Gilbert Armenta’s OneCoin forfeiture tops $50 million
A consented to preliminary order has pegged Gilbert Armenta’s OneCoin forfeiture at over $50 million dollars.
Armenta’s preliminary forfeiture order follows Armenta receiving a five year prison sentence last month.
Through his guilty plea, Armenta (right) consented to being held liable for
- $300 million jointly with co-conspirators Ruja Ignatova, Konstantin Ignatov and Karl Sebastian Greenwood;
- $10 million jointly with co-conspirator Mark Scott; and
- $98 million jointly with co-conspirators Christopher Hamilton and Robert McDonald
Filed on March 1st, the order details ~$40.8 million in forfeiture plus additional assets:
- $40 million Armenta surrendered to the DOJ in August 2018;
- $803,500 Armenta surrendered to the DOJ in December 2018;
- a 4 bedroom home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida with an estimated $3.2 million value;
- a 5 bedroom beachfront property in Fort Lauderdale Florida, with an estimated $6.4 million value;
- a Hermes Etoupe 35cm Togo Birkin Taupe Gold luxury bag ($20,000 to $30,000 new);
- a Hermes Pink Alligator luxury bag (~$80,000 to $120,000 new);
- a Hermes Birkin 35 luxury handbag (~$20,000 new);
- a Cartier necklace;
- a gold colored bangle;
- a Bulgari necklace;
- a set of JAR Paris rose earrings (~$12,000 to $25,000 used); and
- a gold colored “link necklace”
The total amount ordered in Armenta’s forfeiture is roughly $50.4 million.
Armenta surrendered the luxury bags and jewelry to the DOJ in January 2018. Given these are used goods of unknown quality, I haven’t factored them into forfeiture calculations (although they are very much part of Armenta’s forfeiture agreement).
I wonder if the surrendered ladies goods were wifey’s or Ruja Ignatova’s…
With the hourly wage for Federal mostly being well under a dollar, Armenta can at least take comfort in the fact that he will earn some of it back.
We know that Ruja Ignatova preferred and bought Hermes Birkin handbags. She has mentioned it several times on Facebook. Her mother Veska also owns a blue handbag of this French company.
From the current collection Ruja would definitely buy this bag:
This bag costs only 575,106.80 euros plus 500 Euro shipping costs.
I always buy my Hermes Birkin handbags, even new ones, on eBay. With this model I have saved 73,000 euros! 😀
Of course, I donated the 73,000 euros I saved to Ruja’s One World Foundation. I had saved the account data a long time ago, because the website oneworldfoundation.eu is no longer online:
Did Ruja raid the account and use it to pay for new handbags?
I was thinking they might have been guilt presents for Armenta’s wife.
Imagine being Armenta’s wife, finding out about the affair and then all these luxury goods gifts.
I know Armenta and his wife eventually split, but still… ouch.
I feel for the wife. If Ruja was the bit on the side, a lot of people must have wondered what Gilbert had chained-up at home.
We’ll probably never know how complicit Mrs Armenta was, hopefully not at all. My knee jerk reaction is to feel sorry for her
We are back to the “Ruja era” insanity. OneCoin/One Ecosystem scammers have created a desperately insane promotion, most likely due to plummeting package sales, offering up to almost 50 times more tokens (and generated coins) from packages.
Before this promotion the 27500 euro Infinity package generates 970.5 ONE.
41 250 € of fake value (ONE=”42,5€”).
During the promotion you will get 48 029 ONE from the same package. Over 2 million euros of fake value. Almost 50 times more “value” in ONEs from the same package.
20412500 tokens/425 (difficulty) = 48 029 ONE * 42,5€ = 2 041 250 €
I wonder will this make the still faithful members wonder how it’s possible during a promotion to get almost 50 times more coins and “value” from a package?
Can even the most gullible members really accept this without wondering what the hell is going on?
That and sucks to be them because when they invested they didn’t get 50x.
Seeing as the tokens are generated out of thin air, why not just give everyone 50x lulz.
Why does King Jayms not want to be “Captain” anymore?
Is it because being “Capo” or a “Boss” attracts the kind of attention the RICO Act is designed to draw to you and makes you think of Goodfellas?
Where is Thanh?
Where is Luca?
What happened to the once UK network?
Yeah, King Jayms’ position as a “Captain” will be permanently closed.
The scam creates a new administrative structure – “INTERNATIONAL GLOBAL COUNCIL”, which includes the scam CEO Zlatkov, King Jayms, Mai Loan, Tommi Vuorinen, Maribel Martinez, Raul Pazos and one still unannounced scammer.
Amateur hour again.
“International Global Council” is the same as saying The American Dodgeball Association of America.
Read through the entire OneCoin newsletter (linked in #6), and this stood out to me:
IMO this is even more dumber than the 50x token bonus. Literally takes a few minutes to set up an ERC-20 shit token and costs nothing.
Deployment costs? Cost per investor account? Lolololol.
^ Polygon network transaction fees are very cheap but not completely free, at the moment about 0.0377 USD per transaction.
Since ONEs have no real value (Price $0.00 @ 0.000000 MATIC), and the members can’t cover otherwise the transaction fees cause they don’t even have the private keys of their own wallets, the company has to take care of the Polygon network transaction fees of all ONE transactions. So of course they have to collect real money for this.
How you going to solicit investment into ONE on the basis “number go up”, but also not use ONE to cover your own transaction fees?
A OneCoin balance is as meaningless in the real world as a final score in a video game.
Twits are starting to realise that
