2020.09.30 01:33 AggressiveChairs I think my international student housemate is getting catfished.

So, after first year of uni I agreed to rent a house with a friend from my course and a guy he knows. We didn't know anyone else who still needed a place, so we looked on our find a flatmate facebook page for the uni. We found this dude who is an international student from Hong Kong who speaks English as a third language, and he seemed nice enough so we invited him to the house.
It turns out his english... isn't great. It's not really a problem, and he's still funny to have the odd conversation with, but it can get a confusing when we need to tell him important things (we're having plumbing issues at the moment and he doesn't really get why we're telling him to not use the shower).
He's also obssessed with getting a boyfriend. He asks if we think he looks good enough to attract someone, constantly talks about how it sucks being single, and asks if we know any good dating apps a lot. He doesn't seem to have many hobbies, but he tells me that he enjoys writing "essays" (???) to help look for his "scientific boyfriend".
The last important bit is that the dude has money. He has the latest iphone, a really expensive laptop, clearly spends a lot on clothes, and he paid the whole year of rent straight away. He hasn't told us details on it but it's pretty obvious his parents are well off as he doesn't even have a part time job. As well as that, there's no loans for international students in the UK, so he would have had to pay an inflated uni price straight up.
Anyway, cue the mysterious new friend he's met online. The last few days all he has talked about is his new "American Friend" (???/m). They met online on an app I don't recognise. Apparently they share hobbies like "science" and "we are both smart". They have been talking 24/7 for the last two weeks, and American Friend has expressed interest in wanting to visit this Christmas.
So... The very rich housemate has suddenly found someone who apparently he is already great friends with in only two weeks, who wants to visit this christmas during a global pandemic? I don't think Americans can even do that right now. The guy can apparently speak at all times of the day disregarding time zones. Housemate tells me they talk a lot but I'm yet to hear any actual info about him. You see the issue, right? "Aaagh, my flight has been moved and I need to pay $600 to get it now... if you pay it I'll pay you back!" It' doesn't seem unlikely that something like this will play out, and I'm not convinced my housemate will realise it's a scam.
The problem is, my housemate struggles to understand stuff like asking him not to walk around the house in tight boxers all the time. I have no idea how I'll explain what a catfishing scam is. He's pretty naive about a lot of things (No, I don't think he's "stupid" because of the language barrier. I'd provide more examples but this post is long) and I'm not sure he'd get what I'm telling him. What should I do?? Do you think the uni can help??
tl;dr: My housemate speaks little english and I think he's being catfished. I don't know how to explain to him that he might be getting scammed and I'm pretty sure he'll fall for it. What do I do?

2020.09.29 23:06 Rain_and_snow Is this job a scam?

I googled the company and it is a real company operating out if Italy. The red flags to me are that they are paying with a paper check mailed to me. (I know I need to be careful of the fake check scam) and the hired me way to easily. 2 phone calls and a couple of emails. I asked if there were any costs to me and they said 'nothing at all" I googled the person and there are a lot of people by that name. The company has been around for a longtime and appears legit.
From: HER EMAIL Subject: Construction Advisor position. Description of the training period. Date: September 29, 2020 at 2:15:35 PM EDT To: MY EMAIL
Dear MY NAME, In this email I will try to explain you everything about the position you applied for and our future training process, should you be officially hired to work in our company. Please review it carefully because, first and foremost, it will give you a better idea of what to expect from your employment with us, and also it will help us discuss the position more smoothly during the interview stage. Your responsibilities and duties: Your duties will be various of course, but most definitely the priority is always working with customers. Our customers are both individuals as well corporate customers, but mostly we deal with corporate customers since our company works in the sphere of international real estate and construction and emphasis is given on corporate aspect always. All customers you will be dealing with are US based but they are looking to build various premises in Europe which is exactly our speciality. And by the way, for your information, you do not have to find customers, it will never be your duty because we will be giving you leads, that is a list of customers who are already interested. Thus, you will be always working with hot leads, which makes it much easier for you. All communication with customers is virtual, i.e. over the phone and by email. Briefly, the process of working with a client looks as follows: once you are given information about a new client, you need to get in touch with the customer in order to find out what exactly the customer is interested in, first of all, you need to find out the criteria that the company will need in order to start working on that project in future. This list of questions will be given to you, and usually we need the same formation every time time (e.g. the size of the building, the type of the building (residential or non-residential), the average price that the customer expects to pay, the time frames that we are given and so on). Then you need to compare the customer's criteria with the list of services that our company provides in order to make sure that it will be feasible for us at least. At this stage you also need to consult the customer, answer all customer's questions and make sure that the customer is given all the information that they are looking for. In case you managed to, so to say, persuade the customer to use our services, the customer will sign the agreement with us, pay the start-up fee and it's called a closure. Then you will have to take this order, file a report to the construction department and they will take it from here, that is from that point that customer is no longer your responsibility. Mind that we start working on a project only after the advance payment from the customer is received. Until the payment is received, it is not a closure for you and you are not eligible for your commission. All in all, you will be working with customers only at the entry level, when you need to consult them, cater for their needs and take their orders. Apart from your main task, i.e. working with customers as such, you will also be in charge of: - consulting customers about our prices, sales, discounts, etc.; - leading each customer from the very beginning of the process with them till the very closure, making sure their payments are safely received and our company gets the information about their order; - collecting data; - filing reports; - data analysis; - publishing advertisements online; - creating advertisements; - escorting payments from customers and making sure their transactions are safely received by our financial officer; - other various assignments in order to increase your knowledge about real estate and construction sphere. One more thing: since working with customers requires primary skills and qualification, at first you will not be allowed to work with customers directly. Initially, I am going to give you less difficult tasks, just for you to get used to it and increase your knowledge about the real estate business. Then I will be increasing their difficulty and volume, and only eventually you will start working with customers yourself. During your probationary period I will be in charge of your training, so I will be the one who will be giving you your assignments, the information about customers, and all other information that you will need in order to complete your tasks. I'll be definitely giving you all instructions how to do everything, just for you to better understand the process, but in case you need my help or you have questions you may call me, text me or email me. I usually work from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST Monday-Friday, so this is the time frame when you can call me. As far as your schedule goes, it will fluctuate because the position that you've taken is only part time, so on average you will be working from 6 to 15 hours per week. It depends on how many orders we have and how many customers we need to process. Moreover, because it is part time your schedule is flexible, that is you may work whenever it's convenient for you, and personally I don't mind when exactly you will be working as long as you manage to meet the deadlines. Payment structure: As for your compensation, it consists of the salary and additional commission, so it's salary + commission. The salary is $3,000.00 per month, it's always paid monthly by paper check which is mailed to you. The salary is paid every month on the same day when you are hired, i.e. every 30 days. Your commission is 7%% from each successful deal. i.e. from each closure that you have with your customers. But the commission is paid separately, it's not paid together with the salary, it's paid to you every time you have a closure. So once again, the salary is monthly and the commission is throughout the month, so it's up to you. Besides, I should remind you that since this is 1099 employment, both the salary and the commission are before taxes, and you do your taxes yourself. 1099 tax form will be forwarded to you once a year, when it is time to report taxes. Please bear in mind that during the training period you are paid the same salary and the same commission as always. The only difference is that you will be working under my supervision for me to help you master necessary set of skills. Benefits package: As far as the employment agreement goes, you will have the following benefits: - 20 days of paid vacation a year; - all state holidays (such as Independence Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving and so on) are always days-off, so we never work on holidays and we never call customers on holidays because it's not professional; - unfortunately, the company does not provide you with medical insurance because the position is only part-time, but instead of the insurance you will be paid $3,000.00 a year like one-time payment, so it goes instead of the insurance. It is paid once a year, as a rule, in December. This concludes the description of your future terms and conditions of the employment with us. Mind that should you decide to join our team, you will have to strictly follow all these regulations. Once you finish reading this email, please email me back or call me so that we can discuss everything. I will be waiting. Thank you!
Sincerely, Special Client Manager Her Name tel: Her Phone # (Ohio Area Code) Company that appear legit from Italy Monday-Friday 10am-6pm EST

