    Sir, thank you for your presence and willingness to look out for your fans and just people in general! I know you mentioned drums for obvious reasons, but make sure people know it covers basically anything that makes it seem like a legit thing because it generally seems to be related to whatever channel it's on. You are awesome, have a great day and rock on my good man! 😁

  • HeyLook ItsABirdItsAPlaneNoItsAReallyLongUsername

    To be clear to everyone/Samus, this is NOT a Samus specific issue, it happens to every big creator with a decent following on UA-cam. UA-cam has failed it's community once again to just help fix this issue, fuck UA-cam.

  • SuicidalGrind
    SuicidalGrind 10 місяців тому +24

    As much as it baffles me that people don't think twice to maybe look things up like, surely Samus would LINK THE PROFILE somewhere if it was one of his? This is literally how thousands of people fall for scams all the time, not using common sense when checking someone's profile, getting sent a sketchy link that you definitely should not click if you don't absolutely know who it is from.
    Good on ya for making it clear that there is a thing like this going on though, definitely a good idea to spread the message because it seems that somehow people still do fall for very obvious scams.

    Damn that's crazy man. I always make sure to claim my free drum set, it's actually how I get all of my gear. When they ask for money i just remind them the ad said free and they usually reply " oh but ofcourse" and I get my drum set in a few days.

    This scam is EVERYWHERE on TouTube right now and it's crazy that UA-cam doesn't give a single shit about it. They've known about it for years and it's only in the past few months gotten to the point that creators actually need to step in and do what you're doing.

  • acgm046
    acgm046 10 місяців тому +2

    I think I got one of those messages once. It's so blatantly obvious that it's a scam, but it's extremely annoying and shameless, and it pains me that someone could potentially fall for it.
    Wish UA-cam fixed that, but it seems to be a common issue when channels have a considerable amount of subscribers. But yeah, hope those bots/scammers just f*CK off, dude.

    (Guy 2) "Oh yurr, I'm glad he addressed this issue."

    It baffles me that people put so much effort into scamming folks.

These days, if you build a better mousetrap, somebody builds a better rat.

    Hey, if anyone lives in Arkansas and wants a partial free drum set, hit me up I am moving. This video gave me this idea. I can't play anymore because of medical issues.
    I sold the cymbals and pedals, but I still got a curved pearl drum rack and it's a 10 piece. I know, it's a weird video to post this on I really want it gone. Only catch is you have to take it all.
