Konstantin Ignatov pleads not guilty to OneCoin wire fraud
Konstantin Ignatov’s preliminary hearing went ahead as scheduled on May 28th.
In his capacity as “the top leader” of OneCoin, the DOJ charged Ignatov with conspiracy to commit wire fraud back in March.
As per the Minute Entry for the hearing, Ignatov has plead not guilty to the charge.
During the hearing Ignatov also waived prosecution by indictment, meaning prosecutors didn’t have to obtain an indictment via grand jury.
This is likely tied to the request for a continuance last month, however we don’t know exactly what went down between Ignatov’s attorney and the DOJ.
Had a deal been reached, Ignatov would have presumably waived prosecution by indictment in exchange for a guilty plea.
This would have been in his best interests, as an indictment might have resulted in more serious charges.
Ignatov’s not guilty plea suggests whatever negotiations might have been taking place are off the table for now.
Looking forward a Status Conference has been scheduled for June 6th. Ignatov will remain in detention until then. Stay tuned…
In case anyone’s wondering why the delay in reporting, it’s because they changed the case number for a third time.
I didn’t think to check for new cases because they always leave a note on the existing case advising of the new number. This is the first time I haven’t seen a note left on the docket.
The “new” case is actually an old case number dating back to OCT 2017. The case is titled “USA v. Scott – Sealed Defendant 1”.
I have no idea why Scott is in the case title, as he has his own case number (bundled with Ruja Ignatova).
I *think* a court clerk might have realized this case predated the then current one, and so closed it and rolled the docket over.
I believe Ignatov was a sealed defendant at the time.
This would explain why the filing numbers jump from 6 to 81 in the predated case (now the currently active case).
Anyway I’ll be tracking the current case number so we shouldn’t have any issues from the 6th.
If nothing shows up I’ll assume they’ve changed the case number again but this time should be able to locate it.
Thanks to OneCon Squad Sofia for bringing this to my attention.
are you sure about this?
When I delved into the subject yeasterday, I got impression that plea deals are very rarely reached at the arraingment:
And it seems that waiving an indictment can be seen exactly as an indication of a plea deal:
Not sure. I was reading up on waiving indictment and the impression I got was that if it was waived as part of a deal, then the defendant would just plead guilty.
Seems a bit strange to negotiate a deal wherein going the indictment route is not favorable to the defendant, but then also allowing for a not guilty plea within the negotiations.
The onecoin community can hardly wait to hear the prosecution’s case against Konstantin. We continue to be financially educated, use our ONE and spread the word of financial literacy in over 195 countries. According to (Ozedit: derail waffle removed)
Finally, tell us why an organization that’s trying to financially educate the masses is being targeted. I read an interesting article a moment ago that said, Bitcoin rallies despite its limited use and more speculation.
ONE is being used everyday by community members who have gone thru KYC and AML procedures, without any problems – we cant wait for the case.
You’ve already heard it, it was detailed in the original complaint.
Because whilst teaching people the perils of investing in a Ponzi scheme and losing your money to scammers is a valuable financial lesson, doing so by running a Ponzi scheme is still illegal.
OneCoin collapsed in early 2017. All that’s left is recruiting gullible morons and stealing their money through referral commissions.
This some heavy armchair-lawyering , but I think that the motions for continuance and especially the waiver of indictment don’t make much sense if there isn’t a plea deal in sight.
Pleading not guilty seems like a precautionary measure that any good lawyer would make in the case since the plea can be changed at any point:
It could very well be that the ultimate outcome of Konstantin’s case hinges on Ruja Ignatova’s arrest.
To be a fly on the wall at the DOJ…
Btw, here is the new publically available document in Konstantin’s case:
It has a Forfeiture clause. Doesn’t this mean that US government can go after practically all of OneCoin’s ill gotten riches?
It’s interesting since on the page 23 of the Konstantin’s criminal complaint (justice.gov/usao-sdny/press-release/file/1141986/download) is reference to a legal document found in Konstantin’s possession saying that Konstantin is in full control of all Ruja’s property and has a power to make deals in her name with any third party.
With Konstantin, the US government may have access to at least some of the Ruja’s criminal loot…
That alone, dear sir, tells me you haven’t received enough “education” yet.
(Good luck with promoting what a prosecutor in court has already stated to be a hybrid Ponzi pyramid scheme.)
It truly seems that pleading “not guilty” is close to being a legal technicality if there is a waiver of indictment as the waiver is a strong sign of weakness on part of defendant,
This is from the transcript of Michael Cohen’s recent case, he too waived indictment and issued a a very technical and transient “not guilty” plea, before entering a plea deal:
And then he went on to plead guilty and entered a pla deal. In Konstantin case, unlike Cohen’s, this might not be immediately, but on June 6 th.
I’m just gonna sit back and watch this play out :D.
K Ignatov is innocent of any wrong doing, he has worked hard to educate the masses. Ruja will make sure that she supports him and gets him out of this fake news trial.
One day all you haters will realise that you were wrong. The price of Onecoin will go up to $1000 and you will be sorry that you did not invest.
All this fake news about Onecoin is a joke. Why do the haters keep on spreading the lies.
