FBI Warns of Crypto Human Trafficking Rings in Asia

The #FBI issued a warning on fake job ads that lure people to Southeast Asia, where “victims are held against their will and forced to commit international crypto #scams on unsuspecting victims.”… Image
"These scam mills usually put up ads on #socialmedia and lure their victims by promising well-paid jobs. Upon arrival, however, victims have their passports taken and are forced to work by scamming innocent people."
"Furthermore, if workers were unsuccessful, they would reportedly face torture, abuse, murder, or be sold to another gang."

I wrote this to a #BJP supporter who wanted to know my political position. I am expanding and sharing it here.

1. BJP is as corrupt and inefficient as #Congress, but it gets a free pass because it is successfully advancing the cause of #Hindu #majoritarianism.

2. Examples are #Rammandir, #kashivishvanathtemple, #Article370, #TripleTalaq, #UCC, #CAANRC, #Cowslaughter bans, random #lynchings of Muslims, ban on #Azan in public, etc. A majority of Hindus in India support these, as they believe these will "put Muslims in their place."

3. In fact, #Corruption under the BJP is likely to be far worse than under Congress rule, because the media (which is now entirely under the control of Modi's corporate cronies like A&A) simply refuses to investigate any BJP corruption scams. Examples: #Vyapam, #Rafale...

ಇತ್ತೀಚೆಗೆ #WhatsApp ನಲ್ಲಿ ಅಪರಿಚಿತ/ಅನಾಮಧೇಯ ಸಂಖ್ಯೆಗಳಿಂದ ವಿಡಿಯೋ ಕರೆಗಳು ಬರುತ್ತಿದ್ದು, ಕರೆ ಸ್ವೀಕರಿಸಿದಾಗ ಬ್ಲಾಂಕ್ ಸ್ಕ್ರೀನ್ ಬರುತ್ತದೆ ಅಥವಾ ಎದುರಿನ ಕರೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ನಗ್ನ ಯುವತಿ ಇರುವುದು ಕಾಣಿಸುತ್ತದೆ. ಕೆಲ ಸೆಕೆಂಡ್ ಗಳ ನಂತರ ಕರೆ ಕಟ್ ಮಾಡಲಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. (1/n) ImageImageImage

ಒಂದುವೇಳೆ ಹಣ ನೀಡದಿದ್ದಲ್ಲಿ ಅವುಗಳನ್ನು ನಿಮ್ಮ ಕುಟುಂಬದವರಿಗೆ, ಸ್ನೇಹಿತರಿಗೆ ಕಳುಹಿಸುವುದಾಗಿ ಮತ್ತು ಸಾಮಾಜಿಕ ಜಾಲತಾಣಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಕಟಿಸುವುದಾಗಿ ಬೆದರಿಕೆ ಹಾಕಿ ಅವರು ಕೇಳಿದ ಮೊತ್ತವನ್ನು ನೀಡುವಂತೆ ಬ್ಲಾಕ್ ಮೇಲ್ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಾರೆ. (3/n)

Have refused to cover these tests despite the law crystal clearly preventing coverage decisions OTHER THAN THE FFCRA LAW.
These tests work, providers know it, labs know it. Heck insurers know it. BUT THOSE WHO PAY FOR TESTS DONT WANT TO PAY. So they first violate law by refusing to pay for approved multiplex tests, using coverage determinations AKA prior auth and medical management. This is Medicaid Image

Crypto giveaway scams continue to soar: Group-IB has noted a fivefold increase in the number of domains used for #crypto giveaway #scams that involve fake #YouTube streams in the first half of 2022:

According to Group-IB, 63% of the new fraudulent domain names were registered with Russian registrars, but the #fake websites are primarily designed to target English and Spanish-speaking #crypto investors in the US and other countries:
In the first six months of 2022, @CERTGIB identified more than 2,000 domains registered explicitly to be used as #fake promotion websites. This figure increased almost five-fold compared to the second half of 2021 and 53-fold in comparison with H1 2021:

The latter triggered concerns among some people who suggested the team was playing with “fake” money but these rumors were absolutely baseless. The secret to frequent #winsfromzia is pretty prosaic and has more to do with math than with #scams… they spin the reels every day for 16 hours, boosting their chances to hit a lucky combination. he biggest jackpot hit by these guys thus far is a nice $528,800 on Push Gaming’s Land of Zenith. They also like Fruit Party,… Sweet Bonanza, and Madame Destiny Megaways. In case you were wondering, the name of the team simply reflects their deep fondness for a good beef steak.

[#Thread] Après une semaine mouvementée pour les plus sensibles d'entre vous, parlons éducation et terme #crypto technique.

