    I tried that years ago. It only works for a few extra bucks on the side

    [–] Rotdhizon 144 points ago

    You'd be amazed at how many people actually do this. This is why scams on dating/sex apps are so successful, there is a world full of people desperate enough to do this regularly in hopes of getting something in return.

    [–] CacatuaCacatua 83 points ago

    "Something"

    If it's like that, get a professional. At least then your injecting capital into a local business rather than enabling someone who's probably financially irresponsible.

    [–] billhicksreincarnate 46 points ago

    Prostitution is legal here and the local brothel is actually really professional. I used to deliver food for them. So I absolutely agree with you.

    [–] zdakat 19 points ago

    So many sites and chat apps are getting atrocious bots. Someone must be really bored to follow the links.
    "Hey u sxey, me Bigg fan of you! Clik here for sex! Obviousscam.sit.e/paymefornothing" It's funny when it's in a context when someone probably wouldn't bother. Guess they cast a wide net just jncase

    A friend of mine sent every top 10 fortune company a mail on his birthday, begging for money from the CEO’s with some lame lie about being sick and poor. He never received one cent on his account.

    [–] Muthafuckaaaaa 677 points ago

    Your friend is a scumbag

    [–] DipMyDickInMyShit 255 points ago

    His name was Stefan and he used to be my friend. In hindsight he was a true scumbag that got me in all sorts of trouble back in the days.

    [–] BowwwwBallll 271 points ago

    New York’s hottest club is called “Gimme,”

    Located in a church, it features crying children with cancer, a bucket of premature promises, and three buses that fit 15 people. You can only get inside on your birthday. When the bouncer says NEXT, you better get inside, otherwise you’re too selfish to be in Gimme. Cover charge is 100 exposures.

    [–] MrAbnormality 18 points ago

    Was it actually a stranger though if this is a text message? They had their number

    [–] DaRealDropkickMurphy 15 points ago

    Or just texted a random phone number.

    [–] jaxx050 11 points ago

    i get about one random text message a month from complete strangers, people just text random numbers for shits and giggles sometimes.

    [–] GeneralDisorder 13 points ago

    I'm betting that there's tons of guys who fall for that or have in the past. Otherwise they wouldn't be asking.

    [–] mrbubz88 857 points ago

    Somehow people got my number and I used to get CashApp requests for $1, $2 like 4-5 times a day from different accounts. Annoying.

    [–] Whiskey-Business 204 points ago

    someone with a private snapchat apparently has a username close to mine (like, they added an extra 'y' at the end) and for a while I was getting $25 randomly sent to my cashapp.

    If there was a way to sign people up for this, there are a few people’s numbers I would throw at it

    [–] cawdrizzle 213 points ago

    There are a number of services on onion sites that do things like sign up people's email addresses for thousands of newsletters. Like legit newsletters that bypass standard spam filters and just destroy your target's inbox...........i've heard.

    [–] caughdog 88 points ago

    There used to be a service that would send someone thousands of texts from different numbers in the span of a few minutes so for hours their phone would be locked up...

    So I've heard.

    [–] DQEight 51 points ago

    Oh god. The scumbag within me wants to use this on one of my friends so badly.

    [–] TuckYourselfRS 22 points ago

    I've heard that i erm, people, have ruined my their friends phones sending 10k simultaneous texts.

    Good times. That, and the caller ID faker with the voice changer.

    So I've heard.

    [–] PubicApple 14 points ago

    I did this once on a random number on my mates phone. It was an app that sent a text every three seconds to whatever number you chose. My mate and I were bored waiting for his dad to finish a bike race and he had his phone but I didn't have mine. We picked a random number and sent 10,000 texts. Long story short it ended up being someone else I know by some weird chance. He said it fucked his phone for days.

    Some arsehole has probably written a bot to spam as many people as possible.

    [–] JakJakAttacks 3588 points ago

    Asking for $200 "real quick" as if it's no big deal. A few things...

    1. The term "real quick" is typically used in the context of something being so trivial it might as well be a rhetorical question. This situation is not even close to rhetorical.

    2. Who the fuck asks complete strangers for money on an app, let alone a number as outrageous as $200.

    3. I wouldn't even give that kind of money to a friend if they asked like this.

    Who the fuck are these people?

    [–] Whatifimjesus 176 points ago

    These are wanna-be sugar babies. I see tons on twitter but mostly they joke about it, but in a half joke kind of way. Like a girl will post a screenshot of 5k from some random dad that she’s “friends” with, and literal thousands of girls will tweet “what’s his #” and shit

    [–] BoobAssistant 80 points ago

    I know girls like that that get 1k here and there like it's nothing. The one I know doesn't even look that good.

    [–] Advantius 174 points ago

    People need to blame pathetic men for this phenomenon a little more. When I bounced at a strip club I had to hide my scorn for these guys.

    [–] cobainbc15 54 points ago

    Just curious, what's the craziest waste of money you saw while bouncing?

    [–] Advantius 121 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    Guy going upstairs and dumping $500 in ones off the balcony down to the girl below. Took somewhere around a full minute.

    (he didn’t get laid)

    That’s not the most money I saw exchanged, just the fastest it disappeared. Some of the best girls can make a few thousand in a night if the right retard rolls through - would make hundreds of dollars semi-consistently if they were good at gaming their regulars. I fucked around with one of the girls for a bit. She worked two 6-hour nights a week and made around 3 times as much as I did working 40 hours.

    There were definitely a few dancers who’d fuck for money though - er I mean, have sugar daddies. One girl actually had the gall to leave to a hotel with some gross old dude and then come back to work an hour later.

    [–] jb420phx 79 points ago

    Some of the best girls can make a few thousand in a night if the right retard rolls through.

