Flatten the Curve. #18. The current cold war between China and America explained. And how China was behind the 2008 Wall Street financial Crash. World War 3 is coming.

China, the USA, and the Afghanistan war are linked. And in order to get here, we will start there.
9-11 happened. Most of the planet mistakenly understood terrorists had struck a blow against Freedom and Capitalism and Democracy. It was time to invade Afghanistan. Yet all of the terrorists were linked to Saudi Arabia and not Afghanistan, that didn't make sense either. Yet they invaded to find Bin Laden, an ex CIA asset against the Soviet Union and it's subjugation of Afghanistan. The land in the middle of nowhere in relation to North America and the West. It was barren. A backwater without any strategic importance or natural resources.
Or was there?
The survey for rare earth elements was only made possible by the 2001 U.S. invasion, with work beginning in 2004. Mirzad says the Russians had already done significant surveying work during their military occupation of the country in the 1980s. Mirzad also toes the line for U.S. corporations, arguing, “The Afghan government should not touch the mining business. We have to give enough information to potential investors.”
Rare Earth Elements. The elements that make the information age possible. People could understand the First Gulf War and the Geopolitical importance of oil. That was easy, but it still didn't sound morally just to have a war for oil. It was too imperialist and so they fell in line and supported a war for Kuwaiti freedom instead, despite the obvious and public manipulation at the UN by Nayirah.
This is some of her testimony to the Human Rights Council.
While I was there, I saw the Iraqi soldiers come into the hospital with guns. They took the babies out of the incubators, took the incubators and left the children to die on the cold floor. It was horrifying. I could not help but think of my nephew who was born premature and might have died that day as well. After I left the hospital, some of my friends and I distributed flyers condemning the Iraqi invasion until we were warned we might be killed if the Iraqis saw us.
The Iraqis have destroyed everything in Kuwait. They stripped the supermarkets of food, the pharmacies of medicine, the factories of medical supplies, ransacked their houses and tortured neighbors and friends.
There was only one problem. She was the daughter of Saud Al-Sabah, the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States. Furthermore, it was revealed that her testimony was organized as part of the Citizens for a Free Kuwait public relations campaign, which was run by the American public relations firm Hill & Knowlton for the Kuwaiti government (fun fact, Hill & Knowlton also have extensive ties with Bill Gates).
So the public was aghast at her testimony and supported the war against the mainly Soviet backed, but also American supported and Soviet backed Saddam Hussein, in his war against Iran, after the Iranians refused to Ally with American interests after the Islamic Revolution.
But that was oil, this was Rare Earth Elements. There was a reason the war was called, Operation Enduring Freedom. This natural resource was far more important in the long run. You couldn't have a security surveillance apparatus without it. And what was supposed to be a war on terror was in actuality a territorial occupation for resources.
Sleeping Dragon China is next, and where there's smoke, there's fire.
Let's go point form for clarity.
• China entered the rare earth market in the mid-1980s, at a time when the US was the major producer. But China soon caught up and became the production leader for rare earths. Its heavily state-supported strategy was aimed at dominating the global rare earth industry.
• 1989 Beijing’s Tiananmen Square spring. The U.S. government suspends military sales to Beijing and freezes relations.
• 1997. Clinton secures the release of Wei and Tiananmen Square protester Wang Dan. Beijing deports both dissidents to the United States. (If you don't understand these two were CIA assets working in China, you need to accept that not everything will be published. America wouldn't care about two political activists, but why would care about two intelligence operatives).
• March 1996. Taiwan’s First Free Presidential Vote.
• May 1999. America "accidently" bombs the Belgrade Chinese Embassy.
• 2002 Price competitiveness was hard for the USA to achieve due to low to non-existent Chinese environmental standards; as a result, the US finally stopped its rare earth production.
• October 2000. U.S. President Bill Clinton signs the U.S.-China Relations Act. China's take over of the market share in rare earth elements starts to increase.
• October 2001. Afghanistan war Enduring Freedom started to secure rare earth elements (Haven't you ever wondered how they could mobilize and invade so quickly? The military was already prepared).
• 2005. China establishes a monopoly on global production by keeping mineral prices low and then panics markets by introducing export quotas to raise prices by limiting supply.
• Rare Earth Elements. Prices go into the stratosphere (for example, dysprosium prices do a bitcoin, rocketing from $118/kg to $2,262/kg between 2008 and 2011).
• In a September 2005. Deputy Secretary of State Robert B. Zoellick initiates a strategic dialogue with China. This was presented as dialog to acknowledge China's emergence as a Superpower (which China probably insisted on), but it was about rare earth elements market price.
• October 2006. China allows North Korea to conduct its first nuclear test, China serves as a mediator to bring Pyongyang back to the negotiating table with the USA.
• September 2006. American housing prices start to fall.
(At some point after this, secret negotiations must have become increasingly hostile).
• March 2007. China Increases Military Spending. U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney says China’s military buildup is “not consistent” with the country’s stated goal of a “peaceful rise.”
• Mid-2005 and mid-2006. China bought between $100b and $250 billion of US housing debt between mid-2005 and mid-2006. This debt was bought using the same financial instruments that caused the financial collapse.
• 2006. Housing prices started to fall for the first time in decades.
• Mid-2006 and mid-2007. China likely added another $390b to its reserves. "At the same time, if China stopped buying -- especially now, when the private market is clogged up -- US financial markets would really seize up." Council on Foreign Relations-2007 August
• February 27, 2007. Stock markets in China and the U.S. fell by the most since 2003. Investors leave the money market and flock to Government backed Treasury Bills.
I've never seen it like this before,'' said Jim Galluzzo, who began trading short-maturity Treasuries 20 years ago and now trades bills at RBS Greenwich Capital in Greenwich, Connecticut.Bills right now are trading like dot-coms.''
We had clients asking to be pulled out of money market funds and wanting to get into Treasuries,'' said Henley Smith, fixed-income manager in New York at Castleton Partners, which oversees about $150 million in bonds.People are buying T-bills because you know exactly what's in it.''
• February 13, 2008. The Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 was enacted, which included a tax rebate. The total cost of this bill was projected at $152 billion for 2008. A December 2009 study found that only about one-third of the tax rebate was spent, providing only a modest amount of stimulus.
• September 2008. China Becomes Largest U.S. Foreign Creditor at 600 billion dollars.
• 2010. China’s market power peaked in when it reached a market share of around 97% of all rare earth mineral production. Outside of China, there were almost no other producers left.
Outside of China, the US is the second largest consumer of rare earths in the world behind Japan.
About 60% of US rare earth imports are used as catalysts for petroleum refining, making it the country’s major consumer of rare earths.
The US military also depends on rare earths. Many of the most advanced US weapon systems, including smart bombs, unmanned drones, cruise missiles, laser targeting, radar systems and the Joint Strike Fighter programme rely on rare earths. Against this background, the US Department of Defense (DoD) stated that “reliable access to the necessary material is a bedrock requirement for DOD”
• 2010. A trade dispute arose when the Chinese government reduced its export quotas by 40% in 2010, sending the rare earths prices in the markets outside China soaring. The government argued that the quotas were necessary to protect the environment.
• August 2010. China Becomes World’s Second-Largest Economy.
• November 2011. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton outlines a U.S. “pivot” to Asia. Clinton’s call for “increased investment—diplomatic, economic, strategic, and otherwise—in the Asia-Pacific region” is seen as a move to counter China’s growing clout.
• December 2011. U.S. President Barack Obama announces the United States and eight other nations have reached an agreement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership later announces plans to deploy 2,500 marines in Australia, prompting criticism from Beijing.
• November 2012. China’s New Leadership. Xi Jinping replaces Hu Jintao as president, Communist Party general secretary, and chairman of the Central Military Commission. Xi delivers a series of speeches on the “rejuvenation” of China.
• June 2013. U.S. President Barack Obama hosts Chinese President Xi Jinping for a “shirt-sleeves summit”
• May 19, 2014. A U.S. court indicts five Chinese hackers, allegedly with ties to China’s People’s Liberation Army, on charges of stealing trade technology from U.S. companies.
• November 12, 2014. Joint Climate Announcement. Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping issue a joint statement on climate change, pledging to reduce carbon emissions. (which very conveniently allows the quotas to fall and save pride for Xi).
• 2015. China drops the export quotas because in 2014, the WTO ruled against China.
• May 30, 2015 U.S. Warns China Over South China Sea. (China is trying to expand it's buffer zone to build a defense for the coming war).
• January 2016. The government to abolish the one-child policy, now allowing all families to have two children.
• February 9, 2017. Trump Affirms One China Policy After Raising Doubts.
• April 6 – 7, 2017. Trump Hosts Xi at Mar-a-Lago. Beijing and Washington to expand trade of products and services like beef, poultry, and electronic payments, though the countries do not address more contentious trade issues including aluminum, car parts, and steel.
• November 2017. President Xi meets with President Trump in another high profile summit.
• March 22, 2018. Trump Tariffs Target China. The White House alleges Chinese theft of U.S. technology and intellectual property. Coming on the heels of tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, the measures target goods including clothing, shoes, and electronics and restrict some Chinese investment in the United States.
• July 6, 2018 U.S.-China Trade War Escalates.
• September 2018. Modifications led to the exclusion of rare earths from the final list of products and they consequently were not subject to import tariffs imposed by the US government in September 2018.
• October 4, 2018. Pence Speech Signals Hard-Line Approach. He condemns what he calls growing Chinese military aggression, especially in the South China Sea, criticizes increased censorship and religious persecution by the Chinese government, and accuses China of stealing American intellectual property and interfering in U.S. elections.
• December 1, 2018. Canada Arrests Huawei Executive.
• March 6, 2019. Huawei Sues the United States.
• March 27 2019. India and the US signed an agreement to "strengthen bilateral security and civil nuclear cooperation" including the construction of six American nuclear reactors in India
• May 10, 2019. Trade War Intensifies.
• August 5, 2019. U.S. Labels China a Currency Manipulator.
• November 27, 2019. Trump Signs Bill Supporting Hong Kong Protesters. Chinese officials condemn the move, impose sanctions on several U.S.-based organizations, and suspend U.S. warship visits to Hong Kong.
• January 15, 2020. ‘Phase One’ Trade Deal Signed. But the agreement maintains most tariffs and does not mention the Chinese government’s extensive subsidies. Days before the signing, the United States dropped its designation of China as a currency manipulator.
• January 31, 2020. Tensions Soar Amid Coronavirus Pandemic.
• March 18, 2020. China Expels American Journalists. The Chinese government announces it will expel at least thirteen journalists from three U.S. newspapers—the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post—whose press credentials are set to expire in 2020. Beijing also demands that those outlets, as well as TIME and Voice of America, share information with the government about their operations in China. The Chinese Foreign Ministry says the moves are in response to the U.S. government’s decision earlier in the year to limit the number of Chinese journalists from five state-run media outlets in the United States to 100, down from 160, and designate those outlets as foreign missions.
And here we are. You may have noticed the Rare Earth Elements and the inclusion of Environmental Standards. Yes these are key to understanding the Geopolitical reality and importance of these events. There's a reason the one child policy stopped. Troop additions.
I believe our current political reality started at Tiananmen square. The protests were an American sponsored attempt at regime change after the failure to convince them to leave totalitarian communism and join a greater political framework.
Do I have proof? Yes.
China, as far as I'm concerned, was responsible for the 2008 economic crisis. The Rare Earth Elements were an attempt to weaken the States and strengthen themselves simultaneously. This stranglehold either forced America to trade with China, or the trade was an American Trojan horse to eventually collapse their economy and cause a revolution after Tiananmen Square failed. Does my second proposal sound far fetched? Didn't the economy just shut down in response to the epidemic? Aren't both sides blaming the other? At this POINT, the epidemic seems to be overstated doesn’t it? Don't the casualties tend to the elder demographic and those already weakened by a primary disease?
Exactly the kinds who wouldn't fight in a war.
Does this change some of my views on the possibility of upcoming catastrophes and reasons for certain events? No. This is Chess, and there are obvious moves in chess, hidden moves in chess, but the best moves involve peices which can be utilized in different ways if the board calls for it.
Is all what it seems? No.
I definitely changed a few previously held beliefs prior to today, and I would caution you in advance that you will find some previously held convictions challenged.
After uncovering what I did today, I would also strongly suggest reading information cautiously. This is all merely a culmination of ending the cold war, and once I have events laid out, you will see it as well.
At this moment, the end analysis is a war will start in the near future. This will be mainly for a few reasons, preemptive resource control for water and crops, population reduction can be achieved since we have too many people, not enough jobs, and upcoming resource scarcity.
Did you notice my omission of rare earth elements? This is because of Afghanistan. I would wager China or Russia is somehow supporting the continued resistance through Iran. But events are now accelerating with China because the western collation has already begun to build up their mines and start production.
Do you remember when Trump made a "joke" about buying Greenland? Yeah. It turns out that Greenland has one of the largest rare earth mineral deposits on the planet.
Take care. Be safe. Stay aware and be prepared.

