Led by John Valkocvi, supported by Jonathan Williams and Shannon Eastman, Operation Archangel will leverage our collective expertise, resources and forensics analysis of current victim cases, to work with LEAs in order to expedite the successful resolution of stolen digital assets.



Instances of crypto fraud and scams are increasing at an exponential rate.  


Many times victims of crypto fraud “fall between the cracks” because enforcement agencies lack the expertise and resources to navigate and investigate the world of cryptocurrencies.  


OA is specifically designed to provide concise, expert training, guidance, and resources to all levels of law enforcement to navigate and investigate the world of cryptocurrencies and work directly with victims.


Our team of world leading asset recovery professionals have more than 250 years of combined experience in investigating, prosecuting, and recovering assets and working with victims of fraud.

Operation Archangel is experienced by LEA inside an 8 week program through a combination of self directed learning 8 lessons x 15 minutes per lesson, a  select group of victims with forensic analysis complete, alongside hands-on support from the world’s most qualified and leading experts and practitioners available today.

What does it cost?

These 4-weeks are complementary to your LEA. It is our intention to engage your LEA officers in an interview pre, during and post these 4-weeks to gather intel we can use to upgrade and improve Operation Archangel in preparation for its second iteration.  


Research Interviews are expected to be 30-minutes in length and take place pre-during-post this operation. These interviews are video based and accompanied by a 6 question survey to complete at the end of the 4-weeks.  Interviews are conducted by John Valkovci and Shannon Eastman with one of your LE Agents at a time.
