Please take action on recent fraud and money laundering events!
First of all, I would like to state that I am only posting this here because I couldn't find any other media to convey my feedback to Twitch about the matter. This page looks more like an "ideas" page than a feedback page, but as there aren't any feedback media, I will write about it here. (The ticket page auto-directs users here when the option "feedback" is selected)
After the recent Twitch data leak, some users have noticed unusual bits activity in some small streamers' data in the Turkish community. After a short while, more data were discovered and a whole money laundering scandal was uncovered. It was discovered that some small streamers were using the bits system to launder money by working with credit card thieves who use stolen credit cards to purchase bits, send them to said streamers and receive half the revenue. The rabbit hole goes deeper and deeper which is why I can't write the whole story down here but a google search should do the trick for those who want to learn more...
What I want to stress on at the moment is Twitch's attitude on the event. Let alone take action on streamers who took part in criminal activity (even those who admitted to it live on stream), Twitch did not even acknowledge the situation in any shape or form. There was a Twitter hashtag (#temiztwitch), which even went globally trending. Many big streamers quit streaming on the platform for 5 days in protest and Twitch still did not respond.
Coming to the actual "feedback" and the purpose of this post; I, as a frequent Twitch user, don't want to support such a corporation that does not take action to improve their platform or support those who want to. I understand that taking action on such matters can be very difficult as a corporation. However, I don't buy it as an excuse in the situation where about 10 million USD were laundered. By not receiving any response from Twitch, I feel as if the Turkish community is not being taken seriously at all, getting ignored because Turkish streamers do not generate as much revenue as global or english-speaking streamers... As a Turkish user, I feel disappointed and expect a response about the situation.
Finally, thanks to the community team in advance for checking in the situation.(at least I hope they do). And I hope this post just does not get deleted. If I posted this on the wrong sub/platform, please show me where to leave my feedback properly.