/r/Scams Common Scam Master Post

Hello visitors and subscribers of scams! Here you will find a master list of common (and uncommon) scams that you may encounter online or in real life. Thank you to the many contributors who helped create this thread!

Blackmail email scam thread: https://old.reddit.com/Scams/comments/g8jqnthe_blackmail_email_scam_part_5//
Some of these articles are from small, local publications and refer to the scam happening in a specific area. Do not think that this means that the scam won't happen in your area.

Spoofing

Caller ID spoofing
It is very easy for anyone to make a phone call while having any number show up on the caller ID of the person receiving the phone call. Receiving a phone call from a certain number does not mean that the person/company who owns that number has actually called you.
Email spoofing
The "from" field of an email can be set by the sender, meaning that you can receive scam emails that look like they are from legitimate addresses. It's important to never click links in emails unless absolutely necessary, for example a password reset link you requested or an account activation link for an account you created.
SMS spoofing
SMS messages can be spoofed, so be wary of messages that seem to be from your friends or other trusted people.

The most common scams

The fake check scam (Credit to nimble2 for this part)
The fake check scam arises from many different situations (for instance, you applied for a job, or you are selling something on a place like Craigslist, or someone wants to purchase goods or services from your business, or you were offered a job as a mystery shopper, you were asked to wrap your car with an advertisement, or you received a check in the mail for no reason), but the bottom line is always something like this:
General fraudulent funds scams If somebody is asking you to accept and send out money as a favour or as part of a job, it is a fraudulent funds scam. It does not matter how they pay you, any payment on any service can be fraudulent and will be reversed when it is discovered to be fraudulent.
Phone verification code scams Someone will ask you to receive a verification text and then tell you to give them the code. Usually the code will come from Google Voice, or from Craigslist. In the Google version of the scam, your phone number will be used to verify a Google Voice account that the scammer will use to scam people with. In the Craigslist version of the scam, your phone number will be used to verify a Craigslist posting that the scammer will use to scam people. There is also an account takeover version of this scam that will involve the scammer sending a password reset token to your phone number and asking you for it.
Bitcoin job scams
Bitcoin job scams involve some sort of fraudulent funds transfer, usually a fake check although a fraudulent bank transfer can be used as well. The scammer will send you the fraudulent money and ask you to purchase bitcoins. This is a scam, and you will have zero recourse after you send the scammer bitcoins.
Email flooding
If you suddenly receive hundreds or thousands of spam emails, usually subscription confirmations, it's very likely that one of your online accounts has been taken over and is being used fraudulently. You should check any of your accounts that has a credit card linked to it, preferably from a computer other than the one you normally use. You should change all of your passwords to unique passwords and you should start using two factor authentication everywhere.
Boss/CEO scam A scammer will impersonate your boss or someone who works at your company and will ask you to run an errand for them, which will usually be purchasing gift cards and sending them the code. Once the scammer has the code, you have no recourse.
Employment certification scams
You will receive a job offer that is dependent on you completing a course or receiving a certification from a company the scammer tells you about. The scammer operates both websites and the job does not exist.
Craigslist fake payment scams
Scammers will ask you about your item that you have listed for sale on a site like Craigslist, and will ask to pay you via Paypal. They are scamming you, and the payment in most cases does not actually exist, the email you received was sent by the scammers. In cases where you have received a payment, the scammer can dispute the payment or the payment may be entirely fraudulent. The scammer will then either try to get you to send money to them using the fake funds that they did not send to you, or will ask you to ship the item, usually to a re-shipping facility or a parcel mule.
General fraudulent funds scams The fake check scam is not the only scam that involves accepting fraudulent/fake funds and purchasing items for scammers. If your job or opportunity involves accepting money and then using that money, it is almost certainly a frauduent funds scam. Even if the payment is through a bank transfer, Paypal, Venmo, Zelle, Interac e-Transfer, etc, it does not matter.
Credit card debt scam
Fraudsters will offer to pay off your bills, and will do so with fraudulent funds. Sometimes it will be your credit card bill, but it can be any bill that can be paid online. Once they pay it off, they will ask you to send them money or purchase items for them. The fraudulent transaction will be reversed in the future and you will never be able to keep the money. This scam happens on sites like Craigslist, Twitter, Instagram, and also some dating sites, including SeekingArrangement.
The parcel mule scam
A scammer will contact you with a job opportunity that involves accepting and reshipping packages. The packages are either stolen or fraudulently obtained items, and you will not be paid by the scammer. Here is a news article about a scam victim who fell for this scam and reshipped over 20 packages containing fraudulently acquired goods.
The Skype sex scam
You're on Facebook and you get a friend request from a cute girl you've never met. She wants to start sexting and trading nudes. She'll ask you to send pictures or videos or get on webcam where she can see you naked with your face in the picture. The scam: There's no girl. You've sent nudes to a guy pretending to be a girl. As soon as he has the pictures he'll demand money and threaten to send the pictures to your friends and family. Sometimes the scammer will upload the video to a porn site or Youtube to show that they are serious.
What to do if you are a victim of this scam: You cannot buy silence, you can only rent it. Paying the blackmailer will show them that the information they have is valuable and they will come after you for more money. Let your friends and family know that you were scammed and tell them to ignore friend requests or messages from people they don't know. Also, make sure your privacy settings are locked down and consider deactivating your account.
The underage girl scam
You're on a dating site or app and you get contacted by a cute girl. She wants to start sexting and trading nudes. Eventually she stops communicating and you get a call from a pissed off guy claiming to be the girl's father, or a police officer, or a private investigator, or something else along those lines. Turns out the girl you were sexting is underage, and her parents want some money for various reasons, such as to pay for a new phone, to pay for therapy, etc. There is, of course, no girl. You were communicating with a scammer.
What to do if you are a victim of this scam: Stop picking up the phone when the scammers call. Do not pay them, or they will be after you for more money.
Phishing
Phishing is when a scammer tries to trick you into giving information to them, such as your password or private financial information. Phishing messages will usually look very similar to official messages, and sometimes they are identical. If you are ever required to login to a different account in order to use a service, you should be incredibly cautious.
The blackmail email scam The exact wording of the emails varies, but there are generally four main parts. They claim to have placed software/malware on a porn/adult video site, they claim to have a video of you masturbating or watching porn, they threaten to release the video to your friends/family/loved ones/boss/dog, and they demand that you pay them in order for them to delete the video. Rest assured that this is a very common spam campaign and there is no truth behind the email or the threats. Here are some news articles about this scam.
The blackmail mail scam
This is very similar to the blackmail email scam, but you will receive a letter in the mail.
Rental scams Usually on local sites like Craigslist, scammers will steal photos from legitimate real estate listings and will list them for rent at or below market rate. They will generally be hesitant to tell you the address of the property for "safety reasons" and you will not be able to see the unit. They will then ask you to pay them a deposit and they claim they will ship you the keys. In reality, your money is gone and you will have no recourse.
Craigslist vehicle scams A scammer will list a vehicle on Craigslist and will offer to ship you the car. In many cases they will also falsely claim to sell you the car through eBay or Amazon. If you are looking for a car on Craigslist and the seller says anything about shipping the car, having an agent, gives you a long story about why they are selling the car, or the listing price is far too low, you are talking to a scammer and you should ignore and move on.
Advance-fee scam, also known as the 419 scam, or the Nigerian prince scam. You will receive a communication from someone who claims that you are entitled to a large sum of money, or you can help them obtain a large sum of money. However, they will need money from you before you receive the large sum.
Man in the middle scams
Man in the middle scams are very common and very hard to detect. The scammer will impersonate a company or person you are legitimately doing business with, and they will ask you to send the money to one of their own bank accounts or one controlled by a money mule. They have gained access to the legitimate persons email address, so there will be nothing suspicious about the email. To prevent this, make contact in a different way that lets you verify that the person you are talking to is the person you think you are talking to.
Cam girl voting/viewer scam
You will encounter a "cam girl" on a dating/messaging/social media/whatever site/app, and the scammer will ask you to go to their site and sign up with your credit card. They may offer a free show, or ask you to vote for them, or any number of other fake stories.
Amateur porn recruitment scam
You will encounter a "pornstar" on a dating/messaging/social media/whatever site/app, and the scammer will ask you to create an adult film with hehim, but first you need to do something. The story here is usually something to do with verifying your age, or you needing to take an STD test that involves sending money to a site operated by the scammer.
Hot girl SMS spam
You receive a text from a random number with a message along the lines of "Hey babe I'm here in town again if you wanted to meet up this time, are you around?" accompanied by a NSFW picture of a hot girl. It's spam, and they'll direct you to their scam website that requires a credit card.
Identity verification scam
You will encounter someone on a dating/messaging/social media/whatever site/app, and the scammer will ask that you verify your identity as they are worried about catfishing. The scammer operates the site, and you are not talking to whoever you think you are talking to.
This type of scam teases you with something, then tries to make you sign up for something else that costs money. The company involved is often innocent, but they turn a blind eye to the practice as it helps their bottom line, even if they have to occasionally issue refunds. A common variation takes place on dating sites/dating apps, where you will match with someone who claims to be a camgirl who wants you to sign up for a site and vote for her. Another variation takes place on local sites like Craigslist, where the scammers setup fake rental scams and demand that you go through a specific service for a credit check. Once you go through with it, the scammer will stop talking to you. Another variation also takes place on local sites like Craigslist, where scammers will contact you while you are selling a car and will ask you to purchase a Carfax-like report from a specific website.
Multi Level Marketing or Affiliate Marketing
You apply for a vague job listing for 'sales' on craigslist. Or maybe an old friend from high school adds you on Facebook and says they have an amazing business opportunity for you. Or maybe the well dressed guy who's always interviewing people in the Starbucks that you work at asks if you really want to be slinging coffee the rest of your life. The scam: MLMs are little more than pyramid schemes. They involve buying some sort of product (usually snake oil health products like body wraps or supplements) and shilling them to your friends and family. They claim that the really money is recruiting people underneath you who give you a slice of whatever they sell. And if those people underneath you recruit more people, you get a piece of their sales. Ideally if you big enough pyramid underneath you the money will roll in without any work on your part. Failure to see any profit will be your fault for not "wanting it enough." The companies will claim that you need to buy their extra training modules or webinars to really start selling. But in reality, the vast majority of people who buy into a MLM won't see a cent. At the end of the day all you'll be doing is annoying your friends and family with your constant recruitment efforts. What to look out for: Recruiters love to be vague. They won't tell you the name of the company or what exactly the job will entail. They'll pump you up with promises of "self-generating income", "being your own boss", and "owning your own company." They might ask you to read books about success and entrepreneurs. They're hoping you buy into the dream first. If you get approached via social media, check their timelines. MLMs will often instruct their victims to pretend that they've already made it. They'll constantly post about how they're hustling and making the big bucks and linking to youtube videos about success. Again, all very vague about what their job actually entails. If you think you're being recruited: Ask them what exactly the job is. If they can't answer its probably a MLM. Just walk away.

