  1. Then the transfer didn't go through paypal. You transferred it directly from you bank to their bank account. Perhaps at some points in this transaction you were on a fake paypal website. I would never buy anything of any significant value without doing it in person or with a very reputable business that you can verify. What happened to you sounds similar to a common internet scam. https://www.experian.com/blogs/ask-experian/fbi-warns-of-scam-targeting-car-buyers/ Sorry to hear you got scammed.
  2. Arrest or kill a low or high level drug dealer and you have just created a job opportunity for the next one. Often in the US when there is a big take down of a major drug ring street violence will increase for a few months as the lower level drug gangs fight it out to see who gets the former dealers territory to become the next major drug dealer. This is a never ending cycle as long as drugs are illegal and their is a huge profit to made from the black market.
  3. That is why any crypto currencies you have on an exchange which are not being actively traded by you should be moved to a private wallet that you control the keys for rather than leaving it on an exchange. As the saying goes for crypto currencies. Not your keys not your crypto. Of course there are risks to holding your own keys where you can lose them so best do your research and understand the risks of both and how best to protect your crypto assets.
  4. Of course you should do your due diligence and understand what you are investing in. With regards to crypto as a techie, computer programmer, etc. I understand the technology but also understand how volatile the price can be on such a speculative asset. At 10 years old it has matured a great deal more than the early adopters thought it would. There now are a growing number of investment firms who are hedging their bets by obtaining small positions in bitcoin and some of the better established 'alt coins' as they are called.
  5. With the caveat to only invest money you can afford to lose, the price of bitcoin got down to $3150 USD last Nov 2018 and within the last month was back up to $14,000 USD. Currently trading at $9900. So you could have made a tidy profit.
  6. My family doctor recommended I see an orthopedist who after seeing xrays of my spine recommended the physical therapy. If that hadn't work, spinal injections with last resort of spinal surgery. I know several people who have had stem cell treatments for their spine which have worked for them to reduce back pain.
  7. Economic growth can effect population growth. For a very poor country economic growth which results in better infrastructure for water, food, power, etc. can increase population growth. But as the economy modernizes even further population growth starts declining.
  8. That works great until the one time when there is a glitch and the payment can't be made resulting in late fee's, etc. I like to pay at least 2-3 business days before a bill is due just to ensure I have time to resolve any payment issues if there is a glitch.
  9. I pay as much as I can online also. Everything except my credit card payments are paid by a 1.5% cashback visa card. I just wait until the new billing cycle starts on the visa then do the payments. Doesn't matter what day since it is on the new billing cycle and since I always pay my credit card in full each month, there are no fees.
  10. Wow. I was wondering why your treatment required a few days stay at the hospital. That explains it. Hope this round of treatment finally takes care of that for you.
  11. Glad to hear everything went well. Thanks for the report.
  12. Boiling does not get rid of heavy metals like lead. Unless you capture the steam and distill it.
  13. Good idea. I wouldn't drink the tap water unless water from your taps tested clean. Even if the water company is producing potable water there is no guarantee that it is not picking up bad stuff like lead or bacteria in the pipes somewhere between the water plant and your house.
  14. I wonder if that would be legally binding. Seems you are being forced to sign that under duress. Of course 'they' make the laws and the case would go before 'their' judges. So just go sit on the 'group W' bench and wait for the blind judge to call your case.
  15. That is in line with what I saw 4 years ago in Baguio. New condo prices were approximately 100k pesos per sqm. Seems that price at that time was pretty common across most larger cities in the Philippines.
