A bit of a different video this time around, hoping to provide some transparency for how many YouTube channels out there fall for sponsorship deals which lead to them being stolen. It’s unfortunately easier to fall for than you’d expect! I cover a fake NordVPN sponsorship email I received, how I almost fell for it, how I was able to verify it was fake, and offer some advice over what to look for to hopefully help some others remain vigilant.
Shoutout and Thank You to Pathogen-David!
