Victims of a sophisticated deep fake scam are warning others not to believe what they see or hear, as scammers use artificial intelligence to swindle thousands from innocent Australians.

Deep fake scams are using the faces and voices of the nation’s biggest names to give credibility to investment scams appearing on social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook.

Mining magnates Gina Rinehart and Andrew ‘Twiggy’ Forrest, entrepreneur Dick Smith and A Current Affair‘s own Ally Langdon have all had their faces and voices artificially altered to spruik the fake business scams.

The scam videos promise to turn a small investment into big bucks with online trading, leaving Aussies like Paula and Ron to pay the price.

“I was scrolling through my granddaughter’s school Facebook page and this ad came up with Ally Langdon,” Paula said.

“It’s horrible, it’s the worst feeling, you don’t talk to your friends about it because you’re embarrassed.”

Ron lost $220,000 to the deep fake scam.
