Why YSK: Plaid, which Venmo uses, stores your bank account password and uses it to record all your activity.
Plaid was recently sued by a bank: https://www.ctvnews.ca/business/td-bank-files-lawsuit-against-plaid-accusing-it-of-trying-to-dupe-consumers-1.5145326
> "In reality, however, consumers are unwittingly giving their login credentials to the defendant, who takes the information, stores it on its servers, and uses it to mine consumers' bank records for valuable data (e.g., transaction histories, loans, etc.), which the defendant monetizes by selling to third parties," TD claimed in the court records.
Other apps that use Plaid: Robinhood, Coinbase, Betterment, and Acorns.
So HarryButAverage supposedly just had his account perma-banned because it was created before he was 13 years old.
I used this website: https://twitch-tools.rootonline.de/followerlist_viewer.php to give me the account creation date of Tommyinnit's account through another Twitch account that he followed and as you can see in this screencap: https://i.imgur.com/NVl7NFT.png his account was made February 19th 2016.
Google says Tommyinnit was born in April 2004, which means he was 11 years old when he made his Twitch account.
Is this gross hypocrisy from Twitch or am I missing something?
My father died a couple weeks ago and my stepmom decided to use his Facebook account. It was like being kicked in the stomach when I saw a notification that my dad had posted something when he had been dead for almost two weeks.
This morning, I followed the steps to memorialize his account and I didn't tell anyone what I was doing until it was done. Now she's furious because she can't go tinker with his page. She has her own so I don't understand why she needs to be in his. She can still go see his stuff and post on his wall. It's worth noting that before all this, she hadn't used facebook in more than 2 years.
Give it to me straight, am I the asshole here?
EDIT: I did tell her it bothered us. I asked her to use her own page, as she does have one, and she told me she hated Facebook and doesn't want to use it. ..yet she used his to sell some of his stuff the day after he died, and posted a comment to my brother's page asking him to call her. She didn't bother to say it was her posting. It was just weird and unsettling.
My fellow GME-stans,
For far too long the world has dismissed us as degenerates, gamblers, and uninformed retail scum, and while we are some or perhaps all of those things, we are also now a powerful force to be taken seriously. Our culture is now the culture of the entire finance industry. Our memes are now viral across every social platform. Our shitty DD now moves entire markets.
The world is already talking about us, but it is time for us to have a voice and talk back. Moving forward, the moderators will be managing the Twitter account @wsbmod as our main form of communication with the outside world. This account will be used to coordinate AMAs and other interactions with important people, share dank memes while giving due credit to our creators here, and generally shitposting to the best of our abilities. Not to mention being able to reply to Shitron's tweets.
tl;dr @wsbmod is the only official Twitter account of the sub and we need your help to ensure our voice is heard loud and far.
Link to collection of allegations:
Sub of the horrible things this man has done according to the list above:
Groomed minors in his channel
Lied about wearing condoms
Used donation money that was stated to be going towards his children's education to buy hotels for the fans he was grooming
I'm not really sure what this sub can do, but this monster deserves to be shut down immediately. If he is able to come back to twitch without his account being banned, what a fucking stain on the platform that would be. I'm not sure what Twitch TOS is, but surely groomers and rapists shouldn't be allowed on the platform?
So I (F21) and my bf (20) are getting married in March on our 1 year anniversary.
My mom had gotten a storage unit under his name that she was giving us the money for. She had apparently forgotten to give us the money one month (by a few days) and he ended up having it pulled out of his account automatically. My boyfriends parents had noticed the account withdrawal and ended up going ape shit on my bf about the money. His mom ended up sending me a bunch of really nasty texts while I was at work and when I didn’t respond, she sent my bf up to my job to make me answer.
Once I contacted my mom, she immediately sent us the money and apologized. His mom was going to apologize to me but I never called her to have the conversation due to the anxiety/left over frustration. I just feel like it’s weird that they go through all of his bank info when he’s never had any issue with spending, they also never did it with his other siblings.
It's easy to know the basics: no talking about phones or the internet, keep my opinions on social issues to myself, and dress more formally.
But what are some things I would still probably end up doing that would seem strange or unusual if I suddenly landed in this time period with an ID, car, house, and job?
Well guys, I lost 90k today on SPY calls which was basically all of my account. I started in 2017 with like 30k of my own money and over the course of 3 years, spent probably a couple hundred hours learning about stocks, options, doing "research" etc. Today, I am down 8k since i started in 2017.
(shows -60k but I was down -30k yesterday already on the calls)
That was money I planned on using for a downpayment on a house, and for paying my taxes on gains from last year. So once February comes around, the 20k I have left is basically going to taxes on gains from last year which are now gone. I am effectively broke :-)
Im not that upset because I have a decent paying job.. but god damn, I was literally just contacting real estate agents last week because I was planning on buying a house. I could still buy one, but it will probably take me years to get back to 100k in savings.
I should have just stuck to selling puts like I was doing for the past couple months. The gains aren't huge, but selling 100k worth of puts every week is enough to make you a couple G's every month with not a ton of risk. I could have made my future mortgage payments just selling puts.
I am trying to look on the bright side. Having 100k made me spend somewhat frivolously. Like eating out twice a day, buying clothes i didn't need, etc. Now I have to go back to scrimping and scraping, which is good I think. I was getting a little ridiculous.
Also, I have been finishing up my degree online but have had no motivation since I already have a decent job and decent money saved. Im feeling the pressure now to hurry up and finish my degree so I can get a better job (100k+ a year).
I went all in on $390 1/22 SPY calls yesterday. I did the math; if we would have had a 1.5% day today, I would have made about 500k.. but it was pretty flat so at open, I was already down a shit ton. Figuring there was no chance left, I pulled out what was left, about 47k. I saw ford was going up crazy and figured that was pretty much my only chance to get back to where I was. Basically bought calls expiring tomorrow at the top, started going down, I pushed out and sold. So now I have 20k.
I'm not super depressed about it or anything because I know ill be fine, but I already miss the coziness of having 100k stored away. Knowing that if I lost my job or something, id be okay. But like I said, Im looking on the bright side.
My goal at the moment is to just save as much money as po... keep reading on reddit ➡
