A new bitcoin scam has emerged using the false likeness of British Royals Harry and Meghan Markle to dupe potential investors.
According to a report by British outlet The Mirror, scam artists are using a fraudulent BBC story featuring the likeness of Prince Harry and Megan Markle to drive investment into their crypto scheme.
The fraud ad alleges the royal couple appeared on a television show to discuss a “wealth loophole” that can “transform anyone into a millionaire within three to four months.” The ad claims the couple is using cryptocurrency to become “financially independent” and take a step back from their duties as members of the Royal Family.
The ad reads,
Prince Hary and Meghan's #Megxit have attracted a lot of attention coming out with new secret investemtn that's making hundreds of people in Britain very rich.
The fake report directs users to a crypto trading program called Bitcoin Evolution, with a website telling investors they can “become the next millionaire.” The website includes a series of false testimonials, with fake users claiming to have made thousands of dollars per day.
Users are required to deposit a minimum of $250 in order to begin using the service.
