Speaking at an event… and I asked the organisers to print a few posters… you never know 👀

Top thread from fellow Missing Cryptoqueen investigator @ByrnesyGsy

If like me, you missed yesterday's FBI press conference on the Cryptoqueen being added to their 10 most wanted, here is a 🧵with some takeaways on her disappearance

Things really hotting up with the FBI most wanted announcement. And you know you’ve made it @JamieJBartlett when you type ‘missing’ into Amazon and the Missing Cryptoqueen is the second most searched thing after Missing Tooth Replacement Kit

Missing Cryptoqueen: FBI adds Ruja Ignatova to top ten most wanted

@JamieJBartlett describes it as "probably the biggest development in the case since Dr Ruja disappeared in October 2017"


As a massive fan of @JamieJBartlett's Missing Cryptoqueen podcast, I'm so glad we got to feature a few snippets in today's interactive news bulletin on Alexa

Ruga Ignatova has ripped off thousands of Brits for millions of pounds. She's now on the FBI's most wanted list.

Yet the Metropolitan Police, Financial Conduct Authority and the Mayor of London have all refused to take serious action to protect people.


One week after my book The Missing Cryptoqueen is published, this happens:

Very rare for me to to do one tweet in a day, let alone two.

Three is near unheard of, but this is Big News.

Now we just have to beat the FBI to it eh @JamieJBartlett @ByrnesyGsy ??! https://twitter.com/fbimostwanted/status/1542529479452463107

Behind the scenes with @Freddygray31 at the @spectator, one of the most honest journalists around! 😂

OK - Inner City Press is at FBI press conference about putting #OneCoin's Ruja Ignatova on 10 Most Wanted List. Have questions about extradiction(s), Konstantin Ignatov, Amr Abdulaziz, Gilbert Armenta - will live tweet, thread below


As of about 5 minutes ago, Dr Ruja Ignatova, aka The Cryptoqueen is now on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitive List.


Honestly when @GeorgiaJCatt & I first met to discuss OneCoin & Dr Ruja as a *possible* podcast story in late 2018 we had absolutely no f***ing idea what we were getting into

OMG Dr Ruja Ignatova is about to be added to the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list! 🤯 🔥

@JamieJBartlett "Non-fiction? HA! The worst book I've ever read. Do not recommend!"
