Ruja Ignatova, nicknamed the “disappeared crypto queen,” was recently informed by unknown sources that the FBI was looking for her in connection with a $4 billion cryptocurrency scam that she committed before disappearing. For her crucial involvement in planning the one coin scam, the 42-year-old Bulgarian woman is still the person that intelligence agencies are most looking for.
The documents from Europol meetings show that the suspect was aware of the attempt of her detention several months before her disappearance. She has been missing since October 25, 2017. FBI added Ignatova to the list of the top 10 most wanted individuals after being tipped off about boosting police investigations into her OneCoin cryptocurrency.
Frank Schneider, a former spy and Ms Ignatova’s trusted advisor, provided the police records to The Missing Cryptoqueen podcast. The documents were given to him by Ms Ignatova on a USB memory stick. Mr Schneider claims this is false. He asserts that the file metadata indicates she received the information through her personal relationships in Bulgaria. Schneider will face extradition to the US for his influence in the One coin scam. It was defined as the most prominent crypto scam in history.
The police files contain the presentation made during the Europol meeting in the Hague on March 15 2017, with a given name, ‘Operation Satellite’. The meeting was attended by the FBI, the US department of justice and the District attorney of Newyork, and officers from the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Dubai and Bulgaria.
OneCoin bank accounts were receiving money from investors, according to the documents, which reveal that US officials had a “top confidential informant” in the scheme. The British police made unsuccessful attempts to speak with Ignatova in London, which were also captured on video.
The FBI didn’t say anything about the Europol documents. Still, Special Agent Paul Roberts explains, “Several investigations are conducted worldwide upon herself and One coin, but she learned everything through law enforcement agencies in other nations.”