2020.09.29 23:05 JoeyCAV831 Girl tryed to blackmail me over Skype last night.

So I had decided to check out the dating site Ashley Madison. I started talking with a couple different girls on there and it was getting exciting. They just want discreet, casual fun. So one girl convinced me to text her. I set up one of those burner number apps and start exchanging texts back and forth. She then convinces me to Skype her. I was hesitant at first but that was the only way I could see her nude. So I said fuck it, ill do it. I never use Skype so I created an account real quick with my main email, that I use for everything. So when you create an account it fills in everything with your full name. I got rid of my last name for the username. Then called her up. She was hot and got naked instantly. I was still weird and shy about the whole situation. She kept pushing me wanting to see more of me. Asking for more light, different angles of me, etc. Then all of a sudden her screen was a recording of me. She typed out a message saying "You have 2 minutes to decide, give me money or this gets posted on Facebook for all your family to see" My heart dropped and I was in shock. I didn't know what to say. Then another message appears " You think im playing around" and started naming people I didn't know. I was confused. It hit me that she didn't have my profile up. I never heard of any of these people. Then she messaged "all your family and co-workers will see this if you dont pay up". I just ended the call, blocked her real quick. Then I realized my Skype ID name was my Gmail account, which happens to be my full name. So in a panic I just googled my Gmail and my LinkedIn and Facebook profile popped right up. So I quickly went to Facebook and made everything as private as I can. Can't view my friends, can't tag me in anything, only I can see my timeline. Then quickly went to LinkedIn where it has my actual phone number and resume up. That was easier to make private. Then kept double, triple checking my Facebook settings. Making sure I made no mistakes. It was around 12am and in a panic I kept checking the settings. Then went to my Gmail account and kept monitoring and making sure nothing unusual is happening to my account. I just was waiting and waiting. If it got posted I want to be able to report it asap.
But its been alittle over 12 hours since and so far its been all quiet. Im not sure if she even got my Skype/Gmail account name. There are only 15- 20 people with the same name as me. So she could find me easily. Im just hoping she didn't see it. I read up on other victims to this scam and they would be harassed for weeks. So let's see how this plays out. I put an alert if my name gets Googled.

2020.09.29 22:24 LittleSpice1 TIFU by accidentally not paying Amazon for „midnight sun“ on kindle

Okay so this unfolded today, when I opened some mail that had arrived while I was on vacation for the last two weeks. One of the letters told me to pay 40€ to Amazon, because I hadn’t paid a bill. I thought it was a scam, but looked through my Amazon account anyway just to be sure. I couldn’t find anything, so I looked on the letter what they were claiming I hadn’t paid. And there it was: Midnight sun. 11€, but with fees for their law firm I now owed them over 40€. After I looked further into it and chatted with customer service, I found out I had a second Amazon account, which my kindle is linked to. I had changed my payment info on my frequently used Amazon account, but not the one I had entirely forgot existed. So TIFU and had to pay over 40€ for a shitty book that I just read to know what the memes and tweets are all about. Also since I was on holidays I’m now past the date I should’ve paid the 40€, but I hope they’ll receive it soon enough so that I don’t have to pay even more for the mistake of reading midnight sun. I take this as a hint, no Stephenie Meyer anymore for me.
TL;DR: I forgot about my second Amazon account my kindle is linked to and now have to pay >40€ for Stephenie Meyers „midnight sun“.

