Though this is one of the things that strive to give cryptocurrency a bad name and cause unnecessary insecurity and panic, Newbie`s are encouraged to always do good research but should never disclose your backup phrase/ password or anything at all that has any connection with your bitcoin wallet apart from your bitcoin address.
Whilst Checking the bitcoin address on blockchain, it is seen that the address has received more than 65 bitcoin, apparently from other users who fell victim to the video scam.
We also tried to check up on the video on youtube and we found out that the user closed his Youtube account immediately after hunting his preys.
