H3h3’s original video on the topic:
original story came from this YouTuber honor the call:
Youtubers have been caught defrauding their viewers to earn money via cs:go gambling websites that they actually own.
These counter strike global offensive websites allow you to gamble and win thousands of dollars by gambling away your skins to earn skins that are worth real life money and cash. You can sell skins for steam wallet funds and turn those steam wallet funds into actual money.
The problem is that several youtubers and streamers caught promoting counter strike gambling websites turned out to not only OWN those sites, but not disclose that fact. This most likely constitutes fraud in the USA and other countries as well.
