Over 1,000 bank accounts and cards used in crypto trading seized by Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency

Authorities said that the frozen accounts were used to process transactions worth 51 million rupees (around $288,000) to and from crypto exchanges including Binance, Coinbase, and Coinmama.

Pakistani authorities have frozen more than 1,000 accounts and credit cards that were used in crypto trading. The move is part of the government’s efforts at curbing the sale and purchase of digital currencies, which are prohibited activities in the country.

Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has frozen the bank accounts under the names of 1,064 individuals, Bitcoin.com reported. The frozen accounts were reportedly used in crypto trading activities.

The FIA took action upon the request of the Cyber Crime Reporting Center (CCRC) in Islamabad. Authorities said that the frozen accounts were used to process transactions worth 51 million rupees (around $288,000) to and from crypto exchanges including Binance, Coinbase, and Coinmama.

Aside from freezing the accounts of 1,064 individuals, the FIA also blocked their credit cards, which were used to buy and sell crypto. Citizens were reminded that the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) prohibited the purchase and sale of cryptocurrencies with a circular issued in April 2018 by its Banking Policy and Regulation Department.

But the ban did little to stop the increasing popularity of cryptos such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) among Pakistani investors. In a report published by the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI), Pakistani investors own around $20 billion worth of crypto assets.

The estimated valuation of the total crypto owned by Pakistani investors was based on research by the association’s Policy Advisory Board, according to FPCCI President Nasir Hayat Magoon at a conference. However, it is highly likely that the actual value could be much higher as many investors in the country buy crypto via peer-to-peer platforms to avoid detection.

Due to the crypto trading prohibition, Magoon said people have to travel to other cities such as Dubai to cash their crypto, according to Daily Pakistan. He urged the government to introduce a policy to regulate and facilitate crypto-related transactions. The FPCCI recommends the adoption of a legal framework aligned with FATF and IMF-issued guidelines.

I’m Joseph from New Jersey, United States. I lost my job a few months back after my divorce with my wife. I tried everything positive to make sure I took good care of my kids but all failed, and I was in debt which makes everything worse. I was kicked out of my home and i had to live with my neighbor after pleading with her to allow me to stay with her for some days while I figured out how to get a home which she agreed to, but no one was willing to help anymore. I bumped into this page from google and I was excited about this, then I contacted the hackers Bill Dean. I had just $200, so I pleaded with them to help me because of my condition but they never accepted. I believed in this, so I managed to pawn a few things and got $500. I ordered the $10,000 card and I got my card delivered to me by Ups 4 days later. I never believed my eyes! I was excited and upset as well, I managed to withdraw $2000 on the ATM and $2500 the second day. I went to Walmart and a grocery store and bought a couple of things for $3000. The card got blocked the third day and I contacted them and I was told it's a mistake from my end. I’m so happy, I have started all over again and have a good apartment with my kids you can contact him through is via email ([email protected])
