Sam Bankman-Fried Denies Participation in “Wirefraud” Group Chat

The chat was reportedly created on messaging app Signal and was used to “send secret information about operations in the lead-up to” FTX’s collapse.

However, Bankman-Fried denied the claims on Twitter. The former FTX CEO stated that he “wasn't a member.” On top of that, the man added that he is “quite sure it's just false” information because he had “never heard of such a group.”

In a recent month, Sam Bankaman-Fried was under fire from the press, various institutions and authorities. The whole bouquet of charges and investigations were launched against FTX and its former CEO, which led to Bankamn-Fried’s arrest on December 12th.

The arrest comes just a day before Sam Bankman-Fried was supposed to appear before the US Congress and explain what happened with FTX. The other week, the former FTX CEO received a public invitation to testify in the hearing before the US Congress from a US representative and the House Financial Services Committee Chair, Maxine Waters.

Although Bankman-Fried did not show much interest in testifying, Waters remained persistent and claimed that if necessary, Congress plans to issue a subpoena to make Bankman-Fried appear before the US Congress. However, when SBF finally agreed to appear before the US Congress, Bahamian authorities slammed the doors for Bankamn-Fried’s appearance by arresting him.
