Hey, buddy.




So, been seeing FB ads for a raffle for the chance to win a Ferrari! The proceeds are for charity! How lovely. Their website, Facebook account and Twitter all came into existence about two weeks ago, while all non essential businesses are closed. Their website, theferrariexperience.ie consists of pictures found from other sites on Google. The raffle is for a car worth Ä250k and they're selling 6000 tickets at Ä50 a pop.

I mean, I can't PROVE its a scam, but

come on

This is solidly something that should be reported to the FTC. Let the governmentís helpful Peppa Pig-esque illustration lead the way...



Heck, Iíd bet the FDA and FEMA might be interested too, though I donít know how youíd go about doing so (maybe they need Peppa Pig illustrations too).

Edit: you might want to edit out your/your coworkerís phone number at the top of the screenshot.
Edit 2: vvvvv Good suggestion, thanks.

Heck, the FBI might get a boner at the idea of being able to nail someone for this if they're out of state, assuming that they're not actually in Chennai.

Edit: it's out of Florida. Even odds on the scammer being in the president's cabinet.

what horror the gas


It was ads for a browser game called Evony. The company was shady as hell and spammed ads everywhere to the point of saturation, first with generic fantasy ads and later with almost porn-like ads, which is where the "come play, my Lord" thing came from. It turned into a meme because of it. https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/evon...lay-now-my-lord

THE DEM DEFENDER HAS LOGGED ON


i got a series of texts for a dope dealer over a few days. not sure if this is a sincere wrong number or some really weird scam. not replying in either case

quote:

Hey it's Ben this is my number

quote:

Hey Craig, what's good man, this is Ben, I met you at Kristin N Brads apartment the other night. Hey I was wondering if you would be interested in trading anything for Foodstamps, I've got like several hundred dollars worth of foodstamps on the card and I didn't know if you might be interested, hit me back and let me know, either way man, I appreciate ya, later bro

quote:

Hey Craig, this is kassie. Look, we are about to be sick as gently caress and Tim's not doing nothing right now. I finally got word from my school that they sent my check out and I was really hoping you could help us out until Thursday when it gets here. I know your up at the cabin but isn't your buddy still here? I promise you I will get you back on Thursday when my check comes and will pay you an extra $50 for the trouble .....

quote:

We are here is there any way we can talk when you get here about how much? If you could just hop in the car and holla at me, because it's probably gonna be more than last time if it's good, i appreciate it buddy

i can't figure out the scam angle here. i hope ben and kassie were able to exchange their foodstamps for craig's heroin eventually

Craig probably thought Ben and Kassie were narcs and gave them a fake number, which happened to be yours.