Abordons ensemble la notion de #vesting

Qu'est ce que c'est ? En quoi ça consiste ? Est-ce risqué ? Partons à la conquête de cet univers obscur ⬇️
La définition du #vesting

Le « vesting » est un terme anglais qui se traduit par "acquisition".

Dans les #crypto, c'est le processus de libération des tokens des investisseurs après la période de verrouillage (#lockup).

Un mix entre la durée et la quantité de tokens reçu.
Après la période de blocage, les #tokens pourront être réclamés par les #investisseurs.

La quantité de jetons récupérer va dépendre de la courbe d’acquisition adoptée :

- Linéaire
- Logarithmique
- Exponentielle

Chaque projet possède son propre modèle de #vesting.

🔴La liquidez en las #shitcoins🔴
Entrando en shitcoins se puede ganar MUCHO dinero.
El problema es que el 99% son scam.
Una de las cosas más importantes a chequear es la liquidez.
Si quieres no caer en mas #SCAMS leete este hilo.
🔴¿Qué és la liquidez?🔴
Cuando creas un nuevo contrato tienes que añadir dos cosas.
🔸Cantidad de las monedas que has creado.
🔸Cantidad en la moneda de la chain (BNB por ejemplo)
Esto crea un equilibrio y marca el precio.
Por ejemplo 1.000.000 de #Shiba valen 20 #BNB

🔴El Equilibrio🔴

🟩Cuando tu compras metes bnb y salen tokens.
Sube el precio de la liquidez y de la moneda.
🟥Cuando tu vendes metes toquen y sacas bnb.
Baja el precio de bnb de la liquidez y de la moneda.

Y este es al juego que jugamos.

🔴🔴Hasta que se llevan todo🔴🔴

{Mini #Thread] C'est vendredi et le vendredi... C'est éducation party !

Un peu de vocabulaire avec le #rugpull en #crypto. Nous allons voir ce qu'est un rug pull mais aussi, comment essayer d'en déceler un avant de tomber dans le piège.

Détendez vous et voyons ça ensemble ⬇️
Le "#rugpull" est un terme anglophone qui se traduit en français par tirage de tapis. Pas très #sexy hein ?

Dans le secteur des #crypto, un rug pull est une arnaque où les fondateurs/développeurs abandonnent leur projet et s'enfuient avec les fonds des investisseurs.
La grande majorité des #rugpull se produisent sur des plateformes de #finance décentralisée (#DEX).

Ils opèrent sur ces plateformes car ils sont beaucoup plus simples à mettre en œuvre.

Mais ils existent aussi sur des plateformes centralisée comme avec Thodex et son PDG.

Telenor Pakistan is outright scamming its user base by auto subscribing to some 'Nazara Gaming' thing. They deduct 20rs or more each week even though you never subscribed to it. Telenor users keep an eye on your balance history!

#telenor #scam #nazara
Caught them stealing my balance because it always zeroed after some time even with no phone usage. Was suspicious since weeks, talked to their Live Chat agent who confirmed that they are deducting balance each week but would not tell me when it started!
#telenor #pakistan #scam
And #telenor agent said there is no possibility of any refunds. Telenor Pakistan is being run by thieves. I told this to my relative who uses Telenor as well and he found out he was being charged for Nazara gaming thing too without his consent. #telenor #pakistan #nazara #gaming

1. Holders
Go to etherscan and put in address. On the page you just opened, look at the "Holders" list. The biggest holders of a coin should always be the liquidity pool which is usually identified as "Uniswap: COIN NAME" and the dead coins’ wallet, usually...
usually identified as "0x000000000000000000000000000000000000dead". Why is this important? It reduces the possibility of a #rugpull to almost zero, especially if the dead coins’ wallet is over 50%.
Also watch out if there are too many whales 🐳
For example, 10 wallets each holding 3% of total coins is a huge red flag. Abort immediately. A healthy new coin should also have at least 200-300 holders. If it doesn't, also abort immediately. ❌

"Life imitating art" 📽️

Saw a headline last week about the #VaticanBank being involved in some mysterious money flows, so decided to watch the newly edited #Godfather 3 #Coda


For those that don't know the connections, read on... Gives the📽️an added dimension 👀🕵️‍♀️ ImageImage
In the film, Michael #Corleone is effectively trying to break from the #Mafia life & channel his family wealth into something 'legit'

To do that, he tries to exploit an opportunity with the #VaticanBank who are attempting to plug holes in their balance sheet

#Immobiliare 💸 Image
In the film, #Immobiliare is a real estate vehicle owned by the Vatican & #DonCorleone wants to buy-in with his ill gotten gains & create a European conglomerate that will elevate the family for generations to come

Now for the obvious (& not so obvious) parallels with reality Image
