OneCoin digs up Veska Ignatova to headline “legend” event
Veska Ignatova has made her first public appearance at a OneCoin promotional event.
At the event hosted in Bucharest, Romania over this weekend, Ignatova was the headline speaker and corporate representative – a position that’s been vacant since the arrest of her son, Konstantin.
Appearing uninterested and at times uncomfortable, Ignatova shuffled onto the stage and rushed through her speech in four minutes.
The speech itself was unremarkable, full of promises OneCoin affiliates have been hearing for years.
- new DealShaker platform (this would be the third version of the failed ecommerce website)
- reintroduction of One Forex investment platform (failed 2018 project)
- mobile app revisions
- the promise of one million DealShaker and ten million affiliates (this has been a mantra for around three years)
- revised education packages to bundle with onecoin token investment
You can bet that any OneCoin investor watching the event would have traded all of the above for the ability to cash out their OneCoin tokens.
Withdrawals of OneCoin points collapsed in January 2017. Since then Veska (right) and her family have been keeping invested funds and only paying out recruitment commissions.
What’s truly remarkable about Ignatova’s appearance is that it happened at all. Ignatova’s son and daughter, Konstantin and Ruja, have been indicted in the US on fraud charges related to OneCoin.
Konstantin was arrested in March 2019. He plead guilty and is cooperating with US authorities.
Ruja was indicted in October 2017. After fleeing to Greece upon learning of her indictment that same month, she hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
Unofficially Ruja is believed to either be dead at the hands of the Russian mafia, or hiding in a country that lacks an extradition treaty with the US.
It is this backdrop that makes Veska’s appearance as the new public head of OneCoin truly remarkable.
Neither Konstantin or Ruja were mentioned in Veska’s speech. Their indictments and subsequent criminal cases were indirectly dismissed as “misunderstandings and lies”.
One can imagine the acknowledgement she’s abandoned her children to be the face of a flailing Ponzi scheme might have played into Veska’s deflated stage presence.
We’ll of course never know.
What I can tell you is OneCoin hasn’t hit rock bottom yet. Until the Russian mafia take to the stage, this is all just an end-game trailer.
Update 23rd August 2020 – A few hours after this article went live OneLife Australia deleted video of the “legend” event from their Facebook page.
I’m not aware of any other recordings of the event to link to.
Update #2 23rd August 2020 – A copy of Veska Ignatova’s speech is available courtesy of Crypto Xpose (multi-part).
I am still waiting for the TV show that details the “story” of OC. Wanna bet that the arrests, all the guilty pleas, Ruja’s disappearance, no blockchain ever hits the screen?
This is going to be pure fiction from start to finish, and packed with lies. Wonder how much time KJ will get in the video?
I know one thing a barf bag will be required to have in order to be able to watch it. But the faithful will eat it up. Isn’t this supposed to air in September, or was it at the end of this month? Been too long and I don’t recall when it was to be released.
On a side note, anyone know where her daughter is living (dad, grandmother, Ruja, surrogate who carried her to term)?
Isn’t the TV show based on the BBC podcast series? Or is this some investor-financed “tRuE sToRy!” knockoff that will be terrible?
Ruja’s daughter is presumed to be with her, assuming she isn’t dead. I’ve never seen anything official on what happened to the (then) baby.
No, this is the “official” OC story to be told by Veska to set the record straight about OC; and all the LIES that have been told about OC. All the obstacles they have had to overcome, all the people who tried to ruin OC with their greed (blame it on all the rogue major promoters) but how OC has overcome all of this. OC will be the Phoenix that arose from the ashes and succeeded.
I posted Veska’s speech here:
Most of the videos that were on the public FB groups are now gone.
Here is a YT copy of Veska’s appearance (as long as it works):
And here is the first hour of the event:
I hope somone finds a copy of the whole event.
Apparently, the scammers have vicked sense of humour, for they had chosen an instrumental version of Ozzy’s song “Crazy Train” as the theme song to launch the event. Truly the most insane are left on the OneCoin train. 😉
Everythig in that event video exudes cheesiness and awkwardness.
The IT company is so proud to be associated with OneCoin that they don’t even properly introduce themselves. I wonder is the “Vlad” even a real IT guy or just a paid actor like “Martin”.
Looks like a hostage video.
I identified one of the IT guys. There were 2 IT guys on stage:
The one with no glasses on the left called himself “Vlad”, but also the other one with glasses is Vladislav, Vladislav Velkov.
The left one who introduced himself as “Vlad” might be Vladislav Vasilev but not sure yet.
Anyway, about the guy with the glasses, Vladislav Velkov.
Here’s the info of him:
Face at the event:
Image from the event showing his email: vladislav(at)rightclick.bg
WhatsApp image (blurred family):
Vladislav Velkov LinkedIn:
CEO and Founder of Right Click ltd:
Chief Product Officer at Scaleforce.io:
Editor at medium:
Here are some more screen captures from the event during the IT-guys section which can be used to do some detective work.. 😉
Nice work WhisteBlowerFin.
The other IT guy is Vladislav Vasilev:
I can’t believe there are so immoral and greedy IT guys in Bulgaria, willing to work on fraud projects like these.
Here’s a clear picture of Vasilev in the event:
From Vladislav Vasilev’s FB page it can be seen he has a connection to Shivachi (Co-founder)
Vladislav Vasilev’s LinkedIn is here:
At the moment his LinkedIn says he is an Advisor at sofiastartup.com
This the Bulgarian entity for RightClick Ltd:
So the guy’s full name is Vladislav Alekseev Velkov. He is the sole owner of the firm. Vladislav Plamenov Vasilev was the manger of Right Click Ltd for two weeks in June 2016, until Velkov took the manager position again.
It seems from the Bulgarian commercial register filings that Right Click Ltd has been dormant since 2015. The filings show that in early 2020, they belatedly started to register financial statements for years 2014-2016.
Still at least couple of years missing to get up to date. Seems pretty fishy. It’s almost like they started to resurrect an old corporate entity after receiving a cash injection from Ignatov crime family.
Velkov also has a firm named Reklamen Butik Shivachi(bird.bg/tr?v=view&guid=204956332) with Vladimir Plamenov Vasilev — Vladislav’s brother it seems. Shivachi Design publically lists OneAcademy in their portfolio, see:
So the guys have history with the Ignatov crime family, Note also that in the FB photo OneCoin Squad Sofia linked to, Vasilev brothers and Velkov are with a guy who holds a paper with Shivachi logo on it.
Yeah… and auditorium of this global evenet consists of 20? 30? people sitting on scattered chairs to get the feeling of bigger crowd?
Funny to see (no) reaction of the auditorium at King James embarrassing attempt to make them clap their hands and move. So still and quiet…
Well at least they have an “family” head of company again, is Veska the first whit no prior criminal convictions to lead “OC” i wonder,
Being a shitty mum isn’t a criminal offence to my knowledge, but it would be a “real” statement for “the corp” to not have, for the first time, “x-con” “ignatova” at the helm….
Here is a quite long video of the event, but not complete as there was technical problems in the middle of the event with the stream.
For example Vladislav Vasilev talk just before Vladislav Velkov is missing from this video:
Here’s a video of the event which includes Vasilev, but not Velkov.
Social distancing innit.
All those videos we’ve seen over the years of a dozen half-dead people in a half-empty hotel conference room listening glassy-eyed to a Ponzi or pyramid scammer – turns out they were ahead of the curve all along.
There is no way Veska Ignatova is a “matriarch” of anything if she’s appearing in public. Pablo Escobar didn’t flog his own coke on street corners. She’s there under orders from whoever was really behind OneCoin.
Quite probably there were exactly 20, if they remained in compliance with COVID-19 measures that is.
According to the most current information I can find (on the website of the US embassy in Romania, ro.usembassy.gov/covid-19-information/), there is a maximum of 20 people allowed at “private indoor events”.
There’s also a general rule about keeping a distance of 1.5m, I don’t know if that applies to seating at such events, but how else are you going to place the chairs, with only 20 people in a space that’s much too big? (Even though it obviously isn’t that big a venue to begin with.)
I think OC are very thankful for those COVID-19 restrictions. For once they don’t have to lie or pretend, this puny little event was the biggest one they could organize legally.
