OneCoin CEO Pierre Arens quits, Ruja Ignatova not seen for months
When Pierre Arens failed to appear at a recent OneCoin event in Portugal, host Kari Wahlroos claimed it was because he had a cold.
Far more likely is the fact that Arens was well underway with plans to abandon his position as OneCoin CEO.
Arens was appointed CEO of OneCoin back in May, shortly after the disappearance of OneLife CEO, Pablo Munoz.
At the time of his appointment, Arens claimed he’d “studied OneCoin carefully for almost four months”.
Arens brushed off concerns OneCoin was a Ponzi scheme and claimed
OneCoin/OneLife was just a victim of an extensive and massive smear campaign, very well prepared and organized mainly from Europe.
In a statement provided to Luxembourgish media on Friday, Arens confirmed he has left OneCoin.
Like Wahlroos’ reasoning for his initial disappearance, Arens explanation as to why he left OneCoin makes little sense.
Arens claims he had
a lack of leeway as a leader.
To shape, adapt and evolve a company’s activities, we must have the freedom to act and thus make good use of windows of opportunity that open up.
Following his stint as head of one of the largest global Ponzi schemes today, Arens hopes to ‘rebound in the near future (somewhere) in the finance sector‘.
Arens’ retraction from publicly appearing at OneCoin events follows that of Pablo Munoz.
Munoz was a mysterious no-show at OneCoin’s Macau event earlier this year.
Initially it was claimed Munoz was involved in a car accident on the way to the event.
Following the event Munoz, in his capacity as CEO of OneLife, has not been seen in public.
To this day OneCoin has not clarified what exactly happened with Munoz.
In a similar vein, Ruja Ignatova, widely credited as the founder and owner of OneCoin, has also not been seen or heard from in months.
Following several bungled live presentations (“guh-knee-sis” anyone?), I’ve long suspected Ignatova was little more than a puppet.
I believe the only glimpse we’ve ever had at who’s actually running OneCoin was in an affiliate Q&A video that surfaced earlier this year.
In the video two Swedish affiliates top by the OneCoin office to “sit down and talk with Dr. Ruja”.
As the two affiliates speak, footage of a visibily flustered Ignatova plays in the background.
At [1:51], the peak of the confrontation, Ignatova can be seen calling out to someone off-screen. Sure enough, in marches her brother…
In a separate video dated December 17th, 2016, OneCoin investor Muhammad Zafar refers to Konstantin Ignatov as “head of administration and (the) heart and soul of OneLife”.
For his part Ignatov (right) certainly appears to be putting OneCoin investor funds to good use. His Instagram account features numerous snaps of him travelling around Europe.
Ignatov however is unlikely to be running OneCoin alone. But he definitely appears to be higher up the food-chain than his sister Ruja.
I figure he’s kept in the background as Ignatova’s plastic surgery heavily made-up ball gown look is a better front.
Before his departure, the last glimpse we saw of Arens was in a September video again featuring Muhammad Zafar.
Zafar posed with Arens at OneCoin’s office in Bulgaria for photos. While that was going on the office itself appeared to be stripped down and staff well underway in vacating the premises.
Since then we’ve seen nothing from OneCoin corporate, other than bits and pieces of postponed/canceled plans to launch an ICO sometime this month.
With OneCoin now evidently well and truly rudderless, how much longer it stays afloat can probably be measured in months.
If I was a OneCoin investor, I’d probably be asking myself why anyone with even the slightest business acumen (Pablo Munoz, Pierre Arens, Frank Rickets, Chris Principe, Ed Ludbrook etc. etc.), has promptly departed OneCoin.
The contrast between staff quietly leaving OneCoin and the hype created when they signed on couldn’t be greater.
Once brought in and shown the inner workings of OneCoin, why does everyone not directly tied to Ruja Ignatova flee? What are these people seeing that you’re not?
Update 24th October 2017 – I’d originally provided a link to the “flustered Ignatova” YouTube video cited in this article.
The video was published months ago and remained online until 24 hours or so after this article was published.
Therein it mysteriously was taken down by the original uploader. Make of that what you will.
I don’t know, I could be wrong, but Konsti doesn’t strike me as being higher up than Ruja. He seems to be mainly interested in gym and fitness etc. lifestyle things.
Lets not forget Sebastian who has been involved in business with Ruja starting from Loopium, later BigCoin and now OneCoin.
