According to Keith Kay, Sr.Police detective Waikato, McIvor received millions of dollars from a pirated movie site he took part in creating. A hint at a New Zealand citizen was given by the US tax service, which discovered suspicious transactions in the PayPal payment system.

“Transfer of illegally received funds to NewZealand is money laundering, and the police are thoroughly investigating and delaying the assets of those who carry out such activities, no matter where the crime is committed, ”Kay said.
