Argentinian OneCoin arrests climb to fourteen (4 new)
As part of the ongoing Argentinian investigation into OneCoin, prosecutors in Cordoba have approved the arrest of four additional suspects.
Rodrigo Domínguez, Aldo Leguizamón and two other people stand accused of defrauding clients through the OneCoin Ponzi scheme.
Dominguez and Lguizamon are well-known as a local businessman and doctor respectively.
Leguizamon ran “Cripto Travel”, a merchant store on OneCoin’s failed DealShaker platform.
Cripto Travel represented it was selling new Toyota vehicles to Argentinians. The vehicles were purchased in ONE tokens, plus an additional $1500 in “expenses and freight”.
In reality Cripto Travel’s listings were stolen from a Mexican auto company and no vehicles were delivered.
After OneCoin collapsed, Dominguez went on to promote ZevenCoin. ZevenCoin was tied into promotion of an “ozone capsule” developed by Dominguez’s company Elypson Home.
In the middle of last year, Domínguez presented Elypson’s new creation, an ozone capsule capable of sanitizing and performing intelligent temperature control, in relation to Covid-19.
The marketing ruse was ZevenCoin’s owners were financing development of the capsule. In turn, Dominguez and Elypson Home promoted ZevenCoin.
Argentinian Prosecutors allege ZevenCoin
never existed and it was a deceptive pyramid scam maneuver that stripped large sums of money from clients seduced by the investment.
“They sold smoke”, they point out, indicating that they were offering a fraudulent virtual currency.
The now defunct ZevenCoin website redirects to what appears to be another ERC-20 shit token project with the same name.
The full list of OneCoin scammers arrested in Argentina thus far is:
- Adolfo Gustavo Amuchástegui
- Eduardo Alejandro Taylor
- Edgar Nicolás Moreno
- Mónica Gabriela Blasco
- Mariana Noel López (with house arrest)
- Manuel Vicente Peralta Guevara
- Andrés Matías López
- Ricardo Beretta
- Ariel Eduardo Morassut
- Daniel Cornaglia
- Aldo Leguizamón
- Nancy Diazamón
- Hernán Pizarro and
- Rodrigo Domínguez
The good news is Argentinian Prosecutors aren’t done. They are still after three indicted suspects, for which arrest warrants have been issued.
The bad news is those suspects are Ruja Ignatova, Konstantin Ignatov and Jose Gordo.
Ruja Ignatova (right), OneCoin’s founder, disappeared in late 2017.
Konstantin Ignatov, Ruja’s brother and former OneCoin CEO, was arrested by US authorities in March 2019.
Ignatov plead guilty to criminal charges relating to OneCoin and is awaiting sentencing.
Jose Gordo (right) is believed to be a Spanish citizen. He is one of OneCoin’s top net-winners.
Gordo was appointed Master Distributor of Latin America and Mexico after Sebastian Greenwood’s arrest.
In mid to late 2019 Gordo abandoned OneCoin. He resurfaced as a promoter of Apex International in October 2019.
Apex International was a short-lived Ponzi spinoff of Kuvera Global.
In June 2020 Gordo joined Beyond Wealth, a reboot the Onyx Lifestyle Ponzi scheme.
Gordo continues to scam people through his “Fenttix” and “My Business Academy Pro” branding.
At some point Gordo fled to Panama. He remains at large on the run from criminal charges.
Update 9th November 2022 – Two defendants, Rodrigo Domínguez and Aldo Leguizamón, pled guilty to the charges against them.
Domínguez and Leguizamón were each handed down prison sentences earlier this week.
Thanks to Tim for the heads up. Had to remove the comment though as you left it on an unrelated article.
I’m old enough to remember when King Jayms said that nothing will come out of the Argentina case, that it’s going to be dismissed soon.(https://behindmlm.com/companies/onecoin/8-onecoin-ponzi-scammers-arrested-in-cordoba-argentina/#comment-431717)
Now almost 9 months has passed from those statements, and the case hasn’t been dismissed but expanded.
You should buy more educational packages because you still haven’t really understood the point of OneCoin.
Arrests are part of the OneEcoSystem! And they’re completely free.
The Argentinians who were first arrested have been sitting for nine months already?! Sucks to be them. You could have a baby in that time
OneCoin scammers are planning to create country boards and try to obtain “legal opinions” in every country:
A video was released today, where KingJayms Lyudmil Georgiev and Mihail Petrovic talk about these and other plans. Lyudmil Georgiev says that OneCoin’s IT team consists of 21 people.
You don’t need a “country board” and “legal opinions” to know that MLM + securities fraud = Ponzi scheme.
Legal opinions justifying securities fraud = toilet paper when regulators come knocking.
^ Yeah these paid “legal opinions” are always total rubbish, but unfortunately they work pretty well in marketing and that’s the point of course.
They are still looking for JoseG although he is easy to locate with all the activities he still does on social media.
The last statement he has put on:
could work against him as to me that is clearly saying, what my team did I di first and I even trained them.
14 of his Team are in prison in Argentina, will he be next?
Maybe they should also put out an arrest against the other Mariana Lopez D.W. who was almost the right hand of Jose G. and now in Madrid launching the Monat haircare program.
After a few more scams first with Jose together she finally went products. Probably scared to be arrested soon or later.
She was one of te 3 key people selling Onecoin in all Latin America and she cashed in multi-millions.

Remember the embarrassing “Free Konstantin” -support initiative from the OneCoin scammers?
In the weekly global webinar today, according to KingJayms they are now planning something similar for the Argentina case. A desperate support initiative to show support for the arrested IMAs in Argentina and obviously hoping to influence the investigation and the prosecution process in Argentina.
9 months ago KingJayms was still “confident the situation in Argentina is going to be handled”, and the “case will going to be dismissed and nothing will come out of it”.
The first joke of the century was the website free-konstantin.org:
The second joke of the century was the petition Free Konstantin Ignatov. Only 19,674 OneCoin believers signed the petition, even though it was started in October 2019:
The third joke of the century was the prediction by OneCoin preacher Cordel “KingJayms” James that more than 1,000,000 members would sign the petition:
Yes, RIP free-konstantin.org website.
That didn’t help Konstantin.
Let’s see what kind of support initiative the Bulgarian OneCoin scammers are now trying for the Argentina case. It’s a bit tricky for sure, as they probably don’t want to emphasize too much and remind IMAs that 14 OneCoin promoters have been arrested in Argentina for 9 months already.

Also he seems to have no idea he has done anything wrong by selling “education packages” which imply to give huge monetary profits via worthless fake cryptocurrency existing only as numbers on a Bulgarian MLM website..
Poor guy. He cannot understand that white collar fraud is as bad as anything else and being in jail sucks. He ruined lives or at least livelihoods. At any point he could own up to that and help undo the damage.
I hate how they play the victime card: “I was selling educational packages”. Boo hoo. He never once mentioned free tokens I guess while shilling. Nor the mining, that never happened.
Amazingly this guy did most of the damage he did after Ruja vanished and even after the indictments against Konstantin and Ruja came out.
Massive respect to Argentina for doing what needs to be done
A lengthy article dated February 3, 2022 also mentions OneCoin scammer José Gordo.
This older screenshot from my archive shows his activities in Panama:
Quote from Instagram:
Which designation is correct? Fentix or Fenttix? The Instagram account has existed since July 2020.
Jose Gordo had registered the following domain for the scam in May 2020:
odtlive.com (means “OneDreamTeamLive”?). The domain registration was valid until yesterday. The website was never online.