He gives off that appearance but, and I’m just speculating here, I think he’s closer to their father.
Rememeber Ignatova and her father were both convicted of fraud in Germany before fleeing and setting up shop in Bulgaria.
OneCoin’s either a “family business” or they’re in with the mob. I know that sounds Angelina Lazar’ish but the way OneCoin is run and the impunity it operates with isn’t your typical MLM Ponzi.
Forgot to add, company source says Ruja is on maternity leave..
Right. Sure she doesn’t have a cold? Or maybe her car was hit by a dump truck too…
And if she truly was on leave, who was standing in Pierre Arens way?
He might have been duped but his statement on leaving sounds like he wasn’t down with being a puppet CEO (at least beyond six months).
When was the last time we saw anything from Frank Ricketts in relation to OneCoin?
Dude’s a ghost, only nobody has bothered to come up with an excuse for him yet.
Maybe Ricketts is on maternity leave with a cold after getting hit by a dump truck too…
Re. Greenwood, he’s got a history but not in management.
I think he’s content being part of the Euro gents club hiding out in Thailand. Getting fat, banging the locals etc.
By the way at least Staffan Liback doesn’t need to stay in Thailand anymore, as his Ikaros Group 5 million euro scam investigation went old and was closed in Finland.
Soon after the closing he attended the Lisbon event obviously feeling safe to travel again.
It’s time to be caught by Frank Ricketts, and to answer for all the misfortunes made to OPN and Onecoin.
Ricketts is scheduled to speak in Bangkok later this year: onelifeevents.eu/en/events/onelife-mastermind-bangkok
@Garden – RE: “Rickets…”
Nice find. On the other hand, you won’t be hearing anything ever again Onecoin related by Juha Parhiala and Pehr Karlsson (to the best of our information).
They also joined in Pablo, Steinkellers, Ludbrook, Islams, and various other scammers footsteps who already captured their share of the now dwindling, stolen loot and said, “Adios mofo’s!”
The only “Crown Diamond” I’m even aware of now is Simon Le Le from Vietnam. From what I recall even Jose Gordo, Igor and Andreea Cimbala-Alberts are Black Diamonds. Any other Crowns left or newly appointed?
Bulgarian Newspaper now reported Ruja Ignatova just seen in Burgas (within the last 24 hours) on her alleged new 15 million dollar Yacht (which a reader declares having also been located in Port Varna on 09.09.17).
Wiki: Burgas (Bulgarian: Бургас, pronounced [burˈɡas]), sometimes transliterated as Bourgas, is the second largest city on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast and the fourth-largest in Bulgaria after Sofia, Plovdiv, and Varna, with a population of 211,033 inhabitants, while 277,922 live in its urban area.
OneCoin scam has been surprisingly resilient but I suspect they are now finally running out of steam. Even the most cultist imbecile must see that something is seriously wrong with the company.
The accumulation of bad news (criminal investigations, bans and warnigns), sudden unexplained changes in company’s plans, broken promises, high level departures and the evident utter shittyness of their platforms must make it signifigantly harder to contiunue the scam much longer.
And the spectacular surge of Bitcoin price that has happened in recent times may also be important factor in eating the credibility of OneCoin and causing discontent among the victims who now enviously think about the profits they could have made by spending their money on real cryptocurrency.
“My friend recently more than doubled his money by investing in BTC, where are my riches given the enormous nominal value of my mined OneCoins?”, many of them must think (of course forgetting that they only bought education, not invested in any financial instrument of monetary value ;-D).
Where is Wally-sorry Ruja?
Keep reporting and place pictures of her on the yacht so we can share “the future of payments” with her.
I anticipate this is the nearest we are ever going to get to the bright lights through this scheme
Keep following her and maybe the Bulgarian papers will visit the office and talk to the employees and establish is there anything (or anyone) left –Dilkinska is the perfect person to arrest-she haseven set up shell Companies in Ireland-what for I wonder -answers to compliance in Bulgaria.
Big split is comming, OneCoins will be converted to nOneCoins soon…
Arens quit or fired?
RE: “…or fired?”
1st- that’s Gerlach.
2nd- in context it appears to be a mistranslation possibly.
Ruja must be celebrating the 1st birthday of her baby on the yacht.
@Mr. Czech LMAO Fumnny as hell dude.
@Tim Juha left too? Gee, has that other crazy dude, Labile or whatever his name is commented on the rats fleeing the sinking boat?