In the partial video I’ve seen, I found the opening montage with footage from what they no doubt think of as their glory days quite entertaining. It really is amazing how they continue to show off Ruja, and even quote her reverently as if she’s the deceased founding prophet of their religion, without feeling any need to address her disappearance.
Among those clips, there are several from a 2015 event launching the Aurum Gold Coin, you can see that clearly on the backdrops – again, they don’t think anyone watching it will wonder what happened to that.
The whole thing is like a catalogue of broken promises – and then they start repeating some of those promises some more.
And then of course there’s Sebastian Greenwood appearing prominently. There’s even a glimpse of that other jailbird, Konstantin. Plus a lot of rats who’ve left the sinking ship since then. I spotted Igor Alberts for instance.
Of course, if they had tried to eliminate all embarrassing bits of their past, there wouldn’t be anything left to show. But it’s as if they expect everyone watching this to suffer from serious amnesia.
Does anybody recognize the jacket Veska is wearing? Looks *very* expensive.
In July 2019 I took a photo of Veska carrying 25.000 USD Hermes Birkin handbag. I guess this jacket must be in the same ballpark.
Mother has very expensive taste.
It certainly does look expensive! Three things come to mind.
1. Someone got scammed to pay for that;
2. She still looks like a Bulgarian rural babushka who got lucky at a rummage sale, just like she did in that pic you took of her with the Hermes bag.
You cannot buy class or gloss. She should have learn’t that from Ruja’s example; and
3. Flaunting that, the bag, the jewellery, etc, is an insult to every victim.
BTW: what happened after you got told by that excuse for a lawyer to take your pictures off your blog from Sofia and didn’t? I’m guessing nothing except that the shyster got paid with what he probably knows is stolen money
You’re right: nothing happened.
I’m not a lawyer, but I took those photos on public place, so there shouldn’t be any privacy issues. However, I promised to remove photos from my blogpost if these persons e-mail me personally and ask for it.
None of them did. Photos remained and Norwegian lawyer hasn’t contacted me anymore.
About Veska’s presentation: it’s hard to see she had anything to gain by appearing publicly. She certainly wasn’t enjoying it and seemed to be almost reluctant.
Could it be that she is being blackmailed (“if you don’t co-operate, we will harm your daughter/grand daughter here in ….”)? Clearly she is not the mastermind behind this scam.
I support the “didn’t want to be there so was forced” theory. Veska looked like someone dumped a bucket of sand downstairs.
Do it, or hell’se ze leetle one ghets it.
Veska is not the mastermind, but she is imo the current operational head of the Sofia office and the public “OneCoin corporate”.
From whom she takes orders, difficult to say, but there’s billions of money involved in this scam.
So, Velkov was asked in WhatsApp does he want to comment regarding working for OneCoin.
“I assume you are mistaken because our company is just a service business that provides IT services and OneCoin is just our customer, to whom we have made brand new systems, as well as a real blockchain.
I find their intentions adequate and that they want to improve their reputation by investing in rebranding their image and creating real value from now on.
I think they have learned their mistake and are acting relevantly at the moment.”
My question to Velkov is, does he he really believe OneCoin/OneLife is stopping to announce their own fake “value” on their OneLife MLM website??? How’s the fake value of a fake sh1tcoin going to change magically to real value, if you put a sh1tcoin to a real blockchain??
Members have tens of billions of Onecoins on their accounts having fake value of several TRILLION euros. How the f is that gonna magically change to real value..? Are you serious, Velkov???
^ Correction, that’s Vasilev’s response in Facebook messenger. Not Velkov’s in Whatsapp.
Sorry for the mix up.
“creating real value from now on” – after two fake blockchains OneLife will create real value in the future? LOL. Third blockchain with 2x number of coins but without changing the value of the coin? 2 x LOL.
Cryptoqueen Ruja missing and her brother in jail in US, and these guys are talking about “improve the reputation”. Billions of euros are missing. Triple-LOL. All Velkov et al. are doing is destroying their own reputation.
1) What happens to the accounts that have not filled their credentials to the “migration page” by tomorrow 12:00 pm GMT? Will their accounts be just deleted from old system and all OneCoins gone with them?
2) After the migration to “new system” and real blockchain, will everybody be able to sell their coins (crash of value) or are they just supposed to celebrate the fact they can see their account balance in a “blockchain explorer”, with no help on actually selling the coins?
Supposedly: RE:Q#1 – €30 fee for “Customer Support” migrating your account after that brief window/ deadline (according to unannounced/ inside source)
RE: Q#2 – they can supposedly send them peer-to-peer, meaning that any black market or shoddy exchange can open them up and list them, thereby driving the price to zero, where it belongs, very soon after any such functionality exists.
If a true open market were to be created, as described above, within a few days of ”price discovery” ranked members would dump and flood the market, DealShitter would shut down and the remaining cult believing victims holding their bags would, for the first time ever, come to the realization that no one outside the Mickey Mouse club and cult sect was interested in their Ponzi points.
I rather have them be listed in an exchange where the users of the exchange make buying orders and/or accept selling offers. Because:
– Anon1: “Selling 100 OneCoins for $39 a piece!”
– Anon2: “Also selling OneCoins for $39 a piece!”
– Buyers: *crickets*
– Anon1: “Selling for $29 a piece!”
– Anon2: “Selling for $25!”
– Anon1: “Selling for $24!”
– Anon2: “Selling for $23!”
– Anon3: “Buying 100 OneCoins for $10 apiece.”
– Anon1: “SOLD!”
– Anon3: “Selling 100 OneCoins for $11 apiece.”
– Anon3: “No? How about $10 apiece?”
– Anon3: “How about $9 apiece?”
– Anon4: “Buying 100 OneCoins for $5 apiece.”
– Anon3: “SOLD!”
– Anon2: “Wait… Why is OneCoin price listed as $5 / ONE?”
To be clear: the previous example would continue until those who originally bought first batch Onecoins for 0,05€ / ONE will sell their lot for what they paid for it. That’s the value of OneCoin in free market.
It’s entirely hypothetical, but I can think of one reason why Veska, and the few other people left in Sofia, are, so visibly without any enthousiasm, pretending to carry on with OC.
I seriously doubt there’s a significant amount of money still coming in, new recruitment must have dried up quite a while back. Yet they’re spending money – those shady software developers aren’t working for free, and if they have any sense have insisted on being paid in advance.
Even that pathetic ‘event’ cost something. So why are they wasting some of the money they’ve left in this way?
I think the explanation could be that they’re essentially constructing an alibi. Veska et.al. must know that they’re still at a significant risk of facing the law themselves, if some European authorities finally wake up, or the US authorities extend their range of targets.
Not everyone is able or willing to do a Ruja and just disappear. Simply abandoning everything and letting the companies be dissolved in the course of time, as they no longer keep up the regular legal requirements, could also have inconvenient consequences. That often works for small-time scams, but they’re too high profile.
Even in Bulgaria, authorities would come under some pressure to investigate. They must try to find a a way to wrap up everything neatly, legally.
The standard excuse for people who’ve been undeniably involved in selling a Ponzi scheme, once it’s collapsed, is claiming that they never knew it was a criminal scheme, and that they’re themselves among the victims of the evil people behind it all, who are now on the run or in prison, not their accomplices.
If they’d just called it a day when Konstantin and Greenwood were arrested, or even before that, when Ruja went into hiding, that would be ample proof that they knew it was a scam all along, and that the game was up. By their feeble attempts to keep the show going, they’re trying to build up plausible deniability.
With no or almost no money still coming in, it’s also quite probable that no more money is disappearing into their own pockets, so on paper it may now well look like a legitimate (if struggling) business. All responsibility for the past can be put on people conveniently no longer there.
If this supposed new software (who cares if it’s an actual blockchain or not?) finally introduces the ability to transfer coins between holders (that one most fundamental requirement to call something a cryptocurrency OC always lacked), that will inevitably lead to a market of sorts emerging, and the price immediately going to 0 where it belongs.
Once that has happened, and with sales of ‘educational packages’ formally down to 0 as well, they have the perfect excuse to let the corporate entities go bankrupt, and present OC as just a sadly failed business venture, based on a great idea but the victim of all the past criminal activity they never knew was going on, instead of a scam in which they were full, knowing participants.
