FOR RECOVERING OF STOLEN OR LOST CRYPTOS BACK!!!
FOR RECOVERING OF STOLEN OR LOST CRYPTOS BACK!!!!

I lost my bitcoin to fake blockchain.com impostors on Instagram, they contacted me as blockchain official support and I fell stupidly for their mischievous act, this made them gain access into my blockchain wallet account, whereby 4.0938 btc was stolen from my wallet in total .I was almost in a comma and dumbfounded because this was all my savings I banked up on , waiting for bitcoin rate to improve . Then my niece recommended me to an expert on crypto recovery, So i made my researched online about this recovery expert , with the contact address- MORRIS GRAY 830 @gmail. com. I wrote directly to the specialist explaining my loss. Hence, he helped me recover 97% of my bitcoin just after 4days. He helped me launch the recovery program , and the culprits were identified as well , all thanks to his expertise . I hope I have been able to help someone as well . Reach out to this recovery specialist MR MORRIS GRAY, to recover your lost funds from any form of online scam......\\

being asked to verify if I'm human over and over again.
every time I go on a story, it keeps telling me to verify if I'm human, and it just keeps doing that over and over again.

it's been doing this for me for days now, and I'm getting pretty annoyed now, I have fanfic reviews I need to make dang it.

Guest      20 days ago  # + 0 -

well, I still like making reviews for any story I want to leave a review on.

but as of currently, I can't do that, as I can't even go on any story without the site telling me to verify if I'm human over and over again, and this has been going on for me for days now.

Ffnet error
I've had this bug where it won't load or download stories I haven't had before, but normally it got resolved after restarting my phone or clearing cache. Now i've reinstalled the app and it won't even show my previous downloads and the app doesn't work at all. I'm worried if my downloads will ever show up again, it will be a pain downloading them all over ????

Guest      130 days ago  # + 0 -

Late childhood (9-almost-10ish) was spent there lol... Was looking for any possible sequels to this show I was watching & I found a fanfic. I thought it was official at first but after sum time I found out it wasnt but still, it was nice reading AUs & other stuff. A few months later I looked up sum fanfics of a franchise from the show I was watching and boom. When i was 11 I was a rlly avid reader of fanfics already (I knew how to tell smut & avoided such fics most of the time) knew lots of authors but didnt know how to review (I also knew boy ao3 & wattpad but I found FFN more easier to navigate so I was there most of the time) till I turned like 12 maybe. Then I waited till I was 13 to make an email & an account there. Few months later I wrote a story there. When i had an otp tho, i started to read from AO3 cause more fics of it were there. So yeah, even if now I don't visit there as much, I still read & write there. I also have more readers r also from FFN than the other two websites. So yeah, it was fun. Very fun. It holds a very special place in my heart, and I don't wanna see it go, ever.

Try Using ADRIAN ,although they are slightly expensive but they know exactly what they are doing. Always make research before hiring a hacker and never hire a hacker without been sure of their services. Cause i had been scammed by fake hackers before getting to know Adrian. You can use " Hackwithadrianlamo @ gmail com " and you may be able to get some answers to numerous questions from them.

Hello

I have been trying to go onto the website to read the things i love but it always says

Checking your browser[

it has been doing that for the past 3 days and it is getting really damn annoying

Fucking Annoyed      641 days ago  # + 0 -
It doesn't work on Mobile. I have an older phone, and frankly, I shouldn't have to get a new one just for one damn site to load. It's literally always worked for me until this year, now I keep getting asked to complete some kind of Captcha. Whenever I do and press next, nothing happens. The screen just stays blank, or I can't even get to another screen to complete it. Then at the bottom, there's my IP address and under it there's a blue highlighted word called Cloudflare. Whenever I click on it, I keep coming to a page claiming that there's some kind of 500 error, and that it's a Host Error. So apparently it's something on their end that's not working, but that's obviously not the case. I've checked other "is it down" sites, and most of them say that it's working, there's one that says it's completely down and that they can't connect to the servers. I would really like it if someone figured this shit out. Like I said, the site quit working for me the beginning of this year. It's only mobile where it's not working, and while I can read shit on my computer, I'd rather read on mobile since it looks better and is easier to see the words.

Fanfiction.net website is not working for me. I checked it out, and it seems that no one is more of a mark than me for getting banned from any site. Hey, as long as I have my website, I'll be fine. Until I get rid of it, though, I can't post any of my stories. Again, thanks so much for making me, and countless others, spend our money to get these works (which to an extent are very good, too, and I mean that in every way!). It has gone down every time I try to upload. Did I get hacked? Should I reboot the site? I don't want to be responsible for leaving posts empty or not receiving a reply. Thanks in advance. Any help would be great.
