This Wednesday, the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation, Europol, added Dr. Ruja Ignatova, aka ‘Cryptoqueen,’ the founder of OneCoin that allegedly went into hiding after siphoning as much as $5 billion from her consumers back in 2017, into Europe’s most wanted personalities.

As per the reports, Europol is currently offering a 5,000 Euro reward for anyone who can give them fruitful information that may lead to the eventual arrest of Ignatova on several fraud charges for facilitating solicited investments for OneCoin, which was then later found out to be worthless.

Back in 2014, Ignatova advertised her OneCoin as the “Bitcoin killer.” This huge claim then garnered substantial interest for the next few years, leading to Ignatova raising funds from investors across 175 countries.

However, just 3 years after, OneCoin was verified as nothing but a Ponzi scheme. Before the authorities got a hold of the one responsible, Ignatova, she reportedly boarded a flight to Athens, Greece, and never been seen again.

While Ignatova continues to avoid the face of the law, the people connected to her and the OneCoin Ponzi scheme weren’t so lucky. In 2019, OneCoin’s official lawyer, Mark Scott, was deemed guilty by the US District Court in Manhattan of conspiracy to facilitate money laundering activities and bank fraud. Meanwhile, Ignatova’s brother, Konstantin Ignatova, promptly pleaded guilty to the same charges as Scott before turning coat and testifying against him.
