CICPC and Sunacrip warn of digital fraud

Both institutions made a call to the Venezuelan population about the existence of scammers and the need to avoid sharing their personal data with other people

The Computer Crimes Division of the Scientific Criminal and Criminal Investigations Corps (CICPC in Spanish) and the National Superintendency of Crypto Assets and Related Activities (Sunacrip) issued a warning to Venezuelan citizens to avoid being victims of fraud with digital currencies.

The CICPC division, through its account on the social network Instagram, warned about the existence of “false managers who only seek their own profit on the Patria platform and other electronic channels.” They completed the information with a series of recommendations to increase security.

Venezuelan institutions urged all Venezuelans not to share their personal data and to allow other people to carry out financial transactions with them. “We invite all those who handle crypto assets to make their movements through exchange houses authorized by Sunacrip.”

The exhortation of both institutions is framed within the policies that the State has been implementing to normalize economic activities related to cryptocurrencies, petro and digital mining.

Actions against organized criminals

Joselit Ramírez, Sunacrip National Superintendent, recently announced the signing of an agreement with the National Office Against Organized Crime and Terrorism Financing (Oncdoft) that aims to prevent the “misuse of digital platforms for illicit purposes”, and thus “strengthen the fight against organized crime and money laundering.”

On the other hand, Sunacrip is developing events throughout the national territory in order to promote proximity between the nation’s security forces and other institutions to to facilitate the coordination of actions on digital mining in the country.
