From Cashier to Mortgage Billionaire: The Rise of Anthony Hsieh

Associated Press

Global sting began by creating message service for crooks

When the FBI dismantled an encrypted messaging service based in Canada in 2018, agents noticed users moving to other networks. ANOM, a secure-messaging service built by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, launched in October 2019 and solidified its following after authorities took down another rival. When ANOM was taken down Monday, authorities had collected more than 27 million messages from about 12,000 devices in 45 languages — a vast body of evidence that fueled a global sting operation.
