Lim Guan Eng Bitcoin Revolution Hoax Exposed!

 

Bitcoin Revolution : What Is It?

Bitcoin Revolution is an online “investment” scheme that people have been warning against for many years now.

They are notorious for using fake celebrity endorsements on Facebook, Instagram, etc to scam gullible people.

They have been caught using people like Kate Winslet and Hugh Jackman to former Singaporean prime minister Goh Choo Tong.

  • Fake Jeremy Clarkson Bitcoin Revolution article

The Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) issued no less than two warnings about Bitcoin Revolution in January 2019 and August 2019.

Bitcoin Revolution is likely to be an international “get-rich-quick” cryptocurrency scam. The public should therefore refrain from undertaking any business or transactions with the entity operating under the name of Bitcoin Revolution

 

Lim Guan Eng Endorsed Bitcoin Revolution?

Here in Malaysia, a fake Malaysiakini article was being promoted on Facebook, with the title Lim’s Biggest Confession SHOCKED EVERYONE…

Lim Guan Eng MalaysiaKini fake Facebook advertisement

The article, designed to look like a genuine Malaysiakini article, claimed that Malaysian politician Lim Guan Eng told Nabil Ahmad on the TV show MeleTOP how he made his fortune using the Bitcoin Revolution platform.

It even claimed that Lim Guan Eng showed off how much he made, before specifically endorsing Bitcoin Revolution.

They are all FAKE. There is no such segment on MeleTOP, and no such article on Malaysiakini. Lim Guan Eng never made such an endorsement.

How do we know this is yet another fake celebrity endorsement?

Reason #1 : That Is A Fake Art News Page

The people behind this fake endorsement created a fake Facebook page on 2 March 2020 to masquerade as the ARTnews magazine, whose genuine Facebook page was created on 13 February 2009.

Reason #2 : The Fake Article Is Hosted On Nelassa.com

The Facebook advertisement was designed to look like it will lead you to Malaysiakini, but it actually leads to a hidden page on Nelassa.com.

Nelassa itself masquerades as a new website on cell and plant biology, with articles going back to December 2019. But a quick check shows that the domain was only registered in February 2020.

Even more interestingly, the owner of this domain blocked access to his/her name and contact – always a suspicious sign!

Reason #3 : The Links Lead To SecuredSheep.com

The fake article of Lim Guan Eng endorsing Bitcoin Revolution is replete with links to Bitcoin Revolution. But if you inspect the links, they all lead to SecuredSheep.com.

Interestingly, SecuredSheep.com is also protected by the same company – Domain Protection Services, Inc.

 

Please AVOID Bitcoin Revolution

Let us repeat what the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) warned in January 2019 and August 2019.

Bitcoin Revolution is likely to be an international “get-rich-quick” cryptocurrency scam.

The public should therefore refrain from undertaking any business or transactions with the entity operating under the name of Bitcoin Revolution.
