As some of you know there are nefarious schemes out there today.
Some of us believe there are actual evil corporations, and even perhaps global organizations with a particularly evil agenda. One of the most popular among conspiracy theorists is and has always been, the illuminati.
Of course the real illuminati are undoubtedly difficult to find as they require a kind of secrecy to function if they intend to influence the world from behind the curtain like some wizard of oz archetype. (often used in their sinister mind control training.)
There are of course impostors…
Having recently started an instagram account I was surprised to find myself approached by this super secret organization by no fewer than 4 supposed representatives. Being a student of oddities I of course went along with the recruitment long enough to determine who these folks were and what they were on about. Granted I didn’t expect much divulgence in the way of reptilian shape shifters, or global ponzi schemes, as these were no doubt the super secretive branch of illuminati who recruited via Instagram… Probably from the Nigerian branch?
Immediately I was questioned regarding whether I had ever approached any representatives before – trying to enlist – I replied that indeed I had followed the illuminati on Linkdin, but couldn’t know for sure if they were the real thing. My “would be recruiter” informed me that it was essential to build a foundation of trust and asked me to download WhatsApp.
How These Nefarious Global Conspiracy Plots Thicken
By now I had (while chatting about South Africa) looked up the Jamaican woman who had been duped into this scam, seen which tools were likely to be used to compromise my WhatsApp account, and determined the layout of this article. At the exact same time I started chatting with the developer of ReactOS about his updates, and he has some really great news regarding new functionality – we might do an interview this week! (I’m very excited about that)
ReactOS is now supporting; Steam, Gog, Mozilla Firefox, and a variety of other modern apps out of the box!
Back to this scammer business…
As scams go I’d rank it about a 2. Partly due to the overreach of using something as big as the illuminati as the scam. I do understand who their key targets are. People who can pay out tiny amounts for long periods for the hopes of fame and fortune. Of course the implication is that you’ll end up famous – with no soul – but that’s just part of the conspiracy right?
The inclusion of WhatsApp demonstrates their desire to compromise user account information prior to asking for money. Between low level hacking and extortion vs ordinary scamming like that Nigerian President who wants a few dollars to ship you a few million.
What would be funny is if the actual illuminati approached me. I’ve met a few dozen people who are very likely to have been approached, but they are all either celebrities, or from very old wealth. I don’t see them on instagram very often.
It would be interesting to find out I was mistaken though…
After all, why wouldn’t an evil global domination plot have room for my talents?
- Stop laughing…
- I could do stuff…
- Okay whatever
The accounts that approached me for this super secret domination of the world included:
There are about 5 others in my instagram list who are just waiting to approach me as well. If you wish to experience this phenomena first hand be my guest, and if you happen to find anyone in the actual illuminati who needs some web work done remember my rates are reasonable.
A message to law enforcement – As I didn’t proceed far enough to be asked to transfer any funds I cannot technically accuse these folks directly of criminal activity, however you can approach them on instagram yourselves and see what develops. Most likely there are dozens of them using the same contact info as indicated by the phone numbers on the account profiles.
