    To continue a thread I started requesting about 50 YouTube accounts.

    Last night I was working on the first 20 of 50 accounts to get them "established". Signed in just fine, no problems.

    NOW, I go to find that the first 10 accounts cannot be signed to! Says username or password is incorrect. Username is fine, as the channels are still up, so no ban. So is someone changing the passwords on these things? The accounts are still valid as far as I can see.

    I even went so far and took an HOUR to manually type in the username/password on the effected accounts.

    Is YouTube/Google pulling this shit? Or are Google accounts just that easy to hack? Or did I just get scammed?

    if the accounts are still there, than a password should be enough. contact the man who sold u those accounts.
    I am buying my yt accounts (and also gmails, facebook, yahoo) from DHeer. Just search for him on this site, he is quiet reliable and good.

    Of course the first thing you did after buying the accounts was change the passwords, right?

    Maybe the google account got SMSd or banned if they were made using those. Have happened before for me.

    check to see if you can login to gmail address associated with the youtube accounts, if it also says password incorrect then you have been scammed.

    It's definitely not Youtube. You would still be able to log in but it would ask you to phone verify the accounts. Sounds like the seller did a switcheroo with the pw if you can't log in.

    Yeah, you really have to change the passwords because people have been know to resell the same logins before. There are several good providers here but there will always be a new face with a cheaper price. Some times those are honest people working cheap to build a customer base but often you get what you pay for and they don't deliver what was promised.

    Nope, i've had accounts where it says 'password invalid' and the channels still worked.

    I then tried to logon to the google account associated with it and it asked for an SMS verification.

    After buying, did you change the passwords?

    Contact your seller...

    I did contact the seller and he tried the ten accounts and sure enough, he was not able to get in either. He's sending another 10 to replace these., so he is following up on this issue. The topic can be closed as it is resolved. Thanks. :)
