Binary options – Millions of crime dividends transferred to perpetrators
The international investigations around the Vienna Cybercrime Trials with dozens of offshore companies bring new surprises almost daily. Until the arrest of one of its principals in early 2019, he led this cybercrime organization together with his wife Marina Barak, the Israeli Gery Shalon, and the Russian Vladislav Smirnov. The organization's purpose was the operation of binary options and broker scams. Millions of stolen funds were transferred to Online Prospect Ltd in Hong Kong, owned by the Israeli Simon Tetroashvili and the German Marc Ostheimer.
