England boss Gareth Southgate is looking into taking legal action after his name was used to promote a cryptocurrency scam.
A mass email says that Southgate has accrued substantial wealth using a crypto trading platform.
It even says the 51-year-old went on American TV host Ellen DeGeneres' show to talk about his success.
A spokesman for Southgate said: "The details about Mr Southgate in this story are completely untrue.
"His name has been used without permission. As such, his management team are taking legal advice on the matter."
