Ok so I'm kind of fucked.
Due to some weird circumstances my parents want to look through my banking history because they think there has been some kind of fraud.
I have paid for tokens on MFC and Chaturbate a few times recently. So is there any way to prevent that from being seen by them or am I totally just fucking fucked forever?
I had to buy something kind of expensive from ebay for school which they knew about and it prompted the bank to call my home number where my parents still live. Basically the balance was less than they were expecting and they're insistent on looking through my account history.
Any suggestions on convincing them not to look through it? I mean they can't force me to show them but it would look really suspicious if I refused, and probably worse than the reality of things.
They don't have access, they're asking me to show them but if I refuse it's going to look even worse than it is. If they find out it would be catastrophic for a lot of reasons. They are both extremely Christian and I would like them to believe that I am too. I could explain away the Epoch charges if I were tactful but the Chaturbill charges are pretty impossible to explain away.
You're probably fucked.
The bank certainly won't edit your statement. If you had to submit statements to a company or government body to prove your income and expenditure it wouldn't be unreasonable to print the statement and blank out the names, but if you do that with your parents they're going to know straight away that you're hiding something - given that they're looking for fraud, the repercusions of that would probably be worse than them finding out you've been paying for porn.
The first thing to do is take a look at your statement and see what the transactions are listed as. Chances are they won't say "hot xxx ladyboy spermload action", because they'd never get any return customers (no one wants that shit in their records). It'll probably show up as "blahblah media group" or "soandso entertainment", something like that. You might get lucky and they won't think anything of it, or if they ask you could just say it's dlc or whatever - of course, if they google it you're fucked.
Another option could be to say you bought it for someone else, "Oh that, yeah. John lost his card so he asked me to pay for something online then he gave me the cash for it, don't really know what it was". It's getting in to "sorry teacher, the dog ate my homework" territory, but it's not like you have any better options.
OK so you can't prevent them from looking into it, right? Then you have to chin up and have a chat with them. Tell them to sit down, explain you want to be honest. Say you were really lonely and shy and that's why you sought those girl streams. Say you're sorry and want to go to church. Say you will get over it and find a girlfriend.
You may need some alcohol to make it less cringy.
and please don't do what this guy says, trying to find those excuses will probably make them lose their trust even more, unless they're gullible. Just sit down with them, they'll freak out a little but if you put it like I said they will be more inclined to understand.
Thanks for the advice guys. I think I'm just going to tell them the truth and hopefully they won't be too angry with me. The only other option that makes sense is to use the true fact that one of my friends is a Chaturbate model and say I was paying some kind of fee for her but I think I'll just own up so I don't put her in danger of being found out.
I don't really have access right now. I am meeting them this weekend at my sisters college for some kind of event but I guess I could get some beforehand if I make a stop on the interstate.
Jesus you're fucking retarded.
A) You should sue your bank for giving account information to unauthorized users
B) It's not like it says "TRANSVESTITE BOY PUSSY LOVER" on your invoice, and unless they've used chaturbate they have no clue what that even means
C) Unless they're the ones giving you the money, it's none of their fucking business what you spend it on. My mom is nosy too, and I love her, but there's no fucking way I'm ever handing her over my finances.
D) Next time just get a prepaid credit card and pay for your gay interracial porn with that
Can't you at least black out the names of these few transactions and tell them these are "private" ?
I mean they'd know there are some things you're not proud of, but at least you don't have to introduce them to Chaturbate...
Yeah and one that probably makes more money than you by having orgasms so
Yeah I think I'm either going to just say I bought porn or find a way to not show them the statement. Really don't wanna have to explain Chaturbate or chance my friend getting found out since she still lives in my hometown with her parents.
Talk to them like adults. Say your finances are your issue and that you will show them the point where they are sceptical. If they say your expenses are stupid, tell them its none of their buisness and that you will look after yourself. If there is truly a fraud or financial error going in dont be afraid to show them, they will unterstand!
Haha yeah. That's definitely more than average because it was her birthday and Chaturbate users love to tip way more when it's the model's birthday. She still makes great money for something she loves doing though. Like better than any job I have ever had.
If you can get them to accept that the page they need to see is open then you can edit the contents in the window using dev tools. Hit F12.
Hover over the window with the code stuff. If there's no code stuff click the 'elements' tab. Hover again over the code stuff. It should be showing colors of different things on the screen. Find a post. Expand it, edit the contents or whatever. Looks completely convincing. So if you have trouble with any payments you can just change the name that's being displayed while they watch.
Take screenshots and ask questions if you need help. The entire thing resets when you update the window.
You should just tell them that there isn't any fraud going on and your finances aren't their business. Unless they're giving you money to live on they have zero reasons to be asking for this.
Anyways, if you show them, stop fucking worrying about them seeing you paid for porn. Most porn sites have generic business names so when they show up on bank/credit card statements they don't seem out of the ordinary. If they find out and if they look up the two sites it's nothing but cam whores anyways. This seems like too much work over hiding you paid for some porn.
Also, follow the one anons advice and get a prepaid debit card to pay for this stuff in the future.
