Another probably scam on Facebook.

in #blog9 months ago

I was on my phone today and got a lovely personal message from the co-founder of STEEM @ned, which i presume is from being a fan on the Facebook group for STEEM and participation on some of their posts.

Obviously as a big STEEM fan and user, I was very flattered to be reached out to in this way and had to take a closer look. It appears that I have been chosen for a unique investment opportunity involving both Ned Scott and John Mcafee. How could I turn down an chance like this to make untold amounts of money.

Now as a user with some respect for my computer and my crypto holding I didn't actually click into any links send to me by @ned even though I'm sure it's totally legitimate........

However some other fans of the page might click into them so just a heads up for anybody still on Facebook and for @ned or other members of the team that might want to give @ned a heads up that his name is being used in this way. @elipowell @andrarchy @roadscape.

Checked the actual profile of the sender and it's set up as Ned Scott with steemit logo's and crypto in the profile but only 88 friends and a few posts. I reported it but they might want to do it themselves.



My dream is to one day also be a big name in crypto that people will use my name and likeness to scam other people I think that’s when you know you’ve made it in the blockchain space

I'll set it up straight away. I'm thinking of a sex doll and bitcoin scam of some sort. You'll know when you see it.

Lol, what the hell?

Maybe times are tough and this is his latest venture. :D

No worries. I'm sure he wouldn't want his name being used around Facebook like this. Especially if it's targeting fans of the STEEM facebook page. I know I wouldn't.
