Earlier this month, the FBI arrested the CEO of Phantom Secure, a company allegedly providing encrypted phones to organized crime. Now, those in the secure device supply chain are trying to push criminals out.
Authorities have already arrested Vincent Ramos, Phantom Secure’s CEO. But the Department of Justice has indicted four other alleged Phantom associates, who are currently fugitives.
For years, the oft-overlooked secure phone industry, sometimes linked to organized crime, has been pushing its wares on Instagram, with one account linked to Phantom Secure posting images of weapons, drugs, and bundles of cash.
Phantom Secure is one of the most infamous companies in the secure phone industry. Sources and court documents detail that its owner has been arrested for allegedly helping criminal organizations.
