Scammer who swindles people through the sale of bitcoins exposed

Scammer who swindles people through the sale of bitcoins exposed

A young man who was recently scammed by people who were pretending to sell the online currency bitcoins, reached out to a popular Twitter account to help expose the people behind his unfortunate experience.

The bitcoin is an online currency (cryptocurrency) that has it's own value, and is also accepted as the legal tender in some countries and companies alike. In 2016, it's value was rated higher than the dollar.

The currency is mostly used for online transactions, they are stored in 'online wallets' and when lost, can never be traced or even replaced.

A young man identified as Joseph, was forced to learn this the hard way after encountering scammers when he tried to purchase some bitcoins. (Maybe he didn't see the Central Bank of Nigeria's warning concerning the dangers of using bitcoins)
