Help with my YouTube issue
GetHuman-poodotan's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.
YouTube doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-poodotan will need to dig through the advice provided by YouTube, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-poodotan can let us know if they help or not.
If time is of the essence or you are lost, we partner with a California-based expert help company with tech support available 24/7. Enjoy a $1 one-week trial membership and get help from a live person now: Talk now with an expert.
The issue in GetHuman-poodotan's own words
Report for harassment, cyber bullying and impersonation. (Other channels have also been doing this, as well as reporting the vile*rude*nasty comments by impersonation channel but so far we have received no response from YouTube. ... We are being harassed and bullied on YouTube, people are creating impersonation channels that looks almost identical to ours and using them to leave vile comments on YouTube. When someone receives a vile*nasty*rude*derogatory comment from the impersonation channel, and they go to that channel, they will see links to our videos, so if you click on any video, it will bring you back to our real channel and videos. It is confusing, and many people have been tricked into thinking we are doing this. We believe they have also been hacking old YouTube accounts and the email addresses associated with them as we received a notification about a comment we did not make (on an old YouTube account) and when we went to check the comment we were able to delete it ourselves. We also saw someone else post the same issue * days ago.**Examples on youtube:*OUR REAL CHANNEL LINKS: https:**www.youtube.com*channel*UCVCHrve*fRa*ZG*nvBGC**Q or https:**www.youtube.com*c*PooDotStinkPants**IMPERSONATION CHANNELS:*https:**www.youtube.com*channel*UCLMh*NxIF*lLEnZWDJMRrkA*https:**www.youtube.com*channel*UCTZ*tPED*GLXQhDh*Fc*T*A - we received the following comment from this channel today: "I dont know if u forgot it or u don't know but that's not the only guy this is a new trend theres hundred s of us and theres one YouTuber to blame he made the video telling us to do this why u reporting us why arent u reporting him ha?*"**We have also found through a google search under our channel name that there are videos of ours that do not match the description we wrote linking back to youtube. **PLEASE HELP ASAP, thank you.
People are confused by the impersonation channel and our real channel because the impersonation channel has not stolen content and re-uploaded. Instead, if you click on a video, it brings people back to our real video and channel. YouTube may not have realised these are co-ordinated attacks, and is happening frequently on many many channels.
We would like YouTube to contact us by phone so we can actually explain in detail what has been happening. We would like impersonation channels to be identified and removed (We received a comment today that there could be ***'s but we only know of * so far). We also discovered our YouTube videos have been linked world wide to many sites we have never visited and would like assistance from YouTube to tackle these problems.
We created the YouTube account PooDot StinkPants on **th February **** and have always been respectful and courteous online. We don't fight with people in comments and are never derogatory or rude in any way.
We have tried to report for cyber bullying and harassment and channel impersonations. Other channels have been reporting comments for abuse. (some told us they even reported us by accident) We created a video about this to raise awareness to help other channels, have been trying to contact youtube through their official channels, and telling as many people in the YouTube community as we can.
