12- Shady streamer ‘DarkSydePhil’ solicits $1K+ for receiving false copyright strikes (Source: NeoGAF user Plumpbiscuit)

I say shady because this particular streamer, DarkSydePhil (DSP), has been known to say and do shady shit in the past, involving disclosing confidential medical information about his-then fiance to the internet. If you know who DSP, you might be facepalming right now, or looking in intrigue. Either way, these past few days he has in my opinion committed himself to conning/scamming his fans to beg for money for financial gain through a legal situation that I’m about to roughly breakdown.

After this flurry of attention, the publisher stepped in to reveal all.
