I found out that my wife of 4 years has been having a secret savings account. I just went through financial documents in our house because something was wrong, and I figured it out.
It opened up 4 years ago, and she’s been auto depositing 10% of her income every year. She’s saying it’s a completely healthy thing to do especially for women. She says that she wants to be secured if something happened to me or if I started abusing her.
I find that extremely illogical and that it’s pretty bad that she’s been lying this whole time. She’s been hiding $25k dollars from me. I put my money into our joint account, since we both agreed to merge our finances. She’s now saying that I can also put 10% of my income every year into my own account.
I then threatened to take 40% of my income(4 years times 10%) and put it into a separate account just for me. She’s now saying that’s financial abuse and called me an asshole if I did that. I honestly don’t see what she’s thinking. She put 40% of her i... keep reading on reddit ➡
#ENABLE TWO FACTOR AUTHENTICATION
Edit: seeing reports that some compromised accounts DID have 2FA enabled. Make sure you have a unique password regardless.
Edit 2: according to redtaboo, We have no evidence that 2fa was compromised, however out of an abundance of caution we are investigating this angle. We do know for a fact that a majority of the compromised accounts did not have 2fa enabled on their accounts, we're working to verify this is true for all accounts.

I'm been getting frustrated with seeing all of these streamers "smurfing for content", so I built a tool to prove they are not leveling them up on their own. I extended my hobby project to include a smurf-hunter capability that will identify overlap between accounts games to prove account sharing.
My main account was in game on August 2nd, 3:15pm. The game lasts 35 minutes My "smurf" started a bot game to level up on August 2nd, 3:30pm. The game lasts 13 minutes.
It is not possible for me to have played on both accounts at the same time. Therefore, account sharing has occurred.
For big streamers, they seem to be very aware of how obvious this is, so they often get the account leveled up on a different server, or they have someone "hand-level" the account many weeks in advance to make this very hard to notice. Fortunately, with the help of Riot's API and some programming it is very easy to catch these scenarios.

I’m familiar with the “cracking” process. I think it’s important for people to understand how it works, to know how to protect yourself.
“Crackers” hijack and steal your accounts to sell them for profit. The way they obtain these accounts is surprisingly simple. But also easy to prevent.
They run tools on outdated websites that can be exploited. These websites can change daily, depending on new software. If you made an account with your email and password on one of these sites, they can dump the logs in a matter of minutes. Getting thousands of email and password “combos”. For example, if you signed up for an account with a local news site, and that local news site website can be exploited, congratulations. A cracker has your email and pass combo.
They then take these email and password combos and run them through “Checkers”. Which are scripts that are capable of running hundreds of combos per minutes on sites that might have rewards point or your credit card saved. If you used the... keep reading on reddit ➡
I just recently moved from Australia back to Belgium, so now I wanna change my region to Europe and I go to the support to do so, and this is the answer I'm getting.
So basically in order to change my region, They will completly wipe my account, rank, paid skins, basically everything and I think that's bullshit.
Before starting the process I didn't have the information that this would happen, they just told me that I had to wait two weeks in order to change my region, and now they're asking me to this ? WTF
EDIT 1: Hello again,
While looking through the comments, someone shared their experience with me and it shows they did not have to wipe their account. You can check the screenshot here.
A riotter replied to this thread saying they had to work on their backend to allow region changes, but some people can change region without issues like this guy and some other need to wipe their account ? This is so inconsistent. WTF

Whole thread. I recommend reading the entirety of the the mod sticky, it's unusually angry for a legal advice sub. The end of it sums up OP's behavior in the thread:
> OP, you have made clear that you are here for a rant. I gave you the benefit of the doubt but you don't want to discuss the law with anyone. You want to rant about the media and make comments about Israel. That is unacceptable. Go and see a solicitor. Such comments are not welcome here.
The original post reads:

Used this to ship a present to my aunt this morning. If you don't own a parcel scale, even gives discounts on Flat Rate postage (grab FR boxes from your local PO to bring home, or print labels to take into the PO and bring packing fill and tape)—albeit smaller than the typical discounts for weighed & measured postage. Also adds a convenience factor, especially for services that the USPS usually makes you go into a PO to buy (First Class, Media Mail, Parcel Select), because prepaid packages can be scheduled for pickup for free from your home address.

