The 2016 CS:GO Skin Gambling Scandal: TmarTn, ProSyndicate and the FTC

by Daniel Rosen 10d ago

Trevor “TmarTn” Martin and Tom “ProSyndicate” Cassell are two popular YouTubers, who, in late 2015, came up with a brilliant scheme to make themelves rich.

They were going to run a classic casino scam.

Specifically, they were going to get people hooked on a CS:GO gambling site they owned, but not tell anyone they owned it. It had all the makings of a great scam.

The only problem was that CS:GO gambling was a massive, underground industry that chugged along in the dark alleys beneath the squeaky clean exterior of CS:GO esports. And these two dinguses managed to help to expose and explode one of gaming’s most elaborate grey markets with just a few simple videos.
