Verified JANGBRiCKS accounts

In this post are listed real accounts owned & operated by me. Assume anything else is fake.


These are me:


Don't get fooled!

  • Check carefully for simple spoofing such as:
    • Extra spaces.
    • Dashes & underscores.
    • Substitutions between uppercase 'i', lowercase 'L', and the number '1'.
    • Swapped letters & misspellings. 
  • If you see any unusual content claiming to be from me, always first assume it is fake, then verify.
  • If someone contacts you claiming to me, assume it is fake, then verify.
  • If someone contacts you claiming to be my friend, personal acquaintance, or family member (whether close or distant), definitely assume it is fake; it most likely is.
  • If someone contacts you claiming to have met me, talked to me over the phone, or been messaged by me, you should automatically assume it is fake; 99.999% of the time it is.
  • If someone posts a "screenshot" of a conversation with me or a piece of content I supposedly since "deleted," obviously assume it is fake; that's the oldest trick in the book, commonly referred to as "Photoshop."
  • If you see uncharacteristic content (foul language, insults, xenophobia, etc.) coming from a source that does appear to be a 100% verified account of mine, assume it is fake as the account may have been hacked.
  • If someone tries to impress you with purported "private" information about me, it's either a) fake or b) actually public information copied from a public source. Avoid contact with people who openly represent themselves as stalkers.

Verify, verify, VERIFY.  The Internet is flooded with fake news, fake content, and fake accounts.  This is extremely well known has been well documented by major media coverage almost every single day.  Any random person can sign up for any random site and give themselves an alias that sounds like someone else.  Elevate your awareness and wariness and don't fall victim to the simplest of traps.

  1. Hey JANG! Like your videos! Here in Melbourne sets are pretty expensive but I try to buy as many sets as possible. You can't check me out if you want, I'm just and Australian bloke trying to grow. :) I followed you on Instagram and Twitter ;)
