The lawsuit against David Pike, Mark Scott’s Ponzi OneCoin money laundering partner, has come to an end
The largest Ponzi project in the cryptocurrency market has now come to an end. The New York Southern District Court has allowed the case to continue against David Pike, CEO of private equity fund Fenero Funds, on charges of money laundering for Ponzi OneCoin.
New York Court proceeds against David Pike allegedly connected with Ponzi Onecoin
According to information from the financial news website FinanceFeed, the Pike lawsuit was approved until January 12, 2020, based on court documents submitted on December 20. As an executive of an alleged private equity fund known as the Fenero Funds, Pike has participated in money laundering from the Ponzi OneCoin model. Pike is accused of making false statements about money to agents from the FBI, the IRS Criminal Investigation Division, and the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York representatives.
Assistant United States Attorney Nicholas Folly announces the following:
“The parties’ counsels are discussing a potential pre-indictment disposition. The extension has been registered as appropriate, given that those discussions are still taking place.”
Pike appealed and said he knew nothing about the $ 400 mln amount transferred to the Fenero Funds or the OneCoin founder, Ruja Ignatova.
However, Pike’s testimony was rejected. Moreover, OneCoin’s official website finally shut down just a few months after the US authorities prosecuted one of their founders for running the $ 4 billion Ponzi scheme. As such, perhaps the largest Ponzi cryptocurrency market is gradually coming to an end.

After a court session three weeks ago, Mark S. Scott, a former equity partner at the law firm Locke Lord LLP, was sentenced to money laundering of about $ 400 mln – the proceeds from Ponzi OneCoin. Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Cyrus R. Vance Jr., the District Attorney for New York County, accused Scott of laundering money through fraudulent hedge funds that he established and operated for that purpose. Scott was paid over $ 50 million for his money-laundering services. He used the money to buy a luxury car, a yacht, and some beach houses.

“Mark S.

He lined his pockets with over $ 50 million of the money stolen from victims of the OneCoin scheme. Scott, who boasted of earning ‘50 by 50’, now faces 50 years in prison for his crimes.”
