Monday News Rush Featuring The Rise Of Depop Scammers.
It’s CULTED with your NEWS RUSH for this Monday morning.
First up, a new investigation by Vice has revealed that scammers are targeting unsuspecting Depop customers by selling items then vanishing once payment has been received.
Nintendo Switches, Animal Crossing consoles and AirPods were all listed as the stand-out items for scammers, with the sellers insisting the sales happen via direct bank transfer or Paypal’s ‘friends and family’ option, none of which protect the buyer against scams.
In other news, Pyer Moss will hold drive-in premieres for its new film ‘American, Also’, following social distancing and lockdown requirements of course. The film follows Kerby Jean-Raymond and his team producing the Pyer Moss runway show for September 2019.
Pyer Moss has just released the initial trailer for the film with release dates set to be announced in summer.
Next up, Yoon Ahn has announced that the AMBUSH x Nike Dunk is being released in 2 more colourways.
AMBUSH’s co-founder Yoon said in an Insta post “the launch is a bit delayed due to the current situation, but I promise you it’s gonna be worth the wait.”
There is no official release date for the new colourways as of yet.
And that’s all for today.
It’s Sam with CULTED. Have a great start to your week.
