YSK that if you report a scam caller to your phone provider they can block the caller for all numbers on their network

Phone scams are becoming more and more frequent and often the elderly and naive are taken advantage of. If you report a call to your phone provider as a scam, they add the number to their scam file, preventing that person from contacting any numbers they service.

Lads, how the fuck do I report a Scam phone Number? Ring 01 4429808 if you want to speak to the "Revenue Commissioner" (of Pakistan)

Got a Robo call (illegal) from these people pretending to be the Revenue Service (illegal) stating that I owe them money (illegal) and will be sued if I don't pay.

The thing is the number was a Dublin number, which means someone must be paying for it in some format. even if it links back to a call centre in pakistan, someone has an Irish number on the front end and is paying eircom or someone for it

I called back, (risky in case I would be generating money for them) and the guy in thik Pakistani accent wanted my card details(of course)

If you believe this page some people have fallen for this scam:

And yet, form the Garda's website, I can't see a relevant dept to tackle these (I called their internal IT dept for fuck sake) They also point blank don't have an email contact point seemingly expecting me to go to station to report this?

I'm not sure if the data protection commissioner or Comreg are the right people or if there is any point. as what action would they take.

This is a crime, in multiple facets, harming some vulnerable people, with an obvious lead: who/where is the number registered to ... but .. nothing will happen.

Has anyone else seen a sudden increase in spam text messages?

I've been receiving several spam text messages daily, thankfully my phone / provider is marking most of them as spam but it's frustrating that the frequency has spiked.



Thanks for your replies and responses, especially to those who have mentioned the reporting options using 7726.

From Ofcom;

"To report a spam text forward the text to 7726.

You may get an automated response thanking you for the report and giving you further instructions if needed. You will not be charged for sending texts to 7726.

An easy way to remember β€˜7726' is that they are the numbers on your telephone keypad that spell out the word β€˜SPAM'."

I hope that's helpful!



As many (more informed) Redditors have commented, this is likely due to the Facebook data dump from 2019 that has recently been 'scraped'. I used the 'Have I Been Pwned' service to check, and sure enough it seems my phone number was leaked as part of that breach.

The police called me as 14 year old about my car...

This is my first post to Reddit so be gentle lol.

So I just got a call from the "police" about my car. Now I'm 14 years old. I'm sitting in class as I get the call from Unknow number. I watched a lot of scam videos on youtube so I know it's a scam, but I want to play with them. The teacher arent here so I have time. So I take the call and I say the best line I have ever said: You called the local sperm bank, you jerk it we serve it. Now just a quick note. I'm from Denmark, so if it was the police they would talk danish. But what I hear is "pardon?" in English, not a danish accent but instead a Nigerian typical scammer accent. I say the line again since she said pardon. Again I'm 14, so this humor is fun to me lol. Anyway, she goes on to ask me if I have a white car, and I just say yes. She then asks me where it is, and I quickly say "up in my ass" and then hang the phone up. Now at this point, I'm laughing my ass off, but 1 min later I see I have an unheard voicemail. I listen to it and it's her again in English with this nigeran accent that tells me not to joke with the police. So yea I just got called by the "police" about my car....

Artwork by absolute legend u/Bye_Triangle

The focus of the sub from now until June 9 is going to be VOTING

We don't make claims about catalysts around here. So I'm definitely NOT telling you that this could be the catalyst.

But the importance of exercising your right to vote cannot be understated. THIS IS OUR ONE SHOT TO PROVE TO THE SEC AND EVERYONE ELSE WHAT IS HAPPENING. GAMESTOP NEEDS OUR HELP!!

Fidelity users, TDA, WeBull, Vanguard, Schwab, and more all reported being able to get their hands on their control number and vote as of yesterday. Feel free to drop a comment below if you have already voted and want to show that off!! WE ARE GIVING AWAY VOTED STICKERS (FLAIRS) TO EVERYONE THAT HAS VOTED!! πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€

Be sure to check your inbox and contact your broker if you have any questions. And also be sure that if you have multiple brokerages accounts, you will need to get a different control number for each one. So if you carry shares in 3 different brokerage accounts (I do, cuz I don't trust a bitch) then you will have 3 different control numbers and will be voting 3 different times.

