UK police are returning stolen cryptocurrency to scam victims affected by the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) attack.
Scammers steal victims’ funds from the Binance Smart Chain Blockchain network, losing an average of nearly $230,000 each. One of the DeFI protocols was affected and many users are now waiting for their funds to be returned.
Manchester Police were able to recover $25 million and return it to the true owners of the funds due to the crooks’ inability to properly store and secure the stolen virtual currency. The investigation continues, with the goal of identifying as many investors as possible and returning their funds. It may take a while, but law enforcement agencies in the UK are already working to return users’ funds.
