Scammer Pretends to be CEO in Failed Phishing Attempt, Gets Trolled

Phishing is a very real threat —so why does it seem so ridiculous every time you see a story about it? Every time it makes news —or happens in your own workplace— the story is always somewhere along the lines of “Bob from accounting bought $100,000 of gift cards for fake CEO” or “Deborah from HR gave all the company's passwords to someone impersonating her boss.” You always walk wondering just what in the heck these people were thinking… How on earth did they fall for that? Usually, phishing at…

TIFU by getting scammed for $2k | So I'm a truck driver and last night I got scammed for $2000 dollars. It happened at the Terribles Gas Station right before Las Vegas. I parked there to go to sleep and shut down for the night, I went down from my truck to walk around and stretch my legs. As I was walking around, a black SUV pulled up next to me and a Rich looking Middle Eastern guy rolled down his window in a panic, he looked desperate and his wife was in the backseat crying with her 2 kids.

Truck Driver Gets Scammed Out of $2000 By Fake Rich Guy in Vegas, Shares Their Story

This is one of those lessons that is incredibly brutal to learn firsthand. It's almost biblical in a way; a wary and weary traveler is hailed by a stranger who claims to have suffered some misfortune. Will they help out? Will they give them the shirt off their own back? Except in this story, the stranger doesn't magically transform into a beautiful woman or a bearded old man and bestow riches upon them for their heart of gold. Nah, this is Vegas, baby - that stranger is going to strangle you wi…

Trending Topic: Woman 'Catfished' by Her Ex's New Girlfriend, Internet Offers Their Advice

It's no secret that the Internet loves a good catfishing story. The recent viral internet trends surrounding the subject have been helped immensely by Netflix's fascination with pumping out docu-drama's on victims and perpetrators of the “Catfish.” Recent examples include their series on Anna Delvey who catfished the entire system of New York's elite, ‘Tinder Swindler’ Simon Leviev who is inexplicably not in prison, and Manti Te'o, an NFL player who was infamously catfished by a non-existent wo…

Thread Exposes Shady Scam Practice Used By Debt Collectors and Banks

It's almost hard to believe that a (mostly) credible financial institution could resort to such predatory practices but the unfortunate thing is that it happens all of the time. Something similar happened to me with one of the top medical institutions in the state where I grew up. Turns out, they had hidden fees that they charged into an “account” under your name every time you went for a visit. This was in addition to the copay I had to make for my insurance.