Steps to Voting:


Obtained from your broker, not to be shared with anyone. This number should be confidential.


Do not input your control number unless you are 100% sure that the site is legit.


Take a moment to see what the board recommends you vote for if you are unsure. This community can not tell you how to vote, only you can decide that.



Gamestop's Board of Directors is urging everyone to vote as soon as possible.

Serious Question: Why us nothing being done about the increasing amount of phone scamming attempts?

I am wanted for tax fraud. My National Insurance Number has been cancelled. I'm wanted for illegal activities on the northern Welsh border. Not to mention the dozen or so car crashes I've been involved in. And all of this just this year.

There doesn't seem to be anywhere to report them. There's very little awareness being raised about them. No political party or news agency seems to pay attention to it. I've got to the point of ignoring all calls from numbers I don't known . But this isn't right, some calls could be important and we won't receive them. Not to mention that people might still fall victim to this, otherwise I doubt this scams would be so popular.

Sorry for the rant, it's just getting a bit exasperating.

TurboTax caught someone trying to file my taxes

Hi all, I have used TurboTax in recent years to do my taxes, both the web and desktop versions. Yesterday I received an email from TurboTax that they caught someone trying to file my taxes, they gave me a number to call. The customer support confirmed that someone created a new TurboTax account and tried to file my return, they said it was caught early enough that no damage will be done. They told me I will have to file my federal return on paper, and fill out a IRS FORM 14039 - Identity Theft Affidavit. They didnt seem to share any more info or what the implications are.

It doesnt make much sense why scammers would use TurboTax Online to file and not some more obscure platform but anyway, any suggestions on what else to look for or things I can do with the IRS ?

I keep pretty close tabs on my credit report, so I dont think there are any other red flags.

Scammer pretending to be my great aunt

My relative, an aunt of some sort, sent me a message through Messenger. I stupidly wasn’t paying close enough attention and gave them my phone number and only when they started texting me did I realize it was not her. The scammer has created an Instagram with her name and photo and is contacting all her family and friends. They want me to contact a specific attorney to apply for a government grant which of course I’m not gonna do. Their texts have started getting more aggressive the longer I delay. What’s even weirder is they’ve gone to some lengths to try to impersonate her.

My poor aunt is getting all these people contacting her telling her about this and I have no idea how many people the scammer is in touch with as her. It pisses me off that someone is using her like this. I’d like to contact law enforcement but not sure how to do so. I live in another state. Do I contact my state? Her state? Some federal list?

Dealing with Scam Calls - PLEASE Call the Cops On Me

So this happened a year or two ago (2018/2019), on my home phone number. I'll admit a YouTube r/slash video reminded me of this IDWHL, and I think it is a wholesome and appropriate story to share (not your typical IDWHL, I hope you enjoy it anyways).

Like most of us with a land line (cheaper than TV/Internet in my northeast US region, don't judge) I was getting a TON of spam calls. All about my car warranty (which I never had/purchased), my wife's student loans (who never went to college), IRS collections, energy sales, etc. - you name it they called.

Well we decided to start picking up and harassing the scammers - BIG MISTAKE. They don't take you off their call lists, instead they start to spoof your number so that YOUR NUMBER shows on caller ID for everyone they call. It got so bad that we changed our VM from 'Hi, you've reached the [OP's last name], please leave a message!" to "If you received a call from us and don't recognize our number, it is a scam. Please report this to local police, as we have reported it to our police and nothing has changed. Scammers are taking us all, and nothing will change if we ignore the calls"

YES, it was that bad. We were receiving 10+ voicemails per day, most threatening 'STOP F'ING CALLING', 'GO F A [insert racial slur animal here]', 'I'M CALLING THE POLICE', etc.

