They took actual footage of Elon Musk speaking at a conference, and changed the voice settings. So what people see is Elon Musk speaking about his new trading software, but in reality it’s a voice over. But that’s just a part of a the problem. The real issue has to do with the fact that fake news websites are soliciting innocent victims to join this fraudulent software, and this alarming trend will not stop any time soon.

But until then it’s the Wild West so do you research and hold on to your wallets because online scams like Quantum AI Elon Musk are getting to be more frequent and a lot more sophisticated.
