Social media influencer Shadab Khan, who enjoys a massive following on Instagram and other social media platforms, has filed a complaint against Sagar Gokhale, Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, and Renowned Music Composer A.R. Rehman, the founders, and co-founders of the company named Qyuki Digital Media Private Limited for cheating. Shadab in his complaint alleged that they hijacked his Google AdSense account on Youtube and siphoned $2600 thereby also committing theft.
We also received a copy of the complaint. In the complaint, Shadab has mentioned that after his YouTube account got monetized, he created a Google AdSense account where all the revenue generated from his YouTube channel was deposited. He then reached out to Qyuki and entered into a contract with them for the promotion and sponsorship of his YouTube channel. By the virtue of this, he provided the company with access to his Google AdSense account. According to the contract, the revenue generated had to be divided on a 60 (Shadab) – 40 (Qyuki) basis, but even after uploading videos timely, just like he used to, he did not receive any money from the company.
According to the complaint, Shadab then tried to reach out to the company authorities through calls, texts, and voice messages in order to terminate his business with the company because of their neglect in paying his hard-earned money, and to his utter shock the company deliberately delinked him with his
Google AdSense account by hijacking it without his permission because of which he claims to have been
defrauded for an amount up to the tune of $2600 by the authorities at Qyuki.
“It’s a serious criminal act and police authorities are investigating the matter thoroughly, nobody should be cheated, in the present complaint my client is a hard-working person and he is anticipating justice by following due process of law against such unscrupulous companies.”, Shadab Khan’s Lawyer Ali Kaashif Khan Deshmukh EXCLUSIVELY told RealityPost.
When we contacted Shadab Khan, He confirmed the same and said,“This company till date have not paid me single penny for my hard work and efforts, hardly anyone comes ahead against such companies, I am sure there must be many like me who have been cheated by them I would request them all to come forth and expose their criminal acts completely. I have respect for the law and I have complete faith in the judiciary.”
Police have served the notice to the Company and according to our sources, they have responded saying that they will give a reply on the same in 4 days. Shadab Khan have also been asked to record his statement at Khar Police Station Today on 23rd April 2021.
