Officers from the Ministry of Public Security on Wednesday said around 3,000 accounts were associated with the ring.

In late October, police summoned 17 people for their involvement in the outfit.

Ringleader Do Ngoc Ha had cooperated with Bui Hoang Son to host online Baccarat games in December 2020, creating a website to connect to the gambling house Evolution that operates on a server overseas, while utilizing digital currency USDT for transactions.

Ha launched the website on January 4.

They later recruited other members and gamblers via social media and operated events under the guise of calling for financial investment.

During the investigation, police seized cars, motorbikes, tablets, mobile phones, cash and gold, among other items.
