Steven Seagal in a Crypto scam
The sixty-nine-year-old veteran actor found himself in unwanted news headlines a few days ago when a fraudulent cryptocurrency called “Bitcoiin2Gen” (B2G) ran away after defrauding over 500 investors with a sum of around 11 million dollars. For participating in advertising materials for the con artists, Steven
Seagal was reportedly given $250,000 as well as £750,000 worth of B2G. Kristijan Krstic, also known as Felix Logan, was the mastermind of this platform. Because he had previously been accused of conducting Ponzi schemes in Australia and Canada, he adopted this identity. Meanwhile, the frontman for the fraud was John DeMarr, a 55-year-old California private investigator.
His management, on the other hand, claims that he, like everyone else, was deceived and that it was just “poor luck and timing for Steven.”
Steven Seagal eventually agreed to pay a fine of more than $300,000 for falsely endorsing security and failing to disclose that he was compensated for his recommendation. Seagal claimed in a statement at the time that he dropped out of the deal because he had questions about the company’s “bona fides.” He said he only received a portion of the $250,000 amount.
