You may have seen celebrity endorsements of Bitcoin Revolution circulating on Facebook and Instagram, but they are all FAKE.

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

Bitcoin Revolution : Fake Lim Guan Eng Endorsement!
Here in Malaysia, a fake Malaysiakini article was being promoted on Facebook, with the title Lim’s Biggest Confession SHOCKED EVERYONE…
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.
All that is 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 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.
