Anand Mahindra said that he has not invested a "single rupee" in cryptocurrencies

New Delhi
Indian business tycoon Anand Mahindra said that he has not invested a "single rupee" in cryptocurrencies.
The billionaire shared some screen grabs which claimed that he has made tons of money using a cryptocurrency investment platform.
The screenshots of the report stated that he made money using a crypto coins auto-trading programme Bitcoin Era.
The businessman said such news take the "fake news" to a whole next level. "Someone saw this online and alerted me. I need to make people aware that this is completely fabricated & fraudulent. Takes fake news to a new level. Ironically, I have not invested a single rupee in cryptos," he said.
The fake report went on to say that Anand Mahindra, during a TV show, said a "wealth loophole" could transform anyone into a "millionaire" in 3-4 months.
Earlier, in September Mahindra came across a post that was wrongly attributed to him. Sharing that quote, the Mahindra group chairman said that the quote is not actually his.
