Through a non-existent society, the detainees managed investments of the cryptocurrency called bitcoin, virtual currencies that are used as a payment system on the internet or as a new investment alternative
To attract the victims, they offered high profitability, initially paying the interest generated with the contributions of new investors until after a while they stopped receiving the profits and did not reimburse the intervened virtual currencies to their holders
The amount of bitcoins scammed amounts to more than 380, whose value is about 19,250 euros each, so the total amount of money scammed is more than 7,000,000 euros
One of the detainees, pressured by a multitude of clients to whom he had not returned his investments, took refuge in a town in Cuenca where he was finally arrested
