BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado man accused of defrauding investors of more than $1 million in a Bitcoin-based investment scheme has eluded being served charging documents and federal regulators are seeking permission to serve him via email.

The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission filed a complaint against Dillon Michael Dean and his company, The Entrepreneurs Headquarters, in New York in January.

The Boulder Daily Camera reports prosecutors have been unable to serve Dean the summons and complaint because he is concealing his whereabouts.

The CFTC asked the court on March 20 to allow them to use other forms of service, including email, or that he be considered served because “there is no doubt that Dean is aware of this lawsuit.” That request hasn’t been addressed so the commission on Wednesday asked for an extension of time to serve the summons.
