This is the same format in which other cases we have already told you about are spread. This scam circulates imitating an article of El Mundo about an alleged program of El Hormiguero and the text is repeated changing the names of the protagonist and the name of the scam (Immediate Edge, Bitcoin Evolution, CryptoBoom, Bitcoin Trader, Bitcoin Revolution, Bitcoin Era…).
Throughout this publication appear alleged cases of anonymous people who have invested in this “program” who are actually models of an image bank. Moreover, they always use the same images to talk about the supposed success stories.

In fact, the Computer Crime Section of the Seville Prosecutor’s Office currently has ten investigations open for cryptocurrency scams committed internationally and that have their bases of operations in Eastern countries such as Albania, Ukraine or Poland, specifies the prosecutor, who warns, however, that the volume of these crimes is much higher, because most of these complaints are filed “for lack of known perpetrator.”
The investigator of the Economic Crime group of the Police agrees with the prosecutor that this type of fraud has increased. These are complex matters to investigate, in which “a very high percentage do not obtain results” and in which it is difficult to recover the money, since on many occasions they are destined for bank accounts located in “tax havens”.

That night Vicente Vallés, journalist and presenter of Antena 3’s nightly news program, attended the program. But it was not only him who answered the unique questions of the “Iberian Press Conference” section created by the ants Trancas and Barrancas. Motos also took advantage of one of those questions to explain how he went bankrupt in just a few hours.
The interviewee assured that “unfortunately” he had not invested, since “there have been those who have made a fortune with them”. It was then when Pablo Motos commented: “Yes, there is always someone who has made a fortune”. And then, he revealed, without mincing words, his experience with stock market investments, surprising all the viewers.
