How We Can Help with Cryptocurrency Fraud Cases
Cryptocurrency poses a uniquely intricate legal situation in which federal agencies are struggling to apply regulations to a financial institution that they do not fully understand. To make matters all the more complex, cryptocurrency is designed to act outside of centralized banks and governmental control, creating a truly independent form of currency. While federal agencies attempt to gain a foothold on cryptocurrency and its regulations, it is likely individuals and companies will be accused of cryptocurrency fraud and targeted by unjust investigations.
Our nationwide cryptocurrency attorneys can defend your rights in the following case types and more:
- Unreported offshore bank accounts: Cryptocurrency operates outside of centralized banks, but it can eventually generate income in recognizable world currencies, like the American dollar. Using cryptocurrency transactions to earn world currencies and then storing those in hidden bank accounts could bring federal attention, investigations, and fraud charges.
- Tax crimes: The American government has labeled cryptocurrencies as property, so they can be taxed. If you are trading cryptocurrency, you must be aware of any tax laws that apply to your transactions and realized gains or losses, or you could be accused of tax evasion.
- Money laundering: Federal agencies are acutely concerned over how cryptocurrency could be manipulated into a money laundering scheme, or a plan to hide the true source of illegally obtained money. Keep clear records of your cryptocurrency transactions to avoid being accused of this serious crime.
- Securities fraud: Insider trading and other forms of cybercrime related to security fraud are a hot topic when it comes to cryptocurrency crimes. In effect, cryptocurrency value and control are similar to trading on the stock market, which creates a window for illegal insider trading, deals, and cryptocurrency manipulation.
