Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are increasingly being used to purchase goods and services, but some have seen the government take action to stop it.
The government in March issued a list of some of the most popular cryptocurrencies, and it includes the Bitcoin.
This list, along with a handful of other cryptocurrencies, was used to seize funds from a US-based firm in a money laundering case.
Now the US government is taking steps to ensure that its citizens are safe from the same kind of theft.
The list was issued in response to a criminal complaint against a Nevada-based financial services manager, and the US Attorney’s Office said it is looking into whether the cryptocurrency is used for illicit purposes.
It is unclear what kind of funds were seized in the case.
The criminal complaint alleges that Finkler Financial Management, based in Las Vegas, used a bitcoin mining service to buy and sell $30 million worth of cryptocurrency between May 2014 and December 2015.
Finklers staff had made transactions through a bitcoin-mining service called Bitfinex and had paid out some of that money in bitcoin.
Bitfinexes service was designed to take a small portion of a bitcoin and convert it to fiat currencies, and Finkers bitcoin mining operation was used as a platform for this.
But according to the complaint, Bitfinexs mining operation also provided financial services to Finklestock, which was then paying for Finkles services.
In the complaint filed by the US attorney’s office, Finkling is accused of violating the Financial Services Modernization Act (FSMA) by purchasing bitcoin from Bitfinext and then reselling that bitcoin to customers.
The FSFM said in a statement that it does not engage in the use of digital currencies for financial transactions.
It said it had no knowledge of the alleged theft and that the company “did not engage” in the illegal transactions.
However, it said that Finks customers may have been involved in transactions that involved illegal transfers of money to other people, and that “there is no evidence to show that this conduct occurred.”
Finkering’s CEO, Paul Nettles, told Bloomberg that the cryptocurrency was not used for any nefarious activity.
The company also said that it would not use any cryptocurrency for any purpose other than its business.
Nettes said he would not have known that Finky was involved in a bitcoin scheme had it not been for Finks bitcoin mining services.
“I never even heard of Bitcoin.
I’ve never heard of it.
I never used it, never owned a Bitcoin,” he said.
Nettleles added that the FSF is investigating whether other financial services providers may have used bitcoin mining for their services.
Finks services are based in Nevada, and some of its customers are from the US.
“We will do everything we can to protect our customers and to make sure they don’t have to suffer the same type of fate,” Nettas statement read.
“Finklestocks is a small company, but we’re committed to doing our best to make the best possible business case to protect its customers.
We will work closely with our partners to ensure they can continue to make good use of our services.”
