Ben is host of the BTC Sessions YouTube channel. He appears to be knowledgeable about Bitcoin, so he was the wrong guy to try to cheat, as this scammer learned. The scammer, going by the name of Susan Williams, told Ben via instant message that he could double his money in 24 hours if he sent her bitcoins to invest in a bitcoin mining operation. Ben pretended to be interested but told her that he would send her a bitcoin only if she first sent him $50 worth of bitcoin as a show of good faith.
