Justin Sun has made it clear that he has only invited Charlie Lee of Litecoin, Changpeng Zhao of Binance, and Livio Wang of Huobi for the eBay powered Power of One Lunch with Warren Buffett. He says anyone apart from these claiming to be invited are fake, and has urged the community to report such people.
As of now we’ve only invited @SatoshiLite of Litecoin, @Binance and @HuobiGlobal to the @WarrenBuffett lunch. Please report any suspicious parties that claim to be invited to avoid any financial loss.

Sun paid a whopping $4.57 million via a charity auction bid, to get a chance to have the famous Power of One Lunch with the master investor and Berkshire Hathaway Chief Warren Buffett. The bid money will be donated to Glide Foundation, an initiative to support the underprivileged.
Buffett has been a long time critic of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, comparing the apex cryptocurrency to the button of his suit, and even terming it as ‘rat poison squared’. Sun supposedly wants to convince Buffett about cryptocurrencies, and if he succeeds, it could do wonders for the industry. To accomplish the task, Sun has invited industry leaders for lunch, which will happen at Quince Restaurant, San Francisco, CA.
However, a few bounty hunters seem to be taking this opportunity to gain cheap publicity, by falsely claiming to be invitees of the event. This could be quite hazardous, as the scammers can use this cheap trick to dupe unaware investors. For instance, they ask money to raise particular issues, or take them to the event, or something like that. Though believing this may sound stupid if you’ve been around for long enough, there are enough newcomers who fall for Ponzi Schemes like these.
Sun making this clarity is a great move to create awareness, and might save a few bucks of novice investors.
