    Bitcoin Loophole, recommended?

    Bitcoin Loophole, recommended? 12th Jun 18 at 6:18 PM
    I'm not sure this is in the right thread, so please move if you think not.

    Hi, I saw this site below and I was wondering whether to invest in Bitcoin Loophole as a result - maybe naively? Doing a search on moneysavingexpert before-hand hasn't returned any results, besides on 'Bitcoin', as not recommended/a scam? However I was wondering thoughts on Bitcoin Loophole, invested in by a dragon from Dragons Den, whether that is different.

    I wanted to point out that I didn't originally click on this site, the page was there because it came up after I was on another site and having closed that site, revealed it. I wonder if that's a 'bad' sign or simply that some genuine sites do that? Plus what a long URL!

    So I was going to put the link below but I've not been allowed to do so as a new user (this was the point of me registering). Not good, how can I show you the site.?

    It's a scam , probably using Deborah Needham pictures

    Same as the scams using Alan sugars and Martin's pictures

    You can put a broken link in, then someone can put it up for you.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    Oh really! Wow I was so close to being sucked in after 2 minutes. Thank God for the thought process of "moneysavingexpert" lifesaver. Thanks Browntoa for letting me know! Yes it did have photos from the program and was written like a magazine article with quotes from the show etc. But it is real right, the company "Bitcoin Loophole" and being on the program?

    Yes ok ColdIron who is slightly cold. I may point out that when I went to register I forgot I was already registered as it said my email was already registered, and didn't remember posting before. So whilst you are correct, I also had in my mind initially I was signing up to post this.

    Right, and the community doesn't really want hundreds of scam artists and spammers signing up 'just to post a link' because then we get lots of spam and scams from those people rather than quality discussion.

    The site doesn't want to make exceptions for people who claim they are one of the good guys, otherwise every spammer would say to please give them link privileges because they are a good guy and just want to post this one link and ask a question "about this great-sounding site I just found". The trouble with spam and scams is that any publicity is good publicity for them - even if the discussion is all about it being a scam, the site itself might get higher on Google search results just through being a popular thing to talk about.

    It's been doing the rounds. I think the UK dragons den scam version was quite late to be built.
    If it's the one I think it is and you've ever watched the program you would realise they would never do that sort of thing - and if they did you would have heard about it.
