FBI Report on Laundering by Private Funds Cites OneCoin Fraud in All but Name
OneCoin, an infamous crypto fraud, makes an uncredited cameo in a leaked FBI intelligence bulletin on the money-laundering risks of investment funds.
Following the publication of the FinCEN Files on Monday, investors suing OneCoin have now added allegations against BNY Mellon to their lawsuit.
The leaked "FinCEN files" show BNY Mellon flagged a $30 million purported loan that it helped wire as one suspected case of OneCoin laundering funds.
Ruga Ignatova and her company failed to respond to the case, according to court documents.
The U.S. Department of Justice wants an attorney to hand over the massive sum he helped launder for the OneCoin scheme.
Two promoters of the crypto Ponzi scheme OneCoin were found dead in Mexico last month.
The OneCoin cryptocurrency project – accused by authorities of being a Ponzi scheme – may have attempted to counter negative news by using "inauthentic" accounts to place favorable reviews on TrustPilot and Quora, according to new research.
