Some of the world’s richest and most powerful people have been targeted by an online hacking scam.

Elon Musk, and Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden were all hit with a similar apparent breach of security.

All of their accounts posted messages urging people to send Bitcoins – a kind of cryptocurrency – to the same address.

The address linked to the scam appears to have received more than 11.3 BTC, or roughly £82,800 so far according to Coinbase, a cryptocurrency specialist website.

Microsoft founder Bill Gate’s account posted: “Everyone is asking me to give back, and now is the time.

“I am doubling all payments sent to my BTC address for the next 30 minutes. You send $1,000, I you send you back $2,000.”
