POKIMANE REVEALS HOW SHE FELL FOR $24K SCAM BY HER YOUTUBE MANAGER

WHAT HAPPENED?

Pokimane revealed to her Twitch fans she was once dealt a hefty $24,000 blow thanks to a “stupid scam” by her ex-YouTube manager.

The incident, which happened back in late 2019, saw Pokimane payout three months of wages to this “promising guy.”

Soon after he “joined the team,” however, her YouTube uploads slowed down, before stopping entirely.

He gave me like $200 worth of value, I ain’t joking. This was a relationship where it took me ages to realize that I was actually just getting played. He was so good at writing all these excuses and reasons.

When I found out, I was ruthless, on god, I went to him and demanded to know why we hadn’t uploaded any videos, and he sent me five paragraphs that told me he had been doing this and that.

Every now and then he’d tell me he was doing things, like a Hot Ones-type show. But really he was just making me think he was doing things, but he wasn’t. It came down to, dude, I’m giving you $8,000 a month, do the work!

Then, in the second month, he went MIA for a full week. He said a family member had been sick, and I just had to believe him. I couldn’t prove he was really lying.

She didn’t end up sacking him until she had spent a grand total of $24,000 for him to do “absolutely nothing,” however.
