US hacker stole cryptocurrency, scammed influencers and avoided the feds — until he crossed his partners


Milleson was charged with hacking two unidentified prominent social media accounts in September 2017, which each had 'hundreds of thousands of followers,' his plea agreement says. —Relaxnews

In the summer of 2019, the father of 20-year-old Jordan K. Milleson got a phone call. The person on the other line told him that his son was a hacker named “Chikri” who had stolen US$20,000 (RM83,150) from the caller.

Soon after, someone called Baltimore County Police and said he’d shot someone at the Milleson home, and that he was armed and would shoot police if confronted.
