The self-described Crypto King witnessed 140 requests from his clients as he invested. The 23 year-old tycoon is the owner of AP Private Equity Limited. His investors want a part of his firm’s total of $35 million.
The CBC report stated that the creditors claimed they gave their funds to Aiden Pleterski. Their goal was to invest in crypto and foreign currency on their behalf. Therefore, they had to find where Crypto King placed their entire money.

Pleterskis’ Luxury Lifestyle Uncovered by Investigative Research
Pleterski owned 11 cars and had four luxury vehicles leased. Pleterski also rented a luxury lakefront home for $45,000 per monthly. Additionally, he often uses private jets to travel around the country without any stress.
Norman Groot (founder of Investigation Counsel PC) and fraud recovery lawyer company, Norman Groot, responded to the discovery. He noted that Pleterski’s extravagant lifestyle does not provide the exact cumulative amount of missing money.
Groot stated that investors were alerted to massive yields and could have been a warning sign. He highlighted that the 5% weekly interest doesn’t exist in an open market.

Pleterski has taken possession of assets totaling approximately $2 million. The assets include a Lamborghini as well two BMWs and two McLarens.
Pleterski had his assets and bank accounts frozen after a first lawsuit was filed against him. This has been lifted by the bankruptcy proceedings. The investors have an option to choose from for their recovery. Because bankruptcy proceedings can be more effective than civil lawsuits.
