Cryptocurrency Tracing and Recovery
The first step to recovering virtual assets is to determine where they were moved to and to whom. This establishes our target.
We are ready to find your misappropriated virtual assets with state of the art technology and experienced Blockchain Analysts with years of experience with Cryptocurrencies.
Cryptocurrenices are digital assets that utilize Blockchain technology in order to provide a decentralized monetary system, often outside of the Jurisdiction of regulatory bodies.
Are Cryptos Traceable?
While Cryptocurrencies are, with few exceptions, decentralized, almost all virtual currencies are traceable. Cryptocurrencies are kept in digital accounts referred to as wallets. Each time Cryptocurrency is moved from one wallet to another it is recorded in the Blockchain.
The Technical Solution
We are able to not only trace the movement of Cryptocurrency and identify the specific wallets, we are also able to identify where those wallets are being held and even track the locations of those that access the wallets.
Not all Cryptos are Equal
Most Cryptocurrenices are traceable, however, not all. We are able to trace the most popular Cryptocurrenices, including Bitcoin and Ethereum, as well as others.
Hire a Law Firm or Work with the Police for Cryptocurrency Scam/Fraud Tracing & Recovery
If you have recently fallen victim to a cryptocurrency scam or fraud, you may know how challenging it can be to recover your funds, especially if you try to handle it on your own. At our firm, we offer expert witness assistance and we are available to assist law enforcement agencies, upon their request, to help you with the process of cryptocurrency scam/fraud tracing and recovery.
The use of digital currency has been on the rise, and with it, the occurrence of crypto fraud or crime. When theft or loss occurs, crypto tracing is now possible to track the funds and potentially recover them.
Reasons for Cryptocurrency Fraud or Scams
The current environment has become a breeding ground for criminals. Here are some of the reasons why:
Lack of Understanding about Cryptocurrency
Many investors do not fully understand how cryptocurrency operates, making it easier for scammers to prey on unsuspecting victims with cryptocurrency rumors. Knowledge gaps and constantly evolving blockchain technology create opportunities for fraudsters. However, our cryptocurrency asset tracing service can help you navigate through these challenges.
The massive rise in cryptocurrency prices, coupled with stories of crypto millionaires, creates fear of missing out (FOMO) and the anticipation of huge profits. This can make average investors susceptible to scams, as some cryptocurrencies have made significant gains in just one year.
Lack of Consumer Protection
Unlike stock market investors who enjoy a certain level of security through regulations, cryptocurrencies offer little consumer protection. It can be difficult to differentiate between legitimate and fake businesses in the crypto space.
Tracing Stolen Cryptocurrency
In order to best assist our clients with their recovery process, we can start tracing their cryptocurrency as soon as we receive the documentation.
Our tracing service’s goal is to identify which Virtual Asset Service Provider the assets were sent to, to enable our clients to work with law enforcement or a law firm to potential freeze any assets in the relevant wallets.
We are able to assist law enforcement and law firms to prepare freezing injunctions for wallet linked to the clients case, with the goal of preventing future transfers.
Blockchain transparency allows us to trace on-chain movements of crypto assets on the most popular blockchains and determine where the stolen cryptos went. If the funds are going to a service or exchange, our investigative team can work towards identifying the Virtual Asset Service Provider (such as an exchange) that received the crypto asset(s).
Steps to Trace Cryptocurrency
- The first step is for the client to send the investigation company the relevant information and evidence connected to the initial cryptocurrency transfers they sent.
- Then the investigator will review the documents and trace the cryptocurrency
- If the trace is successful, a full report of the transactions should be drafted. At CNC Intelligence, our team meticulously details the relevant transfers, as well as supporting documentation to aid law enforcement and law firms to request a subpoena for the identified transfers to Virtual Asset Service Providers.
- At CNC Intelligence, all reports are reviewed for quality assurance
- The Client should bring the report to the relevant law enforcement agency or their law firm. CNC Intelligence is available to answer technical questions and can serve as an expert witness for both civil and criminal cases.
The videos on our YouTube channel can provide helpful information on avoiding scams or hacks.
The best way to protect yourself from cryptocurrency fraud is to approach it like any other investment or purchase. Just because you come across the terms “Bitcoin” or “cryptocurrency” doesn’t mean it’s a guaranteed payoff.
How Much Bitcoin
While the amount of Cryptocurrency that is either stolen, embezzled or misappropriated is unknown, experts agree the figure is in the Billions every year. You do not have to be part of this statistic. Before making any Cryptocurrency purchase, we can provide a full due-diligence report of all the Crypto Wallets involved.
