According to reports, a Munich lawyer who worked with the “crypto queen” allegedly transferred $19.7 million to Ignatova to purchase two apartments in London. The other two defendants include a husband and wife accused of processing over €320 million in OneCoin customer payments in just one year.
The scandalous Bulgarian founded the OnceCoin initiative, which started in Bulgaria, then left the company in 2017. Federal investigators in Manhattan accuse her of fraud and money laundering in connection with a pyramid scheme.
The U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York said on Twitter that they would add her to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list on June 30, 2022. Ignatova is also the only woman on the list.
In May, Europol also listed Ignatova as one of the most wanted individuals on the law enforcement agency’s list. People were also promised a $5,200 reward for sharing any information that could lead to her capture – however, Ruzha Ignatova remains at large.
