A former associate of the suspected fraudster Renwick Haddow has been warned to expect a jail term for illegally shifting funds earmarked for investors who lost millions in scams.

Robert McKendrick was ordered to pay more than £14m by a British court last year for his role in projects including an African farming scam after a flashy promotional campaign that duped more than 2,500 investors.

I wonder how can people fall to this guy scam. According to the news, he is famous or known to run many fail projects previously, and interestingly most investors came from Africa/Middle East. Seems like the promise of high return makes people forgot to do their due diligence. And sadly his scams were using Bitcoin (mostly) as an investment. Let's hope this will prevent further scam and educate people.

People like him are the reasons why there are less people coming back into the market. Once they get burned they won't return, they will go back to the stock exchange instead. We need that ETF and bakkt for safe trading

Nah. People need to burn themselves once or twice to get their sense back, so it's a great thing overall.

2017's bull market made people consider everything a good investment, because everything was going up and paying out for quite a long period of time, even the most ridiculous looking scams. People become more aware of what this space is about, will look for better exchanges to use, and will eventually stick with just holding or trading the more established coins.

Regulated platforms will attract smart people. Unregulated platforms attract stupid people. Considering that there are more stupid people in this space than smart people, they will continue to get scammed, lose money, etc.
