Bensaci was part of a ring of fraudsters that successfully stole the digital assets in question by hacking mobile phones belonging to crypto holders both in Canada and in America. Bensaci is 18 years old and a resident of Montreal.

Speaking on the crime, Canadian police spokesman Lieutenant Hugo Fournier said that Bensaci’s ring is responsible for stealing “$50 million from our neighbours to the south and $300,000 in Canada.”

Last year, an American student was sentenced to 10 years in prison for a similar crime.
