Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian is a Famous American media personality. Kim Kardashian is such an all-rounder superwoman as she is a model, actress, stylist, and businesswoman at the same time. She got fame after doing sex tape in 2002. 

Kim Kardashian tweeted last at 06:05 p.m,

“Feeling nice! All BTC sent to my will be sent back doubled, enjoy.” 

That has been deleted then.

According to The Washington Post

After this, the same pirated tweet of Kim Kardashian has been noticed on the profile of other famous personalities like Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Kanye West, and Bill gates also on the same day continuously. This thing is spreading all around just because of one fake promise of giving bitcoin Currency to those people who forward cryptocurrency to a specific bitcoin address, all this report according to The Washington Post.

Now that deleted post has been seen on the profile of other celebrities.

On Elon Musk Profile

“Feeling grateful, doubling all payments sent to my BTC address! You send $1,000, I send Back $2,000! Only doing this for the next 30 minutes.”
