Ruja Ignatova is the self-styled ‘Cryptoqueen’ behind OneCoin, a cryptocurrency that has been described as a pyramid scheme, and has defrauded investors large and small of billions of dollars. When serious questions began to be asked about OneCoin in 2017, Ignatova disappeared. She’s now been placed on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list (opens in new tab) (thanks, BBC (opens in new tab)).

The FBI uses this when it believes the public might be able to help find someone, and Ignatova has now been missing for just under five years. The notice says that “Ignatova is believed to travel with armed guards and/or associates. Ignatova may have had plastic surgery or otherwise altered her appearance.”
