According to KHL reporter Aivis Kalnins, Pittsburgh Penguins Evgeni Malkin is facing some jail time in Russia after one of his business partners scammed millions out of investors and Malkin himself.
According to the report, Malkin could face some jail time since his signature is on some of the documents involving the scam.
Apparently, Malkin has been involved in some crypto-currency scheme and there are some very serious legal issues, Kalnins stated. In documents that have been leaked, he’s shown as an “American investor” which has now fuelled all sorts of speculation.
Kalnins believes Malkin lost at least $4,000,000 and others have lost up to $10,000,000.
Malkin is one of the co-founders of a project called “http://Mark.Space” in which he invested roughly around $4,000,000.
From online searches, MarkSpace is the world’s first open-platform VR and AR system.
Malkin was reportedly not involved in the day-to-day action of the company and wasn’t told of the scam that was being done. But his signature was on some documents that could make him face jail time.
According to a lawyer, Malkin has never visited their office and all of the important decisions were made by two other people.
