Authorities in Argentina have made two more arrests as they pursue OneCoin promoters across the country.

Following on from the arrest of eight OneCoin scammers earlier this month, Alejandro Taylor has now been apprehended.

As reported by Lavoz, Taylor learned he was a wanted fugitive and boarded a plane from Brazil to Taravella International Airport. He was detained by immigration authorities upon arrival.

The other arrest is a new suspect, Ariel Morasut. Morasut’s residence in Cordoba was raided following more OneCoin victims coming forward to police.

The Argentinian OneCoin criminal case now has thirteen suspects, ten of which are in custody. OneCoin founder Ruja Ignatova and top promoter Jose Gordo remain at large.

Konstantin Ignatov, Ruja Ignatova’s brother, was arrested by US authorities in March 2019. He has since been assisting the DOJ with various criminal cases filed against OneCoin ringleaders.

Ruja Ignatova disappeared in October 2017 and has not been seen in public since.

Jose Gordo (right) is believed to be hiding out in Spain. He recently joined Beyond Wealth, a reboot of the Onyx Lifestyle Ponzi scheme.

Whether Gordo is permanently based out of Spain is unclear. His personal Facebook page is primarily managed from Spain, Mexico and Colombia.

To date Spanish authorities have failed to take any action against Gordo, or any local OneCoin scammers he worked with.

We’ll continue to provide updates as the Argentinian OneCoin criminal case plays out.