Phone scams

You should generally avoid answering or engaging with random phone calls. Picking up and engaging with a scam call tells the scammers that your phone number is active, and will usually lead to more calls.
Tax Call
You get a call from somebody claiming to be from your countries tax agency. They say you have unpaid taxes that need to be paid immediately, and you may be arrested or have other legal action taken against you if it is not paid. This scam has caused the American IRS, Canadian CRA, British HMRC, and Australian Tax Office to issue warnings. This scam happens in a wide variety of countries all over the world.
Warrant Call
Very similar to the tax call. You'll get a phone call from an "agent", "officer", "sheriff", or other law enforcement officer claiming that there is a warrant out for your arrest and you will be arrested very soon. They will then offer to settle everything for a fee, usually paid in giftcards.
[Legal Documents/Process Server Calls]
Very similar to the warrant call. You'll get a phone call from a scammer claiming that they are going to serve you legal documents, and they will threaten you with legal consequences if you refuse to comply. They may call themselves "investigators", and will sometimes give you a fake case number.
Student Loan Forgiveness Scam
Scammers will call you and tell you about a student loan forgiveness program, but they are interested in obtaining private information about you or demanding money in order to join the fake program.
Tech Support Call You receive a call from someone with a heavy accent claiming to be a technician Microsoft or your ISP. They inform you that your PC has a virus and your online banking and other accounts may be compromised if the virus is not removed. They'll have you type in commands and view diagnostics on your PC which shows proof of the virus. Then they'll have you install remote support software so the technician can work on your PC, remove the virus, and install security software. The cost of the labor and software can be hundreds of dollars. The scam: There's no virus. The technician isn't a technician and does not work for Microsoft or your ISP. Scammers (primarily out of India) use autodialers to cold-call everyone in the US. Any file they point out to you or command they have you run is completely benign. The software they sell you is either freeware or ineffective. What to do you if you're involved with this scam: If the scammers are remotely on your computer as you read this, turn off your PC or laptop via the power button immediately, and then if possible unplug your internet connection. Some of the more vindictive tech scammers have been known to create boot passwords on your computer if they think you've become wise to them and aren't going to pay up. Hang up on the scammers, block the number, and ignore any threats about payment. Performing a system restore on your PC is usually all that is required to remove the scammer's common remote access software. Reports of identity theft from fake tech calls are uncommon, but it would still be a good idea to change your passwords for online banking and monitor your accounts for any possible fraud. How to avoid: Ignore any calls claiming that your PC has a virus. Microsoft will never contact you. If you're unsure if a call claiming to be from your ISP is legit, hang up, and then dial the customer support number listed on a recent bill. If you have elderly relatives or family that isn't tech savvy, take the time to fill them in on this scam.
Chinese government scam
This scam is aimed at Chinese people living in Europe and North America, and involves a voicemail from someone claiming to be associated with the Chinese government, usually through the Chinese consulate/embassy, who is threatening legal action or making general threats.
Chinese shipping scam
This scam is similar to the Chinese government scam, but involves a seized/suspicious package, and the scammers will connect the victim to other scammers posing as Chinese government investigators.
Social security suspension scam
You will receive a call from someone claiming to work for the government regarding suspicious activity, fraud, or serious crimes connected to your social security number. You'll be asked to speak to an operator and the operator will explain the steps you need to follow in order to fix the problems. It's all a scam, and will lead to you losing money and could lead to identity theft if you give them private financial information.
Utilities cutoff
You get a call from someone who claims that they are from your utility company, and they claim that your utilities will be shut off unless you immediately pay. The scammer will usually ask for payment via gift cards, although they may ask for payment in other ways, such as Western Union or bitcoin.
Relative in custody Scammer claims to be the police, and they have your son/daughtenephew/estranged twin in custody. You need to post bail (for some reason in iTunes gift cards or MoneyGram) immediately or the consequences will never be the same.
Mexican family scam
This scam comes in many different flavours, but always involves someone in your family and Mexico. Sometimes the scammer will claim that your family member has been detained, sometimes the scammer will claim that your family member has been kidnapped, and sometimes the scammer will claim that your family member is injured and needs help.
General family scams
Scammers will gather a large amount of information about you and target your family members using different stories with the goal of gettimg them to send money.
One ring scam
Scammers will call you from an international number with the goal of getting you to return their call, causing you to incur expensive calling fees.

Online shopping scams

THE GOLDEN RULE OF ONLINE SHOPPING: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Dropshipping
An ad on reddit or social media sites like Facebook and Instagram offers items at huge discounts or even free (sometimes requiring you to reblog or like their page). They just ask you to pay shipping. The scam: The item will turn out to be very low quality and will take weeks or even months to arrive. Sometimes the item never arrives, and the store disappears or stops responding. The seller drop-ships the item from China. The item may only cost a few dollars, and the Chinese government actually pays for the shipping. You end up paying $10-$15 dollars for a $4 item, with the scammer keeping the profit. If you find one of these scams but really have your heart set on the item, you can find it on AliExpress or another Chinese retailer.
Influencer scams
A user will reach out to you on a social media platform, usually Instagram, and offer you the chance to partner with them and receive a free/discounted product, as long as you pay shipping. This is a different version of the dropshipping scam, and is just a marketing technique to get you to buy their products.
Triangulation fraud
Triangulation fraud occurs when you make a purchase on a site like Amazon or eBay for an item at a lower than market price, and receive an item that was clearly purchased new at full price. The scammer uses a stolen credit card to order your item, while the money from the listing is almost all profit for the scammer.
Instagram influencer scams
Someone will message you on Instagram asking you to promote their products, and offering you a discount code. The items are Chinese junk, and the offer is made to many people at a time.
Cheap Items
Many websites pop up and offer expensive products, including electronics, clothes, watches, sunglasses, and shoes at very low prices. The scam: Some sites are selling cheap knock-offs. Some will just take your money and run. What to do if you think you're involved with this scam: Contact your bank or credit card and dispute the charge. How to avoid: The sites often have every brand-name shoe or fashion item (Air Jordan, Yeezy, Gucci, etc) in stock and often at a discounted price. The site will claim to be an outlet for a major brand or even a specific line or item. The site will have images at the bottom claiming to be Secured by Norton or various official payment processors but not actual links. The site will have poor grammar and a mish-mash of categories. Recently, established websites will get hacked or their domain name jacked and turned into scam stores, meaning the domain name of the store will be completely unrelated to the items they're selling. If the deal sounds too good to be true it probably is. Nobody is offering brand new iPhones or Beats or Nintendo Switches for 75% off.
Cheap Amazon 3rd Party Items
You're on Amazon or maybe just Googling for an item and you see it for an unbelievable price from a third-party seller. You know Amazon has your back so you order it. The scam: One of three things usually happen: 1) The seller marks the items as shipped and sends a fake tracking number. Amazon releases the funds to the seller, and the seller disappears. Amazon ultimately refunds your money. 2) The seller immediately cancels the order and instructs you to re-order the item directly from their website, usually with the guarantee that the order is still protected by Amazon. The seller takes your money and runs. Amazon informs you that they do not offer protection on items sold outside of Amazon and cannot help you. 2) The seller immediately cancels the order and instructs you to instead send payment via an unused Amazon gift card by sending the code on the back via email. Once the seller uses the code, the money on the card is gone and cannot be refunded. How to avoid: These scammers can be identified by looking at their Amazon storefronts. They'll be brand new sellers offering a wide range of items at unbelievable prices. Usually their Amazon names will be gibberish, or a variation on FIRSTNAME.LASTNAME. Occasionally however, established storefronts will be hacked. If the deal is too good to be true its most likely a scam.
Scams on eBay
There are scams on eBay targeting both buyers and sellers. As a seller, you should look out for people who privately message you regarding the order, especially if they ask you to ship to a different address or ask to negotiate via text/email/a messaging service. As a buyer you should look out for new accounts selling in-demand items, established accounts selling in-demand items that they have no previous connection to (you can check their feedback history for a general idea of what they bought/sold in the past), and lookout for people who ask you to go off eBay and use another service to complete the transaction. In many cases you will receive a fake tracking number and your money will be help up for up to a month.
Scams on Amazon
There are scams on Amazon targeting both buyers and sellers. As a seller, you should look out for people who message you about a listing. As a buyer you should look out for listings that have an email address for you to contact the person to complete the transaction, and you should look out for cheap listings of in-demand items.
Scams on Reddit
Reddit accounts are frequently purchased and sold by fraudsters who wish to use the high karma count + the age of the account to scam people on buy/sell subreddits. You need to take precautions and be safe whenever you are making a transaction online.
Computer scams
Virus scam
A popup or other ad will say that you have a virus and you need to follow their advice in order to remove it. They are lying, and either want you to install malware or pay for their software.

Assorted scams

Chinese Brushing / direct shipping
If you have ever received an unsolicited small package from China, your address was used to brush. Vendors place fake orders for their own products and send out the orders so that they can increase their ratings.
Money flipping
Scammer claims to be a banking insider who can double/triple/bazoople any amount of money you send them, with no consequences of any kind. Obviously, the money disappears into their wallet the moment you send it.

