US Authorities Extradite ex- Onecoin Executive For Sentencing In US

The United States Department of Justice (DoJ) says it is charging 41-year-old Irina Dilkinska for her role in one of the biggest crypto scams in history, ‘Onecoin’.

 

The DoJ, in a statement issued on Tuesdays, said that Irina is being charged with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, which carries a maximum potential sentence of 20 years in prison, and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, which carries a maximum potential sentence of 20 years in prison.

 

Reports state that over 3 million people invested over $4 billion in the fraudulent scheme in 2016.

 

“Irina Dilkinska, the supposed Head of Legal and Compliance for the OneCoin cryptocurrency pyramid scheme, accomplished the exact opposite of her job title and allegedly enabled OneCoin to launder millions of dollars of illegal proceeds through shell companies. Dilkinska helped perpetuate a wide-ranging scheme with millions of victims and billions of dollars in losses, and she will now face justice for her alleged crimes.”U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said in the statement.

“As alleged in the charges unsealed today, Dilkinska helped her co-conspirator, Mark Scott, launder approximately $400 million in OneCoin proceeds while she was purportedly OneCoin’s Head of Legal and Compliance. Further, when she learned of Scott’s arrest, she destroyed incriminating documents and sent another co-conspirator incriminating messages. As the actions announced today should demonstrate, the FBI will continue its determination to bring alleged fraudsters like Dilkinska to justice.”FBI Assistant Director Michael J. Driscoll added.
