TIFU by making a North Korea joke to pay my power bill

Author: /u/ArtificialFate

Today I learned that Venmo takes the subject of your payment very seriously.

Every month when the power bill comes up, my roommate alerts us of in a comical manner. We've received the Star Wars title scrawl with the text reworded to describe the bill, the Stranger Things intro sequence, you get the idea. Well this time I get a link to a subtitled North Korean news broadcast, link here. So naturally I send my roommate the money via Venmo with the subject "North Korea is best Korea."

Within seconds, I get a notification in the Venmo app that my payment has been halted pending review by Venmo's compliance department per Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) guidelines. There is a 48hr hold on the payment and I'm required to submit a statement of sorts explaining my payment. It's been about an hour and I've already had a phone call with the customer service department that can be summed up as "Can you not??"

It would seem that there is a list of words that will get you into trouble on Venmo, but all the usual jokes about cocaine and hookers are good-to-go. It's been a fun morning.

TL;DR: Paid power bill with subject "North Korea is best Korea." Got flagged per Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) guidelines. Still haven't been able to pay the power bill...

Edit: Here's the Stranger Things one he did for us last month: Removed as it had our actual names on it

Edit #2: And the Star Wars one: https://brorlandi.github.io/StarWarsIntroCreator/#!/AKrfBcVlS4JDf-QEeKBw

Edit #3: Despite all this annoyance, Venmo is still really useful and I'd recommend it. Just avoid funding rogue states and terrorists while you pay for mundane items. It's hard, but I'm sure you can manage.

Edit #4: They let the payment go through. At least their CS dept is pretty quick on these things. I hope that video made someone's day at Venmo. Now back to funding rogue states and terrorist groups. My monthly payments to the KGB and ISIS are late...

Edit #5: Removed Stranger Things link due to personal info issues.

Edit #6: Looks like the link to the vid in question is currently kill. Not sure if hug o' death or what. Meh, just keep F5'ing. What could go wrong?

Edit #7: Link is no longer kill. Be gentle.

Edit #7: Obligatory "Thanks for the gold kind stranger" or whatever edit.

Edit #8: Proof for the doubters.

Edit #9: No mirror for the link available. My roommate whipped it up at his office and we don't have a local copy of it. Hopefully the reddit hug ends soon enough for people to be able to view it. Sorry :(

LPT: If you’re buying a used car, make sure to check that the check engine light turns on when you insert the key into the 2nd position and the dash lights up. If not, it likely means they removed the bulb to hide a problem.

Having a friend with or buying a cheap scan tool alleviates this but if you don’t have access to one this is a great way to double check you’re not getting ripped off.

I am Scott Kelly, former NASA astronaut and author of ENDURANCE—ask me anything!

Author: /u/StationCDRKelly

Hello Reddit! My name is Scott Kelly. I am a former NASA astronaut who spent a year living aboard the International Space Station: the first American to spend a nearly whole year in space continuously and the record-holder for longest duration in space by an American. I wrote a book, Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery, about that record breaking year and how I got there—and it hits shelves tomorrow.

I'm ready to answer questions about my year in space, my experiences with NASA, writing a book, and more. Here's proof: https://twitter.com/StationCDRKelly/status/919937532032196609

https://youtu.be/cQC4hIsn4Ow

What happens when you cry in space? Space gorilla explains! What else do you want to know about? Ask me Anything now!

EDIT: Thank you everyone for your questions. I'm taking off now, but I really enjoyed talking with you all.
