Consumer complaints regarding international scams can be reported online through Econsumer.gov. These are also entered into Consumer Sentinel, the complaint database maintained by the FTC, and are made available to enforcers and regulators in countries with participating agencies. Those agencies may use the complaints to investigate cross-border issues, uncover new scams, pursue regulatory or enforcement actions, and spot consumer trends.
This is a new thing, and it is happening to me. I am not on a domain and do not have the Creators Update. What is surprising is that there is little information about it online. You can read about it a bit here: windowsreport.com/restore-apps-pc-reboot What's strange is that I cannot find the settings to turn it on or off as that article describes. – jdgregson Aug 9 '17 at 19:22
This has been a difficult one for me to deal with-- it took a long time to build up some scar tissue here. In short, despite having the right ingredients (good idea, strong team, capital, etc.) and despite putting in the hard work, the vast majority of startups will still fail, for any variety of reasons (market shifts, funding environment changes, CAC is too high, etc.). Even though the high startup failure rate is a known fact, it still materially stings when I've worked for 6 or 9 or 19 months with a team, put in the sweat, blood and tears, been there in the trenches and along for the emotional roller coaster rides, and the company doesn't make it. I’m not sure it ever gets easier.

I have a number of start-up ideas and that was the ultimate goal. I began to get one off the ground, but realized I had to make money first. So, I started a digital marketing company. Bootstrapping and building companies from ground zero meant I had a lot of real world experience in a lot of areas from PPC, to video production to coding to design. I can do them all and reasonable well.
On 27 August 1992 Lennon's handwritten lyrics were sold by the estate of Mal Evans in an auction at Sotheby's London for $100,000 (£56,600). The lyrics were put up for sale again in March 2006 by Bonhams in New York. Sealed bids were opened on 7 March 2006 and offers started at about $2 million. The lyric sheet was auctioned again by Sotheby's in June 2010. It was purchased by an anonymous American buyer who paid $1,200,000 (£810,000).
[The Wellers, Skully’s founders] routinely demanded [that their accountant] engage in fraudulent bookkeeping practices designed to defraud investors in Skully into believing that Skully funds were being used for business purposes, when in fact, the funds were being used to pay the personal expenses of the Wellers … In hindsight, Skully appeared to be kind of shady for some time. The company continuously pushed back its promised release date while sucking down $2,446,824 from Indie GoGo backers—that’s 979 percent of the $250,000 “goal” they “needed” to get running.
The following weeks were spent frantically trying to recreate the company with my own vision, team, and set of investors. After realizing what a monumental task this would be, I started looking for other startups to join instead. When none of those doors would open I finally found myself applying for "corporate" jobs on company websites, a task that I was positive I would never need to undertake just a few weeks prior.
The funding and development stages of a startup vary significantly depending on the source of information used. However, while there is some overlap in the descriptors, it should be noted that this is appropriate. Each company is different, and various parts of these companies may be at different startup funding rounds. Here are the levels/stages of the funding life cycle, from the concept stage through the mezzanine financing stage (and finally, the exit stage).
You must estimate or determine recoverable units (tons, pounds, ounces, barrels, thousands of cubic feet, or other measure) of mineral products using the current industry method and the most accurate and reliable information you can obtain.

The London Symphony Orchestra released an orchestral cover of the song in 1978 on Classic Rock: The Second Movement. It was also covered by Barry Gibb in 1978 for the film Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and was included on the soundtrack of the same name, recorded in September 1977 and produced by Martin. Gibb's version was released as a single, with "Nowhere Man" as the B-side (also recorded by him and intended for the film). Also in 1978, his version was used as the B-side of Robin Gibb's version of "Oh! Darling" released only in Italy.

According to the recent Startup Genome Report, an estimated 90% of those startups that fail do so primarily due to self-destruction. It was their founders’ own bad choices or lack of preparedness rather than so-called “bad luck” or market conditions that were out of their control. Understanding your position in the business lifecycle just might help you stay a bit ahead of the game here and defy the odds, as you anticipate the potential challenges and obstacles that are upon you or are on the way depending on what phase you are in or about to transition to.
