New YouTube Scam? I almost fell for it!

Last Update: June 18, 2019

I got a following email today.

I was half asleep when I checked my phone + email and thought like, "Oh MAN! What have I done wrong??"


First, I was going to answer it right away but I was almost asleep so I thought I'll answer later when I'm on my computer.

When I was about to reply to that email, I was like, "Hmmm... Why do they ask me for such details?"

Then I checked the email where it's coming from.

See the screenshot below:


It's from "yt.spam.control@mail.ru"

Doesn't sound very legit, right?

Just to be on the sure side, I've sent an email to the official YouTube creator support to confirm that it's not from them.

Would be a disaster to lose a YouTube channel with +400 videos that's generating a significant passive income consistently...

Again a good reminder for you and me:

Always be careful in this exciting world of the Internet!

Cheers
