DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE CHRISTMAS AMZON GIFT CARD THING GOING AROUND
IT IS A SCAM, IT IS FAKE, IT IS NOT RUN BY AMAZON OR ITS AFFILIATED COMPANIES.
So, a lot of you are probably going to see this. It’s a website that looks like it’s owned by Amazon, with a very similar look to the page as well as a similar domain. It’s a nice looking website, and it has a security certificate attached to the name.
The advertisements for it claim that you can either receive a $50 card for completing a survey, or a $100 one for referring three people via social media
I personally tested this website out for legitimacy. I went through its surveys with fake information and a fake email/address and it sent me tons of spam. I also did a background check on the website, which turned up with results saying it is NOT SAFE and not run by Amazon or its affiliates.
DO NOT, AND I REPEAT, DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK.
It will steal your information that you provide for it and send you waves upon waves of spam and junk mail, as well as make automatic posts for you on whichever social media account you’ve given it. (You can disable it and remove permissions from this company by going to your connected apps page in your settings)
There are dozens upon dozens of scam accounts being made to promote this website. However, this is because the sites hijack your social media accounts and send out automatic posts promoting this scam with Amazon branding and very fancy, professional graphics. These aren’t real people promoting it.
If you see someone reblogging this scam, please email amazon at
firstname.lastname@example.org to help them take down this awful, illegitimate website!

UPDATE: It has come to my attention that reporting to the site may not be the best option. The website has not been responding and overall may just be a massive fraud site looking to gather personal info from unknowing buyers or it may be a hoax overall [ x ] [ x ]. I do not know. I know that my artwork is on a site (that gives the appearance of sales) that does not have permission to feature it.
artwork they have found randomly online without permission from the artist. Today I found out I was a victim of their scheme and have since reported my works demanding they be taken down. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]
Many other artist both known and unknown have become victims of these thieves [x]. Fellow artist please go check your user name, real name, and anything else your artwork might be under!

To report your artwork, there is a link hidden at the bottom of the page in which your artwork is featured. Click “Report Violation” to start a report to the website owner.

Hello everyone. These are pictures of a girl from my school named Cara Golias. She recently went missing on Sunday of September 28th and we all are very worried about where she might be. She lives in the northern Virginia area near Washington, D.C. in a county named Fairfax. So if you are from that area please take a moment to read this. She is 16 years old, has hazel eyes, brown hair, and is about 115 pounds. Please share this so we can help her achieve a swift and safe return. Even if you aren’t from this area, sharing this may help notify someone who does, everything counts.
The annual Perseid meteor shower is my favourite and the most famous stargazing event during the summer. It puts on a great show this week as you can see
60 or more
“shooting stars” per hour! The meteor shower lasts until late August but as Phil Plait said the best time to watch is Wednesday night after local midnight - that’s when your part of the Earth is facing into the oncoming meteoroids and you see more.
Here are some general tips which make stargazing better:
Give your eyes 20 minutes to adjust to the dark. Any exposure to bright lights will instantly ruin your eye’s acclimatization to the dark.
If possible go outside the city, or search for good local stargazing places
For the best chances of spotting a shooting star, scan the whole sky repeatedly
Be prepared to spend a few hours sitting outside. Meteor showers can be seen as soon as it gets dark, but better viewing begins about 11 pm
Here’s NASA’s visibility map from last year:
The meteors are bits of rocky debris left behind by Comet Swift-Tuttle as it orbits the Sun. When Earth goes through the comet’s path, some of the bits of comet dust slam into the atmosphere. Have further questions? You’ll probably get an answerhere.
There have been bomb attacks in Thamrin (Sarinah) in Jakarta, Indonesia and the police are asking you to stay in your house and do not visit any restaurants and/or malls! If any of my followers are in that area, here are a few more dangerous (targeted) zones:
This man is a sexual predator. His name is Tony Young and he has sexually assaulted at least 5 young people. He is interested in mostly trans boys, and masculine-identifying people. He will gain your trust by finding topics that you both enjoy and talk to you about them. He claims to be associated with the following shadowcasts for Repo! The Genetic Opera and The Rocky Horror Picture Show: (Oregon Donors, Clinton Street Cabaret, Denton Delinquents, and the Blue Mouseketeers.) He also offers to take free private cosplay photos. Please avoid him at all costs.
People he assaults have been: -transmasculine -gender-nonconforming (masc appearing) -mentally ill -between 13-20
He is often seen in the attire in this photo, a sparkly black fedora and suit jacket, with that same shirt on beneath it. He usually wears black dress pants and can be at times seen walking with a cane. What’s worse is that he may even be on staff. If he attempts to talk to you please find any excuse to leave because he is dangerous and he has not been dealt with appropriately. If you see him with somebody else please alert them and try to remove them from the situation as well.
