- Ex-Warzone pro turned streamer Neslo breaks silence after a month
- It turns out a hacker got hold of much of his personal information
- He explains his predicament in detail in a TwitLonger
Neslo, a former Call of Duty professional turned streamer, has been absent for a few months but has returned to explain the reason why.
Neslo Got Hacked
Call of Duty Warzone hackers have been a big nuisance for both players and streamers ever since the launch of the game. But what happens when some of them try to steal your identity? This happened to Jeremy “Neslo” Olsen who was a Call of Duty pro, popular for his part in Team Kaliber. Neslo has been a known face, particularly as a professional streamer and a retired Warzone tournament player.
This popularity has brought the streamer some unwanted attention. Starting in mid-October, the streamer wasn’t active on any of his social media, with only brief updates to his fans from time to time, letting them know that he has problems involving a hacker.
In some other tweets he has expressed his desire to play, but he was frustrated that he cannot.
Neslo Explains What’s Been Happening behind the Scenes
On November 17, Neslo broke his silence with a full statement, explaining the details of his situation. The streamer returned back into the public’s view to play in the $400,000 World Series of Warzone tournament. Shortly after that, he posted a TwitLonger, in which he goes into the details of what happened.
In it, Neslo explains that apparently someone from his streaming and Discord community gained remote access to an old cellphone. This allowed the hacker to gain access to the streamer’s PC, bank info, essentially being able to steal his identity.
The content creator also attached a screenshot to his post, which shows that someone was trying to buy any personal information about him. A user by the name of “backdoorintorouter,” wrote that they were “planning something big.”
In his TwitLonger, Neslo called people he was once close to “pure evil and manipulative psychopaths”. The streamer wrote that he has notified authorities. “We know who it is, companies got enough information, it’s over with,” he wrote, suggesting that the problem is in the process of being resolved.
After his “hellish” experience, the streamer is hopeful for the future. With the release of Vanguard, and more content announced for Warzone, the streamer hopes to turn a new leaf.
