Rob Brydon has become the latest target of the boiler room scam advertisers.
WATCH OUT!!! THIS IS NOT THE:
As we can clearly see, these articles are actually suggesting that Rob Brydon was interviewed on the New At Ten on BBC TV.
He is being touted as a supposed guest on a talk show segment of the BBC News At Ten that revealed he actually makes all of his money from automated Bitcoin trading robots instead of being famous and on television.
Here is an example seen today at https://profit-gold-strategy.life/?u=bdlkd0x&o=x7t8nng with the links on the site taking you through to a Bitcoin Billionaire scam site here: https://be-btcsite.com/ although the site mostly talks about Bitcoin Futures nut it is all the same scam.
What is this News Article?
This fake new article is the latest in a long line of advertising campaigns used by the boiler room scammer network in order to defraud people out of their savings. The tactic is very simple, to persuade people that a celebrity has appeared on television and demonstrated an amazing new app that automatically makes money day and night. The story is that (in this case) Rob Brydon has appeared on television being interview by Michael Buerk and has shown Michael that he has a new money making scheme running on his phone. Michael is supposedly impressed and tries the app himself making money during the show. The next paragraph claims that HSBC then phone the show and the producers are forced top stop broadcasting.
What is the Scam?
The scam is that this article fools people into believing these ridiculous technologies are even real and being resold to people by using the association of normally trustable sources such as the BBC, Michael Buerk and Rob Brydon to try and give credibility to their boiler room scam. They use the familiar logos and faces to try and get you to feel confident about this product and when you read how easy to use and profitable it is, you get excited and fill in the form before you give it due consideration. Once they have your number they commence their boiler room scam.
What is a Boiler Room Scam?
A boiler room scam is essentially a process of bullying people to invest in financial products that they have not checked and do not fully understand. You make deposits, often by cryptocurrency, into sites that are registered overseas and then they simply steal your money under the guise of you losing trades with huge leveraging (where what you bid is only aa fraction of what you win or lose at the end of the contract) so you can stake $500 USD and wind up owing them $50,000 USD. Really you can. Whether they really made those bids for you or just stole your money is almost impossible to prove and their terms and conditions sew you up like a beached kip[per anyway so there is little chance of comeback or any sort of legal remedy.
So What Happens is I Click on one of the Links?
Well firstly you are taken through to a page that promises you the amazing lifestyle everyone always dreams of, here are a few examples of the Bitcoin Billionaire sites they might show you:
Bitcoin Billionaire Sites seen recently...
Now we have substituted the links in the Rob Brydon page with our own fake Bitcoin Trading Platform Bitcoin Sucker (https://www.BitcoinSucker.com) which we run just for a laugh and cannot trade or take anyone's money, but the video is amusing to us as we know about the scams and what they try to achieve. You can be sure that we have not developed a quantum computing artificially intelligent app in partnership with aliens who want to probe your butthole in real life.
What is the Danger?
Well you are staring right at it on that page. The danger is the contact details entry form. This is their goal and their means to defraud people. As soon as they have your mobile number you will be terrorised by phone scammers promising you massive wealth if you deposit money into their systems. Let's go back to the first page though, and see how they are trying to use Mr. Brydon to defraud the British public:
How Do They Scam Us?
Well they start out with something familiar, like this:
So this is obviously a lie. You cannot promote products on the BBC except under certain conditions, such as a book or film when you're on Graham Norton or something. There is no way a money making app would appear on BBC Two for purely political reasons, and if such a remarkable app was to appear in the Guardian you can bet on it becoming newsworthy, so you would've found out by now.
So the first trick they use is subterfuge. Impersonating something familiar in order to introduce something alien.
We can see this at play further with the images they use:
