Stat

Ruja Ignatova, the self-proclaimed "CryptoQueen" who allegedly fleeced individuals out of $4 billion through a fraudulent cryptocurrency called OneCoin, has been added to the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted list. Then she pulled a Saul Goodman and vanished. “Now she sits side by side...with cartel leaders, murderers, and terrorists," said the US attorney for the Southern District of New York of her inclusion on the Top 10 list. "That's no accident.”

Quote
