About us will know everything
In recent months, ICO has become the main focus for regulatory repression. Naturally, the people who run such a business are cautious in attracting too much attention. But not Centra Tech!
CENTRA TECH STRONGLY EXAGGERATED ITS LINKS, BUT, AS THE PROSECUTOR NOTES, IT ALSO FALSIFIED MANAGERIAL RECORDS
“Michael Edwards” acted as the chief executive director and co-founder of Centra. Edward’s LinkedIn profile stated that he holds an MBA from Harvard University and a long career in banking […] “Jessica Robinson” was listed as the CFO who allegedly recently worked as CFO at Johnson Communications for almost five years. As a result, it’s okay that neither Edwards nor Robinson are real people.
ICO was the focus of skepticism on cryptocurrency forums and in the press, and Centra Tech was sued by the first investor in mid-December. Yesterday, trying to get on the plane to leave the country, Farkash was arrested.
