Collecting Pokemon Cards has become a hobby for many people around the world, who are also investing huge sums to trade rare cards.

However, a £ 290,000 deal for a box of first edition rare Pokémon cards, which was broadcast live on the internet ended in disaster for YouTuber when the cards were found to be fake. US investor Chris Camillo took an interest in Pokemon trading cards after seeing the rocket card market last year, The Guardian reported.

Earlier this year, rapper Logic paid £ 173,000 for a single blank 1999 Charizard card earlier this month.

Upon opening the sealed box, the YouTuber was stunned to find that the cards were counterfeit. Fortunately, the money has yet to be paid and was sealed in a silver briefcase filled with $ 100 bills during the live broadcast. When the box was opened, they realized that the “rare” cards they wanted to buy were in fact replaced with common, damaged, or worthless fill sets.
