Criminals rarely even use crypto to withdraw compromised money
Cointelegraph reported in June that Artem Sychev, the first deputy director of the Information Security Department of the Bank of Russia, said that fraudsters rarely use cryptocurrency to withdraw stolen money.
The country’s central bank stated that criminals prefer to cash out stolen money rather than withdraw it with digital currency. Sychev said:
“In the Russian Federation, this withdrawing of stolen funds with crypto is used very rarely. Yes, sometimes cryptocurrencies are used to withdraw funds, but now it is not widespread, because it is much easier for an attacker to get cash.”
