scammy fake spacex youtube channels.
« on: 06/18/2023 09:35 pm »
Anyone notice the fake scammy spacex channels on youtube? Some of them even have the spacex channel name. I thought I was watching the real launch coverage for several minuets. Then it flashed a qr code to buy bit coins.

Bit coins are a pox on humanity.

Iíve noticed them appearing in my feed every so often. If you mark them not interested often enough they tend to go away.

When a scammy SpaceX or related channel pops up on my feed I normally report it as a scam. On more than one occasion, I have even been able to mention on the report created that the video used in the scam was stolen from a particular content creator.

 Only humanity who wants money they didn't earn.
 I have little sympathy for victims of get rich schemes. How many people do you meet that even understand money as a medium of exchange for goods and services any more?

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

If it says SpaceX but it's pushing Bitcoin then it's obviously fake.

The real SpaceX channel only pushes Dogecoin!

Then it flashed a qr code to buy bit coins. It is important to be vigilant and careful, especially when it comes to financial transactions and personal information. I agree with you about Bitcoin - many scams are related to scamcurrencies. You can also click on the link and scammers will take over your online wallet - this is also dangerous. I know a trusted resource, everyone trustly recommends it, namely trustly casino, and I started studying it. For now Iím just reading about it and looking at reviews. What can I say - it is important to be aware and careful.

I have also come across similar fake channels on YouTube and it is really offensive. Unfortunately, in the online world there will always be those who seek to deceive and manipulate. This is inevitable, they make money from it.
