BBC Cancels Documentary About Alleged Millionaire Crypto Trader
The famous UK broadcaster BBC has decided to pull off a documentary and an article about a self-proclaimed millionaire crypto trader following scam accusations.
According to The Daily Mail, Hanad Hassan, a 20-years old Birmingham resident, turned his GBP 37 into GBP 6 million worth in cryptocurrencies after running a successful career as a trader in a single year.
The documentary “We Are England: Birmingham’s Self-Made Crypto-Millionaire” talked about Hassan dedicating his life to charity projects while at the same time having a luxurious life. In addition, Hassan claimed to have set up charity-focused crypto, which, in fact, was shut down suddenly in October last year.
Details About “Orfano”
The article is no longer active on the BBC website, which was also promoting the documentary that talked about the life of Hassan, who had earned an alleged net worth of GBP 5.9 million. He was reportedly born in Somalia.
The bogus crypto set up by Hassan was dubbed Orfano, and it was launched in April. The idea behind the crypto was to allocate three percent of the money invested into the scheme to charity projects. In fact, Orfano got endorsements from celebrities like Akon and Amir Khan.
But things suddenly changed as well. “We “all lost our f****** money because of your scam,” commented one alleged investor in social media in the wake of the documentary. But, of course, it was not the only comment crossing the wires calling Orfano a scam.
Website Remains Operative
As of press time, Orfano’s website remains operative, although its Twitter account has been inactive since October when the scheme promoted the token’s presale.
A Twitter account claiming to be Hassan reacted to the scam’s claims:
“No, I myself didn’t make any money out of it… the relaunch was to try and bring some hype back to the charity and be able to donate more, the holders still had the investments and then sold their investment as liquidity was still there.”
