The CarryisLive YouTube channel, with 6.81 million subscribers, has been stolen by Bitcoin fraudsters. The channel, which was taken back in a short time, is now in the hands of its original owner.
Bitcoin-based fraud cases have grown in the last few years. Bill Gates, one of the richest people in the world, hacked the Twitter accounts of Apple, one of the biggest companies in the world, as well as Elon Musk, attempted to make Bitcoin scams through these accounts.
This incident, one of the biggest cyberattacks on Twitter history, was beginning to be forgotten, and now Bitcoin fraud has erupted on YouTube. CarryisLive, the second YouTube channel of the popular YouTuber Ajey Nagar with 6.7 million subscribers, has become the new target of Bitcoin fraudsters.
The fraudsters who claimed to be Elon Musk previously promised to give twice the amount of Bitcoin they sent to those who wanted to make easy money. The last target of this fraud, called Bitcoin Giveaway Scam, was Ajey Nagar, and the CarryisLive YouTube channel was stolen for Bitcoin Giveaway Scam.
Contacting YouTube with the realization of the situation, Ajey Nagar stated that he managed to take back his channel with the tweet he shared shortly afterward, he did not know who or why the event was done and thanked YouTube for his quick return.
The fact that bitcoin has been on a serious uptrend in recent weeks has strengthened the hand of Bitcoin fraudsters. Fraudsters promising to double their money by imitating famous names or taking over their accounts, so they collect hundreds of thousands of dollars and of course disappear.
