▲ ▼ Removing YouTube scam comments
If you use YouTube, It's not easy to miss a scammer in the comments in the videos of channels with high subscriber count.
The typical scam is to masquerade as the channel owner and enticing the unsuspecting users to engage with them for a prize to siphon money or steal their identity.
Several YouTubers have resorted to pin a comment on their videos mentioning about the scam and some have even gone to the lengths of engaging with the scammers themselves to educate their audience.
Given the scale of the scam and risk of legal issues/reputation loss to the YouTuber there seems to be a need-gap to address the YouTube comments scam as YouTube seems have waved their hands off this.
