According to the victim, on September 27, unidentified persons pulled him out of the car, put on a mask, tied him up and held him for 24 hours in an unknown place. The thieves forced the iPhone to unlock, received two-factor authentication codes on Binance, and transferred the funds to their wallets.
In total, the attackers stole about $ 523,000 in USDT. According to the victim, these were almost all of his savings.
On the second night of detention, the victim was strangled and then “thrown out in the forest without clothes, hiding under a pile of branches.”
“Fortunately, since the kidnappers injected me with sedatives randomly, they could not check my heartbeat and thought I was dead,” the victim said.
He survived, got to the nearest village, where he received medical attention. The victim went to the police.
Exchange representatives reacted to the post on Twitter, expressing their willingness to help.
Extremely sorry to read this story. We’ve sent you a DM to see how we can help.

The victim told crypto-daily.news that he was not yet able to comment on the situation, as this could interfere with the investigation.
Recall that in June, a Moscow court found the attackers guilty of planning an assassination attempt on a businessman in an attempt to take possession of his cryptocurrency.
