Revival of the Gift Card Scam

Post by Publisher » Sat Jun 20, 2020 5:41 am

Dont fall for this **cow excrement**.

1. Hot woman suddenly appears on the scene.
2. Wants paid by CashApp, PayPal, or with gift cards because "Ive been robbed doing cash"
A. May want a prepaid deposit, from $20 to the full rate.
B. Before giving you the location.
3. Gives you hotel address, wants numbers off the cards before gives the room number.

Then poof - youve been scammed.

HUGE resurgence of this going on.

The ones wanting a $30-40 "travel deposit" for an alleged local appointment are using tits as a tin cup gathering change, and are too lazy to create content for a fan site. Avoid this crap, too.

Just posted about this very thing on another thread Seems as if they are all doing this, that trying to find one who will accept cash payment is like a needle in a haystack. What’s going on here? Time for a mass boycott. If this starts hitting them in the pocketbook then maybe things will change. They will say they’ve been robbed. But we can say that all they need to do is put it away in a safe place where no one can find it. Another line they’ll come up with is that they have been dealt fake bills. Don’t believe I have ever handled one of them in my entire lifetime. We need to bring a stop to this craziness, don’t you think?

Imagine if you had found GBN a weeks earlier; you could have avoided that. This is where the value of a site like GBN really comes through with the information that is available.

Most of these scams are originating in Eastern Europe and the Indian subcontinent. Many are local scammers.
