To be naturalized North Korean or Russian: the essential precaution to take for the scammers. The Cryptoqueen is still running despite the fact that the world it created has been dismantled card by card by the American authorities.
The queen will not capitulate, her servants on the other hand …
The marketing manager of OneCoin, Karl Sebastian Greenwood, would negotiate an agreement with the American authorities as part of his indictment for his involvement in the case OneCoin.
On December 18, 2020, the officials of the 2 parties reportedly informed the Manhattan judge, Edgardo Ramos, the holding of these discussions.
Greenwood was indicted in 2018 on 5 counts including money laundering, fraud and conspiracy. In a previous trial, he had been described as the “public face of OneCoin “.
As a marketing manager, he presented OneCoin to potential investors to obtain new financing.
OneCoin was designed as a classic Ponzi scheme that has nothing to do with cryptocurrency. The basic infrastructure that was supposed to use the blockchain and the vaunted token token existed only on paper.
The pawns fold
The prosecution maintains that Greenwood allegedly made “false statements and misrepresentations in soliciting people around the world,” allowing the team to raise nearly $ 1 billion in funds that would have generated nearly $ 2 billion in profit at the expense of investors.
Greenwood operated since Sweden and had been arrested in Thailand in 2018. The brain ofOnecoin, Ruja Ignatova, is still not found. His brother, Konstantin Ignatov, has pleaded guilty to the charges against him and is awaiting details of his conviction.
For his part, the personal lawyer of Ruja Ignatova, Mark Scott, was struck off the bar after his conviction for money laundering. OneCoin will be the subject of a film with Kate winslet and, a series of BBC would also be in preparation.
Onecoin will certainly inspire many new scammers: they currently have at their disposal the list of countries to avoid for a leak during an exit scam. Only the lambda people are justiciable, the powerful do not go before the judges. Traditional finance to Bernard Madoff and other top scammers, new finance to Cryptoqueen. Hollywood producers will certainly find the angle to make the story more interesting: simple stripped pigeons, too commonplace to sell! Criminal genius exposed to the general public, on the other hand, makes the villain a person misunderstood and revolted by today’s society.
