Everyone is talking about Established Titles. Is it a scam? Or is it just a gag gift? I actually did a sponsorship deal with them a year ago and had to go back and investigate after the uproar in my comments.
Thanks to Scott Shafer for coming on my channel and sharing his investigation. Watch his video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2W2TJZYHsw

Amateur astronomers sometimes end up doing "customer service" for the "star name companies" by helping people find the star that may not be where they were told it was, the star may be unobservable, and sometimes break the sad news astronomers will never use the name.
Don’t stop at ET … don’t fall for all of what they do …
saw a sponsor from wavywebsurf last week not seen it again since, did some digging of my own after reading his comments and then did a youtube search and found the video you mentioned and its clear its a scam
Oh Lord…. 😛
me honest not worry me much. because pleasant green say at the start it just a joke. but still look out when you buying it. there just selling fake toys. but glad seems like doing something helpful ish. and 50 bruh can cant beat it. that like normal day food prices. guess depends on your job. but let not get to far in it.
I bet the Star Registry one is a scam too.
you cant put on credit card that i know
He's always sponsoring scams though…. This one was soonobvous though. No investigation needed. This is just like selling a star…
i did this 15 year ago and yes its on my bank and credit card i had laird
I thought the one that I saw in a YouTube clip was a cute gift to help plant trees and help reforestation but the information on the product on their goals aren't as advertised.
It's a scam. Create and print your own fake document instead on some nice glossy paper and donate in full to some random charity
I received a fake email yesterday from someone claiming to be from Amazon. It said there had been malicious activity on my account and that I needed to change my password. When I clicked the link I got a warning saying it wasn't safe so I didn't go any further 🙈
OH NO! I was going to buy one so I could get a Scottish Passport for when they rejoin the EU 😉🤣
The “owning a star” and plot of land were novelty I thought. I guess some people are too gullible 😊
Hi. I have noticed in your videos there is something under your seat. What is it?
I wanted to buy this a few months ago, but it being almost 100 dollars is what turned me away. Good riddence
I believe there's a company that sells "land" on an old oil rig. idk why everyone got so salty over this, you're clearly just buying a piece of paper.
Us Scottish don't want Americans chasing our Haggis about, and annoying Nessie!! Leave us alone….lmao 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🏴🏴🏴
The ad is very misleading. They claim you get a 1 square foot of land. However you really don’t get the 1 sq ft. They should not say that you own the land.
Really simple logic test. Do you think every person in Scotland who owns their own home is a lord?
Maybe you think no one owns their own homes in Scotland?
If the answer is no to both it’s then it’s pretty obvious that it must be scam
I'm actually really sad that I fell for this scam. Scotland is my favorite place I've ever been, and they said it was a program meant to conserve the natural land there. And I'd be lying if I also wasn't excited about being a Lady. I even told my mom and my friends. Ugh, so embarrassing.
just identify as a lord and wala!!!
Here's the bottom line for me: Just because an average person should be able to detect that this is just a "gag" gift, that doesn't negate Established Titles from providing reasonable transparency such that it''s also clear for people that don't get the "joke." You cannot just bury the fact that the product that you're selling is bogus deep in a FAQ while splash pages on your site contain verbiage that it's real. It's similar to the reason that things like ads for "Psychic Hotlines" contain legal disclaimers that their services are "for entertainment purposes only." However, I don't blame YouTubers for understanding Established Titles' lack of transparency and contradictory claims.
Finally someone is showing what I've been saying since that crap first appeared….
You become a laird or land owner in English…….
Not a lord at all and it's simply a misleading scam but wow, it is literally worse than i thought, you don't even own it….. 😂🤣😂
I admire that you own up to having been initially duped
The idea that you could put "Lord" on your boarding passes always seemed a bit sketchy to me. First, when you buy your plane tickets, you have the option to choose the title "Mr" Ms" Mrs" or "Dr," but "Lord" and "Lady" aren't among the options, so I was convinced it wasn't possible. Second, it seems that for TSA and other security purposes, falsely identifying yourself by a noble title on your pass could get you into trouble. I'm no legal expert about that, but I certainly wouldn't want to risk providing false information to any government agency.
My son bought into this scam. I showed him the truth, and that it was not backed up in any way. He called and got a refund.
