Despite being proven to be a scam on numerous occasions
over the past few years, Bitcoin Revolution continues to operate, using new celebrities with each and every iteration.
Its newest target is none other than Australian celeb Hugh Jackman
, most popular for his portrayal of Wolverine in the X-Men movies. The scam has once again created a new name for it’s latest endeavors, now using the rather simple and obvious moniker Bitcoin Evolution. However, despite the blatant similarity, some
crypto news websites continue to be tricked into believing the scam is real – or are simply happy to accept payment to promote it.
In the past the system has used celebrity chef Jamie Oliver,
billionaire tycoon Richard Branson
and tech billionaire Bill Gates
to promote its illegal activities. It seems they are able to operate above the law and have no concerns about fraudulently using video and images of rich and powerful celebrities to promote their scam. The latest Bitcoin Evolution scam was recently exposed
by the crypto scam investigation website ScamCryptoRobots.com
, which even went to the trouble of signing up and creating an account just to prove how fake the whole system is.
As in previous versions of the scam, the new site makes ridiculous claims like a 99.4% trading accuracy, 0.01-second no-risk trade execution and bogus awards from non-existent associations. Once an unwitting and naive investor has signed up and turned over $250 of their hard-earned cash, they reportedly receive a barrage of unsolicited calls from “sleazy sales reps” with indistinguishable accents. Rather than being informed how much their lucrative new investment has earned them, investors are simply pressured into parting with even more of their money.
The website is able to continue spreading like a virus due to the thousands of mirror-sites it creates on a weekly basis – all with very similar characteristics but featuring altered names and other slight differences. Some of the copycat site names that clearly represent the same scam include Bitcoin Formula, Bitcoin Secret, Bitcoin Trader, and the original, Bitcoin Revolution. In addition to the high-profile billionaires mentioned above, images and video of smaller sports stars and celebrities like Conor McGregor, Jeremy Clarkson, and Jacinda Ardern have also been used illegally by the scammers.
We will always endeavor to warn our readers about such scams and attempt to expose the perpetrators in whatever way possible. When choosing to invest in cryptocurrency, users must always take adequate time to investigate any scheme and remember the golden rule: if it seems too good to be true, it almost always is.