I bought 10 tycoon packages and daily and friends did too. When we are rich you will still be sitting on the pavement and crying like babies.
Yes but he did so by running a Ponzi scheme. While educating the masses on how scammers steal money through Ponzi schemes is a valuable lesson, he did it by running a Ponzi scheme.
There’s nothing fake about Konstantin’s criminal case or Ruja Ignatova being on the run from the law.
Lulz. Needed ten copies of OneCoin’s copy/paste Wikpedia edumuhcation did you? Sorry for your loss.
scammer meltdowns = always funny.
It was obvious along time back this was a scam!! OL Ruja did well out of scamming people with Bigcoin. I guess she figured I can do it even better a second time with ONECOIN.
Sadly despite everything that is going on,there are people still stupid enough to believe Onecoin is legit!! Ironically even Ruja herself said, this would not work with intelligent people!! Sadly she is right!!
There are even morons running forums and groups supporting this scam. One total idiot trying to pass himself off as an CRYPTO expert, has been trying to crowd fund money for Ruja’s brother currently in jail.
I’ve been study all The News and I belive that those Who join this invest are all agree for The positivt resultat. Just wait and see next…
@Sarinee Vorapan Sjoberg
Didn’t work for the Chinese.
To be fair, when has getting busted by the DOJ ever worked out well for Ponzi scammers?
This dicussion with oz, if I can call it that, would be amusing if the bogus accusations weren’t so serious.
Now I am hearing of a hybrid ponzi, yet none of you illustrious persons will describe for edification and education what a ponzi or hybrid ponzi entails.
I distinctly remember an early article from this actor that said the ignatovas were running a pyramid/ponzi scheme, now it’s a hybrid ponzi.
The fact that you reported on this before and have nothing new except to regurgitate the past vitriol, makes me wonder if there’s a hidden agenda. (Ozedit: conspiracy theory derails removed)
Christ, Konstantin was right on the money when he said OneCoin would only work on idiots.
Heads up, they’re not bogus chief. We called OneCoin’s Ponzi based on its business model in 2014. Probably before they’d even stolen their first $100,000.
The DOJ can’t secure indictments or guilty pleas without evidence. And so $4.6 billion dollars later the chickens have come home to roost.
Pyramid/Ponzi scheme == hybrid Ponzi. The definition of a hybrid Ponzi is literally a combination Ponzi pyramid scheme.
And if you want to discuss banking conspiracy theories and other subjects that have absolutely nothing to do with OneCoin, do it elsewhere.
The education still hasn’t sunk in? My God, it is not our job here to explain to you what a pyramid scheme or a Ponzi scheme is. That’s something you should know assuming you finished elementary school! Just like you should know that a “hybrid” between any two things is a combination of those two.
But as it seems the education still hasn’t kicked in, I’ll say it here that a “hybrid Ponzi pyramid scheme” has features of both Ponzi and Pyramid scheme.
In case of Onecoin, the investment returns (coins sold) were paid from other investments whereas old members got recruitment bonuses from the membership fees of new members. First part Ponzi, second part Pyramid.
The prosecutor said “hybrid Ponzi pyramid scheme”. Pay attention.
@ Oz – I keep admiring your patience with these brainless OneCoin scammers.
There is a saying: Stupidly born and nothing learned!
no one is stopping you from providing proof to back that statement up.
Incredible! The imperialist mafia based in the United States is fighting against the harmless and innocent Bulgarian OneCoin Mafia!
nice one 🙂
Incredible! The imperialist mafia based in the United States is fighting against the harmless and innocent Bulgarian OneCoin Mafia!
Word that comes to mind ‘Nemesis’
Karma always comes around, sooner or later.
OneCoin has caused so much pain and suffering to so many people throughout the world it is really so very shockingly sad.
OneCoin finally meets its ‘Nemisis’ for ALL to watch and for the OneCoin Victims that cannot come quick enough.
A OneCoin scammer from Pakistan has found another culprit! 😀
Ruja Bitcoin and Konstantin Bitcoin are afraid of OneCoin, the BITCOIN KILLER!
Moses Kiwanuka announced that on June 6, OL will welcome their new Supreme Leader Mr. Constantine Ignatova.
This news had to come as a shock to Konstantin sitting in the jail in NYC.
According to the faithful, he and his attorney voluntarily allowed the US Government another 30 days to come up with enough evidence to try their case against him.
And this is how OL repays him for his generosity? What an Ego blow and to his pride.
I hope they take pictures as I want to see Constantine Ignatova. Finally a name for the head of OL after all the anonymous news releases.
I will hardly be able to sleep tonight with anticipation and excitement of seeing pictures of the new Supreme Leader. How ahout all ofyou?
I think they should have chosen Spongebob or Patrick as their new leader. That would be more legit.
This man might be interesting for your list: Syed Mubashar Hassan from Pakistan:
Is this one of the 50 distributors who collect the money for Ruja and Konstantin? In his Facebook profile he states:
On OCD, curry hater posted this:
Hate to break it to him, but this is absolutely false – at least in the US. It’s an easy google search with many hits, but here’s one such example:
What a dummy.
