It's a bit like email phishing scams though I guess. I mean ... it's so obviously fake ... but people who aren't aware that deepfake technology exists (often older people) and people who are just a bit gullible will still fall for it the same as "classic" email phishing. Like I do know a guy who fell for an HMRC scam that came from "refunds.hmrc@hotmail.com" or something like that.

Rule of thumb though is assess the content of what you're hearing and not the source/claimed source. If it sounds like BS... it's probably BS, whether it has an uncanny rubbery faced Martin Lewis on the cover or not.

Yes he was talking about this Early
on GMBHD itv

He said he used to go into a building
alot (I assume BBC Central London for Radio5)
he met a Security Guard going in,
he thanked Martin for the Cash he is making
Showed Martin a Photo of him on a Site
on his phone.
Martin told him it is Scam
he never does adverts.

It took Martin 10mins to convince
that happy Security Guard
they are Criminals taking his money.

Because he does a Regular Interview
ITV from his home office.


It was good that helped that stupid security guard
who thought Martins face on a Trading Bitcoin (looking) site
was how to make thousands....................................


You make a Fair Point.


This why is GMBHD itv
is worth having on with subtitles
when a good story is on
rewind and watch it.

Fair point. The man makes an absolute fortune out of "fighting for the little guy". He's just found a good grift really.

Well there's grifting and grifting. He's no Jack Monroe. He's okay, by and large.