2020.09.29 20:59 gorhrut VA fiduciary dept horror show

firstly, i apologize for any formatting issues. i have no idea how to properly handle that on here.

some info before i get into it:
I did 4 years in the Air Force as security forces. I was medically discharged due to a bipolar disorder and several other issues. I was rated quite highly through the VA. since my departure from the military, i have owned and sold a home, am financially stable, and have excellent credit. I am capable of leading a perfectly healthy life if i remain mostly at home. out in the world, i struggle.

jan/14/2020:
The VA schedules me for a c&p exam through qtc medical group. the meeting goes about as well as one can expect from these kinds of appointments, but i fully expect to have my rating lowered, as i appear to be quite capable of handling my responsibilities.

ap02/2020:
VA sends a letter informing me that they received information indicating that my disability prevents me from managing my benefits, and are deciding whether i need a fiduciary to manage them for me. also in this letter is a statement informing me that should that be determined to be accurate, i would also lose my 2nd amendment rights.

may/11/2020:
I send response VA form 21-4138, along with bank statements, credit score, and a letter of support from someone who is quite familiar with my situation. I also inform the va that it was my intention to include a letter from a mental health professional, but i could not get an appointment scheduled(during the covid pandemic) within their deadline.

july/21/2020:
VA sends response letter saying they have asked the medical facility nearest me to schedule an examination. according to this letter, they are supposed to notify me of a date, time, and place. basically sit and wait.

sep/3/2020:
after noticing on ebenefits that i had missed an appointment, that i was never informed of, I sent an online inquiry to the va asking for a deadline extension, explaining that i had to now set up my own exam. so, i went about doing so, but i apparently had to be set up with a primary doctor before they could refer me to a mental health professional. that appointment was set up for sep/21.

sep/09/2020:
VA responds to inquiry, saying there were attempts made to contact me(never received a single email/letter).

sep/21/2020:
appointment with primary doc goes well. says i need a blood panel first and then they will set up an appointment with mental health.

sep/28/2020:
VA fiduciary dept calls. they tell me i have 4 weeks to get an appointment and have evidence in support of my dispute in to them. I call my local va asking how quickly they can get me in. they say blood draw needs to happen first, so its not sounding like i would meet the deadline. I call the VA for a much larger city about an hour and a half away requesting an appointment. earliest they can get me in is november 2.

This has been an extremely stressful and trying situation and i have no idea how to deal with it. I dont care if the va wanted to limit my rating, but i do not feel i deserve to have rights taken away. I have handled myself without issue for 6 years since separation without a fiduciary. what could possibly require one now?

Since this whole process began, neither ebenefits nor va.gov has reflected that this fiduciary process is ongoing. initially i was worried it was some kind of info phishing scam, but since there have been replies to official inquiries, i dont think thats the case.

tldr: fighting the VA about the requirement of a fiduciary despite being perfectly capable of handling my own benefits for the past 6 years. feel lost and defeated by the process.

2020.09.29 19:07 Know_Coiner WHAT IS YFFS FINANCE AND WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

WHAT IS YFFS FINANCE AND WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

https://i.redd.it/d744g2iic4q51.gif
A quick run-down on the YFFS protocol, its background/history, value, mission, audit status, yield products and even an NFT game coming soon.
It’s no secret that DeFi has dominated the cryptosphere in 2020. The meteoric rise of yearn.finance (YFI) has ushered in a billion-dollar wave of interest in vault-driven projects offering yield farming and liquidity staking, driven by their novel capability to offer users excellent sources of passive income. Unsurprisingly, this sector’s rapid growth has resulted in the development of an array of YF-projects forked from YFI.
So what sets YFFS apart?
YFFS is a fork of yearn.finance. Conceived in the knowledge that the DeFi sphere’s complex jargon and technology excludes many investors; YFFS’s product-rich platform is built with a focus on simplicity and accessibility – aiming to be inclusive of even the newest crypto enthusiasts. In the world of blockchain, actions speak loudest, and the consistent and impressive actions of YFFS developers demonstrate the team’s unflinching commitment to building with conviction and innovation, while being uniquely receptive to the community’s needs.
Background & History
The YFFS launch was fair, meaning the team didn’t start farming miles ahead of everyone else. Announced in a Medium post on September 1; the project’s planned features were outlined along with token distribution and proof of locked liquidity. The project was launched just 24 hours later, with only limited farming available and less than a day later had already seen in excess of $2,000,000 in transactions.
