On October 6, 2017, I went to a live stream hosted by a site called BabarTV.
The livestream was being streamed on a platform called Twitch.
When I asked about the show, I got a reply from the hosts: “It’s fake news.”
After I clicked on the link, a new stream was created on a different platform called DummyTV.
It looked similar to Twitch, with the exception that the streamer had changed the title of the show from Babar to Dummy.
The stream was then suspended.
I was confused, but I knew something was amiss.
What was the source of this new stream?
What could Babar TV possibly be talking about?
After I began to research the matter further, I realized that the source could be anyone, and that its hosts had been trying to spread false information.
This stream was actually a fake, and the hosts themselves had posted a fake tweet about me, saying that I had been “disappeared” by a “fraud.”
I was in the process of going to the police, and I knew that the police would find out soon enough.
Babar is a site that hosts “fake news,” or “fakes,” on its platform.
The fake content is mostly written by someone else, with an emphasis on the word “faked.”
It has a “dummy” tag, meaning that it’s made by someone with a dummy account and not the creator.
As I continued to research more, I discovered that I was not alone in my investigation.
I began talking to others who had witnessed the events that had happened in my case, as well as to people who were familiar with the content.
It quickly became apparent that it was all a scam.
At first, the scam involved a series of emails that were sent to me in the course of my investigation into Babar’s activities.
It was clear to me that the emails were coming from a server called Babars Server, which was being run by an account called Babys.
In the emails, Babys promised to provide a “free” service to anyone who would pay to subscribe to Babar.
The emails were signed with the name of Babys Server.
When asked about this email, Babars told me that they were not a scam, and added that they would be sending more emails to me soon.
The email that I received promised to “get rid of” any “disinformation” that Babys would publish.
When Babys eventually sent me a link to the email, it promised to remove “frivolous” material.
When it was time to pay for my subscription, Babies told me they would send me a code to use on the website.
After I had paid, I was sent an email that said that my subscription had been cancelled.
Babys, who was still running the scam, told me to contact them, but it was clear that I should go ahead and cancel my subscription.
Babars website now had a “paid” message that was no longer there.
Babes server has been suspended.
Babies has denied the existence of Babars server.
Babers has stated that they have not been receiving payments from people who pay to have their content removed from Babars.
Babos server is still active.
BabicTV, a Babar video-sharing site, was also suspended on October 6.
When contacted by Ars, Babic has stated they were only “suspended” because they received a DMCA takedown notice.
“As a result of a DMCA notification by Babar, we were temporarily suspended from the YouTube and Facebook channels on Babar,” Babic said in an email to Ars.
“However, we will continue to operate in the future.”
Babic did not respond to multiple requests for comment from Ars.
On October 7, the “fake” Babar livestream was restored, and Babys continued to run the scam.
I contacted Babar again, but the stream was no more.
It is unclear if Babys server has since been taken down, but this did not stop Babar from continuing the scam and trying to silence anyone who was trying to report its content.