What is with that Gerlachreport page anyways?! I mean they did publish wrong informations in the past right?!
The German text has often strange wordings and down right spelling errors. Then there is no comments section… all pretty strange.
And on top of all that I never ever came across a link to a source which would back up whatever have been stated. So whats your position on the credibility of that page?
@Peter Renner – like the Enquirer or Info Wars, some tidbits of truth, unsubstantiated or sourced, with a lot of conjecture, in my opinion.
All claims need to be secondarily sourced from Gerlach, it seems. Publishing or spreading their news could discredit those wishing to expose the truth.
That said, they can be a decent “Lead Source” at times for embarking on personal research and investigation too further uncover possible connections or claims, if these can be backed up.
Juha and Pehr appear to have left around May. Udo Deppisch appears to have had one got out for a bit, but in my opinion May have been compensated to loosely hang around longer (although he began “self-branding” around June, or whenever the annual Gumball Rally was – as he stripped his vehicle of any OC/ OLN promotion at that time, despite heavy marketing the last 2 previous years).
Interestingly, Zafar’s demeanor in recent videos seems to have changed, with a plastic smile and painted on enthusiasm.
He KNOWS VERY WELL what’s really happening behind the scenes and would bee VERY interesting if he bailed, quietly or not. IMO that (or his arrest, of course) could be the catalyst for total collapse.
Top Ponzi deniers are already very critical of Wahlroos’ methods for recruiting, and he seems to have become a “bad example” to those still clinging to false hope of legitimacy.
So Ruja’s hiding out on a $15 mill private yacht, and has purportedly pocketed $300 mill from OneCoin investors.
Guess that’s what happens when you run a Ponzi for two years and then stop everyone withdrawing.
What’s next a private plane? (a real one, not that rented Mexico crap for show)
@Oz, no next is vacationing in a maximum penitentiary estate.
Lets hope that yacht sinks with all hands
whaaat! pierre arens lasted in ruja’s boudoir just a few months? that was really a wham bam thankyou ruja ma’am performance. hope he got paid upfront!
though top scammers like wahlroos and zafar are not addressing arens quick scram from the scene, some loose nut affiliates are trying to put a brave face on it:
it seems sergey&andreas^^ couldn’t care less if ruja takes off on her yatch, pablo falls off the world map and arens does a runner, as onecoin can apparently be run without any management at all.
but, what about the tokyo olympics, sergey&andreas?
your IPO expert pierre arens had tasked himself with running the tokyo olympics on the sheer power of onecoin!:
onecoin can run without pierre, but the tokyo olympics is soooo doomed now…
Well, it seems that Igor didn’t appreciate my last few posts in a thread he started just for little o’le me. He let it be known that he banned me, and will be removing the thread soon.
After all, can’t have all those facts staring everyone in the face that exposes the OC lies. When you can’t stand the heat, you ban them and close the thread. What a coward.
He is in for a very rude surprise, and it won’t be long until he realizes it.
His partner in crime Nikola Korbar (self proclaimed “expert” for cryptocurrenices) is now pitching FirstCoin on his Facebook profile: image.ibb.co/dSCcwR/nkfcp.jpg
Finally got to him it’s time to bail out from OneScam ?
FWIW, Steve Jobs didn’t “leave in due time”. He was forced out by the board when he tried to get rid of the CEO he hired and that CEO turned out to have much better support of the board then Steve himself.
These guys are rewriting history to suit their own narrative. It’s just so 1984, isn’t it?
Official announcement on the OneLife BackOffice: Pierre Arens steps down from the position of OneCoin CEO.
There’s a new payment option for OneCoin/OneLife payments soon: paymentsodt.
News from Panama:
PaymentsODT Banks list
OL Newsletter.No breaking news about the successor of Arens, so far.
Always a “Next Event”. Doesnt give much.
IF ARENS IS CLEARING THOSE ITEMS ON HIS TABLE TO FACILITATE A SMOOTH TRANSITION HE OUGHT TO BE ASKED IS HE STILL HEADING THE ICO(link on post 28).
I THINK HE WAS THE PRESENTER WHO PRATTLED ON ABOUT IPO’s’, ICO’s, OFC ‘s and similar windows of opportunity.
THE LUXEMBOURG AUTHORITIES NEED TO QUESTION HIM VERY SERIOUSLY AND BLACK HIS REPUTATION FOR GOOD AND TAKE AWAY HIS BANKING LICENCES.
