Logan Paul, one of the biggest social media influencers and Pokemon enthusiasts on the planet has been duped off $3.5 million. The social media star recently spent $3.5 million on ‘supposedly’ rare first edition Pokemon base cards set.
Taking to his official Twitter handle on 20th December, he wrote “Just dropped $3,500,000 on this sealed & authenticated box of 1st Edition Pokémon cards.”
However, soon after Logan Paul announced his new and expensive Pokemon investment to the world, he started receiving messages about the possibility that his cards are fake. Even the famous outlet that covers all-things Pokemon (PokeBeach) reported in their story that Logan Paul’s most recent base set purchase might be fake. (Due courtesy to them).
‘They Don’t Look Right’
Some other prominent card collectors have also rang the alarm about the base set card not being truly authentic. It seems to some card collectors that Logan Paul has been duped by the seller.
In the latest video that Logan Paul uploaded on his YouTube channel, he revealed that his $3.5 million purchase of the 1st edition Pokemon card was fraudulent.
“See how they’re curvy and puffy. They’re very light… they don’t look right”
Logan quickly noticed the Pokemon boxes when they opened the case and says: “Why are they bending like that? What’s inside of them?”
‘Its Fake, Bro’
He then adds: “It’s fake, bro”.
Inside the case were G.I. Joe Cards, to Logan’s misfortune.
“I’m a super-positive person, bro, and I’m always the one to look on the bright side, and I’m trying, but this is so hard.
“I’m grateful for the things I have that are real now. Damn, bro, I just went from 11 first-edition boxes to five. We got f*****, end of story.”
