Concerning the British company that was engaged in the trade of Gram tokens, Russian law enforcement agencies may initiate a fraud case.
The case may be initiated based on a statement by a group of investors of the Telegram Open Network crypto project. They turned to the Investigative Committee for help because the company took a commission from them, although, the team of Pavel Durov refused to launch the Gram crypto and the TON network.
Russian businessmen, with the help of a British intermediary, bought Gram cryptocurrency for a total amount of up to $ 11.7 million.
Following Durov’s announcement of the closure of the TON project, investors terminated the agreement with the British company. However, they received back only $ 10.2 million.
Experts believe that the company took part of the money invested by investors in the form of an asset management fee.
What kind of company in question is not yet specified. However, it is worth noting that the founder of the Telegram messenger in mid-May announced his refusal to issue Gram tokens. Then Pavel Durov said that TON project investors had already received $ 1.2B back.
