BitBoy Crypto Referred to FBI After Failed Court Appearance
A popular crypto influencer is avoiding his court appearance related to an alleged harassment campaign he launched against a lawyer representing FTX investors. Crypto community influencer and Youtuber Ben “BitBoy” Armstrong has been referred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after refusing to appear for a court hearing surrounding his promotion of FTX.
Failed Court Appearance
Armstrong gloated about his decision to skip the Florida court session, posting a picture of himself online on a beach saying he “don’t give af.” BitBoy released his tweet on Thursday at 10 am ET – precisely when the hearing was scheduled to begin.
Plaintiff in Case
The plaintiff in the case is Adam Moskowitz, who serves as a lawyer representing plaintiffs in a lawsuit against multiple Youtubers that promoted failed cryptocurrency exchange FTX – one of which includes BitBoy. Other accused influencers included Kevin Paffrath, Brian Jung, Graham Stephan Tom Nash, and Erika Kullberg.
following the charges, Bitboy levied a torrent of angry messages toward Moskowitz over Twitter, sharing emails he sent to the lawyer calling him a “pussy” and a “bitch.“ Moskowitz contacted his former employer asking them if they would help pay for legal expenses associated with defending himself from Armstrong’s attacks but was denied assistance.
Moskowitz then filed suit against Armstrong claiming that he had orchestrated an online harassment campaign designed specifically to target and harass him both professionally and personally due to his involvement in litigation against another company supported by Armstrong – FTX Exchange. He also accused Armstrong of making false claims about him on social media platforms such as Twitter and Youtube with intent to damage his reputation or discredit him as well as encourage others within their shared circles into joining in on this harassing behaviour towards him .
Referral To FBI
As Armstrong refused to present himself at court for hearings related this case he has now been officially referred directly over for investigation by the FBI on account of possible criminal activity during these events .
