AURORA, Colo. -- It’s a common work-from-home scam that has duped many, but this time it has a cryptocurrency twist.
A couple in Aurora who did not wish to be identified, shared their story with Denver7 about being tricked into laundering thousands of dollars, in order to keep others from falling for the scam as well. We've changed their names and disguised their identities to protect them.
"It all fell apart so quickly," said John, who along with Marie, ignored the red flags all around them. "We don't want to go to jail. We laundered money and we stole money from people, that's what it could look like to someone."
