Japanese YouTuber’s Pet Fish Stole His Credit Card Info And Used It At Nintendo Store

If you’re one of the unlucky ones out there and have ever got your credit card stolen, then you know how frustrating it can get. But how’d you react when your pet fish used your credit card to make their Nintendo Store purchase? Yes, this happened to a Japanese YouTuber, Mutekimaru.

Mutekimaru uses sensors and motion-detecting software in his fish tank, enabling fish to play various Switch games. Yes, he is the same YouTuber whose fish completed Pokémon Ruby in 3000 hours of gameplay. He continued live streaming his fish playing different games after that and even grew an audience for it.

But one day during his livestream, the console suddenly crashed, and he stopped streaming for some time. But unbeknown to him, the fish accidentally started the game again and the livestream and carried on streaming like any other day. Not only this, when they weren’t under supervision, they went ahead and used his credit card!

Yes, they somehow managed to access the Nintendo Store, and from motion, tracing were able to “tick” the agree-to terms and legal policies. Then they linked his PayPal and topped up 4$ to the Nintendo Store account.

When the streamer checked out his Nintendo account after a livestream, he discovered that 4$ was added to his account. Later he realized what had happened, and his whole credit card information was leaked to the viewers.

Their mischief resulted in a 500-yen ($4) loss for Mutekimaru, and his credit card information was exposed as a result of the incident. However, the incident was an enjoyable experience for all watching, which led to the incident becoming all over the social media platform Twitter.
