A Michigan-based tech hub was reportedly raided by U.S. law enforcement, allegedly investigating unauthorized crypto trading.
As Wood-TV reported, Chris Boden, the founder of The Geek Group, made a live public statement on YouTube Saturday night, which has evidently since been deleted. Boden reportedly claimed the office of his tech-oriented, non-profit organization had been raided by members of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Dec. 21, elaborating that computers and other equipment were taken from his the office.
Wood-TV reported that Boden had stated he was “commercially trading in crypto-currency [sic] without the proper authorization.”
The founder also reportedly believes he is facing federal prison time and up to $100,000 in legal expenses.
“On the advice of legal council I will not comment further on the Government’s ongoing investigation.”