I know it's a small amount of money but I want to do the best thing possible with it as we loved her very much and $500 was a significant amount to her.
So my fiancee (27F) and I (28M) recently joined bank accounts. This is after we bought our house and was mainly my idea. We were sending eachother money for bills and it was just annoying. We both have access to the account, debit cards, all our money goes in and out from said account.
I pay all the bills, and usually know when what is getting taken out. My problem lies when I try to talk to my fiancee about it. Essentially we are trying to save for the wedding and I want to pay off some debt faster and it seems hard to talk about money.
Common things said are “you stress me out” “i work so i can spend it how i want” “you get your stuff, so i can get my stuff”. I am trying to manage all this since someone has to but we are not “struggling” as she says. Obviously right now we don’t have to pay student loans so it seems there is more money and it isnt a big deal, but in the very near future they will be back.

I have made a couple posts, which apparently this person does not like. He/she called me a cunt and then started trolling my page, so I blocked them. But then I find they have sent me a loooong abusive message, which frankly I was surprised that they bothered to put so much effort into. They deleted their username after the message was sent, but I know it’s the same person as they referenced a conversation only we had. Should this just be ignored? Anyone else had this experience?
UPDATE!!! I was contacted by a BSG support manager and I have regained access to my account. Everything is as it was when I lost access, my level 3 bitcoin finished construction.

I sent emails to support, two days later I was asked to provider information to verify my ownership. I supplied the requested information within 30 minutes.

You can imagine how well it’s gone over. She’s yelling and screaming “It’s not fair.” I feel like and asshole, but after reviewing her videos etc, I could not let her keep it. The song choices are beyond inappropriate for younger kids, the dancing isn’t really either. I realize she doesn’t quite understand, but the idea of adults watching my 9 year old freaks me out. She did have it set to private, yet there were still followers on there that I didn’t know or approve of.
So, with the best intentions of being a good parent, I am sitting here being screamed at. “It’s not fair,” “Why?!?!?.” Because I love you. That’s why.
Update: thank you all for your comments/opinions and to the kind person that left an award.
Now that she’s calmed down, we were able to have a real, honest discussion about internet safety and went over the reasons why the app just isn’t ok for her to use. She is now back to happy self, playing a game with her sister.

Im 16 and need a bank account but dont want anyone else having access
So I’m about to start a job at pamda express(first job woohoo) and i need to start a bank account asap. The problem is that most places reuire a parent or family member having access to it. i dont trust anyone to have access to the account, does anyone know a way to make them without sombody else having access?
If it matters im located in California, because idk different countires and states have different laws?
I need a checking and savings for my future plans, going to japan, a more fuel efficient car, and culinary school. So if anyone knows it would be greatly appreciated.
I’m 23 years old, I have about 63k saved in liquid cash. 20k in a HYSA as my emergency fund. About 4K in different stocks using an app. The rest just in my regular bank savings account (I know I know). Part of it is me being an entrepreneur at heart and just wanting the cash ready when I’m ready to start a business and the other half is just he high of seeing the numbers.
I have around 5k in student loans I’ve been paying $60 a month on. No other debts at all. I contribute 6% to my 401k and company matches up to 5%.
I recently got a promotion/raise and am about to start making 90k from make 78k.
How do I get over this “thrill” of seeing the numbers in my bank account and just start investing it in other places. Cause I really don’t need the money on hand any time soon. I might buy a house in ~2years but that’s it. After this raise I know I’ll have a lot of extra cash flow.
Any advice is welcome.

