I received a phone call from this number with an automated voice who stated the following in a mildly pleasant accent:
“Unintelligible -administration- the reason of this call is to inform you our department has decided suspend your Social Insurance Number and it’s benefits. As we have recieved complaints of suspicious activity on your Social Insurance Number. Your Social Insurance Number is getting used illegaly for money laundering and fake loans. If this is not getting done by you, please press one to speak with our officer to resolve this. Prevent your social insurance number from suspension. Thank you.”
I’ve tried to call back this number using Pop-Tox, and it says this number is not in service.
Whatever you do, do not give away your name, voice inflections or anything else relevant when answering these calls. Better yet, ignore and block them asap! For more info on that, check out this article here: Why Phone Fraud Starts With A Silent Call
Numbers I’ve received this call from so far are as follows:
If you’ve ever posted a link from the same site on Facebook, you’ll sometimes notice that the preview image doesn’t match the data you know is on that site. To fix this, you’ll need to refresh your posts URL.
Why? you ask. Well, Facebook caches information that they took from their first scan of the page, and continues to draw on this information, until told to update!
Why doesn’t deleting and re-posting the link work? Facebook’s cache is holding that original scan the link, and will continue to give you and everyone else the same outdated preview.
How do you fix this???
There are three methods you can try to update Facebook’s cache, I have written one out here, with a link to the original article by John Doppler that showed me how to update it, as well as two more methods, which are a bit harder.
Step 1: Click the date and time stamp under your name at the top of the post.
Step 2: CLICK THE THREE DOTS In the upper right hand side of the post across From your name, and choose the “Refresh share attachment” option.
I’m curious to know what would you have done if you were one of these people who ended up receiving, or was blamed for sending these?? Or, if you were one of those people, what was the text you got?? Let’s get the comments going below!!
Many of you in the Cosplayer world have either heard of or used Tik-Tok. If this is you, please uninstall it, or at least be aware of what this Tool is actually doing.

I’m putting on the spotlight this week my incredible musician friend Jeanot KERMODE!!! When I was first introduced to this talented artist, up until this point I had not met a musician as real and as humble as he. Specializing in Electronic, Bass and House, He still maintains this humbleness in his music, bringing forward a fresh new outlook in each track. On that note, he’s just released ‘Whip It‘, so what better excuse to check out his stuff!! Woohoo! Keep them tunes coming!!!!!
I’ve reached out to him for tracks to run while I’m gaming, which he graciously supplied but I’ve been slow getting them up to stream! I’ll tag them as #KERMODE so watch for and tune in for a treat!
To support, book him for an event, listen to his music, or check out his art, click below!