So, that’s my hypothesis: what we’re seeing is really an extended exit scam, only carried out to try and avoid criminal prosecutions, not to make off with more money – anything worth stealing has probably been gone for quite a while.
This applies to Veska and her little gang in Sofia. It doesn’t really explain what could motivate Cordel James and the few people like him still out in the field. Alhough sheer stupidity and delusionality no doubt plays a role in it.
@Otto your example would end very quickly because there aren’t simply that many buyers for *any* price vs supply.
@PassingBy Authorities in Bulgaria won’t do anything, unless under extreme outside pressure, until Borisov is gone.
Hell, even the Prosecutor’s office of Bulgaria removed the news about the OneCoin Sofia office raid pretty soon after releasing it. And nothing is found using “onecoin” as a search keyword anymore in the prosecutor’s office website.
Web archive still finds the old announcement regarding the Sofia office raid released by the Bulgarian prosecutor’s office in January 2018.
Relying on Bulgarian authorities is hopeless as long as Boyko Borisov is the PM. OneCoin paid enough to secure its safe heaven in Bulgaria as long as Borisov’s corrupted mafia style system is in place.
Borisov going is curtains. Sorry, Veska. Like with every power change there will be a reaction against the easy targets who can’t fight back and people who stick out. Bye.
Well, the fact that there was a raid shows there are people within the Bulgarian law enforcement system wanting to go after them.
That nothing further happened shows that they have friends in the right places (and we know the links with Borisov are very direct). That also means that once those friends are no longer there, they’re in serious trouble.
But one thing they must know is still possible, regardless of who’s in power in Bulgaria, is that some other EU country could finally go after them. If they issue a European Arrest Warrant for, say, Veska, extradition is automatic, not even being best buddies with Borisov changes that.
So Veska has every interest in, for a little while, keeping up the pretence that OC is a legitimate business which became the victim of a few crooks (now removed), and then shutting things down as if it were a failed business, rather than an abandoned criminal enterprise.
The oneacademy and Dealshaker web pages still show the counter towards “end of migration”, but it has been counting negative numbers for over a day now.
The OneLife website shows a big banner “migration is completed!” (apparently the proofreading is being outsourced to a Nigerian prince), but if you click on the “login button”, you get a page saying “default backend – 404” (and literally nothing else).
The handling of their websites is embarrassing at best (all other websites, such as oneforex.eu, throw error 522 or error 524, implying the servers have been plugged off from the Internet).
A one-person startup can handle website update more professionally and these crooks imply they are building “the future of payments”.
@PassingBy: I have a much simpler theory. Veska and co are keeping the rump of OC going because it is still bringing in money.
Even if the inflow is a thousandth of what it was in OC’s glory days, that’s still seven figures a year. Most scams would count that an amazing success.
Staff costs may still be pretty high but the dogsbodies (receptionists, IT support etc) are probably being paid in hot air.
As long as there’s enough coming in to pay Veska and co more than minimum wage, they’ll keep it going. What else are they going to do, work at McDonald’s?
I don’t buy the idea that they’re continuing to run a scam because the longer they do so the less chance they have of landing in jail.
If a) OC wasn’t making money, albeit less money and b) its caretakers hadn’t deluded themselves they were in a legitimate business (I don’t believe either of those premises is true), a much better exit strategy would be to play whistleblower.
correct, but only if the “unmined” amounts are looked away from he market, othervise “somoene” will just flood the market whit “free coins” willing to sell for any amount usually 1sat (until demand is filled, a thousend times over).
when swisscoin hit the market and the “company” realized it wouldent moon just becuse of scammers hyping it on facebook….
and ponzipimps and scammerbosses arent known for playing the longgame when thers a last ditch effort monygrab.
I am really impressed about how well Finns and some other people “know” Bulgaria and its politicians, even the prosecution… Like they are the one to be blamed for your stupidity to invest in a Ponzi scheme…
Of course politics is not the direct reason if someone invested in a ponzi scam, but Borisov’s corruption system in Bulgaria is the reason why OneCoin is still happily operating from there.
Maybe you are right, but what about the other countries from the EU, including Finland?
As far as I know the whole world has been affected by the same scam and except USA no other country is taking serious action on OneCoin promoters.
Be sure that the remaining members of Ignatov family could travel to any EU country without bothering that they could be detained/arrested by the local authorities. I am not sure only about Germany.
Yeah it’s a very pathetic situation across the EU. AFAIK only Germany has a public open investigation against the OneCoin company and its employees by Bielefeld prosecutor ongoing. Of course practically none of the members are even aware of this.
IMA cases are not going well in EU either. And OneLife IMAs have actually won couple of cases regarding MLM marketing in Germany. These were of course hyped as an indication that OneCoin is not a scam. Of course in many other IMA cases in which IMAs were sentenced to prison, it was a “dirty IMA nothing to do with OneCoin”.
IMO the German ongoing investigation in Bielefeld has made a fundamental mistake, because it seems they are stuck with the Blockchain-issue according to this article:
Maybe the situation will clear when Greenwood and Konstantin will be sentenced.
From fraud investigation point of view, it’s a complete side-issue if there’s a real blockchain or not. IMO It’s mostly a marketing issue as OneCoin was marketed as a cryptocurrency with a blockchain.
Regardless if there’s a blockchain or not, OneCoin is still a ponzi-type of fraud scheme which declares its ever increasing coin value only on its own MLM website, and sells packages which generate coins at fraction of the price compared to the declared euro “value” announced on the OneLife MLM website.
Anyone know who the guy was that introduced Veska on stage?
They do. Vladislav Velkov was the author of the Ravenr website, which said “Design by Shivachi”. This was early 2016.
Thanks for pointing this out. I checked, and here is the proof:
Vladislav Velkov’s full name is still present in the hidden html metadata on the ravenr.com website (visible with F12/Developer Tools in any browser):
The OneCoin-OneLife scammers are using Microsoft Azure services now for onelife.eu
See host info: securitytrails.com/list/apex_domain/onelife.eu
I made a Twitter thread about this here:
In that Twitter thread Azure support has asked to submit abuse report on this address:
I have already submitted mine.
This DKT # 314 is likely Konstantin Ignatov’s change of plea transcript:
(Not available on Courtlistener yet. )
I don’t think it was there before. The August 14th transcript entry (courtlistener.com/docket/15688339/united-states-v-scott/) is probably related to its appearence.
#314 is not public on PACER yet either. Just now tried.
I wonder if that hurts Ruja more than it does Scott.
Really makes you wonder how much they have stashed away.
The best stuff is in the Exhibits, especially the money flow diagrams starting at Page 130 and the timeline starting at Page 154.
Gonna have dinner then I’ll get stuck into it 😀
It looks like every OneCoin member phone number with the associeted name can be openly found from the new OneLife platform.
At 46:30 timemark:
Even some Ruja’s and Sebastian phone numbers are shown.
Could someone who has access to the new OneLife system check if this is “OneCoin phone book” really wotks as it seem.
This looks like a demo of their new Production environment after the migration to the new platform. If it works like this indeed, the new IT team has done an incredible job by making the new system very user friendly.
Well done guys!
OneCoin the Bitcoin killer!
(please take this post with a grain of salt)
(Darth Vader voice): “The sarcasm is strong in this One.”
OneCoin’s data security was even worse than my observation in comment #55 indicated.
It appears that wide range of user data of every member was left unprotected by the Velkov’s amateurish IT team, and now account details of top leaders are circulating on the internet:
So the migration process to the new OneLife platform probably hasn’t been fully GDPR compliant. 😉 Perhaps it will be GDPR sanctions that will finally kill Onecoin.
The company hasn’t issued any notification to the members alerting about the embarassing and serious data breach.
Our group has downloaded account data of more than 2.2 million Onecoin members: userId, full names, email addresses and telephone numbers. Some of these data are empty or clearly fake, but > 90% seems to be accurate.
With the members’ userId a 2nd API could be called, which revealed even more personal data: full name, full address, birthdate, birthplace!
This wasn’t even a security breach, as there was no security at all. Logging in and using some basic tools to call their APIs was sufficient.
Unfortunately for us (but fortunately for the victims), the IT amateurs have repaired their most stupid mistakes already. Both APIs are not usable anymore, because they result in “403 Forbidden”.
