Crypto investors being targeted in greater Vancouver

Cops have issued a public warning that "high-value" cryptocurrency investors are being targeted in home invasions. Multiple robberies of crypto investors in Richmond and Delta over the past year suggest the hand of organized criminals. Crooks gained access to the victim's home by posing as a delivery person or an authority figure. In some cases a B&E follows as the suspects target personal information that allows them to access the victims' cryptocurrency accounts. Cops are warning those involved in crypto to stay aware to avoid being the next.
