2,600 investors who put their money into the infamous ‘Russian treasure ship’ scam have collectively lost more than eight bln Won (about $8 mln). Korea Herald reports that these losses could be substantially bigger if more trading accounts will be found.
Back in July, a Seoul-based company Shinil Group reported about discovering the wreck of the Russian armored cruiser with $130 bln worth of gold bars and gold coins. Shortly after that, the company launched its own ICO, issuing a new token dubbed ‘Shinil Gold Coin.’ However, the whole coin offering turned out to be fake, and the CEO of the Korean salvage company is currently in hiding.
