Crypto ‘prodigy’, 23, is kidnapped and tortured after ‘swindling’ investors out of $29 million before spending $12 million on a fleet of supercars, luxury vacations and a private jet
One of the few calls he was allowed to make was to his landlord, who testified that Pleterski called and begged him for the millions in ransom money. “I said, ‘There’s absolutely nothing I can do.'” No suspects in the kidnapping have been revealed and it’s not clear if any arrests have been made. Rob Stelzer, the trustee assigned to prepare the report, told CTV he received a call from Toronto police about the kidnapping in early December. “I mean, obviously he owes a lot of people a lot of money,” Stelzer said.
