Qianjiang Evening News: Zhou was sentenced to four years and six months in prison for helping criminals buy bitcoin money laundering

According to the Qianjiang Evening News, the foreign trade practitioner Zhou helped the merchant "James" to collect the money, then bought the bitcoin, and then sent the bitcoin to the designated account, and each transaction received 5% of the reward. Zhou provided dozens of bank card collections, far exceeding the normal standard. And after Zhou’s bank card was frozen, he knew that it might be the police, but argued that after searching and consulting the bank, he did not doubt after asking James, but in his chat with James, the prosecutor found that Zhou once explicitly mentioned that the bank told him that the money in the account was fraudulent. On July 17, 2019, the People's Court of Licheng District made a judgment on the case. Zhou was sentenced to four years and six months in prison and fined RMB 100,000. The prosecutor said that in fact, Zhou’s role was to find the money laundering criminals in the fraud case.
