The victim of the scammer was a resident of Usolye-Sibirskoe (Irkutsk region), who wanted to start mining cryptocurrency. The regional Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs reported that a 39-year-old Russian found an advertisement on the Internet for the sale of a mining farm. He decided to install equipment in his garage in order not only to mine cryptocurrency, but also to heat the room at the same time. The seller was found in Omsk, at least as stated in the ad. Although law enforcement officers do not exclude that the fraudster lives in a different region altogether. The buyer, in the course of correspondence with the criminal, agreed to make an advance payment of 45,000 rubles. The fraudster even sent the resident of Usolye-Sibirskoye photos of the invoice and equipment that will be delivered to the buyer. That is why the man quickly agreed to send a deposit. After transferring funds to the specified details, he began to wait for his goods. However, the farm was never delivered, as a result, the victim went to the police. Law enforcement officers have already found out that the invoice was fake. They also opened a criminal case and started looking for the suspect. Note that in Russia last year the demand for mining equipment noticeably increased due to the rise in price of digital currencies.
