    Hello All,

    I was contacted on Instagram by this user with the following message.

    I did check the profile and it seems to be associated with a website too.

    I am not saying by any means that this is associated to FM.

    Sharing it here only to gather some feedback and opinions.

    Thanks,

    Since the actual Illuminati are all dead, what are the chances ghosts are able to type on a computer?

    But for a monthly subscription of actual money you can find out there are actual people out there. Who will teach YOU how to use a keyboard to get people to pay YOU a monthly subscription fee. Obviously the computer tracking system will pay a percentage of that to your upline. Oops, I mean your sponsor.

    I figure it's technically a ponzi scheme, which is a specific type of scam.

    There's quite a few people online that have had their accounts compromised due to having malware or trojans on their computer. Most of the time, this happens because of the curiosity of the recipient because once the link is clicked, the malware or trojan is downloaded to their computer. Afterwards, that computer is used to send out more emails attempting to catch other people. In the worst case your personal information is stolen.

    IMO, there's very little chance that a group is going to share all those things online for a small fee. You would need to go to meetings for that.

    Welcome to the 1960s invention of a conspiracy theory, brought to you by the Church of Discordia.
    I received the same friend request, marked it as spam.

    There is quite many of those illuminati recruiting pages on instagram. Wouldn't think any of them are anything more than a scam.

    I also got a message from page called Freemason_worldwide that first said only "are thy worthy" Where I replied "I sure hope so. :) " THeir reply was "You have to be more serious if you wish to be part of the brotherhood" My answer was "I am already a master mason.Thank you"
    Then I got curious and asked them witch grand lodge they are affiliated to and got reply that they where official site for Grand Lodge Of Russia. Ofcourse I reported that to GLOR in instagram and just in two days the page that contacted me was gone from the instagram. I assume they where not actual representative of GLOR after all.

    Anyone claiming to grant these luxuries without your hard work is lying and running a complete scam!

    I know people who want to join freemasonry just to get rich and I laugh. I tell them to get a job then climb the corporate ladder to success. No group or organization can make you rich, in here to advance myself in the discipline of the mind.
