Muscovite robbed of $250,000 trying to purchase bitcoins

ZUMA Press/Global Look Press
Buying bitcoins can be rather dangerous sometimes.

A purchaser of bitcoins was robbed in Moscow on November 16. During the deal in an office in the center of the Russian capital, eight men entered the room, called the buyer a "fraud," took his money — 15,000,000 rubles ($250,000), and left. Police have started an investigation.

One bitcoin is currently worth $7,700-7,800.
