FBI Most Wanted: eight fugitives wanted by the United States - including ‘cryptoqueen’ Ruja Ignatova

The crimes the fugitives are wanted in connection with span from 2000 to 2020

A woman accused of being part of a $4 billion cryptocurrency fraud and a man accused of murdering his wife the day after they got married are among the FBI’s most wanted fugitives.

The FBI as of January 2023 has eight people - seven men and one woman on its most wanted list. The only woman on the list is Ruja Ignatova, who is wanted over her alleged involvement in a massive cryptocurrency fraud scheme known as OneCoin.

In the majority of the cases rewards of $100,000 are being offered for information that leads to the arrest of the wanted fugitives. However, the reward for one of them - a man called Jose Rodolfo Villarreal-Hernandez, who is wanted in connection with directing people to track and murder a man in Texas, is up to $1 million.

Anyone with any information about the whereabouts of the fugitives should contact their local FBI office if in the US, or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate. Here are the eight fugitives on the FBI’s most wanted list.
