    Allegations of a faked resume by ‘Dr. Ruja Ignatova’...

    One Coin, Much Scam: OneCoin Exposed as Global MLM Ponzi Scheme

    Then there's this doozy...

    Also working for OneCoin in various capacities are Sebastian Greenwood and Nigel Allan, both of whom have been involved in scam operations in the past.

    Greenwood previously worked with defunct pyramid scheme Unaico, whose activities were the subject of a warning from Pakistan’s Securities and Exchanges Commission. The notice cited “illegal multi-level marketing” practices and advised consumers “to refrain from investing/ dealing in these so-called lucrative business schemes, launched by the Company.”

    Allan, the ex-president of OneCoin, has meanwhile previously been implicated in similar pyramid schemes to OneCoin, namely Crypto888 and Brilliant Carbon.

    Yeah, kinda like fake information programs aka infomercials...! (Ladies and gentlemen, we interrupt this advertisement for a brief program...!)

    Joby is pushing Onecoin hard in this badly written piece, (and claims on his FB page that the Universe is rewarding him - well done the Universe!)

    However, his planned event isn't doing too well. Look how many people were invited.....and how many are actually going....

    well, just the fact there are allegedly 50,000 members but only 229 invited shows what a liar he is. why wouldn't all members at least be invited? Plus he's still pushing the 'Forbes cover' lie that's been exposed across the web.

    Thanks for this Ribshaw. I have read the article, and enjoyed all the comments on it in particular. I note that the same old stuff came up in response: that the author if the article is allegedly into Bitcoins and therefore not to be trusted, that he is only trying to drive traffic to his own blog, that they've been audited and given a glowing report, well, we all know the rest.

    I know nothing about crypto currencies, they are too complicated for me, but something about this whole Onecoin thing just doesn't seem right to me. And I'm not into Bitcoin and don't have a blog that I want to promote either.

    As for "Dr Ruja", is she a medical doctor or an academic doctor? Presumably the latter. I thought you had to have done a PhD to call yourself "Doctor"? If that is the case, can we know where she did her PhD, and what was the subject and title of her thesis? Who was her supervising professor?

    If she is an Oxford graduate, at which college did she study? When was she there, did she live in the college or live out? Any chance of seeing her graduation photograph?

    These are fairly basic questions which should be easy to answer, I would have thought. I'm sure she would welcome the chance to put any doubts people may have to rest.

    CORRECTION: The Magister Juris at Oxford is in fact a postgraduate course. She cannot have graduated from it as a first degree. So can we know where and when she did her first degree and in what subject, please?

    Yes, Wayne, it mystifies me as well. I'm fairly new to the RS forum, joined because of Banners Broker about 3 years ago, but I am still learning. I don't know how the experienced people here can stand it, how they don't feel like just giving up and going away. Because it is one thing after another, they never stop; and I know that when one thing falls over, another dozen will be along to take its place.

    Depressing.

    part of the allure is the scammers do half our work for us by joining. then we know for sure it's a scam.

    I am with you, too much hassle. Have a bank account, have a credit card, have cash, all seem to be working fine. Admittedly I am a late adopter for most things, but problems like theft that occur with Bitcoin have already been addressed in our conventional banking system. Being hacked, or having a credit card stolen is more a foregone conclusion than a what if. Rather just call the bank and get on with my life. Plus who is smart enough to pick an eventual winner out of this mess, Joby?

    " There were more than 530 cryptocurrencies available for trade in online markets as of 5 January 2015 and more than 740 in total[1] but only 10 of them had market capitalizations over $10 million.[2]"

    According to List of cryptocurrencies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Your questions reminds me of Danny Pang's Trail of Clues - WSJ. Despite his history and an easy to disprove story, people lavished him with cash. Not that a faked resume hasn't happened a hundred times, people never seem to check. That Dr Ruja's 2 and 3 were allegedly involved in previous scams also potent red flags. Meh, I'm sure this all turns up aces.

    Just toss the work boots in a pile, and on to scam number five. What could possibly go wrong?

    Joby Has Taken To Writing Like This. Perhaps He Thinks It Makes Him Sound More Important, But In Fact It Is Very Irritating. Plus The Main Problem Is That What he Writes Is Rubbish.

    At least he hasn't mentioned the Illuminati yet. But give it time, give it time.....

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    Every now and then a scam comes along which is so outrageously over the top one has to question the sanity and common sense abilities of those who participate in it.

    OneCoin is one of them.

    Can I just point out to Joby that if you double nothing, you still have nothing.....

    JB OC 17 June 15.jpg

    And also....if you double 1,380, you get 2,760.....is this some new form of maths that Onecoin is doing here?

    Hucksters love the split, reminds me of the internet bubble of 99.

    In a recent book, ''Wall Street Money Machine,'' Mr. Cook -- a former cab driver whose proverbs include ''God wants us to prosper'' -- has an entire chapter devoted to buying options on stock splits. He also has an Internet site that, among other things, markets his IQ Pager. And a growing number of investors are taking his advice. New Frenzy - A Split, a Beep and an Option - NYTimes.com

    Our new friend, Tania Parsons (once so ardently behind UFUN.....and Dubli....and others no doubt) has thrown her weight behind Onecoin.

    Watch out USA, Onecoin is coming to you on 4th July. Lucky old you!

    TP OC June 15.jpg

    Glad to see the old Forbes cover is still doing the rounds, even though it has been debunked as an advertising feature for which Onecoin paid. Still, it might convince a few people to join and that's where the wheels hit the road after all, isn't it?

    You would think people would at least have presence of mind to ask to see a copy of the article, and dare I say even read it before they reach for their wallet.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    Here's "Dr" Ruja Ignatova's FB page: https://www.facebook.com/ruja.ignatova

    RI FB page June 15.jpg

    To save you wasting your time looking at it, it's all pictures of her pouting and wearing big frocks.

    Interestingly, she joined this FB group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2211138452/?pnref=lhc

    It's a group for people, and I quote, "For those who have studied in Oxford, England under SCIO or some other program, and have fallen in love with all that is Oxford."

    A SCIO programme is "Scolarship and Christianity in Oxford". It gives you tutorials, access to University facilities, and the right to attend lectures - a sort of visiting student really. Cost about $18,000.

    Now, why would "Dr" Ignatova who claims to have completed a Masters level degree in Law at Oxford be interested in a little group like this, I wonder? Surely it would be waaaayyyy beneahth her exalted level?

    On July 4th, 2015 the OneCoin scam will roll out here in the USA. Let's give them a nice warm welcome, please take action and report these scammers to the SEC. https://denebleo.sec.gov/TCRExternal/questionaire.xhtml

    Ahead of the proposed July 4 OneCoin launch, it is being promoted in the USA by Glenn Smith, which should make it easy for the SEC when they go looking.
