Quadrigacx Co-Founder Michael Patryn Is Actually Convicted Fraudster Omar Dhanani

Dhanani allegedly operated a website called shadowcrew.com, now defunct, peddling 1.5 million stolen credit and bank card numbers, claims the article.

In 2007, he confessed to numerous unrelated crimes that include burglary, grand larceny and computer fraud.

More than 115,000 customers have been left out to dry in the wake of the saga, unsure whether they will ever recover their combined $190 million in cryptocurrency, until now believed to have been buried together with Cotten.

Patryn has previously denied he was Omar Dhanani, according to a Globe and Mail newspaper article published in February.
