Pokemon cards and their collection can turn anyone into a millionaire overnight. However, there are a few important hurdles that the owner needs to jump before they can stand a chance of claiming the riches. Rare first edition Pokemon cards and unique variants of legendary Pokemon and popular characters can earn you massive returns on the market.
This is something the YouTuber Logan Paul understands very well, yet he still got scammed. Popular streamer xQc offered his reaction to the whole drama surrounding Logan’s purchase of 3.5M dollars worth of cards that turned out to be fake.

He stated that the boxes seemed wrong from the get-go and the way they were being handled screamed fake. He said,” GI. Joes. Okay, dude. Okay. This acting though, dude come on. Okay, dude?” He continued, “Can you complain too? this is not like 10K or 5K though, it is 2.5 mil, dude. If you make it claim whatever, you guys gonna get rolled.”
Does xQc believe everything that happened to Logan Paul?
The 26-year-old streamer, xQc, indeed believes that the older Paul brother got duped. However, suspicion definitely arises because of the reactions, and on some occasions, a lot of people agree, they didn’t seem natural at all.
That said, it is not exactly super unbelievable that a fraudulent box made its way and landed in the YouTuber’s hands. Pokemon trading cards have their own fair share of prestige, and scammers use this opportunity to make thousands of dollars at the expense of unwary collectors.
