A young man divided Redditors after he called his sister stupid when she fell for an online scam. But who could pass up a chance to control the world for just a few hundred bucks? Here is the full story.
She Shocked Him
OP is a young man whose 21-year-old sister recently left him with his mouth hanging open.
She Couldn’t Pass It Up
It all started when a group from Cameroon contacted OP’s sister to offer her the chance of a lifetime.
She Would Have Unlimited Power
For just $666, OP’s sister could sign up to become part of the Illuminati.
It’s an organization well-known for its power and plans for world domination.
She Was Convinced
While normal people dismiss the Illuminati as nothing but a conspiracy theory, OP’s sister was convinced they were real.
They Won Her Over
Or rather, the group from Cameroon convinced OP’s sister that the Illuminati were real.
They Were Polished
After all, they had an all-out campaign on social media and even various videos online that helped prove the whole thing was legit.
OP himself had seen the full rundown.
He Thought His Family Was Safe
OP never thought anyone he knew would get sucked into what he considered false promises, though.
It Was a Dream Come True
Just send in your money, the group said, and you’d get a job with the Illuminati – a paying job, with benefits and prestige that someone like OP couldn’t even dream of.
She Needed Their Help
That’s why OP was so shocked when his sister came to him and his brother asking for help.
There Was a Snag
She had the chance to join the Illuminati, she told OP. But she ran into a problem.
The Bank Blocked Her
Specifically, OP’s sister had tried to transfer the $666 from her bank account to the Cameroon group.
But her bank blocked the transaction and said the whole thing was fraudulent.
She Had to Pony Up
So that’s when OP’s sister came to her brothers for help.
She needed to find another way to pay her Illuminati dues.
They Had to Talk It Over
After she made that request, OP was discussing the situation with his brother.
He Was Horrified
OP told his bro that he never thought anyone he knew would be stupid enough to fall for the Illuminati scam.
He was horrified that a blood relative had been sucked in.
She Caught Him in the Act
Turns out, OP’s sister was closer than he thought, and she heard the whole thing.
She Tattled on Him
After OP let rip with just how stupid he thought his sister was, she broke into tears and ran to tell their parents.
He Stood His Ground
OP’s folks confronted him right away, and he admitted what he said. But he wouldn’t back down.
He Wants Them to Attack
Now, OP’s parents want him to apologize to his sister, but he thinks they should all double down instead. How will she learn her lesson if they coddle her?
He’s Trying to Protect Her
Other members of his family think OP is being a complete jerk to his sister…but he just can’t bring himself to sugarcoat how dumb she was in this situation.
Maybe He Was a Little Harsh?
Redditors are torn in their reactions to this situation.
Many of them agree with OP and think his sister needs some tough love so the point gets through to her.
But others say OP is being way too harsh for a simple mistake that’s happened to many people. They think he should lighten up.
