Back in February Russian authorities arrested Pavel Krymov at the behest of Kazakh authorities.
Following a hearing earlier this week, it has been confirmed Krymov will be extradited to Kazakhstan.
Krymov (right) is believed to be wanted on several fraud charges in Kazakhstan, with details of the investigation revealing Krymov’s investigation began mid 2017.
Over 15 years of criminal activity, the fraudster has created more than 40 scams, which led to massive investigations around the world.
In the summer of 2017, several criminal cases were initiated against Krymov under Article 190 part 4 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
Part of the reason Krymov, a Ukranian national, has been able to get away with scamming people for so long is regulation is virtually non-existent in Russia and the Ukraine.
He’s also accused of bribing officials when previous scams have collapsed before fleeing.
Even with his history, it was only when Kazakh authorities wanted Krymov arrested that their Russian counterparts took action.
Krymov is next due in court on March 17th, after which he will be deported.
If convicted in Kazakhstan, Krymov’s rap sheet sees him facing up to 7 years in prison.
