    I will explain what happened. This guy dm'd me on twitter telling me that would buy my youtube channel for 7,500 dollars.Thats a reasonable price because I have 44k subs and get thousands of views daily. So I agreed and made him owner of my channel because he said I had to make him owner first before he gives me the money. I made him the owner and next thing I noticed is he started deleting my videos. When I saw that, I immediately said pay me the money cause I knew he was up to something cause he just started deleting my videos and he hadn't paid me yet. Then he sends me a message and says something like, "your channel is locked, good luck getting it back." I quickly blocked him on twitter and removed him as owner of my channel. The problem is when I tried to go back to my channel I didn't see it available as an option! I signed into the gmail account associated with my youtube channel but when I tried to go on the channel I didn't see it. I then searched my channel up on youtube to see if it's been deleted or anything but it's still there. How can I get my channel back?

    Why would you make someone admin of your channel without getting payment first? You should have used escrow.com atleast.

    whenever someone pays you overpay for any item check everything properly and whenever you are in a deal never go first always use a trusted mediator or escrow service so that you can be on safer side.