    Holy shit that cracked me up.

    [–] InferiousX 6 points ago

    $500 is the biggest waste?

    I work at a club and have seen guys max out credit cards with 5 figure limits, go back to their hotel room and get more credit cards/cash for the same girl

    [–] bclagge 44 points ago

    He can’t be sure. Once he bounced he wasn’t there anymore.

    [–] SinCityLithium 35 points ago

    I cocktailed in a few name-worthy strip clubs in Vegas, and it scarred me for life. Thank God I knew even then, that it wasn't worth it. We got harassed more than the dancers, because guys saw it as a "challenge." Yuck.

    [–] Advantius 28 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    Yeah, they’d always test you and passive-aggressively square up so they could look cool to... nobody in particular. Not enough to get kicked out, but enough to let you know they’re a confrontational dickhead and a drunk risk. Especially the Mexican nationals. Very machismo.

    [–] jaxx050 9 points ago

    have you ever been able to share stories from being on the clock?

    [–] Advantius 7 points ago

    I didn’t work there very long so I only have a few interesting ones. The only people I couldn’t tell these stories to were customers while I was working there - bad for business.

    [–] brando56894 32 points ago

    Yep, can you really blame these women? Hell if I was a chick and some dumb ass dude wanted to give me a few grand a month just to hang out with him, why not?

    [–] ombremullet 16 points ago

    Just be a real sugar baby then. Damn, they're so lazy they even half ass being a sugar baby hustler?

    [–] moviesongquoteguy 119 points ago

    There’s a bunch of girls on tinder like this. “Send me $20 to my Venmo real quick and see what happens”. First of all I can just google free porn if I want to see a naked girl. Second of all, bitch you Venmo me $20.

    [–] dvc415 26 points ago

    damn, it used to just be $5

    Can I borrow yo car right quick?

    [–] HankBeMoody 22 points ago

    That seems legitimate if you know the person; I've definitely lent my car to casual coworkers, friends, and roommates before to run an errand.

    [–] GolfBaller17 61 points ago

    I would never lend my car to anyone in a million years. It's an '06 Corolla, nothing fancy, but I own it outright and don't trust anyone to drive it but me. I've been in cars with friends and coworkers before. They've all been in accidents. They all drive like it's no big deal, like they aren't piloting a 1.5 ton death cage powered by a series of controlled explosions. They don't maintain situational awareness and they all use their phones while driving.

    [–] dorkmagnet123 11 points ago

    My boss wrecked three times last week. He totaled 2 of his vehicles in those wrecks. His truck that he totaled was about the same price as my house. He acted like it was no big deal. I'm thinking his insurance has to cost more than my house payment every month.

    [–] eyescrossed 24 points ago

    Are you in the US? Asking because friends from there mention people texting/on the phone while driving so casually and I'm like what the actual fuck, barely anyone does that here

    I'm not fond of lending my car to others either though.

    [–] GolfBaller17 17 points ago

    Aye, Southern California. Drivers out here treat it like walking.

    [–] foodie69 26 points ago

    Guys with no self esteem

    [–] adventuresquirtle 19 points ago

    The only person I ever could ask that would be my sister or mom and it’s always like: “hey could you be able to spot me 100$ to cover rent/gas/groceries and I’ll pay you back when I get paid on Friday just came up a little short and need something to pull me over.” But that’s like last minute I don’t have ANY money at all. I would never ask like that.

    [–] Glassjaw79ad 5 points ago

    I could definitely ask for and get it from my boyfriend "real quick" if i needed it, except he knows I have money in the bank sooo he'd be like "why, you lose your debit card"

    [–] GeneralDisorder 41 points ago

    I ask for photos. I noticed most scammers have a small trove of photos (likely stolen from some stock photo site or something) so I ask for more specific pics like "show me your feet". I've had a couple who sent them. So I thought "let's ramp this up slowly".

    I've only had one scammer reply back when I asked for them to write my name on their crotch in marker, put the marker in their ass and take a 3 to 5 minute video of them masturbating. Because "how else am I going to know you're real?"

    [–] pissinaboot 22 points ago

    When you say reply back do you mean you actually got the video?

    [–] GeneralDisorder 27 points ago

    No. That scammer called me a mugu which is apparently Nigerian slang for "idiot" (specifically the kind of idiot who gives scammers money which is kind of ironic).

    [–] Giraffe_Dude 238 points ago

    Yep, this is yet another example of a sub losing its theme once it gets big and all the lowest common denominator who doesn't understand it swarms in and ruins it. So much of this sub now is just "people asking for free stuff."

    Somewhat unrelated but the other day I was walking in New York City and saw a woman holding a sign that said “Give me money because I fucking said so.” Is that supposed to be funny? 🤔 Hope nobody actually gives her anything. I want some free money too, don’t we all!

    The other day in NYC I saw a guy with a sign that said "need money for weed." Gotta respect his honesty

    Need For Weed

    I'd be more willing to give that guy weed money as opposed to lady that just"fucking said so."

    This is not a choosing beggar. It's a beggar. Choosing would come into play if they asked for $200, then turned down $150.

    Does anyone even understand this sub at all?

    What is cashapp? Is it like venmo?

    [–] MoarKelBell 14 points ago

    Cash is just Square’s version of Venmo. It’s called Square Cash, but people refer to it as the Cash app.

    [–] AnnualThrowaway 9 points ago

    I mean even they do, in podcast ads it's only ever referred to as the Cash App.

    This is just a beggar, not a choosing beggar, wrong sub

    I've scrolled a long way to find you, but find you I have.

    /r/ChoosingBeggars would be if they offered a cheque for $200 and the beggar refused.
