Elon Musk New Trading Platform - SCAM
What is The Trading Platform?
It is really just a website, and the web page for the trading platform is what is known as fake news. The fake news is an article that has been created to fool the reader into thinking an old Elon Musk television interview was actually about something else, a new trading platform.
This latest Elon Musk scam is another 'marketing campaign' of false news and misinformation for Bitcoin Profit, just the same as the campaigns we have seen for the Bitcoin Rush and Bitcoin Circuit scams.
How is the Scam Publicised?
It is being advertised on FaceBook:
As you can see they are advertising using the domain warehousemens.com, which would be highly unlikely for Elon Musk, as he would just use Twitter.
The website that you are taken to, is a fake news article featuring a television interview that actually occurred years ago. For some reason they use the UK newspaper The Mirror even though they are presumably trying to defraud US citizens??
We are presuming that they use the same website to defraud both UK and US citizens, and that the Facebook adverts in the US take you through to a different landing page. We were browsing this site from a UK IP address.
What is the Fake New About?
As far as the article itself is concerned - it is the usual nonsense - impossible wealth for everyone on Earth for nothing except a single deposit of $250 of whatever your local currency is. Elon Musk is helping everyone make money for free even though it will obviously devalue his own wealth. To the majority of people it will also make no difference as all this would really do is devalue currency. Instead of just getting by on 15k you would just get by on 1500k.
Lots of ridiculous testimonies and other nonsense as well as various fake Facebooks feeds.
It is the usual story.
Obviously it is a scam.
This time Elon is appearing on the CBS show 'This Morning' which is a show on CBS in the US and is generally about home and family issues as well as being a place that the women of America can stay up to date with home and celebrity issues in much the same way as the ITV show of the same name in Britain.
The alleged interview is supposedly conducted by Gayle King who is a famous host of the show in the US and can be seen below interviewing Elon back in December 2018. The interview was a family friendly introduction to the Boring Company as well as a scoop for Tesla cars which had a sudden boost to the share prices following the interest that this interview generated. This interview had nothing to do with investment, and this fake news scam is obviously using the same tactics we saw being used with Holly Willoughby in the UK. Holly occupies a very similar role to Gayle on TV and in the public eye in Britain.
What is the Fake News Campaign About?
The campaign asserts that Elon Musk appeared on the show recently to exhibit some sort of magical software that makes everyone rich for an investment of only $250 USD. Once an investor deposits this money, a software or website magically makes automatic trades in crypto-currency or share markets which make investors rich while they sleep. The whole concept is so ridiculous it is surprising that it has not just been destroyed by the press so that it is no longer a threat to anyone.
The campaign asserts that Gayle invests this $250 deposit live on television and starts to make money before the central banks have the programme shutdown, as they are worried that everyone will learn the trick. It is utterly stupid.
The campaign then claims that the reporter writing the article checked the facts themselves after seeing the show and can reveal that the software does indeed make you rich without any risk or having to do any work.
The fake article spends a lot of time showing old pictures, which still contain pictures of Richard Branson, who they have tried to connect this scam to previously in the UK. There are other images too, showing how you can withdraw your money and make a fortune easily, which are obviously all fake.
What Are They Selling?
Any link within the article simply forwards you to the Bitcoin Profit page, which is a scam to get you investing with offshore, unregulated brokers. These boiler room scammers will take control of your PC to transfer your funds to Bitcoin and then Ethereum and then to their own bank accounts. This tactic has been around a long time and the scammers use fake web pages to make you think that your money has actually been transferred into a broker's trading platform. The boiler room scammers then increase the balance in the hope that you will invest more. Some people have invested their life savings. Then the scammers quietly disappear and all of the telephone numbers stop working, and you realise what you are seeing on this 'trading platform' is not real. Welcome to the boiler room scam.
This particular Bitcoin Profit page is here: https://wellfragoffers.com/btc-profit-multi/en/index.html?d=1 on a fake Wells Fargo URL. These adverts also point to Bitcoin Rush, Bitcoin Circuit, Bitcoin Era and Bitcoin Loophole.
Here is the latest Bitcoin Profit video - it really is quite frightening how they try to take advantage of people:
As you can see it is targeting the most vulnerable people and is using the coldest techniques. It really is disgusting.
This is not a trading scam, it is just simple fraud. They will steal your money and give you a fake trading screen to watch while they make their getaway.
Do not trust these people no matter who they pretend they are associated with
