Please read this.

This is a warning for people new to the internet, and/or YouTube.

If you see a post/reply saying something along the lines of

"Click here to get free things!" Or anything else.

DO NOT CLICK IT!

It is a scam and you will get hacked!

If you do happen to see one, do not feel bad to report those comments on ANY video!

Again, this is for people new to the internet, and/or YouTube.

Thank you for reading this comment :).
