ZachXBT, the pseudonymous crypto detective, has unveiled a nefarious web of SIM swap attacks orchestrated by the Canadian scammer, Yahya. Yahya’s role in this elaborate scheme involved searching for potential victims on platforms like X/Twitter, using his control panel. He profited from each successful attack, collaborating with other scammers, including one with ties to the FBI. Their deceitful act inadvertently exposed Yahya’s wallet address, leading ZachXBT to link it to multiple SIM swap attacks.
Notable victims of these attacks included prominent figures like Bitboy Crypto, Slingshot, and PleasrDAO core team member Jamis. Yahya used the stolen funds for extravagant purchases, showing little remorse for his actions.
