On the heels of two enforcement actions announced in the first weeks of January, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission announced fraud charges against yet another company operating in the virtual currency space. The enforcement action alleges that Las Vegas-based My Big Coin Pay Inc., a virtual currency wallet and platform, misappropriated more than $6 million from its customers for “personal expenses and the purchase of luxury goods,” including a home, jewelry and fine art. “As a result, MBC customers have lost most, if not all, of their funds due to defendants’ fraud and misappropriation,” the commission’s Jan. 16 complaint filed in Massachusetts federal court reads. The complaint was shared publicly by the CFTC after a period of being under seal.
