Popular Indian YouTuber Ajey Nagar, also known as Carry Minati, who has 6.7 million subscribers, is the latest victim of the ongoing Bitcoin giveaway scam on YouTube.

It has been reported that the hack happened on Minati’s second YouTube channel “CarryisLive” where he streams himself playing video games with YouTubers and celebrities.  

However, two Bitcoin giveaway scam promotional videos were reportedly posted on the channel, as both videos displayed bitcoin addresses.

One of the videos also featured an image of SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk supposedly giving away Bitcoin. The scammers were promising to double the Bitcoin sent to them.

As per the report, Minati announced that his YouTube channel is back to normal.

Bitcoin giveaway scams made their way on YouTube, fake Bitcoin giveaways from channels claiming to belong to Elon Musk scammed users out of $150,000.

Also, recently, scammers attempted to use the “double your money” cons to target VeChain VET tokens holders.

Thus, YouTube’s legal team has argued that the platform is immune from liability for cryptocurrency scams perpetrated as part of its video content or descriptions.
