I shall now retire for the evening. I worked in that industry for a decade and hated it so... Once, though, I loved it. I wish I was back in the poo poo... It was magical. Now, all I have are memories of absurd inside deals and missed attempts to get free poo poo from reps.

B-but you've only just begun to school us! Don't take your bat and ball and go home yet! :allears:

What about circumcised gas station attendants? Do you tip them or pump your own gas? Looking to hear from at least fifty people in every state here.

I believe in that case the advertising cheque was legally formatted as/included all the necessary elements to be considered a real cheque, so he was legally entitled to deposit it.

It's funny how like three in the last ten posts have talked about people getting spoofed calls from their own number.

The thread is spoofing posts from itself.

Wonderin' about a letter x2 I got today for Nextdoor. It's got a stamp on it. Dumb postal carrier put both in my physical mailbox. Thing is, oops noticed that there are 2 different codes. Seems fishy. Shredding atm. Activation code was said to expire in 7 days. Red flag for me. Watch out for this bullshit.

Isn't that literally their job? To put mail in mailboxes?

Life imitates art. There was a "miracle cure"-pedding grifter in Contagion, and just like this hellworld we live in, his faithful followers bailed him out after the CDC or SEC or whoever investigated him and exposed the scam.

Oh, I'm sorry, I mean after :argh: THE drat FEDS :argh: put their bootheel down on an honest businessman just trying to get you the miracle cure that doctors Don't Want You To Know!!11!!

How the gently caress you activate an almond

Meet it in a local diner and, during the conversation, drop a pre-defined phrase or sentence that it was given by its previous handlers

I don't even know what you're trying to get at with this.

No. More like a sleeper agent or Manchurian Candidate. But an almond.

Most likely this. I had scammerbots with scantily-clad duckface girls starting conversations out of the blue on LINE. Despite my responding to every single message from the first with goatse, they went through the entire script.

So what's the scam? Change the hyperlink text to a legit URL while the actual URL for the hyperlink is the phishing site, counting on people not to hover over the link to verify its veracity?

That exact type of scam has been common in the wild for a few years now.
