Warren Buffet, one of the most well-known names in the financial market, has issued a warning against a “cryptocurrency brokerage” that is using his name and that of his company to, most likely scamming cryptocurrency investors.
“Earlier this afternoon, we became aware that there is an entity using the name Berkshire Hathaway with a web address of berkshirehathawaytx.com. The entity has no affiliation with Berkshire Hathaway Inc. or its chairman and CEO, Warren E. Buffett”, the company in a statement.
According to the purported broker’s website, berkshireHathawaytx.com was created on
The website states that “Berkshire Hathaway is a Texas-based company created to give our investors the opportunity to earn completely passive income.”
