The channel was given a verification badge in order to be seen as legitimate as possible. Which obviously worked. Up to 20,000 people attended the named broadcast “GTA6 OUT NOW ! [BETA] – Early Access Beta Test – Twitch et Steam Exclusive” to attract customers. It lasted more than five hours, trapping some naive Internet users.

They clicked on the link provided before providing their Steam login information. Enough to allow hackers to access their accounts and potentially their banking details.
