Censor’s $14,000 scam debacle gets a disheartening update

Ex Call of Duty pro Doug ‘Censor’ Martin has provided an update to his case surrounding a scam that allegedly cost him over $14,000.

While Censor took the scammer to court and won his case, it appears that the requested funds may not fall back into his pockets any time soon.

According to Censor, the authorities could not retrieve the funds due to an ‘unsuccessful demand for payment,’ and failed in finding property on which they could levy the value in question, as well.

Censor explained that while he might not be getting paid in a cash amount, the money may be taken out of the value of the scammer’s home and sent to him as a check – should they ever decide to sell their property.

“It’s so hard,” he said of the situation. “You just gotta be careful at the end of the day.”

The scam in question occurred in May of 2018, when a pipe broke in Censor’s home that rendered his plumbing unusable until it could be fixed. 

A contractor had bid the job at $6,800, but allegedly encountered an additional problem that raised the total cost of the fix to over $14,000.

According to Censor, the contractor had even dug a massive hole in his front yard without making efforts to fix the damaged pipe. He made an effort to call the contractor in question to no avail, which prompted him to sue.


TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Hamlinz was once one of the most popular streamers alongside Shroud and Ninja.

Hamlinz is back and feeling like his old self again

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
