For some time now there has been a “news” circulating that the famous Bear Grylls has invested in bitcoin.
However, it was Bear Grylls himself who denied it on his official website beargrylls.com.
“It’s been brought to my attention that there are a number of fake stories circulating the internet linking me to fake bitcoin schemes. These are totally incorrect and false endorsements.
Please do not click through on any links or images and avoid engaging with these posts at all costs to avoid scammers taking advantage of you.
My website and official verified social media accounts showcase all of my official partnerships and endorsements.
My team and I are taking this extremely seriously and working hard to put an end to this as soon as possible”.
This is the typical fake news that is used to promote the scam of alleged automatic cryptocurrency trading software, which involves nothing more than attempts to extort money by telling lies.
The software which would have been promoted by Bear Grylls according to this fraud is Bitcoin Revolution, a well-known scam already widely exposed in the past.
In fact, not only Bear Grylls has absolutely nothing to do with it, but neither does Bitcoin. This scam is based solely and exclusively on a sequence of lies that have the sole purpose of misleading the unfortunate users into believing that they can earn a lot of money, easily, without effort and without risk.
All this is completely false, to the extent that the automated trading software probably doesn’t even exist: this is probably a lie too, although their website shows numbers that seem to suggest that there is a profit. However, these are also fake.
Edward Michael Grylls, better known as Bear, is a former British soldier, honorary lieutenant colonel in the army, but now distant from his military career.
He is best known for his TV series called Man vs. Wild, broadcast between 2006 and 2011. He is also a writer, adventurer, presenter and businessman.
As far as the scam is concerned, Bitcoin Revolution promises returns of up to 20% per day, with a probability of loss of less than 1%. This is sufficient to understand that it is a scam, since only a fraudster can use blatant lies like these to convince someone to give money.
Sadly, not only are there false news that promote this scam, but also alleged debunking sites that, while admitting that it’s fake news, pretend that the absurd promises found on sites such as Bitcoin Revolution, Bitcoin Future or Bitcoin Trader are true.
The only way to avoid falling into these traps is to remember that cryptocurrencies are a high-risk investment, so anyone who promises returns without highlighting the risks involved is certainly lying.
