People Are Sharing Common Things That Are Actually 100% A Scam

On Friday, Reddit user u/rock4lite asked people, "Whats a scam most people dont even realize is a scam?" It led to people sharing things, items, "jobs," activities, etc. stuff we've all spent time and money on that are actually just B.S. scams.

Here's what they said:


1. Life coaches:
"Im most intrigued by the vague life coaches, who use lots of big words and mention specific figures they have supposedly earned, but there is no clarity on what exactly they do."

u/immoreoriginalmate

2. These "roles":
"If someone's 'job' is based more around recruiting people for the 'company' than selling an actual product and they aren't literally a hiring manager for HR, there's a good chance they're part of a pyramid scheme."

u/ur_boy_skinny_p*nis

3. Women's anything:
"'Woman's' anything. 90% are just colored different. Razors are the biggest offenders IMOP."

u/Grondosos

4. Men's anything:
"Mens premium brand razors, shampoo, wipes. Getting charged 2-3 times for similar products in 'manlier' packaging."

u/Chant1llyLace

5. Extended warranties:
"Usually you're paying extra for the warranty and extra on top of that as a 'labor cost' of whoever is fixing the device. Cheaper than a new device? Sure, but still pricey."

u/KingGooma

6. Herbalife:
"It's an MLM."

u/Pipe_Nacho

7. Gift card fees:
"If you want to buy someone a gift card through Visa or some other company, you're paying $5.00+ as a fee before spending more money to put on the card. 'Here's your $50 gift card that cost me $57!'"

u/bitterherpes

8. Diamonds:
"Diamonds are a fairly common gemstone, but the world's supplier of them is a monopoly and they hoard the majority of their stock to jack the prices up. Emeralds, rubies and sapphires are actually rarer than diamonds but cost less because of this."

u/Powerofgodandanime17

9. Superfoods:
"The concept of 'superfoods' and 'organic' anything. I work at a smoothie bowl place, and people will come in and literally pile1500 calories full of peanut butter and granola into a bowl and think it's healthy because they put some superfood organic something into a bowl. It's literally pumpkin granola cereal from the store down the street, it's not going to cure cancer."

u/plantayshun_610

10. Ordering a bottle of wine/pitchers of beer at a restaurant:
"Ordering a full carafe of wine in a restaurant. Where I work, a full carafe can fill 4-5 glasses. Ordering 5 glasses of some of our types of wine is actually $1 to $2 cheaper than the full carafe. Check the prices and do the math before ordering! Same goes for pitchers of beer."

image

11. Unpaid internships:
"Unpaid internships what the actual fu*k is wrong with America?"

u/benjamynt

12. Lottery tickets:
"When I was a kid my brother would tell me the lottery is 'a tax on stupid people.'"

u/Luke10124

13. Expensive HDMI cables:
"HDMI is digital. It either works or doesn't, basically."

u/aaaaaaaarrrrrgh

Yup, only way I'm working for free is if I own it or I somehow stumble into a role working directly with someone like Warren Buffett

Youre definitely right but you could buy the cheapest HDMI and it still gets the job done.

I agree with pretty much all the list.. except 12 really
Some ppl are gambling addicts
I buy one lotto ticket every year because why not

Unpaid internships should be illegal in most cases

Nah it's not really that it's sh*t like DUDE wipes which are the same wipes as the others but just wants you to feel masculine while buying them

I've seen other dumb sh*t like this in stores
Kleenex for men..etc

That's not true.

4k and/or high framerates require HDMI 2.0* or whatever level

5. Extended warranties:
"Usually you're paying extra for the warranty and extra on top of that as a 'labor cost' of whoever is fixing the device. Cheaper than a new device? Sure, but still pricey."

This is plain wrong. Anyone who has bought any technology in their life ought to know there's a reason you get a free 1 or 2 year warranty. It's because barely anything will happen to your sh*t during that period and it's only after when sh*t usually goes bad and guess what... if you didn't extend your warranty you now have to pay even more than what it would have costed to extend it to fix your sh*t.

The remainder is mostly accurate though

Just googled it bro they got some on the low end for

$5

And the high end cost

They both will do exactly the same thing.... One might last longer. Only difference.

Shipping insurance....Usps ups FedEx

Pay initial money for the company to take your package and deliver it to a destination.


Pay extra money ala insurance so in case the company loses or damages your product while it's in their possession...you are covered, depending on if you paid enough extra money to cover the full cost of the product lol

Dunno about ups and FedEx but USPS then has a someone to analyze the claims and can deny them...even tho everything was out of the customers hands

Oh whether they deny/accept your claim....USPS still keeps shipping money

Its a way to keep poor people who need the money upfront from getting said internship and using it to secure the more lucrative jobs down the line
