...and then some
BEWARE!....SCAMMERS ARE TROLLING 24/7! I met a beautiful 41 year old girl online..... I was so excited that I attracted a younger woman! I asked her why why she would be interested in a 55 year old man and she said, "age is just a number" (1st clue). I was delirious because I kept looking at her pretty face and was thinking about all kinds of good, fun things we would do together! So, a few days went by, we texted & traded photos and she told me she was traveling to Nigeria, Africa this weekend on an AIDS mission, I wanted to meet her before she left, she said she'd try but ended up that she was too busy getting ready for her trip (2nd clue). Her mission was to help the people over there to live and cope with AIDS (her mom died from AIDS). I kept looking at her beautiful face thinking that she would be mine when she returned to the USA. We continued to text daily, she sent me selfies whenever I asked her to (this was part of my test to see if she was real), she sent which seemed to be current pics of her with co-worker in scrubs, this added to my belief. I continued to think she was for real and was doing a good deed for humanity. A few more days went by and we shared more photos and a few more laughs. The next weekend arrives and she tells me her mission planned a trip outside of the city on Saturday, to help people that cant make it into the city. Saturday comes & goes..... I did not hear back from her for a full day which made me concerned for her safety. Monday, she finally got back to me and told me that their van had gotten hi-jacked and robbed and she lost everything; credit cards, passport, money, everything she had in her bag. (of course her cell phone was in her pocket when I questioned that) It seemed real if you put your mind into it and care about someone. I told her I wished I was there to console her, but there was nothing I could do. (except send money) This was my final clue, when she asked if I could send her money. Playing along now, I said, "I will if you provide me with your full name, address and the name of your local Bank in Wayne Pennsylvania. She said, "what do you need that for"? I said, "if I'm going to send you $500 I need it". This is when she said that she no longer wanted to communicate with me! So, BEWARE because there are BAD people all around. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is not!
