Plexcoin, Stripe Cryptocurrency Scheme Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating Stripe Inc. over allegations that it has put consumers at risk by failing to adequately assess risk and prevent, or subsequently mitigate fraud. Specifically, consumers have reported a pattern of unregulated and fraudulent dealings associated with cryptocurrency fraud sanctioned by Stripe’s lack of oversight, causing financial harm to individuals and businesses.

Recently, Stripe settled with consumers in Massachusetts after having allowed fraudulent third party “PlexCoin” to use their platform to trade unregistered cryptocurrency. Investors in this case reported having lost substantial investments through PlexCoin’s scheme which should have been flagged by Stripe. Under the settlement, Stripe will pay $120,000 to resolve allegations by the Massachusetts Attorney General that Stripe violated state consumer protection laws.
