According to a popular announcement on behalf of RTE One Channel (one of the oldest public service broadcasters in the world) and The Irish Times, the Irish broadcaster Patrick Kenny, widely known for his daily radio show The Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk, just found a “wealth loophole” with Bitcoin.

The publication states that he recently appeared (for some reason) on “The late night show” with the presenter Ryan Tubridy, to share “any tips he had on building wealth”. And then, he would reveal this for all his countrymen:

“What’s made me successful is jumping into new opportunities quickly- without any hesitation. And right now, my number one money-maker is a new cryptocurrency auto-trading program called Bitcoin Billionaire. It’s the single biggest opportunity I’ve seen in my entire lifetime to build a small fortune fast. I urge everyone to check this out before the banks shut it down.”

Afterward, he would show his phone to prove how much money he was making with this new Bitcoin application, and he assured that he was skeptical at first, but a friend recommended it to him and he tried. Thanks to that, he was able to make a lot of money by doing almost nothing:

“I’m glad I tried it because it was some of the biggest and easiest money I’ve ever made. I’m talking tens of thousands of euro a day on autopilot. It’s literally the fastest way to make a windfall of cash right now. And it’s not going to last for much longer when more and more people find out about it. Or when banks shut it down for good”.

So, is this real? Everybody can access to that “wealth loophole” and make some easy money with Bitcoin…? Of course isn’t. The easy money is only a myth.

Bitcoin “something”: supposed trading on auto-pilot

That one about Pat Kenny is just another fake news identical to others with different celebrities, shows, and channels on them. They advertise themselves as part of a widely known media (as RTE); however, they never are on the official webpages, but in social media and dubious links.

What gives them away is easy to spot, though: besides the official webpage fact, they usually have bad grammar, poor knowledge of the target audience (the show by Ryan Tubridy isn’t “The late night show” but “The late late show”, by example) and make difficult-to-believe promises of absolute wealth only by investing around 250 USD in their supposed automatic-trading platform.

Besides, these scammers work under several names, usually starting with Bitcoin: Bitcoin Billionaire is only one of many. Bitcoin Evolution, Bitcoin Time, Bitcoin Trader, Bitcoin Future, Bitcoin Superstar, Bitcoin Lifestyle, Bitcoin Era, Bitcoin Revolution, Bitcoin Storm, Bitcoin Loophole, Bitcoin Compass, Bitcoin Method, and even BTC Profit or CriptoRobot: they’re all part of the same fraudulent network, searching for more victims to deposit real BTC and fiat money in exchange of nothing.

The Singaporean tycoon Peter Lim was another personality involved in this kind of malicious posts, and he already reported it to the police. Megan Markle and Prince Harry were other celebrities impersonated by this scam. In the same way, were Jim Davidson (UK), James Corden (UK), Andrew Forrest (Australia); and even Martín Vizcarra (President of Peru) and Iván Duque (President of Colombia) were used as a lure to attract victims.

Be alert. Don’t believe in everything, especially if there’s money involved. Always research before investing.