This was swiftly followed on September 3 with the announcement and launch of the Staking V1 product, MicroStaking, the Farm and YFARM token, a DeFi app supported by SushiSwap via smart contracts. A pre-sale of 1,000,000 tokens was offered and thus began the YFFS team’s habit of over-delivering on a regular basis. It also saw the first big rise in value topping $100 from a token launched on Uniswap at just $0.25. Also announced was the decision to increase the locked liquidity from 50% to 100% which cemented the faith of many early investors. A CoinMarketCap entry soon followed.
Since then progress has come thick and fast; additional farming pools on September 5 along with a Bilaxy listing announcement (with a tease of several more in the pipeline), September 7 brought a HotBit listing. The 10th of the month gave us the announcement of Staking V2 and yet another exchange in XT.com.
On the 13th, the team announced that the admin keys were burned giving the growing community yet more confidence in this extraordinary team followed closely by the promise of aggregator vaults. Since then we have seen Draw Staking, the promised vaults with an early beta release and the publishing of a project roadmap.
While the YFFS team, much like most other projects, has chosen to remain anonymous in order to protect their privacy, they have distinguished themselves and proven their commitment to the community through actions such as the admin key burn, which relinquished control of the contract – a potent display of trust in a climate plagued by scams and rugpulls.
Most recently announced is a partnership with YFOS to deliver NFT Car – a game in which Non-Fungible Tokens can be acquired. In recent months NFT’s have seen a surge in interest and development, giving YFFS yet another coveted weapon in an arsenal primed to capture the attention of the market.
Vaults V2 released this weekend, 28th September; a day ahead of schedule. Over-delivery seems to be ingrained in this team’s DNA.
YFFS.finance
In the simplest terms, YFFS.finance is a yield aggregator, giving users the opportunity to put their latent crypto assets to work for them. The key value propositions include: draw staking (allowing unstaking with no lock up!); a rapidly growing range of farming opportunities at incredible rates of return; and ease-of-accessibility that ensures the project can be used by any type of investor, regardless of expertise and experience. Combined with excellent tokenomics and a community-focused ethos, it’s easy to understand the novel benefits of this broad platform.
YFARM Token
As touched on earlier, the YFARM token is a DeFi app supported by SushiSwap; which will also act as the YFFS platform’s governance token. As you’ll see from the roadmap, voting is planned for implementation in Q4 of this year, at which point the platform will be guided entirely by its community. The Telegram channel for the project is ablaze with discussion about where this will lead; with the general consensus suggesting a YFARM token burn is imminent.
Value
The real value here is the team itself. In no other project of this size have I seen a team deliver so much, so fast. Consistently. Nearly every promised feature has been delivered ahead of time, often by surprise. To date the following features have been delivered to a live state:
Farming
Draw Staking V2
Swaps
Vaults V2
Coming soon: NTF Cars – A Play/Apple Store game to gain Non Fungible Tokens
Billed as Farming 2.0, YFFS takes the Yearn model and makes it more profitable, broader featured and more accessible.
Governance
On-chain governance is flexible and effective and has proven very popular in the DeFi arena. Transparent no-cost voting will put the future of the project into the hands of those who value it most – the investors. The voting system will be delivered in Q4 2020 and further details on the mechanism are eagerly awaited.
Website and UI
New visitors to the yffs.finance landing page may be put off by the style initially, as the team have focused very much on function over form. A new landing page and UI is in the works, and I encourage you to look past this to the technology beneath. Fundamentals form the foundation of any successful project, and I truly believe that the pillars of this project have been forged in steel.
The APYs on the farming page are currently not entirely accurate, though the team will update this shortly.
It’s important to consider that the project is still only a month old, just about everything is a work in progress.
YFFS Audits
While many DeFi projects have chosen not to audit, at times with disastrous consequences for investors, the YFFS team have chosen to engage professional auditors. The audit is currently ongoing and the results are eagerly awaited. It is worth noting that a number of community members have reviewed the contracts themselves and none have reported any major concerns.
DefiYield.info, a respected auditor on Twitter has also reviewed the project and code and had only positive things to say.
Upcoming Features
Already laid out in the roadmap are further features; governance voting, smart pools, zap, insurance and eventually lending. Exactly what these will look like and offer remains to be seen, but based on the current progress and momentum we are likely in for a treat.

