David & # 39; Kochie & # 39; Koch has become entangled in the online BitCoin investment scam that has robbed fans of thousands … after those erectile dysfunction cream hoax
He took social media last year to warn about an & # 39; erectile dysfunction cream & # 39; which, according to him, would be approved by him.
And Sunrise host David & # 39; Kochie & # 39; Koch is at the center of yet another online scam, this time with regard to BitCoin investments.
Taking into account Instagram on Wednesday, the financial journalist alarmed fans of the hoax with a long post, writing: & # 39; SCAM WARNING; CLAIMING ANY STORY OR AD OF THE KOCH'S RECOMMENDED BITCOIN AS AN INVESTMENT IS A SCAM. & # 39;
Sunrise host David & # 39; Kochie & # 39; Koch has used his influence to tell his Instagram followers about a Bitcoin scam that claims to be supported by the presenter and his wife
& # 39; We are crazy about the scammers using Libby and I as bait to lure people to invest in Bitcoin. Facebook does their best to get them out of the air, but then they pop up again with different offshore servers, & he continued.
The breakfast host ranted about how modern technology had connected us & # 39; like never before with scammers & # 39 ;.
& # 39; They are digital cockroaches … nothing can kill them. For the record, I endorse nothing more than my book Kochie & # 39; s 11 Step Money Plan, & # 39; he joked.
Angry: & # 39; We are crazy about the scammers using Libby and I as bait to trick people into investing in Bitcoin & # 39 ;, he wrote in an Instagram post
The pitfalls of society: the host of breakfast raged about how modern technology had connected us & # 39; like never before with scammers & # 39;
In September, he went to Twitter to defend himself against any association with fraudulent online advertisements that promote the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
David warned his legions of fans and wrote: & # 39; For those who might be tempted … be warned of erectile dysfunction. Ads that do the laps online with my image are fake. & # 39;
Former Today presenter Karl Stefanovic, 44, also had similar controversies last year when his image was used in a similar & # 39; erectile dysfunction & # 39; scam.

The scam masqueraded as an article from an entertainment website that erroneously claimed that Karl left Channel Nine to focus on developing a & # 39; new erectile dysfunction treatment after experiencing the condition & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Erectile Dysfunction from Karl Stefanovic has awe-inspiring experts and an industry that is terrified & & # 39 ;, said the fraudulent ad.
The federal government hit a wave of online shopping scams last year using fake celebrity statements from Karl and David, such as Carrie Bickmore, Jessica Rowe and Lisa Wilkinson.
Not only: the incident comes after Karl Stefanovic, 44, had a similar controversy when he was also the brand of a similar & # 39; erectile dysfunction & # 39; scam
Senator Mitch Fifield told The Sunday Telegraph that these fraudulent advertisements are & # 39; shameful & # 39; and & # 39; dodgy & # 39; were designed to trick customers.
& # 39; Online shopping scams such as those with fake celebrity statements are outrageous and unreliable plans designed to mislead real Australian consumers & # 39 ;, Fifield said.
Fifield also called on digital platforms such as Google and Facebook to take & # 39; more responsibility & # 39; by removing online advertising spam.
"Erectile Dysfunction Fix by Karl Stefanovic has experts in awe and an industry terrified," said the fraudulent ad
& # 39; The community also rightly expects digital platforms to take greater responsibility and take more decisive action against scams and misleading ads on their sites, "he added.
Meanwhile, a Google spokesperson said the platform has zero tolerance for ads that mislead or induce users to interact with them and have clear policies that prohibit these practices. When we find ads that violate our policies, we remove them. & # 39;