MAYBE FRANK RICKETT’S WILL LEAD THE ICO BECAUSE HE SCREWED UP THE LAST GOING PUBLIC PROJECTS ONE WITH BIGCOIN -OR WAS IT OPN NETWORKS -or both.
DO YOU THINK HE HAS READ THE EDUCATIONAL MATERIAL NOW INCLUDING THE NEW LEVELS 6 AND 7—- He certainly didn’t write them.
OneCoin is blacklisted financially in numerous countries (we followed the great banking purge throughout 2015/2016.
Recruitment must have really tanked if they’ve managed to sign up for new accounts using who knows what new shell company names and not trigger anything.
…or they’re lying. Again.
I’ve noticed when Googling “Onecoin.. (anything)” the overwhelming majority of links provided are phishing sites using “Onecoin” as the key word. Hahaha.
Patricia Numan and Roald Mailly failed twice in ACN and later in Jeunesse, and are Igor Alberts right hand in Holland, off course they are banking in Bulgaria and hope that they can keep their stolen money.
One thing is sure, this is their last mlm ride… they did host the Portugal event and their names are forever in Ponzi heaven.
@Lynndel “Lynn” Edgington
I’m trying to find where he explicitly admitted that he have invested 52 bitcoins in OneScam.
I have a video of him talking about that in Serbian (not really sure he mentioned the accurate amount) but would really like to have a screenshot of his own words, just one more reason to point out in future that nobody should trust this guy with his advice, business or otherwise.
9 hrs ago:
Can’t pay bills when recruitment is dead and all you’re left with is worthless Ponzi points.
It is my understanding that he said in a PM to someone that he spent 55 Bitcoin when Bitcoin was trading at $3500 a coin. It gave him 1.2 Million OneCoins.
I don’t remember which blog or forum this was stated, but that’s what I remember the claim to be.
It very well could have been on his blog about OneCoin.
The answer is in this tweet: NOLINK://twitter.com/CryptoXpose/status/903271362038571009
So he means: 55BTC worth 35000 EUR in total.
Funny guy, Igor Krnic. In one of the “debunking” topics on his shit blog he tried to explain that OneCoin is a real cryptocurremcy with a genuine blockchain.
But he failed miserably, if only because he called the OneCoin Blockchain simulator a “toy” 7 times himself. LOL!
So let me get this straight. When all the banks closed down their OneLife Network accounts, the story was the banks were afraid of the competition from OneCoin. Now we are to believe that OneCoin no longer feels the banks are afraid of them and want to do business with them.
It is going to be interesting to see all the shell company names they use for these bank accounts. You can bet that OneLife Network, OneCoin or OneLife will not be in the name of the account.
The good news is once the banks see all the money being run through their banks, they will wise up and shut them down like all the other banks did. They are going to trigger all kinds of money laundering red flags and SAR reports.
Here’s the list of banks that OneCoin says that want to work with them:
New Onecoin “ICO” Terms and Conditions” is Absolutely SHOCKING in what it reveals in Black& White!!!
IMHO it warrants a feature in and off itself!
The following DISTINCTLY defines that the ICO does not have anything to do with real cryptocurrency!!!
…and there’s so much more!
So… sign up for the OneCoin ICO and convert your Ponzi points into… Ponzi points?
And who is Golden Gate Investments?
the terms&conditions at onecoinico.io state that:
an LLC or ‘limited liability company’ is a term used specifically for USA based private companies:
i was able to find one golden gate investments LLC registered in houston, texas:
has ruja bought over a dead company or is there some other golden gate investments LLC registered in some other state? cant be sure.
And the FAQs are hilarious 😀
So the ICO is not an ICO but what? A OCCCO ??? 😀
@anjali – my search on a possible connection also lead me to the following:
TC: So far I’ve been unable to link this information to anything else known or relevant to the history of Onecoin or it’s primary players. However, it’s interesting that “data” appears to have been recently amended or added.
Let us compare the KleptoQueen’s robust and transparent OneCon ICO “Road Map” with a typical ACTUAL cryptocurrency project’s (ICO) “Road Map” (by definition):
(Never-you-mind those pesky Terms of Service, legal mumbo-jumbo disclaimers which contradict this whole shenanigans exercise)
FOR “REAL-LIFE” COMPARISON’S SAKE WE USED:
Typical ACTUAL “Token/ICO” “*Roadmap*”
– ie., an “Initial Coin Offering” as relates to real world example in CRYPTOCURRENCY
(NOTE: many are EXTREMELY more detailed, but I used a very simple example from a REAL whitepaper for comparison):
TC: Something doesn’t strike me as having much “Technical Merit.”