A 3rd API is still working. This one reveals the complete binary structure of the pyramid. Surprise, surprise, Ruja Ignatova with userId 1 is at the very top (level 0) of this pyramid, the “/” or “root”.
Sebastian Greenwood with userId 3 is at level 1 directly below Ruja.
Contrary to the lousy suckers in above Facebook group who have started a witch hunt by revealing personal data, we will not share our results with anyone except legal authorities.
I’ve had some readers contact with with regards to the leak.
Yeah I ain’t going near any leaked personal info.
Yes, it’s hard to call it even a hack, because there was nothing that NEEDED to be hacked. Anybody could see this information from browser with a small trick, the IT team is just absolutely incompetent.
But what lousy there is to reveal data from the biggest OneCoin scammers? The authorities especially in Europe have got absolutely nothing done in 6 years against these MLM scammers.
London police even stopped investigation against their local UK scammers. Victims are different, but these MLM promoters marketing and selling this fraud scheme need to be revealed. No “witch hunt” in that.
We have no mercy at all with these blatant scammers.
But the main issue with witch hunts like this one, as an outsider in most cases you simply have no clue about the accuracy of personal data in the Onecoin scam databases.
For instance, even *if* scammers have filled in their correct address data and/or telephone numbers initially, they can have moved or switched phone numbers.
Which means that sooner or later you will publish personal data that are completely wrong, outdated or otherwise inaccurate. You simply should not take that risk.
(We stop the discussion at this point.)
All of these big promoters still marketing and selling OneCoin/OneLife KNOW that they are selling something which has been stated to be a “massive international fraud scheme” by US DOJ. Of course there’s the Konstantin’s guilty plea and 3 days testifying too on record publicly available too.
These biggest MLM promoters are not any innocent people that are being “witch hunted”. They are selling and promoting a huge multi-billion dollar ponzi fraud scheme STILL to ignorant victims. And authorities haven’t got so far anything done in stopping this scam in 6 years.
If even SDNY court would have released even a short video records of Konstantin testifying, this scam would have collapsed. But no..
The data should be also shared with responsible and respected journalists like Jamie Bartlett who are working on the story. Authorities likely aren’t much interested in it anyway — they’ll just sit on it.
It would be nice if a complete pyramid structure with Ruja on top could be constructed from the data. Solely the names on it might reveal some interesting things or point to new leads. There could be a good public interest rationale to publish stories from the data.
E.g, if Ruja is number 1 and Sebastian number 3, then who is number 2? Watching the early OneCoin presentations carefully, I’d say there is good reason to think it is probably Juha Parhiala, who is effectively — and largerly un-credited — “Founder-3” of OneCoin. It’d be nice to have the data to back this up.
Or perhaps the number 2 is Boyko Borisov. Or Taki. Or Peevski. Or some Russian oligarch/silovik. 😉
“The data should be also shared with responsible and respected journalists like Jamie Bartlett who are working on the story. Authorities likely aren’t much interested in it anyway — they’ll just sit on it. ”
Exactly. Even before this leak, the authorities had at least similar but older information. But many OneLife MLM scammers keep marketing and selling this fraud scheme still.
It’s understandable that for example the London police can’t properly investigate the actual OneCoin company operating in Bulgaria, but they really should at least go after the MLM scammers who are STILL selling this proven massive billion dollar fraud scheme around the world.
There should definitely be GDPR sanctions againt OneCoin.
At the same time the authorities could notice that OneCoin is operating against the new EU AMLD5 directive.
According to the AMLD5 directive, entities which are in charge of holding, storing and transferring virtual currencies in EU, are now covered by the same regulatory requirements as banks and other financial institutions, including registering with financial authorities.
OneCoin has of course not registered with financial authorities and it is breaking also the EU’s AMLD5 directive. Even though Onecoin is a fake crypto with fake value, it can be still considered a “virtual currency”, at thus it is breaking the AMLD5 directive.
So now there are 2 more angels given on a plate for EU authorities regarding the OneCoin scam; GDPR sanctions and breach of the AMLD5 directive. Can EU authorities NOW act against OneCoin already. Enough is enough.
@Semjon – RE:

@OnecoinsWorstNightmare – Not to invoke the continuation of discussion, but just to air some information in terms of sharing content against the biggest criminals and liars:
Just to come clean, I republished some info on 4 people: Kamran Hye, Jose Gordo, Cordel James, and Marian Murphy. I think that’s it.
RE: Kamran Hye: A reliable source corroborated information from my mobile carrier’s security and fraud department that the sophisticated phone hacking I suffered earlier this year was perpetrated by Kamran Hye due to maintaining some public focus on exposing him on social media (and on the BBC Podcast). So, fuck that guy.
Incidentally, I found out from my mobile fraud department that the attack was “the most sophisticated SIM swap attack they’d ever seen,” which consisted of over half-a-dozen remote ‘swaps’ within a very short span of time (like 20 minutes).
They couldn’t figure out how/ why, and I was at the highest level of the Dept.. As such, I was offered “an executive protection” against further attacks, reserved usually for political figures (Lol) – and accepted.
RE: Jose Gordo & Cordel James: I have enough solid reasoning to suspect one (or both) of them of being behind one (of several) brutal death threats I’ve received, presumably in attempt to frighten and silence me.
Here was the introductory message I received (which later claimed that he was hired to “eliminate me for costing people a lot of money”):
Sooo, anyway, this is how they play ball. And remember the public shooting range video and general threats King made.
Marian Murphy is the Irish Energizer Bunny version of Ken Labine, constantly lying and calling everyone else liars, and has been carrying the flag for the zombies for at least. 3 years. She was also a Bitconnect investor and vigorously defended that scam even well AFTER the collapse(!!). But, additionally, she’s a serial scammer, herself, having at least one or two other Ponzi’s she’s been behind.
So, while I understand your sentiment and respect your candid and professional approach, in my defense, over the past 5 1/2 years of insanely radical abuse, threats, the doxing of my own private information and that of my family’s (incl. addresses, pictures, etc., attached to false defamations) …and as well as a fucking bullshit Federal Lawsuit; I’m not against applying a bit of fire against fire (particularly AFTER the security vulnerability had already been patched).
Sorry for the vent, but I wanted to at least explain my position.
Regardless, I thank your group for doing God’s work.
Watch out Kari boy has surfaced from the sewers again pimping some unicorn crap, amazing, fantastic, 10,000 people already sign up yawnnnnn.
Thanks for your explanation Tim and WhistleBlowerFin.
Sorry for the “lousy suckers” remark. We take that back, it was useless anyway.
This is an interesting idea and we are considering that option indeed.
a. The BBC have very strict rules and procedures regarding the usage of personal data, which might prevent them from using anything we have collected.
b. Contributing to a new “Missing Cryptoqueen” episode is a tempting idea, but difficult to implement when you want to stay anonymous, including voice.
Of course voice distortion tools can be used, but that is “torture” for the listeners.
So this will probably not happen.
Loving your work. Keep those scammers on their toes. They are beyond reproach.
The BBC idea is excellent. The BBC of course cannot reveal personal data but what they can do is use it to cross-check what they’re told in checking the legitimacy of something or the truthfulness of what they’ve been told.
The BBC has also made extensive use of voice actors on the series for people who didn’t want their identities revealed.
Could #2 not be Konstantin? Nigel left very early on.
I was thinking that it would be Gilbert Armenta. Wasn’t he listed as #2 who had pled guilty and was working with the authorities early on before his name was released?
Konstantin wasn’t there at the start. He had a low-paid job in a warehouse (Porsche’s spare parts depot, IIRC). Ruja hired him as her personal assistant after OC had already been going for a while, because none of the people she’d employed in that capacity before could put up with her.
People who were around in the earlier stages assumed him to be nothing more than a sort of bodyguard (I seem to remember Igor Alberts using words to that effect), and were extremely surprised when he was wheeled out as the supposed new leader after her disappearance.
I’m actually rather surprised that Ruja is in there at all. All the money put in essentially became her personal property, there’s no practical reason for her to be in a database of people’s positions in the pyramid – she owned the whole pyramid.
The BBC already tortured us with that Ken Labine clip. You can’t sound any worse than that.