Ya. atleast 1 of them reached out to due his due dilligence and reach out to the Swedish Tax aouthorites (Turkish Onecoin scammer most likley)… and thay answerd…. So its having some positives effects.
Will this news be used by the OC company to revive its lies and launder more money from civilians?
OC has already emphasize this news on its website. I’m pretty upset about this.
It’s not news. It’s spam OneCoin published on a bunch of press-release websites today.
They literally just made it up.
Yeah, the “Sweden closed investigation” is not news. OneCoin uses PRNewswire/Cision to spread OneCoin’s own paid announcement.
News sites which host PRNeswire/Cision feed,one of them being Yahoo Finance, show this paid announcement.
It’s a clever move by the OneCoin criminal in charge at the moment in Sofia, Veselina Valkova, because most OneCoin members believe it’s real news which many news sites are hosting, and hype it as such.
Yes, Sweden police closed OneCoin pyramid investigation 1.5 years ago, but it was hardly extensive, due to the fact that it was done by one officer – Emelie Petersson.
Also contrary what OneCoin says in its paid announcement, the Sweden Gaming Authority still considers OneCoin an illegal pyramid, same as the Swedish Tax Agency.
Swedish Tax Agency infact verified that OneCoin is considered a pyramid just 2 days ago in Twitter:
It was a tactical move by OneCoin scammers in Sofia to release and spread this kind of paid announcement camouflaged as news at this time, just before Konstantin’s court day.
Veselina Valkova seems to be getting a fair amount of publicity and it has been suggested she is in charge of the Sofia office at the moment.
Irina Dilkinska was the Head of Compliance and legal Department until about 18 months ago or so and she has gone off the radar for some months.
Any other Head Office names?
Veselina Valkova is in charge in Sofia. Other known active names in Sofia currently:
Krum Angelov – Head of Customer Service
Vesselina Tashkova – Customer Support Team Leader
Tereza Videnova – Manager
Just release update for the Mark Scott OneCoin money laundering case:
The article is behind a paywall, here’s a screenshot:
Thanks for clarifying, guys. You guys are pro scam-fighters!
Mark Scott Document related to law360 article uploaded:
Case 1:17-cr-00630-ER Document 84, filed 5 June 2019
THE GOVERNMENT’S MEMORANDUM OF LAW IN OPPOSITION TO
DEFENDANT MARK S. SCOTT’S PRETRIAL MOTIONS
Jesus Christ Pacer is a mess for this case.
1:17-cr-00630 is spread out across four subcases, each with different dockets. And there’s a ton of filing overlap between the different cases.
It just seems random which case docket they add updates to.
USA v. Scott: latest filing is Doc 84 (see comment #40 above)
USA v. Scott – Mark S. Scott: same as USA v. Scott
USA v. Scott – Ruja Ignatova: no updates
USA v. Scott – Sealed Defendant 1 (Konstantin Ignatov): no updates
Just to be safe I checked the old Konstantin docket, no updates there either.
Going through the 40+ page DOJ filing, seeing if there’s any new info there.
There might be a blueprint in here for MLM crypto due-diligence. I’ll see how in depth they go.
We already know the SEC is unregistered securities, but this might be a good indication as to what the DOJ are interested in (with respect to MLM crypto in general).
The filing is mostly procedural. It relates to search warrants, legal standards being met with Scott’s indictment and whether the government met various legal burdens.
Seems to be pretty solid, so I don’t like Scott’s chances at succeeding in getting his indictment dismissed or suppressing evidence.
Scott’s trial is scheduled for October.
Hadnt seen the full transcript before. Interesting imo.
I am as of now banned from igors ODB, sad. It was fun while it lasted!
Yes, the cry babies couldn’t take the heat and complained. Just surprised that more of us have not been banned again, but it might not be long now before we all are.
Can’t have all those “We told you so” posts proving the major cry babies don’t know what they are talking about. Wanna bet that detroyer and flatrate don’t leave as promised with Konstantin not being set free?
What I found interesting in the new DOJ filing in Mark S Scott’s case is that it says that the proscutors haven’t had access to the material that was seized from Scott (footnote 2 on page 3). It’s still being vetted for attorney-client privilege stuff by a review team.
Scott even made a complaint about the duration of this process but Government argued, based on a precedent case, that it’s not unduly long time given the volume of the material.
So there is potential treasure chest of evidence that is being gathered, but so far the prosecutors haven’t had an opportunity to see and utilize it.
Hoping to see news about Konstantin’s case soon. My money is still on Konstantin’s plea deal, altough not sure at which stage it will be reached.
I haven’t found any other reason for why Konstantin should waive a grand jury indictment other than as a prelude to a plea deal. (The “not guilty” plea at arraignment was a insignificant formality.)
At the very least, it’s a sign of weakness on his part that he is giving up his right to a grand jury indictment and consents to whatever the prosecutor is writing about him.
To be honest, the Swedish tax authority have not classified OC as an illegal pyramid scheme, just as a pyramid scheme.
The main consequence of this is that it is likened to an international game, say poker playing.
You have to pay tax on your gains, but can’t deduct losses against other income.
@Niente, Pyramid Schemes are illegal by definition in many countries. I’m pretty sure that’s the case in Sweden as well.
