    It gets worse than this. One of the major Polish science YouTubers had his account compromised via API keys stolen by a malicious browser extension - 2FA did nothing to secure him. As a result of reports it was taken down for a few days.

      Crypto scams have always existed...usually by YouTube influencers, being promised free crypto for promoting and "vetting" the nonsense.
