Law enforcement officers detained a former participant of the reality show Dom-2 Pavel Ulomsky on suspicion of fraud in the course of a deal to sell bitcoin.
According to media reports , in November last year, Ulomsky agreed to sell the cryptocurrency to a resident of Naberezhnye Chelny. The latter paid 254,000 USD, but never received bitcoins, and Ulomsky stopped communicating with him.
A criminal case was initiated on large-scale fraud. The suspect was detained in Moscow and taken to Naberezhnye Chelny.
According to the lawyer, he fully admitted guilt and is under house arrest.
Recall that in February, Moscow law enforcement officers opened a criminal case on the theft of almost 15 million USD from a financier during a deal to buy bitcoin.
