I doubt that the Advert is a Scam. However, you need to ask.

How are they planning to make money out of it?

And.

Who is likely to make most? Because, I assume, that the risk is all yours

Bitcoin has not gone well this year, values below half where they were before Christmas last year and any price rises soon reversed. I would absolutely not invest any money in Bitcoin I can not afford to lose. As for Bitcoin Trader, have to agree that there is a strong of too good to be true about it and reviews I've looked at look more like ads for Bitcoin Trader.

The way to look at things like this is always the same.....

If it really was so good, we would all be doing it.

Over the years we have been running this forum, I have lost count of the number of get rich quick schemes that have come and gone, and in my opinion this is just another example.

I look forward to hearing from anyone who can prove me wrong, but I'm not holding my breath.

I did think, if it was so good a scheme why were the 'inventors' making it public when they could have kept all the profits for themselves...

Oh ~Dear, it's another SCAM

A fake Bitcoin scam using the stars of Ireland's Dragon's Den to dupe victims into parting with their cash has been uncovered.

The scam purports to offer a new way of trading cryptocurrency for the average person - through a platform called BitCoin Trader.

Thanks for all the replies and will not be investing but why are Facebook allowing this ad in the first place.

  rdave13 09:36 15 Apr 2018

That's a good question. Just logged on to Facebook, which I rarely use, on my laptop and it's changed. Using AdGuard Adblocker I don't see any adverts at all. I would just ignore the ads you see and not click on any.
