United States Department of Justice Created a new site For victims of alleged fraud perpetrated by Sam Bankman-Fried, Decrypt report. Due to the sheer number of people defrauded, it was called impractical by the plaintiffs to have to contact FTX’s customers one by one in order to set up a website.
The site does not contain any forms to fill out, instead, it has contact information for the US Attorney’s Office so you can email them if you have been scammed and checks will be run to see if you are eligible to be classified as a victim in the case.
Customers who had assets stored in FTX when it closed the withdrawals are still awaiting the process to access what they have. Bahamian authorities said late last year that they had pledged $3.5 billion of FTX’s assets that they plan to return to customers and creditors, but that’s not all the money FTX was responsible for and some still needs to be found.
If you have been affected by the FTX collapse, it would be a good idea to contact the email address on the DOJ website, even if you are outside the United States. This will ensure that your name is put forward to recover all assets owed to you when the time comes to distribute what has been recovered.
