In Pursuit with John Walsh Recap for Crypto Queenpin


CASE 1:

Nancy D’Epiro was a widow who was living alone after her kids left home to be on their own. In 2016, she learned about a company called OneCoin that promised people money, aka the ‘other BitCoin.’ Nancy was not familiar with this way of making money, but decided to give it a try. She would go on to invest her money, not knowing that she was about be scammed.

 

Dr. Ruta Ignatov and her brother Konstantin was the face behind the company and had different packages to help people make money. Nancy and her friends would soon get hooked and she would put $1,900 into OneCoin.

Denis Murdock was another one to invest money into the company and fall for the scam. He saw Igna as a smart woman and thought it would be a huge success.

Nancy would soon encourage her sister to invest in the company. She would invest $12,000 into the company, thinking this would get them more money as they saw the stocks rise.

Denis also saw this happen, but none of them could see how to convert their investments into real money. They could only spend money via OneCoin, which Denis did, soon becoming a spokesperson for the company. He would go on to travel the world to talk about the success of the company.

Before long, others began looking into the company more closely, seeing that it was actually a huge scam….and everyone would lose out on the money.
