Most videos focus on Robert's creation of the package, but the payment ends, when secretly filmed in action in the hands of wanton thieves.
In a statement posted on Twitter, Robert said that not all victims of packing the packages are real thieves.
A friend of friends offered to put the package on his shoulders, and in turn, Robert paid them for a successful recovery of the device. It turned out that Robert's acquaintance entered some friends to steal a box, and two of these fake participants made the final cut of the video.
"It seems (and since then I've confirmed) in these two cases," thieves "were in fact the acquaintance of the person who is helping me," said Robert. He cut off the video.
"I'm really sorry about this," he added. "I am responsible for the content that goes to my channel and I should have done more here. I can guarantee that the reactions were true when the package was seized from my house." And he said that, I believe that my credibility is kind of a shot. "