To summarise Onecoin ICO “Road Map:”
QUE: Ignuanatova/ GreedWould:
“Sorry everyone, the “markets” have spoken! No one wanted to be subjected to 3 months wait for “KYC” just to have their identity stolen on Bulgarian Black Markets and to BUY your 43 BILLION shit coins today at €15.95 each (or €25 to €100 each a year from now) – thus flooding a $150,000,000,000 total cryptocurrency market with a $1 TRILLION to $6.5 TRILLION DOLLARS FAKE PRICE SELL WALL, (YOU IDIOTS)!
Your coins on the OPEN MARKET are only worth one Satoshi for 285 ONE.”
Can anyone say, “Unaico/SiteTalk/ OPN redux??
Has anybody been able to sign up there?
I tried also through tor, but the signup button won’t appear.
There are many companies all over the world named GOLDEN GATE INVESTMENTS and I doubt that the one related to Mr. Dakri is the right one. His background doesn’t really match with scamming activity, he is CEO of Wallisbank TX.
I found tens of companies by that name when searching from opencorporates.com, something like 20 in USA alone. Go there to hunt. Given the shady and criminal nature of OneCoin, the most likely the right one might be the one from Uganda, Panama, India or Curacao. 🙂
According to the new ICO FAQ, Token is now called OFC. In the good old times, when they were aiming for IPO (which, btw., cryptocurrencies don’t do, as the new FAQ explains), OneCoins were converted to OFCs.
So: Tokens = OFC = OneCoin? It also says that OneCoins will be publically traded but doesn’t mention where.
And are they now officially selling OFC packages and not education anymore? It seems so. Or who is, exactly?
The site doesn’t explain the relationship between OneLife and this new Golden Gate Investments which seems to be responsible for the ICO arrangement.
Likely some kind of legal trick to shield from criminal investigations by adding antoher layer of complexity.
the ‘LLC’ tag could be fake?
ruja sets up shell companies in offshore havens or easygoing jurisdictions. why would she register in the US of all the places to run a fraudulent ICO?
Its odd that there is no basic info provided about the Golden gate company like address, reg. nos etc. Impossible to specify the company one supposed to be having agreements with and that might be illegal. In terms&conditions company is with LLC tag. With LLC the search retruned only USA based companies (22 pcs).
Btw, in the t&c many gems:
Cryptographic token, the term is new to me. No cryptocurrency anymore? But I suspect there is huge market for cryptographic token experts, especially in third world countries where the Onecoin payment revolution is supposed to be the most helpful. 😉
They say openly that Cryptographic tokens are useless as assetts.
So everything previously said about OneCoin/ICO by third parties (like OneLife or IMAs?) is now superseded by present Terms&Conditions and the White Paper which is not even linked. (it can’t be the Marcelo’s paper, or can it?)
“LLC” can stand for everything. Maybe Luke, Lennard and Carl founded the company in Belize, or it simply means “lying liars company”.
Oh, now I noticed references like
So they are now plannig to use real cryptocurrencies to hide their trails like real criminals? Or can it related to Marcelo’s white paper where he talked about anchoring the OneCoin to a real cryptocurrecy like BTC so it’s perhaps a hint about new system?
Well, I can’t wait to use my BTC to buy valueless cryptograhic tokens to pay for the “services of the ICO/THE PROGRAM” if it will be ever completed. See:
So they refer here openly to the possibility that ICO may never be actually completed.
At bottom of page:
I swear that it only appeared after I refreshed the page in my browser so they made the change only a moment ago. Before it mentioned OneCoin LTd.
it wasn’t there earlier today, i can also confirm that.
so, another shell company in dubai for ruja to hide behind. well, yawn.
people who buy these valueless ‘tokens’ after reading the T&C deserve to lose their money to some shell company in dubai.
I wonder if he thinks quitting mitigates his past involvement?
Thank you very much for this most valuable information. Nigerians are really in for a shock of their lives in a 21st century bareface scam.
How I wish they knew before now that Onecoin is not Bitcoin. At the various meetings of Onecoiners no one is allowed to ask questions openly but at a micro group usually broken into.
