Another individual who is a video editor wrote that, “Ruchir also scammed me. Fa2 had Ruchir as his manager back in the day. I approached fa2 as a video editor and he asked me to contact Ruchir. Ruchir made me edit 2-3 videos and he posted one of those videos and when I asked for money or more work I could do he did not even reply to my message and scammed me but I cannot do shit. But I knew God will help me and now he is here”.

Shubham "Driger" Quiriyal a Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) athlete for Orangutan also wrote on Twitter/X, “Guess I may be in the Top 5 leaderboard of Ruchir’s scam fund with 50k”.

In a recent live stream, Manoj “Sentinel” Kashyap the owner of Velocity Gaming also shared his thoughts on the issue and said, "There is an addiction of having subscriber growth or increasing views on videos. This is what I think has happened with Ruchir, because there is a lot of difference between the Ruchir I know and the one in the market currently”.

People have also posted images showing Ruchir attempting to sell his YouTube account as security for the money he was borrowing in other cases. Selling channels is a violation of YouTube's community guidelines.
