IShowSpeed Outsmarts Fortnite Scammer in Epic Fashion

In the world of Fortnite, IShowSpeed has become a household name. Known for his entertaining content, he has recently gained even more attention for his ability to outsmart scammers within the game. Previous encounters with scammers have left IShowSpeed frustrated, as opponents would often log off, rendering his hard-earned victories null and void.

However, in a recent online interaction, IShowSpeed turned the tables on a potential scammer in the most brilliant way. It started with a simple exchange of weapons, a common practice in the PvE mode of Fortnite known as Save The World. Typically, this type of trade occurs between known teammates, but IShowSpeed took a chance with a random player.

As a precautionary measure, IShowSpeed made sure to livestream the encounter to protect himself from being scammed. The trade took place within IShowSpeed's own Homebase, where he built two boxes to facilitate the exchange. The scammer placed his weapons in his box, separated from IShowSpeed's box by only a window.

Before the scammer could react, IShowSpeed quickly built a wall behind him, trapping him inside his box and preventing access to the loot he had dropped. This clever move took advantage of the limited editing capabilities in Fortnite, allowing IShowSpeed to control the situation.

With the scammer trapped and separated from his loot, IShowSpeed proudly declared, “Scammers get scammed!” He wasted no time rushing around the build to collect the weapons that were supposed to be paid for. It became clear that the scammer had underestimated IShowSpeed's quick thinking and ended up falling victim to his own scam.

The incident quickly gained attention, with many users on social media finding humor in the scammer's misfortune. While some questioned the morality of broadcasting the encounter, it is unlikely that Epic Games will intervene. This serves as a reminder to scammers within Fortnite that their actions may not always go unpunished.

In the world of Fortnite, IShowSpeed has proven himself to be not only an entertainer but also a master of outsmarting scammers. His latest encounter serves as a cautionary tale to those who attempt to take advantage of others within the game.
