FBI Offers Huge Reward To ‘Cryptoqueen’ Accused Of Stealing $4 Billion
She could have resorted to plastic surgery as a disguise.
On the run
The second most wanted person in the United States right now is a Ponzi scheme legend known as Cryptoqueen.
The FBI added Ruja Ignatova’s name to its ten most wanted list on Thursday and said she was likely traveling with armed guards and may even have had plastic surgery as a disguise. They are offering up to $100,000 cold hard cash for any information leading to his arrest.
Yesterday the Washington Post reported that the Bulgarian OneCoin founder had gone on the run because she was operating a $4 billion pyramid scheme. Pyramid schemes and multilevel marketing companies are essentially the same and require investors to acquire “downlines” or investors they “mentor” in exchange for a large percentage of said downline’s profits.
Over 3 million people are said to have been duped by the OneCoin scam.
As sad and frustrating as it is to know that so many people have been robbed by the Cryptoqueen, it’s also not terribly surprising.
The crypto and blockchain markets have been on a rollercoaster ride for months, and the market has gone down so badly that it’s even caused a spike in suicidal ideation. Thousands of investors have suffered losses and even more have been victims of NFT fraud and theft – there is no shortage of bad crypto stocks.
It is difficult to express how irrevocable the universal law of “kiss and discover” is. It’s a cruel fate that unless the FBI catches Ignatova, the only people who will find out will be her victims.
