A 15-year-old teenager in the U.S. is accused of hacking Michael Terpin’s cryptocurrency account, one of the leading names in the cryptocurrency world. Ellis Pinsky, who is claimed to be a member of a hacker group, is known for his luxurious life and dark aspects.
A hacker group, whose members operate in Europe and the United States, was alleged to have made $ 23.8 million profits by hacking blockchain investor Michael Terpin’s cryptocurrency account in January 2018. According to the charges, Ellis Pinsky, who was only 15 at the time, was at the center of the heist.
According to his neighbors and classmates, Ellis Pinsky was an ordinary 10th-grade student who played football, loves cool sneakers, and is successful in his lessons. Ellis lived in a $ 1.3 million house with his mother, a physicist at Langone Medical Center, New York University, and usually spent his time playing various games in his room.
The hacker group hacked victims and made millions of dollars of robberies
His friends saw Ellis as a cryptocurrency genius. His best friend thought he was making money by trading Bitcoin and stock. However, according to accusations, Ellis began hacking computers to access his victims’ crypto assets or private information at a young age, and among his victims was Michael Terpin, one of the leading names in the crypto world.
According to Terpin’s lawyer, Pierce O’Donnell, Ellis and his team were always looking for vulnerable vulnerabilities and using the SIM card replacement method to hack their victims. Some members of the team were circumventing their authentication by deceiving operators and moving victims’ numbers to a new SIM card. They then handed the information over to Ellis. Two team members were arrested last year and Terpin was entitled to a record compensation of $ 75.8 million for the robbery.
Michael Terpin’s money, whose phone was hacked, was cleared in 48 hours
In the lawsuit against Ellis, it is stated that Terpin has infiltrated his BlackBerry, accessed the cryptocurrency account and the money was laundered within 48 hours after making a $ 23.8 million profite.
According to sources, Ellis was a master in organizing and bullying. He would tell everyone what to do during the robberies. He was a very intelligent and control freak man. Others even argue that he threatened and threatened him and that he was very rich and threatened him.
O’Donnell and Terpin are waiting for a response from Ellis’ lawyer in the next 60 days. Terpin said, “It will be easier to sue him because he is young. We want the damage to be compensated and three times the amount stolen. They are crypto gangsters. I call Ellis ‘Baby Al Capone'”.
Apparently, Ellis still lives in his mother’s house in Irvington. “Look at Ellis’s life, there is actually no reason for him to do it. He’s a prominent boy with his dark side,” he said in a comment he knew. says.