A Warning on DeFi Risk
Nothing is without risk and DeFi investment is certainly not. Interacting with and depositing funds into smart contracts always carries risk; not least because of the complexity of interlinked components outside a single project’s control.
As always, never invest more than you can afford to lose, and carry out your own research and due diligence. Knowing your personal risk tolerance is key as these assets can be highly volatile, especially in the case of low cap projects.
Conclusion
As of late, DeFi has become the playground of choice for whales. YFI has blazed a mind-blowing trail but is now, realistically, out of reach of the average investor.
That being said, YFFS is very strong contender for the next big player in the burgeoning Yearn arena.
With the truly incredible rate of delivery, perhaps the broadest range of features in the space, excellent returns, the small token supply and the frankly astonishingly low market cap I would have a hard time not recommending YFFS to just about anyone.
If you missed the YFI ride, this is my pick for the next generation. YFFS have worked hard to differentiate themselves from the raft of Y-clones and succeeded in spades, offering more features than just about anyone. This is what doing it right looks like.
That being said, this is not financial advice. Always research diligently and make informed decisions.
Thanks for coming along!

WHAT IS YFFS FINANCE AND WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

https://i.redd.it/zr3ex9g194q51.gif
A quick run-down on the YFFS protocol, its background/history, value, mission, audit status, yield products and even an NFT game coming soon.
It’s no secret that DeFi has dominated the cryptosphere in 2020. The meteoric rise of yearn.finance (YFI) has ushered in a billion-dollar wave of interest in vault-driven projects offering yield farming and liquidity staking, driven by their novel capability to offer users excellent sources of passive income. Unsurprisingly, this sector’s rapid growth has resulted in the development of an array of YF-projects forked from YFI.
So what sets YFFS apart?
YFFS is a fork of yearn.finance. Conceived in the knowledge that the DeFi sphere’s complex jargon and technology excludes many investors; YFFS’s product-rich platform is built with a focus on simplicity and accessibility – aiming to be inclusive of even the newest crypto enthusiasts. In the world of blockchain, actions speak loudest, and the consistent and impressive actions of YFFS developers demonstrate the team’s unflinching commitment to building with conviction and innovation, while being uniquely receptive to the community’s needs.
Background & History
The YFFS launch was fair, meaning the team didn’t start farming miles ahead of everyone else. Announced in a Medium post on September 1; the project’s planned features were outlined along with token distribution and proof of locked liquidity. The project was launched just 24 hours later, with only limited farming available and less than a day later had already seen in excess of $2,000,000 in transactions.
This was swiftly followed on September 3 with the announcement and launch of the Staking V1 product, MicroStaking, the Farm and YFARM token, a DeFi app supported by SushiSwap via smart contracts. A pre-sale of 1,000,000 tokens was offered and thus began the YFFS team’s habit of over-delivering on a regular basis. It also saw the first big rise in value topping $100 from a token launched on Uniswap at just $0.25. Also announced was the decision to increase the locked liquidity from 50% to 100% which cemented the faith of many early investors. A CoinMarketCap entry soon followed.
Since then progress has come thick and fast; additional farming pools on September 5 along with a Bilaxy listing announcement (with a tease of several more in the pipeline), September 7 brought a HotBit listing. The 10th of the month gave us the announcement of Staking V2 and yet another exchange in XT.com.
On the 13th, the team announced that the admin keys were burned giving the growing community yet more confidence in this extraordinary team followed closely by the promise of aggregator vaults. Since then we have seen Draw Staking, the promised vaults with an early beta release and the publishing of a project roadmap.
While the YFFS team, much like most other projects, has chosen to remain anonymous in order to protect their privacy, they have distinguished themselves and proven their commitment to the community through actions such as the admin key burn, which relinquished control of the contract – a potent display of trust in a climate plagued by scams and rugpulls.
Most recently announced is a partnership with YFOS to deliver NFT Car – a game in which Non-Fungible Tokens can be acquired. In recent months NFT’s have seen a surge in interest and development, giving YFFS yet another coveted weapon in an arsenal primed to capture the attention of the market.
Vaults V2 released this weekend, 28th September; a day ahead of schedule. Over-delivery seems to be ingrained in this team’s DNA.
YFFS.finance
In the simplest terms, YFFS.finance is a yield aggregator, giving users the opportunity to put their latent crypto assets to work for them. The key value propositions include: draw staking (allowing unstaking with no lock up!); a rapidly growing range of farming opportunities at incredible rates of return; and ease-of-accessibility that ensures the project can be used by any type of investor, regardless of expertise and experience. Combined with excellent tokenomics and a community-focused ethos, it’s easy to understand the novel benefits of this broad platform.
YFARM Token
As touched on earlier, the YFARM token is a DeFi app supported by SushiSwap; which will also act as the YFFS platform’s governance token. As you’ll see from the roadmap, voting is planned for implementation in Q4 of this year, at which point the platform will be guided entirely by its community. The Telegram channel for the project is ablaze with discussion about where this will lead; with the general consensus suggesting a YFARM token burn is imminent.
Value
The real value here is the team itself. In no other project of this size have I seen a team deliver so much, so fast. Consistently. Nearly every promised feature has been delivered ahead of time, often by surprise. To date the following features have been delivered to a live state:
Farming
Draw Staking V2
Swaps
Vaults V2
Coming soon: NTF Cars – A Play/Apple Store game to gain Non Fungible Tokens
Billed as Farming 2.0, YFFS takes the Yearn model and makes it more profitable, broader featured and more accessible.
Governance
On-chain governance is flexible and effective and has proven very popular in the DeFi arena. Transparent no-cost voting will put the future of the project into the hands of those who value it most – the investors. The voting system will be delivered in Q4 2020 and further details on the mechanism are eagerly awaited.
Website and UI
New visitors to the yffs.finance landing page may be put off by the style initially, as the team have focused very much on function over form. A new landing page and UI is in the works, and I encourage you to look past this to the technology beneath. Fundamentals form the foundation of any successful project, and I truly believe that the pillars of this project have been forged in steel.
The APYs on the farming page are currently not entirely accurate, though the team will update this shortly.
It’s important to consider that the project is still only a month old, just about everything is a work in progress.
YFFS Audits
While many DeFi projects have chosen not to audit, at times with disastrous consequences for investors, the YFFS team have chosen to engage professional auditors. The audit is currently ongoing and the results are eagerly awaited. It is worth noting that a number of community members have reviewed the contracts themselves and none have reported any major concerns.
DefiYield.info, a respected auditor on Twitter has also reviewed the project and code and had only positive things to say.
Upcoming Features
Already laid out in the roadmap are further features; governance voting, smart pools, zap, insurance and eventually lending. Exactly what these will look like and offer remains to be seen, but based on the current progress and momentum we are likely in for a treat.
The team have recently taken a poll to gauge what the community would like next, be that voting or smart pools. I’ll be watching with interest.
A Warning on DeFi Risk
Nothing is without risk and DeFi investment is certainly not. Interacting with and depositing funds into smart contracts always carries risk; not least because of the complexity of interlinked components outside a single project’s control.

2020.09.29 18:38 wishitwas93 Does this sound like a catfish or honest mistake? Was mistaken for someone else

Hello all,
Please feel free to call me incredibly paranoid, because I am.
This morning I matched with someone, and when we started talking she said that she isnt doing well after I asked her how she was. I asked her if she would like to confide in a stranger as to what is bothering her and she said I'm not a stranger and that we went on a date years ago. I started getting worried because even on my drunkest dates I remember most of what happens, although she looks quasi familiar but is a few years younger than me and im 100% sure that I never went on a date with this person.
I asked her when this was and she says she doesn't rememeber because she was drunk. She says "yeah youre a fire fighter and we went to (random street)" and I said I've never been a firefighter and have never even heard of that street. She says "I'm so embarrased, I guess all guys look alike" and now we are talking a bit more. I asked her for IG and she said she deleted it and only had one picture on it. She says she just went through a breakup as well.
My question is: does this sound like some sort of scam? I haven't been asked for money, and I feel like she's real, but I am naturally very skeptical and am very paranoid about getting scammed or blackmailed in some sense.

2020.09.29 15:59 bearassbobcat covid19 grant scam. how does this work?

friends of the family answered all of the questions below. they received the 'relief' money a day later (through direct deposit I assume). Everything was done online or electronically.
I know there are check cashing scams but the money they received $10,000-$50,000 was received electronically.
The people involved took a commission of 9%
I know direct deposits can be reversed but as far as I know it's at the banks discretion so as a scammer it's probably not something you want to bank on.
another angle is identity theft but is an identity worth $10,000 that they just gave out?

