These individuals are alleged to have carried out their plans by creating a fictitious organization called Federal Crypto Reserve and convincing victims to make payments to Federal Crypto Reserve with the promise of higher profits. Saffron is said to have used various aliases to conceal his identity while soliciting money from victims.

The indictment also alleges that Saffron and Mazzotta conspired to obstruct justice, conceal assets, destroy evidence, and tamper with records. They are accused of using various methods to prevent the tracking of their cryptocurrency transactions.

The suspects, who are being prosecuted for fraud, money laundering, and obstruction of justice, could face up to 20 years in prison for each count of fraud and money laundering. Saffron, facing serious charges, could be facing a consecutive 10-year prison sentence. This case highlights the fight against fraudulent activities in the cryptocurrency space.
