Clickbait articles using images of Mo Vlogs
While surfing the internet, chances are, you’ve noticed those annoying scam articles at the bottom of webpages that would’ve, at one point, highly tempted you to check it out because of its wacky headlines.
When it comes to Dubai, these scammers go over the top. Some headlines read, “Here’s How This Worker Is Earning Millions In Dubai,” “20 Things That Only Happen In Dubai,” and “Make Money In Dubai Using This Trick.”
To make it look more authentic, some articles have been using Mo Vlogs’ as the featured image. Check it out:
Mo Vlogs fed up with the scam too
The YouTube sensation released a video back in 2016 saying it’s “completely ridiculous” about the malicious article featuring his photo with the headline, “He makes $2,150/Day now! Find out how”. He says,
“When I saw it I was like how the hell are they using my picture? I’m not gonna lie, it’s a nice picture. But if you guys know how to make that much every day please comment below I would love to make that work.”
