New Zealand BTC scam was launched over the past days using the radio and TV personality Duncan Garner and as we can read in the latest cryptocurrency news today, he rebuked the fraudsters for using his identity.
Garner made clear that he has no involvement in the New Zealand BTC scam which was named as a lucrative Bitcoin investment scam. According to Newshub, the broadcaster has been forced to denounce the social media schemes which use his photo to dupe the people into investing their money in cryptocurrencies. When he was speaking on his morning program the AM show, Garner denied any involvement in the fraudulent Bitcoin Investment schemes:
“Can I say now publicly that’s not me on Facebook pumping up Bitcoin and fancy cars and wealth schemes. It’s not me.”
Garner clarified that he had received many questions from people who wondered about his financial success since they had seen pictures of him on social media ads depicting him as a bitcoin promoter. He added:
Garner clarified that he had received questions from people wondering about his financial success since they had seen social media ads depicting him “pushing Bitcoin.”
“They’re not my cars, I don’t do Bitcoin – I don’t do any of that ‘coin’ I haven’t been on Facebook for a couple of years.”
The use of his picture and person doesn’t seem to be restricted on Facebook. On Medium, however, the cryptocurrency investment scheme claims to be using the ‘’bitcoin Evolution Duncan Garner system’’ in order to make up to #13,000 in 24 hours. The BTC trading system claims to have special software that is able to generate quickly up massive profits with high accuracy. The scheme keeps changing the web addresses as others are taken down and the scam even claims to offer the software for free with a trading deposit fee of $250. In one of the sales of the scam where a minimum of daily profit of $1,300 is guaranteed, the users are assured that they can become millionaires within the first two months of joining the team and working for an average of just 20 minutes a day.
Of course, the software for trading claimed to have an accuracy rate of 99.4 percent as we read in the reports in the altcoin news. Garner was not the only prominent New Zealander to be used by bitcoins scammers in order to lure unsuspecting victims. Three months ago it was also reported that the images of New Zealand’s richest man Richard Graeme Hart were also used in order to lure people into investing in a bitcoin scam.

US Treasury Sanctioned Major North Korean Hacker Groups For Cyberattacks
“Treasury is taking action against North Korean hacking groups that have been perpetrating cyber attacks to support illicit weapon and missile programs. [...] We will continue to enforce existing U.S. and UN sanctions against North Korea and work with the international community to improve cybersecurity of financial networks.”In August this year, many best cryptocurrency news sites talked about the US Treasury and its attempts to sanction hacker groups. The news also reported that the United Nations claimed that North Korea had netted around $2 billion by hacking banks and cryptocurrency exchanges. The UN Security Council North Korea Sanctions Committee also came up with a statement, saying that these hackers formed an essential part of the government's funding, reporting the following:
“Democratic People’s Republic of Korea cyber actors, many operating under the direction of the Reconnaissance General Bureau, raise money for its WMD (weapons of mass destruction) programs, with total proceeds to date estimated at up to two billion US dollars.”On September 1 this year, we also reported that the North Korea official state media denied allegations of massive theft by North Korean agents. The KCNA cited a statement from the National Coordination Committee of the DRPK which accused the US and other hostile forces of spreading slanderous rumors. The statement read:
“Such a fabrication by the hostile forces is nothing but a sort of a nasty game aimed at tarnishing the image of our Republic and finding justification for sanctions and pressure campaign against the DPRK.”The statement also added that the UN is "re-enacting the same old trick as the fascist propagandists of Hitler used to use."