We turned off our ringer, disconnected our phone so only our fax machine/printer picked up and hoped for the best to no avail, thus I started the IDWHL approach:

I had a few calls that I picked up during this timeframe, and the IDWHL calls were surprisingly wholesome. A typical call transcript (paraphrased, of course) is below:

[Phone rings]

Me: Hello?


Me: Hey, I know this isn't what you expect, but I think you have been had by scam calls. They are spoofing my number to call you, and I've reported it to my local police. I made the mistake of answering and trying to give them a hard time, so now they spoof my number to call others and punish me. You can Google it and verify my story, just don't answer their calls no matter what you do. Please also call your local police and report my number and the calls so we can get these calls to stop. My name is [OP's first name] and I live in [town, state]. I am just as sick of these calls as you are. PLEASE REPORT MY NUMBER TO YOUR POLICE. Maybe then there will be some legislature or pressure on the phone companies to stop this nonsense.

Caller: Oh, hey, sorry, I just g

Topic of Discussion- The SEC

Securities and Exchange Commission

THE SEC for Superstonk- Script By Lucy Komisar

When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.” — FrΓ©dΓ©ric Bastiat, 19th century French Economist

How the SEC was created

One reason for the stock market collapses in 1929 was watering stock. A meme went β€œhe who sells what isn’t his’n must pay it back or go to prison.” Traders would print up counterfeit stock certificates. Sound familiar. Naked short selling. The crash that started the depression.

Ferdinand Pecora

1932 Ferdinand Pecora was an immigrant working class kid from Sicily who put himself through New York Law School. He was hired in 1932 by the Senate Banking Committee to investigate the causes of the crash, to do a whitewash, but he didn’t get the memo. His hearings exposed such practices as pools to support bank stock prices. Such as Let’s all coordinate trades to pump up the stock. Sound familiar? GameStop? National City Bank (now Citibank) had hidden bad loans by packaging them into securities and selling them off to unwary investors. Sound familiar? Mortgage-backed securities that tanked? And that the bank sellers knew would tank?

The findings of the Pecora Commission exposing corruption of the financial industry let to public support for regulation, -- it took really dirty stuff to move the pubic -which would be the Glass–Steagall Banking Act of 1933, the Securities Act of 1933, and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. That last set up the SEC.

If you're a Chinese stuck in Serbia and planned on buying tickets through a "ticket agent" - don't do it. This is the method they use so you know what to do (how I got scammed for almost 2000 euros, explained in detail)

Warning! Asking for advice against the scammer!

I don't know what the law enforcement is like, but in case there are foreigners reading this, or people who can assist me, please do, because I am stranded without a single dime in Serbia now because of this.

I have posted the chatlog here and the payments made (in Chinese)

I also have the person's ID card scan, an overweight male born in July 19, 1997, Liaoning province, as we have met two times and he let me take a picture of it, once in Belgrade, and once in Jagodina (where there are other scandals, it would seem..).

I am a 44 year old woman from China and have been stranded abroad due to COVID for more than a year, and finally working odd jobs here and there I came up with the money necessary to pay for my way back, and for better or worse decided to trust someone who had been vouched by others in this WeChat (Chinese equivalent of paypal, facebook, instagram..everything) group. You might not know, but Chinese people are in a difficult position as it is hard to get vaccinated abroad, as well as get the green code ( a permit necessary to board the planes going to China). Furthermore, we must do both PCR and antigen tests in both the country of departure and the country through which the flight goes through, as Serbia does not have a direct flight to China, this is usually through Frankfurt or Zurich. This can cost upwards of 200 euros just for the second testing in 48 hours.

Upon paying him the agreed amount, he will give you a booking reference number (my flight was a Lufthansa flight, via Frankfurt, on May 3rd, to Shanghai), which you can then check online, thinking it is legit. However, a few days after, the booking does not appear to be valid anymore, which is what he thinks most people will not check - the flight showed up as valid, and you can even add your data to it online, but it will not be valid only a mere 3 days afterwards. I paid for my flight almost a week ago to him, using Chinese payment method, WeChat pay, April 20th. Around 4PM Serbian time.

