US Air Force cyber analyst was arrested for his alleged role in a “rug pull” scheme involving UndeadApes NFTs

The Art Newspaper:

The filing states that [he] withdrew $80,000 from his Coinbase account in April 2022. . . . Given that [his] Coinbase account was connected to his driver’s license, these transgressions were enough to establish a search warrant for his Google profile, which revealed a number of suspicious searches, like “does logs show on discord if they delete their account,” “what happens if a utility nfts rugs” and “wire fraud court martial”.

Discord logs allegedly show that [he] was bragging about the money he had extracted from the NFT group.
