    I've decided to create this thread so we can share experiences and stories about how we detected a scam and avoided it.

    Every little story helps, so don't be shy and help BHW family.

    This type of scams get alot of attention but its nothing compared to what the big global companies are doing to the average consumer daily. Companies collude to fix prices of raw materials and goods and services so you pay more, banks fix lending rates so you pay more, politicians claim excessive expenses and waste money on stupid projects all thanks to taxes they collected from you and worse they send you or someone you know to fight, kill and be killed in wars all about making a profit from oil and gas contracts!!!

    If you go to the brazillian goverment website you can check everything that is bought with taxes money, some nice itens are

    A hammer - $ 40.000
    A microphone - $ 20.000
    A toilet - $ 75.000

    Probably politicians didn't noticed that the brazillian currency hyperinflation ended on the 90's :D

    Not exactly a scam but I wanted to buy a voucher for 1 year spotify premium and the seller claimed it will show up as premium for a month and it will 'renew' itself, he showed me a screenshot and I never went on with the deal, he even got banned, a sl is there.

    I could go on an on about all of the times i got scammed. One that comes to mind, years ago i got a few servers from a guy i met on a forum i paid him via paypal.

    Long story short there was a crisis in the mailing community (the only reason i even dealt with someone i didnt know well) and there was a shortage on servers. They were going down as fast as you could get them (then honey pot checkers were invented and the crisis was over). Anyways i paid the guy 2500$ and it all ended up being a scam.

    The guy would give you a login to a test server. If you like, then send half the money, he gives you login to the all the servers after "set up" you send the rest of the money. After he was sent all the money he actually gave me logins to all the servers, kept me happy for a few days. Then they all went down. Few days later ithey all come back up BUT i wasnt able to login.

    This is when i learned a very important lesson about paypal. Always mark "good" and not service. I market service and could not dispute it. Had i marked it good he would have had to send proof that he shipped something to me and i signed for it.. Really tho that was the last time i used paypal.

    They make roadways that should be 40 mph into 30 mph, then post traffic cops to hand out speeding tickets. It's ALL corrupt.