When I was learning programming I started following programming accounts on Instagram, and I learned surprisingly much just from seeing the memes everyday. I do this to almost anything I’m interested in. If there’s a hobby like running which you might not be really hyped to pursue, meme accounts will help remind you in a fun way and motivate you.
From a psychological standpoint I think it might have to do with us wanting to relate and fit in with “the pack”. When we see a group of people having inside jokes about something we don’t know about, we automatically want to learn more. Gl with your hobbies and careers! <3
Edit: Thank you for all the positive feedback and the awards! I’ve seen a lot of comments mentioning the programming subreddits though, as a proof this tip is bad.

Starting a new job and just started the process of enrolling in benefits. My healthcare option is a high-deductible plan with an HSA, into which my employer contributes a small amount (around $1k annually) and I have the option to contribute further, pre-tax.
An HR rep has been trying to convince me to max out my HSA contributions ($3500) due to the triple-tax advantage, and while I get why this is advantageous, I’m a little cautious given it’s a health savings account and can’t be used for other purposes. I already max out my Roth IRA, and I’ll contribute to the employer-sponsored 401k (at least enough to max out the employee match), but what should my next priority be? I don’t have the funds to max out my contributions to all of these accounts; what’s the best order for me to use these accounts as investment holdings?
HSA will be held through a large US-based bank and can be invested in pretty much any common holding if/when the account reaches a $5000 threshold.

First post, please deal with formating. Also sorry if this is obvious, but I have anxiety and need some assurance that I'm not being a massive dick.
INFO: I (19m) come from a lower-middle-class family that consists of just myself and my mother. My girlfriend (19f) comes from an upper-middle-class family with herself, her brother, mother, and father. We're in a long-distance relationship. I canceled cable a long time ago as it was getting really expensive and found it cheaper to have a couple of subscriptions going (such as Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, etc).
A while back, I gave her the password to my Hulu account so she could watch America's Next Top Model because she was stressed about school. Then, when Disney+ came out, I gave her the password to that as well so we could watch Star Wars together.
It was all fine and dandy until I noticed some strange activity on the Disney+ account. I asked her about it and she revealed that she gave her brother the password. Which is fine, I don't mi... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hello my friends,
TLDR is below since I tend to be verbose.
I have a rather puzzling turn of events. I can't find any information regarding how to proceed online because it's such a bass-ackwards situation.
I've been banking with the same bank for 14 years. I am working poor so I've never had more than $3k in my checking account that I can recall. I have a very obvious pattern to my spending habits as I only generally have enough to pay bills so my account is drained pretty much every other week (I get paid bi-weekly.) I just include this info because I feel it's important to the larger picture.
So this morning, I woke up to my alarm and a text alert underneath it from said bank that my account balance is -$537,107.71 (I got paid today). I flipped out, as one might expect, and tried to call the fraud hotline. They conveniently open an hour after I'm already at work where I'm not allowed to have a cell phone. I checked online and was able to access the cancelled check... keep reading on reddit ➡
My fiance gets into boycotts.
He doesnt force me to boycott but I'll get a lot of "how can you play that game after what that company did?" Etc. Even with things that I already own, he thinks continuing to use = support.
His latest issue is with Netflix. Due to current world events, Netflix removed episodes with perceived offence. We shared the account and paid half at points but now the payments would be made by me, which was fine.
I remember speaking to my fiance and agreeing to changing details and payments, email address to make it my account etc. (He says that this agreement didn't occur).
My fiance went a step further, it wasn't about money anymore, he didn't want them to have his data, at all in any way. I did not want to make a new account as my data kept track of everything that I had watched, It let me know when new episodes released and could remember which point I was at of an episode the last time I watched and start me off from there.

To be more precise, that’s 715,827 accounts full of nothing but Spinda and an additional account with 705 extra spaces. To expand on this, a premium home account can store up to 6000 Pokémon, and there are 4,294,967,295 possible Spinda patterns.
Since a premium Pokémon Home account costs £14.39 a year, it would cost £10,300,764.92 a year to maintain all of these accounts. I don’t recommend attempting this, not only for financial reasons, but also because it is unlikely that every possible Spinda has ever actually been encountered.
Edit: as calculated by u/iorvrox, it would take 1362 years to catch all of these, assuming you caught one every 10 seconds and there were somehow no duplicates
