ANT McPartlin and Dragon’s Den stars have been used as the unwitting faces of a global Bitcoin scam.

Their images and false quotes have been used to lure unsuspecting victims into a get-rich-quick Bitcon con on websites and social media.

Ant McPartlin's images have been used to peddle a global bitcoin scam

Crooks have used Ant’s name and photograph to claim he launched his own Bitcoin firm after appearing on the BBC Two show Dragons’ Den with a business partner.

In one fake story, it claims Ant’s “plan” was pitching their idea of an automated bitcoin trading platform called Bitcoin Revolution.

The story on MyBizette reports: “Appearing on BBC Two's hit show, Dragons' Den, Ant McPartlin and his young business partner, a computer genius from MIT, pitched their idea for an automated bitcoin trading platform, called Bitcoin Revolution.

“The idea was simple: allow the average person the opportunity to cash in on the bitcoin boom. Even if they have absolutely no investing or technology experience.”

It goes on to further claim that Dragons’ Den star Deborah Meaden deposited £250 to Bitcoin Revolution live on the show.

Meaden was quoted as saying: “I'm still in shock, I deposited £250 live on the show and it immediately returned a £73.18 profit after just 3 minutes. That is the biggest and fastest return I've ever seen after 3 minutes. This thing is legit.”

However, Bitcoin Revolution has been debunked as a scam.

Unsuspecting investors make deposits into a trading account that is set up by the fraudsters and then they are given access to convincing-looking trading platforms.

Bitcoin Revolution has been debunked as a scam

The money they invest is never used to buy the cryptocurrency and it is taken by the crooks who refuse to return any of the funds.

It is unclear how many thousands of people have been scammed from this site as other trading websites have warned not to fall for its too-good-to-be-true tricks.

A reporter for Cytpo Coin Spy said: “Bitcoin Revolution is a scam.

“Anyone familiar with the cryptocurrency market, the scam is painfully obvious and reeks of the kind of ridiculous hyperbole and unlikely endorsements that would never be seen in a genuine investment opportunity.

“Unfortunately, however, there are many thousands of naive and unseasoned investors out there who are all too willing to get a piece of the Bitcoin pie.

“Through them, it is believed the scam has claimed many thousands of dollars in stolen investments.”

The Sun Online has approached Meaden and McPartlin’s representatives for comment.
