Daniel Craig Bitcoin scam lures investors with fancy returns

Daniel Craig Bitcoin scam lures investors with fancy returns

A new Daniel Craig Bitcoin scam, called ‘Bitcoin Era,’ is doing the rounds on the internet and targeting crypto enthusiasts by promising huge returns on crypto investments. The scam is viral on Youtube and many other online sites. The scamsters promise high returns through cryptocurrency trading and feature fake endorsements from celebrities like 007 star Daniel Craig and Elon Musk.

The ad claims to make ‘Brits’ millionaires within a few months. It is nothing but a textbook crypto scam laced hidden under an automated crypto trading robot.

Daniel Craig Bitcoin scam uses simple yet effective deception

The Daniel Craig Bitcoin scam has lured many gullible investors with its cheap tactics. Business Insider reports that the scam is promoted via a Youtube video ad titled ‘Bond franchise comes to an end’ to create a fake hype. The release of the upcoming Bond flick ‘No Time to Die’ has been delayed due to the Coronavirus outbreak. The fake YouTube ad uses this news to attract the readers and then tricks them into clicking on a link that relates to a cryptocurrency scam.

In the next step, the readers are fed a post that links 007’s Daniel Craig to making millions from home. It is here that the Daniel Craig Bitcoin scam promises unreasonable returns on their investments, and potential victims are lured with promises of becoming an overnight crypto millionaire.

The scamsters promote the Bitcoin Era as an automatic trading robot that generates huge returns on autopilot. The ad claims that the technology has the backing of tech giants Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Richard Branson. Crypto scammers have often used Elon Musk’s name in the past to trap investors. Furthermore, the ad entices the readers with automated returns, lifetime happiness, and prosperous life. Fortunately, YouTube has pulled down the scam-laden ad.

Bitcoin Era scam is gaining ground on social media

YouTube is not the only promotional platform of the Bitcoin Era. The scam has roots in many other popular social media channels. Unfortunately, many online review websites have posts promoting Bitcoin Era trading robot scam. The reviewers claim the robot is legit and promises easy returns on autopilot trading.
