It's a phishing attempt. There's been a banner about it up for a while, but it disappeared recently.

They are aware though.

The admin team here cannot help with this. This is something to be dealt with by the people who run the channel as they can report it to YouTube to get it deleted.

very much a SCAM, there are dozens of FAKE LTT youtube pages, for a while they spammed the shit out of video uploads on the legit channel.

Yeaaaaaaaaaaah, this has "scam" written all over it.

 

  1. Impersonating popular YouTube channel
  2. Bad grammar
  3. Using an expensive, but desirable item (iPhone X) to rope people into responding
  4. Requires a (most likely data-mining) survey to "qualify" for the "prize"

Officially LTT's 'coolest' member (yes, that's a pun)

The w is pronounced like v, if you're wondering!

Please quote me so I can see that you replied.

It's easy for someone to change the name and thumbnail of a channel, do you have a unique link to the imposter's profile?

i wonder what's the hit-miss ratio on LTT's viewerbase ._. (like for every person who can tell the scam apart from the actual channel, how many others completely fall for it without knowing or telling someone else)
