How did the criminal scheme work?

According to delegate Daniel Castro, from the Metropolitan Police Directorate (DPM) at the Pará Civil Police, influencers used social media to promote gambling.

“Those investigated took advantage of their status as digital influencers, taking advantage of the capillarity they have to transform their life from ostentation into profit, they promoted it through a platform known as Tigrinho, they played online games that the banks always won”, he explains.

Police chief Walter Rezende said that one of the victims lost more than R$15,000 betting on the game.

“She won a round but, when it was time to receive it, the platform blocked the victim, meaning she could not withdraw the prize or recover the amount invested.”

The 12 digital influencers are being investigated for embezzlement, criminal association, money laundering and crime against consumers in Pará.
