The Game Of Scamming

I used to be so naive to scammers on the internet until I ended up being a victim, not once not twice but three times. Then I started paying attention to the emails and im’s and they are screamed scammer. There are so many scams I couldn’t even begin to list them but if it seems to good, it is.

There are the dating scammers that befriend you and three emails later they are in love with you and want to marry you. They get you to wire them money and they have poor writing skills. They pull images off the internet and you cannot trace their emails or ip address.

There are several precautions you can take to protect yourself:

copy and paste the pic of your new “interest” onto your desktop, then go to reverse image search at tineye.com and follow directions, the image will be located if available and they usually are.

Go to ip-adress.com – this site can trace the ip address from the header of  any email

DO NOT SEND MONEY TO ANYONE EVER OR PERSONAL INFORMATION IE; your children’s name, what you own, where you really live.

When joining a site do not use your real information unless you are placing an order with a reputable company.

Pet sales and scamming has soared as well so be very cautious

 

 

The Scam

Dating scammers are on the rise and I am one that has experienced it and learned a great deal from it. Scammers prey on the lonely, they are very good at making you feel good about yourself and they are master manipulators. They tell you they are in England or some other country and they lost their passport or some other bullshit and they get you to send them money.

They like Western Union because it is hard to trace in another country and you cannot get any help from our own law enforcement. They basically tell you that you have been duped and you are a dumbass for falling for the scam. You have to be very computer savvy and smart enough to get the ip-addy from any emails that are sent to you.

One good way to protect yourself is to use http://www.ip-adress.com, this site will help you weed out the scammers, first copy your email header and trace it, you will get the ip address, then take the ip-address and check it, it’s a fake ip or one in the middle of Kansas somewhere.

The damage these scammers do is unbelievable as they can destroy a person financially as well as emotionally. My daughter’s religion teacher is involved in a scam and she doesn’t even know it. She has told her students inappropriate things about her life and she moved to my state and knows nobody and has no friends.

There isn’t a dating site that the scammers are not on and they go after you as soon as you register onto a dating site you start to immediately receive emails  from the scammers telling you how good and honest men they are, how they are looking to get married and blah, blah, blah.

They don’t care if you send money to them for next months rent or for food, all they care about is the money and getting their hands on it. They do not care about you at all and only lead you to believe that they do and they will never return the money and do not give a shit if you starve or lose your place of residence.

I have learned not to fall for their trap and not a penny will leave my bank account to “help” anyone else. I am no longer stupid to the ways of the scammers and I have found you cannot meet anyone online because the scammers have infiltrated every site possible to meet anyone.

I fell for a scammer years ago and I am still trying to recover from the damage to my heart and bank account, yes I was stupid and sent money, not once but several times. I was sick at the time, I quit taking my meds for bipolar disorder and fell victim but I finally got help and got back on track with the meds.

I live on social security and at the time I cashed in my 401K and sent it away to the scammer. Do you think he cares? Do you think he will return the money? No way and yes he has asked for more money but that will never happen again. He doesn’t love me or give a shit about me and no we will never meet.

He is holed up with his lovely gf and I mean nothing to him, not a damn thing and no he doesn’t care what state of mind I am in or where I live. He just wants money, money, money because he is used to living the high life and yes he lost a lot in his divorce and he is rebuilding and stock piling cash to retire.

I thank God everyday that I have found out the truth and even though I am still somewhat emotionally attached to this person after all these years, I am no fool any longer and just waiting for the right guy to come into my life. Someone that cares about me and respects me for who I am and doesn’t ask for money.

Cheap

You can always tell a man who is cheap when you go on certain dating sites, most of the sites want you to join of course but I am not spending a dime because there are to many scammers on the sites.

The serious ones join and have full access. Not that they are serious either but you have a better chance of meeting someone who is a full member. My profile even says they need full access to contact me but the stupid fools still contact me and I cannot contact them.

No big loss as far as I am concerned, as I am in no rush to meet anyone as I must investigate them before I deal with them. O and let’s not forget my stalker, he’s already found me on one site, he wastes no time as he was already on there scamming away.

It’s so easy to tell a scammer when you have dealt with them before so I do not get my hopes up or waste too much time playing with them. It’s a shame life is like this but that’s the way it is and I deal with it accordingly.

My Fish

Well, I do believe I have caught the eye of my first scammer, how boring as the games do not keep me entertained.

No doubt it is my stalker and if it isn’t well he finally has competition. The scamming game is so routine, same shit different day. I already know how this is going to go so I deleted him from my yahoo and blocking him on the dating site. 

I will meet the right person in the right day and time and I am not in any hurry and just let life happen as it should. The profiles without pics are usually a real let down when you get the pic and that makes me feel bad because I do not want to hurt anyone’s feelings. When I am attracted, it’s instant and consuming, that has yet to happen.
