A German court has sentenced the founders of the OneCoin cryptocurrency scam to jail. The couple, Frank Ricketts and Manon Hubenthal, along with their lawyer, were convicted of defrauding nearly 90,000 victims and amassing €320 million. Frank received a 5-year jail term, Manon was sentenced to 4 years, and their lawyer received a 2-year and nine-month prison sentence. The court also ordered the seizure of assets from each defendant. The scam was orchestrated by Ruja Ignatova, who is on the FBI's most wanted list and has been wanted by Interpol since 2017. There were reports that Ruja was killed by a drug lord in Greece in 2018. OneCoin is considered one of the largest cryptocurrency scams, raising $4 billion. The US Department of Justice has also filed charges against another individual involved in the scheme.
