Lebo laughs off fake news about Bit­coin for­tune

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - News - Kyle Zee­man

Lebo M has warned fans about a fake story cir­cu­lat­ing on­line claim­ing he had made mil­lions after nail­ing the Bit­coin game.

The ar­ti­cle‚ which was shared by Lebo (pic­tured) on so­cial me­dia this week claims that after he went “broke in 2017” he dis­cov­ered a Bit­coin trad­ing plat­form that saw him coin it.

It fur­ther claimed that he made the rev­e­la­tion on a pop­u­lar morn­ing show.

If it sounds too good to be true‚ that’s be­cause it is and The Lion King pro­ducer was quick to shut down the claims and la­bel them as fraud.

“Warn­ing! There is a fake news story about Lebo M and Bit­coin.

“I have no clue what this is about and have done no break­fast show of any sorts. It is fraud.”

He was en­cour­aged by his fol­low­ers to take ac­tion against the scam­mers.

The re­ports of Lebo M go­ing bank­rupt are not false though.

As he ex­plained to TshisaLIVE last year he filed for a US court chap­ter 11 or­der which pro­tected him against cred­i­tors for a limited time to al­low him to re­or­gan­ise his busi­ness in­ter­ests. He said he was not broke. –