This is the tip of the iceberg. A lot of details are left out, for instance the Date/Timestamp of Account creation, starting at 7 August 2014.
“id”: primary identifier of an Account.
“parentId”: refers to (Account)id one level up in the pyramid, which is a binary tree.
“uplinkId”: (Account)id of the Sponsor. We assume that this relationship is/was required to calculate the Bonuses.
“path”: indicates the placement of the Account in the pyramid. “/” is the root, i.e. the very top. “/1/” is the spot in the left leg of root, “/2/” is the right leg of root.
If Oz is okay with content like this @Oz please let us know what you will allow, we can publish some more details later today, but this will not be done before 22:00 UTC.
Only “familiar names” that are already mentioned at least once on behindmlm will be fully exposed. Including Nigel Allan, Juha Parhiala, Jose Gordo, Muhammad Zafar, among others.
Other/unfamiliar names will be indicated by initials only.
So long as it’s general information it’s fine.
Anything specific (hello GDPR or stolen personal details) and I’ll have to cut it out.
Upline/downline stuff with names and country of residence is fine.
OK this is perfectly doable. Compared to above example only Date/Timestamps of Account creation will be added and – where relevant – some non-specific references to email addresses, i.e. no complete email addresses, but only references to domain names like onecoin.eu
ETA: Tuesday 15 September 21:00 UTC at the latest.
Ruja owns at least 2 big accounts. First is number 1 and the second is positioned not far below.
Is it possible to find the serial fraudster and high earner Udo Carsten Deppisch, who was involved from the start and later left the sinking ship in time?
To my knowledge, he was in several positions in the system.
Just do the interview via text chat and have an actor play you for the podcast. Kidnapper-style robotic voices are a stylistic choice for a pre-recorded podcast.
Not difficult to find as he lives in open luxury in Dubai in the Emirates and he is actively recruiting and building another scam Crowd1. He works from an office at the Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Centre.
Once or twice a week he eats his favorite pasta at Cipriani Dubai, while smoking 100$ cigars and drinking the most expensive wines.
So if you need to settle a score and get back your money you need to be on a flight soon.
Please don’t forget the Steinkellers need being outed. As Teflon Simon Le seems to have moved on, he perhaps needs some air.
Konstantin, if he has been 100% truthful in the Scott matter, should have nothing to fear. And of course Juha.
Kari Wahrloos (the mighty chicken).
Unfortunately, after four hours of cutting and pasting, we have come to the conclusion that the idea we had in mind will not result in a pyramid structure that is presentable in a readable (text) format.
Nothing is wasted and the pyramid data are very interesting for sure, so “something” will be produced, but not before above deadline.
Oh the irony. 😀
The new OneLie Newsletter arrived this morning.
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.”
@ OneCon Squad Sofia
The typical OL believer doesn’t know anything about the breach. If they dare ask they’re told the usual about bitter ex-staff, traitors, thieves, etc.
How can I contact you?
In no way actually.
Unless you provide an unexpected and extremely good reason why we should do this, then maybe …
Could you contact me again, sorry I missed your previous mails and that disposable mail is probably not working anymore..
Need to talk to you about coordination of sharing the data with authorities in different countries.
Gut feeling that different people/groups have found the same weaknesses. Predictable, because it was (and still is) way too simple.
Anyway, there is no reason to coordinate or cooperate. Let everyone who found something useful send their own finds to the authorities, they’ll know how to deal with it.
Please contact, it’s about authorities.. Can’t discuss it here.
OnecoinsWorstNightmare what do you mean no reason to cooperate? The whole point of fighting scams is to cooperate. That’s why we share information here.
The scammers cooperate too. There’s no way to win the fight against scams especially as resiliant as OneCoin without cooperation. That’s the whole point how to fight scams: cooperate against it.
You probably have a valid point, but the only way that cooperation can have any value in this case, is to share (and combine), the data that have been collected by different groups of people.
As far as our group is concerned this is not going to happen.
The data that we have collected, especially the names, email addresses and telephone numbers of 2.2 million Onecoin members (the majority of them being scam victims) are too sensitive to be shared with any “citizens”.
NB: If we would collaborate with journalists, we would also hide/mask all sensitive data.
@OnecoinsWorstNightmare It’s idiotic to discuss this in public, but I have no other chance as you refuse to contact now for some reason.
My main concern is that all the data goes to the correct contacts and that you have these correct contacs, and that they know it’s coming and what it is.
First priorities would be SDNY Attourney Office, FBI and CoLP. It seems they have not yet been provided this full data.
Can you please contact me, because it’s stupid to discuss this in public. Thanks.
Idiotic or hilarious, you name it. But this is probably what you can expect when you apparently offer some uninvited progress control on behalf of other people.
No doubts at all though about your good intentions and curious what you have to say. However we don’t use Facebook or Twitter for OC matters and don’t have your email either.
An attempt to reach you via “the other guy” more than five hours ago was unsuccessful so far.
But this might be caused by the same issue that was already clearly explained by Juha Parhiala, when he responded to Onecoin members who complained about their cancelled sell orders on the Onecoin Exchange:
@OnecoinsWorstNightmare I don’t understand what is your problem. You either do what you say or not, but it doesn’t help anybody to write empty messages publicly.
Your “group” knows very well my email is (removed) it’s been here before, but I don’t read it that often, so I’d prefer communication via protonmail.
And if you advertize giving the full data to authorities and being “OnecoinsWorstNightmare”, then let’s do it and not just talk empty talks publicly.
Taking down OneCoin is not supposed to be any competition anyway, or who has the “best group” etc.. There’s no room for arrogance in this. OneCoin has been operating too long already.
@OnecoinsWorstNightmare Sorry I read your message wrong. I have some frustration because there are several things which are not progressing as efficiently as they could.
I thought you are MikeR or at least connected to him so you would know how to contact me other than Twitter. The good thing though is OneCoin’s sites are total mess.
My email is (removed).
@OnecoinsWorstNightmare got your disposable email from the middle man. And emailed you. The middle man is too busy nowadays..
I left those emails up overnight. Figure whoever was supposed to see them has seen them by now.
Confirmed. Thanks Oz.
Any updates on this “something”?
Yes, but the answer will probably not be satisfying. This announcement, that sounded like a promise, in post #86 will not have a follow-up on behindmlm.
1. Too time consuming.
2. The possibilities for presenting this extensive information here in a legible way are too limited.
3. But most importantly: the user and pyramid/tree data are too “sensitive” for publication on the open internet.
The collected data will be shared with some representatives of legal authorities only, no exceptions at all.
Thanks for the update. I understand and respect your decision, but is there no chance of publishing at least some limited/vague overview of the data? Perhaps the tip of the pyramid only to some limited degree?
Or I’d appreciate if you could — without necessarily going into too much detail — elaborate on the question like why you deem the pyramid data “too sensitive” — is it for general privacy concerns or because it reveals some interesting new names? Are the people in the pyramid structure solely OneCoin promoters or were positions also given to people such as OneCoin employees, Ruja’s friends, Bulgarian politicians-officials and/or money launderers? Does the stucture reveal anachronisms (such as Konstantin on top levels) indicating data tampering/overwriting?
Altough “close to unknown” (in the early stages of the scam) Konstantin is on the top of the pyramid, it does not prove any data tampering. He can join (or be joined) silently. Family is family.
And of course, it does not eliminate the chance he’s got that cushy position later.
PARALLEL TO THE FORMER COMMENTS: Narod(.)bg claims to have an investigator who has revealed that *Ruja * was paying *BOYKO BORISOVA* (two-time Prime Minister) and other Bulgarian officials upwards of $100,000 p/mo to look the other way while Onecoin scammed the world (!)
What’s the deal with Narod? I’m getting Gerlach Report vibes with respect to authenticity.
Yeah. Not sure. Sensational, but am Just relaying.
Will try to contact them later this week maybe, to try figure out their deal.
Narod.bg come on guys.. Fake news hello!
Regarding the news, it would be more sensational if OneCoin didn’t pay Boyko Borisov .
So there’s no news in that. But if it could be somehow proven, that would be good.
Narod.bg definitely gives Gerlachreport vibes. It seems to be a newly established blog masquerading as a news outlet. The lack of transparency with the lonely gmail address in the contact info page speaks volumes.
