Bitcoin scam mentioning Italian singer Jovanotti

A scam has been circulating for some time, according to which the Italian singer Jovanotti invested in a Bitcoin trading program which allegedly made him a millionaire.

According to this fabrication, an alleged article in Caffeina Magazine, which later turned out to be fake, would reveal that Jovanotti was featured on TV by Barbara D’Urso to reveal that he is making money thanks to an automatic cryptocurrency trading program, called Bitcoin Billionaire, which can allow anyone to become a millionaire simply by investing a few hundred euros. 

Obviously, it is all fake, to the extent that Jovanotti himself has then had the opportunity to disprove everything himself during an episode of the Italian TV show Striscia la Notizia

Furthermore, it must be pointed out that not only Jovanotti has nothing to do with this scam, but neither does Caffeina Magazine or Bitcoin. 

The fraudsters simply use these names, without having obtained any authorization from their owners, to spread scams aimed at convincing unsuspecting people to actually deposit a few hundred euros. 

Actually, in several cases, some people who have fallen victim of these frauds have then revealed that they have been contacted several times by the criminals who have tried to convince them, often unfortunately with success, to give them more money, resorting to the same trick. 

The fact is that, by using resounding names, as well as promising high earnings without effort and in a short time, they manage to trick the naive who do not check the truthfulness of what is claimed before sending money. 

Jovanotti is just one of the famous Italian celebrities to have been exploited in this way since fraudsters have used dozens and dozens of other celebrities over the years. 

Striscia la Notizia, for example, has also allowed Diletta Leotta, Antonella Clerici, Enrico Brignano and other well-known faces, especially from TV, to deny these scams, and Paolo Bonolis, Berlusconi, Salvini, Bill Gates, Elon Musk and many others have also been involved. 

Moreover, these scams are almost all the same: only the names change. 

Even the scam that is advertised changes name, because if it’s not Bitcoin Billionaire it’s Bitcoin Code, or Bitcoin Evolution, or Crypto Engine, or similar, but it always involves a promise to earn large profits quickly, without any effort and investing only a few hundred euros. 

In reality, every time someone promises very high earnings with cryptocurrencies, without saying that these are high-risk investments with which it is quite possible to lose, they are lying, even if they quote sources that may seem authoritative.
