Early life[edit]

Sandoz began his career as a videographer with phone hoaxes.[2]

Sandoz is not a French name. The young French artist chose it as a reference to the Swiss pharmaceutical company based in Basel where he was employed.[3]

Sandoz' identity is unknown.[4] He hides his face in his videos by wearing sunglasses continuously. In an interview with a journalist he revealed that the he resided in the French city of Colmar,[5] and that he is married to a woman.


SFAM case[edit]

In 2005, he highlighted the methods that the French insurance company SFAM uses to solicit its customers. The company asked YouTube to remove his video in 2019. The video was removed but subsequently, the video's impact continued as several French consumer associations decide to look into the matter.

African scammers[edit]

In 2017, he unmasked his first scam, "A l'africaine" (English "in African way"). It was conducted by hackers based in French-speaking Africa with his video "I Uncovered a Scammer and He Went Berserk".

In 2019, he unmasked the methods of scamming PCS coupons "On Fait Barrage Aux Arnaqueurs Pcs Mastercard" (English: "Damned Pcs Mastercard Scrapers") where he shows how African hustlers steal bank details from victims.

In 2019, he published "Je Démasque Deux Arnaqueurs À Pôle Emploi" (English: "I unmask two scammers from French employment center") where he interviews a manager of a French employment center to teach users not to be fooled.

Comme j'aime case[edit]

In April 2019, he published "Enquête Sur L'arnaque Comme J'aime & Mimibio" (English: Investigation on the French Brands Comme J'aime and MimiBio"). It exposes the methods of commercial canvassing of the French companies Comme J'aime and Mimibio, which offers programs to slim down their European customers.

On October 8, 2019, Comme J'aime[6] was condemned by a Parisian court [7] for "his free week" described as a misleading business practice.[8]
