Youtuber (or shoetuber) Scoop208 recently fell under fire after a what turned out to be a massive scam storm. Scoop208 is sponsored by Detroitkicks.com and is also a supporter of Sneakerluv.com – both of which have had multiple complaints against them from user who claimed to have been scammed. Scoop208 defended Detroitkicks (who’s yelp reviews tell a different story) claiming that the retailer was “legit” and had only been overwhelmed by orders and could not fulfill them.
On the other hand, Brody trump – who owns sneakerluv.com, and is an admin of the Scoop208 sneaker group had also been running a pre-order/add to cart/bot scam of his own, and Scoop208 defended him, banning users from his group who called Trump out and even going as far as promoting Sneakerluv.com and Brody Trump on his youtube page which has well over 300k subscribers.
Just a few days ago Scoop208 decided to make a video acknowledging the scammers, but also saying he had “let his guard down” and “wasn’t on top of it”. Scoop goes on to say how he plans on paying people back out of his personal pocket and doing right by anyone who was caught up in any scam.
