Many top Youtubers have been sponsored by a company called Established Titles recently. It's a classic vanity/novelty scam.
The rabbit hole goes deep. I provide some extra detail not in other videos.
Kamikoto Knives, Fail Ventures, and Galton Voysey are all part of it.
Highland Titles is another company offers the same thing, land in Scotland and the title of Lord or Lady

    The info was so easy to find yet big YouTubers that do hours long research deep dives couldn’t dig a little deeper for sponsors, just a shame all round. I’m positive the influencers didn’t know it was shady but I’m just so darn disappointed especially with a couple of the popular YouTubers that usually expose grifters and scams, how ironic and moronic! Great video. Sending love to you from NSW 👍✌️

    It smelt like BS from the start, cheers.

    I get how this could be a scam, but how are the knives a scam? Are people not getting the knives? It is kind of disingenuous on your part to call the knives a scam if they actually deliver a product. They may be crappy mass produced knives and have affiliations with this company, but that is not a scam. I am a big fan of yours but you should be more careful when you call something a scam, referring to the knives. I'm sure you are fine in Australia, but if you lived in thier jurisdiction you could be exposed to some legal trouble if you call a company a scam. Just be careful Dave, I agree that established titles is dumb, but if they deliver what they advertise, a 1 square foot plot of land and a "novelty" title, then you can't really call it a scam… it is just a really stupid business and idea in general haha. What people don't realize is you can call yourself whatever, and as long as it is legal in your country, you can do it. Being a "lord" does not give anyone any special privilege legally or socially, so it is purely a fiction for sale. But, if people pay for a fiction and recieve what they wanted, then it is not really a scam.

    Dave and everybody, just watched Dave's take on this and in the VERY NEXT VIDEO, I'm a subscriber to Sailing Uma which is a program of weekly installments of young couple called Kika and Dan sailing their boat Uma around the world. They're in the Med right now. Kika is talking to her alter ego about what to get Dan for his birthday. Yup! Call him Lord Dan.

    I don't understand what the scam supposedly is. It's a novelty gift, somebody gets a bit of amusement from it, nothing scammy about it.
    I'm American. I can legally call myself "Lord Whatever" with or without something like this, it means nothing here. My dog is a lord, his name starts with Sir. I didn't pay anybody for it, of course, but there it is.
    So what's the problem with YouTubers making a bit of cash promoting a bit of silliness?

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars All Alpha Zero Beta says:

    I really wish that YouTubers could get spots with real brand names like one of the Gaint Soda Cola brands. But they're too worried that if they did in video spots with 1,000 youtubers, 3 to 4 years from now one of those YouTubers will be caught on camera singing along to a rap song and say the N word with the song. Media will fake a panic about it. (Most people won't actually care.) And the only reason the media will cover it is because those YouTubers are competing with them for those advertising dollars. So YouTubers are stuck with Late-Night Infomercial grade products that are at best cheap crap masquerading as premium products. Kamikoto, RayCon, Blaux, etc. I guess there might be some legit stuff advertised but I don't trust it if advertised here.

    I want to see a video where someone goes around to websites like these, compiles how many trees each ones claims they have 'planted' and tally them up. See how many saplings have supposedly been planted. I'd bet the figure is ridiculously high. Established titles for example was founded in 2019, so being generous and saying Jan 1st 2019 to Jan 1st 2023 for our numbers we get a total life of 1,460 days. Their website doesn't even have the tree counter anymore, I think because someone did the same thing I am doing. But we can use the 2 million number from Dave's Video. Thats 1,370 trees per day! Even going by One Tree Planted's number of an average $1 per tree, thats still $1,370 per day supposedly donated by Established Titles. Clearly there is a discrepancy in the numbers on their website how they went from ~42k trees to ~2 million in just a week or so, but maybe they just forgot to update it…. What does 1,300 trees per day look like? Well, if you are hand loading into a semi truck thats 6 hours of the day gone (from a florists website) just packing almost 1400 trees into a semi-truck. Not to mention the time required to haul them out into the wild to old logging camps where there are no real roads. So you are using hand carts, animals, or slow offroad vehicles. It would be a full time job 8 hours a day for a 50 man crew just to plant 1300 trees per day. Now how many places are also claiming that much volume?

