André Luis Feitosa

Santo Domingo.- The National District Office of the Prosecutor on Wed. charged seven alleged scammers and money launderers through the companies My Trader Coin and Money Free, the region’s first indictment in a virtual currency case.

The prosecution says 111 victims were defrauded out US$1.0 million, that were subsequently laundered through a Ponzi scheme.

The accused: André Luis Feitosa Santos, Gabriel Eduardo Gómez Otero, Guarien Jesús Ariza Lluberes, Guarien Buenaventura Ariza García, Ronny Rafael Martínez Taveras, Aaron David Taveras Vélez and Bramna Elizabeth Leger Burgos.

“Since 2014 they structured a criminal organization, which through the use of deceptive advertising and the use of electronic, computer, tele-matic or telecommunications means managed to attract the victims,” the court filing says.
