Anyone know anything about this?

***************************************

Edit: The link gets hijacked......and transforms into a McWlliams article!?

Basically, the article I wanted to link to is about McGee (of RTE financial planning fame) investing in software to help people trade successfully in Bitcoin? It seems extra extra ordinary?!

It is very likely one of those websites which use fake celebrity endorsements to scam people.

I have emailed Eoin with a link to it.

On 25 July 2019, he was very dismissive of cryptocurrencies.


It's about 12 minutes into it.

"Even if you think it's a great thing, don't put more than 1% of your portfolio into it."

"I have never heard of XRP. I gave up the day I heard about banana coin"

I can create a Brendan Coin or an AskAboutMoney coin and you can allocate it based on post likes, or you can just keep it all yourself and say it is worth 10 million euros.

edit: There is a good BBC podcast ("The Missing CryptoQueen") on OneCoin which was essentially a Ponzi scheme. Fraudsters will look to take advantage of any system, so we should not tarnish all crypto with the same notion that they are all frauds.

Hi Elacs

As a matter of interest, how did you come across that website?

What search terms were you using?

Or did you get an email about it?

The scam alludes to offer access to this amazing [fake] trading bot. It's just one of a long line of scams that uses people's misunderstanding of cryptocurrencies to hoodwink them. You don't need an intermediary to add bitcoin to your portfolio other than a well recognised cryptocurrency exchange. If someone is cold calling you regarding cryptocurrency, then most likely you are being pitched a scam.

Point well made.

Is Eoin a member on here ?
I've always watched his programme on rte and find it a great learning curve.