The way they do this scam is that they book a flight using an almost empty credit card through a third party website such as momondo or skyscanner, not directly. The spot is reserved for them on the plane, but they do not have to pay anything. They can make as many as they want, and they usually last for 24-48 hours unti

The GME Wargame: A New Theory of Everything (My Final DD) πŸ’—πŸ¦πŸ’πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€

Nothing in my post should be assumed to accuse anyone of anything.

This is my theory of everything. My Charlie Day-DD. This is, I think, the blueprint for getting us through these last few agonizing days. Sorry, it's walls of text, but I think you'll enjoy reading it.

This will be the only meme.

Me looking in the mirror

This is in all likelihood my final statement on the matter until new information comes to light. I've been working on it since the evening of 4/19 and it is enough to carry me through to the squeeze. I hope others will pick up where I left off, hack it apart, fill it in, and improve it, but I think I am done producing DD. I'll be around to talk about it though.

I could never leave this community. I am 34 hours into writing this and it’s the longest I haven’t checked new posts reddit in months. Can’t wait to see what I have missed. For the past three months, I wake up and log in and don’t log out until I sleep.

I’m also exercising more, eating better, and have had the most generally positive outlook on life that I can ever remember having. All of that wrapped up in a community whose values I love, which is far different from the communities I grew up in, and of whom I genuinely feel a welcome part. I have cared for and felt protective of and protected by members of the community. Then, there is the dream that I will finally be able to spend my time how I choose for the rest of my life. These are my emotional connections to the rest of you Apes.

That said, this is my bet on everything.

War for the Reddit of the Apes

There is a key point we have been missing that explains pretty much everything, but as usual it requires a fuckton of words to get to it. If I’m right, I expect I’ll know sooner rather than later.

I have pages of evidence and dozens of screenshots that I will curate and release as necessary, but I’m doing my best to protect individuals’ privacy. I think what I’m posting here will give you the tools to draw your own conclusions.

Standard Disclaimer: Never trust anyone on the internet. I hope this will spark some interesting discussion and help Apes understand what is to come in the next few days or weeks. All I know is when I started thinking this way it explained everything from the market behavior to what’s been happening in our communities since January.

I've been scammed

I'm 22 years old. I was selling a phone on eBay when a buyer contacted me to buy the phone outright. I sent a request on PayPal to his provided details and recieved an email that stated the payment was complete but I needed to show confirmation I sent the package to receive the money. Upon reflection this was so obviously a scam email but I was blinded by the need to get the phone out of my possession and the money in my pocket. The fake PayPal email requested me to send a photo of my license and I stupidly did. Long story short i sent the phone and recieved no payment which I am obviously annoyed at but the real issue that has me terrified is that they have a photo of my license. They have no other details such as banking or passwords, but I'm still immensely scared about this. I have reported this police and filed a report of scam watch websites. The officer said he would file a request to a department that deals with matters like these and I would get a call in a few days. All in all I'm scared for my future financial security and am wondering what steps I should take as I'm extremely scared and anxious.

Coco Sneakers Our apology for recent information leak issues

Hi friends,

As many of you know, recently our website was victim of a cyber attack which resulted in loss of stored information and a glitch that allowed random login to stored accounts.

First of all, we want to apologize for our negligence which resulted in such a vulnerability in our website. We thought the security was good and it did not have a problem for years, but we now know it was not good enough. Thankfully no serious information like payment details, identity verification photos, or similar was lost. This is because we only handle this type of information on WhatsApp (end to end encryption)

Based on what we now know about the incident, the perpetrator likely premeditated their attack, and targeted us specifically for the purposes of stealing information or causing panic and loss of trust amongst our customers. They attacked our website perhaps to obtain information and send messages even call you to attempt scams. We also believe their aim is to ruin our reputation. This is terrible, unethical behaviour and we are sorry if some of you get contacted and harassed because of our mistake and the attacker’s evil purposes. Due to our negligence, we have caused trouble to everyone. Here we sincerely apologize to you and hope we can overcome this issue quickly.

