Officials Arrest Self-Proclaimed Influencer For Fraud After Seeing Her Instagram Account

Many of the great visionaries of our time have lived by the motto “fake it, till you make it.” Faking it, however, doesn’t constitute breaking the law. Do you need proof?

Just take a look at the recent college bribery scandal or Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes who lied about her startup to garner millions from investors.

Ironically the lies are only revealed until you have actually made it and by then it’s too late — you’re done. That’s what is going down with a young self-proclaimed social media influencer.

A 26-year-old Miami “influencer” got herself and parents arrested after authorities caught wind of her Instagram account.

Jenny Ambuila, a student at the University of Miami, was in Colombia with her parents during a recent holiday, which is also where her family is from. It is there that police officials arrested her parents and put her on house arrest. Officials charged them with fraud.

Jenny’s father Omar Ambuila worked at the Port Authority in Colombia and reportedly has a salary of $3,000 a month. That kind of salary doesn’t afford Lamborghinis, Chanel, or lavish trips to Paris. Though, that’s precisely what you’ll see from Jenny’s IG.

It was in 2018 that she began posting images of shopping sprees. That’s what led authorities to crack the case on this money laundering scheme.

According to the Daily Mail, Colombian authorities have been trying to close in on the corruption at the port, which is where her dad worked.

“This is a fundamental case in our fight against smuggling. We are going after all of this corrupt structure, and the resources behind them,” Andres Jimenez, a Colombian prosecutor, told a local radio station, according to the British tabloid.

While Jenny is under house arrest, she’s still posting on social media.

Jenny said in a recent Insta-story that her Lamborghini was given to her because she’s an influencer, but with only 4,000 followers since she launched her account last year, we’d hardly consider her an influencer.

Her father reportedly allowed untaxed good to enter Colombia and took millions from it.

The arrests in Colombia also included another customs official that worked alongside him. The Mail reports that he “received at least $600,000 in bribes since 2012 in overseas payments.”

She might not have influencer cred, but she’s officially making headlines. And, you know what they say “any press is good press.” Congrats!

Jenny Solares Is One IG Creator Everyone Needs To Follow

A year in quarantine has led so many of us to doom scroll and get lost in social media. As a result, some people are getting more recognition and one person who should be getting your attention is Jenny Solares, or @es_jenny_solares on Instagram.

Jenny Solares is here with the relatable content we all want.

The Guatemalan content creator knows what the people want to see. How many times have you heard someone say that they like a woman who can eat? Well, as Jenny urges, prove it, y’all. Take your lady out and get her all of the food that she wants. Let’s go!

Now, that’s how you add salsa to someone’s food. If you didn’t already think this way when adding salsa to your tacos, you definitely will now. It’s just impossible not to.

We also love seeing her collaborating with Estefania Saavedra, a fellow Latina creator. A rising tide lifts all boats so we appreciate seeing these Latinas working together.

Solares is even creating brand new identities.

Cholas will forever have a place in our hearts. We know cholas. We love cholas. We are related to cholas. Solares’ creation of the glola is truly a work of art. Just because you’re a chola doesn’t mean you can’t love glitter and colors.

She’s even got some of the Covid humor in check.

There are going to be so many school assignments about this year in the coming years. Kids will be learning about the time the world stood still as we battled an out-of-control virus. It is going to be us having to tell the little ones about that time and it’s going to be rough. Get ready to reliving everything we have been dealing with for the last year.

On top of all of the comedy, Solares is ready to show her fans some real love for their support.

“Thank you all for letting me be me. Thank you for appreciating my silliness, my craziness, my songs, my dances, my imperfections,” Solares tells her fans in a year-end video. “Thank you for letting me be myself. This year was full of so much sadness, uncertainty, frustration, and, for a lot of people, loneliness. Thank you all for not letting me feel that loneliness.”

Thank you, Jenny. Your comedy has been a bright spot for so many during an incredibly hard and sad year.

Want To Make Money On OnlyFans? It’s A Lot More Complicated Than You Might Think

Want To Make Money On OnlyFans? It’s A Lot More Complicated Than You Might Think

Technology has changed the way we do a lot of things, with sex work being one of the industries that’s seen some of the biggest shifts. Where in the past people would have to contact producers, directors, and agents before getting started – with them taking profits and calling the shots as a result – it’s not possible to make sex work for you.

One of the platforms that’s exploded in recent years is OnlyFans, which is allowing content creators to charge a monthly fee that allows customers to see pictures and videos. With OnlyFans comes the added benefit of freedom, with creators choosing what they post and when, giving the platform 20% of profits and keeping the rest. But, it’s often touted as something of a get-rich-quick scheme. But is it?

OnlyFans is different from other platforms but just how much?

In effect, OnlyFans is one of the rare spaces where sex workers have the power. The biggest difference between OnlyFans and other platforms of its kind is that it allows sexually explicit content, and its pay model is similar to camming sites in that it allows for tipping and pay-per-view content on top of the subscription fee.

The model’s brilliance is in its simplicity, and it’s revolutionary in how it prioritizes the agency of creators, offering them the ability to have autonomy over their bodies, their content, and their prices.

The company also offers free legal services to all of the creators, working quickly and swiftly to remove any leaked content (and yes, a lot of the sexually explicit content is leaked to PornHub). Of course, this isn’t a charitable enterprise: OnlyFans takes a 20 percent cut of its creators’ profits, and with 75 million active users, the company has been turning a profit of its own since its inception. 

So how much can you realistically make?

With claims from the company that they’ve paid out $725 million to its 450,000 content creators, and celebrities including Cardi B, Blac Chyna, and Tyler Posey registered to the subscription service – not to mention Bella Thorne, who claims to have made $2 million from it in less than a week – it’s easy to see why it’s an attractive option. Like any form of work, though, you get what you put in, as evidenced by those who use OnlyFans to sell photos.

Subscriptions to an OnlyFans account start from $5 and move their way up to $25 a month. Although there’s no cap on what you make, it does vary a lot between smaller and larger creators, so it’s important to be realistic.

What kind of content should you be uploading to the site?

OnlyFans is primarily for adult content, but there are a number of creators who use it for different reasons. Some food and fitness influencers share premium recipes and workouts to their paying subscribers.

You have absolute choice over what you post but, as mentioned, you’ll likely get requests from subscribers for specific things. Although you might make extra money from these requests, only ever do what you feel comfortable with.

Before you get into things, perhaps write a list of absolute ‘no’ content, and this can act as your benchmark for what you’re happy to do. From there, it’s just about your own creativity and imagination.

Now, how do you get those followers and their coins?

For established adult performers, the fans you have already can be translated onto OnlyFans. However, all of the creators we spoke to said that the main way they found their loyal subscriber base was through interaction and finding a niche.

Honey Gold, an award-winning pornstar who posts content on OnlyFans said: ‘It takes no time at all to find out exactly what your fans want, making it easy to provide them with the best content and keep them on-board as subscribers… ‘It’s really important to interact with your fans too – a lot of your subscribers will be paying for this reason alone. By doing this you can find out exactly what content to put out and build a really dedicated fanbase as you go.’
