Full video of him donating live here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zf5sBvfaI-Q

18 year old dude named "iNexus_Ninja". He was donating in chunks of 1k to 2k, and sometimes upwards of 5k a pop. There were multiple twitch streamers, and the total payout was ~$50k across all of them.

They actually got to keep the money in the end apparently. Paypal denied his request for a refund.

Donate money to me if old.

People worried about this kid:

His Twitter hints that he has very well off parents (his "first" birthday gift of the day was a $200 workout bench), and he's poking fun at his $1010/month payments for this little stunt. He talks about blowing $4000 like it's nothing.

So, yeah.

Not that I'd ever do this, but if I donated that amount of money as a prank and couldn't get it back, I'd freak out pretty badly.
Haha yeah 50K is more than a lot of people make in a year and this kid might not even have a steady cash flow, can't seem to see how old he is but yeah he outright fucked himself! Oh well guess the prank was funny for everyone else now that its on him.

What joy does one get from giving someone something only to take it away from them? That's messed up... Oh well, he got destroyed, LOL. EDIT: Honestly, I hope the the streamers just give the money back. Sure, the kid was being dumb, but that's quite the bill for being so.

I don't get it, it's a compilation?
It's a compilation of Twitch streamers receiving huge amounts in donation money from the same guy named iNexus_Ninja.

The "prank" he was trying to pull was him donating a lot of money, then withdrawing the donation at a later stage, leaving the streamer with nothing. This stuff happens quite a lot on Twitch thanks to Paypal's option to withdraw a payment.

However, joke's on him as apparantly PayPal refuses to refund the money.

Incredibly harsh lesson to learn.

Dude will likely be in debt the rest of his life now.

Just checked his Twitter, he has a $1000/month PayPal bill from this it seems.

In the video, they said it was verified (not pending)? So it was pure cash on their end? Not sure how paypal works as far as donations go.

Hopefully he is rich and can pay. If not in the end the credit card companies will charge us in some fashion to get the money back they lost.

Is this legit? Chargeback would mean he used a credit card but you're telling me fraud protection did not kick in almost immediately? No way. Regardless, even with PayPal denying the chargbacks he can still get back his money as it is up to the credit card company really. PayPal will come after him though.
