    True, I've been following this for at least 15 years and I've NEVER been wrong. Amazing, ain't it?

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    Igor and his followers on his blog bought the lie from Konstantin that the investigators into OC/OL had found nothing wrong. Their report was going to be given to him to prove OC/OL was legal and had committed no crimes. Now over 7 weeks later, with of course none of this happening, and that this multi-national criminal investigation was going to be over by now or before October's ICO; Igor finally had to admit, well let me let you say it in his own words, and I quote:

    "It’s the issue of not being self evident and have a huge war machinery against you.
    We can only pray that they find bank that is unreachable for this machinary cause I don’t really expect germany to close investigation this year. Official matter are so slow and I personally think it is timed intentioanlly to try and break them before going public. But if they survive, investigation will end sooner or later and then they will become self evident. My opinion."


    To be honest I never thought he would admit it on his blog that the investigation could go into 2019, but glad he finally did. Now what is truly funny in his statement is he refuses to mention that the criminal investigation is a multi-national investigation. He keeps calling it the German investigation since the lead prosecutor is German. By doing so he is downplaying the seriousness of this criminal investigation, and instead makes it sound like a personal vendetta against OC/OL. Of course all the problems that OC/OL have had with the authorities is a major war on OC/OL by the Bitcoin supporters, the banks, and of course all the haters who lied to get all the OC/OL bank accounts closed and lied to the investigators so they would do an investigation.

    Sadly this mantra will still be believed when criminal indictments are handed down and OC/OL is said to be a criminal enterprise.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    While the Swedish investigation is still ongoing, the Swedish Tax Authority did issue this ruling:

    OneCoin is not a crypto currency. OneCoin is basically a pyramid game. Pyramid games are treated tax-wise as a lottery. The Swedish Tax Agency’s view is that OneCoin is organized outside the EEA. You should therefore record income from OneCoin as income from capital as a profit in a foreign lottery. You may not deduct losses.

    What is interesting about this tax ruling is that it would suggest that citizens of Sweden were trying to claim income or a loss for their taxes over their OneCoin investment. Since OneCoin stopped all withdrawals in early 2017, makes this ruling interesting since Swedish investors in OC would not have had any income to claim.

    The Swedish investigation has been ongoing since 2016. It is my understanding that they are part of the multi-national criminal investigation into OC/OL. This would explain why no findings have been made in the Swedish investigation. Add that Samoa has stopped all OC/OL promotions there until further notice, and now the big push by OC/OL into Africa and South America is going to play out. Colombia ruled OC/OL could not operate in their country in early 2016. Wonder how long until the other South American countries will do the same.

    And the wheels of justice keep turning S L O W L Y, but they are a'turnin.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    In recent developments in China, the authorities in Hunan arrested 119 Chinese for their involvement in OC on May 15,2018.

    Since their arrest, each of the arrested suspects have confessed to participation in OneCoin as an investor. Two of the arrested suspects have already been sentenced to more than five years in prison.

    Authorities claim the OneCoin bust is the “largest MLM case” ever investigated in Hunan. The case spanned twenty Chinese provinces, Hong Kong and “overseas countries.” 20,000 bank accounts belonging to suspects were analyzed, along with “tens of millions” of transactions. Some 200 shell companies related to OneCoin were also part of the investigation.

    The Zhuzhou Intermediate People’s Court in Hunan in a judgment dated December 17th, 2017 certified OneCoin is an illegal pyramid scheme. In addition to the declaration of OC being an illegal pyramid scheme, they also gave a list of frozen assets at the end of the filing, including names and bank accounts. While most were Chinese, there were some in English, most notably Sebastian Greenwood who had over $7.1 Million Dollars frozen in his bank account. Other top OneCoin investors with “illegal income” that appear in the court document include:
    Robert Archibald (aka John Archibald, Chinese name: 罗某) – $18.8 million seized across three bank accounts and Robert Rysart (Chinese name: 费某) – $5.6 million seized across three bank accounts. In addition to money, the court document also lists laptops, computers and cars as seized assets.

    Of course Igor’s comments about all of this is that the Chinese don’t know what they are doing, and all those arrested were not legitimate IMA’s and not part of OC/O at all. They were using a Denmark based server and used Onecoin name to sell fake packages on the fake website using real Oneacademy education package prices.