2020.09.29 15:36 Jabberjay_802 David is so contradictory

David: Lana’s a super conservative girl.
Also David: I like a good strip tease. So does Lana. I’ve seen everything and she’s seen everything.
David: I’ve never given Lana any money. She’s received NO money from me or the website.
Lana: I like when David gives me money and gifts.
David. Well I didn’t give her much money.
David 5 minutes later: I’ve never given Lana money.
David: That’s not Lana on all those dating websites! She’s not scamming me! You’re fired (to the PI)!
Also David: Of course she’s on a bunch of dating sites. You would never just be on one dating site.
Can he ever stick to the same story?? He’s so delusional and comes up with an answer for everything to justify his behavior and Lana’s behavior. He literally makes opposing/contradictory statements ALL the time. It’s frustrating the hell out of me. I literally want to smack him upside the head.

2020.09.29 10:51 widmerpool_nz Lovejoy Rewatch - S04E03 - Second Fiddle

I think the creators love a strange introduction to an episode and this is one of the weirdest: an OTT wedding with LET dressed up as Victorian (Edwardian?) dandies, complete with powder puff makeup, wigs and ruff collars. The main attraction is a concert violinist.
Later, Eric is blindly throwing darts at what appears to be a blank wall. It's a painting that he's "distressing."
The violinist (Lindasy Parry-Davies) pays Lovejoy a visit as he' got a Strad. A genuine one, that he wants faking up to look like it's not genuine. The three of them try to work out what's going on, though Eric has no time for this. He has a date with a Muriel (Sarah Alexander) though we don't know what's going on yet, only that she works at the local Tourist Information Centre.
Tinker remembers Tommy Norris, "King of the Fiddle Fakers." They find him at The Kop end at Anfield, and he's played by the wonderful Michael Angelis, who passed away recently. They meet him in his "office" - the back of a HGV.
Eric woos Muriel and wants to know when "they" are arriving. I think I now get wind of Eric's scam.
Tinker has worked out the fiddle scam: Lindsay wants a lower valuation as he's going thorugh a divorce. Great theory, except he's never been married.
Norris gets to work, talking to a photo of Bill Shankly as he goes.
Eric finally gets Muriel to relent courtesy of many flowers and she tells him when they are arriving.
Tommy's done his stuff with some modern varnish. Except he couldn't do that. He substituted it with a good fake.
The quest for the perfect faking up continues: a real antique but fake label. I love this scene of the two of them working out the best way to make the real thing look fake.
There's another story about the gang blackmailing Eric with a polaroid of him dressed up in his fancy dress costume. It's not that enthralling.
Lovejoy works out what Eric's been up to, though it isn't spelt out to us.
Turns out Parry-Davies doesn't actually own the Strad. There are a couple of other people involved though I am losing interest about this time.
And finally: Muriel escorts a coachload of Yanks into the local pub, where Eric is selling horse brasses by the gross to the old folks.
Quite a good episode this, bolsterd by the great Michael Angelis (I always thought his episode on Boys From the Blackstuff was equal to Yosser's Story) though I thought the main plot tailed off in the last third.

2020.09.29 04:53 howyafeelaboutit Extremely low effort scam b-day card

*edit: typos and clarification
This year for my birthday, a buddy of mine handed me a folded piece of paper with text printed on the outward facing side, which was an agreement to pay a refundable deposit for an open house for a rental property. I opened it up and it read "It was your birthday" and nothing more (this was a few days after my birthday as we hadn't seen eachother on the actual date). I actually really enjoyed and appreciated the gift, because he and I have kindof a funky friendship. Also, gift giving is not something he would generally do at all, and this is EXACTLY the type of gift I would have pictured him giving someone.
I thanked him and asked why he used this paper specifically for the card. I'm paraphrasing here, but he explained how he had been the victim of a scam and that paper was the agreement that did him in. He was looking for a rental property and found one on Craigslist. He contacted the "landlord" about his listing, and the landlord told him that he would be hosting open houses for the property some time later, but there was a lot of interest so he needed people to sign up for specific time slots so as to keep less than 10 people there at a time as a Covid precaution. To ensure that everyone actually showed up who signed up, he required a $100 sign up fee which would be refunded upon arrival to the open house. He sent my buddy an agreement, my buddy printed it off and signed it, then scanned it in and sent it off, and then sent the cash. No further correspondence after the money was sent, and upon investigation it was discovered that the listed address was not the house in the online listing at all.
After telling his story my buddy says "so yeah, that card cost me a hundred bucks and a headache, hope you love it!"

2020.09.29 04:29 scammeddeliveryguy I fell for a mail scam, ama

I recently fell for a work-from-home mail fraud scam. It was pretty scary and am currently trying get my head around it.
Edit: more story, ok everything started about about a month ago. I was applying for jobs through indeed.com and have a full resume with complete information uploaded on there. I received an email asking if I would like to complete an application for a position at “company” said sure, received the application and sent it back out. Received a call for a over the phone interview for “company” and went through the process. Received a call back about a couple days later saying I was vetted for the position and will be provided a “company” login through “company website” for a 1 month probationary period of work from home( a little back story, I have a blind dad so work from home sounded like a great thing.) so a week after being provided login I was provided with a start date and tasks through the “company website” started receiving packages to my home through website and was tasked to shipped them out with labels provided at the local big name shipping stores. Receive all sorts of items, make sure to log them into company site and ship out as required. Come time for first paycheck a few weeks in, receive inquiry from postal inspector, proceeds to ask a few questions, I answer to the best of my abilities. Turns out “company” is fake and purchasing with stolen credit information and using me and others as shipping hubs. Now I’m out of said “job” that was a scam to begin with. Was completely taken advantage of and trying to figure out what to make of the situation.

2020.09.29 03:44 1grrlarmy Today I received an 8 year old letter of collection Illinois Revenue Dept

Hi all, today out of the blue I received a letter dated October 2012 that stated that I owed $400+ in penalties for non payment of 2011 state taxes (which I paid) and that it would be sent to collections. I’m not sure what to do as it’s currently 2020. If it was sent to collections in 2012 the statute of limitations on this debt would have run out in 2019, right? Do I address this? It was post marked two days ago. It just seems like a scam being that it was sent 8 YEARS late. I don’t want to mess with the Government though.

