A new scam targeting fans of the show promising leaked Stranger Things script to them at a price of $25 was causing a stir in the fandom recently. It was supposedly the Byler Script. It contained the now famous van scene where Will and Mike had a conversation.  And Will almost came out to his brother Jonathan. But the writers of the show took to their official social media accounts to debunk the rumors and call it an elaborate scam. 

 

Right after the first post, they announced that they would post excerpts of the script for free.
