Federal prosecutors and the SEC earlier this week charged seven Influencers with using Twitter, Discord and YouTube to commit securities fraud that netted them more than $100 million.
An eighth influencer was charged with aiding and abetting the alleged scheme in the SEC’s civil complaint and with conspiracy to commit securities fraud in the Department of Justice’s criminal case.
Each of the defendants had well over 100,000 Twitter followers as of this month, they ran a podcast called “Pennies: Going In Raw” and a YouTube channel called “Goblin Gang”.