Pyramidschems are illegal in sweden.
Unless you have a license, and you cant obtain that since its stated by the license giver “lotteriinspektion” that you cant.
Due to the poor legislation our “lack of need” perhaps, its stuffed in the “laws regarding gambling” ,more specifically Lotterilag (1994:1000) as a “kedjebrevspel” = Chain letter
So truly some old school type of legislation.
In Sweden we usually see the scammers sentenced on Tax charges and/our financial charges, rather then violation of gambling laws.
More info regarding Pyramidscams in sweden.spelinspektionen.se/spel-utan-tillstand2/kedjebrevsspel/
I know onecoiners cant count, and most of them cant put two logic toughs our even sentences together, But In effect Onecoin is dead in sweden, any type of “nett gain, coins,badsheets,monies,rujas old nose” disclosed as earnings from Onecoin is HEAVLY taxed and will open you up for criminalcharges, The option to “hideaway” our not declering any gains will Open you to even worse charges :taxavasion…..
Lucky us Swedes we have good old USA to take this trash to the garbage can, since we are well represented by Sebastian (aomg others) in this scam
No case docket updates for Konstantin as I write this.
Well,spent some time in the middle of the night to check the Swedish laws.
Seems the lottery law was changed in 2018, and is now called ”Spellag (2018:1138)”.
In chapter 4, paragraph 6 is written: ”Licens får inte ges för pyramidspel”.
Free translation: It is forbidden to give license for pyramide games.
@midnightcowboy You are correct, Same goes for Lotteriinspektionen , thay are now called “spelinspektionen”. but same same.
Thank you Oz for your hard work on following the court documents.
OneCoin scam leader meeting in Barcelona yesterday, trying to plan and create new momentum for the OneCoin scam.
Among them: Jose “I stop promoting OneCoin” Gordo, Mariana Lopez de Waard, Julien Zerbini, Cristi Calina ,Mihail Petrovic, Dinos Bakalis, Thanh Duong, Marco Vassanelli etc.
Jose Gordo is so full of **** with his previous announcement about stopping promotion. I hope he is next on the line from the scam who ends up on the Interpol Red Notice list.
Nobody has to worry, everything is in perfect order! 😀 A OneCoin fraudster from Austria writes:
By “boss” is meant Ruja Ignatova.
Serial fraudster Peter Walsh also commented on the meeting of OneCoin scammers in Barcelona:
My mother always said to me: “It is impossible to ride a dead horse!” 😀 OneCoin / OneLife is almost dead and will only be kept alive by artificial respiration.
Eventually the machine will be switched off. Not in Sofia, but in New York. Not by a doctor, but by a judge.
What should we make out of the fact that nothing has been heard from the June 6th hearing?
Can there be a reason why the court would not put out a transcript of the hearing?
Not really sure. Every case I’ve tracked has been for the most part timely updated on Pacer.
I want to put it down to proceedings continuing under seal, perhaps on the part of not wanting Ruja to know what Konstantin is doing.
Can’t say that for sure though so all I can offer is it’s certainly odd. Waiting for updates like the rest of you.
For what it’s worth, this has been circulating among OneCoin community since Friday:
Unclear where and how they got this info.
It’s strange that nothing is still found on PACER to corraborate it. It’s possible that they decided to skip PACER and went for the court clerk option.
If the further postponement and added secrecy are true, I think it smells more and more like plea deal.
Once a case is on Pacer any rescheduling is published as a minute entry.
I agree with the sealed theory but am uncertain as to why they’ve gone that route.
OneCoin scammers Asad Kibreya and Simon Le are planning new fraud events in Uganda and Sri Lanka in October.
Will the OneCoin scam still exist in October? I would not be so optimistic…
It is likely that the proceedings are continuing under seal. There are likely a number of proceedings running in the EU as well, but we don’t know about because the authority is generally not giving information’s to a third party or the press.
A lot of so called “leaders” from Germany and Austria as well as Italy disappeared from public events yet, likely beaus of proceedings.
The Steinkeller brothers, for example. Firs big leaders, stolen a lot of money from victims.
Greetings from Vienna!
And also not to forget: the serial cheats Paulick and Deppisch!
In Italy the promoting is still continue.
Every week zoom call. Every week live event, also by eventtribe platform to book event.
Anyone reporting these live events to the authorities? Maybe if they were reported, the authorities would raid and shut them down.
15 weeks ago Stefano Saliola from Italy wrote on Facebook:
To date, no one has reported who wants to buy this Bulgarian scrap.
Even Buyanenemekh Dashdemberel from Mongolia can not sell his Bulgarian Coin scrap even though he only charges $ 1 per OneCoin:
Well the earlier major scammers at Onecoin Igor, Kari and their gang, now copycats at Dagcoin are speeding up. TN from BFH was at their event in Estonia yesterday and reported they are doing 75Million last month.
Same story seems to happen as in Onecoin with more or less the same gang and nobody seems to care. These crooks travel from country to country stealing money. Oh yes it was reported that they are doing their extreme best to get complicated challenges done.
Would that mean to “make it legal” ? Hahahaha we all know where this one is going but before that happens Billions will be flushed away.
