Several news reports of Mr. Anand Mahindra, a successful business man in India making millions by investing in cryptocurrency, have been doing rounds.
Anand Mahindra took to Twitter to dismiss all the reports of him investing in cryptocurrencies along with a few screenshots of news reports stating that he earns millions every day through crypto investments. Overruling the rumour, Mr. Mahindra tweeted, “This would be highly amusing if it wasn’t so unethical &, in fact, dangerous. Someone saw this online & alerted me. I need to make people aware that this is completely fabricated & fraudulent. Takes fake news to a new level. Ironically, I’ve not invested a single rupee in cryptos”.
This isn’t the first time fake stories on Mr. Anand Mahindra have been written. A publication quoted him earlier this year in September which he later dismissed and said, ““I’m flattered that some believe my statements are quotable and I have always believed in the power of social media to democratize information & share knowledge. But the downside is wrongly attributed quotes. I will do my best to call them out whenever possible.”
