Marco Bello/AFP/Getty Images Hackers are reportedly gaining access to unsuspecting users’ Cash App accounts and draining their cash balances, according to Vice News. The Cash App is a popular mobile payment service developed by Block (formerly Square), run by former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
Vice News reports that hackers have discovered a way to exploit the popular payment platform Cash App and break into users’ accounts, stealing their money. Vice News spoke to a number of victims, one of which claims that Cash App has not reimbursed their stolen funds. (Joe Raedle /Getty) (Reuters) Liz Shelby, who said their son was a victim of the hacking, told Vice News: “It’s scary! My son saved up some cash for a small vacation with his grandma. We put it in his Cash App before he left. He called me on Aug. 9, and told me that his money was gone.”
Shelby said that after she accessed the account, she discovered that someone else had also logged into it and sent themselves the money. Shelby contacted Cash App support but claims they were unhelpful. “I’m not getting anywhere and I’m sure my son will never get his money back,” she added.
Cash App is one of the most popular online payment services with over 50 million downloads from the Google Play Store. The app is owned by the payment services company Block, formerly known as Square, helmed by former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
Another victim, Marvis Herring, claimed that hackers attempted to steal $1,400 via two $700 payments but that his bank blocked the transactions. “The main thing I thought was weird is that I went to change my account password and there really isn’t a password for Cash App accounts,” Herring said.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