You know what is the most incredible thing about this all, these scammers such as Igor still live in Amsterdam, because he is untouchable, while of course Kari became more carefull after several scams and is now residing in Dubai.
Valentina Caraja owns a PowerPack with 3 million OneCoins.
She desperately offers this package on various Facebook accounts for sale. Currently she calls a price now! 😀
Hello Melanie from Germany, The so called “big leaders” left OneCoin yet. The loudest OC scammer, in german speaking counry’s, seems to be actually MaMa (Martin Mayer), he is also on tours (recruiting new people).
I saved all his videos (and those of the Seinkellers, Deppisch, etc.) on my hard drive, so once they disappear i can send them anonymously to the public prosecutor.
@Amadeus – good work
Good work, but I feel sorry for the prosecutors office who has to watch over 500 of this total nutcase mental institute runner Martin Mayer videos through..
Is the guy a scammer who knows he is scamming, or is he mentally ill who lives in a fairy tale land? Cause many time I get the impression it’s the latter. I guess that’s up to the court to decide.
This video was uploaded to YouTube by bankrupt serial cheater Geri Savini:
What do we see? Two OneCoin scammers from Austria hiding behind sunglasses. Stephan Gruber and Stefan Wetzelberger. Both operate the portal megabigdeals.at
And how do you buy a yacht from these two scammers? I quote from megabigdeals.at/home-1/yachtdeals/
The site exists only in german language. The button “english” has no function. In addition, the current link to DealShaker is missing.
So I asked by e-mail where to find the deal on DealShaker. The answer came fast, very friendly and extremely informative: 🙁
I’m excited! 🙁 I would like to buy a new yacht for a lot of money, but the sellers in Austria are not in a position to answer me with a proper mail.
@WhistleBlowerFin – Martin Mayer is not mentally ill. He runs a consulting company (Continuum) and holds a master degree in economics.
He knows very well, what he is doing.
Another newsletter without news. The topic “exchange” is not mentioned again.
The scammers from Sofia regularly ask their victims to trust only information that comes from official sources. If Igor Krnic publishes the weekly reports on the progress of the upcoming “Exchange” in his forum, is that then “official” information?
Questions, criticisms or discussions are not welcome and therefore not allowed. Only Igor Krnic, the omniscient, 😀 is allowed to post comments there.
So Igor also does not have to answer the question of what “central bank” is meant, which is mentioned there regularly. It will be a bank that Ruja founded or bought – based on the Moon or Mars.
Again, a cheap deal, but much more expensive than that of Valentina Caraja! (See comment #69)
Mehdi Yaqoob from Pakistan offers:
It looks like Konstantin does NOT like his new “hotel”. He wants to be released pre-trial.
Some of the proposed conditions:
Whether people like it or not, the precedent was set with madoff and others, and Konstantin *should* be granted bail based on what they are proposing.
He would be pretty restricted, just like others and pretty quickly tossed back in the can if he violated the terms.
Yes, we agree. He is in the clink for more than three months already, he is slowly dying there.
What is Konstantin’s lawyer thinking?
It’s strange to include a support letter from a person (Nicole Adelinova Atanasova) who is tied to the case by working for Irina Dilinska who is co-conspirator in Mark Scott’s case and has worked on behalf of other Bulgarian companies connected to OneCoin as well.
There is also support letter from Konstantin’s mother Veska who is not neutral in this case for his past managerial/ownership role various companies connected to OneCoin and has been beneficiary of OneCoin criminal proceeds.
Rumen and Rosen Dimitrov, whose support letters were also included, have allegedly worked as bodyguards for Konstantin — therefore beneficiaries from OneCoin criminal proceeds and are potential witnesses.
Plamen Ignatov is a convicted criminal in Gusswerks Waltenhofen case in which Ruja was also convicted…. I’ll do some more research tomorrow and perhaps try to document e.g the Atanasova claim.
He knows the judge doesn’t know their background or relationships to Konstantin. Only what is in the letters of support. It is up to the Feds to point out to the judge these relationships and they aren’t neutral supporters at all.
Now if there had been a letter from Ruja, it would have blown the cover wide open of his so-called “neutral” supporters. I am shocked they haven’t had him declared a Saint for all the wonderful things he has done for all of them.
I also found it strange that he didn’t have a letter of support from any of the bars where he was a bouncer. They could have told how great of a bouncer he was, as well as showing so much restraint and compassion he exhibited in his work.

I do not want to swear it, but I’m pretty sure this is the OneCoin scammer Hansjörg Oberrauch. He almost completely deleted his Facebook account. This photo is still available:
Here’s another picture of him with Iulian D. Cimbala:
Hansjörg Oberrauch had 511 subscribers on Facebook, but who those were, is no longer recognizable today.
Thanks very much! Number 13 is definitely Hansjörg Oberrauch. He is from Italy and a diamond, although lives in Vienna according to his FB.
Here’s a video of him talking: facebook.com/watch/?v=971621429609595
Here comes the next big disgrace for the notorious and incompetent scammers from Sofia. Why is this published on Facebook and not in the weekly newsletter?
