Woman Sentenced for Laundering Proceeds from Fraud Scheme

Wen Jian, a Chinese woman, has been sentenced to six years and eight months in prison for laundering proceeds from a multi-billion dollar fraud scheme. She was involved in converting Bitcoin into cash and property in an effort to hide the sources of money stolen from around 130,000 investors in a $6.4 billion wealth scheme in China between 2014 and 2017.

Ignorance vs. Awareness

Wen claimed ignorance of the money’s illicit origins, but prosecutors argued that she should have known it was illegally obtained. Despite not being directly involved in the actual fraud, Judge Sally-Ann Hales confirmed Wen’s awareness of dealing with criminal property.

One of the Largest Cryptocurrency Seizures

In 2021, British police seized wallets containing over 61,000 BTC during the investigation. At the time, the Bitcoin was valued at $1.8 billion, but it is now worth approximately $4.2 billion at current prices. This case marks one of the largest cryptocurrency seizures by law enforcement globally.
