Martin Lewis yells and fights back tears as This Morning viewers fall victim to 'lying, scamming thieves'

MONEY Saving Expert Martin Lewis got emotional as he yelled about "lying, scamming thieves" stealing money by using his FACE.

The cash guru, 49, lost his temper during a phone-in with This Morning viewers falling victim to "sophisticated" scammers.

Reading out a question from viewer Sarah about Bitcoin purchases, host Holly Willoughby said: "I've seen Martin Lewis championing Bitcoin purchases, but my concern is…"

Martin cut in shouting "no, no, no", with Holly telling him: "Let me just read it and then you can clarify."

She continued: "These are Bitcoin purchases asking for £2,000 to be transferred over and then be transferred back. Can you tell me if trhis is genuine?"

Martin started shouting: "It's a scam, it's a scam, it's absolutely a scam. I do not do any adverts.

"Look, Bitcoin is a speculative investment and I don't do speculative investments.

"That's why I don't talk about. I'm not going to go into it, good or bad, there's a lot of debate around there. Some people love it, some people say it's destabilising.

"I certainly wouldn't put more money than you can afford to lose in it but it may very well get you a lot of money if it goes right.

"But none of this is about Bitcoin. The stuff on social media and the stuff you're emailed with my face on it – and often yours too Holly – telling you about some life-changing incredible that has revolutionised my life is actually lying, scamming thieves trying to steal your money.

"I do not appear in adverts. I do not try and pump investments. If you see those – even if there's a picture of me with quotes linking to what looks like a newspaper site – it's not real."

Martin then went on to reveal a heartbreaking story of someone conned out of money cause of a similar scam.
