There has been a lot of talk about Bitcoin and deep web marketplaces as of late, which has lead to the creation of The State Police Suspicious Activity Review team in New York. This team was formally recognized for tracing bank deposits back to the deep web, even though funds was converted to Bitcoin in the process.
NY State Police Tracks Bitcoin On Deep Web
It is the first time a physical award is issued for busting criminals on the deep web. The New York State Police Suspicious Activity Review Team, together with the local Financial Crimes Unit, both received this award during an event at the US Department of the Treasury last week.
According to the information we have received, the Suspicious Activity Review Team noticed one person make over 20 bank deposits in small amounts. While this is not particularly suspicious in its own right, the total amount of funds added up to US$170,000. Which raised some red flags with the State Police.