The domain data reveals that some other fake news sites have been hosted on same ip. Such as telgraf.bg which was part of a strange episode which led to troubles for the real news outlet: monitor.bg/bg/a/view/telegraf-podlojen-na-represija-167236
Like Gerlachreport, it probably mixes fact, fiction, rumour and speculation to produce those kind of sensational articles. As well as creating ad revenue, it might be part of PR/propaganda battle within the corrupt Bulgarian elite.
I don’t believe they have real sources, but produced a “fake news” story which is broadly in line with what is known and rumoured.
The main allegations of the cited article are not that outlandish given that the SDNY prosecutors are on public record saying/indicating OneCoin bribed Bulgarian officials and that VIS gangsters like Taki are OneCoin’s background figures. But there is no reason to believe the allegations based on the Narod article.
From what I see Cryptoqueen is user number 1
The plumber and serial fraudster Udo Carsten Deppisch claims:

Two former OneCoin fraudsters from Austria no longer accept the worthless OneCoin on their portal megabigdeals.at! Here is a recent screenshot:
For comparison! This is what the page looked like just a few months ago:
In the past, the imprint also contained the photos of the former OneCoin scammers Stephan Gruber and Stefan Wetzelberger:
The domain registration of megabigdeals.at:
The German fraud portal info-coin.de has not been available for several weeks. The operators are the OneCoin fraudsters Sebastian Burger and Wolfgang Bäuml:
Sebastian Burger is extremely active in the OneCoin scam. Although OneCoin is banned in Germany since April 2017, he travels around Germany promoting the scam.
Is Sebastian Burger proud of this worthless “certificate” from the criminal Ruja Ignatova (Founder & CEO)?
In this video the fraudulent “Captain” Cordel KingJayms James from Trinidad and Tobago also explicitly mentioned the German fraudster Sebastian Burger.
In the video the names of OneCoin scammers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland were mentioned. Unfortunately the video has since been removed.
A very active OneCoin scammer in Germany is Florian Pürner from Etzelwang. He is the operator of the fraud portal coin-blog.de.
I was about to check out his latest lies, but it just shows me:
What happened now? His website was blocked in June 2020. This nasty OneCoin scammer answered my question via email like this:
A section on his idiotic OneCoin blog was titled:
This idiot calls himself “Founder and managing director” on XING. Since when does a blog on the Internet have a managing director?
I only noticed that Florian Pürner has poor command of the German language in terms of expression and spelling. A typical victim for any further fraud.
Anyone who was lured into the OneCoin fraud by Florian Pürner should know his contact details!
Addition to comment #117
In the video, Cordel KingJayms James also mentions a man named “Emil”.
Specifically, this means the OneCoin fraudster Emil Blumer (Blumer International Consulting), the DealShaker Country-Manager for Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
Emil Blumer is also mentioned as a member of the “Co-Captains Board”!
Emil Blumer is also the operator of the eagledreamteam.ch portal.
The so-called “imprint” of this website is ridiculous and does not comply with the regulations in force in Europe!
This telephone number is mentioned on the Emil Blumer website:
After being promoted to “Country-Manager”, OneCoin scammer Emil Blumer was very active. Here is an excerpt from his calendar of events in May 2020.
TODAY’S HOT NEW ONECOIN PONZI FRAUD NEWS UPDATE!!!!
Migliaccio & Rathod LLP (located in Washington DC) is currently investigating TD Bank over allegations that it put consumers at risk by facilitating a fraudulent cryptocurrency scheme.
TC Note: I cannot personally vouche for the Law Firm, but it appears to be legit
Addition to comment #120
OneCoin fraudster Emil Blumer from Switzerland is also a member of the so-called “Core Team”.
I’d never heard the name TD Bank, but the internet told me it’s the American subsidiary of a Canadian bank, Toronto-Dominion. Now that name immediately rang a bell. They have form in facilitating massive money laundering schemes.
TD played a major part in the Stanford Financial Group scam, a massive Ponzi scheme that collapsed in 2009 when it was seized by US authorities. The only reason Allen Stanford’s name isn’t as well-known as Bernie Madoff’s is that the collapse came a year after Madoff’s, and thus only ranked as the second biggest Ponzi scheme in US history.
As his main corresponding bank, TD were Stanford’s conduit into the legitimate international banking world, where otherwise, as an initially tiny bank from a dubious Caribbean jurisdiction, he’d have had a hard time getting a foothold. They also continued to provide him with their services for years, after other banks had quietly dropped him, even completely ignoring warnings from their own staff.
A documentary about Allen Stanford and his “bank” was broadcast on the German TV station ZDF. You can still see it on YouTube.
TD Bank is huge in the US, where I live. There are over a dozen branch offices within 20 miles of my home. I’ve never had an account with them, and never will after reading all this. Sheesh.
Here is their (ironic) slogan:
TD Bank, N.A. (North America) has 26,000 employees; it’s a major international bank. Some high-ranking employees in their fraud department have a lot to answer for on this one.
It appears that as soon as TD Bank found out about the OneCoin connection, they terminated the accounts and sent cease & desist letter to Armenta.
See the Exhibit A in this document:
Btw, the Exhibit B of that filing is an interesting document too.
I previously uncovered that Mark Scott, Gilber Armenta, William Morro and Diane Cook used Georgian branch offices to launder SpotFN criminal proceeds:
As it happens, these three supposedly Armenta-associated firms mentioned in the Exhibit B letter happen to have Georgian branch offices too:
Soleymew Management Ltd
Shureden Services Ltd
Water-Tidal Services Ltd
I dug the filings from Georgian business register, and I can’t see any overt connection to Armenta or his known associates. But these firms have the same two lawyers, Archil Mchendlidze and Valeri Bendianishvili, that Armenta used as the Georgian represtentatives for his branch office companies.
And what these three firms above all have in common, is that they have ordianary Britons from Consett as direcotrs/owners.
It points to Armenta and Zala folks (and possibly even Mark Scott) working with this Simon Dowson guy:
I found a bit more direct connection between Zala folks and Dowson. In 2014, Armenta & Morro establishded a Georgian branch of office company for their BVI based company TWENTY-FOUR-SEVEN HW LIMITED (companyinfo.ge/en/corporations/672464; docdroid.net/yXAgcIx/twentyfoursewenhwltdgeorgia-pdf).
In 2018, an UK entity with the same name was established, with Carolyne Thompson (who was also in Soleymew) and Simon Dowson — the man from the Reuters article above — as its owners directors. See:
(Could this 2018 UK comapany be ralted to Morro, who remains at large, moving part of OneCoin & other fraud criminal proceeds he helped to launder with Zala folks, to new locations?)
But what’s even stranger still, during Mark Scott’s trial the SDNY prosecutors discovered that the Exhibit B letter might actually have been partly faked:
Could it be that Armenta put the names of those three entities on the termination latter he sent to Scott, because these were companies from their past Georgia-linked joint money laundering ventures, and by falsely implying to Scott that they were “compromised”, Armenta could steal them to himself?
With this gang of thieves, crooks, criminals, and charlatans anything is possible. They are just proving the old adage, “There is no honor among thieves.”
From what I have been able to learn, most of the major promoters and players behind the scene didn’t even like each other. They just tolerated each other for the “good” of OneCoin.
Addition to comment #124
Another video about Allen Stanford in English that also mentions TD Bank (Toronto Dominion Bank).
TD Bank have a history of sleaze, even picking up Epstein after Deutsche Bank dropped him, let alone facilitating Scott Rothstein’s $1bn ponzi.
In light of the recent FinCen files revelations, how surprised is anyone?
Deutsche Bank had a very good reputation many years ago. For several years the share price has been falling constantly and is now well below 10 euros!
Deutsche Bank is also mentioned in this article:
The WDR, a German radio and television broadcaster, has broadcast a documentary about Donald Trump and Deutsche Bank. Still online here on YouTube:
Does anyone know when the OneExchange’s sixth anniversary will be celebrated? Where will the celebration take place?
I have no plans for October 24th and I would like to attend this event! I suspect Veska Ignatova will be giving a fantastic speech about the success of OneExchange …
Addition to comments #118 and #119
OneCoin fraudster Florian Pürner from Etzelwang in Germany hides his real name on YouTube. Why does he call himself “UYPFlo” there?
