William Bigode Reports Loss of BRL 17 Million in Cryptocurrency Scam

Fluminense striker William Bigode and his company WLJC Consultoria have released a note about the cryptocurrency scam by Brazil’s Xland Holding, a company based in Brasília (DF).

According to an investigation that surfaced this Friday (10), Gustavo Scarpa and Mayke, who were his teammates at Palmeiras, are suing him in São Paulo after falling victim to a scam involving cryptocurrencies.

In court, both allege that William introduced them to the scheme, causing them to lose more than R$11 million added to the promised income. Since they have not been able to recover any values ​​since 2022, the players have summoned the former colleague to court and are even asking for their funds to be blocked.

What does William Bigode say about the cryptocurrency scam?

In a note from this Friday, which Livecoins had access to, Willian Gomes de Siqueira, “Bigode”, reports that he also feels victimized by Xland. The player is famous in Brazil and played for Cruzeiro, Corinthians, Palmeiras and other clubs.

According to the player, champion of the Guanabara Cup with Fluminense over Flamengo in recent days, he had a loss of 17 million reais, adding the income to the amount invested.

However, as of November 2022, William has not been able to receive any amount from the company. The player reports that he got to know the company through Pastor Marçal Siqueira, a person with extremely high self-confidence.

He met the business partners and their lawyers, Gabriel Nascimento (COO) and Jean Ribeiro (CEO), who introduced Xland and gave him confidence.

Thinking he had made a good investment in the cryptocurrency market, William reports presenting the company to Scarpa. Finally, the Fluminense striker reported that both Gustavo and Mayke, the latter still with Palmeiras, invested directly in Xland, without any cooperation from Bigode in the process.

What is Xland Holding?

Headquartered in Brasilia, according to CNPJ 34.254.469/0001-79, Xland Holding presents itself as an intelligence company in the “Lease of Cryptoassets”.

This same area of ​​activity has already been the target of recent federal police operations, be it Rental Coins (Operation Poyas) or Braiscompany (Operation Halving).

“Xland Holding is a company that aims to be transformative and provide its clients with a cryptocurrency leasing service with security and results.”

In the year 2022, the company suspected of harming several football players offered an average profitability of 3.39% in the market. However, a few months ago it suspended current transfers and defaults on contracts.

It is unclear how many customers have invested with Xland and how much the company has withheld from investors. In any case, the company is publicly saying that it has halted withdrawals due to the collapse of cryptocurrency exchange FTX.

Despite the repercussions of the injured players, the company has not yet publicly manifested itself.
