Let's talk about scams, 419, Craigslist, eBay, etc.
Never had one of these before
he really thought someone who he hasn't spoken to in four years would just wire him some $$.
I'm not going to belittle an old "friend" by talking all high and mighty in a private chat.
Ive been brainstorming ways to generate /x/ type of hype on an "artifact" and sell it on ebay
Listen to this one then; you open a company called the Arse Tickler's Faggot Fan Club. You take an advert in the back page of some gay mag, advertising the latest in arse-intruding dildos, sell it a bit with, er... I dunno, "does what no other dildo can do until now", latest and greatest in sexual technology. Guaranteed results or money back, all that bollocks. These dills cost twenty-five each; a snip for all the pleasure they are going to give the recipients. They send a cheque to the company name, nothing offensive, er, Bobbie's Bits or something, for twenty-five. You put these in the bank for two weeks and let them clear. Now this is the clever bit. Then you send back the cheques for twenty-five pounds from the real company name, Arse Tickler's Faggot Fan Club, saying sorry, we couldn't get the supply from America, they have sold out. Now you see how many of the people cash those cheques; not a single soul, because who wants his bank manager to know he tickles arses when he is not paying in cheques!
Tbh, it's not as bad, it's not like you're hurting anyone.
You're basically teaching people a lesson on how to not get scammed, after you take $5,000-$20,000 out of their savings though.
>post resume on the usual sites
>Get a few people contact you about sales positions
>all of them turn out to be MLM schemes
if your income comes from my work and you're not my boss then its a scam.
>Sending $30 to a guy you haven't spoken to in years that wants you to wire transfer
I bet you cry every time one of those slow tune charity commercials come on
If he was in any real problems he would've called
While not a scammed, I got fucked over on eBay due to my own incompetence.
I bought some german silver bars. Being me, I figured that they were silver from Germany as they had a german cross and eagle and such imprinted on them. However, "german silver" is a nickel/copper alloy. Having realised this, I reread the listing which indeed did not say anything about what the bars contained.
Caveat emptor indeed. Only got myself to blame, though. Will probably try and resell using the same tactic.
>Wants to teach how to avoid scams
Uh, because it's free. Nothing is free, most people are just paranoid if they won $1,000,000 RH would freeze it claiming you're doing something wrong and hold your funds till you used up 1/4 of the win to sue them for it.
I mean you've seen the inventors of the app, it's just college kids.
P.s. most people in RH threads have dynamic ISPs, so if you see 3+ replies on a stock, it's most likely the same person.
1.tell church you will donate millions of dollars
2. Theyll praise you and say your going to heaven
3.Confess sins to a priest, say you lied but dont be specific about what
4.priest absolves your sins
>find pet store, buy hamsters, cheap breed easily, furry as fuck
>instead of wood chips for bedding in their cages, buy Dollar Store panties (this will make perfect sense in just a minute)
>go to local college with abundance of hipsters, libtards, anarchist wannabes, greasy-haired, pot-smoking, patchouli-stinking dregs and acquire pubic lice AKA crabs, crotch-crickets, whatever the kids are calling them these days
>infect hamster population (crabs require living furry host)
>start anonymous corporation and website
>revenge website selling crab-infested panties
>people buy to plant at ex-gf's apartment, ex-husband's BMW, supervisors locker at work, douchebag's gymbag, use your imagination
>very low start-up fixed costs, low variable costs, high profit margins
>be next Kim Dotcom
Use it as a means of income. Keep your principal in there, and immediately extract any earnings. Don't risk more than you're willing to lose. It's basically gambling, and it takes self control, so if you don't have any, you probably shouldn't invest. If nothing else, it's an excellent way to learn the market for young people like me.
>infecting dollar store panties one at a time yourself
>not scalable, not able to delegate labor
>not expanding to giant overseas warehouses filled with racks upon racks of itchy hamsters
>this is why /biz/ is foreverpoor
>Both men face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
I was thinking of buying a Real Doll and renting a room and advertising on Craigslist, just charge 80$ an hour to thirsty betas in my city to have bareback sex with it.
There's no shortage of thirsty betas in Vancouver.

>Selling iPhone on Craigslist
>Doesn't want to step out of car
>Pull phone out
"Okay okay, thanks here's the cash"
>Sticks money out of window
Clearly I can tell the shit is fake
>Tell him I don't accept $50+ bills (he had x2 $100)
>He tells me the bodega right behind us (literally) would not exchange
>I worked at said so bodega
>tell him they will if I go with him, then ask him to turn around and meet me there
"I have to go to work" -8PM
I tell him I can't accept the high bills and would really like for him to take his time to look at the phone.
He then agrees to get change and drives off, but doesn't come back...
CL in general is shit desu
Once took a three hour bus ride to buy someone's iPad few years back
Kept them updated on where I was throughout so they would know how much I really wanted the iPad. 10min there they reply with
"My wife is at the hospital, I'm going to have to cancel"
Last time I ever left my town to buy something on Craigslist
ffs I used to go to New York to buy iPhones, had to stop by McDonalds to get wifi on my iPod for location.
Even taking a fucking Peterpan bus for 2 hours up state to then wait 8 hours for the next one going home, just to buy some damn phones.
This is my friend. Known the guy for like 15 years, but recently he begs for money all the time.
>"cmon dude, it's just $2, why you gotta be like that?"
It was $2 this morning too. $15 yesterday. He used to be cool, but his motto these days is "always be hustling." I avoid talking to him these days because of it. He's already driven another friend off and he's rapidly pushing me away.

you dumb fuck
I tried using Facebook group sales a month ago myself, shit is full of thieves/scammers. Mostly MLM scammers that start threatening you through private message when you call them out.
Or the usual iCloud dumbasses that don't know if they steal an iPhone, even it doesn't have a passcode, it's still locked since the user never signed out of iTunes.
Only group I'm in now is "Lost cars" etc. Hilarious seeing people have their whole car stolen.
rate my scam.
>claim not received
>get back refund+sell bitcoin
>you only need 4 signups!! look how much you'll be making in 12 weeks time!!!

>and so on
>and so on
>and in a mere 12 weeks time and 16,777,216 signups later you'll be earning 200k profit!
