Tesla CEO Elon Musk distanced himself from yet another fabricated video promoting a cryptocurrency scam.

Originally shared on Twitter, the video in question was a deepfake of Musk purportedly promoting a cryptocurrency platform boasting 30% returns on crypto deposits. Scammers made use of original footage from a TED Talk featuring Musk and curator Chris Anderson at a TED conference in Vancouver in April this year.

The tweet and video caught the attention of Musk, himself, who has been increasingly active since his move to acquire the social media platform for an estimated $44 billion.