2020.09.29 03:39 Hybrid_Blood This was odd... Anyone else experience this?

Just messaged someone on FB marketplace to try to buy something from them, we agreed on a price and location/date. But the thing is, we're meeting in person and he requested I pay through Facebook or PayPal, instead of cash(not even because of COVID related precautions). He said he wanted the payment to be tracked. I could understand if I was the seller and he wanted my PayPal in case he got scammed and needed to get a refund for faulty merchandise, but I'm the buyer so it seems a bit strange that he wants history of the purchase. Anyone else encounter something similar to this?

2020.09.28 23:55 Leather_Term Former NM Governor Bill Richardson accused of using bribes to fund 'sexual services and favors'

DailyMail.co.uk 28 Sep 2020
The scandal plagued former governor of New Mexico - who Virginia Roberts claimed she had underage sex with on Jeffrey Epstein's orders - has been dragged into the mud once again.
Career politician Bill Richardson has been accused of raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes and kickbacks while in office - money which allegedly funded a luxury and debauched lifestyle including 'sexual services and favors', according to a recently unsealed legal complaint obtained by DailyMail.com.
According to the lawsuit, Richardson ran a scam dubbed the 'Richardson Ring' which saw the one-time governor benefiting from money he grafted from business investments into the state of New Mexico in the early 2000s.
The greedy politician lined his own pockets with cash, used some money to fund his political campaigns and organizations and also enjoyed lavish meals, wine and liquor as well as luxury travel and entertainment, the legal filing claims.
Richardson, 72, served as Governor for New Mexico from January 1, 2003 to December 31, 2010 and during that time he was the chairman of the State Investment Council (SIC).
Richardson's alleged 'pay to play' scheme was exposed by a man called Frank Foy and made public in unsealed court documents in January 2009.
The resulting public scandal forced the SIC to begin investigating kickbacks in state investment business and Richardson himself.
Now in a civil action filed in Bernalillo County, New Mexico, in May, but only unsealed last week, it's alleged that Richardson oversaw a sophisticated cover up of his scheme.
The lawsuit claims that Governor Richardson was able to place his trusted 'operatives' in state government jobs to cover-up his wrongdoing.
The documents allege Richardson installed several key allies into the SIC to help cover his tracks and thwart any corruption probe.
The filing states: 'So far, the defendants have succeeded in covering up Bill Richardson’s wrongdoing.
'To date, upon information and belief, Bill Richardson has managed to evade being deposed under oath about his graft.'
It added: 'As Governor, Bill Richardson controlled the hiring of all state employees in the executive branch. He used his control to carry out corruption, and to cover it up.'
The suit, the paperwork states, is brought on behalf of the State of New Mexico, Frank Foy and John Casey, under the Fraud Against Taxpayers Act, and seeks damages from Richardson and several of his alleged cohorts to repay the state the money they allegedly took.
The allegations will bring yet more unwanted attention on Richardson.
Richardson's office did not respond to a request by DailyMail.com for comment.
court document images shown within article, link above!
In court documents in 2015 the once influential politician was accused of being involved with Jeffrey Epstein's child trafficking ring.
Epstein victim Virginia Roberts, now Giuffre, named Richardson as being among a list of powerful men she was told to have sex with by Epstein and his alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell.
Giuffre, now 37, filed a Florida lawsuit in 2009 against Epstein stating she was a sex slave for him from 1999 to 2002
Giuffre later alleged that she had sex with British royal Prince Andrew three times and was forced to have sex with Richardson.
The court documents were unsealed to the public in 2019 and Prince Andrew and Richardson have vehemently denied the claims.
Giuffre alleges that she was 'told to have sex' with Richardson by Epstein and his alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell.
Epstein, who died from suspected suicide in his jail cell in New York last year, owned the huge 10,000 acre Zorro Ranch in New Mexico where it's believed he assaulted young girls and threw lavish parties for his powerful guests.
'Ghislaine told me from her mouth to do these things,' Giuffre said in a deposition.
'Jeffrey told me from his mouth to do these things with these people. Ghislaine instructed me to do the things that I did with Jeffrey Epstein on the very first meeting that I had with him.'
When the allegations first emerged, Richardson, who served as US Ambassador to the United Nations from 1997-1998, and Secretary of Energy under President Bill Clinton from 1998-2000 as well as chairman of the 2004 Democratic National Convention, said the claims were 'completely false.'
In a statement issued to Fox News by his reps, it said: 'Governor Richardson has never even been contacted by any party regarding this lawsuit.
'To be clear, in Governor Richardson's limited interactions with Mr. Epstein, he never saw him in the presence of young or underage girls.
'Governor Richardson has never been to Mr. Epstein's residence in the Virgin Islands. Governor Richardson has never met Ms. Giuffre.'
The claims all date back to the early 2000s, which is also the same time that his co-accused Prince Andrew started doing business in New Mexico with Richardson as part of his role as the UK's special trade envoy.
In October 2003, the prince's trip to New Mexico was front page of the local newspaper, The Santa Fe New Mexican, with the royal and Richardson swapping presents - with the governor giving a black concho belt and receiving a wine coaster made by a cousin of the prince, according to the paper.
The pair talked about wanting to increase trade between Britain and New Mexico with the prince saying he 'was honored to be here'.
They dined together that night at Richardson's mansion, who told the paper that it was the third time he'd met the prince after meeting in 1999 in Turkey. 'He happens to be my friend,' Richardson added.

