McAdam, which is part of the BBC Sounds Cryptoqueen podcast, which investigates the fraud, has invested thousands of dollars of its own money in fraud. Then, he convinced his family and friends to do the same thing, which together contributed around USD 277,000. She says:
"I know through various groups of victims around the world that people like me are affected. They invest their life savings, protect their homes and convince their friends and family to get involved and feel as bad as me for all this because we are all deceived . "
McAdams added that there were around 70,000 OneCoin victims in the UK, "but it looks like they are lagging behind, nobody seems to be interested in this."