    Only one itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie problem with Igor claiming these were not real IMA’s of OneCoin but operating illegally. The authorities that investigated OneCoin and made these arrests said, and I quote: “Since their arrest, each of the arrested suspects HAVE CONFESSSED TO PARTICIPATION IN OneCoin AS AN INVESTOR.(emphasis mine) Funny how Igor missed that little gem isn’t it.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    And another major promoter of OC has tried to "quietly" remove himself from OC/OL. Seems Dr. Zafar has changed his entire FP page profile and OC/OL is no longer mentioned. Rather odd since OC/OL is claiming their big ICO will happen Oct 8 this year. By his removing himself from being one of the OC/OL faithful, he could have all his coins seized.

    Now really, if you had as many coins as he had, would you pull the plug before the big ICO and the opportunity to make millions? At the rate OC/OL is losing their top promoters, there won't be anyone around for the big ICO.

    Now what is really going to be interesting is to see how all of those he conned into joining OC/OL are going to take this news. He had a big downline in Afghanistan and Kurdistan. I don't think he will be making any trips there anytime soon as they ALL have guns and are not afraid to use them.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    Well today was a big day for OC. It was the day they were to start Part 4 of their ICO. You would have thought this day would have been met with great fanfare from OC HQ extolling all the opportunities this day has brought, all the excitement of this great day in OC history, and how all of us haters got it wrong. Well, that is what you would have expected from a real company, but not a whimper from OC HQ. But then since Ruja and all the major players have exited stage left, one wonders if anyone is in charge at OC. Heck crickets chirping make more noise than OC has on this great day.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    Since October 2017, OC has been promising that their long-awaited ICO would take place October 8, 2018. It's all the members of OC, Igor and his blog, as well as OC has been saying in every seminar, blog post and OC's newsletter.

    I have also said all along that there would not be an ICO in October 2018, especially with the criminal investigation that was launched in January of this year. Now Igor on his blog made this update to his previous post about the big ICO for October 8, 2018 and I quote:


    "UPDATE: There is no promise that public era will start on October. That is only a plan but if ecosystem is not 100% ready there might be a delay"

    No PROMISE of an ICO on October 8, 2018? Seriously Igor? It's all you, OC, Ruja and Konstantin have been talking about and promising since October of last year. How can this be? Ruja has been working feverishly in her basement in a hidden locaton almost wearing her fingers to the bone to complete the ICO and the upgrades for DealShaker. Rather odd that Ruja, this crypto expert genius, an IQ of over 200, and an astute businesswoman would have to delay the ICO.

    Nice of you to try and softly let the members down when the announcement comes that the ICO has been delayed, yet again. I mean it has only been since 2014 that the ICO has been promised it is coming.

    I do have it on good authority, however, that the ICO will be done Junevember 33. All the OC"s just have to be patient.

    ^ Onecoin being pitched to suckers in Argentina.

    I can't believe that anyone with an internet connection and enough technical savvy to use Google can still be enticed to show up and listen to this crap.

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    The best part of the video were the dancers. They were incredible.

    I especially loved it when Konstantin came in and his opening line was "I am surprised to see so many people here!" Well Konstantin you weren't the only one. That is if you call about 200 - 300 people a lot of people. A far cry from OC heyday when they had 1,000's attending their seminars. But that was when they had all their big Ponzi pimps involved and they left.

    The real gem was in the last five minutes of his presentation when he made it known that OneCoin will be "going public" and instead of October 8th public trading in an exchange where everybody could buy and sell coins, he introduces 4 new stages and OFC packages for sale starting from September 8th and ending on January 7th 2019; which is if this correct the ICO is not Jan 7, 2019, not Oct 8, 2018.

    Thanks Konstantin for proving me right once again. And the faithful are happy with this news. Incredible. Here's the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IDpMgaZMhA

    Yep - that was quite a performance.

    Wonder what their motivation for deciding to block access to the USA "on copyright grounds" could possibly be?

    For that matter, who is "SME" who is claiming copyright?

    Re: onecoin.eu ponzi scam

    After the big raid by the multiple nation criminal task force and the servers were confiscated, OC made the announcement that the authorities were satisfied that OC had a real working blockchain, which has been a major sticking point between us "haters" and OC sycophants. Just as the dust had started to settle on the controversy, Konstantin goes to Argentina to announce the ICO for 10-8-18 was off and would not happen until after January 7 of 2019. They were doing a 4-stage OFC package starting on September 7, 2018. Toward the end of his speech he made a comment that should have shaken up every OC member. Here is what he said, and I quote:

    "“IT Team” confirmed OneCoin had “all the characteristics” of a blockchain."

    That is totally opposite of OC having a real and working blockchain. I can't wait to hear the spin they put on this one. Me thinks that Konstantin really stepped in it and confirmed OC doesn't have a blockchain after all as claimed.

    I'm sure we will hear that he misspoke due to the excitement and his euphoria of the moment since his announcement was so epic
