Sunrise host David Koch left furious as he’s dragged into another online scam – after THAT erectile dysfunction cream hoax: ‘Beware!’

Sunrise host David ‘Kochie’ Koch has found himself at the centre of yet another online scam. 

The 66-year-old, who previously found himself the unwitting spokesperson for erectile dysfunction scams, was rightfully left fuming this week after he discovered yet another fraudulent ad using his name.  

Posting to Instagram on Sunday, Koch uploaded a screenshot of a fake online article that claimed to reveal how much money he ‘really earned’.

‘These scammers are getting out of control,’ the TV presenter wrote in the caption.  

‘My daughter’s friend in the UK was checking her weather app of all things… and up pops a scam ad. BEWARE. They are getting to plague proportions,’ he added, before tagging the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.  

It comes after Koch found himself at the centre of an online scam relating to Bitcoin investment in 2019.

The financial journalist alerted fans of the hoax with a lengthy post on Instagram, writing: ‘SCAM WARNING; ANY STORY OR ADVERTISEMENT CLAIMING THE KOCH’S RECOMMEND BITCOIN AS AN INVESTMENT IS A SCAM.’

‘It is driving us crazy the con artists using Libby and I as bait to lure people into investing in Bitcoin,’ Koch continued.

‘Facebook are doing their best to take them down but then they pop back up using different offshore servers,’ he added.

'These scammers are getting out of control. My daughter’s friend in the UK was checking her weather app of all things… and up pops a scam ad. BEWARE. They are getting to plague proportions,' Koch wrote in the post, tagging the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

In 2018, Koch was also forced to deny any association with fraudulent online adverts promoting erectile dysfunction treatment.

Warning his legions of fans at the time, Koch tweeted: ‘For those who might be tempted… be warned the erectile dysfunction advertisements doing the rounds online using my image are fake.’