Since May 2018, the OneCoin idiots complain that the so-called CoinSafe indicates nothing or wrong numbers!
Igor Krnic, the omniscient, 😀 gives this pointless tip on the same topic today:
No matter how mature… The interest will always be equal to One Big “0”.
Again gold bars. And again a dubious offer!
Can someone explain to me what is meant by “onecon”? Another cryptocurrency again? 🙂
The terms and conditions are suspicious and typical of most deals on DealShaker. The purchase is in two steps.
First, a down payment of 1% of the purchase price must be paid. Of course in EURO, not in worthless OneCoins. That’s 541.80 euros.
Thereafter, the purchase of the gold bar for 53,638.20 euros. This results in a total price of 54,180.00 Euro or 1,815.07 ONE.
And when are the gold bars delivered? The seller, allegedly from Germany (GoldStar), avoids a concrete statement. He hides behind this formulation:
I like that! Get up every morning, run to the PC and see if the Exchange has finally opened. So 2019, 2020, 2021, etc. That’s never boring!
In the year 2025 my patience is over and I would like to cancel the purchase. Is that possible? The seller says:
That may be allowed in some countries, but not in Germany!
Since I did not find this dubious offer on old DealShaker, I had to quote from this page:
Alternatively, I found this: 🙂
Today I buy real, certified gold for Euro 39.800,- = USD 44.999,- from the big, serious gold traders and can take the 1 kg bars with me immediately!
We all know prices on DealShaker are unreasonably high. Here is an example from April 2019 – at that time the same gold bar cost “only” € 48,058. The price was also too high!
Please do not forget that Ruja and her criminal Bulgarian clan collect commissions on every deal!
@Melanie from Germany – RE: “I like that! Get up every morning, run to the PC and see if the Exchange has finally opened. So 2019, 2020, 2021, etc. That’s never boring!”
I LOVE your commentary. Lol. Keep em coming. Xoxo!
Thank you for your compliment. 🙂 I like to give this back to you, because I LOVE your graphics and photo montages about everything! So you can sweeten me every day.
They ALL succeeded and I could not say which one I like best. This is just one of my favorites: 😀
@Melanie from Germany – RE: photo montages
Ahhh. Yes. One of my favorites too. But I am not the author of this one. I won’t post who it is for 2 reasons: 1. I’m not 100% sure 2. I dunno if they want it publicly attributed to them.
That said, that image was one of the inspirations for me to make such images, as well as for me to publicly promote attacking scams and scammers using memes (as many victims seem incapable of reading, let alone understanding research or source documentation).
I’ve come to the opinion that such visual stimulation may potentially possess additional enough impact to begin cracking the extremely thick shell of indoctrination encapsulating so many of them and encourage the trend to be implemented early on, in all such scams.
Another class action against OneCoin? This message was published yesterday.
The brainless idiot Martin Mayer (“Ma Ma”) from Vaduz in Liechtenstein has hinted in several of his videos, the upcoming Facebook Coin could be produced on Ruja’s (nonexistent) Blockchain. Allegedly, Ruja knows the wife of Mark Zuckerberg, etc. Now Martin Mayer has uploaded another video with the title:
Martin Mayer further claims that Facebook has taken many good ideas from Ruja, but since the amount of coins on Facebook is not limited, the Facebook Coin will suffer from inflation, while the OneCoin remain stable in price. Which fairy tale Martin Mayer has still spread, I can not say, because in this video, the sound is broken.
Wow! What a surprise! Ruja works again! 😀 Holiday ended?
The next fraud event will take place tomorrow in Ulaanbaatar:
Next Sunday I will fly to Vancouver and participate in the WORLDWIDE BEAUTY & PMU FESTIVAL.
Maybe I can spend my worthless OneCoins there, because it gets so lured: 😀
Did you see this? Two photo series of the event in Barcelona were published here:
I’ve been watching for several weeks that OneCoin scammers are deleting data and removing videos on YouTube. Here is an example from Germany.
The OneCoin scammer Carsten Link from Bendorf in Germany has deleted almost everything from his Facebook account, which would prove his criminal activities in the OneCoin scam.
But as Carsten Link is an idiot, like almost all OneCoin members, the list of his “friends” is still visible. And this list contains the names of many other OneCoin scammers.
Martin Feniuk – Werner Rausch – Pascal-Rene Andre –
Hansjörg Oberrauch – Ingeborg Englisch – Tino Wessels –
Steven Wagner – Andreas Jorkes – Frank Schwarzkopf –
Carsten Gotowy – Daniel Winter-Holzinger – Thomas Weinand –
Rolf Stirnemann – Uwe Hentschel – Rocky Max Kumar – Dealshaker Onecoin Ryan
(Of course the list is not complete. Only those cheats are mentioned that I know from my research.)
The extent to which Carsten Link is involved in the OneCoin scam can also be seen in the “Like” section. There are 16 likes to pages that promote the OneCoin scam! Here is just one example:
No scam, but usury is this offer from OneCoin scam artist Carsten Link on DealShaker:
Carsten Link demands 1,000 euros for this REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM and claims that this offer includes a € 250 discount. Strange, really weird. On eBay I can buy this system from 129 euros. That’s a tiny difference of only 871 euros! Net profit for the OneCoin scammer Carsten Link?
