Eurojust assists with halting online investment scam in Italy

Eurojust has assisted the Italian authorities in halting an online investment scam used to launder money for an estimated amount of EUR 9.6 million. The swindle also defrauded more than 100 Italian victims for a total of at least EUR 1.3 million via a website, operating through a market-listed German investment company registered in Cyprus. Authorities in Italy presume the fraud included many more victims in other European countries.
