Evidence to support this is that there was a livestream for over 7 hours of "coinbase" (most likely not them, just scammers) trying to get people to "invest". I reported the video because it was obviously a scam and the channel was hijacked. The logo of the channel was changed to a blue C and the banner of the page was changed to a blue "CoinBase Pro English". As a result of the reports and obvious scam, YouTube shut the channel down. I reported the scam roughly 48 hours ago and when I checked the next day 24 hours ago the channel was down.

Thank God for that. Just spent 5 minutes looking for it under subscriptions before searching it (would've made more sense to do it the other way round but it's late) thought I was literally just being a moron and missing it. Hope it's back up soon

User - I wasn't questioning whether TopTenz had been hijacked - I was questioning the statement that TopTenz were deliberately trying to scam people.

If it is not your account it is none of your business and that is YTs stance. This is down to you not knowing the situation after all you do not know if they passed their channel onto someone else, and account security and privacy, imagine the fecal storm that would happen if random strangers could get your accounts messed with by saying you were hacked/compromised. Only the channel owner can raise the matter of their channel being hacked/compromised.

You need to get in touch with the original owner of the channel and let them know this and advise them to post on here. If they do then the product experts that specialise in helping people in this situation will step in and help them regain their channel if it is possible to o so.
