Why OneCoin is a ponzi scheme

OneCoin claims to be a cryptocurrency that is going to be bigger than Bitcoin. Its promoters call it the future of payment. In reality OneCoin is a global scam estimated to be worth over 15 billion USD.

OneCoin, and its sister company OneLife, is the brain child of Ruja Ignatova. She presents herself as a trustworthy business women and has constructed an online presence to support her credibility. The facts from her past tell another story. She has since disappeared after an arrest warrant was filed against her in the United States (late 2017).

With over 160 arrests linked to OneCoin across many different countries, the evidence against OneCoin, OneLife and Ruja Ignatova is mounting. Despite this, many people still choose to promote this scam and continue to deceive others, even their own families. Victims or perpetrators, these people need to be called out and encouraged to stop their activity.

BitCoin News: Onecoin victims join petition seeking establishment of crypto fraud compensation fundPetition no 0421/2020 by Jonathan Levy (US) on the need to set up a crypto assets fund for crypto crime victims.

Petition Summary
The petitioner indicates that the victims of crypto crime are defrauded of thousands of millions of euros annually. He points out that the European Parliament has already called for measures to regulate crypto assets and observes that, to date, no crypto asset funding has been set aside to compensate the victims of directly related criminal activities. The petitioner is therefore seeking the introduction of a regulatory scheme to compensate victims. He is acting on behalf of the victims of crypto crime (fraud, piracy and extortion) illegally targeting or making criminal use of crypto assets. Victims have attempted to recoup their losses in different ways such as legal proceedings in national courts, criminal complaints to national authorities, bank transfers, credit card reversals and block chain tracking. None of these remedies has been successful owing to the multi-jurisdictional nature of the crypto-currency transaction. Similarly, the petitioner notes that neither the Commission nor the European Ombudsman have declared themselves competent in this matter. He urges the European Parliament to act directly to help the victims of crypto-active crimes as part of its EU strategy for the creation of a genuine single market for digital financial services.

Courtlistener - Konstantin trial

OneCoin promotor arrested!

OneCoin promoter in Ecuador sentenced to five years prison! 

Ivonne Ortiz was a prominent promoter of the OneCoin Ponzi scheme in Ecuador. Ortiz featured in official OneCoin marketing material, appearing to be pretty high up the food chain. Marketing material featuring Ortiz dates back to 2016, meaning its possible Ortiz was one of the first OneCoin promoters in Ecuador.

Following complaints from OneCoin victims, Ecuadorian authorities opened an investigation into Ortiz last year.

The investigation found Ortiz lured people into OneCoin on the premise of earning a return through OneCoin tokens.

Ortiz’s victims were instructed to deposit funds into a savings account, held in the name of Ortiz’s minor daughter.

After receiving the money, Ivonne O. gave her victims a code which they entered on a website, which apparently provided their investment.

However, as time passed the victims could not access the digital portal, confirming the deception they were subjected to”, the Public Ministry detailed in a statement.

At Ortiz’s trial three OneCoin victims claimed to have given her $10,000 each. Additional evidence presented included victim testimony and financial records.

Based on this evidence, the Judged of the Pichincha Criminal Court found Ivonne O. guilty and sentenced her to five years in prison.

Ortiz was found guilty on charges related to marketing income potential through an unauthorized alternative currency.

In addition to serving a prison sentence, Ortiz will also have to reimburse $10,000 to her three victims and pay a $4800 fine.

On the monetary side of things Ortiz seems to have gotten off lightly. If she was pitching OneCoin since at least 2016, it’s a given she personally recruited far more than three investors into the scheme.

The real loser here however is Ortiz’s daughter, who was eight in 2019.

As a result of her mother chasing Ponzi dreams, she’ll spend half of her teenage years without her around.
