Actor Cillian Murphy from Peaky Blinders and Batman is being used to promote a Bitcoin get-rich-quick scheme named ‘Bitcoin Profit’. Industry sources claim that Murphy was outraged yet not surprised when he saw his name associated with fraudulent Bitcoin Trading software which guarantees returns and massive profits for its members.
Viewers exposed to the fake news websites are baited by various forms of hyped-up claims about easy it is to be “making millions from the comfort of your own home” and how “lucrative” trading cryptocurrencies can be.
It’s worth pointing out that other websites such as “Bitcoin Revolution”, Bitcoin Era, and “Immediate Edge” carry the same distinct nature, and have been branded by various review sites as get-rich-quick schemes.
What Is Bitcoin Profit?
Bitcoin Profit is a fake online trading website which promises insane returns and minimal risk. This trading platform (just like many others) is trying to ride the “Bitcoin wave of success” and entice uneducated or uninformed viewers to join and invest.
The Grim Reality
Once members decide to risk their money and invest using the Bitcoin Profit app they get scammed and lose their capital to offshore brokers located in shady jurisdictions such as the Cayman Islands or Seychelles.
How To Buck The Trend and Avoid fake Apps
Simply put, if it sounds too good to be true it usually is. The usual giveaways or red flags include inflated bank accounts, hyped-up or exaggerated claims of easy money, fake testimonials, and zero transparency. If you feel you are about to get scammed just stop and ask someone you trust. In most cases you will end up saving a pretty penny and a hefty dose of frustration.
