Thus, he was able to collect 3 billion 42 million 302 thousand soums in short period of time. In order to legalize these funds, he initially created a limited liability company and transferred 402 million 472 thousand soums as "financial assistance" to the organization. The LLC purchased 8 Nexia cars.

Using the funds accumulated in the company, he purchased various real estate properties for himself, i.e. various empty buildings, sand quarries.

During the investigation, it was revealed that about 350 people gave money to this fraudster. Criminal case has been initiated against B. Kh. on charges of fraud, possession of a large number of currency valuables, infringement of the rules of illegal entrepreneurship, trade or service, unlawful activity and legalization of proceeds from crime. Court penalized him in accordance with the established legislation, the report said.
