OneCoin Ponzi Scam Ringleaders Charged in United States21.6

Following his arrest by authorities at LAX airport, Konstantin Ignatov, leader of the OneCoin ponzi scam, now faces charges. His sister, Ruja, who founded OneCoin, also faces multiple charges of fraud and money laundering — although currently remains at large.

Ruja Ignatova created OneCoin in Bulgaria in 2014 and it generated $3.8 billion in revenue by Q3 2016, according to prosecutors. The OneCoin ‘tokens’ rose in alleged value from 50 euro cents to nearly €30 — despite the fact that the ‘digital currency’ had no blockchain, no utility, and no way of monitoring it.
