Does anyone here know anything about a yoke called Fanbox?
Apparently a friend of mine was messing with it a year or two ago and entered my email as a recommendation. That was fair enough. I forgive my friends most things. I got an email from Fanbox saying I had been recommended and inviting me to create an account.
Being of the curious type, I gave myself a username and a password. I sniffed around inside their site, got bored, signed out and forgot all about it.
A while later I started getting emails telling me I had started earning. Fuck that. I hadn’t done anything so how could I be earning anything?
I get those emails regularly now. Nearly every day I get a mail telling me how much I earned the previous day. My account now stands at $2,335.39 and I now risen to rank 67 in Ireland’s top performers.
I thought that sounded like a reasonable lump of cash so I went to withdraw it.
It told me I needed a PayPal account.
Now I have a PayPal account which is damned handy for paying for
porn stuff on the Interweb but I wasn’t going to tell them about that as there is a small surplus in there I don’t want to lose. I set up a new PayPal account with nothing in it and told Fanbox about it.
They said they wanted an account that was associated with a credit card.
One thing I have learned to be wary of is people looking for my credit card information.
So the situation now is that they have a lorry load of cash which they say I have earned but I don’t know how. They say I am quite free to withdraw it but want my credit card details. I have searched their site but can’t make head nor tail of how they work, who they are and what the fuck they are doing paying me loads of dosh which I can’t touch.
Where do I go from here?
Who the fuck are Fanbox?
There are times when I find the Interweb to be really fucking frustrating.
