaving subscribers with no more points of reference. To tremble, now, are mainly professionals and entrepreneurs between 40 and 50 years of Rome well recruited between a padel match and a happy hour. All convinced that they have become part of a system reserved for a lucky few and exclusive, advertised with alluring platforms. Re-launched in a tam tam seasoned with videos that recall the metaverse as if it were already a reality of certain earnings.

In recent days, many have rushed to lawyers or accountants in search of advice on how to act, but there are those who have confided only in a few friends and with a certain embarrassment. “The fear – explains a tributary from Prati – is not only that of having lost one’s savings, but also that of running into criminal penalties since, at the same time as an investor, one passes on to propose to others to capitalize one’s money , one incurs the abusive exercise of the profession. To manage money, in fact, you need authorizations or registration in the register of financial advisors. This is why many are also afraid to report having been scammed. Not to mention – he adds – the earthquake that the affair is causing in those who convinced family, girlfriends and friends to join the circle ». The system starts from afar, its roots go to China. But a Roman “colonel”, as they call him in jargon, would have landed the system in the circle of professionals and entrepreneurs looking to diversify their investments. And who knows, someone, even to make money that is unknown to the taxman.

THE PANIC

“It all started a bit for fun and a bit to differentiate investments, especially when the markets began to show uncertainties with Covid. At the beginning there were Hyper returns, a friend assured me, then, now, silence. There are many of us who no longer receive news and do not obtain divestment. Before closing the Telegram channel, the managers, after having said that there had been problems with the software, then admitted that the creators had disappeared for months “, confided one of the” followers “. There are those who bought cryptocurrency for five thousand, twenty thousand, fifty thousand euros. But in word of mouth driven by winking videos, aimed at increasing curiosity and self-esteem, there are also those who have invested up to half a million euros. Ivano Giacomelli, secretary of the Codes, the Center for Citizen’s Rights, warns from his website: «There is a risk that it is a re-proposal of the Ponzi scheme. A film that has already been seen is being repeated, on the one hand there is the promise of a very advantageous investment and on the other hand there are savers who are unable to get back what they paid. All seasoned with captivating promises and fascinating terms, behind which, however, there seems to be very little. I urge you to pay close attention, especially when it comes to cryptocurrencies. Nobody gives anything away, let alone when it comes to investments ».
