    Yes. The Web address gives it away.

    BBC Web address is bbc.com or bbc.co.uk then /news. None of thier addresses have hyphens in them.

    It's a classic clickbait con.

    The more I learn, the more I grow.
    The more I grow, the more I see.
    The more I see, the more I know.
    The more I know, the more I see,
    How little I know.!!

    Hi. Martin has asked me to tell you I'm a (novice) Board Guide on the Competitions, Site Feedback and Campaigns boards. I'm a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly, and I can move and merge posts there. Board guides are not moderators and don't read every post. If you spot an abusive or illegal post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com (it's not part of my role to deal with abuse). Any views are mine and not the official line of MoneySavingExpert.com.

    Hi All, we are aware of several companies using Martin's image to promote goods, services and push people to websites. This is totally a FALSE endorsement and neither MSE nor Martin endorses products or services at all.

    If you see Martin on ANY facebook post that isn't from MSE or Martin's own page it is a FAKE POST

    Please see his video below:
