The FIOD arrested two men on Monday in two criminal investigations. They are suspected of money laundering with crypto currencies, reports the tax investigation service Tuesday on its website.
The first study is about a 45-year-old man from South Holland. He is suspected of having laundered more than 2 million euros.
The man made large purchases with a cryptocredit card that could not be reconciled with the income he had reported to the tax authorities. The man was seized for, among other things, 10,000 euros in cash, 3 kilos of gold and a car.
In another investigation, a 31-year-old man from Groningen was arrested and two more suspects were heard. In total they would have laundered an amount of 100,000 euros. In addition, seized items such as computers, smartphones and USB sticks.
The research is based on data from an earlier study of bestmixer.io, an online service that can conceal the origin and destination of crypto currencies.
