OneCoin has a history of empty legal threatening

Now that OneCoin has been threatening bloggers and individuals opposing the scam with legal actions, it's a good time to remind people that the ponzi has tried this measure before - although not in this scale.

In February 2015 OneCoin's Head of Legal and Compliance Department "Irina" approached Finnish blogger Petteri Järvinen with a threatening letter intimidating him with legal actions if Järvinen decided not to remove this blog post labeling OneCoin as a scam.

The message from Bulgaria contained the following threats:
Nevertheless we do not tolerate aggressive behavior and harmful usage of our mark; business scope; websites and its content.

In relation to the above, we hereby kindly ask you to remove immediately the article in question. In case you are not willing to comply with our request, and to contact us personally, to discuss in an appropriate manner the allegations in your article, we will be forced to take the appropriate measures to protect our legitimate rights and interests.

Järvinen never removed the blog post in question. As a matter of fact he went even further and published this blog post making OneCoin's legal threat public and concluding it was in fact a further proof about the true nature of OneCoin as a scam.

There has been no legal actions taken by OneCoin against Järvinen, who has been publicly opposing the scam since the early 2015 on his blog as well as in Finnish media.


  1. FYI: Onecoin Head of Legal and Compliance is (was?) Irina Dilkinski

    1. That's more than likely - and to be more precise, it's "Irina Dilkinska". However, according to Järvinen the email message he received was signed by only her first name.
