Celebrity endorsed Bitcoin scams

We’ve all seen them, those ads with Dick Smith, Andrew Forrest, Waleed Aly, etc mentioning something about making zillions of dollars in next to no time, solving your retirement issues, house issues, you name it.
Pretty obvious it’s a scam to most of us, but not enough.
Thousands of people in Australia have been scammed and lost even their life savings in certain cases.
(Golden Rule no.1: NEVER invest your life savings in ANYTHING , even the bank. )

The Guardian has run an investigation in to the scheme, (or one of the schemes as far as we know) to see what the story is and who might be behind it.
