Bitcoin has engaged with certain outrageous measures to scam people out for money. Regrettably, the latest may prove bizarre.
A fake letter sent out to the British citizens is alleged, asking for nearly $2.5 million in Bitcoin (BTC). The content underlined that her royal highness appeals to the readers to donate BTC as the funds will be spent to sustain the local economy after Brexit.
CEO of Skillweb, Paul Ridden posted a photo of the letter, humorously noting that he always knew that her royal highness would seek his help in times of need.
The letter states that the Royal House is looking to earn between 450,000 to 2,000,000 British pounds (from $550,000 to $2.5 million) from British citizens, asking the recipients of the letter to transfer money via BTC. In return for participation, the potential donors will earn a 30% interest rate for a period of three months, including the opportunity to become a Member of the Royal Warrant Holders Association.
Clearly, there are several waving red flags with this scam. The most weakening is the poor usage of spelling and grammar throughout the letter. The author used the unconventional phrase “the Brexit” rather than the preferred “Brexit”, “rise” instead of “raise”, and vague usage of “until” when “before” would feel much more natural.
Ridden raised confidence that nobody will send any BTC to the scammers, calling the scam attempt lame due to the letter’s poor English, while also noting a reasonable level of financial awareness in Britain.
