The Disappearance of Ruja Ignatova
Ruja Ignatova, founder of the crypto pyramid Onecoin, disappeared in October 2017 and was last seen at an airport in Athens. Since then she has been dubbed „the missing Cryptoqueen“ and is wanted by Interpol, Europol, and the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Murder in the Mediterranean?
According to an article published by Bulgarian website Bureau for Investigative Reporting and Data (Bird.bg), Ruja Ignatova may have been murdered in Greece a year after her disappearance. This conclusion is based on evidence obtained during an investigation into the murder of a former top police officer in Sofia. The ex-head of a criminal police department was shot in March 2022 and аn informant’s report suggests that Ruja Ignatova was killed on a yacht in the Ionian Sea and her body dismembered and thrown into the water on orders from a drug lord. However, there is no way to verify the authenticity of this report as it is not signed or attributed to anyone specific.

Launched as а multi-level-marketing network based on а fake cryptocurrency back in 2014, Onecoin is believed to have defrauded over 3 million investors globally out of more than $4 billion dollars worth investments.
Previous Reports Speculate Other Possibilities
Previous media reports have speculated other possibilities such as whether she has been murdered or if she is still alive after changing her appearance through plastic surgery. In July 2022 Greek press revealed police had attempted to capture Ignatova after receiving information that she was present in the country at that time. Her brother Konstantin was detained in Los Angeles back 2019 for being involved with Onecoin fraud scheme too
Despite speculations about her fate circulating for years now it seems like we will never know what truly happened to Ruja Ignatova since there isn’t sufficient proof or evidence regarding this case yet .