Door to door scams

As a general rule, you should not engage with door to door salesmen. If you are interested in the product they are selling, check online first.
Selling Magazines
Someone or a group will come to your door and offer to sell a magazine subscription. Often the subscriptions are not for the duration or price you were told, and the magazines will often have tough or impossible cancellation policies.
Energy sales
Somebody will come to your door claiming to be from an energy company. They will ask to see your current energy bill so that they can see how much you pay. They will then offer you a discount if you sign up with them, and promise to handle everything with your old provider. Some of these scammers will "slam" you, by using your account number that they saw on your bill to switch you to their service without authorization, and some will scam you by charging higher prices than the ones you agreed on.
Security system scams
Scammers will come to your door and ask about your security system, and offer to sell you a new one. These scammers are either selling you overpriced low quality products, or are casing your home for a future burglary.
They ask to enter your home
While trying to sell you whatever, they suddenly need to use your bathroom, or they've been writing against the wall and ask to use your table instead. Or maybe they just moved into the neighborhood and want to see how you decorate for ideas.
They're scoping out you and your place. They want to see what valuables you have, how gullible you are, if you have a security system or dogs, etc.

Street scams

Begging With a Purpose
"I just need a few more dollars for the bus," at the bus station, or "I just need $5 to get some gas," at a gas station. There's also a variation where you will be presented with a reward: "I just need money for a cab to get uptown, but I'll give you sports tickets/money/a date/a priceless vase."
Three Card Monte, Also Known As The Shell Game
Unbeatable. The people you see winning are in on the scam.
Drop and Break
You bump into someone and they drop their phone/glasses/fancy bottle of wine/priceless vase and demand you pay them back. In reality, it's a $2 pair of reading glasses/bottle of three-buck-chuck/tasteful but affordable vase.
CD Sales
You're handed a free CD so you can check out the artist's music. They then ask for your name and immediately write it on the CD. Once they've signed your name, they ask you for money, saying they can't give it to someone else now. Often they use dry erase markers, or cheap CD sleeves. Never use any type of storage device given to you by a random person, as the device can contain malware.
White Van Speaker Scam
You're approached and offered speakers/leather jackets/other luxury goods at a discount. The scammer will have an excuse as to why the price is so low. After you buy them, you'll discover that they are worthless.
iPhone Street Sale
You're approached and shown an iPhone for sale, coming in the box, but it's open and you can see the phone. If you buy the phone, you'll get an iPhone box with no iPhone, just some stones or cheap metal in it to weigh it down.
Buddhist Monk Pendant
A monk in traditional garb approaches you, hands you a gold trinket, and asks for a donation. He holds either a notebook with names and amounts of donation (usually everyone else has donated $5+), or a leaflet with generic info. This is fairly common in NYC, and these guys get aggressive quickly.
Friendship Bracelet Scam More common in western Europe, you're approached by someone selling bracelets. They quickly wrap a loop of fabric around your finger and pull it tight, starting to quickly weave a bracelet. The only way to (easily) get it off your hand is to pay. Leftover sales
This scam involves many different items, but the idea is usually the same: you are approached by someone who claims to have a large amount of excess inventory and offers to sell it to you at a great price. The scammer actually has low quality items and will lie to you about the price/origin of the items.
Dent repair scams
Scammers will approach you in public about a dent in your car and offer to fix it for a low price. Often they will claim that they are mechanics. They will not fix the dent in your car, but they will apply large amounts of wax or other substances to hide the dent while they claim that the substance requires time to harden.
Gold ring/jewelry/valuable item scam
A scammer will "find" a gold ring or other valuable item and offers to sell it to you. The item is fake and you will never see the scammer again.
Distraction theft
One person will approach you and distract you, while their accomplice picks your pockets. The distraction can take many forms, but if you are a tourist and are approached in public, watch closely for people getting close to you.

Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency

Mere pass shares hai, sona chandi hai, tumhare pass kya hai? Mere pass bitcoin hai. Hain, woh to mere pass bhi hai. Aapke pass hai kya ye Bitcoin? Coming back to the blog, our topic for today is ‘Cryptocurrency.’ So, Bitcoin is nothing but a cryptocurrency. A cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency designed to work as a medium of exchange. It a decentralized currency that uses cryptography for security and verification purposes during transactions.
Let us first understand the meaning of currency. Currency is nothing but a medium of exchange for goods and services used in a particular country. Being in India, our currency is Rupees. Consider, you are having an Rs. 2000 rupee note, so what is the value of that Rs. 2000 note? You’ll say, the value is Rs. 2000. Who determines it? Again, you’ll answer, it is determined by the Government of India and it is also duly signed by the Governor. So, the value of that note is Rs. 2000 only.
Now, consider you are having a Bitcoin with you. What is the value of that bitcoin? Oh oh wait, you are describing that value of bitcoin in rupees. That means in order to describe the value of a bitcoin, you need another currency to do so. Also, the value you are describing of a single bitcoin is varying i.e. yesterday the value of a bitcoin was something else, today it is something different and tomorrow again it will change. But, when I was talking about the value of an Rs. 2000 note, its value remained constant i.e. Rs. 2000. It didn’t happen that that value of that Rs. 2000 note was something different yesterday, it is something else today. But that isn’t the case with bitcoin. You need the help of another currency to draw the value of a bitcoin. Then how can you call that a currency?
On the other hand, the value of an Rs. 2000 note is Rs. 2000 and it is authorized by the Government itself and has the sign of the governor on it as well. Every country has a specific authority that authorizes the specific currency and draws a specific value of that currency of their particular country.
But, when it comes to bitcoin, I have a question to ask. What is the value of that bitcoin? Who authorizes that bitcoin? There’s nobody. Toh jao pehle uss insan ka sign leke aao jisne bitcoin ko value di hai. Thus, it means that bitcoin has no value as such. In order to derive its value, bitcoin needs the support of another currency.
Talking about gold, if I ask the value of 1 gm of gold, you require another currency to derive the value of gold as well. Now, the availability of gold is scarce. The same is said for bitcoin as well. Gold is extracted from mines. Similarly, bitcoin too is extracted from mines. Now, some people will start thinking bitcoin is similar to gold. Not true at all. Gold is formed by nature and God, we cannot replicate it. Whereas, bitcoin is found and made by the man himself. We can make as many cryptocurrencies as we want, but we cannot make another gold.
Thus, it means that cryptocurrency as such doesn’t carry any value of its own. But, the block-chain technology that is used here in the future of the world. Let us understand what blockchain technology is all about. If 1000 people are a part of the chain and a transaction between 2 people takes place there, then there will be an entry in the books of the rest 998 people as well to serve as a purpose of record. In this manner, even without the involvement of a third party, successful record-keeping is maintained. This is a great innovation.
Still, what is more, important to note is that cryptocurrency in itself has no such value of its own. Most of you’ll think that if bitcoin has no value, then why were behind going crazy behind it? The answer to this is, just because its price was rising high, people were getting behind it. People had the misconception that the ones having more bitcoins will be the richest person alive. And the ones not having the bitcoin felt as if they are poor just because of the fact that they didn’t own the bitcoin.
So just to be socially fit meaning that out of the fear that others own bitcoin while I don’t, hence people bought those bitcoins. Thus, a bubble of bitcoin was created and which eventually busted and the price of bitcoin started falling. Due to this, too many people suffered losses.
It is important to note that in India, dealing or trading in any form of cryptocurrency is illegal. Only the price of the bitcoin was going up but there was no such value to it. The famous poet ‘Oscar Wilde’ has quoted right, “People know the price of everything but the value of nothing.”
Talking about Cryptocurrency, even Warren Buffet refused has to find any value to it. If we go to the share market, we can find shares that are associated with their respective companies, hence, it is possible to gauge its value. So, whenever you plan to invest in something always make sure to analyze the pros and cons of it.
Until our next blog…

8 times of online appreciation, only GFS will rise in 2020

8 times of online appreciation, only GFS will rise in 2020

https://preview.redd.it/dftun04vml451.png?width=724&format=png&auto=webp&s=f0c667cbc5d0de39f0bf113e9941b0c7f9cb072f
GFS over 8 times in two weeks!
With the continuous improvement of blockchain technology status, digital currency is being sought after by investors, bitcoin, Ethereum and other major mainstream currencies are rising, the certificate GFS of Forbes, the blockchain 4.0 cross chain protocol system, has also broken by $0.8, and the GFS online has increased by more than 8 times in less than two weeks, becoming the best investment target worthy of 2020!
■ global financial market downturn, digital currency is good
The financial market in 2020 can be described as double hot and cold days, with a sudden outbreak of a new crown epidemic and frequent black swans. In March, the U.S. stock market fused four times in 10 days, the Brazilian stock index fused, the Canadian S & P / TSX stock index fused, the crude oil futures fell to a negative number, and the panic of investors spread in the financial markets of various countries.
On the other hand, through a series of major events such as the Fed's interest rate cut, the global outbreak, and the stock market circuit breaker, the risk aversion of digital currency is becoming more and more obvious. In terms of supervision, under the favorable national policies of the United States, Singapore, Japan, India and other countries, the digital currency is being sought after by investors.
■ GFS up to 800%, or the first 100 times in 2020
All of the above have laid the foundation for a new round of bull market of digital currency, with major mainstream currencies rising one after another. In 2020, the well deserved king of digital assets is cross chain commercial blockchain Forbes, whose token GFS has been online for less than two weeks, has risen more than eight times, surpassing all mainstream digital assets.
The rise of GFS is nothing more than normal. A good digital asset, in addition to having excellent technology, its blockchain itself must solve practical problems, as an incentive means of digital assets to have value. Bitcoin provides a secure and stable decentralized bookkeeping system, while BTC, as the digital asset of bitcoin blockchain, is used as bookkeeping fee, so BTC can be the number one in digital currency. BTC has a stable use and use scenario, and the rise is natural.
■ Growth Logic of GFS
From a technical point of view, Forbes brings a brand-new blockchain financial ecology, which creates a truly usable cross chain ecology, helps traditional industries, especially the financial industry, realize chain reform, and makes various commercial applications run smoothly on Forbes. The core technology of Forbes is cross chain.
Great projects must have great genes. Forbes is co sponsored by cryptopunk members and some Wall Street practitioners. As we all know, Nakamoto, the initiator of bitcoin, is from cryptopunk forum. In addition, Wikileaks founder Assange is also from cryptopunk. Forbes team recognized that in the current blockchain field, due to the status quo of isolated islands between chains, the blockchain financial business could not be carried out. Cross chain is the top priority.
From the strategic layout shown in the Forbes white paper, GFS clearly has long-term investment value. At present, GFS has created typical applications including: Forbes cross chain protocol, dpoc mining machine, Forbes Global Mining pool, one-stop digital asset storage management wallet Forbes wallet, etc. Any of these combined with the cross chain technology breakthrough of Forbes will give birth to a new and solid landing to realize the benign circulation of GFS in the ecosystem.
In the future, the great ecosystem of blockchain business application will be built on the basis of Forbes, including but not limited to decentralized exchanges, blockchain securities market, supply chain, payment management consumption application, lending, food, clothing, housing and so on.
■ infinite GFS potential, thousands of times of value
At present, the global financial assets have encountered black swan, and the overall market is relatively low. However, Forbes' new ecosystem across the region has demonstrated its ability to resist risks. As one of the most anticipated projects in 2020, GFS has obvious advantages over other projects. First of all, GFS is not a one click token. As the fuel consumed in the cross chain process, GFS uses dpoc, a common algorithm for hard disk mining. The total amount is constant 21 million, no additional issue is allowed! No team pre excavation! GFS is 100% mineral currency, and the biggest feature of mineral currency is the anchoring mining cost. For example, the current price of bitcoin is 8500u. A large part of the reason is that the mining machine, power and other costs are 7000u. The digital currency with the support of calculation is really valuable.
Secondly, we should mention the ecological application of GFS. According to the project white paper, GFS's main uses are:
  1. Main chain gas. It's easy to understand that any node transferring money on the GFS blockchain needs to pay gas just like bitcoin, which is a long-term demand. As Forbes blockchain involves cross chain, transfer between main networks is indispensable, and the daily gas fee is absolutely not low.
  2. Cross chain gas, that's great. To initiate cross chain transfer, cross chain transaction and cross chain data transmission on Forbes, the nodes need to pay part of GFS as cross chain gas. Many Xiaobai don't understand the value of cross chain landing. Let's give a random example: the exchange. At present, the exchange is generally centralized, and it needs to pay a handling fee for one purchase and one sale, which is very high (22-55). Therefore, several large domestic exchanges have made a lot of money. However, if the cross chain transaction is decentralized through Forbes' cross chain system, the handling fee only needs to be paid once, and the fee is only 1 / 100 to 1 / 1000 of the current fee, which will bring a revolution to the exchange from abroad. How much revenue will Forbes get from this alone? Let alone the handling fees of financial derivatives such as futures and options. The realization of cross chain is likely to unify the encrypted financial market. Think of Ethereum, because of the creation of smart contracts, the price has doubled 10000 times in five years. How about cross chain GFS? I can't imagine.
  3. DAPP fees, it is self-evident that DAPP will replace the centralized app in the future. The reason why DAPP can't develop now is obvious. It can't cross the chain! Can DAPP over Ethernet be switched to EOS? Can users on both sides use the same set of account books? No, it needs to be solved by Forbes cross chain protocol. Similarly, Forbes charges a small fee for GFS. But in such a large market, there is definitely a lot of money.
  4. In addition to the application of GFS, the mining pool has the function of early securities pass, that is, holding GFS would like to have the mining pool income dividend, what is the point? Bitcoin. At present, the number one digital asset is a solid hard currency.

