There was a 17-minute video posted on Youtube by The Fortnite Guy on February 7 accusing Kreo of scamming, selling, and trading Fortnite accounts along with dozens of Twitter DMs and Paypal receipts.
Luminosity Gaming is one of the worlds leading esports organizations with teams competing across numerous games including Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, SMITE, Counter-Strike, and Fortnite Battle Royale.
They signed four emerging Fortnite stars in July of 2018, with one of those stars being Nate ‘Kreo’ Kou who went on to win $45,000 during Week 4 of the Summer Skirmish NA series.
Luminosity Gaming went on to drop Kreo on the morning of February 8 due to the video and the undeniable proof that came along with it.
Update: Effective immediately @LG_Kreo has been released from the organization. We do not condone his behaviour, past or present and it is not consistent with what it means to be a professional gamer under our banner. We wish Kreo well and thank him for his time on LG.

The Fortnite Guy posted a 17-minute video that accused Kreo of scamming a 14-year-old, Noah, out of over $100, along with proof of Kreo selling and trading multiple Fortnite accounts which is against Epic Games’ Terms of Service.
Within one hour of the video being live on YouTube, The Fortnite Guy’s video went on to gain over 6,000 views.
Kreo made a public statement on Twitter via TwitLonger on February 7 accepting responsibility for the scam and apologized to the 14-year-old Noah.
Kreo attempted to send the $110 back to Noah through PayPal, however, Noah sent the money back saying “…I don’t want anything from [you] after what you did”.
Luminosity Gaming posted on their official Twitter on February 7 stating that they were aware of the incident, and they would update the community once they reached a decision.
Kreo has since disappeared from social media and has not made a statement since his original Twitter posting.
