Very interesting story. We should all be like Sarah. I would of called my broker in the US and asked if there was an IPO for starlink. Sarah could of played along and said that she would return the call and report this. Telephone scammers try to steal your money or personal information. Scams may come through phone calls from real people, robocalls, or text messages. Callers often make false promises, such as opportunities to buy products, invest your money, or receive free product trials. They may also offer you money through free grants and lotteries. Some scammers may call with threats of jail or lawsuits if you don’t pay them.
It's important to report phone scams to federal agencies. They can’t investigate individual cases. But your report can help them collect evidence for lawsuits against scammers.
Bernie Madoff. Madoff's Wall Street investment securities firm bilked investors out of $64.8 billion in the largest Ponzi scheme ever. Instead of paying returns to investors out of profits, they were paid with their own money or that of other investors.