https://preview.redd.it/p56gxe2fnl451.png?width=1307&format=png&auto=webp&s=c2dde5f4df4dca8a3e98967b8b26538660a034fa
Not to mention the influence of cross chain stable currency kusd and the high-speed growth brought by the small amount of circulation in the early stage of the project. Forbes will land on at least 10 secondary market exchanges in 2020, according to officials. In 2021, it will be listed in one of the three exchanges. At present, one of the three exchanges has reached in-depth cooperation with Forbes. The global ecosystem on the chain, as well as the real industry in the distribution, have become the support of GFS value. Therefore, GFS currently shows a far higher yield than other currencies. According to the professional estimates of rating agencies, the growth rate of GFS this year is about 180 - 900 times.
It is worth noting that, according to the latest official news, the Forbes miner alliance plan has been launched. In the early nodes, Forbes mining pool can be set up, free participation in computing lease, zero cost mining and GFS reward can be obtained. It only needs to mortgage a certain amount of deposit, and the deposit is returned through the smart contract every day, and the income of 2.8 times the amount of deposit is obtained. To form a group of miners, you can also get corresponding recommendation rewards.
Within two weeks after the launch, it has soared more than 8 times, representing that Forbes cooperative enterprises and communities are all optimistic about its future performance. In fact, Forbes technology has been highly recognized by global communities, nodes, global mining pools and head exchanges. The popularity of Forbes is expanding step by step. Forbes has ignited the enthusiasm of the community and investors. The liquidity in the ecosystem is developing well, and its value is expected to be thousands of times.

2020, Forbes, only up!

With Global Asset Depreciation, Bitcoin ETF Become The Best Safe-Haven Assets

With Global Asset Depreciation, Bitcoin ETF Become The Best Safe-Haven Assets

https://preview.redd.it/zdgzzpkvbhy41.png?width=810&format=png&auto=webp&s=2ddb85159f8bc3a29f7f58f7bf4062e39fda1b5f
Since the COVID-19 epidemic has caused tremendous damage to the world, not only to life safety and public health but also to the global economy and financial markets. According to the IMF's latest forecast, the global economy may shrink by more than 3% in 2020. Among them, developed countries will generally experience negative growth, while China and India may only be able to maintain normal growth.
Facing this such a large scale of disaster which much more grievous than any economic crisis happened in history, the issuance of government bonds and the printing of money by the central bank are the most common ways to help the troubled laborers and enterprises. The United States has issued three rounds of fiscal stimulus policies. The total stimulus scale exceeds 2.1 trillion US dollars, and the fourth round of 484 billion US dollars of stimulus is about to be launched. These four rounds of quantitative easing will reach 2.6 trillion US dollars, accounting for about 19 years of US GDP 12%. This is an appalling number, equivalent to an 8.9% discount to everyone's wealth.

https://preview.redd.it/jgoeadjybhy41.png?width=846&format=png&auto=webp&s=a95cc678c72c384c7949e19379f2a47f84fb8714
In China, the release volume of central banks will only greater than the United States, which is about 50% higher. The release by the United States is shared by people all over the world. Since the RMB has not yet completed its global currency mission, most of China's releasing is undertaken by the Chinese people. In other words, when the United States releasing, the Chinese people will bear part of it. When China releasing, the Chinese people will bear most of it, which results that wealth will be discounted. It is imperative to give up holding cash and find a safe investment channel and high-quality safe-haven assets.
Traditional safe-haven investment assets include treasury bonds, gold, etc. However, this financial crisis is on the upswing, and traditional safe-haven assets are no longer sufficient to ensure that assets do not depreciate. Bitoffer analyst Lucian believes that the Bitcoin ETF fund may be the best safe-haven asset at this stage.
First of all, Bitcoin is known as "digital gold", and Bitcoins are operating in a decentralized blockchain network, and they are almost impossible to lose (unless you forget your private key), which is safer than gold hidden in a safe box at home; secondly, Bitcoin itself is easy to carry and can be used for payment with more versatile than gold. On the one hand, it is the storage function of digital gold, on the other hand, it has the payment and circulation function of currency. What is rarer is that the price of Bitcoin is seriously underestimated, and it will continue to rise in the future.

The Bitcoin ETF fund is the best tool that can amplify Bitcoin's earnings. Why do you say that? Although futures can also amplify Bitcoin gains, they are prone to liquidation. Once the price volatility is large, future liquidation will make investors lose a lot. While Bitcoin ETF funds are not the same. Through the dynamic adjustment mechanism, ETF funds do not have the risk of liquidation, and through the continuous increase of the fund's net value, they can also continue to use earnings to earn income again with at least 3 times, up to 17 times profits.
For example, when using $10000 to purchase a Bitcoin, when the price doubled, your profits will also be doubled. While without the risk of liquidation, ETF funds can make at least 3X, up to 17X profits, which means when Bitcoin rises $10000, ETF will earn the highest $17000 as profits.

/r/Scams Common Scam Master Post

Hello visitors and subscribers of scams! Here you will find a master list of common (and uncommon) scams that you may encounter online or in real life. Thank you to the many contributors who helped create this thread!

If you know of a scam that is not covered here, write a comment and it will be added to the next edition.

Previous threads: https://old.reddit.com/Scams/search?q=common+scams+master+post&restrict_sr=on
Blackmail email scam thread: https://reddit.com/Scams/comments/dohaea/the_blackmail_email_scam_part_4/
Some of these articles are from small, local publications and refer to the scam happening in a specific area. Do not think that this means that the scam won't happen in your area.

Spoofing

Caller ID spoofing
It is very easy for anyone to make a phone call while having any number show up on the caller ID of the person receiving the phone call. Receiving a phone call from a certain number does not mean that the person/company who owns that number has actually called you.
Email spoofing
The "from" field of an email can be set by the sender, meaning that you can receive scam emails that look like they are from legitimate addresses. It's important to never click links in emails unless absolutely necessary, for example a password reset link you requested or an account activation link for an account you created.
SMS spoofing
SMS messages can be spoofed, so be wary of messages that seem to be from your friends or other trusted people.

