TIL that Sister Nancy, singer of Bam Bam which has been sampled many times by the likes of Kanye West and Jay-Z, didnt get any royalties from her record up until 2014. She was working in a bank in New York and decided to take the record label to court. She now gets 50%.
BF just sent 500$ back to someone on Venmo who "accidentally" sent it to him. Was he scammed? What should he do through his bank and through Venmo? (US)
My boyfriend had 500$ sent to him on venmo by a stranger "on accident" last night. Being the well meaning good person he is, he sent it right back. He had 0$ in the Venmo account *before and after the exchange, but has one or two bank cards linked to the Venmo account. The person is asking him to send the payment again. I told him the whole situation sounded like a scam I had heard of, the fake payment scam, and that he should contact Venmo and his bank immediately. I don't really know what to do to help him and we're all on hard times because of COVID 19. If you have advice we would super appreciate it. I hope this is on the right subreddit. Thanks for reading. Edit: Thank you for all of the helpful responses and for the two awards! You're very kind. I think we're in the clear if it was a scammer and not some random pheasant messing up sending rent to someone. We did the following:
Opened a ticket on Venmo to alert them that he may have been scammed and that something was sus.
Contacted the fraud department at his bank and told them to not allow 500$ charges from Venmo.
Put a stop on his cards that were linked to Venmo.
We will try calling Venmo shortly. Edit #2/Update: Gee whiz thanks for the other awards and all of the upvotes and comments. A lot of you were really thoughtful and helpful. I think the situation is mostly resolved. My bf has not lost any money yet and we will pay attention to Venmo and watch to see if there are any changes to his wallet balance to see if it goes negative and then we'll have to argue with Venmo and watch for debt collection agencies I guess. That being said, there are a few people wondering about if we were overly paranoid and if we did come across a scammer. The person had 100+ friends and my bf sent the money back immediately after it was received. Venmo said we did the right thing in this case. *shrug* I do not have a link but there is one somewhere in the comments. The reason why I freaked out and thought it might be a scam is because the person asked for the 500$ amount a second time after the first payment was sent. That screams not normal to me and it did to my bf too. I regularly choose to put my faith in the average person but we both are skeptical enough to see when something is weird, thus this post and wondering if we've encountered a bad egg. *added "before and after the exchange" to a sentence for clarification for some.
TIL the secret formula for WD-40 is stored in a bank vault and has only left it twice; once was on its 50th birthday when the CEO of WD-40 rode through Times Square on a horse with a suit of armor on and the formula in hand
Liverpool FC are stepping in to feed hungry kids after the Conservative Party voted down plans to provide free school meals to the poorest families over the half-term holiday. LFC will also be donating £200,000 to Liverpool north food bank.
YSK: donating money to a soup kitchen or for bank is far more productive than donating food.
Why YSK: food banks and soup kitchens have connections and bulk buying power that they use to buy more than you can with the same amount of money. They can also buy fresh produce which cannot be donated easily by individuals.
TIL that a bank robber escaped the scene of a crime by hiring a dozen identically dressed and unwitting civilians to be standing at the exact place and time of the arrival of the armoured car he intended to hijack.
TIL that Spain had a guardianship system until 1985, which granted men near-total control over their wives and daughters. Women needed their guardian's consent to open a bank account, work, or drive, and men could legally kill their female wards for having extramarital sex.
