OMAHA, Neb.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A; BRK.B) —
It has come to Berkshire’s attention that there is an article on-line concerning Warren Buffett and BREXIT with respect to a conversation that Mr. Buffett allegedly had with Anderson Cooper. The article is headlined as follows – “Warren Buffett Warns “BREXIT” Chaos is going to cost Millions of Americans Jobs.” For the record, Mr. Buffett has not spoken with Anderson Cooper for about five years and never about BREXIT.
The article among other fraudulent claims states that Mr. Buffett spoke with Mr. Cooper and indicated that Mr. Buffett was recommending something called “The Global Cash Code.” Allegedly, per the on-line article, Mr. Buffett indicated that Sandra Barnes, the party who allegedly created “The Global Cash Code,” has been teaching people how to successfully use “The Global Cash Code.” Prior to learning of this fraudulent article, Mr. Buffett has never spoken with or even heard of Sandra Barnes.