Important: If you receive any information from unfamiliar number, please contact us immediately for verification. We have seen report of at least one customer being called or text message on their cell phone number, then trying to get tricked into paying money to the scammer for a β€œgiveaway” pair of shoes. The scams attempts have been unsuccessful so far. Please do not anyone else be tricked into it! We will never talk to you from an unknown number and ask you to pay money.

Warning: gangsters buying cars on Be careful!

Long post. Please read if you plan on selling your car online.

I got entangled in a relatively dangerous situation today and I wanted to post this to warn/advise people.

My car had broken down and the repair cost was not worth it to me (probably sounds familiar). I posted an ad on and wihin minutes someone from a car dealership that I will not explicitly name (they were from Beringen) called me to offer twice the asking price since they 'specialized in my type of car' and thus could repair it cheaply. I agreed to meet him on the parking lot near my house with my half-broken car (thank god I did not let him on my property).

He came over and to my surprise it was not just him, but he had brought TWO buddies along (without face-masks) in a clear move of intimidation, as I would later find out.

No tow truck, which I found odd, since they needed that to move the car properly. They assured me the tow truck was on its way. (It wasn't)

After already agreeing on a price on the phone they tried every move to get a better deal. Let me tell you some of the tricks they tried to pull, so you are warned:

  • one of his buddies calls me and plays another potential buyer, who will then imply that the offer was 'really high' (I know this, because both phone numbers are on their website)

  • 'I thought this was a diesel, you should've told me it wasn't' (actually yelling this, as if it somehow was my fault)

  • It's not that valuable because of ... (Scuff marks, km's, anything) (regular car salesman bullsh*t)

  • 'you don't have the repair/workshop history on paper? You should've included this' (or anything they can nag about)

  • They were yelling and repeating the same thing over and over just to tire me out, trying to catch me on agreeing something.

FEEL FREE TO WALK AWAY FROM THE SALE AT THIS POINT. IT IS NOT WORTH IT. I didn't, because after some stubbornness from my side (and driving away from the parking lot, after which they ACTUALLY FOLLOWED ME HOME) they offered the agreed upon price.

Oh, boy was I wrong.

They suddenly wanted to have the sale signed on paper, so he pulled out a crumpled piece of notebook paper from his pocket and asked me for a pen. They were happy to go into my house with me to get a pen. (um, yeah, fuck that) I asked a friend of mine to bring us a pen. It was the most unprofessional thing I had ever seen.


It turned out they didn't even have the cash AT ALL. He offered me a fraction of it, and to pay me in full when the tow

Help!! GEICO low balling on insurance payout

Located in NY State. Been having a hellish experience with geico after being in an accident that was my fault in which the car was totalled.

The car is a fully loaded 435i xdrive manual which goes for $25-35k. This spec is so rare that I had to ship it from kansas when I bought it last fall. If you look online there is only one example in the entire country for sale at the moment and does not even have all the options that my car has.

Geico offered me a CCC offer of $15,100 before deductible and the adjuster had a very hard time understanding the value even after I sent some partially comparable vehicles (not even all the options mine had and are still going for $30k+). After it was obvious I won't get anywhere with the adjuster, I spoke to his supervisor, who also just avoided every question I asked and had no valid explanation for the low price. He also refused to send comparable values.

I then spoke to HIS supervisor for 2 weeks straight and I received many threats to have the car towed away from the body shop to the auction. I had to ask the body shop to refuse the car from being picked up by the tow truck which they luckily were understanding of. I'm not getting anywhere with this geico worker and am losing hope but I know for a fact I will not allow them to scam me out of my car like that. I just want a reasonable offer and to move on to another vehicle. They lied multiple times asking me to provide comparable vehicles saying they'll adjust the price but nothing, not even a dollar. And there is no explanation.

