Australian residents have been identified as the primary targets of a sophisticated network of cryptocurrency call-center scammers — suspected to be run by Israel-based crime bosses.

Evidence uncovered after a full-scale raid of four Serbian call centers and 11 residences by Serbian, German, Bulgarian and Cypriot authorities found that Australians were among the top countries being targeted. The news came from a Feb. 23 report by The Australian.
