"Consumer champion" Martin Lewis has provoked storms of protest over the latest financial advice to appear on his popular website.
Many regular visitors spoke of their shock and dismay after reading his latest article which advised people to set up fake charities schemes as a great way to fund the purchase of luxury goods.
Lewis suggested that “donations for troops” were a very lucrative market right now but also advised would-be scammers to “keep an eye on the news for any topical disasters that could be mined for quick and easy financial gain”.
This incident is the latest in a long line of events, which has seen the public fall out of love with the “poster boy for penny-pinching” with the public now unimpressed by the depths he will plummet to save a few pence.
Other recent controversial suggestions of his have included advising people to save money by reading the Big Issue online and a detailed investigation on how little food an elderly relative can survive on, which produced fatal results for all 93 residents of the Martin Lewis Retirement Home.
Lewis is however, unrepentant, insisting that “the satisfaction gained by all those cutting costs justifies the huge amounts of human lives being sacrificed.”
