    I just got one right now and I looked it up bc if Venmo is doing that UK it would be on their website but this website came up I'm glad to know

  • August 19, 2020 at 9:44 PM by an anonymous user from: Bentonville, Arkansas, United States

    If you look very carefully in Venmo you can see who in your Facebook friends group paid who. This is completely insane. Finding your phone number is pretty easy given your location and name. I got this message after some tenant convinced me to come into the modern age to accept rent. The best place to report this is the company who hosts the site the link is on. It costs the scammers money to set up a new domain name. Do not click the link in the text. Instead Google whois. Search for the domain. It will include the company that hosts their content. Complaining to them is likely more effective than contacting a federal agency.
