While many crypto fraudsters have previously slipped through the cracks, FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried is not one of them (SBF). Parallel to the ongoing investigation into FTX frauds, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) is reportedly investigating a potential fraud involving SBF syphoning funds offshore just days before FTX declared bankruptcy. The federal investigation will look into SBF's role in improperly transferring FTX funds to the Bahamas, after the defunct cryptocurrency exchange filed for bankruptcy on November 11.
The Bahamian attorneys requested access to FTX's customer database in an emergency motion filed with a Delaware bankruptcy judge to aid their ongoing investigations. The motion emphasised previous failed attempts to access the database of the now-defunct crypto exchange. The Block, a media outlet that failed to disclose funding from Alameda Research, became the latest victim of FTX fraud. Mike McCaffrey, CEO of The Block, resigned after failing to disclose $27 million in loans from FTX's sister company Alameda Research.
Kevin O'Leary of "Shark Tank" claimed that FTX paid him $15 million to be the company's spokesman, but he lost nearly all of it when the crypto exchange went bankrupt.

He had $1 million in FTX equity, which is also now worthless. O'Leary stated that the remaining $4 million from the transaction went to taxes and agent fees.
