It was not a good day for Logan Paul. The YouTube star and boxer was scammed because he spent $3.5 million on Pokémon cards only to find out they were fake.
It all started when Paul threw the money at the cards, which he believed to be reminder boxes from the first edition of the “Pokemon Card Trading Game”. The post about them was immediately questioned by many of his followers, so he attempted to authenticate them through the Baseball Card Exchange, a reputable organization that deals with such matters.
They released a statement online today saying the boxes didn’t contain any Pokemon cards at all – they were actually GI Joe cards. And essentially worthless.
You can watch the full video above for the 26-year-old’s full explanation. Paul, who is 0-1 as a professional boxer and went the full eight rounds with the great Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition match last June, is currently looking to book his next match. And maybe get some of his money back.
