Crypto Scam Impersonates Soccer Star

French Soccer Star Claims He Was Impersonated By Crypto Scam

French worldwide soccer striker Kylian Mbappé filed a complaint last week for the unapproved utilization of his name on a crypto scam, which is being investigated by local authorities.

As per the paper L’équipe, the soccer player, who plays for Paris Saint-Germain, is being impersonated in promoting efforts for the supposed scam that includes a digital money securing plan.

These promoting posts referred to bogus explanations by Mbappé, where he supposedly guaranteed that the equation offered by the system was extraordinary and that individuals could turn into a mogul in a few months.

The crypto scam article that started the entire complaint was titled “The latest KylianMbappé investment that put pressure on experts and scared big banks.”

“These pages are used to impersonate future victims, save your contact details, then an alleged vendor calls them to explain the procedure for investing, but there is never a product that is invested in,” said Anne-Sophie Coulbois, head of the Central Office for the Suppression of Financial Crime with the French Judicial Police.

It isn’t the first time that the French star has had his name soiled by crypto scams that utilize his name without authorization.

It was reported last April that Mbappé’s authentic Twitter account had been hacked with tweets where he urged his followers to make interests in crypto scams.

The Financial Markets Authority of France said that in 2018 they got almost 1,100 complaints about this sort of scams, which wound up taking 55.5 million euros.