Millions of Nigerian Naira translating into millions of Euros have effectively be scammed out of Nigerians.
If it is any consolation not allowing people to ask questions is the global modus operandi of OneCoin scammers.
Add to that the total lack of reference to buying education and the returns that are quoted— this is just an illegal pyramid /ponzi scheme.
In the next year they will not officially bother about calling it education as it is quoted now in their terms and conditions as an investment scheme—look at the thread regarding ONECOIN AND GOLDEN GATE INVESTMENTS FOR THE VERY BAD NEWS!!!
I imagine currency and investments are regulated in Nigeria so you and your fellow duped should refer formal complaints to the collective upline and ask for your money back.
When that fails refer the matter to the authorities but you are likely to need a real address to serve a summons.
Get a record of everything as you will need it for the receiver.
Hope this helps
We were told that the Nigerian Central Bank is already contemplating studying the Block Chain Technology and Crypto currency with a view to fine-tuning it’s operations in Nigeria.
And that in no distant future, OneCoin will be an only world reserved cryptocurrency because it has KYC which is lacking in others especially, Bitcoin.
Which has NOTHING to do with OneCoin.
That is so off it’s “not even wrong”, it’s simply irrelevant.
You don’t need ID to use cryptocurrency. That’s not a feature. That’s like adding ID to… I dunno, baby diapers.
When news all over the world call OneCoin a swindle, it’s a mess.
@Taboo – paper money does not have KYC. Would you be the 1st to volunteer RFID chips in your paper money so that govt or a centralized entity could track every time you purchase liquor, tobacco, birth control or medication – including where and how much you spent on it/ how frequently? No. Of course you wouldn’t. That’s COMMUNISM.
KYC (and AML) is a function and responsibility of banks and Financial Services institutions (ie., Money Services Businesses) who are Registered, Licensed, Bonded and Insured, with oversight governing bodies.
Onecoin/OLN has NONE of these things in a single county on the planet! Add to that that it’s Founders and Operators have both criminal and Ponzi/ Pyramid histories – they could NEVER QUALIFY ANYWHERE.
OneCULT’s KYC policy is (IMO) a slick pseudo-compliance pitch to procure Identity Theft, thus further adding insult to injury once obtained. IN FACT, an anonymous influential Onecoin informant alleges that he’s already seen data offerings by the company for entire territories being sold by the company.
The reason he claims to have finally reached out is because HE IDENTIFIED HIS PERSONAL INFORMATION AS BEING BATCHED INTO ONE SUCH OFFERING BEING SOLICITED FOR SEVERAL €10K, within a database territory of over 40,000 other individuals!!
Furthermore, this is exactly what OneCon itself had obtained from other “Partnerships” with previously fallen scams, such as Conligus, UniverTeam, Bonifa and other scams had sold to Onecoin upon merger!
All OneCoinist believers are anxiously awaiting a future date of October 8th, 2018. Why? DO THEY CAN FINALLY SELL THEIR ILLIQUID COINS which done have been holding onto for up to 3years!
This will create a MASSIVE “Sell Wall” on that very day, more than 5x larger than the value and (open) market cap of over 1,200 cryptocurrencies presently listed and held.
That’s over €1 TRILLION EURO which can be expected to be dumped!!!
Unless there is an equilibrium of SELLERS to BUYERS, this spells INSTANT CRASH IN PRICE (and presumably Onecoin will be wiped off the face of the earth in a matter of hours on the trading block).
That’s when financial devastation, and yes, suicides begin being contemplated.
– OneCoins cannot be exchanged to any other currency on the planet.
– OneCoins cannot be exchanged from any other currency on the planet – you need to buy “educational package” from MLM company and then “mine” the coins.
– OneCoins can only be used in one closed marketplace that takes 25% “fee” of all transactions done in euros!
– OneCoin Ltd. has had 3 years to provide proof that they would even have a blockchain, yet they refuse to do so because “you have to trust the company”.
These four bullet points taken into account, why on earth would Nigerian Central Bank be willing to use OneCoin for anything rather than the proven and working alternatives?
Or one can even ask: why would ANYONE be willing to use OneCoin for anything rather than the proven and working alternatives?
The Nigerian government is indeed studying “blockchain technology” and cryptocurrency.
It is NOT studying OneCoin which has neither a blockchain or blockchain technology.
Nor, for that matter, does it in fact have a useable coin.
