The American-Israeli teenager who got popular for making bomb threats for a living was sent to prison for ten years after making a fortune in bitcoin, according to the latest crypto news coming in from Tel Aviv.
According to the court in Tel Aviv, 19-year old Michael Kadar is responsible for about 2,000 bomb hoaxes over the period of three years. The nickname JCC comes as his prime targets were Jewish Community Centers. Other targets included police stations, hospitals, airlines, and schools.
For making a bomb threat to commercial airlines, Kadar charged $500, for private residences $40 and for school bomb threats he charged $80.
Kadar offered his services on the dark web and he was paid in bitcoin where he managed to accumulate over $0.8 million in bitcoin. According to Israeli media reports, some of the bomb threats were done after students wanted to postpone the exams. The hoaxes generated panic and mass evacuations.
Also, bomb threats directed towards commercial airlines resulted into forced landing for the planes and generated terror and fear among the passengers. Some of the passengers were even injured while evacuating the plane.
Kadar didn’t only impact Israel. His services were wanted in the United States, Germany, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, UK, Belgium, and Norway.
The 19-year old boy made the bomb threats from his parent’s home in Ashkelon while using sophisticated software that altered his voice and changed his location. The Israeli Police joined forces with the US Federal Bureau of Investigation so they can catch the hoaxer.