The most common scams

The fake check scam (Credit to nimble2 for this part)
The fake check scam arises from many different situations (for instance, you applied for a job, or you are selling something on a place like Craigslist, or someone wants to purchase goods or services from your business, or you were offered a job as a mystery shopper, you were asked to wrap your car with an advertisement, or you received a check in the mail for no reason), but the bottom line is always something like this:
General fraudulent funds scams If somebody is asking you to accept and send out money as a favour or as part of a job, it is a fraudulent funds scam. It does not matter how they pay you, any payment on any service can be fraudulent and will be reversed when it is discovered to be fraudulent.
Phone verification code scams Someone will ask you to receive a verification text and then tell you to give them the code. Usually the code will come from Google Voice, or from Craigslist. In the Google version of the scam, your phone number will be used to verify a Google Voice account that the scammer will use to scam people with. In the Craigslist version of the scam, your phone number will be used to verify a Craigslist posting that the scammer will use to scam people. There is also an account takeover version of this scam that will involve the scammer sending a password reset token to your phone number and asking you for it.
Bitcoin job scams
Bitcoin job scams involve some sort of fraudulent funds transfer, usually a fake check although a fraudulent bank transfer can be used as well. The scammer will send you the fraudulent money and ask you to purchase bitcoins. This is a scam, and you will have zero recourse after you send the scammer bitcoins.
Email flooding
If you suddenly receive hundreds or thousands of spam emails, usually subscription confirmations, it's very likely that one of your online accounts has been taken over and is being used fraudulently. You should check any of your accounts that has a credit card linked to it, preferably from a computer other than the one you normally use. You should change all of your passwords to unique passwords and you should start using two factor authentication everywhere.
Boss/CEO scam A scammer will impersonate your boss or someone who works at your company and will ask you to run an errand for them, which will usually be purchasing gift cards and sending them the code. Once the scammer has the code, you have no recourse.
Employment certification scams
You will receive a job offer that is dependent on you completing a course or receiving a certification from a company the scammer tells you about. The scammer operates both websites and the job does not exist.
Craigslist fake payment scams
Scammers will ask you about your item that you have listed for sale on a site like Craigslist, and will ask to pay you via Paypal. They are scamming you, and the payment in most cases does not actually exist, the email you received was sent by the scammers. In cases where you have received a payment, the scammer can dispute the payment or the payment may be entirely fraudulent. The scammer will then either try to get you to send money to them using the fake funds that they did not send to you, or will ask you to ship the item, usually to a re-shipping facility or a parcel mule.
General fraudulent funds scams The fake check scam is not the only scam that involves accepting fraudulent/fake funds and purchasing items for scammers. If your job or opportunity involves accepting money and then using that money, it is almost certainly a frauduent funds scam. Even if the payment is through a bank transfer, Paypal, Venmo, Zelle, Interac e-Transfer, etc, it does not matter.
Credit card debt scam
Fraudsters will offer to pay off your bills, and will do so with fraudulent funds. Sometimes it will be your credit card bill, but it can be any bill that can be paid online. Once they pay it off, they will ask you to send them money or purchase items for them. The fraudulent transaction will be reversed in the future and you will never be able to keep the money. This scam happens on sites like Craigslist, Twitter, Instagram, and also some dating sites, including SeekingArrangement.
The parcel mule scam
A scammer will contact you with a job opportunity that involves accepting and reshipping packages. The packages are either stolen or fraudulently obtained items, and you will not be paid by the scammer. Here is a news article about a scam victim who fell for this scam and reshipped over 20 packages containing fraudulently acquired goods.
The Skype sex scam
You're on Facebook and you get a friend request from a cute girl you've never met. She wants to start sexting and trading nudes. She'll ask you to send pictures or videos or get on webcam where she can see you naked with your face in the picture. The scam: There's no girl. You've sent nudes to a guy pretending to be a girl. As soon as he has the pictures he'll demand money and threaten to send the pictures to your friends and family. Sometimes the scammer will upload the video to a porn site or Youtube to show that they are serious.
What to do if you are a victim of this scam: You cannot buy silence, you can only rent it. Paying the blackmailer will show them that the information they have is valuable and they will come after you for more money. Let your friends and family know that you were scammed and tell them to ignore friend requests or messages from people they don't know. Also, make sure your privacy settings are locked down and consider deactivating your account.
The underage girl scam
You're on a dating site or app and you get contacted by a cute girl. She wants to start sexting and trading nudes. Eventually she stops communicating and you get a call from a pissed off guy claiming to be the girl's father, or a police officer, or a private investigator, or something else along those lines. Turns out the girl you were sexting is underage, and her parents want some money for various reasons, such as to pay for a new phone, to pay for therapy, etc. There is, of course, no girl. You were communicating with a scammer.
What to do if you are a victim of this scam: Stop picking up the phone when the scammers call. Do not pay them, or they will be after you for more money.
Phishing
Phishing is when a scammer tries to trick you into giving information to them, such as your password or private financial information. Phishing messages will usually look very similar to official messages, and sometimes they are identical. If you are ever required to login to a different account in order to use a service, you should be incredibly cautious.
The blackmail email scam The exact wording of the emails varies, but there are generally four main parts. They claim to have placed software/malware on a porn/adult video site, they claim to have a video of you masturbating or watching porn, they threaten to release the video to your friends/family/loved ones/boss/dog, and they demand that you pay them in order for them to delete the video. Rest assured that this is a very common spam campaign and there is no truth behind the email or the threats. Here are some news articles about this scam.
The blackmail mail scam
This is very similar to the blackmail email scam, but you will receive a letter in the mail.
Rental scams Usually on local sites like Craigslist, scammers will steal photos from legitimate real estate listings and will list them for rent at or below market rate. They will generally be hesitant to tell you the address of the property for "safety reasons" and you will not be able to see the unit. They will then ask you to pay them a deposit and they claim they will ship you the keys. In reality, your money is gone and you will have no recourse.
Craigslist vehicle scams A scammer will list a vehicle on Craigslist and will offer to ship you the car. In many cases they will also falsely claim to sell you the car through eBay or Amazon. If you are looking for a car on Craigslist and the seller says anything about shipping the car, having an agent, gives you a long story about why they are selling the car, or the listing price is far too low, you are talking to a scammer and you should ignore and move on.
Advance-fee scam, also known as the 419 scam, or the Nigerian prince scam. You will receive a communication from someone who claims that you are entitled to a large sum of money, or you can help them obtain a large sum of money. However, they will need money from you before you receive the large sum.
Man in the middle scams
Man in the middle scams are very common and very hard to detect. The scammer will impersonate a company or person you are legitimately doing business with, and they will ask you to send the money to one of their own bank accounts or one controlled by a money mule. They have gained access to the legitimate persons email address, so there will be nothing suspicious about the email. To prevent this, make contact in a different way that lets you verify that the person you are talking to is the person you think you are talking to.
Cam girl voting/viewer scam
You will encounter a "cam girl" on a dating/messaging/social media/whatever site/app, and the scammer will ask you to go to their site and sign up with your credit card. They may offer a free show, or ask you to vote for them, or any number of other fake stories.
Amateur porn recruitment scam
You will encounter a "pornstar" on a dating/messaging/social media/whatever site/app, and the scammer will ask you to create an adult film with hehim, but first you need to do something. The story here is usually something to do with verifying your age, or you needing to take an STD test that involves sending money to a site operated by the scammer.
Hot girl SMS spam
You receive a text from a random number with a message along the lines of "Hey babe I'm here in town again if you wanted to meet up this time, are you around?" accompanied by a NSFW picture of a hot girl. It's spam, and they'll direct you to their scam website that requires a credit card.
Identity verification scam
You will encounter someone on a dating/messaging/social media/whatever site/app, and the scammer will ask that you verify your identity as they are worried about catfishing. The scammer operates the site, and you are not talking to whoever you think you are talking to.
This type of scam teases you with something, then tries to make you sign up for something else that costs money. The company involved is often innocent, but they turn a blind eye to the practice as it helps their bottom line, even if they have to occasionally issue refunds. A common variation takes place on dating sites/dating apps, where you will match with someone who claims to be a camgirl who wants you to sign up for a site and vote for her. Another variation takes place on local sites like Craigslist, where the scammers setup fake rental scams and demand that you go through a specific service for a credit check. Once you go through with it, the scammer will stop talking to you. Another variation also takes place on local sites like Craigslist, where scammers will contact you while you are selling a car and will ask you to purchase a Carfax-like report from a specific website.
Multi Level Marketing or Affiliate Marketing
You apply for a vague job listing for 'sales' on craigslist. Or maybe an old friend from high school adds you on Facebook and says they have an amazing business opportunity for you. Or maybe the well dressed guy who's always interviewing people in the Starbucks that you work at asks if you really want to be slinging coffee the rest of your life. The scam: MLMs are little more than pyramid schemes. They involve buying some sort of product (usually snake oil health products like body wraps or supplements) and shilling them to your friends and family. They claim that the really money is recruiting people underneath you who give you a slice of whatever they sell. And if those people underneath you recruit more people, you get a piece of their sales. Ideally if you big enough pyramid underneath you the money will roll in without any work on your part. Failure to see any profit will be your fault for not "wanting it enough." The companies will claim that you need to buy their extra training modules or webinars to really start selling. But in reality, the vast majority of people who buy into a MLM won't see a cent. At the end of the day all you'll be doing is annoying your friends and family with your constant recruitment efforts. What to look out for: Recruiters love to be vague. They won't tell you the name of the company or what exactly the job will entail. They'll pump you up with promises of "self-generating income", "being your own boss", and "owning your own company." They might ask you to read books about success and entrepreneurs. They're hoping you buy into the dream first. If you get approached via social media, check their timelines. MLMs will often instruct their victims to pretend that they've already made it. They'll constantly post about how they're hustling and making the big bucks and linking to youtube videos about success. Again, all very vague about what their job actually entails. If you think you're being recruited: Ask them what exactly the job is. If they can't answer its probably a MLM. Just walk away.

Phone scams

You should generally avoid answering or engaging with random phone calls. Picking up and engaging with a scam call tells the scammers that your phone number is active, and will usually lead to more calls.
Tax Call
You get a call from somebody claiming to be from your countries tax agency. They say you have unpaid taxes that need to be paid immediately, and you may be arrested or have other legal action taken against you if it is not paid. This scam has caused the American IRS, Canadian CRA, British HMRC, and Australian Tax Office to issue warnings. This scam happens in a wide variety of countries all over the world.
Warrant Call
Very similar to the tax call. You'll get a phone call from an "agent", "officer", "sheriff", or other law enforcement officer claiming that there is a warrant out for your arrest and you will be arrested very soon. They will then offer to settle everything for a fee, usually paid in giftcards.
[Legal Documents/Process Server Calls]
Very similar to the warrant call. You'll get a phone call from a scammer claiming that they are going to serve you legal documents, and they will threaten you with legal consequences if you refuse to comply. They may call themselves "investigators", and will sometimes give you a fake case number.
Student Loan Forgiveness Scam
Scammers will call you and tell you about a student loan forgiveness program, but they are interested in obtaining private information about you or demanding money in order to join the fake program.
Tech Support Call You receive a call from someone with a heavy accent claiming to be a technician Microsoft or your ISP. They inform you that your PC has a virus and your online banking and other accounts may be compromised if the virus is not removed. They'll have you type in commands and view diagnostics on your PC which shows proof of the virus. Then they'll have you install remote support software so the technician can work on your PC, remove the virus, and install security software. The cost of the labor and software can be hundreds of dollars. The scam: There's no virus. The technician isn't a technician and does not work for Microsoft or your ISP. Scammers (primarily out of India) use autodialers to cold-call everyone in the US. Any file they point out to you or command they have you run is completely benign. The software they sell you is either freeware or ineffective. What to do you if you're involved with this scam: If the scammers are remotely on your computer as you read this, turn off your PC or laptop via the power button immediately, and then if possible unplug your internet connection. Some of the more vindictive tech scammers have been known to create boot passwords on your computer if they think you've become wise to them and aren't going to pay up. Hang up on the scammers, block the number, and ignore any threats about payment. Performing a system restore on your PC is usually all that is required to remove the scammer's common remote access software. Reports of identity theft from fake tech calls are uncommon, but it would still be a good idea to change your passwords for online banking and monitor your accounts for any possible fraud. How to avoid: Ignore any calls claiming that your PC has a virus. Microsoft will never contact you. If you're unsure if a call claiming to be from your ISP is legit, hang up, and then dial the customer support number listed on a recent bill. If you have elderly relatives or family that isn't tech savvy, take the time to fill them in on this scam.
Chinese government scam
This scam is aimed at Chinese people living in Europe and North America, and involves a voicemail from someone claiming to be associated with the Chinese government, usually through the Chinese consulate/embassy, who is threatening legal action or making general threats.
Chinese shipping scam
This scam is similar to the Chinese government scam, but involves a seized/suspicious package, and the scammers will connect the victim to other scammers posing as Chinese government investigators.
Social security suspension scam
You will receive a call from someone claiming to work for the government regarding suspicious activity, fraud, or serious crimes connected to your social security number. You'll be asked to speak to an operator and the operator will explain the steps you need to follow in order to fix the problems. It's all a scam, and will lead to you losing money and could lead to identity theft if you give them private financial information.
Utilities cutoff
You get a call from someone who claims that they are from your utility company, and they claim that your utilities will be shut off unless you immediately pay. The scammer will usually ask for payment via gift cards, although they may ask for payment in other ways, such as Western Union or bitcoin.
Relative in custody Scammer claims to be the police, and they have your son/daughtenephew/estranged twin in custody. You need to post bail (for some reason in iTunes gift cards or MoneyGram) immediately or the consequences will never be the same.
Mexican family scam
This scam comes in many different flavours, but always involves someone in your family and Mexico. Sometimes the scammer will claim that your family member has been detained, sometimes the scammer will claim that your family member has been kidnapped, and sometimes the scammer will claim that your family member is injured and needs help.
General family scams
Scammers will gather a large amount of information about you and target your family members using different stories with the goal of gettimg them to send money.
One ring scam
Scammers will call you from an international number with the goal of getting you to return their call, causing you to incur expensive calling fees.

