Infamous computer programmer/cyber-security expert, John Mcafee has been arrested by the Feds on multiple fraud charges. Mcafee has been held in federal custody since October of last year. He’s currently being housed at a jail in Spain, and is expected to be extradited to the United States to face tax evasion charges here. Mcafee has allegedly not filed a tax return in several years.
Online news site, Ethnika reported, that in late 2017 and early 2018, Mcafee urged his hundreds of thousands of Twitter followers to invest in a number of obscure Cryptocurrencies. Federal prosecutors say Mcafee failed to disclose his own financial stake in the Cryptocurrencies, and in some cases, outright lied about it. Mcafee’s bodyguard, Jimmy Watson, has also been charged in the case. He allegedly helped Mcafee to carry out some of his pump and dump schemes. The Securities and Exchange Commission has also filed a civil suit against Mcafee and friends.
