Dear Clients,
The cases of cybercrime differ in many ways from conventional crime. Perpetrators of criminal acts online are generally highly intelligent individuals who possess specialized knowledge and skills, which unfortunately they have exploited for negative purposes instead of contributing to the progress and development of humanity.
For this reason, proving criminal offenses and identifying the perpetrators by law enforcement also requires similar capabilities. It is always a challenging task for lawyers representing such cases to keep up with the constant changes and advancements in IT technology.
The training of law enforcement and judicial bodies to address cybercrime has not kept pace with the rapid development of the criminal acts committed in cyberspace. This is now changing, both in terms of legal regulations and in the operational aspects of identifying the perpetrators of these crimes.
The American judicial system has perhaps progressed the most in this regard. The resolution of the Bitclub case is an example of development and progress in this field, although it took quite a long time to reach the trial phase. Unlike many cases that are not even opened, this one is nearing its conclusion.
Every day, there are collapses of MLM systems or cryptocurrencies. Hundreds and thousands of people are left devastated and pushed to the brink of ruin. In the Bitclub case, one fortunate circumstance was that the case fell under the jurisdiction of US judicial authorities, leading to the successful proof of guilt for the organizers of Bitclub, and their assets connected to the crime were seized to be used as the restitution for the victims.
