Andreas Kaltenhuber, director and owner of PushPanda, an Austrian IT company, was exposed as the founder of an international criminal group of cryptocurrency scammers.
The exposure was possible due to the social network Facebook, where scammers created a page for their project - a cryptocurrency trading platform. Using internal Facebook algorithms, the owners of this trading platform were identified. The investigation was conducted by one of the investors under the nickname tax79. As an expert in tracking blockchain transactions and in Open-source intelligence (OSINT), tax79 was able to determine with 100% accuracy that it was the founders of the Trading platform who stole users' funds. Plus, it was proved that Andreas Kaltenhuber and his wife Carina Fontan were the real founders of the Trading platform.
A brief summary:
In May 2018, in the wake of the popularity of blockchain technology, Andreas Kaltenhuber and his wife Carina Fontan organized the project - a cryptocurrency trading platform MCT + (My Crypto Trade).
The Platform was growing and gaining popularity thus attracting more and more people.
People were buying the MCT coin which was used as an analog of shares - the MCT coin allowed to get part of the revenue of the Platform.
On 14 May 2019 there was a theft of users' funds from the Platform.
On 2 July 2019 the results of internal investigation were published and it became clear that the co-founder and the main developer of the Platform Andreas Kaltenhuber had stolen users' funds. Additionally it was found out that the initially raised investors' funds for the development of the Platform Andreas Kaltenhuber spent on the purchase of a new car and on a two-week vacation in Spain (Mallorca).
Within several hours after the publication the Platform was shut down, the website and the project’s social accounts were deleted.
Shortly after that, Andreas and his wife Carina went on vacation to Malta to spend the stolen funds.
Summing up the fraudsters activities, several thousand people around the world lost their funds on the Platform during the theft and exit scam. Several thousand investors holding MCT coins lost all their investments in the Project. Some investors lost significant amounts - several tens of thousands of euros each. The total damage from fraudulent activity can be estimated at many hundreds of thousands of euros.
In everyday life Andreas Kaltenhuber is an active member of society - he is a member of the SSCSC club, which annually organizes golf tournaments and the funds they raise go to charity.
His friends at the SSCSC club are Peter Paul Mölk, director and co-owner of the MPREIS distribution network, Christian Steinmayr and Michael Perlornigg, directors and co-owners of insurance company Steinmayr & Co, Adrian Egger, director at Patscherkofelbahn, Emanuel Jahn, director at Autohaus Dosenberger, Martin Wolf, a lawyer, and others.
Photos of Andreas Kaltenhuber and his friends can often be found in the local Tyrolian press.
