Former Health Minister Dwayne Seymour, Cayman Compass, targeted in latest Bitcoin Scam.
(RCN) Former Health Minister Dwayne Seymour is the latest victim of a bitcoin internet scam. The goal of the bitcoin scam is finding vulnerable people, who have little to no understanding on how to avoid internet scams.
The scam above is pretending to be a news article, from the Cayman Compass (spelled Compas on the scam-site) and includes a fake interview from the now-defunct Cayman 27.
Former Minister Seymour is quoted in the fake story, supporting bitcoin, and how bitcoin has the ” government and big banks terrified.”
This is not the first time a Caymanian politician has been used in a fake scam story. Education Minister Julianna O’Connor Connolly was named in a similar scam last year, which CMR first reported.
The article has a number of spelling mistakes, which is one of the key signs of a scam. Those who wish to educate themselves in internet scams should click here.
Real Cayman News alerted Dwayne Seymour and The Cayman Compass about these scams.
