CFTC Hits Wall Trying To Serve Bitcoin Fraud Summons

 Thursday, March 22, 2018


The Commodity Futures Trading Commission is having trouble serving a court summons to a binary options trader charged in January with stealing more than $1 million in bitcoin.
The U.S. commodities regulator claimed in a court filing Tuesday that Dillon Michael Dean is avoiding their attempts to present him with the summons. The CFTC is now asking the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of New York to give it permission to use email or an alternative method to serve Dean with the complaint, alleging that existing methods are proving difficult to perform.