Online shopping scams

THE GOLDEN RULE OF ONLINE SHOPPING: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Dropshipping
An ad on reddit or social media sites like Facebook and Instagram offers items at huge discounts or even free (sometimes requiring you to reblog or like their page). They just ask you to pay shipping. The scam: The item will turn out to be very low quality and will take weeks or even months to arrive. Sometimes the item never arrives, and the store disappears or stops responding. The seller drop-ships the item from China. The item may only cost a few dollars, and the Chinese government actually pays for the shipping. You end up paying $10-$15 dollars for a $4 item, with the scammer keeping the profit. If you find one of these scams but really have your heart set on the item, you can find it on AliExpress or another Chinese retailer.
Influencer scams
A user will reach out to you on a social media platform, usually Instagram, and offer you the chance to partner with them and receive a free/discounted product, as long as you pay shipping. This is a different version of the dropshipping scam, and is just a marketing technique to get you to buy their products.
Triangulation fraud
Triangulation fraud occurs when you make a purchase on a site like Amazon or eBay for an item at a lower than market price, and receive an item that was clearly purchased new at full price. The scammer uses a stolen credit card to order your item, while the money from the listing is almost all profit for the scammer.
Instagram influencer scams
Someone will message you on Instagram asking you to promote their products, and offering you a discount code. The items are Chinese junk, and the offer is made to many people at a time.
Cheap Items
Many websites pop up and offer expensive products, including electronics, clothes, watches, sunglasses, and shoes at very low prices. The scam: Some sites are selling cheap knock-offs. Some will just take your money and run. What to do if you think you're involved with this scam: Contact your bank or credit card and dispute the charge. How to avoid: The sites often have every brand-name shoe or fashion item (Air Jordan, Yeezy, Gucci, etc) in stock and often at a discounted price. The site will claim to be an outlet for a major brand or even a specific line or item. The site will have images at the bottom claiming to be Secured by Norton or various official payment processors but not actual links. The site will have poor grammar and a mish-mash of categories. Recently, established websites will get hacked or their domain name jacked and turned into scam stores, meaning the domain name of the store will be completely unrelated to the items they're selling. If the deal sounds too good to be true it probably is. Nobody is offering brand new iPhones or Beats or Nintendo Switches for 75% off.
Cheap Amazon 3rd Party Items
You're on Amazon or maybe just Googling for an item and you see it for an unbelievable price from a third-party seller. You know Amazon has your back so you order it. The scam: One of three things usually happen: 1) The seller marks the items as shipped and sends a fake tracking number. Amazon releases the funds to the seller, and the seller disappears. Amazon ultimately refunds your money. 2) The seller immediately cancels the order and instructs you to re-order the item directly from their website, usually with the guarantee that the order is still protected by Amazon. The seller takes your money and runs. Amazon informs you that they do not offer protection on items sold outside of Amazon and cannot help you. 2) The seller immediately cancels the order and instructs you to instead send payment via an unused Amazon gift card by sending the code on the back via email. Once the seller uses the code, the money on the card is gone and cannot be refunded. How to avoid: These scammers can be identified by looking at their Amazon storefronts. They'll be brand new sellers offering a wide range of items at unbelievable prices. Usually their Amazon names will be gibberish, or a variation on FIRSTNAME.LASTNAME. Occasionally however, established storefronts will be hacked. If the deal is too good to be true its most likely a scam.
Scams on eBay
There are scams on eBay targeting both buyers and sellers. As a seller, you should look out for people who privately message you regarding the order, especially if they ask you to ship to a different address or ask to negotiate via text/email/a messaging service. As a buyer you should look out for new accounts selling in-demand items, established accounts selling in-demand items that they have no previous connection to (you can check their feedback history for a general idea of what they bought/sold in the past), and lookout for people who ask you to go off eBay and use another service to complete the transaction. In many cases you will receive a fake tracking number and your money will be help up for up to a month.
Scams on Amazon
There are scams on Amazon targeting both buyers and sellers. As a seller, you should look out for people who message you about a listing. As a buyer you should look out for listings that have an email address for you to contact the person to complete the transaction, and you should look out for cheap listings of in-demand items.
Scams on Reddit
Reddit accounts are frequently purchased and sold by fraudsters who wish to use the high karma count + the age of the account to scam people on buy/sell subreddits. You need to take precautions and be safe whenever you are making a transaction online.
Computer scams
Virus scam
A popup or other ad will say that you have a virus and you need to follow their advice in order to remove it. They are lying, and either want you to install malware or pay for their software.

Assorted scams

Chinese Brushing / direct shipping
If you have ever received an unsolicited small package from China, your address was used to brush. Vendors place fake orders for their own products and send out the orders so that they can increase their ratings.
Money flipping
Scammer claims to be a banking insider who can double/triple/bazoople any amount of money you send them, with no consequences of any kind. Obviously, the money disappears into their wallet the moment you send it.

Door to door scams

As a general rule, you should not engage with door to door salesmen. If you are interested in the product they are selling, check online first.
Selling Magazines
Someone or a group will come to your door and offer to sell a magazine subscription. Often the subscriptions are not for the duration or price you were told, and the magazines will often have tough or impossible cancellation policies.
Energy sales
Somebody will come to your door claiming to be from an energy company. They will ask to see your current energy bill so that they can see how much you pay. They will then offer you a discount if you sign up with them, and promise to handle everything with your old provider. Some of these scammers will "slam" you, by using your account number that they saw on your bill to switch you to their service without authorization, and some will scam you by charging higher prices than the ones you agreed on.
Security system scams
Scammers will come to your door and ask about your security system, and offer to sell you a new one. These scammers are either selling you overpriced low quality products, or are casing your home for a future burglary.
They ask to enter your home
While trying to sell you whatever, they suddenly need to use your bathroom, or they've been writing against the wall and ask to use your table instead. Or maybe they just moved into the neighborhood and want to see how you decorate for ideas.
They're scoping out you and your place. They want to see what valuables you have, how gullible you are, if you have a security system or dogs, etc.

Street scams

Begging With a Purpose
"I just need a few more dollars for the bus," at the bus station, or "I just need $5 to get some gas," at a gas station. There's also a variation where you will be presented with a reward: "I just need money for a cab to get uptown, but I'll give you sports tickets/money/a date/a priceless vase."
Three Card Monte, Also Known As The Shell Game
Unbeatable. The people you see winning are in on the scam.
Drop and Break
You bump into someone and they drop their phone/glasses/fancy bottle of wine/priceless vase and demand you pay them back. In reality, it's a $2 pair of reading glasses/bottle of three-buck-chuck/tasteful but affordable vase.
CD Sales
You're handed a free CD so you can check out the artist's music. They then ask for your name and immediately write it on the CD. Once they've signed your name, they ask you for money, saying they can't give it to someone else now. Often they use dry erase markers, or cheap CD sleeves. Never use any type of storage device given to you by a random person, as the device can contain malware.
White Van Speaker Scam
You're approached and offered speakers/leather jackets/other luxury goods at a discount. The scammer will have an excuse as to why the price is so low. After you buy them, you'll discover that they are worthless.
iPhone Street Sale
You're approached and shown an iPhone for sale, coming in the box, but it's open and you can see the phone. If you buy the phone, you'll get an iPhone box with no iPhone, just some stones or cheap metal in it to weigh it down.
Buddhist Monk Pendant
A monk in traditional garb approaches you, hands you a gold trinket, and asks for a donation. He holds either a notebook with names and amounts of donation (usually everyone else has donated $5+), or a leaflet with generic info. This is fairly common in NYC, and these guys get aggressive quickly.
Friendship Bracelet Scam More common in western Europe, you're approached by someone selling bracelets. They quickly wrap a loop of fabric around your finger and pull it tight, starting to quickly weave a bracelet. The only way to (easily) get it off your hand is to pay. Leftover sales
This scam involves many different items, but the idea is usually the same: you are approached by someone who claims to have a large amount of excess inventory and offers to sell it to you at a great price. The scammer actually has low quality items and will lie to you about the price/origin of the items.
Dent repair scams
Scammers will approach you in public about a dent in your car and offer to fix it for a low price. Often they will claim that they are mechanics. They will not fix the dent in your car, but they will apply large amounts of wax or other substances to hide the dent while they claim that the substance requires time to harden.
Gold ring/jewelry/valuable item scam
A scammer will "find" a gold ring or other valuable item and offers to sell it to you. The item is fake and you will never see the scammer again.
Distraction theft
One person will approach you and distract you, while their accomplice picks your pockets. The distraction can take many forms, but if you are a tourist and are approached in public, watch closely for people getting close to you.