Here some more infos about Carsten Link, area Koblenz. His deal-cheater page is still available today. He was on the road together with another OneCoin scam artist in the matter of OneCoin fraud.
The name of the woman I have to research again.
The “Exchange company” founded Ruja where? And when? Who is the managing director or CEO? An outside company will not be interested in doing business with the criminals from Sofia.
Das Bild wurde gelöscht
“The picture has been deleted”
Hmm all I got was a black screen with these words on it:
Das Bild wurde gelöscht. Did they take it down?
@ Melanie from Germany
Thanks for the hint. Here is the photo, which meant:
Melanie, you underlined “the Exchange company” several times, I believe, to highlight the use of shell companies. Your point is valid, and I would say even understated: the last point of the dotted list mentions a “European Exchange’s subsidiary”, which appears to be a sub-company of a shell company.
The people in charge, technically incompetent as they are, still have enough understanding to know that being publicly associated with OneCoin in a direct way would drive away any partner, and therefore are trying to keep as distant as possible from any other “entity”, in theory in charge of the deals with a degree of independency, and easy to blame later for the failures for come.
If any of these negotioations mentioned in the periodic updates were real, of course. They almost certainly are not.
Saw this yesterday. It’s the same lawsuit.
Plaintiff is the same they’re just re-promoting it.
Yesterday’s report as a video:
Great, what you found there! 😀 This confirms that Carsten Link is a guy with whom one should not do business.
The insurance agent Carsten Link calculates 300 euros per hour for a consultation.
For comparison: My lawyer, with a state law exam, charged 90 euros per hour. And what did Carsten Link learn? NOTHING! I quote from his Facebook profile:
And what does the insurance agent and OneCoin scammer Carsten Link actually sell on his website versicherungsbuero-link.de? Insurance? Probably not when I read:
Carsten Link is likely to use this website for OneCoin fraud and not for the sale of insurance.
Two clear comments under a video with OneCoin scammers Ruja Ignatova and Cristi Calina from Romania: 😀
The OneCoin scammer Jürgen Kitz from Austria now recommends Bitcoin. Why? 😀
I watched the video, but I could not find Ruja. Again seven minutes of valuable time is wasted. 🙁
Supplement to comment #95
Here I discovered the next lie! Today’s newsletter contains NO information about the “Exchange Summary Week 7”
New scam event in Baku (Azerbaijan) from the 26th to the 28th of July 2019. Next to the OneCoin scammer Simon Le (Crown Diamond, Master Distributor) from Vietnam the following scammers are announced:
– Vugar Mammadov (Rubi, Merchant)
– Svitlana Korniichuk (Blue Diamond, GLG)
– Gaukhar Tambetova (Blue Diamond, GLG)
– Sevda Ibrahimova (Franchisee Azerbaijan, GLG)
The series scammer Peter Walsh wrote a few minutes ago:
What does Peter Walsh enjoy? Alcohol or drugs? Or both? 😀

In the past, the OneCoin scammer Jürgen Kitz from Austria has also advertised the fraud with GetMyAds.
In addition, Jürgen Kitz operates the fraud portal yourcoininfo.com, where he also advertises the Questra scam.
His latest fraud portals diecoinzone.com (or thecoin.zone) are not finished yet and largely without function. Here is a part of the future imprint:
OneCoin cheater Rana Sajaval Khan from Faisalabad in Pakistan has changed the status of the Facebook group Onecoin Official group from “public” to “secret”. Why? 😀
It is always funnier! 😀 Konstantin Ignatov became a member of the Facebook group Onecoin Official group last Friday?
How is that possible? Is Konstantin free again or does he have a computer in his prison cell?
No, the explanation is simple. This Facebook account is a fake by a fraudster from Gujranwala in Pakistan. And this is how this cheater looks like:
His real name is Muhammad Adil:
Yesterday, many OneCoin scammers traveled to Sofia to learn how to successfully cheat in the future.
Numerous photos of this event have been published on facebook.com/vipglobalone/:
New fraud events with Lê Simon Quốc-Hưng (“Simon Le”) and Habib Zahid in Tunisia and Italy:
These kind words were written by Mian Adeel Mustafa, a police officer from Pakistan who has had bad experiences with the Bulgarian miracle currency OneCoin. 😀
My personal recommendation: Who works for the police, should fight fraud and not participate in it!
Attention, watch out! Latest news directly from Egypt. Ruja Ignatova announces the long-awaited IPO (Initial Public Offering)!
Has the topic with the announced exchange now died? 😀
It looks like the Government does NOT want to co-operate with Konstantin Ignatov’s Bail Request.
edit: Oh crap it’s 32 pages. Let me wake up a bit hey.

The OneCoin scammer Debesh Roy has published the following text on Facebook. The word “Vika” means OneCoin!
Supplement to comment #120
In the past, the OneCoin idiots had to pay to participate in fraud events. Not with OneCoin, but with real currencies like Euro.
The OneCoin scammers Simon Le and Habib Zahid are now offering free entry! Why? Is nobody willing to pay for lies and fairy tales?
