A Twitch streamer by the name of “Jordyx3” thought a viewer was just being generous when “ChubaPapi21” entered his stream and donated a combined $5,100 over four separate donations. That has proven not to be the case, however.
Jordy has revealed that ChubaPapi21 has successfully filed a PayPal chargeback for the entire $5,100, nearly six months after the first donation. The reasoning behind the sudden chargeback was initially unclear, but ChubaPapi21, under a separate Twitch username, has admitted to Jordy he did it to “hurt people around you, your viewers, [and] streamers’ viewers.”
In his initial tweet discussing the incident, Jordy revealed he had fought a $5,100 chargeback that came through April 8, but the credit card company sided with the donator. He further explained in a Twitlonger the background of the donations, including how he met an awkward ChubaPapi21 at PAX Australia, who left to get drinks and didn’t return.
Thinking ChubaPapi21 may have had an emergency he needed the money for, Jordy tried to reach out to ChubaPapi21 on social media, but he found that ChubaPapi21’s Twitter, Instagram, and Twitch accounts were all gone. He did discover, though, ChubaPapi21 had changed his username on Twitch to “Stefansandan,” which had been asking what Jordy was going to do about the chargeback. This apparently tipped Jordy off, though, considering he had only told a few friends about the chargeback at that point.
Jordy then received whispers from Stefansandan, who said he had been waiting in Jordy’s recent streams to hear him talk about having the donations charged back. He also said he did it for the “satisfaction of hurting everyone else, and the satisfaction that I just don’t care how anyone else feels or how anyone else feels.”
When Jordy pointed out how he didn’t give a sob story to prompt a donation, Sandanstefan said Jordy was simply “collateral damage.”
And while this situation is incredible bizarre and disheartening, Jordy’s story seemed to resonate with people. In fact, numerous people donated to Jordy, according to the streamer, which apparently canceled out the amount he had lost in the chargeback.
