The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is looking into Long Island Iced Tea’s (LTEA) shift to blockchain for evidence of insider trading and securities fraud. They are now requesting access to Whatsapp messages that may prove it.
According to a search warrant request, revealed by business news outlet Quartz on July 25, the FBI is seeking to expand a warrant from a different case in order to gain access to communications for their investigation into the former iced tea company. These communications allegedly include evidence that LTEA was involved in a possible trading scam.