2020.09.28 22:29 PopSmokeW00 How do I (23M) Change the Course of Friendship with (27F) Girl? Had an Extreme Situation

I met this girl and just have literally become crazy about her. I just don't know what it is I think a large part of it is the facade she put on in the beginning which made me fall for and still think about in the back of my head despite things changing a lot since then. But I'm almost in denial about it and can't help it for some reason. I'm starting to question myself too even though some of the red flags were clear as day and right in front of my face.
So anyway, my gut and first impression turned out to be right as far as I can tell, about 1 and a half months later. She's the type who is not a very moral person deep down, but can be depending on the situation. Like she has colleagues who she cares for, friends she sees eye to eye with and wishes well, but on the other hand she also can be cold hearted and do extreme things to others. She also lies a lot and makes excuses, blames technicalities rather than apologizing and spins stories around to shift the blame away from herself. Plays a lot of mind games. I've dealt with a kind of girl who was 100% like her, and I'm trying to hope this one isn't the same because that one was completely evil, but I'm afraid the red flags are almost identical in every part.
At first when we met, she saw me as someone who'd take her out with her friend to dine, and was basically just trying to use me. But she still had decency and wasn't stretching it, so she was doing it within reason and voluntarily choosing to budget some other stuff. She was also clear about her intentions of us being just friends, whereas she could've dated me and done horrible stuff behind my back while being fake. So she does have some good aspects. Anyway, Then, as I got kind and nice, she started the "give an inch and take a mile" thing. Trying to test waters with how much she can get away with and how lenient I was. But then I expressed my disappointment indirectly and she brought the decency back. However she still kept with the excessive lies (which were really unnecessary, like I could see through them and it was uncalled for, but I used reverse psychology and I guess she just didn't want me to think a certain way and be turned off by her, so she lied instead). These were just minor things for the most part, like saying she had to wake up late to excuse not replying or meeting up, changing her attitude to go from saint to devil depending on the situation to fit her narrative, etc.. but it's always weird because the stories don't add up. You can't be a saint one day and a devil a few days later. A healthy morning person one day and a crazy night owl the next. That kind of thing.
So anyway, we ended up staying together in a 2 bedroom apartment for a weekend like she suggested, with her best friend/cousin. Things were going well until they went overboard with taking advantage of my kindness on one incident, and they tried playing along nicely thinking I'd still be a doormat but I spoke privately with the main girl and told her everything, very politely and reasonably but 100% honest and straightforward without any filter, I lost my temper and just told her I knew what was up and how she thinks and the stuff she does and want to just get over that part and be normal with each other. Like I was just saying I know it all and don't mind, I'm accepting it and still like her company/friendship/etc. and that I just hope we cut the nonsense there - She was shocked and tried to spin it around and make excuses again instead of owning up to it, but then she just didn't know what to say and totally seemed speechless from her tone, and we called it a night and went to bed as she tried avoiding it. She said we'll talk about it the next day but I said no we'll just forget it happened and have a good time.
The next day we had a good time and like it didn't happen. Everything went smooth until the end of the night but we didn't say anything about that. The day after, things went awkward again because there was some minor issue from that previous night and so they tried avoiding contact and spent time alone. Then we saw each other for a bit and they tried being nice and friendly again, but I just couldn't hold my no-nonsense approach and politely spoke with her privately again about how it's still weird. Like the previous talk didn't do much.. From there she was a bit nicer about it and understanding and owned up to some faults. Then she went to have her own space in the room. They left a while later and so did I, but when I came back there was a very puzzling situation that happened and I have a feeling they tried to scam/rob me. More context on this in another post you can read on my profile. I'm almost 90% sure it was meant to be that way, but there's a 10% chance I could be wrong. But their plan (I guess suggested by the main girl whom I liked) was foiled as I happened to come back right at the same time as the main girl, and before her friend who didn't know and came a while later and locked the door manually, then saw me and acted surprised.
Anyway, my main question is that I really liked this girl, I don't know what it is. Like I said I can see through all the nonsense and bad aspects, but I also feel like she has some good in her, and maybe I just gave off an impression of someone who can be taken advantage of and then when I was upfront about calling her out (although politely) she might've felt weird about it and tried to end things and see if she could get away with a final stretch. But I want a way to be able to get about this in the following way: to show that I'm not stupid, I am aware of it all, yet I'm accepting it and want to change things for the better. Like how much more open minded can a person be? I'm a very emotional person so if I was the one who tried to pull some dirty move on someone and was approached this way, I would feel like it was a wake up call from life and break down in tears and be lifelong friends with that person.. but I know others might take it a different way.. especially the way I see this girl she might be the opposite. So what does everyone think? I know the rational thing is to cut it off immediately and move on, but I'm just feeling horrible about that like I can't get myself to do it. The last thing we did was leave the hotel on good terms, and I think they still assume I'm clueless or dumb to an extent.
I've met tons of girls like this and others even much worse, and even a lot of good ones, but there's just something about this one I literally don't know what it is that I fell so hard for.. I just feel like it's meant to be something better and meaningful
----------
tl;dr: How do I let this girl know I am aware of her manipulative ways, preferably indirectly because being direct and polite didn't work too well or sit well with her.

2020.09.28 19:33 BadgalB_ POT SD was rude at our M&G🙄

I went on a date last night with a potential and it was horrible. He had no manners at the table, talked my ears off and was just straight up rude. I had told him plenty of times that I wanted to be comfortable with him first before doing overnights with him because that’s just how I am. He’s still a stranger obviously and he doesn’t get that. We were disagreeing at the table because I told him I would like to hang out more rather than just hopping in a bed with him because that’s not what it’s about! Can I see if we have chemistry first? Damn..then, he goes ahead and says “well you need to go back on the site and put platonic on your profile since that is what you’re looking for” I told him because I don’t want to rush into a room with you I should put platonic on my profile? I didn’t ask this guy to give me any money for the dates I want to go on, so I was confused. Then he apologizes because he was wrong about what he said. Truthfully, I think he’s this way because of how many people played games with him in the past, or scammed him but it’s really not fair to me because he’s not very understanding of where I’m coming from. He’s a little pushy and I don’t like it. Do you guys think I should keep talking to him or move on?