In one of his numerous videos he allegedly wants to prove that OneCoin is not a scam!
When I read and hear Florian Pürner‘s nonsense, I always think of Albert Einstein, who said:
Addition to comments #117 and #120
The third person that Cordel KingJayms James mentioned in the video is the OneCoin scammer “Dr.” Werner Englisch from Rimsting in Germany.
This fraudster describes himself on LinkedIn (without “Dr.”) as
An older screenshot of the OneCoin fraudsters from Austria with Werner Englisch.
Werner Englisch is married to Ingeborg Englisch, who also promotes the OneCoin scam!
Ingeborg and Werner Englisch:
How many Black Diamonds were there within the criminal OneCoin/OneLife-organization? Cordel KingJayms James confirms in this newsletter that everyone has fled – with one exception: Mohammed Adeel.
You’re an idiot! The notorious OneCoin scammer is called Muhammad Adeel, not Mohammed! If you cannot read, you should attend school and you are unsuitable as a ‘Captain’.
I’m sad. Very sad. I can’t understand why only 2,415 people watched this all-important and imposing video! No Alfred Hitchcock film was more exciting!
3 hours, 27 minutes and 15 seconds of the most important information, fairy tales and lies deserve more attention!
The speech by Veska Ignatova, the mother of the criminal Ruja Ignatova, was subtitled in English in the video. Just 87 likes and two comments are also disappointing…
Unfortunately, I cannot upload any screenshots because the fraudsters installed copy protection.
That was painful to watch. Every presenter could not hide that they knew they were lying through their teeth at what they were saying and claiming about “One.” Their body language spoke volumes about how un-natural they were in trying to put a “positive spin” on One.
This was like watching a low budget, low grade B movie with novice actors trying to portray themselves as being real actors.
Sahil Jaan, a OneCoin scammer from Pakistan with 11,200 subscribers, has deleted all videos for the OneCoin scam on his channel “1 Trillion Dreams“. Why?
Now he’s spreading his lies on a different channel. I quote in chronological order:

Dreadful! So many different dates – I’m totally confused now. Do the fraudsters in Pakistan use a different calendar than we do in Germany?
If someone speaks Urdu or Hindi, they could call the scammer (with photo) in Pakistan:
Another very active OneCoin scammer from Pakistan is called “Faisal Trader” or “Faisal Forex“. As of December 9, 2019, this notorious liar has uploaded 60 videos to YouTube. His photo and phone number:
48 of these videos contain alleged news about the “Exchange“! Which exchange is this dream dancer talking about?
19 videos contain a photo of the criminal Ruja Ignatova, with which the fraudster wants to create the impression that the information he is distributing is “official”. Konstantin Ignatov is only shown on one video.
The following screenshots show the 60 videos published until October 9, 2020.
This crook has been spreading the same lies since January 2020 on his website faisaltrader.com.
OneCoin scammer Muhammad Adeel (Co-Captain and Black Diamond) also had a YouTube channel with 12,800 subscribers. He has since deleted his “CashLess Revolution” channel. Why? Is the revolution no longer taking place?
I saved the following screenshots when this fraud channel was still available. Muhammad Adeel speaks the Urdu and Hindi languages, which he used to lure reckless and gullible Pakistanis and Indians into the OneCoin scam.
The videos full of lies and fairy tales with Muhammad Adeel are currently being distributed by another fraudster. His name is Affan Khan from Pakistan. Details in a separate post.
Affan Khan‘s YouTube channel is called “Entrepreneurs Club” and has 3,040 subscribers. It currently contains 190 videos. Here is a screenshot with photo and phone number:
Affan Khan from Pakistan and Muhammad Adeel are friends and have cheated together for a long time.
Affan Khan also proudly shows the OneCoin fraudster Muhammad Adeel on many videos. Here are just two examples out of many:
Affan Khan has also been DealShaker Country Manager for Pakistan since February 2020.
The next OneCoin scammer from Pakistan with his own YouTube channel is called Rana Sohaib. His channel is called “Onecoin News” and currently contains 61 videos.
share-your-photo.com/58c9475602 (His phone number)
share-your-photo.com/33a9f19676 (His photo)
Obviously there is no more money to be made with the OneCoin scam. So Rana Sohaib tries another scam: “SOHAIB FOREX“.
Another channel from this Pakistani scammer was “RS Academy“.
By chance I discovered that some OneCoin scammers upload or link their videos to the cyberspaceandtime.com portal. An example:
The criminal Gilani clan from Pakistan is also extremely committed to OneCoin fraud. The head of the gang is Syed Muhammad Muzammil Gilani from Multan in Pakistan. This evil crook uses around 20 different Facebook accounts to spread his lies. He is also active for the OneCoin scam on Twitter, Pinterest, several websites and two YouTube channels.
This current photo is from Facebook. He has now removed it.
He used this photo on Twitter and Pinterest.
He used this photo on YouTube.
The contact details of this notorious liar and cheater Syed Muhammad Muzammil Gilani from Multan in Pakistan:
On June 10, 2020 I last checked his 10 websites and YouTube channels and made a screenshot of them. He often changes the content, sometimes he deletes advertisements for the OneCoin scam or adds advertisements again.
Afzal Ali Gilani (left) is also actively involved as a protagonist in the OneCoin fraud in Pakistan. This photo was obviously deleted on Facebook too.
Syed Muhammad Muzammil Gilani from Multan in Pakistan uses his numerous fake accounts on Facebook every day to lie like the following:
The criminal activities of this notorious liar on YouTube follow in a separate post.
The first YouTube channel of the notorious liar and OneCoin scammer Syed Muhammad Muzammil Gilani from Multan, Pakistan was “Superior Nation“. He uploaded the first video on August 17th, 2019.
This irritates me! How long does a “final phase” take in Bulgaria? Weeks, months, years, decades?
The name Habib Jahid also irritates me. Should there be a OneCoin scammer I don’t know yet?
The last video on the OneCoin scam on this channel was uploaded by Syed Muhammad Muzammil Gilani on March 3, 2020:
In total there are 78 videos related to the OneCoin scam on this channel.
Every video has fantastic titles like:
Wow! Where are these “millions of OneCoin merchants” hiding? Dealshaker.com only mentions 131,800 merchants. I see a very small, tiny difference …
The second YouTube channel of OneCoin scammer Syed Muhammad Muzammil Gilani from Pakistan on YouTube is “Inspiring Nation” with 486 videos and 8,440 subscribers.
If you look at the titles of his videos, you will immediately see that an infamous liar and cheat is at work here. Some blatant examples:
Although the criminal Ruja Ignatova has disappeared without a trace since October 2017, this vile fraudster also constantly uses photos of her to give the impression that she is still in the fraud business.
By the way: In his oldest video from February 28, 2019, this nasty fraudster mentioned the “Exchange” – and of course in his video from yesterday too!
These repetitions are extremely boring! Where can I complain?
In April 2020, the OneCoin scammer Syed Muhammad Muzammil Gilani from Multan, Pakistan spread the following lie on the newservice.xyz portal:
The article is no longer there, but is still quoted here:
Another article from newservice.xyz that is also no longer there:
Addition to comment #34
Unfortunately nothing will change in Bulgaria. Prime Minister Boyko Borissov has obviously won yesterday’s election in Bulgaria again.
In the German newspaper welt.de it was mentioned that Boyko Borissow was formerly the bodyguard of the last communist head of state, Todor Zhivkov.
A terrific career – from bodyguard to prime minister! Nobody should be surprised that Bulgaria is still the poorest and most corrupt country in the European Union.
Borissov has ruled since 2009 and the Bulgarian people have demonstrated against him many times over the past year.
The recent Bulgarian elections were great news for OneCoin.
Not only did Boyko win, but it’s also troubling who was the other winner:
Slavi Trifonov is alleged to be a puppet for “Cocaine King” Taki who was — accoding to DoJ — head of security of Onecoin and responsible for arranging Ruja’s escape, i.e a major backround force for OneCoin.
Here is some background for the allegations:
The German TV broadcaster ZDF just reported that Boyko Borissov may not be the new Prime Minister.
Other parties that have won votes do not want to form a coalition with him. Forming a new government will be difficult.
