Recently, police in the city of Hamilton in Ontario, Canada, reported the largest cryptocurrency theft in Canadian history.

The scammer turned out to be a teenager who, using the technology of replacing the SIM-card, stole $ 36,5 million in cryptocurrency. During the operation of replacing the SIM card, the fraudster gains access to the phone number of the wireless user in order to intercept the two-factor authentication requests and gain access to the victim's accounts, writes Bloomberg.

The teenager forged account data and took possession of other people's digital assets.

Law enforcers were investigating the case along with the FBI and the US Secret Service's Electronic Crimes Task Force. The accused was not named in accordance with Canadian law prohibiting the public identification of suspects under the age of eighteen. The victim is alleged to be a US citizen and has not been officially identified, writes Screen Rant.

When the fraudster was arrested, he had only $ 5,5 million left in his account. He was accused of stealing money on an especially large scale and owning property or proceeds from crime. Now the Canadian court is deciding what measure of restraint to choose for the teenager.
