Apostolos Trovias was recently arrested in Peru and charged by the SEC with perpetrating a fraudulent scheme to sell what he called "insider trading tips" on the Dark Web.
According to the complaint, Trovias, using the online avatar "TheBull" engaged in a deceptive scheme to sell "insider trading tips" on Dark Web marketplaces like Alpha Bay. The Bull claimed that the information he was selling consisted of order-book data from a securities trading firm that was provided to him by an employee of that firm. The complaint states that he acknowledged that this information was “sensitive and more importantly illegal to use or share”.
