This story is about "Jim Browning" (a psuedonum) who makes videos about tech support scams and exposes them.
Example - Jim contributed to a story on the BBC - Criminals on CCTV: Scammers caught red-handed
A post Jim shared on Reddit about his channel:
" If you're on the ball, you'll have noticed that my YouTube channel has been deleted:
It's the result of a scam .... Yes I fell for it.
It only goes to prove that if you get the circumstances just right, ANYONE can fall for a scam.
I am hoping that YouTube Support can recover the situation by 29th July and I can get the channel back, but they've not promised anything as yet. I just hope it is recoverable.
I will make a video on how all of this went down, but suffice to say, it was pretty convincing until the very end. I hope to post a positive update soon."
I thought this was worth sharing as someone who literally makes his living fighting against scammers apparently fell for a scam.
