OneCoin Crypto Scam Investigations are Very Much Alive as Ruja Ignatova is a Key Suspect

Investigations into OneCoin appear to be renewed as the German investigators add Ruja Ignatova as a key suspect to the case.

Affiliates of the alleged pyramid scheme have been claiming that the company was cleared of all charged by the German prosecutors.

Investigations Still Active

Gerald Rubsam, a general prosecutor based in Bielefeld, sought to clarify the matter, responding to claims that the case on OneCoin was dead. He categorically noted that the case is ongoing; although it’s not known about the duration it would take to have those culpable sentenced.

According to Rubsam, they are investigating as a number of suspects, all who are believed to have been staff members of OneCoin. He noted that they will be faced with various charges, including organized commercial fraud, pyramid sales, money laundering, and providing financial services without permission or authorization.

Confirming Ruja Ignatova was among the suspects, Rubsam explained that:

“The investigation is being conducted against eight suspects, mainly employees of one of the companies of the OneCoin group registered in Germany.”

Ruja Ignatova Still at Large

Although the investigative team has found compelling reasons to believe that Ruja Ignatova could be a key suspect in the OneCoin case, they have had no luck in apprehending him. Since investigations kicked off into the alleged scam, Ignatova is said to have abandoned the project and its investors and disappeared, not to be seen or heard.

Rubsam acknowledges that he’s still at large, but stresses that presumption of innocence still applies until proven guilty. In his own words, he noted that:

“We have no information on where Ruja Ignatova is currently at the moment.”

Although there have been plenty of excuses when it comes to Ignatova’s disappearance, with some claiming that she’s on extended maternity leave or kidnapped by mafia, investigators believe that she purposely hid to escape arrest.
