I guess some idiots actually believe this.

You mean him spending millions on pokemon cards? I briefly watched Mizkifh and some other twitch ppl and they do actually spend A TON of money on these cards but they can also make loads of it back so I dunno...

Holy shit if real 😳

I don’t like this guy, but I don’t wish this even on my worst enemy. Nothing I hate more than pure dishonest fraud.

Next up : Logan Paul hunts down the scammers and goes UFC on them on camera. I would pay for that content 🤣

He'll probably come out on top either way with that one guy likely to refund him and then all the video proceeds.

He got refunded by Shyne. Jacob (Cardkahuna) and Jameel (Meelypops) have lawyered up. So Shyne is $2.7M in shit. I guess Logan will send money his way from all this income, etc.

What I’m wondering is how did this slip through the original authenticity check by BBCE? Peoples thinking this is fake to begin with, BBCE (valided as the guys on video being legit) would not risk ruining their reputation over a viral stunt, cmon.

game shows give away millions of dollar prizes as part of the cost of producing the show.

this is basically that, people rejoicing about Logan Paul losing money but even if he lost that it wouldn't even matter he already created the draw/interest that you have even sites like kotaku writing about it.

It also provides an opportunity to have a boxing match against the scammer. That's big money.

I'd sign a petition to have G.I. Joe and his crew added to the next generation of Pokemon

It's money laundering.