5 best ways to use a barrel of oil in 2020

https://thestonkmarket.com/5-best-ways-to-use-a-barrel-of-oil-in-2020/
How the mighty have fallen! Or shall one say, how the mighty have gotten hammered by excess supply, depreciated demand and of course a global lock-down of economic activity never before seen in human history. As beautiful as it is that our world has come together to fight for humanity, what does one do with all those excess barrels of oil? Note WTI was priced at $21.21 on March 20, 2020 and is likely to be in the teens in the first week of April. This is no April fool’s Joke.
With the backdrop of an economic devastation beholden upon us and the price of oil dropping to new lows everyday (note, a 77-pack of Natural Light beer now costs more than a barrel of oil) we have come up with five suggestions on what to do with all of this oil you beatniks in the Permian are sitting on.
Here are the top 5 recommendations determined by our in house Stonk Market survey, reviewing the opinions of leading Trading Desks, Market Analysts and leading Industry professionals – on what the hell you should do with all of the damn oil!
One: Build a swimming pool and fill it with oil
Like the notorious Spartans and Romans of past centuries, build a swimming pool and fill the damn thing with oil. Once filled, smear the oil all over oneself – this is incredibly uplifting and pleasurable from personal experience. Furthermore, having an oil filled swimming pool will not only elevate your social status, but it will greatly improve your immune system. An improved immune systems will give you and your beloved family ample pathogens to fight corona, Ebola and any other foreseeable epidemic with the fortitude of Spartan Warriors a like.
Two: Shoot buckshot at oil pipelines
Shooting guns has always been one of my favorite family activities. I remember shooting clay pigeons with my drunk uncles on Thanksgiving evening. These days I view shooting clay pigeons as a ‘caveman’ occupation. The thing all high society individuals shoot now is oil pipelines. Oil pipelines can provide the perfect buckshot practice. Just don’t give the wife the gun for too long otherwise one may meet the Angel Gabriel sooner than intended. No, seriously, experts highly recommend to not allow the wife to handle firearms. Nonetheless, shooting oil pipelines with buckshot teaches children and important lesson of both self-defense and taking responsibility for ones actions and the environment. Shooting oil and gas pipelines with buckshot, as advocated by leading Keynesian Economists, will result in increased demand for oil and gas pipeline infrastructure. Furthermore, if you shoot enough pipelines the draw down of oil will lead to a rapid reversal of pricing. If only every Patriotic citizen would take up arms in this fashion, then oil prices will rise again to levels high enough to keep companies producing. This would be a win for my portfolio!
Three: Hand Sanitizer
According to me and maybe leading healthcare practitioners based in the slums of India, the health benefits of raw crude oil cannot be stated enough. Evidence strongly shows that viruses cannot survive in in oil and thus is the perfect sterilizer. If you don’t believe me just ask the guy down in the Gulf of Mexico. Thanks to BP, nobody these days is chirping about any virus illness or needing to see those doctors. You can even ask the sea turtles BP dumped that oil on. Sure the turtles might be dead, but they sure as hell are not sick!
Four: The New Strip Club Brothel Model
Although our readers are conservative, principled, god fearing family oriented men and women, the American dream will not allow one to shy away from the all mighty dollar. The New Strip Club Brothel Model will have crude dripping everywhere – from the ceiling – to the floor – to the sweat right down my draws. Given the impact of shows like Tiger King, even oil dripping all over male strippers is a flawless business model. Strippers covered in highly quality liquid gold will have everybody flocking to your establishment because it is 100% safe and clean (see reason three how oil is sterile and wonderful). We know what you are thinking, “how do I get my hands on a crude oil covered stripper?” Worry not, The Stonk Market is here and happy to offer our valued readers access to both oil traders and pimps who will get you access to the black gold and girls (guys too if that suites your taste).
Five: Deliberately Spill Oil on Virginal Lands to Profit
Do you like making quick and easy money? I know do. One of the best get rich quick schemes known to man (outside of joining a Tim Sykes program) is to deliberately spill oil on virginal lands. Not only will an oil spilled land yield the land owner bail out money from the oil industry, but there are EPA environmental rehabilitation funds that will pay you, as the land owner, trillions of dollars in bitcoin! As of note, the Federal Government is said to allocate over $5,000 trillion bitcoins to mid and small cap oil and gas companies during an “accidental” oil spill. This is free money son!
For any assistance in filling your Oil and Gas Bailout Paperwork, please feel free to contact us at The Stonks Market, we are here for you.
Actually we are not here for you. You mean nothing to us.

Why mass adoption happened for signal private messenger & not Monero (or bitcoin)

Signal has taken coordinating illicit drug transactions by storm. If you dont believe me, sync your contacts in signal and see what type of person is using it.
I recently did an "experiment" by wearing a personally made T shirt with the Signal logo on of to a crowded bar during our cities fair. Several people talked to me not about encryption but rather that is the same app they use to talk to their weed dealer. Some mentioned wickr, which I tried to educate on meta data and the importance of FOSS. I'm a bit of a buzzkill.
The adoption of signal shows that people are paranoid, cautious and want to be private: well at least those who are casual drug users.
So why did signal see so much adoption but Monero has seen none at all within the same scene which desires privacy?
Put simply: cash still works just fine, and is easier.
A drug buyer, perhaps a construction worker, gets paid in cash for their over time, they pay a drug dealer in cash, the dealer uses that money to buy food and some luxury items: never recording it on his taxes. His legitimate income is used to pay rent and utilities. Perhaps the drug dealer sends cash by mail to a supplier of a resource he consumes for his dealings. That supplier uses it to pay his workers under the table. Maybe these people use that money to buy some locally produced quail eggs, which the farmer pockets.
All is fine, there is no significant transaction delay, except for maybe a day or two if its sent via mail for an online purchase. It cant be traced easily, its accepted and used by far more people and the price is stable.
Where is the need for Monero? Especially a Monero that is under developed for escrow via easy to use multisig transactions? Certainly those would be useful for those online payments the dealer makes to purchase a resource.
Monero is a back up plan to cash: when we become a cashless society due to cash either being outright outlawed or deemed suspicious for nefarious activities, then Monero will see adoption. Wapecoally when it gets a proper multisig setup for online or otherwise low trust transactions.
Bitcoin has even less of a use case. Everything now is just speculation with a few demonized people on the darknet flirting with using it for dealing drugs.
Signal is useful now because everyone knows, on some, perhaps naive, level that the government could shift through unencrypted messages and construct evidence or reason to pull them over. There is no "cash" option to coordinate when not in person.
I think if your in Monero to get rich, or any cryptocurrency, you'll be disappointed until cash is outlawed in many countries. India seems to be the first headed in this direction. yes the price will rise and fall and you can make money that way, but no real adoption will occur until cash is outlawed and it's the next best thing.
If you are in Monero because you're a bit of a libertarian/anarchist who wants to support and build tools that make it too costly to profitably target valuable victims or exploit others.. then you are in luck. Monero or Monero like currency is the future and the second line of defense against traceable transactions, the first being cash.
And once (if) it takes hold, it is doubly nice as it is a great line of defense against inflationary currency, and the despots who control the inflationary currencies.
Bitcoin has zero chance of this path to adoption as it will never provide the privacy/fungible benefits cash or Monero does as it cannot be fungible: you'll always be suspicious if you obfuscate your transactions.
/slightly drunk, haven't posted in a while and just wanted to post some ideas I've been sitting on/observing for a while.
Everyone should use signal btw. It's not perfect, it's not decentralized but it has ushered in cyberpunk/cryptoanarchy in mass better then any technology thus far.

Morning Prepper

U.S. stock futures rise, following gains in most equities markets around the world, amid optimism that the coronavirus curve is flattening. Dow futures advance 1.3%, Nasdaq gains 1.5% and S&P futures rise 1.2%. The 10-year Treasury yield remains flat at 0.75%. In overseas markets, the Stoxx Europe 600 rises 0.9% and the DAX gains 1.1%. In Asia, markets also ended the session in the green - the Hang Seng rose 0.6%, China’s CSI 300 rose 1.9% and the Nikkei 225 increased 3.1%. In the U.S., Q1 earnings season kicks off with JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM), Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) and Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ). With most of the coronavirus-related restrictions not taking effect until mid-March, investors will be focusing on any forward-looking commentary.
China’s trade isn’t out of the woods yet
Though the world’s second-largest economy recorded a trade surplus of $18.5B in March, vs. a deficit of $7.1B in the first two months of the year, China will now be facing lower demand from the countries it exports to. "Uncertainties are on the rise and China’s foreign trade is encountering bigger difficulties," said Li Kuiwen, a customs spokesperson. Still, investors cheered the economic news. China’s CSI 300 Index closed up 1.9% and Japan’s Nikkei Index gained 3.1%. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng rose 0.5%.
Airline relief deal nears the finish line
Airline industry officials expect all major airlines to accept the terms for grants, with some announcements expected as early as today. The government has set identical terms for industry players and says it won't negotiate individually with airline managements. Those terms include a requirement that 30% of the funds allotted to each airline be repaid and the issuance of warrants with prices already locked in. The Treasury Department is not demanding compensation from small carriers receiving $100M or less in payroll support. If the $25B in grants is allotted as expected, the government could end up owning about 3.0% of American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL), 2.3% of United Airlines (NASDAQ:UAL), 1.3% of JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU), 1% of Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) and 0.6% of Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV).
Tesla pursues rent reductions amid pandemic
Facing the need for cost savings amid the global pandemic, Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is approaching landlords in search of reduced rent, the WSJ reports. "As a result of the increasing restrictions on our ability to conduct business, we would like to inform you that we will be reducing our monthly rent obligations effective immediately," reads one email the company sent. The news follows last week's announcement that Tesla would slash pay and furlough employees who couldn't work from home. Go deeper: Look at Tesla’s balance sheet.
India extends 1.3B-person lockdown until May 3
As widely expected, India is extending the world's biggest pandemic lockdown at least until May 3. The country's restrictions were set to end today, even as its confirmed case count crossed 10,000 and deaths hit 339 (low numbers compared to harder-hit countries, which experts caution may be due to low testing levels). Despite the extension of the restrictions, India has expressed an interest in at least partially restarting its manufacturing industry now rather than later.
The case for India investments weakens
The country’s economy was already weakening when the coronavirus hit, giving investors fewer reasons to buy Indian stocks and bonds, said BlackRock’s head of Asian credit, Neeraj Seth. "India entered the whole situation of COVID on a weaker footing," and the lockdown has put more pressure on the banking system, he told CNBC. BlackRock is cautious on Indian credit at the lower end of the spectrum, but fixed income investments could benefit as India’s central bank is expected to cut interest rates, he said. Go deeper: Check ETF performance by country.
Exxon taps bond market for second time in a month
The oil giant raised $9.5B in debt on Monday, less than a month after issuing $8.5B, as it seeks to bolster its finances while the market is still receptive to issuers of new debt. In the latest offering, Exxon (NYSE:XOM) sold five different bonds with durations ranging from five to 31 years. The issue highlighted investor demand for the debt, as the offering was upsized from the $9B issue originally planned and Exxon was able to borrow at a lower price than the March deal. Go deeper: Look into Exxon’s financials.
What else is happening...
Fed launches commercial paper funding facility today.
DOJ puts the heat on British American Tobacco (NYSE:BTI).
Disney (NYSE:DIS) enters new $5B credit agreement.
Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) early Q1 numbers show growth turn.
Navistar (NYSE:NAV) conserves cash.

[Today's market analysis]
Bitcoin (BTC)BTC has risen slightly since the early hours of this morning, and it rose to a maximum of 6890 USDT at about 1 o'clock, and then retreated slightly. It fell to 6835 USDT at about 4:30, and it is now oscillating within a narrow range around 6870 USDT. Most mainstream currencies followed the consolidation and fell slightly after rising in the early hours. BTC is currently reported at 6888.05 USDT at LOEx Global, with a 0.23% decline in the day.
It oscillates between the support level and the pressure level. The price closes between the pressure level and the support level. The price rises slightly, the price is neutral, and the short-term price trend is downward and then biased towards neutral. If prices continue to rise today, the price trend will rise from falling to neutral. However, it is limited to short-term fast-in and fast-out. The mid and long-term expectations are yet to be seen.
U. S. stocks rebounded more than 500 points last night, and the gains are okay. In fact, from the news side, there are several reasons. First of all, the epidemic situation has actually slowed down. Whether it is the United States or the main epidemic countries in Europe, it is a very good phenomenon. Of course, there are still two large population countries continue to increase, namely Russia and India. Yesterday Putin also said that their situation is getting worse, and India will not talk about it. Compared with this novel coronavirus, their remaining infectious diseases are numerous and there is a trend of group immunization (personal guess).
There are also rumors that the Agricultural Bank of China is conducting internal tests on the central bank's digital currency DCEP wallet on the evening of April 14. If it is true, it will be a major benefit, but it is only a rumor. It is inevitable that many parties deliberately released a news war and will track whether the message surface is confirmed.
Operation suggestions:
Support level: the first support level is 6619 points, the second support level is 6658 integers;
Resistance level: the first resistance level is 7009 points, the second resistance level is 7100 points.
