Bulgarian Ruja Ignatova, also known as the “missing crypt lady”, was placed on the FBI’s list of the ten most wanted criminals, the American federal police.

The criminal, believed to be in her 40s, is wanted for her alleged role in a cryptocurrency scam known as OneCoin.

Authorities accuse the fugitive of using the scheme to defraud victims of more than US$4 billion.

Ignatova has been missing since 2017, when US authorities issued an arrest warrant for her.