    Doctor Mike was taken in by this; in his pitch, he claimed to have bought a title for his father as a gag gift. (Such sentimental [peewoop]) Still, as novelty title scams go, this is fairly innocuous, and as novelty Christmas gifts go, it is far less expensive than other gifts that will quickly become a shelf queen or wall hanger like a juke box or a guitar.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brick says:

    One does not simply buy land on the internet. If you own a piece of land the government is going to come after its pound of flesh, i.e property taxes. Especially the Scottish government, who'd tax the air you breathe given the chance.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rx7man says:

    I think a better name for them would be Embellished Titles

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mikko Pulkkinen says:

    What a bizarre video. If it's a scam, then the people perpetrating the scam are at fault, including the youtubers. Needing to make money is obviously not an excuse, even though Dave somehow pretends it is.

    But how in the fuck is this a scam? They call it a novelty gift. You would have to be seriously mentally challenged to think you're actually becoming a lord or whatever.

    White van established titles scam

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Watt says:

    Dave, they apparently own several areas of land in Scotland: one of which is in the area I grew up in.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sven Rötters says:

    I know YouTubers struggle to make a living, but any sponsorship does bleed over to their reputation.
    If they take those shady sponsorship's, at least be smart about it. Make it so that a certain amount of arrow presses let anyone skip it (e.g. LTT 2x arrow right and you skip the ad), add a chapter mark or change the layout of what we see, so we can scroll over it.
    If they don't do even that, guess what happens …

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Claire M says:

    Sounds like a great gift for Karen 😂

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mirko says:

    This needs more attention. The knife scam is currently making the rounds again so they can get some of the Christmas money.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blake says:

    I always saw it like naming a star. I never thought of it as a scam because it's like a novelty. I suppose I can see what you mean with it being a bit dubious but I always figured everyone just knew it was not a real thing just for fun, and a bit of a waste of money

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars IanScottJohnston says:

    Born and bred in Scotland I find the whole proposition of selling Scottish titles absolutely ludicrous and insulting.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sourand jaded says:

    saw these years ago, always knew it for what it was. the whole concept is nonsense. exactly that. tawdry vanity "gifts". nothing at all.
    i remember the debunk about them then… probably neil…

    surprised me to see them start popping up again recently. thought it was dead and buried long ago.

    oh well.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars aquapendulum says:

    This is what happens when you take sponsorship from source other than RAID: SHADOW LEGENDS, the most ambitious mobile RPG of 2019, play for free now to claim free champions! Link in the description.

    And if in some way it was real, the posh people would have stopped it to keep the unwashed masses away.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eddie Haskell says:

    For a small fee, you too can own a piece of land near where I live and call yourself a Thane, or an Earl.
    I'm sure my neighbor won't mind.
    Just send your name, address, Social Security number and $800 on your credit card to this Webzone and I'll send you some of my Pizza Rolls.

    You should do an Elon: Just buy the bloody show!!!

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars grzegorz_brzęczyszczykiewicz says:

    It the internet era an access to information is easier than ever in human history yet people just stopped searching, no sympathy for the youtubers they should do a bit of research so they don't promote scams, youtubers do better don't be greedy

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Girdlestone says:

    To think these assholes are on my doorstep (I live in Hong Kong). Scumbags to the core.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ieatiron says:

    I can add that china often bases their companies in Hong Kong to look more legitimate

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars K-Mc says:

    As a regular Scotsman, i need mind bleach after seeing so many people shilling this crap.
    I would consider it a tax on the stupid.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Samantha Kerridge says:

    Yesterday a lad at work said he was getting one for his girlfriend…. I just shook my head in disbelief that a seemingly intelligent guy fell for this.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AZREDFERN says:

    I honestly wish you would seek out companies you truely believe in to sponsor them. Not only get some money for your work, but also to help people find a quality product. I bought your multimeter because you approved of it on a personal level, and it’s been doing me well for the past 5 or so years.