If you want to know the ultimate truth about OneCoin, check out this video with OneCoin scammer Igor Galushko. It exists in a German and a Russian version.
German and Russian OneCoin scammers have joined forces to form a group called kybiki. The website kybiki.de names and shows the German OneCoin scammer Thomas Feder:
Does it surprise someone that both videos may not be commented on? 😀
The OneCoin scammers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH or D-A-CH) raise new hopes. The doubters and critics should be reassured.
Most primitive brainwashing to perfection, or the last attempt to find stupid people redirecting their hard-earned money to Ruja’s private accounts?
Why are not the names of the eight “GLG members” mentioned? Do these eight fraudsters want to prevent the investigating prosecutors from hearing about them? They will not succeed because these names have been known for a long time. In the past, these scammers have been proud to be GLG members and have campaigned aggressively!
Mai Loan, one of the worst OneCoin scammers from Vietnam, is spreading infamous lies again!
“Affirm Onecoin has a blockchain. (European Union has confirmed this)”
This is probably only believed by idiots in Vietnam and other Asian countries!
The European Union is a political community. She does not decide what is legal or what is illegal. Germany is part of the European Union and the German BaFin has decided that OneCoin is banned in Germany. Every country has its own laws.
Melanie, OneCoin “investors” in EU still believe this. Someone who invested told me a few days ago:
Since you are badly informed, I have to correct you. 🙂
NO ONE has invested in OneCoin!
The highly criminal fraudsters from Sofia have sold only (worthless!) educational packages. The attached tokens were a generous gift from Ruja. A primitive trick with which Ruja wanted to disguise her fraud.
Ruja hoped she might mislead the authorities. But the authorities are obviously not as stupid as Ruja’s numerous victims.
Did you understand that now?
The Rheinische Post, a well-known newspaper in Germany, has reported extensively on the arrest of Konstantin Ignatov. It also Ruja was mentioned. That she has been on the run since October 2017 and that she was convicted by a court in Germany where she and her parents Veska and Plamen plundered the Waltenhofen casting plant (Gußwerk Waltenhofen).
The Rheinische Post also cites the public prosecutor’s office in Bielefeld in this context:
The article in the Rheinische Post ends with this statement:
Again new lies from Austria?
“A few weeks” is a very elastic term. Between three and three hundred weeks. Or more. Sounds much better than the obligatory “coming soon”. 😀
On some Facebook pages is now prayed that the promised by Ruja wealth finally arrives. Here is an example from the Philippines:
On other pages is prayed for Konstantin, so he is released as soon as possible from imprisonment. And it is prompted that other OneCoin victims do the same.
We all know that hope dies last. Therefore, the idiot Ndugwa Fredrick from Uganda is currently writing this crap on Facebook:
Every snail is faster than the OneCoin scammers from Sofia. They’ve been cheating for five years, but nothing works right or exists only in Ruja’s criminal brain.
Why did you buy 10* the same education?
Why do you think, you rich?
Your OC hase no value, because there is no market, there will be only sellers, no buyers.

Correctly it should read like this:
“Big swindlers (Luca Miatton and Simon Le) on the way to Verona”
Does anyone know what the guy’s name is, sitting in the back?

The announced by the scammers from Austria countdown for the fictitious “exchange” has not happened!
Another video with Hansjörg Oberrauch, which is not listed on YouTube. At the top right you will find more videos.
The OneCoin scammers Robert & Vera Giorgia Prokop shown above are also very active, preferring cheating in Switzerland and Austria.
The OneCoin scammers Robert & Vera Giorgia Prokop operate this website: rfp.at
Here are some contact details:
The OneLife Compensation Plan can still be downloaded there, which was created in January 2017 by the German serial cheater Frank Schwarzkopf.
The scam portal umwerfend-gut.info leads now on player.vimeo.com/video/309791164
The lying videos stored there can only see who has a password.
On YouTube, however, this short video can be viewed:
Freedom with OneCoin? How freedom feels with OneCoin, Konstantin Ignatov is currently experiencing in his New York prison cell… 😀
The Facebook account facebook.com/prokop.tel is not available to me. Am I blocked or can not our readers access this account?
@Robert Friedrich Prokop
You should work as a cook again. Maybe you understand more about this matter than pseudo-cryptocurrencies like OneCoin!
Google finds another entry about these OneCoin fraudsters from Switzerland:
Also this link – facebook.com/Finanzrevolution.one/posts/536123559925800 – unfortunately I can not call. The fraudulent account facebook.com/Finanzrevolution.one/ is still available.
@Melanie, I could access his FB account so you must be blocked.
I was surprised that he didn’t have more info on OneCoin on his FB page. I had to scroll down quite a ways to see any reference to OneCoin.
The fraudsters Carmen & David Wiese from Jockgrim in Germany have their fraud portal finanzrevolution.one taken off the net. The domain was registered on June 21, 2016.
On the website xing.com/profile/David_Wiese2/cv the fraudster David Wiese calls himself a “manager”.
Is every ordinary networker working for PM International a manager? A real manager would also use another photo of himself.
On this one does not recognize, how this self-appointed manager actually looks. Typical for most show-offson the Internet.
