Glasgow resident Jen McAdam says supporters of the alleged OneCoin scam are sending death threats, mostly via Facebook.
Death Threats Reported to Police
On October 14, the BBC wrote that Jen McAdam, a fake OneCoin digital currency investor, informed Scottish police about a series of messages she received, threatening her with death and violence. McAdam says the threats are part of a coordinated attack by OneCoin supporters, adding:
"It's horrible, the abuse is vile and the threats seem very real to me, now I'm always looking over my shoulder. It's affecting my health, but I won't give up until I and the thousands of other OneCoin victims like me see from some way of justice ".
McAdam, who is part of the Cryptoqueen BBC Sounds podcast, which investigates the alleged scam, has invested thousands of dollars in his own money by mistake. He later convinced his family and friends to do the same, which together contributed $ 277,000. She said:
"I know from the different victim groups around the world that it's people like me who are affected. They invested the savings of their lives, protected their homes and convinced their friends and family to get involved and feel as bad as I am for everything. that's because we were all deceived. ”
McAdams added that there are about 70,000 OneCoin victims in the UK, "but it looks like they're falling behind, no one seems interested in that."
The founders of the OneCoin coup were arrested
The Cointelegraph reported in March 2019 that a US prosecutor had accused the founders of international cryptocurrencies involving the commercialization of the allegedly fraudulent digital currency OneCoin. OneCoin brothers and founders Konstantin Ignatov and his sister Ruja Ignatova were reportedly arrested on March 6, 2019 in Los Angeles. The brothers were charged with electronic fraud, securities fraud and money laundering crimes.
