Australian citizen Katherine Nguyen admitted that he had stolen more than 100,000 XRPs in January 2018, worth $450,000. Nguyen invaded an email account with a man with the same last name. Then she began stealing all his XRP and opened his account two days later. According to reports, the police had conducted a 10-month investigation into the theft before finding and arresting her. Nguyen later pleaded guilty to theft and faced imprisonment. A special hearing will be held in October this year to resolve some factual disputes and decide on her decision.
