When you know cryptocurrency red flags are totally bad news

Aug 10th '22

Some of the most common red flags are;


1.       Many payments in small amounts to avoid attracting attention

2.       High-value cryptocurrency transactions in only a short time period. Or staggered and regular patterns with no further transactions for a sustained period.

3.       Instantly transferring virtual funds out of highly controlled areas and into low-regulated dominions

4.       Immediately withdrawing virtual funds without any in-between transactions.

5.       Depositing previously identified stolen funds into crypto wallets.
