OMG! Am I a Scammer?

The fight my road to financial freedom


I Nearly Fell Out of my Chair

I was reading my emails a few days ago, when I opened up one from YouTube.

It stated that I had a strike on my account for breach of their guidelines on one of my videos.

It then went on to say that any more breaches would result in my account being suspended.

To say I was stunned was an understatement. But then I opened up another email from them saying my account was terminated due to continuing breaches of scams, spam and deceptive conduct!


Am I a Scammer!

For a minute my head was spinning with qScreen Shot 2014-08-02 at 5.36.09 pmuestions.

“What have I done?”

“How could I have caused this?”

“Is this a mistake?”

“Am I a scammer!??”

I was going crazy!

Luckily though my self-development work I have been doing on my mindset kicked in and I stopped myself.

Of course I am not a scammer!!

Now The Fight!

Obviously this has been a mistake or somehow I have unknowingly breached some silly guideline.

I also had to verify my google account about ten minutes earlier because their was suspicious activity on my account.

So maybe I have even been hacked!!

But I know in my heart that I have certainly done nothing wrong and my intentions are pure.

My goal is simply to help as many people as I can through my experiences and perspective.

So now the fight is on to clear my name and get my YouTube account back!

In the meantime I have uploaded my videos to Vimeo so I can continue to get them out to my loyal subscribers.

This could easily have been devastating.

But I now have the motto of turning every problem into a goal to be achieved and I have the attitude of NEVER GIVING UP!

After conducting further research I have discovered that apparently this is quite common for YouTube to do so without explanation.

After contacting them several times they have not responded with the actual reason.

But I will continue to fight on and keep creating content that I believe will be of benefit!The fight my road to financial freedom

  1. You are not a scammer, John! Thanks for bringing this to people’s attention so they will know not to fret when they experience something similar.


    • Thanks for your support Ade!

      Yes the more I have looked into it, the more common this seems to be!

      It is just unfortunate that I can not get a reply from YouTube to find out the actual cause so if it is something I have done I can rectify the mistake!!

  2. When I first read your title, I had to continue reading. It’s really strange how real scams are always on YouTube. Keep up the fight and I wish you the best.

  3. Love your captivating start. 🙂 You scammer you , y ou scammed me into thinking your were a scammer.. HA! :D. Thanks for this, i coudn’t agree more. Wealthy Affiliate helped me in this battle a lot… 🙂

  4. That completely sucks, John.

    The thing that really annoys me is it’s always the “genuine” people like you who always get a slap on the wrist, while the real scam artists get away with their antics.

    Oh well! There is always a solution to every problem and I think problems are there to challenge us 😉

    Fight on and show them who’s boss!


  5. Fight on, John! And great job “catching yourself” … personal development pays off in so many ways, and you’re obviously applying what you’ve been learning.

    Yes, this is (unfortunately) very common. You may have a few nasty competitors who know “the game” at YT and have decided to target you. Sadly it is far too easy for a few bad apples to do things like this to good, honest people who post quality content at the Tube.

    Just keep doing the right thing … karma is a beautiful thing.


    • Thanks for your support Scott!

      Yes I am determined to keep fighting and producing quality content that I believe is of value!
