Takedown of Online Investment Fraud with Help by Eurojust and Europol

An Action Day, carried out on 6 September 2022, resulted in the arrests of two authorised disposers of a network operating various fraudulent online investment platforms. Over 100 victims from 11 different countries lost several million euros through these platforms, which promised profits for investments that never took place. The investigations were conducted by authorities from Finland, Germany, Belgium, and Latvia. They were supported by Eurojust and Europol. The operation was carried out as part of the European Multidisciplinary Platform Against Criminal Threats (EMPACT) (→ eucrim 1/2022, 35)
