Adam “Adam22” Grandmaison is an internet celebrity, known for his “No Jumper” podcast and interviews with top rappers in the music industry – but his podcast has become so famous that it’s attracting major scammers.

Having interviewed music industry giants like 6IX9INE and Aaron Carter to YouTubers like Tana Mongeau and FaZe Banks, Adam22’s podcast is an enviable platform – so much so that scam artists are willing to swindle victims out of thousands for a chance at appearing on the show.

Grandmaison revealed this fact in a Tweet on October 16, where he claimed that an unidentified young man had been convinced into buying plane tickets for a potential spot on the podcast.

“The scammers have taken **** to a whole new level,” Adam wrote, posting a screenshot of an iMessage group. “They convinced this poor kid to fly out to LA for an interview.”

The screenshot in question shows Adam’s publicist claiming that a young man had confirmed an interview for the podcast and was flying out to Los Angeles, with another individual in the chat answering that “Tony has no idea what that’s about. He hasn’t scheduled anything.”

That’s not the end of the madness, either: Adam later revealed that the scam was “so much worse than it sounded at first,” claiming that the scammers had swindled their victim out of “thousands” with a “whole fake promo itinerary.”

Despite the youngster’s plight, Adam refuses to interview him, claiming that he doesn’t want to encourage other hopefuls to buy into future scams – no matter how elaborate they might be.

While Adam has yet to reveal exactly what these materials are for help in avoiding further scams, fans are hoping that he’ll at least give the victim a chance, with the kerfuffle likely making for an interesting interview topic.

With the internet star being a target for drama – see his altercation with Aaron Carter, an armed burglar breaking into his studio, and his cat thief – this scam marks just the latest in a slew of wild occurrences surrounding Grandmaison’s podcast success.

Meet the TikToker going viral for saying “Charli D’Amelio” 100,000 times

A TikToker has taken over the internet for saying the name of the platform’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio 100,000 times in a row — and he’s not the first one to lay claim to fame in this manner.

TikTok star Devin Caherly has caught the eye of social media users around the globe after taking on a jaw-dropping challenge, which he announced in a video on November 29.

Claiming that he would say the name of Charli D’Amelio — the site’s most popular creator with over 101 million followers — 100,00 times, his quest soon became a viral sensation, with his original announcement video garnering over 309,000 likes at the time of writing.

Caherly kept track of his project by using an online counter, which he would press each time he said D’Amelio’s name. However, he didn’t ask fans to just take his word for it; he even live-streamed the entire ordeal, but it didn’t turn out as planned.

Unfortunately for Caherly, as soon as he hit the 999,991 mark, his counter suddenly reset, leaving him completely devastated (although we have to admit, his failure made for a pretty funny TikTok).

@devincaherlyI spent 18 hours straight saying @charlidamelio and right before I hit 100,000 this happens 🤦🏻‍♂️♬ original sound – Devin Caherly

This isn’t his first experiment of this nature, either; Caherly has also said Charli D’Amelio’s name for every ten likes he’s gotten, as well as every ten comments within a 24-hour period.

Caherly’s endeavors ring similar to those of massively popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson, who has also said the names of social media stars like ‘PewDiePie’ and Logan Paul 100,000 times in the past.

That’s not the only way in which Caherly is similar to Mr Beast; he’s also given out quite a bit of cash and gift cards for his 2.7 million fans — although we can’t say it’s the same as Mr Beast opening a free bank or tipping waitresses in legitimate gold bars.

Either way, it seems that Caherly has opened up quite a career for himself, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for this young creative.
