    The cryptoqueen who scammed the world: Ruja Ignatova called herself the Cryptoqueen. She told people she had invented a cryptocurrency to rival Bitcoin, and persuaded them to invest billions. Then, two years ago, she disappeared. Here’s the story of what happened when one reporter followed the trail of money to try and figure out where she was hiding.(BBC)

    "When prophecy fails they believe more strongly. Particularly if you have invested something, not only money, but belief, reputation, intelligence. You think, 'Wait a bit longer.'"

    ,, Before long, she had invested €10,000 of her own money - and persuaded friends and family to invest €250,000 of theirs. ''

  7. A fool and his money is soon departed, as it's said. That being said, this scum taking advantage of fools should rot behind bars for decades; being stupid is no crime.

    Being online stupid SHOULD be a crime. This is not 1988, where these scams were new online. This is fucking 2020 now.