They said they called dealers in the area and that's what the dealer will pay for the car. With no proof or numbers. They just dance around every question I ask and show no way of how they arrived at $15.1k. They won't budge even one dollar!

I'm horrible at expressing my frustrations and tend to be a very polite talker on the phone but in reality I'm extremely frustrated and angry. On top of this I've been dealing with Covid for the past two weeks. They also cancelled my rental after 13 days (I have 30 day rental coverage) with no way for me to return the car since I am in isolation. (Update: was able to get reimbursed for the rental and had it extended to full 30 days after supervisor approval)

I honestly kinda wish I was one of those people who scream into the phone but can't bring myself to do it lol. I'm too nice and it sucks. I was always taught to be polite even in tough situations and that making threats and yelling won't get you

Was I scammed or is this legit?

I got a call from a place called Origin collections saying I owed a debt of 3k to Bank of America or America Bank from a personal cash advance I took out- I never have and have never banked with that bank. They had my name, driver's license, and number the last four of my social and told me the numbers. I don't know what to do and believe my identity was stolen. They said they are going to report to all three credit bureaus in 72hours and I said okay? And they said laugh all you want this isn't funny, you really don't care about your credit? It won't be funny when it shows up on your credit. Kind of lost at what to do. I have just barely gotten out of debt and then get hit with this. I don't know how I will fight this if they have all of my information. Thank you.

New scam and where to report it?

Hi everyone,

New day new scams.

So I got a call from someone saying they are from Myntra and that I have received a gift for yesterday's purchase from Myntra. (I didn't make any purchases yesterday. Only received a delivery). They had my phone number name and address in full which is kind of scary.

So anyway I took this prank forward and here is how it went:

  1. You get to choose one out of the 5 top end gifts: a Sony Bravia, a Voltas AC, a laptop etc.

  2. You need to make a purchase of 5000 on Myntra while on call

  3. You get 50% cashback out of this purchase also.

  4. The payment only needs to be done via UPI or netbanking of SBI or ICICI (they offer funds transfer without adding a beneficiary in advance)

  5. You need to make the transfer while on call itself

Now I have their bank account details (account number, IFSC). And also a call recording.

I have already marked their number as SCAM on truecaller.

What else can I do with this information?

Edit: I didn't make the fund transfer just to be clear.

Royal Mail scam texts.... what are they all about?

Alright all/shwmae,

I (like many others) have received the Royal Mail scam text where a parcel is supposedly waiting for delivery. Being the age I am I think I'm at a much lower risk of falling for these.

However, I'm also a journo student in Cardiff and looking to do a short radio piece for an (internal) assessment on the topic. I'd really like to talk to victims, fraud charities and the RM themselves to get a general scope of the picture. Also I'd really love to get an idea where they're originating from. Would be great if anybody might be able to help!

Synopsis for 04-01-2021 what we need to know before the market opens DD

Good morning San Diago,

I am Rensole,

Kenny phone call, it's from Asia...

*insert flashy intro card*

none of this is financial advice.

First let's get some things out of the way, tomorrow is "Good friday" this means that tomorrow the markets will be closed.

This means that today is the last day of trading of this week.

FTD numbers

I'd like to thank u/SituationGoood for posting this for us.

the numbers Mason...

as you can see it's still cyclical so it seems their MO has not changed

and like always... this just means to stay the course hold and go on.

The ETF rebalance

These are the ETFS that rebalanced yesterday. I have not had time personally to check out if any of these had GME in them, so sorry for that.

Some comments have said that there are where no GME in these

Fake reddit messages

Also something that seems to be cropping up is a new shill tactic of sending people on here fake messages acting like they are from reddit themselves.

Remember these are not messages from reddit themselves and if you receive these kinds of messages you should report them to reddit themselves immediately

Remember Reddit staff will never ask you to take any monetary action, or ask you to liquidate any holdings. because this is none of their business.

If reddit chooses to end your account or ban you, you'll get banned. its never followed with "but if you pay X" or "if you sell X" this is not how Reddit functions
