Chongqing Shapingba District Public Security Branch successfully cracked a theft case of virtual currency, and recovered more than 200000 yuan after the conversion of the stolen virtual currency as Ms. Wang of the police. It is amazing that in this case, it was her boyfriend who stole Xiao Wang's virtual currency!
The virtual currency worth more than 200000 yuan was stolen by hackers or something else? Recently, Chongqing Shapingba District Public Security Branch successfully cracked a theft case of virtual currency and recovered more than 200000 yuan after the stolen virtual currency was converted. Unfortunately, in this case, it was her boyfriend who stole Xiao Wang's virtual currency!
On December 13, the sand area police reported the case. One day in July this year, Liu Jun, a police officer on duty of the Criminal Investigation Detachment of the Public Security Bureau of Shapingba District, received an unusual theft. The stolen goods are not physical objects such as mobile phones, computers and cash, but virtual currencies existing in the network.
Virtual currency refers to non real currency. Virtual currency is a specific virtual commodity, not issued by the monetary authority. It does not have such monetary attributes as legal compensation and compulsion. It is not a real currency and should not and cannot be circulated in the market as currency.
"In recent years, new popular words such as virtual currency and blockchain have emerged one after another. Although I have contacted these words on the Internet and have some understanding of the relevant content, this is the first time that I have dealt with a case involving virtual currency in practical work." Liu Jun and his comrade in arms Wang Xiang quickly invested in the investigation of this case.
By querying and checking the transaction records of Ms. Wang's virtual currency account, Liu Jun found that all transaction transfer operations in the account were completed by the account, and there was no sign of forced theft by hackers. Later, Liu Jun and Wang Xiang helped Ms. Wang gradually recall the whole process of virtual currency theft, and found clues in Ms. Wang's statement.
It turns out that Ms. Wang's boyfriend Zhang not only knows that Ms. Wang holds virtual currency, but also knows the account number and password of Ms. Wang's virtual currency wallet. Combined with Ms. Wang's wallet login and Zhang's recent abnormal behavior, the police determined that Zhang was suspected of committing a crime and quickly arrested him.
The police of the Criminal Investigation Detachment of Shapingba District Public Security Bureau immediately launched an investigation after receiving the alarm. After interrogation, Zhang truthfully confessed to the fact that he used the pre obtained account number and password to log in to the virtual currency wallet, thus stealing Ms. Wang's virtual currency. At present, Zhang has taken criminal coercive measures according to law.
According to the investigation, the victim, Xiao Wang, is in his twenties and usually has the habit of buying virtual currency. A while ago, Xiao Wang opened his virtual currency account and found that 20000 USDT coins and 32 OSK coins were missing, losing more than 200000 yuan. After suffering such losses, she was very angry and quickly called 110 to call the police. In order to help Ms. Wang recover their losses, Liu Jun and Wang Xiang conducted rule of law education for Ms. Zhang, encouraging them to return the stolen goods as soon as possible and striving for lighter treatment. With the patient persuasion of Liu Jun and Wang Xiang, Ms. Zhang returned all the stolen money of more than 200000 yuan to Ms. Wang.
The market confidence collapsed, and the "currency circle" chaos emerged one after another. In addition to the price of virtual currency, investors also have to face the investment loss of the "roller coaster", which may also be frozen at any time by the "explosive thunder" and "runaway" funds of the trading platform, or even the illegal theft of personal information, thus falling into legal risks such as money laundering and fraud.
Virtual currency is not legal currency, has no real value, lacks credit support, and related transactions are purely speculative. The "currency circle" should continue to maintain a high pressure and better protect the interests of investors, which should be the key work in the next step. Since the beginning of this year, the value of many virtual currencies has returned to zero. Similar situations will only become more and more common in the future, and the gorgeous foam will eventually burst.