Sounds like Bulgaria is a bit of a lost cause then. Does the EU have any accountability for member states?
Or does that only extend to debt.
The entire EU is a faulty construction. The rich countries subsidize the poor countries. But nobody checks that the subsidies are being used correctly.
All Balkan countries regard the EU as a self-service shop for private purposes. Individual politicians have built pompous mansions with EU funds.
Of course, like Ruja Ignatova, with a huge swimming pool and other luxuries. Several examples were shown on German television.
I’m a great believer in the EU. The EU stops what happened in the last century of the two most disastrous and unnecessary wars happening and being exported from the continent. Boyko Borissov is obviously a complete clown.
The Bulgarian President on the other hand is the kind of person Europe needs and should be encouraging.
European history has a single message: hubris ends badly. And it often happens when you seem to be at the top of your game. Ask a Bonaparte, Ceaucescu, Honecker, etc
The OneCoin scam has obviously moved towards cannibalising itself. Unless King Size Jayms can dissolve Google there is never going to be any more recruitment.
So the people pay for apps, pay for KYC, pay for something called a “digital identity”, pay to lose money selling something on DealShaker, and throw good money after bad.
This isn’t of course sustainable.
Before the European Union was founded, there was the European Economic Community (EEC). That made sense because it made trade within Europe easier.
The current EU is a bureaucratic monster ruled by incompetent politicians in Brussels!
A bad example: the EU ordered far too late and far too few vaccines against Covid-19!
In Germany only 10% of the population have been vaccinated once. This is a disaster compared to many other countries.
The EU is a mess. Smaller countries like Bulgaria get paid by richer countries and do ridiculous things like tolerate Ruja.
Still, that is far better than what our grandparents faced.
Recently, some members of EU tried to push a decision to cut off EU subsidies from Poland and Hungary, because their authoritarian governments had pretty much demolished independent courts and media.
This was the most extreme thing ever tried within EU to force some compliance on its members. (And it failed or there was some watered-down version of the decision, because EU’s decision making is consensus based, and small members can veto any decision.)
Usually EU just rebukes when its rules & values have been broken. Like it did with Germany recently when it investigated the humiliating failure of BaFin in the Wirecard debacle:
EU doesen’t have the powers to do much more than rebuke & recommend. EU’s remit of “harder” legislative/directive power is solely in the realm market/commercial regulation.
Pretty much everything else within the EU is voluntary and non-binding. EU relies mostly on goodwill & co-opeation of its members to implement the rules & recommendations.
Eurozone members (19/27 of EU countries) have some additional measures & requirements for financial discipline, especially if some troubled eurozone country wants to get money from the eurozone debt mechanisms.
I’m also a great beliver in EU. It has many — even structural — failures and problems, but its great that it exists even in its current ugliness.
It can always be reformed if there is political will.
Some EU level body (Europol, Eurojust, European Anti-Fraud Office / OLAF) would be in great position to fight trans-national crime like MLM-Ponzis, but EU counries haven’t given these any independent powers to investigate, prosecute or discipline.
These bodies mainly exist co-ordinate law-enforcement action & investigations of EU members.
Having an EU level criminal prosectuor and “FBI” (and some regulator with real teeth) would be one solution to tackle the lackluster law-enforcement / anti-corruption efforts seen in many EU member states.

In the current newsletter, four German-speaking OneCoin fraudsters are named and shown:
– Werner Englisch – DealShaker Country Manager Germany and Austria, self-proclaimed “compliance expert”
– Josef Neff – OneLife Core Team
– Emil Blumer – Co-Captain
– Günther Sepp – OneLife Core Team
We know that the OneCoin fraudsters are internationally networked. This also applies to Werner Englisch. He links on the DealShaker to the international serial fraudster Enrique Rosenthal in Bolivia:
The imprint of zufluchtsort.com :
An old fraud portal by Enrique Rosenthal had the title:
blitzmillionaer.com (Lightning millionaire)
Of course, this portal no longer exists. A quick quote:
Video from April 2019:
I can’t confirm yet that Enrique Rosenthal is also involved in the OneCoin scam. Only Werner Englisch will know that, from whom I have the following contact details:
OneCoin fraudster Sepp Neff from Switzerland mentioned in my last comment was a guest in a video by the mentally ill Martin Mayer from Liechtenstein:
In the video, among other things, it is said that the OneExchange will become part of DealShaker. Literal statement by Sepp Neff:

The YouTube channel of the OneCoin scammer Emil Blumer is empty. Why?
But there is still this video of him:
The English-speaking part begins with the OneCoin scammer Michael Yeo:
It is interesting that Emil Blumer is a trained cook. The OneCoin fraudsters Anton “Toni” Federspiel (Blue Diamond) from South Tyrol and Robert Prokop are also trained cooks. Can these three cooks add some hearty flavor to the foul tasting OneCoin soup?
In the video, Emil Blumer asks questions about OneCoin in German, which Marcus Held answers in English. Who is Marcus Held? He is not shown in the video. I have never heard this name in connection with OneCoin.
A calculation example from the video. Anyone who bought a package combination for EUR 28,610 now has OneCoins worth EUR 3,833,675. Enough money for a new saucepan, hand mixer and microwave. Emil Blumer will buy a mansion, a Rolls Royce and a small plane from the rest.
In this subject Boyko Borissov was mentioned repeatedly. Today a German newspaper writes:
Anyone have a contact address for Veska?
I am putting together a list of relief defendants for a OneCoin lawsuit – besides Veska, Al Qassimi, Mimoun Madani – who should be on that list?
@ Jon Levy
What about the entire UK upline? They cynically worked ethnic minorities with little English-language skills, access to the web, an often questionable immigration status, no financial acumen, the English police being the English police for the English, etc.
They couldn’t really go to the authorities to report their sister or mother, whoever, who brought them into this scheme after a meeting at a mosque or temple.
I bet it’s the same model across all of Europe and for multiple MLMs.
In Exhibit 15 one can find the contact info of Veska:
From the same document, Konstantin’s girlfriend Kristina Gouneva (Exhibit 10) is — according to King Jayms — one the key persons currently running the OneCoin “corporate” along with her law firm partner Vanya Angelova. Nicole Atanasova (Exhibit 20) works/worked for the firm too and has made several filings in the Bulagarian business registry for OneCoin related companies.
They can be reached via the law firm too –> ga-lawfirm.bg/
Consider adding them.
You should consider adding Viktor Rashev (rashev.net/en/) too. He is a mob lawyer for Bulgarian crime group VIS-2 which has likely been a key background organization for OneCoin. (Viktor’s VIS-2 association mentioned here: retro.bg/obshchestvo/brendo-i-taki-v-panamageyt_6336.html )
Konstantin testified in the court that Viktor is in charge of Ruja’s properties. Mark Scott transfered to €6 million to Viktor’s “Vida Home” company, and Viktor also participated in some of the money laundering paperwork with Scott & others.
DOJ has alleged that The “head of securituy of OneCoin” & VIS-2 boss Hristoforos Nicos Amanatidis “Taki” was instumental in helping Ruja to escape.
VIS-2 figure Ventsislav Gerov aka Ventsi the Fox collected money for the recent OneCoin event in Plovdiv. Viktor could represent them all.
Why not also consider the key persons/firms of current OneCoin IT team, namely Vladislav Velkov, Vladislav & Vladimir Vasilev — RightClick, Shivachi, etc.
Consider adding Angel Rumenov Boyadzhiyski aka Foxi for he is the nominee manager & owner of practically all Bulgarian OneCoin companies, see this chart I made almost two years ago but still holds true:
@ Jon Levy
You could use this email address and write in the subject line: “Forward to Ms. Veska Ignatova”
My email to this address could be delivered today.
I just got a strange error message. My email to office[@]onecoin.eu could still not be delivered after four days, but I don’t understand the reason given. What does that mean?

Will something change politically in corrupt Bulgaria? A report from today:
The article also mentions that Boyko Borissov is repeatedly accused of poor administration and corruption.
Thanks for the tips!
President Radew clearly won the election with 66.7%. He supports and promotes the new anti-corruption party in Bulgaria. Perhaps now the political conditions in this corrupt state are changing.

Good news from Bulgaria. Former Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and scores of others were arrested.
