YouTube LIVE SCAMS - needs Foundation ATTN

Yes, I was recently taken for all my ADA. Yes, it was foolish. BUT, YouTube is allowing this.

Same thing happened to XRP and they have filed a class action lawsuit against YouTube.
Cardano needs to do the same thing in order to maintain it’s integrity. I spend an hour a day reporting all these channels to YouTube and nothing happens.

To help the cause, You can too:

  1. In YouTube, Search for ADA or Cardano.
  2. Filter by LIVE.
  3. Anything with the stolen Charles feeds are scammers. Hit the Report Flag as Fraud.

Im sorry for that @MarkB

We have a thread where you can report such streams/websites : Report a YouTube fraud/ give away scam video


Someone needs to do something about YouTube and the staking companies like sunshine and everstake. How are these platforms allowed to stake stollen cardano?

I just got caught up in a scam on YouTube as well. Completely my fault and down 5000 Ada. If it looks too good to be true, it is. Had a few drinks and got swindled.

No good. Wish something could be done to get your Ada back. There is obviously a big problem at the moment with a lot of people getting scammed.

There is now the Cardano Fraud Detection Bureau and an anti-scam task-force has been announced. It’s a promising start. The CF itself cannot freeze any asset, only centralized exchanges could do that and it has to be done with the help of law enforcement.


The cardano anti scam task force should be able to provide the right information to the right authorities to eventually bring these scammers down and quickly after a scam has scammed people. Also retrieve any scammed ADA

That’s the idea, however as it has been said, there is no way to «retrieve the Ada back» for them, transactions are irreversible by design, only a successful legal procedure will eventually allow you to do that. All that the CF can do is providing assistance, they’re not responsible for stolen Ada, as it wasn’t theirs in the first place.

I lost 2500ADA ON 5:00AM JST today…

If i have the transaction proof, is there a way to retrieve back my Ada?

No its not possible. As soon as the transaction has been confirmed by the network there is no chance to get them back.