As far as OneCoin having a KYC policy, one of the main selling points of Bitcoin is that it DOESN’T have KYC and its’ users can therefore remain anonymous.
Can you please provide the source and context in writing of the alleged comments regarding the Central Bank. I am having some difficulty understanding what you and they mean by “already contemplating studying the Block Chain Technology and Crypto currency”.
Cryptocurrency jsut passed it’s ninth anniversary on 31st October when Satoshi issued his white paper . We still have not seen a credible white paper for OneCoin and the idea that it can be “finetuned”is ludicrous–See Otto’s fundamental points and there are many many more!!!
KYC has proven just to be a delaying tactic for Affiliates and even if it was a beneficial feature–why do you need to provide it again as part of this alleged ICO –Answer is confusion and mismanagement which are the true values of this sham
I suggest you close your downlines and repay your Investors and advise your friends accordingly.
Oz. Quite by chance I stumbled across a Mohammed Zafar who is a disqualified Company Director in the UK. Got an 11 year ban till 2019 for being an unfit Diirector.
I’m wondering if it’s a coincidence? Have the address and DOB but obviously can’t post them on here?
Can’t really say if it’s the same guy. Wouldn’t be surprised though.
Send him a note on FACEBOOK and ask him. Also advise Kieron Vaughn of london police and ask him to check.
the only time a scam uses KYC is when it’s almost over. You do realize KYC, if a real company is legit, is suppose to happen in the very beginning don’t you?
RUZA ARESTED IN GERMANY????
Not confirmed information.
Guys, there is a new article in Bulgarian – inlife.bg/%D0%BC%D0%B8%D0%BB%D0%B8%D0%BE%D0%BD%D0%B5%D1%80%D0%BA%D0%B0%D1%82%D0%B0-%D1%80%D1%83%D0%B6%D0%B0-%D0%B8%D0%B3%D0%BD%D0%B0%D1%82%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%B0-%D0%B0%D1%80%D0%B5%D1%81%D1%82%D1%83%D0%B2%D0%B0/.
It claims that Ruja Ignatova has been arrested in Germany. I have no idea if there is any truth to this “rumor” since the article has used its own “sources.”
No reply yet so I assume you have got the point whether you are genuine or not.
If Dr. Ruja is actually arrested, it would have made world news headlines. I hope it is not true. I pray earnestly too, that it is not true.
I cross my fingers and hope this IS TRUE. Because it would be a good new – end of the scam, no more losses.
However, I don’t expect worldwide media coverage in headlines. No matter how large this scam is, it is only a scam – and the scams don’t deserve publicity. A mention in “crimes” section is just enough!
TABOO -you should have been guided by your name-and not your god!
Mr Czech is right –in your world this is a big deal and I hope your downlines bring you and your other friends to account.
Still keep praying Taboo as you sound that kind of christian /muslim/jehovah’s witness/scientologist or whatever.
Money is like muck -it is only worth anything when it can be spread -regrettably there is no working exchange now and for the last 12 months and the next 12 -if this scheme survives life without Ruja.
Do not sound sadistic. You do not know the huge amount I have invested in this “OneCoin package”.
Please join me to pray that it is no scam, ’cause, if it is, then there is a big, big, loss. And with the Nigerian factor, it will be extremely difficult to recover monies from the One coin Doyen in Nigeria who is a high ranking Retired Military Officer.
Please join me to pray that the scheme is for real and that, the promised huge return on investment is not a facade. I went back to check my packages and only now, did I discovered that it was educational pack and not investment portfolios.
Has that ever worked for victims of a scam? I pray for you to gain wisdom in figuring out what to do rather than wishing for something that cannot be.
start dealing with your fate and as I have told you before complain to the authorities and seek money back from your doyen. It was never an educational service and if you have videos of your meetings check if this was ever said.
That is the protection that OneCoin scammers will use but any court will see through this . If you made a “huge investment” divide it by 5 and this is the repeat number of packages you bought eg 50 K bought you 10 sets of educational materials.
If you set up downlines and brought in others it is pyramid selling and I guess you know that . Just like your upline when he promised you huge returns –put the recruiters in jail and stop praying for a miracle.
I am a man of faith. I believe strongly that this nightmarish dream will soon fade away. Thank you for your advice.
I have started reaching out to some other investors on the issue. They are however opmistic that you were all hired prolific and very intelligent hack writers for Bitcoin.
