Martin Lewis, the founder of MoneySavingExpert.com, is still not satisfied with how Facebook is handling fake cryptocurrency ads that are exploiting his name. Being worth £125 mln, the British TV star is now demanding an apology from Facebook. On top of that, he wants the social network to come up with a more robust technological solution for ad checking.

He sued the US tech for giant defamation in April, claiming that it would take days or even weeks for them to delete the content reported by him. As of now, they are in talks to settle the case. However, if it goes to court and Lewis win, the British millionaire pledges to donate his financial compensation to charity.

Lewis also claims gullible investors who fell for these “get-rich-quick-schemes” suffer from suicidal thoughts after having their lives ruined.
