Russian actor lost ~$260,000 in fraudulent Bitcoin investments


Actor Artem Tkachenko became a victim of a cryptocurrency scam and lost almost $200,000 and 6 million rubles. This was reported by the Baza Telegram channel.

Tkachenko met entrepreneur Grigory Muluzyan at the end of 2021 on the recommendation of his colleague Pavel Derevyanko, who also suffered from unsuccessful crypto investments.

Tkachenko deposited 7.5 BTC into the wallet and provided Muluzyan with access to it. At first, the actor consistently received 10% of his monthly income from trading.

Later, profits began to decline. While filming in Yalta, Tkachenko tried to log into his account, but it was blocked along with 10 BTC in the account. Muluzyan explained this by the restriction regarding users located in Crimea. At the same time, for 0.5 BTC he promised to help with unfreezing the balance.

In the summer of 2022, Tkachenko and Derevianko accepted Muluzyan’s offer to purchase shares in his crypto business for $150,000. When the price of Bitcoin began to decline sharply in the fall, the entrepreneur advised Tkachenko to sell the coins. However, he saw no more money or business.

The actor has now filed a police report.

Let us recall that at the end of August it became known that due to unsuccessful investments in the crypto business, more than 45 million rubles were demanded from Pavel Derevianko in two lawsuits.
