JUST IN: #BNNUK Reports.

Over 100 were arrested in Britain's biggest-ever fraud operation, through a website used by scammers to steal millions of pounds from Britons via fake bank phone calls. #Scam #Fraud #UK #Crime Image
According to reports, around 2,00,000 potential victims were targeted via the iSpoof fraud website, which was taken down this week by Scotland Yard’s cybercrime unit.
Police informed that at least 20 people every minute of the day were being contacted by scammers hiding behind false identities created using the site.

BREAKING: #BNNNetherlands Reports.

This year alone, the police have shut down 328 fraudulent webshops. The police reported on Tuesday that victims of fake web shops spend an average of 357 euros. Image
According to the police, the number of fake webshops removed from the internet has more than doubled this year.

New fraudulent webshops typically appear around the holidays. As a result, the police expect to shut down even more of these websites.
According to reports, fake webshops have already caused more than 3.3 million euros in damage this year.

This is nearly a million euros more than the previous year. But because not all victims report the crime, the total amount of damage is likely to be even greater.

Since #WWII, #USA has used #USdollar hegemony to transfer domestic crises, harvest world #wealth and undermine the economic and financial stability of other countries through armed conflicts, financial wars, and trade wars. To maintain US dollar is to maintain US world hegemony. Since #WWII, #USA has used ...
Since March 2022, #FederalReserve has raised interest rates 6X. On 2 Nov, its 75-point rate hike and sharp #USdollar appreciation caused global #currency depreciation, capital outflows, rising debt servicing costs, hiked imported inflation and currency/debt crises of countries.
How this #KhazarianMafia #SCAM all started: At the latter part of #WWII, #USA took the opportunity to hoard tons of #gold and led the establishment of Bretton Woods system based on a peg between #USdollar and gold, thus establishing US dollar as "global hard #currency".

Freedom 251: A Captivating #Scam💰

#India #technology #Mobile
🪙 All That Glitters Is Not Gold
In 2015-2016, initiatives like “Make in India” and “Digital India” were at their peak. A Noida-based company tried to do something good, or something too good to be true.
With a phone consisting of 1 GB RAM, a quad-core processor, a dual sim and a bundle of other features which were way too much for its trivial price of ₹251. Many suspicions were raised about it being a fraud.

#Powerball $1.9 billion. Powerball: your odds of winning are greater NOT playing. Per…, the AVERAGE American man, woman, and child spend $230/year on the Lottery. But so many DO NOT play the lottery. So do players spend double? #Lottery #Money #Scam 1/
2/ "people with a household income of less than $10,000 a year who play the lottery spend $597 a year on tickets,” says the above article, citing the New York Times. What's the buy in to pay out $1.9 billion? 50% more than that?
3/ The real lump sum payout is far less than the advertised $1.9 billion. And you'll have to pay a fortune in taxes. Putting it another way, the ratio of pay in to pay out after taxes might be something like 3:1. That's 1/3 is also what the lottery tickets are worth on average.

I don't, but my colleague and I have several relationships in common with him, and he himself obviously knows 9000 people on #LinkedIn.
A month ago, he was at 8500. Nice progression! 🔝 [2/11] Image
🕵️♂️ Very popular, Mr Birenhac has an enviable position. He presents well, coherent background and auditor at the @Courdescomptes.
❌ Problem : he doesn't exist! Several elements show that it is a #fake. Let's recap ⤵️

FYI. I’m not at all bitter even if I may sound it. In my youth I studied the history of money and the federal reserve system. After ‘the light bulb went on’, I felt I had no choice but to teach myself to invest/trade (play) the inflation/deflation cycle ‘game’ that the fed plays
Money will always be created in ever growing quantities. The game is to invest now where you’re sure it will flow to next #uranium as a sector is that place. The entire sector has such a tiny market cap (sub $100b) even if you include government owned entities.

In Aug 2022, I investigated two inter-connected Chinese-origin apps on @GooglePlay that swindle money from Pak and Turkish citizens while falsely pretending to be a solar energy company in Germany.

@PTAofficialpk @GermanyinPAK @MFATurkiye

Receiving multiple DMs from fellow Pakistani citizens who are on the verge of a breakdown. I have advised them to do the needful and lodge complaints with authorities concerned. These people did not carry out due diligence, scammed against promises of 'high profit'.
Both apps use sophisticated forms of deceptive marketing. They claim that their 'head office' is based in Tulpenfeld, Bonn, Germany. The scammers even hired white models (a fake ginger-haired 'CEO') for marketing.

How did we speculate on the market based on information appearing on the anonymous #web3 platform?

We check if the information in #bigshortbets is reliable!


It was a very high-profile case, for several months we were talking about the potential demise of LUNA in many media, even @dokwon engaged in insulting @rafal_zaorski.
We started in January, there are some baits about.…

@BlueDart_ , / Affroots Online Pvt. Ltd.
Order placed through website & was received today. Trusting the brand & delivery partner, parcel wasn't opened and then payment was done to delivery guy.
@jagograhakjago @PMOIndia
As soon as the courier was opened, it was found that totally a different & poor quality product was delivered.
Now, I tried tracking the delivery company, which I found out is some sham company in Ropar, Punjab.
Google maps doesn't show the mentioned add. & no contact no.
Then I tried contacting more trusted @BlueDartCares and they tell me, 'yes, they have the contract with that company but they don't check what is being delivered within their couriers'. BD also promised me to provide with contact number and address of that company.

#zerodha #scam #Thread
Zerodha data leak has caused a huge number of investors lose their life long made wealth
Huge number of Zerodha accounts are hacked and there is no support from zerodha customer care.
Investors literally cried to freeze the account but they didn't respond
They don't even have a Branch so that people can go there and discuss their issue.

You can watch todays episode of Zee business where Mr.Anil singhvi has addressed and investigated the whole issue.

All the discount brokers are doing the same.
They don't have a single back office support and they are indulge in heavy data leaks leading to hacking.

This is just a start guys

Please secure your account
And Switch to full time service brokers.

Il est pas évident de trouver LE projet #NFT qui va sortir du lot vu les centaines de collections #NFTs qui sortent chaque jour⚠️

Par contre certains indices (#redflag) permettent en général de détecter les projets #scam

En effet les projets NFT pullulent et il est parfois compliqué de détecter les scams au milieu des projets sérieux..

Les redflags que je vais évoquer ne permettent de détecter tous les scams, ce sont juste des indices qui pour moi sont révélateurs et pertinents...
La liste n'est bien entendu pas exhaustive 📃
Il s'agit simplement des critères que je retiens pour choisir les projets dans lesquels j'investis 🔬
